Berkeley North Ratings and Reviews
We tried the Tuesday "fixe prix" style sharing menu recently. Each of the four primary dishes we selected were outstanding! We veer toward seafood when dining out, so three of our four choices were seafood. The standout course was the tuna crudo. Best we've ever eaten! You also get dessert as part of the Tuesday deal and these are always tasty and inventive. Total cost is $65 for two for all five courses, which is such a great deal on some of Hamilton's best food. Service is extremely friendly and the ambience is wonderful. Overall, BN offers the best overall dining experience we've had in the area in over three years as Hamiltonians. We recommend it highly!
initiated a meat inclusive menu. Good idea! All great dishes. Tried them all!
Berkeley North offers great food and great drinks. It never fails to impress!
Servers were wonderful, knowledgeable of menu and friendly. Had a great night celebrating my friends retirement. Food fantastic!
Twice we have been here. Food is fabulous healthy beautifully presented. Great wine list. Love this place. Owner is warm and welcoming and service friendly and efficient.
Will be back for sure.
A favorite choice for dining, lunch or dinner, whether personal or business. A lovely healthy option in the heart of Hamilton
Nice ambience, great service and really good food. Definitely would return.
Wonderful experience. One of Hamilton's best, if not the best restaurant at present!
Great food, great service, great vibe. 👌🏽
Liked the food so much we went back after the show for dessert.
Went for my daughter's 27th Birthday with a couple of friends. Beautiful sharing plates and fantastic cocktails, made it a fabulous night!
This was my first time at the venue. It is very nicely decorated and the servers were very good and polite. The west coast salad with salmon was one of the best salads ive ever had. I definitely recommend the place for healthy and high quality foods. Worth the expense.
Excellent food, service and atmosphere. Love the fresh ingredients and fusion of flavours. Very accommodating with gluten and vegetarian options. Love the freshly made food. Absolutely delicious! Great service as well!
I chose Berkeley North to celebrate a good friends birthday . Chef Jonathan lived up to his reputation by preparing the " perfect " meal . The food was fresh and the sauces amazing . The tapas style suited the occasion perfectly .The wine list complimented our food choices . This was our first time here but not our last - Thanks for making our night even better .
Food was great server was great. Food came out super fast, though it is wasn't busy when we came in. Defiantly would try again.
We had a wonderful experience at Berkeley North. The cheese and sourdough is absolutely delicious. The west coast halibut never disappoints and the new addition to the menu - steak and crispy potatoes was incredible. Perfect for dinner with friends and family. Tip: the dishes come out one after another, so make sure you are ok with sharing plates.
The food was fantastic. Took my daughter and her boyfriend out for dinner and wanted to try someplace new for a change. The steak ....salted potatoes.....green beans...mushroom duplings ...and cheese cake all cooked to perfection and absolutely delicious.
Our service was pleasant, not a thing to compain about ....just not exceptional. She did not seem very sure of herself ...maybe she was new.
I will definately go back again ...the food and atmospere are worth it!!!
Delicious food, great service, nice atmosphere - great menu items to choose from. Would definitely go back!
Fabulous tasty food. All dishes very good - some particular innovative. Give yourself enough time.
Dined with my sister. My 4th time here, her first. After a rather lengthy examination and explanation of the menu--several things "not on it" -- in the process of preparing new menus for fall items--some things substituted. So to explain the "sharing plates" concept, plus keep track of what was available and what wasn't, well it was awkward, at first. The food was exceptional. Local, fresh, innovative. Service attentive, intelligent, caring. The only comment I would have to make about the "value" was that I was rather shocked to examine the bill (which was divided in two, exactly) was that the salted potatoe and steak dish we shared was $44.00.
It was very very good. But I have never paid that much for a single item at dinner.
The food was amazing, so so good! I love being able to put my own bowl together with ingredients that I love! We will be back soon!!
Great food, with unique and very tasty combinations of flavours and textures. Interesting cocktails too. The wine list was small but had some delicious choices. And great service from Tassia!
Never been disappointed by a dish, except for wanting more! Prices are justified with creativity and genuine love for each dish. There's always something different and wonderful on the menu. It's a wonderful treat!
Food was delicious, especially the ceviche. Good service. Gets a bit loud as the restaurant fills up though.
Lovely fresh innovative food
good food and service. healthy options too....
Wait....Why are you asking me to do you a favor by writing this review and giving me nothing in return and then when my review is not 50 characters in length stopping me from submitting it??
So you ask for a favor and then complain when I don't do it good enough? Ouch
Berkeley North 9/10
There, now I have left a review of 50 characters or more...
Overall great experience! Loved the ambience and friendly staff. Food was very good, and the family style sharing over several courses was different and made for good conversation! We will definitely return and recommend Berkeley North to everyone!
Delicious, great ambiance and wonderful service - I will be back!
I thoroughly enjoyed creating my salad! What a great spot to grab lunch in Hamilton's vibrant James Street North area. I would have liked friendlier service.
Love the menu selection. Looking forward to trying the housemade pastas and other housemade selections.
This resto never disappoints -- chef Jon is beyond creative with his menu choices, paying particular attention to detail. Each dish is like an art exhibition that's here for a limited time only...because you eat it so quickly because everything is so tasty.
Carl's cocktails -- wow! Just tell this guy what flavours tickle your fancy -- citrus, peaty, creamy, foamy,and he'll craft something wonderful for you.
Love this place and can't wait to go back.
Will definitely come. Thank you for a pleasant experience
We had a delicious meal for a reasonable price with wine/beer pairings included. The staff were welcoming and very accommodating.
My friend and I recently dined here for the first time. I made reservations because I had heard good things about Berkeley North. We were very pleased with the food and service. We split a few dishes and loved them. The staff were relaxed and attentive and the atmosphere was cool. My friend and I like to think that we have good taste and we both enjoy cooking. We found the dishes were creative and full of flavour and the staff seemed very interested in what they were preparing. We ordered the mushroom dumplings twice, the potatoes were great, and the asparagus was amazing. I will definitely be back. :)
Great concept. Good location. I loved the food. Service was exceptional. Well done.
I wish the portions were slightly larger
My husband and I visited with another couple this past week. The service was great and the food was very imaginative and delish ! It was a wonderful sharing menu with good variety. The location and ambiance was terrific. I will certainly be back! Thanks for a wonderful evening !
Loved the exposed brick and beams inside and the whole presence of the place, food and service was great, good spot for a date.
Amazing, fresh, delicious food. Fantastic service. A must visit. We can't wait to go again!
Delicious - the green beans were outstanding! A definite must-try.
Five of us had an excellent business lunch and I have recommended it for a good casual lunch or dinner to several friends already. Helpful staff bright cheery atmosphere
