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.

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.

Excellent lunch dans un décor exceptionnel. Le service fut serviable et courtois. Un peu cher pour le lunch mais ce fut une belle expérience tout de même.

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!

From the moment we arrived we were treated like royalty. Beautiful setting with great vibe. Enjoyed craft cocktails in the lively bar and an amazing meal in the dining room. Friendly, attentive, knowledgeable, accommodating staff. Would drive 4 hours to Montreal just for this restaurant!

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.

Sumptuous environment and beautiful bar. I was there for new year's eve and took their special menu. Can't complain about the food. It was up to my expectations. The wine selection by the glass was rather disappointing. I was by myself and would not buy a full bottle, which is too bad as their wine list looked quite extensive. I would have expected to have access to better wines even by the glass. The service was okay, but not too attentive. Food was coming in on time, but my glass was empty and I had to wait for the barmaid to eventually take care of it.

Food is outstanding ... we had the beef Wellington and lamb duo and did not regret our choices. The starters are also delicious. Yes, it is a bit pricey but like others have said, for a special occasion it’s well worth it. And the decor is just stunning.

Amazing food, incredible service and hospitality, beautiful design! This was our second time dining at Bar George and it was just as great as the first. Unique and delicious dishes to try. The dinks are really good too. The actual restaurant itself is so beautiful! It has a really fun yet cozy atmosphere. It is definitely a must if you're in Montreal!

My friends and I had a very pleasant time at Bar George. The food & service were on point, the place is really stunning, and it is located in the heart of downtown. The building itself is worth a visit, but I would definitely recommend going for a drink or dinner to live the full experience!

A lot of waiters rushing around ignoring customers - very difficult to flag down - and a very limited brunch menu in a room without windows - would not recommend. Try the bar next door instead.
