Was the 2nd visit. Food was amazing, Vito was awesome as the manager and VERY attentive to all customers! Service was good this visit, a little slow a time or two. But to be fair, they were very busy and the service from our 1st visit was the best I have EVER seen, so the expectations were high to begin with. I highly recommend reservations and the Chef's Board!

My husband and I stopped by for a late lunch on a Sunday. The Chef's boards, salads, and Sangria's were perfect for a hot, lazy Sunday afternoon. The waitress was very helpful with finding something other than salads that we, as grain free eaters, could eat. No matter what way of eating, this place has something for everyone!

A wonderful birthday lunch, featuring entrees with unusual combinations and so much flavor. The service was wonderful. Although the acoustics can be way too loud, on this Saturday noon, it was PERFECT!!

North has been our ‘go to place’ for some time, but this time, things weren’t clicking. They were busy, but they usually are. The tables on either side of us had water and bread before we did and they arrived later. The food wasn’t especially great this time either so it wasn’t just our waiter. I’m sure we will go again, but it’s down the list right now.

Overall, we had a great time with great food, as usual. I downgraded a few things simply because this was Memorial Day and the restaurant was very busy, so a little slow and noisy (to be expected) and, unfortunately, my wife had vegetables that were varied in temp. One was nice and hot, but the corn and cauliflower were warm, at best and some was almost cold. It was eaten and I did eventually mention it to the server (did not get the cold pieces until almost half eaten and not bad enough to require a return of the meal), but at least worth noting for her to, I hope, mention to those preparing the veggies.

The food was delicious. Our server Alexandra was super. She refilled our water glasses brought our food piping hot and was very pleasant. We all enjoyed ourexperiece. My husband's spaghetti bolognese was especially delicious. The portion was so large that he had enough for lunch the next day.

Unfortunately the food was off this meal. My friend got sick after eating the scallops. The short rib main was different—more rich and meat not as tender. We love North But last night was definitely off.

A week before this visit, I was at North and ordered the spaghetti and meatballs. and it was delicious...the meatballs flavorful and moist, and the red sauce was excellent. I ordered it again this time and it was a totally different experience.....nothing was the same. The meatballs were hard and dry and the red sauce was ordinary. It was as if I was in a different restaurant. Our guest ordered a different pasta with chicken which was OK, and my wife had the Branzino which was good. Food this time gets a 3 rating. Service and ambiance were fine.

Spent my mom’s 90th birthday Thursday afternoon (5/24) with Garrett at an outside table with the misters keeping us nice and cool. We had roasted cauliflower and bursts for apps, which were fresh and beyond delicious. Chicken piccata pasta and the scallop specials were sooo tasty and then dessert including 90 candles - ok, not really, but she loved the one just as much! My favorite restaurant in Tucson! Don’t miss it!

Overall not bad but while it was not real crowded, service could have been a bit better, drinks came before the water, had to request a lime for my beer, had to request bread for the table of five. Gave our orders and two had salmon with specific instructions for each, one rare and one well done, both came well done??????, otherwise all was acceptable.

I was quite disappointed with North for changing their menu to exclude ghnoci from both of their their short ribs entrees. I ended up ordering their short ribs pasta meal which was very bland as it was served on a pasta with herbs but no sauce.

North is a regular dining experience for our family. The service is always excellent and the ambiance upbeat and fun. The food is fresh and consistently well prepared with enough variety for everyone. Hard to beat for casual dining in that niche.

We were there for dinner on Mothers Day. We found the menu to be rather limited. The noise level was over the top, you had to practically shout to the people across the table. My chicken parmigiana was burned around the edges and the pasta side dish had the wrong sauce. The sangria was good but served in what looked like a small water glass. In the plus column our waiter was great, friendly ,competent and gave very good service. Overall our experience at North was not very good and I would not be inclined to reccomend this restaurant to friends.

As always the food was excellent - almost everything was excellent. The only problem we had was the time it took for our server to take our drink order and later to take our lunch order. He asked if we wanted bread and we said yes. It was at least 15 minutes before we got it. People that sat down after we did were already eating their lunch before we got ours and we just had a sandwich and a pizza. The restaurant was not overly crowded so we do not know why our lunch took so long, We will be back again for sure.
