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 sommeliers will ensure selections are perfectly paired with the unique cuisine.

George Restaurant is beautiful and the service was very good. The value for the food was below par for me. We had a group of 5 women and we each did the 5 course tasting menu. The food was good and beautifully prepared. I did have hair in 2 of my 5 dishes. The first time I though maybe it was my hair but realize the second time that it was not. The restaurant did cover the cost of one of our bottles of wine ($98). I would have expected them to cover my meal as well ($120). They apologized and were very embarrassed which I appreciate. We each had cocktails, tasting menu, 3 bottle of wine, limoncello and coffee with our bill at over $1000 I just wasn’t overly impressed with the value for the food/experience. The actual service was great and our waiter was amazing. I just think if I’m spending that much money on a dinner it should be flawless.

Excellent service. We had the 5 course tasting. What a great way to experience different kinds of food in a fun way. I eat with my eyes and each course was a beautiful presentation.

The 7-course tasting menu was delicious and leisurely paced. I think we were there for almost 4 hours. Many of the courses had similar textures and flavor palettes. Each dish was quite heavily sauced and things skewed to the heavy side. It would have been nice to have a few "fresher" items in the mix to perk it up a bit. Presentation was beautiful though, and we enjoyed this culinary adventure.

Excellent service, creative menu & lovely decor.
It was a great night overall.
Slightly on the pricier side, but I believe it was worth it as it was a true experience.
We felt very special and everyone on staff was friendly and went out of their way to show us a great time.
We had the seven course tasting menu and we could have been rolled out of there as we were full!
But every dish was delicious. Loved it

We haven't been to George in many years. I was disappointed as the food lacked any kind of WoW. Our server was focused on 1 table, which seemed to be friends of hers. One of the best things they make is their flatbred. We asked for more and were told they ran out. Very surprising since the restaurant was only 1/2 full. In the end, the bill was quite high considering what we ate. I will not return.

We had a wonderful experience at George. We had a table of 4. The waitstaff were outstanding in their knowledge and accommodation to food allergies. We each had the 5 course meal. The courses were served with two different chef selections to each couple which was great to try 10 courses total. The wild boar was exceptional with a variety of flavors coming together. I left off one star on the food as it would be great to have a contrast spice sauce on the plate to draw a contrast to flavor and savor.

I have been to George a few times before but this last time we went the service was not good. Our table constantly was missing a fork, servers did not take time to welcome us or explain food. The fois gras was under cooked. Overall the food was not as good as it used to be. I will likely not come back

I went for my anniversary and I was extremely uncomfortable and disappointed.
Our waiter was extremely rude and if I’m being honest sexist in his actions. He refused to talk directly to me, he only talked to my boyfriend. When I would ask a question, he would turn to my boyfriend and look at him when he was answering, when I ordered the wine and my boyfriend didn’t say a single word, he handed the glass to him to taste when he knows nothing about wine. My boyfriend who never notices things like these brought it up to my several times throughout dinner that it made him uncomfortable. When I talked to the manager, instead of an apology, he blankly stared at me and said he would talk to him. The ironic part of this is with a bill over $400 that was being put on MY card, I should’ve been the one he was catering to. It’s unfortunate that this special night was ruined. Can’t imagine paying such prices again for such terrible service.
And not even an apology. It’s 2019, sexism at such a high end establishment is extremely unacceptable. Or any at all. Unfortunate because the food was very good.

We visited George because it’s my husbands name and this restaurant is like an oasis in the desert ie the area was pretty dodgy but the experience was first class, in fact probably the best meal ever. We had the 5 course blind tasting which including the amuse bouche turned into a 12 course sharing menu . Every course was outstanding. Words cannot describe. . AWESOME

This place is amazing
When I go there with a friend, we always end up with a tasting menu, as there is so much detail in the options, you would need to study the menu for at least an hour, and who has time, when you want to catch up?
The patio is a total haven of wonderfulness...
water feature keeps us cool, and also is the white noise to keep conversations private.
Fabulous wait staff. Having been there every few months for years, I recognize them, and they recognize each.
Food is just downright crazy good .....

I know all restaurants have difficulty with obstreperous guests however there was a table of four who were not loud and drunk but also using four letter words at the top of their voice. Dress codes have gone the way of the dodo bird but showing up at a lovely restaurant like George which is also expensive you’d expect guests Io wear something more that a white tee shirt
We had requested a booth off to the side which we didn’t get so we were right in the middle of the circus sideshow . It was extremely unpleasant.

As Well at the table beside us the people were eating with their hands and shoving food in their mouths. I guess there’s not much you can do about these kind of things except to not eat in a public restaurant
I will add that the sommelier continued to pour more and more wine to these people as the evening progressed even though it was obvious they had already had too much

Blind multi-course tasting menu, maybe pretentious (chef telling you what is good) and maybe causes a lack of focus on doing each course well. We had the seven course tasting menu. Most were good but not great tasting. When too many ingredients are separated on a plate, how does one assume they should be placed together in the mouth - especially when some are very minute portions? Unfortunately we have had better tasting menus at other restaurants (some more expensive and some less). Maybe it's me, but I don't want to share every course with my companion. This restaurant may be your style, but not ours.

An outstanding evening, food was exceptional as was our waitress. Wine sommelier was really helpful as wine list offered great choice.
Only slight disappointment was not to have been offered a bigger table, there were plenty for host to choose from.
Lovely touch from them as it was our wedding anniversary and my wife’s birthday.
Thanks for a great evening.
