I had heard a lot about George prior to going mostly that it was great but a bit stodgy….which could not be further from the truth. This place is spectacular! From the time you arrive they are amazingly accommodating. We enjoyed a pre-dinner cocktail on the stunning patio. We where then seated at a table near the front well away... More

My husband and I celebrated my birthday here. What a treat!!!!! Everything about our dinner was an experience! From our fabulous cocktails to the 7+ tasting meal. Each course was a small surprise of taste and presentation. We kept saying that each course was the best and nothing could beat it. Then along comes the next course....EVEN BETTER!!!!! The service...

George Restaurant has a good reputation and deservedly so. Being allergic to milk and anything dairy can pose a problem when eating out, so I phoned and spoke to the chef before going to the restaurant. He prepared a superb menu for me, which the sommelier matched with an assortment of wines. The meal began with an amuse-bouche of a... More

Probably one of the best meals I have ever had! We got the seven course tasting menu with wine pairings for our four year anniversary and it was delicious. All of the food was high quality with great flavours. We each got a separate seven courses (they can do this for up to 5 people depending on how busy they... More

George is one of those few restaurants that gets it right, right across the board. Two visits, one for a lengthy and successful business lunch, another for a romantic dinner for two hungry lovers, has revealed that this place knows it's business. So often I wince at a misstep of service during an otherwise great meal - not here. In... More

One of Canada's premier restaurants by reputation, George delivered everything as promised. I had a self-constructed menu of "pork three ways" sampling each of three pork (including wild boar) dishes on the menu. All were beautifully presented and each provided a unique perspective on how pork might be creatively prepared. Had a glass of asyrtiko to accompany, and wrapped up... More

One of the outstanding tasting menu restaurants in Town, had been there three times this year already so far. Extraordinary taste combined with variety presentation. The cook did prepare the dishes with a lot of heart. Highly recommend for any occasion but only for a small group.

My fiance had just proposed the other night and had a car pick us up for a surprise engagement dinner here. We were seated at an incredibly romantic and private table for two, it's obvious their host team pays good attention to requests and reservation notes. There was even a curtain we could draw for privacy. We both opted for... More

I had dinner with these folks while attending meetings in Toronto. We were a relatively large group, so the evening began with cocktails on their patio. Dinner was served steps away in a private room. The meals were prepared and presented well and all seemed to enjoy their meals regardless of what they ordered. All in all a very enjoyable... More

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.
