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.

We had the seven course tasting menu for our anniversary. The twist was that we were each served a different dish for every course - a first for us. Fourteen distinct dishes served with fourteen different wine pairings. The food overall was superb with some lesser dishes trumped by some excellent offerings. Very knowledgeable service for both the food and wine. We sat at the chef’s table with a view of the sunken kitchen that was very lively. We would definitely return for another go - may even try the ten course tasting!

2nd time here on a return mini vacation to Toronto. Great restaurants but this is the best upscale tasting menu without being overly stuffy or pretentious. It is also a double sided tasting menu and I have not found another one anywhere I have traveled. (To explain, if 2 people get the 7 course tasting, both people will get 7 different dishes.....14 different dishes total. Add the wine pairing and you get to try 14 different wines.) My wife and I try the one presented to us, then swap the dish and the wine to try the other. Fun to compare and talk about who liked what better, etc. and the staff including our excellent somelliere enhance that discussion tremendously. DO engage them in the experience as they have a LOT of knowledge and appreciate your input. Will be hard pressed any time in Toronto NOT to have George on our must list.

Great place to enjoy fine dining with the 5 or 7 or 10 course meals with wine pairing. Amazing service and the the wait staff are always looking to make your meal a night to remember. The chef is constantly changing the courses so you return visits are a new taste adventure.

The impeccable presentation is only surpassed by the marvelous combination of flavours. I have a number of food allergies but they provided no challenges at all. Everything was perfect. The portions are the right size for making multiple courses an enjoyable rather than overwhelming experience. The service was very correct but also very warm and friendly--a difficult balancing act. We ate outside on the gardened terrace on a very hot day but the fans and overhead canopies kept us shaded and comfortable.

Chef Loseto continues to amaze and surprise. The service - from beginning to end - was attentive, but not fawning. The server knew about both the food and the wine list. Most importantly, everyone was attentive to comfort, and an overall excellent experience. George Restaurant deserves to occupy an important place in the Toronto culinary scene. Thank you once again for making the dining experience truly memorable.

The food was simply fantastic; Canadian wine of very good level; service accurate and attentive; we were so lucky to have a good view on the large brigade de cuisine and it was great to admire the about twenty very young people so busy and precise in preparing in a perfect way so sophisticated food. It was my third time by the George and a complète confirmation of the excellence of the place.

At $160 for a 10 course tasting menu and given the quality and presentation it was a steal! However, the $110 wine pairing in comparison seems less of a bargain when a number of the wines came locally from Niagara and some from Austria. Maybe I am not much of a wine connoisseur to appreciate the rarity of the offered selection but at almost 70% of the food costs, I would expect something more powerful and memorable.

I took my girlfriend to George Restaurant for her birthday before we went to the opera. I originally selected the restaurant because they offered many vegetarian options for her and meat options for me and it was within walking distance of our hotel. Little did we know we were in for a perfect start to our evening. The décor was old European and everything was in place and perfect. They sat us on the patio among the plants and water. We were under a cover in case it rained and the patio was quiet enough for us to enjoy our conversation. The staff was excellent. They were all very helpful with selecting dishes and explaining what was in them. The food was exquisite! The flavors complimented each other and we both finished everything on our plates. The portions are the right size to allow you to try at least two items on the menu. The dessert was just as good as the meal and included a Happy Birthday note from the restaurant. We wouldn't have changed a thing and it was definitely a highlight of our trip.

The food was fantastic. We had both the meat and vegetarian 7 course option at our table and they were excellent. In fact this is the best restaurant vegetarian food I have had in the city to-date. The service was very courteous and highly professional. The Patio is a great setting too.

This was a celebratory dinner for my wife and her friends. They simply loved their meal. The food was incredible, and they all mentioned how the service was some of the best that they have received in all of Toronto. Two of the guests were vegetarian, and they really appreciated how wonderful and creative their meal was. They could not stop talking about their night when I caught up with them the next day - thank you to GM Mark Parnega, and his entire team for making their experience one to remember!

I was disappointed by the service last night. There was no offer for help with wine selection (and I ordered two bottles.) There was a long wait between course one and two and when food was dropped at the table there was no presentation of what was on the plate, which usually happens. My general feeling was that there was no care in the dining experience - which feels very off for George restaurant. I have been to George two other times and both times the service was exceptional and made the experience great.
