    Ate here for my sister's birthday. It was 5 p.m. on a Monday, so it wasn't very busy. The food is amazing, the staff was nice, and the happy hour prices are ridiculously cheap. Oh, and the margaritas were really good too. Not a huge fan of the location, but would definitely recommend.

    Food was excellent. Service overall was good. However, the waiter seemed like he was in a rush from the moment he came to our table the first time to greet us. He kept trying to take our order even though we mentioned we were not ready yet. Then during our meal kept checking in to see if we were done. At one point he asked if we wanted desert. I asked and he read us a list of available deserts. They had a few that sound good. I said was interested and wanted to think about it for a moment. Almost instantly the waiter responded and said he would just bring us the check instead. So I agreed, paid or bill and made our way out. I don’t think the waiter was intentionally trying to be rude, but it was obvious to our group that he was rushing us even if he wasn’t aware of how he was coming across. I WOULD STILL TOTALLY EAT HERE AGAIN. TOTALLY RECOMMEND IT TO OTHERS.

    Bustling little place that has a small but mighty menu. Our server was great, the seafood platter was the perfect amount of food to share, and the bread was amazing. The seafood is the chef's selection and the brothy shellfish was tasty, if not my husband's favorite. Asparagus and potatoes on the other side of the plate were perfect. A phenomenal dessert selection was passed on in favor of a wonderful chocolate martini.

    This is one of my favorite restaurants in Cherry Creek. Great food, outstanding service (Travis was wonderful), the only drawback is how noisy it: I’m a quiet talker and my date has a difficult time hearing me. It’s still worth it! I go to North again and again. Definitely recommend it.
