The pizza is mostly bread, not enough toppings. Slow service and too much noise. Expensive for what you get.

Emmy Squared never disappoints when it comes to quality. The food is consistent and tasty, and this visit was no different. Our server was very attentive and friendly as well. Brought my in-laws here because it is one of my favorite pizzas. They loved it and wish they had one in California.

Party of four went for a casual birthday dinner. Nothing special, just dinner. The food was good, the Brussels sprout salad was amazing. Le Big Matt was good, maybe not the best in town but right up there. Where it all came crashing down was the service. It was abysmal. Forgotten appetizer, which we finally had to ask about, was blamed on a new ticket system. Saw the waiter about once every twenty minutes, even when the table was out of water. All out. All in all, a forgettable experience. I will give it another try, but only one more evening like this will keep me away for good.

We arrived right at 6:30 for our reservation for 6 people. We waited until 7 to be seated. There was a party of 6 with a 6:45 reservation and a party of 6 with a 7pm reservation that both came in after us yet were seated before us. It took 3 times going back up to the hostess stand asking when our table would be ready. The food was fine but the service was slow as well after we were finally seated.

Overall our experience was good. Our server was so nice and helpful. Food was great. Zero complaints there, and honestly we had a great meal. Our only complaint revolved around the hosting staff. We made a reservation and requested to sit outside. When we arrived we waited 20 minutes before being seated at an inside table next to a large group without any discussion. We politely asked to sit outside as requested and were told that "Management told us to not sit anyone else outside because of the bugs". My husband explained the entire reason we came there was for outside seating and we would still like to sit outside at our own risk. Once outside, there were no issues with bugs/pests of any kind. There were 3 other groups sat outside right after us. I'm not making assumptions, but the handling of the situation felt as if the hosting staff or someone simply didn't want to deal with seating anyone outside. If it truly was a management instruction, we never spoke to a manager to clarify. The reason just seemed like absolute nonsense after we got out there.

Three of us went on a Saturday at 1:30 for lunch. Sat outside and had a delightful time. Of course the weather was amazing which you definitely cannot count on in Nashville in July which added to the experience.

We ordered the cauliflower appetizer and 3 pizzas knowing that we would bring half of it home. Everything was great.

Our waitress was amazing and gave us wonderful suggestions off the menu. We had the chopped cheese waffle friends, the garlic cheese bread, and the Colony(2)pizza. They were all wonderful, but the pizza was just the best. Pepperoni, jalapeños, and honey as toppings may sound weird, but it works perfectly together. Definitely will be going back.

We had the wrong order brought out, but we rolled with it as we didn’t have time to change it. The server was completely unfamiliar with the menu and drink list. It was a birthday and we were pretty disappointed. The server disappeared for a long time and left us hanging.

The overall experience at Emmy Squared was good. Our Colony pizza and cheesy breadsticks were amazing! My only complaint is that we had to wait ~45 minutes after our reservation time to be sat. I know this happens sometimes but it's just poor management. The young girls running the hostess stand were apologetic and nice but, there was no manager in sight to help handle the situation. I'd consider going to a different location next time.

Our server was really kind and meant well but the cocktails were a complete service experience failure. She forgot to bring the right one the first time and once we got the right ones, none of us liked our drinks. We still paid for them too and no one drank them. The food was amazing as always. I would still recommend, just maybe not on a Friday or Saturday night. I usually go during the lunchtime/afternoon.

So after my review some one contact me saying I would receive a 50 gift certificate for the bad service. I sent my email like instructed and over a month later nothin! Again horrible horrible service! It was bad enough in the restaurant but again..... Love your food but will not be back. Horrible horrible service!!!

We were the only table in the bar when we sat down. Ordered two margarita pizzas one took 1.5 hours the second came an hour after than. The server kept saying your pizza is coming and when asked what happened she said their chef was out on maternity leave. I’m happy the guy was able to take time off and commend Emmy this but come on! The kitchen should not fall apart and their manager should of stopped by our table. Food was good but the service that night was 👎👎

Detroit style pizza is a great splurge on occasion, and this one did not disappoint. The highly touted fries were very good, but short of excellent. The Caesar salad was well portioned but somewhat average otherwise. Service was the big problem. It was not very attentive and not terribly helpful with the menu.
