They created a safe and welcoming outdoor dining area here, and we stopped during happy hour for drinks. We were well taken care of and it was a fun experience in a very cool neighborhood.

Had the worst dining experience ever. Terrible food and awful service. They acted like they were doing us a favor by allowing us to eat there. Rude, rude, rude.

North Square is a delightful restaurant on the edge of New York’s Washington Square Park. We had an outdoor booth on a perfect evening in June. The alternative is the cozy, semi-subterranean Art Deco dining room. One of our party is a regular and I...can see why. The food is American bistro and is very well prepared. I had calamari and profiteroles (the latter made with ice cream, not custard cream as in Europe) This was a self-indulgent and satisfying two course dinner. We each had different dishes and were all pleased with our food. Options include appetizers, salads, sandwiches, main courses, side dishes, and, of course, desserts. Service was attentive and as for the atmosphere, it's New York at its best. What’s not to like? Only problem: the outdoor tables are accessible, but there are several steep steps into the dining room.More

This place has been here for years, just north of Washington Square- thus the name. You can pay a lot more at any number of nearby spots and get a lot less quality. This place is a winner - cozy, historic, good food anda nice...lounge.More

Part of the Washington Square Hotel. Clearly a lot of locals use this as a regular. Good was fine, service was attentive, there is a good wine list. A lounge in the next room has a small bar (sits six at the bar, also plenty...of tables). On Sundays 12.00-3.30 there is a brunch jazz but you need to book as its very popular. The band invited anyone to come up and sing (some did - I think it's one of those places people know about, and go to).More

We sat in the bar, which is a very pretty inviting space. We were here for happy hour and the drinks were very good and had low prices. Excellent service from professional staff.

A recent renovation has turned a long-standing, cozy little restaurant --a local institution--into a look- a -like diner, complete with red plastic booths, garish lighting and other decor, and bad music to match. The food and service remain fine, but the distinctive and reasonable price-fixed...menu has disappeared.; A real shame!More

Every time we decide to “eat in “ at the Washington Square Hotel, we are never disappointed. This time it was the seared tuna which turned out to be a good choice. A half-bottle of Spanish white wine and we were all set.

We enjoyed our evening there this past week. The food and service were very nice. Seems like a locals place for sure and an older crowd in general.

We only ate breakfast here once and it was good. Would have done it more often if we had known that they would extend all the freebees at the continental breakfast upstairs and only charge you for additional dishes (e.g eggs and meat)

North Square has an excellent menu, with moderate prices. It is located right in the Washington Square Hotel, but accessible from the street as well. The lounge area is very nice with happy hour drinks and food from 5-7. Our bartender was Alexandra who was...an absolute delight.More

Having a lovely lunch (alone) at North Square near Washington Park. You must come and ask for Ramphiel, who secretly wishes to be a fashion designer. And try our new invention: Gazpacho + Tito’s.

I’ve been to this restaurant a few times. One of the things I like about it is that you can actually hear your dining companions and have a conversation. I’ve had the steak with pepper sauce a few times and it’s always tender and delicious....One of my friends always orders lamb chops and likes them. There’s a big selection of dishes and wines and the service is excellent. If you want a quiet restaurant near Washington Square you should consider North Square.More

Greenwich Village
Commonly known as “the Village” to New Yorkers, it was
here in Greenwich Village that both 1960’s counter
culture and the LGBT movement were born. Famous for
its bohemian past, head to Washington Square Park to
get a feel for this diverse and energetic
neighborhood. You’ll find NYU students, street
performers, skateboarders, kids frolicking in the
fountain, and locals relaxing and playing chess.
