    Good food and choices Ambience is warm. Parking can be a problem - try the multistory carpark fairly close by No sign visible outside the restaurant - have to know it is 1 George Street

    Fantastic food and dining experience! Sainte-George never disappoints. Try the cornbread even if you think you hate cornbread because you will discover a little taste of culinary heaven with each bite.

    We enjoyed our dinner with excellent service ate outside with the view of the Castillo de San Marco , the red sangria was delicious, even the burger ,only down side is the traffic at night is too loud it makes it hard to hear ones conversation, and the chimichurre mixed with aoli was too salty , next time we will dine inside , it’s a beautiful restaurant,highly recommend

    Unfortunately I cannot recommend this place to anybody looking to have a nice meal in St Augustine. There are many options to choose from and this establishment isn't up to par compared to nearby restaurants. When you make a reservation and the only availability is to sit outdoors without a heater in 50 degree weather, I wouldn't call that a premium experience in correlation with the prices on the menu. Many more affordable places do offer this option to eat outdoors instead of a blanket (the solution offered). I'm not one to give bad reviews but this one is well-deserved.

    This was our first time eating there at your restaurant and I was more than impressed with the overall service. Your employees were the very best one can ask for. We love your city and visit about two times yearly. I will highly recommend your restaurant to all our friends. Thanks for the true service and hospitality.

    Would never come back here. Staff blamed new management. Went on Valentine day. Arrived at start of dinner service. They say you are outside. We say we did not request outside nor did we want to be there a 53 degree day. They say tough. Menu was extremely limited and the food was below average

    We booked for Valentine’s Day after looking at the menu online. When we arrived we found out that the menu did not apply. Instead they had a very limited Valentine’s Day menu. The only thing we could eat on this menu was an appetizer and a Cesar salad. The waiter offered protein for the salad. Each time we made a selection he returned to say that selection was not available. Clearly this wasn’t what expected from such a pricey restaurant.

    The service and food were excellent. However, the atmosphere and vibe were awkwardly uncomfortable. Us plus one other table were the only patrons. Also, there was no music (piped in would have been nice, not necessarily looking for live music) and no atmosphere on the upstairs outside deck, no candles on the table, just plain table. It was odd. I used my phone for dinner music.

    Overall this restaurant is not worth it. The service was terrible. The waiters grab whatever table comes and there are no sections. So getting a refill or forgotten food is impossible. The food was very small portions and we all left not feeling full at all. The dinner menu doesn’t have anything for vegetarians unless you want soup or salad. You are not going to get anything made your way here either. When we asked the waitress if we could get a grilled cheese from the lunch menu she acted like we asked for an organ donation from her. Just skip this one. There are plenty of other places to choose from.

    This was a nice restaurant and generally liked by our group. The only issue was with the swordfish I ordered. It was overcooked and tasted VERY fishy. Thank goodness there was some chimchurri sauce on the plate that I could dip it in to camoflague the strong fish flavor. I ate it, but didn't enjoy it. The rest of our meals, a pork chop and shrimp scampi got positive reviews. The service was prompt and the staff was lovely. We liked the upstairs room where we were seated, though the lighting seemed a bit too bright. We would return, but I would order differently.

    A coworker recommended this restaurant and I really wanted to love it but it wasn’t the best experience. Food was good, a little on the salty side. Service was not very attentive, forgot our app order and mixed up the entree order, we ordered a bottle of wine and had to serve ourselves. The place is cute though and I would come back and hope for better service.

    We arrived for our 12:00 P.M. reservation and the restaurant was CLOSED. The restaurant accepts reservations asks for a confirmation and then has a Closed sign on the front door. Quite a disappointment for a birthday lunch. Hopefully Open Table will find out what happened as we drove for an hour for this lunch date and then door is closed. We have several couples coming to visit Jacksonville and hoped to have dinner there but after this encounter will probably go to Collage or Old City Inn for dinner. A real downer.

    We went to the Sainte George for our anniversary dinner Saturday 1/6/24. It was nice and the food was INCREDIBLE. Dinner with 4 drinks, an app, two entrees and two salads was like $280 total including the 20% tip. Not bad at all! BUT our server at our table was the bartender also and while he was ... polite.... he couldn't have been more bothered to be taking care of us. He didn't tell us his name, he didn't tell us the specials, he didn't check on our drinks, he didn't bring us our meals (it was the kitchen's food runner I believe)... He got the orders right.... but outside of that there was zero interaction with us...We were even his customers at the bar prior to getting our table. When he was at our table, he didn't even say "Hi, have you had a second to review the menu?" He didn't say anything...like awkwardly silent... and we couldn't understand him hardly when he did speak. It wasn't a speech thing because I over-heard him talking to his co-workers just fine. I am not a complainer... like ever. I have worked in the service industry for years and have the most respect for the kitchen staff, servers, all of it.... Not to mention, we had a reservation for 7:00, and my sister, knowing it was our anniversary, called ahead Saturday afternoon and asked the manager to allow her to buy us two drinks on her credit card ahead of time as a little gift to us on our anniversary, and that wasn't brought up at all during our dinner. Of course, I didn't know about it then, but that same night once my sister asked if a round of drinks had been paid for..No??? So, we went back and the manager honored it and said she spoke to my sister personally and she "just forgot about it." The servers around us were so kind and bright and at least somewhat engaged with their tables. Ours FELT like...."can I help you? why are you here?" We felt uncomfortable and it was really weird and awkward the whole time. Again, clean, great GREAT food... beautiful setting, but won't go back

    We were there for a special occasion. Hoped to be seated on the patio, but knew that could not be guaranteed. We were seated at the door and they kept it open all night. It was freezing outside. We were freezing inside. It made us rush through dinner and we never even got to really see the “ambience” of there was any.

    Because we had children with us, as we came to realize, we were seating downstairs in the closet, aka ‘lounge’ next to an open door and window in 48 degree weather. No other patrons were seated in that area (except a woman and her child shortly before we left) and we had to wear our winter coats and listen to the kitchen staff pounding meat throughout our meal. There were also chairs with dirty laundry stacked in the corner of the room next to our table (which we rearranged to make more space). We asked to move but were told by the host it was not possible, despite other patrons with the same reservations who arrived after us being seated upstairs in the main dining room. The host was shockingly rude and we will certainly not return here when there are other fantastic restaurants nearby.

    I’ll try to write the facts without any emotion We arrived at 7pm on 12/28/23 per the OpenTables reservation. Was seated at a table on the 2nd floor The table was not setup. Just a flower Waiter introduces himself and leaves food menus He returns and we ask about cocktails. He brings that menu. He returns to take our order. He doesn’t take menus and table still not set. Cocktails arrive Appetizer arrives We place our menus on empty table nearby We have no utensils or plates. Had to ask and wait. More than half an hour passes Empty dishes from appetizers still on our table I am expecting soup, my wife expecting salad. No sign of our waiter We spot the manager to voice concern He leaves and soup, salad, salmon and pork chop show up at same time No spoon for the soup No knife for the pork We ask for the check. Waiter said he requested something be taken off the bill but manager refused Check comes. There is a mysterious extra $6 added to my cocktail. I point it out. Only $5 is removed! Waiter takes a dollar bill out of his pocket and apologizes. This is one star because the food was actually good.

    Very happy with the experience. Miguel was attentive, polite and provided great service. The chicken and waffles was a solid choice as was the cornbread which was freshly made to order. The crispy coating of the chicken was excellent! Enjoyed some Bloody Mary’s as well. Highly recommend and will return when I’m Saint Augustine. Thank you!

    Our reservation was for 2 at 7pm. Due to staff shortage including no hostess at the front entrance, we were kept waiting to be seated for 45 minutes. We understand that circumstances occur that cannot be helped, but overall our dining experience was good.
