This was the second time I went to Tbilisi in the past few months. Each time the food has been excellent. On both occasions I tried all the main courses, (six altogether,) and would be happy to have devoured any of them.
I am not a fan of sweet red wine, which is apparently the Georgian speciality, and therefore endured rather than enjoyed the wine on my first visit. Tonight, however, we ordered the house red, (because I'm too mean to pay very much for unwelcome booze.) This was, however, pleasingly dry, and actually quite good.
The service is just how I like it: i.e. rather laid back. We did not feel breathed upon, and were in fact the last to leave; yet there was no pressure to do so. Thus I award it high marks, but others might prefer a more toadying service.
The food is very rich, (not for the aspiring size zero,) and very tasty. The decor would seem to invite smart rather than casual, although we were welcomed tonight in scruffy jeans with no eyebrows raised. If you wanted to pretend to be Eastern European Mafia, then this would be your restaurant of choice. Perhaps Roman Abramovich eats here when Chelsea play Arsenal, (it's a short walk from Emirates).
For those who are curious as to Georgian cuisine, and for those who appreciate mouth-watering slow cooked meat, give Tbilisi a try.
