    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.

    We opted to go for a family style approach which provided a good variety of flavors and varieties. The artichoke hearts were a group favorite as well as the fusilli pasta. Would recommend this restaurant for many occasions.

    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!

    We dined for our anniversary & enjoyed it very much! Ashley was an attentive server without being intrusive, and followed our dining pace very well. We shared 4 appies & then shared the salmon belly block with 3 sides. It was tasty & left us room for dessert without feeling over full. Dessert was rich & lovely, especially the Affogato! The staff were kind enough to turn on the outdoor fireplace so we enjoyed our desserts & appertifs in front of the flames. Thank you - we will be back!

    4 of us went to check out the ambience and the food in connection with an event we want to have for about 50 people. The Ambience is lovely - chic but down to earth. The food was great. We had an assortment of appetizers and it is exactly the kind of food we would serve to impress our group. The service was attentive but not overbearing. It was a pleasure to be there once again.

    My friend ordered the club sandwich and I ordered the flatiron steak meal. It was an early after work dinner so the lunch menu was what we ordered from. The club was delicious and portion was really generous. The flatiron steak wasn’t great. It wasn’t bad, but quite bland and the portion was tiny. I left the restaurant hungry only an hour later and I’m not usually a big eater. We ordered the banana dessert, and it was delicious the portion was just perfect to share. The ice cream it was paired with was amazing. The drinks were a highlight and you could tell the cocktails were expertly crafted. Well done there! Another high point was our server. She was very kind and professional. Always popped by at the right moment and made the overall experience really enjoyable!

    Had dinner party for 8. Our server was attentive and cheerful. No problem with 4 separate checks. The food was very good from start to finish. We sat at the chef's table with a bird's eye view of the kitchen. Would recommend the table to those who like to see their chef in action.

    Went for brunch. Overall not bad but also not great. Food was just okay. Had the BLT Omelette and a Ceasar cocktail, and my wife had the yogurt parfait and a Mimosa. Parfait was quite good although there were a few inedible strawberries. Good value for the $7 cost. My wife was going to get toast but we were told that there was going to be a $5 charge for jam, so we passed on the toast. Mimosa served in a small wine glass, so a little sad for the price. Omelette was basically a two egg cheese omelette on some butter lettuce sprinkled with bacon bits. Was just okay. Caesar was good but the pickle and pepperoni on top was miniscule. Service was good. So overall okay, but the quality and value was lacking. Would prefer to try out other new places before going back to Borough for Brunch.

    Love this new restaurant! Isabel was a fantastic host. She made sure our evening was just perfect! We sat in the lounge for wine and appetizers. The mushroom dip was so yummy. The tuna crudo was amazing! Excellent tuna! Roasted asparagus was cooked perfectly and the fried artichokes were amazing. The atmosphere was fantastic too. The only one thing would be that the tables in the lounge are pretty small and was hard to fit all our appetizers, plates, wine, etc. Can’t wait to go back and try more!!

    Our second time at Borough. Brought another couple this time. Food was excellent, a bit on the expensive side, but we must realize that to survive restaurants need to turn a profit. Northwest Calgary needs this type of quality restaurant. Service was superb and the whole service staff pitches in making it a great dining experience. We had a great time interacting with the staff laughing with them throughout the evening. Thoughtful wine list and the manager promised me that they will have more wines by the glass with the new fall menu coming in a few weeks.

    Our 31st anniversary dinner was amazing. The fried artichokes were miraculously not greasy, and came with a tasty dipping sauce. The halibut, while a bit pricey at $43, was perfectly cooked. Hubby had the lamb and pronounced it perfect. We ordered sides of grilled broccolini and smoked potatoes - both were delicious, though the taters didn’t really taste smokey. No room for dessert. Highly recommend this restaurant for special occasions or simply a treat.

    Thankfully, we had a reservation as it was very busy. the patio was closed due to rain but we were given a table in the lounge which turned out to be a lovely spot. My husband and I both had pizza...mine was the mushroom which was delicious and his was the pepperoni, with a drizzle of honey. Ample portions so we happily took home leftovers. We will definitely be back.

    We really enjoyed dinner at this location. The server was personable and repeatedly checked in on us. So we let them know multiple times how much we enjoyed their food. Their pasta dishes were good portions and tasted fabulous. One in our party was surprised at just how good her steak was considering we weren’t at a steakhouse. Will definitely plan to visit this University District joint again!

    I have been to Borough a few times for both personal and business lunches. Very good. Finally made it there with friends for dinner. Because we went with close friends, we were able to share our plates. Everything was delicious. The tuna, both as an appetizer and a main was very well done. The service was very good and the wine list reasonably priced. Will definitely go there again.

    Food was okay. We got the pretzels, pizza, and pasta and all were a bit greasy/oily. Service wasn’t amazing but the place is newly opened so we’ll give the benefit of the doubt that people are still training. The atmosphere is nice. Cocktails were good but pricey! Would say it was more of an upscale vibe with mediocre food

    The pizza, mushroom dip and cauliflower were all very good. The fried artichokes were a huge disappointment, hence the lower rating. They were so tiny you could barely see them on the plate, and looked nothing like the picture on the website. The four of us were quite hungry so they disappeared before I could bring them to the waitress's attention. Otherwise a lovely evening.

    We went to Borough to celebrate a birthday. The lunch was perfect. We had the roasted beet salad with the flat iron steak enhancement and lovely glasses of wine. The only possible improvement would be a wider variety of wine by the glass. Our server was gracious and attentive.

    Nice meal and attentive service. Food quality and service will certainly come up after being open a bit longer. Prices are a bit all high/over the place. Overall it’s a nice restaurant, but if it wants more people from the neighbourhood and business on other days apart from Friday and Saturday, the prices are going to have to come down over all.

    This is a new restaurant at University District. Went by for some wine and appetizers. It was great. Got to sit out on the patio which is wind and weather protected with a lovely view of the inside of the restaurant. It's one of the best patios for all types of weather. The wine list had some very reasonable alternatives and great variety. Our appetizers were a good size and delicious. Will definitely return for lunch or dinner.
