We dine at North Star a couple times a month. The food is always delicious. I especially like the bourbon salmon. The atmosphere is intimate and semi-formal (although we often wear jeans).

I have dined several times in the past at the location on Oakland, this was my first visit to the Brookfield branch. The food was great, just like at the Oakland site. Service was also great. The only thing it lacks really is atmosphere/ ambiance.

Met friends for drinks and a great dinner. Good quality food with pleasant, competent service with fair prices. Appetizers really good, especially crab cakes. Seafood risotto awesome.

I have dined at North Star occasionally over the years, thought nice atmosphere in bar & restaurant - food just okay. 4 of us recently visited. We ordered whitefish (loved it!), bacon wrapped meatloaf, salmon and a chicken dish. Everyone raved about the meal. I am guessing their food has made changes/improvements since it was busy on a Saturday night... More

Went for a post-Thanksgiving family get together and had a very nice meal. We chose this place after looking over the menu and seeing that they had something for pretty much every taste. Being that we were there for lunch it was basically sandwiches, salads, and soups all around. Word is that the French Onion is the best! I had... More

We headed to North Star Bistro for a tri-birthday celebration. My husband and I had not been there before, so we welcomed the suggestion to give it a try. We were seated immediately (it was a Saturday evening) and given our selection of tables. We chose a quiet corner which was cozy for the four of us. My friend even... More

We went there with my nieces aged 10 and 7. Very nice atmosphere but so dark i had to get out a flashlight to read the menu. The service was wonderful as was the bread. I had a Caesar salad which was just okay. We ordered a Mac and cheese pizza to split. It was very bland. I tasted my... More

I was trying for Coopers Hawk but as it turned out I found something really good. North Star Bistro is first class food and service. The bread basket has a good selection and their French Onion Soup was fantastic. Our entrees were both steak and we left no morsel when we were finished.

It had been a long time since I had eaten here. Food was very good, staff was excellent, we had a very fun time. The atmosphere is very generic, which is not a bad thing. The only complaint was my scallops, they were overlooked and I think the person plating, dumped a container of bacon pieces on my plate. The... More

Went to North Star Bistro on a Friday night recently. Had a reservation for two and was seated immediately in a quiet booth. Ambiance was nice, cozy, romantic and noise was a comfortable level. Had an outgoing waiter who was attentive and personable. I order my steaks medium well and am used to them coming a bit tough but I... More
