Fantastic all round - only thing that was not PERFECT was price of corkage but should really not plan on bringing alcohol to a wine bar!

Loved the "feed me" menu option, food was delicious and they catered for me being coeliac. The only small negative for us, it was an extremely cold night and as we were seated right at the door, every time the door opened we froze.
Will definitely return. Thank you for a great dinner

Had to sit with jacket on shoulders. Heating should have been turned up or on! Positioned with full view of dishwasher being emptied and clatter of dishes. One of the side dishes ordered was completely forgotten - had to remind waitress. Meat and fish dishes - tasty, but other dishes not clean and crisp .

I would recommend this restaurant because our party of 6 older people were able to HEAR each other, partly because there were no noisy tables and partly because the obliging waitress turned down the background music. There are many good restaurants to choose from but very few that cater to the many affluent older people who expect and can afford the best but have very little choice when it comes to restaurants which keep the background music where it belongs. I.e. In the background. !!!
We would welcome recommendations from Open Table about other good restaurants which allow conversation.

Ok, I'm going to be picky here because its price range dictates it. The service was the best i have had in Australia in over 25 years. This was not restricted to our waitress but included the staff as a whole. The general feeling of the place is of class but at the same time down to earth, not too noisey and no ridiculous music pumping in the background. My main criticism is of the food, whilst it was fair, i expected it to be outstanding for the venue. I need not venture into every dish, however, one of note is the Pork Belly, which was slightly over cooked and a tad dry but the most disappointing side was that the crackling had no crackle? Its not hard to do so i question why it was missed on both plates that ordered it. That been said, a point of excellence was the pumpkin and the trout which were both excellent.

The ambience and set up of the restaurant is amazing. We tried the feed me menu. The array of dishes was quite expansive ranging from seafood to meat with plenty of sides. The french onion soup was very thick and more like a dip, the seafood main was had an interesting side of chips to dip in the bisque.
I have eaten quite a bit of French influenced food and I sad to say there was nothing that really grabbed me to say "oh you need to try..." from the menu. The wine selection was excellent.

A rare gem in Melbourne's north. The food was delectable - tasty with a great choice of side dishes matched with an excellent selection of wines. Staff were friendly, attentive and knowledgeable about the menu and wine list. The creme caramel is the piėce de résistance!! Would definitely recommend Hell of the North even if you have to ride over cobblestones to get there!!!

The ambience and food were really good.
However, the waiting / table service were indifferent at best (with exception of 1 great waitress) and really did spoil the occassion. All 5 of us left a bit disappointed with the experience.
