    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.

    The moment we walked in the door we knew we made the right choice, The hostess was friendly, our waitress Sara was delightful she made great recommendations for our meal, checked on us often and provided friendly conversation. We had Short ribs with filet and vegetables, the carrots were The best, we also had Roasted Pig which my husband raved about. We definitely will be returning to North.

    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.

    A good friend and I have enjoyed about 7 lunches at Restaurant North before I took my wife up for a mid-week dinner last Wednesday. AN ASIDE: the prix fixe 3-course menu at lunch offers beautiful and delectable courses and is a tremendous bargain (currently at about $25 TOTAL) So: the food is out of this world, service is attentive/proper/well-trained, wine list and bar options are stellar, setting is lovely/welcoming/very comfortable. We both eat gluten free, and there is obvious training with the staff -- all ingredients are known, wait staff verify everything with the chef. I eat at Gramercy Tavern once/week & judge all other restaurants by that standard. Of course North is a different scene (compared to GT), but all else on par!

    used to love north, the menu isn't as good as it used to be. my tuna had something that tasted like turkey gravy on it. not that i am going back, but too bad you got rid of the gluten free snicker doodle cookie in the skillet. when i request a table downstairs in advance and are forced upstairs because the owner is accommodating friends, it's annoying. upstairs is quiet and downstairs is lively. completely different evening.

    We were celebrating our 11th wedding anniversary and at the recommendation of a friend, we booked North. Our first impression of North was not great (and they knew about the anniversary). We were seated upstairs in the corner directly behind the air conditioning vent. The atmosphere upstairs was stagnating. For twenty minutes, our server spent more time talking about her personal life with a couple nearby. Tired for our waiting for our server to return with our drinks and the lack of service, we asked for another table. We were moved downstairs, which had a better vibe and much more energetic. The restaurant redeemed itself - they treated us to drinks and dessert for our anniversary, and the service downstairs was superior to upstairs.

    My husband and I spent our first anniversary dinner here and it did not disappoint! I have been in restaurant management/hospitality for over 15 years and was impressed with the thorough service and the attention to detail they provided us. They happily accommodated my pregnancy by offering a "mocktail" which was unique, different and equally delicious. The three courses we chose included confit of chicken wing risotto, squid ink cavatelli, lovely sweet and sour shortribs with sauteed greens and seared top round, tender veal over pomme puree... my mouth is still watering! Thank you again for a wonderful meal and also for the fresh baked muffins to go that I enjoyed with our kids the next morning

    Restaurant North is always a favorite for it's farm to table food done amazingly inventively. However, we waited about 20 minutes for a table we had a reservation for which was empty but they just couldn't get it set up? Also, the din in the restaurant is very loud so its hard to hear the people you are seated with. The food is outstanding so it makes up for the flaws.

    We've been regulars at North since it opened, and this last visit was disappointing. The chef is terrific and the food was terrific as always, far better than almost every suburban restaurant. But we waited far too long, well over 40 minutes, between our appetizers and our entrees, and I'm quite sure no one on the staff gave it a thought. This may be ok and understandable with a large party, but not for just a party of two. I loved the scallops, but honestly, does any one think three is the right number of scallops? And if a portion is going to be small, perhaps someone could have warned me and suggested I add a side dish? Finally, I have a special love for Ethiopian coffee. But $12 for a cup? I don't think so.

    It was our first time to North. The experience was super. Ambience was calm and airy. Our server was fantastic. The wine list is comprehensive and worth the time to explore. We had their signature Bloody Mary's while we took the time to pick a bottle. The combination of tastes is genius. We had the pork belly with a polenta sauce. The biscuits and seasoned pepper and mint butter should not be missed.

    North WAS our favorite restaurant in Westchester and we were saddened by our last visit. The food was served cold. Wine (our selection) was sub-par, but in a fine restaurant, we would have been given an alternative when we commented on our level of disappointment. The service was far less enthusiatic than on other visits.

    I really enjoyed dinner on a busy Saturday night. Food was delicious and the service was professional friendly and attentive. My only criticism is with the fact that my entree included only 3 scallops for $31. There was a large, medium and medium/small scallop and it left me in unsatisfied from a portion size perspective.

    We really like North, however, they are horrible at reservations. We had 8 pm reservation and didn't get seated until 8:30. Our server, while pleasant was slow. My dinner (veal) was served cold. And, all night we saw muffins delivered with the check. When we got our check, we had no muffins. When I asked we were told they had run out. That was insult to injury!

    I've been a big fan of North and have been there 5 or more times for dinner. It's been outstanding each and every time until my most recent visit. When we were seated our waiter told us that they were out of scallops. Okay... that happens. So my wife ordered tuna. The waiter then came back and told us "no tuna" so she ordered veal. Bread was brought to the table, but the waiter apologized that there was only one kind... they were out of the others. Service was very slow. We waited a long time to order a bottle of wine, a long time to order our meals and a long time for the food to be delivered. Previously meals were great. This time it wasn't bad... just ok. I may be back, but there are alot of other restaurants I prefer.

    We enjoyed everything we ordered! We started with the lamb carbonara. Wow! Amazing flavors from this dish of homemade pappardelle. We also enjoyed a salad of farm fresh tomatoes delicately flavored with fresh herbs and olive oil. The pork belly dish was outstanding as were the short ribs. I usually never order deserts, but made an exception and ordered the panna cotta. It was one of the lightest and the creamiest I have ever had. The chocolate chip cookie served with homemade vanilla ice cream was also terrific. Loved the presentation of our dishes and the goodies to take home. 5 stars all the way! The downstairs room is lively and fun. Next time I'll ask for a table by the window.

    This was the worst meal I have had in a long time--and really expensive. Each of the five of us had fish, which was presented in tiny portions surrounded by dark, greasy vegetables. Something called cooked root vegetables appeared on the table, and they looked like something that I would pull out of my garden and throw in a pan without thinking of how they were presented. Yes, the setting is nice, but you still want a good meal.All in all, very disappointing.

    The food and service were great. Our meal took a little longer then the restaurant would have liked but my wife and I hadn't even noticed. At the end of the meal they brought us a free desert and apologized for the delay without us ever complaining about anything. Service like that is what serperats good restaurants from great restaurants. I will definitely be returning and I will definitely recommend to everyone I know.
