    We had a nice business meeting under the tree (inside) at Georgie's, and both enjoyed our meals. She had a lobster roll and I enjoyed a Mahi BLT (without the B). Fries were crisp and delicious, service was prompt, professional and not intrusive. Definitely a go-to spot for lunch (or dinner or brunch)!

    I had been to Georgies earlier in the year for Sunday brunch and found the experience to be delightful. This time, however, we had a server that was obviously brand new and they had recently reworked (and shortened) the menu. What was online was no longer available once we were in the restaurant. The food was still very good but the options were very limited. As far as the service goes, our server was slot to recognize that we didn't have what we needed, didn't really pay attention to when we needed more coffee and never brought sugar or asked if we needed any. Overall, the service and the menu didn't measure up to my previous experience.

    Music not conducive to customers trying to enjoy dinner. Have to yell across the table This place needs to decide if’s a wannabe ny bar or a restaurant Often amazes me how management completely ignores the age and social status of the people sitting right there in front of them. When we were there people 60s to 70s, families, older couples and the restaurant is playing load bad disco, pop-rap “music”. .. loudly. No sense of customer experience Fish was chewy - need to hire a restaurant specialist and not a bar guy who’s pretending to know the restaurant business

    I’ve been to brunch at Georgie’s cafe and never had bad experience. This was the first time having dinner. Menu online must have not been updated because when we got there it was limited. I had the flank steak with chimichurri sauce. It was not hot when it came out and could have had a little more flavor. The cost of food for the way it taste is not worth it. $300 for four people including two glasses of wine and one of meals was kids meal is ridiculous. Think they are trying to be upscale but just not there. The service though was exceptional and very attentive.

    They took the chicken wings off the menu and they were amazing. The food overall wasn't as good as the last time I was there. The music at the bar had very loud base that was conflicting with the music in the restaurant.

    This is an ambitious restaurant that doesn't meet the bar set by its competition around UTC. The food was only fair. I got a dish that contained mussels and clams in the shells, and none of the clams were open. That's something even a good amateur chef wouldn't serve. The restaurant also had a limited wine selection, and the menu was different from one on-line. The place is pretty enough, and the waitstaff was friendly, but the prices were high and not justified by the food in my opinion. I suspect they may be in the midst of an upgrade, and I would be happy to see them succeed. But based on my experience I would not recommend them today.

    We were there for my daughter’s acceptance into PT school. I did note is was a special occasion but they didn’t acknowledge it. The drinks and food were good, with the exception of the sliders and key lime tart. The wagyu sliders could have had a little more meat on them. The key lime tart was explained as having torched meringue on top. It was so small, only a tartlet, not a slice of a tart and topped with whipped cream. It was not worth the $12 price tag. I will pay for good food, but that was not worthy at all and very underwhelming for the scale of restaurant.

    Oh the humanity! STAY AWAY!!! Please! If Georgie’s could do it badly, they did it… badly. I thought being seated at a table that was too small for dinner service and getting a Martini served in a champagne glass was odd… and even though they couldn’t produce the riesling they promised my wife that they had, THIS was to be the highlight of our visit. We ordered wedge salads that were fine, but they took 20 minutes to arrive. The meals (a 6oz medium -medium well filet and a skirt steak dinner) were served - literally - one minute after the salads! As the table was too small for the server to set the entrees down, we asked to have them kept warm in the kitchen. A full 20 minutes later (really!) the entrees were returned … COLD. So, we rightly sent them back… and after yet ANOTHER 20 minutes, they were returned to us redone. “That’s better” we thought, until we found that the steak was served rare (ordered medium-medium well) and the skirt steak? An unappealing, inedible hunk of gristle. Richie, our server (who was a good server stuck in a bad restaurant) was visibly embarrassed and offered us a “free cookie skillet” to makeup for this debacle of a meal. But that, not surprisingly, was inedible as well as it was served RAW. The particular gastronomic insult that we endured at Georgie’s took a full 2 hours and yes, in the end we paid the bill… but more so that the embarrassed Richie could get a tip, not for anything the restaurant provided. Folks, there are a great many other establishments close by that actually KNOW what they’re doing. We STRONGLY urge you to choose - and enjoy - one of those.

    The food was absolutely delicious! My lobster roll was the best around but pretty expensive. I still would get it as I loved it. The fries were outstanding...crispy with a nice salt spice on the outside and completely done inside. I want the secret! The waitress was very friendly and checked on us constantly. There were very many having lunch when we did but it was a delightful experience.

    We went for the 3 course fixed menu dinner meal. I had the meatballs, which were too dry, over cooked. My date had the roasted beets, which were very good. We did not even have time to enjoy our first appetizer, when they delivered our meal of grilled mahi-mahi. The mahi-mahi, was very good. Then dessert was a supposedly cooked cookie, which was not fully cooked. That was just left uneaten. Order a bottle of Chardonnay, which was very nice.

    We had a lovely dinner last evening with our friends. Kaz was our waiter and he made our evening. Personable, funny, and attentive. I had the Paloma Margarita cocktail -good choice. The shrimp tacos were delicious! It was a beautiful evening so we ate outside. The only disappointing thing ( and not the restaurant's fault) was crazy young adults cruising the parking lot revving their engines or playing rap at a million decibels. Maybe we will eat inside next time! :)

    We arrived at 6:25 for our 6:30 reservation. We were seated and after 10 minutes no waiter or waitress came over to our table and it was not busy at all. I finally said something to the hostess and she said someone would be right over. After waiting another 10 minutes with no one coming over we ended up walking out and the hostess said have a nice night….not even realizing that it was us. It was our first time there and I was disappointed because I wanted to try their food. I would like to give them a second chance but I would hate to see how we would be treated if they were busy.

    Returned for brunch, looking forward to the French toast. The dish has changed from the outstanding brioche French toast previously served. The latest version was flat, dry, and disappointing. It should not even be on the menu after the previous version that was well worth a visit for.

    This is a very pretty restaurant. Lovely for a ladies’ brunch! The service was better than most places, although the kitchen was a little slow. The food was fine but not exceptional. Pricey, but what isn’t? I liked the option of a plus sized mimosa served with a cute rubber ducky! I will go back to try the Happy Hour.

    The food is excellent, except for the roasted beets. Service can be excellent depending on your waitperson. The music is VERY loud and disruptive to a pleasant dinner. The acoustics make the voices of other guests so loud that along with the annoying thump, thump, thump of the music — it’s hard to hear dinner companions. Hostesses are young and dressed in skimpy dresses. Inappropriate for a restaurant of this level. And, it appeared that waiters were dressed in long pants and long sleeved shirts, but waitresses were dressed in skin tight spandex. More like Hooters. If the music and attire of the women employees were addressed, this would be a top restaurant.
