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.

We love North Square. It’s grown up without being boring or stuffy. It’s very comfortable and the noise level is perfect for enjoying the company of your dining companion(s). The service and food are always excellent. Overall, a wonderful place for an enjoyable meal.

Food was great but service was a bit rough. Waitress bumped my side twice. Busboy almost hit me in the head when he was removing plates.

Good for an older crowd - quiet, comfortable, traditional menu; bland decor. Earnest, friendly service. Food very nicely done though.

North Square is an old school neighborhood gem that never disappoints. Over a span of 15 years that I've been going, I've never had a less than delicious meal. Food is reasonably priced for its outstanding quality. Some familiar dishes and several more (Most recently we had Tuna Tartare, Mushroom Ravioli, Vegetable and Sausage Tangine, and Coriander Tuna; all excellent).
Ambiance: It's quiet enough for easy conversation, which is like a miracle in NYC. There's music that's truly in the background. Comfortable, not flashy, amazing flowers.
Service: Friendly, Attentive, informed.

We had a wonderful experience at North Square from the moment I walked in and the host offered to seat me even though my entire party was not there through the entire dinner. The dinner was delicious and the service was very good. All of the wait people were very attentive and friendly. The ambiance is great and the low noise level allows for conversation. I look forward to dining there again soon !

North Square has quality food, gracious service, reasonable prices and is above all “adult friendly “ meaning quiet. You can actually hear your conversations.

North Square is one of the best places for brunch in the Village. Singer Roz Corral is always excellent, and she brings in world class jazz musicians every Sunday. The Brunch Prix Fixe is a great value and is consistently delicious and satisfying. It's always a pleasure to visit North Square and I look forward to returning soon.

I often eat at North Square because the food is very good and excellent value. Unfortunately the service this visit was really not good. I believe the waiter had too many tables to be able to provide acceptable service to anyone.
I will return but if the poor level of service continues I would have to search out alternative restaurant choices.

This was a business dinner, although I come to North Square often because the food is great and it is an adult/civilized space where one can have a real conversation without the distractions of noise/music/ trendiness. On this evening, it was all that I wished it to be: quiet, great service and great food, a place to talk and enjoy an evening with colleagues after a long day.

North Square is a solid restaurant for those that want to get together with a few friends and actually hold a conversation. The place is rarely noisy and the food is tasty. They've got a decent selection of wines to choose from. Always a good choice.

A pleasant, low key place which has uncharacteristically (for Manhattan) low noise levels and dependable, agreeable offerings at surprisingly reasonable prices. Consistency matters -- they have been doing this since the late 20th Century.
