“Inconsistent”
Reviewed September 22, 2012

We have eaten at North a number of times. The best way to describe the food which always looks nice is consistently inconsistent. Inevitably my wife enjoys her meal and I pick the wrong thing. The last time the salmon was dry and fishy. The time before that it was the steak. The restaurant isnt cheap and borders on over priced given the size of the portions of some dishes. Other than that it is a pleasant restaurant with good service.

“Top quality food”
Reviewed July 31, 2012

Our experience at North was amazing. We booked ahead online and had an email confirmation that day. Be careful to specify whether you are dining at North (fine food) or North West (more casual), I inadvertently booked at the wrong restaurant but the staff at North accommodated us (thankfully it was not that busy).
The food is amazing. We had spinach salad with pistachio crusted goat cheese, scallops, sea bass and roast chicken stuffed with goat cheese and sun-dried tomatoe. All the courses were great and the service was fast and friendly. Their wine list is not huge but it has some nice wine for a reasonable price ($50 range).
I would definitely go back here again.
