On a lovely mid-May evening we sat outdoors with a loud fountain and, mercifully, no music as background. Service was perfectly attentive while not overbearing, and the food was delicious. The duck appetizer was tasty, salads were ordinary, but the halibut and the beef tenderloin were perfectly done and wonderful. Highly recommended.

While visiting Toronto, my girlfriend and I, went to George Restaurant, we decided to opt for the 7 course tasting menu. Being foodies we were really excited to get to try many different plates (each course, we both received a different plate). We were disappointed by the descriptions from the wait staff, the plate description was very rehearsed and it... More

The reviews are true. The is an amazing restaurant. Service is very attentive (our waiter Donald was outstanding). The food is inventive and delicious and very fresh. Wonderful halibut and good wine selection. Definitely will come back.

From opening the door to enter you realise that this restuarant understands fine dining . The ambiance is delightful and the service is good . We loved the 7 course degestation menu and the quality of the food was first rate. The wine list is really well balanced . The only element that took away from the night was one... More

Most memorable lunch we've had anywhere in the world. Beautiful place, perfect menu, knowledgable and attentive staff with time to talk, huge wine list. Don Draper Old Fashioned cocktails recommended!

Booked the G1 Room at George for 25 people for my boyfriends birthday. I don't know where to begin on how poor the experience was at this restaurant. This was our first time here, and maybe it's a great spot for couples, but for large groups don't bother wasting your time or money. It really is a shame. Below is... More

The restaurant had an a la carte and tasting menu (5 or more courses). They requested that all members from the table either order a la carte or from the tasting menu. We chose the tasting menu. The tasting menu was blind (all chef's choice) and only altered for food allergies. This was good, but not spectacular and did not... More

I will start out by saying that George has a beautiful layout with a very European feel. The service was excellent and the staff were all very courteous. However, must say that overall the quality of the food was underwhelming. Salad was overdressed, meat was cool and overcooked, and overall just underwhelming. I really wanted to like George and hope... More

Just like the attached hotel (Ivy at Verity) - classy but done up in a more masculine style. The food was excellent. The wife and I had the five course tasting menu; it was a different menu for each of us so we tried 10 dishes in all. Amuse-bouches, appetizers and two main courses were creative and delicious, and so... More

Every time I go there I'm in heaven enjoying the food and wines at George. The tasting menu is to die for. I love introducing other food lovers. Every time they ask me how I came to discover it and to wonder they haven't tried it/heard of it before. If you are in TO and love food - a must... More
