The food here was incredible. This will be our restaurant to go to before all our PPAC shows. We have tried many restaurants around the the theater and this is by far the best!!!

Perfect Pre-Show dinner spot, Sandi was so friendly and welcoming- great drinks and food, nice quiet spot to grab dinner then check out Speakeasy downstairs! We walked to PPAC from Restaurant- recommend this downtown spot for any night of the week!

The best pasta fazool I have ever had. The staff are exceptionally friendly. The manager and the owner stop by the tables. Very comfortable atmosphere and the food is amazing.

I would like to amend my previous review! There is a first time for everything and there are bound to be kinks that come with that! We love to see drag artists being supported at new venues! I will always be back to support my friends that are performing! Looking forward to the next one!

Wow! I have no words for this place. You walk in to see the beautiful architecture and the ambience is spectacular. You can either sit in the dining room which is beautiful or the lounge area. I sat in the lounge. There is a gorgeous wooden bar, the most comfortable chairs, and live piano and bass that set the mood. The cocktail menu is awesome and the waitress made good suggestions. First came the appetizer. The Buffalo cauliflower was perfectly roasted, seasoned to perfection, and the sauce it came with made my mouth water. The mozzarella cakes were breaded like heaven and fried to make the cheese a perfect consistency. Entree… Short rib. The short rib is melt in your mouth delicious. Just when we thought our meal was finished because of how full we were, I heard that they make all desserts in house so I had to hear the options. Banana Cream pie. Wow. Insane. No words. One of the best things I have eaten ever. 10/10

We had a wonderful dinner, the lobster crab ravioli was rich and delicious, as was the surf and turf. Desserts were amazing. We had the banana pie and chocolate mousse cake.

It was a nice atmosphere to enjoy music and dinner. From the speakeasy downstairs, piano bar, and relaxing dining area the evening passed by too quickly. The food was amazing and exciting to learn it was the one year anniversary of the restaurant.

This restaurant has complimentary valet, which worked out because my husband and I were a few minutes late. We only waited a few minutes to be seated. The server was great, sadly I do not remember his name. Very attentive and fast. The food was phenomenal! My husband got a 16 oz ribeye and I got the half roasted chicken. Cooked to perfection and all of the seasoning was on point. Everything was amazing. We had a great 2 year wedding anniversary. Can't wait to go back!

Great menu, hard to decide! Decided to split an appetizer of spicy sausage with black bean purée and a fabulous tomato sauce-strong recommendation for this and the chef made the sausage. Then had lobster and crab ravioli - yum! Husband had lobster and shrimp Fra Di Avio. Unbelievable! The pasta was fresh with a killer sauce plus a very large lobster tail. Great bar too!

Food was great(ortions as well) service was not. Appetizer and plates not cleared by the time we received entree. The kitchen was slow. Noisy clientele, young children, and questionable patrons blue jeans and baseball caps. Hostess disinfected table behind us between patrons -that had industrial strength smell and ruined meal for us.
Received a glass of wine which took twenty minutes, glass had lipstick on it.

The ambiance at the George is excellent! We sat in the bar listening to some amazing jazz. We waited a long time to be served and the food and wine menu were disappointing. I think with some attention to the wine list and a critical eye on the food, this would be a five star review. Staff was extremely friendly. We will return.

Everyone was very friendly and the food was very good. The house cocktails are inspired and tasty.

Our only criticism would be that the cheese and cured meat board was uninspired ... only 2 kinds of cheese and three meats, with a cup of jam, pistachios, and olives. That's it. Skip it and get the shrimp cocktail which was fantastic.

When I left my credit card at the table when we left, the server and hostess tracked me down and got them back to me. We will be going back soon.

The brunch was really bad. I got the breakfast burrito which barely had anything in it and nothing resembling breakfast (no eggs), with a stale wrap. My fiancée got the steak and eggs. She ordered the steak med rare. Steak arrived well done. Sent it back and got an extra rare steak, barely cooked. Also they do not season their steaks at all, not even salt! Terrible food. Will not go back.

My husband and I went to The George for the first time last night and it was great. We were there celebrating our 20th Wedding Anniversary. Our host was very nice and put us at a beautiful large table in the corner, it was perfect. Our server, Dan, was helpful, attentive, and answered all of my questions.
We both ordered daily specials and they were fantastic. We also ordered calamari for an appetizer, not everyone cooks it properly, but they did a great job.
We’ll definitely be back; I’d love to take our daughter there.

The waiter never offered the specials to our table, but did to other tables. They had no ice tea and when I asked what other non alcoholic drinks they had besides water, he offered non alcoholic beer. Not much selection for someone who doesn’t drink. The noise level was vey loud and it was hard to talk

The George Bar Side had a nice atmosphere. The bar tender made an excellent very dry Tanqueray straight up martini. Our server was very nice. My husband enjoyed heis pizza but my seared sea scallops were overwhelmed hash of fingerling potatoes, scallions, grape tomatoes and maybe caramelized onions. The has was good just a little too heavy for the scallops. We both enjoyed the Buffalo cauliflower. At this time I would recommend a friend cocktails and appetizers.
