Diner Reviews
  • "Everything was 'classy' ! The food, the wine, the service, the ambience were 'perfect'! Grazie mille, VW"

  • "We have eaten at North Square many times - both brunch and dinner. We have always been very pleased and walk away looking forward to our return. Try the brunch sampler. An amazing array of tastes - but then you will miss the French Toast.... among the best we gave ever tasted . Dinner time, the eatery gets romantic. With the lights subdued, NS becomes redecorated and ready for that special evening out. Once again the menu presents many interesting and well prepared choices. The portions are not big, but just about the right size for dinner. You'll walk out feeling comfortable . We have found the dinner service to be a little slow on several occasions. Overall NS feels like a Secret Neighborhood Treasure. REDECORATED"

  • "This place was a treat! I almost do not want to write the review for fear that it will get too busy! But if you want some great food and a really nice, white table cloth restaurant, this is the place. Definitely recommend."

  • "I always come to hear the wonderful Roz Coral and her trio on Sundays for brunch. The food is consistently good and well presented. The price is fair and you can't beat the high quality musicianship. This is one of the nicest jazz brunches in NYC and I highly recommend North Square."

  • "Great location and cozy and quiet enough for a good visit with out of town friends. Four of us ate 3 course prefix and it was really good at a great price. One went a la carte. Results: 2 had Venison -excellent, 2 had Bass- good, 1 had seared scallops- good. 2-KaleSalad,very good, 2-tomatoe soup excellent, 1 lobster/crab cakes-excellent. All really liked syrah/grenache blend wine, reasonable priced. Desserts were all excellent and gorgeous. My fav chocolate mouse cake, keylime pie, linzer torte, tough pic. Everyone went away happy."

  • "I dined here for the first time on my third visit to the Washington Square Hotel and wish I'd tried it sooner. All the members of my group of four had something different and we all praised the food quite highly. The staff were excellent. Very attentive. The North Square is worth a visit whether you're staying at the WSH or travelling from somewhere further afield."

  • "Traveling near Adelphi University? This restaurant was an easy place to be alone and an outsider. The staff and customers are pleasant to be around, and the family vibe is very nice. The food was really great - fresh, a bit on the foodie side, well-prepared. Great custom cocktails as well."

  • "Best brunch ever. Charming, cozy ambiance. Spent 2 hours at the table talking with friends, wait staff was patient and attentive- never a move made to get us out, even though restaurant filled up while we were there. Creative brunch menu featuring Pumpkin Pecan Pancakes, Challa French toast, citrus cured salmon plate as well as more lunch oriented items. Well priced delicious food, and outstanding service. There is an amazing Art Deco bar in back for evening drinks. Although this is an Hotel restaurant it feels more like a local neighborhood hang out."

  • "Don't think enough people know this really nice place so was not too hard to get into and was a great value as they offer a price fix Menu that was very good. Will return. Excellent service also."

  • "The place is great for a business lunch or when you need to hear each other talk. It's not cramped like a lot of restaurants. The food was good. It isn't cheap but equivalent to others in the area of its kind. These service was odd - we never got a waiter so finally had to ask the hostess. It seemed they were reluctant to serve us an we had different people come to the table at different times. It took a very long time overall."

  • "The small English feel of the room was spoiled by the arrival of a very large party that was noisy and took up our server's attention. Good prices for brunch/lunch however."

  • "Invited friends from out of town and we were delighted to have chosen North Square. EVERY DISH was a hit...well prepared, creative and beautifully presented. We had, between us, cod, hangar steak, scallops and halibut. Each was excellent. Appetizers great too!! Try Kale Salad....an acquired taste but beautifully done here. We will be back. If you can, be served by Gabriel...absolutely charming and efficient."

  • "This is a lovely little restaurant with consistently good food, modestly priced. Great bread and olives on the table, modestly priced wines by the glass. The food is clean, modest in size, hot when needed, well cooked and presented. Service is good."

  • "The food is excellent. Many classic dishes with a contemporary twist, preparation outstanding. Everything is made with care and attention, and therefore delicious. The rack of lamb was perfectly seasoned, pink inside, just as it should be. Potato galette was also perfect: full of flavor, not heavy of fatty. My dining companion had the short ribs -- absolutely no fat (not easy with short ribs), in a richly flavored sauce with ancho chili and other mysterious flavors -- cinnamon? Delicious. Best of all: it's quiet! You can hear whoever is on the other side of the table and have a conversation. Music is muted classic jazz, staff is friendly, relaxed and efficient."

  • "We live around the corner and we eat here regularly. Terrific food, with something for everyone. Friendly and professional service. Short ribs are outstanding and the coriander crusted tuna is memorable. Fantastic desserts!"

  • "Decided to eat in the lounge in back--cool bar and better ambiance."
    Dined on 3/14/2014
  • "The décor and customers are alike, dated. This is a good restaurant if you live in the neighborhood but would not travel to it, even if it was a 15 minute walk. The service was the best part and the waiter tried to steer us in the right direction. Good try but I wont be back."

  • "On a recent Sunday evening, we chose North Square for our party of five. Our age range was mid-80s to a six year old. Each of us found something to love, whether it be the delicious kale salad, or the incomparable tuna, or the tasty roast chicken. Service was nicely attentive and well-informed. What a beautiful setting for a family dinner."

  • "I made a business lunch reservation for ten and received the slowest service throughout the experience. The venue seemed understaffed delaying every aspect of the service. They were slow in putting bread on the table, taking our order and getting the food on the table. The group was so hungry the bread bowl was empty within minutes yet never replenished. The food was wonderful and so is the decor of the restaurant. But overall, the service needed improvement. What made the afternoon worse was the insensitivity of the waitstaff. No one came over to explain the delays. After everyone was finally served, I politely mentioned it to the server, who offered a defensive explanation but nothing more. Not good for business!"

  • "I had a wonderful dining experience @ North Square. We arrived and got a nice table in the corner viewing these colorful murals. We ordered the Kale salads which were sooo tasty. The main courses & gourmet sides came out piping hot. ...what a wonderful presentation !! Staff was on point and quite friendly...We got a mini tour of the establishment and I was impressed w/ how kind and professional the guys @ North Square are...thx for a wonderful dining experience...and we shall return"

  • "I have been meaning to try this spot for a long time, and the wait was worth it. I went with a friend for the restaurant week and the menu was varied, plentiful and tasty. The staff was very accommodating and we could hear ourselves talk to one another. This is a delightful restaurant and a great find."

  • "North Square is a wonderful restaurant for those who want to have reliably very good food in a peaceful, relaxing environment. The menu has excellent choices and the food is both delicious and artistically presented. I had the tamale and it was beautiful to look at as well as scrumptious. They always have an interesting selection of wines by the glass, which they allow you to try before ordering. The menu includes creative dishes as well as some simpler choices, thus pleasing everyone. The servers are friendly and helpful. The prices are reasonable. Highly recommended."

  • "The one saving grace about our experience was Rick the bartender. We should have stayed at the bar instead of being sat at our table. Our table for two was in between tables of parties four. The food was average. What really disappointed us was that at end of dinner I was charged extra for a glass wine that was not ordered. They did fix that, but when checking my bank account the next day I was not only charged for half the bill I shared with my partner, but also I was double charged for the whole bill. We also wondered where our waitress went because at the end of night, the bus boy was taking care of us. Let's just say we will not be returning here again."

  • "I love North Square. The food and service are consistently great. The space is lovely and you can actually have a conversation due to the quiet atmosphere! The hotel lounge next to the dining room is also a great place to meet up with a friend for a quiet cocktail or snack and you can order from the full restaurant menu as well."

  • "A perfect place for a leisurely get-together on a Sunday afternoon. If in mood for chatty visit ask to be seated in the front room, but the jazz is really wonderful as well."

  • "We had an small but excellent birthday dinner here. The food was delicious and the restaurant served my pre-ordered birt hday dessert without any reminder. The wait staff were lovely. We liked the intimacy of the space and the colorful decor. We were certainly go there again when we come to New York."

  • "I attended the jazz brunch to hear one of my favorite performers, Roz Corral. Unfortunately, things got off to a shaky start at reception, when we found the music area was fully seated. I made this request clear on my Opentable reservation note as requested by the restaurant. The man at check in gave me a semi lecture about making a special call ahead to reserve as they had so many reservations. Really? I thought that was the purpose of the "notes" section. In any event, the brunch was tasty as always. I love the bread basket with the cranberry nut bread and other assorted goodies. My omelette was cooked to order with a delicious salad. Service was just ok, and appeared disorganized. As always, the music was outstanding!"

  • "If you are going here for brunch, try your best to make it for the live jazz. It's adds a wonderful atmosphere to the already nice setting, however It in no way affects your conversation. The food is also great and reasonably priced! I would highly recommend the North Square."

  • "Food was blsh! Had sausage appetizer which looked like, 6 plain dry breakfast sausages on a plate, the side sauce had some flavor so you had to smother the sausage in it. Scallops were tough, quinoa was dry and tasteless. The waitress didn't seemed knew and not very knowledgeable, but was hesitant to find out the answers, it was like she was discouraging us to ask anything. She couldn't even be found when it was time for the check. Poor management. The only good thing as the wine! Wouldn't go again."

  • "Being a picky diner, I was very surprised to enjoy brunch at North Square at much as I did. The ambience is very pleasant and the food was tasty and reasonably priced too, especially since we chose the fixed price selections. We were allowed to sit and talk without being rushed out. I'll definitely go back again."
