Great summer fare!

We stopped in for a light meal on a very hot afternoon before going to the Cherry Creek Theatre. The salads were just the right size, fresh and very, very healthy. Our server was friendly and attentive. The only drawback was the load background music. Will definitely be back soon.

So, I've eaten at North many times, but somehow I've never had the GARLIC BREAD. When my dining partner ordered it to go with our salads, I thought it would be 'run of the mill' garlic bread. Definitely not the case! It comes out bubbling hot from the oven with butter and melted cheese heaped into a chafing dish. Lovely!... More

Our large group (about a dozen) received excellent service. The selection of dinners is large and varied, and the wine list is sufficiently eclectic to allow for a complementary selection with any meal offered. But the highlight is the well-presented and excellent food. Two examples, the Spinach Tortelloni with roasted mushroom, bloomsdale spinach, ricotta, pecorino & saba, and the Braised... More

I went to lunch here while in Denver for business. The staff was fantastic and the food was delicious! The environment is very nice, especially with the gorgeous weather, they were able to open the restaurant up to the outside. The sundried tomato butter may sound a little strange, but it's so good!- it's served with the bread. Their tea... More

There is a North in Leawood, Kansas that we like to go to often. This North in Cherry Creek was just as good, with great service, but they offer breakfast. This is not offered in our area and I wish it was, we had the hash with a side order of potatoes and it was out of this world!!!! We... More

Nice restaurant in Denver's Cherry Creek North area about a block from the mall. We enjoyed pizza, pasta bolognese and an Italian sandwich. The pasta especially was wonderful. Prices are moderate. Service was very good. Try parking in the garage at the mall and walking to this location to avoid the street congestion.

Places that are open late and are not bars are pretty scarce on this side of Denver, North which is a bit of a Cherry Creek institution is one of the exceptions. You almost have to eat here at least once because of the prominent locations and steady stream of business it does. That once came for us last week... More

Big modern busy restaurant service incredible pizza. The Pig Pizza was superb and great value at $15. Stylish place, (car park nearby is a rip off blame the city of Denver). This is really a great place and as a regular taster of Rome, Italy pizzas I can tell you these guys are good. The Chef's board, mixed cheese, prosciutto... More

Great chicken and pasta dish, but it was the salty caramel pudding that bowled me over. Amazing. Very rich - enough for two people- I nearly made myself sick finishing it, but I couldn't have lived with myself had I left I spoonful in the glass. I don't think Italy does dessert well, but this dish was awesome.
