Very disappointed that there was only a $65 or $80 tasting

Amazing food and service. We had the 10 course tasting menus and it was nicely paired with wine by the knowledgeable sommelier. Our server Enzo was great and remembered us from 3 years ago . Also very good COVID protocols. Highly recommend this restaurant

Despite the pandemic and the cold, the restaurant experience was perfection. The set up was beautiful, with warm plush throws on each chair as well as blankets for each person. There were also many space heaters , so you were well sheltered from the cold. The service was impeccable and the food was unlike anything I’ve ever eaten! Was truly a special night and look forward to visiting again for a special occasion.

Great night out, it was 6 degrees but cozy enough at George . a good buzz and a great dinner. As good as it will get in this partial lockdown . If you have want of a special night out you'll have a hard time doing better.

We went to George to celebrate my birthday. The ambience was great with the small waterfall at the side. The courtyard patio was heated and everyone got a blanket to keep warm. Service was fabulous and each and everyone of the staff were attentive. The food was delicious and plating was gorgeous. I felt incredibly safe and the restaurant clearly had taken all of the precautions. Would highly recommend

We were celebrating a birthday and went for lunch on a beautiful Friday afternoon in October. We had the tasting menu with wine pairings and every single course was absolutely amazing. Service was excellent and highly recommend going to eat on George’s patio which is absolutely socially distanced and safe

One of the most outstanding dinners of my life. They have truly made the very best of a bad situation (Covid pandemic) and created a spectacular warm, cozy and elegant dining space. Each bite of the food in the 5 course tasting menu was a taste of heaven. The sommelier Chris was fantastic. Everything from start to finish was perfection and beauty.

My husband and I celebrated both our birthdays and our anniversary on Oct 13, 14&15 and decided that George would be the perfect place to celebrate everything together. We choose the 5 course sampler menu. All courses were a surprise and it did not disappoint. We absolutely loved our special evening there and couldn’t recommend this place enough. Thanks for making our celebration so special

We celebrated our anniversary and ate off the vegetarian menu which was super delish. Presentation was outstanding. Also had a look at meat menu and it looked good. It also stated that all fish was caught in very sustainable way. Which is great. My only question is why is foie gras included in this menu. It represents the most awful animal abuse and have been banned in many places around the world. It is a 2000 year old practice that just needs to go away. Looking forward to hearing from you on the subject. Thank you for the lovely evening.

We have searched many cities for a food experience even close to our experience at George. We got the 10 course tasting menu and were surprised that each of us got a different dish for each course so we shared each plate and got to enjoy the amazing flavours of 20 dishes. The flavour combinations were delectable and all the proteins were cooked to perfection. Our server recalled seeing us from our prior visit and to our amazement the chef changed a few of the dishes so we would have an even better experience than the last. If Michelin Stars were available in Canada George should have 3 stars based on our culinary experiences at restaurants in New York and Europe. Can not wait until our next visit.

We had the 7 course tasting menu with wine pairing, it was exceptional. Each plate was a surprise and a work of art. Definitely a must for people who love imaginative food with diverse flavours. We went 8 years ago for our anniversary, went again this year; we may make it an annual event. We stayed at the Ivy at Verity Hotel which is connected to the restaurant, very convenient.

We tried the 7 course tasting menu. The presentation on everything was beautiful but overall fell short in terms of how bold the flavors were. Don't get me wrong, everything was incredible. But I've had other tasting menus elsewhere and it felt like the chef for this one couldn't really figure out what flavor he was trying to bring out in the dish. I'm no food reviewer but I didn't notice any bold flavors, as an average joe coming here for my wedding anniversary, we really enjoyed George and the atmosphere but like the tasting menu we did last year far more than this one. My only complaint with noise was that we could hear what sounded like a 90's fax machine/printer and it turned out to be the receipt printer in the back. It was very loud and probably could stand to be upgraded.

All in all, 4/5 from us. I recommend this place, the 7 course menu will fill you up by the 4th plate so come hungry.

Thanks
