I took my girlfriend out to this place for a date, and the service and the food were highlights of the experience! Everyone was very nice and helpful, frequently filling waters and asking if we were good. The food is local and has many unique flavours. I wish I could try everything there! The noise level was high but it was a Saturday night so I am not surprised, lunch or a weeknight may be a quieter option. Our cocktails were also delicious. We will definitely be back!
We had a great time trying new cocktails and tapas. We will be back.
Had never been to this restaurant but we on my list of King William restaurants. Was pleasantly surprised. The food was excellent served tapas style. The crispy beef and eggplant are still a vivid memory. Would highly recommend a visit. I will be back.
Great spot to eat. No complaints except that it is very noisy. Mushroom dumplings amazing.
Our server was one of the best I have ever had- knowledgeable, friendly and home town proud
Both the food and service at Berkeley North are exquisite
Went for lunch and we both ordered the salad. It was delish. Also indulged a bit and got their cheesecake which was awesome! Vegan and gluten free 👌🏼
Laura, our server, was exceptionally friendly and knowledgeable about menu items and some of our food preferences. A treat having her with us!
We had a great night. Love this restaurant because the staff truly care and the managers and bar tender are invested in the service and overall experience of the customer always love it. I would not order the polenta or pasta again. I find the Asian flare dishes are always great. The polenta was mush in centre and too heavy. The ricotta stuff ravioli were good but not overly different. We loved everything else. We also had a great server named Tanya. Overall a fantastic evening
Delicious food, great service!
All in all a pleasant dining experience. I admit, my expectations were a smidge higher. The food was solid. Only issue is when we ordered wine and a cocktail... they arrived well after our food arrived. The second round of drinks... another wait. It was a little disjointed and awkward waiting for drinks as our food got colder.
The food was amazing but our waiter Matthew made the evening spectacular. He let us know the specialties and described them so well we had to say yes and we were not disappointed. We were worried that we ordered too much food with two apps and two mains but he promised to pace everything. Started with the mushroom dumplings with ginger and scallions. Fabulous. Then had the Teriyaki Eggplant. Fabulous again. Schnitzel was on the menu but not available so Matthew proudly advised that there was a substitute Rib Eye sliced in a delectable sauce with tiny brussel sprouts and other tasty surprises. We realized we were then pleasantly satiated so we told Matthew and he asked if still wanted the 4th and final item, Artic Char, that we ordered. We said no thank you and he said no problem. He could have suggested it was so good and convinced us but we didn't need the extra. We will definitely be back and ask for Matthew to be our waiter. Started with a Blue Moon each and then a beer for me and wine for my partner. $100 + big tip. Very reasonable for an amazing dinner. Topped it off with Il Divo at FOnt Concert Hall. Doesn't get much better. Only complaint was that restaurant was full and quite noisy.
So happy we found this place. will definitely visit again and again.
Best service and food we have enjoyed in a long while
Food was delicious, fast, friendly. Good lunch menu to choose from.
food was alright but portions very small for the cost of meal. very limited menu. wouldn't go again.
The food was fantastic, servers were amazing and the atmosphere is just awesome!
The polenta was perfect!!!!
Fabulous restaurant - wonderful vibe with the most creative tasty dishes you’ll find anywhere in Hamilton.
One of my favourite restaurants ever, so happy it is in Hamilton (vs. Toronto, where it would very easily fit in). Have been here for small group dinners (girl's nights) and anniversary dinner date, it is the perfect restaurant for either. The cocktails are fantastic, unique but all yummy. It is sharing plate style, order ~4-5 dishes per couple, the plates may be a bit small but they are absolutely packed with delicious and creative flavours that satisfy your appetite (and don't leave you feeling like you're going to explode). Specifically, I recommend the mushroom dumplings, arctic char and the fresh cheese is a MUST. Would come here just for the fresh cheese and half price wine bottles on Wednesday! (they have an excellent wine selection as well). Service has also been impeccable, friendly and professional every time. Seriously, you can't go wrong with Berkeley North!
Wonderful service, great food, nice selection. Would recommend highly!
I enjoyed the ambience it was quite homey, yet chic. I went out for dinner to connect with old friends and the quiet atmosphere was great for conversation. They could really improve on the food aspect though. The meat was questionable to say the least. It reminded me of a typical middle school lunch hall "mystery meat." Maybe it was due to starvation, but I did enjoy a couple of the fries ordered by my friend.
Very comfortable and welcoming space. Service was warm and friendly from the moment we walked in, our server made great suggestions on the menu. Food was very nicely done with good presentation. Will absolutely returen.
Our group of 6 had a great time at Berkeley North! We enjoyed the relaxed feel and comfy decor. The shareable appetizers and entrees dining experience was the best way to try all of the creative menu options. We really enjoyed trying so many different flavours, everyone loved each dish and couldn't decide on a favourite. The owner engaged with our table, shared the restaurant's story and was knowledgeable about every detail of the dishes. The staff genuinely delivered a dining experience like no other!
Awesome food, awesome waiter Matthew, nice atmosphere!!!
Went here with my two girlfriends because of the positive reviews I had read. Menu is very limited. Bar was under stocked - they do not carry flavoured vodkas and several wines on the menu were sold out. Tapas-style appetizers made sharing fun. The fresh cheese on house-made sourdough was divine (placed a second order before we finished the first)! Tempura shrimp was good but nothing special, crispy polenta was good, and truffle-fresh pasta was delicious. Due to limited bar menu, we decided to go elsewhere for after dinner drinks. For the prices and limited selections, I would not recommend or return.
I really enjoyed the food and atmosphere. Looking forward to going again!
Birthday dinner with daughter and family it was very good and they provided a great dessert selection as a Bray gift thanks
Easily one of my favourites spots to grab a bite to eat. I have been a handful of times and each time have not been disappointed. Delicious food, excellent service, great wine list and unique & interesting options. Love the sharing aspect!
Amazing !!! 10/10 food was so good and prices were not to bad for the amazing food we got
Inventive and interesting cuisine served by helpful and enthusiastic staff. We truly enjoyed our visit. Highly recommend.
Absolutely amazing service! Sushi was great. Just a suggestion: smaller cut pieces.
Everything was delicious!
Although I booked on line, they couldn’t find our reservation. We were seated no problem.
If I’m not mistaken, our server was named Amanda! Such a vibrant and outgoing yet very down to earth service was provided with food and drinks surpassing expectations. We had high hopes headed into Berkeley north on a Sunday night and were blown away by the level of professionalism and interpersonal communication. In house guest sushi chef had some amazing treats! Cocktails were out of this world with some truly high quality cuisine.
the only reason i did not give it a 5 was due to the fact that several of their renouned plates are no longer o the menu...ie the green beans etc....and the menu has 1/2 the entree selections they used to
This was our second time to this restaurant. Love that the menu is built on share plates, which is why it's great for a date night. We wish they offered more selection for post meal coffee/tea as we're not (alcohol) drinkers but like to splurge on a latte or a cappuccino. The desert we had was kind of 'blah' too but our meal was divine! The staff are exceptional and even asked for feedback on how they could do better. Highly recommend!
Really delicious food. The service was very slow which got tiring after a while
If I were to review this restaurant in one word it would be "personable". The staff remembers their customers and their food preferences. They are accommodating and understanding of all dietary needs (vegan, vegetarian) without judgement. It is an excellent place for special occasions with delicious and unique foods. The service is both sincere and professional. A great place to treat yourself!
Consistently excellent! Fantastic service and delicious food. Will be returning shortly.
Absolutely wonderful experience....was actually there because of another friends recommendations....will definitely be back....food was incredible....wine was phenomenal and the service was stellar....incredible evening!
Well done Berkeley North.
We had the chicken balls and the shrimp - both extra tasty. The avocado salad was saltier than we like and the schnitzel was not very good as it was dry and salty too. We should have had more discussion with the waitress as it was our first time and would have benefited from advice. We will return
Great service and ambiance. Half price wines on Wednesdays was a bonus! Schnitzel a little overdone and the sauce was okay. Arctic Char was the best as well as the duck pate, mushroom dumplings and tempura shrimp. Sharing was fun and the server gave us great advice on portions. We'll be back!
