I found Mootz through a random Google Maps search as I was coming from out of down and looking for affordable, quality food in the Fox district, and after reading some reviews and visiting the IG page I gave it a chance. I was never contacted to confirm my reservation, and when we got there service was a little confusing, as three different waiters tended to my party of two. We arrived at 5pm and around 5.45 it started getting pretty loud, so we were glad we opted for an earlier dinner. Besides these little things, we had a great time. The cocktails were well made, and the food was really tasty, big portions, and served fairly quickly. The 14" pizza is definitely meant for two people, so if you're not into sharing go for the 10" or you'll need a to-go box. The drinks are a bit on the expensive side, but the bartender seemed well trained in mixology so it makes sense. Overall a good experience, very modern vibe with the traditional flavors of Italian-American food. Would go back and recommend to others.
LOVE this restaurant! The garlic knots are phenomenal and the pizza is thin crust and cooked to perfection! Everything is always consistently good every time I stop in. The atmosphere is fun and lively, and the prices are reasonable. Reminds me of my favorite NYC pizza! 10/10 a must try!
Gluten free appetizer (garlic knots) were great!
Amazing food and service
Really cool pizza spot in Detroit. Enjoyed our Italian chopped salad and hot Italian pizza. Service was good too. Will definitely be back to try another pizza pie.
One of the best pizzas I have ever had. Already ready to go back. Service was good and food came out very timely.
Had such a great anniversary dinner here. My drink was on point, pizza was delicious and our service was super fast.
The Bee Sting pizza was incredible. One of the most uniquely perfect flavor combos on a pizza I've ever had.
Enjoyed my birthday dinner last night. My girlfriend and I both ordered what our server Nicole recommended - Beast of Burden and the Juliet. The food was so so so yummy and the service was great. Definitely recommend Mootz for a nice relaxing dinner.
Great pizza variety , good prices, lovely atmosphere! Highly recommend.
had some pizza that was a perfect New York style pie - chopped salad was fresh and crisp - loved the dressing. our server was very helpful and not overbearing - Will return with more friends to this place for sure.. also tried the meatballs and Sunday sauce - just like home..
Natalie was awesome, everything from the appetizer to the pizza, and even the pie we shared was outstanding! Definitely a spot to check out
Best pizza that I have had ever! I am looking forward to my next visit.
Great for the family. Food was excellent, service was fair at best.
Food was served cold (pizza and garlic knots). Meatballs were the only thing ‘warmed’. Food would have been delicious if served hot. Waitress sucked… didn’t follow up after food was delivered, didn’t ask if she could get us anything else. Constantly had to flag her down anytime we needed anything. Restaurant has great potential, but wasted $70 tonight
First time visit with family before heading back to college. We absolutely loved it best place to get pizza. You have to get the garlic knots there are literally the bomb.
Awesome restaurant! Only issue was we were seated right by the kitchen and the wait staff was obnoxiously loud.
Amazing food and service. The pizza came quickly and it was absolutely delicious.
Our family’s first time dining at Mootz.
One word AWESOME!!
I had a wonderful time! The food was great and so was the service.
Easy and place to have pizza with our teenage kids.
Great, friendly and well paced service. The pizza was awesome. Highly recommended.
Mootz was a good vibe and food was tasty, service was a bit off on drinks like don't let my beer run down and have to wait to get another one even when I asked when beer was half way done. Other than that good times
Great place with an amazing atmosphere and vibe. Food was very high quality as well! Will always come back.
Love that there was a great mix of people there. Good music- maybe a tad too loud (but I’m old- lol).
Pizza was on point.
But, honestly it’s a bit pricey for Za.
Great ny style pizza for us east coasters. A bit pricey, but pricey is the new norm. Glad they’re open and have staff.
Great options if you are gluten free. Highly recommend the Fiery Hawaiian if you like heat!
I had a reservation for my wife’s birthday. We were seated at the table next to the bathroom and server station by the bar and it was a constant flow of people walking back and forth. I asked the host if we could be seated at a booth or outdoor seat, the only other table offered was one in the center of the restaurant and we couldn’t even sit there as other patrons had pulled their chairs out so far and wouldn’t move. We made the decision to leave after a round of drinks because the service and ambiance was so poor. On the way out I noticed several empty booths and outdoor tables, it is very disappointing that they couldn’t make any accommodations when I had made a reservation for a special occasion. Instead we went to La Lanterna and had an amazing dinner and service. I would not return to this restaurant based on my initial experience.
Was seated right away, the host wasn’t too happy but the waiter made up for it. Very helpful and on top of everything. Pizzas, salad and desert was all very good!!!
We had a great time! Our server was great (i can’t remember his name, sorry!) the food was AWESOME. We’re definitely coming back. I have more pizzas and a few pasta dishes i want to try. The truffled honeybee app was really good.
Always outstanding Food and Service. Have been eating here since they opened. From Appetizers to salads,pastas,sandwiches and Pizzas my family and i have always e perienced great food at a great price and service has always been extremely knowledgeable about the menu and fast and friendly. Chris recently is has done a great job.
If your in Detroit whether you eat in or carry out don't miss mootz!
My family and I celebrated my daughter’s 21st birthday at Mootz Pizzeria. We had a great time!
Mootz is always a good pick for dinner. As a new move to Detroit it is now my favorite place to go for dinner. Never disappointed!
Food was good as usual, but service was unimpressive at best. I think that’s par for the course with the shortage of workers these days, but you may want to have someone at the hostess stand who can at least pretend that she wants you to be there. Like I said, these are not normal times, so this was not the typical experience here.
Excellent pizza. Especially nice to be able to pick up a slice or two to take home. Loved the truffled ricotta with honey and walnut bread. I've been to Mootz several times and look forward to going again and again.
Forget about what you have heard about Detroit. There is a vibrancy to the city that will only continue to grow as COVID subsides. Mootz Pizza is on the forefront of this resurgence, providing a great dining experience at a reasonable price. The pizza was excellent! I had the fungi pizza which tasted great. There is also a vegan/gluten-free build-your-own pizza option which was amazing. Highly recommended. Make a reservation to ensure you have a seat.
Great place! we went here for the first time yesterday and it didn't disappoint. Great atmosphere, fantastic food and great service. I will definitely be going back.
Pizza delicious, service excellent! Look forward to visiting again
We had an awesome time. Staff is incredible; Sean, the General Manager, whom we’ve known for a long time, is terrific, and always accommodating. We were able to meet Bruno, the pizza “master”, and our wonderful host/owner, Tony. The terrible rains did not deter us from celebrating my fiancé‘s birthday. We’ll definitely be back.
