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.

Restaurant's decor is a bit dated. We were worried when we were given ripped/wrinkled menus and tables had chipped wood . But... Service and food were very good!! Everyone thoroughly enjoyed their dinners. And wait staff was very attentive but not in your face.

Service was extremely slow this time. Food was adequately prepared. Salad was very good.
Restaurant is a little dark, as it is down a few steps.
We ordered coffee at the end of dinner. It took a very, very long time to get to us.

We are regulars at North Square and have been for at least 10 years. The food is ALWAYS good: well-prepared and tasty. We've tried almost everything on the menu and are always pleased with the kitchen's reliability. Service is friendly and the sound level is thrillingly low. (Although if you choose to eat in the bar area, it will naturally be noisier.) There's a good wine by the glass list.

Kitchen failed to serve one of the client’s meal on time. He had to eat after the rest of the party was half way done. Service was clumsy and detached. A real pity because the s has been a favorite restaurant of mine for many years.

After two bad experiences, I wrote a review here and asked North Square to contact me for details. And they did! Priscilla called me and was fantastic. She listened and apologized and promised my next visit would be better - and free of charge! She did not disappoint! She and our waiter could not have been more generous and professional. The only reason I’m not assigning a top score is because it took three tries to get the kale salad the way I’d ordered it - no cheese and no onions :) But the waiter apologized over and over and over, so it didn’t affect our overall experience, which was terrific. Can’t wait to go back, very soon! Thanks, North Square!

This is a favorite neighborhood place. Low key.
Very good food and service and great value for the money. I love the olives and bread that they bring to the table.
I look forward to my next visit.

We had modified our reservation to six people from four on Open Table.
While this had not been communicated to The restaurant the day before our scheduled jazz brunch, the restaurant did everything to accommodate us.
The jazz brunch special menu was an excellent buy, service outstanding and the best coffee around!

The red roses set the mood and dining in the lounge was a good idea where it’s quiet.
Everything went very well. All appreciated their dinners. We are neighbors and keep coming back.

HUGE disappointment, and I’ve been wondering what to do. This was my third time since January 7, and I have another jazz brunch reservation for March 4. The first time was terrific in every way. The second time was ok with some problems. There were so many things wrong this past Sunday it’s too much to write here. It was just awful. I questioned one thing at the end, but got such a rude response I let it go. But now... What to do? I don’t want to abandon North Square. I hope someone from the restaurant management will reach out to me to make this better.

This restaurant provides a lovely array of food well prepared with lots of choices at a reasonable price for a good meal. The staff is lovely and accommodating, and the wine selection is good and reasonably priced. I recommend this for a special meal, or one where you want to spend a bunch of time talking to the person you came with.

Wonderful neighborhood gem, one of our "go-to" choices. It's a an increasingly rare pleasure to be able to carry on a conversation in a Manhattan restaurant without shouting. The lounge area is an attractive alternative to the main dining room. The sausage platter starter and lamb sliders are terrific and there is a nice selection of beers and wines by the glass.

This was one of the few places in MN that took a reservation for 10 people, and we were seated without our entire party, which is almost unheard of. Service was great. Food is fairly good. The pancakes, omelets, veggie burgers and desserts are yummy.

We currently live in Chelsea BUT lived on Waverly Place for many years and never ate at NorthSquare. Go figure... This is a lovely quaint restaurant. We ate in the main section but there is also bar seating option, which offers tables in this area, you can choose when you book your reservation on OT. Both spaces have a very nice ambience. Food was nicely prepared. I had the pistachio crusted salmon and my wife had the chicken. NS was very accommodating as she is gluten and dairy free. The server was knowledgeable about the food preparation so that was extremely helpful to her decision making. We will return...

It’s always a pleasure to have dinner at North Square. The sausage appetizer was particularly delicious. It’s refreshing to eat at a restaurant that you don’t have to scream to be heard across the table. I’m looking forward to returning soon.
