The Georgian Ratings and Reviews

It's a fabulous place for either lunch or High Tea. The delicious food is always beautifully presented and the service is impeccable! A beautiful setting and small families here and there enjoying High Tea with their small children add to the delight.
It's the best place in Seattle to experience not only Old World charm but a refined and civilized setting all around.
Be sure to mentioned, lunch or High Tea when U book the table!

This restaurant is in the Fairmont Hotel in a lovely part of Seattle. We came for lunch, but my wife decided we wanted to partake in the Tea Service instead. I had already gotten a cup of tea before we decided this, and the staff followed their strict directions (I suppose) and brought me another pot of tea, which was cool, but then when I tasted the loose leaf Earl Grey, it was not nearly as good as the bagged Earl Grey??? The Tea service food was actually pretty good, all in all. Finally, our waiter was unintelligible, and it's not that he had an accent. He was really just not able to be understood because his English was that poor. I wouldn't go back to this place, but the food was good, it's just that the service was odd and uncomfortable. You get a mix of guests in sweatpants and people who are trying to make a nice event of it, and that clash lessens the enjoyability of it all.

After having High Tea in England we have been looking for a local haunt that would provide a similar experience. While it wasn't quite what was available in London, it was definitely a worth the reservation and visit. It was a quiet Saturday afternoon with only 5-6 tables so you could enjoy your conversation. Definitely recommend it if you have never had High Tea.

Our server was very clumsy and his accent was not clear at all. He wouldn't stand a full minute to explain details of the menu. Disappointed with the flexibility in accommodating children to a single savory/sweet tier option instead we were asked to purchase two and most of the food was wasted.

I decided to come to breakfast here alone on Friday morning. The restaurant is beautiful. It's definitely like walking back into the 1920s. I had two mimosa with the daily juice. I believe it was Apple Blueberry. It was refreshing and a nice change of pace. I had the avocado toastie. The toast was delicious, everything was very fresh and flavorful. The avocado was more like a guacamole which I enjoyed. The service was terrific. I was offered a newspaper when I arrived. All of the staff from the hostess to the waiter used my name which was charming. I was sat in a somewhat private area, but it was back towards the kitchen where I could here the manager speaking to the staff. This was slightly distracting but didn't ruin the meal. The entire meal took less than 30 minutes, which I appreciated very much since I was still working. I will definitely be returning. The experience was so delightful I will start staying at the Olympic instead of the Sheridan.

Three of us enjoyed afternoon tea at the Georgian on a Friday. The room is gorgeous in its old fashioned luxury with beautiful china and silver for the tea service. Each diner gets a pot of tea of their choice and a 3 tiered cake stand filled with scones, savory bites and dessert. The table is set with pretty matching cream and sugar bowl with cute silver tongs, tea strainer with holder, all the accoutrements that make afternoon tea an event. Everything was tasty, but our favorite is the pea mousse sandwiched by parmesan crisps. The chocolate caramel mousse, yuzu cake, and profiterole for dessert were delightful as well. The ambience is perfect for catching up with women friends. The only critique I have is the server seemed to rush us at the start when we wanted to talk and take our time to order.

We were greeted and quickly seated upon arrival. It was lovely and quiet on the first part of our meal. We were seated in a well lit booth and it was quiet and relaxing, something that I wished continued but about 30 minutes later, a larger party was seated next to us and they the noise level went up so I was not able to hear most of what my sister was saying--it felt like the table next to us was too close.
However, the experience was lovely. I'll definitely go back for high tea again or a fancy dinner--hopefully seated away from larger groups.

I tried to change reservation from 4 people to six and app indicated full, called them and got same response. There was only one other table occupied throughout the entire time we were their for lunch. Due to this I will choose a different restaurant for afternoon tea next time my son and family in town

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
