We had a very good time, food was amazing. We had the 10 courses menu with wine pairing.
Things that would have made the experience impeccable:
- Masks made comprehension of the explanations for the dishes difficult. Having some small cards explaining each the dish would have been appreciated.
- We all felt there was too much food, quantity-wise, what we received over the first 7 dishes would have been better. Maybe it’s a matter of perspective/opinions, but my expectations for tasting menus is that it’s an overall experience which includes managing quantities where on the guest side deciding between 5, 7 or 10 dishes is not about more or less quantity but about more discoveries to make. Same for the wine pairing, quantity for one wine pairing for two was enough.
- The overall ambiance was a bit too bustling to my taste, I feel a slightly “cosier” ambiance would have been nice.
But this to say, this was great, not perfect, but I would definitely come back.

Outstanding service and seafood tasting menu!! Noise level a little bit high because of large groups dining together. Perhaps separate couples to quieter spots in the restaurant. Definitely will continue to go back and would recommend to anyone looking for superb creative food!!

We went to George with our friends because we had been there in the summer and LOVED it. This time things were disappointing. The noise and crowd made it difficult to hear our friends when they were talking. We opted for the seven course menu, and the first three courses were cold fish. Couldn’t they have brought one non dish dish, and have one of the fish dishes be warm? The main was a tiny portion of lamb which was underdone as we as some sort of fowl which was rubbery. Dessert was brought and eaten before we were offered coffee or tea, which made dessert not as nice as I’d hoped.

I wish our meal had been as stellar as in the summer. We won’t be returning for a long time. 😢

Extremely happy with everything! The service and food was amazing and impeccable. Highly recommend! It got quite loud by 8pm, so next time we might come for the earliest service. But even with that, it was an amazing experience.

My husband and I chose this restaurant to celebrate a special occasion . We were not disappointed. The tasting menu was creative and tasty. The service was attentive and friendly. It was a perfect evening. We took our time and we’re not rushed in any way. We would recommend this establishment in a heartbeat.

We had the 10 course tasting menu ($175 with wine pairings ($115 extra) all 10 courses come with wine. 5 and 7 course menus also available. The sommelier came to the table and explained each wine pairing very well and their enthusiasm for wine was apparent. At George the courses are blind meaning there is no menu / you do not know what they will be in advance. If you are dining with another person they get a different course/wine pairing. The plating was beautiful and the pics do not do them justice. As we were celebrating we received complimentary champagne to start the meal which was a thoughtful touch. Bread was also served. No butter but the bread was moist and flavorful on its own. There were some crisps were quite nice. The first 5 courses were seafood and primarily served raw / cold 1- Tuna / Octopus ( the octopus was very nice ) 2-Swordfish / Hamachi 3 - Salmon / Salmon 4- Scallop / Rabbit 5- Lobster Salad (gorgeous presentation and very nice ) / Tuna Tartare - for me personally 1 cold seafood dish max would have been enough - i dont mind seafood but hot dishes would have been preferred. Keep this in mind when dining here. 6- Sweetbread with fois gras ( this had a lovely pecan tart ) / Squab 7- Beef / Lamb. 8- cheese course 9 and 10 dessert - the last dessert was paired with a 30 year old sweet wine ambiance was nice and tables were dressed with white linens. Overall a nice experience.

We love this restaurant. We have visited many times. The last occasion was in the back patio under sheepskin and heated lamps right in the middle of this crazy pandemic. This occasion we were inside and as always the service and food was impeccable. George is one of our favourite restaurants in Toronto.

Good restaurant with plenty of ambiance and good service. They don’t clean off the table after each service and they charge for bread which is fine but no butter. Service was consistent but impersonal. Food was delicious but I won’t remember what I ate in a day. Each seafood dish of the 7 plate tasting seems to mold into one in my memory. Overall a nice experience but I wouldn’t rush back.

We once again had the vegetarian tasting menu for two. Each of us got a different dish for each of the five courses, so ten unique creations in all. Just YUM. So many interesting flavour combinations.

We got the fixed 7 course menu with wine pairing.....each dish during each course was different so adding the amuse bouche, we had 16 different dishes - all were beautifully plated, tasted incredible and were very well paired with wine from around the world by an enthusiasitc, experienced sommelier. Always love George!!! They are back!! And they are better than ever!

I almost never leave reviews but I have to say, not only was this the worst tasting menu I’ve ever had, but some of the worst food. I’m not sure how George has remained on the Toronto 10 best and if you love food, perhaps try a la carte/ spend your money elsewhere

Individually, the components of each plate were interesting, but together, it was completely confusing. Eg a cold ginger carrot sauce covering a seared foie. The tasting menu was far too experimental (like a kitchen sink approach), dishes came out of order (fish following amuse bouche), and my partner and I had kept getting different plates, meaning we had to keep trading back and forth.

The servers and host were lovely people but the food just doesn’t cut it at all. We almost left halfway through the meal but couldn’t bear to for $150/ head.
