“Great food but the service.....”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 June 2014

I went on a Sunday evening with family members. The restaurant did not seem that busy. The waitress came relatively quickly but took forever to return when we asked for a bar/drink menu. Bar drinks, appetizers, and dinner were ordered at the same time. Drinks and appetizers arrived after an acceptable wait. We kept waiting for the salad and rolls as the appetizer dishes were cleared but had our entrees arrive first. We had to ask about the salad and rolls and were told the kitchen had finished the entrees too quickly. In my opinion, the rolls and salad could have been brought out while we were finishing the appetizers. (They were brought out AFTER we had finished the entrees). The portion sizes of the Chicken Oscar were very large. Steaks were appropriately sized. I personally DO NOT consider two small pieces of grilled bell pepper and 3 small deep-fried onion rings as a serving of vegetables but, obviously the chefs at North 82 do. We asked for containers for our leftovers and, rather than remove the dishes and put them in containers for us (as had been done on all previous visits), our server brought us a stack of clear plastic containers so we could do it ourselves. Problem #1: There were 4 of us at a 4-person square table with very little room to maneuver dinner plates, salad plates, drink glasses, condiments, bread basket and the containers. (Mine almost ended up in my lap!) Problem #2: The containers she brought us are suitable for salads, cold sandwiches, desserts but not for heavier items like the chicken and mashed potatoes. (Table next to us had their leftovers packed away from the table in an appropriate Styrofoam container.) Additionally, my leftovers had to travel in a cooler for 800 miles so I had to purchase suitable storage containers at the dollar store.
Recap: food was delicious with generous portions but service left a lot to be desired

“Excellent food, slow kitchen”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 June 2014

We shared a meal and added soup--had more than enough food! Steak was done perfectly, soup was delicious & garlic mashers were great! Our server was very busy but still attentive and very sweet, but the kitchen was quite slow. We would still return as long as not in any hurry.

“Great portion sizes!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 June 2014

Very good food, portion sizes are very, very large. The Cesar salad is big enough to feed 3 people - sea food past was pretty good but I recommend substituting in penne noodles.

“Excellent cuisine; excellent service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 May 2014

This restaurant has been revamped and has absolutely the best prime rib in the City. The service is excellent and they go out of their way to make you feel welcome and comfortable. I would highly recommend this restaurant to anyone.
