Contemporary Southern
AN ECLECTIC BISTRO WITH CONTAGIOUS ENERGY Curated from the personal experiences of Chef George Lazi, George Artisan brings the best of the South of France to the American South in Pensacola, by way of Manhattan. COMFORTING FAVORITES. SURPRISING DISCOVERIES. From the early morning hours to the last glimpses of the evening, George serves food that focuses on the simplicity and freshness of the ingredients. Our breakfast offerings are both sweet and savory, and our lunches consist of the freshest salads and sandwiches. The atmosphere changes as the candles are lit for dinner. Choose among our Sharing Plates or local favorite entrées such as our Fruits de Mer Squid Ink Spaghetti. On the weekends, the focus turns to brunch in a fun and energetic atmosphere with short rib hash and smoked salmon poached eggs that are perfect with signature mimosas and cocktails, like our Champagne Pop.

We only had one server for our area and while he dealt with the challenge very well, it was apparent at first when we waited 10 minutes to see him and another 10 for water. Again I attribute this to overall staffing, not George our server as he was extremely professional and accommodating.

There were 6 of us and everyone enjoyed their meal as well as the cocktails.

All in all, we had a good experience and will definitely go again.

George is the best resturant in the Southeast. It is like going to the best restaurant in New York without having to fly there. From the Host to Nadine our server everyone was amazing. Our meal was perfect in every way. We are always treated like the most important customer in the dining room. Absolutely the best!

It was a gorgeous Spring day to celebrate Easter. Food was very quickly delivered and everything was perfection. We sat outside and our table was wobbly and the table next to us was very loud, but otherwise, we could not have had a better brunch!

Our server was super attentive but I can’t remember his name. My first time there and I was blown away with everything! I felt like I was in NYC at a world-class restaurant! The food was absolutely delicious! I had the fried artichoke and then shrimp and grits. Everyone at my table was impressed as well. Can’t wait to come back! Off the chain good!!

I brought my wife here for dinner on her birthday, and we had an amazing meal. My grouper special was one of the best grouper entrées that I have ever had. Our service and the atmosphere were excellent. We enjoyed it so much we came back the following day for their Sunday brunch, and it was likewise excellent. Highly recommend!

Excellent brunch at George’s. Our service by Christine was just fantastic. Our food was served very promptly, hot and wonderful. We brought 3 people with us that had never been here and they really enjoyed there time. We also ordered watermelon mimosas they made fresh and just perfect. Well done. Also we made reservations with opentable and that was a big plus for our experience.

I can rarely pass on the salmon entree---fabulous! The large parking lot was filled . . . so happy to see this restaurant thriving in this part of town.

The food was amazing. Had the filet and chicken so yummy. Cameron was our server, he was professional and great at knowing the menu. He knew the specials and did well dealing with a custom home didn’t remember his name at first. Great Aryana wonderful time. I suggest you try it if you haven’t already.

I'd recommend George's. The food is good. Servers can be pushy with add-ons and prices are on the high side; especially for the location of the restaurant. Overall a good experience with room for improvement.

I wanted to really like this restaurant. The service was excellent. The atmosphere was nice but I was not impressed with the food. I ordered the quiche and was disappointed. The quiche from panara bread is much better. I expected more.

Our Waiter George was OUTSTANDING. There were 4 of us in for an early dinner. None of us had been there before. The eggplant appetizer was delicious, the Pastrami sandwich and truffle fries were wonderful. Ended with tiramisu and Peanut Butter Blossom both of which were perfect. Can’t wait to go back!

I have only 4 words for you to remember: Get the short ribs! Honestly, they are amazing, I'd say fall off the bone tender, but they already did! Served over creamy mash with a demi-glace, yum! Our server, Lara, was very conversant with the menu and wine list so she was able to make some recommendations for us. She was attentive without hovering so we had an enjoyable dining experience. We'll definitely be back, I might try the roast chicken next time which looked delicious as it was served to a nearby table.

We loved the dinner, the chef was amazing! My wife had the ribs, and I the chicken. We had the pear gorgonzola tart as an appetizer which was a wonderful very subtle in flavor start to the meal. The winner in my view was the kale with garlic and nuts which filled my taste buds with joy in every bite. The coffee was excellent and the peanut butter bliss was the top of the ladder for a shared desert. This is definitely the best restaurant in Pensacola!!!!

Plenty of choices, best in service, food was made fresh and served hot. My wife and I both had clean plates when finished. We live in Orange Beach, 1 hour away, well worth the drive. Oh yea, we Couldn’t decide on which item to start, so they they sent us home with the Pear dish we did not choose so we could try it. They also gave us a bread pudding to go for our anniversary, 1st. Lass all the way. Enjoy.
