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.

It was perfect. Only issue is there were only three other tables so it lacked the noise and scene of a busier restaurant. But for quiet dining and lovely food very good.

My wife and I came here on our date night. We were looking forward to enjoying some good food but was a little disappointed as the food was just mediocre and not worth the value.

I took my girlfriend to George Restaurant for her birthday before we went to the opera. I originally selected the restaurant because they offered many vegetarian options for her and meat options for me and it was within walking distance of our hotel. Little did we know we were in for a perfect start to our evening. The décor was old European and everything was in place and perfect. They sat us on the patio among the plants and water. We were under a cover in case it rained and the patio was quiet enough for us to enjoy our conversation. The staff was excellent. They were all very helpful with selecting dishes and explaining what was in them. The food was exquisite! The flavors complimented each other and we both finished everything on our plates. The portions are the right size to allow you to try at least two items on the menu. The dessert was just as good as the meal and included a Happy Birthday note from the restaurant. We wouldn't have changed a thing and it was definitely a highlight of our trip.

The food was fantastic. We had both the meat and vegetarian 7 course option at our table and they were excellent. In fact this is the best restaurant vegetarian food I have had in the city to-date. The service was very courteous and highly professional. The Patio is a great setting too.

As always, lunch in the outdoor courtyard at George is a wonderful way to while away an afternoon. Great food, service and atmosphere. It's an oasis in the heart of downtown. Can't wait to return.

This was a celebratory dinner for my wife and her friends. They simply loved their meal. The food was incredible, and they all mentioned how the service was some of the best that they have received in all of Toronto. Two of the guests were vegetarian, and they really appreciated how wonderful and creative their meal was. They could not stop talking about their night when I caught up with them the next day - thank you to GM Mark Parnega, and his entire team for making their experience one to remember!

I was disappointed by the service last night. There was no offer for help with wine selection (and I ordered two bottles.) There was a long wait between course one and two and when food was dropped at the table there was no presentation of what was on the plate, which usually happens. My general feeling was that there was no care in the dining experience - which feels very off for George restaurant. I have been to George two other times and both times the service was exceptional and made the experience great.

unbelievably overrated and over priced. wait staff were incredibly kind and courteous, but no one came to take our food order for 40 minutes, and wine pairings to match each course were not timed with each course of the seven course tasting menu. food was imaginative, but flavours did not always compliment the other items on the plate. the meat was not cooked properly, and in general, the items that should have been served hot were not hot when they arrived at the table. I would never go here again. seven course tasting menu with wine pairings for two, with tax and time was $625. huuuuge disappointment.

We had the four course tasting menu. My wife and I had four plates, each different from the other, so that we were served eight different dishes in all. Great food, including ingredients
that I wouldn't normally choose myself. Everything was delicious. We booked a room at the adjoining Inn at Verity; a fabulous room. Unfortunately we booked through Expedia, instead of booking direct, and as a result, it cost considerably more, as the hotel has a special weekend rate of the hotel room, and the tasting menu at George, all for one price. We asked to get the special, when we saw it advertised in the room, but because we had booked through Expedia, we couldn't get it. A bummer.

I have known the restaurant for a while, and its association with an amazing club/spa in the same building called VERITY.

I was dining as a single as I was in town for business. I ordered three courses and drinks with each course as I expected it to be like every other fine dining restaurant I had been to where the meal would be served over 1-2 hours. I was certainly wrong in the assumption. I received my amuse bouche and all three courses in under 30 minutes. I would be finishing one course while a waiter hovered beside me with my next course. The table next to me, who was seated before me, hadn’t even received their amuse bouche prior to me being completed my third course. I felt rushed for the entire meal and it was a less than enjoyable experience. The food was wonderful but the service was one of the worst I have experienced.

Absolutely fantastic! My table took part in the tasting menu and were blown away with how amazing the food was. We also did the wine paring with the meal, and were given outstanding wines with each dish.
Would definitely recommend if looking for a special night out with amazing food and amazing drinks!

We dined at George for a special occasion and had just previously been there a couple of months ago. The food was fabulous as usual but the service was uneven. Our previous visit had flawless service when our party of four ordered the seven course tasting menu. They were able to accommodate our food restrictions easily. This time our party of five ordered the tasting menu again. There were several mix ups, some restricted foods were served , and our table had to wait for all of us to be served at the same time. This happened for three courses. We were disappointed at the service for such a high end restaurant.

The most incredible dining experience. We had the five course meal with wine pairing and it was amazing. The staff worked exceptionally well together as George serves in a manner that requires complex meal and pairing coordination. The entire team worked extremely well together and made the night most wonderful.
