Great food and great service. Didn’t realize they would have a special New Years menu that had almost all fish options but the few non fish options were amazing!! Definitely recommend

Way too many fish options on the menu. One of the dishes tasted like fish however there was no fish in it, the server didn’t check on us until 30 min after our food arrived to correct this. Never stopped by to get us another beverage! Horrible service. Will not be back.

One of our favourite Barrie restaurants and they accommodated us by letting us add 2 additional guests last minute. Food was great, service was great.

Expresso martini is excellent and so was all the food! Only one small thing to mention, we sat against the wall to the kitchen and it sounded like a dryer was constantly running. Not sure what the noise was but it was quite loud and lasted throughout our dinner.

Penne a la vodka is the best! They make an amazing lasagna and chicken parm.
Breadsticks are great- our waiter was attentive without being intrusive. Highly recommend.

The place was very busy and it’s pretty obvious the servers are not necessarily the most experienced but that seems to be the norm lately. It’s a nice atmosphere however WAY too noisy whereas tables had to nearly yell at each other to be heard. The food portions (for pasta anyhow) are insanely large. It’s almost a waste. The seafood linguine easily had a whole “box” of pasta on the plate. When I use the term plate, I should refer to as platter. If you’re a big eater, this is your place.
Shuffling patrons that are twosomes around the restaurant mid meal to accommodate a table of 4 is just wrong. If you seat a twosome at a table for 4, let them finish their meals. It was a choice you made to seat them. If it were us asked to move mid meal to accommodate you squeezing more patrons in, not a chance.
When your servers place plates of food in the ground to shuffle other items on the table…not cool. Ever.
Maybe midweek and not during what’s the start of the holiday rush, would the place likely shine. This first experience, will sadly likely be our last vs. many other establishments.

Great experience at 147! It was our first time here and service was excellent and the food was delicious. Good portions for the price. My only complaint would be that the tables are a bit too close to eachother but otherwise everything was fantastic and we will definitely be back.

Food was amazing, our server was also great. The vibe was a little different than expected. Music was more what you'd here at a bar, and it was a little loud.

I would recommend coming here!

Took 30 minutes from being seated to receive a drink which came out wrong- ordered flat water and received sparkling. Appetizer came out after our entree- it was clear server forgot about it because we had to remind him about ordering it and got it halfway through our entrees and were still charged for it on the bill. Did not enjoy a drink (only had 2 sips) told server who took it away from table but I was still charged for it on bill. Overall it was a terrible experience we will not be returning.

Once again we were blown away with the exceptional atmosphere, friendly service where it's like visiting old friends and food that not only looks phenomenal but tastes amazing as well.
Short rib, bruschetta, polpette and the fish appetizer special were amazing tonight.
Thank you for a memorable Birthday evening

Apps were very good.
The chicken parm was excellent as well as the gnocchi but the ravioli was a rose cheese sauce and was very rich I would ask for a red sauce next time

First time visiting and we greeted promptly with a choice of seating areas .Had a view of Kempenfelt Bay . Service experience was awesome 👏.
I had the Frutti Di Mare very tasty but the Parmigiana Chicken dish was a very tough chicken.Should have sent it back to the kitchen. Everything else was great.

8:15 reservation, was bumped to 8:30.
Showed up at 8:30 and wasn't seated till 9:15.
Seated us at the back, next to the nosiest and most abnoxious bunch of people, F bombs were flying everywhere......I believe friends of the owner.
Couldn't carry a conversation....Terrible atmosphere.
Food was good, but will think twice about going back
