    Pizza was ok….It was a bit too soggy and they had a special pizza that was just a terrible combination of ingredients. Otherwise service was good and overall a nice atmosphere.

    Area 4 has the most amazing pizza in a funky shop with a great vibe. Service is amazing and the staff are a delight. The mushroom pizza is so delicious-I don’t know what magic they put in-but it’s fantastic!! The sherry bacon with garlic? Equally drool worthy. If you want to throw some greens in go for the Brussels salad with hazelnuts-you won’t be disappointed!

    I love A4 but last night was a miss, it was exceptionally loud - would be great to have some foam on the ceilings just to dampen it a bit especially when every single table is booked with lab holiday parties etc. Everyone was literally shouting to be heard. The pizza was soaking wet even after waiting for it to cool a few minutes, like disintegrating on the middle of the pizza pan, and we had to scrape it onto the plate to eat it. Tasted good but not quite pizza...Server "swapped out" with another server at the end of our meal and I wish we had got our box and check at that moment because after 30 minutes no one had come by to check on us. We were just sitting there in a mostly empty restaurant as all the servers were busy cleaning up and bussing the rest of the restaurant. Had to get out of my seat and talk to our former server and the manager to get our check.

    The food was outstanding as usual, and the service was amazing, especially since our cast of characters changed over the course of the evening (one nephew was joined by another nephew, the first nephew left after awhile and was replaced, later, by our son) and we stayed for a very long time. Our server was attentive, cheerful, and flexible. We had a great night.

    The food was very good but it took a while. Two of the meals were served while the third person had no food for an extra 10 minutes, making it really awkward sitting there waiting to eat for the first two people. The service was also mediocre and it was like we had three different servers, but none of them really seemed to pay attention to us really. It felt like they don’t have assigned tables and everyone takes care of all tables but the result is that no one is really focused on any one table and it makes the service confusing and inconsistent.

    Pre-Covid A4 was a favorite. Fun vibe, great service and fantastic food. Food is still good but server was totally indifferent. Didn’t check in; didn’t come by to see if we wanted another round. Dropped the check without a word. Etc.

    Food was super delicious - garlic knots and the three dips were fantastic, and the pizza was stellar (as usual). However, the service was poor. I love area four and don’t know if we came at an off time or what. We didn’t get appetizer plates until well after our food was out. After we got the plates we had to wait more for cutlery. We asked for a dessert menu multiple times and never got it, even though our server kept coming back to tables around us. We had to ask multiple people for a check. Overall it was a weird experience with the service, and I would’ve really liked to order a cookie skillet, if only I had gotten the dessert menu. But the food was tasty!

    Loved the shaved brussel sprout and kale salad; they will do half and half pies so if you have a party that wants to try different pies but doesn't want to order too much this is a bonus! Good quality experience all around. Very friendly staff.

    Area 4 is a great place no matter what the occasion. This was a work meal where people really enjoyed the high quality, but not extensive draft beer selection (they also have a great can and bottled beer selection). Food is always great, wood fired pizzas, interesting special pizzas, salads are always good. Nice and warm place with the fires going.
