    They had reservation time slots but the place was nearly empty except for the family when the kid jumping up and down on a piece of furniture. Doors leading directly into the restaurant were locked, as if they didn't want people coming in. Then after walking through the hotel to get in, was informed that they weren't accepting card payments and I had to either have a room at the hotel or use the ATM. Was so glad I drove 30 minutes for this experience.

    We were there during restaurant week. For a Saturday night they were understaffed. They had one waitress, a manager and maybe a hostess serving meals for 60 people. The food was likely cooked in advance and held in a steam table, definitely not cooked to order. The brown gravy was utilized for the short ribs and the lamb and was overpowering in both instances. The gravy tasted like it was made from a powdered mix. The food was overpriced at $55 per person. The wine pairing offered was only 2 oz of wine per course. The service was poor. The waitress did try to make it up to us by reducing our bill by one meal. It was a disappointment because we went there based on the published menu which sounded promising. We will not be going there to eat again.

    We were forgotten after placing our order. Server never came back to check on us. We waited a long while after we finished our meals. I had to get up and walk up to the bar, where the manager, server and I guess the bartender was standing around chatting, meanwhile we were not acknowledged. There were other customers sitting around the bar that needed assistance while drinking and dining and they were having to hunt down an employee to assist. Restaurant staff needs to wake up and start taking care of their customers. It's not kind to ignore you're customers. There should always be at least 2 staff members in the dining room to assist customers that walk up. There is No excuse for this. Changing the menu often with different soups, appetizers and Entrees would be nice. Also adult drinks menu. Seems like it's the same all the time. Lobster bisque soup, lobster and crab appetizers and Entree containing Fish and or some seafood. It's gets very boring when the menu doesn't change.

    Borealis is a quaint restaurant with great food and great service. The cocktails were also delicious. It's a gem in the Hyatt Regency in Aurora, CO
