    Thank you for one of the best days of my life

    We had about only half a year of planning. It was pretty terrifying making sure everything was going to go smoothly. Chris helped us keep on top of things and was very patient with our constant changes in planning. When the day came and we were so nervous about everything and not really knowing what to do, everyone at George was there to give any support we needed from the time our ceremony started to the time the reception ended. Everyone loved the food, the service, and the ambience. Would love to have another event at George again but in the meantime, we'll enjoy having no more large planning for a while hahaha. Thank you everyone from George and thank you Chris for a wonderful wedding.

    Hi Robby,

    Thank you for your review. It was such an honor to assist you and Cynthia throughout this year of planning! It couldn't have been a more beautiful day for your ceremony on the courtyard. It was so great to see your friends and family celebrate your marriage from beginning to end.

    Wishing you both all the best and we look forward to seeing you back at GEORGE one day soon!

    Warm wishes,
    Chris

    Our Wedding at George - Perfect

    My wife Shelly dined at George one time 2 years before we got married. She raved about the food and the experience. She looked out the window and saw the courtyard, it just caught her eye. When we started to look at venues, George was the first that came to mind. When we sent an email inquiry, Chris got back to us and provided lots of details. When we met her in person, she was very friendly and helpful, giving us a run-down of what a wedding at George would look like, and showed us the beautiful space. We knew it would be a wonderful setting for our wedding. Chris is amazing and helped us tremendously throughout the entire process; from locking in the date, to keeping in touch in the months in-between, to filling out our event orders closer to our big day. I remember enjoying every time I walked through those doors to the restaurant or the Verity club, either to meet with Chris or to have our menu tasting. Chris the sommelier is awesome, he really took care of us during the menu tasting and our wedding night. I want to sincerely say thanks to Chris, Chris, and the rest of the staff.
    Now let's talk about the food. One of the first things Chris told us was chef Lorenzo is incredible, and we agree profoundly. Our menu had items like lobster with brulee avocado, Wagyu beef, rack of lamb, halibut with sake miso and cauliflower. They were all so mouthwatering good! We had an intimate wedding with our closest friends and family, and the consensus was they were very happy that night. I bet the food was a huge contributor.
    A few months have passed since that night at George, but I still remember it fondly. We recently got our wedding photos and flipping through them let us re-live the day. It rained, so we didn't have the ceremony in the courtyard. But the Grand Georgian room was just as beautiful, plus it kept our loved ones warm and dry. Looking at the photos of the restaurant, the food and drinks, the live performance by our lovely band (the SteelRiver Duo), and the joy; it was perfect.

    Couldn't have requested better.

    We've had good service before from other venues, but nothing nearly comparable to the service, quality and attention we've received from George Restaurant. The experience was so good I felt compelled to leave my reviews ( and I never leave reviews).
    On behalf of my Wife and I, George Restaurant deserves the highest accolades they could received from all aspects of the hospitality industry.

    Thank you to the staff and to Chris ( the event planner) for simplifying our lives that day.

    Hi Jean-Pierre,

    Thank you so much for taking the time to leave us a review and for your kind words! It was a pleasure assisting you and Teresa plan towards your special day. It was even better to witness you and your family celebrate this wonderful occasion!

    On behalf of the GEORGE team, congratulations to you both and we look forward to seeing you again soon!

    Warm wishes,
    Chris Corpuz
