After multiple sub-par experiences, I will not be coming back here -made a reservation for 8, wasn’t seated until 8:15 -I selected “outdoor seating” in my reservation. They tried to sit us at an indoor table. I told them what we had selected and we had to wait another 10 minutes -I also selected “celebrating a birthday” in my reservation. They had no idea. I told them at the end and they got me a dessert free of charge, which was nice -we were seated at a table that was way to close to a high top table. The waitress’s but was in my face for half the night -extremely loud inside, not that much better outside -our waitress seemed like she couldn’t get rid of us fast enough -I got the spicy rigatoni. It was okay. Very expensive and 2,000 calories for just that one little dish? Absurd.

We got sat in the center of the restaurant when there wasn’t anyone there yet so we felt a little uncomfortable. Food was so yummy. Service was good, but I don’t know if they were understaffed but it seemed like there’s was a lot of ppl standing around and only our server was working. We waited a long time before we got water and drinks and then my drink took forever to arrive. They burned one of our pizzas so our food did not come out together. Had to eat in steps. But overall we enjoyed our time because of the company and didn’t get too bothered that everything took awhile

Requested a standard table and were seated at a hightop by the door (cold!). Requested to move (which they did) but there was confusion about who was our waiter. As a result, we had spotty service ( no one refilled drinks) but the food was good and it was a very crowded night. Wouldn't go back for a celebratory evening. Too loud.

Definitely lived up to my expectations! Everything was delicious, from the bruschetta, to the pasta, pizza, and right down to dessert. Wish I would’ve remembered to take photos of every item we ordered.

I don’t know if it’s the Cheesecake Factory’s influence since acquisition in late 2019, lingering effects of the COVID pandemic, or skimpflation, but we will not return to North after this most recent experience. First the good - the ambiance and vibe is fantastic. The food is still good (but has degraded from past experiences) The bad - we checked in early for our reservation, yet still waited 15 minutes after our reservation time to be seated, and then sat at our table for 15 minutes before anyone came by to take our drink orders. Then another 15 minutes before our drinks arrived and could order an appetizer which took 20 minutes, and by then we had no drinks left. In total it took almost 2 hours to get some drinks, and appetizer and mains (no dessert). The food was still good, but is nowhere near as flavorful or high quality as in the past (before 2021). The Arancini was decent, but cold (see waiting time above). The prosciutto pizza had almost no goat cheese or fig on it. The short rib cavatelli was more oil than cream sauce and no taste of horseradish. For those 2 dishes, the missing/lacking ingredients are what make those meals so good…. Finally, while wine/drinks prices are a little higher than other places, the food prices have gotten ridiculously high for the quality you get. We left having paid $120 for an overall mediocre meal consisting of 2 drinks, 1 appetizer and starter salad, and two mains. Very disappointing…..

They were fast when we asked something. Even on weekdays, it's busy! The Salmon was yummy. The fungi pizza, parmesan chicken and half chicken were delicious. Omg their hazelnut chocolate cake with gelato was woohoo good!

The food preparations are tasty and well done. Menue selections have variety but the pasta and pizzas are really good along with their appetizer selections. Wine selections are very good and reasonable. The service was really friendly and excellent from Benjamin. This is one of my favorite places when I am in the Irvine area…

I checked it out online and thought I’d give it a try for my birthday. I was a little nervous when I saw how busy it was- it holds a LOT of patrons, so I thought service might be slow but not at all. My server was super friendly and was very attentive and I couldn’t believe how fast our food came. Absolutely delicious! I highly recommend, and I can’t wait t go back.
