Food was interesting and nicely prepared and presented.
Our server, Kevin, two nights in a row, was a lovely addition to our evening!
We had a drink at the bar, and Chris who served our drinks was a “hit” with us as well!
We would definitely return to drink/dine here!

Booked Bosk for a birthday brunch. Food and drinks were great but service was terrible and dampened our celebrations. Our server Eugene wasn’t attentive and completely unaware of any social queues. The place wasn’t busy at all (there were two other parties of 2 seated inside) so it was disappointing to get such poor service. Eugene also didn’t acknowledge that we had booked this for a special occasion and everything about service was mediocre. We cut our brunch short and decided to go elsewhere instead. Disappointed, accustomed to better customer service at the Shangri-La.

First time at bosk, other than high tea in the lounge. The service was great! It was quick and courteous and professional. The food (we had lamb with thick noodles dish) as our main and it was highly recommended. We both loved it! Great portion and the food came in a very timely manner.

Beautiful night of food and drink but dishes are small and agregiously overpriced. If I wasn't paying I would return. 200 per person is excessive.

Bosk is better for afternoon tea or for dinner, especially on the patio outdoors, than for lunch. The lighting was too dark as well, but the service was very good. Valet parking was expensive, so most of our group just took the TTC subway to Osgoode station.

The scallop dish was awesome! they were one of the largest size of scallops i've had before. perfectly seared. The lamb was really good as well, very moist and the skin on top was surprisingly crispy.

My wife and I visit many rated restaurants around the world. The service was outstanding, casual yet precise and the food was interesting and well done/balanced. We had the tasting menu paired with the wine and it was a very nice experience. Not as special as some of the 2 or 3 star places...but our experience left us feeling well fed, taken care of and happy.

Both my husband and I ordered the Tuna rice salad, I forgot the name of it. The portion was generous and the taste was great. It is very refreshing especially in a hot summer day.

We celebrated a birthday here and had the excellent 9-course tasting menu. So many delicious dishes served by very friendly and knowledgeable staff made the evening a total pleasure. Excellent wine list featuring some great local wines too. Will definitely be back, well done Shangri-La.

Time we spend overall is worthy. The main dish 40 days aging beef is outstanding! But the cocktail bird on wire tasted not good. The server came by understand my concern and able to change it to something else.

We will return and visit again!

Very impressed. Beautifully presented food, tasty and interesting. Service was outstanding (JC I think). Great cocktail. Only slight negative is the menu is a bit limited. Would have liked a couple of more choices. However - still a great experience and will return.

Everything was absolutely lovely until the music was turned up so loudly, we couldn’t hear each other at our tables. Thankfully, our server must have relayed our request to turn down the music. Not appropriate to have ear-splitting music before 7pm. We were enroute to the opera. Other than that, quite lovely. Nota Bene recommended your resto to us when it was closed for a private function. We’ll happily return when we can linger over your delicious food!

The best experience!
So in love with warm plates. Chicken meat is tender and beef is juicy. Scallops have crisp outside but soft inside and lobster is also a good choice. Because it’s our anniversary so they gave us an extra dessert and a gift. Service is perfect. Definitely a great choice!

Just an outstanding time. We both had the oysters which were small (always the best) and sweet with a great Chablis to set it up (an Incredible compliment to the sea). Then I had this unbelievable chicken. Wow. I wish I could replicate this at home but not likely. Breast .perfect. Garlick source. OMG. My partner had the rack of Ontario lamb. What an incredible cut. That said, next time I would ask to have the beautiful fat rendered further to a better crisp.
These are details. This is an outstanding spot. . The service is also just top class. Highly recommended

Nice and clean restaurant with friendly staff though not very giving of information. Presentation of food was very nice though hot food didn’t come hot. Restaurant has a nerve to charge $5 for water without informing guests that there is a charge especially when they don’t present a bottle.
