    Sitting upstairs is a better option if you object to the downstairs noise level. The pear salad to start was quite good and is large enough to share. The sock eye salmon and the swordfish were prepared as requested and really good. The pig dish however was dried out and tough. We all loved the breads and could have made a meal of it,especially the focaccia. Our waitress was lovely and attentive.

    I hesitate to write a negative review, so I will first begin by saying that my very first visit to North during restaurant week was for lunch and it was FANTASTIC. Because of the great experience, we decided to come back for dinner the following week, which was no longer restaurant week. Unfortunately, this experience was not as great. My boyfriend ordered the pork belly which was much too fatty. There was just about 5% meat and the rest was fat. Despite the fact that pork belly is supposed to be fatty, this one was way over the top. Sorely disappointing. I had the veal, which was considerably better, but the underlying puree had way too much butter. It overwhelmed the taste of the puree. We were pretty bummed at the end of the night. However, every restaurant has an off night, and our lunch experience was great, so we would definitely try them again. Don't let this negative review deter any newcomers! By the way, service was exceptional on both occassions, so I must give recognition for that :-)

    The menu has bee thoughtfully chosen and sourced from local providers. Each dish was unique, but still had a hint of those flavors you're craving. The squash soup is divine. The kale salad had a wonderful lemon-flavored dressing, not too harsh. We ordered spaghetti squash as a side dish and it did not disappoint. Save room for the giant toll house cookie at the end.

    Dined on 11/14/2014
    We waited 30mins for our reservation; we were seated next to the door and spent the majority of our meal with various people standing inappropriately close to us. It was the worst table in the place, and if they hadn't been so busy and clearly unconcerned we would have asked to be moved. Our waiter was disconnected and only interacted with us to ask if we wanted bread. They were obviously overbooked and didn't seem concerned that it took over 30 minutes for each of our courses to be served. All told, we were there for dinner for over 2 hours which would have been ok if the experience had been pleasant. Although we were looking forward to this reservation, I am significantly disappointed in our experience.

    The atmosphere was ideal for a pleasurable eating experience- light and minimalist décor. The service was professional and prompt. The food was superb and one could apprehend it was prepared by an experienced and expert chef. If one appreciates good food that is at once both interesting and extremely appetizing North is the restaurant for you!

    Took my boyfriend to North for his birthday. The service and food were excellent. Our waitress was very attentive as was the rest of the staff. The food was just delicious and the portions were quite copious. It was our first time there and it will not be our last - we were pleased with everything and I would highly recommend North whether it's for a special occasion or not.

    If there is a rating above outstanding, that is what North deserves. Without a doubt, the most delicious food, with any special dietary requests honored, with ease. The experience was perfection, as was the service. All waitstaff was exceptional, and went way above our expectations. (Please salute the friendly, and speedy service to the team offering the delicious breads throughout our meal. ) Loved the treats given at our departure. Can't wait to return, and will continue to recommend North for all who enjoy perfection.

    Everything was sensational and the portions were very generous. I don't know where to begin I loved everything we tried. We made sure to get different items for each course so we could try more things. The chocolate chip cookie was beyond the description. It should be described as a skillet cookie. We had the absolute best waiter ever, he could not have been more helpful. North is one of my favorite restaurants, too bad it is far from my home. I would be there every week.

    Food was outstanding from the cauliflower panacotta to the whole roasted pork (A MUST) and the white chocolate ganache. Great pairings, minimalistic arrangements. Congratulations, Chef!! Servers constantly dropped other table food at ours or were walking around back and forth w same plates trying to figure out which table they belong to.

    Four of us went for Hudson Valley Restaurant Week. The selection for the entrees was limited so we settled for brisket of beef, which was OK but not memorable. A bottle of wine was reasonable,chardonnay, but unremarkable. When I tried to order a beer, I was given a list of about 20" craft" type beers. None were familiar to me so I asked for any that were . The answer was no. I settled for one that the bartender chose, which I did not like. The service was quite attentive and the squash soup was also good. The desert was imaginative (olive oil cake), but not that good. The wine by the glass seemed overpriced, as were the beers. We chose North because of excellent reviews. I am sorry to have to disagree.

    Excellent service and ingredients. When we first ate at North we fell in love with the place. Absolutely the best food in the area and definitely up there with great NYC restaurants. But the past few times we've eaten there we've found the menu and ingredients to be just as good but the seasoning to be lacking. The food has gotten rather bland, at times even tasteless. It's a shame because the effort and ingredients are the same. Just a little better seasoning would make a huge difference. And less black pepper so we could taste the food more.

    I went here for a late lunch on a Sunday afternoon and found the food not as good as the dinner that I ate here last year. I am impressed how North tries to have seasonal food on their menu. But the poached were virtually raw and the sausage was a close cousin to a Jimmy Deans patty. The atmosphere is sophisticated-casual and inviting with sunlight streaming through the french doors. Not sure whether I would make the 20 minute drive to come here again, but I might give it another try.

    Food was terrific, homemade pastas (three, one gluten free) , lovely selection of salads and other appetizers made from locally sourced ingredients, there were two of us dining, one of us is on a sodium restricted diet and this restaurant went above and beyond in meeting our needs. They were just simply amazing, caring, patient and actually prepared food that was not on the menu on a Saturday evening with a packed dining room. Our server was so patient checking and re-checking with the chef to make sure that foods were indeed salt-free. . .we highly recommend. Excellent food overall salt or no salt! Also nice that restaurant has a number of gluten free options.

    Every staff member was personable and seemed very happy to be working there. Danielle (front of house) was terrific. Try the Hazelnut egg appetizer and the eggplant fries with honey and salt. Really good as an appetizer (though listed as a side). Dessert: we tend to look for chocolate, and there was only one possibility, but it also turned out to be a highlight. The chocolate chip cookie served in its own little cast iron pan (hot) with the substituted chocolate ice cream (instead of vanilla) was a wonderful cap to the meal. If I were hard pressed to find a negative, I would say maybe the kitchen relied a little too heavily on baby Marigold blossoms for flair. They can be a little strong to taste (hopefully we were supposed to eat them). :)

    We had several appetizers and a couple of entrees. Although its very exciting to come and try new meals there is a danger because the dishes are constantly changing, so there is no way for the chef to get a real feed back on his creations. As a result we were a bit disappointed with some of the platters: one was too spicy the other too sweet… yet some of the platters were delicious. Our server was very nice and knowledgeable and because of that overall we had a positive experience. We'd come back again sometime in the future, but I can't say that North is a priority on my list right now.

    Overrated and overpriced: $18 for a simple tomato salad, for example, and $25 for a glass of pinot noir. The service was attentive and pleasant, but it was so dark I could not read the menu, and so noisy I had difficult hearing across a table for two. The food was passable but not outstanding in any way.

    Always a fantastic meal here. The kale salad is a great standby. We each had the veal entree which we'd highly recommend. But everything here is good. If you're not one for New York state wines, ask for the wine list. The owner is typically present and visible--energetic and friendly--and his style shows in the waitstaff who are efficient, witty and charming.
