Sensational Service and Fabulous Food! That's the combination that keeps me coming back for business and for pleasure! Karl is a magician behind the bar and Matthew is one of the most genuine and passionate Owners in this city's new vibrant restaurant scene! I've entertained clients at Berkeley North from as far away as Kingston, Toronto and Oakville and they all will be back!
Excellent dinner experience from the food to the service. Very healthy and tasty. The cocktails were good too!
This lovely King William neighbourhood restaurant is a gem. The owners are lovely people who hire wonderful staff to provide an overall outstanding experience. The food is fresh and delicious with options for vegan and vegetarian as well as meat. They also have a top notch bartender who understands wine pairings and will make you any drink you like! Great for sitting inside and out or even just at the bar. We eat here frequently and I'm never disappointed!
I've been to BNorth 5 times in less than a year. Enough said!
We were a group of three who really enjoyed that appetizers and entrees were all suitable for sharing. The food was original and wonderful tasting.
Unfortunately sat over a cold air vent.... otherwise the usual highly enjoyable dining.
Exceptional food and service!! Will most definitely be back again!! Ordered from the sampling menu. Food was divine!!
The cheese toast is a must try! Definitely recommend and will be back :)
This is the fourth time we've been to Berkeley North and have never been disappointed! The food is wonderful and the shared plates allow you to try many different dishes. The staff, including the owner are incredibly friendly, helpful and honestly make you feel that you are a friend and they're happy to see you. Wonderful atmosphere! We were there on 'Soul Saturday' which was a bonus, as there was an amazing band playing on the street that just added to the fun ambience. We were there for dinner, but it was a great date night! Gotta try the shrimp toast, crispy chicken, or steak!
We had a great experience at Berkeley North. Our server, Matt, was attentive and friendly. The tasting menu was great value, delicious, and plenty of food for two. I recommend indulging in a half price bottle of local wine - an absolute steal for the quality of wine on offer. We will definitely visit again.
Great place to eat! The food never disappoints. The BLT is the best I've EVER had.
Great wine choices. A perfect spot to enjoy dinner or lunch!
This was my first time at Berkeley North, but it definitely won't be my last! The crispy cod sandwich was amazing and the service was excellent. My guests were equally impressed. Such a great spot - not to be missed.
Very disappointed. I don’t mind to spend extra money for their tapas style menu but here it was nothing special. The dumpling was good but I had better for half price in a good dumpling restaurant. The shrimp were ok but definitely not worth the price and the duck salad ... oh well...we decided to stop there. The service was OK, I am not sure the waitress has much experience. Anyway, for this price I was thinking of a very special experience but the overall feeling is they are having a laugh. There is definitely better restaurant, specially in this street or downtown Hamilton. And if you want a true modern take on a tapas/small share meal style, I would recommend « backhouse » in Niagara on the lake, definitely worth the drive.
We were very excited to see all the new places on King William Street, Hamilton. Berkley North was exactly what we like...great food, great service, a relaxed but refined atmosphere. Being vegan is sometimes a challenge when eating out but Berkley had specific dishes and they were amazing.
The Hammer (Hamilton to non-residents) is starting to have a vibrant dining and live music scene. Berkeley North is leading the way on the dining side of the equation, and was within a short walk to a great small concert venue following dinner. Parking was easy and didn't break the bank. Layers of flavors and textures in a perfectly orchestrated tasting menu. The halibut was notable for freshness between the comfort food edemame puree and delicate crunch of the puffed buckwheat and black sesame topping. My mouth is watering again as I write this. We'll be back.
Lunch was great!
Went back 2 days later and it was fantastic!
Will be back. A LOT!!
Fantastic dinner! We have ventured into the Hamilton food scene a lot of the years, and this is up there with one of the best meals my wife and I have had!
The green beans are unbelievable, the avocado salad unique and delicious, the halibut fantastic and the pasta is comparable with some of the best we’ve had in Italy (simple and tasty).
I’d recommend the restaurant to anyone!
We chose Berkley for birthday dinner with friends. The ambiance was true to its name - our friends commented on the "San Fran" vibe. The staff and service was excellent. The menu was tapas style and, although limited, was very creative and prepared beautifully. We'll be back to try the items we didn't get a chance to this visit.
Fantastic!! Everything we had including the cocktails were amazing. I will be back to my new favourite hot spot often!!! Service and food was exceptional.
Overall, not a bad night. We were slow to be seated, and even slower to get our drinks. Our 4 course meal came out plate by plate. Disappointed with the steak and frites, as there was a garlic butter taste to it (which was not like that 2 weeks ago, when I came for dinner). Server was friendly.
Will be back soon!
Delicious, warm and friendly staff and beautiful presentation.
This place is so awesome! So happy to have discovered it a few years ago. I am constantly a repeat customer :)
The Blt is a great idea! The sourdough bread needs to be less toasted and add a thicker slice of tomato. Excellent garlic friEs!
Mother’s Day lunch a day early gave us all what we wanted; decadent fried chicken sandwich and fries or a healthier salad bowl. Fantastic service!
Simply put Berkeley North is on of the best restaurants in southern Ontario. A must try for everyone. The staff is amazing, service is 10/10 and food is absolutely perfect.
Second time there - excellent food & service once again. Very friendly and informative staff.
Berkeley North never ceases to amaze. Our server was friendly and eager to create a great dining experience. The “Taste of Berkeley North” menu for two is an excellent option, and the chef was very accommodating with some dietary considerations. Definitely one of my go-to restaurants!
This was our first time at BN but won’t be our last. Everything was great!
We had the vegan pre fix menu available saturday from 5-6 for 52$ for 2 people. It was so yummy and very good value. Also select bottles of wine are half price. the non vegan option is 75$ also a good option.
Great food! You won't be disappointed. We shared a bunch of dishes so I got to try a lot. Halibut a bit fishy tasting for my liking but everything else was fantastic.
We had an excellent meal and service. The small menu was great. You know that the kitchen can focus on the ingredients and preparation and not on servicing a large menu. Our server, Matg was knowledgeable, friendly and engaging. I look forward to many future visits
Delicious food with such pleasant and lovely service. Love it at Berkeley.
Absolutely excellent! One of our best meals ever! Andrew, our server, had exemplary knowledge of the menu and was delightful. Such unique dishes with a vast array of tastes. We will definitely be back and are telling all our friends.
The team at Berkeley North pay attention, and it shows. Simple details like a purse hook indicate how they think of the whole experience once you enter their space. The service was attentive and personable, and the food was fresh and delicious. Put yourself and your food experience in their hands, and you won't be disappointed.
Went there before a show at Hamilton Place. Excellent deals on half-price bottles of wine on Wednesday. We shared the 2 person platter, and everything we had was awesome. Started with Shrimp toast, followed by mushroom dumplings, then avacado salad...rib eye steak and finished off with blueberry cheesecake. With the half-price bottle of wine, cost $140.00 including tip. Service was excellent as well. Great spot!
Great time with great service. Food was tasty with good variety. Wine complimented meal and it was good environment for talking All servers were friendly and helpful! Great ambiance!!
Cool vibe and laid back dining experience. Really enjoyed the cod fish sandwich and tasty pickles. I shall return for lunch and perhaps an evening cocktail.
Great change from the ordinary
This is my third time to Berkeley North and I must say I will keep coming back. The food is really excellent, the staff are so friendly and helpful and the place has a great vibe (especially when the front window is rolled up).
I think this may be one of my favourite restaurants in Hamilton!
First time here and it was absolutely wonderful! Will definitely be back soon!
