 (Toronto)·Dined on February 10, 2018

One word: superb. Service is attentive but unobtrusive. We enjoyed a meal of four courses each. All recommendations by our server were spot on. Definitely try the crab or caviar for the 1st course. The lobster and foie gras were immensely flavourful with a well rounded finish. Most moist yet cooked salmon main we have ever tasted. The milk and cookie dessert was both creative and balanced - the simplicity of the dessert's name does not do it justice. Just order it.

We enjoyed the calm atmosphere with the sounds of the live lobby bar music filtering in without being overpowering. Bosk definitely deserves to be on everyone's shortlist.

Celebrated my wife’s birthday at Bosk. The food was delicious and service was fantastic. They forgot to mention to our waiter that it was my wife’s birthday. When the dessert came out it didn’t come with a candle or Happy birthday written in chocolate, however, our waiter Anthony quickly rectified the issue and not only brought my wife another dessert with a candle, he also poured us complimentary champagne. Overall, I highly recommend Bosk to anyone.

Everything was amazing from ambience to food. I went with my girls for a dinner date and we were welcomed with a complimentary wine. Food was amazing with different pairings of wine. I loved every bit of it. Will be back soon

The best servers and the best food I’ve eaten so far, I’ve been to many other restaurants such as Canoe, Tundra, and Arriba. By far, this has been one of the best experiences so far.

Keep up the good work,
Thomas Le

Was a lovely lunch. Good service and a beautiful place.

Just a Heads up. There is a 2.50$ surcharge of water on the bill and they automatically add tip of 18% regardless of party size.

The food was great and the presentation was excellent. I ordered the Arctic char appetizer with duck as the main course and they both were done with perfection. The place did not disappoint me for my first visit. I will definitely come back another time.

Had a great benny brunch with bottomless mimosas. Brunch menu was straight-forward -- most of the cost seems to come from the mimosas, so I would recommend making the most of that option!

The food at brunch was very good but not spectacular. A little imagination required for healthier options that are still at a high level of presentation. Best part of brunch was the celeriac soup. Mimosas were good but could have been amazing if fruit purée used for the pineapple for example. Less options but real purée.
The cappuccino was extra, too expensive ($7), and not very good. The espresso was weak tasting or else the frothed milk was not in proportion. In any event I didn’t finish it. Had one at home afterwards on my Nespresso machine.

The service was wonderful from reception, to seating, serving all courses. Made to feel very special. Well cared for experience. Serving staff are well trained. Made the visit so pleasant.

So nice to have a cab hailedfor us by the doorman. Wonderful hotel.

On my niece's recommendation we came here for our anniversary. The restaurant is off the lobby bar which is very loud and busy. The restaurant was less busy on the night we were there and conversation was possible. The service was very attentive and friendly. My husband had the celeriac soup and the halibut, both of which he loved. I had the kale salad and the salmon. Also very good. The portions were not huge but were adequate.
We had dessert- the pudding. It was delicious. They had even written out on the plates "Happy Anniversary" in chocolate. When we received our bill, we were told that our dessert and coffee were gratis- to thank us for celebrating our anniversary there. Very special.

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!

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 :)
