I’ve been going to High George for a couple years and love it! Great location and ambiance. The staff at High George are phenomenal! They are always professional, courteous and accommodating. The food used to be interesting now it is fir lack of better wire “terrible”. I understand this is bar food, but paying $18 got 8 almonds with paprika (terrible) six olives ( only thing that was edible) and a few tasteless potato chips? Highly disappointing. The worst was the choice of “seafood” . We got cockles. They come in a tin, were salty and oily, inedible. Also FYI none of the choices were “date” food . Anchovies?
High George was awesome. As a person that eats at different restaurants, I liked the ambience and the atmosphere. Food is a little pricey. The salmon was really really good and the Brussel sprouts to die for. Butter nut squash soup as well. I wish they had mashed potatoes! They don't :) I would definitely come back.
Not advertised that they aren’t serving food anymore.
Came down to New Haven was staying at The Blake- was redirected from bar upstairs to downstairs bar/restaurant- much more what we needed- bar upstairs had just bar snacks no food!
They were very accommodating!
When it is busy it can be loud in there. Steak was a little tough but the tomato soup is out of this world.
Great place for a nice date downtown. The ambiance is nice and the drinks are good. The service was very attentive and the food was delicious too. It's hard to get a reservation for sunset time so plan in advance
Love the aesthic! The setting was perfect for date night or a girls night out. I wish I was there for sunset. I had a delicious dish of salmon.
It’s not really outside seating—they had the retractable roof partway open, but then closed it halfway through our meal. This was pretty frustrating because the reservation on Opentable said “outside” and I called to confirm that with the restaurant, which said, “It’s all outside seating.”
This was our first time and it was terrific. Great staff, incredible drinks and the space is such a plus for New Haven!!! The spicy tomato soup with grilled cheese crotons, the chicken liver pate, tuna tartare was delicious, then the pan roasted chicken was reminiscent of salt and pepper shrimp in the best Chinese restaurant. Also the smashed burgers was a hit...leave room for the gelato!!!
Absolutely loved it
the dining experience was amazing and the food was fantastic! only issue was trying to contact the restaurant because no one would answer the phone for 2 days! but eating there made up for it!
The cauliflower entree was good but the portion is too small. I almost never finish a meal but I felt like I needed to order more food after finishing it. I would recommend getting an appetizer if you are dead set on getting the cauliflower for your main meal. That being said, the food was very good & I’d be interested in trying more. The service definitely could have been more attentive, but the ambiance of the place was very nice.
Amazing food and gorgeous cozy little spot on the roof. Highly recommend.
Was not really outdoor dining as many of windows were closed
Everyone was so nice ! Food was delicious ! Music was great !!!
Outstanding atmosphere. Excellent food and service.
Wonderful roof top dining
We loved the rooftop dining experience at High George! The food was amazing and the staff was very friendly and attentive. This is a very cool spot and a must try for new haven locals and visitors!
Drinks were outstanding! Food was very good. It is a small place, so it can get a little loud, especially late in the night as the drinks get flowing. The sunset wasn’t great on the day my wife and I were there, but you can see how it could be beautiful. Overall, a nice spot for a date night or a night cap.
Food was delicious and the staff were very kind. The outdoor terrace was perfect on a summer evening - no bugs and perfect temperature.
Limited menus and no specials. Food was good, not outstanding and very overpriced. The location is beautiful. We were there on a 90 degree evening. I wish they had some shades, no way to get out of the sun. It was also a huge turn off that you had to give a credit card to make reservations and they charge you if you cancel late or no show. Also annoying that you get email confirmation request day prior and then they call you day of to confirm. You’d think it was Spago!!
It was marvelous in every way! LOVED the menu. The vibe was perfect for our annual girls night birthday celebration
food didn’t come out all at the same time. We had two people that needed to wait another 15 mins for their meals while everyone else waited to eat their own meals. So their food was cold by the time everyone had their plates. But overall it was a beautiful place and very friendly staff. Things happen! I would definitely come back :)
Good food, nice sunset, a bit noisy
It was my daughter’s birthday- no one acknowledged
The food is way overpriced and no one was crazy about their entrees.
We love to come here. That said, the menu keeps gerri g smaller and smaller, probably a reflection of the time in which we live. Food is delicious, drinks are perfect and the ambience is unmatched.
Delicious food and great service.
Excellent food and service! This was my fourth time visiting High George and they never disappoint! Highly recommend!
Rude staff - when original reservation was made on open table, we were not prompted to have to purchase an entree or two appetizers. Was told upon arrival that this was the case, even tho if this was meant to be a cocktail spot. Seated us in a very sub-par location and took >30 minutes to get first drink. Rooftop is beautiful and view is best in area. Drinks are weak and food is average at best. Ambience>food/drink
Excellent food service and atmosphere, great location. Good value for the price. When the sun is out it is way too strong on the half of the diner facing out with no blinds. A bit hot as well although fans move the air well
The food, drinks, and the ambiance superb. The sunset was gorgeous.
The menu was much improved from previous visits. Delicious, adequate portions. Only critique is that customers would benefit from some kind of shade from the afternoon sun - which was wonderful and blinding at the same time. Some kind of see-through shades that would at least mute the direct sun that happens right at the critical happy hour time would be a great improvement. Otherwise, great experience.
Amazing food and ambiance
Beautiful ambiance. Just enough lighting. Music level was perfect background. I was able to talk at a soft volume and everyone could hear each other. Friendly staff and excellent service. Food was impressive, yet it’s time for a new menu. The dessert (triple chocolate cake) was clearly commercial bought. It was ok, but would have preferred something more custom. Nonetheless, will return and recommend.
Wish the menu had more options but what I had was delicious
We had a great time! Everyone was so friendly and we were seated quickly! The food was all good and the signature cocktails were amazing as well! We will definitely be back!
Love, love the smoked turkey drummettes! Our waiter was beyond superb. This was my second visit and the menu seemed pared down a bit. Understandable given the times and pandemic. The only issue is the sun beating us up. This happened the first time as well. Not sure how to address this issue. Still, I would probably return.
