Very pleasant server, works hard.. but was so loud inside from a group of about 10 or so that we could not hear ourselves or anyone else. Poor acoustics (like several other places). The tables glass tops were so slippery that plates went flying across the room or on the floor practically, It was like there was teflon coating on... More

Whether for brunch, lunch or diner, the North restaurant has a lot to offer. Service is sometimes a little slow. Staff is friendly. Prices aren't cheap but neither is the food. This is fine dining and you pay for it. Compliments to the Chef!

We wanted a romantic, sophisticated restaurant where we wouldn't have to worry about noise from toddlers or babies interrupting our dinner. This was it. The atmosphere was stunning, the service was perfect, and the food was excellent.

I take my parents out for dinner every time I visit Barrie. Last night was a special occasion, my parents 64th anniversary and my Mom's 85th BD! Over the last several years we have had no luck finding a restaurant we all like until last night! I don't know why I have never seen this restaurant advertised in trip advisor... More

One of the Best restaurants North of Toronto. Chef is creative and daily specials are always inventive and different. Great wine selection and if you can sit in the Bar area do so. Love this place.

Finding an elegant and relaxing place to go out for dinner on a special occasion when you're vegetarians is like climbing Mount Everest. Yes folks, it's a meat-eating world! We found our little "treasure" several years ago called "The North" when they were at their old location on Dunlop St. Our first time there, it was nothing short of unbelievable.... More

My friend and I had the 6 course tasting menu and were very impressed with it. Each and every dish was exciting and creative. The service was perfect even though it was quite busy. Anyone who truly loves great food loves this place. The long islands were perfect ! The best place in Barrie for a very romantic supper.

Dined at The North in January, while in Barrie to attend a funeral. This restaurant lifted our spirits and made a sad time most enjoyable. The waiter was professional, and Marco, the owner most hospitable. We brought our own wine, cost $20 for corkage fee. For appetizer, we shared the tuna tartar, excellent. For main, my husband had the daily... More
