We were looking for somewhere interesting for lunch last weekend and ended up at the Berkeley North in Hamilton. What excellent luck. I had been looking at TripAdvisor and decided to try something on King William as there seemed to be several on the street. Berkeley North was our first choice and we were very pleased indeed. The service was excellent, right from the moment that we darkened their door.

We were seated and the sparking water was on the table almost immediately. We decided on salads, the salmon and some of the appetizers.

Amazingly, and unusually, we enjoyed everything. The greens in the salads seemed to have been chosen, individually, by hand, for their freshness and quality and the sliced carrots seemed to have been very lightly pickled.

The appetizers were clearly freshly made when we ordered as was the salmon.

This restaurant is highly recommended.

Business meeting - we both have the same salad. I had a perfectly prepare piece of fish on mine.

But look at my picture, there was this smoked salt, with a botanical flavour with an outstanding dressing and we both stopped when we tasted it.

Great service.

I recently had a special birthday dinner here with my Mom and sister. The tasting menu for two people for $75 is an amazing deal. We were able to choose one item from each of 5 courses and, as there were three in our party (one vegetarian) we added an additional appetizer and main. Service was excellent and the decor is modern and inviting with the entire front window opening to the street. The food was exceptional - every dish we chose was excellent. I highly recommend this restaurant. I did find the wine prices to be on the high side so you may want to check to see if you can take your own wine and pay the corkage.

What has been written about the quality of the food served and the quality of service is accurate. Both are extremely good.
If we had eaten during happy hour or 1/2 price wine Wednesday we would have likely rated this restaurant a 5, but we didn’t. The wine is overpriced and coupled with the generally expensive dishes we did not see an adequate trade off of price to experience. This made the restaurant only average, sadly.

We are still talking about this meal 2 days later!

Went for the dinner for 2 special (between 5pm and 6pm). I believe it was $75.99 for 5 shared courses, and what a steal! This definitely felt like a much more expensive meal.

Each course was more delicious than the last. Plenty of options for meat-eaters, veggies and even vegan options. My non-veggie boyfriend loved the veggie menu - particularly the gorgeous lemon ricotta pasta and the fried green beans. They use local, in season produce and the attention to detail really shows. The cocktail menu was also interesting and had lovely non-alcoholic options.

This was some of the best service I have received in a very long time. Our waitress was clearly excited about the food and the concept of the restaurant, and it really showed in how she lovingly explained each dish. Other staff stopped and chatted with us - everyone had a great sense of humor, seemed to truly love working there, and couldn't have been friendlier. We had a great time.

Decor is beautiful and trendy and the patio was absolutely lovely on this up-and-coming strip of restaurants.

Overall, we can't say enough good things. We are already talking about when we will make the drive to try the summer menu.
