The old is celebrated in new ways at Bar George, a modern-day rendezvous set in the grand heritage home once belonging to Sir George Stephen. Honouring the former resident’s roots, our chefs cook up contemporary takes on classic U.K. fare, spiked with Québécois quirks, while our bar pours time-tested drinks. Situated in downtown Montréal’s Golden Square Mile, Bar George is located inside Le Mount Stephen Hotel, south of Boulevard de Maisonneuve on rue Drummond. Open seven days a week for breakfast, lunch, dinner, late night bites and drinks, and weekend brunch.

Ambiance is the very best feature of this restaurant.
The service, however, was not consistent. I made the mistake of booking dinner online for 7:30 but failed to notice (until we arrived) that I had made the booking for am, instead of pm. Unfortunately, there were no tables for us and we were out of luck for dinner. We opted instead to grab a drink at the bar and then look elsewhere for dinner. We were seated way in a little back room, which was not nearly as lovely as the main bar area, and the male waiter was not friendly at all, nor very prompt. It took about 20 mins to get our drinks. The night turned around when the hostess returned just as we were getting our coats to say that a table had become available in the dining room. We were delighted that she was still trying to accommodate us. Super friendly and really thoughtful.
The music was a bit of a strange mix and I found it distracting from such a beautiful room and setting.
The wine list also had some strange selections (huge amounts of bottles from France, but then only 2 from Spain and a few from New Zealand, none or not many New World, sadly).
Perhaps the restaurant can call to confirm the bookings the day before, which would avoid mistakes like this? I realise it was completely my error, but it was odd that 7:30 am was even an option for supper!

Decor is astounding. So nice to see these older homes renovated and kept beautiful. As a restaurant we found the food to be fantastic. There were 5 of us and everyone thoroughly enjoyed every part of their meals (appetizers and main). We lingered over coffee and digestifs and the mood of the place changed into a great bar scene as the evening went on (after 11 pm). Would definitely visit again.

Très bel endroit pour un 5 à 7 ou pour le souper avec des endroits bien délimités. Le décor est exceptionnel et le service fut très sympathique tout en restant porfessionnel.
Magnifique endroit à découvrir

We went for brunch, was very good, service was nice. The best part was the hotel, Le Mount Stephen. It was beautiful, ornate, and historic, felt like we stepped back in time to Downton Abbey era. Make sure to walk around upstairs (where the bathrooms are) and see all the rooms, old furniture, and stain glass windows.

Bar George is situated in a beautiful mansion with all of the touches one would expect in a mansion of this period. The service is friendly and efficient and the food is good, not exceptional. It actually took us longer to get our coffee and tea than it did to have our food orders come to the table after ordering. Our server, Tom, was very attentive. I enjoyed our time wandering around the house after we ate and would return when in Montreal.....

AMAZING FOOD, AMAZING SERVICE, AMAZING AMBIANCE! BAr George surpasses our expectations. There was a little issue with Open Table offering a time that was not available, so when the hostess Lauren called us to change reservations times she was SO ACCOMMODATING and professional, even offering to help us find an alternative reservation elsewhere if the new time wasn’t good for us (seriously Lauren was so impressive) - this made me want to go to Bar George even more and I’m glad we made it work. Food was spectacular - please get the mushroom soup and chips with curry sauce, sooo delicious. It was our anniversary and babymoon - they treated us to a lovely complimentary dessert and went above and beyond to ensure our night was perfect with the most gorgeous table by a fireplace. They were so apologetic for the open table timing issue...the manager Frederick came to check on us, was lovely to speak to and made us feel so welcome. He and the hostess Lauren made our night so special and we will definitely be back next time in Montreal. If you want a great ambiance, amazing food and service - go to Bar George!!!
