    First time for brunch. All age ranges in our party. Everyone found a favorite. The French toast cotton candy was awesome. Avocado Crab toast so good. Portions large enough to be split. Very nice patio.

    They have a wonderful selection of appetizers and salads. We ordered the beat salad and it was delicious! They have these lovely sweet potatoe tater tots with a maple syrup that was incredible! Also shared the past with pine nuts and grilled chicken- this pasta was phenomenal, and the pine nuts and pesto were a great compliment! As if we needed anything more- we shared the strawberry shortcake at our waiters suggestion- and the balsamic ice cream should be sold by the gallon! We loved it!!!

    Last night was our second time to dine, and we looked forward to a great meal based our first experience a few weeks ago right after their initial opening. Overall, the food taste was not as good as our earlier visit. In particular was the French fries that came with the George Kobe burger, which we recalled to have this flavorful truffle oil flavor. But this time, it was much more muted (non-existent) and when I raised with the waiter, she indicated they still use the truffle oil. I told her that I didn’t really taste it and later, she came back with a small container truffle oil, which we thought to be a nice gesture. The truffle oil made a huge difference in the taste but when I got our check, I was a bit disappointed that we were charged $4 for the oil. We didn’t order the oil and felt a bit slighted with the uninformed up charge.

    The food literally had NO seasoning…none. Overpriced food with no flavor. Ordered the short rib, it came out with a strip of brown country gravy on top (interesting??), zero seasoning on the meat and the gravy was bland. My friend ordered the burger and it was dry. The brussel sprouts were chargrilled with absolutely no seasoning. The bread was good and the arancini appetizer was ok. Very disappointed. Cute restaurant. Service was great.

    George’s Bistro is a very nice addition to the West University neighborhood. Food (calamari, house salad, short ribs, terra pizza) was all delicious. The patio is lovely and cozy and the inside seating had a very pleasant vibe. Service was warm and friendly. And the noise/music level was just right. Can’t wait to return.

    I chose this restaurant to celebrate my birthday. I was very pleased with the service and quality of food. I ordered the gnocchi with a cerviche starter. Both were excellent and I’d definitely come for them and to order more of their creative, tasty dishes.

    I was a little disappointed. We sat at our table for a good twenty minutes until I got up and asked if we had a server. Our service continued to be slow the entire evening. We waited just for drinks for another twenty minutes. The food was just okay. We had calamari for appetizer and it wasn’t cooked enough the crust was almost white. The entire was a beef short rib. The picture on website looked great. The one we got did not haves the same presentation. It was a mediocre it taste, texture and was a little chewy. The potatoes it came with were not the best either. I’m glad we tried it. I would not go back. Everyone has different taste and this may be your place! It is noisy and not cozy. They do have outside area which may have a better ambiance to it.. good luck and happy eating!

    We love George's We really like the food. This was my mom's 5th visit and my third. We were excited to take my son on Friday night. We had a 7 p.m. reservation and arrived on time and were seated right away. We ordered drinks and then some appetizers. The appetizers arrived right away, but the drinks had not come. We ordered our entrees and our drinks still had not come. Very rushed and poor service. We finally got our pre dinner drinks after our entrees arrived only after asking for them. We were in the car at 7:45, $200 for a very rushed dinner. It was not the relaxing evening we had planned. We all left feeling frustrated. It will be a while before we come back and never again on a weekend.

    We had the mussels appetizer and The George hamburger, Pappardale Bolognese, Salmon, and the mushroom pizza. Everything was delicious. The truffle fries that came with the George was crazy good. The only downside, albeit a small one, is that it was a bit tight, space wise.

    The food was great. Michael N was terrific. George stopped by at the table to say hello and get feedback. It was a bit noisy out on the deck mostly due to one group. Much better when they left.

    The food was excellent. We loved the flatbread and delicious seasoned butter served before the meal. The calamari appetizer was excellent. Our pasta dishes were both exceptional as well. I loved the gnochi with brussel sprouts and mushrooms, seasoned perfectly. They have a great wine list and delicious desserts. We were lucky enough to get a patio reservation and with the weather cooling off, it was perfect and such a nice ambiance. I highly recommend George's.

    I made a reservation for a patio table when we arrived. I was told there were no patio tables, and that other people had made patio reservations! We were offered a table inside, which did not have the same ambience. Our waiter was very pleasant and helpful and the food was good, but over priced I was especially surprised by an up charge for a martini! $14 for the vodka +3 dollars for the martini!?!

    So excited to try out a new local restaurant. I thought everything was great. Thought the tables were a bit close. We had a problem with a wine glass breaking and I thought that the staff should have offered to refill or credit the glass of wine. Other than that, I would go back and possible do the outside patio. Our salad was yummy, burger as well. Prices not bad.

    We had brunch in the patio. The waiter argued with me about the difference between regular coffee and a Americano. Went downhill from there. Pancakes with no butter and minimal syrup. We asked for butter and he was not happy. He brought us butter so cold even the knife could not cut. I understand it’s a new restaurant and staff are hard to find however the bartender was standing around talking to another waiter. We live nearby and will try again. Just a disappointing first visit.

    I don't normally write reviews but I feel when a new neighborhood restaurant opens up it's important to give feedback. I have been twice and both times had the same male waiter. Very disappointed with the level of service especially with what the avg meal price point is of the Restaurant. This last visit was on a slow Tuesday night and our meal of a burger and salad took 30 min. Both meals were great but the salad was delivered without the accompanying dressing. Our waiter never once came by to ask how our meal was and had to flag him down to get the check. No offer of dessert which is basic "server 101". Our server was definitely more concerned with the nearby 6-top table. I've heard from several friends that their service experience was also poor. Hopefully management will work with their servers to improve in the this area because the food is delicious.
