    We visited The George after the Van Gogh exhibit at the Convention Center on Sunday afternoon. We had a reservation, but since no one was there, we decided to keep Lily company at the bar, and she was awesome. We had a couple of cocktails each, shared the Thai Chili Calamari, which was excellent, and then a Cesar salad, and the Short Rib sandwich. Everything was great, Lili was delightful. We will go back again for sure!

    The food was outstanding especially the banana cream pie for dessert. Only issue was that the noise level was extremely high and we had a hard time hearing each other. Would go back during the week.

    A little bit disappointed by the lobster roll. While tasty, it was on the comment wrong bread. When you read lobster roll there's an expectation, and a bready sub roll isn't it. Plus the lobster was a bit tough. It was extra busy so I understand how that should happen. The roll was the only thing that brought this down a star. Too much bread compared to amount of lobster. Fries were delicious. My friend lioved his turkey club

    Atmosphere is fantastic, there was live music for Sunday brunch; and service at the bar with Jimmy was great. Unfortunately there were lots of details missed. The bar was very dirty when we sat and overdue for a wipe down, please don't throw my bev nap down on that and ask what I'm having (not Jimmy). The bar dishwasher is at the end of the bar closest to the entrance and around the corner from the dining room, which resulted in a backlog of dirty glasses dropped on the bar by staff, waiting to make it into the dishwasher. So many that it took up about 3 seats at the bar, and in addition left an unsightly pile of dirty glasses right next to us. Food took an exceptionally long time, over an hour for both the starter and then another hour for entree. We were there to settle in with some cocktails, so not the end of the world. The food was just fine, it seems mostly food service stuff, such as a pre-made burger and frozen fries. For such an upscale environment we expected more. Would go back for cocktails in the evening, but does not win my vote for brunch.

    As always, good food in an elegant setting. Service is professional. The menu is safe, but well executed. The dining room is worth of a special occasion. Haven’t tried the bar, but they have non alcoholic cocktails which is welcome for non drinkers.

    Going into the evening, I was generally excited to try this new spot on Washington - appropriately named “George”. Well there should be a name change as to not disrespect one of our greatest generals and Presidents. It took way too long to be served - waited 25 minutes for my second cocktail to arrive. Took way too long before food order was taken - another 30 minutes after that for the food to arrive. Above all else, the drinks and food were subpar. I ordered a “Angus Steak” medium rare and it came well done and looked like at “breakfast steak at Denny’s. Totally underwhelming experience, name should be Benedict Arnold.

    Dinner before PPAC with family. The food and drinks were delicious but what made a better experience was the server. Eddy was amazing and very knowledgeable about the menu. Price is on the higher end but you have to remember you are in Providence and the cost of everything is increasing. Everything was worth it and we left full and happy.

    Great place to dine. Elegant dining room with comfy seats. The menu was varied and the food was great! We started with the Thai Chili Calamari and it did not disappoint. Not too sweet with just the right amount of sauce. We also tried the Garlic Bread. It was crusty and tasty with the marinara. For meals, we had the short ribs and the pork chop. Both were excellent. We will be back.

    Made a reservation at 745pm on a Friday because we wanted a Piano Lounge setting. Arrived and there was no host to greet us. Literally all of the waiters (all four of them) walked past us, some twice, without acknowledging us. I had to flag one down but she was a busser until the the manager/owner or some guy turned around five feet from us asking if we were taken care of. Another guy finally showed up after us standing there awkwardly for 7-10 mins and sat us down. Service was definitely slow as only three waiters were seen running around. Took them awhile to get to us and every trip would take 10-15 mins, which is understandable but not excusable. There was no piano even tho it was supposed to be after 730pm. The food was average if anything. My friends pizza was dry. No sauce. Overcooked chicken. Dry dough. My drink tasted like it was made with bottom shelf vodka that comes in a plastic container. It took us about 20 mins to leave since the waiter kept forgetting to close us out. This place did not deliver as it was advertised to do. The inside was great in terms of decor and such minus the lack of piano but the service and food/drink was subpar.
