Great food and good service
We came for New Year’s Eve dinner. We got the special 4 course meal. Our server poured our wine and walked away. I’ve never had a server not do a taste test first with the customer. Our salad came and they just walked away. I had to ask for pepper after 10 minutes when I could wave her down. Our steak came as our main course and no one checked on the taste or anything. We also had asked for dessert to go and they still brought it but that wasn’t a huge deal, they just packed it up. Also the staff were blowing party horns and noise makers and yelling while we were trying to enjoy our $200 dinner. They must have been partying after because the staff were pretty rowdy. I’ve always had a good experience with Borealis but this wasn’t a good visit unfortunately.
Love that everything is locally sourced. Nice low lighting to create a cozy vibe. Food was amazing.
Our server Tamara was lovely and took good care of us. The food was excellent and we had a great time overall.
The food was amazing and our server was absolutely lovely! 10/10 would recommend to everyone and we plan to come back in the new year!!
Always a good example
Excellent, friendly service. Delicious food. Really enjoyed my dining experience. Thank you!!
Good choices on the menu; appetizers a good size and made a good lunch meal.
The restaurant was not too busy tonight which was nice.
Our waiter was a ton of fun and made the experience an awesome one!!
The fact that they have a private closed dining area for larger groups is also a great benefit - it helps to keep the noise down. The food was scrumptious as always!
We were running late and the staff accommodated us after our call. It was nice to see some flexibility in a world that is becoming less flexible.
Our team had an amazing time at the dinner party.
Rianna’s service was excellent! Very friendly & professional with excellent recommendations!
Spence is an absolute legend. Delicious cocktails (even mine which had no booze cause I’m a puss now). Fried chicken tasted like it was made by the Lord Jesus himself.
Only issue was Kaleigh (manager extrordinairé) wasn’t there in person but she texted a waitress there to say hi to us for her which if I showed that level of detail in high school I might have actually graduated.
11/10 cya tomorrow.
The food was tasty but Luke warm. Service was excellent.
Upon arrival the hostess would not accept the QR code for vaccination which was troubling as it is and should be accepted.The server was awesome and gave a great experience. One of our meals were undercooked and was sent back. With this being a business Christmas party it was disappointing that one of our employees were unable to enjoy their meal and was hesitant to order anything else.
This was our second time at Borealis. The menu item I was hooked on first time was the fried chicken. This second time was a bit disappointing. The pieces of chicken were smaller and overcooked and dry. Also, the cole slaw had no taste other than that of raw cabbage. Not sure I want to try it again.
Excellent food, good value. Good service. Creative menu.
Potato soup with charred corn and bacon.....yuuuummmmmm! Was excellent! And the beef shortrib....delicious. Service was so friendly and always available...no complaints at all.
Thanks to Spence and Tamara for their awesome customer service!
We had a very pleasant lunch meeting. Service (Katie, I think) was attentive and efficient. Particularly appreciated the no rush atmosphere when we were done.
A great experience - our server was fantastic! She gave us our space, yet provided helpful suggestions.
Great food , great service .
Ceasar salad was delicious.
Great service . Loved the lay out of the bar. Friendly staff!
The food was excellent and our waitress was very friendly and attentive
Great to support local, no back up if allergies to local wines etc. Got seated in the middle of the room near the door, chairs not the comfiest and cold by the door. Was busy and loud. Food was excellent. Would give it another try.
Lovely. Very tasty food, nice clean restaurant (even the washrooms, much appreciated). Good menu with lots of options.
Our server was great and the food was delicious!
First time there. OMG, the baked focaccia w caramelized onions! As a main, we shared a pickerel fish & chips! Going back for sure.
Always a wonderful experience and delicious, tasty, satisfying food!
Friendly and professional service from Amanda. Food was excellent and decent value for the price.
Excellent and attentive service, and delicious locally-grown food!
Food was extremely underwhelming, noodles fell apart when picked up with a fork.
We celebrated our 49th anniversary and thoroughly enjoyed our meal. Wonderful service. We will certainly go back.
Went on a dinner date. Food was amazing and ambience perfect. Homely, quiet, and not overbearing with service.
Great food, great atmosphere, great server (Dylan)!
Your website menu included Hayter’s turkey burger. It was not on the menu. The chef substituted grilled chicken breast. The chicken breast was burned around the edges and dry in the middle. It was not tasty.
Our waiter was Dylan and he was great!
My third visit and it didn't disappoint. Would definitely go back for a fourth visit.
First time here and it was an overall great time.
Will be back soon
We were celebrating my husbands 61 birthday! and we had heard very good reviews about this place,and decided to check it out...
Our server was Dylan he was attentive yet respectful, the food was very good, 2 of us had the fish and chips so good! 1 had the steak and fries ,again very good ! and the last of our party had the pulled brisket she enjoyed that very much.....dessert was also very tasty , the pumpkin spice crème brulee and the chocolate chips cookies!
We as a group will definatly be back!
