This is by far one of the best restaurants to dine at for a special event, such as an anniversary. I wouldn't say its pricey because you know what you're getting yourself into when you get a reservation at George. It's not an everyday dine, but amazing nonetheless. Definitely recommend this restaurant!

My wife and I went for our anniversary. To calibrate our opinion, we have spent highly on many event meals but this $300 bill was our highest and in the end, while excellent, it didn't seem worth it to us. For the food, we selected 6 small plates and 2 desserts which cost $160 instead of the 5 course tasting... More

George Restaurant is a gem in Toronto! We went there for our first year anniversary and were very impressed. The ambience was excellent - with outdoor patio seating. We tried the 5-course tasting menu and we loved every single dish. Service was attentive and not pretentious. This is a must-go for romantic dinners. We will come back definitely.

So 6 of us went out for my birthday. The experience was 4 hours for the 5 courses. This is NOT the place to go for a quick in and out. We experienced the 5 courses and we all had something different. First the food is exquisitely presented. The servers go into great detail over each plate - I've tried... More

Decided to try it because of the rave reviews went on a Saturday night at 8:30 pm figured it wouldn't be too busy. It was still pretty busy. Had the 5 course which was ok. However we had to wait so long in between courses we got pretty bored and impatient. Service is excellent and attentive. The time it took... More

Amazing spot... Only a couple blocks from Eaton Centre... Unfortunately the wrong way! But well worth the walk! What an amazing place... Best bar service I have had in Toronto and best tasting menu here! Really cool spot... You must go!

All the positive reviews have it right. 4 of us ordered the tasting menu and a couple bottles of wine. While not inexpensive, the food, service, and patio were great. The whole 2++ hour experience was well worth while.

From a food perspective, this was one of the finest meals we’ve ever had. We ordered the 5 course taste menu. The chef decides what to concoct; it’s mostly a surprise. One person in our party did request to avoid red meat. However, the waiter asked if wild boar would be okay; and this person reluctantly agreed it would be... More

maybe too much noise was made around this place; maybe too many recommendations..... place is cute, nice decor, open kitchen. Food is pretty ok but the speed is ETERNAL. The wine took long time and the wait between courses was TOOOO MUCH!!! Unbelievable enough my 6 year old doughtier´s dish was the best. Great cuisine but definitely over rated.

We came here as a part of our honeymoon visit to Toronto and Niagara. We were a little daunted by the prices at about $125 per head (incl tips) but the food was excellent and the service was really personable. It's definitely a once in a while type experience based on the cost but was worth it for us to... More
