    We enjoy Borealis usually but the food was a little sub standard for them tonight. Hopefully a one off.

    As always thank you to the Borealis staff for a wonderful experience. We’re looking forward to planting our flower seeds in the garden this weekend!

    This restaurant was dirty and the table was chipped/dented, the seats were dirty and it looked run down. We didn’t even stay to order, we left and went somewhere else.

    We took our niece and nephew to Borealis to celebrate their second wedding anniversary. They had never been there before. They loved the food, service and the atmosphere. We each ordered different dishes. They were all amazing! Our Server was friendly and attentive. My family has been there many times, and we look forward to our next visit.

    A great restaurant with excellent food. Take care of any food allergies/intolerance with care. Just let them know ahead of time. Their menu does specify vegetarian, gluten free, and dairy free options. Service was excellent, happy, always willing to help and extremely friendly!

    We really like Borealis in Guelph. The farm-to-table approach and the local sourcing works really well and the variety of starters, mains and desserts is excellent. This time out, our orders included the scratch tomato chilli bisque soup (nicely spiced), fried chicken, cheeseburger, Manitoulin Pickerel Fish & Chips and a chicken club (full chicken breast) on artisanal bread. All the mains were delicious, piping hot and nicely priced. Ambiance is great, nice booths and even a private dining room that look like it seats 20. Our server was great - prompt and attentive.

    Our waitress was Jamie and she was great! My friends and I hadn’t seen each other in ages and we step up a signal when we were ready to order. She gave us her favourite options which were bowl and chickpea burger; 2 of my friends ordered and no complaints. It was wing night special and the apple mustard sauce was fantastic!!!

    There were two large parties which put the kitchen behind. They were very kind and gave us the app for free to make up for the long wait. Little touches like that, that make local restaurants amazing.
