I invited a couple of friends to dinner there last Friday. The staff was friendly, and the atmosphere was delightful. While it was at the higher end of my budget, it was a lovely experience, and I would dine again at Gee's for a special occasion.

Great food as usual at Gee's. We had the wood-fired guinea fowl and the whole seabass. The seabass had been boned but left whole. Starters were beetroot salad and avocado, pecorino & chive salad. Desserts were affagato, try it with Pedro ximenez instead of espresso. All very delicious. The overall experience was excellent too, with friendly attentive staff and casual muted atmosphere. This is not a cheap place to eat a la carte, but I would wholeheartedly recommend.

By chance all four of our party on New Year's Day chose Guinea fowl. The meat was absolutely delicious and perfectly cooked -- best thing I've ever tasted at Gee's. We'd eat there more often if the ambience weren't too noisy for ageing ears.

Food choices very limited and overpriced. Staff milling around and not being attentive. Then had the audacity to automatically apply 12.5% service. I started coming here over 25 years ago and sadly won’t be coming again

PROS
Service and ambience were spot on.

CONS
I was okay paying extra for a Christmas day booking ($85 p/p without drinks), but I expected them to step it up with the food to the level: Special Occasion - you know, to make it wort the $85. It was mediocre at best. Turkey was dry and the soft shell crab soggy. I'd still have been disappointed and underwhelmed if I had paid half the price to be honest.

Gee's
Responded on 6 January 2020

Thank you for your review and your kind words regarding the service and the ambience. We're so sorry to hear this. We did put real effort into the Christmas menu so it's a real disappointment to hear that we underwhelmed. In future if you let us know at the time we will always be willing to make sure you leave us happy.

Excellent Sunday lunch. Just a little noisy whilst eating but this is due to the building I guess. For a Yorkshire man £20.00 for a Sunday lunch is much higher that we would pay back at home. But. The beef was cooked so well - melt in your mouth beef! Well done for that. Also, the Yorkshire puddings were very good too. The staff were very friendly and looked after us well. With drinks a £71.00 bill for two for Sunday lunch was just a little over the top I thought.

We enjoyed an outstanding evening at Gee's on Saturday night. Its informality is its strongest suite; the seating is relaxed and the noise of everyone's conversation surrounds you making the whole conservatory feel strangely communal yet intimate through its anonymity. The service was faultless and the food both generous and reasonably priced. We'll be back and have recommended others planning to visit should book.
