    We had such great service from Matthew. He was so nice and gave really good recommendations. The pizza was (as my 20-yr-old likes to say) FIRE! It was so delicious! The prices were great. We will be going back! Many more times!

    Pizza was as good as it gets for Detroit style pizza. And came out quick though there were few customers at 6:30 on a Thursday evening. Pizza prices were kind of high but understandable given the ambiance which is quite nice. Better value at Jet’s but no ambiance there. Drink prices a bit on the high side as well. And just plain tacky serving a $13 glass of wine in a rocks glass. I guess i should have insisted on proper stemware but didn’t want to embarrass my son. A chintzy pour as well in my opinion. My son ordered one of their custom cocktails and seemed to enjoy it and price was OK. Might go back on a special occasion but nothing I’ll frequent very often.

    This is now my second time and it was not much better than the first. First Time: Food took forever to come out Then our to go box was dirty and we just left. Second Time: Waiter was a little rude. I ordered a Hot Toddy. Halfway through our entrees it still had not arrived But, I was served a side of Hot Honey, rather than a Hot Toddy.

    Kind enough. Food was good. We got there at 5:45 and there were only a few ppl there. That’s the reason we were a bit dismayed that the waitress just dropped off the glasses and water but didn’t pour it. I mean we are paying for “service” right? The Caesar salad was AMAZING! Everyone loved their pizza. Got crowded quickly. These servers just need to be properly trained.

    People have raved about this place since opening, and we finally got to have a night out to give it a shot. Unfortunately our server didn’t seem to want to be there, and it reflected in how we were waited on the entire time. Had to ask a neighboring table for share plates once pizza came out, had to ask another server for a refill of water… there are far too many places with better attention to detail in town to overpay for a pizza that wasn’t cooked all the way through.

    Be prepared to drive around to find parking if going on a weekend. The value for food is ok. Some of the prices for appetizers and mains are a bit high. The dough for the cheese breadsticks and pizza is great! Thick and edges are crunchy. It is great for meeting friends and or for families.

    Wanted to start with saying the food was delicious but just not what we were expecting- very heavy food and apps. I believe our experience would have been different if we had a more attentive server. we had to track her down on multiple occasions (to order, to get napkins, to ask for a box for the second time) as she would bring things and then leave and we would not see her for very long periods of time (the restaurant was almost empty when we were there). She wasn't too knowledgeable on questions we were asking her on menu items (maybe she was new?) I should have done more research beforehand regarding the type of pizza you all make as I found out after our food arrived the type is almost an in-between of hand tossed and deep-dish and I was expecting thin crust or flatbread options. When we were paying our bill, I listened as the hostess did an excellent job of explaining the pizza type and other menu items in detail to newly seated customers. It would have been great to have been at least offered that information beforehand from our server to make ordering a little easier. Not sure if we will come back- but hopefully this feedback helps for better server training and knowledge!

    Had been so excited to try this place. We went for Easter Sunday. No one was there - it was our table and another with 2 servers working. Our food was ok - waffle fries and chicken crunchers for the table to start. The fries were mediocre, the chicken crunchers were mainly breading and a little bit of thigh meat. We had 2 build your own pizzas which were good. Drinks refills were non-existent - we had to track down our server every time. We were her only table. By the time we left they had turned the music on and it was not so quiet. Another table or two had drifted in. Won’t be a place we return.

    I would not return to this restaurant, it is expensive for what it is. I got a $15 salad and a $19 pizza and two margaritas to drink. My total bill with tip and tax was $71. The pizza was just OK and the salad wasn’t very good so unfortunately this is not a place I will be returning. My friend got the eggplant and let me try it after she said it was super salty and wanted me to give my opinion and yes, it was super salty.
