North Square is committed to a long-standing Greenwich Village tradition: offering generous, and genuine, hospitality. We serve dinner every day in our dining room and separate, speak-easy lounge, lunch on weekdays, brunch on Saturday, and a Jazz Brunch every Sunday in the lounge. Our approach to seasonal American food draws inspiration from both world traditions and local ingredients, some sourced from our very own rooftop garden. Wine and spirit choices span the globe, with a thoughtful emphasis on American, and especially New York, selections.

Love this place. It needs the support of the neighborhood to offset the reduced number of diners because of NYU suspending classes and people fearing the corona virus. North Square is great. Tables are not crammed together, the noise level is low so you can actual hear what other people are saying. Don’t let this wonderful neighborhood establishment fade away.

I have eaten here many times. My friend took me here for my birthday. I had taken her here for her birthday and she had loved the place. There are always excellent daily specials and the regular menu has choices of every kind of food. The service is excellent. The whole staff works very well together. The duck is outstanding.

North Square is a frequent spot for us but had not tried the jazz brunch before. Loved it! Although the space near the performers can feel a little tight, we really encountered no issues: the amps were set at a very comfortable level and the smooth jazz numbers set a great mood plus the servers easily tended to our needs. Another quality meal and lovely service!

This is a neighborhood favorite of mine. North Square has reliably good food and good service. What it lacks in ambiance, it makes up for with the warm welcome you receive when you go to dine.

We always have a great meal here. I made a reservation for February 6th, Which is still part of restaurant week. After we were seated and given menu's I asked to see the restaurant week menus and was told the the specials menus were would be used for that. When the waiter came and we asked again he replied that he replied that restaurant week was over. Restaurant week ends on February 9th

Always a reliable source for really good food.
I love to eat in their bar/lounge which has a warm feeling. The staff is always friendly and accommodating.

There were many nice surprises about dinner here... The service overall was excellent. Everyone was so pleasant and welcoming and helpful. Special orders taken willingly with a smile ,and done correctly. Extra dessert and sparkling wine was brought over for the three of us, since it was my sister's birthday. All dishes were great! Risotto, scallops and mahi mahi special. Desserts were also excellent. We were very happy we chose to dine here.

We loved North Square. An unassuming neighborhood gem! The service was impeccable and the food impressed our foodie friends. Price point can't be beat for the quality. We started with burratta and lobster/crab cakes to start followed by the chopped salad. For entrees we had the rack of lamb, papperdelle, salmon and venison special. Everything was cooked perfectly and delicious. We will be back!!

Great food and excellent service. Interesting menu. Interior looks a bit like a dinner, but that's the only flaw.

North Square is a special treasure on the NYU campus! We return to this gem again and again for lunch and for dinners with special friends. We always request and get one of the booths just outside the doors to the restrooms; this seems to be a quieter area of the restaurant. Food is excellent! Service is always excellent! Bravo to North Square!

North Square is my favorite restaurant in NYC and my friends and I have enjoyed Sunday brunch there for years--it so wonderfully civilized and comfortable, and until recently, reliably delicious.

But we want the owners to know--the weekend brunch menu has gone to hell. BRING BACk THE SHRIMP TEMPURA SANDWICH AND THE VEGGIE BURGER.

The wait staff tell us many diners are unhappy...but the chef won't listen. Our mediocre chicken sandwich "specials" today were tolerable only because the staff kindly comped us, recognizing us as usually very happy regulars.

Nice cozy atmosphere. Good conversation volume. Service was very attentive. Calamari was delicious - plenty of tentacles (hate it when it's only rings...). Salmon, arctic char, tagine with chicken. All delicious and good portion sizes. Nice flavors.

North Square is quality Village dining option with tasty food and good service. It's fits the definition of a neighborhood gem. Older clientele means that the noise level allows for conversation without shouting, an increasingly rare privilege.

Antonio was our waiter and he was a big help in suggesting an entree that I could enjoy. The quail was great.

One question: why is Resy sending a survey for This restaurant first when I booked through Open Table?
