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 was the most impressive dining experience I've ever had. Even though it was on the expensive side, it was the best meal I've eaten. Every dish was creative and took you through a flavourful journey from the first bite to the last.

Food is very good here. We had tasting 7 course tasting menu and the food are all different between 2 of us! At the end, we are very full and satisfied with our choice. The waiters are very experience and they know which wine you should order to go with your food. They pay attention to details on your table. Make sure that the wine are always ready in the glass, water is always available without asking to refill. Food is very creative and exceptionally delicious.

Overall Good food, great ambiance, and good service. Wine pairing with the food was not as good as anticipated. Value wasn't quite there unfortunately although would recommend others to try it for themselves as the Restaurant has many very good reviews and this is the reason I chose it for my girl friend's birthday celebration.

We had a lovely birthday celebration for two on Saturday night. Our server was Enzo, who did a marvelous job. The service was warm and professional, with good recommendations. The menu price point is high but not overpriced, and the food was exceptional. Great care was taken by the kitchen to accommodate vegetarian and gluten free specifications. We'll be back for sure.

Horrible experience. For a similar price point, restaurant Canoe is a significantly better choice

George’s lack of attention to detail, poor communication, and high noise level does meet the standards at this price point.

My husband and I had the tasting menu- and were delighted to find out that we each were getting a different dish. So we split each of those and had 14 delicious plates! We did the wine pairing and quite enjoyed trying some new wines. Service was top notch. Would go back again

I had high expectations, unfortunately it was just ok.
The food was overpriced and I ordered the fish which was not cooked well. We ordered a la carte.
The restaurant was quiet, so much that we couldn't have a conversation without the people beside us hearing everything we said, and vice-versa.
I have had much better meals elsewhere.

Impeccable service, superb tasting menu, and to top it off my date and I had distinctly different tasting courses so we were able to taste one another's dishes. Foie gras, boar, tenderloin, all delicious! A wonderful Barbera D'Alba went well with all.

Awesome! We went there for my husband's birthday. We loved the three course tasting lunch menu, chef's signature. The courses are 'surprises' that the waiter describes and explains. Neither of us received the same dish. Taste was delicious! Very flavorfoul food. We had tartare, lamb, steak and amazing desserts. All dishes combined tasty sauces and exotic tastes. Chef was very kind and sent us a complimentary dish.

Service was very helpful. We went there with our 4 months old baby and they accomodate everything for our stroller to fit in. Service was friendly, attentive and professional. It was an amazing food experience.

Only thing I regret is that we wanted the chef to chat with us for a bit since we were the only ones at the restaurant on a monday at 1:30pm.

Our annual anniversary dinner (25 years!!) where we go to a different restaurant each year. Without a doubt the experience here was one of the best, if not #1. Great staff, fantastic presentation of dishes on the tasting menu as well as the taste of each and every dish. Wine pairings were perfect but it was the input from the sommelier that really added to the whole experience. We may have to change our tradition and just return here each anniversary. Fantastic.

The care that goes into combining the foods on your plate so that there is a splendid taste sensation on your tongue is rare and appreciated. We had the seven course pairing with wine and it was just to die for from beginning to end! Exceptional.

Having dined at George some time ago, and being delighted, my husband and I eagerly anticipated a wonderful meal.
Sadly, anything but ensued.
The underwhelming courses of food were followed by the most Pedestrian matched wines
we would Not encourage people to dine here.

Loved our table, closest to kitchen, we got to see all the action. Even a mirror on ceiling which was tilted to see right into kitchen. Server was awesome! Very helpful and knowledgeable. Drinks were delicious! 7 course tasting menu was good, but overall underwhelming. I would go back to try something from the a la crate menu.

As a long time vegetarian I was a little disappointed with the tasting menu...the flavours were good but it was quite boring. I felt like I was eating a tasting menu designed by a meat lover with little knowledge or creativity of vegetarian cuisine it would have been nice to see some risk and variety. The regular tasting menu however was on point with meat and seafood cooked to perfection and what my partners tells me was a perfect balance of flavour. The cheese plates were exquisite and the wine parring near perfect.

So surprised to find an unfriendly hostess who showed us to the worst table in the house which was located next to a fire hose. When I asked to find another table, she directed us to a cramped table with a view of the kitchen for me and my husband staring at the fire hose. All during the evening, I watches as she guided couples to other less desirable tables and when we left the more open feeling tables were still empty. I had made the reservation a month in advance and I told the Hostess that it was my birthday. The wonderful food and table service were dampened by the hostile and the able location.
