    We love this restaurant! The food is simply exceptional and the prices are a value not for the quantity but for the quality, unique and delicious flavors and presentation. Service was excellent. Noise level was non existent which we love, since we were there pre Orpheum.

    Borough is hands down our favorite restaurant in town. We come back time and again for special occasions. The food is always delicious, full of delicate and refined flavors, unique, and beautifully presented. The service is always outstanding as well. The atmosphere is relaxed and casual, comfortable and lovely. We've tried all the other supposedly finest restaurants like Butcher and Boar, Spoon and Stable, Capitol Grille etc...and we never end up going back to them, because they just don't measure up to Borough. We can't figure out why Borough doesn't get more attention and recognition...but as long as we can keep getting a table, we will be happy!

    Borough's staff was inviting, attentive and charming throughout our meal. Pairing suggestions were on point. Meats were prepared and cooked perfectly. Presentations of all dishes were delicious for the eyes and taste buds. Everything went down easy, enhancing our table conversation, excitement and comfort. The elevated position of the restaurant and view of the lively street from any seat in the house makes for wonderful people watching and an energetic atmosphere.

    The hostess congratulated us on our anniversary upon arrival. A server delivered a duet of champagnes after we had our initial cocktail. Katherine, our server, was wonderful. The whole experience- the food- service- ambience- everything was great. The ONLY thing I could constructively criticize is the “signature” octopus dish. It was really lacking in flavor. Really. But the scallops were off the hook/ the beet purée- delicious- everything else- awesome. Desserts- not a good selection. But everything else- perfect

    I will give the restaurant another try. We liked it on previous occasions but this time there were several dishes that were over done and just not that good. There were a few really good ones. The tuna dish and carrot dish were excellent but the rest were either so-so or worse.

    Disappointing! We were never asked how we’d like our burgers, nor if we wanted anything accompanying them. So, unless you’ve read the small print, you get 2 patties in between 2 buns with a slice of pickle! Really!! And then got an “explanation” that this is de rigour for upper end restaurants!! Really!! As someone who travels internationally & has experienced both ends of the eatery spectrum... this was way below expectations & a big disappointment.

    Borough has been our go-to place for a high-quality dinner for special occasions or just when we want a high level of service, great food, and an elegant atmosphere. I've recommended it to friends in the past, but don't think I will in the future. On Friday we went for a birthday celebration. The table was sticky and when we asked our server to have it wiped off she at first told us "the tables are just like that, it's the finish" -- I had to ask twice to get her to wipe it down (it was sticky, something had been spilled on it, it wasn't just that the varnish was tacky from the humidity). She brought my wine right away -- my dinner companion wasn't sure which wine he wanted and it took her over 15 minutes to check back in (I'd had my wine for over 10 minutes). The food was disappointing -- the ravioli were tough on the outside and grainy on the inside, my steak dish relied too heavily on salt for the flavor, and the turnips in my companion's dish were under-done. In the past, for birthdays, they've brought a little dessert with a candle, but the waitress didn't mention anything about the birthday and that was a bit disappointing. Overall, we didn't have a *bad* time, but it was not the experience we were looking for, or the quality I expect at that price point.

    Went for my birthday while in town, with my wife who is celiac. The waiter knew (for the most part) which dishes would be safe for her, but had to go check on one and simply.....forgot. The rest of the service staff spent the evening trying to give my wife bread and sharing plates for dishes with pasta and bread, which expresses a lack of attention to details. From the food standpoint, there were some high points, but for the most part the food felt unfocused. Too many useless elements on the plate, many of which were cooked improperly or incompletely, or dishes that were simply poorly conceived. Some Asian influences, some American, some Italian, and none of which really fit well together. Overall, a very disappointing experience.

    We had a free Saturday night and decided to hit Borough again. We love the ambiance of this restaurant and the large floor to ceiling windows showing the view of the busy street. Our server paced our meal so we had time between courses to enjoy our wine and we did not feel rushed. The dinner was excellent and we thoroughly enjoyed each of our three courses. (4 if you count dessert) Our server, John, was amazing and answered all of our questions. We would highly recommend Borough.

    We enjoyed our visit. The scallops were a favorite. Less so the Trout first and Ravioli second. There was too much competing for taste with the trout. The ravioli was just not memorable. But we love to go out to the north loop so no complaints.

    This was my third time here. The first two times were much better. This time, the service wasn’t anything special and the food was all a little too salty. While the food was fun and unique, the flavors didn’t balance quite right in most of the six dishes we purchased. For a $200 meal for two, I expected better.
