Too loud. HORRIBLE server. Stick to Arcadia location.
Great food and good ambiance.
The people, service, and food are always amazing. It’s just surprising how fast the food comes. We had our mains before we were finished our appie or salad. Too bad.
Back room was nice and quiet for business lunch. Love the front for the vibe when it's a casual dinner out but the back room is much preferred for a business lunch. Server was attentive but not overt. Yucca chips were soggy but the Tuscan Tomato soup was yummy. Happy that valet is right outside the front door.
Food and service was amazing as always. Great recommendations for beverage and food pairing
As usual with FRC restaurants food was great. However, I’ve now been to this restaurant twice and both times I’ve had a long wait for my table, well past my reserved time. I noticed that this was impacting other customers too. I’d have to think about whether I was prepared to wait (outside, no drinks offered) before booking here again.
Great celebration spot. Had a fun birthday dinner!
Food was excellent, and service was fast, attentive. Super loud inside, so we sat on patio, which was much better.
This was my son’s choice for his birthday dinner - otherwise we would not have gone there. The food is Ok but the noise level is so bad that even when you shout across the small tables you can’t hear what the other person is saying. If you want to be able to interact with your dining partners - go to someplace quieter.
Never disappointed at North! We are snowbirds and dine at North 2-3 times/week. Can always depend on good food, great service, and a vibrant atmosphere!
Our second time there in 5 days! Can’t beat Sunday happy hour but we are just as happy to go there for lunch and dinner. We don’t go to Phoenix without coming here! LOVE IT!!!
The tables are packed in tightly coupled with all hard surfaces makes for a very noisy venue. The tables for two are on the small side as well so the ambiance is not the most pleasant. We had a grilled artichoke which was a rather thin one without much succulence. My chicken parmigiana was thin and a bit dry. So.....the experience did not meet my expectations.
Can't wait to go back again. Everything about the place was great.
There was a special menu for Valentines Day... it was not great. The place was packed, and super noisy. This is the second time we have eaten here, doubt there will be a third. They tried to make the food special but it really missed the mark. Over priced for the quality.
Great food and environment.
We ended up leaving because we wanted something that wasn't on the menu! we decided we'd wait and come back this weekend for the dish we wanted. The waitress was really nice to us regardless of our choice to leave! We were so excited to come for valentines day but will definitely be back! The girls that greeted us were very sweet and the ambiance was lovely. It looked like everyone was enjoying themselves!
The food was great service was good. Only mark down was because they had a special menu that I didn’t know about before I booked reservation. Good ambiance they pack a crowd, lively atmosphere
It was Valentines and busy but everything was good
This was the second time we’ve enjoyed the special Valentine’s menu. Excellent meal and very good service. We were seated in an alternative dining room, and it was much quieter than the main dining room, a plus.
We had Valentines Dinner at North in Kierland Commons. The service was excellent and the food was very good. I love their Martinis too.
Food was good. Artichoke was undercooked but they took it off the bill. Great vibe.
Service got off to a slow start. Had to go to host desk and tell them we must be invisible. Things turned around from there. Who we assume to be a manager took our order and then after 15 mins our server (black guy)) all of a sudden turned up. Guess he doesn't pay attention to his stations. After that, he was on point, but too little too late. We gave him decent tip but on lunch hour he shouldn't have been MIA. Love the food but when you have to hunt down your server and parking is a premium, not sure less than great service makes this cut.
Way to loud inside to have any kind of a conversation. Outside seating would have probably been a better option.
I chose the gluten free pizza. It was TERRIBLE! I am confident any of their gluten free choices would have tasteful ingredients. But the crust was so very hard and at times too difficult to bite into. And this was with asking the waiter how good the crust was before I ordered it. I took pieces home to my son who consumes everything. He also hated it.
My wife ordered the Drivers Scallions. A very good choice. Just wished for the price it would have had more than three scallion.
I just can't get enough of their smashed crispy potatoes and the interesting fresh pasta offerings.
Always love the tasty food at North!!! Great atmosphere!!!
Just average. I went with associates who seem to frequent this place. I was not particularly impressed. It was not bad, just not a standout in any way. I would not personally return unless at the request of clients.
Great food and service. Our only complaint is the noise level at this restaurant ruins what could be a great venue. Outdoor seating noise level is ok if you can get an outdoor seat, do it.
We enjoyed the restaurant both times we were there. Friendly service, good wine and excellent food! Lots of choices available.
Too noisy to enjoy
Honestly not great this time. We have gone to North on numerous occasions, this time it was a DUD. We we placed on the far east side of the Annex part of North. The kids playing ping pong at Shack Shack yelling and chasing the ball was annoying the entire dinner. Drinks came fast, food we had to wait forever....and I mean forever. The food was mediocre, not up to the usual quality. The appetizer Artichoke should not have even been served, we even mentioned that to the server. Just a meal that absolutely finalized putting a distance in returning again.
