“Excellent, creative and wonderful food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 19, 2009

The food here is incredible. The service can be somewhat spotty if only because they're usually completely swamped. It's a very small location with an even tinier kitchen. It's amazing what they create in that small space though. Everything down to the garlic fries are absolutely delectable.

“Good food, terrible service.”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 15, 2008

I used to eat at North End several times a month; they have some good specialty breakfast items. The problem is not the cuisine, (good, but I can find ‘good’ a lot of places); it’s the total lack of customer service. I had noticed situations before- rushing my to-go orders on the phone, and heavy sighs when asking for something extra, but my last experience left me disappointed to the point of exasperation. They made a mistake on my order and when I asked for it to be made correctly they initially ignored me and then did nothing to fix it. I’m an easy going person, I didn’t yell or demand anything, I just left. On the bright side I have some great recipes to give a try at home now, because I won’t be returning here.
