Pizzeria
With our first location in Williamsburg, Brooklyn in 2016, Emmy Squared Pizza is part of the Pizza Loves Emily family of restaurants, co-founded by Emily Hyland and executive chef Matthew Hyland, with partners Howard Greenstone and Ken Levitan. Offering quality ingredients and deliciously unique toppings, our signature Detroit-style pizza is marked by its square shape, crispy bottom, fluffy dough, cheesy frico crust, and signature sauce stripes. Our famed double-stack burger, the Le Big Matt, was named ‘#1 Best Burger in Nashville’ by The Tennessean, voted one of ‘The Best New Burgers In NYC’ by Gothamist, and listed as one of the ‘20 Best Burgers in NYC’ by The Infatuation. The menu also highlights a selection of approachable salads and sandwiches served on pretzel buns.

Gaining critical claim and an ever-growing cult following, we have expanded the Emmy Squared brand with nine locations across New York City, Nashville, and Philadelphia with plans to expand nationally.

    This is the 2nd time our family group of 1 1 has visited this restaurant after making a reservation for a GROUP OF 11 and were not seated together. The first time was one year ago for our 19 year old twins birthday celebration. I gave the restaurant the benefit of the doubt the first time because of pandemic circumstances and things just opening back up. Last night, no excuses. We were not seated together, there were absolutely no apologies made and no attempt to help adjust the situation. Not once did our server smile nor did she act even slightly personable. Oddly this was the exact experience we had last year. Now that it has happened twice I will never go back under any circumstances nor will I miss the opportunity to tell anyone not to go to this sad excuse for a restaurant. If that is the general type of behavior that is tolerated by the restaurant management I'm not at all sure how they are still open. I assure you it is not the food. Super limited menu, very pricey for pizza bread and deep fried chicken and a decline in quality from a year ago. Obviously they are cutting corners but definitely not cutting prices. For 11 of us WITH A 20% UNDESERVED TIP AUTOMATICALLY ADDED to our bill, the total was $300!!!!!! Pizza bread my friends, no talent or gourmet skills involved. A hefty $37 for a pitcher of sangria. I didn't think the price was out of line until we were served with what I would call a mini pitcher at best. My daughter serves at a very upscale restaurant in Bloomington and she was very surprised with the price. By far the most offensive service I think I have ever received, and to think there was a $48. tip automatically included. No wonder our stone cold face waitress didn't bother to concern herself with our satisfaction. I hope I've said enough to convince anyone considering to go to this hotdog stand, to save their money and hit a drive thru for better hospitality. Almost forgot they serve their sodas in the plastic bottles. High class!

    Our waitress was friendly and pleasant. However, she would disappear for long periods of time. It took forever for to get our initial drink order although she brought us menus and introduced herself as soon as we were seated. The food was DELICIOUS! And the atmosphere was fun and lively with a view of the outdoor patio.

    The food was good but the service was not. The hostess was not very friendly. They brought was water initially, but it took so long to come back for our drink order everyone was ready to order the entire meal. We also wanted to sit outside but they weren’t serving outside on a Saturday evening.

    Reservation was at 6:30. Got our drinks right away. Waited 1 1/2 hours and Got r cheese sticks and a salad . After over 2 hours and 15 min. we were told r pizza burned and that was it. The restaurant should should have not charged us a thing… it was a shame because the food is delicious and it was r 3rd visit! We won’t be returning. There is a serious problem in the kitchen. 2 hours and 15 minutes snd no pizza!!

    Once we were seated, waited 15 minutes for a server to come over. Placed a 2 pizza order right away and an hour and 15 minutes later, no pizza and we were told it would be a while still. Ended up leaving because we had soccer tickets. This is the 2nd time this has happened to us there. We wanted to give it another chance because we understand things happen. Won’t be back.

    Drinks came slow and were just ok, we ordered food and 45 mins later they told us that we ordered was out. They did comp the one dish and were apologetic. Server was ok but we never got to order another drink. All in all kind of a blah experience. The foods always been great for takeout. We will stick with that from now on.

    Our server was very disengaged with our group. Barely checked on us at all and forgot drinks. The restaurant was not busy at all and we were told they weren’t taking any more reservations or walk ins. Which is understandable if they were short staffed, but our server just was not attentive at all. Food was great as always!

    Well, let’s start with I loved the atmosphere!!! There is a back inner courtyard that connects Emmy Squared with the neighboring restaurants and it’s really lovely and inviting. Family loved the thick, airy crust pizza. I thought it was meh 🫤 Caesar salad fair. Chicken tenders were overcooked. Think it was a chicken breast cut into strips. They were not on the menu but I had seen them on the online menu so not sure what’s up with that. Service was just ok. 6 out of 10. Worth a try at least for a drink if you’re in NuLu!

    We were seated in THE Worst table which is the only reason for the lower rating. The to-go pick up area MUST be moved. If you are seated in that first booth, ask to be moved. Food took a bit long to get but it was really busy and somewhat understandable. Pizza was great!!!

    The host wasn’t happy being at work! He never greeted us or smiled. The waitress bought us warm water. I ordered unsweetened tea for sugar but were told the restaurant didn’t have any. Our waitress forgot our appetizers and was snippy with me when I said all I wanted was our food after waiting 30 minutes without any exception to why we hadn’t received our food. We ordered the sausage and Carmelita’s onion with Gouda cheese. There wasn’t any sausage on the pizza! My husband and I decided to leave and never return. We both were very disappointed.

    Way too loud. We waited 40 minutes for a salad. 40 minutes for breadsticks. Our pizza was not entered into the system due to an internet issue. We had to leave because we had a show to go to. They didn't even offer a discount for the terrible service. The salad and breadsticks were delicious, but not worth the hassle.

    Literally didn’t even eat here. When we were seated, we were given 3 dirty plates. They had crumbs and pizza sauce on them. After showing the server, he rolled his eyes and gave us new plates…which were even dirtier than the first set. We brought it to our servers attention and he proceeded to throw a third, even dirtier set of plates on the table and yelled “see if those will work for you.” I don’t know why he kept giving us dirty plates, but we just decided to get up and leave.

    The food was delicious. But the noise level was distractingly high and the service very slow. We try to be mindful of COVID impact on staffing, but even before the restaurant was busy, service was slow. The food was delicious. Super creative and flavorful, so foodies will enjoy. We had a mix of pizza and burgers at our table, and we all were very happy with our meals. The pomegranate margarita was also a winner.

    Pizza was obviously, visibly burnt (charred). Wish I had snapped a photo to post because it was pretty crazy. Can’t believe the kitchen would even send that out…I would be embarrassed. A better server would have noticed and taken care of the problem without the customer having to ask. The server was otherwise ok, and the food that was prepared correctly was decent. Main reason to go is for the Nulu marketplace environment IMO.

    We were one of the finally reservations of the evening. When we arrived it took almost 20 minutes to get seated not because they were busy but because there wasn’t a clean table to seat us. The hostess was the one who finally cleaned a table so we could be seated. She then also became our server which was odd since we saw a lot of what appeared to be employees walking around an almost empty restaurant. We ordered a pizza which was good, but the burger and chicken sandwich we also ordered were both over done to the point of being inedible. Through entire meal all of the tables around us remained dirty while the staff was standing by the bar chatting. We had to get up to request our check and even though the burger and sandwich sat mostly untouched there was never a question about the food or our experience.

    We had a reservation for mother’s day, were seated promptly, but the restaurant was so understaffed, it took forever to place our order and over an hour to get our food. When it did arrive, two of the five items ordered were incorrect (no cheese on a cheeseburger, olives on the pizza instead of on the side after being told olives could not be put on just half the pizza), and forget getting more drinks or condiments.
