Hold the salt!Had a nice pre-Father's Day dinner here. The food was delicious, but a little on the salty side. Had a salad and halibut - both could've used way less salt! Great menu and service, not crazy about the ambience or "feel". It was quite warm in the restaurant (granted, it was 106 outside!), the noise level was beyond my preference for a Saturday night and there were quite a few young children. I prefer the North location in Kierland. Same menu, thought it's more upscale and low-key.6/15/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Food and ServiceThe Zucca is a nice starter and we love the grilled artichoke. The three fish entrees at our table were all delicious! A good chocolate dessert would top off the meal.6/14/2013 12:00:00 AMA New Neighborhood Go-ToHow did I not know that there was a North in Arcadia now? Well, whatever the reason, I'm glad I found it. It's a great location for a few drinks, lunch or dinner. The space is lovely, and the service was really above-and-beyond, including the hostesses, who went out of their way to make us comfortable while we were waiting for our table. We shared some pizzas and some wine, and it was all very tasty!6/12/2013 12:00:00 AMSunday BrunchLoved this place for Sunday Brunch, great menu! Service was great- we had a slight miscommunication on our order & management took care of it promptly (some items sound alike). We were allowed to enjoy the mistake, while waiting for the other entree which was nice and of course comped without it even being an issue or mentioned. Very professional staff, great ambience, and a wonderful place to catch up with friends over tasty dishes.6/9/2013 12:00:00 AMcelebration lunchthis was a great place for our group - we ordered 5 or 6 different things that we all shared - everything was very good. Two pizza's - one called the pig for meat lovers and the other was more of a vegetarian - a white pizza with onions/mushrooms that was great - would be even better if the topped it off with some fresh arugala. Service was very good - overall was very impressed and liked it more than the Kierland one. Would definitely return.6/7/2013 12:00:00 AMPerfect place for a mellow dateLike most Fox restaurants, North Arcadia is a beautifully designed restaurant with a modern / fusion approach to its menu. The layout / lighting of the open restaurant lends itself well for a mellow date night or even a special occasion - and the noise level never seems to be high enough to hinder a normal conversation. The appetizer's are great as are the "main's" that I've tried - not a huge flatbread / pizza fan so I'll recuse myself from touching on that part of the menu - however, the Salted Caramel Pudding is a MUST.
All in all, I've been here a number of times - I'll certainly come back again.6/4/2013 12:00:00 AMOverall Awesome ExperienceFantastic food, great service, and great atmosphere.6/4/2013 12:00:00 AMWorth every penny!!We have many choices of restaurants, even darn good ones, in the northeast valley. But few that deserve repeat visits often; this is one that does!6/3/2013 12:00:00 AMVery likeable!Good service! Good food! Relaxed atmosphere we'll go back. Just what 5 ladies catching up wanted.

I'm not usually a Fox concept restaurant person however this place is pretty good. I would definitely go back.5/16/2013 12:00:00 AMKeep to the Pasta at North ArcadiaNorth Arcadia combines rustic and modern in a way that I'm not sure works, but it is certainly a change of pace. For example, white - complete with upscale mark-ups - is served in water glasses. The pasta dishes are amazing. They are the reason to eat here: skip the traditional entrees. The gnocchi with short ribs is one of the best dishes in the Phoenix metropolitan area!5/13/2013 12:00:00 AMIt is normally outstanding,It is normally outstanding, one of my favorite restaurants.

Every dish I have tried here has been top notch with fresh ingredients and comforting tastes. Their happy hour specials are great, the service is personable and efficient, and the ambiance is perfect. I really cannot not say enough positive things about North.4/7/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food was good, but theThe food was good, but the pasta has a love it or hate it feel to it.4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMNorthThe staff was friendly, well-informed and very helpful.

I meet up with a group of friends that we had not seen each other for quite a while. It was noisey, but not too bad...we could still hear each other. Our server,Vanessa, was very friendly and patient with us. The service was ok. The food came out in a timely manner, but were missing utensils.
I do plan on returning, great looking menu3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food was fabulous andThe food was fabulous and the service very personal and friendly.

Neither one included a side salad.3/21/2013 12:00:00 AM5 starGreat atmosphere, the staff, food, drinks, and parking are all 5 star.3/17/2013 12:00:00 AMNot Thrilled About Valet ServiceExcellent food, high noise level - similar to the other North's. I just dislike having to use valet, esp after reading their claim ticket's description of how poorly we are protected.3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMAnother reason to drive to ArcadiaOur waitress was outstanding!! We asked questions of the menu and she was extremely honest and helpful!! The apps were the meatballs and the melted cheese (forgot the name). Meatballs had lots of flavor and the sauce was light and yet lots of flavor. We each had a different dish - our favorite was the braised short rib gnocchi, tortellini was also fantastic! Bolognese - also wonderful and the pork tenderloin a home run!! We were too full to try any desserts - although they also looked wonderful. We will definitely be back. Have been to North at Kierland - is it a different menu or have all Norths' changed to this menu? A wonderful night on a perfect night on the patio. When walking thru the restaurant, it seemed quite noisy.3/14/2013 12:00:00 AMJust moved to the ArcadiaJust moved to the Arcadia area from P.V. Much more people friendly. Seems that everyone is not so "Into Themselves". North is only 3 blocks from our home. Love the food. Servers are great.3/13/2013 12:00:00 AMSeriously,this was a car wash!!!!This a ultra chich restaurant the the Fox Group has fashioned out of a car wash. Great idea. Make their own past. Pizza are really good. They use non standard items on them, bake them in a wood butning stove and it all adds up to yummy!3/13/2013 12:00:00 AMGet the Braised Beef Rib withGet the Braised Beef Rib with Gnocchi and horsereadish crema.

We enjoyed a dinner of Italian comfort food in a casual atmosphere, while not being old-fashioned.2/27/2013 12:00:00 AMWe arrived early for lunchWe arrived early for lunch before it got crowded and sat outside on the patio. That was lovely -- it was a perfect day and the food was excellent. We had lasagne, a chicken caesar and a burger -- so we were all over the map on ordering. Everything was good. I think inside would have been very noisy, but outside was great.2/18/2013 12:00:00 AM
