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!

Enjoyed our dinner tonight before walking up the street to see a movie. Our group had duck, veal and yellow fin tuna - 3 very different items but each plated nicely, yummy, generous portions. Also recommend calamari appetizer. We had 2 desserts - bread pudding and carrot cake - sweet and warm but we were too full to properly evaluate... More

This is a neighborhood gem worth driving to. The food is creative and delicious. From the warm atmosphere, attentive server, yummy bread and oil dip, to the fine caesar salad, to the entrees the night was satisfying. I recommend the duck; succulent with great veggies and sauce. My stuffed pork chop was fine according to my wife, and abundant. Only... More

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!!
