“Great place to meet with friends”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 6, 2013

Operates out of an old house, the different dining rooms occupy the rooms. large dining room in a general area. Well kept, staff is friendly and helpful. The menu is limited but the chef/owner/administrator is on hand to make sure everything is perfect, and it is.

Great place to have a chat with friends and a satisfying meal.
They will make you feel like you are a visiting relative.

“The best day of pampering I've ever had!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 19, 2013 via mobile

Fantastic spa services and lovely location followed by a truly delicious lunch - perfectly cooked and seasoned! I would definitely recommend The Georgian House to anyone looking for a relaxing, refreshing, indulgent day. The staff was very accommodating and friendly, especially Julie the esthetician! Would love to go back any time!

“Upscale restaurant in a small town”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 2, 2012

Tastes good. Interesting selections - no hamburger steak here. I like the location. The people are welcoming but do not hover.

“Fine dining gem in a small town outside of Ottawa”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 22, 2012

We have dined at the Georgian House at least 6 times over the past two years. It is worth going back to.

The restaurant is in a gracious old house, and the dining areas are nicely decorated with plenty of windows overlooking the garden area. At certain times of year the sunset can be enjoyed over the mill pond.

The wait staff are friendly and helpful and never hover over the table. The owner, chef Heinz, is often present to ensure guests are having a memorable dining experience.

There is an extensive menu with a European flair, but we have always ordered one of the 3 dinner specials. The special includes soup of the day, choice of salad (and they prepare a great salad) or another appetizer (sometimes escargot, sometimes seafood coquille), and a main dish of, for example, pork, fish, or chicken, nicely prepared with memorable sauces. Choice of baked or stuffed potato, or rice; a generous serving of tasty mixed veggies on the side. These specials run just under $30. Fresh baked rolls are also provided, along with a few nibblies while you ponder your dining choices.

The dessert menu is mouth watering (apple strudel being my favourite), but we don't always have room for more than coffee.

We enjoy the Georgian House for special occasions, or for entertaining visitors. It's a gem.

The only negative we've encountered is that, if we dine earlier in the evening (say, 6pm) before too many tables are seated, it seems very quiet and we worry that our conversation can be overheard by other tables. Once more tables are seated, this acoustic effect disappears. I suggest making reservations for 7pm to avoid this, unless you are part of a larger party.

P.S. - thank you, Tripadvisor, for finally correcting the listing from BC to Ontario.
