A New Experience

Went as part of the Barrielicious Restaurant promotion and was impressed with the atmosphere, service and food. It;'s quite sophisticated and a pleasant change from the usual restaurant atmosphere. Certainly worth a visit for those who like a change in their dining experience.

Every time I visit Barrie we go for dinner at what is now one of my favorite fine dining restaurants in the GTA. The restaurant is always impeccable, the host is delightful, the service is excellent and the food is usually outstanding. The last visit was a bit disappointing because it was a special event small set menu, but the... More

The North used to be my favourite restaurant in Barrie. I am not sure why it has gone downhill in both taste and innovation but it has. I had not gone for a while due to previous experiences that were below par but decided to give it another try. We went for Barrielicious and were both disappointed. The only course... More

So my opinion may have been somewhat biased because I went to The North with my incredible Mother for Mother's Day so the company was exceptional, but the food was fabulous as well! I had the daily special which was a roasted salmon dish and my Mom had the sea bass. Let me start with the presentation; it was beyond... More

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
