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.

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.

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.

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

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.

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.

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.

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.

Disappointed in the service we received. Server, bus staff, and managers all walked past our dirty table 10 or more times, not asking us for the box or bill. Had to wave someone down to get a box to leave. We love mootz pizza! Just the service was so awful! We had to ask for bar drinks, and was hard to even get a 2nd drink!

Food was amaZing as always, but our service was awful. The waitress did not even say hello when she came to our table, she never checked on us, or asked how our food was. We were in a group as well and did not offer us to split the bill or have any kind of conversation/accommodation. I know things are stressful with Covid and customer service, as everyone who was at our table is in customer service, but it was very disappointing to have someone who it felt like they did not want to even be there.
