I am going to preface my comments by saying that The North is still the best fine dining restaurant in Barrie. However, what elevates a restaurant from four stars to a perfect five stars? The answer is attention to detail. Staff should notice when a guest had used all their cutlery on previous courses before or at least during serving... More

Four of us went here for dinner the other day. Super friendly serving staff. Great wine list, it was a little pricey but we enjoyed a couple bottles. The food was great. I had the lamb which was done perfectly. Good selection was tried by our table and there were no complaints. We all commented on the flavors of the... More

From the moment we arrived the experience as a valued guest was dismal. No conciege to greet you, twenty minute wait to be seated (with a reservation). Other couples waiting, in a small area overlooking people seated. Wait staff coming and going between waiting patrons. Was about to leave when we were finally seated. No wine list, waiter did not...

First course was a fantastic ham hock, Chorizo and sweet corn Potato soup with smoked paprika cream. A little nip of... More

I have been here quite a few times over this passed year, and as before the food was fantastic. The four of us had 4 different main courses, and each one if us raved at how everything was done to our request. Personally the lamb chops/shank was done perfectly. The waitress advised us of the wait time for some of... More

Enjoy the apps with your favorite wine. Organic food plated beautifully . A great selection of vino to accompany it. Modern urban in upscale decor setting nestled downtown off the main road.

Great food, atmosphere and service...hubby had the lamb and I had the Squash pasta dish...so yummy You can take your own wine as they do offer a corking fee...which is nice...I do fine the dining area a little tight...the tables are somewhat close....but the food makes up for it, We will be back on our next visit to Barrie.

Had a good time the last time we were here with friends. Tonight had to ask for bread three times, people that came in after us were given bread & the chefs sample of smoked salmon, but we didn't receive anything. My husband asked the waitress after what everyone else had??? The Keg is much better that's why you have... More

I was not as thrilled with the North as I had been led to believe. While my dinner was good my hubby did not like and could not eat his dinner. The fish was to far overwhelming in the smell and he was turned off . Being from the east coast and being a fish eater I He had never... More
