    The noise level was so loud even with us sitting next to one another. The service was very slow which we were warned of with a sign. I’ve had this waitress several times and she has been very good but was apparently stressed due to having too many tables to tend too. My drink I wanted with dinner came after I had finished my dinner.

    Service was slow and our waiter had an abrasive attitude that was unpleasant. We have been coming to North since it first opened and have recently noticed a steady decline in quality. Not sure if we will be back with many other far more pleasant options around town.

    As always everything was great. They were short staffed but did a great job and kept the service level high. The menu had a number of delicious choices..I had Bolognese and my wife had the Rosemary ham and crescenza cheese omelette. Both were serve fast and hot. We also shared an Italian Butter Cake for dessert which was a new and very pleasing finish to the meal.

    I have yet to have a bad experience here. Food is always outstanding, service is pretty quick, servers are always friendly, attentive, and helpful. Price is good for a good date night spot, only complaint would be the volume. Surprisingly full for a Tuesday night so kudos to North but it was a little louder than expected. Overall wonderful experience once again!

    We really enjoyed our dinner here. The service was excellent, (thank you, Skye!), and it appears that the manager knows what they're doing, as everything was pretty much perfect! I had one of the best salads I've ever had, and the other food that our table ordered was enjoyed as well. It did get a bit noisy shortly before we left, but that happens when people are enjoying themselves with friends and family!

    Karli was an excellent server and remembered us from coming in a few weeks earlier. Knowledgeable and friendly she was great at explaining nuances of the menu and details of the food, drinks and desserts. Food was excellent and just enough to fill you up and even take a little home if you did not want to finish the whole plate.

    We had good lunch overall. Food was good but prices were a little high considering the portion sizes but is fitting due to the location. Only complaint is that my son had orders the Alfredo and added chicken. When The dish came out it didn’t have chicken and it took over 15mins for a sliced overly seasoned dry chicken breast to come out. By this time most of the table had finished their food and my son had finished about half of his thinking that they may be making a completely new dish for him with the chicken added. Nope, they did not…🙄 I’m sure it would have been a delicious dish had they made it per our request but we shall see I guess. Though this situation was upsetting it won’t deter us from making a return visit as we don’t normally have occurrences like this when we do come here to eat. Our server definitely made up for the mishap with her charm.

    Really lovely space that comes with some of the best service staff in Johnson county. Cannot rave enough about how beautiful and well decorated the interior is at NoRTH. This is a good business lunch or date spot as well. Service is spot on and the range of menu items should meet most tastes.

    This place definitely does a great business. It was jam packed full of folks -- almost too many folks. The tables are spaced incredibly close together. So much so that the people at the table next to ours (about 10" away) kept interjecting into our private conversation because we were so close it was like we were dining at the same table. I felt bad for a gentleman in a wheelchair who arrived to dine with his guest -- and several folks had to vacate their seats so he could get to his table. There is really no distance between tables at all. It's also very warm if you sit by the windows. They have filtered blinds but those blinds are no match for the summer sun. The food was great and our server was very attentive.
