We like this place. The food quality is very good and the prices reasonable. The ambiance is quite fine especially if you are along the wall or in the back room.

The chicken Parmesan risotto was outstanding as was the butternut squash soup. Not too fancy but quite delicious nonetheless.

Having dined here probably 10 times over the years I can honestly say every experience has been good. This restaurant has staying power.

We really like this place and dine here about every month or so. The dinners are always great. This time the family and I went for brunch on Sunday and it was a hit for all. I tasted the Eggs Benedict and the corned beef hash and liked them both. I had the Southwest Skillet and it was great.

I heard they had a great Friday fish fry and it was spot on!! The fish was delicious and they know how to make a good potato pancake (It's not thrown in a deep fryer). The fish I took home tasked great reheated and wasn't greasy at all. We all truly enjoyed our dinners and hope that you do too. Give it a try.

Our experience was great. The food was exceptional. I had an omlet on special with Swiss cheese, asparagus, tomato, and lox and hollandiase on top. It was truly delicious. The service was great and our server was very helpful at answering our questions and meeting my sisters vegan accommodations. Also, the scones were very yummy!

We had 15 people for my mother's 90th birthday on Saturday night. The staff could not have been nicer. They were all set up for us when we arrived. Even though they were busy our service was excellent. Everyone talked about how great their dinners were.

The waitstaff was very attentive, friendly, and knowledgeable about the menu. The food selections were varied and extremely tasty with reasonable sized portions. The initial bread tray, while being light on quantity, was very good. The bruschetta was somewhat different from most places and very good. And who wouldn't like banana/chocolate chip bread pudding for dessert?

Pizza was subpar and short rib was mediocre. That would have been ok if the dessert was good. The creme brûlée arrived cold - even the dish was cold. Disappointing $80 meal.

We celebrated my husband's birthday and everything was wonderful. When we first arrived the temperature in the restaurant was VERY cool and when we asked if the air could be turned down a bit they complied immediately. I love the menu because the dishes are creative without being too off the chart. We will definitely be back!

Bringing a 10 month old always adds interest..... Staff was very accomodating even after we changed number coming at the last minute. This has been a spot where I met my uncle and aunt so we picked to introduce my aunt to her great niece. Pacing was left to us (actually to the baby) and we enjoyed this time. hoping to return again.

The food is always tasty at North Star. The Brookfield location is a little difficult to find. I'm not sure why, but I prefer the Shorewood location.

NorthStar in Brookfield has consistently great food and service and that's why we keep going back several times a year since it opened. Between my wife and I we've tried most everything on the menu and not a dud among the choices. Our favorites include the short ribs, the steak au poivre, the salmon, and the scallops. And then, one of the best fish frys in the metro area.

We were seated promptly as the restaurant was quite empty. While the waitress was taking our order, the hostess came and gave her food for another table. Without a word, our waitress walked away to give the food to the table next to us and then came back to finish taking our order. We thought this quite rude. (A simple, "please excuse me" would have done wonders). I wonder why the hostess couldn't have given the table their food since she was doing nothing? Then, it happened again while our waitress was asking if we wanted dessert. She just walked away to serve the food to another table. When we questioned about this, the hostess said this is what the owners want. I get the need for quick delivery of food, but not at the expense of another table. Just rude. Food was okay tasting but the hostess left us with a sour taste.

Food was very good. My only issue was that the service was slow. We ordered another round of drinks as our meals arrived and did not get our drinks until after we had finished our meals. It was a Tuesday night and the place was not very busy so I do not understand the reason for the slow service.
