About George Restaurant
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.

George Restaurant Ratings and Reviews
Historically the food has always been WOW good. This time it was good but not WOW good so I was disappointed. We had the halibut mains and the fish was a touch overdone to me plus it did not have a lot of flavour. My other major complaint was the mains were served almost immediately after we ordered. The wine bottle was just being opened when the mains arrived. Everything felt so rushed like the wanted us out of there ASAP. Service was good but rushed. The sommelier recommended a very nice wine to match the food. Full marks to the sommelier. The restaurant is quite noisy.
Amazingly creative and delicious!
3 of us got the seven course tasting menu. Surprisingly, with the exception of the amuse bouche, the three dishes for each course were different. We sampled each other’s so we actually had a 19 course tasting menu.
A great experience for a special occasion.
We went for lunch. The waiter was very attentive and careful. Small details were carefully observed, such as turning the cups so that the handle would be in the right place. When he observed a patron with walking difficulties, he pointed her to a bathroom on the main floor instead of downstair. He was knowledgable and polite, and made a number of helpful suggestions.
The bread came without any butter, but we soon realized it didn't need any. It had just the right combination of softness, chewiness, and crispness on the outside. The 3-grain salad was delicious and delightful. The combination of flavours was surprising in a lovely way. We enjoyed each bit. The tenderloin sandwich was also a discovery, with meat as tender as you can imagine. We had the cornish hen as the main course. At most other restaurants it would have been great, but after the first two courses, it didn't stand out as much as we had expected.
The two of us don't have huge appetites, so we shared the three dishes and it was just the right amount for a long lunch.
Overall, it was a lovely afternoon.
A tasteful symphony of textures and flavors. If you’re looking for enticing dishes to sweep you off your feet, look no further. A menu full of curated dishes and a staff that’s every bit as knowledgeable about the menu as the chef, this place is every foodie’s dream come true
Great cuisine for the special NYE menu. Cocktail was excellent too. Food service was a tad too fast. It felt almost like they were rushing us through. There were a few accidents (breaking of glassware, cutlery etc) within a short period of time by the service stuff, likely rushing within the packed restaurant.
This was our first time and our expectations were very high for quality of the restaurant and particularly the tasting menu. We have been to other high end restaurants with tasting menus but this one was not even close in overall taste and food presentation. While we found the food was good, I did not find it exceptional for the high price point and so it's unlikely that I will return. The decor was also rather "tired"; floors were in desperate need of re-finishing and ambiance was too shabby for a fine dining experience, in my opinion.
First time to try a tasting menu, the waiter was very helpful. The food was really good - flavour and presentation. Had the 7-course tasting menu, the portions were just right. It was an adventure for us and we were excited every time they serve our food because we don’t know what the chef prepared for us. We were never disappointed and everything exceeded our expectation. Will come back for sure!
My wife and I went to George on the evening of our 30th wedding anniversary. It was our first visit so we defaulted to the 7 dish tasting menu with wine pairings.
The tasting menu was outstanding, and presented us with an entire array of favourite dishes. Interestingly, my wife and I received different dishes each time, which made it kind of fun to share and then to compare and contrast.
The pairings were excellent, with the sommelier choosing wines from all over the world, including some unexpected places. The pours were actually quite generous and my wife needed to back off the wine near the end.
The decor is kind of industrial cool, and plays off the buildings age, past use and origins.
We plan to make another visit soon.
We have been to George several times and they have always done an exceptional job accommodating my shellfish and mushroom allergies within the tasting menu while also creating completely unique dishes for my husband without any restrictions. This meal was absolutely no exception! The complexity, balance, thoughtfulness and creativity put into each and every plate throughout the 7 course meal was truly impressive. However, I was slightly disappointed the cheese course was removed and replaced with a gelato course, especially given it is December.
The service was excellent, as it always has been with each of our prior visits. Interestingly though, our server (Jonah) was actually the incredibly knowledgeable Sommelier who had taken us on a couple of wine pairing journeys during previous visits which we will never forget. It seemed such a shame to me for the restaurant to be missing out on his exceptional talent and passion.
Overall, it was yet another fabulous night and we look forward to going back again next year!
I have been coming to George for years now. It is consistently excellent and never fails to impress. Chef Loseto is truly an artist of the highest caliber and it shows through in every dish and every detail. This, coupled with a staff that are both knowledgeable and diligent, make George a restaurant I will return to again and again.
We were celebrating our 40 wedding anniversary. The welcoming staff and service was wonderful. Friendly ,efficient and many people working to maintain this level of service.
The food was flavourful and the presentation was a feast for the eyes.
We did the 7 course tasters menu and the only thing I didn’t like was the fois gras course ,but that is a taste issue.
It is worth the money and the evening was memorable.
Will go back for sure.
Had lunch with a client here and we were super impressed. The food was outstanding, service was well paced and I would highly recommend the restaurant and staff! We did the chef blind tasting 3-course meal and each had different options - cannot say enough about the quality of the food and the perfect presentation. Client was impressed and the food/service set the tone for a terrific meeting. I highly recommend George Restaurant and I will be back!
My previous 2 visits were a great overall experience. This time I ordered the 5 course tasting menu (the entire table has to order the tasting menu) and have really enjoyed previously, but this time 2 out of 5 were excellent, the other 3 just not my taste this time around. Out of the 5 courses 2 were dessert/ sweet...I think 1 dessert would be enough and adding an extra appetizer would be more appropriate for a pretty steep $120. If I’m going to be completely honest, the amuse bouche was probably the best “course” and was not part of the 5 courses.
We held our wedding at George and have decided to make our anniversary dinner a tradition there too. This was the first year and it was wonderful. We did the 7 course tasting menu with wine pairing, meaning that we got to try 14 different dishes and 10 different wines (by splitting each). It was excellent! The service was impeccable. Not too loud and not too quiet. The only minor critique would be one less desert course (two desert courses and desert wines were simply too much sweets).
We have enjoyed great meals at George over several years and this time we brought out-of-town friends for dinner. After a bit of puzzlement over the menu, restructured since our last visit to focus on the tasting menu options, our excellent waiter helped us understand the option and order just what we wanted. Delicious and well-prepared throughout our three courses.
Instead of ordering 3 meals in order to get the “full experience” it would be nice that be able to order one dish alone. However was told by the waiter that the portions are small and would not be sufficient for a stand alone meal.
The service was great. Nice atmosphere. I found the food a little unimaginative , but tasty netherless.
