Our first time dining at Connie's Gold Coast. Order was delayed because of oven failure, but Connie's management more than made up for it by offering double digit discount. The ambiance was relaxing so we did not mind the wait, and when the pizza did arrive (deep dish, pepperoni-mushroom-green pepper), it was delicious!

Excellent food! We always like to get the deep dish pizza and create our own combinations!

The service was not great - the waitress seemed confused about how orders were taken and the service was relatively slow for a family restaurant, despite the restaurant being very uncrowded. Good pizza, just not great service.

Connie's is always comfortable! No matter if it is date night or a big family group, one always feels at home. The servers are especially friendly and the food always predictably delicious. They run various promotions such as buy one pizza, get one free or half-price wine so check those out too.

Very good deep dish pizza. Would highly recommend dining here if you get a chance.

The wood fired pizza is good but I would stick to the pan style of which most Connies are known for. Mine was ok but I would not order it again. The staff aims to please and are very friendly.

A family-friendly affordable restaurant of course with great pizza. We live in the Gold Coast and not all restaurants are affordable. Whenever life becomes so busy and I haven't had time to grocery shop or cook, this is our new "go-to" for a casual, affordable evening out!

Food was ok. Price was ok. It was just pretty average. My pizza was way too salty. Nothing to write home about at this place.

The woodfire pizza was excellent; the combination of the tasty crust, delicious sauce and fresh toppings was perfect. Complement it with a stellar tap craft beer and you will have 1 great experience.

But seemed to have challenges along the way with service. It was a slow Sunday afternoon but attention to detail and service was questionable.

Brought out four water glasses for the table-- big glasses-- including for my 5 and 2 year old.

Ordered the kids meal for them and asked the their meal to come out with my salad and my salad came out first.

Needed to ask for their milk as part of the kids meal to come. Twice.

Service just seemed off.

Food is great.

We celebrated our wedding anniversary at Connie's Friday. Our hostess, Kacie, made sure our evening was special. Please send her our regards! Our booth was dressed with fine linens and the service was exceptional. Many of the staff stopped by separately to congratulate us and ask "if there was something else they could do". The food was delightful, huge portions and beautiful presentation. The restaurant can accommodate large groups as well as private dining. We will visit again and bring the kids along. It was so refreshing to receive that level of service! Thanks Connie's Gold Coast!!!!

Great atmosphere, great food! The only thing I will say is that we had a $50 alcohol expense that was on our bill. My group only had water to drink. Make sure you check your receipt!

In a town and in age when pizza can rise to new levels, Connie's is stubborn so-so.

I've been going to Connie's for maybe 20 years! This was my first time at this location. It was very pretty and the quality of the food was exactly what I was expecting. It had a beautiful view of a garden, and I just loved the ambiance and decor of the place. Also, I loved that it was wheelchair accessible. I use a wheelchair, and I always feel insulted when a restaurant is not accessible, to me that feels like they do not care about their customers. This location had TWO wheelchair lifts to make sure we can enter, and I know how expensive those lifts are, so big points to Connie's for doing that!!

I reserved a table via OpenTable the night before. In the notes, I mentioned that I would be on a date and would like a quiet place to talk with my guest. The hostess delightfully honored our request and had a excited smirk on her face because she was obviously aware or our romantic occassion. Our server, Johnny Lopez was excellent. I could tell he was also aware of our occassion. He was not present too often, but was right there when we needed something. He respected our space and monitored us from a distance. As an employee for Hilton Hotels in Chicago, he was nice enough to give us an industry discount. He also went out of his way to surprise us with an extra tasting course of fresh Prosciutto di Parma. My date and I loved everything about Connie's Pizza. Although they specialize in wood burning oven pizza, the calamari was also great. Perfectly cooked. Not chewy at all. Lightly battered so the flavor of the calamari could speak for itself instead of heavily breaded seafood that masks the flavor of the main ingredient. Go to Connie's on your second or third date when you are comfortable enough with each other to throw some shorts on and enjoy some great food in the middle of Gold Coast's restaurant and bar district. KUDOS to Johnny, the hostess and the rest of the back of the house kitchen staff that often times gets overlooked for their labor and long hours of prepping. I am going back soon. -Antonio Q.

great pizza and salad but the service was so slow! We were the only ones in the restaurant and the pizza took forever to be served.
