Last night had elements of disaster as we arrived at 5:30 pm before a 7:30 pm ACL Moody show. Despite two hour window, we barely made it to the theater on time. Can't say what might had held up the waitress from the kitchen's performance, but 10 minutes to get water after being seated is wrong, as were so many other things, like bread arriving 25 minutes after and without small plates. 1 out of 4 dishes was lukewarm and had sober returned for heat when finally served at 6:45 pm. The beer requested earlier arrived via another wait person after we paid the check at 7:15 pm. I acknowledge and respect that the manager stopped by to see how we were doing and she responded with concern and clarity on how they were not up to snuff that night. So if this disappointment is not mirrored in other reviews, then please disregard it as an aberration. Most of the food was fine (Caesar salad, pasta bolognese, salmon) and it is a nice room and convenient.

I scheduled a dinner for a graduating friend of mine. Unfortunately the graduation was delayed, but the north staff seated us even 25 minutes before their closing time. Half of our party of 8 weren't even able to make it in time, but we felt no negative pressure from the north staff regardless. They were incredible hosts and patient. Highly recommend!

The wait time for our salad and then the entrees was extremely long. We had early dinner reservations and it was a good thing or we would have missed our evening activity. There were numerous open tables and no wait so we never discovered the cause for the delays.

She provided world class attentive service. She was so sweet and gracious. Knowledable about menu items and great recommendations. The final food products were nicely seasoned, but arrived cold. Returned and remedied, but all told, dinner should have been consumed and completed in less then the 2 1/2 hours that we were forced to wait. Although no fault of Katie, food never should be served cold. The manager was engaged as well.

We go quite often. When we couldn’t find a reservation there last minute, we decided to book at North Italia 2ND STREET. What a disappointment! We got our usual favorites - bruschetta, white truffle garlic bread, kale salad with chicken, and pesto pasta with chicken. The bruschetta had really gross thick prosciutto on it, the white truffle garlic bread was inedible stale bread covered in a soggy oily mess, and the chicken on both the salad as the pesto pasta was chewy and dry. Definitely not worth the $115. The kitchen staff here needs to go to the Domain location to learn how it’s done. We will definitely not be going back to this location in the future!

They couldn’t seem to get the food out of the kitchen although the kitchen was full of people in the restaurant wasn’t that crowded. Chicken Parmesan came out hot but vegetables on the side work cold and pasta was Luke warm.

Food was great, environment was fun, and the restaurant is beautiful. The service was awful. Hostesses were not friendly, we waited 10 minutes before our waitress came and she would disappear for another 10-15 minutes between visits.

We had a mix-up with our order and we never resolved it. Plus, she never once came to refill our drinks. We had to ask for a refill. This was our first time dining there and it will be our last time.

A check-in once in awhile helps make the time more manageable. The only other critical feedback is the place was maybe 25% occupied when we were seated, the wife and I dressed nice for an event and date night, and the hostess seats a woman and two young, unruly kids right next to us. An odd selection, to say the least. The food was solid, served at the right temperature, just a bit slow.

The food was great, the portions of the vegetable sides with the beef tenderloin was scarce, however that did help us save room for dessert! Will definitely be back to try some delicious looking pasta.

My daughter lives in New York and is in college but her favorite Austin restaurant is north. We had a nice table and overall the food was excellent as always. The service was fine, but not over the top good as it normally is. It’s a really nitpicky little thing, but my husband ordered an iced tea, and the server just never refilled it until my husband asked and for some reason that just miffed him a little bit. I had cocktails so I was happy!

We sat outside and the weather was perfect, our waiter was great and all of our food was amazing. My only gripe had nothing to do with the restaurant - $30 to park for a few hours on a Sunday afternoon.
