the food is amazing the serves is top notch. I enjoyed the service at this fine dining establishment this past weather and I thoroughly enjoyed my meal but although the place was not crowded once i was finished my meal I felt that I was rushed to vacate the table.
My husband and I went to GB to celebrate my birthday on Thursday evening. Although they offer valet parking we found a parking space right in front of the restaurant (it's free after 6:30 PM) which was great. The hostess wasn't friendly at all when we told her we have a reservation she seemed almost annoyed and took us to the corner of the restaurant which she admitted herself was very cold. When we asked her if we could sit on the other side (the restaurant was empty at that time) she said no because that server would be double-seated and walked us to another VERY secluded table located between 2 wine stations. It wasn't just claustrophobic it was also very distractive every time a server would come to get or bring back a bottle of wine.
Luckily, our server Lakeisha (I hope I spelled it right) was nice and very polite. She was also very knowledgeable and we almost didn’t need the menu. She made several great recommendations.
For appetizer we ordered chicken livers in pineapple sauce. It was delicious and big enough to share. My husband ordered rack of lamb which is served with grits and he loved it. It was tender, nicely arranged and the portion was generous. I ordered the fried chicken which was also very good. For desert we went with the bourbon pecan pie a la mode and it was delicious. My favorite was the peach iced tea. I definitely recommend the tea. It was the best tea I've ever had.
Overall, I liked it a lot and I will come back to GB but I will be careful what table I will be seated at.
Went this evening with my hubby. I am vegetarian and he is not. The Malbec was amazing and friend green tomato appetizer was worth it. Additionally, the corn bread was very buttery and sweet. I did the black eyed pea platter. The black eyed pea cakes were too salty. The mixed veggies they came with okay but not great. I also ordered sides of yams, pretty good but nothing I couldn't do at home!, and fingerling potatoes (dry, unseasoned, and not special at all!). The hubby ordered sticky chicken and gumbo. He said the gumbo was good and the chicken was good... but nothing he would come back for.
All in all, it was mediocre dinner. I tend to eat here about 1x per year. That's enough for me!
The peach cobbler and cheese cake taste like a product from a grocery store, and not from scratch or homemade. My jambalaya was luke warm, the crab was cold and the dish was served on a plate. The positive-- I loved the fried green tomatoes, corn bread sticks and organic grits. The waiteress and waiter who served us were friendly and courtesy. The host was not.
Although the Fried Green Tomatoes and Diver Sea Scallops were good, the Southern Fried Chicken with Mashed Potatoes, which should be a classic dish, was tasteless.
Boston Market does a better job with this dish!
Sweet Potato Cheesecake was tasteless as well.
No valet parking available at time the restaurant opened for dinner in an area where street parking is extremely limited.
My son and I ate at Georgia Brown's after visiting the museums in Washington. (He had already scouted the area and knew we would like both the food and the restaurant.) I have NO complaints. The food and service were great. The fried catfish and sweet peach tea confirmed they really were Southern! I wouldn't hesitate to go again, and, Lord willing, I will go again. For a Southern girl to find a Southern restaurant in Washington was more than I dreamed. It was my first time to eat soul food in such an upscale atmosphere, but the combination is a Winner! As an aside, we took our desserts--peach cobbler and pecan pie--and ate them at the White House--well, ok, in the park across from the White House!
