Food was over-priced and underwhelming. Went for lunch based on good OT reviews and was disappointed. Best thing on the table was kids chicken fingers (fresh breaded chicken cutlets). Tomato soup and French onion grilled cheese were bland. Kids hamburger was tiny and roll was burned. Restaurant was freezing. So may good restaurants in this area.- this was a disappointment on a rare family day out. Would not return.

We had such a great time ! Great attentive servers , delicious food. Highly recommend. We ordered for a table a vegetarian curry dish , chicken wings, gnocchi and a side of fries. It was more than enough food for three people ( portion size is very generous).

So glad they are back. Best service in town. The Chef deserves every bit of praise possible. Jerk chicken was extraordinary! Caesar salad was huge and delightful. This is what dining was meant to be.

We were amazed at the surf and turf deal that the restaurant offered on Mondays and Tuesdays! Service was very hospitable and prompt. Only complaints were with the bar. The mixed drink we ordered was subpar and Guinness in a can seems below this restaurant. Overall a terrific way to spend our night though!

Went to Square 1682 for a birthday dinner after a few years away. Bottom line, the service was terrible. The food was fine and the atmosphere was fun, but we didn't wait around for desert because we simply couldn't put up with the slow and inattentive service.

This is just a bar with some tables. The food we had was OK; far from interesting. And the noise level is off the charts because, well, you're in a bar.

My husband and I were having a quick getaway and this restaurant was within walking distance. I had soup and corn bread. Corn bread was delicious, soup was average. Husband had rigatoni and it was fine. Dessert was undercook to the point it was returned and credited on our bill. All in all fine.

Liked the seating. It was comfortable and you didn’t feel crowded by others. It was private in that you had a nice buffer from others. The staff was friendly and made you feel welcome. The food was okay and overpriced. The drinks were great but overpriced. Loved the dessert and a scotch.

What kind of place In Philly that has a cheesesteak on their brunch menu and is not able to make it! Waitress said the kitchen did not have the ingredients to make it at noon on Sunday. Lol.

We apologize for selling out of our Cheesesteak during your recent visit - sometimes it is so popular it is hard to keep up with! We look forward to the opportunity to show you what we are made of and hope you will give us another chance.

Good pub-like experience. Smart idea to have the $36 fixed-price menu — it is a good value. The food is good. Tables are pretty close to the bar, which makes for a lively scene, at times a bit noisy. Service is very kind, helpful but at times a bit stretched. Well worth a visit.

We loved the food! if you like flavor Square 1682 is the place to try. It was a small place but it was very nicely decorated and romantic. We ordered off the small plate menu to try some new things and the duck wings were awesome. The herb ravioli was amazing too! We will be back!

Food was delicious. Dishes were larger than expected. Service was prompt and attentive. Was not overly crowded for a midday Sunday brunch, but not empty either. Ambiance was nothing to write hole about, but everything was well laid out and presented well.
