    The food was typical hotel food, slightly dry pasta and slightly flavored meat. The salmon was fine - and the vegetables were under seasoned. The waitress informed us that they could only do 1 dish gluten free, but we were told before we arrived that there were plenty of GF options. She told us the mashed potatoes had milk, and another dish had cheese - so were not GF. For this price, the wait staff should know what is/isn't gluten free. The dish still came with the mash potatoes, and was then taken back, and then she brought them BACK saying "oh they don't actually have gluten". She then took one plate whilst the other person was still eating.

    Our anniversary celebration at By George was an unforgettable experience, largely thanks to the exceptional service provided by Irish. She went above and beyond, ensuring every moment was special. The entire staff, including Irish, wished us well, creating a warm and welcoming atmosphere. The food was outstanding, a delightful fusion of flavors. Overall, By George exceeded our expectations, making our special day truly memorable. We're grateful for the outstanding service and look forward to returning for future celebrations. Highly recommended for a remarkable dining experience.

    I love this rerstaurant - quiet, civil, excellent service, great menu and very good food. the only thing that would make it better is for them to bring back the piano music they first had. Then we would come all the time, not just when we are coming downtown

    Stunning location and ambiance. Food quality cooking and taste was excellent. Portion sizes were slightly smaller for main course, but the side order of asparagus was larger than expected. Best red velvet cake I've ever had. Drinks were great. Staff catered excellently. Would without a doubt return for another dinner.

    We had a lovely dining experience at By George. My husband had the soul and I had the Tagliotini Primavera, both delicious meals and perfect portions. Our server was pleasant and attentive. I wish I could remember her name to give her a shout out. We were celebrating my birthday and had a lovely complementary cheesecake for dessert. It was special evening and will be a nice memory.

    $20 plain pancakes should not be served with plastic packets of high fructose corn syrup masquerading as maple syrup. And if the French toast is listed as brioche, serve brioche. Instead we were served plain white bread. The whole experience felt cheap because of the food, in spite of the environment. The space is gorgeous and the service was fine but the food was unacceptable at that price point. We should have gone to Waffle House.

    New Year’s Eve dinner at 8:00pm. We were met with friendly smiles from the hostess and servers. Our server was delightfully personable with a great sense of humor and was very attentive to us in spite of the large numbers of tables she tended. Nobody batted an eye when I mentioned my gluten and casein sensitivities or asked if the feta was made with cow or sheep milk. The chef prepared my scallops and vegetables with seasoned oils instead of butter and my dinner was absolutely delicious. A great chef always knows how to modify a dish without sacrificing taste! The restaurant is located in The Candler Building and was beautifully restored with the hotel. I highly recommend By George and will likely dine there again the next time I’m in Atlanta.

    This was a terrible experience. We went on a busy Saturday morning. The restaurant was completely overwhelmed and the service was terrible. It took 10 min. for the server to come to the table and 40 minutes to get our drink order. We had to pay the bill and leave after 50 minutes with no food. Other tables around us had waited over an hour with no food and were also leaving. Even on a busy weekend, the restaurant should be prepared to efficiently handle service.
