Entrees were excellent. I would say the chicken piccata was divine. Service was spot on ! Nice selection of entrees and varied.

We were tired of fish and junk food at the beach. We sat at the bar and the service was awesome. We will return tonight, it was that good. Nice selection of wines and great bar. Bolognese with tortellini was the best. Steak, pork loin, were great. Show up early or be sure you make a reservation it fills up... More

We have driven by Borago a hundred times when visiting the 30A area, and this year we finally decided to give it a try. And are we ever happy we did! We arrived early and were seated immediately. First we had drinks and the fried calamari. Both were outstanding! Compliments to the bartender for a very creative drink menu. Our... More

We have dined here off and on for about five years. I almost hate to tell everyone about it, because we have never had a wait. The food is delicious every time. People in our party raved about the Bolognese sauce, the salmon special was great. We had a large party as well. The youngest was 15 and the oldest... More

I travel and am fussy. Borage delivers every time. As a local this is one of my top 5 but #1 for italian. Great wine, amazing food, and spot on service. It's not Olive Garden so please don't complain about price or the fact it didn't come out of a frozen box! Great job again Borago!

Our first visit with our friends that have been here multiple times. It is their favorite place to dine on 30-A. It is rather unassuming in the dining area..but quite frankly, I would prefer excellent food and great service over atmosphere...which is what we experienced. The bar area is a bit nicer and you could certainly dine there as well.... More

This Italian restaurant is easy to drive by without stopping in- big mistake! This is a fantastic restaurant with real Italian cuisine and superb service. If you're staying in Destin, Watercolor, or Santa Rosa, this restaurant will not disappoint. It is very affordable, clean, and the ambience is great for families or couples romance.

Unfriendly hostess. Friendly and knowledgeable server, but took 10 minutes to be greeted and another 10 to get drinks. Food was delicious but entrees took 45 minutes to arrive after delivery of appetizers. Our table only had appetizer and entrees. Scallops and pork tenderloin were perfectly prepared.

The food here is excellent and they have a pretty good wine selection as well. The exterior of the building has a beautiful garden like setting, the bar inside is the typical, but the dining room is not that cool to be honest so we usually sit at the bar. Their meatball appetizer is awesome and it is served with... More

Thank you for giving us 5 stars and taking the time to write a kind review. I am sorry the dining room is not to you liking but thankfully the bar suits you as it does many others.

Last night was our third time at Borago. It's a tiny, unassuming place that my husband & I discovered quite by chance one morning while out biking. Each time we've gone, it's been delightful. Yes, it's a bit pricey, but not out of line with most restaurants in the area. With three kids in the family, one being a Pescetarianism,... More
