Service was strangely inconsistent. We were initially seated outside and it was windy and cold. They were completely booked, but the waitress found a table inside for us after I asked, which was sooo wonderful. Unfortunately the service went downhill a bit after that. I know they were busy, but they had plenty of staff. Empty glasses taken away without the offer of another drink - except as we were leaving.
My husband had the wood-fired lamb shoulder, which wasn't really wood-fired. No unctuous charcoal taste at all. Just an average piece of lamb. The potato gratin and roasted carrots sides were just ok. I had the squid with romesco and olive fregola salad - apart from maybe a few too many olives for my liking, it was totally delicious. Squid was charred beautifully and still tender. Salad was scrumptious. Would absolutely have again. Despite some hits and misses, I would definitely return. Great atmosphere too.

Missed 2 of our sides dishes with our party package. Especially when we asked the question if there is anymore to come.
Coffee was split and too weak, no creama on top.
Paid $84 for 12 prawns. Well over priced. (This should of been communicated that this is going to be an $$$ would you still like to order them)
As 5 out of 6 were new customers, This was very disappointed experience.

I was really disappointed that we were told that the second sitting did not matter and the table would be ours for the evening. We ordered a second bottle of quite expensive wine to sit and enjoy but, once the wine came we were asked to move outside because the table was required. It was FREEZING and had we known we would never have ordered another bottle of wine. Extremely extremely disappointing.

The food was delicious however, the serves were very small which made it hard to share. It would have been good to be recommended to order more for our table. Some staff were great, others made us feel like it was an inconvenient thing to order a drink. Good atmosphere.

When I booked I wasn’t told the menu was only pizza for lunch. The actual online menu looks great! But we couldn’t order any of that. They run out of the wine we ordered. They promised gluten free options but the chef “forgot” the gluten free bases, so my friend had to order from the Stag menu. Slow service even though we were one of three tables. Bill was overcharged by $100, which was amended only after we had all paid- so it was annoying.

Overall fantastic experience. Food delicious. Great service. We sat outside and it was a bit too busy with pedestrians; ruined the ambiance a lil bit. We'll definitely be back though and hope to sit inside next time :)

We were very looking forward to visiting Yiasou George but overall were disappointed in the end. We decided on the 'Boat Party' menu, which we later regretted since the serving sizes were smaller than what was stated on the menu, and the selection of dishes were average.
The food was fairly nice - we received olives, dips, prawns, spiced cauliflower, kingfish crudo, prawns, barramundi, and some side dishes. Dessert was the loukoumades (yet they were basically donut balls (very heavy), not traditional loukoumades). Everything tasted fine but nothing was outstanding and it was not value for money.
Service was great at the beginning but staff were less attentive later on.
Will possibly try Yiasou George again but will definitely pick our own dishes.

It is the second time we have been to Yiasou George. This time, I introduced a Greek friend who also loved it. We had the baba ganoush, bread, potato gratin, shepherd's salad (all excellent) and the meat-eaters had the lamb, which they said was superb. The only dish we thought needed some work was the hommous, which was bland and of an odd texture. The restaurant was a little loud, quieter music would suit the space better - otherwise, it was beautifully decorated and a great ambience. Overall an excellent night!

Yiasou George exceeded our expectations. Food was of the highest quality. It was fresh, contemporary and delightful as was the service. The restaurant was spacious and the visual time line that was underneath the ceiling was well thought out and very creative. Looking forward to our next visit.

Loved this restaurant. The food was just that bit different and very delicious. Staff were great at helping us choose dishes. It was quiet although not a great number of diners on the night we went so not sure of the noise level if it is at capacity. I would definitely recommend this restaurant and intend to go there again soon.

Food as prepared & presented was okay - nothing to really get excited about or make me want to desperately go back! I felt the service was adequate but could be improved along with the air conditioning of the place - not very comfortable given that it had been an extremely hot day but this should not be used as an excuse to my way of thinking! The wine list is very poor. Also for not a very big establishment it did get very loud. Unfortunately unless things improve reasonably quickly I can’t see the business succeeding- like the many previous ventures that have come & gone in quick succession!

We enjoyed sitting outside despite it being quite cool but the friendly and helpful was able to light the heater for us. The main restaurant was very busy which of course meant it was quite noisy so the outside table was perfect for us baby boomers hard of hearing!
Good food, great service and overall a very pleasant evening.
