A Delightful Surprise

We found ourselves exploring Hingham around lunchtime and dropped into this cafe. There was no menu posted outside, so we really had no idea what to expect. But we took a chance and it paid off big time. I had calamari that was tossed in a citrus vinaigrette complemented with a hint of spice... read more

Food is consistently high quality. I highly recommend any tuna dish. Wait staff is great but bartenders and front of the house are moody. If you are not a regular, you feel like you are not welcome. We've eaten here several times because of the food but I would rather give my business to someone who appreciates it.

We just love The Square! Took our 91 year old active mother for Mother's Day. She loved the crab cake appetizer and chicken dinner. Plus delicious salted caramel ice cream dessert! Every item on the menu is delicious, and Andrea, chef extraordinaire, will alter any entrée at your request. The best ever appetizer is tuna done two ways. It can... More

Four of us reserved a table for dinner on a nasty rainy night in April. Our table was waiting and we were quickly seated after a friendly greeting at the door. The good looking and comfortable room was pleasantly busy. The food was for the most part quite good. Salads were excellent, as was a fish dish. Two burgers, potentially... More

The quality of the food is great, the servers are very helpful in selecting dishes that meet your tastes and wines to go with them. Only challenge can be finding parking.

I went there, on a Saturday night, looking for a good meal. But what happened to me, left me in awe and very disappointed. As I walked through the rather large curtained front entrance, I felt like I was coming on stage at Broadway, I was greeted by a gentleman. He asked me what I was doing in here?!? Seriously?...

This restaurant never disappoints. The food is always great, and the service is always warm and attentive. Vegetarians should note that if you mention that you are a vegetarian, they can make up a vegetarian meal for you even though not listed on the menu. I'd also recommend the chili seared yellow noodles (without meat) as a good vegetarian option... More

This is the kind of place you stumble upon and wish you'd discovered earlier. I found the ambiance just right for a nice dinner which I attribute to the soft lighting. The kitchen was visible through amble windows. The meals are prepared by a chef not a cook and I found the portions perfect. I'm returning!
