I love Fieldworks beer and was delighted that it was on tap for dinner. The pizza was great, too!

It’s loud here. There’s little ambiance. Service is generally solid. Pizza and wings and broccoli are consistently good. Nothing fancy here but good pizza.

We had a large party of 10 and the restaurant accommodated us beautifully. They were really flexible as we needed to move our reservation up an hour and decreased the number in our party. They did it without hassle. Our server was wonderful — very knowledgeable about the specialty cocktails and menu items. Had both deep dish and thin crust pizza. Both were excellent. Highly recommend and definitely would be back.

Best gluten free pizza I've ever had, did not feel like a compromise at all. Oven roasted broccolini was simple and perfect, exactly the right balance of crispy charred crowns and tender (but not too soft) stems.

Celebrating a birthday. Cool atmosphere, food was delicious. Service was friendly and accommodating. Parking was a tad hard, but that’s expected on a Friday night in the Town.

Came for the Oakland restaurant week special. Great food at a great price! We paid $10 each for a salad & small pizza which was perfect for lunch. We both ordered different items to try multiple dishes. Thin crust pizza was tasty. Thick crust was good too but we both normally prefer thin crust but thought it was the perfect opportunity to try it again. Plenty to eat. Had leftovers for next day. Would probably come here again.

We've been to this restaurant several times and have had a great experience. On this visit we were very disappointed which was unfortunate because it was a birthday celebration. The host was disengaged and the service was mediocre, at best. The pizza was overcooked (tough bottom crust.) Will think twice about coming again.

The thin crust was quite good. I appreciate that our waitress offered to split the pizza. Overall, we enjoyed our experience and will return.

Dark evening atmosphere was a little too dark, parking was a nightmare as no space and their parking lot was full as it’s only a few spaces.

I had a great experience at the Star on Grand. My date and I were two of the only people in the restaurant, so of course our food came out extremely fast, the staff were very accommodating considering we came in 30 minutes before closing and everything was absolutely delicious.

Excellent salads. Little Star deep dish pizza and Vegetarian pizza are both excellent. Vanilla gelato with chocolate sauce very tasty. Tiara was an excellent server. Warm, welcoming, nicely decorated room. Sat inbthe back away from the door and the bar. More quiet and less drafty.

Probably my least favorite pizza in the neighborhood. We love Boot and Shoe, but it's a difficult place to go with an antsy 1-year-old. The Star is very kid friendly, but the pizza just isn't very good. We agreed that it would have been more enjoyable to simply get pizza from Slicer and eat at home.

I had heard about the pizza and had wanted to go. We went for a birthday celebration - 4 adults, 2 pizzas, 1 beer , 1 wine, 2 appetizers - oh - they charged for bread....

The pizza was good, however overpriced. For the price I would prefer to go to a restaurant where you felt as if the quality and creativity of the food was worth it.

Pros: great server - they got one of our pizzas wrong -and gave us the replacement at no additional charge.
