This was our 4th visit. Each time we go, we say we won’t go again. But we really want it to be good because we can walk there in about 3 minutes. Last time was when it filled with smoke but no one said anything. I had ordered a medium well burger that was underdone for my taste, but I’d have finished it except for the smoke that caused us to leave. This time, my med-well burger was charred and dry. The fries were okay for my husband, but way too salty for me, and I like salt. Apparently they are brined before being fried (too long) and then salted. So sad.

Service, which has been a problem, was very good.

The restaurant is cold and drafty. The design is poor because the heat is blowing on you.

I ordered a medium rare hamburger that was well done.

The descriptions of the food was great but the actual food was poor. I have a beyond burger and neither the role nor the bun where cooked through to a crisp. The cauliflower appetizer was also not crisps. the service was terrific. This was more fast casual.

We stopped in here for a moms night out. The waitress was good, nothing special. We only ordered apps, and nothing stood out to me. I probably would not go back.

The food is always good. The square burger is really good (added bacon and truffle aioli to it). There isn't always a full staff (especially at odd hours / early on in the day) but the food is always worth it.

Great lunch. Thoughtful preparation and presentation of “standards” like our meals—burger and grilled cheese. Hand cut fries and homemade chips excellent. Short rib mix with beef in burger made it flavorful-perfectly cooked. Nice, relaxed vibe. Our first trip and we look forward to going back.

We dined here with our 3 teenaged kids. Everyone easily found something they liked on the menu. The service was efficient and our waitress was so friendly and personable. Everything was delicious - we had the tuna app, street cauliflower, wings, Caesar salad, loco bowl, and non-meat burgers. Very enjoyable experience. We will definitely return!

Arrived with reservations, we were seated and asked if we could have one of the tables by the window. No one was in the restaurant , we were the first ones, and the hostess said we could not sit at window because they were reserved. About 1/2 hour later another couple was being seated and asked if they could sit at window and the hostess allowed it. When we left the second window table was still empty. Why were we refused? Food was good except for the burger, it was overcooked and dry.

We have been here several times and once again The Square Restaurant and Bar did not disappoint. Another fantastic meal, great atmosphere, and the service was excellent. We had the buffalo chicken dip and wings in a sweet and spicy chili sauce for apps. Both were very tasty. The sauce on the wings is the best I have ever had. For my entree I had the polo loco bowl which I have had before and it has consistently been excellent. My husband and a friend of ours had the bolognese and they both were members of the clean plate club, it was that good! My friend's wife had the sliced sirloin and she too enjoyed her meal very much. Looking forward to going back again soon. I am thrilled to have a local place to eat, drink, hang with friends, and catch a game on tv! Definitely try The Square if you haven't yet, it's worth the trip.

We had such a fun night with friends. Great food and the atmosphere was energetic and lively. The bar area was packed with people laughing, drinking and eating.
Our food was tasty and delicious. We had wings in sweet chili sauce, a salmon burger, and a regular burger. Everything was fantastic. Our server was kind and friendly. I can’t wait to go back!

Liked the menu and the food was yummy, especially the Bolognese. At first the service wasn't that fantastic but got better once the main crowd left. The chef/manager was very friendly coming to the table and chatting about the recipes. The ambiance could really use a little help, it has so much potential. At least, dim the lights a tad, a little harsh with the spot lights on full force. All in all a nice night with good food.

I want to give the restaurant 5 stars as it's in the neighborhood and I want to support a local business. I've been here about 6 times and early on I loved it. The food we ordered seemed to have gone downhill. All three of us thought either the lettuce or the dressing in the watermelon salad was bad. We did mention this to the server but it wasn't replaced. Burgers were good. Server Sara was very polite and friendly. I hope the restaurant steps up it's game a bit:)

First let me apologize for the delay in my response. I also apologize that the watermelon salad you had recently was not as it should have been. I have reviewed the dressing and the lettuce quality with the staff to ensure this doesn't happen again.

I’d heard of this restaurant since it’s opening, so called ahead for a table, to be the only diners at 6pm. Food was ordinary, avacado with Southwest quinoa so hard it couldn’t be cut, the empty tables and floors very sticky and poorly cleaned. Humidity and patrons had not affected any of four other busier restaurants we visited in the past week. Our server, however, was pleasant, helpful and prompt with friendly humor and our orders- too bad good restaurant business depends on better management of the whole house. Great location and server, but will go elsewhere next time.

Mrs. B, I appreciate the time you took to share your feedback, and I apologize for the delay in responding. I have reviewed the cleanliness policies with the staff. As the the avocados we did have some issues at that time with our supplier as to the ripeness. and staff has been advised not to serve if under ripe. If you do ever decide to give us another chance I would like the opportunity to meet you personally to ensure you have the great experience you deserve.

Food and service were great. But it was rather awkward to be seated so very close to other diners at the long wall with multiple tables. After we were seated, the tables on either side were filled right away, even though the rest of the restaurant was vacant.
I’ll come back often, but will make specific seating requests in the future.

This place has improved a lot since it first opened. The food was truly inspired and the portions were generous. Really liked the small plates (misnamed because there is a lot of food) snap pea hummus and the cauliflower. It would be to have a written list of tap beers because you can't see the chalkboard from many of the seats. The waitress was super perky and friendly.
