“Best Rissoto in town!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 August 2014

Went here on Friday night for a couple of drinks and dinner. Got a nice table in the rear dining area which is quiet but still part of the atmosphere. The staff are really lovely and knowlegable. We both went for the seafood Rissoto and are still raving about it. Not a huge serving but enough. Very moist and creamy and excellent fish and prawns. We had the $7 wine per glass special to George members!!! I went for an ssb which was better than the $12 one I had at the Terrace earlier? We have eaten here before and that was also excellent. It doesnt cost anything to join and you get a few privellages which is great!!!! Oh and it is also in the entertainment book!!!!

“Good place to eat”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 August 2014

Went for a business dinner and found the food and service to be of a good quality. Good selection of dishes and the service was friendly and efficient.

I had the lamb and it was cooked perfectly and a about the right portion size. I did not have a desert, but the others at the table said they were really good without exception.

Lots of variety, so most people should be able to find something they like.

“Could have been better”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 August 2014

Of all the 13 pieces of food items fo high-tea, all were delivious and worth the price except for the bagel. I would like to see them replace one of the 3 scones with another savoury item. 3 scones though petite in size are just too much. The lavender strawberry jam was subtlely frangrant.

However, for the price and type of restaurant, I would expect to be given the bill at the table. Instead many guests, including I have to walk to the cashier and pay. There was only one table which I saw were given the bill at the table.

Also towards 4pm, they started to pack and get ready for dinner. Part of the preparation was dismantling a long table, while the other guests were still having their high-tea. I find that this is disruptive and not condusive at all.

Lastly, half way through my meal, I found a chip in the cover of the tea-pot. Again, something not quite fitting for a restaurant of such status. So it is a been there, done it thing.

“Great place for a drink”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 August 2014

We were after a place for an after dinner drink on a Saturday night. We didn't want somewhere noisy and full of hipsters where you have trouble getting a drink and it's impossible to find a seat. The George filled the bill perfectly. Quite but still trendy, a few people but not packed. Nice atmosphere, and the staff were great, very helpful. We had a nice glass of wine that didn't cost an arm and a leg. All in all a great experience. Will certainly be going back :-)

“A Real Gem”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 July 2014 via mobile

We went to The George to celebrate a friend recovering from an illness - we couldn't have picked a better place. The ambiance was beautiful, decor inviting. The food was excellent and beautifully presented, reasonable priced and the staff were attentive, friendly and knowledgable. We had a wonderful evening and will definitely be returning.
