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.

This was our 2nd time going to George. Once again the service was exceptional. My wife has a dietary restriction so I emailed them to ask some questions. They replyed within 30 mins and went out of thier way to make sure we could enjoy our meal. Once we arrived the waitstaff was friendley and attentive. We did the tasting menu, and we were very impressed by their abilty to match great tasting wine with even better tasting food. We drove 2 hours and booked a hotel just to come back to George and it was worth every penny.

Highly recommend this place.

This is by far the best restaurant in Canada! We've tried many, but the food and service at George are second to none. If any restaurant deserves a Michelin star it's George!

This is a lovely restaurant - my husband and I both did the 7-course tasting menu which meant that 14 different dishes came to our table. I also did the paired wines, and the sommelier came to the table to discuss each of his choices.

Great tasting menu. Missing a few of the extra elements of the top tasting menu experiences with a pallet cleanser between the fish and next course or a small after dinned chocolate of some kind. We didn’t do the wine pairing but our server chose two great wines, a white and a red, to take us through the meal.

This was our first time dining at George and I can't say enough great things about our experience. We had the 7 course tasting menu with the additional wine pairings and it did not disappoint. From the service to the amazing food, everything we had to eat during our tasting was unbelievable. Our wine pairings recommended by our Sommelier were exceptional. We will definitely plan another visit again soon.

Mixups in our orders detracted from the lunch experience. The food was good but not excellent. The booth seating was uncomfortable. George has been one of our favourite restaurants but this occasion wasn’t up to standard.

The food and service at George were both incredible. We had the Five Course Tasting, and it was outstanding. Each of us recieved a different course each time. We were celebrating our wedding anniversary. Our dessert plates had Happy Anniversary written in Chocolate. A really nice touch. George is not inexpensive but well worth the cost. We will be back.

What a great experience! My husband and I ordered the 7 course tasting menu. Each of the 7 dishes were different, so you really got to taste 14 different dishes. Each course was excellent--both in flavor and presentation. The wait staff was very knowledgeable and friendly.

The attention they put on the details is remarkable. Definitely worth it for special occasions. Get the wine paring and the 7 coarse meal!
My only issue was the table we got was a bit small for two.

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.

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.
