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.

We usually enjoy North Square but this was the first time we went for a special occasion prix fixe. The food was outstanding! The ambience was delightful and we look forward to coming again.

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.

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.

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!

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.
