    Good food, a little overpriced. Also the fried chicken is basically just a chicken cutlet chopped up.

    They didn't have their vegan cheese, so that was a bummer, and they could use spinach as an option for their build-your-own 'za, but we the pizza we had was delicious. The staff is so kind and attentive and professional. Awesome. I wish they kept the lights a bit dimmer, and the noise level was a bit higher than I'd prefer, but overall, a good experience. The staff contributed to that immensely.

    Pizza was excellent. Mostly a takeout restaurant, so the atmosphere in the restaurant itself was a little transitory. But the food, as always, was good.

    The good Paulie pizza was buttery and delicious! The caramelized onions pIred so well with the white sauce and sausage with the gouda cheese giving it another layer of flavor. My favorite was actually the delicious drinks that Sheila recommended. The honey peach smash was sweet and summery while the pomegranate margarita was tangy and slightly tart.

    Awful service, 0 attentiveness from the servers and no input when we had questions on menu items. Manager totally realized this and gave us 2 free salads and a dessert while we were walking out so that was much appreciated. Such a shame because the pizza is truly awesome

    Emmy’s was fine. The service was remarkably bad, I think because our server was also handling their to go orders. We sat down and ordered a drink & app, but the server literally did not come back for another hour to check in on us to get our entree order. Once we ordered our pizzas, one was great & the other a soupy mess on top. Overall, not worth the $100 tab

    Disappointment… for the 4th time. My family has enjoyed Emmy in nyc so much and we’ve tried the Shaw, Navy Yard, and Alexandria locations all which have been a massive let downs. I will not be coming back to another Emmy squared again. My burger was barely cooked!! The staff didn’t seem to care that it wasn’t cooked at all. Whoever is managing or running the ships over there is terrible. Either close the doors or sharpen up. Shameful.

    The ordering service was very confusing. We could order food via the QR code but had to order drinks through the server. But then you could not make modifications to food orders on the QR code. We had one persons food order arrive 10 minutes before another persons food arrive. And then the final two peoples food arrived 10 minutes after that. Additionally the drinks all came with the last persons food so the first two people finished their food before they got drinks. We like the food so will come back to give another chance, but service was bad

    go earlier on in the evening - if you go at 8:30 when we did every interaction was that the kitchen was closing, last call for the bar and then pushing you along. it would have been more relaxing for take away and the pizza was good but was only warm anyway eating there

    Best pizza in the area. Ingredients are high quality and fresh. Menu isn't too large so they can focus on doing a few things really well. Carry out is good and the pizza is easily reheated in the oven. Love coming here and will be back.
