The Brasseries Georges has recently changed hands, although it's difficult to understand why it got into financial difficulties under its previous owners as it always seemed busy and was never cheap.
In any case, dinner on a Saturday night under the new ownership seemed little different from the old regime; the menu is largely unchanged and the service remains efficient and professional. this is not a place to go for cutting-edge cuisine, but for well-executed, simple satisfying fare, like sole or mussels, it's fine. The wine list now has a few rare bottles, like Léoville-Barton 2008, but at €280 the pricing is silly; they seem to have applied the same (stiff) multiplier to that as to the more ordinary wines. If it were half the price, they might actually sell some.
The interior lifts the experience above a mere meal out, it's a Parisian belle époque brasserie transplanted to a leafier corner of Brussels. This does mean however that the tables are quite cramped and the seats do not encourage lounging. It can also get very noisy but these aspects are inherent to the place.
