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.

I’ve been here before for my anniversary and went back to celebrate Valentine’s Day! I have so many food restrictions and they tailored the menu to fit my needs! Service and ambiance is spectacular here! It serves to pay for a good meal

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.

It was Christmas Eve so kitchen was super busy and we waited quite a bit but the waiter was SUPER nice and attentive and was told that drinks was on them (due to the wait). Amazing service and food was very sophisticated in both flavour and texture. Superb quality and skill and my mother was highly impressed! A little complimentary treat at the end was delightful and would have bought a box full of them chocolates for take out! Great place for special occasions for sure. The only thing I would note would be that considering it’s Christmas Eve, they should have had musicians playing on stage with the grand piano... it was very quiet indeed... also there was a slight miscommunication as I was emailed the holiday menu but in fact it was only on the Christmas Day that they offered not the eve so we were a bit confused as to why they emailed me the holiday menu in the first place. But ya overall wonderful experience and will definitely be back!

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.

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.

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).
