We like to eat in the back building which is a little quieter than the main restaurant. It was still a bit too noisy but the food was excellent and the service was impeccable. Very friendly , helpful and the waiter was knowledgeable about the menu. Love the all day happy hour on Sunday!

Met for early dinner with family- food and service were
great- had artichokes which are messy but tasty and garlic bread ( yum)- all entrees from beef tenderloin to chicken pasta to spagetti bolognesi to margarita pizza were excellent. Lastly their affogato was memorable and large enough to share for 2.
Thank you for great dining!

The food we had for our lunch this past Saturday was amazing! My husband and I shared the zucca chips as an appetizer. I had the special of the day - brussel sprouts pizza (so good, some of the best pizza I have ever had!) and my husband really liked the meatballs.
Our waiter was informative and very friendly. The noise level is the only negative in my book but it would not keep me from returning. We would like to try the patio next time.

First off, I’ve heard great review about this place. When we were seated, it took about 15 minutes for our waiter to come over to us. We ordered or NYE special menu 3 course dinner and it took FOREVER to come out. We were waiting there for 45 minutes before we got our appetizer. The meal itself was super basic and had next to no flavor whatsoever. It was very disappointing. At last, we were waiting for our dessert and they d

First, North was one of my favorite restaurants until last night. My family and I (6 of us) were at the Kierland Commons North location hoping to enjoy a New Year’s Eve dinner and time at one of my favorite restaurants. While starting my starter course, a member of the service team dropped a tray full of plates and glass jug right on my back. I get that accident happens however I felt the incident was poorly managed by the management team. After the initial shock that this just happened from myself and everyone in the restaurant, one of server asked if I was ok. You would think that the manager on duty or someone in management would also come by to assess the situation and/or do a follow up on the matter after things settled from shock. But to my disappointment, not one stopped over to say a word and I know they were very much aware of the situation. How sad is that? And Yes, it hurt and I was in pain, and they would have known that if they had just cared. The food was great as well as our sever however given the lack of care for their customer by management, I will never dine at North again and will be sure to spread the word.

The food was very good but we got seated outside - it was cold so the area was enclosed with clear plastic and there were space heaters. The chairs were very uncomfortable and they played loud "techno" music which I find grating, especially when I am trying to enjoy a nice meal at a restaurant. If you go here, try to get seated in the indoor dining room.

We were about 5-8 minutes late with our table...not that bad. The only real problem that we encountered was the size of the serving. Our entire party noticed the change...we eaten dinner there in the past.. we could not remember something like this ever happening at a Fox restaurant

The zucca chips and the chef's board are a must have everytime we go! Delicious and fresh everytime.
As usual, the beef short rib was cooked to perfection. Hubby had the mafaldine and they were also incredible. Our favourite restaurant in the Phoenix area.

Chef Bob, I am so sorry your food was bland. That is not our standard. I would love to learn more about your experience. When you have time please reach out to me at the restaurant and ask for Shelbi. Hope to hear from you soon.
