Connie's Pizza in Bridgeport
I made the reservation a week in advance. I received a phone call asking about the purpose of the reservation. I informed the Rep that it was a birthday celebration. I was told that if I wanted to bring my own cake, there was a $20 charge. I wasn’t too bothered since I had no intention on bringing in a cake.
My reservation was for 7. When we got to the table they only had 6 seats. They had us walk back to the front desk and wait for them to fix it. I was still OK. We walked back to the table and they squeezed another chair right where both tables meet. It was uncomfortable for my niece because she either had to squeeze her legs in one table or open them wide to fit each leg under a separate table. Both table legs were directly in front of her legs and they thought this was OK?!?!
We waited about 45 minutes for bread/butter. The waiter wanted to take our orders first which made no sense to me. I hadn’t eaten since breakfast and at that point I was irritated.
The food was good and the service got better midway through dinner, but it will be a while before I return.
We always have the same table and server. It is a group of 8 and we have appetizers and pizza. Pizza is good but servers dropped pizza’s on the table and did not serve as they are supposed to. That is biggest complaint. Not our main guy but the young servers who bring out the pizza. They are supposed to serve the pizza but did not.
Connie’s is a great restaurant! We had a large party and I had preordered all of our pizzas the day before which they had suggested we do. We were treated so well, with Chef Peter coming to greet us when we first got there, then checking up on us multiple times during our dinner. The pizzas were delicious! Our server was attentive and fun. I will definitely have more events at Connie’s!
Neighborhood go to place. Always fun lively and busy!
It was very loud in there. Too me food really didnt have a taste. Pizza had to much oregano. But would try them again.
Had a nice dinner with the family! Had some appetizer salad and pizza! All of which were good. Our server Emily was outstanding very friendly and aware of our need before we even asked. One of the best we’ve very had there!
We arrived early for our reservation and they promptly seated out large group. Food come out quickly and was awesome! Lots leftover for the next day.
Had lunch with our family there on Saturday. Food & service was great! Not crowded at that time of day, so noise level was low. Easy to visit. We love Connie's!
Wouldn't recommend for a birthday gatherings. They charge a service fee for bringing outside cake. Ridiculous! That's a first, never been to a restaurant where they charge $20 for that. NEXT!
We had a good time for the 6 of us. Would go again if in the area.
Our server was excellent. Took great care of us and stopped by to check on our drinks or we needed anything else. Very friendly.
As always great pizza. It always good to reserve a table since they tend to get very busy in weekends.
Awesome pizza. The best! It’s real nice inside.
While the food was great, the service was horrible. As i will be contacting the better business bureau about the service that was receive and false advertising on the table.
Everything was good. California Turkey Burger delicious. Food a little slow coming out but overall good evening.
Well worth the hour and fifteen minutes we drive from Indiana. We always have to stop at Connie’s when coming to Chicago.
Pizza and service were great.
Connie’s is always a Great Place to gather with Family when in Chicago. Can accommodate large groups and there Bread & Oil with a Beer is Fantastic 👍
Good just wish the waitress was more attentive with us! Overall great food!
Todos los platillos realmente delicioso!!! Excelente servicio!!! Y el lugar muy tranquilo!
Thank you for your outstanding service liz. My sons birthday was well enjoyable. Thank you Connie's food was awesome, staff was great!!
Delicious! We were staying at the Hyatt Regency McCormick and wanted to try some authentic Chicago deep dish. The pizza and house salad were amazing! All combined with some red wine - it was overall a perfect casual Chicago -styled dinner
It was pleasant, there was a miss communication where our youngest had her bottle tossed out it seams. After I asked if anything could be done she handled the issue sufficiently. It didn’t ruin the evening, that started off wonderful thanks to the hassle free booking that OpenTable provided. Check in was also a breeze; knowing a Friday night would be busy we arrived 10 early with more than half of our party which may have made it easy.
Been going there since 1977 - at their original location and they never disappoint me. Love the place.
Always a great place for a group to go. Good is good. It was busy for a Sunday night so service not slow but still worked out fine.
Wait was very very long.
Fun times. Waitress was friendly and helpful.
Family from out of state
Food was great, but unfortunately service was very slow and it wasn't even that busy. We had to get up from our table a couple of times to find our server and get assistance.
Have eaten in Connie’s for over 18 yesrs and I have Never been disappointed
I don't know what happened to Connie's, but this was bad, start to finish, on a Wednesday night before a Sox game when they should be on their game. Starts at the bar while waiting for one of the numerous empty tables on the patio. Beer special worded 'Until Supplies Last' which I still can't quite comprehend. The bartender said they ran out of the special beer over the weekend. Why couldn't they change it on Monday or Tuesday? We pre-order a pizza and get seated. I asked the hostess for a booster seat which she fails to bring so I go inside to find one. We order a family salad with the bucket of dressing on the side. Comes out 15 minutes later with dressing on it. Waitress takes it back, comes out 5 minutes later, says it will come out in 2 minutes. 10 minutes later my wife walks in to see what's happening and finds our salad and server at the bar. 5 minutes later, the pizza arrives rendering a starter salad pretty useless. It's Connie's so the pizza was pretty good - got to give them that. Before bill arrives, my wife show's the 'Did We Do Something Wrong' email coupon for $15 off $30. Waitress couldn't comprehend what to do with it so we had to explain to write down the code. She rings the tab and only presents the final signature page without the breakdown of items ordered. Every single function in the restaurant failed at something - kind of unbelievable. So Connie's, next time you wonder if you did something wrong, just read this and figure out how to manage the restaurant again.
Best pizza in Chicago!
Connie's is the best restaurant around! The pizza is great but there are other tasty offerings as well.
Food was excellent. Service was disjointed. A committee of servers for some reason. Since multiple people waited on us drink refills were neglected.
Experience, food & server was great, but didn’t get the points credit for making my reservation through open table
I had over 20 people coming to have a family gathering for Pre-Christmas party. My husband had said to try Connie's and I am so glad we did. We had the best service, best food, and the best time! The waitress took the picture of our group for us and it was so much fun to be there. I will definitely go there again and have parties there again!
A must while in Chicago.
Upon my arrival, the hostess was rude. She looked overwhelmed on a busy Saturday evening. Anyways, didn’t bother with her, everyone else was great especially our server Susan. She made everything better. Great deep dish pizzas!
The food is good that’s the only thing it makes me come back but the service needs a lot of improvement.
In a city know for it's pizza, this has it all. Thin, deep and my fav the original. Crisp light airy crust great toppings. Salad and bruchetta were delicious.
