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
This was a restaurant that my husband and I had wanted to try for some time. He'd suggested that to celebrate his birthday this year, we should check it out. So glad that we did. Great atmosphere. Terrific service. Phenomenal food. The server was extremely knowledgeable, offered exceptional service, and made every effort to offer us a special evening. The highlight for me was arranging for a special course of foie gras, which was not on the menu. A very memorable dining experience - reminiscent of an evening to a Manhattan hot spot. We'll return for sure - and with friends!!
As a vegetarian I was definitely not impressed. The best part of the meal was the dessert and that's not a good sign. Won't be going back again for a 100 dollar vegetarian lunch that I can better cook at home. Particularly because the chef loaded my vegetarian dishes with huge amounts of brown butter perhaps for the lack of experience cooking flavourful vegetarian meals. Service is outstanding and the restaurant has a great selection of wines.
Came here to celebrate 5th anniversary with boyfriend. The place is loudly than most upscale dining restaurants. Service was excellent. One of our courses took too long but the waiter apologized many times and gave us drinks on the house to compensate. Food is mediocre for a fine dine, we've had better, but the value isn't bad. Most dishes lacked the wow factor but the service made up for it. Don't think I would return the taste is more important for me.
This was by far one of the best dining experiences I've ever had in Toronto. From the moment my wife and I entered the restaurant, we were very well taken care of. The staff was extremely helpful and knowledgeable when it came to every dish we were being served.
The restaurant was very inviting and didn't have the stuffy feeling one would expect with fine dining. The general dress attire was casual and not pretentious. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone looking for a great dining experience.
We had the 7 course tasting menu with the wine pairing for 4 people. Everything tasted really good, my boyfriend especially loved the foie on top of quail egg on top of rabbit meat and my cousin really loved the ahi tuna. Overall we enjoyed all the dishes and was really full at the end of the 4 hour meal!
Very slow service between courses.Had to wait at least 25 minutes waiting between each course.The SA clearing our table was clearly not on his best mood and he didn't bother to hide that.Clearing the plates of our table more like in a canteen rather than in a fine dining establishment.Management didn't even bother to check on our experience until we actually brought this up to his attention.He apologized and moved on to the next table.
For the amount of money you pay,there are far better options in Toronto for fine dining.You will get a better overall experience and a real fine-dining service.
Will not go back.
We were there for our wedding anniversary and although I mentioned it on the reservation, nothing was said to us during dinner about it. Having said that, my wife had the omnivore tasting menu, with the wine pairing, while I had the vegetarian tasting menu and wine pairing. The food was superb, but the hit of the night had to be our wine tasting. The waiter was fantastic but the sommelier, with his amazing knowledge of wines stole the show. I'm vegan, and after being pressed to admit it by the waiter (only so they could offer even more amazing service) they changed up the menu to "veganize" it for me. Then the sommelier stepped up his game and adapted the wine pairings to match the equally amazing job the chef did in switching up his menu to accomodate me. Thank you for an amazing night. (Even if you didn't notice it was our anniversary. Cheers!
So...unfortunately we were very disappointed in the service. We were a table of 4 that all did the 10 course tasting menu. It took quite a bit of time between courses (we were there over 4 hours) and while I will say that the presentation and taste of the food was very good, our server and/or the kitchen dropped the ball multiple times.
While eating one of my courses I found 2 pieces of wax paper in my food. A member of our party requested no seafood/no mushrooms and received both. The manager was very apologetic and comped us 1 round of drinks for the evening but that being said, for the price that you pay and the self proclaimed "high end" dining that George aspires to, this type of thing should never happen.
Service is just as much a part of the dining experience as is the food and George does not meet the mark.
This was the second time my daughter and I celebrated our joint birthday at George. That in itself says something very positive! The food and service are both top notch. The attention to your personal preferences is notable by the dishes that we were served. Our own tastes being reflected in each course. The wine pairings were excellent, Christina, our sommelier was very knowledgeable and personable. I have, and will continue to, recommend George to friends and anyone looking for a place for a special meal.
It was all great. The food is outstanding but if your a foodie, therebis always room for improvement. We didbthe tasting menu. The aommelier was a highlight. It was alittle noisy and they told us that it was unusual - they had a large party. Its fancy, its expensive and its worth it.
The food was delicious but i was disappointed to realize that both guests needed to choose the 5-7-10 course meal. I was hoping to order 2 courses, but my husband wanted the 5, so there was WAY too much food for me. The service was just OK, not to the level you would expect for the price of the menu.
Too many flavours going on in each dish. It's a bit cluttered and confused. I prefer simplicity in dishes to showcase the dish. They all got very mixed up however everything was very well cooked and of high standards. Service was excellent. Great food presentation and wonderful ambiance. Might come back again just not for the tasting
For a special birthday we had an alcove table behind the drapes which made it a very special and intimate occasion. The plates were extremely well presented by knowledgeable staff. Food presentation and flavours were excellent. And the icing on the cake was that the chef had made a special dessert by request for my companion as a surprise. And I had only called ahead with that request the same morning. Really, an altogether outstanding dining and hospitality experience.
