The Square Cafe is a very stylish, cozy spot perfect for lunch with friends. Portions are on the smaller side, fine for smaller appetites, but may be disappointing for heartier eaters.

Square café is usually very busy and because it is in one large room with high ceilings, it ends up being pretty noisy. The food is surprisingly mostly spicy so, if you don't like spices, your choice ends up being very limited. It is obvious that there are "regulars" coming to the restaurant and these patrons are treating differently by... More

Was here for a meal with family Service was great, food and drinks great too We arrived early and it did fill up very fast. Just surprised at how expensive the prices were. I would expect the prices in Boston, but was a bit surprised given where we were Only reason I have it four stars.

The dining room can get loud of those of us over 60, so we sit at the bar with Misti attending bar and always end up making new friends over a glass of wine or cocktail. Dinner did not disappoint, the swordfish was cooked perfectly and the flavors clean and fresh. When we asked to exchange one component of the... More

Square cafe has very good food and service. I have been there multiple times and always have a good experience. A little pricey so I don't go as often as I would like.

Square Cafe is one of Hingham best restaurants. I only gave it four stars because of the price. It is very expensive. Otherwise, the food is great and they have a great wine selection. Bar is a little small. Restaurant is always hopping and has a good atmosphere.

I love this restaurant! It has a boutique feeling! When you enter, the host/hostess is always pleasant and makes you feel very special! It is a great place for lunch or dinner. They have fantastic gluten free options,(we had one person in our party), Just ask their knowledgeable servers . I highly recommend the calamari for an appetizer. It is... More

A lot of the times that we order calamari, it is overcooked and it is like eating little Michelin tires. This was cooked just right, crispy and tender with an unusual sweet and sour sauce and grapefruit. Just excellent. I was eating light and had a turkey club, which was fine. But my wife had an excellent baked cod. I... More

One of the few consistently reliable good restaurants in the south shore area. Good, seasonal menu, great service and ambience.
