The food was good, the drinks were great, the service was friendly and prompt. We had the charcuterie board, bread, a flatbread, pasta, chicken, and salad - all delicious. I had a belini and an Italian breeze cocktail. Our server was very knowledgeable and polite. Ambiance was intimate but not stuffy.
The only detraction was that a middle-aged gentleman (I presume the owner?) was at the bar, enjoying a drink with his family (wife and three kids). He was interacting with all the staff, getting up and going to the window where all the food was being prepared, given instructions to wait staff - in his sweatpants. It's a nice place and you own it - why are you there in your gym clothes? It was weird for such a nice place...
Antipasto was great. Chicken Parm was the same as any road house. Slow to clear table. Too much spaghetti not enough sauce. Not quite a medium fine dine with medium fine dine prices.
We love, love, love 147. We've become semi-regulars, dining at 147 once every month or two. Staff remember us and welcome us every time, which makes us feel special. A nice addition to a great meal and friendly service.
We were really happy with our dining experience at 147. From the bread basket, which has the best bread I have ever tasted, to the main course, which was generous in portion and delicious..we were completely happy. Our only suggestion for anyone dining there is to ask to be seated away from the area that looks into the kitchen. It can be awkward with serving staff and managers hanging around waiting for food because it's a tight space. It felt a little like you were in a hallway. There are many other tables with great views though. The only tip I would give to the management is to make sure that the quality of the cocktails fit the price. My guy ordered a peach bellini for $12 and it came in a really tiny champagne glass. We felt a little ripped off there but otherwise...a really nice evening.
Atmosphere is quite nice, decor is welcoming although our table was next to a hutch where supplies are kept so it was a little busy with traffic from servers.
Service is top notch and very friendly, attentive.
Food portions are huge even with my appetite I couldn’t finish anything I ordered.
Food quality is decent it’s just not outstanding, price is very reasonable for portion size.
Excellent meal. Terrific service. Large portions.
Its fabulous loved the atmosphere, the hostess the food literally everything even the price
This was my second time dining at 147 and it was quite disappointing. We were very happy to return, everything was okay until we received our main course. It seemed as though the Lasanga had been reheated in the microwave as it was hot and cold in different parts, my partner and I tried it and both agreed but didn’t want to complain. But then when I was eating the spaghetti I pulled a long hair out of my mouth that was already halfway down my throat. It took a while to get someone to talk to about the hair. When we told the waitress and showed the hair she made it seem like it was my own by saying no one has hair like that in the kitchen. The dish was taken off the bill which we greatly appreciated, but I feel like more should have been done. We were not asked if we wanted a new dish made or another dish or even a dessert. We also didn’t even get the chance to talk to a manager. It felt very uncomfortable.
This is our 10th visit going there since they opened 1 year ago my husband even threw me a birthday party for 30ppl. We just love the Ambience, food, water front view, staff and owners are amazing we always feel welcomed everytime we enter that restaurant.
One of our favourite places to dine .
Menu is creative and dishes are delicious.
Staff is friendly and attentive.
Keep up the good work! We’ll be back😃
Great food, somewhat noisy. Staff very friendly. Will be back.
Really great food and great value for the money. Enjoyed the overall feel of the restaurant. Felt like downtown Toronto restaurant but right at home here in Barrie!
I’ve been to 147 three times now and while the atmosphere is great, the food and service could use some work. By my third time I feel like I’ve tried all the menu items worth trying. The menu is very simple and lacks variety.
My boyfriend and I went for an early Valentines dinner and when we sat down we were and excited for a good meal. Unfortunately, the poor server was the only one on for The entire floor so she was busy and not very attentive. It didn’t seem like anyone was really helping her, including a man who I assume was the manager. Our app took 45 minutes, and while the antipasto platter was good the calamari lacked flavour. We sent it back and she graciously offered to take care of it. Our meals arrived shortly after and again nothing special. We ordered wine which we never got, but we didn’t mind because we just felt so bad for the poor server running around. On the night before Valentine’s Day, you would think they would have scheduled more staff.
It took our server a while to clear our plates and by then we just wanted To leave.
Love this place. I have been twice now and will be back! On both occasions the server has been amazing and attentive. The food is simply delicious! Great menu and they don't rush you out!
One of my favourite places to dine now!
Excellent - we recommend 147 100%. We have never been disappointed!
Everything was great except a mix up with one of the dishes but was corrected immediately and graciously
I booked our reservation and on the day it was very cold. The restaurant had some issues with the heating near the back of the dining area and we were getting cold. Without our asking the owner and a couple of the staff brought portable heaters next to our table to keep us warm. They also offered us coffee and drinks on the house because of the disruption. The server was very informative, humorous and efficient. But the best part was the food. Delicious, home cooked and worth the price. Thank you for the lovely experience. Oh and the heating issue was fixed so it won’t be an issue for anyone wishing to try 147. I highly recommend this restaurant.
Will definitely be back! The food quality was terrific. We had the clam chowder to start - excellent. Then for a main, we had the gnocchi with the meatballs and one of the pizzas. Both very good. Service was timely - attentive but not bothersome. Enjoyed our food and there are a few things we'd go back to try. I recommend the food and service. Great night out and good value for quality food.
Excellent food and staff. Give it a try you will not be disappointed. Wine selection was good. Bread was to die for
We were disappointed with the food. We had tasted their food at the Top Chef competition and were so impressed that we booked a dinner with friends but the meals really weren't flavourful, I could only eat a couple bites of my meal, it just wasn't good. The bread and apps were great but for the price of an entree it was very disappointing.
The evening I spent with the special person in my life at 147 had a WOW factor! The staff was super and the food superb!
Had a wonderful time! Great food great and friendly service!
I was in town visiting my mom & we had reservations at 147. This was my first time so I was very excited to try it out. They seated right beside the kitchen. We asked if there was any other option & that we would wait need be & they said no. Our dinner consisted of watching the kitchen door open & close & watching staff scrape plates into the garbage and talk. We were also near the bathroom & from our angle got to see men using the washroom. At the end of the meal after we had paid we spoke to one of the owners & she did apologize, but said that table is usually given to walk ins & next time we should specifically state that we don’t want to sit there. She didn’t seem to understand our concern that they shouldn’t even have a table there because it completely ruins the experience! Overall the food was delicious. Our waiter was a bit distracted & seemed more interested in talking to the bartenders. But the experience was completely ruined by our seating & the staffs refusal to move us.
Enjoyed a Fri.evening with friends during Barrielicious, could not believe the portions, and the pasta dishes were delicious and cooked perfectly. Our waitress was attentive, even though the place was packed. look forward to going again. everyone at our table was very pleased.
Fantastic, as usual. Great service, great environment, fabulous food. My favourite restaurant in Barrie.
Went for Barrielicious! Food was great! Will go again!
My husband and I just fell in love with 147. Being new to the city of Barrie and first timers to this beautiful establishment, the staff made us feel like we were regulars and felt right at home. Service, food and atmosphere was first class. We will definitely be back again!
Crowded due to Barrielicious, sat at a table under the fireplace which seemed to be in everyone's way, but otherwise great food and service as always
Food and service was excellent couldn't ask for a better meal
The food was great unfortunately we were seated at a high table right near the entrance / bar area where everyone waited for a table. The crown was standing right on top of us and even bumping into us as we tried to enjoy the excellent food. Noise level due to the table location was also not conducive to meal conversation.
Limited space is an issue so ensure you reserve or wait for a table either right at the front windows or in the rear section.
We had the WORST table in the place!!!!
We were there during Barrielicious so the restaurant was quite busy. It looked like they were overbooked and there were a lot of people waiting for tables. We seemed to be rushed to order while we were trying to enjoy a pre-dinner cocktail.
We had a great table at the front window, the food was delicious and was served in a reasonable amount of time. I just think that they underestimated how long people would take to eat and did not allow enough buffer.
Best dinner and service in a long time. I cannot say enough about the meal. It’s was fantastic
Food was great. Hopefully the fish plate on barrielicious menu is added as a regualar. It was outstanding. Service was horrible because we were being served by female bartender. Amazing food
My husband and I had a planned date night. We decided to take advantage of Barrielicious and try 147 as many of our friends and family said they really enjoyed it. We were very happy with the meal, wine and atmosphere. I would highly recommend this restaurant to anyone. We will definitely be back. Our server was excellent and very tentative I am sorry I did not get his name.
Compliments to the Chef the flavours were fabulous. Service was perfect, we never felt we were being rushed. Solid Ground Red Wine - exclusive to 147 is defiantly the one to have.
The highest compliments to all the staff, they were very friendly and engaging. They make you feel welcomed, like you are being invited into their home.
Only criticism was the noise,difficult to chat with dinner mates..very generous portions,good quality...great waitress. Will return.
Went for dinner before Colts game. Barrielicious menu was fantastic. Great service, food arrived hot and in a timely manner. Highly recommend
Amazing night out. Service was superb and food was fresh and delicious.
