We had our wedding reception here 10 years ago. When we heard that they were shutting down this part of McEwan’s ventures we jumped before it was too late.
We loved it the attention to detail 10 years ago and enjoyed the food and the venue. We appreciated the food on Saturday night and even though the wine pick was mixed up , we loved the atmosphere. Sad to see this chapter close

Jacked their prices up as the restaurant closed. Nothing special about the ending to a great legacy. Rushed and mixed service. Seemed like a money grab. Great manager who was trying her best!

This was a special occasion, not only because of our son's 19th birthday, but also because we are a 'Foodie Family', and love to experience the cuisine of top chefs and restauranteurs. My daughter (a huge Food Network fan) was over-the-moon thrilled to eat in a Mark McEwan restaurant. We're sad that North44 is closing, but looking forward to enjoying Chef McEwan's offerings at his other establishments in Toronto.

One other thing - the service was impeccable - the staff so friendly and helpful. That further contributed to the sheer delight of the meal. We loved every course.

Thanks for a great experience.

My first time trying their duck confit and it’s absolutely amazing! Love the kitchen staff consistency..everything is always flavourful and on point. Service is awesome per usual and I definitely enjoyed their desserts. Sad to hear N44 will be closing down this month. It’s honestly the only solid restaurant in this area for fine dining. Well definitely revisit Bymark/One in the future but N44 was definitely my favourite.

I had heard that North 44 was closing at the end of July. So my husband and I wanted to dine our last time there. Good thing we did, we were there for the end of summerlicious week. The 3 course menu was outstanding! We also ordered 3 different kind of oysters, which was outstanding as well! Thank you North 44 for our past dinners there.

Food was “ok” except for the chicken, which was OUTSTANDING. Wine selection is poor, but you can find a couple of gems. Servers need to be trained for sure: for example, wine is poured 5oz at a time, not 10. #afakesmileisbetterthannosmileatall

Food and ambiance were wonderful, as always. The only thing I want to point out is that the server seemed very stressed out and jumpy. Which made me stressed out with each encounter! The place wasn't particularly crowded, so I'm not sure what was going on with her. But she was pleasant and gracious, and everything was delivered correctly and efficiently. I just wish she'd have been calmer; it would have really helped my experience.
