    First time here. Little gem salad with parsnip chips was fabulous, followed by cauliflower arugula pizza was awesome.

    Extremely attentive service. Much more so than I've had here before. Just on the edge of intrusive. But! The food arrived quickly, well plated, and delicious.

    We were thrilled to find a cool place in Jack London with great service and good food options. Love that the pizzas are organic, the chicken is Mary's, etc. Was disappointed that the desserts are made with sub par ingredients – at least teh soft serve definitely is – high fructose corn syrup, artificial colors and flavors, etc. yuck! Would love to see them work on making more and more of the menu clean, healthy and organic. The pizzas are super tasty and so is the little gems salad. Servers are fantastic.

    We stopped by for our first visit, based on a recommendation from a friend. It was EXTREMELY NOISY when we arrived, and we almost left. The hostess was very nice and sat us at a booth on the back wall. It was a little less noisy, and eventually improved as more people left. The problem was that the music was so loud, people had to yell to be heard! Not fun. The menu is not huge, but they had a nice variety to pick from. The pizzas come in one size only, with interesting combinations. The service, I have to say, was outstanding. Our server was nice, friendly, funny, and guided us through the menu like a pro. Be sure to order the cheese curds! I wasn't sure what to expect, but if you like deep-fried mozarella, you will LOVE the curds.

    The pepperoni-mushroom pizza was delicious. The fried cheese curds were addictive. The service was friendly and helpful. Want to go back to try other choices. Too loud inside.

    The pizza isn't bad, but I really hate when restaurants have a "no more than 3 credit cards" policy. I travel around the country with usually around 10 coworkers and we each HAVE to pay our separate bills on our own cards, that's OUR policy. We informed our server of this prior to ordering since we've had issues with other restaurants in the area and the manager worked with us that time, but I don't want to have to negotiate this situation every time we show up, so sadly the place is now blacklisted for our corporate lunches/dinners.

    The salad and Brussels sprouts were good - but the pizza a big disappointment - seemed undercooked even. Maybe on off night or something. Or server, tho, was fabulous and took good care of us.
