The restaurant itself is nice. Good food - the blackened tuna was well executed and the risotto was very good. Service was ok but not great. What hurts this place is the location. It sits in a strip soon-to-be power center or so it seems. So it is a space that could be a quick service place or... read more

Had lunch here with a colleague from work. We decided to sit at the bar, the service was outstanding. We ordered a Cesar salad and a steak sandwich, both dishes were prepared to perfection. Overall good meal, the atmosphere could be improved, will be back.

Since North Star is in our neighborhood, it's a "go to" place when you want a variety of choices. They have personal pizzas, salads, sandwiches, full entrees like steaks/pastas/chops. I've never had anything that was just ordinary here. Some things like the blue cheese burger are dependably consistent. I've had some brilliant dishes here: a pasta with early spring peas... More

Lunch with friends was a huge success. I had the 2 crab cake salad which was delicious. It came with greens, capers, onions, cherry tomatoes, avocado, blue cheese and nuts. In addition the bread was great as well, although I would have enjoyed a second piece which was what you usually get and I didn't think to ask for more.... More

Not a whole of atmosphere, but the food makes up for it. Joy, my server, was attentive and quick. I think the menu has great choices, wish I could have had the shrimp ettoffue which looked delicious. Mid priced, not break the bank expensive. I would come back.

We have used North Star for catering and for dining out, and they are wonderful people to deal with. They put a lot of thought into the catering part of the business, and the results are always very good. The Bistro itself is a special place to go: not too loud, nicely laid out space, and waiters who put the... More

The bartender was amazing. He was very attentive and helpful with the menu. Everything we had was great. Happy hour until 630 with 50% off apps. Food was great.

A lunch that was supposed to be in celebration of team support turned into an "ok" meal with great conversation. The salad special of the day had no flavor, was very small and within an hour or two I was really hungry. One of the other salads lacked a variety of ingredients, had little dressing and was generally blah. I... More
