I got the water knocked over and my gnocchi had a hair inside of it, unbelievable. I must say service was good. Also must say the gnocchi were amazing but after the hair, it took the magic away and killed the night for me. I guess these things sometimes happen but unfortunate 2 glitches back to back. They did make me another plate of gnocchi and did not charge - however for me this took the magic out of my night and couldn’t eat more....

The place is about the food and does not disappoint. I like it for a quiet night out after a crazy week. Not a see and be seen but sometimes that is exactly perfect! Service is solid and the room is small and cozy. But the food is the main event. There is no bad choice. Enjoy.

The place was busy, but we spent 2 1/2 hours in getting our food.
It also was very noisy. Service was good, food ok, but the waiting is too much.
If they don't improve on the kitchen service, I will not be coming back.

Food was good, what there was of it. Two small pieces of Bison for my main course and a few fork fulls of Salad for my appetizer.

My girlfriend had to make herself something to eat when we go home, after spending $300 on dinner!

Server was in a bad mood, and continually reached over the table or over top of my girlfriend to serve me or put pepper on my food.....so very unprofessional!

The place was half empty on a Saturday night and used to be one of the premium restaurants in Toronto. They have let it go now and I assume with no body coming anymore will be closing down soon.

Perhaps it is time as they have lost their enthusiasm for serving their customers.....

l have been a long time fan of the McEwan brand and quality.

I was disappointed with the food.

The fish was delicious but it was sitting on a bed over processed/over cooked spicy vegetables soup!

I would have preferred the vegetables to be fresh and crisp and clean. $48 is just not justifiable for this dish!

We came with fairly high expectations given the venue... but our meal and the service went way above our expectations. Of note, our server noticed that we were enjoying a nice conversation over our appetizers (she did not know at that time that it was a special event) so she came and asked us if we wanted to wait before the chef got going on our main course . I am not sure I have ever experienced such good service and it made the main course even more enjoyable once we were ready to move on to that stage of our dinner. Outstanding!

Simply put, North 44 sustains. It has literally never let us down. The menu seems to be constantly revived, and the service is unparalleled. Elaine the hostess, in particular, is beyond amazing. This is a high end dining experience that feels like family. I cannot say enough about it.

We have been to North 44 many times over the years mainly for special occasions. This time it was my husband's birthday. Service was outstanding as well as the food. We both had the bison tenderloin entree- it was cooked perfectly to order and the flavours were amazing. The tomato and buffalo mozzarella salad appetizer was equally pleasing. We have never been disappointed at this restaurant and that's why we keep going back.

Cuz today is my boyfriend's birthday, and when I booked North 44, I wrote down some requirements for them. And I got a call from North this morning for confirming the reservation. And we talked about the details about my requirements. Then we went to North, the surrounding looks terrific! Services and foods are awesome! Actually foods tasty is similar with by mark I don't know why lol. Really worth the price.

The food tasted excellent, but it was really small portions. I think it was due to summerlicious.
However, I was disapointed with the presentation and quality. We had the steak that it was probably no more than 4 ounces and the vegetables were corn and peas. It just look cheap for a restaurant of that caliber. It is unfortunate as I feel I did not experience the restaurant as I could see the difference in presentation and sized at the other tables :-(

We went to North 44 for Summerlicious and as usual we were not disappointed. However, the service was not up to the usual North 44 standards. I can't say it wasn't good but it was not what we are accustomed to as we go there often. The food was delicious.

My wife had the Bison tenderloin and I had the veal, along with a side order of roasted ramps. All three items were superb, as were the oysters we had as a starter with a glass of champagne. Service was pretty slow and we took our own bottle of wine (1995 Chateau Margaux) which they were very slow to open for us. There were also a couple of little kids running around which took a bit of the edge of our romantic, anniversary dinner. I still give it a 5 star rating and the food is highly recommended.
