We were sat and no one came over for 15 minutes. 2 tables were sat after us and ordered before us. Then when we ordered, we repeated our meal three time yet it still came out wrong. ( both meals) never got our drinks. Then finally got the bill and gave my card and when got it back, the amount was different. I’ve never had so many things go wrong during an entire sitting.

A fabulous place on the waterfront. The food is excellent and service outstanding.
It started to rain and we were at an outdoor table. They had already opened the awnings when it started to sprinkle and then were very concerned that we were ok and not getting wet. We plan to return often.

We had scallops for an appetizer, which were delicious but there was only 2 scallops. Dinner was good. My husband had the halibut which was a bit dry but the eggplant with capers saved the meal. I had the filet mignon, it was a little tough and not well seasoned. The side of asparagus was very good. The bread was ok. My husband really enjoyed the drinks he had. Made very well. The seating outside was very nice and the waitress was sweet. Not worth the money.

We made reservations for lunch on a Saturday. We arrived and there was no hostess to see or seat us. After trying to find someone, a guy told us to go downstairs. Still no one to seat us. We eventually sat ourselves. Staff did not come to serve us. The staff were hanging out at the bar chit chatting to each other - bunch of teenagers who were working there and using it as their hangout not as a workplace. Place was deserted with no other customers and there was zero service. We got up and left without eating since we waited 20 min and instead and went elsewhere. Do not recommend. The location was nice however.

Server wasn’t very friendly or attentive. Served red wine chilled and didn’t have any at room temperature. Had to wave down another server to get more drinks. Gave us the wrong check and ran the card and then had to void it and run the card again and now the charge is still there pending and held. We are on vacation so this isn’t ideal. I work in the service industry and I understand these things happen but she really didn’t seem to care or apologize.

The view is great, the food was acceptable if expensive, the service was not good at all and they charge you $20.00 to park when you are spending over $100 on lunch.

The menu was very limited and expensive. The food was extremely disappointing. From the overly salted calamari to the bitter inedible smoked eggplant and even a bland $52 beef ribeye, nothing was worth going back for.

Beautiful restaurant with amazing views; however, food is sub par and service was not the best for the cost of the meal. Our table has missing drinks, and our outside reservation was not originally honored.

We had a lovely time at 41 North. The view from the balcony was gorgeous and the service was outstanding. The food was delicious, the only reason I gave it 4 stars was that it seemed slightly overpriced.

Our first 20 minutes didn't turn out so well as they were transitioning people to a different dining area due to an upcoming event but once I notified the manager that we were being somewhat neglected he quickly remediated the situation and everyone was very attentive. The food was delicious and I appreciate that restaurants can have odd moments. It's how they react to them that really shines throw and this place definitely did all they could to make us feel welcome. We will definitely come back again in the future.

THis is my second time at the restaurant. The first time the food was undercooked so this time I specifically asked for the cooking instructions.

Same thing happened, undercooked.

We thought the portions of the meal were small and just ok. For the money we were disappointed and wont return

OUTDOOR SEATING FOR LUNCH WAS IMPORTANT FOR MY 2 GUESTS.

EVEN THOUGH THERE WERE ONLY A FEW DINERS THERE AT THE SAME TIME, SERVICE WAS RATHER SLOW.

FORTUNATELY THE FOOD WAS VERY GOOD AND EVERYONE WAS SATISFIED.

Outstanding service. Beautiful location. Food was delicious but prices are very high. Quality of bar drinks were poor. Special martini glass came 3/4 full and not well chilled. No side car. Short pour on the wine too. Had a nice lunch but left wanting for better considering the cost.
