Excellent value, great location, nice service, great vegetarian choices
Excellent. Very interesting, varied, and delicious menu. Wait staff is very attentive and friendly. Atmosphere relaxing and good for quiet conversation. All in all, a wonderful dining experience.
Always a terrific meal
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.
First time experience. Will definitely return. Tried the tuna... very good. Others in the party tried the rack of lamb and the salmon. All excellent.
Amazing jazz brunch! Wonderful ambiance and singer.
Usually moderate noise, but 9:30 at the bar on a Saturday night very noisy. Two tables kept the other diners in shouting mode. However, we are regulars and need only adjust or dining schedule. Will return.
This is a hidden gem.
Food is creatively served
Wait staff is accommodating
Sunday brunch at North Square was excellent. The service is warm and hospitable and staff aim to please. Seating is comfortable and you can actually have a quiet conversation with others. All in all— an A+.
Excellent food and wonderful jazz music
Excellent service, top notch wine and delicious meal. A favorite spot.
A special place. Wonderful food. A lovely set of rooms. Old Greenwich Village charm..
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.
The food has always been well prepared -- sometimes outstanding.
Atmosphere modest and elegant. Noise level (fabulous) low.
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.
Always a pleasure.
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.
North Square always delivers. The food, wine, and service are consistently great, and the ambience is relaxed; not too noisy--a great place to catch up with friends and have actual conversations without having to scream at each other.
The food is lovely, as it always has been. Presentation adds to the flavors.
We enjoyed the time we talking there , and the food are very good
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!
This is a perfect restaurant to choose if you are looking for good food and an opportunity to have a conversation without too much noise. A restaurant for grown ups.
North Square never disappoints. Food always terrific; service pleasant; lovely room.
Always look forward to dining here and do so every time we attend a lecture, book talk or other event at NYU. Atmosphere is always pleasant and the food great tasting and well presented. Also has some of our favorite wines. This is our preferred Village restaurant.
Quiet grown up place with good service and reasonable prices. I like the dining room especially for brunch, and the bar for a later night snack.
We love it here- happy hour, jazz brunch or a quiet dinner never disappoint.
one of the most depressing ambiances
sort of looked like the dining room of an old age home. the waiters seemed depressed too
food was alright but overpriced
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.
Wonderful restaurant in the Village. The food was delicious and expertly prepared. The atmosphere was really nice. We sat in the lounge area and it was just as nice as the main dining room. We had the carrot appetizer which was interesting and delicious, as well as the burrata, which was great. My husband had the chicken, which he really enjoyed, my son had the duck, that he said was excellent, and I had the salmon, which was great. The highlight was the pumpkin creme brulee. Absolutely scrumptious. We'll definitely be back.
Love it there. I think it is the last sane and sophisticated and great staff. They are professional helpful and friendy.
Pease keep it that way. See ya soon.
Still one of my favorite Greenwich Village restaurants. Delicious, reasonable food. Comfortable and attractive, with ample room between tables. Good service, very good bread, waiters most accommodating.
Was fine. Service was nice and friendly. Inexpensive for NYC. Louder than I hoped for. Overall, nice experience.
Always enjoy returning to North Square, and introducing friends to it. The food is consistently good and creative, the ambience is warm and embracing, conducive to conversation, and the staff aims to please - and they do! Excellent spot for an enjoyable dinner with friends...and don't forget to visit the wonderful cocktail lounge in the rear. The mural above the bar is in itself a reason to visit, as is the friendly and knowledgeable bar tender.
if you are into having a quiet sunday brunch with live jazz in a classy intimate setting this is for you!
food is good, music great.
The chef at North Square, whether he/she is providing breakfast, brunch, or dinner, is absolutely superb. The food is presented beautifully, is creative in its approach, and is delicious. Service is excellent , and the quiet ambiance is a nice departure from some of the venues with intrusive noise levels.
North Square is a perfect little gem of a restaurant. Food, service, ambience are all just right.
I have not been to North Square in a long time but it is not as good as I remembered. It is still a nice place to sit and the service is not rushed. The food was ok but uninspired.
Reliable place for quiet good meal in comfortable pleasant space. I keep returning.
