I love this restaurant for its tasting menu and for its very accommodating staff. Since the demise of Perigee I have been on the lookout for a good tasting menu. There are too few here, and some of the better ones jack up the volume of the music so high that a meal there is not enjoyable. I like L'Ouvrier... More

It was my first time at George Restaurant. I attended the Opus One Event so my review is based on a fixed menu with a wine pairing for each course. Before dinner we were in a main reception room and had hors d'oeuvres paired with Laurent-Perrier Cuvee Rose prior to the event. Veal Foie Gras Burgers (Excellent), Cauliflower Samosa (Very... More

This was one of the best experiences and meals I have ever had at any restaurant. Both my wife and I are out very frequently for dinner at top restaurants due to the nature of our work, and I was surprised that neither of us had ever been to George which made it a perfect surprise venue for her birthday....

I was taken here on a business lunch and had no idea what was in store, but was pleasantly surprised. We did not do the tasting menu, but everyone got a first plate and a third plate, as well as a dessert. I had the lobster salad as my first plate and I am serious when I say that it... More

Went for my SOs milestone Bday celebration, went on a Tues night. Made reservations via opentable, which were confirmed the day before by call from the resto. Told them special occasion at that time. Upon arrival, we were quickly seated, nice decor and setting, if in a somewhat sketchy area. While the food and wine were simply outstanding, the one... More

We had our wedding in the private room at George and the food was phenomenal. The service was incredible, very high end without being stuffy, the space is gorgeous, the organizers are fantastic, but my goodness the food. We have eaten there 3 times in total now and I can guarantee that there will be a yearly anniversary dinner at... More

There are great restaurants... then you have the exceptional ones... then you have George in a category of their own! From the thin crust and hot breads to wonderful deserts... we indulged all evening in the chef and his kitchen fantastic food journey. I wanted the 7 course tasting menu with the wine pairing but we were a party of... More

Had an amazing anniversary dinner at George last weekend. Recommended by friends as well as TripAdvisor, and was not disappointed. Had the 5 course tasting menu + wine pairings, which was the right amount of food to not feel stuffed. Each dish was spectacular, the only complaint was that it seemed a bit protein-heavy (fish, meat, meat, cheese, desert). A... More

Following a last minute reservation we arrived to a warm welcome at The George. The staff throughout the meal were professional and very attentive. I was particularly impressed with the Sommelier who upon realising I was the only person drinking wine said he was happy for me to choose any bottle and only pay for what I drank rather than... More
