We had the tasting menu for two for $75 with a half price bottle of wine it is a good value. If you aren't getting wine then depending on what you order it may work out to less if you have it a la carte. Either way it is a nice way to dine as you get to have a variety of dishes. The house made cheese and sourdough bread was delicious and fresh. Mushroom dumplings tasty, and steak was excellent. The duck salad was good but didn't stand out as much as the other dishes. The vegan cheesecake was a nice light finish to the meal. The wine selection is good too. We had the KEW winery pinot noir which was a perfect match. Great date night dinner.
Everything was outstanding
Just very warm inside- was a very warm day and garage open which was nice ambiance but it was a bit uncomfortably warm
Loved it tho! Will be back again and again!
We were thoroughly pleased with Berkeley North--what a fantastic find in Hamilton. Our waitress was exceptional--always making sure we were pleased with the different courses. Loved the goat cheese and the rib eye steak courses. We couldn't have asked for a better experience for our special occasion. We will definitely recommend Berkeley North to our friends.
We enjoyed the tasting menu and shared a 1/2 price bottle of Cava. Loved the tuna crudo with plums and was surprised just how much we enjoyed the eggplant! Must go back and bring our friends/family.
Service was excellent. Staff was very attentive to our needs. Highly recommend.
Perfect date night! Tomato Toast, Duck salad, Steak Frites, coffee ice cream. Delicious and great service.
beautiful restaurant, great food and the loveliest server
Beautiful open and airy, food was amazing and great staff. A true gem
The service was excellent and food was very unique in the presentation and was very tasty. Table positions are quite close so if you are looking for an intimate or private location this might not be the best option.
Ordered a bunch of apps to share- shrimp toast, avocado salad, tuna crudo and mushroom dumplings, as well as a few mains - halibut and pasta. Everything was so fresh and delicious. The avocado salad was my favourite. Portions were on the smaller side. Would definitely go back again
I took my husband here for his birthday - the service was quite good and we really enjoyed the food. The only negative was it was during a heat wave and the restaurant was not air conditioned - extremely uncomfortable - in fact the couple next to us left. We felt sorry for the servers/chefs - it must have been unbearable. We would definitely go back but at a different time of year.
We had a wonderful experience. This restaurant is a gem in the heart of Hamilton
I finally tried Berkeley North, and loved it so much that I've been a couple of times in the last two weeks - a dinner with my husband, and then lunch with my dad. For dinner we shared the tasting menu, and everything was outstanding. I loved the green beans so much i insisted on ordering them as an appetizer for lunch. The menu isn't huge, which in my opinion is a good thing - I'd rather a kitchen focus on doing a few things well than overextend themselves in both execution and freshness of product. I love that there are delicious options for vegetarians, pescatarians, and omnivores. Staff are friendly and professional, and really care that you're enjoying your meal.
Awesome! Amazing food!
Good dinner with friends before spectacular Cirque Du Soleil Crystal show. Very interesting menu with some unusual items. Excellent service with a special touch.
The food was delicious but the portions were very small, we order 4 dishes and barely felt full. I do think the quality is good but they could add a bit more on the plate.
The best food and service I've had in a long time! The ambiance, right down to the garnishes on each dish, were absolutely beautiful.
Sensational Service and Fabulous Food! That's the combination that keeps me coming back for business and for pleasure! Karl is a magician behind the bar and Matthew is one of the most genuine and passionate Owners in this city's new vibrant restaurant scene! I've entertained clients at Berkeley North from as far away as Kingston, Toronto and Oakville and they all will be back!
Excellent dinner experience from the food to the service. Very healthy and tasty. The cocktails were good too!
This lovely King William neighbourhood restaurant is a gem. The owners are lovely people who hire wonderful staff to provide an overall outstanding experience. The food is fresh and delicious with options for vegan and vegetarian as well as meat. They also have a top notch bartender who understands wine pairings and will make you any drink you like! Great for sitting inside and out or even just at the bar. We eat here frequently and I'm never disappointed!
I've been to BNorth 5 times in less than a year. Enough said!
We were a group of three who really enjoyed that appetizers and entrees were all suitable for sharing. The food was original and wonderful tasting.
Great food and even better service! Loved the combination and variety of flavours offered on the menu. Would definitely return!
Unfortunately sat over a cold air vent.... otherwise the usual highly enjoyable dining.
Exceptional food and service!! Will most definitely be back again!! Ordered from the sampling menu. Food was divine!!
The cheese toast is a must try! Definitely recommend and will be back :)
This is the fourth time we've been to Berkeley North and have never been disappointed! The food is wonderful and the shared plates allow you to try many different dishes. The staff, including the owner are incredibly friendly, helpful and honestly make you feel that you are a friend and they're happy to see you. Wonderful atmosphere! We were there on 'Soul Saturday' which was a bonus, as there was an amazing band playing on the street that just added to the fun ambience. We were there for dinner, but it was a great date night! Gotta try the shrimp toast, crispy chicken, or steak!
We had a great experience at Berkeley North. Our server, Matt, was attentive and friendly. The tasting menu was great value, delicious, and plenty of food for two. I recommend indulging in a half price bottle of local wine - an absolute steal for the quality of wine on offer. We will definitely visit again.
Great place to eat! The food never disappoints. The BLT is the best I've EVER had.
Great wine choices. A perfect spot to enjoy dinner or lunch!
This was my first time at Berkeley North, but it definitely won't be my last! The crispy cod sandwich was amazing and the service was excellent. My guests were equally impressed. Such a great spot - not to be missed.
Very disappointed. I don’t mind to spend extra money for their tapas style menu but here it was nothing special. The dumpling was good but I had better for half price in a good dumpling restaurant. The shrimp were ok but definitely not worth the price and the duck salad ... oh well...we decided to stop there. The service was OK, I am not sure the waitress has much experience. Anyway, for this price I was thinking of a very special experience but the overall feeling is they are having a laugh. There is definitely better restaurant, specially in this street or downtown Hamilton. And if you want a true modern take on a tapas/small share meal style, I would recommend « backhouse » in Niagara on the lake, definitely worth the drive.
We were very excited to see all the new places on King William Street, Hamilton. Berkley North was exactly what we like...great food, great service, a relaxed but refined atmosphere. Being vegan is sometimes a challenge when eating out but Berkley had specific dishes and they were amazing.
The Hammer (Hamilton to non-residents) is starting to have a vibrant dining and live music scene. Berkeley North is leading the way on the dining side of the equation, and was within a short walk to a great small concert venue following dinner. Parking was easy and didn't break the bank. Layers of flavors and textures in a perfectly orchestrated tasting menu. The halibut was notable for freshness between the comfort food edemame puree and delicate crunch of the puffed buckwheat and black sesame topping. My mouth is watering again as I write this. We'll be back.
Lunch was great!
Went back 2 days later and it was fantastic!
Will be back. A LOT!!
Fantastic dinner! We have ventured into the Hamilton food scene a lot of the years, and this is up there with one of the best meals my wife and I have had!
The green beans are unbelievable, the avocado salad unique and delicious, the halibut fantastic and the pasta is comparable with some of the best we’ve had in Italy (simple and tasty).
I’d recommend the restaurant to anyone!
We chose Berkley for birthday dinner with friends. The ambiance was true to its name - our friends commented on the "San Fran" vibe. The staff and service was excellent. The menu was tapas style and, although limited, was very creative and prepared beautifully. We'll be back to try the items we didn't get a chance to this visit.
Fantastic!! Everything we had including the cocktails were amazing. I will be back to my new favourite hot spot often!!! Service and food was exceptional.
Overall, not a bad night. We were slow to be seated, and even slower to get our drinks. Our 4 course meal came out plate by plate. Disappointed with the steak and frites, as there was a garlic butter taste to it (which was not like that 2 weeks ago, when I came for dinner). Server was friendly.
Will be back soon!
Delicious, warm and friendly staff and beautiful presentation.
This place is so awesome! So happy to have discovered it a few years ago. I am constantly a repeat customer :)
