Dinner for the Square – Solid place. Special striped bass was good and light, plated elegantly, and with original sides. Partner's snapper was not as good. Appetizer broccoli/leek soup delicious and kudos to the bread and olives to start. Nice cocktails and chill tunes in the background. Would return if I was in the neighborhood.
Solid Food, Fair Prices – Dinner at North Square has always been good. I'm not crazy about the name change (I liked C3), but hey, who am I to say? The food is almost always solid but creative, with few exceptions like a severely overcooked steak I had once. The wine list is also solid and fair and the dining room pleasant and not too dark.
Wonderful Food, Service and Setting – We are so grateful to two dear friends of ours that brought us to dinner one night to North Square. This lovely bistro is located in the Washington Square Hotel where chef Yoel Cruz is creating culinary magic in the kitchen.
For an appetizer we had sumptuous grilled marinated shrimps. While our dinner included a grilled aged NY shell steak that was cooked perfectly and full of flavor and a wonderful pan seared saddle of lamb with fava beans, wild
mushrooms and rosemary lamb jus. Delicious!
North Square has become one of our favorite restaurants in NYC, where we can always find elegant food at very affordable prices.
Good Eats – North Square continues its predecessor's tradition of excellent food at a surprisingly reasonable price. Great romantic date restaurant.
A hidden gem – I discovered North Square (then named C3) more than a year ago, and was immediately charmed. Since then, I've become a regular, brought my friends and out-of-town visitors who love the view over Washington Square Park. The food is creative, delicious and very well executed... The wine list is impressive, with many wines by the glass, and my favorite Belgian beer. The decor is warm and welcoming, and the service impeccable. The prices are very reasonable too! Ask to be put on their mailing list, they also organize special events like a recent mushroom dinner that was very interesting.
Stellar 'Shrooms – I went to North Square for one of their special events, Mushrooms and Bonny Doon Wines....Wow, what a fantastic experience. Not only was the food innovative and the wine delightful the overall meal was dynomite. The service was attentive and the speakers friendly and informative. I will definitely be back for other events in the future.
Good Brunch, Insufficient Service – We went to Sunday Brunch and were pleasantly surprised by a mellow atmosphere, Live Jazz, and good food for the price. The downside--there was only ONE waitress and it was stressful just watching her try to remember everything. If you can relax and aren't in a hurry, try it for brunch. My tablemate enjoyed the Breakfast Tasting which includes a little bit of everything. They also had 3 different kinds of Eggs Benedict: one with Salmon and Spinach, the Traditional kind, and a Crab Benedict.
Plus really yummy cranberry walnut bread and a good cappucino.
impressive staff – I made a reservation on-line & quickly got a call saying that the resturant was under renovation, but the kitchen was still open and was still more than welcome to come & enjoy dinner in their lounge. We got there & the staff was very friendly & accomodating, the lounge was a little small but comfy for just 2 of us, I'm really excited to go check out the new renovations.
