We dined (first time) at Four Square on New Year's Eve. Our meal, as well as the dining experience, was fabulous from beginning to end. We were warmly greeted by the maitre d' and seated promptly. The service was impeccable, with the servers all being attentive without hovering, knowledgeable and professional. The flavors of each course were tantalizing to the... More

The restaurant is in a 1909 home that has a marvelous dining area both inside and on a screened in porch. The food is "modern" southern. We had a great dinner. The service was outstanding. They also have a very good wine list.

One of the best restaurants in Durham. Bit old fashion atmosphere. Nice places to sit outside. Staff is very kind, great service. The chef came serving us time after time. We had a 5 course dinner. One normal and one vegetarian. It tasted good! All local ingredients. Some I never had before. A major difference between, having dinner in a... More

I had dinner at Four Square and absolutely enjoyed the food and excellent service. Our waitress was well versed on the menu and was able to carefully direct us to fantastic choices. We dined on the outdoor porch and it was amazing! If you are ever in Durham, dont miss an opportunity to experience the fine cuisine they offer.

Excellent all around - this restaurant is beautiful, has FANTASTIC service, and offers some unique and totally delicious fare. We chose Four Square for our anniversary dinner this year and even though the name of the place is strange, we were very glad we chose them as our celebration spot. For our appetizers, I got the lamb belly and my... More

It has been a long time since I have had a meal this delicious. My husband and I and our 2 teenagers are not "Foodies", but we loved it! I wish I had a copy of the menu to tell you specifically what we had, because most of the items were not just one thing. They were inventive and delicious... More
