    Bartenders were excellent, waiter was excellent, food was superb. Ambiance was distracting. It was loud, tables close and out in the open. Everyone was very friendly and attentive. I would recommend The George as a Sheri or restaurant.

    We had a great night at The George. The ambiance was just what we were looking for- kind of fun, upbeat, with music in the background. The food was fabulous. The staff was very friendly and gracious. The owner stopped by to check on us, and told us how the restaurant came to be during the pandemic. We're already planning a return trip, and next time we'll go for a drink at the speakeasy.

    We went here as a family for Mother's Day and had a wonderful experience! The food was exceptionally good from start to finish. Service was great and it was nice to see the "old school" Providence values of the owner in the restaurant, visiting tables and making sure his diners were happy. Complimentary valet parking is available, FYI. We have already booked another reservation to take friends!

    Wow. What a disappointment. My friends and I were very much looking forward to this place. We expected there to be piano, but there seemed to have been a band instead the night we went (Saturday). Not a big deal, but a bit disappointing. Once we arrived for our 8:15 reservation, we were told by the host that the restaurant was backed up and we needed to wait. Not a big deal. Getting there early (around 8), we expected to wait a bit. 8:15 comes. Then 8:30. Still no word. 8:45 comes, the host gives me a “1 minute” sign and apologizes for the delay. It’s really no big deal, but once we sat down about 5 minutes later, there was no offer of a free drink or small appetizer. Once again, it’s not a big deal, but an apology would have at least been nice. We ordered our meals from the uninspiring menu which definitely needs to be updated. I ordered the “jumbo” sea scallops, while my friends ordered the bolognese and the angus steak. What a disappointment! The bolognese was okay, but pretty boring. My friend’s steak was smothered in blue cheese and was tough and gristly. My scallops were hardly “jumbo,” and the portion was ridiculously small. A few potatoes, roughly a tablespoon of spinach, and, if I remember correctly, a half a dozen scallops topped with a sauce that was a bit too sweet and didn’t really work with the scallops. I ate it. Don’t get me wrong, the food wasn’t terrible, just really disappointing. I was still hungry by the time I finished my food. Offered dessert, we were overall unimpressed and thus opted against ordering dessert. We didn’t get to talk very much during dinner because the restaurant was so loud. I’d be willing to try this place again. Just please, slightly bigger portions and a better menu please! Our server (Michael?) was excellent. He recommended a wine to me and it was great.

    We planned a special dinner here before going to Trinity for a show. The food was really amazing, and the seating arrangement gave me a comfortable feel having some space around our table. However, my daughter and I were celebrating our birthdays and I did note this in my reservation. I felt awkward when they brought out a candled dessert to the table next to us, and they overlooked our table celebrating two birthdays. A big miss in my book. However, everything else was superb.

    The George is cute and the food is good. However, there were a couple of issues. Waitresses don't know how to use the OpenTable system and cancelled my reservation. I spoke with the manager the next day and he told me to make another reservation so I would get my points. After ordering our food and waiting for at least 20 minutes, during which people that came in after us got their food, I asked the bartender what was up. She said she forgot to hit "send" to put in the order. My husband got a 2nd orange juice for which I believe we weren't charged but she could have removed it entirely from the bill.

    I love the piano bar and ambiance at The George. It’s been a while since my last visit and I was surprised to see wines from other countries in the wine list. It used to be only american wines. The menu seemed pretty badiv to me with reasonable prices. I had a good time but I don’t think I’ll be back soon,

    The background: we were a group of six (three couples) getting together for a nice evening out. The good: - Our server was great! Very attentive & a great sense of humor. He knew the menu, had good recommendations, and was generally what we would want from a server. - The drinks were very good! - The ambiance itself was nice, though the tables were just a bit too close together, with 2 of our chairs incredibly wobbly. When we pointed this out & asked if we could grab 2 chairs from from the (much nicer & more private) empty 6-top table in the corner that remained empty for the duration of our time there (versus the 3 uneven 2-tops pushed together for us in the middle of the restaurant), we were told no, as those chairs went with that table. - Free valet parking, though signage indicating this was lacking, so half our group found this out after paying $25 to park next door. - The short ribs were a hit for 2 people. The not so good: - Most importantly, and the reason you go to a restaurant, the food (minus the short ribs). It wasn’t bad at all. It was just…average. “Enh…” was the group sentiment. - Appetizers: all three who had French onion soup said it was very plain & in need of some flavor. The meat & cheese board was basic grocery store cheeses & deli meats - nothing special at all, especially at the price point. The only fail was the Buffalo cauliflower. It was awful. - Dinner: Almost everything was cooked correctly. It just lacked flavor, or any basic seasoning on the main dishes. My filet had absolutely no seasoning, not even salt & pepper. Same for the pork chop, chicken, and scallops that others had. The mashed potatoes were an odd texture and color & lacked flavor. The mixed veggies were soggy & unseasoned. The only exception to this lack of flavor or seasoning was the roasted fingerling potatoes, which both people who had them indicated were so salted they tasted as if from the ocean! Overall, the meal was way more expensive than it was worth.

    Fantastic meal as usual! Our waiter was fantastic but he seemed to be the only one on the floor so wait times were a little longer, not his fault. But overall this place is one of my top spots in PVD.

    Wonderful Easter dinner with my family. Bacon wrapped scallops and stuffed mushrooms were delicious. Prime Rib was cooked perfectly, pasta was al dente, salad was yummy and had just the right amount of dressing! Salmon was also cooked perfectly and chicken francais was amazing! The desserts, créme brûlée and strawberry tres leches were devoured by the table.
