This was out third or fourth time here for the Sunday Jazz brunch. We like it: The music is good, the food is regular American, well presented breakfast and lunch options and it's quiet and respectful. People actually listen to the music. And there are no too many people. All around a win. When the weather improves, we'll take a walk in the park.

They accepted a dinner reservation for 8:15 but apparently wanted to close by 9 and were passive-aggressively rushing us to get out by reminding us the kitchen was closing, constantly coming & going from our enclosed outside area and leaving the door open in the cold every time they left so we had to get up and close it, etc. The food was just OK and they would not entertain even basic requests to modify a menu item. The space was clean and well decorated, but that's all I can say for the place. It was a really disappointing holiday dinner for me & a friend.

Very disappointing host and seating; even with reservation, and other seating available, we were given the worst table possible, alongside swinging doors to the restrooms; Host never even stopped by to offer to change seating. House staff needs to be more attentive to wearing masks. Our server, Chaz (or Taz) most attentive and helpful; food quality, value and presentation good, as well.

North Square offers consistently great food. Glad the restaurant survived Covid.
Another plus is that the restaurant is quiet and so we can hear each other and have a conversation.

I really love the unique twists given to dishes by North Square Chef Yoel Cruz. The harvest salad with crunchy breadcrumbs sprinkled atop roasted vegetables on a bed of deliciously and delicately dressed greens--was a first to me Thanksgiving 2020. Now I see other restaurants copying this creation. I love his lamb burger with homemade pickles, his calamari with its special tangy sauce, his eggs McDougal with spinach and smoked salmon, his caesar kale salad with mini croustades serving as croutons...I could go on. Suffice to say Chef Yoel's special touch makes North Square a must for dining in the Big Apple.

Despite it being one of the coldest days of the year, a friend and I enjoyed lunch in the outdoor dining area in front of the hotel. Service was polite and attentive and our food, a roast turkey sandwich with sliced apples and cheese and a vegan curry vegetable dish were delicious. My one suggestion would be to add an omelet or frittata to the lunch options. We were too full for dessert, but enjoyed cappuccinos.

We went to North Square for the Jazz Brunch in the Lounge. The music was excellent and was a nice background for our brunch. The price fixe for brunch is $22 which include a Bloody Mary or a Mimosa and coffee or tea. Two of our group had the omlet and one had the eggs benedict with salmon and spinach. All were excellent. I look forward to returning again for the Jazz Brunch.

Had a lovely lunch with a friend at North Square's outdoor dining area. Despite being a cold day we were very comfortable as there was heating provided. Service was excellent. While the addition of an omelette to the menu would be appreciated, we found the mushroom quesadilla and the roast turkey sandwich flavorful and enjoyable. (Although the former had an unexpected kick even w/out the spicy crema on the side.) Happy to recommend the outdoor eating experience at this restaurant.

We had a wonderful experience eating outside. Restaurant was able to accommodate our party of 6. Food was excellent and prices were very reasonable; though would love to see a few more options for lunch and to have a non alcoholic beverage menu. The cranberry pecan bread for my sandwich was excellent and the chocolate cake dessert was so good; still thinking about that dessert today. 😋

Very pleasant outdoor birthday celebration! The staff was lovely, and we lingered quite a while over cappuccinos and cookies without feeling rushed in any way. The food was very good (I have eaten there several times), so no surprise. I had the lamb burger which was delicious. Overall a happy experience!

it's sad. it used to be one of our favorite places. either management or ownership changed hands - or maybe post pandemic problems - but surely not the same. we'll miss it - but we won't be going back.

North Square is a good neighborhood standby--food is always good, and always just what you would expect from a solid neighborhood joint. Nice outdoor seating tents, good service, not a destination restaurant, but one we go to often, where you can have a relaxed dinner to catch up with friends.

Outside in the cubicle gave me a nice view, a breeze and safe place to drink my cocktails and eat. Had a challenging night because my dinner companion evaporated in the night so did not show. the wait staff - my server a female and Phllipe were very accommodating and made my evening perfect. the drink was delicious as was the gazpacho and the endive salad. i love north square and always return
