    Cute place but was seated in the very back booth next to the piled up Christmas decorations. Food was ok but very slow to arrive. I think the server forgot to put app order in. Salad came before app. Server was working too many tables maybe? Hawaiian pizza and Brussels sprouts salad were good. Baked ricotta app so so.

    Loved the food, but it took a while to receive the check and the water glasses were empty for much of the meal. I get it, it was New Year's Eve so we'll give it a pass and will return. The food was great, I think the server might have been a little overwhelmed. The lack of attention didn't affect the amount of the tip as someone who was working a shift deserved a pass IMO.

    The restaurant was fairly empty when I got there. I was greeted immediately by who I assume was the manager who walked over to me from the bar. He seated me right away, and the waiter came over shortly there after to take my drink order. The waiter was extremely friendly and personable. My experience overall was great, the food was great. I will definitely be back to this location.

    Disappointing visit. The restaurant and bar were nearly empty on a nice late afternoon Sunday. My frustration was the lack of ingredients to make at least three of their signature pizzas. I did not get what I wanted but made the best of it. The two pizzas my family received were not fully cooked. The cheese was still in it's shredded form in the middle. I'm a Detroiter and know the style well. I have eaten at both of the ES locations in charlotte several times and had great food. This was not their best presentation. Its frustrating because I was looking forward to a good treat before a show in uptown. There is no ES near my home, I only get the occasional opportunity to visit. P.S. the tap beer was lukewarm so we switched to can beer.

    I got the famous Emily Burger. This burger is an orchestra that performs the most beautiful song to your taste buds. The concert starts with the soft and buttery pretzel bun and dry aged beef patties, then the white cheddar cheese chimes in. While those ingredients continue to play, the beloved Emmy Sauce joins in and brings everything together. Seriously, this is the greatest burger on the planet and it's not even close!

    We had a great time at the restaurant due to the atmosphere and vibe, but were disappointed with the food. The service wasn't bad, but the food was not appetizing. They said people come for the pizza but stay for the burgers but my fiancé stated that it was the worst burger he ever tasted and immediately sent it back. Truthfully we would have been better off ordering from a pizza delivery service.

    Our first visit to Emmy Squared and the food was delicious. We were seated right away and ordered drinks. We ordered a lemon drop martini and skinny margarita. We had to wait a little because the bartender was busy talking and then she went and cleaned anc setup a table. When our drinks arrived we ordered the Brussel sprout salad and a pizza with bacon peppers onion. The salad was so good and all the flavors blended togather well. The salad was big enough to share them our pizza arrived it was wonderful , thick crust but crispy , the red sauce tasted flavorful and the veggies and meat was great. The drinks were not good the margarita tasted like straight tequila and the lemon drop tasted like it was made from a mix. We will go back but will drink beer and wine with our meal.

    We really enjoyed Emmy’s Squared Pizza on Central Avenue last year so we were surprised that the service at the South End location did not live up to the service on Central Avenue. We were greeted by a host with a slight attitude and had a very moody waiter. We are very understanding of waiters and what they may deal with during and outside of work, but the service did negatively impact our overall experience. Nonetheless, food was great!

    Was delicious. Never had Michigan style pizza before, it’s different from the expected brick oven/flat preparedl it’s like a delicious crispy focaccia. Had the margarita plus a Brussels Proust salad. Very nice.

    Emmy's Squared is the best Detroit style pizza I have ever had...and that is saying something as I am from Michigan. Just keep in mind, if it says it has a chili on it, be prepared for it to be super warm. The pepperoni here is the kind the curls and gets crispy, which, in my opinion is superb. The crust is quite incredible as it offers a cruchy experience, while being soft and doughy. You really cannot find a better pizza.
