My wife and I visit North Star Bistro every so often, but our last two visits were superb: they have truly perfected some gourmet burger offerings. I had an au poivre burger with blue cheese, lettuce and tomato on a soft pretzel bun that really hot home. The big dill pickle and sweet potato fries rounded out the meal very... More

The service was poor. The waitress brought the wrong drinks twice. We waited 35 minutes for the appetizer and then our food was brought out 2 minutes later. Before we received our food the waitress asked if we wanted dessert. The fish fry was greasy and lacked flavor. The potato pancakes were bland. The steak sandwich was good. This was... More

This is one of our favorites to visit for happy Hour or an after-work meal at the bar. Servers seem to be happy and they are appropriately attentive. Nice, varied choices on the menu at relatively reasonable prices. Nice setting in a comfortable atmosphere and location.

We chose this restaurant to celebrate a friend's birthday. From the moment we walked in, we received top-notch service. Our server was very knowledgeable of the menu and helped with the wine selection. I had the Bourbon Salmon. It was cooked perfectly and the presentation was lovely. The portion size was just right. 2 others at our table had the... More

We live very close to North Star American Bistro and had been there only once for brunch so we thought we would go for dinner this time. Food: the food was delicious! All four of us very much enjoyed our meals. I had the Yellow Fin Tuna which was AWESOME! I also had the French Onion Soup and it was... More

My husband and I recently ate at the North Star American Bistro to celebrate out anniversary, and we had a wonderful experience. The staff is all very warm and friendly. I can't tell you how many people were greeted by the staff so personally that it's clear they have many loyal customers. We were constantly attended too, and given privacy... More

This bistro is immaculate, modern, comfortable and inviting. Our waitress was very prompt, friendly and helpful. The brushetta was a nice start for us, with its great combo of goat cheese, marinated tomatoes & balsamic reduction. I ordered the Flat Iron steak with truffled fried mushrooms, white cheddar mashed potatoes and green beans with a Madeira sauce. After savoring every... More

I love the variety of choices and the specials they come up with. It is casual but not weird to be dressed up or in jeans. Not for shorts and a tank top. Great atmosphere.
