Emmy Squared - South End
We loved our dinner at Emmy Squared! The restaurant has great ambiance and is very clean. Diego was our waiter and he was awesome! We started with the Brussels sprout salad, waffle fries, and cauliflower bites. All were excellent! The pizza was the best part. It's very filling and we were able to split it between three people. The crust reminds me of the Pizza Hut personal pan pizzas in the 90s....so good!!
I have been anxiously waiting to try Emmy pizza after all the amazing reviews and pictures I've seen lately. I finally got to try it tonight and it did not disappoint. The food was great, the atmosphere was cute and perfect for a date, and the service was amazing. Our server Diego H. was quick and attentive throughout the entire service and I hope to see him again when we go back. The only reason I haven't given them 5 stars is because it was a bit pricier than I expected from a pizza joint. We got 1 pizza, 1 salad, and a beer for $60.
Busy, Vibrant atmosphere in the place, but The pizza leaves a lot to be desired. The crust is crunchy and really quite good but after that its totally underwhelming. You could order takeout Detroit Deep Dish from your local jets and it would blow this out of the water.
Great selection of pizza here. I'm not a pizza guy but their menu has options that I will definitely come back for to try them out. I had the mushroom pizza one and it was delicious. My server tonight was Diego H and he was informative and delightful. Thanks, dude. :)
So this was originally going to be two stars but I do want to be fair since there are staffing issues currently. However, we were there for over two hours just to complete a dinner of two apps and a pizza. The app took at least an hour itself. Around 50 minutes or so for the pizza after that. This was clearly not all staffing issues. They put far too much focus on to go orders rather than their customers in house. At one point we were advised to go orders were approaching three hours of wait time. Why even let your location get that overwhelmed when the inside is packed? They did comp one of our apps. The chicken crispers were my favorite thing out the night. The waitress was very friendly and helpful she was working a lot of tables on her own. However, management clearly needs to come up with a better plan of controlling to go orders where it does not effect their in house customers to such extremes. Ill be back to try their burgers at some point and will update this as needed.
