How disappointing. A MEAL THAT COSTS MORE THAN $100/PERSON and purports to be fine dining experience should include pleasant ambience and top notch service. If that is the definition of fine dining, then this restaurant fails miserably. Lovely, superb food served in a loft-style space, ruined by loud rock music from a live band in the restaurant's party room right... More

We had dinner on the patio at George and can't say enough about it. The outdoor space is a must for the summer in Toronto. Tucked away in the back of the restaurant (we didn't even know it was there until friends told us), it is absolutely gorgeous. A long fountain, umbrellas that light up with lamps and twinkling lights... More

This is an amazing place for a romantic dinner. It's quite pricey, but the service and the quality of the ingredients and creativity of the chef are really worth it. I had the vegan discovery menu and was really blown away. The wine and Champagne were very good. We were lucky to get a reservation on short notice, we had... More

I dined at George back in December on my first trip to Toronto. Coming from NYC I didn't expect to be blown away, but I have to admit... It was the best dining experience I've had in over a year!!!! The food was phenomenal (taste, presentation, ingredients) with an extensive vegetarian menu. Our server, Philip, was fantastic (he was friendly... More

Brilliant and Inspired, that's how I would describe the dishes at George. We celebrated our friends anniversary at George and we are so happy that we did. 6 of us all had the tasting menu (2 Vegeterians, 4 carnivores) and Incredible is the only way to describe the dishes. We were all served different dishes for each serving and each... More

There are only so many food groups, but the kitchen seems to have an organic sense of ingredients and puts out amazing dishes that dazzle. Combinations that appear so simple are taken to dimensions unimaginable. Food is amazing. Great wine and drink list, great vibe and ambiance, service is very good. Pricey, but well worth it.

We enjoyed an excellent tasting menu which was exquisite and surprisingly affordable. Excellent service and a friendly hostess did an excellent job of setting the tone for our splendid evening.

We booked for early dinner and had a 5 courses menu. Pros: The portion are quite big ( European standards). Extensive wine list. Very creative and delicious food. Very knowledgeable waiter. Great settings. Perfect to celebrate a special event. Cons: a bit expensive. Not very cosy.

Staying in Downtown

Neighborhood Profile
Downtown
At the heart of Toronto, Downtown is the destination for cheap eats and fast fashion. Cut through by hip and trendy Yonge Street, the vibe here is young, with a strong student influence from the Ryerson University Campus. As a result, the Downtown area is always in flux: undergoing the construction of new facilities, with fresh retail spaces and pop-up cafes. Home to Toronto's largest indoor shopping mall, a number of vintage cinemas, and a healthy nightlife centered on the area's Distillery District bar and clubs near the East End, it's both an easygoing daytime spot and a popular party place after sunset. It also features some of Toronto's best outdoor landmarks, including Yonge-Dundas Square and the Nathan Phillips Square: perfect for a concert, a skate, or a relaxing sit-down.
