The specialty drinks are terrific. Each course of the meal was a delight. The beef tartare was sublime, the quail was tender and the pilaf it rested on was a complex mix of flavors all in perfect harmony. The highlight was the lamb meatballs; they were incredible. The entrees we had, the beef and the scallops, were wonderfully prepared. The meals are expensive but for a special occasion the food is fantastic. A slight complaint: the lighting is very dim.

Casual but classy North Loop spot, quiet but not stuffy so great for conversation. Food was amazing. Octopus was unique and tasty and fun. Squash soup was a thing of wonder it was so good. Love the atmosphere, love the food. Staff was terrific as well. A great place for a not-too-stuffy but still classy and hip dinner out.

Loved the ambiance and decor. Most of it is reused materials in interesting way. Railroad ties on the walls, cheese graters as light fixtures. I loved the personal coffee cups as well. Food was delicious and at a reasonable price.

Loved the atmosphere and the staff, so friendly and helpful. Food was great if not a little adventurous for me. I’m glad I ate the waiter recommended octopus; I would’ve never done so otherwise and it was great. I would definitely come back.

Very nice cocktails, good pasta, the burrata was beautiful but a bit too much melon in the accompaniment for my taste. i prefer mine with savories. But if you like the mix of sweet and rich, go for it.

Food was Awesome. Service was on point. Beautiful urban rustic vibe. My only negative about this place is the seating. They had separate tables, but 1/2 the place was long bench/booth style on one side and a chair on the other. I hate this style, cause they always seat someone right next to you.. I feel like we are sitting at the same table- and the conversation is no longer private. It's like our table for 2 just went to a table of 4 and I don't know the other two dinner guests. I like more private seating options.

Borough always delivers a great time. The ambiance is understatedly rich; the dinner was excellent with subtle and outstanding preparation and they delivered excellence on every level. Of course I’d come back again and again.

We enjoyed two first courses and two second courses, which filled us up. I suggest arriving very hungry and allowing for plenty of time to enjoy the variety of flavors they offer. You must order the brussel sprouts and the octopus.

Went for an anniversary dinner and requested a two top that wouldn't be feel terribly crowded. They happily accommodated that request and we got a table in the corner with windows on 2/4 sides. We had the beef tartare, lamb meatballs, brussel sprouts, and beef entree. All of them were amazing, with the beef tartare probably standing out the most. The ambiance was great for a date, but not too dark.

Great service, there before we needed anything, authentically friendly, food arrived at the perfect times.

Can't recommend it enough, the only negative was the price tag, but that shouldn't scare you away.

Upon our waiter's suggestion we all had burgers - we were sitting by the kitchen so we could watch everything being prepared. BEST burger I've ever had....bar none! Highly recommend this restaurant. While it was a little loud, the atmosphere was conducive to a wonderfully fun night out with friends. Can't wait to go back again very soon!!!

Great food! Our server was a bit slow getting to our table when we first got there (about 10-15min) but was very attentive after greeting us. First, second and third courses were absolutely phenomenal. Our table all shared the lefse, soup and beef tartar for the first. Recommend the beef tartar and lefse! We got the Brussels and pork belly for the second and the chicken, scallops and steak for the third. Everything was so delicious!! Dessert was okay, I’d pass on it next time. We got the sorbe and funnel cake.

 (Minneapolis)·Dined on November 4, 2017

Pretension at its best! Had a lovely champagne by the glass to start. Ordered two First plates, steelhead trout and tuna carpaccio. Both were lovely and quite different. Steelhead was more evenly flavored enveloped in herbs, dusted with smoked creme fraiche, and laid atop a sweet muddling of beets. I missed a strong caper or radish flavor as they were strewn about rather haphazardly. Those would have balanced the almost applesauce texture and sugar of the beets. Tuna is one of my favorite delicate flavors. It was obliterated by the strong mix of briny kalamatas and gleek-inducing pickled mustard. The "rye crisp" amounted to a graham cracker-like sand dumped all over the filleted tuna. The crunch of its original form would be welcomed. My friend enjoyed her (rather small) helping of lamb meatballs and her soup (part of which was surprisingly and purposefully cold). The lighting is quite uneven. Our table was directly under a spotlight whereas the tables by the windows were so dark, I saw a few diners use their phones to illuminate the menu.

I was visiting Minneapolis from out of state and booked a reservation at Borough at the suggestion of my client. Every aspect of the dining experience was positive, from the ambiance and location (North Loop) to the friendliness of the staff and accessible parking. We also appreciated that the noise factor was minimal which can be a problem in other restaurants. As for the food, Borough did not disappoint! The menu is small and not overwhelming in choices and offered familiar dishes with a fresh, local spin. Everything we tried, including the appetizers, second plates and entrees were exceptional and beautifully prepared and plated. The portions were perfect and desserts were equally unique and delicious. My one suggestion for improvement would be an expanded beer selection including more local offerings. 5 STARS!

We absolutely loved our meal at Borough! We went with a gift card for our 5-year anniversary.

Neither my husband or I are that into fish or sea food; so we thoroughly enjoyed the chicken with fingerling potatoes, brussel sprouts with figs and tofu, and our chocolate dessert.

Our waitress was friendly and attentive, but not overly so. They brought my husband a different drink when he wasn't a fan of the beer he had originally gotten (he had a few sips, but we weren't charged).

It was quiet and we had a table next to the windows, which made for good people watching.

The only thing I can think of that wasn't great was our busser who smelled very strongly of smoke.

Other than that small thing, that didn't detract from our evening at all, the night was lovely. The food was excellent and filling, the staff friendly, and the dessert was devine. I'd definitely go here again.
