    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.

    Patio weather at last! George’s has a terrific outdoor space & great food. We enjoyed the salmon salad and the house salad with shrimp add on. Our friends had a pizza (looked delicious), and the mussels. Looking forward to returning soon!

    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.

    The food was amazing as usual. The table where we were seated was right under several air vents and very cold. Our waiter was not very attentive. We had to ask for bread several time and it took way too long to get our wine. We will go back because we love the food and previously we had Martha as a server and she was awesome!

    Terrific, everything made in house food, and like a good bistro, a nice variety of classic comfort food. Service was friendly and attentive. Cocktail menu was limited but drinks were very well done. Wine list was thoughtful but pricey at 3-4x retail. Overall, a great neighborhood gem.

    Wanted to try this new neighborhood restaurant, and were more than pleased. Sat on the nice patio, inside is a little noisy, but outside was great-even on a hot evening -lots of cooling fans. Varied menu with an appetizer of their delicious risotto balls-so good. My husband and I had a great house salad and the branzino that was perfectly cooked served with delicious sauces and expertly deboned at the table by the very friendly manager, Angelo. Wanted to try one of their delicious-sounding desserts, but didn’t save room-next time, as we will definitely go back! Our waitress was wonderful! Bebe-I believe-but apologize if incorrect. She and her sister both work there. We loved her and the restaurant!

    This restaurant has good potential. The crispy chicken was excellent, as was the old fashion. They need more wait staff and a faster kitchen. The service was very slow.

    We were excited to try a new restaurant in the area. The build-out and space is appealing and very well done. Even at the end of the evening and when the restaurant was full, it was still pretty quiet and we were able to talk and hear each other. That being said, there were no large parties, many children or drunk people :) The bread that you get when you sit down is AMAZING!! We had two servings of it. Our waiter was ok, a little brusk, but ok. I had the cedar plank salmon and it was good, but a little over cooked for my taste. Lots of vegetables surrounded it. My friend had a salad with grilled chicken. She said the chicken was really bad and she couldn’t eat it. I have never in 30 years heard her say anything was bad so I totally believe her. We had a nice dessert to celebrate her BD. The waiter brought her the cake with a sparkler in it which was a nice touch. I will be back. It’s a nice option for the area.

    We were excited about this new restaurant in our neighborhood. Love the decor and vibe. However, just a few things to address: my husband had the shrimp arrabiata, which is listed under the “pasta” section of the menu however the dish arrived with NO pasta. Huh?! It also wasn’t spicy and the shrimp had heads and tails on . It was a lot of work and no pasta for $30. I had the rice balls, which were OK but quite plain - no meat or peas in the filling and the sauce was unusual. Not much tomato either, more of a creamy finish maybe due to lots of cheese?

    The food is great, especially the cacio e pepe! The waitstaff is helpful and attentive. The only disappointment was one of the house cocktails which was not good; however, the waitress was kind enough to take it back and let me order a glass of wine instead. Not sure about the bar but the food is delicious. We will definitely be back!
