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.

The service was excellent as usual with outstanding food with surprising taste and texture. The noise level was a bit higher as it was full house during Valentines Day celebration but acceptable.

My wife and I really enjoyed the whole experience of dining at George. We were extremely comfortable in our booth. We decided to order the 4 course tasting option therefore we could share all 8 courses. I highly recommend going with the Tasting Options off the menu. Everything was absolutely delicious, the service was top notch and the ambience was perfect!

Excellent food in pleasant surroundings. 5-course tasting menu with the wine option. Sommelier was great in her presentation of the wines, which were somewhat off the beaten path but very good. A pricey experience, but largely due to the wine add-on.

Little hard to find the right door to the restaurant. Signs are small but it is worth looking for
It’s a clean well laid out place with great service. We were late because of traffic but they got us seated, fed and out in time for the show we were going to to
Our waiter was knowledgeable and very pleasant to deal with. He made sure we got to complete our 5-course meal before we left but it was right
They have a small Ala Carte menu but they seem to specialize in the chef’s (blind) tasting menu. You learn what you are eating when it arrives at your table. We love tasting menus so this was no problem but I found the price for the menu quite a bit higher than the last few tasting menus we tried, in other restaurants and they were excellent

The perfect restaurants. Delicious food and great European atmosphere. Best dinner ever. The 10 courses tasting menu is a must and a life changing experience. Only negative the impolite front door hostess, when I called for parking info and when I arrived. All the other staff was absolutely perfect and our waiter amazing.

In my line of work I end up building relationships with a great deal of high end restaurants in Manhattan like Le Bernardin and EMP. However, George Restaurant is the first time I ever experienced a fine dining chef’s tasting menu. My boyfriend and I both got the 10 course for our anniversary. This was the greatest experience with food I have ever had, each dish introduced me to an entirely new world of flavour. Each was planted nicely and presented with a high degree of understanding. The wine list was at a premium price point but had a large and unique selection. We were served by Lucas who did an amazing job introducing us to a more classic fine dining experience and was genuinely a great guy. I would recommend to anyone who enjoy cooking and how food is prepared to sit at table 21 which has a full view of the kitchen with a large mirror with an angle of the food playing counter. The restaurant is a little older than more popular choices like canoe but it’s experience and one of a kind head chef really displays that it’s a cut above. I would say it’s a casual elegant restaurant so don’t worry about a jackets mandatory experience.

Food was very tasty. For a 5 course meal, the portions were much to big. The description was a tasting menu, but the second course was a full sized entree and the third course was an even bigger entre. My partner and I were full after the second dish, which was too bad because I'm sure I would have loved the rest so much more if I didn't feel sick. The cheese plate was one type of cheese, which I found very uninspired. Out server was attentive but not overbearing and our cocktails were delicious.

We were not celebrating any special occasion and looked for a restaurant near our hotel online. We used the app Open Table to get to know the restaurant and we liked what we read and saw. Then, we experienced the entire dinner (7 course tasting with wine pairing) and it was fabulous. We both had different servings and we both thought that everything was wonderful, tasty and well paired. The Sommelier spent quite a bit of time explaining the wines and why he chose them. The pace of service was perfect for us. We did not feel rushed. The decor was very nice. The lighting not too bright and not too low. It was one of our best experiences. Thank you.

Food was fantastic. Server failed to explain the tasting menu until we’d been sitting there for at least 30 minutes. I was supposed to get a lactose free meal, but two courses came with cheese and no indication from the server that they were lactose free cheeses, which makes me wonder a bit how careful they’re being with other dietary concerns.

Yes! I definitely would recommend for all special occasions. My hubby & I come here for all our bdays & anniversaries. We always do the tasting menu and love every creative bite! It can get quite pricey, but worth every taste & penny. We like to try differ types of restaurants, but George us definitely in our top 2.

Came here for a business lunch for the first time and everything was fantastic. I had the black truffle spaghettini with peppercorn butter; you can tell everything was made fresh from the pasta to the sauce. Their gelato was also delicious -- made fresh to order. I would highly recommend this place and I can't wait to come back.

Superb meal for NYE, all the dishes were delicious and well presented and they were able to accomdate our various restrictions. We booked for a later seating for 8 people to bring in the new year. We were expecting a more livelier vibe and midnight bubbly to bring in the new year but we told it’s not part of the set menu. No worries we ordered our own after midnight.
Perfect place for a nice quiet meal before midnight and head elsewhere to celebrate the new year.

It was New Years so it wasn’t a typical night
Very busy but nevertheless still very enjoyable
At times rushed but again under the circumstances I’m sure there were people waiting for our table
Great service but found there was some palpable tension to serve quickly
Definitely will return wine pairing was spot on

Top marks for the tasting menu on NYE and while I think your wait staff are courteous and helpful when prompted I'm giving my overall rating a 3-3 1/2 star and honestly because George restaurant is considered 5 star dining.

I thought each dish coming out of the kitchen was beautiful to look at but more importantly delicious. What I had issue with was the pacing of my meal. I know it was NYE but it really felt as if I was being rushed. I barely had time to savour a dish before the next one was plunked in front of me. And then those little things like not asking about whether or not I'd want a coffee or tea with my dessert or not double checking the bill before giving to the patron. It was only a couple of dollars which is probably why I didn't notice until I looked at my bill closer when I got home but originally my server suggested the 2014 Villa A Sesta, Il Palei, Chianti Classico but I changed it to the 2016 Baudet, Rive Droite, Grenache, Côtes du Rhône after I had a taste test. However the chianti was what was charged. Just want your servers to be mindful.

But I've given 4 stars for service because of the fact that, upon realizing I had to wait for my transportation an extra hour, the staff let me stay at my table to wait for my wheeltrans. Not only that but gave me a complimentary glass of ice wine while I waited. And while I should feel silly balking about a two dollar difference in the red wine I was charged as I said above it's more for the waitstaff to make sure the diner is being charged what they asked to eat and/or drink.

I would recommend George for foodies, business and groups. I will also say for couples as well only if you don't mind the "energetic" noise level. I myself like it a bit quieter for romantic, intimate conversations.

The lamb chops were out of this world- succulent and flavorful, tender and perfectly cooked. The desserts were subpar. Most of the appetizers were very good and creative. I would recommend trying the tasting menu as the portions were excellent.
The sommelier was easy going and friendly. The server were quick to refill your water glasses.
