    I loved the tea time at the Georgian! We got the Earl Grey which was fragrant and delicious. The berries were a lovely start and the tiers of scones, finger sandwiches and desserts all tasted delicious! I will be back!

    For such an expensive breakfast and a beautiful setting/great experience, the food was a letdown. My husband had the buffet and had to add salt and pepper to the eggs as they were very bland and tasteless. The pancakes were so-so and we overheard a guest telling someone one of the cups of fruit had mold on it. I ordered a frittata from the menu and it needed seasoning too. It was a very elegant setting though, and I know that is what we are ultimately paying for, but it really wasn't worth paying $60.00 for breakfast just to have good service and a great setting. The food should match as well.

    I love coming back several times a year to this great restaurant and for any celebration. We have been going to the Georgian for 15 years and the food has always been spectacular. It is a hidden gem that no one knows about except visitors that stay at the very high end hotel. Every dishes are presented in a very innovative way such as Foie Gras, Amuse Buche, Oysters, crab bisque. The soufflé is a perfect ending. If you like wines, you will like wine pairings or the wine list from a world class sommelier. If you like Canlis or Altura and cannot get reservations, try this restaurant. You will thank me.

    We ordered the Tasting Menu with the paired wines which proved a great choice. Service and presentations were stunning and there was a flourish to every dish. I love oysters but I never eaten them served on top of Ahi and they were delicious, as was the crab bisque. Bread service included 4 flavored butters, tempting us to excess. The Foie Gras to Short Ribs to Soufflé, we savored every bite of our five courses, and enjoyed every paired wine. For such elegance one expects a big tab but we felt the Tasting Menu represented a dining value for what we received, compared to ordering a la carte at many other restaurants. This is an excellent choice for pre-Theatre dining or a special night on the town. We expect to return with other guests.

    We chose The Georgian for a special occasion breakfast, but the inattentiveness of the service was quite a bummer for everyone in our party -- waited way too long to order and had to flag down the waiter, those who ordered buffet ate with dirty plates still on the table after their second round, and we waited a long time for the check after finished. Clearly out of line with the expectations of a Farimont, the beautiful ambiance, and prices charged for the experience.

    Great atmosphere and attentive service. Very marginal food at expensive prices. We won't be back. Why? There are so many other great restaurants in Seattle. I really got a sense the Georgian has a problem. It's "dated." Very few customers in a large gorgeous dining area.

    I chose the Georgian because of its ambiance and because, last year, we had had a gourmet lunch experience there. I knew the service was excellent and that going there for lunch befit a special occasion for one older and three younger women. This year, however, I was disappointed in the food. My crab salad had so much onion it was hard to taste the crabmeat. On only iceberg lettuce, it lacked the tastier mix of greens I've found elsewhere. In addition, the presentation was prosaic--just piled into a bowl. The service was still good and I appreciated both the time and ability to hear all our conversation. Do make sure all your guests arrive or you will have to pay for their absence.

    Very relaxing quite dining in old world elegance. Food variety was excellent and the dishes were extremely interesting. Two of us had the rack o fLamb and the others Salmon and a Lobster/Halibut combination. All were excellent however the lobster dish stood out as the best. We were particularly happy with how quiet the dinning room was. Forgot to mention that the Fois Gras was tremendous if you are into that dish.

    The Georgian Room continues to be the best restaurant in the City. I have eaten in most of the good places in Seattle and Bellevue and none of them are better, and most aren't even close. The portions are very large. We each took home enough food to have a second dinner. Several months ago we were in Paris and ate at 3 three star Michelin restaurants. The Georgian room can easily stand up to them in quality, service and ambiance. They have a great wine list and the maitre d', Joseph, is very knowledgeable about wine. They even have a lovely combo playing on Saturday night. It is even on the Passport card which gives you one entree free.

    Had to try The Georgian while in Seattle which meant making an exception to my rule-of-thumb to never dine in a hotel restaurant. Started out with the hot/cold oyster appetizer which was presented flawlessly and tasted heavenly. The main course was halibut and lobster. Presentation was simply over the top, but taste was disappointing. The dish was described as broiled in butter, but very little butter to be found; both the halibut and the lobster were too dry. I would rate the dish only "OK" because the flavor and texture did not live up to the level of the presentation, or the price tag for that matter. Desert was crème Brule, again great presentation but this time taste and texture held up providing a nice finish.

    The Georgian is as elegant as the Fairmont hotel. Romantic place for a special occasion. The food, wine and service were excellent. The only suggestion I have is that they should enforce a dress code. You pay decent amount of money for fine dining. It's in poor taste when guests are dining in T-shirts and shorts.

    A well thought out dinner menu with fresh ingredients, a nice variety of dishes for all the courses, which they also give you suggestions of excellent wine pairing and a menu that is not heavy with inappropriate dishes just for the sake of increasing quantity at the expense of quality. Truly a gem for the person who enjoys excellent food and a soothing ambiance, thank you Georgian for a memorable evening.

    This restaurant is the antithesis of "trendy" - except in the use of local foods. What a wonderful elegance, coupled with outstanding food, beautiful presentation, and great service. At one point in our anniversary dinner my wife commented "We could be in Paris". And I would add "in London, or Vienna, or Prague, or Rome". The timeless elegance of this dining room would fit in any great cosmopolitan city in the world. We're just happy it's in Seattle.

    We have been to the Georgian several times before plays at the 5th Avenue theater. It is by far one of our favorites. Everyone at our table got something different and everyone left happy. The wait staff was great. We love their macaroons and were bummed to not see them on the menu, but our waitor found some and brought them out for the table. They were delicious and they didn't even charge. We love that the Georgian makes you feel special. They really go above and beyond to make your night wonderful.

    It was my sister's birthday and we loved that we could talk and linger over really nice food served in a lovely atmosphere. We always used to bring our mother, now gone, to the Georgian room for special occasions, so it was nice for that reason as well. There are few restaurants remaining where background piano music is played and the feeling of being somewhat special is promoted.

    The Georgian provides the hospitality and decorum one expects in truly fine dining. The service is exquisite without being overbearing or pandering. The food, from the amuse bouche to the truffles was perfectly prepared and served at our pace, once we requested it be slowed down to allow us to enjoy our drinks. If you are looking for a memorable dining experience and can afford to indulge; this is a must-do.
