We have never been a big fan of Borago's until last night. Most of these "30-A restaurants" were too lazy, or too greedy, or both to open on a Tuesday night in February for dinner since attendance would not be very good. Borago's on the other hand, was wide open for business with their bar and full restaurant contingent. We... More

I ate here with some friends at a school fundraiser event. The restaurant has a great view of the water. The service was very good. They served focaccia bread with an olive oil dip for starters. For dinner I had the mixed greens salad and the Penne Pasta with Italian Sausage. It was quickly served and delicious. I finished with... More

We arrived at 4:45 and they told us to come back in 15 minutes. We were surprised by that as the staff was in there already. So we walked across the street to The Bay and had drinks over there for a couple of hours. We returned to Borago and saw that only 2 tables in the whole restaurant were... More

This is another one of our favorite local go-to's! We usually sit at the bar and the service is always like your at your own home! The food is always delicious, the best consistent restaurant in the area! We love the owners and all the staff, they're fantastic!

Wife had grouper and just pasta for me. Our server, Ellie, made sure wife's selection was gluten free due to celiacs. Note TA still has their old address. It's at corner of 331 and 98 across from The Bay restaurant.

We've been to Borago so many times of the years and it never disappoints. Great new location on the Bay. Awesome bread with herbed oil. My new favorite entree is their vegetable lasagna...SO GOOD!

My husband found this restaurant and really liked the food so he took myself and our friends there to have dinner. First of all when we walked in the smell of mothballs was overwhelming. Not sure why we smelled mothballs to begin with. It was 6:30 on Saturday evening we did not have reservations and were told by the manager... More

We have eaten at Borago's before the old place burned down. The new location on the bay is fantastic. Great out door bar overlooking the water. The food is great and service is terrific. A must visit but make reservations .

A little hard to find as the signage could be better but once we found it we enjoyed the dinner, great menu and terrific wine list. The servers were all professional and friendly although I am not sure they were prepared for the large crowd that was in the restaurant. Could have had more help. This is a beach crowd... More

Friends took us here on a recent visit to the emerald coast. My grouper was good, but a little more "fishy" tasting than what I have come to like grouper for. The service was super friendly and attentive.

Description
We are a small contemporary Italian restaurant. We have a full bar and bar area, dining room with open kitchen and a screened in porch area. We are chef owned and operated and at least one of the two owner/chefs can be found in the kitchen every night. We have a excellent staff most of whom have been with us for many years. We had our 15 year anniversary on March 1, 2015 with the same two owner/chefs for that time. We have a nice variety of food to choose from, with appetizers like calamari and pan seared sea scallops, salads like Caesar and arugula, pastas like angel hair with pan seared shrimp and three meat bolognese and entrees like grouper nicoise and roasted eggplant lasagna. Please come and give us a try!
