We were taken here by our clients on a recent business trip and to be honest I would have kicked up a bit of a stink if I didn't have to be on my best behaviour. A dozen of us were seated in a featureless back room with just one server, who tried hard to cope but struggled, especially with... More

I went here on a business trip with 20 or so colleagues. Our two servers handled our food and drinks quite well. There was a pre-arrangement for limited entrée options for our group, but we still had plenty of choices. I was amazed at the consistent quality and presentation of all the plates! My salmon on a bed of sautéed... More

Friendly professional comfortable. Both salads presented well and were tasty. Both entrees prepared extremely well. Server forgot us toward the end, didn't check in with us for more than 15 minutes, so no offer of another drink and thus, too much down time to change our minds about ordering dessert and coffee. We will visit again.

We had lunch on a recent weekday with another couple at the Brookfield location. None of us had been to North Star before, but we did receive a recommendation from friends. The restaurant has quite an appealing décor. It looks formal, yet feels very comfortable and relaxing. Our wait person was excellent, providing advice pertaining to the menu and ensuring... More

North Star American Bistro has become a go-to favorite for us since moving to Brookfield almost two years ago. We have found the food to be consistently excellent and the servers friendly and knowledgeable. We have been there in a variety of configurations: as a couple, in a group of seven, and with another couple. Each visit was enjoyable. The... More

I like North Star American Bistro in Brookfield. I live withiin walking distance. I enjoy eating in the bar area. On several occasions the bar and waitstaff are so busy talking amongst themselves that it was hard to get anyones attention. On an occasion several months ago I was waiting at the hostess desk to ask about a table and... More

All of the parts add up to a perfect evening; at the Shorewood location there is a dining room for families, so mom and dad can have a more enjoyable meal, the drink menu is extensive, the food is amazing, and the staff most welcoming. Everyone will love it! And they appreciated that we were there for our anniversary.

No complaints at all for this east side gem. Wonderful drinks, a menu ranging from burgers and pizza to unique entrees. Have eaten several times and never disappointed. Sometimes there's a wait, but well worth it!

We were initially told it would be at least an hour wait for a table. Then the kind hostess asked if we wouldn’t mind sitting at a “high table” in the bar area. We agreed and were sat immediately. A very nice drink selection for both wines and beer was waiting on our table. Our drink orders were placed quickly... More
