    We liked the restaurant very much. The wait staff were attentive and knowledgeable, We had the 7 course tasting menue and there was a very long wait (I estimate 45 mins) between two of our courses. When we asked about it the waitress said that the chef had been preparing a large order and had not be able to do ours. I found that difficult to accept. But the food was excellent. Really excellent. The wait staff were helpful and well spoken and were quick to help with locations of washrooms, retrieving our coats and keeping our water glasses filled. We will probably be back. The noise level was very high mainly coming from two tables close to us. It made conversation problematic.

    Disappointed at the tasting manual. To salty, waitress pours wine like farmers, with full glass, same with sparkling waters. The cooling is too trying, did not bring out the any beautiful taste of the food itself.

    I recently got a promotion and had a milestone birthday so I treated some family members out to the tasting menu. It was a gastronomic adventure and the food and service did not disappoint. We were definitely full after the five course tasting menu (George’s tasting portions are much larger than other fine dining restaurants) plus the bread and complimentary amuse bouche. We also ordered a bottle of wine and glass of champagne. There were so many dishes (you get variations among the group for each course) but the ones that stuck out were the seafood appetizers (lobster, hamachi, trout), the sweetbread, the perfectly cooked lamb, veal and bison cuts, and honestly the bread crisps. Cheese and dessert were also lovely. Service was excellent - especially since half our table had gluten-free, nut and some seafood and dairy allergies to contend with (Kimberly was very understanding and careful to ensure those with food allergies got the right dish) - and they really pay attention to your group’s pace when clearing and bringing out the next course. The restaurant was busy as it was Saturday night so it was definitely a bustling noise. However the ambience, service and decent food portions made for a fine dining experience that was comfortable, unpretentious and enjoyable overall.

    My last visit at George was a few years ago and the service and meal were fantastic. This time I find that the concept was good (different dishes can be served for the same course) but the execution was not well executed. Our main server was friendly and professional. Plating in general was a bit messy. & we could spot a few mistakes on the execution by others: one dish was misplaced - for allergies but luckily a server caught the error, one component for another dish was missed, and one dish was presented upside down comparing to others. If we compare the price and experience with the other restaurant, not certain if I would pick George again.

    We come to George's as a splurge, to enjoy their tasting menu. This time, the experience fell short from what we have come to expect. We chose the tasting menu with wine pairing. Getting it started was slow - the table remained bare for quite some time after enjoying the complimentary Prosecco. The bread order took a good 30 minutes to materialize after it had been placed. The food was well plated, and looked fantastic. The taste on more than one dish didn't excite our palettes, unfortunately. The sommelier was less enthusiastic than some of the sommeliers we have had the pleasure to meet in the past. To top it off, a few minutes before the check arrived, we spotted a mouse running across the floor, and enjoying the crumbs from one of the adjacent tables that had recently vacated the restaurant. We alerted the server, who was quite apologetic. We proceeded to pay for our $550 dollar experience, including the $5 bread basket, and left the restaurant feeling a little poorer, and disappointed. Hopefully this is a one off, as it has been a fantastic restaurant experience for us in the past.

    I seem to be one of the few people who did not enjoy their experience at George. While the service was impeccable, the food was disappointing. We had the tasting menu and found the flavours and ingredients mismatched. Daily change and personalization sound great in theory, but it led to an odd dining experience that felt thrown together. We each received different dishes, even with no dietary restrictions taken into account. You could not share the experience with your companions, although to be fair this was explained ahead of time. What was not explained were the charges for flat water and bread. I believe that water, whether you filter it yourself or not, should be complimentary at a restaurant of this calibre. While the service was excellent, the food just wasn’t for us. From the large number of positive reviews, perhaps our palettes were simply not prepared for such adventurous cuisine. Regardless, I’d rethink your water charge.

    The food and those from the kitchen were wonderful. The woman who was in charge of our table was incredibly rude and condescending. She asked us for our food preferences, and when we gave them, she said "I can't change chef's menu" - then why did you ask us? It also felt like she didn't want us to be there, and made us feel like we didn't belong. Not only that, but she only came and checked on us once in the 2 1/2 hours we were there. Based on this experience, I won't be back.

    This was not the fine dining experience I had envisioned. From staff not being able to explain the menu properly, did not ask if I wanted my coat to be checked in but asked if I needed to check my jacket out, to being charged for a glass of flat water that I was not given the option to choose from other types of water. The waitress poured the water in my glass like any restaurant so I was not expecting to see a charge on my bill.

    We had a guest with a restriction of no sauce. We would have been amazed if the dish would come with just a main with no sauce. We repeatedly told our server this. Our server even observed that one of our guest was scrapping away at the sauce on his meat. If at that point, the kitchen would come out with a piece of meat just cooked and no sauce on it, that would have made this restaurant and the server a Michelin star worthy of both. However, our server “underestimated” our guest and his restrictions when he listed it to our server and upon witnessing our guest scrapping the sauce deliriously off his meat did nothing about it. I was at George just a few weeks ago where the gratuity was added to the bill. I tipped more in addition to that. However this time it was not. A bit different and a bit inconsistent. Did not enjoy George this time. Will consider if go back or not. Dessert was not fantastic either. Which is another reason.
