About North Square

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.

This was my first time back for dinner in years to an old favorite. The food was wonderful-creative and not too heavy, service was attentive without hovering, staff were welcoming and friendly. I appreciated the comfortable banquette seating and the possibility of having quiet, private conversation. We were there a long time and only ordered an entree (not even alcohol), but the staff treated us like valued customers they'd like to have back. I'll be returning soon!

Service was very poor. We were made to feel like out of town rubes. We had an early reservation. When we arrived, although the dining room was empty, we were taken to the worst table in the room, right next to the front entrance and the till. I assume it was because it was evident from our accents that we were not locals. When we asked for a different table, we were told all the other tables were reserved for their regular patrons. After refusing the offered table, in the completely empty room, we were grudgingly given the next table to it. the food was indifferent, and we have enjoyed much better for less cost, in central Manhattan.

Wonderful experience. I wanted a good meal with modest noise level so I could enjoy my conversation with old friends. North square was perfect for that. Food was excellent. The server was knowledgeable about all aspects of the menu, from wine to food to describing in detail all the teas available.

North Square is an old favorite on Washington Square Park near NYU. The food is truly first rate - better than what you expect from what is really a neighborhood restaurant not a destination. Service is good. The ambience is cosy. There is a nice bar in the back. They can accommodate larger groups but the place is really for twos and fours. I will be back!

We celebrated my niece's birthday, and the staff was aware of this, and catered to her. As a result, we had a special after-dinner drink and a candle on our shared dessert. Very friendly staff from the moment we walked in. Looking forward to going back!

With consistently good food, ambiance, service, North Square is a great go to place for most occasions or just everyday dining. I've attended many private parties in the back room which have also been excellent.

This meal was good however the fish was somewhat undercooked in a way that made it very unappetizing. Overall the meal was not as good as usual, typically it is excellent . The location where we were seated, between other tables made it difficult to hear and have a conversation when the restaurant was somewhat full.

I love the burgers here, love the crabmeat and pear salad. This time I tried an omelette. The roasted red peppers and chorizo inside were delicious. The eggs were just slightly overdone, to my taste. Love the french fries, always.

We eat there often. Great menu that has daily special 3 course set price meals that can be ordered a la carts as well. Range of options for a full meal or just a bowl of excellent soup ( wild musroom which I had this visit) which changes often and a selection of tasty creative salads. Olives, pickles, and good bread comes with meal. Excellent choice of wines. Great desserts. We alway leave satisfied.

Having a meal in this well designed, lovely restaurant just off Washington Square Park in the heart of the Village (in the Washington Square Hotel) was an entirely pleasant experience - a place where you feel welcome, comfortable and can actually hear what people at your table are saying. A quite nice menu too.
