I do not understand why it was almost empty.6/2/2013 12:00:00 AMMy wife and I enjoyed ourMy wife and I enjoyed our meal at North Square. I had the halibut and she had the cod (hers with the prix fixe) and we would recommend either. We also enjoyed a very reasonably priced Pinotage with our meal. While I would exactly characterize the place as quiet, we had no trouble carrying on conversation at our table without elevated voices. Overall, we found North Square to be an enjoyable place to dine.5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMReliable G. VIllage fixtureReliable G. VIllage fixture -- quiet enough to attract seniors. tasty enuf to please all. Outstandingly friendly young staff. Perfect before an NYU event.5/23/2013 12:00:00 AMLounge diningFor the first time, we were seated for dinner in the Lounge. The chairs are less vertical and the tables a bit farther from one another than in the dining room. As a result, our evening was casual, relaxed and quiet. The food, service and ambiance was equivalent to the main dining room and we would not hesitate to be seated here again for a laid-back dining experience.5/16/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food and great ambienceWould be excellent but for the closeness of tables and low ceiling which makes for louder than desirable room especially if you have neighbors who think they are in their. Private room. Food was delicious loudness was not. However it is always worthwhile.5/2/2013 12:00:00 AMLove this place, such a warm,Love this place, such a warm, welcoming ambience. Very nice experience which I will gladly repeat.4/30/2013 12:00:00 AMI cannot believe how underratedI cannot believe how underrated this restaurant is. The food is just amazing, and not over-priced (by Manhattan standards). And the wine list's got some really interesting, off the beaten track, picks. Who knew about the Grenache Gris grape? Who in the US carries wine from Jura (a little-known French wine region stuck between the better-known Burgundy and Alsace)?
I fully recommend that restaurant.4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food was nicely presentedThe food was nicely presented and delicious. The waiter was very helpful in making selections. I would return here without hesitation.4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMWe've been coming to NorthWe've been coming to North Square for years and have never been disappointed. The food is always innovative, service accommodating and ambiance lovely. The wine we had was really good and not overpriced. The management is very nice and always goes out of their way to make us feel welcome and comfortable. We were late for our reservation due to traffic and parking issues but they held our table and didn't make an issue of it. We will definitely keep coming back!!4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMMy favorite NYC restaurantMy favorite NYC restaurant -- great food and service in comfortable setting4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMTheir bruch prix fixe optionTheir bruch prix fixe option is a very good deal.

Our
friends from Houston thought the salads were top-notch and the food excellent. This restaurant is truly a neighborhood gem.4/8/2013 12:00:00 AMSaturday brunchWent there on a Saturday for brunch. Food and drinks were good. Portions were just right. Service was wonderful! Will definitely go back.4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways good!North Square is my haven in many ways - excellent food and usually exceptional service although recently the waitstaff has taken on some who don't quite get the art, if the actual execution, of waiting on a table.....it is a bit jarring given my history there. If you are looking for a great meal, good value, an atmosphere that's not too loud and usually exceptional service, I highly recommend this gem.4/1/2013 12:00:00 AMGREAT JAZZ BRUNCHI came to hear the always wonderful Roz Corral and her group for the Sunday Jazz Brunch. The food was excellent, starting with the delicious bread basket; followed by the omelette with delicious brunch potatoes and salad. I particularly love the scone they include with the brunch entrees. The atmosphere is festive and yet, there is usually a good respect by the patrons for the music. I think North Square is one of the hidden gems in NYC. I'll always come here for brunch whenever I'm in the city.3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways delicious beautifullyAlways delicious beautifully presented food, refreshing and tasty. Friendly atmosphere. One missing item is good-quality flat bottled water.3/29/2013 12:00:00 AMThis was a business dinnerThis was a business dinner connected to NYU College of Nursing and the 2 persons who were at dinner with me were also guests of the Hotel. It was a very fine place to meet and the food was excellent. Thank you.3/24/2013 12:00:00 AMWhole experience, from beginningWhole experience, from beginning to end, was hugely satisfying. Gracious, considerate service. Cozy, comfortable environment. Enjoyed their lovely bar/lounge first where we had the dryest, most spectacular and generous
vodka martinis. Then went into the dining room for a delicious meal. We had the Rack of Lamb and the Lobster with the Chopped Salad to start. All perfectly prepared, super fresh, and high quality. We were then generously given complimentary after diiner drinks. Couldn't have had a better experience!!3/22/2013 12:00:00 AMLovely!Located right on the corner of Washington Square Park, North Square is wonderful spot for Sunday Brunch. We were seated in the lounge only two tables away from the Jazz group of the day, a Jazz vocalist with a guitar and upright bass accompaniment. The service was excellent and our drinks and food came almost instantly. They were very understanding when the fourth member of our party arrived late, and did not give us a hard time. Also they did not rush us out after we had finished our food. Overall wonderful food, we all got the brunch sampler and comfortable/warm ambiance.3/17/2013 12:00:00 AMInteresting Menue; Fair pricing;Interesting Menue; Fair pricing; a wine list with variety and good pricing3/11/2013 12:00:00 AMfabulous experience - stafffabulous experience - staff very knowledgeable, sommelier made great recommendations,food great - menu wonderful - lots of choices3/9/2013 12:00:00 AMSolid, straight forward cuisineVery good wild mushroom soup - not too creamy, salty or fussy so the taste of the mushrooms is highlighted. Rack of lamb was also very good, could have been served hot, but it was just warm enough. We liked the straight forward cooking: no foam, no sweet relish, no mint jelly with savory dishes. Just very good, traditional, but not old fashioned cuisine. Many items from which to choose: tuna, steak, lamb. We were too full to try the creme brulee or apple crumble. NS will be on our list when we're in the Village.2/23/2013 12:00:00 AMGREAT BRUNCH!I had another great brunch experience at North Square. I came to hear the wonderful Roz Corral for the jazz brunch. The music, as always, was top notch and showcased some of the best players in NYC. The food was delicious, well prepared, and reasonable. I think this is one of the best hidden secrets for brunch in New York. Can't wait for my next visit!2/3/2013 12:00:00 AMCivilized cozy cornerCivilized, cozy corner with inventive, reliably delicious, well-presented cuisine and pleasant selection of wines. Service a tad slow, but ideal location before or after NYU events. Venue already enhanced by rehabbed and gloriously lit Washington Square monument -- likely even better once the park do-over is complete.1/25/2013 12:00:00 AMThe restaurant was cozy andThe restaurant was cozy and charming, and wait staff was outstanding, and the food was very good--especially the apple and cranberry dessert! We will return!1/19/2013 12:00:00 AM
