Food was incredible! The service was some of the best in Hamilton for sure. Will be back!
The food here is just amazingly good. Amazing cocktails. The food is different but in a wonderful “dream about it later” way. They use the freshest ingredients and put everything together in a very unique way. Love that you can share so you get to try so many of the chef’s great creations. The avocado salad, mushroom dumplings, fresh cheese, tomato toast, tempura shrimp...all so good! Can’t wait to go again and try some other dishes.
Fresh cheese on sourdough bread - basically changed my life.
Excellent food and great service. This is an unusual restaurant that promotes a lively dinner atmosphere.
This is a restaurant not to be missed is Hamilton. We enjoyed every dish we chose. The sharing plates were delicious with sizes perfect for tastings. Do try the sourdough bread with tomatoes. Service was excellent with perfect timing in the delivery of each plate. Excellent value especially if you arrive early enough to get a good bottle of wine at half price.
The Valentines tasting sharing menu was just right for the occasion
First time there, loved everything about it. Food was fantastic!
Absolutely delicious food - we devoured everything! Staff were extremely nice and accommodating, love the decor with all the tiny potted plants - so cute!
Our first time there and we were so pleased. The smaller portions for sharing is a great idea to try new and various things...the crispy eggplant was delicious! The entrees were a good portion without being huge...I had to crispy sweet and sour beef and my friend had the crispy polenta - both were excellent. We finished off with an amazing dessert. I would certainly recommend this restaurant for an occasion or just a casual meal.
Very interesting and different foods. Like the vegetarian options though could be more. Great server.
Our first visit but now our last - the staff were wonderful and the food delicious. The cheese toast (fresh ricotta and home made sourdough bread) was to die for!
Amazing food and service, lovely homy atmosphere and no waste on the portion sizes because there are shared plates ! Highly recommended
Exceptionally friendly and helpful staff. Great food choices, well presented.
It was a birthday celebration with 2 friends who had never been to Berkley North. They loved everything about the restaurant but particularly the food. My friend commented that “the chef gets it exactly right”, “subtle flavours and impeccably prepared”. Berkley North is my favourite Hamilton restaurant and now it may be their favourite as well.
Great atmosphere and Matthew is a terrific host. Keep up the great work.
Wonderful and tasty. I do wish they would of mentioned my friends birthday as I had out that in the booking. But no mention of it all all. It is casual but good food.
Excellent food! The culinary team is truly phenomenal. We were told early in the evening that we weren't allowed to order our own dishes, so we were able to sample a large portion of Berkeley North's menu. The fresh pasta, cheese toast, duck salad, and chicken balls were to die for. We didn't particularly feel that the pricing of the menu was ideal, considering some dishes were quite small. The pasta was delicious, but was 10 pieces and $22. Our server seemed put off by our group early in the evening, and so the rest of the night with her was rather... uncomfortable. My virgin drink was $11, which I found to be excessive. I don't quite understand why our server was so unimpressed with our group, seeing as we were a larger party and she was guaranteed an 18% tip (already built into our bill). Perhaps that's why she was relatively cold. Our tip was decided before we arrived, and perhaps that lead to her not prioritizing good service at our table. An efficient worker, but I couldn't help but feel her staring down her nose at me.
The service was outstanding. The young lady who looked after us was amazing. Very helpful, pleasant and professional.
This was one of the best restaurants I have had the pleasure of visiting (and I travel almost every week so I eat out all the time). They even got my teenager to love brussel sprouts!
Loved it...great, friendly service, lovely ambiance and great food. My only request would be to take out a table or two to make it more spacious.
Amazing. Would dine here everyday if I could!
Menu was different at first glance. Food was different than usual restaurant but was awesome. Everyone should try this restaurant!
Fantastic dinner! My wife and I had a great time. Lively, great food and service!
This was my second dining experience at Berkeley North and it did not disappoint. My friend who was dining with us has a garlic allergy and they were able to accommodate her no problem and she had plenty of selection, a rarity for her. The coattails were delicious and the food was superb! Can’t wait to visit again!
We were there during a snowstorm, so it was very quiet. And we really enjoyed the quiet aspect of it.
The food was creative and very good, and the atmosphere very cosy. Would love to go back.
While the menu seems unassuming, the food comes out specular. The staff was friendly and know an impressive amount about the food.
The food is fresh and so tasty. But what adds to the charm ang amazing food is the phenomial staff. Our waitress Chloe was so pleasant, knowledgeable about the food and so upbeat!! I would definitely recommend for lunch and/or dinner!!
Excellent, innovative, delicious menu options. Attentive staff with helpful suggestions for first-timers - Berkeley North will be visited again soon!
The shareables we chose were delicious! We had the shrimp tempura, the chili beef, the homemade ravioli and Arctic char for dinner. All were delicious, and we loved how we got to taste 4 different things on the menu. We then had a chocolate dessert as it was my husband's birthday, and they bought a candle out, which was nice :) Half-price bottles of wine from 5-6pm so we got to enjoy a lovely bottle. Watch if you want a glass though, they get $. All in all we had a great time. Tables by the window are nicer, nice decor and great service.
Creative dishes with lots of different textures and flavours. Friendly and efficient service.
Would like to come back in the summer when the patio is open.
Fantastic date with my hubs. This was our second visit. Food was great but the drinks were outstanding. Make sure to have a cocktail when you go. The bartender is incredible.
Incredible food. Staff that feel like friends. Top notch service. A reliably great meal.
Excellent service with a unique, well-crafted prix fixe menu for New Year's Eve. Vegetarian options were all tasty.
Great place in downtown Hamilton. Food is great and service is wonderful too. Would highly recommend.
Amazing as always. Sourdough/fresh cheese and the Char are worth the drive. Favourite restaurant in Hamilton.
Best New Years Eve dinner (experience) we've had. We didn't want a party, we wanted a nice dinner with friendly people in a comfortable restaurant, with wonderful food! Matt and Dianna have (with their staff) provided an incredible experience. (Prices were incredible as well!)
First time at Berkley North and so glad we picked this restaurant. Loved everything about it, the atmosphere, the vibe and service. Found the menu to be a little different and didn’t know what to expect but when the food came, everything tasted soooo good! Definitely will be going back!
