Started out sharing an order of mussels & was immediately sorry I said I would share.
Two different pastas were ordered. One with brisket, the second was chicken w/mushrooms.
Both very tasty & worth exploring.
Sat down around 12pm. Place was empty, yippee! Great patio if you're not familiar.
North has been around for 15+ years. The menu has fluctuated over time. Sometimes up, sometimes down lol. Better to do a few things well than hit the customer with mediocrity.
Well North is on one of its upward projections and shouldn't be overlooked.

We were pleased to see the adherence to COVID protocols from when we walked in and through our dining experience. The outside area still felt like inside but with enough air circulation. Food was outstanding.

The outdoor patio was inviting - warm, spacious, airy. We felt safe eating there. The food was superb, especially the pizza with spicy pepperonis. Everyone raved about it. Luckily, I couldn’t eat the whole pizza by myself, so there was plenty to share! My family’s other meals were perfectly portioned. Everyone went home full and happy.

Waiting for the appetizers was a challenging, due yo a high increase in phone order meals gave us the sense that we where not valued as a dine in customers .

Angela was our server and she was outstanding! We will return because of the quality of the service and the food/wine. She gave detailed descriptions of the choice options I was weighing on. I need to try the Tuscan Chicken, the Branzino and the Bolognese. I had the Strozzapreti, all I can say is chef's kiss... We started with the white truffle garlic bread, OMG.

Our NYE dinner was, in a word, outstanding in every way. The smaller, 3 course fixed price menu for the holiday was more than adequate. Lots of excellent choices. Special mention to my appetizer, a wonderful blue crab risotto. As always, we requested outdoor seating and there were plenty of heaters to ward off a chilly evening. An excellent dining experience in every way!

Every time I eat here I rate this place with 5 stars across all categories. This time I can’t do the same, I had to return my utensils because they were dirty! During COVID I expect higiene the number one priority!!

I enjoy North. But I am surprised at the length of time it takes to get a drink from the bar. Even though the numbers of guests are reduced, it still seems to take a long time for food to arrive at the table. Overall everything is very tasty but the service is always delayed.

Why make a reservation when you then are made to wait for 15 minutes upon arrival? Service was super slow as far a drinks were concerned. Food came out hot and fast though. Almost faster than our drinks!

Only disappointment was that the server did not listen when my guest said "Dressing On The Side". so we had to hail them over to get another one made.

Our meal was excellent but one of the veg I ordered was very tough..not really edible. The waiter brought
a replacement which was only slightly better. Both orders were removed from the bill and the manager stopped by to apologize for the problem and offered to bring me something different. Those kind of things happen but I appreciated the excellent way the staff handled the problem. I love this restaurant. We'll be back.
