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.

We ended up seated in the bar room, which was quite noisy. It might have been better in the front dining room. The food was wonderful.

We were a table of 6 with a couple of dinners with food allergies. Our waiter was very knowledgeable and accommodating. Our table especially appreciated the vegan muffins!! Good selection for brunch.

We went for an early dinner on New Years Eve. We have gone there several years in a row. The food is always excellent and the ambiance is just right - casual, festive but not overly noisy. A good choice.

We went for the Jazz Brunch in the Lounge. The fixed price brunch ($20) is an outstanding value and the music is usually very good. Reservations are required as the space is small and usually sells out for the first seating at 12:30. It is a favorite place of mine and the jazz is wonderful.

Here's a restaurant where you can count on eating well and holding a conversation.
Whether you choose the three course special or a la carte you'll get beautifully presented
well prepared foods like the chopped salad, shrimp soup and in-market fish.
Rack of lamb and pan seared sea scallops were two good choices for us.

Lovely restaurant in Greenwich Village alongside Washington Sq Park. The lounge, where we never sat before, was very nice and in fact we might request that room in the future. Preparation of the fish dishes was excellent as were the desserts. Service, although the restaurant was busy, was attentive.

We have been to this restaurant many times before a show at NYU. Perfectly fine but a shame they now use Resy for their reservation system. Resy is an absolute disaster.

A group of friends get together for brunch here twice a year—we like the convenient location (is just down the block from large subway station), the warm ambiance of the space (especially pretty for the December holiday brunch, as the restaurant is nicely decorated), and the very reasonable prices (for Manhattan).

great food, neighborhood gem but no ambiance. The dining room could use an update, but then the prices would probably go up. My friend lives 2 blocks away and we couldn't believe we'd never been. It's a great place to go for food that is reasonably prices with really nice servers, and have a conversation with your friends. definitely recommend

Thanksgiving dinner was both lively and delicious. The quail appetizer was excellently tender and juicy, the scallops perfect as well. North Square doesn’t disappoint. Michael greeted us at the door like long lost relatives and we were delighted to have been recognized. This place deserves to stay around!

We reserved and specifically asked for the Jazz seating and we were happy with our experience. The meal was quite good and the cost was very reasonable at $20 Price fix for brunch. It included a mimosa and coffee or tea. $20 brunch and live jazz, can't beat that!

Once again, North Square provided a wonderful setting for a get-together with friends. The food was excellent, the ambiance also -- music muted in the background -- and the service was very good. North Square is a restaurant in which you can actually talk without screaming to be heard over the music and the noise of a crowd. I would recommend North Square to anyone who wants a really good meal, at a reasonable price, in a restaurant for grownups.

The perfect place for a good meal in a quiet setting. I ordered the tagine - which was more like a curry than tagine, but it was very good. The service was quick and the staff was kind. I would return.

This was a return visit for several friends who gathered from all over the world (Europe, Japan, Canada and US). We had gathered at North Square 3 years ago, and wanted to celebrate together again. The Maitre D, Michael, was so helpful and accommodating when we needed to add more seats to my reservation. Dinner was delicious. Thanks for the great memories again.

This is a lovely restaurant right across the street from Washington Square Park and this was my second time dining there. I enjoyed the freshness and imaginative quaity of the food and the service could not have been better. I had salmon encrusted with pumpkin seed and a crab and roasted corn salad to start. Both of the dishes were excellent. The room is very upscale and calm with a terrific cozy lounge area in the back. A wonderful neighborhood place to eat next time you are in the Village.

Great find! Took my mom and friends for her birthday. Varied, delicious menu. Attentive service. Very private-feeling tables with lots of space around them so you can actually hold a conversation over dinner. The burger is fantastic. Would recommended to anyone not looking for "a scene," just a really nice meal out. We'll be back.
