We went to George for an early dinner before our show at the Elgin Theater. We are from Chicago and were in Toronto for a girl's weekend. My friends and I all had the 5-course vegetarian tasting menu and it was fabulous. They actually mix it up and we didn't all get the same dishes, so this meant we could all share and do even more tasting! I really enjoyed the food, I pretty much cleaned my plate for each course! Great flavors and variety of dishes, even when our dishes were similar they managed to make each one unique. The service was great and the wait staff were attentive. They got us out on time to get to our show. Fantastic experience! More

Afternoon Tea | Downtown / Financial District, Toronto

Spent the afternoon at Astor lounge experiencing their afternoon tea service. Food was wonderfully executed and well thought out, quality was excellent and one of the best in the city. Could only finish half and had to take the other half to go- 5 savory items, 4 sweet items and scones, served with jam, marmalade and clotted cream which were amazing. Just a few minor details missing, like having milk/ cream available for your pot of tea - We had to keep asking for cream for the table. Spoons weren't served with the strawberry triffle dessert so we opted for using our tea spoons instead of having to call our attendant over again. Likely because tea service is so new they are some small details missing but will definitely revisit - it was a thoroughly enjoyable experience! More

The food was excellent. I had the Miku Signature Sushi Selection plus the Pan Seared Scallops for appetizer. Both were superb. Each sushi was a pleasure sensation, and some of the best sushi that I have ever had. My wife had the Kyoto Saiko Miso Baked Sablefish and Kaiso Salad and found the Sablefish delicious. She didn't care for crunchy seaweed in her salad, but thought the flavors were good. We ended with Green Tea Opera and Chocolate Fondant for our desserts, and they did not disappoint. More

Continental | Downtown / Financial District, Toronto

For Mother's Day Queens Tea, we were seated in the bright, spacious, and stately ballroom adjoining the Victoria Cafe. Our party of 4 adults and one 4 year old were seated at a large round table with plenty of space. We were comfortable but also were able to have conversations easily with each other as there was no music and no noise in the space. The tables in the ballroom were nicely spaced apart too so it didn't feel crowded. After informing the staff in advance twice of my daughter's gluten-free diet, there was a mix up in communication on the day of the reservation which the wait and kitchen staff rectified on the spot. Communication and logistics between Open Table and the King Edward for Mother's Day tea reservations was a problem. Open table and the hotel are not in sync and caused me a lot of trouble in the 3 to 5 weeks up to my reservation with respect to the time for my reservation, the number in my party, both Open Table and the King Edward also sent me incorrect reservation confirmation emails 2 or 3 times. A big plus is how they accomodate children and babies easily for the Mother's Day Queen's Tea. They never made me feel guilty for bringing my child along which is the impression some can get in other places. More

Had another great lunch at the Bosk bar. The drinks menu is extensive and bar staff excellent. The shortened menu for food in the bar includes many plates that are ideal for sharing. Top tip - if you are a member of the Shangri-La Golden Circle points program, you can get about C$130 of value for trading in 1,000 GC points. By far the best way to use those points in my opinion!

Food was pretty good. I probably should have stuck with the moussaka — which I loved last time — over the game hen. The service was awesome! Our server was friendly and attentive, and when she overheard that I was celebrating my birthday she even quickly got me a free delicious dessert without hesitation. Even before the dessert I would have said “good service” but that extra kindness was literally the “icing on the cake” (or in this case the “ouzo chocolate mousse”). More

Celebrated my birthday with my family. Our server was attentive, hilarious and made amazing food choice suggestions. Started with the corn flatbread which was moist, fluffy yet a bit of crust on the outside. The sausage was outstanding. The turbot was cooked to perfection. Our sides of brussel sprouts and mashed potatoes were amazing! The steak was, quite honestly, the best steak I have ever had! More

We were recommended by some friends to check this place out and it was worth it. Casual/trendy small restaurant. We had the bone marrow and it was superb - would have loved a shot of liquor to wrap it up as I've had that at other restaurants, but I can't complain because it was very tasty. There was a group of women celebrating a birthday and given how small the space was, I thought they would be too loud or service would falter - they weren't and the service continued to be excellent. So I like this place and will return again. More

Always been a big fan. This time I arrived early for my reservation during their busy dinner rush. My date was running 20min late but the greeter had no issues seating me. My server kept me company by continually coming back to make small talk which made the time fly by versus sitting alone at a table nursing a drink. Food was great (always recommend the perogies) and almost every main I’ve tried has been perfection. Can not recommend enough. More
