Great dinner! It bothers me when higher-end restaurants either rush you through your visit or send you out the door wondering what's next. Borough refuses to adhere to either of these standards. Relaxed atmosphere where we never felt rushed, entrees (Scallops/Flat Iron Steak) and starter (Tartare) were delicious and well portioned, and service was excellent and attentive. Thanks for a great night!

We celebrated my husbands 50th with friends at Borough and absolutely LOVED it!! Every single item of food I put into my mouth was outstanding. The beef tartar, lamb balls, salmon, burrata for starters...mmmm! I had the scallops with a red wine risotto for my main entree and I could not have picked a better meal. The flavors of the scallops, risotto and vegetable & cheese garnish were stellar together. I cannot wait for our next opportunity to eat at Borough. Seriously, so good!
I only wish the waitress would've taken MY credit card to pay the bill instead of all the cards from the jerks I brought along for the night. LOL!!

It was our first time dining there and we absolutely loved it. We LOVED the octopus, the burrata, the salmon and the beef. Every dish was prepared in a very unique and delicious way, so different from every other place we’ve eaten at. The service was wonderful too and everyone was very kind and knowledgeable.

Any time we needed service we needed to find our server. I think they may be understaffed for a restaurant of their caliber! You expect better service for the price.

I have been to Borough for a variety of occasions and it never disappoints. The food has amazing flavors and fun twists with a knowledgeable staff to help make things more approachable if you’re hesitant about something new.
My preferred way of dining at Borough is to order a few of the First and Second options so I can try everything.
I recommend this spot to everyone looking for something a little more upscale.

Borough provides a great dining experience in the North Loop. The food is creative, well prepared and high quality. My wife and I have lived in the Twin Cities for over 20 years and eat out a lot. I'd put Borough in my top three go to restaurants.

Outstanding food. Perhaps the best scallops I have eaten. Five of us shared 3 firsts, 3 seconds, and then had an entree. Everything we ate was top notch. Beautifully presented. Service was attentive but not overbearing.

A nice place for a special occasion dinner. Creative menu where most dishes are 8+ ingredients. Varied and flavorful dishes so there is something for almost everyone. Friendly waitstaff that doesn’t rush you. I think we wer there for almost 3 hours eating and conversing with friends. Enough noise that you don’t hear everyone else’s conversations. I would recommend it.

It makes no sense that you can’t order the burger in the main dining room. We went specifically to get the burger and had to find this out midway through our cocktails that we couldn’t order it at our table so we had to close out our bill and move over to the bar area to have dinner. What a ridiculous policy. They should put the burger on the main menu and couple it with fries and charge $25, I don’t care, just make it available everywhere- it’s what people want. After we moved tables the bar completely understood why we did that and said it happens 5 to 6 times a night. I think that’s enough data points to make the decision to put the burger on the main menu. We felt bad for our server in the main dining room and over tipped her for the inconvenience of moving tables and she completely understood and again, said it happens all the time and that it’s really frustrating. We really like the food but it looks like we won’t be eating in the dining room again if we can’t get the full menu everywhere in the restaurant.

Was taken to Borough for my birthday. Staff was great. Very attentive, friendly, and helpful. Food tasted great, and the dishes are creative. Perfect atmosphere for dinner for two. This was my second visit and I both were excellent meals.

My only criticism - and it’s not really that much of a criticism- is the menu is limited. I easily found something I wanted, but the entrees are basically one beef, one chicken, one pork, etc.selection.

I am sorry to say but from the first through the last bite we were very disappointed and honestly thought about leaving before the venison was served. We are very upset we spent over $200 on such a poor meal. The service was terrible and what surprised me most of all is that no one questioned why so much food was being left on our plates when they were clearing the table for the next course. My Christmas wish would be to get at least 1/2 of my money back because I honestly feel I was robbed of over $200.
