Good New England food, particularly the main courses. The salads could have been more tasty - the Caesar salad was rather bland; the spinach salad was better. The ambiance was old New England which has a warm feel.

Excellent, food, service a great place for date night. Love old buildings being used and not just torn down. Slow cooked beef rib was perfect and the Woodsman cocktail was outstanding.
Large party of 8 near us was noisy was the only drawback.

We were seated promptly. Tables are nicely spaced. Service was excellent. Extensive wine list. Enjoyed the food. All were well prepared. Ribeye had too much connective tissue, or five stars on food. It tasted great.

Desserts were also very good, but I recommend sharing. They are large after their meals.

Sitting in the bar area was difficult to hear my wife. I didn’t know when making the reservation that “standard seating” was a high top table in the bar area. We did ask to move but they didn’t have any tables available in the dining room. Waitress seemed annoyed with us whenever she came by our table. Food was good but wasn’t hot. The plate was cold so maybe that cooled it off. Waitress would only look at my wife when she spoke to us. We may try them again, could have just been an off night.

I remember North House as Avon Old Farms Inn from many years ago. I was happy being there, although much has changed. As I was leaving, I brought my friend to see the room, and it had diners in it. I asked to be seated in the forge room; however, I was told they weren't seating in there. So I don't know what that response was about. However, the service was excellent; the young lady who cared for us was charming and thorough. The bar was hopping, so kudos to North House.

The North House as the perfect anniversary spot. We sat in a booth right next to a roaring fireplace. Very romantic. And the food was as good as the vibes!

The service was incredible but knowing it was an anniversary occasion we were sat at a bar booth, there was a group of 3 couple pretty much having dinner with us being loud. The food and service was incredible but knowing it was a special occasion it was completely disappointing. Our server and runner were incredible but knowing this was special occasion it was completely let down. We are local and chose this place because the owners were local and as local business owners we chose it. But we were sat in a horrible seating knowing it was a special occasion. It Ruined it for us.

The North House never disappoints. Our waitress was great, we sat in the bar to catch the Sox game. The 4 of us had plenty of room in our booth and the food was outstanding. Def try the ricotta app and the scallop dish with pasta pillows. Everything was fresh and cooked to perfection. Also changed our reservation twice and it was no problem. Highly rec The North House.

After searching on Open Table for a restaurant we have never tried that would book with the OT dining reward, I was intrigued by this one. It was a leisurely drive on a Sunday afternoon to a beautiful setting. The service was perfection. We started with a Late Harvest cocktail (fig vodka, lemon, cranberry, and APPLE BUTTER-OMGNESS it was delicious. Apps of tender fried calamari and peppers and pork belly with figs-both - perfect. Dinner was slow braised short ribs with roasted vegetables over sweet potato purée. Enjoyed a French 75 cocktail with dinner that was light snd refreshing. 5 stars all the way! Will be back. I love they have private dining rooms to reserve-perfect for an upcoming milestone birthday for my husband.

The food was great and they have a vast drink selection. A very nice setting inside and it wasn’t too loud. Our server was very friendly. Our food did take a while to get to the table but they comped a third drink for us because of it. Overall a good experience.
