Their outdoor setup is terrific. Little houses, but airy and not claustrophobic.
The food and service were great. Mushroom soup Devine and skirt steak excellent.
A great dining experience although they did rush us a little.

Loved our private booth. Food was good. Service was kind and attentive although waiter seemed spread thin between working tables both inside and outside. A basket of bread would have been a gracious touch.

The Brunch specials are excellent and very reasonable. I had the Special with scrambled eggs, 3 Blueberry pancakes and sausage plus a cocktail. It was a bargain for $15.00!

Three of us went for brunch. I had the wild mushroom soup and a crab cake. the soup was outstanding. The others had an omelet which they found excellent. The service was very good and discreet. We were also very pleased with the spacing of the tables and everyone on staff wearing masks given that we are still dealing with COVID-19.

Food was good. My only complaint is about the bread.
Pre covid, vthere was delicious, fresh and unlimited bread free bread— with very flavorful olive oil.
Now it cost $6? and is a small basket of the bread, very thinly cut and stale— supposedly toasted but definitely stale - no olive oil
I wouldn’t mind paying foe the bread if it was fresh and ample.

Their covid safety measures are great. Hand sanitizer at the door, individual heated tents outside for single parties for outdoor dining and extremely nice polite servers who are attentive. I took points away for the food. It’s meh. Bland and nothing to write home about. I had the mushroom truffle soup (bland despite sounding yum), my friends had a lamb burger (average) and a brunch platter (bland and meh). Not sure if it’s the exact items we orders that are so blah or what. 🤷🏼

Our server, Jag, was phenomenal. He had great menu recommendations, was very attentive, and did several things to make our evening extra special. The food was delicious - I ordered the salmon and my boyfriend ordered the burger. They had complimentary Valentine’s Day deserts, but we also ordered a piece of heart-shaped red velvet cake—all of which were SO so tasty. Amazing ambiance, food and service. We will definitely be back!

Limited menu but food and soup hot and delicious. Cocktails palatable despite the plastic glasses - understandable given the outdoor dining. The dining cubes are cosy and bright but private given the ribbed Plexiglas walls and door. Staff were attentive, knowledgeable and pleasant despite having to run in and out. Always loved this neighborhood spot!

The little Art Deco rooms outside were perfect for my 90 year old aunt who wants to eat out but gets cold eating outside. We felt perfectly sAfe and warm sitting outside in our own little cabana with heater. The Thanksgiving selections were festive and appropriately autumnal. I chose a harvest salad appetizer with roasted delicata squash and a venison entree with creamy polenta and root vegetables. Both of our desserts were good to the last bite and had beautiful flaky crusts. Will return for sure!

Very limited brunch options. Food was not tasty. Egg Benedicts were served with salami because they didn’t have Canadian bacon and we were not informed about it. Very poor experience.

We went for Brunch on Sunday, October 18. One person ordered from the brunch menu and chose the omelet with french fries. The others ordered from the main menu and had two appetizers, the Shrimp Tempura Taco and the Crab Cake. Both were excellent and I would order them again. We also had a cheese burger with a salad in place of french fries. Overall, we were very please and recommend North Square for its excellent food and service.

One of my favorite places for dinner and the outdoor seating is so nice. The food is so good and the staff is so friendly and attentive. The Caesar Salad is very good and the rack of lamb was excellent. Desserts are very good as well (key lime pie is a favorite).

Excellent but dismayed to see a $6 charge for a few thin slices of toast. Better to have the old bread basket. I wouldn’t mind paying for that.

The outdoor seating was comfy enough but a little sparse. The street was also quiet enough. Service was well organized and steady. The menu was just a bit reduced from the old days, but our food was very good indeed. It's 2020, everything is a bit reduced, but we're glad at least for some good things.
