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

    I wanted to take my wife out for a nice dinner for our 17th wedding anniversary. We've only lived in Barrie a few years and are still learning where all the good restaurants are. I googled "best oysters in Barrie" and The North Restaurant came up. I checked out their online menu and I was really impressed. I was especially looking forward to the Orange Maple Duck Breast they have posted on their web site's menu. When we got there, we noticed the location left a lot to be desired. There were a bunch of raucous kids in the laneway accross the street, drinking, fighting, yelling at each other... not a great first impression. Then, the menu they presented us didn't have the dish I wanted... in fact there are quite a few dishes missing that are still on their online menu. Strike 2. The waitress explained that the chefs changed the menu for Barrielicious and they removed those dishes from their menu when it was over. I was extremely disappointed in this as the duck dish was the reason I'd picked this restaurant over the other options we were considering. BUT, we were there and we wanted to give this restaurant a fair shake so we ordered our oysters, drank some wine and had a wonderful anniversary dinner. I ended up ordering the Braised Curry Lamb, which was absolutely fantastic, and even though it wasn't the dish I was looking forward to, I would definitely recommend it. The lamb was fall off the bone tender, the butternut squash puree was excellent and the Asian slaw was a nice complement to the dish. My wife ordered the Basa and couscous special which she enjoyed very much. I wasn't a huge fan of the crust on the fish, but it was cooked perfectly and I especially liked the couscous. I would definitely recommend this restaurant to anyone who is considering going here for the food and service alone. This restaurant is something of a diamond in the rough. It's really out of place and I'd like to see them located on the downtown strip. The dinner wasn't cheap, (including tip we spent $162,) but the quality of the food, and the excellent service made it more than worth it. We really enjoyed ourselves and would definitely go here again. I would only like to see their online menu updated to be a true representation of what they're actually serving in house. I was falsely drawn to this place by a menu that didn't exist anymore and I felt a little cheated by it. However the menu they do have looks great and the food we ordered were excellent.

    I have eaten here in the past and found it quite good. Not sure if it was bad this time because it was Barrelicious? ....but the food was not good.

    Waitress was great, but took a while for the food to start to arrive ( almost 30minutes for the appetizer) but smooth after that. Some of the food was amazing, but some of it was quite unappetizing, like they were trying too hard to do something different and failed miserably at it. Beef Brisquit was mouthwatering as well as the chocolate torte. But overall....for the price, I don't think I'll go back.

    Excellent service. Food was excellent. This was about the fourth time we've been. Would highly recommend and if you've never been there before try it during Barrilicious. It is excellent value for the wonderful meal.

    Arrived late but they where nice enough to take us. Did Barrielious six course. Portion where bigger than norm for the six course, with the exception of the chicken was excellent. We find the chicken legs dish on the salty side.

    Make sure to call for reservations. Open table etc in comments they don’t read the items. In other words, if you want to reserve a table or dietary preferences it’s a problem.

    Had reservation for snniversary dinner. Never got asked who we were. Good service good food Near end of our dinner a loud boisterous group came in .... so loud we couldnt converse. Thank goodness they were not there throughout our dinner. They spoiled an otherwise great night. Too bad someone from the restaurant didnt suggest they tone it down. Or seated them upstairs

    Lovely staff. Food was amazing. We sat outside and I felt a bit awkward eating in this beautiful restaurant while about 10 people were sitting across the street half dressed, sitting on the lawn and eating out of bags and cartons.
