    Celebrated my for 30th birthday. At this establishment from the time I walked in the service was great. The food was up to standard, and our waitress was very respectful and patient with us and getting everybody’s orders. Everyone enjoyed their food as well as each other’s company. I would definitely recommend and go back. The ambience was beautiful and perfect for the night. Thank you again for having us

    We celebrated a birthday and it was such an amazing experience! The staff was incredible and on top of it throughout our entire meal. The restaurant, the bar, the lobby bar it was all such an adventure and I really appreciated they had a lift to get to the lower floors. Great service & great food!

    I celebrated my birthday with lunch at The George, drawn in by its Great Gatsby-like ambiance. While the setting was charming and the service adequate, I found the overall experience disappointing. The food fell short of expectations, both in quality and value for money. Regrettably, I don't plan on returning. I ordered the avocado toast, based on the enticing picture on the website, and was met with a stark contrast. What arrived was a simple toast topped with an avocado spread that lacked freshness and on top was another half of a whole avocado, partially sliced, leaving me puzzled about how to consume it. Accompanied by a sparse serving of arugula and cherry tomatoes that look sad, the dish failed to impress visually or in taste. My daughter's choice of smoky french fries and Lavender soda fared no better. Adding to the disappointment, our waiter carelessly poured water into her clear soda without acknowledging the mistake, when I pointed it out, indicating a lack of attention to detail. All in all, this underwhelming experience came with a hefty price tag of $75. Unless you're prepared to pay extra for the ambiance alone, I will skip The George.

    The atmosphere was lovely as expected. However, the hostess was really rude to me, which was a bad start to my friend’s birthday brunch. The servers were nice enough, and the food was only okay. Appetizers were the best of all 3 courses. I would go back try the high tea but wouldn’t recommend going back for brunch.

    Second time I can’t believe it we had a good food but we got completely forgotten It’s so odd. We went for brunch and ordered right away. We never got our beverages. The scone cart came around which was very good and there was actually an explanation this time. After that we finally did get our beverages. I had to ask twice for ice water. Finally our starter came. Hubs ordered soup had to track someone down to bring a spoon. By this time everyone around us had already got their main. No sign to our wait person. Eventually our plates were cleared and another 30 min for our main. It never came. I finally had to stop a staff member just walking through. She assured us she would check. Wait person still never came. We finally did get our main. Everyone near us had got the check or dessert. Wait person still never came over. Other staff member did brought things like a side plate I wanted and ketchup. Had to ask for refill of juice and water. I think our food was given the to the table behind l. Not thrilled it took so long. Food was very good though. It’s a little pathetic though 2 of my potatoes we actually burned black. Someone served it on a plate and someone brought the plate out still!! We never even were offered to order dessert. The person who finally helped did comp us one entree and I do appreciate that. The bad part this is exactly what happened in October !! I am so mad we went back I even told our wait person about it becuase I thought it was odd last time maybe we ordered wrong ?!? It’s just a lovely place we had a great staycation but the service both there and shuckers was horrid.

    The posted photos, confirmed by the menu prices, portray a grandeur dining room. That was not my in-person impression. The food was good, not great. Our three different entrees were scallops, ravioli, and carbonara pasta. Certainly, the above evaluations are all subjective reviews of mine. Although I listed on our reservation the reason for the dinner was a "birthday celebration," there was no acknowledgement by any of the restaurant staff — an objective evaluation. This was a great disappointment to me.

    Chicken sandwich was dry, the hamburger was not prepared correctly and after being returned for modifications was still not done correctly and the overall taste was not as good as it has been in the past. Service was spotty, waited at the door for some time before anyone appeared to seat us. Overall, disappointing.

    By far the best dining experience in Seattle. Me and my girl worked during Valentine’s Day so we decided to schedule a dinner for the weekend after and it was an amazing dinner. The french onion soup was rich in flavor and the carbonara has me wanting to schedule another dinner real soon. My girl friend enjoyed the wine selection as well. The restaurant itself was beautiful!

    The restaurant is conveniently inside the hotel and it is very elegantly decorated. The lighting is amazing, the chandeliers are very chic and the service staff was attentive. The food on the other hand is a different story. The sourdough we ordered to share came unsliced and we weren’t given a knife to slice it. The chicken was so sugary and undercooked that I couldn’t eat it at all. While I understand that honey-glazing is a thing in culinary art, that chicken was extremely sweet.

    We had reservations for 2 on a Saturday evening. Overall everything was really good, but I can’t say anything was truly outstanding. Dinner (scallops and pork chops) were both really good, service was great after a bit of a slow start as was the dessert. The ambiance was ok but given the overall volume of noise it wasn’t really what we expected. I’d would recommend it, but not for a romantic dinner, but maybe with friends or couples.

    From the entrance to exit, the place is outstanding. The doorway and the ambience light are very welcoming. Servers were great. You can tell the place was upscale. Appetizers were brought out fast and fresh. Bread and Onion soup were delicious. The had good selection of wines by glass and decent selection for beer on draft. We tried the butternut squash ravioli and Carbonara, both amazing and delicious, definitely a place to visit when in town.

    Beautiful room and ambiance. Room is cold and it is difficult for women with a dress. Unfortunately, they do not have gluten free bread (quite available now days at very good restaurants). There are GF options but kitchen cannot offer modifications of the dishes for dietary restrictions unfortunately. Excellent food.

    We tried to call as per the late policy as were running a few minutes late but no one picked up. We arrived 2-3 minutes late and were made to wait 20 minutes for a table as they had given it away. That being said the host and our waiter were both very kind, and it seemed like the mishap was out of their control. The food was average, the roast chicken was quite good but the black cod had very little flavor.

    The set menu for Valentine's Day was really good. The only thing we didn't really care for was the nori sourdough. The flavors and presentation of everything else were excellent. The price was a bit high for the amount of food, but they made up for it with the gifts and photos provided. One thing to note is that for this set menu, they added a 20% service fee to the bill, so we declined to tip extra ($70 is a very high tip, in my opinion).
