Our server was excellent... bar staff and hostess were great as well. The food and wine were fabulous! Restaurant was busy however we did not find it overly noisy and we were not rushed. Chefs are obviously creative and passionate about the food they prepare. Great experience!

Not my first time at 147, nor will it be my last.
The food is always great, I never wait long for it and the staff are friendly and attentive.
This place is always busy so booking in advance is a must. Love the veal, it was absolutely perfect and they did not hesitate to accept my dietary substitutions.
Be back soon.

This was our second visit to this restaurant. I remembered the fabulous garlic sticks then and was so disappointed this time when there was very little garlic flavour. We had a Caesar salad as well, which was quite good on the whole, but also could have used a tad more garlic. I just remembered the garlic sticks were so decadent the first time. We all thought our meals were good, but not exceptional. My husband had the ragu pasta, my daughter the penne vodka, and I had the stuffed eggplant. I felt the eggplant was fairly average. My husband is celiac and was hoping for more options, as it was quite limited. There is a nice ambience to this restaurant and certainly we would return; however, we would not make a point of coming here for a special occasion. Portions are ginormous which appeals to many people so they can take some home and feel they got their moneys worth. I always prefer less quantity and more quality. Desserts ran out early apparently, so that our choices were limited.

awesome food ... every course was delicious good value for our money ... only disappointment was there was a large group of diners behind us that were VERY LOUD ... not the restaurant’s fault . once they finished their meal and exited the restaurant, noise level was much better .
Will definitely be back another time. 😀

Overall it was a very good evening. Food was good but could have been better coordinated.
The waiter offer to debone the first however he was clumsy and I was picking out bones everywhere on the fish. They also didn’t bring the mashed potatoes & othe accompaning vegetables for about 5 minutes so of course the fish was now almost cold.
A little disappointing in an otherwise nice evening.

This is just what Barrie needed! We sat at the high-tops in the bar area and our bartender, Foti, was great - he was attentive and engaging, despite a busy bar scene. There's a great vibe to the restaurant and the decor is amazing. But most importantly, the food was phenomenal. I can't wait to go back and try out more on the menu!

We have eaten at 147 about 4 or 5 times! At first it was great! the food was very good and the place was very busy! The second last time we ate there the food was just OK! We though maybe it was just a off night so went back it was a Friday night had no trouble getting a reservation for a Friday night the place was almost empty and the food was not good but service was!! I think they need a change of chefs!!

We thoroughly enjoy the total dining experience at 147. Our waiter was extremely efficient, friendly, and obviously experienced in the business. There were plenty of healthy food options, and the garlic, parmesan bread was better than dessert!

Our 4th visit and least favourite. First three times things were good. This time my wife's lasagna was lukewarm and had to be sent back and reheated. I was offered a dish I did not order and my simple spaghetti and meatballs was overloaded with a thick mundane tomato sauce.
The couple with us enjoyed their meals.
Our desserts were delicious, perhaps not surprising as the restaurant owners also own an Italian bakery in Barrie.
We will give it another try, but not for a few months.

This new Italian restaurant is located in one of Barrie's renovated older buildings downtown. As soon as you enter the front entrance, you feel so at home. The atmosphere is comfortably bustling; upscale yet relaxing; very tastefully decorated with leather chairs and crisp black tablecloths. Since this relatively narrow building is on a corner, the older sizeable windows allow everyone to view part of either the lights of the city and/or the view of the waterfront. We found the staff (dressed in black) to be professional, friendly and helpful. It seemed each one who engaged with us were eager to see us really enjoy our time there with them. The restaurant was 75 to 80 percent filled because of it's popularity yet everything and everybody we could observe were being well served and seemed to be appreciating their evening out. Soon after getting seated and having a short time to acquaint ourselves with the surroundings and observing the people, a server brought us a large white rectangular plate of toasted Italian bread and these most amazing flavourful parmesan cheese dusted long baked bread sticks. It is worth coming back for those alone. We were 2 mid aged couples and 3 of the 4 of us simply loved our meal choices. The 4th one loved the restaurant and would come back for the food, however was NOT happy with his Sea Bass fish dinner. The waiter brought the whole fish body to him and, as is the custom in some places, removed the skin and bones at our table, preparing it for eating. The fish alone was on one place - the accompanied vegetables were on another plate. Different but OK. The Sea Bass dinner did not yield much flavour. We believe garlic, lemon and something else was used in cooking the fish but it wasn't salty enough and needed more flavour. Everything else we ate was delicious. Thanks. We wish you growth and success.

It's has some very good food, but it is inconsistent. I was surprised that they used the same tomato sauce for the boar ragu as used for the meatball appetizer, and the boar component seemed no different than hamburger.

Went on a Friday night and service was very slow.

The antipasto plate is wonderful, great cheese and charcuterie. They need a more varied menu.
