The ambiance and decor are absolutely wonderful, as is the service. We were served by Thierry, a wonderful young man with astute perspective on life. We enjoyed our conversations with him very much. If those were the only important elements, I'd give this place 5 stars.
That being said, the food options are a bit limited and most options were too expensive considering their ingredients and the very small portion sizes. I was still hungry when I left. I understand that we are paying for the lovely and unique venue, but I am not sure I would ever go back unless I was entertaining an out-of-town guest.
Awful, inattentive service. Left us standing for minutes without being greeted despite multiple servers available. Table next to us left unbussed for 30 mins (and this place is supposed to be high end). Staff openly chatted and gossiped amongst themselves tableside. Overall a place with no service culture but with high prices and slow, overcooked food. To be avoided.
OK food, worst service. The waitress didn’t check on us at all. Our glasses were empty since the middle of the meal but nobody added water. Wait for long time and have to call someone to take order and give check
Great atmosphere and great service.
Not very sure about the taste of Avocado Toast. The texture is overall perfect, but not very a fan of the avocados, it’s too sweet. However, I will still recommend to my friend for dinner maybe?
It was my first time there. I've heard good things. Yet my experience was just ok. Honestly I expected much better service.
Great experience- except for very loud Dressed to Kill pre Gran Prix party at the restaurant.
One of the most enjoyable experiences ever. DTK Magazine party going on - high energy - lots of people - lots to take in. The distractions did not interfere with a wonderful meal. Staff were extremely attentive and helpful personally navigating us through the throngs (in and as we were leaving), taking photos, posing with the executive chef, and the lust goes on.
Excellent service and food! Highly recommend!
Glad to write a review when i feel the staff go out of their way to meet clients demands.
The manager (Gailee) sp? And the hostess (with the mostest) were absolutely amazing. True hospitality
Atmosphère and food are great. Waitress was a little inattentive.
Le cadre est magnifique, cependant la nourriture était bonne mais manquait d'un peu de saveur et aurait mérités d'être plus relevé.
An amazing experience, will definitely go again, can’t believe no one has told me about this place. Such a unique place. The food is absolutely delicious and the service is like 6 stars out 5 :)
The food and service was outstanding !
Had a great time. Staff took very good care of our dietary restrictions— the chef even made a separate sauce for my main meal since I couldn’t eat the preset one!
We decided to split some appetizers at Bar George which has a British vibe to the menu. The appetizers were unique and delicious! Great service by Caroline. Was a great dining experience.
It was a place to wear church clothes to.
Service was good and food was great
Always great food! One of my favorites before an event at the bell center. Go early for a drink in the bar! Thanks!
Amazing food and wine! Our server was nice but maybe a bit new to the job. We waited a VERY long time for our dessert (so he might have misunderstood us, but he still didn't come to check on us for more than 30 minutes...)
As guests of the hotel, Bar George is the place to be! Montréal is a great place to visit, the hotel and Bar George are the reason we visit. A short flight from Philadelphia, great weekend getaway!
Great food except for the shrimp two ways... one way is tempura fried but with the shell on (how do you eat that?) the other way is grilled then split but not grilled enough to let the meat separate easily from the shell. Everything else was wonderful but the service which was somewhere between distracted and disengaged. Beautiful historic rooms, lively setting and definitely popular.
Other than a mix up with the bills, all was great. We will return soon!
Friday evening was hopping - food was outstanding!
Went to celebrate my birthday. Quality of the food is very good and the servers were all very nice and attentive.
Beautiful location with great historical value for Montreal.
The service was excellent. The food was excellent. The building is the most beautiful building we have seen anywhere!! I am planning on coming back and staying in the hotel next time we come to Montreal.
Bar George was an amazing atmosphere in an old house. The food is outstanding and the service impeccable.
Gorgeous antique atmosphere. Loved it and highly recommend.
Had a wonderful time at Bar George. Staff was incredibly friendly and attentive to our table. Food was fantastic as well! Will definitely be returning.
Extraordinary decor, attentive and available staff, very good choice of wine and dishes are very good. We would have liked more choice in the starters / snacks.
As always, the warm welcome from the host set the tone for a lovely evening. :)
Hard not to recommend Bar George especially for a special occasion. We enjoyed our anniversary dinner there and the service, food and ambiance were impeccable!
L'ambiance et la nourriture est excellente, dommage que le service à la section bar (je précise) ne se compare pas au reste. Je fréquente souvent le Bar Georges et à chaque fois je me dis qu'ils auraient avantage à rehausser la qualité du service. Souvent, il faut redemander la même chose plusieurs fois avant de l'obtenir, faire des pieds et des mains pour attirer leur attention avant de l'obtenir et ce, malgré qu'il n'y aille que quelques clients ou demander expressément des choses de base, comme un verre d'eau ou la carte des vins.
Mon expérience à la salle à manger est toutefois bien différente, le service y est rehaussé.
Outstanding ! Great food and service. You have to try it at least one time in your life !
Delicious as usual! Excellent service.
Beautifully renovated historic club. Great english-influenced food. Great service and nice ambiance. Convenient downtown location. They could add a few healthier options on the lunch menu.
Excellent dinner in a lovely setting. Too bad about the loud club/dance music. Not sure why restaurants do this when a majority of patrons can’t stand the loud noise.
Lauren who looked after us was a joy and we had a great lunch.
In Montreal there are many many choices for dining and we wanted somewhere local to our accommodation, which had character and style. Bar George ticked all the boxes.
The place was about half full on a Tuesday lunchtime and the three staff members were all attentive. Lauren our main server had oodles of personality and was chatty in a really good way. She plainly liked her job but after chatting we learned that she had ambition to continue her education at a serious level. For a science graduate she had great knowledge of food, wine and road building! In a nutshell she was a great server and a 'people person'.
Our lunch of scotch egg (11/10) club sandwich (10/10) calves liver (9/10) was delicious but the whisky pudding to finish it off was too sweet for me (8/10) but not for my partner ; the sour cream ice cream it was topped with was excellent. Wine was pricey and a glass of admittedly very good premier crus pink bubbly at $30 was too indulgent, but tasty non the less. My local red ale at $8 seemed much better value.
As other folks have mentioned the bar and restaurant area has an amazing setting and for a special ambiance in Montreal I doubt that it can be beaten.
Finally the test of a good eatery...the humble chip (well I'm British and so is the restaurant) the last one was as good as the first and also still crisp. We were impressed also with the scotch egg, great flavour in the meat case and a correctly runny egg in the middle......for several moments I thought i was back in Yorkshire!
Très bon service, cocktails excellents et nourriture au diapason même si un peu onéreuse si on prend la carte des soupers (le menu bar est plus abordable même si moins recherché)
Bar George is a very comfortable, traditional restaurant located in a nineteenth century mansion. Food is excellent. The beef Wellington was outstanding. Wine selection is impressive as is the service. This restaurant is perfect for a special occasion or a great night out.
