Wonderful jazz brunch and excellent service. The trio was terrific.
Great jazz brunch but it would be nice if more than two options were available for the omelette.
Sophisticated flavors, perfectly cooked roast duck with succulent kombucha, attentive service
One if the worst places I’ve been, service extremely slow, unattentive and incompetent staff
Felt like a diner not a restaurant
Our guests raved about the quality of the food, the presentation and the service.
We had a wonderful experience eating outside. Restaurant was able to accommodate our party of 6. Food was excellent and prices were very reasonable; though would love to see a few more options for lunch and to have a non alcoholic beverage menu. The cranberry pecan bread for my sandwich was excellent and the chocolate cake dessert was so good; still thinking about that dessert today. 😋
The service was lovely and the food terrific.
Very pleasant outdoor birthday celebration! The staff was lovely, and we lingered quite a while over cappuccinos and cookies without feeling rushed in any way. The food was very good (I have eaten there several times), so no surprise. I had the lamb burger which was delicious. Overall a happy experience!
it's sad. it used to be one of our favorite places. either management or ownership changed hands - or maybe post pandemic problems - but surely not the same. we'll miss it - but we won't be going back.
North Square is a good neighborhood standby--food is always good, and always just what you would expect from a solid neighborhood joint. Nice outdoor seating tents, good service, not a destination restaurant, but one we go to often, where you can have a relaxed dinner to catch up with friends.
One of our West Village favorites! Great indoor and outdoor seating.
Outside in the cubicle gave me a nice view, a breeze and safe place to drink my cocktails and eat. Had a challenging night because my dinner companion evaporated in the night so did not show. the wait staff - my server a female and Phllipe were very accommodating and made my evening perfect. the drink was delicious as was the gazpacho and the endive salad. i love north square and always return
Just a delightful gourmet experience. Always wonderful. Brought some sophisticated out-of-towners and they loved it. I knew they would.
I was charmed by this restaurant and the Washington Square Hotel. Not luxurious by any standard, but clean and very charming. I very much enjoyed the meal and was able to find a wonderful grain bowl on the menu as well as a delicious Sidecar cocktail. The acoustics, alas, are not good. I could hear other people's conversations. I was glad it was a quiet night until two women came in. Then not so quiet. I liked the oldies music and it was not too loud. I would
This is a neighborhood gem -- indoors has a European vibe, outdoors, a choice of more and less protected tables. Service is excellent and responsive and food very good. It's also a little off the beaten path, so quieter than other neighborhood places.
There were a ton of bugs and mosquitos due to, I think, the plants surrounding the tables. Food was OK. They didn’t have certain beers on the menu. Service was slow.
Great food and atmosphere! Will definitely eat here again.
Food was very good, as always. Have dined here several times. But, perhaps due to Covid?, the place felt eerily strange and the staff seemed confused and robotic. Had the odd sensation that I was caught in a parallel and quite diminished universe.
Nice food, good service, and attractive outdoor setting.
This is a wonderful neighborhood restaurant attached to the Washington Square Hotel and the guests there are very lucky! Indoors the tables are set in consideration of pandemic rules and the decor is very pleasant. Outdoors there are private "booths" and "rooms" which are airy and comfy. The food and service is excellent. Don't miss this place if you are a visitor to NYC and be grateful if you are a neighbor to this long appreciated establishment!
North Square was listed as opening at 12 noon, but nobody took our orders until 12:30. The restaurant was supposed to be on Restaurant Week (from July 19 to Aug. 20, but we were told that it was only on for two weeks and that time was over. Our service was exceedingly slow, and we had to ask the servers to speed it up several times. The halibut we both ordered was a decent piece of fish but it had no sauce and was very dry on the palate. It was accompanied by a puny disc of some grain with a couple of peas thrown in.
A poor meal indeed at a price that was over valued. Never again will I make the mistake of eating there.
The salad was skimpy. It was like a side dish. The endive salad is usually my favorite and I was very disappointed this time. I had maybe 2-3 tiny pieces of blue cheese. Even my bowl was tiny. We had to pay for bread too. I've been going to this restaurant for years and always enjoyed the food.
As always, the meal is impeccably prepared and the service is delightful. The interior environs were redone with extremely attractive and inviting results. It has consistently served as one of the best dining spots in the city.
Even though the pandemic must have wreaked havoc with their staffing and menus, a recent visit reminded me of everything I like about this restaurant. The food is consistently delicious. The room is attractive. The staff is welcoming and efficient. And, the noise level is so low that you can actually sit and have a conversation, which is why I try to eat here as often as possible. Dessert was particularly good this time--an exceptional chocolate mousse thing.
Amazing food and service!
So nice to see the restaurant's food is as delicious as ever. It is one if my favorite restaurants on NYC. So glad they made thru thepandemic.
Awful customer service. I made the reservation a week in advance. Returned a voice mail restaurant left on my voice mail a few hours before reservation & told them I would try to arrive early for my 9:30 reservation because it was last seating . I did a walking tour of the west village that ended at 9 & literally ran the 5 blocks in the rain to make it for 9:15. I passed 30 beautiful eateries on my way to north square but I wanted to keep my reservation . Upon arrival I was asked to seat in the lounge ., which I said yes. When being shown to a table a very nasty women approached us and declared the kitchen was closed & had been since 9. I asked why did you accept a 9:30 reservation & then confirm it a few hours ago ….I got silence. It almost ruined a very nice date night. As it was very dirty I chalked it up
To being for the best. I ate at 8th street wine cellar which was perfect .
Party of 5 Reservation
Asked the server to ask the chef about some allergy requirements. He came back with a very short list of what was safe. We ordered, asked for specific accommodations. We got sick. Very sick. Before the end of the meal. The server hid from us and sent someone else to address the concern.
Always a great meal here.
Perfect location in the West Village. Good food presentation and taste. Servers are friendly. Great indoor and outdoor space.
Very low key and very “New York”. Steak was amazing.
Everything was delicious! We were here Sunday and we had our own little booth . Each booth had a fan hung on the top wall so it was very comfortable being outdoor. I had the coriander crusted salmon and my husband had the grilled sirloin burger. They were perfectly cooked . We shared a coconut flan and that was amazing! Service was outstanding! I would definitely come back here again !
Sat inside as compared to my res outside. Quiet and wonderful. My burger was too rare (as per my instructions) and they cooked it to perfection-no questions asked!
Good staff, great location. But the food was pedestrian. Would have been disappointing as room service.
This restaurant has always been dependable with friendly atmosphere and good cuisine.
Lovely Greenwich Village restaurant across from Washington Square Park with good food and nice atmosphere.
Good food and service in a pleasant setting
Very safe outdoor seating, service very good and food good
We went for dinner at 8:45 PM on a Tuesday night, party of four. First, we were brought outside to a super bright booth that only fits two. We declined that and asked to eat outside at a proper sized booth on the Waverly Place side - only to be told it was closed, despite otherwise occupied booths. Then, they brought us inside, past an empty main dining room, to a booth next to the restrooms and waiters station. We decided not to walk out - but did ask to turn down the lighting, which we did.
I was so embarrassed to get the bums rush here - we have been going there for years - maybe they don’t like four guys eating there. This restaurant has really deteriorated, we will only try it again one more time. There are now many choices ......
