A fantastic spot with friendly and attentive staff. Food is incredible and beautifully presented.
It’s certainly not like I remember 😟
Food quality is poor. Sadly the Fish was too greasy. I would not recommend for a night out. More just a lunch place.
My parents, sister and I brought my daughter here to celebrate her 6th birthday. It was all of our first time dining here, and we were all so impressed with everything! The food was INCREDIBLE, value was great, and our server, Connie, was outstanding. Will absolutely be returning, and recommending to my friends!
We had reserved a table yet they put us at the worst table Next to the door for outside dining. We froze and were everyone’s way. We mentioned it to the waitress and she said she would get the hostess. Of course they never showed up. The short rib have more fat on it than meat.
Was a good time , loved that it was all local food and drinks.
A great meal and experience once again. This time to celebrate a friend’s birthday. We all had the same meal - chicken sandwich (my fav), and dessert - pumpkin pie crème brûlée- 😋 Thank you Borealis
Thank you for choosing us for such a special occasion! We look forward to seeing you again soon.
Fabulous food and ambiance. I strongly recommend!
Our server Luigi was excellent!!! The ambience and atmosphere was lovely. Due to the high ceilings it can be very loud. There were only a handful of people in the room we were in but if one table burst into laughter you could not hear anything at our table. Some of our group enjoyed their food more than others. I have been to Borealis a few times and I have never “loved” the food. It’s good but I have had better and this time was no exception. Great location and great service and perfect for large groups.
Lovely place, great ambiance. We had the specialty burgers, they were a good size and very tasty. Highly recommend.
So glad you enjoyed the burgers. I'll let our beef supplier Bryan know!
Great experience and great food!
burger of the day was very tasty, along with a salad, no room for dessert.
Great good, value, atmosphere, and friendly staff
The food was excellent and the servers were very polite
We had a reservation but when we arrived there were no tables. So right from the start it was not very inviting. The service was not that great. The food was good. They did not remember the special occasion.
As always this was a pleasant experience. The only issue was the dining room on the main floor. I lacks the charm and character of the space upstairs.
Mike is an excellent, attentive server!
Simply excellent! Everything was as expected and delicious!
Had a salad which was really good and shared a peach/ricotta/basil flatbread. It was just a bit overbaked. Other than that, no complaints.
Great food at a reasonable price!
Mike was very kind and helpful. Great service and food.
For no fault of its own, the restaurant doesn't feel like a restaurant any more. The social distancing of the tables and the complete lack of atmosphere are really sad. Luigi our waiter was terrific.
Hopefully when the pandemic is behind us Borealis can get back to being the great restaurant it was in the past!
Our meals were delicious and our waiter was fantastic.
Food was good. Burger was a little salty and ceasar salad was too heavy with croutons but overall good. Service was excellent. Atmosphere was good.
Sat on the bar side, had amazing service and the nachos are the best! Great beers too
Caesar salad great - nachos good - linguini with trout tasteless and had to pour hot sauce all over it to give it some flavour
Our server was quite pre-oocupied with the table of ladies beside us. It made for great drama however our drinks did arrive until our food did. Although the food was probably faster than usual. Overall it was a fun experience with fantastic food.
Excellent as always. 🙏. Happy to show our vaccine status 😊
Nice setting for the area, feels like you’re out of the city.
Great as always... Accomodated table location request
We had an excellent meal on the patio, which was a little chilly, but they turned on and positioned heaters and we were very comfortable. The food is always tasty and the location is very convenient.
I had the trout special and it was excellent. The dish arrived hot, was nicely seasoned and cooked to perfection. This is one that I would highly recommend.
Service was wonderful, food was fantastic! A little pricey but overall great experience!
Excellent, fresh food and great service!
Our waitress Connie did a really great job and was put in the awkward position of having to apologize for the kitchen forgetting to make our order. The food was good, once it arrived. For a dinner out, the value is good. The ambience kind of suffers due to the COVID restrictions.
Great service and great tasting food. It seemed like the portion sizes were a little small. But that could just be the food that we ordered.
Food is fresh, local, and very tasty. Fried chicken is the best I've ever had!
Food was delicious and Luigi (our Italian waiter) was very passionate about the food!
Service was very friendly and professional. Food was very good but had to send one order back due to lots of fat and gristle on short rib. No issues as another piece was brought out quickly.
Borealis never disappoints! Always fantastic food and amazing service.
