    Service was not friendly - hostesses or our waitress. We ordered 3 appetizers and every single one of them had no seasoning. The ahi tuna was nothing like how the menu described it to be and tasted terrible - gave both of us a stomach ache after trying a bite of it. Waitress was no where to be found during most of our time there. The menu needs to be updated on what you actually serve on each dish or at least have your waitstaff inform customers what they are ordering will not come as described on the menu.

    Food and service were great. Ambiance was not good. Plain white walls with modern art paintings. Room was very cold, but staff turned off overhead fans, which made it better. Expensive with small portions. Very disappointed.

    This was not a pleasant dining experience. The food was not well prepared and the entrees did not match the description. Only one of he four entrees ordered was moderately appealing. I would not recommend this restaurant to anyone. Even my daughter's grilled cheese was bad.

    We had high expectations for the George & sadly the experience did not meet what was expected. We dined inside because booth seating is more comfortable than iron bistro chairs for me. There were no candles in the votive container nor salt & pepper on the table. Maybe Covid dictated protocol? No bread was offered with our appetizer- Gator bites which were delicious! My breaded seafood entree had cod which met my standard but the crab cake & shrimp were disappointing. My husband’s penne with Cajun chicken was to his liking but he didn’t gush about it. The service was very pleasant & we never felt rushed. All in all from the reputation this establishment did have, they have some hurdles to recover from Covid mode. Will possibly give one more try as I didn’t try their Brussels which have been raved about.

    The cheese plate was great but wasn't a fan of the crab dip or the salad - only 4 shrimp and a bit to much dressing for my liking. Could of been an amazing dinner if pulled together better.

    Two out of three dishes had to be sent back. The Black Bass had a sauce on it that ruined the whole dish and tasted awful and the Sea Scallops were fishy smelling and overcooked. Service sucked. I had to track down a bus boy for water and three stale rolls as our waitress was always disappearing.

    Pet friendly when such seating is available, and it was. The staff was very accommodating with our dog ...who was pretty relaxed, so that helped. The rack of lamb ordered was cooked to perfection, and it's relative easy to not cook it well. The sides were even great. The roasted Brussel sprouts were a treat in themselves, as was the risotto. The wait staff was attentive and professional without being one bit overly intrusive. The menu was quite varied and inventive. I'm definitely looking forward to going again when I'm in town.
