Lonely Planet review
An anomaly downtown, George's has the casual, inviting vibe of a small, moderately priced neighborhood restaurant. The menu focuses on sustainably harvested seafood, with nods to the Mediterranean – standouts include polenta-crusted calamari, deliciously simple sauteed trout, Dungeness crab rolls (in season) at lunch and house-made pastas at dinner, including feather-light gnocchi. Reservations advised. Afternoons, there's a limited menu.
