Great experience and service. The price was a bit high but try it once at least.
Absolutely amazing experience! Food and wine was perfect and the service followed suit. Cant wait to go back!
Simply the best, great with allergies as well. Lucas and the whole team went the extra mile to ensure everything was perfect for our delicious 7 course meal.
1st table presented was not to our liking. No problem to get us a better location.
Service was very slow. probably 45 min before we could place our order.
We chose the 5 course option. Again , too much time between the the 5 servings.
My wife and I went to George Restaurant for the first time on Saturday evening. We were celebrating my wife's birthday. We booked the restaurant in February and were looking forward to this dining experience. We haven't stopped talking about our experience. We chose the 7 course tasting menu. It was very exciting in anticipation of the next course. Excellent service and catering to individual dining restrictions. Lucas our server provided impeccable service. Everyone seemed to work in unison, from napkins being folded, to filling of water glasses to having a description of each course.....ultimately the food was like an explosion of flavours in our mouth. We found this to be an incredible dining experience and are already planning for a return visit for our anniversary in July. Incredible experience!!!
This was our first time at George. We’re from Buffalo and come to Toronto several times a year, mostly to go to the theater or Art galleries. We’ve been to many great restaurants in TO and George was another great dining experience to add to the many great choices in Toronto.
Great food, service & ambience.
The service was spectacular. Rob our server was so fantastic . I would request to have him again. We had the tasting menu with wine pairing. Incredible food and wine experience. The ambience was warm and inviting. Would definitely dine there again when in town. Wonderful wine list. Superb!!!!!
The best experiences I have ever had at a restaurant.
Excellent food - great presentation, fantastic execution, both bold and delicate flavours. The tasting menu offers lots of little tasty surprises in beautifully presented dishes. Well worth the visit.
Excellent! Waiter was extremely professional and meal/presentation was great.
We went for a birthday Lunch and had the four course menu for $80. It was amazing. Love the chef’s “surprise” tasting plates and was great value. The only dish I didn’t like was the venison which is something I don’t eat. It went to my husband who said it was fantastic. We’ll be back for sure!
We had a terrible experience at this restaurant. Our server was very pretentious and super judgy when we were trying to order our meals. He had recommended we get the fixed course meals but we didn't want to do that. We tried to order the individual meals but the way he responded to our orders was super judgy. Then after we placed our orders, he didn't come back to even check on how we were doing or how our food was tasting. No one did. No one even asked if we wanted to order more champagne. This place was terrible. Incredibly disappointing. NOT worth the money especially because there are so many more great restaurants in the city.
Spectacular evening! Every detail thought of :)
The food was very good but small portions and a little on the expensive side.
The service was good but not exceptional. Our waiter could have been a little more attentive.
Amazing tasting menu
I have been to George before. This was my husband’s first experience. I took him for his birthday. This is more high end than he is used to, so I was a bit nervous, especially given some of the more recent less stellar reviews. George did not disappoint. Everyone was at the top of their game. My husband truly enjoyed the experience.
Booked the resto in advance for Valentine's day. The restaurant is pretty neat, fairly big and the atmosphere is pretty good. I was recommended to try this restaurant a year ago by a friend. I had a mind set coming to the restaurant thinking that it will be somewhat pricey but you will atleast get a decent meal. Its also rational to charge more for meals on special holidays and events, but overall the meal was pretty unsatisfying considering a $175 per person price tag. I didn't really get to see the menu as the waiter somewhat rushed us to order drinks and to get started with the meal. Its neat that they served different courses for the lady and man, though thats all about it. The chocolate tasting dessert was far too sweet. I've had way better for the same price.
Food is always amazing, especially the tasting menu.
James was our Sommelier and he was outstanding!!!! I loved my experience here from start to finish. The food was vibrant, delicious and innovative!
Visited George with my husband for dinner on Saturday, February 10. The restaurant is located in a vibrant area, interesting architecture and style. As we arrived and reached the Hosts desk, we were asked for our time and name, nobody even tried to make an eye contact with us let alone ask us how we are doing or if we were there for a special dinner. We were seated in a very corner by the window and my husband asked to change seats as the space was too small and very cold air was coming from the window. We were asked if we would like a tasting menu and paring with it. We opted for a tasting menu and a la cart drinks.
As the food started coming, we noticed there was very little enthusiasm in a wait stuff to announce to course. In a matter of fact, they barely could pronounce the dish name and ingredient. It not sound too welcoming and intriguing. THE ABSOLUTE WORST PART was when they brought us our meat course and as we were about to put our forks in it, the waitress ran to us,collected our plates saying that the chef needed to check something and brought our plates to another table. WE WERE FLOORED!!!! No apology from the management, nothing, they just simply messed up the tables and brought the wrong food and took it away. BUT TO BRING IT TO THE NEXT TABLE!!!! are you kidding me. The only reason I gave a star for the service is to give it to the guy who was clearing our dishes, he was the only professional in the entire establishment. His timing was perfect, his attitude, his attention.... he went above and beyond. I think he is the only person out of wait staff this place should keep. Too bad I did not get his name.
Very poor experience overall. We visited a few higher end restaurants in the city, some where more interesting than others, but this place should not market itself as a high end place. Poor poor experience
This is far from fine dinning
5 course tasting menu, both vegetarian and non, complete with wine pairings, made for a very special evening out.
My Husband and our family (aunts and grandmas) have been talking about your restaurant forever - most have been. My husband went a couple yrs ago and love the food and experience and couldn't wait to take me one day. Finally, years after talking about it we travelled from Tbay to Ottawa for the weekend and decided to fly into Toronto specifically on the last day of our trip so I could experience "George". We paid for hotel and flights just for this dinner reservation. So we were very excited! Plus is was his 36th birthday and I even bought a new dress and everything. Food was excellent but service was horrible and I mean horrible. Very little conversations was had and our drinks went empty on 3 occasions (including our waters). I had to put them at the end of our table just so someone could see we wanted more. We watched as waiters actually looked at our table and I ended up having to ask for refills each time. I was actually embarrassed. At the very end when it was tipping time thats when the most conversation took place.He was really working hard for his tip. Also to strike a convo we asked for more information on a particular wine as we were doing the pairing with the tasting menu and they said they would go write down the info so we can purchase it, and she never did end up coming back. I was sad that his birthday dinner was such a bummer. For a 600$ meal the overall experience was something we talked about the whole way home. I was really disappointing a on the amount we spent to come to the restaurant, eat at the restaurant and the memories we are now left with from the experience. With that being said - the food was amazing and we will come back maybe, but not for the tasting menu. Our travels are based around fine dining and we have been to some amazing restaurants including Michelin Star Restaurants. We felt it was way to much money for the very little experience you get. If we come back it will be for maybe a quick lunch.
Fantastic from the moment I emailed about my allergies (peanuts, tree nuts & shellfish). Chef Loseto personally emailed within an hour or two and I felt extremely comfortable. The service was excellent...and I learned about their multi-stage review of meals prior to landing at the table. Exceptional. The cocktails, focaccia and meal were fabulous—tasty, interesting and surprising flavour combinations.
Excellent as usual
I and my wife wanted to go for 7 course option but were told it will take about 3 hours and 5 course will take about 2 hours. So we chose 5 course as we had a cut-off to pick up kids. But considering we were out of the restaurant after our 5 course meals in less than 1.5 hrs, we were left wondering if we could/ should have gone for the 7 course. Other than that service was fantastic.
My wife opted for 5 course Vegetarian tasting menu and it ended up being one of her best dining experiences. I tasted the vegetarian dishes as well and they were fantastic!
I opted for a no shell fish regular tasting and was disappointed with a couple of dishes that seemed to have no flavor or texture. But couple of items were amazing.
The $30/ glass for regular red wine (I wasn't even given the name) seemed a bit high. But food and ambience was great. We will definitely visit again and opt for wine pairing next time and plan 3 hrs for a 7-course meal.
Everything from the service to the seven course wine pairing was impeccable. Definitely one of the most expensive meals we’ve had, but also the most worth it. The fois gras course with duck confit was to die for.
Fantastic place. As it is not cheap, I was afraid that it might be too snobby/too posh for my liking, but it's truly friendly and very accommodating. The food is excellent, so are the wines! And the service is simply impeccable. Overall - the price is understandable and justified. It's a great place for a date, for friends' get-together, but also if one wants to impress someone visiting Toronto!
The overall experience was good but with the price of the menu, I was expecting better quality and faster service. The wait between the courses was long. The waiter was really nice and also offered free wine for my husband birthday. The food was great but too much appetizer and desert compare to the main food.
Food and service was amazing! We were honestly surprised by some of the flavours, as in you'd never expect food to taste that way, in such an excellent sense. 5 stars!
We loved the atmosphere immediately. Staff very courteous overall. Our main waiter was Enzo and we liked his manner. Attentive but not overwhelming. Good pacing in between each serving, We each had the tasters menu which was fun and interesting. It was a special night out and we were not disappointed. We so enjoyed the Sommelier. He really contributed to the quality of the evening and we would like him to be complimented on that. I loved his dress attire, quite splendid.
It was a real treat to share lunch here. The ambience and noise level were ideal for having a good visit with old friends, and the food was innovative, delicious and attractive. We all agreed that it is a definite repeat!
Birthday or event
It was an amazing and flawless dinner. Perfectly executed. Staff made for an enjoyable experience. We will be back.
Always a pleasure....never disappointed. Have been visiting George since it opened and hosted a PR event here in the past.
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.
My dinner at George was exceptional good and memorable.
The seven course tasting menu with wine was perfectly paired and nicely paced. I have dined at fine restaurants in many cities around the world. I would rank my experience at George in the top ten.
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.
We went to George for a birthday celebration, always wonderful. Service is excellent and food was delicious.
