Good food but pricey

We went to The North for Valentine's day. The food was very good, especially the starter and main course, but a little over-priced for what it was. Certainly there are other restaurants in Barrie with equally good food at lower prices. The dessert, Creme Brulee was ok but fairly tasteless. We were... read 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.

We went for Barrielicious. The menu looked really good and had something for everyone. We waited over 15 minutes (yes I timed) for a waitress to come and take our drink order. Far too long. They didn't have enough place settings for our table. So they had to cram another table in to accommodate the reservations I had already made... More

Barrielicious was what brought us into The North. We had been once before and found it outstanding. This trip was not that great. Our reservation although we had confirmed it THREE times was not ready for us. They scrambled to create a make shift spot for us upstairs and we ended up with five uneven tables, no table cloth. It... More

The food here is good, but..... Do not go for a date or any dinner for two! We had reservations and arrived to find no hostess. An over worked waitress checked our reservation and directed us to a temporary, makeshift stool sandwiched between two tables and we could barely squeeze into the seats. Seriously strangers elbows almost on our stool.... More

Let me start with the good.. Very cozy atmosphere and we were there for the "Barrielicious" so may not be the resteraunts best efforts. We ordered our 3 courses with their wine pairing for a bit extra. I'll say the wine pairing was bang on anyway. Here's the BUT: Service seems like an afterthought, we either got our "paired" drinks... More

Food - 5 stars Ambiance - 5 stars Service - 1/2 star I'll chalk up this rare miss, from The North, on the fact that it was a busy "Barrielicious" night (popular Prix Fixe event held across Barrie.) After a half hour without seeing our server, the 1st words out of her mouth was "we have another group coming in... More
