we were staying at the Fairmont for 3 nights and ate brekfast all 3 days in the Georgian. Such a beautiful room! It is a real pleasure to be in this building and my favourite room is the Georgian.
Brekfast time was very busy, so I'm really glad I had made reseervations all 3 days.

Service slow. Servers not attentive. Not many people for Friday afternoon high tea and some very casually dressed. Dirty plates in corner dinning room not cleared out.
Beautiful environment, tasty tea, and nice food, but significantly overpriced for the very small portion sizes, slow service and lack of ambiance.

The Georgian has always been a wonderful place to dine....however, disappointed in their current lunch menu, with hamburgers, grilled cheese sandwich to name a few items on the news menu.....can't imagine why anyone would go to the elegant Georgian Room expecting those choices!!

Brunch at the Georgian was great!
The buffet offers a huge variety and high quality food.
Staff was diligent, right up until it was time for my to pay, where they took way too long to pick up the checkbook with my card in it (very obviously poking out). It actually required us to notify another waiter for our waitress to finally come pick it up.
Otherwise, the venue is great and beautiful.
Expensive for ordinary breakfasts
Had 3 breakfasts in the restaurant because I was staying in the hotel for a conference. The breakfasts (both hot and cold) were good but way overpriced. $6 for a cup of coffee? I won't eat there again - certainly not my cup of tea.
Bad communication breakdown in staff?
Disappointing that I had called in to double check a birthday surprise would be taken care off. After confirming this the morning of the occasion, I'm extremely shocked no surprises for the birthday girl came at the end (again, after confirming it would be done on the phone). Waitress we had was also not as intuitive of a waitress one would expect at a restaurant in a Fairmont Hotel. Something like hot water refill for afternoon high tea should be, again, intuitive and not something that should be asked for. Half finished dishes shouldn't be taken away without confirming, either. I've also emailed customer service after this experience last weekend, and I haven't heard anything back. Funny, really. I'm comparing this experience to the Fairmont in Hong Kong and embarrassing to say my home city of Seattle faired poorly in comparison.
Overpriced for mediocre food
So to start with the only plus - the service was outstanding - very friendly and attentive without being overly intrusive. Unfortunately though the food was horrifically overpriced, especially for what was mediocre quality. Who charges $5 for a coke?! I had made a reservation based off their advertised Seattle Restaurant Week menu only to arrive and discover it had changed. As nothing on the revised Seattle Restaurant Week menu appealed to me, I ordered the Walla Walla onion soup and Caesar salad off the regular menu. Both were overpriced for the quality and size. The soup was a little bit bland and was quite small in portion. The Caesar salad was ok, but had an especially strong fish flavor. Won't be returning, but from the looks of their empty dining room at the peak of lunchtime, it looks like many restaurant goers aren't returning.
As a side note, I was terribly amused to get an email ahead of time with their cancellation policy. So while they can change the advertised Seattle Restaurant Week menu at any time without notice, restaurant goers who cancel within 24 hours notice are charged $25-$50. 1) Sounds hypocritical 2) How do they think they can charge you without any customer details and 3) The restaurant was empty and mediocre food, so it seems rather pretentious to put on such unsubstantiated airs.
I remember the Georgian Room - a sad slide.
It's like an old ladies retirement home now. I took my 20-something niece for lunch and was embarrassed by how stodgy it seems. Confusingly, the Restaurant Week menu seemed pricier than the actual lunch menu. Huh? We had some gluey clam chowder and an enormous chicken Caesar, which I brought home only to discover most of the lettuce was older than the ladies who were lunching at the Fairmont Mausoleum. Ghastly!
I love the Georgian Room. We have always had fabulous meals there, but it was not up to parr at our last visit. My husband, daughter and I had lunch here during Restaurant Week. The room is still lovely, the waiter was formal, but not very attentive. The prix fix lunch for RW was nothing special: my husband had tomato and chicken with noodles (their label). Nothing on the regular menu or on the pix fix menu excited me so I had the Express Lunch special off the regular menu (curried turkey sandwich, potato leek soup, salad and rice pudding). It was about the same price and with more variety than my husbands choice. Still, the soup was lukewarm and the bread on the sandwich was crusty like the sandwich had been made too early and left out. Both were tasty; just not up to standard. The rice pudding in was delicious. My daughter chose the steamed mahi mahi which she found bland. The plating was creative and lovely. Everyone is entitled to one bad day. I will likely be back and give them another chance.
Lovely indulgent, classy experience
My daughter (23) and I thoroughly enjoyed our experience celebrating her birthday (which we completely forgot to mention). The food is good- you go for the indulgent, old world experience. Great service, feels special and classy. We joked that in a movie it would be the perfect backdrop to introduce a new fiancee to the parents- luxurious and special, but a tiny bit intimidating for the new-family-member-to-be. When we were there, there were at least 3 groups of young women who appeared to be celebrating weddings or babies.... its that kind of place. I'd not choose it for a date with my husband though....

I had taken a dear friend here to celebrate her 30th birthday. Having been to many afternoon teas around the world and she having just returned from her honeymoon with afternoon tea at The Empress in Victoria, BC we were both very excited to share the experience together. The tea was immediately served without being seaped and in strainers that allowed the loose tea leaves to fall into the tea cup. Upon asking the waiter if this is how they traditionally serve the tea, he said yes. He did, however, get us another strainer that was much better. We asked for fresh tea cups, which surprised him. After this, we quite enjoyed ourselves, until someone brought their screaming baby into the room that was seated next to us. The food was quite delicious. I'm supposed to take another friend there to celebrate her 50th this week, but am having hesitation, due to the tea strainer experience. Otherwise, the setting is lovely.

It was - as always - great experience: Quiet elegance w wonderful servers in a fine setting!
We never feel rushed & enjoy watching children being introduced to High Tea by their parent(s).
It's the best lunch spot in town with a locally sourced menu (small plates & full menu) w most reasonable prices
Georgian 's service has gone down the drain.
I have been here few times, in the past the food was always great for dinner. Lunch was always soso. This time, I booked for a lunch/hi tea. hi tea is on the expensive side given how dry the pastries are, tea was ok. I had a scallop risotto for lunch, scallops are dry. However, the worst part is the customer service. The hostess , waiter are both not treating customers right.
If you go, go for dinner
First time I went to Georgian was for dinner and it was absolutely amazing! The ambience, the food, the service! Decided to come back for brunch on Valentine's Day and wasn't too impressed. I mean the ambience and service was still there but the food wasn't amazing. After having dinner there I was expecting the same fancy plating and presentation but it wasn't there. And the food tasted good but not something I'd specifically come back for.
Lovely ambience; underwhelmed by tea snacks
I love the elegant Georgian room. We sat at one of the love seats with a table and it was very comfortable. Service was great. Loved that we could each choose our own tea and that teas are loose leaf. I think 1/2 and 1/2 should be in the creamers; not milk. I did get 1/2 and 1/2 to use.
The edible treats were underwhelming. Martini glass with fruit was good. Scones were very good; it was the savory snacks that were not as strong. The smoked salmon bit was lovely. The duck egg deviled egg in a pumpernickle pressed bread roll - not as strong and the round item with a lavender flower "frosting,' was not great. The last two tasted as if they'd been prepared hours or days ago, and refridgerated. The chocolate frosted cake cube was good- simply small, and the vanilla/lemon mousse was yummy.
I think with some improvements in the savory tea treats, the tea would be perfect and a stronger value.
Horrible fallow up!
The only reason I'm giving it a low rating is because of their horrible customer service. I had made the reservation a month before for English tea with my five year old daughter as it is our new years tradition. It's been our first time celebrating the news years at home (Seattle) and wanted to treat out daughter to the Fairmont for tea. She was very excited and had had a countdown for a month to dine there. To our disgrace we arrive and the hostess tells us that we have a reservation for English tea but since there's a new years eve party later that day that they didn't want to have the whole menu, which included our tea service. My daughter was in tears and I was furious no one called us to inform us of such thing.
We ended up dining there. The food was good and our server was very friendly but the damage was done.
Gorgeous, timeless, significant
The Georgian is the a piece of Seattle history that will be missed greatly as the dinner service has concluded as of Dec. 31, 2015. The ambiance & service was impeccable as well as high quality dishes prepared meticulously in detail.
A disappointing farewell
The Georgian Room is closing soon, and it seems like it's time. We went there to say goodbye to that lovely space in which we've had so many nice meals. The service was terrible, the food was OK, and the room itself has become very shabby. Especially the carpet. We took people from out of town for the event and it was almost embarrassing.
All the Right Notes
Each time I visit the Georgian Room I promise myself I'll go back soon, but for some reason never seem to. On my last visit with my mother and sister, the experience surpassed our expectations. Everything was perfect if that is possible. The room, as always, puts on a show through its sheer elegance. The service was quiet, gracious, and efficient. All I could ask for. The star of the evening, however, was the food, wine, and drinks. Wonderful. I started with the French onion soup and had the rack of lamb as my main course. Both perfect. I have once again promised myself I will go back again soon, and this time I intend to.
