Kitchen on George Ratings and Reviews
The new chef is offering a menu that seems heavy for a very hot August night in Mobile, with lamb, duck, beef, hot soup as well as an expensive complicated sounding fish special and happily the shrimp and grits are still there. There is no salmon sadly. One server had every table so everything was slow and a special request was denied. We hope it gets back to the way we remembered, and soon.
I have never had less than a stellar experience at Kitchen on George. This past Tuesday was no exception. Our server was very descriptive of the options, attentive, but not hovering. Excellent meal and a fine, but not stuffy, environment. It is so pleasant to enjoy such wonderful cuisine in the heart of the Oakleigh Historic District, in our beautiful Mobile, Alabama.
Have patronized Kitchen since it opened. The past two visits to Kitchen were disappointing. This past week I was five minutes late on the reservation, and I received a call from the hostess as I was walking through the door. This was slightly irritating.
Quality and quantity of food is down from prior experiences.
I ordered a Manhattan and the glass was only half full.
Overall experience -- Blah. It will be a awhile before you see me again.
The restaurant is quaint, sent in they renovated older house in an older district of downtown Mobile. This makes for a very interesting and unique ambience, but also can be quite noisy and not necessarily a great place for a quiet dinner. The kitchen, staffed with students from a local culinary Institute, produced food was exceptional taste and quality, however the salad that my wife ordered and the sandwich that I ordered for both overdressed reading it to become soggy before it could be eaten. On another note, our waiter was very attentive, but seemed overstretched by the volume of customers he was waiting on.
Overall I found the eating experience to be very pleasant and would return to this establishment again. It offers and exceptional environment and great opportunity for gatherings.
Kitchen on George is a nice neighborhood place with a cosy feel , usually too cold temperature wise, the food is fantastic yet the service lacks the quality the food makes up for, empty dishes usually are not removed before full plates are delivered, creating chaos on a very small table, often waiters are addressing you standing with their hands in their pockets or leaning on the empty table next to you, servers give me the same feel that retail employees give addressing you when you enter their store because it is part of their law and empty words...
This is a restaurant which includes culinary students under the head chef and we loved it. It was just my mom and I for a nice, casual dinner and it was perfect. The food was delicious with creative presentation, great local fare. Next time in Mobile i'll be back.
Dinner was delicious. The mushroom soup, Caesar salad, and fried okra were excellent. The lamb, duck, and tenderloin entrees were a hit. Two tenderloins were rare, not medium, but so tasty that we kept them as they were. Desserts were very good, too, especially the orange cheesecake. The only fail was the West Indies salad; it was not marinated. Good service, and atmosphere. A Mobile must.
I have always LOVED going to Kitchen on George. But this past Sunday's brunch was not like it used to be. It is now a buffet that is WAY OVERPRICED. We had to ask for everything at least one time after ordering (bloody mary, more coffee, etc.) I will say the omelet was good - i was glad to be able to order something that wasn't on the buffet. But this shouldn't have cost more than $12-15. It was $30 and very disappointing. Also, my friend and I were lingering for a bit, thinking that KOG is open until 3 pm like the sign says at the door, but one of the servers told us they close at 2 pm. So we felt like we were being kicked out. I really hate to leave this negative review because I have been a BIG FAN of KOG for years. But the buffet really brings what I considered an "upscale" restaurant into an everyday "get this anywhere on I-10" level. I will not return on Sunday. I MIGHT will still give them a try during week but only after I've talked around to be sure the weekdays are as good as in the past. So sorry, ya'll. But you asked for a review. I can't give a positive one this time.
Celebrated my birthday in Alabama. First time here and heard a lot of great reviews so I was eager to try. Amazing food!! I highly recommend this place because they care about you. From farm to table meals to awesome hospitality. I would definitely be back on my next visit. Thank you!
We had a great time! The brunch was worth every penny. Very kind and friendly staff. Abby was very attentive to our table. Great food selection for brunch. Bread pudding and Bloody Mary sealed the meal! We will return. The omelettes cooked to order and they looked great although we did not order one because there was more than enough food to choose from the buffet.
We had stopped at this restaurant on our way from Houston to Florida at the beginning of June. It was delicious and everyone was very friendly. So, when our 23 yr old daughter decided to ride back with us to Houston, We knew we had to stop again so she could enjoy the dinner as well. It was equally as wonderful... The staff seem to enjoy their jobs
It was good, however the portion sizes are small and expensive. Would like to see a little bit more food on the plate. It was very yummy! However maybe I'm just being greedy! Not an everyday restaurant due to the price. Strictly a special occasion dining venue.
We went for Father's Day brunch. Food was very good and fresh, and staff was very good at keeping the buffet well stocked. Service could have been better. Once we mentioned that we hoped to enjoy a leisurely brunch, the server stopped rushing us to order the make your own omelette which was part of the brunch ( the first 15 minutes felt like the server wanted us to hurry up and eat, despite many empty tables - we stayed a total of 90 minutes). The server seemed unaware of things such as refilling empty coffee cups, and we had to ask for more coffee several times. We plan to try again for dinner and hope service is better the second time around.
We had never been to the area so this was a first. A friend sent us a gift card to the restaurant because he knew we were foodies. What a wonderful place as the menu and then the food are the best. We tried the 5 item tasting and were treated to some of the best food in a very long time. Wine and beer menu was designed to fit the food selections. All I can finish with is that you need to try it! You will not be disappointed. We will be back!
I went to this restaurant with 3 business associates based upon a local recommendation. The restaurant is located in a neighborhood zoned area with street parking.
I ordered the crab and corn soup and beef tenderloin. The soup was a thick creamy (very rich) soup that was quite tasty. Three of us ordered the beef tenderloin. A 6 oz piece of meat that was perfect size after finishing that very filling soup. The beef was cooked to what I asked for and was excellent.
The entree menu is a bit limited. The catch of the day was an anchor fish which was described as more of a meaty steak than a light fish so I passed on that.
I found this place online while looking up good places to eat while visiting Mobile AL. I am very pleased with the decision to dine here. We liked the location, the ambiance and the quality of food was exceptional! The shared menu dishes were larger than other farm to restaurants I have been to (positive.)
Lastly, our waiter Duskin was patient and kind. We will visit King on George again. I have already recommended this place to people I met along my weekend visit here!
The fried okra was in a heavier batter than previous visits which was okay. The duck spring rolls wrapper is too thick. The wrapper was soggy when it came out and got soggier by being placed in the sauce. The lighter skin wrapper would have stayed crispy. When we asked about specials the response was the amberjack was fod and "some sort of cheesy pasta" was the other special. The lamb was good, the amberjack pontchartrain was good. Risotto was advertised as local spring vegetables but had pickled carrots and some mushrooms. Nothing local about either item in our area this time of year. The addition of beurre Blanca and olive oil on the over cooked and gummy risotto was too oily and contributed nothing. The risotto had the texture of glue and the consistency of rice pudding. Was looking for some of the special food we see posted as we are frequent diners and like to see new things. Nothing like the food we see posted on Facebook page.
Kitchen on George is always excellent. We had not been there for over a month due to some medical issues for both of us. They have a new menu which was great. The mushroom soup was fabulous. My wife raved about the duck leg.
It took a little more time than usual in being our food. The server kept us informed all along and gave us free dessert because of the wait. The wait was not very long but she went well beyond to make sure we had a good evening.
We enjoyed the buffet style breakfast- however we witnessed at least four different families/customers leave once they found out it was a buffet. This is not well advertised on web page and the customers were confused that it was only buffet style! Other than that great service and the food was delicious!
Attended a work lunch here. Food was great but every member of our party was freezing! I noticed that the air was set on 68, colder than I think most diners would prefer. Had the flatbread with seasonal veggies and it was delicious. Would recommend but suggest bringing a jacket!
I hate to send a bad review, but my wife and I had one of the worst meals we have ever eaten. Service was good and pleasant. The table we were sitting at was to close to the next one. So, we could hear everything they were discussing. The food was awful. I had a Catfish that was over breaded and lacked a nice taste. My wife ordered a Flatbread that tasted like it contained all the left overs from other entree's. The sad thing is, this was not our first visit to the restaurant and it was always a excellent meal. This was not the case on this evening. $130.00 later and my wife left hungry. This is a restaurant that has a changing menu and that can make it interesting. This particular menu needs to be changed immediately! It will be a while before I ever consider going to it again.
