    Spillover noise from wedding reception made the noise level louder than expected. Service was great. Food was good except for the risotto entree which was mediocre at best. Room decor was wonderful.

    The techno music at brunch was so loud we couldn't have a conversation. Whoever thought that was a good idea was very wrong. The food was good, service excellent and the decor was lovely but the club music made it a one star for me. Won't be back.

    There were 4 of us dining here. The scallops, peach/cucumber appetizer and halibut dishes delicious and the artisan bread was fabulous! The risotto was okay - it was missing something. The service by Cameron was outstanding. Desserts were yummy - chocolate one and peach/cream/croissant!! Definitely will return!

    A Major transformation. Very busy. Energetic atmosphere. Good service. Food was delicious. Kitchen was very slow and it took too long to get our meals. Restaurant made that right. I would go back.

    We shared 3 plates, enjoyed Manhattan's, and closed with a wonderful Bordeaux. I will say that service was slow and inaccurate, but the som made up for everything and for everything and the food was absolutely amazing. The duck and the salmon are masterfully done!

    8pm reservation. The House was so loud that my guest and I could barely hear each other. Try NOT to sit in a corner area. The server was attentive. The meals were ok. My halibut arrived, and it was cool (not warm), like it had been sitting for a while. I doubt if we will return. Disappointing.

    What a nice place! Atmosphere is super nice and the food is even better. Very much enjoyed our cocktails and the wine suggestion from our waiter- Keegan- was spot on. For apps we had the salmon and octopus- both excellent. For meals we had the steak frites and scallops, amazing all around. Our service was also top notch.

    The space is amazing. Like Gatsby brought to life. The staff was excellent…attentive and polished. The food was good but did not particularly wow me. To be fair we ate only vegetarian dishes but they could have a bit more balanced and refined. Overall a great experience though.

    The food was excellent and the service was even better. Keegan was my server and he was wonderful. The cucumber and peach salad was different and good. The halibut was fresh and seasoned and cooked perfectly. I couldn’t resist the fries with aioli. I left full and satisfied. It was a superb dining experience.

    We anticipated a very special night out on our visit from San Francisco, instead we were especially disappointed with the menu choices. It was limited and the visual was weak. The flavors were downright bland and overpriced. The room is lovely but be prepared to pay a $4.00 charge to shake a straight up cocktail. Dining in San Francisco isn't cheap, but the charge for shaking some Tito's is only $3.00. By the way, the bar apps look more enticing.

    My daughter and I dined here before heading over to a show at The Paramount. Our server was very nice and helped me chose something on the menu that could be done gluten free. My daughter and I both had the halibut and shared a side of the sautéed spinach and mushrooms. Both were delicious. BTW I love the new decor. It is more modern while still being classic and very elegant.

    Such a shame that this latest renovation of what was a classic Seattle Institution turned out like this. The room is brash and noisy. For some reason felt the ambiance would be improved a DJ playing bass thumping music! Validated parking is no more and on the day we went the valet lot was full except for overnight guests. To be fare the food at brunch was delicious and the service good. Drinks are overpriced. Not bad but not special or unique like it used to be.

    We were thoroughly enjoying brunch in the beautifully remodeled dining room when suddenly quite loud and what we felt was extremely inappropriate for the setting, club music started playing. We brought a guest from out of town to what we felt we make a good impression only to be embarrassed as the magic of this space was ruined. If this is the new norm at The George we won’t be back.

    I've been to many fine dining restaurants all over Seattle and Bellevue area and was not impressed. I came here because some one wrote a article that this was one of 5 must try restaurants in Seattle. The restaurant was definitely charming inside but the food was not a match. I had the steak frites with wagyu steak and wife had bucatini nero. First off my waygu steak had way to much connective tissue to cut thru. And the fries tasted like they were stale air fry cooked. Dry and crumbly inside. My wife's food had no flavor and didn't even finish any of the pasta. Other reviews here say the food is mediocre but leave a 4 star review. Not sure why so high a rating. But there right on mediocre. Who ever wrote the article, I'm definitely not trying any of there other recommendations. They should be fired. Now I know why it was so empty on a Friday night.

    Beautiful decor in a gorgeous, historic hotel. Food was accurately priced. Loved the eggs Benedict and omelette; pancakes were pretty dull with no option for berry pancakes, multigrain, or special toppings that we could find. The noise level was very high. This was primarily due to a large group that was talking loudly next to the wall, which then reverberated throughout. They meant no harm and it is their prerogative, but it took over the restaurant. Perhaps large groups could be seated in the lobby, or even in one of the side rooms up the stairs in the future? However, I noticed that The George has no sound dampening panels anywhere. It is a beautiful restaurant with high ceilings, but be prepared for conversations to carry very loudly.
