This felt like having breakfast in the lobby of a utilitarian 3* hotel. The food was on point but that's about it. Coffee, mimosas were pretty bad. Tea was 'meh'. Service was extremely poor, super inexcusable considering the restaurant wasn't crowded at all. We were using up Shangri-La points but I wouldn't bother otherwise. In fact, I'll use my Shangri-La points elsewhere next time.

Nice space, looks fancy, customer service is good but nothing over the top - text-book complaint (fill water, ask if everything is ok, say thank you, say have a good night, bye..)
Was expecting a little bit better in the food - for a good tasting menu usually I would finish everything on the dish, garnishes and sauces included. I left a piece of swordfish...was a little salty...also comes with asparagus (in the winter?? couldn't pick another vegetable?) ate half of my toffee dessert, was a little too sweet. Come to think of it, we were never offered tea/coffee, would've needed one for sure. Black truffle agnolotti was good.

You know bosk as a good place for dinner, and as having an outstanding wine cellar. My partner and I went for breakfast today, and were blown away. The food was stellar, service impeccable, and there was a vibrant early-morning business-meeting scene going on. I'll be back personally for future business breakfasts, and simply for the great food!

We sat at the outdoor winter patio. It had fireplaces and heated blankets. It was a beautiful setting. Drinks were a little pricey tho. $25 tax and tip included.

The three and four-course prix fixe options are great value considering the quality of the food, which was delicious. Our server was friendly and knowledgeable but also left us alone to chat. And we were not rushed and were able to take our time and enjoy everything. The restaurant got noisier as it got busier, but we were still able to hear each other talk.

The server was excellent. The restaurant has great ambiance and feels comfortable. I had the greens for starter. It was ok. For second course the foie gras was delicious. I had the beef dish for the main course and I have to say I've had better. Asked for medium rare but I was served rare. Some of the garnish was burnt which made the sauce taste bitter. Dessert was milk and cookies which was excellent. Wine list is mot that extensive but it's fine. Overall though it was a very enjoyable experience and again our server was top notch.

Amazing food and amazing service! Our waiter, Kevin was so sweet! He gave us a surprise dessert for our anniversary. But the funny thing was we didn’t tell them the dinner was to celebrate our wedding anniversary! Somehow he knew! He is so wonderful! Thank you Kevin! You’ve made our night extra special!

I always love coming here. They have the best servers and the food never disappoints. They have a patio as well which they heat in the winter sometimes. Its right by The Four Seasons for Performing Arts, so its great for pre/post show meal or drinks. The hotel is beautiful and the spa is one of the best in Toronto, so you can make a whole staycation in this one hotel. Can't say enough - this spot is great :)

Bosk never disappoints, fresh ingredients, molecular touches, artistic presentation in vibrant surroundings.

I was a regular for 3 years, then left Canada, returned and I am still remembered by staff and management. Looking for ward to my next visit to Toronto.

Anniversary dinner, very sweet gesture at the end where they brought out a perfect dessert with happy anniversary on it! Service was excellent, the hostess greeted us very well and wished us a happy anniversary as soon as she seated us and our server Jean Michel was super friendly and attentive. Very good food and ambiance! They made us feel very special! Can't wait to come back here!! Excellent experience.

Had a wonderful dinner there on August 3. Menu selection was very good and the special price for 3 and 4 courses was a nice touch. All items are listed on 1 menu which was easy to read and decide. Food was very well presented and the servings were just right.
Definitely would return

It is the first time after Bosk changes its menu. It is very good experience. Especially the Foie Gras. The new foie gras is much much better than the old version. Highly recommended.

My three girlfriends and I had a wonderful experience dining at BOSK for Summerlicious. Our server took great care to describe all of the options on the menu while including a few recommendations of his own. He was attentive and enthusiastic throughout. The food far exceeded our expectations, especially for a Summerlicious menu! We've come to expect service and/or quality to suffer during this time of the year and didn't feel any of that. We were not pushed to leave, and felt comfortable chatting long after our dinner service was done. Our waiter even came to refill water for several hours after our dessert had been served. A truly memorable experience and a world class hotel.

One of my favourite restaurant in Toronto, however, this time with our Summerlicious menu, I was a bit disappointed on the chicken and the mushroom dish.
The chicken should be presented like a piece of chicken, instead the meat was pressed into a rectangular shape. I know the Chef tried to be creative but it didn't worked for me. Mushroom was overly salty.
The presentation was definitely creative, with great service as usual.
My friend and I should have order the Tuna instead.
Thank you Chef for trying.
