Slow service which was actually fine because wanted leisurely dinner. Appetizers and entrees very good although entree portions were small. Dessert underwhelming. Overall expected better while actual experience was meh
We were disappointed. It was a very limited menu. The last time we were here it was very good lots to choose from. I don’t think we’ll be back, not when there are so many choices.
Overall I believe it was a fair experience, though not compelling enough for a return.
Yet another good food experience at North. We always do upstairs as it is much quieter than the zaniness downstairs. Service was fair and bill came with 3 bottles on invoice when we only had two, but they promptly fixed it. Menus of both food and wine have been scaled back but like eclectic wine options though prices are on the high side at 3x. We are likely to keep coming back as the food is awesome....
This is a farm to table that we have been to three times, and all three times have left something to be desired. The pork belly was inedible, the steak was average, and when they put you upstairs for an early dinner, it lacks the character to make it something memorable. We have, in season, had good veggies, which I would rate as an 8 out of 10. Service was okay, but the restaurant fails to hit the mark.
Excellent, creatively prepared food. Service was attentive but not obtrusive. Would definitely go back again.
Been coming to North on and off for many years. I need to travel about 25 minutes to get there.
Reason being that I have always held it in high regard. In the past I have dined on the ground floor...very lively and good atmosphere.
This time was very different...dined on the top floor..quieter (as a result..an older clientele..OK) but not well lit..
Food, which is usually very good, was inconsistent...the kale raw veggie salad was very good...the soup was just tepid when it should have been warm. I'm a sophisticated diner but there is no reason to serve monkfish rare..and if the chef insists, at least have the wait staff warn when you order. They took it back but then brought it took 15 minutes to get it back (my guests had finished their main course) No one said a thing to me in way of explanation. As it was I didn't finish it..was most unimpressive ..fairly tasteless.
We ordered two bottles of wine (one red.one white)...both OK but over-priced by 20%. They have an annoying habit of taking away the white to the other side of the floor... and then forgetting about you..so each time you want a fill-up you have to find someone and request that someone bring it back. Not only is this annoying but it's really counter to their best interests...after all, if you leave the bottle in an ice bucket next to the table, the clients will consume it faster!.. and you will increase sales.
All the staff was very nice but clearly stretched beyond capacity.
Think if I come back, I will avoid weekends...clearly a better experience during the week.
We've just returned to this restaurant and the new menu is great--fewer choices make it easier. For entrees on two recent visits we had the fresh fish, fried chicken, the kielbasa sausage entree, and my husband had a pasta entree. Advice would be that the pastas are not their strong suit. We went with friends on one of the two visits and two of our party ordered pasta and didn't care for their meal. But, the chicken is outstanding, and the sausage entree was outstanding. So, I'd say the meats, poultry and fish entrees are best. The fried chicken is a "must try".
Restaurant North was by far one of my favorite places to dine when in town. I work at IBM walking distance to the restaurant. It WAS the place have a celebratory meal. I’m not sure what happed but everything, is different... menu, food, people and vibe.
It’s was horrible... the meal, service was horrendous and extremely expensive for low quality food.
Amazing as usual. We are almost regulars at North and are always amazed by how their chef experiments with food and flavors. Great service comes without saying.
Probably the best meal that I have had in this area in a while. The menu was interesting and very seasonal, the food was delicious, and the service was very good. I will definitively be returning.
Don’t care for upstairs seating. Food was warm not hot. Duck was mushy not crispy
We had a great time, our server was knowledgable and fun, the food was over the top good. We loved our pasta as well as the prime rib special. Going back soon.
Pork belly app was tough, my tagliatelle with truffles was horrible; bland, zero flavor, no taste of truffles whatsoever. Drinks were good, service was good.
North continues to be one of the best restaurants in New York. The staff is accommodating and the food is beyond delicious. We cant wait to return! It was THAT good!
Fun place to go. We got a little stir crazy in this cold weather, and we tried this out. We ordered a lot of things to share, and it was a real hit with us, everything was fresh and flavorful. Would be fun to go with more than the two of us. Waiters were exceptionally nice and the place is pretty... it wasn't crowded so we sat on main floor. Definitely worth the experience.
Enjoyed a lovely Sunday brunch for my birthday. Attentive staff nice atmosphere
definitely our favorite local place - staff is very friendly and attentive
Great food and service staff were nice, fun, attentive and well informed.
Limited menu of pretentious unappealing items. Servers had no idea how to describe the preparation of any of the menu items. We had to ask if there were specials and our server said “I think there might be a dish special tonight”. Upstairs dining room is devoid of charm, like being in a Marriott Conference room. Very expensive for completely mediocre food and comically poor service.
