Second time back. Had to return to have the cod sandwich again. Could not stop thinking about how good it was.

Absolutely wonderful.
We chose Berkley North to celebrate our daughter’s 28th birthday, but will definitely return just to enjoy an outstanding meal.
Our host was welcoming, very knowledgeable about food and wine, and fun.
We let our host select the items for each course and nothing disappointed.
The wine list is unique with something for everyone. The drink list oozes creativity and the bar host is amazing.
The restaurant is casual, yet sophisticated. There was a good variety of upbeat background music. The tables were cleverly arranged for privacy and personal space.

The owner and servers at Berkeley North are all very friendly and efficient, and the service is always wonderful. The food is perfectly proportioned with a nice presentation, and is oh so delicious! (Especially the rib-eye steak, fresh cheese, and the pasta!) There is a good selection of wine and craft beer, and fancy cocktails if that’s your thing. The decor and ambiance is perfect for a gathering of friends, a business lunch, or a night of romance. I highly recommend Berkeley North.

We had the tasting menu and it was fantastic! There were plenty of choices and our server, Andrew, gave us some great recommendations. We hadn’t realized the menu had changed to include meat dishes ... my husband was thrilled! We enjoyed a couple of pre-dinner cocktails that were outstanding. We will definitely be back soon!

We enjoyed a little taste of a big part of their selection with the 5-Course Shared Menu. The subtle flavours in the Fried Green Beans melted on your tongue, while the Arctic Char left us swooning in our seats...but don't forget to start with the Fresh Cheese.

My girlfriend and I went to Berkeley North for Valentine’s Day. We had their 5 course meal and it absolutely blew us away. Everything was next level delicious. It’s not a cheap place by any means but we left there with smiles on our faces. Perfect portion sizes for sharing, beautiful presentation, and by far the best tasting food we have tried. They truly are artists. Could not have asked for a better meal.

Went to Berkeley North for lunch with a friend. Service was very good, our waiter was friendly and attentive. The restaurant is cozy with a pleasant atmosphere, great for dining with friends. The food was delicious; we both had salads and added char for protein, and there was a hint of mint which was unique. The only downside was the menu was limited in selection, as was the wine list. I prefer a nice glass of white wine, but opted for sparkling as the white wine choices weren't what I would typically purchase. Taste is very unique, so my wine preferences may not be yours. Overall would recommend this restaurant for lunch.

Great location for events at Hamilton Place. Excellent and very friendly service. Thoroughly enjoyed all food that our group of 5 ordered. Well balanced and flavored. Great happy hour drink specials. Never felt pressured or rushed. Would definitely return.

We came here on February 3rd for my birthday get together with close friends. My fiancé and I moved to Hamilton in June of last year and ever since we moved I've been wanting to check this place out.
It did not disappoint. Loved the atmosphere, all the brick and the greenery. So cute!
I'm also vegan and the waiter was very respectful and offered to let me know what I could and couldn't have. The food was unreal. So yummy.

We will certainly be back!

Really liked the very creative and flavourful menu.
Thought the Charr could have been served with more rapini/sides. Also could have been better plated. The small plate did not make it look very impressive.

It was just plain nice! The space is beautiful, happy hour drinks and the food is bursting with flavour. We can’t wait to go back just the 2 of us or with a group.
