Been their many of time both for Barrielious and non Barrielious. The food this time was excellent as normal. The service though was extremely sloppy and mistake prone. First of instead of automatically automatically refilling our water glasses we had to ask. The big mistake was the coffee service with dessert. Normally their coffee is served in a French press...

We have been to The North a few years ago and recall being pleased with the experience. Our most recent visit was a big enough disappointment that we will not bother going back again. While there were three people attending to us, a waitress and two helpers, the service was more akin to a roadhouse than fine dining. While it... More

To be honest this is probably my second favourite fine dining restaurant in Barrie after Michael and Marrions, the food and location are excellent...except in Barrilicious. I don't think the North is unique in this aspect, but it is just my worst memory of this annual disaster for those who are prepared to pay for a good meal. We waited... More

We went for my girlfriends birthday and they blew our expectations away. We had several allergies at our table and they catered to us and came up with creative, fresh and delicious meals. The presentation of the dessert was out of this world. Amazing! ;)

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

My boyfriend took me to the North for Valentines and we had a very bad exp. First the girl that sat us put us right by the front door and it was minus 15 outside. Every time the door opened we froze. I asked for a table that was empty on the other side and she said no it is... 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!...
