    Our absolute favourite place in Thunder Bay. Always our first choice for a special occasion. The food is great but it is the staff that makes the restaurant so great. They all go out of their way to make your experience special, as soon as you walk in you feel at home.

    Trevor and Megan were excellent servers and paced our meal perfectly!! The food was fantastic as usual- Fettuccine a la Giorg, pork tenderloin and half chicken were done to perfection!! The Caesar salad never disappoints and the new beet salad was delicious!! Desserts were enjoyed by everyone- lemon and saffron crème brûlée was amazing as was the lemon olive oil cake!

    Amazing place to eat, all of the food was fantastic. Wonderful atmosphere and even better service. The nicest restaurant I have been to in Thunder Bay! Would highly recommend. Our favorite was the fettuccine dish but we also loved the fried artichokes.

    From start to finish the appetizer, salad and pasta were all amazing. We had arancini balls, Caesar salad and the Linguini Giorgio. The waitress Sarah was extremely efficient and courteous. Best service that I have experienced in Thunder Bay.. Thank-you for a wonderful evening and we will be back soon.

    Celebrated my mother’s birthday this evening and couldn’t be more happy. Overall, dining at Giorg was a delight from start to finish. The delicious food, impeccable service, and charming ambiance made for a memorable experience. From having our coats hung for us at the door, to our car being started and warmed for us at the end of the night, every detail was beyond expectations. Thank you so much to Trevor, the kitchen, and the rest of staff for a perfect night.

    Wow! I can't say enough about the service at Giorg. From the greeting upon arrival to being helped into my coat at the end of our evening, the service was outstanding. Our waiter, Trevor, was fantastic - he was attentive, had everything timed beautifully, and he even went out in the terrible cold wind, started our vehicle for us, and backed it up close to the front door of the restaurant. The food was very good and the ambience was lovely, if a little noisy from a boisterous birthday party. We were tucked in a cozy booth on the upper level and our dining experience was great.

    Had been so looking forward to this dinner as hadn’t been to Giorg in a long time. Reservations made about 6 weeks in advance and we were seated at a table in the middle of the restaurant next to the kitchen, lots of traffic back and forth. It was so loud we couldn’t talk at all. The waitress had to lean in close to hear our orders. The noise level was like a bar at midnight. We went expecting a quiet dining experience but it was far from it. Extremely disappointed.

    I had a private party in the back rooms. 25 people, cocktail style. The service was exceptional. Janet seamlessly navigated the rooms, knew everyone’s name, and remembered drink orders. Marie made amazing cocktails all evening. The food was absolutely delicious. We had antipasto platter, chicken skewers, risotto balls, fried zucchini fritters, fried artichokes, and bruschetta, and it was some of the best food we’ve ever had. Will absolutely be hosting a gathering there again as soon as possible.

    Our party of six enjoyed the comfortable, relaxed setting with excellent, friendly and informative service. To start, the Antipasti Plate with its amazing cheeses was enjoyed by all. Our go-to's were the Caesar Salad, Fettuccine alla Giorg and Rigatoni Bolognese and as always absolutely DELICIOUS! Drinks and the shared dessert were wonderful. Great attention to detail - an exceptional experience once again! Thank You!

    Giorg is by far our favourite restaurant for family occasions and special meals with friends. The staff are extremely professional and obliging. Trevor is an amazing head weighter and it's lovely to see some new faces, too, joining the weight staff. The food is exemplary. Pasta Giorg is a fast favourite, as are the salads and fancy cocktails/fine wines. What stands out is the care taken to oblige the customer - even preparing dishes not advertised on the menu. This is a gem of a restaurant... Service, food, and ambience.

    Kirk our server was very friendly and informative about the menu. The meals were good, but the carpaccio was sort of disappointing this time. It was cut way too thin in our opinion as we have had it every time we have eaten here.

    A diamond of a restaurant in the rough. Still one of my favourite restaurants in Thunder Bay to eat. Located off the beaten path in what was once a busy downtown south business core. Fantastic food, great ambience, competent waiters and competitive prices.
