I go to Parlor Pizza all of the time and I usually have a very positive experience. Unfortunately, I have a few gripes about my last visit. First, we were hoping to sit outside, but even with a reservation, it was an hour wait, so we had to sit inside. Second, because our reservation stated that we would be 4 adults and 4 kids, they crammed us into a booth for 6. It was extremely uncomfortable and difficult to function. I told the manager that they should never try to put 8 people at that table again, and he rudely responded, "OK." Finally, we asked if we could get the Abe Froman Fave with only sausage on half of the pizza, and they said they wouldn't do that. It was all or nothing. Despite all of this, I'll still go back. I live two blocks away and love the food, drinks and atmosphere here.

Pizza is absolutely delicious and a nice contrast to Chicago deep dish or the typical thin cracker like crust you find at most places. The salad was made from the freshest ingredients. Neat atmosphere- just need to return for dinner/cocktails on the rooftop and check it out.

I made a reservation via Open Table to sit outside, but when I arrived I received the go-around from the indoor hostess to speak with the outdoor hostess, just to find my reservation was only guaranteed for indoor. It would have been more helpful in the reservation process, if there was a notice for this. Additionally, I found the service to be a bit overwhelming. The server asked us for our order immediately after we were seated and checked if our food was ok immediately after we had just received the food. It seems like her timing could have been a bit more relaxed, but it was a full restaurant, at least she was checking on us. Other staff would stop by and interrupt our table to remove our napkin paper.

I go there all the time and had a horrible experience due to a non customer oriented manager. He not only made us feel uncomfortable because we didn’t want to sit in the heat, but he made us feel unwelcome.

Everything was great! The service was excellent and the pizza was delicious! We had the mozzarella sticks and Brussel Sprouts as an appetizer, they were awesome.
We will be back again for sure!

This is one of my go to spots, but I was super disappointed with the service this past week. Our waitress could not fulfill our simple requests. messed up our drinks, forgot to put in half of our orders, and tried to charge us for items we did not order at the end. I will probably go back, but this definitely put a bad taste in my mouth.

Took out of town friends here and they loved it. Didn't want deep dish and this made for a great alternative for pizza. Appetizers and dessert menu both offered a nice variety. High energy with good service. All around fun time with good food.

Fun atmosphere. Have been here multiple times. The pizza is good. Dessert tacos are amazing. Service was not great this time. Took almost two hours for our entire meal. We did have a large group but ordered quickly and were decisive. Would definitely return.

I have been to Parlor a few times and regret it every time. The service is TERRIBLE, which is a shame because the drink menu is great and so is the dessert. We live down the street and avoid this place because of the service, despite having a great outdoor space and fun atmosphere.

Parlor Pizza has an energetic atmosphere where many young adults frequent. The food was very good. I only gave this restaurant three stars for overall experience because of my experience with the hostesses. I made a reservation to meet a friend after work at 7pm on a Wednesday night. I arrived 30 minutes early. The restaurant was very busy, but I wanted to let them know I was there so that if I could be seated early I could. One hostess looked me up and down and gave me a dirty look. I was coming from work so I was not dress down. Then instead of telling me they could not seat me until my friend arrived, they just told me to wait to the side. When my friend arrived at 7, I came back up to the hostesses to tell them our party was complete and they said I should see another hostess if I wanted to sit outside and the wait would be at least 45 minutes! I had a reservation. They could have told me to go to another hostess 30 min ago if I wanted to sit outside. So I said we could dine indoors. They had us wait more to see if they had anything available despite that I did have a reservation for 7pm and had been waiting. I would have liked to go to the bar, but I didn't feel like I could. I spoke with a few people and this seems like waiting after a reservation time is normal and they do give you look of judgments if for some reason they do not like what you are wearing.

I would like to thank the manager for making my fiancés 39 1/2 birthday special. He was able to make space for my party on the roof deck during a busy time. My fiancé and I truly would like to thank him for accommodating us. We also like to give thanks to our waitress, she was fabulous and we also love her unique name. Thank you once again.

Kind regards,

Food and drinks were excellent, and not too expensive for downtown prices. Service was okay- it was busy so we did have to wait a while for food and drinks, and drinks seemed to have gotten forgotten about a couple times. Overall not bad though.

We were celebrating a going away dinner for a friend. From the moment of checking the hostess was friendly and greeted us warmly even though it was insanely busy. I had requested a table as close to the window as possible since the weather nice and she accommodated our request with a table that was half in and half out. It was perfect!!!

Our service was great during dinner and as I observed how busy the restaurant was the entire staff from front of house to back of house were all in a unified sequence. I was amazed that it was all under control and that everything was run so smoothly and effectively.

The food was delicious, ambiance of the patio is great when weather permits and would recommend for small or large groups. Can be casual of dressed up everyone was a little bit of both w attire.

Enjoyed lunch here with friends. We had 2 infants in our party, who were well-received despite the bar scene. Only disappointment was the push we felt to leave. Our server was great but appeared eager to flip the table, and the bussers seemed to be at our table every 5 minutes grabbing whatever we didn't need anymore. One busser stood next to my husband and watched my husband box his food so he could take the plate. It felt awkward. We didn't feel invited to linger and chat after we paid, it was clear they wanted us out.

This was my 4th or 5th time here but my first time sitting upstairs. It was basically a bar upstairs and we had two 8 year olds with us. Personally not the greatest environment for that age. The waitress seemed really frazzled and was pretty absent. We had ordered the kale and artichoke dip and when we asked for more bread she said it was a $3 charge. I said that was fine but then the bread never came and our pizzas came out. When I asked her to cancel the bread she said she couldn't because it was already in. Luckily one of the managers delivered the pizza and I asked that it be canceled. I respect that Friday at 6:30 isn't ideal for children, but seating us in the bar and then basically ignoring us isn't great either.

From the moment we walked in the door our experience was fabulous. The host was friendly and sat us fairly quickly for a busy Saturday night. We had a great outdoor table and our server was super friendly and patient as we tried to decide what to order- there were so many delicious pizzas- it was tough to decide which ones to get! The food arrived and it did not disappoint. We also had decadent desserts, and never once felt rushed to leave. We’ll definitely be back soon!

Love the hearth-stone pizzas here. Combine with great beer. They also have a great brunch bloody Mary bar. Lots of energy, outdoor seating. A bit loud for me, but the millennial crowd should not have a problem.

Pizza and appetizers are very good and fun to share with a group around the tall tables. However, this restaurant is extremely noisy with many guests unaware that they are inside at a restaurant. That is a shame because the service and food are worth a visit.

My only complain was the pizza, which should be the best part of a pizza place. The cheese and toppings literally fell off the pizza when I picked it up, making it a mess to eat. Maybe it was undercooked or that's just their recipe, but it was difficult to eat.
