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.

We both enjoyed our meals immensely - I had the mushroom soup (Yum) salmon (double Yum) whereas he had the omelette! He enjoyed his meal very much! I don’t know if it was a double Yum but there was only 1 potato piece left!!
You’ve got to try the Baked Alaska - a show in the preparation, and then a delicious dessert!!

And, excellence in service from all our wait staff!

Worth every penny!

I went for Saturday brunch. I was given a beautiful table (by the fireplace). The service was fantastic, food was lovely and we never felt rushed. Lovely building too. My food was well thought out, and delicious. I can't wait to go for dinner next time I am in Montreal. I love O&B places.

Great food and great service. The Devils on Horseback were one of our favorites and the scallops were cooked perfectly. 3 hours have never gone by so quickly. Beautiful space and a great way to spend an evening.

Beautiful golden mile home now houses bar George. The sea bass was divine. Whiskey pudding dessert highly recommended. Very attentive service.
Been her several times and I am never disappointed.

Food was some of the best I've ever had. The Beef Wellington is an absolute must and was easily worth the price. Loved the decor and ambience. The Baked Alaska was a great note to end on and all the drinks were great!

Service was way too long. Servers would spend way too much time talking to customers while the other majority would be waiting for service.
The quality of the Food and the the individual hosting at the reception made a good balance at the end. But no second way to do a first good impression.

Bar George has a grandiose decor but the food does not match it! When we went they were short staffed so service was erratic. Yet if the food had been great, we would have forgotten that.
Our plates were all different but all rather ordinary. The omelet, that look like a taco, came with a few sauteed potatoes and a bunch of green, nothing more in the plate . The american eggs had the same plain potatoes and 2 small toasts. And so on...
So, food is disappointing but the place itself is gorgeous

Very solid tasting menu for Valentine's day. Service was accommodating and very friendly. Only complaint is that I find the restaurant a bit dark, especially considering how beautifully plated the dishes were. The venison Rossini should be a regular menu item, it was truly spectacular.

This is a very beautiful restaurant with! staff is very welcoming and professional. Menu is very interesting with some very traditional dishes you rarely find any more like Beef Wellington. Fairly good wine list. Very nice Bar with fun atmosphere. Great for a drink after work and before you sit down to eat. A very Montreal sort of place!

It was my first time eating brunch there, and the food (Eggs Benedict) was delicious except that there were no sides - not even a garnish! I guess I was supposed to order that to be included. Next time.

Service was a bit on the slow side - the menu was delivered promptly by our waitress but getting a coffee (and refill) finally happened by the notice of the restaurant manager! We would not see our waitress again until the delivery of the dessert menu! And, finally we saw her again with the delivery of the bill - which did not belong to our table. We did not see her again so I guess she was busy pushing more papers. Again, we were rescued by the restaurant manager - hopefully he and the bus boys collected the tip because our waitress did not deserve a penny of it! I would be more sympathetic (I did the waiter thing in summers between semesters at University) but my table mate noticed that she was involved in a gab fest near the entrance.

Of course, I will go again but I will request a new server, if Lauren again presents herself, at my table!

Cream of mushroom was supreme. Fois gras was superbe. Beef Wellington melted in my mouth. The quail was absolutely the best. Perfect service, friendly staff, fine tuned advice and suggestions. Comforting atmosphere. One of my favorites in Montreal.
