From the minute you enter The George , it sets the stage for ambiance. The host and servers were top notch. When you order an app, make sure you get the stuffed mushrooms! We ordered the seared scallops which were scrumptious. Even the salted caramel strawberry vanilla cake was delish! The entertainment did not disappoint! Looking forward to my next visit so I can get the short rib; understand they are the best. Great night out. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

The George has such a fun vibe. We were there for a Sunday brunch and celebrating my mom’s birthday. The piano played in the bar area snd the atmosphere was lively. The dining room was beautiful and easy for my elder parents to navigate, but with most tables full, it was difficult to hear each other. The food took a while coming, but it was busy. My dad’s special - the lobster Benedict- came with the lobster head on the plate which I assume was for decoration. It was a bit odd. Even more odd was that the shell remained on the tail underneath the Benedict, so it had to be disassembled before eating; I think that must have been an oversight. My Delaware frittata was huge and adequate in flavor, but nothing special. Others had the French toast- it was certainly good, but nothing special. Finally, we had dessert! We sampled three cakes - they are huge! They get them from a local bakery on Thursdays, so that might be the day to go, do you can eat them at their freshest. We sampled the chocolate peanut butter, the carrot, and a white cake with a layer of jam and salted caramel. All had too much icing, but better that than not enough! I’d give it a 3.5/5.

Food wasn't great my eggs and lobster Benedict was overcooked and needed more seasoning. The service was pretty good and it's a Beautiful interior. Live music was a nice touch.

Burch- After waiting about 35-40 minutes The food was good but the majority of the meals were cold (kitchen back up?). The waitress was very pleasant but in no rush. Will give it another try at a different time of day.

We had a reservation for 9pm for 4 people.. After arriving we waited 20 minutes before a member of my party went to the host desk and asked if a waiter could come to our table to bring us water and take our order. 5 minutes go by and a man brings us empty glasses with no water. He asks if we want to put in drinks and we said we were ready to place food and drink orders. He said he’d take our order once he brought the water over. Another 20 minutes go by. We walked out. No one at the front desk. I can’t believe what an awful time we had. We’ve been excited to check out this new spot. We had to go home and cook dinner because no other kitchens downtown were still open by the time we got out of the George (around 10pm). What a complete disappointment.

Our steaks were cooked wrong and because we didn't see out waiter for about 20 min following receiving our food, it was never fixed. Nothing was taken off the bill, however complimentary shots were sent over, which to me, did not make up for the incorrect meal.

Great atmosphere considering Covid restrictions. Piano music was nice since we haven't had any entertainment since early 2020. Service wasn't outstanding nor bad at the same time. Food was served quickly. My Salmon dish was overcooked and quinoa salad a bit bland for my taste. Other's in our party enjoyed their food. Overall, I would still return to this restaurant.

100% serious, one of the BEST (at least top 3) chicken dinners I've ever had in my entire life! A hidden Providence 'gem', I highly recommend The George to all who are either looking for a great evening, fantastic dinner or all of the above! My only note... the service took a while, aka. about 45 minutes for my party & I to receive our food... however, the wait was well worth it :)

Went for Easter dinner and the food and service was excellent. A little slow because they were very busy, but to be expected. The surprise visit from the owner in his Hawaiian shirt was warm and welcoming.

Food was great but way overpriced and the service was just ok. Would have been better if the waitress didn’t bring us a drink that we didn’t order and then charged us for it.

What a great restaurant in the old 121 space. We haven’t visited since they opened due to Covid but the space is elegantly designed. There is a bar lounge and a dining space. The service is great. Owner is very friendly and thankful for patronage. The drinks were perfect and the food was a home run! Looking forward to adding this to our regular spots!

Service was impeccable. Food was delightful with very nice presentations. My only caveat would be if ordering single malt, or bourbon, only order it meat with ice on the side. The ice cubes are too small for a rocks drink.
