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 love this restaurant and it's our go-to place for a delicious dinner in a lovely and quiet environment. I had the special red snapper with wonderfully prepared vegetables and my husband thought his salmon dinner was fabulous. It's a pleasure to have a quiet conversation while dining. The service was attentive. We highly recommend this gem of a restaurant.

My sisters and I wrapped up a weekend getaway for our mother at north square with a wonderful brunch with live jazz. The food was good, service excellent and ambiance great! We will definitely return when we’re in the city. My mother is still telling her friends about the wonderful surprise brunch at North Square!

North Square is a real Greenwich Village gem. Inside, you feel transported to another time and place, away from the hustle and bustle of NYC in a semi-subterranean hideaway a few steps below sidewalk level at the northwest corner of Washington Square Park. The bar lounge, tucked away behind a door in the rear of the restaurant, is intimate and comfortable. The service is impeccable, the food is four-star, the plate presentation is artful and the vibe is relaxed. A truly special place in a special part of downtown Manhattan.

They have made some changes to their menu and the food is even more flavorful and interesting. Fresh ingredients, generous portions and lovely presentation.
Wines by the glass are excellent and they will let you taste before they pour.
Service is very attentive, friendly and knowledgeable.
Cozy ambience- has a great village feel, enhanced by a gorgeous floral arrangement in center if dining room.

We reserved in advance and were seated in the lounge, not the restaurant. A disappointment as we were entertaining out of town guests. The ambience in the lounge is very different. At 7:00 happy hour was still under way. Too lively and not the experience we wished for them. Our guests arrived first and were already seated and had their drinks and at that point trying to move would have been awkward. Service slow but friendly. Late in the evening a loud man who clearly had too much to drink overpowered the room and embarrassed us with his vulgar ranting. On speaking to management they said they’d address it but seemed reluctant as he was a regular. We skipped after dinner drinks and left. Thankfully the food was quite good.

Wonderful place. Enjoy going for the food, ambiance, and quiet atmosphere. This visit, however, I had an unpleasant experience with the highly untrained and definitely not ready for prime time hostess. Even though I had a reservation, was shuffled around and made to feel as inferior to other guests.

Hadn’t been to North Square in a few months and while the food was still quite good, the menu has changed. There were fewer appetizers and some of our old favorites are gone. We dined in the bar area and it seems like the traditional bar food menu was also minimized. I think they changed the drink glasses too, since the drinks don’t hit the brims as in the past.
It’s still a great restaurant but after 15 plus years, our old favorite has changed.

Haven't been here in a couple of years and the makeover is nice, however the lack of tablecloths isn't. Putting cutlery down on a bare table wiped with a dirty rag is not pleasant. It's unsanitary. It also adds to the noise level, as tablecloths help to soak up sound. I wouldn't mind if there was butcher block paper on top of the cloths. Bring back table cloths please!

North Square is a very nice, relatively small restaurant. It is very peaceful and pleasant. The service is truly excellent -- the members of the staff are always pleasant, courteous, and helpful. We have never been disappointed. The food is good -- the menu is unpretentious, but creative and appealing; the cooking is good; and the portions are reasonable. We particularly like to have breakfast at the restaurant -- it is terrific. Overall, I am happy to recommend North Square. It is a genuinely nice place to have a good meal.
