Parlor Pizza Bar - River North
We do not allow ANY outside food or drink in the restaurant.
They sat us in the far back corner when there were multiple tables open throughout the restaurant. The high top we sat ate had the smallest chairs. We were a table with two thick women and two men that were both 6'3-6'4 and over 250 pounds. We aren't small people. When we asked our server if we could switch to a booth she said she would ask. I watched her the whole time and she didn't even go up to the hostess stand. Then we asked a manager and he said he has to check with the hostess stand. Basically he came back and said no because they are trying to get people in and out due to reservations. I understand that but the restaurant was barely 50% full, plus they had a booth that was in our servers section so we wouldn't even have to close out with her. We would just be moving 5 ft to another table. About 10 min after the manager told us no they sat 4 small people at this booth and our server was their server. I work in the industry and we are taught to service the customers that are there first. I normally never write a bad review i just thought it was unacceptable not to move people because they are uncomfortable especially when the restaurant was not that busy. I wouldn't have made a difference for them to move us.
Great service and great food and beverage. Very comfortable set-up during the Covid era. Also - really terrific service to get the game we wanted to watch on multiple TVs in our area. Thank you!
We made reservations on OpenTable. I called and was assured that I was inside and alcohol would be served until 9:00. I arrived, was told reservations were only for outside, and that alcohol stopped at 8:45. I thought it was unfair to be told one thing on the phone and something else in-person.
VERY accommodating and helpful!! Great overall experience!!
Always an excellent experience. Our server was wonderful—really adored her. Ordered our usual hummus with the burrata be kidding me pizza. Everything was delicious. Highly recommend Parlor for a fun afternoon!

Great blacking experience.
Would black here again.
The pizza was so creamy and delicious!! Totally going back to try another pizza. I got the make me Corny and I don’t think I’ve ever had such a yum corn pizza. Staff is sweet. They were wearing masks throughout. Patio dining is cute but on a busy street so yeah in covid can be little risky with people walking past you all the time.
Pizza was good, however it was raining and they only gave us a small umbrella without offering to bring us inside or anything. I ended my evening with a 300$ bill, soaked and freezing.
Incredible desserts! Very accommodating staff. Great place to celebrate a birthday.
Great place to have a good time with friends
Just went for dessert - great service- amazing place
it was lovely as always and great patio for sports watching
Great outdoor space that created a wonderful atmosphere for our dinner with old friends. I loved the chopped salad for the table and the 4 pizzas we ordered were delicious. The Abe Froman continues to be my favorite...might be the sausage or the reference to Ferris Beuller
Great! Amazing atmosphere
we love parlor pizza. the pizza is the best in the city, wait staff is always so friendly, cocktails are delicious (my favorite is the peach marg), and the atmosphere is top tier. highly recommend!
Our server was the bomb
Really good the food, and the service it was amazing, really fast the attention and the food was hot.
Great pizza with a phenomenal location! Service wasn’t the best but they were super busy so I understand we weren’t the main focus of our server having an entire patio to attend to! The food was great, pizza was delicious, appetizers were delicious, drinks were great!!
So impressed by the service. Manager was walking around and made us feel welcome. Food was wonderful and came out quick and accurately. They nicely accommodated our group with kids on a busy Friday night. It was my first time dining at a restaurant since the pandemic began and it was a pleasure to dine at Parlor Pizza Bar outdoors.
Love their pizzas! Great variety + delicious & fresh ingredients. We sat outside on their patio and went after work around 5p. It was not busy, tables were spaced out, and our server was amazing. Drinks were also yummy. Would recommend any time you get stir crazy being cooped up inside because of COVID.
Absolutely love Parlor! It's always delicious (both the food & drinks), fun and the servers and kind and accommodating!
Great food and experience. It was well socially distanced
Our server Alexis was so nice and the food was great!
Great patio service! Felt completely safe with table spacing.
Overall food and ambiance during COVID was good! However, the service left something to be desired. Our server was good, but the busser’s were intense. We could barely even finish our food or even talk and catch up without constantly getting interrupted to have our table cleared off. Someone at our table was asked at least 3 times if they were done with their food within a span of 15 minutes.
Was a great time with great food once again thank you!
Loved my pizza and beer would definitely come back!
Perfect place to gather friends, staff were outstanding!
I’m really glad that, in the neighborhood, this place is open later than the rest.
Awesome place with good food and exceptional dessert !!!!
Our servers weren't the problem - it was management. I had 2 separate tables reserved to celebrate my birthday and we were constantly heckled by 3 different managers. First they moved my one party's table away from us due to drizzling rain (even though they were ok staying) and then scolded us when 2 people at my party were standing at the table instead of sitting (even though it was our table) and we were still at our 6 person limit. I even witnessed a manger watch me walk back to my table after using the restroom. This was my first time at this establishment and instead of being accommodating during tough times (I'm sure the restaurant could use the money), management was incredibly annoying/rude and the environment was very uninviting. I will not be returning nor do I recommend.
Our table was ready on time. Food was brought out quick. It was good. Cocktails were great!
I love parlor- booked my Birthday party there for a nice group of 2 tables of 6. We were NOT treated well with regard to the tables and simply trying to select 2 tables near each other. in their defense, We were also a little bit late for one table, but in the end all arrived. What was wrong - was that they acted like people on Open table actually CHOOSE THE PARTICULAR TABLES THAT THEY WANT- and THIS IS NOT TRUE. We had to ask repeatedly to have 2 tables at least near each other - and saw multiple NO show tables that were open that could have accommodated us but they refused to let us all sit within close range of each other. It was annoying and they made a negative effort to "punish us" because a few people were late. We felt intentionally mistreated because we could have easily gotten tables near each other and they refused to do it. THEY ACTED LIKE THE OTHER RESERVATIONS WERE "TABLE SPECIFIC" - WHICH THEY ARE NOT - AND WERE TELLING US THAT THEY SOMEHOW WERE. I KNOW THAT THIS IS NOT HOW THESE APPS WORK AT ALL AND IT WAS A BIT BAD, RUDE AND NOT COOL.
Dined her for my 12 year olds birthday. We started with a couple of appetizers, and they were really good. Everyone ordered pizza, which was also delicious and quite authentic. The service was fine as well. We will return.
I had a reservation for two and they still didn’t let us dine in.
The food was very good and the service was excellent. We had a wonderful time.
Our waitress Dana was the best!! She was extremely attentive to our large and loud group for many hours. The staff was also very accommodating in allowing our group of 15 to sit at high top tables by each other. Had a great time!
Delicious food, great atmosphere and lots of good options for drinks!
Great food and outstanding service
