The only good thing about this place was the food. The service was very slow and muddled. The music was annoying and the noise was bordering on painful! Luckily we are only staying at the Georgian Court Hotel one night.

Hello, We're glad you enjoyed the food but we're sorry about the music coming from our Jazz Club next door interfering with you experience. We would be happy to accomodate you next time at a quieter area of the restaurant. Thank you

We were staying in the Georgian Court Hotel. We enjoyed both breakfast and dinner. We were so fortunate to get a superb waitress. She really enhanced our dining experience. The food is good and fairly priced.

Walking distance from our hotel, the food was really good and the staff excellent. It was a bit noisy on a busy night.

We ate in their jazz club. Although there were reservations for our table for the jazz concert, we were accommodated with a table. The food was excellent. Service, while fast, didn't make us feel rushed. I had the grilled chicken linguini and it was delicious....More

Good food, server was attentive and overall good experience; various entrees were ordered and food was tasty with sufficient portions, chicken Marsala, lasagna, pizza, beef dip and casarecce boscaila. We will return as it's very close to all venues, theatre sports etc.

Both had pastas and they were really tasty. Got bread with the meal which wasn't charged for which was a nice touch. Good service and the prices weren't bad for the type of place it was.

Extremely slow service despite only 5 tables occupied with mostly couples. Loud music coming from room behind bar that competed with music in restaurant. Server was cordial. Food was good, not life changing. Money better spent elsewhere. Not impressed.

We had read the poor reviews about rude, slow service but decided to try it anyway. We're glad we did. We were seated in about 10 minutes and were waited on as soon as we sat down. We started with salads, served within five minutes...More

We do have different genre of live jazz playing in the evenings. Some styles are for a listening audience and others lend itself for quiet conversations.
