The service was good, it just took a while for our food to come out of the kitchen. The manager did come over and apologize for the wait and offer to get us something while we waited. We were having a good conversation so the wait didn't really bother us. We expect to return.

Our family of 5 (2 young kids) enjoyed a great meal of pizza and pasta. We had a little leftover of each and asked for food containers. However, while getting the youngsters out of the booth and into the car, we forgot our leftovers ☹️.
Ten blocks away we remembered and returned to the restaurant. The hosts understood our situation and proceeded to prepare Two New Orders! WOW! Talk about first class service. Very impressive.

Disappointing. Waited well beyond reservation to be taken to a back room restaurant with empty seats and a very different vibe. Server was overwhelmed. Kitchen backlogged. Poor execution.

We've been going to North since the day it opened 15+ years ago and it is still our favorite restaurant in Scottsdale! The food, service and atmosphere are top notch! North never disappoints.

We were seated in the back section, which I felt was preferable to the entry area because of the view and the more moderate noise level. Our waiter, Alex was extremely helpful in describing the menu items and helping us choose our dinner selection and accompanying wines. This is a northern Italian restaurant, so you won't find a lot of pasta dishes, but my wife did have the tagliatelle bolognese which was excellent. I chose the salmon with risotto over the short ribs only because I was enjoying my white wine so much. I wish I could have tried both. The bruschetta appetizer was the best I can remember. In summary, an excellent meal and a very enjoyable evening.

Had a reservation at 8pm. Seated finally at 8:30 in the annex part outside. Didn’t get our food until 9:30. Very slow service, not sure if waitress had tables I. The main restaurant as well, as we never saw her. Food was pretty good but won’t go back because of the service and slowness. I think they take on more reservations then they can handle

We love the food but it took 50min for our meals to come out. The manager recognized Nd acknowledged that it was not acceptable,and comp’d our entire bill. That to me was “making it right for the customers’ and for that I will continue to come there to dine. Thanks Rick!

We had to wait forever for entrees. Our waiter said the orders were mixed upon. A table of 8 or 10 who were seated way after us got their entrees ahead of us. I had to flag down the waiter to ask what the problem was. He said there was a mix up in the kitchen. Many of the items we ordered were given to the other table. We were comped the entrees but given the fact it took over an hour to get our food it was still a bad experience.
