The best restaurant in Toronto. Food is beautifully matched and presented. The place never disappoints. The service is exceptional. I never write reviews :). This is a Michelin star level restaurant.

I went to George with my family a few months ago... When we arrived we were shown our seats and then had to wait 20 minutes for our waiter. We put in our drink orders and then had to wait 30 minutes for our drinks......every interaction with out waiter was terrible. He was rude, unenthusiastic, had little knowledge of the menu, took forever to do his job and in general was the worst waiter I've ever had (I get better service at a McDonalds). After a long wait, we got our meals but the waiter didn't pass along some of our dietary restrictions so we had to send back some of the tasting menu dishes. The food, as always, was very good. That being said, I can no longer say George is my favourite restaurant in Toronto simply because of the poor service which ruined our dinner and also made it hard to enjoy the food. Hope George can fix this, but I will be taking my money to one of the many other fine dining restaurants in Toronto from now on.More

I went the other day for a girls dinner and was blown away. We sat on the patio which was stunning and had a lovely ambiance. The food was absolutely to die for!!! We ordered off the 5 course menu! Staff was so friendly and...helpful. My favourite part about this restaurant was the fancy yet comforting vibe I got looking around! Pricy but worth it!More

We were here for an anniversary dinner after Stage 3 re-opening. All staff and guests had to wear masks in all public areas. Extremely filling vegetarian 5 course to the point where when we weren't able to finish a dish, we had to actually ensure...that it was because of our limited appetite and nothing to do with the dish. From this, to their courteous service to wishing us for our anniversary (mentioned during reservation), the attention to detail was evident throught our dining. We absolutely loved it and look forward to celebrating another special ocassion there.More

Where to begin. We didn't like the table we were seated at and then couldn't do enough to move us to a great spot (Right next to a waterfall) Close the menu. This is not an "a la carte" restaurant. Just decide 5, 7 or...10 course meal. Wine pairing yes or no? We did the 7 course meal. Wine pairing just adds so much to the fun factor. We were 2 for a birthday celebration. Each course (Both of your foods and wine are different) comes with an explanation of what you are about to experience. The sommelier gives you a description of where the wine comes from and it's characteristics. So impressed with the age of the people bringing our plates and how polished and professional they are. When the dessert came it had happy birthday on the plate with no prompt other than on the reservation. This is not just dining. It's an experience with service and food the way you'd want it to be. I have never said this in any other review but George may be my favorite restaurant!More

Because of Covid, we haven’t been dining out, but it was my husband’s birthday and Stage three in Ontario ushered in the opening of restaurants. Even so, George has a patio so we booked. And it was fantastic. The patio is quiet, private and tables...were placed at least 3’ apart. I started with the lobster. As always, each mouthful is an opportunity to remind your senses how wonderful food can be, replete with flavours that colalesce in new and unusual ways. My husband’s tuna was rare but slightly warm, the Color gorgeous, the centre of an unimaginable bouquet of textures and tastes. We followed with the duck that was wrapped around a pastry of mushrooms. Again , you want to eat slowly, finding every hint, every suggestion of ingredients that are fresh and flavourful. He had wild boar and a magnificent agnolotti, wishing there had been another. For desert my deconstructed butter tart with cherries was the perfect ending to our celebration. He had lemon meringue that he also fully enjoyed. The menu has been pared down drastically with fewer offerings in each category. Yet the bar menu is as expansive as always.My rheisling was excellent, his cocktail beautiful. The chef here is a magician , knowing how and what to combine. We keep coming back and George never disappoints.More

Went to celebrate a belated bday. We went with the 5 course tasting menu. The food was very creative and tasted great. The service was top notch too. The patio is beautiful and very relaxed atmosphere. The only comment I have about the food is...the over use of mint. Mint was in all the dishes, and as I am not a huge fan of mint so for me it ruined the experience a little. The food was still delicious, and I recommend GeorgeMore

We just celebrated a dinner I planned for my cousins bachelorette. Where do I start? We were 14 and they suggested the Sand Room which was lovely (and Private which was fantastic for this size group). Our servers Chris & Alex were such a joy...to have as our personal servers and professional at the same time! I would highly recommend them. The ambiance was warm and elegant and happy. The Food: Our prefixed menu was spectacular. The beef tenderloin and ahi tuna were to die for!!! I would go back just for that. The portions were just the right amount, and the flavors were fresh and fabulous. All in all, it was a fantastic night and I am so glad we went with this restaurant.More

What the previous person said. You will find vegan. When you make your reservation, talk to them and they will figure it out.
