    The ambiance was quiet, but with a cool vibe. The server was stellar as a host, and provides Berkley clients with a top notch customer experience. Cannot say enough of the knowledge she exhibited which represents 90% of this review.

    We absolutely love Berkeley North! They have extensive vegan accomodations so there is something on the menu for everyone. The efforts put into each dish is obvious with quality ingredients. Avocado Salad is to die for!! Can't wait to go back.

    We went for brunch and it was great. We had to have substitutions for one meal and Kayla, our server was absolutely amazing. We had a baby stroller with us as well, which is why we went early so it wasn't a big hassle getting in and out. Will definitely come back again!

    First time going. We were a few minutes late and they closed at 2pm and was still very nice about it and not mad or anything. Very welcoming. Our server was such a nice guy and asked everything he needed to. If anything we were probably the pain in the butts because we have a fish allergy but it all worked out in the end. Food was great, the sourdough bread with the cheese ( OG ) was UNREAL. The little outdoor patio was a cute little vibe!! Would recommend to a friend.

    We enjoyed a marvellous brunch with Kayla as our server - she made us feel right at home. The cherry kombucha was a tasty start, with avo toast topped with pickled onions and chopped peppers. We followed up with the eggs Benny and shrimp salad (perfect with the rose). Highly recommend.

    Honestly, it was absolutely fantastic. As a foodie I was not left disappointed at any point. The service was great, the tasting menu was great, with each and every item surpassing the expectations and assumptions that I had prior to tasting! Such a vast selection of textures, flavours and overall deliciousness. I'll be back

    Fantastic food, staff and ambience! We did the set menu which was most ample for 2 people starting with light fare and ending on a delicious robust note (duck). All foods were tasty and simply divine! Perfect spot if you happen to be attending concert hall nearby. We will be returning and selecting other delectables!

    we were met at service desk promptly and the girls were very friendly. Asked if we liked the table selection as we were seated and we were. Loved that we got water immediately and walked through the menu with our server. Explained special’s and as we were first timers expanded on options. We parked across the street and had an easy walk to our next destination of Jan Arden. Tapas came out from the kitchen perfectly. Timing , temperature and service was great!!

    We have been checking out the Hamilton food scene this year and Berkeley North has been our favourite so far. Everything about it was excellent including our awesome table for two just inside the open patio door. We were too stuffed to try the gnocchi as planned so will have to go back.
