    Amazing meal (I had lamb, my boyfriend with tons of food allergies had chicken), good wine, nice servers/waiters. On top of that, it's a very nice and new neighborhood with a beautiful skating rink right next to the restaurant. It's now decorated for Christmas, looks magical.

    I was excited to come here to celebrate my birthday. The service was great and the ambiance is nice. The happy hour wine was such poor quality that we ended up getting a bottle instead as wine by the glass selection is very limited. The happy hour choices was nice and varied. I expected the Brussel sprouts to be the same size from off the happy hour menu however it came in a ramekin size bowl. So disappointing. The risotto was made with barley and we left most of it because of that. I had such high hopes for the evening and left really disappointed.

    FINALLY a GR8 restaurant in NW Calgary! Borough Bar + Grill beats out all the ho-hum franchise restaurants in the area. If you want top-chef food, a cosmopolitan atmosphere (with exceptional tableware & napkins) and the best service, this is the place for you. Tonight was a second visit to Borough and it won’t be our last! Luckily we arrived for the last 1/2 hour of Happy Hour (3-6pm) and were able to enjoy reduced prices for 2 out of 3 appetizers. We enjoyed the ROASTED MUSHROOM DIP (paid full price but simply had to have it again, it’s that good) plus the AHI TUNA CRUDO and the WARM PRETZEL. For mains, our party enjoyed the FUSILLI (4 stars), the CANNELLONI (5+ stars) w/ crab & shrimp, roasted peppers, roasted prawn bechamel sauce & the yummiest arugula salad, and the AAA Alberta FLATIRON (5 stars) w/ smoked potatoes, roasted asparagus & chimichurri. For dessert, we skipped the TRES LECHE this time (but would highly recommend it) and shared the CHOCOLATE MOUSSE CAKE with sponge toffee - a heavenly end to a fantastic meal served by an attentive server as well as the manager who unobtrusively kept coming by to check on us - don’t usually get that level of service these days! PS: By 7pm Tuesday, the place was full (except for a few small tables) so the word must be getting out that this is THE PLACE to go in the new University District, NW Calgary.

    For the second time this group tried to seat us in area we did not reserve in. Getting tired of their excuses that “open table” was the problem. Food was mediocre, staff did credit us for entree that was not acceptable and and gave us gift certificates. They did go out of their way to rectify the issues.

    This is my second visit to Borough Bar and find the food I've had really interesting. Full of flavour and nicely presented. There's many more things on the menu I'd like to try so will be back. The fried artichokes were amazing and equally have enjoyed the beet and mushroom dip dishes. Great addition to the northwest!
