    3 hours before I was to go to see a theatre show, the show was cancelled. The information was yet to be released to public. I called George’s to cancel my booking for two. Was asked by Mr Rude for a reason and I advised I couldn’t give one yet as it was yet to be released to public. Mr Rude said unless I give a reason, I’ll be charged $40 cancellation. I said I would call back shortly with my reason. Mr Rude then rung me, whilst I was at work and advised I must give him a reason and was very rude and I found this inappropriate. About 30 mins later it was released and I rung to advise my reason for cancelling was the theatre show I was going to was just cancelled. 1.5 hours later I was called again by Miss Confused asking me why I was not there for my 6pm booking. I didn’t get charged a cancellation fee in the end but oh my, rude rude rude and poor customer service.

    Booked a dinner with my girlfriends as we’ve enjoyed nights at the George in the past. Our server failed to place all items ordered through the system, meaning our appetisers took over an hour to come out. We were constantly asked by multiple servers if we were waiting on more dishes. Clearly a display of miscommunication between the team and extremely disruptive to our evening. The roti came out burnt to a crisp!! Hello….. carcinogens are real, also who wants burnt roti. When ordering drinks we had to constantly remind staff we were waiting, how difficult is it to reorder a glass of red. We were then kicked out as soon as we finished our meal, yet we arrived at 7:30 and it took till 10:30 to finally finish dessert due to the poor service and flow of our meal.

    The George on CollinsResponded on May 24, 2022Dear Marie, We're sorry to hear about your disappointing experience with us. We aim to provide the best service for all our customers and we clearly didn't fulfull this promise to you. Thank you for bringing this to our attention, we will investigate it asap. We would love to understand what exactly happened to your table on that evening, could you please give us a phone number or an email we could reach out to you on ? Thank you The George Team

    We were very happy with the food, but unfortunately our table was not great for having a meal together - being in the booths in the Centre. I had stated we were coming to celebrate my parents wedding anniversary so being sat where we were made us feel very disconnected from one another.

    Service poor. Despite advising waitstaff we were going to a show and needed tobe out within 90 minutes, we waited over 30 minutes for our drinks to arrive. Too many people ordering drinks at the bar that none were coming to the people at the tables. Food arrived in parts before the drinks even came to us. Waitress didn't know what was in some of the cocktails or meals. Remainder of the food came out of order for eating it together. Altogether it was disappointing, food was nice but as it came out in unusual timings it didn't really flow as a whole meal. It was happy hour the waitress advised so that's why our drinks took over half an hour to get to us!!!

    The George on CollinsResponded on May 22, 2022Thank you Carolyn for your review and in person feedback. We're sorry to hear about your frustrating experience and really appreciate you bringing this issue to our attention. We'll strive to do better moving forward. The George Team

    The George on CollinsResponded on May 11, 2022Dear Donna, We indeed accommodate to all dietaries in our banquet options. Our A La Carte menu options accommodate to various dietaries, which is specified on our menu (Vegan, GF, DF, etc.). We cannot change our A La Carte menu items as it would alter the flavors of the food considerably and would not provide you with the quality that we promise. We hope you and your friend still enjoyed the experience after accommodating to your wishes. The George Team
