The food I order was over cooked the hash brown and too much salt. The bread and butter was nice the soup but also the waiter which started with us never come back after he took our order and our main course came very late and other people that where seat after came first.

Thank you Shangri-La! It was our first time dining with you & we will be back. Your great service, exquisite menu & beautiful ambiance made it a special night to remember. It was my fiancé & I’s birthday and you surprised us with a delicious dessert each to top it all off. The bar scene was great to lounge after & listen to some great music. Thank you, thank you, thank you.

Booked the restaurant to celebrate our anniversary and I indicated this in my reservation, however looks like that aspect was ignored. The restaurant didn’t do anything special so don’t know the point of indicative reason for the booking. Food needs improvement but the service was good.

An enjoyable pre-theatre dining experience which came with a surprise dessert replacement (chocolate). Thanks to great service we were in and out in 90 minutes without feeling rushed.

The waitress and server were not able to recall each guest’s order for a table of 6 when there were fewer than 5 tables. Food is still great but service is underwhelming at best.

Decided on this restaurant after viewing the menu online and we were prepared for what would be a great meal based on what we had seen online. Except they had changed the menu 3 days earlier and not bothered to update the website with the new menu. So, not only did the new menu not have what we wanted, we were recommended a side and when our mains came, they forgot it. Further, the wine list was sub-par given the prices charged per glass. Overall, not impressed and certainly not worth the money versus other restaurants in other cities (or Toronto for that matter).

BOSK is our go-to restaurant for a pre-theatre dinner. It's just steps away from the Four Seasons, so that makes it especially convenient. But what brings us back time and again is the combination of pleasant, professional service (all the staff are great, but if I had to single anyone out, it's Sydney -- he's a fantastic waiter) and really imaginative and deftly prepared dishes. One day I really do have to eat there at a normal hour (we usually arrive at 5:45 pm -- crazy early) and experience a proper evening devoted to dinner and dinner alone. The quality of the food alone is enough temptation!

Overall - meh.

Got seated in the very back corner (which is fine) but we were surrounded by large, loud parties and dirty tables. The tables around us stayed dirty for over 2 hrs!
Our view was dirty tables, the waiter on his cell phone and the bussing station.
Service was slow, slow, slow. Everything took forever making the dinner almost 3 hours.
Food was blah. Pea Soup was great, octopus was so tough and flavourless. I have a feeling it sat under a heat lamp. The course between the soup and octopus took approx. 45mins.
Salmon was fantastic, lamb was also great.
Dessert was dessert.
The $95 price point was great so I guess you get what you pay for.
Would I go here again? No
Would I recommend it? No

I was most impressed with the rib steak I had. I seldom bother to order a steak in Toronto because they are usually a waste of time and money compared with the beef we eat at home. Glad I took chance at BOSK!

Service was terrible..... had to ask to order a drink after sitting for 10 min.... had to ask for bread, 10 min after we ordered our meals a waiter came to our table and said, are you ready to order now! Brutal....had to ask to have my dirty plates taken away from me, before I threw them on the floor they brought the wrong sides with our meals had to ask for desert menu had to finally ask for our bill so we could end the painful experience....we don’t even know who our waiter was .... 4 different people were serving out table.... nice way to spend your anniversary and spend $350! Won’t waste my time or money there again....

First appetizer is too salty for me and my date. The scallop and the chicken in the third and fifth picture is perfect with their excellent food quality and the way they were made. Their signature dry-aged steak (fourth) is ok maybe above average, since my requirement for steak is ridiculously high. Dessert was peach ice-cream and pumpkin pie with rice ice-cream and it was the best pumpkin dessert I’ve ever had. Service is not perfect but good. Prices are fair. Overall it worth a try.

Our dinner lasted almost 3 hours, mainly because the waiting time between courses was excessive. The service was attentive but often sluggish, even for simple requests like a dessert menu. Food was delicious, hearty, and quite creative, but at times, too rich and salty for my taste. Overall for the value and service, the meal for a special occasion was good, but not exceptional for such a world-class hotel brand.

Need to open up their street entrances to the restaurant rather than force everyone coming from the south to double back through the hotel entrance on the north side of the block. Not clear where to enter from the intersection at the street. Otherwise, great resto.

The staff at Bosk are very professional and courteous. The food is excellent and well plated. I went there for a business lunch and was seated beside a wall, so I lost the experience of enjoying this nice restaurant. It would have been nice to sit somewhere else given it wasn't too busy. They could have asked. Otherwise, the calamari was excellent, the fish sandwich was tasty, and the chocolate dessert was perfect. Enjoy.

My son’s dinner treat before heading black to university. Very poor, inattentive service, cold fries with burger and steak, steak over cooked and dry, asked for more jus which came when almost done, “warm” toffee cake was cold. Swinging door to kitchen kept open and all we heard and saw was kitchen activity, server preoccupied despite dining room being almost empty. Hugely disappointing miserable experience not deserving of our time or money!
