Berkeley North Ratings and Reviews
Great food and exceptional service! While we had our main girl, all the other staff members were also fabulous.
Wasn't expecting portion size to be small but our server let us know early on and we ordered almost everything on the menu to make up for it. Think TAPAS!
For anyone hungry going, expect to spend at least $35 (plus cost of drinks). Amazing chocolate cake (made with almond flour), short ribs (beef) and mushroom dumplings (for vegans)!
My husband and I are foodies. I booked this place by mistake and boy am I happy I did. Matt was such a delight and the rest of the staff were wonderful. Will definitely spread the word to go to Berkeley North. Can’t wait to go again.

First timers on Saturday night
Our server was awesome! She thoroughly explained how the menu worked, made note of our dietary concerns! Based on our concerns and restrictions, she suggested what would work best! Loved the app sizes and sharing idea for the dishes! Food was fresh and favourable! Presentation of food was impressive as well.
All of us in our group had been to Berkeley North previously and the restaurant lived up to expectations. Of particular note as always, is the bread and cheese which is simply amazing, the shrimp carpaccio was truly outstanding. Arctic char is a staple and always delicious. The only dish this time that was only "okay" was the braised beef ribs-- Not as good as the steak that was previously on the menu. The terrine was good but not great.We shared all of the meals and thus were able to have a broad tasting evening which is the way to do it at Berkeley North. We will be back of course.
We went for a birthday celebration with family and friends. Not only was the staff friendly, they knew so much about the menu options. The food was fantastic! Each dish had its own unique flavour and were presented beautifully. We had the sharing plates for two (which gave us five courses of tasting plates) and it was a wonderful deal! I already recommended this restaurant to friends and co-workers!
We tried the Tuesday "fixe prix" style sharing menu recently. Each of the four primary dishes we selected were outstanding! We veer toward seafood when dining out, so three of our four choices were seafood. The standout course was the tuna crudo. Best we've ever eaten! You also get dessert as part of the Tuesday deal and these are always tasty and inventive. Total cost is $65 for two for all five courses, which is such a great deal on some of Hamilton's best food. Service is extremely friendly and the ambience is wonderful. Overall, BN offers the best overall dining experience we've had in the area in over three years as Hamiltonians. We recommend it highly!
This was my first time at the venue. It is very nicely decorated and the servers were very good and polite. The west coast salad with salmon was one of the best salads ive ever had. I definitely recommend the place for healthy and high quality foods. Worth the expense.
I chose Berkeley North to celebrate a good friends birthday . Chef Jonathan lived up to his reputation by preparing the " perfect " meal . The food was fresh and the sauces amazing . The tapas style suited the occasion perfectly .The wine list complimented our food choices . This was our first time here but not our last - Thanks for making our night even better .
We had a wonderful experience at Berkeley North. The cheese and sourdough is absolutely delicious. The west coast halibut never disappoints and the new addition to the menu - steak and crispy potatoes was incredible. Perfect for dinner with friends and family. Tip: the dishes come out one after another, so make sure you are ok with sharing plates.
The food was fantastic. Took my daughter and her boyfriend out for dinner and wanted to try someplace new for a change. The steak ....salted potatoes.....green beans...mushroom duplings ...and cheese cake all cooked to perfection and absolutely delicious.
Our service was pleasant, not a thing to compain about ....just not exceptional. She did not seem very sure of herself ...maybe she was new.
I will definately go back again ...the food and atmospere are worth it!!!
