Had a great time, celebrated our son-in-laws birthday! We had two different pizza's that were very good along with several appetizers which included brussel sprouts, glazed mozzarella bites, fries & antipasto salad. We really enjoyed our meals and the granddaughters had desserts which they enjoyed. A unicorn dessert along with a gelato dessert (fried) with whipped cream and carmel sauce. It was very tasty. Parlor Pizza is in the West Loop, a very large and opened restaurant, there is also seating outside and that area is pet friendly. Weather was great and we had a very enjoyable time & would highly recommend the establishment. The place filled up very fast, glad we made reservations.

I have been to this restaurant many times and have NEVER had such rude, disrespectful service as I received from Eric, the manager. From the moment we sat in the bar, he gave us attitude. We sat at an unoccupied table with a bottle of wine, and instead of kindly asking us to move, he told us we had made the table dirty. When we didn't move fast enough he muttered "I guess nobody heard what I'm saying." We were promptly seated, but not given menus. When our server informed us we couldn't be served b/c we didn't have menus, he came over and demanded to know who sat us. Once we were given our menus we asked for his name. He returned to the table and said "Well, I know you asked for my name. What else do you want to know about me."

It ruined the entire experience. I will not return to Parlor, knowing that this is the way management handles its customers.

Hummus appetizer was very good and large - definitely plenty for a table of four. Clam pizza was disgusting. The crust was good, but it had little-to-no clams, and and a thick layer of Parmesan cheese on top which required scrapping off before eating.

Parlor pizza did a great job helping us accommodate more than we initially expected. We started with a reservation for 10 which grew to 18 and they worked with us to seat and serve everyone. Food was great and service was great! Will be back!

We had a reservation for 10 people and they would not sit us until at least 8 people showed up. The table is already reserved, so I don't understand why make 6 of us wait around. They loose money because our bill could have been larger with ordering drinks while we wait for the rest of the party to show up. Wouldn't come here again.

Such a great experience. We had a group of 20 to celebrate my birthday and the service was great. Our waitress did such a phenomenal job taking care of a group that large. No one ever had to wait to get drink orders and food came out quick and delicious. Thanks for a great time Parlor!

The one star rating is due to the fact that your hostess actually yelled at me. I understand it was very busy and that must be stressful job, but as a customer, I do not deserve to be yelled at. The food is good here and the waitress was very nice. I’ve been a repeat visitor to this location but after this visit I’m weary of returning.

Really good pizza, good service. Went early Sunday afternoon during NCAAB tourney. All TVs had game on and LOUD. We were probably 20+ yes older than average so maybe younger kids enjoy screaming to talk. Had 4 pm table reserved, no wait even though packed. Waitress recommended some beer samples and was spot on. Overall really good experience, just noisy.

We went on recommendations from multiple friends for my son’s 14th birthday, Saturday at 7pm. The noise level was like a rock concert. We couldn’t talk. At all. We had to point to items on the menu to communicate with the server. I had no problem with sports on every TV, but I don’t see how cranking the volume that high is necessary. My daughter’s ears were ringing with pain. The pizza was average. Definitely not worth the poor ambiance & mediocre service.

We had so much fun at Parlor! Our group kept growing and instead of us having to sit at separate tables, Parlor set us up with plenty of space together upstairs. The food and pizzas were delicious as always, and the ambiance was very fun. Thanks for a great day!

There were 9 of us there for a birthday dinner & the food was very tasty, however the customer service could be improved. Upon walking in it took the hostess a minute to react that I was there & to ask if I needed anything, which at that time I had already found my party. Our server was nice, but not super with it. She frequently walked behind the wall & would write messages on her iWatch or something as opposed to coming to our table to check in. It grew rather frustrating at the end of our meal when she never offered the check and we had to wait for her attention to flag her down. In summary - go for the food, not the service.

Definitely being added into my rotation of must-have pizza places in Chicago. We got the Pizza Bread and the Kale Cobb Salad to start. The pizza bread was not what we expected, but still pretty good. It was a fusion of half garlic bread, half stromboli-type feel. If you’re with a large group, this is a great shareable (about 8 slices worth). For just two people - way too much. The Kale Cobb Salad was delicious. One of the best kale salads I’ve ever had. The pizza - we shared the “How Stracciatella Got Her Groove Back”. 13-inch, Neapolitan-style pie. Cut into 6 slices. San Marzano tomato sauce, spicy soppressata, chili oil, shaved garlic, jalapeños, Parmesan, and stracciatella. It packed a punch, but dang, it hit the spot. We were talked into dessert with very little persuasion needed. A “scoop” of mint chocolate chip gelato, is like 5-6 scoops in a plastic cup so don’t be surprised if you have to take it home (they don’t have to-go lids for these cups so beware of the commute home with an open gelato container. Worth it though and I’d come back just for that. My brother got the Go Nuts tacolato and really liked it. Service was awesome - MaryBeth was so sweet, provided a lot of great recommendations and was attentive throughout our experience. New fav pizza spot in chitown. Thanks, PP - I’ll be back.
