North Star is not far from our home, and it has become a favorite of ours. Today we decided to stop in for lunch to celebrate our anniversary. We chose our favorites from the menu, a short-rib panini for my husband, and the cod fish...More

We are so frustrated with places that keep removing menu items that we like. This place had the best dessert called Ho-Ho cake and they removed it because according to our server the kitchen thought "it too labor intensive." What? Isn't that the point of...More

Sorry you weren't informed of the up charge for the flavored iced teas. We use fresh brewed tea leaves and fresh fruit purees for our flavored tea, thus we have to charge more for them. We regularly rotate desserts on our menus and you will...More

Awesome food. Their bacon bleu burger was good. Their appetizers (calamari, zucchini) were good. Staff was very nice, especially the bartender. Ambiance inside was good, however not much when you're looking outside the window. View is the parking lot, including the dumpster on the far...More

The food tasted OK, but they were pretty high priced to the type of the dish. I was kind of disappointed because I heard a lot of good comments about this restaurant. I will try again to see if it makes difference.

I rented the back room for my wife's birthday party. The final bill was $2,500. It was a total disappointment. We had a buffet planned and we were told they would use chafing dishes. This was not the case. As the food got cold they...More

Thank you for your feedback. I have reviewed with both our kitchen and waitstaff. I hope you will give us another opportunity as this is not the norm for us.

I gave it a two just because its a great location and has a nice bar. As for the food, its a typical attempt to look sophisticated while having no substance at all. The chicken in the chicken and waffles is a fleshy saute'd breast...More

I recently visited North Star for lunch while working in Brookfield. I ordered the pan-seared cod, which was a special Friday item I believe. I got it with sweet potato fries, which were the best thing on the plate. My colleague got the Bleu Cheese...More

I agree with the idea of calling ahead. I didn't think it was overly loud when we were there.
