    We arrived to a table on a major slant. After several attempts to fix it, we decided to just suck it up and hope our food didn’t slide off the table. We ordered a charcuterie for two which came perfectly presented. At the time of ordering the charcuterie, we also ordered our main dishes which were pasta. We picked away at the charcuterie for about an hour, and then flagged our server down to ask when our meals would be coming out as we noticed several other tables around us that arrived after us we’re receiving their meals. Our server proceeded to tell us that it was her fault. She should’ve checked on us and asked if we are ready for our main, but that she would put our order in right away. Upon clearing the table to prepare for our main dishes to arrive. My server asked if I wanted new cutlery as she picked up mine. Our meals finally arrived, and I thought our server would return with some fresh cutlery for me. She tended to several other tables and never stopped back at our table. About 20 minutes later she came by to ask if everything was OK. I still had not received cutlery so I didn’t get a chance to even try mine, but at this point it was cold. She asked if I wanted a fresh meal, but when I booked the reservation, I was told we had to leave the table by 8:30 PM as it was reserved to someone else after us. This all happened at about 8:20 PM, after we’ve already been in the restaurant for about an hour and 20 minutes. She proceeded to pick up my plate, told me no one else was booked for our table and “they lied” and and then took my meal back to the kitchen to heat it up, and then returned with no apology. It didn’t appear to be a fresh plate, and merely a reheat of the dinner that was already prepared, still lukewarm and not what I envisioned for a night out with my friend.

    We had to wait a while for someone to come and greet us. She then proceeded to seat the people behind us first. It took at least ten minutes for our server to offer us water but not take our drink order. Our Negronis were watered down. Everyone at our table found the food to be very bland and for the cost of the branzino, it should not have been over cooked.

    Exceptional food and service. Lobster Ravioli was incredible. Only the strange choice of music was odd and did not fit the chill Italian atmosphere ; it was more rap like.

    We had an awesome dinner last evening at 147. Our server, Brody, was prompt, attentive and friendly and recommended an affordable and delicious Pinot noir wine. Every element of the food was fabulous - oysters on the half shell, a treat; my fresh coconut shrimp appetizer was hot and tasty and my lobster ravioli special was the best I’ve ever had, with extra lobster and caviar on top, amazing sauce. My husband requires gluten-free, and enjoyed the lamb skewers and seafood pasta. Portions were generous! We highly recommend 147 - we’ll be back soon.

    I can’t say 147 was bad but there has definitely been a downward change. The restaurant is now too bright. The music is more of a pop music than in the past. Food-wise, my steak was fatty and chewy whilst my scallops were borderline raw. After bringing this up with our waiter, his only response was “I’ll let them know”. For some years, 147 has been our guaranteed go-to restaurant for ambience, top-notch service and high quality of food. It seems that it has lost all of those standards.

    we sat at the table for 2 outside the swinging kitchen door. that would not in itself be a problem but the door needs oiled? WD40? it sqeaks every time people go in and outside the door which is distracting when dining.

    It was a lovely evening. The food was very good. The only thing I might say is we ordered the Arancini (Rice ball and they were lukewarm) would have been better had they been hot. Overall we enjoyed our evening, will definitely go back.

    Appetizer was excellent (lightly-fried seafood medley), though the main (lasagna) was bland enough to be nearly tasteless. Despite including the reservation that it was a special occasion, no mention (or question) was asked during the table service. The service was not at the level that would be expected - while the server was friendly, there was no effort made to refill wine or water glasses, no ask for ordering coffee or after-dinner drinks with dessert. Since 147 charges a price comparable to other higher-end Italian restaurants in town, it seems reasonable to expect a similar experience - I would definitely choose Il Buco over 147.

    Like always they are consistent in every dish. Please never take the coconut shrimp off your appetizer menu they are unreal. Also get larger shrimp even if you need to charge more this would help complete the dish with that wonderful dipping sauce. If you haven’t gone here you don’t know good Italian food. No where else in Barrie will stand up against this place trust me

    Had a great time here eating for the Localicious event. The service was awesome from when we walked through the door to when we left. Food coming out was a bit slow - which was recognized by our waitress and complimentary beverages were offered. A little noisy as we were right next to the kitchen and bar so we got music from both sides of the restaurant and door noise but not a big deal! Food was fantastic. Service was fantastic.

    Food was delicious. We had the chicken parmigiana, Ceasar salad, arancini, creme brule and cannolis. We had a table overlooking the lake. Our server Tony was friendly and did a great job. Only complaint would be that he reached across the table to drop off and refill drinks. The ladies who delivered the meals went around the table as reaching over wasn't necessary.

    Everything was wonderful. Service was great. Our server was attentive but also gave us space and time to enjoy our salad prior to the main meal. Food was delicious and presentation was nice as well. Desserts were scrumptious. We had a terrific evening out and couldn't have been happier with our first time at 147! It was busy which was nice to see for the restaurant and locallicious.
