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.

    The hostess, the drinks, the ambience, the crowd - everything was good. However, it lacked good service. I was seated beside my friend for a long time nobody asked me for my order or served water. I had to ask a few times for water. I don't think the bartenders had a bad attitude, maybe they were just tired. They just seemed disconnected. I noticed they wouldn't ask anyone for a refill or a glass of water. Avoiding eye contact. I love the place and the vibe. I hope this can be taken positively and worked upon. Service excellence is everything. Nevertheless, I still left a 22% tip.

    Ambience was unique and memorable! So warm and cozy and felt like a steppes into a 20th century gorgeous building Service was so personal and an experience. The bartender/owner came to explain all the special cocktails and they did not disappoint. So good. Octopus was the best I have ever had. Know it is a more luxury experience. Just would like to see portions a tiny bit larger for the price.

    Bar George's food and drinks pedigree stretches beyond reason. This is by far my favourite and best restaurant in Montreal (it's an unfair comparison, Bar George stands by itself in a separate category, really). The food is always fantastic and no matter what I order I am always delighted with my meal! This time I got the Beef Wellington and my girlfriend had the Seared King Salmon. I had my favourite cocktail, George's Elixir. Servers are also great and always efficient, happy and polite, and they played along to make me look like a gentleman in front of my girlfriend. The servers are at the top of their game (special thanks to the gentleman who manages the restaurant). Can’t wait to return and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend to anyone looking for a legendary experience in Montreal.

    Du point de vue de la décoration, les boiseries de la salle à manger sont superbes et impressionnantes et ce, malgré leur âge. Il en est de même du bar proprement dit où le foyer exhibe un travail du marbre, à mon avi, plutôt impressionnant. Cela dit, bien sûr, nous visitions l'établissement pour sa cuisine et notre expérience nous laisse bien partagé. D'abord le service; il était correct, avec suffisamment de personnel en salle pour assurer un bon déroulement ainsi qu'une présence diligente et attentive, pour un midi de mi-semaine, passablement achalandé. Du côté cuisine, la carte du midi offrait un choix entre un menu à la carte et une table d'hôte de deux ou trois services. En entrée, le potage de courge était bien distinctif et goûteux et constituait une excellente entrée. Les deux plats principaux que nous avons eu l'occasion de déguster, nous étions trois convives, nous ont laissé "bien partagés". Les saumons était forts relevés et très piquant en bouche. Heureusement que la salade qui l'accompagnait apportait la fraîcheur nécessaire pour soulager le brûlent en bouche. Quant à la macreuse braisée ainsi que les carottes et les oignons cipolins caramélisés qui l'accompagnait, encore là, les saveurs étaient forts relevées, et la sauce trop épaisse et presque absente, nous a laissé sur notre appétit. Les desserts, qui étaient forts bons, nous ont sorti de la déception de nos plats principaux. Somme toute, nous avons quitté les lieux avec un avis "bien partagé".

    We were 5 persons and found the service especially after the main course inattentive, not asking guests if they wanted coffee or desert, not ensuring water glasses were filled. Food wise the starters, mushroom soup and the BG salad were great, the main courses were just OK. If you want to dine in an amazing Golden Mile Mansion of years gone by (which is why we choose Bar George) this is the place.

    I celebrated my 5yr anniversary with my wife. All in all everything was good except the waiter flirting with a girl at the table next to us. On top of that, he was talking to another table for 15 minutes while I was waiting for him to run my card. After paying, I tried getting a drink at the bar with my wife, after spending $300. I was shut down by the host and the manager was overwhelmed. This is a horrible look for a restaurant or this status. Absolutely UNACCEPTABLE service. They were only accommodating outside visitors waiting on line. Why not take care of clients who ate at the restaurant and spent good money?

    To begin, the ambience and atmosphere at Bar George is both wonderfully stately and cozy. My wife and I found the decor and lighting to be particularly romanting, perfect for a special night out! All of the staff we encountered were friendly, professional, and cordial. Zach, our waiter, was attentive and delightful, and offered excellent meal and drink suggestions. Now to the food, we ordered an entree of scallops and chips, and mains of lobster risotto and beef wellington. The scallops were cooked perfectly (not a hint of rubbery texture as you can get some places) and subtly flavoured. I'm not a big seafood eater, but these were good. The chips were as nice as french fries can get, but the real treat here was the curry dipping sauce. Savoury and delicious! I had a bite of my wife's lobster risotto, and again I'm not big into seafood but it was spot on delectable. Finally, eating the beef wellington made me feel like Winston Churchill himself. The meat was tender, juicy, and everything a nice cut of beef should be. The pastry was not too flaky but not too doughy, Pilsbury could never. While you do pay for an experience this extravagant and enjoyable, it was definitely worth it, and we're already planning our next visit.

    Unfortunately, Bar George food seems to be suffering from shrinkflation; also, our food was tepid (if nicely presented and tasty), and the coffee did not stay hot. The serving staff was very cheerful and obliging, but service was slow (understaffing?)

    Beautiful rooms and friendly staff, but expensive and plain food. I paid $30 for mediocre English breakfast. Also very few vegetarian options. Great place to go if you're more concerned about the ambiance than the food itself.

    Excellent food, great atmosphere, great service, EXCELLENT sommelier... Pricing high but within spec for the expectation. Only real complaint was a little slower service than I'd have preferred and the room was rather hot. Very minor complaints considering the excellent experience. I would certainly be back there at my next opportunity.
