I can't say enough about the North. The food is amazing, the atmosphere is very sophisticated. We have been several times and we have never been disappointed. Marco is a fabulous Chef. Thoroughly enjoy the North. Love the new renovations too.

Overall, id say its a nice atmosphere and a good place to have a couple og glasses of wine with an appetizer or two. After a couple of visits, id say the entrees are mediocre. There tends to be a lack of flavour or wow factor considering the prices.

I enjoyed dinner at The North a few weeks ago. Marco is the owner chef and is a great chef. I always enjoy dining there. service is good and food is excellent and you can bring your own wine. Make a reservation "DOWNSTAIRS" so you don't have to climb stairs to a room away from the action. I don't eat... More

I really don't like giving bad reviews online...but hopefully the owner sees it, and can take it into consideration. Firstly I'd like to mention I have eaten here a few years ago and the atmosphere, service, meals, and attention to detail were OUTSTANDING. That is why we were pretty pumped to get dressed up and go in for some cocktails... More

I really like the vibe of this place. It's a great small restaurant with a good crowd. I found the food to be just ok though.

Excellent dining experience. The food was prepared just right, served hot and had a nice presentation to the eye. Service was also excellent, with the right mix of attentiveness without being annoying.
