Another exceptional dinner at Route 66.....Truly cannot beat the location, food, drinks, prices, ambiance and especially the service which is absolutely fantastic!!! If you go for Happy Hour the deals are amazing for the area and the portion sizes are incredible. All the salads, burgers, sandwiches are DELICIOUS!!! My mouth is watering thinking about that menu.

Well located, away from the crowds, felt more like a neighborhood place. Excellent service and ambience. Dishes are in line with what one would expect in a French bistro, we had the Kale salad and tartar steak to start,then shared a braised meat with pasta as main course, everything was delicious and generous portions.

The host and wait staff were outstanding. All dishes were good. Sadly my pasta dish had no flavor but the pasta was fresh tasting and done to al dente perfection.

Park Slope
About the restaurant
Emmy Squared has earned a following for its signature Detroit-style pies. The pizza here is rectangular and utilizes the "frico" technique, in which cheese is drizzled on the edges of the pie to create a crispy, cheesy crust. Beyond pizza, the menu includes salads and sandwiches, which shouldn't be ignored (think an attention-grabbing burger by Matt Hyland and a top-notch spicy fried chicken sandwich)! Did we mention 'Emmy' is the nickname of Emily Hyland? Full service bar, local NYC beers & great wine selection.

Please note, there will be a time limit of 1 hour 30 minutes for guests so we can fairly utilize our limited capacity. Thank you :)

The food here is great, but the service is really slow. This was on a Saturday night and the staff seemed to be hanging around in the back a lot, talking to each other. We waited a long time for our drinks, food and check. They have great outside space.
