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.

Impeccable service, superb tasting menu, and to top it off my date and I had distinctly different tasting courses so we were able to taste one another's dishes. Foie gras, boar, tenderloin, all delicious! A wonderful Barbera D'Alba went well with all.

Awesome! We went there for my husband's birthday. We loved the three course tasting lunch menu, chef's signature. The courses are 'surprises' that the waiter describes and explains. Neither of us received the same dish. Taste was delicious! Very flavorfoul food. We had tartare, lamb, steak and amazing desserts. All dishes combined tasty sauces and exotic tastes. Chef was very kind and sent us a complimentary dish.

Service was very helpful. We went there with our 4 months old baby and they accomodate everything for our stroller to fit in. Service was friendly, attentive and professional. It was an amazing food experience.

Only thing I regret is that we wanted the chef to chat with us for a bit since we were the only ones at the restaurant on a monday at 1:30pm.

Having dined at George some time ago, and being delighted, my husband and I eagerly anticipated a wonderful meal.
Sadly, anything but ensued.
The underwhelming courses of food were followed by the most Pedestrian matched wines
we would Not encourage people to dine here.

Loved our table, closest to kitchen, we got to see all the action. Even a mirror on ceiling which was tilted to see right into kitchen. Server was awesome! Very helpful and knowledgeable. Drinks were delicious! 7 course tasting menu was good, but overall underwhelming. I would go back to try something from the a la crate menu.

As a long time vegetarian I was a little disappointed with the tasting menu...the flavours were good but it was quite boring. I felt like I was eating a tasting menu designed by a meat lover with little knowledge or creativity of vegetarian cuisine it would have been nice to see some risk and variety. The regular tasting menu however was on point with meat and seafood cooked to perfection and what my partners tells me was a perfect balance of flavour. The cheese plates were exquisite and the wine parring near perfect.

So surprised to find an unfriendly hostess who showed us to the worst table in the house which was located next to a fire hose. When I asked to find another table, she directed us to a cramped table with a view of the kitchen for me and my husband staring at the fire hose. All during the evening, I watches as she guided couples to other less desirable tables and when we left the more open feeling tables were still empty. I had made the reservation a month in advance and I told the Hostess that it was my birthday. The wonderful food and table service were dampened by the hostile and the able location.

Our reservation was for 9 and we waited about 15-20 minutes until we were seated at our table. Our intention was to do the 10-course tasting menu, but our waiter Lukas explained that it was a 4 hour tasting menu and that they closed at 10pm. I wish that was written somewhere before I had made the reservation because I wouldn't have made it otherwise. Regardless, he spoke with the chef and they said they could do the 7-course tasting menu for us instead of the 5-course one which obviously took less time. We were very grateful for that.

It was also never written anywhere that the tasting menu was a different dish for each guest. It was surprising at first, but we decided to eat half of our plates in order to let the other person try every course. So I guess technically we had a 14-course meal!

The dishes were hit or miss for us. The foie gras and meat courses were delicious. I also had two cocktails and my friend had 3 glasses of wine. Lukas was very knowledgable about which wine to recommend next for her. He also gave us our first drinks on the house for the misunderstanding about the tasting menu, as well as a glass of champagne to end our night. He was very kind and quick to take away our plates when we had both finished. We had a few different staff bring our dishes out to us, and all of them were very polite and did a solid job of explaining the mouthful of ingredients that went into every dish.

The atmosphere was more on the older crowd side, with a few young couples thrown in here and there. Definitely a nice spot to wear your fancy clothes, but it didn't give off an arrogant vibe at all. We spent about $220 each, so it's definitely more of a special occasion kind of place. The food was good, but it will be a while before I return because there wasn't really anything that I would absolutely return for in an instant. Still an enjoyable experience overall.

Went while on a business trip to Toronto when I was trying to impress a client. Selected the five course tasting menu which actually meant 10 dishes, because they brought a different dish for each course for each of us. The food was insanely tasty, interesting preparation, beautifully presented. Very rich but the portions are small so it's not overwhelming. It's pricey but I would recommend for a special night out.

Vegetarianism often means you've got a wide selection at specialty vegetarian spots, which tend to be pretty casual. If you're looking for something special there is often only one or two options available to you on the menu. Not so with George! My partner and I celebrated our 5th anniversary with the 7-course vegetarian tasting menu, and it was terrific. Not only did we get a wide array of beautiful and delicious dishes, but most courses saw us each getting unique dishes. With some (slightly uncouth) passing of plates, we each effectively got 14 dishes to try. Coupled with terrific service and a wonderful wine selection, George is a must-do for vegetarians looking to celebrate.

Amazing food and amazing service. The tasting menu was delectable and the service from Robert and Ian was top notch. We incorporated the wine pairing with our tasting menu and it was a great idea as we got to try fantastic, rare wines from around the world that really complimented our meals. There was clearly alot of thought put into the entire dining experience. 5 stars and I've already recommended George to a friend of mine that shares our love for great restaurants.

My partner and I visited Toronto for our anniversary, and visiting George was a definitive high point! We both ordered the seven-course tasting menu, which was very reasonably priced for the amount of skillfully-crafted, creative, and mouthwatering food we received. We each received different dishes for each course, which we loved--the food itself was incredible, but getting to sample each other's plates and discuss our experiences added an extra layer of novelty. All the plates were portioned and paced expertly, and we left raving about the foie gras course, our cheese plates, and the amazing creativity of every dish we had. Dessert was especially thoughtful, since our plates came with a "Happy anniversary" greeting! By the end of our two-hour experience (which felt like the perfect length for this dinner), we felt comfortably full and very impressed.

The restaurant itself has a romantic and comfortable atmosphere--we were seated in a quiet booth, which was the perfect location for a conversation over food. Our server was incredibly attentive, and each course was presented to us by a different, knowledgeable member of the waitstaff. We appreciated that the tasting menu could be customized based on dietary restrictions and preferences, even though we didn't make use of this option ourselves. We also chose not to order the wine pairing, though adjacent tables seemed to be enjoying their experiences.

Following our dinner, my partner declared that George was "the best food" they've ever experienced. I agree that the novelty, tastiness, and skill of these dishes was well worth the drive up to Canada. I would highly recommend this restaurant--don't hesitate to splurge on the tasting menu!

This was our 2nd time going to George. Once again the service was exceptional. My wife has a dietary restriction so I emailed them to ask some questions. They replyed within 30 mins and went out of thier way to make sure we could enjoy our meal. Once we arrived the waitstaff was friendley and attentive. We did the tasting menu, and we were very impressed by their abilty to match great tasting wine with even better tasting food. We drove 2 hours and booked a hotel just to come back to George and it was worth every penny.

Highly recommend this place.
