Went to Square 1682 for a birthday dinner after a few years away. Bottom line, the service was terrible. The food was fine and the atmosphere was fun, but we didn't wait around for desert because we simply couldn't put up with the slow and inattentive service.

This is just a bar with some tables. The food we had was OK; far from interesting. And the noise level is off the charts because, well, you're in a bar.

My husband and I were having a quick getaway and this restaurant was within walking distance. I had soup and corn bread. Corn bread was delicious, soup was average. Husband had rigatoni and it was fine. Dessert was undercook to the point it was returned and credited on our bill. All in all fine.

Liked the seating. It was comfortable and you didn’t feel crowded by others. It was private in that you had a nice buffer from others. The staff was friendly and made you feel welcome. The food was okay and overpriced. The drinks were great but overpriced. Loved the dessert and a scotch.

Good pub-like experience. Smart idea to have the $36 fixed-price menu — it is a good value. The food is good. Tables are pretty close to the bar, which makes for a lively scene, at times a bit noisy. Service is very kind, helpful but at times a bit stretched. Well worth a visit.

Everything was great. I appreciated the fact that when I had requested a table in a corner due to hearing issues they were super accommodating. Service was excellent. Our waiter was training a new server which is often annoying but in this case it was really transparent and I appreciated listening to the way the more experienced server spoke to the new person, with clarity and kindness. The food was excellent. We shared the homemade cornbread, each had a starter and then a small plate. The gnocchi was exceptional. My only criticism was the limited menu.

Great food and service, very busy and noisy on a Friday night. Nice small plates choices, really enjoyed the soup, kale salad and ravioli. A little pricey, but the super attentive waiter and staff and delicious food were worth it for a special dinner. Would definitely recommend the special drinks as well.

It had been several years since I last had lunch at this restaurant. At that time, it offered innovative dishes and an interesting selection of wines by the glass. I expected that to be unchanged given that the hotel was rebranded as a Kimpton property--a company from which I have come to expect very good restaurants. Unfortunately, I was disappointed. The offerings are those of a mid-level hotel coffee shop: simple salads, sandwiches, and just eight over priced wines by the glass. Despite the fact that the restaurant was almost empty when I came, I was placed next to a party of four. As more people came in, they were also directed to tables next to me. While that may be in the interest of the servers, it is not in the interests of the diners. I don't mind spending more than $66 for lunch, but I do expect to have more than a coffee shop experience.
