Amazing, can't miss in TorontoMy girlfriend and I did the 10 course tasting, which takes about 4 hours but is totally worth it. The best part is each person gets a different dish for each course so we were able to try 10 different dishes. Everything for the most part was very good and a few of the courses were absolutely amazing, like the pork belly. Definitely worth the time and the money.6/14/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful experienceWe had a lovely lunch on the beautiful patio. Service was excellent. The food was amazing! Definitely worth going - especially for a special occasion!6/12/2013 12:00:00 AMRefreshingIt was my first time dining at George rest. I was delighted, the food was extremely good and the portions just right. Our waiter Philipe was très charmant, professional and very attentive. Loved it!6/12/2013 12:00:00 AMcomfortablePortions are manageable. Wine list good but not cheap. Food creative. A most comfortable place to have a fine dinner.6/11/2013 12:00:00 AM24th BirthdayWe celebrated my boyfriend's 24th birthday here at the George Restaurant and the service and food was exceptional. Our server was Phil and he was very friendly, polite and helpful from the moment we sat down until the time we left. Understanding that it was our first time dining at George, he took the time to walk us through the drinks menu as well as the food menu. We decided on the 5 course tasting and each dish was outstanding. The plating was beautiful and the portions were very generous. By the end of the night, we were full and satisfied (but not stuffed!).
This is definitely a place I would recommend for a romantic, special occassion! If you're looking for stellar food and service, this would be the place to go.6/8/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat ambience for an anniversaryMy wife and I had our 10th anniversary dinner at George. I made a reservation here for the tasting menu and the consistently good reviews of the restaurant online.
We had the 7 course tasting menu which we found to be more than enough food by the end of dinner. We didn't do the full wine pairing but instead opted to have the dinner paired with two recommended glasses of wine.
The place was quite busy for a Friday night. We were seated right away and the service overall was attentive and great. I would say the food was great but not outstanding. Don't get me wrong, I thought the overall experience was great and we really enjoyed the food. I suppose I was expecting to be really wowed for the amount of money spent on dinner.6/7/2013 12:00:00 AMTasting menu treat!Mary and I ordered the 5-course tasting menu (7 & 10 available) with wine parings and it was just the right amount of food, with the right pacing of dishes for a thoroughly enjoyable evening. The dishes were wonderful in their complexities and the sommelier gave a brief overview of each wine and why each was selected to be paired with each dish. We had expected to be experiencing the same dishes and wines to compare and discuss, but no two dishes or two wines were the same the entire evening - each of us had a completely unique experience! A big part of the thrill was not knowing what was coming next, as there was little/no intersection between the tasting dishes and the regular menu. A testament to the creativity of the kitchen!!6/6/2013 12:00:00 AMGeorge was a great find! WeGeorge was a great find! We ordered a seven course tasting menu and we got 14 different, sumptuous culinary delights. We had fun anticipating what our next course would be. The staff was excellent. Service was impeccable. We would definitely return and recommend this place to our friends.6/6/2013 12:00:00 AMOutstandingTwice I have dined at George (just over a year between visits) while in Toronto on business and twice I was delighted by the culinary delight of the seven-course tasting menu. Each dish and each component on each dish was executed with precision, creating a series of flavor combinations that lit up my palette. It's the kind of place where you want to try everything on the (pretty safe) bet that each thing you order is likely to be excellent and packed with flavor. Highly recommended.6/4/2013 12:00:00 AM5 Crse Tasting Menu w/ Wine Pairing5 course tasting menu with wine pairings. Imaginative and well prepared food with a focus on local and Canadian produced food. The sommelier did a tremendous job of selecting some unique and truly enjoyable wine for each course. Certainly a restaurant to keep on the list.6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMgreat for vegan dinerI am vegan, and my husband is not. Dining out can be tricky. Either we go to a regular omni restaurant, and I end up with
a veggie burger or salad, or we go to a veg restaurant, and my husband ends up eating something he is less than thrilled with. George has a great vegetarian menu, and they were very accommodating and able to make whatever I wanted vegan. It was so nice to have a selection to choose from, rather than just be stuck with one option. And my husband enjoyed what he said was one of the best omni meals he's had. Not being too familiar with wines, it was also very nice to have a Sommelier visit the table to give wine descriptions and recommendations.6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMAMAZING FOODDinner and wine list were amazing. Everything was wonderful. Definitely for special occasions since it is pricey and portions sizes are small. Lovely experience overall.5/24/2013 12:00:00 AMBest in TorontoWe ate a la carte (there are several tasting menus available), and every dish was delicious - carefully balanced flavours and just the right size. We will certainly be going back for a special occasion dinner - it was good value for the quality, but still expensive.5/23/2013 12:00:00 AMOutstanding food experience.Outstanding food experience. The food melted in your mouth and the presentation was beautiful. The service was always present but not overbearing5/23/2013 12:00:00 AMFantastic!I went to George to celebrate a friend's birthday and wanted a great food experience. Service was attentive and personalized, without being intrusive; staff were knowledgeable about the food and beverages and in doubt would seek the answer to our questions. We ordered the tasting menu paired with wines. Interestingly we each got different meals for form one another with every single course, making the experience even more unique. The wine pairings were exquisite. My only remark would be that I wished my glass got a little bit more wine with each course. I would recommend not saying no to the foie grass when offered, it was divine! I highly recommend this restaurant!5/22/2013 12:00:00 AMTasting menu paradiseWe were there for our anniversary and they made the occasion a memorable one. Both of us ordered the 7-course tasting menu with wine pairings. Each course had different dishes so that we could appreciate both dishes. The wine pairing were perfect and the staff took the time to explain the history for each one. They were perfectly paired in my opinion. I loved the sherry! We couldn't have picked a more perfect place and setting. The kitchen is open so one can view everything. Kudos to the chefs and staff for their delicious dishes and quick service. The restaurant is very well organized and efficient. It's not wheelchair friendly as you need to climb a few steps to get in but try are more than willing to help out.5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMA TASTY EXPERIENCEMy husband and I went to George for his 50th birthday! Having just returned from the Niagra Wine region, I wanted a place that did wine and food pairings. We both love fine food (call us foodies) and were not disappointed by the very delish combinations of food served and the wonderful wine choices that accompanied each course. The waiter and somalier were knowledgable and friendly. We had a wonderful evening and would recommend George to others!5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMReally spectacularAn exceptional dining experience, great food and great service.5/17/2013 12:00:00 AMGreatThe resteraunt was great the food was absolutely unbelievable. The service was way above what is expected. Would recommend this to anyone who love amazing food and great atmosphere.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMBeautiful evening at GeorgeWe've been to George before, and this time again everything was perfect. Our waiter Phil was extremely knowledgeable and patient as well as efficient, and the service was perfect. My girlfriend started with the Dungeness Crab and I had the house salad, and then I had the black cod for the second course, followed by the bison for me and the wild salmon for my girlfriend. For dessert we shared the Coconut Banana Tart. We tried several of the wines by the glass (3 oz), and they were great as well. Can't wait to go back!5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMClientWe had an outstanding lunch, the service was great and the food was excellent. I love the decour.

The 7-course tasting menu with wine pairings were amazing - every bite was exquisite. The restaurant itself was lovely and had a romantic atmosphere but was not pretentious at all.
For a wonderful (but not inexpensive) meal of highest quality, choose George! I would recommend it to all my friends and we will certainly be back.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMWe were a group of "olderWe were a group of "older women" - friends from high school - out for dinner to "catch up". We were seated in a nice quieter part of the restaurant at a great round table. Our waiter was very attentive without being intrusive and even brought us a complimentary plate of cookies at the end of the meal. The food was delicious and although the restaurant was busy (Friday night), it was quiet enough that we could talk (and hear each other) very easily. Would definitely go back!5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMSpecial Occasion Favourite!George never fails to delight, from the great service and amazing food. The dishes look like a work of art and taste incredible.5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMAbove Expectations!After reading multiple reviews, I expected great food and great services. However, I wasn't prepared for the level of excellence demonstrated in both regards. The food was incredible and the service was amazing. Overall, I'd recommend George Restaurant for those celebrating an occasion, willing to dish out a few hundred dollars for a night you won't soon forget!5/2/2013 12:00:00 AMFit for Vegetarians tooMost high end restaurant has hardly any vegetarian options while George has separate menu for vegetarian and being one, it means a lot. That said, food and service was outstanding and ambiance very romantic.4/30/2013 12:00:00 AMExceeded expecationsI travel to Toronto regualrly and cant believe I didnt knoww about George before now (thank you Open Tbale !).
The two of us had the tasting menu and it was fabulous. Waiters were attentive and helpful but not overpowering.
Lovely venue. Not too big and not too pretentious4/24/2013 12:00:00 AMEvery dish was a pleasure,Every dish was a pleasure, quite complicated with many ingredients not necessarily listed on the menu. Wine steward was interested and helpful - we particularly wanted to try the local wines and both wines he recommended were excellent.4/4/2013 12:00:00 AMGeorge is always our choiceGeorge is always our choice for special occasion intimate dining. We usually select and enjoy the chef's tasting menu since it takes away the need to limit yourself to a known item as shown on most dining menus. Rather, we focus on having the surprise offering for each course and delight in conversing over if we would "choose" such an item if offered on the menu, which normally we may not be brave enough to try.12/31/2012 12:00:00 AM
