We had a wonderful dinner and were sorry we weren't going to be in Mobile long enough for another visit All three courses we had were just lovely. Creative cooking with a southern twist. Can't wait to get back here for another visit.

While the food was very good the presentation of the crab salad and the amount provided was less than expected. It paled in comparison to the shrimp and corn soup.

Good wait staff; observant but not intrusive
Noise a bit more than I would like for a business dinner, but I could have mentioned that to the Maitre d’ and been seated in a quieter spot, so that’s NOT a negative.
Food outstanding; definitely note the changes in the menu, which are in keeping with the season. Fish very fresh and appropriately cooked and served with complimentary flavors and textures.
Definitely warrants a return trip or two; may become a standard for us.

Since the first time KOG opened I was disappointed in the food. It has always been one of my favorite places and I have always loved the food. However, this trip my husband and I were not impressed with the taste. I had Bouillabaisse and my husband had the Black drum meals and neither one of them had much flavor. We will got back because everyone has a bad day now and then.

Prefer buffet brunch, we came last year for brunch thoroughly enjoyed brunch. We ordered from menu this time some in our party were not satisfied.

Very disappointed, to hear you are not having buffet anymore. Will rethink my location for Sunday brunch.

Service was great. Our waiter recommended a great, reasonably priced bottle of wine. The food was good but a tad over-salted. My husbands fish was extremely dry but it had good flavor. Overall good food and great experience.

This was a second time attending service at Kitchen on George. The food was just as well as I remembered, service was top notch; however, the noise level was a little more rambunctious than I remember as we were seated near the bar.

We have been going here for years and this is the first time we have left hungry and disappointed. We ordered the lettuce wrap appetizer , a beef tenderloin and the duck breast with vegetables for my wife. When her dish arrived, there was a smallish breast and 5 carrots along with a very small portion of the other veggies. The appetizer appeared to have more food than her entree. While the food tasted great, the portion was hardly worth $30+.

Please be careful with what you order and ask about portion sizes before you order.

Food was excellent however the service was so impersonal and unfriendly it shaded the evening. Whilst it was also very busy there was a church like atmosphere inside with diners appearing afraid to be heard. Great food but not so atmosphere and service.

I have been looking forward to dining at Kitchen on George for almost a year now and with belated Valentines Day dinner as a great excuse, my wife and I were excited about going.
The location is a little bit outside of downtown Mobile so if staying at a hotel, you would need to drive or cab it over. It is right down the street from the Oakleigh Museum grounds so you could make it an afternoon and early dinner thing.
The ambience was great although a few style choices were a bit off(what is with those oversized lighting fixtures in the center dining room?) The center room was quieter than the large room and the bar area if that suits you.
As for the food.....this was very imaginative and flavorful. Tempura veggies to start and they were abundant with 2 dipping sauces. Green beans and mushrooms. Nicely done.
Main course were both very good with my wife having the leg of duck with cherry sauce and my choice of bouillabaisse being one of my favorite dishes. The serving of seafood in the bouillabaisse was abundant but the broth was only a small amount. It tasted great with the smell of saffron wafting over the bowl but a little more would have been just right.
Bread and butter were provided but almost as an after thought when I saw the table next to us being served theirs.
In fact if there was one prevailing issue at KOG, it was the service. When we sat down the table cloth had a good sized stain from the prior diner. We asked to be relocated to a nearby table but we were refused as the empty tables were spoken for I guess. I had to run out to fetch my wife's wrap since we were under an A/C vent that would not stop despite our request to turn it down.
I understand that this restaurant uses culinary students and I totally support that as my son is a former culinary student who also worked in the dining room and kitchen. Maybe a little better coaching would help.

Edgar was our waiter and he was outstanding. Our cocktails were simply delicious. We had the mushroom sup. the salmon brie salad and the shrimp and grits. All were wonderful. The farm to table aspect of the dining experience sets it apart. The lively, fun atmosphere makes it a joyous event to dine at Kitchen on George. The portions are perfect and the prices are fair. We will be back again and again.

Aspirationally the best restaurant in Mobile, KoG is foremost a cooking school, which accounts for its uneven performance. Ambiance is pitched exactly right, with tasteful understatement, yet only a few tables (and no chairs!) conduce to leisure. Custom cocktails are excellent, but followed by three "snacks" of huge proportion: a brigade of tempura green beans and onions; three forearm-sized duck spring rolls; and a spread of local vegetables on fresh cheese, which alone could be a full lunch for two. Next comes a deconstructed West Indies salad interwoven with thin ciabatta toasts, a simple misfire. Panagia greens salad arrives half-dressed, barely edible. Pork griot is tasty but spare, accompanied by too many anhydrous orange lentils. In short, capable of excellence but focused on learning. By all means support them, but don't get expectations too high.
