A word from Pizza Rock - Downtown
Taking pizza to the next level, Pizza Rock was born from the creative minds of three best friends: George Karpaty, Tony Gemignani, and Trevor Hewitt. Combining George and Trevor's nightlife expertise (Ruby Skye, San Francisco) with Tony's pizza making expertise (11-time World Pizza Champion, Tony's Pizza Napoletana, San Francisco), Pizza Rock is pizza artisan meets nightlife energy. This is not your traditional pizzeria. We are excited to bring this unique concept to Downtown Las Vegas. Pizza Rock features gourmet pizzas in a variety of styles, hand-crafted artisan cocktails, an extensive wine list, and over 30 craft beers on tap and in bottles; all served up in an artistic and energetic atmosphere.

    Overall, the experience was good. Food is delicious and the music videos they play are great, but our server seemed to rush us along. She did not give us very much time to look over the menu and was constantly asking if we were ready to order. Two different drinks (beer, wine) that were ordered, the restaurant was out of. (This was a Saturday night)

    Discovered Pizza Rock by accident, reading an article on the top pizza's in the US. Upon arrival, you're greeted by a vibrant, high energy atmosphere. from the full bar to the food selections, you're covered in every way. We ordered the Margharita- the award winning, limited number made per day and it was intense. You can easily taste the difference the Italian flour and high end ingredients come together in the crust- not too heavy and doesn't make you feel stuffed. Along with a Frank Nitti pizza, chicken parm, asparagus, arugula salad, and desert, this is one of the more memorable destinations for a fun delicious evening.

    My title above sums up the experience. I can't believe the hype and this restaurant is a perfect example when dining becomes a concept and not a place to have a great meal. How did this pie ever win an award? They even have a picture of it next to the oven. The flavors should have sparkled and the crust should have been crusty moist yet flaky with a touch of the wood burn flavor. We also had a gorgonzola apple salad, combo calamari and "moretti"beer battered artichokes, a beer and soda. All overpriced bar food that was better than the award winning pizza. The menu and hype makes one want to try the other pizzas on the menu but after this experience I won't be coming back with friends or family, or recommending Pizza Rock. I really hoped to have a different experience, too. Staff were plenty busy as the place was packed and there was some disjunction between the arrival of food and beverages. The restaurant is doing very well it appears based on tourists coming for the hype I guess, or people who dont know good food.

    Our server was great only have one call out if you order two pizzas an need to take home both, ask the server to place in two separate pizza boxes to go. Our server placed my Margarita Pizza on top of my husband's and it ended up sticking to the top of the pizza box. I only ate 2 slices so I had 3/4 of pizza left and it was ruined had no left overs and the pizza was $26.00 that I wasted!!!

    We came here for dinner for my husband's birthday. I informed the hostess that we were expecting a friend as a surprise and that it was my husband's birthday. The table was set up to include tableware and a menu for the surprise guest (quite a tip off) and while waiting, our server asked if we were expecting another person. Thankfully, my husband was still surprised by our guest but our server did nothing for his birthday! The food was delicious and we were seated right away, thanks to making reservations through Open Table, the two saving graces that would bring me back again.

    We loved this spot so much we went back a second time and would definitely visit again! Food was great and you got a lot for your buck... thankfully the waitress recommended we share the Mac & Cheese b/c two of us couldn't finish it. The green beans were sooooooooo yummy!! Pizza was delish! The Peterbilt DJ booth was very cool... that's what brought us in after searching for a place near Fremont Street but it was the food that brought us back.

    I'm originally from Brooklyn, NY. So I already know something about good pizza. Pizza Rock delivers on good pizza. They have a nice selection of different pies and my favorite is Cal Italia. It has nice blend of sweet and savory. It's something worth trying.

    The pizza was exceptional! We ordered several different pizzas for a party of three. The Cali w/fig was outstanding, the Old Chicago was close enough to real Chicago pizza and brew was enjoyed by all. The noise level is a different deal. The adults ranged in age from twenty-nine to mid fifties. It was system overload via sensory receptors (sight and sound). Just ratchet it down one notch. It was a delicious dinner without being able to carry on a conversation.

    My husband and I had heard about Pizza rock from our son. so we decided to invite him and his beautiful fiancée before broadway show kinky boots last Saturday evening. I love that downtown is being revitalized so wanted to try Pizza rock out. What makes it so great is that it could be a place for date night or bring your family or meet your friends. Service was great, food good. We will make this a regular place to visit when we are downtown.

    I had been wanting to go here for a while & finally did. We made a last minute reservation. Parking was a breeze on the street at meters. We were seated immediately. Service was, also, great...nothing above & beyond, but we never had to wait for anything. Food was great & I would like to try more. The only think I didn't enjoy was the meatball appetizer...very bland and meat was WAY over worked. We were there on date night, but it seemed much more conducive to smaller groups for a fun night out...very crowded & very loud.

    Reservation was for 4 people, Friday at 6, got there seated straight away. It was pretty quiet around this time, usually I am there after 8pm when its a fair bit noisier and darker. We had the pizza that has 3 pizzas in one.. We got the II (again) its soo good! We had our 2 year old with us and she loved the pizza of course. Great service, and we will keep coming back!

    The hostess at the desk was rude and did not listen to what we said. That's OK, as the food and server made up for overall impression of the place. Food and service great. If you get rid of that individual a customer has to see and talk to first upon entry to this place, it would be a lot better place to dine!

    The Pizza was great! The menu is pretty extensive and features various pizza styles from regions around the country/world. They even note how the different pies are made (temperature and cooking system). The place is a very welcoming and open environment. It is a bit noisey - think good for groups, not annoying. We ate on the early side and there were many families with younger children. Based on the music and the decore, I have a feeling the later scene is really fun! I would definitely go back - especially with a large group. The beer list was impressive - and Sarah, our serve, was awesome!

    This pizza spot was not as good as anticipated. The waitress was very pushy to get our order, but very slow to deliver and not able to tell who ordered what (party of 4). Ordering a second round of wine was so slow, we only got it as we were getting ready to leave. In addition, the sound track was so loud, conversation was very difficult.

    Loved the ambience. Great service. Unfortunately, pizza crust came out burnt, blackened. We asked if that was okay. Kitchen server told us that was the style of the pizza? Didn't have time to send back to kitchen so we ate the middle portion of the pizza that was not scortched. That was very good... Table server apologized when she noticed our plates full of burnt inedible pizza crust. We appreciated her acknowledment versus "that is the style of the pizza." Plus, provided a local resident discount.

    Even though group arrived at different times we were seated in a timely manner. The 18wheeler and the TV everywhere were a nice touch. The bartender I will call Pippi Longstocking (because her hair was in ponytails) saved what would have been a less than ZERO stars for service. Over the course of 90min the water glasses were filled one time and drinks had to be ordered from the bar. I hope the waiter that served us is able to find better employment where his “catty” attitude may be of a better use. Once the servers’ attitude was brought to the Managers attention, at the end of the evening, he was apologetic and did make it right by our party. I would give them another chance if the server we had is not onsite.
