I must say- the best experience at a restaurant TO DATE!
If you happen to be in the area, and get served by Luigi, you will NOT be disappointed, the man is a legend!
Celebrating my birthday. Cocktails were great, server was great, 2 out of three meals were great. Not one to complain about food as I do not wish to ruin anyone's evening out. I had the fried chicken which I have had before. It is normally to die for, juicy and crispy! This time it was juicy and crispy, but too crispy. The buttermilk coating was almost burnt tasting. Really dark dark. I had to take off all the "burnt" pieces to enjoy the chicken, which defeats the purpose of buttermilk fried chicken.
Also noticed the menu selections have been drastically reduced. Maybe a covid thing?
Can't wait to return, just thought I would let the staff know about the over done chicken.
Everything was so good here and so fresh. I will definitely be coming back.
Our server Luigi was wonderful, as always! My chicken sandwich was phenomenal! The Tom Thompson room is beautiful! It's always a great place for date night!
Delicious food. Luigi is the very best server!!! Thank you!
Great time and service. Very informative friendly staff
New falafel salad is a great new addition to the menu!
Sat on the patio. Didn’t care for the wooden bench or the uncomfortable chairs. The food was good. The server (Connie) was excellent
Great food, great service…something for everyone.
We were greeted warmly. Our server was cheerful and fun.
My husband I shared an order of cornbread to start. It was so delicious.
We both had the Pickerel Dinner and enjoyed every bite.
Friendly staff, amazing food prepared with fresh local ingredients
Good service and great flavours. Seems slightly overpriced.
Really enjoyed our lunch on the patio! Staff were all very friendly, Ernesto, our server was great, food was yummy (great buttermilk chicken and tasty fries). See you again soon:)
So glad you enjoyed! The buttermilk fried chicken is a favourite around here (and so is Ernesto)!
My son and I enjoyed a nice dinner here outside.
The restaurant was well organized and the staff was attentive and friendly. People with and without reservations were being treated respectfully and kindly. The food was great, too
Thank you Sara! Your feedback means a lot to us!
Lunch was slow in coming. 1 pm lunch didn't come for almost 45 mins.
Hi Candy, thank you for sending in your feedback. That timing is outside of our usual standard, so we will have to look further into that with our team and address any issues. We look forward to seeing you again.
It was outside cause of covid so understandable it was a little noisy.
Everyone was amazing the date was a success and we had a great time. The staff was amazing and very helpful. Visited borealis a few times now and each time has been great. Also the food has been at a high standard every time, very delicious. The chicken supreme was a great dish I enjoyed it. I highly recommend this restaurant too many of my friends
Smokey burger was amazing! My wife’s turkey burger disappointed: partially burnt; and cherry tomatoes kept falling out. We’ll definitely return and recommend the restaurant to others but she wouldn’t order it again.
Wonderful staff and service. Enjoyed a night out on their patio. Great food and lovely to hear the voices of other patrons having a great time also.
Good food great service special shout-out-to our server Luigi he was great and very pleasant
Great staff, very accommodating, delicious food 10/10 would return
Loved sitting on the patio with friends I haven’t seen in months because of Covid. Our meals were delicious, the service was excellent and the atmosphere was lovely. Thank you for giving us a great night!
Great meal as always. I REALLY enjoyed the coleslaw with the fish and chips, it was a little different to usual and I preferred it - delicious 😋Chris was s great server 😊
Beer batter chicken a must have and has been a favourite of mine for years.
Great service and GREAT staff!!! The food is ALWAYS excellent!!! Just need more Luigi!!! Lol!!!
Fish Tacos were amazing. Outdoor patio is large and even though it’s in the parking lot, we didn’t notice cars in motion. Service was fantastic. Highly recommend.
Great spot! Really enjoyed - good for work meetings
Staff all super friendly. Food tasted great! Loved the patio experience to celebrate our 9th wedding anniversary.
Great food & fun with friends. If you have Luigi as your server, you can never go wrong!
Luigi our waiter was amazing as were all the staff.our drinks were weak and very small for the price.
Falafel salad was fabulous but again, a very light layer of greens.
It was more of a starter to be honest.
Excellent service start to finish, had to wait for a table but hostess was very good at keeping us updated on it (we expected to wait during covid), ultimately it was worth it to be seated on the beautiful patio. First time dining out since the pandemic started and we were made to feel very welcomed and safe.
Excellent fried chicken!
Food was delicious, service excellent, tables well-spaced. Thank you!
It's a bit expensive, but worth it. The food was fantastic. Had a lovely anniversary dinner with my husband
Awesome to go out on a patio again!! Food was great and easy to make reso. They followed all guidelines.
Our experience at this establishment has always been satisfying. The portions fair the flavours diverse making the experience delightful. Your wait.staff is engaging and spontaneous very exceptional service.
Great service from Louigi. Made for a fun atmosphere. In light of the covid restrictions, it was a great atmosphere. Glad we were on the main patio.
Alie was an amazing server, she was helpful, fun and brought everything at the perfect time. Loved it will be back hopefully I can get her again
Everything was great and I will definitely be going again
Really great food and service, can't wait to be able to enjoy inside the restaurant again. Will definitely go back.
Our time at Borealis is always spectacular. It was our first meal out since before the pandemic, and the staff were fantastic with keeping things safe on their patio. It was the perfect place to visit on a Friday night.
