Excellent wood fired pizza, "small"/individual size very generous and reasonably priced. Ingredients all fresh and flavorful. Slight serving accident when server spilled a bottled root beer all over my friend and his white, linen shirt; although the manager brought over the replacement root beer, it was still on the bill. Surprised to not have that comped, at least. Otherwise a lovely experience!

I brought my college aged daughter for dinner. The waiter was pleasant overall but didn’t seem to be interested in serving us as much as other tables where he was excited and charming. When he learned I had a dairy allergy, he told me what I could order but didn’t seem interested in trying to help. It felt like he just didn’t think too much of us, maybe because he thought we weren’t going to spend a lot of money with it just being the two of us. My daughter enjoyed her order, so that was a plus.

The pizza was delicious and it wasn’t too loud. However, the service was pretty spotty and put a damper on the experience.

The food and service has always been good . However today I left the restaurant hungry because the pizza was very charred and although the waitress offered to make us another one we decided to eat around the burned crust but then realized the bottom was also too charred to eat and by then we realized that it was too late to ask for new pizza . The manager didn’t charge us for the pizza but we left hungry . I would go back again ( not soon ) because this was the first time we had bad pizza and hopefully next time this would not happen and if it does we will definitely send it back and ask for a better one . The special salad which was cauliflower with celery and cucumber was very good . We usually order the Brussels sprout salad which is much bigger portion and more filling

Great place! We go back every week, for a drink, dinner, a morning coffee, or afternoon cocktail. Love their cocktails.
They have an impressive list of beers that is worth checking.

Area Four never disappoints. I dream about their sausage and pickled pepper pizza, hand-crafted cocktails, and giant cinnamon rolls! It's always bustling but feels very homey and welcoming. Highly recommend.

Superb brunch, I went for the ‘Hot Mess’. My only advice with this dish would be if you don’t like slice ask for the pepper relish on the side.

Staff were super friendly and I think prices were really reasonable for the quality of the food.

I’d advise booking a table as it was pretty much full as soon as they opened.

Enjoy!

Went here for a family get-together. The sourdough pizza is not what I am accustomed to (Italian, Greek, etc.), but it was outstanding. Like most restaurants, it was a bit noisy for a group of six to all hear each other, but that is unfortunately becoming the norm. The pizza was a bit pricey, but it was also rather unique.

We love Area Four. We live 20-40 minutes away depending on traffic and yet we still make an effort to get there. In my opinion it's the best pizza around and the service is always great. They have a pretty dependably good beer list and it's kid friendly without being all kids all the time. Definitely recommend for a casual night out. My favorite appetizer/salad is the brussel sprout salad and my favorite pizza is the mushroom and fontina. You definitely need a rez. 90% of the time.

I love Area Four! We’ve only ever been on Valentine’s Day (this year and last year), but we’ve had a great experience both times. The only complaint I have is that they actually brought the food out too fast this year... We ordered 2 appetizers and a pizza and they brought it out almost faster than we could eat! We sat down shortly after 6:30 and were done at 7:15. But drinks are good and creative and all the food we’ve had there has been great. We’ll go back for next Valentine’s Day!

The restaurant wasn’t very busy and service was definitely on the slow side (eg ordered a drink refill before meal arrived; it arrived when I was finishing my food). Food was good as usual but I had hoped for an interesting vegetarian pizza special like I’ve had other times I’ve eaten at Area Four.
