We went on a busy night, got the last open table-and were thrilled at the energetic, smiling service and perfectly prepared food. I rarely give excellent ratings but this meal was flawless! Entrees: beef, chicken, vegetarian, mixed grill, pork, duck, and 4 fish choices. Sushi grade Yellowfin appetizer served both rare and tartare. Interesting vegetable preparations with rich sauces. Everything... More

We are fortunate to live so close to this charming place.Square Cafe has fabulous staff, friendly hostesses, clean & cozy atmosphere. We often go for lunch( just the girls) or dinner with friends or a quick bite, sometimes take out. We are never disappointed and will always head back as the food is as good as the staff and wine!...

I live in the area and have eaten here maybe 20 times with small groups of friends and with large family groups, today was the former and it was a poor experience. They had taken on more large parties then they could reasonably service well and so everyone waited...and waited...and waited. Our party was 13 or 14 and around us... More

Every time I get a chance to travel to the beach house, the square cafe is an absolute must. Since the very first time I stepped in, I was charmed by its beautiful decor and its exquisite food. The duck and the sirloin are absolutely delightful. The plates are a real work of art, with perfectly balanced flavours and textures.... More

We have been to Square Cafe about once a month since they opened. Every restaurant we go to from Boston to London is compared to them, and I believe only once in all these years have we had a better dinner than at the Square Cafe. Andrea the chef is perfection in the kitchen, Patty and Mark are always welcoming,... More

My family is from Hingham and i always look forward to eating at the Square Cafe when visiting every year. Each meal I have had there has always been inventive, delicious and well presented. My experience has been consistent and always high quality and the restaurant is a real gem on the South Shore -- would highly recommend.

This is the type of restaurant that every community deserves, its nice enough for a date or an important meeting but friendly and affordable enough to come back to time after time.
