They surprised me with a birthday cheesecake! Service great and attentive. And we got our free covid vaccine drinks! Great lunch!
Food was fantastic! April and her staff did a wonderful job! We will be back soon!
We visited The North House to celebrate Mother's Day for my girlfriend. The restaurant was beautiful and with lots of rustic charm. The menu was well planned and the food was well prepared. I would definitely recommend this restaurant.
This was our first time going to North House and it did not disappoint. We enjoyed the ambience, the food and the service. We will be going back!
It was a Mother’s Day Brunch. We hadn’t been to The Old Avon Farms in years. Given that it was now called The North House and the pandemic was relinquishing its hold, we couldn’t wait to return. “The Stables” still had its rustic charm, the music was low and pleasantly periodic (“Sinatra/Ella/Bennet”). The service was attentive and prompt; the food top notch : everything was at perfection. We couldn’t have had a more relaxing meal with our now-grown children.
Great Service, food and drinks. I'd visit again for sure!
Excellent food, wine and impeccable service.
It was incredibly memorable and we enjoyed the food and ambiance.
We thoroughly enjoyed the following items.
All were prepared with delectable seasoning and were succulent:
Pan-Seared Salmon, Risotto, Arugula Pesto,
Braised Fennel, Apricot, Golden Raisin |
Lemon & Porcini Mushroom Cous Cous, Red Currant Jus
Braised Short Rib of beef
6 Hour Braised Short Rib, Garlic Mashed Potato, Jus
We dined outside , it could have been decorated a little more , but food & service were excellent !
Sat in the far back carriage house area..... great service, great food..... zero complaints!
Overpriced for what it is. The fare was fine. I tried a weird beet ricotta dish simply because I had never seen that before. You should skip it! Not good. French onion soup, wings and steak frites were all good. The fish and chips were adequate too
Beautiful atmosphere and would food
This was our second time dining here and it was as amazing as the first time. Food is outstanding and the staff are extremely friendly and welcoming. We will be back for sure !!!!
Menu is getting old—not much new since we’ve been going.
We really enjoyed our dining experience at The North House! The food was delicious, service was great and we loved the rustic setting.
The duck and salmon were delicious and our server was very personable and professional. We always enjoy the North House and will return.
Excellent food and service, great value for the price.
I celebrated my 75th bday there and was so very pleased with the experience.
The soup, salad, entree and dessert were TOP SHELF
Enjoyable meal. Server was attentive and personable.
Service is always exceptional. Great atmosphere and great food
Great food and service! The short ribs were amazing!
The North House is consistently outstanding - we always have a great meal, there.
Food and service excellent. Drinks were mixed well. Worth the visit.
Delicious food, awesome cocktails, premium staff!
My spouse and I shared a very sizeable portion of the beet whipped ricotta appetizer which came with 5 slices of grilled bread - interesting and tasty. We were surprised that we also were given 4 warm fresh (scrumptious) rolls with honey butter which is served in advance of the entrees. The Chicken and biscuits entree was delicious but the meatloaf was too salty and/or spicy for my husband's taste. Martinis were generous pours and a reasonable price. I bring my own to-go container these days and took home a couple of the rolls and half of the chicken entree which we enjoyed the next day.
Went for Valentine's dinner, and unfortunately was seated in room adjacent to bar area, so got to hear everything going on in the bar which made having any quiet conversation a challenge. Food and service was great after a slow start. Would perhaps go back, but not on a fixed 3 course menu night which seemed like the overall price was high compared to sum of individual items on the normal menu.
Valentine’s dinner was absolutely amazing. The service was outstanding. The food was incredible, and the atmosphere was stunning. We are so excited we found this restaurant and definitely will return again.
Amazing food, great service.
Great as always and our friends are now fans, too!
Disappointed....we went in on Sunday expecting the brunch menu that is currently posted on both open table and their website, but we were told that they were not serving that menu currently. Others who were seated near us were also complaining about the menu. Menu had limited options. My husband ordered a chicken and biscuits dish that was described as similar to a pot pie... for $17. It lacked flavor, lacked chicken and was overloaded with pearl onions... we did not think it was worth the price charged. I had a bowl apple butternut squash soup that was good. Service was extremely slow; it appeared that there was only 1 server working and I counted at least 10 tables current. That did not include people seated at the bar; he was also the bartender. In the past, The North House has been consistently good, however, I’m not sure we will be returning anytime soon after this experience. Other restaurants in their area have returned to business as usual and original robust menus with happy customers and I encourage them to consider getting back into their previous routine and business and out of this “Covid vice” of limited menu choices and cutting back on staff. Just a thought
Perhaps the most uniquely Simsburyian (though it is located in Avon) dining experience you can get. Very classic, vintage, and professional through and through. A worthwhile testament to how traditional restaurants remain firmly superior to their modern counterparts.
The north house is such a fabulous restaurant . It’s warm and cozy . Great atmosphere with wonderful food . I can’t say enough good things about this fantastic spot . Staff are very friendly with outstanding service .
Nice ambiance and great food. The use of local farm ingredients definitely stand out. Try the cheesecake you won’t regret it.
New Year's Eve dinner? Delicious! Unexpected to find such a fine dining venue open under the conditions of COVID yet feel safe enough to enjoy an unhurried, elegant, scrumptious meal. Our server was cordial and paced our meal well. The Brussels sprout appetizer was the best I've ever had, the Ceasar salad was split between my guest and me with ease. I had a salmon entrée with a lightly seasoned cheese risotto and the freshest asparagus spears I’ve ever tasted. Kris, the house Pinot Grigio, was dry and not too sweet. Prosecco had to do for dessert although it would have been nice to have had it with a chocolate dessert but none was to be found on the menu. Only minor disappointment.
