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.

Upon arrival we were invited to a table that was virtually at the entrance directly across the hostess. Our request was for a private table, away from noise, preferably by the window.

The food was mediocre at best. My entre was comprised of two small strips of Ribeye Steak approximately 2.5" by .75" in dimension. It was a challenge to chew, laden with gristle.

Prices given the food quality were nothing short of outrageous.

Great service and excellent food. My concern was the small tables that sit 2, just too small. Also the servers are rushing to take our plates while we are still eating, as we were likely in a conversation. They should ask, Can I take your plate for you? Everything else was excellent.

7 course tasting menu was delicious - every course was a hit ( and we liked that each of us got different choices at each course). Very attentive service. The fans kept the patio temperature comfortable

Totally exceeded our expectations The 3 of us did a 5 course tasting menu which was plenty. Service was excellent. Each team member was was attentive, friendly, professional and extremely knowledgeable. Each course was a culinary surprise of creativity & artistry without pretense. The food was local, fresh & flavorful. Every course was explained as we each had something different. My 20 year old son was pushed way outside his comfort zone especially not knowing ahead of time what he would be eating but, he thoroughly enjoyed his meal . I was unfamiliar with a few of the foods but,also found it all delicious. My husband is the most adventurous and he felt the same. An experience like none we’ve ever had, the thought, care & ingenuity that went into each dish made it an evening we won’t soon forget. The interior design was very cool, as well. Cozy & opulent with an edge.

We had a celebration for my friend's 40th birthday and we enjoyed the tasting menu a lot. The tasting menu was customised for everyone, I was jealous and greedy and I wanted to try my friends' food LOL.

The 5 course tasting menu included a small cold appertiser, a seafood appertiser, a hot appertiser, a main meat course and a dessert. They are all delicious, different , something that you cant find every where. The ingredients were fresh . The sauce and pairing were crafted with thoughts and love. Our servers were all knowledgeable and they could thoroughly explain to us on each ingredient that the chef applied :-). The meat course filled you up. you would be totally satisfied after the 5 courses.

We sat at the patio on a hot night, surprisingly, it was not hot and it was comfy enough to have a good meal. Nice garden setting. I heard that it is good for wedding... So, I have found my wedding venue already !

Overall, it is a very nice experience, great food, great services, even the host that I had been talking to arrange a special day for my best mate, was extremely friendly and accomodating.

We enjoyed the 7 course tasting menu with paired wines. The service was fantastic and every dish was different, perhaps a bit too much variety if that's possible. The restaurant itself lacked an ambience in my opinion. I would recommend the dining experience.

My favourite restaurant in Toronto. The chef is a true culinary artist. Exotic food pairing and menu changes seasonally with the use of local products. Whether you are having the tasting menu or ala carte you will not be disappointed

I had the 10 dishes tasting menu with wine. The wine selection was pretty good (except one that was a bit boring), and the highlight of the evening. The food was pretty good, although some dishes were a bit 'one-dimensional' in the tasting experience, and a couple of dishes were pretty similar. Overall, it was a good experience, but a lot of details lacking to bring it to the next level. One could start to serve some 'petit four' with the coffee, as that part was a little disappointing I must admit: just anything here is better than nothing...

Chef Loseto prepared an exquisite, ten course tasting utilizing flavors from around the world. The sommelier and waiter were enthusiastic, knowledgeable and made the night fun. Each person in our group of three had a plate created just for them with a matching wine selected based on their taste. Staff help the first timer find wines they enjoyed. Two parties of approximately 60 in private rooms yet no lull in food and yoi always felt you had the staffs full attention. Incredible!

We had the seven course tasting menu for our anniversary. The twist was that we were each served a different dish for every course - a first for us. Fourteen distinct dishes served with fourteen different wine pairings. The food overall was superb with some lesser dishes trumped by some excellent offerings. Very knowledgeable service for both the food and wine. We sat at the chef’s table with a view of the sunken kitchen that was very lively. We would definitely return for another go - may even try the ten course tasting!

2nd time here on a return mini vacation to Toronto. Great restaurants but this is the best upscale tasting menu without being overly stuffy or pretentious. It is also a double sided tasting menu and I have not found another one anywhere I have traveled. (To explain, if 2 people get the 7 course tasting, both people will get 7 different dishes.....14 different dishes total. Add the wine pairing and you get to try 14 different wines.) My wife and I try the one presented to us, then swap the dish and the wine to try the other. Fun to compare and talk about who liked what better, etc. and the staff including our excellent somelliere enhance that discussion tremendously. DO engage them in the experience as they have a LOT of knowledge and appreciate your input. Will be hard pressed any time in Toronto NOT to have George on our must list.

Great place to enjoy fine dining with the 5 or 7 or 10 course meals with wine pairing. Amazing service and the the wait staff are always looking to make your meal a night to remember. The chef is constantly changing the courses so you return visits are a new taste adventure.

The impeccable presentation is only surpassed by the marvelous combination of flavours. I have a number of food allergies but they provided no challenges at all. Everything was perfect. The portions are the right size for making multiple courses an enjoyable rather than overwhelming experience. The service was very correct but also very warm and friendly--a difficult balancing act. We ate outside on the gardened terrace on a very hot day but the fans and overhead canopies kept us shaded and comfortable.
