We enjoyed the food and service but the temporary outdoor set up right beside the road made for lousy ambiance and a very noisy dinner. Why not set it up on the other side of the building away from the road?

Excellent food and service. We knew that the patio would have much street noise, and it did, but we appreciate being able to make online reservations for either patio or indoor dining.

Our server was outstanding. She was courteous and respectful, careful not to interrupt our conversation. Very rare, very appreciated.
Food and beer were excellent. Big umbrella provided good shade.

The best thing about this restaurant was that it was quiet for chatting with friends. Three of four meals were just ok. The waiter forgot something we asked for. Service was polite and reasonably prompt.

Amazing service, order came to table in perfect timing. Taste of the food was melting in your mouth.
First restaurant I’ve been back to for dining since the lockdown and this will be one of the most memorable experiences.

Outstanding service!! It poured rain, and while we were comfy and dry under our umbrella, the servers continued to run through the downpour to service guests!!! Food was phenomenal as always. Our server was able to place a to go order for me that was ready at the perfect time as we were leaving. Can’t wait to return!

Delicious food and server was wonderful. Very accomodating and alternative gluten free flatbread and bun options for customers with Celiac's disease. Just wished my trout piece was a bit bigger but it was delicious none the less.

Hostess was bar far the best for a long time, and enjoyed 6 hours of patio time with three separate guests - a business afternoon made special with good people, good food, and attentive care. Thank you!

Every time we come to Borealis Guelph we have an amazing experience! The staff are super friendly and accommodating, the food all tastes fantastic, and the restaurant is overall a lovely place to sit down for a meal. The patio spaces they have created are lovely for outdoor dining!
