    I don’t usually write reviews, but I felt that I should. Let me start by saying the food was phenomenal- super yummy and fresh. Delish! My problem, however, was that despite making a reservation, the staff acted as though they didn’t know where to seat us, and we were rushed through our meal. (Granted, we were only a party of 2, but it shouldn’t really matter.) The waitress asked us halfway through our appetizers, “so, just appetizers today?” which made us feel pressured to hurry up. This all made sense when, as soon as we received our entrees, we were asked to move to a smaller table for two, as they had a big party coming in who needed our table. Needless to say, my friend and I were a bit annoyed by this. Again, food and atmosphere were great. But our experience was definitely affected by us feeling rushed/us needing to switch tables. I would recommend North for the food, but I hope anyone who visits has a better experience than we had.

    Our favorite cocktail on the North menu is the Sicilian Margarita, so naturally we started with a round of those. We split the Cacio e Pepe pizza, bomba style (a must try, at least once) and the Squid Ink Tonnarelli. Our server let the kitchen know we would be splitting the dish so it was nice to have it pre-portioned out for us. The whole entrée was amazing but the wild fennel pollen was the shining star of the dish along with the tonnarelli of course, prepared to al dente perfection. We went all out with a tiramisu, an espresso for him and a cappuccino for me. The perfect ending to a delectable meal.

    Restaurant has become overpriced over the years. Food doesn’t wow me like it used too. Seems to be fresh out of the microwave now. The atmosphere is so busy and loud that it does not make for a very relaxing dining experience.

    Last couple of visits to North have been disappointing. They’ve changed their preparation on the Calamari and my salmon dish was over cooked and not particularly interesting. Sad because North has always been one of my faves!

    Food was outstanding. Service was a bit slow to start but after ordering the food came quickly and was worth the wait. Biggest area for improvement is the space between tables. It’s a very cramped space.

    We like North but this time it disappointed us. We went there for an early NYE in the late afternoon. The Pre Fix NYE Menu was not available until later on, which we didn’t realize. So instead my husband ordered the Rosemary Ham & Crescenza omelette and said it was mediocre. I got the Italian Farm Salad and it was fine, but not great. My Aperol Spritz was good. Overall though it was a disappointing experience.

    Wonderful food. Husband had the short ribs and I had the hanger steak. We also had the garlic bread that was delicious. Wine with the meal and husband had pumpkin butter cake. Noise level always high but you just expect it. We did a table for 2 by the window towards back door of restaurant so it was a little better. Our reservations were for 4:45 and we left around 6;30 so it may be quieter later. Server was great

    Party of 4 for engagement party. 1st time for 3 out of 4, after numerous previous unsuccessful attempts. Arrived very early (6pm for 8:15 dinner reservation). While waiting in bar, had cocktails (wines & Amaretto Sour) & pupus (Appetizers). Good wines but Am. Sour was so-so (wouldn't order again, inferior liqueur, swt/sour mix). Appetizers (Arancinin & Calamari) were delicious, well prepared & would order again. Lady next to us ordered Zuchini slivers but delivered to us mistakenly. She gladly shared & they're tasty too. 4 different entrées ordered: Squid Ink Tonnarelli pasta & 2 other pastas (Spicy Vodka Rigatoni & 1 other). All excellent. I ordered Short Ribs. The only item to fall short (pun intended): short ribs were tender & tasty (could improve with a bit more flavor: add wine or brandy, herbs, spices?) but portion size needs to be a bit larger & with more of the braising sauce. More Polenta too please & vegetable accompaniments were overdone. Tiramisu dessert was outstanding. Would love to sample others next. Server was very courteous & attentive. Will return to sample others offerings
