Or opt for our tableside option, and have all the ingredients delivered to your table for the whole family to get in on the fun! Kids will wash their hands, use the flour to form the dough, spread their choice of red or white sauce, and build their zae with cheese and toppings of their choice.

    My appointment was at 1pm and I wasn't seated until 1:25, my partner had a deadline so this lunch was supposed to be a quick business lunch but this delayed caused a bit of stress, also you can tell how the service staff was understaff, i know is pretty common for restaurants to have this but for such high prices for the food items i would expect to have proper staffing. I would come back but only if im not pressing with time. thanks!

    We waited for our food for almost an hour which we complained about the first time we visited Summer House. Besides that, the drinks were great and the atmosphere was terrific

    Our waiter Jesse was phenomenal and gave us the best service for my friend’s birthday dinner. He had great recommendations and our food/drinks came out so fast despite a busy Friday night. The perfect girls night!

    My experience was excellent. My waiter got me out in time for the show and helped with recommendations. I loved the non- alcoholic drink I had, post-watermelone. The pizza was eh, I liked the sauce and cheese but wasn't crazy about the crust. I'd probably try something else off the menu. I did get a cinnamon roll cookie that outsdanding. The ambiance was great. I wasn't in the room with the glass ceiling, but I got a nice booth and it was somewhat loud but not horrible. I was very impressed by this restaurant between the atmosphere, the service, and the drinks/food. Overall, I would recommend it. I'd say definitely make a reservation ahead of time (it was packed on a Saturday night). I'd also say it's a bit pricey but worth it for the quality of service, atmosphere, and most of the food/drinks I had outside of the pizza, which others may like.

    Food was good and the bartender helpful. We sat at the bar because the main dining room was way too noisy to carry on a conversation.
