A Friendly and Consistent Spot
Whenever we are in Cherry Creek we like to stop in here for either a big meal or a small bite depending on the time of day. Reliable, friendly food and staff. They have a great happy hour with 1/2 price bottles of decent enough wine (could use a bigger list). Great people watching. Restaurant has a fun and upbeat vibe. Do not miss their crispy potatoes. Worth a trip just for those. Also, nice patio dining if that's your thing.

The food was "pricey"...
My wife and I ordered a pizza for lunch and at $14.00 I was surprised at how small it was and there wasn't a whole lot of anything on it. What was there tasted fine, it just wasn't quite what we expected.

The server was a nice man, quiet, but to the point and not pushy. I wish I knew his name. Very impressed w/the short rib. I had the salmon -perfect mid-rare, nice presentation. Our guest had the chicken parm and enjoyed that it was a little different than the typical dish. Dessert - budino and chocolate cake, both fantastic! The wine: it was a decent list, but I'd like to have been presented a dessert wine/port/grappa list with my dessert. Panzano does this. I'm a huge wino, so I'm an easy sell for these situations. I would have purchased a lot more, given the opportunity from a menu.
We will be back and we will recommend to friends and colleges.

Cherry Creek Hot Spot
North is a popular restaurant in the Cherry Creek area. It is part of the Fox restaurant chain which includes many restaurants in Arizona and Denver. About a year ago Fox decided to change all their North restaurants to all Italian food and the transition has gone well. This is a fun place to eat and there is plenty of energy among diners and servers alike. The pastas are quite good and the portions are generous. One nice feature is that all bottles of wine are half price at happy hour (3 - 6PM). There also is a very good happy hour menu with lots of choices. Incidently, lunches also are excellent with some very imaginative dishes. There is valet parking - a must in Cherry Creek.

Make reservations! Great food, friendly service, updated menu, and a great place to people watch, too!

Spending close to five hours at North, I am very pleased to testify how great the service was, specifically Adam. He waited on us in a pleasant, non-impatient, honest and helpful manner. He's one of those waiters who pays close attention to when drinks are running close to empty and will refill without asking (club soda w/ lime). We had the Chef's Board and the Spicy Shrimp; both very good and ample portions for good eaters. All in all, I would definitely go back and hope we are serviced by Adam again.

Great Lunchtime Spot
Took a client here for lunch and they had great summer salads. Service was great and food was wonderful. Will be back.

Good food, nice atmosphere
Fresh food, well prepared. Decent selection wine. Nice for lunch with friends or co-workers.

Great food and service
This was a return trip for me and again I was impressed with the food and service!
8/7/2013 12:00:00 AM
While the service was a bit slow the good was excellent and they knew they were behind without anything being said by us. They provided a free appetizer and asked us to accept their apologies. This demonstrates their desire to exceed expectations in both food and service. Loved the restaurant.

Great Service Great Food JUST Great
Have been to North in the past and one thing caught my attention, the menu had changed, discovered that their menu changes with different seasonal items. Server, April, did s great job of making recommendations including a nice wine that equally satisfied both a Red and White preference. The atmosphere was lively, but not loud. North seemed to be busy most of the evening yet the layout did not make you feel like people were walking past you all the time. Highly recommend.

When West Head North
North has a great happy hour, a nice menu, super staff that know their clients and the menu. Always a pleasant and positive dining venue for either a full meal or small plates.. The space itself is kind of loud because of the acoustics of the building so if you are going for quiet and intimate...not your spot, otherwise an all around super location and experience in Cherry Creek.
8/10/2013 5:00:00 PM
As usual, we had a great meal at NoRTH. It is always an excellent experience to dine there. The service was a bit off but it was easy to see that the staff was "buried" and theyt made every effort to keep things moving.
8/15/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great food, great time
Very accommodating, knowledgable service staff, great food, wine and dessert.
8/17/2013 12:00:00 AM
North is GREAT!
I love NORTH - they have great food and great service! I love it so much I went there on my birthday! Great bar specials too!

Kale salad- yum
My friends and I revel in the delicious kale salad and shroom pizza at least once a month!
8/31/2013 12:00:00 AM
Lots to choose from. Salads are delicious as is the Margherita Pizza.
8/31/2013 12:00:00 AM
Nice time, good food
We'd always admired the ambience of North as we walked by the restaurant. Now that we've dined there, our admirations were confirmed.
9/1/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great As Always!
We always enjoy our food, service and experience at North! From the personable young women at the front to our wonderful server, Julie, we had great service and attention! See you all again soon!

This is one of our favorite
This is one of our favorite restaurants in Denver. It is not really priced for every day dining, so we end up there on special occasions. The staff are always awesome, and the food is spectacular Italian food. Everything is great and tasty. I love the bruschetta the most in the appetizer realm. The family really loves the chicken parm, but I have honestly not had anything here that wasn't just great.

A Fine Lunch Experience
Outstanding waiter, sensitive, attentive, subtle, nonintrusive. Salad of unique flavor, a bit on the small side. We were not outside but felt the lovely breeze from the large open windows. The great view was the aesthetics of the restaurant and people.
9/9/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great all around place
Very very good food and great service.
I have eaten here many tmes over the last 12 months and it is consistently good.
9/14/2013 12:00:00 AM
Excellent pizza and salads
Excellent pizza and salads in a convenient location. Attentive service and reasoable prices as well.

Love NoRTH in Austin
...so was happy to find a NoRTH in Cherry Creek section of Denver
9/19/2013 12:00:00 AM
We had a great time
We went to North for lunch on Saturday. The service was seamless, the kitchen accommodated my friend and my dietary restrictions, and, in spite of the speaker right above our table, we were able to carry on a nice conversation. We sat for an hour and a half, long past when we had finished our meals, and we were never without water and didn't feel rushed.
9/21/2013 12:00:00 AM
Always happy with NoRTH! Service
Always happy with NoRTH! Service was outstanding! The salted caramel budino was THE BOMB!
9/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
Whenever we travel to Denver we try and eat at least one meal at North. We are always impressed by the atmosphere, service and of course, the food. We ordered the calamari on arugula to share and it was one of the best calamari's I have had. Plumb, tender pieces of lightly fried calamari. Two in our party ordered the chicken parm and loved it. My husband and I had the branzino and it was absolutely one of the best we have had, perfectly prepared and accompanied by yummy spinach and cauliflower. No room for dessert :( Can't wait to return!

Vibrant Scene and Good Quality Food
The venue is vibrant with fun, energetic wait staff and, patrons and decor, all without making you feel cramped and bumped into all night. The food is innovative and high quality with a wine list that is mostly atypical of other restaurants, having the full range without snobby prices.

Lived up to Reputation (Almost)
I had heard, eight years ago, that North was the place to be seen, but not to eat. The food, I heard, wasn't great.
Did North live up to its reputation?
Nearly so. In general, the flavors of the food didn't pop -- the dishes on the seemed a bit bland for a Cherry Creek dining experience. The fonduta appetizer was an exception: original, delightful and mouth watering.
The atmosphere was good: trendy without feeling affected, but the music was loud.
The service was great. Our waiter was perfect -- prompt and there when needed, but not a nuisance who asks "how is the food?" too many times.
On the whole, I will probably give North another shot in the future. And on the whole, I would recommend it.
10/5/2013 12:00:00 AM
We got to the restaurant much earlier than we had planned since we were planning on going after my wife's late afternoon doctor's appointment which Kaiser changed to an earlier time. We were taken right in (wasn't crowded) and seated right away. This was our first visit and the food and service was wonderful.
10/9/2013 12:00:00 AM
Good food and affordable
Enjoyed the evening. Made reservations on OT and no issues with seating. We arrived on time at 6:00pm. Server was okay, maybe a bit too opinionated on wine selection. Food was good and well presented. Not as cutting edge as we'd hoped, but certainly very good.
My partner and I must be jaded as we thought the prices were incedibly reasonable, in spite of many comments otherwise on reveiw sites.
Definitely go back when we visit Cherry Creek in Denver.
10/16/2013 12:00:00 AM
Lovely dinner with friends
Had a very nice dinner with friends. They chose a great wine & we all enjoyed our meals. A bustling place!
10/18/2013 12:00:00 AM
My husband and I struggle to find restaurants in our area that we think are truly great, but North definitely met our expectations. Everything we had was fantastic. My husband said his pizza was the best he'd ever had at any restaurant (and he eats lots of pizza), and my scallops were amazing. I highly recommend this restaurant to any foodie who enjoys Northern Italian food.
10/19/2013 12:00:00 AM
Visiting from out of town.
Visiting from out of town. Easy to find and park. Wait staff very attentive. Appreciated managers coming by to make sure everything was to our liking. Menu was just right with enough options for all tastes. I had pasta which was hand made and it was delicious
10/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
Very good service, busy, vibrant restaurant. Food was very good not great. Restaurant while vibrant it boardered on noisey. It can be hard to hear.
10/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
Recommended by a local...
... so we went. In the heart of Cherry Creek shopping area, a vibrant upscale shopping district. Food was very good, not memorable, but the location was fun and the service was excellent. The food was a notch above the chain experience, but not a destination experience. Recommended for a fun gathering night with friends although the sound level was a bit high for conversation.
10/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
I have been here twice and really enjoyed both experiences. Staff is accommodating and knowledgeable. Great food. I had not known that they do a weekend brunch. Great menu items.
10/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
This was our first time for dinner and it exceeded our expectations. Don't miss the burrito salad. The diver scallops were outstanding and don't miss the Nutella dessert. While it can be a little noisey, it lends to a vibrant atmosphere. It is now one of our favorites.
10/30/2013 12:00:00 AM
When you are looking for a locale to provide fantastic cuisine and service that is attentive but not in your face, NoRTH is the place.
10/31/2013 12:00:00 AM
one of our favorites
we always enjoy this restaurant/ been coming ever since open/recommend to friends -- this last visit on Friday nov 1st was the best so far !!! so nice to go to a restaurant that just gets better and better !!! this time we both had delicious pastas with salads for starter/ nice Italian red wine / bread ...and outstanding assistance by restaurant personnel.
10/31/2013 5:00:00 PM
Great salads and sides
The salads are phenomenal at North and actually outshine the entrees; in particular, the heirloom beet and the burrata. The pastas are good, but not necessarily anything truly spectacular. The caramel budino provides a prefect ending to your meal.
11/2/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great night for a first date.
I met my blind date here. I found NoRTH on the web with great reviews and enjoyed the menu, but you never know just by lookin at photos and a menu online. The mussels and pork tenderloin were to die for, and perfectly cooked. The beer menu and wine selection were very good. We enjoyed a few beers and a couple glasses of wine which complimented the appetizers and dinner. The service was great, but not in your face to disrupt any conversation. Everything was reasonably priced and worth the moolah. Needless to say there will be a second date, and we really are happy for choosing NoRTH. Thx.
11/8/2013 4:00:00 PM
Every dish superb!
There were six of us in our dining group Every dish was enjoyed ! Great food from start to finish
11/15/2013 4:00:00 PM
The food was excellent - Short Ribs, Pork Roast and Scallops were done perfectly. The calamari recipe has changed again and I think this is the best recipe yet.
The server was extremely responsive and did a great job. Good experience!
11/29/2013 4:00:00 PM
They have amazing food and love the ambience! They are a little stingy with their bread but its delicious too!!!;)
12/4/2013 4:00:00 PM
Not the usual
The only reason I gave the food a good rating is the grilled artichoke was undercooked. The seasoning was excellent but was unable to fully enjoy the artichoke. Not something I would expect to be a usual occurrence and, certainly, would not prevent a return visit.
12/11/2013 4:00:00 PM
Excellent food & service
6 of us were seated at a round table that was just the right size for conversation. The service was good but not intrusive & everyone's food was properly prepared & sooo tasty.
12/14/2013 4:00:00 PM
The Pizza was just a little boring and needed more flavor but the other dishes were EXCELLENT. All the employees were happy, friendly and attentive. I would go again for sure!
