A word from George Restaurant
Executive Chef Loseto’s innovative "Toronto Cuisine" is devoted to seasonal, natural, local, and sustainable food from the city’s markets. “This means that the food is inspired not only by the seasons, but also the variety of products available from many different cultures around the world,” says Loseto. This principle of fresh and eclectic variety is brought to the tables of our patrons at George.

Guests are encouraged to order from a five, seven, or ten course tasting menu in order to fully explore the bold flavours and textures of Chef Loseto’s cooking. Wine pairings carefully selected by the sommelier team are a wonderful addition to the tasting experience. The wine program is focused on quality, sustainability and terroir. Wines are sourced from small suppliers with a focus on unique appellations and varietals. At the table, one of our five sommeliers will ensure selections are perfectly paired with the unique cuisine.

Diner Reviews
  • "We picked this as our special restaurant while visiting Toronto. While interesting, the decor was disappointing as we were expecting a more classical fine dining feel. The sommelier provided immediate and excellent service and we enjoyed talking wine with him. The waiter, however, was gone for long periods of time, made us feel less than welcome and when his turn came to pour wine, he showed he knew little about it (he poured way too high, almost to the middle of the glass). The sweetbreads were the highlight of the meal, while the halibut was also good. The meringue dessert was excellent. But the beef tenderloin was a big disappointment, being both tough and flavorless, although it was prepared medium rare."

  • "From the amuse bouche to the dessert everything was outstanding. Our waiter was knowledgeable and professional, the sommelier had great wine suggestions. Pleasant dining experience, will return when next in Toronto."

  • "We arrived at George restaurant expecting great things from family reviews, and George exceeded those reputations by a long way! Excellent 5 course meal and cocktail list, great way to spend an evening."
    Dined on 8/15/2014
  • "Excellent food and wine list. We did the 7 course tasting. It took a long time to get the first tasting, with the dinner lasting 3.5 hours! Waiter had asked us if it was a special occasion. We told him it was our anniversary. The desert plate had "Happy Anniversary" written in chocolate. Had a great romantic time."
    Dined on 8/15/2014
  • "We selected the Five Course Tasting Menu. Amazing service. Each plate was a visual, tantalizing, masterpiece. With exception to the incredibly delicious dessert, the actual dishes didn't taste that good, especially for fine dining. Somehow the flavours didn't work that well together. If there was a magical way to combine the flavours from North44 and the beauty of George's dishes and service we would certainly have the perfect restaurant."
    Dined on 8/15/2014
  • "The 5 course tasting menu completely exceeded our expectations. Between my wife and I we experienced 10 different dishes that were beyond Masterchef quality."
    Dined on 8/13/2014
  • "did the 10 course tasting with wine pairing. it was amazing. not our first time at george, but first time doing the tasting and first time on their patio (it's stunning!) and it was absolutely an ideal dining experience. even compared to other tasting menus we have done. the wine pairings were incredible. used to be turned off by price tag (of both, especially the wine pairing) but it is worth it through and through. they served different dishes for each of the 10 courses - so essentially 20 dishes, all amazing. Highly knowledgeable wait staff, perfectly attentive."
    Dined on 8/12/2014
  • "We had a wonderful George 5 course tasting menu and the 3 of us had 3 different plates each time. Our sommelier was very helpful in directing us with our wine choices. We were thrilled to try the Dillon's vodka. The service was impeccable and we're all coming back again."
    Dined on 8/12/2014
  • "My husband and I went last weekend to George and had their 7 course vegetarian dinner and were blown away. The chef did a great job catering to our dietary restrictions and added an extra touch to celebrate our first anniversary. Our service was outstanding and we will definitely back again to celebrate another special occasion!"

  • "We had a wonderful dinner outside on their patio. Service and food was exceptional. Would highly recommend!"
    Dined on 8/8/2014
  • "This was my third time at George and the quality has been remarkably consistent. Service is outstanding. Food is outstanding. The tasting menu would be the best way to experience this restaurant. We did not do the tasting menu this time and still had a wonderful time."

  • " For lunch had a crab dish to start that was very bland and the lobster first plate was allright, but I have come to expect better at this restaurant. Great patio on which to enjoy a glass of champagne"

  • "We had another wonderful meal at George. The tasting menu never disappoints. Absolutely delicious."
    Dined on 8/6/2014
  • "My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our recent dinner at George. Unfortunately, we weren't hungry enough for one of the tasting menus (which, from the reaction of the people at the table next to us, sounded fabulous). However, we ordered dishes from both the vegetarian and regular a la carte menus and everything was wonderful. The service was very good and attentive without being smothering (i.e. we weren't asked every five minutes if we were enjoying our meal). There was plenty of time to savour our meals without having to wait too long between courses. But be warned that it's not a restaurant for a quick bite."
    Dined on 8/5/2014
  • "Impossible to find fault. Every aspect of the dinner, the service and the ambience was superb."

  • "For our 25th wedding anniversary we enjoyed the seven course tasting menu, with accompanying wines. So delicious! The service was wonderful, the patio was lovely, and the evening was memorable."
    Dined on 8/2/2014
  • "We had an amazing 10 course tasting dinner and it was coupled with the appropriate level of service. Wine service brings the experience to a higher level. Sophisticated yet comfortable atmosphere. The chef and his team make the most delicious dishes that are flavorful concoctions that complemented the proteins so well. Well done and we will return!"
    Dined on 8/2/2014
  • "Not our first visit and the five course tasting did not disappoint. Notable was the delicate avocado brulee as a side to some of the most tender lamb chops I can recall tasting - DELICIOUS. Only drawback of the night was the slower than usual service (not the norm)."
    Dined on 8/1/2014
  • "Food here was excellent, weve had amazing duck breast and all plates were well thought of. Too bad the waiter was slow, sloppy and unfriendly. He did not deserve the 18% tip he got."
    Dined on 8/1/2014
  • "I enjoyed the George for lunch, with the lunch special: which you can have your choice of salad or daily soup special, plus your choice of the thirds plates for the main, for 30 CAN. I had the salad and scallops, a glass of wine and a coffee for around 50 CAN. The atmosphere is elegant and beautiful but probably better later for lunch of dinner (I was way to early). And April was a star server from her welcoming manner, gentle way and conversation, to her post lunch business support that I am so grateful for. The atmosphere is beautiful and calm. Very romantic garden terrace option."

  • "You can be guaranteed a perfect evening when you dine at George. From the moment you arrive, you are treated as though you are their special guest and waited upon as such all evening. The Sommalier is certain to help you choose a perfect wine for you and your guests. If you want to be adventurous - let him choose for you and expect to be truly amazed how well the wine will dance with your dinner. The food is delectable with every bite and most definitely a memorable experience. Be sure to try the chef's tasting menu to enjoy a mouth watering experience and a dazzling display on every plate. Wonderful."
    Dined on 7/30/2014
  • "This was our fourth time at George, and as always we loved it. The food and service were both amazing, and we enjoyed being able to talk to each other on a Saturday night without having to speak loudly as in so many other restaurants. This will continue to be our spot to celebrate special occasions. We both had the lobster appetizer, which was amazing, as was the beef tenderloin. The chocolate dessert was great too!"
    Dined on 7/26/2014
  • "First time a charm, glad to have discovered George restaurant."
    Dined on 7/25/2014
  • "We thoroughly enjoyed every part of our meal at George. Ask for the table by the kitchen - it's fun to see the inner workings of a professional kitchen. They have a particularly great sommelier - on spot pairings with each of my husband's courses."

  • "We went to the George for our anniversary. The food, atmosphere, service were excellent."
    Dined on 7/23/2014
  • "Returned to George for lunch this week - outdoors on the patio. Superb as usual. Food was excellent, as was the service. The quiet back patio tucked between heritage buildings is absolutely lovely!"
    Dined on 7/21/2014
  • "The chef is clearly creative but perhaps a bit to much so. I ordered the cornish hen and what was presented looked more like a custard flan, the meat was ground up and made into this little flan like item. My wife ordered the lobster and again while very tasty you wouldn't have guessed lobster if placed in front of you. Their deal is small plates that you share, everything tasted very good and the service was very nice. Each dish is appetizer size portions and they offer a tastings menu where they bring you either 5, 7 or 10 courses. Fun if you want to spend an entire evening dining but not really what we had in mind and quite pricey. If you do the full dining experience you could easily spend $200 per person."
    Dined on 7/19/2014
  • "Definitely let the chef surprise you with his creations - totally worth it!!!"
    Dined on 7/19/2014
  • "Had the 7-course tasting menu for two; very good in finding dishes that met my food restrictions, and presented some beautiful dishes that were as good as the "normal" ones. Beautiful table on the back patio, with water features to create a little white noise between tables."
    Dined on 7/18/2014
  • "Service was outstanding. Kudos to our server and the chefs."
    Dined on 7/17/2014
  • "We had a lovely "date night" at Georges. We enjoyed the 5 course dinner which was a feast for the tastebuds and the eyes. We also enjoyed the suspense of not knowing what dish would arrive next and every dish was different so hubby and i would share each others course so that we were able to taste 10 dishes in all. The waiter was a touch soft-spoken which made it hard to hear his descriptions of the food, but he was very attentive. Overall I would say the food is a touch overpriced, but the chef does have interesting and inventive ideas."
    Dined on 7/16/2014
  • "We tend to go to George for big occasions, anniversaries, birthdays, business celebrations - the only mistake with this is that we don't go to George often enough. If you are looking for perfect service, perfect food, impressive wine list, tasting menues that are best in town, served in a professional yet lovely room with a reasonable noise level that allows you to actually have a conversation - you can't do better. Loved it, again, we believe this is our 8th time at George and they are batting a perfect 1000 so far."
    Dined on 7/15/2014
  • "Do the 5 or 7 course meal. Let the chef show you what food artistry with the freshest ingredients and honest preparations is all about. Excellent wine list to go with the food. Get a vintage 2007 or earlier and be treated to best ever dining experience."
    Dined on 7/12/2014
  • "Me and hubby celebrated our 29th anniversary. It was wonderful and perfect to enjoy this special dinner with wine pairing at George. The food, ambiance, service was impeccable...outstanding!!"
