Great Pizza and Wine
I recommend the pizza, it is very good. My husband had the prosciutto wrapped chicken and he was very pleased. Overall the we had a great experience and will definitely go back.

Arrived a little early and
Arrived a little early and was greeted by a great bartender - attentive and eager to please. Recommended a nice pinot grigio - bottles were half price. Wait staff did a nice job. Food was high quality. Even though you're overlooking a strip mall parking lot, the atmosphere is inviting. Good place to share plates.
5/29/2013 12:00:00 AM
Food was excellent. Dining area was a little cramped. Service was pretty slow. It wasn't super busy, I just think the servers don't put pressure on guests to turn tables quickly. It was a relaxed meal, but a little slow for our liking.

Perfect place to go without kids! Great food, wonderful server and the menu had a lot to choose from. The outside tables were extremely small and we had a hard time fitting the plates, drinks (wine glasses and water) and utensils on it. :( We will definitely go back!

We brought a group to celebrate
We brought a group to celebrate my fiancé's birthday. We love eating here and we always have a good experience.
We will be back soon.

Great Father's Day Dinner
Our family of 3 had a great time at NoRTH for dinner the Saturday before Father's Day. Even though they don't have a kid's menu, they were very accomodating to our 9 year old daughter. She loved the zucca chips! Our waitress was one of the best servers we have had in a long time! The food was delicious but maybe a tad bit salty. We would definitely go back and try some other menu items.

Not your normal 'chain' restaurant
We have been to NoRTH once before, and decided to return; it was a wonderful as we remembered. While this is a chain, it is far from what most expect from a national restaurant. The food is imaginative, and the chef(s) who execute it are fabulous. Don't pass it up just because there are several locations. The service is what you would expect from any upscale restaurant, and the decor is modern, but relaxed.
6/29/2013 12:00:00 AM
Will definitely return
Most pleasant atmosphere, friendly and helpful staff, wonderful food.
6/29/2013 4:00:00 PM
The staff was great as well
The staff was great as well as the outdoor dining. The food was super along with the staff. Enjoyable evening with friends.

Great Italian in Leawood
Very good Italian food. The house-made pasta was excellent, and the sauces were quite good and fresh. Diners who want some healthy options will be pleased - try the kale salad with the dressing on the side... delicious. Good variety on the menu. The service was friendly, and helped to create a relaxed atmosphere even though the restaurant was very busy. The wine list was really good, and Wednesday nights are half-price bottles - great values.
7/10/2013 12:00:00 AM
Everyone got something different and we all agreed that everything was delicious. Wait staff was courteous and attentive. Management made sure to check and ask if everything was good and could they get us anything else. Very enjoyable place and would recommend to our friends.
7/12/2013 12:00:00 AM
Still my favorite
As an out of toner here every two weeks, I'm here at least monthly and this is usually a stop. Food is great as well as the service.
7/18/2013 12:00:00 AM
If you like Risotto
Their new summer menu is wonderful, love that the Risotto is still on there. Make sure to check out the little Specials of The Day menu you get with the full menu, great deals on there.
7/18/2013 12:00:00 AM
Some of the BEST service!
The menu options and food at North are very good (flavorful dishes with fairly healthy options). I rarely take the time to write a review. However, the staff and service here are amazing. The staff is friendly, efficient and they work together as a team. I have only been to this North location for lunch a few times, but will definitely keep going back.
7/18/2013 12:00:00 AM
Food is excellent. I travel
Food is excellent. I travel from out of town and always like to visit NoRTH during my visit. Although they changed the menu a few months ago, I have requested an item that the chef had removed. They have been able to accommodate my request. Calamari is unique and fresh. I get the short rib pasta (not on the menu) - highly recommend it.. Also the cherry bread pudding is amazing!!
7/22/2013 12:00:00 AM
Our food was excellent! We ordered pizza, lasagna, salmon and chicken dishes. They were all excellent! It was a fun place to celebrate our daughter's birthday. The servers were very attentive as well. I would definitely recommend this restaurant to others.
7/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
The food was wonderful! They have great happy hour deals. Our waiter was fantastic. I would definitely go back.
7/29/2013 12:00:00 AM
Very enjoyable evening
We asked our server for recommendations since some of the people in our party had not been there before. Her suggestions were very good. Try the meatballs appetizer. And don't skip dessert; it was exceptional
8/6/2013 12:00:00 AM
They have the best spaghetti and meatballs with big, fat homemade noodles. My husband had the pork, and said it was wonderful.
8/9/2013 12:00:00 AM
Had a mishap on the appetizer, but the server and manager took care of it swiftly and promptly. Food was great and Service was better. A good place for anyone looking for some Italian food.

Fresh Menus with the Seasons
Love how this restaurant updates its selections with the seasons. Great salads in the summer. Stop in for Wine Wednesdays, 50% off a bottle or a glass.
8/14/2013 12:00:00 AM
Good Food and competitive prices
My wife and I really liked some of the appetizers that were a lower price before 6 pm, such as the spaghetti and meatballs. Next time we will probably get two of them. We also had a cheeese and meat tray. It was good, but not as good as some other restaurants.
The short rib entree had a very good flavor but also had a lot of fat. However, it was rib meat not filet mignon.
The lobster chowder was very good. It has a very good spice balance and crunchy corn. I highly recommend this soup and the spaghetti and meatballs. The spaghetti was thick and cooked perfectly. The marina sauce was nice and the meatballs were tender and flavorful.
The service was Excellent.
8/16/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great pasta & pizza
North now makes their own pasta & it is fabulous. The lasagna was delicious & the crepe-like noodles were the best since Italy. The pizza is hand-tossed & terrific!
8/17/2013 12:00:00 AM
We had exceptional service from our waiter! The wine guy stopped by as well, chatted about some Italian wines, gave us his card and very knowledgeable. The manager stopped by and inquired about our meal and service.
You can have a great meal, but if the service is bad, you will never go back!
8/17/2013 12:00:00 AM
Good food good service
The food was outstanding and a very nice wait staff. I would certainly go back! I eat out a lot and the food was surprisingly good.
8/18/2013 12:00:00 AM
Anyone who thinks all pasta tastes about the same (those who go to Fazolis especially), you need to pay a little more and try this place. The pasta is better than any you have tasted elsewhere in this town.
8/19/2013 12:00:00 AM
NoRTH is great (as usual)!
NoRTH is the place to go for excellent service and food, one of the best in Johnson County. Our meals (my wife had the heirloom beet salad and fish while I had the "simple salad" and scallops) were prepared very nicely and the chef accommodated my wife's dairy allergy with no trouble. We visit NoRTH a few times each year and have always enjoyed our experiences. When the weather is cooperative, the outdoor dining is very relaxed and gives you a place to enjoy a glass of wine at sunset.

North Out South Always Pleases
Lunch at North was as pleasurable as my past experiences there for dinner and for a casual bite and wine at the bar. North has upped the salad game, presenting a unique selection of vegetable medleys. The Italian Farm Salad and vegetable salad heavy with kale are substantial and beautifully presented. Our waiter wasn't as polished as the place and the plates in front of us. He appeared to have just rolled out of bed with sleepy eyes and "haven't shaved in two days" beard. He seemed slightly annoyed by our request for some of North's fabulous artisan bread and flavored butter. Still, he didn't dampen our overall experience. North needs to continue to maintain its high standards - its refreshing and fun.
8/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
Better than expected!
Was given a gift card to North. Went there with my husband for a weekend lunch. The chicken salad was delicious! We also enjoyed the wine and great outdoor seating.
8/31/2013 12:00:00 AM
1st visit on a date--delicious food and wine, excellent service. 2nd visit w/2 teen children--they loved it, I loved it--service was excellent again--food absolutely delicious. NoRTH will be on our "go to" list of places to dine!
8/31/2013 12:00:00 AM
Good food, fine time ...
North is a fun choice for good Italian food served in a nice atmosphere. We ordered salads and pizzas, and all were tasty and as advertised. Service was friendly and helpful, and it was an overall good experience.
9/2/2013 12:00:00 AM
Had a really great salad..I loved it so much I ordered one to take home for dinner...
9/16/2013 12:00:00 AM
Always enjoy North. Food is
Always enjoy North. Food is always good. Love the Zucca chips and the infused tea!
9/18/2013 12:00:00 AM
The patio is far preferable
The patio is far preferable to inside as the noise level inside is deafening. The owners have said there is nothing they can do about that. So this is a great spot when you can dine outside. Happy Hour offering of $20.00 Drink and Eat is an amazing bargain. The pizza of the day was excellent.
9/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
Wonderful evening at North
We really enjoyed our evening with good friends and great food. Our waitress was very helpful, friendly, and helped make it a good experience.
9/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
The new NoRTH was great!
We had an excellent time. The food was delicious; the service superb. The restaurant has improved greatly since its earlier days. We also were pleased by the reasonable prices. We will definitely be back!
9/22/2013 12:00:00 AM
Nice dinner with friends
Great pasta, good wine and a nice atmosphere. A very enjoyable evening at North.
9/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
happy hour delight
It was girls night out and we headed to NoRTH. Our server had dimples and called us Miss - great start! We ordered the bottle of wine and pizza of the day for 20.00 along with the Zucca Chips. It was all wonderful. We followed that up with a grilled artichoke and the soup of the day which was a salmon based corn and potato chowder. We had a wonderful time and the food and wine were delicious.
10/3/2013 12:00:00 AM
Dined here at Happy Hour with my husband, daughter and 2 year old grandson. Pricing very reasonable. We tried a variety of things. Olives, spiced nuts, spaghetti & meatballs, pizza of the day, chef's board. Chef's board was not as special as I had thought it might be. Everything else met my expectations. The house red wine was vey good. Sure we will be back again for dinner when it is just the two of us. All the staff was extremely helpful and attentive. Very friendly with the little one. We ate inside in a booth to contain the little one but would definitely want to sit outside in the beautiful patio area (weather permitting) when we return.
10/10/2013 12:00:00 AM
Sunday night is a good option
A nice option for a Sunday evening dining experience is NoRTH with its half-price on wine and smaller crowds than on Friday or Saturday.

Spectacular food and service
My husband and I were celebrating our 5 year anniversary and we both love Italian food. North had come highly recommended and they did not disappoint. Food was excellent and the service was super. We will definitely be back!
10/18/2013 12:00:00 AM
Another great evening!
Great service, excellent food. This place is always reliable and consistent.
10/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
Came here for our one year wedding anniversary. Made reservations, was seated within 5 minutes of arrival. I could only imagine just showing up and trying to be seated.
Awesome wait-staff. Attentive, but not overbearing. When they ask if you want an appetizer, the bruschetta is amazing! The bread and sundried tomato butter they serve is top notch as well.
I had the spicy shrimp pasta paired with the riesling offered and my beautiful wife had the chicken parmesan paired with the house red. Both dishes were fresh and delicious! Offered up fresh parmesan like most Italian restaurants. They delivered a small ramekin of fresh cheese vs. the grind at the table. I really preferred it to the overplayed showiness of grinding cheese.
10/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
North - nice place
Good atmosphere; very nice patio area and good service. Food was very good but a little pricey and fairly small menu.
10/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
The restaurant was recommended by a local employee of our company and we were not disappointed.
10/29/2013 12:00:00 AM
We brought friends from out of town to North as we often do. Again, outstanding service and wonderful food. Always a winner. Consistency is great and it is always nice to know you are going to have great service and a great meal.

A visit to North on Friday evening, November 15 proved to be a great choice for the food--fresh, excellent preparation and presentation. Our waiter was very good, too; he appeared much more personable and less hurried than much of the other wait staff. It was a busy place, filled with lots of fifty-plus fashionistas and hipster couples, but with enough regular joes to make it all work. The restaurant is also a bit loud, to where a private conversation isn't to be expected. Indeed, I sometimes heard more than I wished about my neighbors' lives. The fresh pasta was treat, however, and the roasted beet salad scrumptious. Tiramisu good, though slightly heavy on whipped cream and unconventionality. A finishing espresso was well-prepared.

Night out with the Girls
A met some of my girlfriends there for wine and to catch up. Wasn't aware of the great happy hour specials on food and wine. Nice surprise. We had a great relaxing evening with very good service. The dark chocolate gelato at the end of the evening was amazing!
11/17/2013 4:00:00 PM
I would recommend for corporate/family lunch/dinner
11/18/2013 4:00:00 PM
Great food. We asked for no meat in our pasta. No problem. Made fresh. Yummy!
