Our party of 4 returned as soon as we could after lockdown. Our favourite Cambridge area restaurant. We were so very happy to be back, and to enjoy our time at Borealis. We live 5-10 minutes away, and and son and his wife come from Georgetown. Thank you Borealis.
Excellent as always!
Glad to see you back open!!!
I will see you again soon :-)
Thank you Kathy! We are so happy to be back open and to welcome guests to our patio again. It was a pleasure to serve you!
Went for a birthday dinner and had an absolutely perfect evening!!!
Great to see such attention to COVID precautions. We were greeted promptly and our table was ready!
My Sauvignon blanc was served chilled nicely and really hit the spot on such a warm evening
We had the turkey burger and the beef burger both served as ordered ver generous portions
Tried the quinoa and arugula salad was a great addition to the meal!!
Hot applesauce cake for dessert was yummy!
Very appreciative of such great service!! No “rusty” people working at Borealis
Thank you so much for your kind words- we're blushing! Cheers to many more perfect evenings on the patio!
We had a great server Tiffany who was responsive when we had a concern and very available and friendly.
The food was tasty and the patio well spaced from other diners.
Thank you so much for joining us this opening weekend! Tiffany is a valued member on our team, and we're so excited to have her back!
Only 4 cocktails on menu, 3/4 contain berries which are a popular allergen. I was not able to order a cocktail due to my allergy and their limited options. Other than that everything was fantastic!
So happy you enjoyed your experience with us as we reopened for service after lockdown! Come in again soon, our cocktail list will evolve further into the patio season. Also, our creative bartenders are always happy to whip something special up for you to accommodate your taste or allergies/food preferences! Cheers!
The staff were amazing. Very friendly and working hard. Doing everything they could to give us a great experience.
Thanks for a great dinner!!!
So happy you enjoyed your dining experience with us! We can not wait to have you back soon!
Was a good experience. Sat in a room to the left of entrance ambiance of that room didn’t seem as nice as the bar or back room from past experiences. Table was sticky, and banquet seat both needed to be refinished/reupholstered. Food was good, and service was great!
We have always had an amazing experience. Great service and food every time. Thank you.
Excellent food and friendly service. Great atmosphere!
Great food and service as always!
The server recommended the special which was beyond delicious!
Wonderful experience. Some great food. Staff was great.
Very good experience................................
Excellent service. Great food. Nice to visit the restaurant in person again.
Thank you! It's so nice to have more guests join us again!
Always an excellent meal at Borealis! Service was fantastic and we had a great time. Can't wait for our next meal there!
It was fantastic
All the staff I was in contact with were very nice! The food was delicious. I will be returning in the future for sure!
This was my second time here. My first experience was by far better. We were seated near the door and the door was open so a little cool and the ambiance felt cold and intrusive. No nice for a fancy date night. Both entrees were terribly disappointing. My chicken breast was small, the mushroom sauce was good but there were no vegetables or spinach as stated on the menu. I asked to substitute roasted potatoes for fries which were saturated in grease and I could not eat them. My boyfriend’s beef was mostly fat. He normally enjoys the fat on meat so for him to not enjoy it says something. Food was very slow coming out.
Great food and service. Had a super time on the patio with a space heater to keep us toasty and very good local beer.
great service, lovely food, really enjoyed the locally sourced menu
Great food, amazing staff! This is our favourite place to dine out!
Good food great service. Definitely will return
I had a great date night with my wife. The food and the staff were great there.
Seemed like a very long wait time for limited patrons visiting restaurant. Portion size for my burger was very disappointing for what I paid for it, compared to other establishments.
Our server made the experience a 5. Great guy from italy named Luigi 👍😃
Thank you Lisa!
I am a fan of supporting local and always enjoy my dining experience at Borealis Grille. Servers are always amazing! We will be back soon!
Thank you so much Francesca!
We were greeted with pleasure, seated on time. Service was great and they accommodated special needs diet without complaint or extra cost. We go quite often and it’s consistent.....love it!
Thank you Judy!
The steak and fries were amazing and service was great.
It was terrific to be back for lunch. Great staff, food and a feeling of almost normal.
Thank you so much Joan!
Great local food. Brie with bacon jam was amazing. Will definitely good back.....
We agree- the baked brie with bacon jam appetizer is delicious!
A quaint, quiet, and delicious grill with several ethically sourced options for a fantastic meal and date.
Thank you so much!
Friendly staff and delicious food for a great price! Will definitely be coming back!
Thank you Zuzanna!
We love this little spot and appreciate that it tries so hard to be local.
Food is always unique and flavourful. A fun place to go.
Great experience. Meal was delicious and service was fast and friendly!
Thank you Olivia!
We had a reservation for 3 people. One of the 3 didnt have anywhere to leave her two small kids. So of course they wouldn’t let her in (i get it, 10 people max). About 30 min later a grandparent took the kids over and she was almost at the restaurant when we were told her seat was given to someone else. So she ended up going back home. Service 👎👎👎👎👎
Thank you for taking the time to share your feedback Gordana. We agree the way the timing worked out for your reservation was unfortunate. After confirming with you that your third guest would not be able to make it, we accepted another reservation at that time putting us at capacity. Hopefully our current situation due to government regulations changes for the better soon so we are in a more suitable position to be more flexible.
Great food and an amazing staff! Very attentive!
Check out this place and support local.
Thank you Brenda!
We were treated royally. We mentioned we were on our honeymoon and the General Manager, Dave Brown went out of his way to make our evening memorable.
The food was excellent so we would recommend this restaurant to anyone wanting a great meal at a reasonable price.
Thank you Harold, we're so pleased you had a great honeymoon meal! Dave is a gem, and we're lucky to have him leading our team! Cheers!
This was a birthday lunch after the region opened to "Red". From the moment we arrived we were welcomed by Amazing staff.
Our server was amazing and let us stay past the 1.5 hours time limit because no one was waiting for a table. For two Mom's, this was life after a challenging year. We really enjoyed ourselves and will be back based on this visit alone. Thank you for being kind, funny and accommodating. We appreciate you!!
Thank you Sheryl! We're delighted we were able to accommodate you being able to spend some extra time out of the house and enjoying yourself!
Was good. Soup was served cold but was quickly removed and reheated. Service was great.
Thank you Jennifer!
We all know that it's quiet because of circumstances beyond our control. I loved the food, our waitress was phenomenal! Food was so delicious not to mention my delicious sangria.
Thank you for making my covid dinner fantastic.
Thank you Rebeca! We're looking forward to when we can have our "buzz" back!
