We were looking for a place in Hingham to celebrate two birthdays and came upon the Square Cafe in a few reviews. We're a tough family to serve, due to a few dietary restrictions, but that did not deter either the waitperson nor the chef. All was handled in a highly professional manner. Even for lunch the menu was varied... More

Even though the restaurant faces a main street, you would never know it once you are inside. The decor insists on quiet conversation where good food is experienced! I had the scallops and mushroom risotto and the portion was so nice that I had to force the last few bites. The scallops were perfectly finished, large enough to cut into... More

Stopped in for lunch on a recent visit home for the holidays and the food was great, service was great no complaints. Definitely try the muscles that are in a thai inspired broth, your going to want extra bread people for the broth.

I live up the street and eat here with great regularity. A touch pricey, but very good and worth the $$. Love the atmosphere, and great intimate bar to sit at and have a meal. Lunches are equally compelling, but I generally prefer dinner. Acoustics can be loud, but that contributes to the Saturday night energy. Enjoy!!

Friends were visiting from Rhode Island and I wanted to take them to some place special for lunch. I found the Square Cafe on line, and decided to try it out. I am gluten free, which adds stress to going out. My friends really enjoyed the wine. The best part was the attention of the manager and servers who went... More

My sister and I dropped in without a reservation. The host was extremely courteous and and gave us a lovely table. It was a chilly night, but the atmosphere was not. My sister and I both decided on the scallops with risotto. It was to die for. The scallops were done just right, not overcooked and dry, nor undercooked and... More

Loved our selections every time we've dined here. But seriously? The portions are small and the prices are high. My men folk were still hungry!

I was treated very badly after the server and kitchen gave me an ingredient I specifically explained I could not eat, and which I was assured several times was not in the kitchen at all - let alone my meal. It was an uncomfortable experience, humiliating to be honest, because of the way I was treated due to their mistake.... More

My son and I walked in to this restaurant today at 12:45 a.m. for lunch. The place was busy so we sat at the bar. Finally, after approximately 12 minutes a waiter said she would be right with us. A few minutes later she placed two small plates and a set up in front of us. I asked if we... More
