I've been to the North a total of 4 times now. 3 times with my girlfriend, and once with a friend. If I had to describe the food in three words it would be: flavorful, unique, and mouth watering. The presentation of the dishes are so good, and the taste reflects that. The servers there are great too. Every time... More

Took my GF to The North the other day and was overall not happy. When I made the reservation I requested a private quiet table. When we arrived they sat us in the bar not private and not quiet so they moved us upstairs next to a table of very very loud people. To be honest this ruined the night... More

Took my girlfriend to The North on a recommendation and was not disappointed. The Chef Marco prepared an unforgettable meal and the staff recommended some great wine. If your looking for casual fine dinning that is a step up from the norm The North is a must visit in Barrie.

We went to the North for supper it has been a while! They actually moved locations. Our first impressions were great. The tables were not crowded and the chairs were comfortable. Our waitress was great! She was informative, friendly and professional! We ordered appetizers and they came with awesome presentation. The Caesar salad looked very attractive my wife enjoyed it!...

The atmosphere was nice, the service excellence and the food was over the top. I had the rib eye with risotto and vegetables-OUTSTANDING.... More

I bought a gift card on line for 1/2 price for this place just to try out. It is a little pricey but you get what you pay for. The food was excellent, the atmosphere excellent and the service excellent.What more could you ask for? I will return and will be happy to pay full price for the privilege.

We always enjoy going to The North Restaurant. Not only is their food spectacular with many amazing options to choose from (The oysters are GREAT), but anytime we have been their, the service goes above and beyond many other establishments. On numerous occasions the chef has come out to see how our meal was, which I always think shows how... More

Went for dinner on a Saturday night as a group of 8 for my wifes birthday. Everything from start to finish was abosloutely fantastic. Probably the best mushroom soup in existence, foie gras cooked perfectly, scallops were beautiful. Not one person at the table left a morsel on their plate. Were given a TOWERING dessert platter on the house as... More

I eat here often and The chefs in the kitchen are clearly focused and into the art of cooking. Tasting menu is always spectacular. Owner can usually be seen cooking or out in the restaurant. Can't say enough! You won't be disappointed.
