    I dined here solo to enjoy the restaurant week offerings. I knew it was a good choice when they offered me a newspaper. That's a classic way to accommodate a lone diner. The food was excellent, as was the service. I was never made to feel like a second class citizen because I came for restaurant week. All in all; great food, beautiful setting, and top-notch service.

    Other than a couple of important issues that we were not impressed with, the food was absolutely wonderful. The restaurant did not have record of our Open Table res. Even though there were plenty of tables free and I had a copy of the confirmation with me, the hostess hummed and hawed and went on and on searching for the res, until she finally told us it is totally fine and seated us. In our opinion, she should have made note of the res. number to make sure they followed up with Open Table to make sure it did not happen again. She should have also not let on it was a problem. Also, our server was not very well trained, which was a bit of a shock and effects your experience in such a beautiful place. Thankfully the food was awesome!!

    The location and setup for the Georgian is great. The food tasted amazing and the service could not have been better. I will keep this place in mind for the next time I take my wife out for a special quiet dinner. They even included a special little something, showing they paid attention to the note that I included in my reservation stating this was a dinner for my wife's birthday.

    There is nothing outstanding about the Menu at the Georgian. If you want a beautiful, romantic place to dine the Georgian is a great place. If you are a foodie looking for a 5 star dining, you better look elsewhere.

    To me, a great dining experience consists of three things: nice ambiance, outstanding food and impeccable service. In previous visits, the Georgian Room has scored highly in all three categories. This time, however, we were let down by the service. We arrived at 6:15 and let our server know that we had symphony tickets for 8:00. We made sure to ask if anything we ordered would present a problem with timing. I ordered the three-course special which consisted of an appetizer, an entrée, and a dessert; my wife ordered an appetizer, a salad, and an entrée from the regular menu. By the time both entrées arrived we were getting pressed for time and had to request our check before dessert arrived in order to make the concert.

    Took my Mother and Brother to the Georgian for Afternoon Tea and Lunch. It was amazing. The service was friendly and efficient, and the ambiance was nice. My Mother and I had the Afternoon Tea, and it was amazing, my Brother went for the burger and fries which he enjoyed thoroughly. I would definitely recommend this to anyone, the menu was reasonably priced and affordable for a special occasion.

    with great food, beautifully plated and carefully served. Great to bring friends or business associates as the low key atmosphere allows for conversation. The service is unobtrusive but first-class. The dining room is a must experience: Old World but - like all Fairmonts - the interiors are updated and meticulously neat and clean. It's a hidden gem!

    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.

    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.
