At George, they try hard. They seem committed to improving the food experience. And, they do a good job. Dishes are tasty, attractive, and varied. But they aren't really special. And, at these prices, I expect them to be. Which is the Toronto conundrum. Am I going there because of what I'll accept or what I expect? For me, I expect more from George.

Arrogant and un-compassionate management and feels they are above the common people.
First time for us and we looked at lot of reviews to pick George. Nice interior, good server. Picked chef's special 5 course tasting menu and 4th course got a hair in the bean gravy with steak. Server took the meal back and had the general manager bring another similar steak and said sorry and walked away and by that time my apetite was done. At the very least talk to your customer and help understand their current state and then determine next steps. It soured the taste for us, we paid our $330 meal for 2 and came back little disappointed, it seems this is pretty common in this restaurant and they think its ok. Way to ruin someone's special evening.
Came home and I am writing next day this blog, my wife got food poisoning and have been nauseated all night and have fever. That just gets to me and hence the review.

We walked to this restaurant after seeing an opera matinee at the Four Seasons Centre. The atmosphere is inviting, the food is delicious, and the service is wonderful. George is a real jewel.

We went to George for our anniversary and had the 7 course tasting menu. Everything was delicious, perfectly cooked, and like nothing we've had at any other restaurant. Myself and my fiancee each got different dishes so we could each try a wider variety of food. My fiancee is also allergic to shellfish and they were very accommodating. The service was excellent and waiters were very attentive. Yes, it is expensive but it was a unique experience for us on a special occasion.

Service was excellent as was the food. Just a little pricey for me to eat there regularly.
The decor was nice and cozy.
