The menu is very interesting, in a good way. Although we do not go crazy with our food, we do like different types of food. We each had a small salad, my wife had the special house salad which she really liked, and I had a small duck confit salad, which was very good.
The serving proportions are also right sized for us, we shared one of their pizzas that had goat cheese, which gave it an excellent flavor and several other items; the crust was very good,and even thoguh my wife typically only likes thin crust, she liked what appearsed to be a hand tossed crust.

Scheduled a business lunch. Had to switch tables due to the privacy factor. The hostess handled it with ease. Delicious food. Great service. A little too noisy, however. Especially the music. Too loud.

Nice Saturday Evening Dinner
Upscale entrees or high-end burgers and pizza.
Food was very good and staff was attentive, but not overbearing.
Reasonably priced food and a wide selection of beers and wine.
They were 15 minutes late seating us, but it turned out to be worth the wait.
Will visit again.

Great food and drink at this place
This was only our second time at North American Bistro and we had a great time. From the time we walked in and started off with drinks before dinner at the Bar. The bartender was excellent and very personable - and the drinks she made were great.
The food was very good also.
5/3/2013 4:00:00 PM
Frequent visits to this restaurant and have never been disappointed with the food or service. Went with a party of six and all food from the wedge salad to the cheese cake was delicious. Nice wine list, good quality wines at a fair price. Will continue to go often.

Great Friday night fish fry to try!
we meet another couple there for the fish fry and it was great. Hard to find beer batter cod along with potato pancakes and a bright coleslaw. Waitress was attentive but not pushy. Can get noisy, but getting a booth helps.

Best Short Rib
I had the best short rib . . . a most tender chunk of meat, nestled in a bed of the tastiest spinach, nestled in a bed of blue cheese enhanced mashed potatoes. It was a nice presentation. Add the chief's cognac inspired sauce and tender mushrooms. It was great. Also had a beer you featured, "Polich Moon", very nice.
I don't know what I'm going to do when I return. I know I'll want to try something else but dang, I want this treat again.

North Star on our List of Faborites
We visit North Star every couple of months and find the service and food very good. For the first time we were seated in the back room and generally it was very pleasant. Our large party was able to spread out and the flowering trees were lovely. I think management should rethink the location of the trash bins. Right beyond this lovely tree are the commercial trash bins. This was the direct view of several of my family members and it is not pleasant to look at.
5/17/2013 4:00:00 PM
We came here for an anniversary dinner and it was perfect, just perfect. I had the salmon and my boyfriend had the bacon-wrapped meatloaf - both delicious. We got the crab cakes as an appetizer and they were fantastic too. We were so full by the time we were done with dinner, we requested dessert to go. We brought home the flourless chocolate cake and when we ate it later at home, the presentation was lovely even in a to-go box. I had a couple of specialty cocktails -- both cranberry - and they were great too. Our server was attentive and very kind. Overall a fabulous evening, I would highly recommend!
5/24/2013 4:00:00 PM
We have dined here many times and keep coming back because of the great food and service.
5/31/2013 12:00:00 AM
Good food, affordable prices
We had very nice dining experience. I had the beef Bourgogne which was excellent . Not as many selections for my wife, so she had the spinach & goat cheese salad with chicken. Lots of spinach leaves! No other items in the salad but very good. I would not eat here on a weekly basis, due to prices being more than a family restaurant, but still I thought reasonable. We will be back to try a burger, pizza or Sunday brunch. All in all a very pleasant dining experience.

Perfect for our group
I chose this restaurant because it was close to where my daughter was graduating with her masters degree. There were 7 in our party. Everything about it was above expectations. Love trying new places but this will definitely be a new favorite place to go for special occasions.
6/6/2013 4:00:00 PM
Delicious and tasty food - we were able to linger and visit without feeling rushed - great service - overall an enjoyable evening...
6/7/2013 12:00:00 AM
My best friend and I happened upon this restaurant while trying to find someplace to get lunch when our original plans fell through. We sat outside, and while the view isn't much, it was still nice to have the option to sit outside on a beautiful afternoon. I had the Scallop and Truffle salad, which was amazing. I love scallops and these were cooked very well. My friend wasn't feeling very well and just got a fruit cup, but she enjoyed it nonetheless. The server, I can't remember his name but he was tall, was very charming and professional, but from the moment he delivered my salad to the time he came back to clear my empty plate, he didn't come outside once to check on how we were doing. In the end it was fine and I still tipped him well.

Friday Fish Fry
The Friday fish fry is one of the best in the Metro Milwaukee area. Food is well prepared and plated nicely. We'll be back soon.
6/14/2013 12:00:00 AM
Always good food
I've been at North Star American Bistro-Brookfield three times and I have had very good food all three times. There are white table clothes and a quiet atmosphere. I recommend this restaurant.
6/15/2013 12:00:00 AM
This is a contemporary, sophisticated venue in the Town Center shopping area in Brookfield. The food was very good. Choices were varied. This restaurant had a very comfortable layout with a combination of booths and tables. Customers were not on top of each other. Also the restaurant was spotless. Unlike many new establishments North Star has a quiet vibe . . . Customers could actually have a conversation without shouting (soft jazz in background also) . This establishment could certainly have some live entertainment (solo guitar or piano perhaps) . Our waitress Kelsey was very attentive and nice without being intrusive. The only negative would be that they only offered one piece of bread with our meal.

Fabulous Father's Day Brunch!
I took my family here for Father's Day, and we had a great experience. They had delicious Father's Day cocktail specials including a build-your-own Bloody Mary bar for $5. If you like a Bloody Mary with all of the fixings, this is your kind of drink. The brunch menu has a really nice variety of options at reasonable prices. I had the crab cake eggs Benedict, which was delicious, and I tried a bite of my dad's eggs Benedict with the salmon and capers on potato pancakes - YUM! I would definitely go back to try some of the other brunch options!

This was my first visit to
This was my first visit to North Star American Bistro - Brookfield. Delicious food, attractive decor, excellent customer service. Who could ask for anything more? The Wait Staff was friendly, helpful, attentive, and as a bonus, had a wonderful sense of humor. Look forward to my next visit.

We have dine at North Star and have never been disappointed in our meals. Our meals are always hot which I love and never brought out cold. One of my favorite palces.

A great time had by all
The staff was friendly and helpful. It was my daughters birthday and the waitress brought her a dessert and tool the time to talk to her. May not seem like much, but it was a welcomed surprise for the birthday girl.

Happy to find amazing Sunday Brunch
Unrushed table service exceptional breakfast/brunch stlye menu. Gourmet options. Try the North Star signature "Eggs Benedict" with poached eggs,Queen-sized capers, salmon gravelox and piquant-cayenne sparked Hollandaise on the most surprising potato pancakes subtly laced with chives.
7/7/2013 12:00:00 AM
Excellent SERVICE AND FOOD. I ordered the short rib dinner and it was SO TENDER IT FELL APART, no knife needed to cut!!! The gravy it came with was OUTSTANDING. MY boyfriend had the 2 leg duck dinner and that was also EXCELLENT ALSO!!! Only complaint is it was his birthday and I had asked them to say happy birthday and bring out dessert for him and they did NOT!! Otherwise everything was GREAT. Don't think we'd go there all the time as the portion sizes are not the biggest?!! Enough to make you satisfied but not over full!! Would probably try breakfast or lunch.
7/16/2013 5:00:00 PM
I met a friend who I have not seen in quite some time. We were able to sit and talk for hours in a lovely, quiet place with delicious food and no interruptions
7/21/2013 12:00:00 AM
My husband and I went there
My husband and I went there for our 8 year anniversary and after a wonderful meal we got a dessert on the house :) The only critic I would make would be the presentation of the waitress. She was not very alert and seemed tired. Also, we had reservations but when we showed up there was no hostess and we had to wait for someone to glance in our direction to get seated. Other then that is was a good experience and we will be back because the food was scrumptious.
7/22/2013 5:00:00 PM
I took a friend here to celebrate her 60th birthday. The food was delicious, service was good and the free creme brulee was a perfect way to end the meal. It is a wonderful place for special occasions!
7/29/2013 12:00:00 AM
what a pleasant lunch
I ordered an appetizer for lunch and my husband ordered the pecan crusted chicken sandwich. We split both our lunches and it was plenty of food.
7/30/2013 12:00:00 AM
I visited North Star Bistro
I visited North Star Bistro as a party of four to celebrate a friend's birthday. We were greeted immediately and seated. The drinks, food and wait staff were all wonderful!
8/10/2013 12:00:00 AM
This was our second time at North Star for brunch. My husband and I took our two daughters there. We love it because it's a place where you can get exceptional food but also bring your kids. The ambiance and service is amazing, and brunch there is the best! We're making it our new Sunday family tradition!
8/11/2013 12:00:00 AM
This was our 2nd time having girls night there. We had the same server both times and he was fantastic!!! Food is always a hit no matter what we have and I keep coming back for the bread pudding and wine!
8/13/2013 12:00:00 AM

Staff was very friendly and really good service. The turtle cheesecake for desert was wonderful! Nice atmosphere. Nice bar. Nightly Specials were very good. Make good drinks.
9/6/2013 12:00:00 AM
A friend and I tried this restaurant. For how fancyof a restaurant it is the prices on the menu were much lower than I expected. We shared the goat cheese appetizer which was awesome. We also split the meatloaf and shared the duck pizza - all very good. I would go back.
10/2/2013 12:00:00 AM
Food was great and reasonably
Food was great and reasonably price. Will definitely go back.
10/11/2013 12:00:00 AM
we'll go back
We had a Friday, 6:15pm reservation, which was a good idea, given how busy they were. The wine and food were very good and our server was excellent. We'll definitely be going back soon!
10/11/2013 12:00:00 AM
Six friends and I enjoyed a lovely dining experience at North Star. My all-time favorite, whether it be lunch or dinner is the salmon salad! 5 star's to you for providing an excellent dining experience in the suburbs!!!
10/18/2013 12:00:00 AM
I happened across North Star American Bistro as I had to change my reservations. It is a nice, little restaurant located in Brookfield. The food was excellent. Unfortunately, one of the requested items had already sold out for the night, but the other dish ordered was just as good. For the most part, the staff did a good job although it appeared the waitress was not happy when I had to remind her of something she forgot. However, she "recovered" upon continuing service to our table. I think I may return to this restaurant despite how far it is from Milwaukee.
10/19/2013 12:00:00 AM
North Stat consistently performs well. Their menu is varied, food prep is well done, and service is very attentive.
One minor negative: One or two of our party had French fries delivered that were already cooling...
Coffee and water filled and we had not trouble getting a server if we needed anything. there were seven of us at lunch and the restaurant was quite full.
10/22/2013 12:00:00 AM
Once again the food was excellent. The perch was done to perfection, the clam chowder was very good, and the potato pancakes were very good. My Dad, who is picky about his brandy and sweet, said that it was excellent without being asked. That is a great compliment!
10/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
Thoroughly enjoyed the brunch special. My cousin loved her hash as well.
10/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
My wife and I are new to the area and North Star American Bistro was recomended by co-workers. The bar was great with an amazingly good drink menu. The food was great and the service was top notch. The only draw back from our visit was the large group that ended up being seated next to us. There were a bunch of kids and it got a little loud at times. But this is a rare thing for evening dinner service we were told, which I could see based on the few hours we were there. Overall this is a great place and we will be back many times!
11/8/2013 4:00:00 PM
My friend and I really enjoyed our evening out. The place appears very fun and trendy. The service was excellent and the entire staff was welcoming and cordial. I enjoyed my lunch at the Shorewood location with a group of friends and so I suggested this location for a dinner and a visit. My friend and I had a lot of catching up to do and so we actually were the last to leave sometime after 10:00PM. We certainly did not feel rushed to leave or hurried out. I had the Scallops with Butternut Squash Ravioli which was just delicious and a unique combination, I thought. My friend had a salad with fish on it which she enjoyed as well.

Why I frequent North Star
I meet friends for lunch here regularly. First of all, it's a great location ( off of Capitol Drive, Brookfield) but most of all we come for the
quality of food. Service is good, also. FRom time to time the noise level is above average,but since we're retired and others
are self employed we can outlast the lunch crowd.

Another great meal at NSB
Everything was excellent as usual. I would highly recommend the restaurant.
