“Great Lunch”
Reviewed September 4, 2013

My wife and I recently had a wonderful lunch at North n the Domain. I had the Margherita Pizza and some meatballs while my wife had a large salad with grilled salmon. These were all perfectly prepared and arrived at the table at the peak of readiness. Our service was terrific: very prompt, friendly and attentive. We enjoyed the mixed berry sorbet for desert. It was tart and simply delicious. North is somewhat noisey but has recently upgraded to outdoor seating area. I highly recommend North.

“Modern Italian”
Reviewed August 19, 2013 via mobile

So delicious! One of my favorites for lunch dinner or happy hour. They're usually packed so I recommend reservations or showing up early happy hour.

The zucca chips are addicting. The fonduta is incredible. It has a tomato jam dollop in the center that combines mixes savory with slightly sweet nicely. I love artichoke and theirs is great. They do it differently (not your typical steamed) and with a lovely lemon aioli. The meatball app is also excellent. It's served with garlic bread.

Chopped chicken salad is only okay. The farmhouse is excellent. It's served on a large cutting board with salami slices.

All the entrees are yummy. The pesto is simple and delicious. The mezzaluna/ravioli dish is great.

The wine selection is good. To save money you can get a glass of the house table wine for $5.

“Great food, great energy”
Reviewed August 11, 2013

Loved the food and service. Prices were reasonable Energetic crowd. Age group 30-50 would be my guess. Pretty loud inside, but good feel. Wine list is pretty good, but could be expanded. Would definitely go back.

A little overpriced but the food is wonderful. Not the best brunch I have ever been to but the service is impeccable.

“Outstanding lunch”
Reviewed July 22, 2013 via mobile

My wife and I dropped in for lunch with no info on the restaurant other than it had pretty good ratings. I expected good food but what we got far exceeded expectations and gave evidence of a very competent kitchen.

My wife had the Tuscan chicken salad sandwich with a side salad. Both were very good and the combo was a bargain at $10. I had a very competent Caesar salad and Pasta Staccapezzi (sp?) which was exceptional - al dente pasta, great flavours. Bravo! Only negative was the pasta serving was very large and I really shouldn't have eaten it all.

We will definitely go back. They are very close to getting a five for food. Highly recommended!
