This is the first time we tried Northstar. It is a bit far afield from where we live, but well worth the trip. Lovely ambience, good service and outstanding food and drinks. So many restaurants have menus that are too long. Northstar has 6-8 apps and 6-8 entrees on the menu. Something for everyone, yet limited enough that they can do it all well. In our party, we ordered 3 different apps and 3 different entrees and all were excellent. The ambience is warm and cozy. Tables are pretty close together without being too close. This is actually nice as it adds to the warmth of the space. Service was efficient and attentive without being overdone. The only minor issue - and it was minor - is that we sat by a window that was very drafty. Not great on a frigid night, but this did not detract from the overall quality of the experience (after my wife and I switched seats!). We'll definitely be back.

This local eatery is popular with the residents of Pound Ridge. They offer a variety of cuisines and beverages, as well. The recent renovations to the outside deck with the new heaters are an added bonus for outdoor dining during the cooler weather. Live music on Thursday nights bring this spot to life.

The food is amazing, gourmet quality for a local restaurant! Great atmosphere for a cool fall evening. Service is excellent, and the owner is always right there to make sure everything is perfect! One of my favorite local restaurants! My friend drove up from Chappaqua, and loved it!

North Star in Scott's Corner has been one of our favorites since we moved to Stamford 10 years ago. The kitchen prepares great food, always fresh, and there are some wonderful dishes like an Austrian schnitzel with roasted potatoes - the best we have found across the pond so far - or a Chilean sea bass which is mouth watering!

The wine list has everything one would want and the prices are very reasonable.

Fortunately they could retain their very friendly and experienced staff during difficult times and we are happy to see that they have stayed busy - do make a reservation, if you want to come at peak times.

The bar is cozy and well stocked, sometimes they have live music at 9 PM and the interior is very charming. Scott's Corner is only 15 minutes from downtown Stamford and 8 minutes from Bedford. Try it out!

We used to love this restaurant, but when we went recently, the food was disappointing. The steak was over cooked. The Brussels sprouts tasted like they had been warmed over, and the desserts were very average. Expensive place, definitely no longer worth it.

We have been to North Star several times and are always impressed with the food and the service - we were unfortunately very disappointed with our most recent visit there. The drinks were great (as always), and we really enjoyed the baby beets salad and the iceberg wedge salad. We got the Chilean sea bass, the cod, and the lobster roll special. The bass was over-cooked, and the rice was so dry as if it sat under a heat lamp for too long. The cod was fine but a little bland. We were excited for the lobster roll but the first bite had a big piece of shell in it. Maybe it was just an off night? Nevertheless, it was disappointing especially considering the price point.

We’ve lived in the area for over 10 years and just tried North Star for the first time. What have we been missing?!?! The food was absolutely delicious and the service was wonderful. It is a simple menu but the flavors they put together were fantastic and everyone in our party of 4 was so impressed. We will be back again and again.

We had table of four and everyone had something different on the menu and were all extremely happy.
Portions could have been a tad bigger but good nonetheless. Waitstaff was also very good and ambiance was excellent.

Very nice and efficient staff, food was great.
We were visiting the area and did not have a car. When the taxi didn’t respond the owner of North Star said he would drive us back to the hotel, then he sat us down and gave us a free drink. Kindness is hard to find sometimes, but in the North Star and Pound Ridge they still have it.
Go here for dinner it’s great.
