The Georgian Ratings and Reviews
There is no place to come for Tea than the Fairmont Seattle: fabulous chef accomodates special dietary needs with flare; attentive wait staff (especially Raju); gorgeous ambiance. Just finished my birthday celebration and I am coming back for Mother's Day. :)
Mixed feeling about this place.
We were running 15min late so called 40min ahead of reservation time to let them know and they were very nice about postponing our reservation by 15min.
But when we got there no one was at the front. We waited 5+ minutes for someone to show up. By the time a line of people formed behind us. 2 other groups were behind us.
When someone arrives she told us to wait.
Then she escorted the group behind us. Then returned and escorted the group behind them also. Then she came back and told us a server will escort us to our table. It was awkward to stand and wait for such a long time.
We order 2 main dishes. One was good the other was below mediocre.
Ok in average but will not return. Nothing special.
Had a nice women's day here. Took daughter to her 1st time at the spa downstairs then here for her 1st high tea. I wanted the Black Box special of the day (crab cakes) or the Grilled Beecher's Cheese with Avocado & she wanted to try the tea. Afternoon Tea is a good price for kids 12 & under: only $18 - you get the same fruit, blueberry scones, and desserts as adults, only the teas and sandwiches are different (for kids you get all 3: turkey & cheese triangle, ham & cheese triangle, & PB&J banana plus a choice of 3 kid-friendly teas or hot cocoa). She said meat sandwiches tasted ok, heavy on the mayo, would be better with cream cheese instead; she really liked everything else, the fruit in Martini glass, the scones, desserts & teapot. Note: be prepared for a staff person to call you to confirm; one called me that morning to ask if we wanted lunch or tea. We couldn't decide as I was rushing out the door & daughter wanted to see kids menus (which aren't online), so I said one of us will probably get the tea, not sure yet. Staffer said they needed to know because they like to have the tea ready. When we ordered, the staff seemed perturbed that daughter was the one getting the tea & not me as they had to switch the place settings, yet we were still missing a napkin. Daughter also noticed that the staff took & hung the coats of the other patrons, but not ours, and we were more dressed up than them. We overlooked all of that because the setting is so quiet, elegant, and historic. We could have a good conversation as there's a lot of space; it's NOT like these new hipster places where the next table touches yours! It's the only real place downtown where you can still order Afternoon Tea; a much classier place than the Queen Mary Tea Room in Ravenna, which is more kitschy. We plan to return to The Georgian with friends who like high tea now that we know the drill.
Took my friend here for a girls day brunch to celebrate her birthday. She loved it. The Georgian is architecturally so beautiful and elegant. The food was a little over priced but decent. Portion sizes are small. I loved that there was a decent space between each table so we could chat without being too noisy to our table neighbors. Overall great experience and I will definitely be back. Would love to go for afternoon tea!
Very beautiful! Wish the servers had been a little more attentive to us. Moments when we didn't see them or hear from them for half hours at a time. We were not offered coffee, had to ask for it mid lunch. Over all very happy though, brunch here is a family tradition and it held up to it's memory's. Everything was very beautiful and clean!
Had wonderful service for special afternoon tea with my mom. Attentive servers, tea and food were fabulous. My mom uses a walker and Andrew, the security officer, was very helpful in finding a more accommodating path than the stairs. We went on a weekday at 11:30 so it was quiet and we were able to visit and enjoy time spent in a beautiful 90+ year old hotel! Big thanks to the Georgian staff!
A group of women friends have been going to the Georgian for years before our season ticket matinees at a nearby theater. We knew what to expect and the food has always been wonderful and dependable. The service is almost always outstanding. Yesterday we got a little surprise. The menu has changed and the usual pre-meal platter of "goodies" which were on-site baked breads, and olive tapenade and parmesan crisps were not longer in evidence but gave way to a plate of sourdough bread and butter. Good but the same as you would expect at any decent restaurant. When we asked about a certain salad that some of us liked, the waitress said it was no longer on the menu (obviously) but since it was on the room service menu (the Georgian is in the Fairmont Olympic Hotel) she would have the kitchen prepare it for us. When I asked the price she did not know but we all ordered it and it was pretty good. When the bill came we found that the salad was about $3 more than previously but was not entirely unexpected. The changed menu make us consider alternate choice for our next matinee. Also, they no longer serve dinner there, just so you know.
I have eaten in the Georgian Room at least 4 times before this last visit . This time was not up to the usual experience . Miss the old bread tray , service was not up to par and the menu seemed different . The food arrived on dishes that were more for a casual dining restaurant . We were a party of 4 , with one of the ladies there for the first time. She thought the room was beautiful but was not impressed with the food or service . I personally was disappointed .
I made reservations here for my birthday and they didn't acknowledge the occasion even though someone called the day before asking if there were any other occasions we were celebrating. We had to ask for more hot water, the jam and cream were sub par. I've been to afternoon tea many times and I've come here before as well. The portions are itty bitty with no refills. The scones are not even the size of a triscuit and we all left there feeling hungry. No refills on tea either and the service was sub par. Take your money elsewhere.
We appreciated that they took care of us. I was there to take my wife for our anniversary brunch. Staff was very kind, they saw to our needs very promptly. Very professional. Recommended already to my friends.
Price was fine for afternoon tea, nothing I haven't seen before. The menu for the afternoon tea was good, lots of variety.
Lunch dish we had was that days scallops dish. It was rich with flavor, very enjoyable before afternoon tea.
Finally they surprised us with a little treat at the end with a happy anniversary chocolate covered strawberries.
Thanks to everyone there for the good
Service was extremely slow. We let them know upon arrival that we had a hard stop after one hour and we ended up having to box up lunch. Food was mediocre. No mention of there being pears in the Asian chicken salad (which did not work as they were soft and mushy).
I took my granddaughter and her good friend there last Monday, 9/26/2016, for her 10th. Birthday. The room is magnificent and ambience wonderful. The girls had wide eyes when they entered the room all dressed up as "little ladies" and I must say they were on their best behavior. The service was quite slow, but they were very pleasant when they finally did attend to us. Unfortunately the "kids menu" was pretty basic and bland as far as the sandwiches go so I asked if they could order off th adult menu. That is what took so long....for them to finally decide that would be o.k. and they were able to have the adult menu sandwiches. I happen to be dining with very sophisticated pallets; neither girl liked or wanted peanut butter and jelly and one was strict vegetarian so the other options were not viable. Luckily it all worked out in the end and they did their best to accommodate us. I would recommend a change to the "kids menu" as far as sandwiches. They were pretty boring choices and not at all what they are use to having at their homes. I'm quite sure there are a lot more kids out there similar to them. All in all it was a lovely experience for them and that was what it was all about. I found it to be quite pricey, but was also prepared for that. Sometimes the experience is worth the cost and that is why I chose to celebrate Simone's 10th. Birthday in the Georgian Room. Hopefully it will be a memory she carries with her the rest of her life. Thank you for a very wonderful afternoon spent at a gorgeous historic landmark. Sincerely, Nancy C
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.
