    My daughter and I totally enjoyed our girls night out at George. A 10 course tasting menu isn't for the weak of appetite but we soldiered on and savored each delicious bite. There was great variety of dishes both in taste and texture. Our table was nicely located against the wall with comfortable booth seats. We enjoyed the privacy and quiet this afforded. To top off a wonderful experience, we loved our server, Rob, who was friendly without being cloying, efficient, informative and all an round pleasure to meet.

    We have been going to George for over 10 years. It seems to be going through some kind of Renaissance at the moment, Chef Lorenzo has always been a genius, but there is a certain level of quality that has been unlocked since my most recent visits. Last night’s meal was easily the best that we have had.

    We set our reservation for 5:30 when they opened because we were doing the 10 course tasting menu for my partner's birthday. The meal took about 3-4 hours, which is pretty standard for this type of tasting menu, and during this time the service was impeccable. The staff were extremely professional, but warm. They checked in but didn't linger too much, which was nice. I also noticed that they asked each table if they were celebrating something and the last course would be a little special dish, with Happy Birthday, for example. That was a sweet touch. In terms of the food, the Chef tailors each dish to the person, so when the waiter asks for preferences and restrictions I would suggest to be as open as possible for an optimal experience. With the 10 course tasting menu we tried a total of 23 different dishes, as there was a little starter and cheese portion. The food was very interesting and delicious. It is not for everyone as there was a lot of combinations that are not found everywhere. However, it was a wonderful experience and I would recommend this restaurant to anyone who is interested in trying a variety of delectable foods and unique pairings.

    Excellent food, especially when you select the tasing menu with wine pairing. Staff that answers to your concerns (e.g., special table), and a sommelier who truly understands wine. Certainly, not a cheap meal, but you truly get what you pay for!

    Just strange. Our party ordered two bottles of the same wine. One for now and one to open to decant later. Sommelier asked if we actually wanted to open the second bottle now and told them not to, that we want to switch wines. She then proceeds to open the second bottle in front of us? We asked why she didn’t ask if she was unsure and just said she didn’t want to interrupt? Waiter came over to see what we wanted to do and said we can help them out and have the second bottle but we didn’t really want to. So they billed us for both bottles, didn’t comp anything or bring champagne or do anything and just left a weird taste in our mouths. Food is solid, dessert great. Sommelier was off and a manager probably should have been involved. $400 error should be elevated higher than wait staff. Also for the tasting menu everyone got it but gave half the people different dishes. Everyone was kind of left wanting what the other people were having. I get what they are going for but it was more strange than effective. The enjoyment to discuss food together is part of the fun. One of our party got the vegetarian tasting menu and twice was given the wrong dish. Was also never explained what their dish was unless we specifically prodded the waiters to explain it. All other dishes were explained in great detail. Because of those reasons we are probably not rushing back any time soon.

    The experience at George was the best experience I have ever had. From the dinner tasting to the service. This completely opened up a perspective on food I never had before. After this life changing experience how I view food will never be the same. This has opened up a door of possibilities until now never new existed. I am forever grateful for the experience at George that will forever live in my mind and on my pallet. Thank you.

    We are by no means gourmet critics or attend only Michelin star restaurants, but our group of 6 was unanimous: This was a top 5 restaurant experience... ever. Not just in Toronto. Maybe we hit the tasting menu on a great night for the chef and kitchen... but every dish was exceptional. The service (Kimberley) was fantastic. Could not have been more happy. And my 80 yr old mother could hear the conversation, which was important as well. When she told me later that it was a special night, that was heartwarming. Bravo George!

    Did the 7 course tasting menu. And it was almost too much food. Every dish was beautiful and delicious. Our server was fantastic and attentive and everyone we came in contact with was friendly and knowledgeable about the dishes and the wine pairings. Our sommelier was a wealth of knowledge and each pairing was like a fun class.

    Excellent high-end restaurant to go to enjoy rich and delicious food! The service, I found particularly good - my waiter was proud of his profession, and it shows. It was a pleasure to be served by such a knowledgeable and competent server. The atmosphere is upscale, trendy, and appropriate. Music in the background was quiet enough that it didn't force conversations louder, but was still present enough to fill the quiet spaces of conversation. In terms of them getting that Michelin Star that they want though, I would give them an A+ for effort but agree that it would not be deserving. Why are all of the dishes so complex? How can I be served 7 courses, yet not one I actually 'know' what I am eating apart from the main protein...which has been described upon placement? Why is the corner of one of the curtains stained and not appropriately cleaned? Why do the washroom lights have a thin film of dust on them? Things like this. Tiny errors, yes, but they add up -especially when the bar is so high. No matter, I certainly look forward to when life finds me an excuse to book another visit at George. There is no question that I will be a return customer.

    Our favorite date night spot! The food, wine and service is always fantastic. Had cocktails upstairs first and the new bartender is a true professional. Chris hosted us for dinner and made sure we were well taken care of. His service and knowledge is definitely Michelin Star worthy. Thank you to the entire George team for a memorable evening!

    For amazing food and great value George should be on your list of restaurants to experience. The restaurant is housed in a historical building – an 1850’s restored Chocolate Factory. The restaurant’s interior is elegant and intimate creating the perfect backdrop for dining. The quality of the food and service is superb. The cuisine is creative and delicious and is served by professional and attentive staff. There are different tasting experiences that you can choose. Our party of 4 decided to have the 20thAnniversary Series which is being offered from January 2024 to April 2024 (Tuesday to Friday). This tasting experience consists of a three-course dinner plus a pre cocktail and snacks for $99 per person. Our cocktails at Secrette were innovative and the snacks were delicious. For our three-course menu we started with the Tuna Tartare which was beautifully prepared and presented and creative in the choice of accompaniments. Our next course was a Beef Ribeye which was perfectly prepared and delicious as were the accompaniments. Our last dish was a delightful lemon tart which was creatively presented. For our choice of wine, we decided to try a wine from Croatia (Lasina). Thanks to the Sommelier for assisting us with our choice. Besides the inspired and innovative dishes by Chef Lorenzo, there is another plus and that is the staff. Ryan, our server helped to make our dining experience a memorable one; his friendly, attentive service and professional manner were appreciated. From the food to the staff this is one restaurant that does not disappoint. For those of you who have not tried George, this is one dining experience you do not want to miss. We look forward to our next dining experience at George.

    I have been here a few times and this is one of my favourite places to eat. I love the concept of a tasting menu. The portions are really nice and the food is spectacular. I have never had a less than perfect plate. The service is top shelf. A truly wonderful dining experience.
