Food was in a word fabulous
Food was in a word fabulous - started with a beet salad with gargonzola like cheese - delicate with a mixture of flavors. Next poached sole - wonderful presentation and just about the best fish I've ever had. Lastly, a creme brulee to die for. My wife was equally satisfied with her dishes - only problem she kept "poaching" from my main course!
Service was friendly, young and energetic.

Looks like a neighborhood
Looks like a neighborhood bar, expecting traditional wings and nachos, but get great food with terrific service. The menu is full of fresh vegetable and fish choices....each item better than the next. The prices are high, but the food is worth it. And management (owners) are laid back but attentive, always making sure you feel comfortable and well taken care of. Highly recommend.

Our favorite restaurant
Ambiance, warm welcome, excellent food, both fish and meat, warm caring service, clean, good wines, great bar, love the salads, active but not noisy, especially loved the halibut the other night, also the wedge salad and the triple chocolate at the end. We keep going back as their specials are varied and change. Music one night a week, etc

great outdoor dining
with a 6-month old as part of our table, having dinner outdoors was adlight- both for us and the rest of the diners.
food and service were very good and definitely worth a repeat. And the let us bring our own wine.

Special Neighborhood retreat
North Star provides a wonderful local escape for fine food enjoyment. We love the sea bass on the porch and always look forward to our next visit.

evertime I go , appreciate it more.
We have been trying out a few of our local restaurants this summer and have really come to apprecaite NorthStar. The food is EXCELLENT. Staff is great. Downside is that it is small, depending on the table you can feel a bit cramped. The other thing is that about $100 a head minimum with tax and tip is getting up there for a neighborhood restaurant , but you are getting food every bit as good as Bedford Post or a NYC restaurant.

An excellent choice for informal
An excellent choice for informal dining with a variety of menu choices, ability to combine appetizers, small dishes and main dishes into a meal that fits the size of your appetite. Soft shell crabs are in season, and they are breaded just lightly enough to add to the taste, and come with a wonderful vegetable medley. The chocolate bread pudding is worth the few extra calories to finish the dinner.

North Star ambience
North Star has a rustic and romantic ambience with delicious food and a personable staff. We had a really enjoyable and upscale dinner surrounded by details that made our experience really lovely. Perfect for people looking for a serene dining experience on a summer weekend night. I hear Thursday nights bring bands and a singles crowd that is popular as well.

So Glad it's Here
Great food and wine! For a place in the country it has a relaxed yet sophisticated feel. It can get crowded so a reservation is a good idea. The bar is on the small side and although the decor is quite nice they lose a star for the TV hanging in the corner!

Romantic and casual date night
My husband and I like to go here for casual and romantic date nights. The food is all organic and fresh. We've been here twice so far and really enjoy it.

Great food, understated style
Though the ambiance is a little casual (there's a TV behind the bar), the food and service made up for any concerns about too casual a dinign place. All the way from starter to dessert, the qualities of the cook came through loud and clear. By the time we left the restaurant, we were even pleased with the unpretentious style of the place. It's not cheap, but the quality of the food justified the price.
Woudl you take your sweetheart here for a romantic tete-a-tete? Not sure. Lack of tabel linen makes this more feel like a pub/family place than a chique restaurant. But for real food lovers, this place is worth the detour. So if your sweetheart is into good food, I would suggest this place. It will make for a nice surprise!

consistently good food and service
We live close by and when we have guests in town we always take them here for dinner. i have a hard time deciding what to get because it all sounds so good and I know it will be tasty. The fresh soups are to die for. I love this place.

dining at North Star Restaurant
This was my first experience with this lovely little restaurant in downtown Pound Ridge. Very pretty--nice outdoor dining area on the front porch. The food was excellent, very nicely presented. Our server was terrific and so was the owner who was very visible throughout the evening. Would recommend it for anyone who wants good food, great service and a cozy neighborhood atmosphere. Will definitely revisit.

Great casual restaurant! Small but still private, nobody sitting too close together. Excellent steak, delicious salad, service very friendly, nice for a casual wind down Friday night dinner. We will definitely be back again.

The food was excellent and paired with the wine and ambiance, made for a wonderful experience. The tuna tartare is a must-have. The organic chicken is a signature dish. My husband had the turkey meatloaf which was juicy, tasty, and perfectly cooked.
