I think that it all boils down to the type of person you are. I'm not really into places like this. It is a rather noisy place for late night dinner. Service was alright. I've had better times out before!

We went to this restaurant for my birthday last year and as we had just gotten back from an overseas trip there was lots to share and catch up. At first the noise level was okay until the restaurant started to fill up and eventually it got so bad that we were virtually shouting at each other over the din.... More

Consistently good and interesting food - many guests staying at my guest house comment on how enjoyable and buzzing the restaurant is. More for a younger or trendy eating out experience!

Georges seriously do one a huge favor by feeding them, at least that's how you are made to feel. The food was very, very average the service was appalling. We waited over and hour for our food and it was warmish when it arrived. I think it's pretentious and overpriced and the arrogant attitude was just the cherry on the... More

The menu never changes, which is good because the food is great. George's does what it does very well and always leaves one satisfied. It can be very busy/crowded though, so go to enjoy the vibe.

To start, it was great Originally, this was not our first pick as my girlfriend had already been to George's and we wanted to try something completely new. However, the completely new place, down the road, had horrible service, and I wasnt too impressed by the food menu either. The wine list was extensive and affordable, but altogether unsatisfactory. We... More

Georges on 4th nestled in the heart of Parkhurst delivers good food, the fillet medallions, although slightly pricy are very well worth it as it is full of flavour and the portioning is satisfactory. In general Georgoes can be slightly over priced and occassionally the service can be slow but if you are no rush and are happy to enjoy... More

Come here more for the buzz and flavor of the neighborhood rather than the food. Standard fair and ok service.

probably the best food on the street, but not 5 star so maybe a little pricey for what you get
