This place is very nice and sophisticated, however not having a cloak room is a nuisance. The dance floor is not technically a real sized dance floor but they do try their best to make it one.

Biggest issue is the wait for drinks is terrible. You can expect wait times of 20 minutes just to get your order taken because the staff are busy with mixing cocktails. So if you are ok with waiting 20 minutes for a drink at peak time such as Saturday night 11pm then this place will probably be ok for you. If you prefer not spending large parts of your night waiting to order a drink I recommend visiting elsewhere.

Food was good, but the service was awful. We were seated outside on a Saturday evening with what should’ve been a nice pre show dinner alfresco that instead turned into a night of inattentive waiters, disorganised food orders and just a general lack of care.

It disappoints me as I can see there are many 5 star reviews so perhaps it was just a bad night for them but I won’t be giving it another go.

As I stated, the food was good but the major letdown was the service or lack thereof.

The service was exceptional. The lady who served us had gone above and beyond to ensure that we had a great time.

The foods were great, except every dish that we ordered had a bit of chilli in it, and as a result we couldn't share it with our little girl. So if you're a chilli fan, then check it out.

My dining experience at The George on Collins was very pleasant. The food was good and was delivered promptly. The service was impeccable - our waiter was very diligent, using every opportunity to check on our dining experience. I very much enjoyed the evening and would strongly recommend the venue.

The atmosphere is the restaurant was energetic and vibrant. We were allocated the booth seats which was cosy. The food and drinks came out quickly and timely so we could go to the Comedy Festival. Each and every dish was beautifully presented and it was as soon as it looked. We ordered the Betel Leaf with roasted snapper (Betel leaf was substituted with prawn cracker due to unavailability in the market), Twice Cooked Lamb ribs, Pork Belly and Green Curry with Chicken. Loved them all! Would dine at George on Collins again.

Love, love, loved this restaurant, it is an absolute little gem on Collins Street.

It literally would have received 5 stars in every category for us, except that our initial waiter was quite rude when he thought we were sitting there not ordering anything (to a point where he stopped in front of our booth and looked at his watch!)

We opted to use the QR code on the table (made it easier for splitting the bill) and when the drinks and food started to arrive on our table, he became much friendlier, but that approach should never have happened. We had only been there for 15mins (had ordered drinks while we were waiting for the last member of our party to arrive) so it was unnecessarily rude.

However the rest of the wait staff were lovely, the food was AMAZING!! and the restaurant itself was just beautiful.

FOOD = 4.5/5: The comedy festival banquet has amazing wok tossed greens, a fresh, fishy shredded chicken salad and wonderfully fluffy rice. The sweet sticky pork belly is amazing crispy and tender, but the sauce’s sweetness can be a slightly overwhelming.

ATMOSPHERE/SERVICE = 5/5: The vibe of the place is amazing! Great interior design and fast service.

Amazing food! Service was a bit slow for drinks, we would’ve had an additional round or two of drinks if our server had come over more often. Food came out incredible quick!
Also found it a bit cheeky that no mention of a public holiday surcharge in booking or arriving, especially since the Saturday between Good Friday and Easter Sunday isn’t a public holiday.

Seriously average experience, not the worst ever but definitely will never be back.
This was the only place we could get a booking - really wish I didn't book here.
We chose to sit outside, we suggest to sit inside for future patrons - will probably have more atmosphere and life.
Service was slow and the waitress seemed 'quite out of it' - perhaps her first day.
Had to ask for the drinks menu and food menu - shouldn't have to ask for menus.
Drinks menu was served to us with food / oil dripping on it - after this we dropped our expectations and just made light of it.
Waiters/waitresses heads down not looking around so hard to flag for help.
The food was also average - husband's slow cooked lamb was obviously microwaved, and not hot enough and my Pad Thai noodles with prawns were soggy didn't feel freshly cooked.
The mushroom spring rolls were lovely, would recommend these - still crunchy and fresh so I enjoyed and moved on.
Have been trying to support Melbourne CBD Local small businesses but was left seriously disappointed on our first date night back in the CBD post covid.
We ended up leaving straight after dinner and not ordering further drinks because it was just a nice restaurant experience.
Thanks anyway.

Second time I’ve been and both service and food is outstanding. I have sat on very comfy stools at the high table sections or in a booth and both were comfortable and not too noisy. Cocktails are great. Variety of food choices and all tried have been delectable. Service and staff are nothing less than amazing. Super friendly, accommodating and helpful.

This is my 3rd time here and it was unfortunate that the service this time round wasn't satisfactory as the last 2 were good. They missed an order, we have also had to check in with the waiters a few times as there as we've waited for our food a long time which was odd seeing that other tables that had came in later already got their food. I suspect they've gotten the table numbers mixed up which has caused this. Food was good otherwise.

Great food, great flavour. Our shrimp dumplings were a little on the cold side, but this was resolved by a gesture of apology with a complimentary snapper betal leaf entree which was delish!
Service was exceptional with a special mention to the lovely waiter we had (Christos) who was an absolute delight.
Authentic, warm and engaging. He made our experience just that little bit more memorable.

Place was noisy we have to move outdoor for some peace and quietness.
Food was greasy,oily, cold and overcooked.
Banquet ranges from 65 to 75 dollars overpriced and was not worth it.
I had severe bout of food poisoining within 30 mins after leaving the restaurant .
Would not recommend anyone .
Maybe this is the place for a quick drink.
