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!
Food was ok, portions decent, prices decent.
Service friendly and efficient.
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!
We had a great experience and will return . Service was great and food was delicious.
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.
We attended 147 for our 20 anniversary. When we requested a special seat by the water it was accommodated. It meant a lot to both of us as we booked our seat online and it was arranged.
Outstanding in every way. Our waiter John was fabulous.
Great food, excellent service , reasonable prices , close seating , will definitely return .
Fantastic food and amazing service. Can't wait to go back there, would definitely recommend 147 to a friend.
This is the best restaurant in Barrie! Food was amazing! Desserts were fantastic! The staff was very helpful and friendly! We will definitely be dining at 147 soon!
Great food, awesome spot. I would recommend this place to anyone looking to mix it up on tinder.
Found this restaurant through open table and was pleasantly surprised! Will definitely be returning. (Great wine list)
Amazing food, service and ambience. My favorite place in Barrie.
Wonderful experience!! Terrific food, attentive, friendly service and beautiful, warm environment!! We will definitely be back!!
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.
This was our 2nd visit to 147. My husband and i really enjoy the food, the price is good and the service is great! Our server was fun.
Great experience. 8 of us for a girlfriends birthday. My only complaint would be that we were seated at the back near a window but it didn't open and we were all very hot
Nice view and location. Can see the lake and the sailboats while eating! Great service and food.
Must try ! Highly recommend!! Awesome tasty food - outstanding friendly service ! Price point perfect ! Temperature of the food always super hot and super tasty! Go go go ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Our first visit and it was a wonderful experience. The food was delicious, wine and beer selection very acceptable and the breads to die for. We will be returning Jim Bates
The food is excellent, and service is outstanding!
First time at the restaurant. Food was excellent with something for everyone.
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.
typically, the service at 147 is great. This one time our server seemed to be focused on one table in particular which left us waiting and waiting for our plates to be removed and for our bill to come.
Food was great, Wait staff freindly, but forgot to bring bread and when reminded they forgot again. I requested a window seat well in advance, but did not get one. Staff did not even address the reason for not getting a window seat. minor issues but note worthy
3rd time dinning here and it definitely won't be the last.
Service was excellent, very friendly
Never had a bad meal
Service amazing....staff friendly & personable. ...Italian food the best around...will & have recommended your location to friends...small deep fried rolls were out of this world....chocolate cake dessert was enjoyed & shared by all !!
Great restaurant. They really take care of you in authentic Italian style.
Best please for any reason any time. The staff are friendly and fun. The service is amazing. The food is spectacular. There is no reason not to go to this place. It's the best place in Barrie by far.
Very nice. Really good food. Busy. Lots of ambience. Good crowd. Fun.
Great menu - service was awesome attentive but not over done - atmosphere is perfect - privacy is there but a nice hum in the background as it populates
Will be back for sure !
The bread basket is the best. I always order an extra one! I've been there a few times and the food has always been good.
We booked a reservation for our wedding anniversary. The food and service was absolutely amazing. The food was very fresh and cooked to perfection. Also the staff are very knowledgable about the menu and offered suggestions on favourites of theirs. I have eaten at many fine dining restaurants and have to say this was definitely a favourite. You pay for what you get and every dollar spent was worth it!
