Tried this during Denver Restaurant week. The appetizers (for example, the burrata with artichokes, lemon, pistachios, etc.) are incredible and the pasta dishes are definitely above average. They're handmade and you can taste that. The dessert I tried (salted caramel) was good, but very rich and needed to be broken up with some cake or something--it was straight pudding in... More

The meal started with a delicate Bruschetta appetizer. Next came the ambrosial seafood entree perfectly presented. All the dishes to follow were creative, beautiful and delicious.

Brilliant upscale decor and location with a misguided staff. Sadly the wait staff needs training in fundamental service. My experience 20min for a glass of water, an hour for 2 orders of small plates, and the floors were filthy . . . Restrooms worse (good indicator of how the restaurant is managed). Overall the food was good, but the only... More

We were more than happy with the menu selection. We were wowed by the grilled artichoke and the beet salad. The latter had a whipped lemony dressing that I want to go back for right now. The service was excellent also. Sort of a trendy casual atmosphere. Highly recommend.

Love the chef's cheese board here---always includes some kind of interesting jam. Cheeses and prosciutto are nice. Great wine and nice beer selection. Best plan is happy hour early with seating outside. This restaurant is VERY noisy inside when crowded. Service is excellent---a favorite in Denver!

After a busy work week, headed to North to try their Happy Hour and we were not disappointed. $20 = your choice - a bottle or Merlot or Chardonnay & one of three food choices. We enjoyed the Chardonnay with the Chef's Board, then added the Brushchetta. All was scrumptious, fabulous service, and an affordable early evening.

This is a great place for a Dinner (in our case for two) with a very wide range of wines and food selections untypical to most "Italian" places. It is wide open - so noise does travel, but that depends on the crowd and time of day. Clearly on our list of places to go back to. Service was excellent... More

We were staying down the street at JW Marriott and decided to stop here for brunch prior to catching our flight home to Chicago. The menu for brunch offers you breakfast options or lunch options. We decided on breakfast. When we walked in, the hostess was great and friendly and the waitress gave us an overview of the restaurant. The... More

Four of us had a later night dinner here and all were pleased with their selections. It began with fresh and warm bread (of course), followed by Sausage & Bean Soup; Arancini (crispy rice, scamoza and red sauce); Burrata al Panna; Kale Salad; Funghi Pizza; and Tagliatelle Bolognese, the last two enhanced by red pepper flakes that we requested.

Fox restaurant group is good. I can’t recall one bad dinner at one of their restaurants. North offers surprising taste combinations at very reasonable process. The atmosphere is lively and service is perfect. My favorite dishes are the beet salad and the salmon dish (the best salmon dish anywhere!). The Nutella trifle is sublime (I would never think of combining... More
