“disappointing”
Reviewed March 11, 2013

Located on Chapel Hill Street, across from "La Vaquita" (The Cow, for those who grew up in Durham), in an old home from the early 1900's.

Ample parking. Quiet ambience, homey decor. Several dining areas.

Wife had a Foursquare martini, prepared well.

We split the boudin sausage appetizer, one of us had the leg of lamb, two others had the trout. The leg of lamb was served off the bone, very tasty. The trout was uncharacteristically fishy tasting.

Service was TERRIBLE. Though the restaurant was not crowded, it took us an hour to get our main courses (good thing there was bread), and another hour to finally get our check and get out. There was a pair of gentlemen dining in our dining area, and from overheard conversation, it appeared that one of them was a local chef of some repute. Our waitress was much more interested in trading foodie lore with them than she was concerned with getting our food to us with any celerity.

Don't bother with this over-rated restaurant.

“Lovely House”
Reviewed February 28, 2013

The house is wonderfully restored but the upstairs rooms are very small and the steps are very steep. The food and service were good but my balance on those steps tainted the experience.

“Durham favorite”
Reviewed February 15, 2013

My husband and I love Four Square - we go for special occasions or any possible excuse. It's pricey but the service, wine selections, and most of all food are always outstanding.
