    Our reservation was honored promptly, and we got a table that was comfortable without being too noisy. The food was A++. We started with burrata with grilled bread, good to the last crumb. The wine list was notable for having interesting choices from Long Island. Our main courses were excellent. We ordered a side of corn that was spectacular. It tasted entirely of corm but better. Peach crisp for dessert was another standout. Although we live a meaningful cab ride away from the North End Grill, we are already talking about our next visit. Service was excellent too.

    Recommended by a coworker back in California. The food was awesome! The waiter had recommendations for the table, all which were also amazing. The place was pretty dead at night, but since it was such an amazing experience, we all assumed it must be a "go-to" for lunch time!

    This was one of our many visits to North End Grill. With the change in chef, the food quality has remained excellent. The sommelier Mia picked a fabulous wine to pair with our meal. The rest of the service was just adequate. I was accustomed to excellent service with a lot of individual attention and this time it all fell kinda flat. I didn't see that many familiar faces, so perhaps there has been a big shift in staffing or they were having an off day. I can say the experience was a bit disappointing in comparison to my previous visits and gives me pause about returning with so many other options in the neighborhood.

    Wish they had burrata every time, but we make do when they don't. This place has you from the bread. The service is very friendly and experienced, so it makes having such wonderful food a very relaxing and enjoyable event. Had friends from out of town join us there for dinner recently and they thought it was divine, thanking us profusely for introducing them to this as they would have not discovered on their own.

    Waiter seemed fairly bored and uninterested in providing a decent level of service- something you expect at this type of restaurant. We were seated outside- 2 members of our party not completely under the awning and it started to rain. Waiter just shrugged when we asked for another table. Really? Luckily the rain stopped.

    The food was fine but definitely not as good as the prices would have dictated. The best good item was the duck fat fries... Those were amazing. The lamb chops were ok but were too thin for my liking. Our waitress was terrible. She seemed to very unhappy about her job. She brought us out food am there weren't any problems, it was just her attitude. Not friendly at all...just going through the motions. The dinner definitely wasn't worth the price. I would not recommend it unless you went for the beer and fries.

    I reserved a table for 4 executives; one of which was the CEO visiting from Europe. When I called to confirm the reservation I had made 2 weeks prior through opentable, the "reservationist" advised that there was no such reservation. She said they could accommodate the party at 12:30pm. I told her that a member of the party was vegan and she said that was no problem at all. I also requested a table to the side, as secluded as possible and she said no problem again. When the party returned to the office, I found out that there was NOTHING the vegan could eat and the restaurant didn't even offer to make something. Further, the table they were sat at was right next to the kitchen in a virtual walkway! I will NEVER frequent this place.

    We were lucky enough to get a table outside on a wonderful breezy evening and really enjoyed a family style dinner with a lot of apps, sides, and a couple of entrees for 5 diners. Everything was delicious, especially the crabmeat appetizer, the creamy burrata with grilled ciabatta, & the grilled and seasoned brussel sprouts & the cauliflower. LOVED the desserts also !! The staff was VERY accommodating and we really appreciate their "ownership in the restaurant " to make sure we have a wonderful dinner !! We will be back soon ;)

    Honestly, I've never been this far south in Manhattan! It's quiet down there. Took a sunset sail from Battery Park and was looking for a higher-end restaurant for our group for afterwards. Google and voila!: North End Grill. The menu looked impressive and did not disappoint once we were there. Started with the shisito peppers. Delicious, but they are delicious everyone. Sea salt, olive oil and an open flame. No biggie. The potato, egg and pancetta pizza was amazing, with the richness of the yolks balancing out the salt-sprinkled pizza crust. For my entree, the whole branzino, which is my favorite fish. Here, as it should be, simply prepared and delicious. Perfect. This place is worth the trip downtown.

    I picked this place because of the great reviews. As I entered wih a friend to let them know we made rsvp's the hostess looked at us and walked the other way. A man came and sat us outside. We waited about 10 mins to get our drink & waited half hour for our food order. The main hostess walked over and apologized for the delay & insinuated we would be comped drinks on the house. Never happened! Will never come back here & food was greasy & flavorless.

    I had been to the North Ave grill in the past and did not have the best of experiences, I am so happy that I decided to come back. Our service was really outstanding. Kim was the best and went out of her way to make our visit to the restaurant a well received one. We came from brunch, my mother had the waffle which was a little sweet for my taste but she really enjoyed it. I had the house cured smoked salmon and crab salad, both of which were delicious. The server even brought us the beautiful cheesecake that wasn't even on the menu. I will definitely be back!

    From the moment we walked into this beautiful, spacious restaurant and were led to our table, we knew we were in for a fantastic evening. The waitstaff were attentive without being intrusive, the special drinks (blueberry mohito and rose sangria) were unusual - refreshing twists on the usual drinks. The charred pepper side dish, snacks, for instance the smoked sable with beets and sour cream and the appetizer which 4 of is shared (the pizza with pancetta, eggs and potato) were exquisite. We all had the seasonal shellfish bake, iceberg lettuce with blue cheese dressing and blueberry cobbler with vanilla icecream. Every bite of each thing we ordered was perfection! We can't wait to return.

    I was having my largest client for lunch while he was here in NY. He was staying downtown so I wanted to find a place close to his location. Since I am not familiar with the area I researched online. I was impressed by the website and the reviews I read. I decided to give it a try, with fingers crossed. The first thing I said when I walked in the door was "oh this place IS nice!" The food was fresh and amazingly tasty. The service was impeccable. Some places in the city can be a little snooty, but not here. Everyone was super friendly and made us feel very welcomed. I will be back! My client also loved it and sent me a follow-up text thanking me for taking him to such a great place. I think he will also be back next time he is in the city!

    A very special evening enjoyed by four of us at North End Grill. The smoked sable,burata grilled octopus and oysters were all delicious starters.We all had the bronzini for main course.it was buttery,moist, and perfectly cooked-excellent!! We shared three desserts,particularly loving the rhubarb crisp with smoked vanilla?ice cream-but ALL were good. the wine list was nice, and after a few "tastes" we enjoyed a pinot gris. The service was outstanding--friendly,and helpful-and conversation possible on a summer friday eve.. They also have a special of $1.00 oysters at the bar and patio from 8-10pm... We loved the evening and will be back!!

    Since our first visit in February the chef has changed, but this has had no bad effects. The menu items are still creative and flavorful, the wine list is carefully chosen, the service is solid, and the room still gets packed with eager eaters. Every dish we chose was delectable. All the staff members we encountered were upbeat and friendly.

    It helps that I work in Battery Park City for sure but it's really the food that makes this worth the trip. I go for lunch regularly but also come here for dinner when I can. The service is lovely, they have high end menu options but without the high end prices or the requirement of a prix fixe. The dishes are flavorful and inventive but remarkably simple. The single malt scotch selection as well as the wine list helps round out the experience.

    Small but daily updated menu with butter-melting seafood, lamb and steaks. Small to medium portions, but decently priced for what you get in terms of taste. Very extensive wine and whiskey lists, with most items accordingly priced for the successful. But some good deals too. Food is amazing (milk poached Halibut anyone?), ambiance is business and conversation friendly, improved by outstanding service.

    Having eaten at Calliope we had great expectations for its former chef, now at North End Grill where we had eaten twice under the previous chef and not liked it. We asked that the octopus appetizer be divided in the kitchen. Reluctantly the waitress asked and returned to say the kitchen was "willing" to divide. Why should the request have been a problem?The trout was okay but the pork chop was awful. It was not a chop (chops have bones): it was a 1/2 inch thick small piece of mostly fat under overdone cabbage. We waited far too long to order wine and when ordered waited ten minutes for it--and too long between courses. And a sour, sour waitress. We live in the neighborhood and we may try again, but not anytime soon.
