Kitchen on George Ratings and Reviews
First time we have been for Sunday Brunch. It was so good. Most food on their regular menu was on the buffet so that was great. Gave us an opportunity to sample several different items.
(We also have had two bridal brunch's at Kitchen on George...it was great.
This is not a negative review. However, considering its' number 1 rating, I think I was expecting more. The food was very good, not exceptional. Service was very good, not exceptional. Ambiance was very good, and again, not exceptional. A definite top 5 but not sure on the number 1 rating.
Since opening, Kitchen on George lost their first creative chef who worked her magic on kitchen to table food. The restaurant seems to have also given up what was once one of the best happy hours over to Dauphin's. The new chef is also adding a tasting menu. As a Chicagoan who frequently visits this restaurant while in town, I am hoping the new chef keeps some of the amazing food created by the first chef and does not go too upscale with a tasting menu for a neighborhood gem restaurant.
I am a bit saddened to say this about one of my favorite places to dine in Mobile:
1. When I got the reservation confirmation call, the person on the line was most unhelpful in bending our reservation slightly (i.e. adding a child to our reservation).
2. After my visit to Kitchen on George, my credit card information was compromised and luckily my bank was quick enough to call me and block my card from being misused further. I am not certain that it happened at the restaurant, but my bank is doing a thorough investigation.
I am disappointed.
Fabulous dining experience! From start to finish we had the attention of our waitress. My Husbamd and I enjoyed our small plate meal and a couple of cocktails. Portions are large, so 3 plates would have been plenty for 2 people but we got 5: okra, duck confit spring rolls and the shrimp bruschetta were our favorites. The blackened ravioli was not blackened in our opinion and were so-so to us. The fried artichokes were ok but we were so full by that point that may have biased us. We cannot wait to go again. Cute restuarant on residential part of town. Loved it!
We love KOG for every kind of occasion. It's great to be able to walk to a nice restaurant too! Beautiful rooms and nice courtyard option. Servers are attentive and well-trained students at culinary college, as are the kitchen staff. It's a super idea. Menu favorites are retained and we like the use of local ingredients.
First time to dine here and were not disappointed! Great setting, excellent service and delicious food! Portions were very generous. We had small plates of oysters and of fried artichokes; goat cheese salad and entree of shrimp and sausage jambalaya! Everything tasted great! Finished with coffee and brownie with ice cream and caramel syrup!
The service was good but the food left a lot to be desired. I had the fish and grits. The grits were full of cream and goat cheese. Too much. There wasn't a grit consistency at all. The fish was really small and over salted. I kept hearing the kitchen discuss a salad that was extremely big and delicious but mine was very small and bland.
took a while getting our food due to a pipe that burst in the kitchen. We were told about it and Katherine and the manager apologized. Super nice people. Our desserts were free due to the wait and that was a nice gesture on their part. Will definitely go back because things happen sometimes and it wasn't their fault.
We went Valentine's Day. We had expected a limited menu but not this limited. My husband and I were very disappointed in the limited menu choices and the taste of the food. There was a choice of 2 soups to choose from, 3 entrees and 2 desserts. We both ordered different soups, entrees and desserts to try them all. Food was not what I had expected and we were very disappointed because it was very expensive for what we ordered. Will not be returning nor recommending.
The chef's employ the use of culinary school students and therefore there is a critical eye on all plates served and extra effort being used by those wanting to impress for a grade or future employment. The menu is small for lunch but has many tasty items listed. Our table ordered and enjoyed greatly the fried okra small plate as an appetizer. I would order that again. We ordered the goat cheese salad, the ceasar and the corn soup - all of which were very tasty, moderately priced and well received. For the main course, the small plates mean small plates to be cautious of that if you are a big eater. The crab cakes were awesome although tiny. The spring rolls very well presented and tasty although no filling. The BLT was the largest dish served and was very good. We also ordered the shrimp/grits and fish/grits which are worth a trip back on their own. We finished with warm cherry cheesecake and the bread pudding and those are worth a trip just to enjoy on their own. Overall a great dining experience.
Delicious and inspired food, warm and inviting atmosphere, personal and welcoming service. Kitchen on George was absolutely wonderful. The Caesar salad, for example, was laced with subtle smokiness from tender grilled kale. The blackened shrimp and grits was fabulous, with creamy cheese grits complemented by the subtly spicy yet tender gulf shrimp. The kitchen is staffed by culinary students under the careful tutelage of an outstanding chef, so while I was eating exquisite for I was also feeling like I was supporting education! What a great place, at an affordable price!
