It wasn't good. We heard it was good. We tried it and it really just wasn't. The service and food were actually surprisingly bad for all the hype. Waitress couldn't answer simple questions and had to call another server for help. We are easy to please but wouldn't have returned. Gave it two stars for the cute old house/atmosphere. Everything...

I've been meaning to dine at Four Square for, well, probably as long as it's been open. With it closing for good, my husband and I decided the procrastination needed to end. Business was brisk on a Tuesday evening, but with a reservation, we were seated with no waiting. Service was great. The first course choices were plentiful, but I... More

We had a delightful meal. Unfortunately, we learned this past week they are closing. All of our meals over the past years were excellent. They will be missed. I believe their last day is June 30.

Very nice Thursday dinner at Four Square. They have a nice little bar area to crab a cocktail before your meal and then we sat outside for dinner. I had the gazpacho appetizer and lamb chops and both were excellent. Nice wine selection and wonderful service.

I cannot express enough how amazing this establishment truly is. The food was absolutely delicious, the environment was comfortable, the staff were knowledgeable, professional, personable, and went out of their way to address your every need. I highly recommend visiting this treasure and will be visiting again myself in the very near future.

My wife and I were visiting the area and our GPS took us to a vacant lot instead of the restaurant we were trying for. Driving a bit more, we found Four Square and were glad we did. The food, though not lavish in quantity, was superb and there was sufficient of it. I had the kalbi ribs and she... More

This is a lovely old house as a setting for fine dining. The chef has wonderful ideas and some wonderful pairings of flavors. The freshness of the ingredients and the seafood was obvious. Our server was extremely attentive and made our visit complete.

An innovative menu in a great old house. Tried the duck egg appetizer. An interesting flavor. The wild boar was particularly tasty. Great salty flavor. Others spoke highly of the chicken and steak. Only three beers on tap but all unique and flavorful. Service was perfect.

I last visited here in 2010-2011. Swore never to come back after being relegated to the upstairs 3 times in a row. The ceilings are low and the space is cramped. Decided to return, and I'm glad I did. The creative, seasonal menu for my meal will be long gone by the time you read this review. Just know that... More

My mom and I had a great time celebrating my sister's 33rd bday. This restaurant has been on my sister's must go list for years (we are true blue i) and for some reason she never tried it. It was totally worth the wait! My sister and mom are foodies, adventurous pallets and always ready to try new flavors, in... More
