You should really reconsider your policy on no combative sports especially when it is literally only the live sports that are on.

Fun modern pizzeria and more. Great pizza, burgers and salads. Service was great. Atmosphere was stunning. But the secret was the taco waffle cone ice cream. Delish!

Pizza was sub par. Drinks were extremely good especially the margarita but not good enough to make up for the poor pizza. Dessert was also good but once again the pizza wasn't the best.

Super freaking good!! The ambiance was the best part but the “Burrata Be Kidding Me” pizza is so good!! The amount of arugula on it is slightly surprising at first but it ended up being phenomenal.

Place is nice. Very large space. Pizzas were good and well as burger and came out quick. Good drink menu. Only downside was our waitress. We were ignored and saw her standing around most times so she wasn’t busy. Never got refills on pops or asked if adults wanted another round. Hopefully just an off night for her. Little pricey in general but not for the river north area. Would go again.

Lively and cool place to hang out with my 10/13 year old girls before a Bulls game. We had a blast.

Went with family. Easily one of the best pizzas I have ever had in my life. Wait staff were attentive and kind. $9 desserts were huge so be prepared to share.

We brought a couple children and they are not accommodating to children at all. I asked them to make us a grilled cheese, charge us for the cheeseburger and put cheese on a bun and they said no modifications to anything. We had to stop at McDonald’s after for our 5 year old because their menu has nothing kid friendly if pizza isn’t an option and they don’t have a kids menu. It’s pretty obvious they don’t want children there which sucks because pizza places are usually pretty kid friendly. We won’t return.

Pizza was great. Salads were not. “Cauliflower” salad was a bunch of frisee with a few very thin random pieces of cauliflower. Service was meh. My biggest complaint though was the lighting. It was such dark, weird light I had to use the flashlight on my phone to see the menu and my daughter got a migraine. Turn up the lights, even just a little, or switch out the bulbs!

We got to the restaurant 20 minutes early and were told, with condescension, they would not be able to seat us until closer to our reservation time and to go to the bar. There we noted 3 completely open and set tables and a 4th being set up. They still made us wait over 15 minutes and then just gave us one of the open tables that we had been standing by the entire time. So frustrating.
Later our waitress was no where to be found, so finally my husband got up and went to the bar to order a drink on his tab from earlier. The waitress then had the gall to come over to us and tell us we can’t order from the bar and that we would get in trouble with her manager if he saw us. What?! You were the one who wasn’t doing your job, so your manager should get mad at you. Don’t try and give false threats to your customer just because you want a bigger tip. Just do your job.
Poor service from hostess to waitress.

The food was delicious. BUT the dining room chairs were horrendously uncomfortable. I don’t mind bar stools but these were not comfortable. Not going to have networking meetings here in the future.

Why is this place hyped up so much? The tables are too close together, the food is trash, the people are disgusting... I don’t get it. Pizza Hut is better. Waste of money

Parlor is an all-time favorite. Great food, robust drink menu, and comfortable ambiance. Usually a bit louder and darker, but perfect for a date, meeting colleagues, or gathering with friends for a happy hour.

So over all experience was really good, I asked the waiter if they have any other crust to which she told me they dont have but offered me another close by restaurant.We did stick to pizza parlor.
Ordered mozzarella appetizer. Sauce was great but the cheese was luke warm . Still it was delicious.
Ordered a custom pizza. Came out hot , the ingredients were falling apart because of being thin crust , but we enjoyed it.
Lastly we ordered go nuts dessert which was mind blowing.

So overall i was satisfied and will recommend it to others.
