Good for kids because it’s loud and spacious with a good kid pizza option not on menu.

Poor grades are because we made a reservation, and explicitly noted on the reservation it was for outdoor seating.
When we arrived (10 minutes in advance of reservation time), we were told that reservations were for indoor seating only, and it would be 35-45 minutes for an outdoor table.
That was not stated anywhere in the reservation system...

I love their style of pizza. The spaces are huge and can get quite loud, but it was pretty tame when we went during the week. The pizza toppings are unique and also traditional. Everything I’ve tried I’ve liked.

Fried and grilled calamari! Antipasto salad, caesar salad, margherita pizza, honey boo boo pizza, burrata and meat pizzas, too! Marta was a wonderful server for our large group, including grandparents. Food was amazing, as always, and can't wait to go back.

great place and best ambience. we celebrated my daughters 14th birthday here with 8 girls. immediately almost every person i encountered had a lot of attitude towards us. first when i called earlier that day to see if we can sit outside, when we arrived, the hostess stand, and our waitress. our waitress seemed bothered and annoyed with every request. water and napkin request is not a big deal. the guys that brought our our food were the nicest. we were first seated outside at the table that is immediately next to the bar. the adults at the table next to us were so drunk and they kept knocking stools over that almost hit the girls a few times. they were loud and obnoxious, which is fine, but i asked to be moved to a different table because didn't think this would be the best experience for the girls. i realize this is a bar, but the restaurant, at 5pm , should be accommodating to all guests, without attitude. the hostess rolled her eyes so much when i asked for the change.
the girls had the best time, the food and atmosphere was perfect. great place, just wish the staff didn't have to be so extremely rude.

Great food for a sports bar / pizza place. Healthy options we tried included excellent goat cheese and beet salad, hummus, avocado toast. Great outdoor and semi-outdoor (large open windows) seating when the weather is nice.

Great outside patio. Not so great patio if you have young children. Their policy is no strollers on the patio, which is not consistently enforced. But we were some of the unlucky that were not allowed to bring our stroller onto the patio. When I spoke to the staff to confirm our reservation, they said they had stands for car seats and bassinets. Turns out these stands are only for car seats. We had to put our baby’s bassinet on two chairs, which was not safe and distracting the whole time. Also the stroller park out front is literally a free for all on the street for whomever wants to grab something. I’m surprised there hasn’t been more theft. Sure we could have eaten inside, but then would prefer going to Piece or another spot for pizza. Better food and value.

Hosted a teen bday party & this is a great venue for such an occasion. Fun, rustic, open, popular vibe. We had reservations and were seated right away. Everyone enjoyed their food (pizzas) but of course the dessert tacos are always the main hit! Definitely recommend.

I hosted a brunch for a group of friends who all hadn't met one another, so this was a great spot to meet up & have a blast over brunch. We indulged in the birthday cake waffle & nitro coffee to kick things off, had an appetizer of brussel sprouts , & the menu covered a wide array of dietary needs.

Service was okay. Despite a reservation we waited 20 minutes. We had little kids and a great grandmother. They did not have a comfortable place to wait. I was called three times to confirm my reservation. They kept calling despite my first conversation with confirmation. I booked it as a birthday. I told the waitress it was a child’s bday. They brought the desserts without a candle. I asked and they never returned with a bday candle or apology.
They should have remedied that situation. A few of the pizzas had burnt crusts. We mentioned but no one talked to us about that. Kids loved the desserts but overall it was not managed well.
Hard to recommend a place that had Disappointing issues.

We came to Parlor with a relatively large party of 10. Our server was fantastic, continuing to make sure that everyone had what they needed even though the restaurant was slammed. She even split the bill for us at the end which is never easy for a party of that size but was much appreciated.

Food and ambiance is great but staff and management could use some help on professionalism and how to treat their guests. This is coming from someone who has previously worked 8 years in the hospitality industry.

I was there with my family for my 14 year old and 2 year olds’ birthdays. The food was amazing and the dessert was fun. Unfortunately we went during March madness and the noise level was more than any other bar/restaurant I’ve ever been to (maybe even any concert - and I’ve been to a lot!) I would go again during the week, in nice weather, outside.
