Having lived in Budapest for a year, Tom George has settled into being my girlfriend and my favourite 'fall back' restaurant when we're in the city centre.
We've never had a problem with the service, the maitre d's are always very professional (and consistently extremely pretty, I've noticed? Anyway...) and the waiting staff attentive and focused.
The food isn't mind-numbingly good, but it's pretty consistent fare, Pizzas are excellent and the wine/cocktail range is sound (some of the cocktails are particularly tasty - I'm a sucker for the Lemon Martini). It's definitely tasty as far as an Italian restaurant in Budapest could be - although, as is standard for land-locked Hungary, anything remotely fish related is pricey. Oh, the chilli olive oil accompaniment is excellent and *brutal*.
In Hungarian terms, it's actually quite expensive - but you have to bear in mind it's in a prime location and very nicely done out. (It seems minor celebrities frequent it if they're ever in Hungary... oh and Bill Clinton ate there, too). In English/American exchange rate terms though, it's still cheap when it comes down to it. My Girlfriend and I never spend over 15,000ft for a starter each, pizza and bottle of wine - which is about £40. If you just have a pizza and a beer, it's closer to 8000ft (£22-ish). As I say, expensive by Budapest terms but very reasonable to a 'Western' wallet.
*Update* Interested to see a previous review (Kate S) suggesting it's a meeting place for certain clientele... I must admit I'd never noticed this as an issue at all but will certainly be paying more attention to the couples around me from now on...
