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

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.

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.

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.

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.

As a business leader I took my out of town crew from the West Coast here. The Chef changed a few months ago as I had dinner here before and it was great. Service was attentive and friendly, menu is small, something I generally like. The problem was that we a) waited almost an hour for our entrees after the starters were long consumed and then the food was served basically cold. We returned it and even the second try was at best lukewarm. The service team tried to please us which wasn't easy by that time. The plates were chilled, very odd and with that performance that night, I can't recommend the place. Nonetheless the food itself wasn't bad, but I can't eat cold fish or cold steak.

I'd always thought of North as a bit pricey, but ultimately worth it for its local ingredients and clever chef's creations. Also worth abiding the (very) high noise level - a step or two beyond "casual." My dinner this time had good flavors and good local ingredients, but the list of choices did a bit less for me than in the past. Beef was ordered medium-rare but came out medium well (and kind of gummy). That dish overall was at best ordinary. Cauliflower soup was very nice - lots going on, creamy and very flavorful. Scallops were tasty and prepared well, but cubed root vegetable underneath them was unremarkable.

I'll eventually be back and give the place another chance since several prior meals were strong, but at this price point ($110 for two incl. tax and tip, with no alcoholic drinks) there is a lot of competition in the area.

North has become our favorite local spot. We've loved going to North in the past but thought since they reopened and brought on a new chef, there is just something different about North that we love, it has upcoming back during the week often. Kudos North Team, keep up the great work, you will see us again.

We had an early dinner at Restaurant North after having eaten and enjoyed a meal there the night before. The wait staff are truly excellent and the food is delicious. In the past we have always ordered meat and fish entrees but tonight we went with burgers and pasta, and it was just as much of a treat. In fact, my husband said the pasta he ordered was the best he’s ever had. I mentioned above that the waitstaff are great but I want to say it again because they are another key to the dining experience.

I keep hoping that they will get their act together. It takes forever to get drinks, food, or any type of service. Obviously the staff is not well trained or disciplined as a restaurant that charges these prices should be. The food was fine.....but nothing that you would recommend.
This is my last trip there. Too many better choices that are run like a restaurant should be.

We dined at north the other evening with another couple and had a great meal, food was great and service very friendly. We ordered the Ribeye special, it was really creative that the steak sizes were different so we could choose one that was big enough to share. The steak was cooked perfectly and it came with a bunch of sides so although it was a little pricey, it was so worth it! The sundae for sundae for dessert was just awesome! We are going back next week!

We went to north recently not having been there since the new chef took over and we were blown away. The restaurant looks even better then it had in the past and the vibe was great. The service was top notch as always, our server was unpretentious even when we told her of our dietary restrictions, my wife tries to eat super healthy. The chef John was very accommodating to our request and even stopped by the table to make sure that my wife was we feeling great about her meal, it was a very nice touch. I loved the crude and the steak and had a great glass of wine to pair with both. We can't wait to run back, it was just a really great experience from the service to the food. Oh yea, the sundae for dessert was a show stopper, so good.

WENT TO NORTH WITH MY WIFE FOR A NIGHT OUT AND CAN'T STOP TALKING ABOUT THE MEAL WE HAD TO OUR FRIENDS. WE STARTED WITH THE FRIED HEN OF THE WOOD MUSHROOM AND THE SWEET POTATO AGNOLOTTI AND BOTH WERE AMAZING. OUR SERVER, JOHN, MADE GREAT SUGGESTIONS THROUGHOUT THE MEAL AND DANNY, THE BEVERAGE MANAGER, PICKED OUT GREAT WINES TO PAIR WITH OUR DISHES. FOR ENTREES MY WIFE AND I HAD THE SCALLOPS AND THE HAPPY VALLEY BEEF, ONE BETTER THEN THE OTHER. THE NEW CHEF SEEMS TO HAVE REALLY SETTLED IN BECAUSE OUR MEAL WAS OUTSTANDING. WE ENDED WITH THE PUMPKIN CHURROS AND THE SUNDAE, PROBABLY THE TWO BEST DESSERTS WE EVER HAD. WE ARE REALLY EXCITED TO SEE THAT NORTH IS BACK...

We used to love North. They always had great homemade gluten free bread, an awesome gluten free pasta and the best homemade french fries. I don't always eat gluten free, but it was nice to have the option. With the new chef, the menu was very very limited. I wouldn't have even gone, but they don't post their menu on their website, which i also find annoying. While I loved the fun music they were playing, it was really loud. Couldn't really talk to our friends without yelling. Still love the atmosphere despite that. Just wish they could get the menu right. Didn't like our apps at all. Lastly, it took them really long to take our order. We sat at 7:30 and didn't get our food until 9:30.

Excellent atmosphere. Great for special occasion or intimate dinner. The only caveat is that the portions are small but the prices are large. If the portions were a bit larger, it would coincide with the prices and the ratio would be equal. I had the Shook Farm Pork . The highlight of the evening was the sundae on their menu; EXCELLENT ALMOND JOY ICE CREAM WITH MOIST CHOCOLATE CAKE intertwined in a glass.
