The Georgian is an exceptionally beautiful restaurant; however, having dined there at least four times in the last several years, I have been somewhat disappointed in the quality and presentation of the food. The beauty of the restaurant can't quite overcome the less than stellar food. I returned primarily because of the beauty of the restaurant. I said I would recommend the restaurant, but that is strictly based on the ambience alone.

The Georgian Room is a very special place - the atmosphere, the food, and the staff. The setting is certainly unique - I don't know of any other in the Seattle area that can match it. As an architecture and interior design buff, The Olympic alone would be enough to bring us back again and again. But the food and the atmosphere fostered by the excellent staff round out a memorable experience. I spent an hour or more today trying to find a local source of the 2009 Domaine Schoenheitz Pinot Gris my husband had with his five course meal. He savoured it with his eyes closed. Unfortunately, there is none in Australia - at least none I found so far. Hope it or something like it is there to add to our next dinner at The Georgian in October.

We go to the Georgian for special occasions, and they never let us down. We always appreciate the service. The waiters are always professional, and knowledgeable about the food and wines. They are gracious and friendly without being intrusive. On our special night I had the salmon. You can get salmon everywhere in Seattle, but this was definitely a cut above. The sauce was amazing. Also, I ordered a mojito. I love mojitos, and order them often, so I know a good one from a great one. This was one of the greats. When I told our waiter this, he told me that the bartender there is award-winning. No surprise! I would definitely recommend it for anyone who wants a lovely, special, romantic evening.

The food was terrific! The room, of course, is beautiful. I thought the service was a bit unattentive. We we warned that if we ordered lunch, it would take a little longer -- which it did -- but it didn't matter because we were there for a leisurely and relaxing time (which it was). However, I thought the staff was a little slow to visit our table, follow up, etc. They were very very nice and professional.

The Georgian is what it should be: an elegant dining room in an upscale hotel. Indeed, the service in the Georgian Room exceeds the service found in the remainder of the Fairmont, which I found to be quite below par. But our dinner was very special; it was worth the trip if only to taste the exquisite Olympic Roof Honey, but Sean made the entire evening memorable.

This is our favorite restaurant in downtown Seattle. It is simply outstanding. What is really notable is the chef's special menus for dietary needs: vegan, macrobiotic, diabetic, heart healthy, and gluten free. The only disappointment I find when I dine here is that they serve Starbucks coffee. Drip coffee Starbucks is just nasty stuff. The Puget Sound has so many excellent coffee roasteries that I find fine dining establishments treat their coffee like their wines: they are proud to discuss the coffee's origins, place of roasting, and usually, that it's fair trade. No so with Starbucks. It's just plain boring and bitter.

The Georgian is by far and away our favorite restaurant to celebrate the holidays in Seattle. The dining room is gorgeous, and the food - crab bisque, butter poached lobster with truffled gnocchi, souffles - is so decadent. The service is unmatched anywhere else in Seattle, and it's so nice to see dinner guests dressed up for a change. We also appreciate so many "by the glass" and half bottle wine options to match with our courses.

One had a lunch which was very good and one had the holiday tea which was very over rated and expensive. Two of the sandwich items were very good, two were bland. The sweets were so sweet they were not enjoyable at all. The best thing were the scones.

Very good soup was brought out on a napkin on a plate and therefore wobbled and had already spilled some of the contents before it reached me. Not an auspicious start. Especially when the waiter told me to "be careful". Very difficult to eat without holding the bowl which was too hot to hold. Then second (hot)course was brought out before I was half finished with the soup. Also, despite the less than half full room, they seated me in the corner with the servers' station, the table clearing station and the open door to a room with a noisy party, members of which came out in pairs for "private" conversations right by me.

The hotel is so beautiful at Christmas and the Georgian room never disappoints as a place that you can dine at a leisurely pace. Perfect for reunions with friends. And the food was great. My friend had Scallops- divine and my husband had the clam strips. They were beautifully presented and lightly fried to perfection. There was even a mini caesar salad at the side of the plate.

The Georgian is a great restaurant with wonderful food combined with creative presentation. However, it is not wheel chair accessible. To get into our romantic dining experience, we were routed through a back hall into the kitchen to the dining room. At the end of the evening, the wheelchair wheels had to be scrubbed to remove the grease picked up from the floor. This will keep us from returning.

 (San Francisco)·Dined on December 3, 2011

The Georgian Room remains an elegant and romantic dining experience. The room and ambience are magnificent and the service is superb. But the the food, although very good--but not great--has not seemed to evolve with the times. While jackets are no longer required here, the food remains in a bit of a time warp and lacks the creativity one would expect. That said, our prawn cocktail served on ice was excellent, as was the surf and turf entree--nice to get a lobster in Seattle. The venison loin was very satisfying--as one would expect. We passed on souffle and shared a cheesecake dessert that was nice but not exceptional. Something is missing here that makes the Georgian Room less than it should be.

I had the house salad and scallops for dinner. Both were outstanding. Beautiful restaurant. Love the way the tables are laid out - lots of room between tables and most have a "loveseat" bench on one side so you can decide whether to sit side by side or across from each other. The night we were there, a violin/bass duet was playing. Nice ambiance. Close to 5th Avenue Theatre so great stop before the show. Festive decorations were an added bonus for the holiday season. Will definitely be back.

Food was good but not great. I was expecting Foodie level and was frankly dissapointed. I had the beet salad which was pretty but flavorless and the scallops were slightly undercooked. I would reccomend the prawn appetizer as it was served on a block of ice which was very fun and it prawns were very tender without be rubbery. The dessert was nothing special. At these highend restaurants you expect dessert to be a bit of a show stopper but the merange cookies in my dessert looked store bought and were hard as a rock.

I felt it was a bit pricey for regular dining. Worthy of note; they had an alternate menu for vegans, diabetics, and people with gluten problems.
