The place is busy, even early on a Wednesday evening; make a reservation. It attracts an older, better-dressed crowd; I was glad I didn’t wear shorts. We tried the Hungarian specialties (Beef Goulash; Chicken Paprikash - approx $28 ea) which arrived as the largest platters of food for an entree that I’ve ever seen. The large Greek salad ($20) was... More

I've heard about this restaurant for years and finally had the delightful pleasure to dine here. The atmosphere was dark, but elegant. The food was INCREDIBLE. The small Greek salad (a definite MUST) was enough to feed four (4) adults. Entrees are HUGE and unless you are planning on taking home leftovers, you might consider splitting an entrée. The apple...

This place is in a strip mall, half the Hungarian restaurant, half an Italian restaurant. There is often live entertainment. There is a small dance area. The clientele is mostly seniors from the area. The portions are huge. My chicken paprikosh could have fed four at $27.00. With pasta but no veggies. Problem is that it was tasteless. The paprika...

Having hiked in Joshua Tree, we hadn't intended on something fancy for the evening, but the reviews caught my eye. Alicia (I hope I got it right!) was a wonderful and authentic host, encouraging us to make the most of our Hungarian dining experience. At her suggestion, we got a Hungarian merlot, greek salad, goulash, cabbage rolls and topped it... More

This restaurant has been a destination for many years. It's atmosphere reflects its historic connection to the community. The service staff is very pleasant and helpful. They say that it is Hungarian but they also have Italian and Spanish items on the menu. The food is fabulous! We were with another couple and shared a Greek Salad that I highly... More

We (4 of us) visited Chef Georges for dinner on a recent Wednesday night. The place wasn't a packed as it on weekends, but they still had music in the bar, which was pretty lively. It's tucked away in a small shopping center on Washington & Country Club so it's a little hard to find at first but so worth... More

Food here is always very good and portions plentiful. Service is excellent. The only thing keeping it from a 5 is atmosphere which is nice but not teriffic.

A group dinner out; slow to get started, busy staff, but once we were seated, our server, Aliczia, put on roller skates (it seemed) and we were looked after. Our server has the most amazing sense of hostessing and helping, and even with some food requests, all were handled with grace and humour. Part of the restaurant is a bar,... More

A warm and inviting atmosphere where you're treated like "one of the family". The food is plentiful and spiced to bring out the true European flavors. Highly recommend splitting a dinner item and don't forget the apple strudel....Yummm..!! The evening music has good variety and not too loud, so you can still have a conversation with other guests.....and yes, a... More
