    By far best restaurant in Barrie. Attention to detail and taste is out of this world!! Could not choose a favourite dish!

    We have come back to this restaurant many times despite living over an hour away from it. The food is so beautifully balanaced and put together. Every dish more tantalizing than the last. I would highly recommend this restaurant to ones with a refined palate. It is superb.

    I feel that some sort of bread should have come with the meal. Especially to go with the stew. Other than that, we enjoyed the food, the wine, the atmosphere, and the staff were very friendly! Very enjoyable!

    Dinner was wonderful. The atmosphere could have been improved as we were seated beside kitchen but what you have done to mitigate the issue is acceptable. Further, the food was wonderful, with the exception of the dessert which was undercooked (apple crumble). Thank you so much!

    As always food was great however We would not have the 6 course special again. Would rather go to main menu and have a full dinner plate instead of the very small portion special. That said food is always well prepared, presented and tastes great !

    No where on your website did it say it was Barrielicious. The menu was far too limited. Very disappointed. Also incredibly over priced for what you served. $3.50 for tap water? Will just continue to dine at the Painters Hall

    Had a reservation but were seated beside the bar. Waitress didn’t speak English well. One word sentences. Food was ok. The marriage of ingredients in our dishes clashed more than complemented them. Drank Pepsi out of a small glass. Had 2. End of the night was charged $6 for 2 Pepsi’s. No free refills?! After spending $140 here, will definitely not return. Back to the keg or Michael and Marion’s.

    We made reservations for New Years Eve for 7pm. We were served our dinner at 8:15pm. We had already finished our bottle of wine... my husbands steak was so over cooked! Quality of food was not good , we were very disappointed. And we had made reservations weeks in advance and we were seated in the bar area. When people were coming in and waiting for their tables they were put in that area. So as we ate people were standing around. We will never return to the North.

    It was my 30th birthday and our first time at this restaurant. I was disappointed as we ordered our appetizers which we did not receive. 40minutes later when we asked about them, the waitress had explained it was a printer issue. We were understanding and she voided an extra drink, but I feel the service recovery was weak considering it was my birthday and 2 appetizers did not make it to the table, not only a printer issue, but the waitress failed to notice. The recovery didn't go above and beyond. The restaurant was not overly saturated with guests (there was two other tables), she was hardly present and although knowledgeable and friendly I was nonetheless disappointed in the sub-par service especially for a fine dine location. Moreover, clearly she was "cut" or able to go home as we closed with a different server which ultimately explained why we were partially neglected.

    Amazing food - Beef Wellington is to die for!!! Yummy fresh oysters. All 4 of us were totally satisfied with the meal. I’ve been here several times and haven’t always been satisfied but the ambiance and beef wellington keep me coming back... I won’t get into the negatives and only rating the most recent experience.

    Main course was good however nothing outstanding to support the above average prices. We had a different desert each and either of us finished it. However service was good so I give the place a solid 3 stars. Suggest lowering the prices.

    Lamb ribs were placid. I suspect they were braised, which makes sense, but they needed to be put on the flat top or grill before serving; needed to be browned. I also received an inferior cut of ribs. End cut with too much connective tissue and grissle, considering it was a $42 entree. The lamb rack was outstanding, but the sides were forgettable. Service was also outstanding. Great servers.

    We were seated at the high table next to the window. We found the seating a bit uncomfortable and the table wobbly. That's the only suggestion for improvement. The food and service were amazing. Loved it. Would definitely recommend to others!!

    My husband and I have been before and enjoyed. When asked where to go for a nice restaurant and food I thought of The North. Our meal was great however the service was very disappointing. Not sure who was our server was. When we asked for a refill of our cocktails, we were told sure let me get your server. Our server spent more time with the table of 4 beside us. We felt that our server was not engaged with our table at all. When we had finished our appetizers and entree’s we had set aside our dishes until someone would remove. Could of been the restaurant was understaffed that night, which should not of been a concern with your quests. We are in the business to serve our clients and our clients appreciation is our #1 priority.
