Everything was great, but the restaurant is a bit "loud" for any sort of quiet or confidential conversation.

Great service. Our waitress offerred us the table buffer for breakfast because our entrees took longer than expected. It was a great experience for my party. Everything tasted unique, and the healthier options were tasty as well. Hope the waffles were thicker, otherwise, all other menu items we ordered were excellent. Must come again!

I go to Bosk often and they never fail to impress. We were a group of 3 friends and did their 4-course menu which was at a great price point with amazing selections. The cocktails were VERY good and the service was top notch. Love both brunch and dinner here!

The price was high. The service was slow (even though the place was nearly empty). The food was mediocre to poor. For examle, my wife's dish included a hash brown and a waffle that were both dried out to the point that they shattered when you put a fork in them. For this price, I expect a lot more.

Our waitress, as well as everyone who assisted her were great. We were really impressed with with Vegan menu options. Unfortunately, a man was seated next to us on his phone conducting business and crawled under the table to plug in his phone, which was annoying. We will return.

I attended the winterlicious dinner 2019 and I loved the dining experience. The food was delicious, all the courses were well prepared and presented. We were briefed about the contents of our dish on presenting our plate, by the server, like most of the upscale restaurants. The Smoked Potato Salad - Broccolini, Celery, Guanciale, Buttermilk Dressing was different and delicious. I loved the way it was put together. It wasn't salty at all, which is a key thing to my taste buds. I love fish to be cooked at the prefect texture, but something was not right about the cod. It was perfectly seared, on the top, with light crumbs but at the bottom, it felt a bit off. Not sure, if this was the way the fish was supposed to be cooked. Other than the fish, our overall experience was excellent. I enjoy dining at the Bosk.

Nice food and service, definitely will recommend friends to come. We had 4 people but sit in a small table for two with a lot of big empty tables left. Arrangement was not ideal and the price was a bit high for the food.

My second dining experience with Bosk was a very memorable one on Chinese New Year’s Eve. The Winterlicious menu offered plenty of choices and the food was delicious! I went with the wine pairings with the 3-course dinner which was great value for money. Our server Lauren was attentive and accommodating. Overall a wonderful experience to celebrate Chinese New Year!

Went for winterlicious 2019, food was lovely and tasted great. I enjoyed the duck entree the most, the duck was seasoned and cooked superbly and the crunchiness of the parsip pastry was interesting. Our waiter was attentive and helpful when deciding on items or choices. I would probably go again for a special occasion as the drinks are expensive. $18+ for a cocktail.

The last two years winterlicious menu are quite impressive, but this year make me quite disappointed, too plaine not creative, making you feel not having the food in a five star hotel, the trout is pan fried with side dish of four whole pok choy, seasoned only with salt, all you can taste is salty,salty, the presentation of the plate looks poor

We made the reservation with Open Table and received a confirmation number, when we arrived at Bosk, they had no record of the reservation under our name or the confirmation #, it was very awkward! Fortunately, the restaurant could accommodate a walk in request.

The service was amazing! Everyone was really attentive and polite. 10/10 customer service. The food was amazing as well. Starting with bread and butter MY GOSH It was unlike anything I've ever tasted. It was like a bun with the many spices. For dinner I had the soup and steak with a potato puree. Then for dessert I had the cinnamon raisin toffee (mouth watering). For my drink, the titiki, hands down one of the best mixed drinks I've ever had for that price. They really know what they're doing there!

Great restaurant. Incredible atmosphere and tasteful decor. Kevin, our server, was very knowledgeable and friendly and made for a fantastic guide through the tasting menu which we could customize to accommodate dietary restrictions unlike many other places. Food was truly exceptional. Thank you to Kevin and the entire team for a wonderful birthday dinner. We’ll be back!

My husband and I went before the symphony and ordered off the 3-course prix fixe pre-theatre menu which was of great value and a nice trim version of the full menu. The restaurant is beautiful and since we were there so early, it was quite relative to the bustling lobby. The bread and cinnamon butter was addictive. We both started with the squash soup which was hot and wonderfully flavoured with savoury granola. We both had the duck confit as a main which we thoroughly enjoyed. The duck leg was hot and crisp, tender and perfectly seasoned. The accompaniment of kale, white bean and turnip left something to be desired. It felt as though something was missing in pulling them together, whether it was seasoning or the fact that I was expecting them to have been cooked together but it felt like they were each put on the plate individually. The roasted potato side was perfectly done. My husband had a dulce cheesecake with espresso ice cream for dessert that he thoroughly enjoyed - from one bite I would agree. My dessert was a bit disappointing. Sticky toffee pudding with poached pears, walnuts and ginger ice cream. The ginger ice cream was great as was the pudding, however there were a few walnuts that seemed a bit more burnt that was intended on purpose, lending a bitter flavour to the toffee sauce. The wait staff were exceptionally attentive, kind and very considerate of our timeline. I would definitely return given that overall it was a lovely and yummy experience.
