Ok. This is not a good time to eat out - with covid and everything. Unfortunately for the restaurant we were one of only three tables that night. We were seated far away from others and I felt very comfortable.

Our wait person was friendly and helpful. We started with the eggplant zucchini appetizer which comes with three different dips. Many places off this type of appetizer but I was impressed at the crunchy sticks in light batter that was very tasty. Not greasy at all.

I had the chicken risotto which was wonderful. The chicken has a lot of flavor and the risotto was creamy and blended with some sautéed mushrooms.

Nothing fancy but good, flavorful dishes. All in all a very enjoyable experience.

Verdict: good service great food nice time. I highly recommend this restaurant.

Always a great time, good menu selection and nice specials. I had my go-to Crab Cakes Benedict as I was there for brunch and loved it. Coffee is good and refilled. Be sure to request condiments - they do not automatically include i.e. ketchup for fried potatoes. Scones are also provided...hit and miss but no charge!

First time we visited North Star American Bistro in Brookfield. Service and food was excellent. It was disappointing there were so few people there. Such a good restaurant should be packed.

We go there often and the food is always good. This time my fish was not hot like it usually is but still good. Great server though! I guess with COVID my expectations are not as high. They did a great job with social distancing and will certainly go back. I miss the crowded dining room, it’s a great local restaurant.

We had a very nice dining experience! I had the salmon which was very good and my husband had the strip steak. Also has the eggplant/zucchini appetizer which we both enjoyed. Had a brandy old fashioned that was also good. Our waiter, Joaquin, gave us really excellent service. We were served a complimentary flourless chocolate cake as we were celebrating our anniversary. Look forward to going back soon as other menu items looked good too.

Good selection from main entrees to sandwiches/burgers to a Friday Fish Fry. Only disappointment was that they ran out of the Perch Fishfry. Friendly staff and a nice place.

This is the second time I have visited North Star with a friend In the past few weeks and the food is always delicious. I loved the scallops salad and my friend loved the scallops squash special if the day. My favorite is the salmon salad so that is hard to pass up. Great service and great food!

One of my favorite restaurants!
I had the special, 'Braised Lamb Shank' on Risotto, with a red wine reduction.
It was excellent.

Great variety of food from casual sandwiches and burgers to steak. I absolutely enjoyed my bacon wrapped meatloaf and my husband had any awesome steak. Great wine selections finished with a delicious elegant farmer cherry cobbler. We always have great meals and there is always enough variety to please all. Highly recommend!

We waited at the front door for almost 10 minutes despite several employees walking past us many times. We waiting almost 10 minutes for a waitress to come to the table. Out food arrived in a timely manner yet the chicken was hard, dry and did not taste. For a $100 bill it was mediocre at best.

Our first time at this restaurant. Food was very good and an excellent value. The service was a bit spotty but not bad. The menu variety was very good and the preparation was top notch.

It would be good for them to have a hard liquor list.

We'll be back

Was able to reserve two tables outside for my parents’ wedding anniversary that allowed us to maintain social distance while still enjoying good food and each other’s company. Service was fantastic as was the food. Nice night out during the Covid era!
