Went there with a friend on Sunday morning. Very nice selection of food, very well prepared, beautiful atmosphere. So many restaurants in Atlanta have only very high calorie, high-cholesterol, items on their menu, and this one has them, too, but it also has other selections,...which was necessary due to dietary restrictions of my friend. Our server, Brian, was beyond superb. Extremely friendly and personable, just the right amount of attention — missed nothing but without being even the slightest bit intrusive. I thanked the food and beverage manager, Jonathan, for Brian’s great service, and he was also extremely friendly and helpful. Will definitely go back.More

Wow. Totally shocking that this restaurant is rated so highly. We had a lovely waitress, Jenny, and that was the only positive of the meal. The sole and spinach were so salty, I couldn’t eat them. My husband’s ‘filet’ was very fatty. The carrots were...very pretty but cooked to mush. We are from the Indianapolis area and have the option of excellent food in our little burb of Zionsville every night. We expected so much more of Atlanta and By George.More

We had an amazing dinner at The George restaurant, inside The Candler Hotel. The crab stuffed flounder was delicious but the highlight were the absolute perfect dirty martinis with blue cheese stuffed olives that bartender Radcliffe crafted! As martini connoisseurs, we have to say that...Radcliffe made the best extra dirty, extra dry martinis that we have ever had in a restaurant or bar setting! Ask for Radcliffe - great bartender, great attentive service!More

By George, a restaurant named after the building architects, sits in the Candler Hotel, an iconic building on Peachtree in Downtown Atlanta. I stayed in the hotel so trying the restaurant is a must. The Candler building was built by Asa Candler, the Coca Cola...founder. DCandler commissioned two architects, George Stewart and George E. Murphy to design the building. Both George. The ambience is beaux arts with tall marble pillars and crystal chandeliers. Everything is accented in gold. The food is contemporary American. I enjoyed the arugula salad with salmon. It was delicious. A perfect lunch. I also had the Asa old fashioned and the cheese plate later on the day. This spot boasts an extensive wine list and both a specialty cocktail and traditional cocktail list. Service was all fantastic.More

JP is very attentive, professional, and extelremly knowledgeable about the history of this location. JP turned what I was expecting to be a...basic evening into a "whole experience".

Excellent, and elegant, downtown Atlanta restaurant. Beautiful historic building, and location, with incredible, street-level, downtown views. The menu was broad but still focused. The preparations were updated, but classic. The food was perfectly prepared and the wait staff, James, was perfectly timed - on it...but not hovering - really just about perfect. Also... the wine selection was the exact same description and was very, very, well priced. Absolutely recommend the By George.More

They have standard "bread free" breakfast fare such as eggs, bacon and hashbrowns. I'm not sure if they have a dedicated gluten free prep or cook area.
