    Food was okay. We got the pretzels, pizza, and pasta and all were a bit greasy/oily. Service wasn’t amazing but the place is newly opened so we’ll give the benefit of the doubt that people are still training. The atmosphere is nice. Cocktails were good but pricey! Would say it was more of an upscale vibe with mediocre food

    The pizza, mushroom dip and cauliflower were all very good. The fried artichokes were a huge disappointment, hence the lower rating. They were so tiny you could barely see them on the plate, and looked nothing like the picture on the website. The four of us were quite hungry so they disappeared before I could bring them to the waitress's attention. Otherwise a lovely evening.

    Outstanding food and location and fit out is brilliant. Have been back multiple times, enjoyed the cocktails and the food and friendly staff are working hard to get up and running. Menu is great for big meat dishes, fish and vegan. Great value for the quality of food.

    We loved the choices of mocktails. The food choices were great. There were many healthy choices. We will be coming back later with our dogs, to sit in the dog area and enjoy our meal.

    We went to Borough to celebrate a birthday. The lunch was perfect. We had the roasted beet salad with the flat iron steak enhancement and lovely glasses of wine. The only possible improvement would be a wider variety of wine by the glass. Our server was gracious and attentive.

    Nice meal and attentive service. Food quality and service will certainly come up after being open a bit longer. Prices are a bit all high/over the place. Overall it’s a nice restaurant, but if it wants more people from the neighbourhood and business on other days apart from Friday and Saturday, the prices are going to have to come down over all.

    This is a new restaurant at University District. Went by for some wine and appetizers. It was great. Got to sit out on the patio which is wind and weather protected with a lovely view of the inside of the restaurant. It's one of the best patios for all types of weather. The wine list had some very reasonable alternatives and great variety. Our appetizers were a good size and delicious. Will definitely return for lunch or dinner.

    Great gem in NW Calgary. Halibut was perfectly cooked. Tuna was a generous sized portion. Steak tartar was delicious. Looking forward to returning for the mushroom dip and the artichoke starter. Emma our server was attentive and knowledgeable. You feel like you are being welcomed with open arms. It is the restaurant we have been waiting for. NW, friendly, great atmosphere and excellent food. Patio looks like it is designed for our climate. The UD has a great vibe. Look for the signs that direct you to the retail underground parkade. 3 hours free parking.

    3-hour free parking, wheelchair accessible. Good food, portion size and service. We have bucatini and eggplant, turned out to be such a good match when my husband & I shared them. Looking forward to try out their lunch in the patio.

    My recent experience was excellent! My girlfriends & I had drinks and appetizers before a movie and were suitably impressed. The only reason I didn't rate ambience higher is because surrounding grounds are not completed as yet. It is a gem of a place and I highly recommend the mushroom pizza. Will be back for dinner this summer to enjoy the patio.

    Amazing from the moment you walk in. The ambience of the restaurant decor along with the amazing natural lighting coming through their huge doors and windows was amazing. The service was prompt and the server was knowledgeable of the menu. The food was beyond expectation between the rigatoni pasta and the rotisserie chicken club we had the chance to try. Highly recommended for small or bigger sized parties for lunch or for dinner. We will surely be visiting again.

    Had dinner the other night and it is the first week they have been open. Exceptional service, food quality and timeliness for such a young restaurant. The staff were very attentive and knowledgeable about the menu and Sabrina was very helpful with my dietary restrictions and made sure the kitchen was aware as well. Will definitely be going back.
