“A new favorite”
Reviewed March 24, 2013

We have been hear a couple of times, it is in the style of French cuisine. I have had the Beef Bourguignon both times we have been here. It was excellent and the service was perfect. It was a little loud but we had a nice table and were able to talk without a problem.

We finished off our meal by sharing the Flour-less Chocolate Cake, and I am sure we will be having that again.

“Dissappointing”
Reviewed March 17, 2013

While on business here in Charlotte, and with my wife’s love of French preparation of food, we tried this establishment on a Thursday evening. I reviewed the Trip Advisor reviews of this place as I always do, but we were a bit disappointed. We made reservations for 2, didn’t really need them so upon arrival were shown to a table immediately. We were poured some bottled water, no ice; just like they typically do in Europe. We prefer ice, so requested it and were brought a large glass of ice to share between the two of us. We were told the specials regarding the fresh oysters but at over $250 per oyster, we passed. We asked if they could prepare them “Oysters Rockefeller” style but they said no. We did order 6 shrimp, came as a typical cold shrimp cocktail and were very large and good. I ordered the goat cheese salad which basically came as a quiche slice and a small greens side salad on the same plate. Not what I was expecting. The quiche was cold.

For the wine, we inquired what their $17 house white carafe consisted of and we were shown it was a French blend. We asked for just a small sample to see if we liked or not and it was quite good. We usually don’t like blends, but this had likely 60% sauvignon blanc in it and was fine. We got about 2 full glasses each from the carafe; so it was a good value. We also ordered a Caesar salad and asked to split it. It came on 2 separate plates and was quite good, lots of quantity and just the right amount of dressing. My salad came with the side order of anchovies and 5 of a good size were supplied. Just weren’t very salty as they should be.

For the entrees, we asked if they could prepare a steak “Steak Dianne” style. The waitress asked what that was and we described it was a brown gravy with mushrooms in it usually with additional spices. She agreed she would at least ask the chef. She returned later indicating they had no recipe for it and they could try to do it but they would not guarantee it would turn out like we might expect. So we passed on ordering it “Dianne” style. We did order the filet mignon with the béarnaise sauce. I chose the daily special which was a whole Maine lobster for $30 which came with potatoes and vegetables.

The entrees arrived; the steak was prepared perfectly but came with French fries unknown to us and seemed for a high class restaurant to not fit what style potato should have been prepared. My lobster had the tail shell removed and on first bite was cold. The liquid butter they provided also was cold. The lobster was mushy, not firm and crisp. It did have a decent flavor but I like my food piping hot so was disgusted and just ate it making no comment to the waitress.

We finished the entrees; we finished the final sips of wine and then requested the bill as no room for dessert. We did review the dessert list, but Terra Misu doesn’t seem to be a French dessert. Overall we were disappointed with our visit; think the chef was off that night.

“Better and Better”
Reviewed March 17, 2013

I have eaten here numerous times over the years. It has always been a well run upscale restaurant but over the last year everything seems to be better than it was before. Food is better, if that is possible. The service is now excellent. Have spent some time at their bar for drinks and often dinner, it is also excellent. The very knowledgeable waitstaff helps with recommendations on food and wine and beverages. I think that Georges is one of the better of many excellent South Park restaurants at this time.
