I love John's of Bleeker, I have been going here with my parent for over 15 years!! We started going ever since we moved here when I was 7!! Ah the pizza is always how I remember it!! Slices are thin, savour every single bite of each slice you devour. Stop with the complaints, it's good pizza in my top 3!

I was born and raised in NYC. Don't understand the hype about this place. Pizza had a nice crust and tasted okay. Restaurant is a dump and could use a good cleaning. Booths very uncomfortable. While there someone was delivering boxes of Polly-o cheese used to make teh pizzas. Nothing special about the food or the place. Would not return or recommend it.

John's is the Gold Standard for Pizza in the whole country. It is the way it is supposed to made with a paper thin crust that is crispy and blackened by the wood fired forno. The cheese bubbles on the crust with a dusting of herbs and just the right amount of sauce. The taste is superb. Pizza is not meant to be heavily laden with sauce or cheese. Before it reaches your mouth, your brain sings with joy at the sheer simplicity and beauty of it.

You don't come to John's for the atmosphere- you come for the pizza. And it is well worth it. Among the best in the city- the tomato sauce is delicious, and the pizza is always crispy and well cooked. Don't miss out.

We only ordered one pizza and two beers, so I cannot comment on any of their other dishes, but the pizza was somehwat disappointing. It had a very good (not excellent) crust, smoky and crisp, but not particularly flavorful, a very generic-tasting sauce, bland generic cheese and bland toppings (somewhat unpleasant and flavorless in the case of their ricotta). In short, everything about the pizza except for the crust was hopelessly mediocre, and the crust was simply not quite good enough to make up for that. I've had better. Won't be back and will check out other places on my next trip to NYC.

I don't understand why people like this place so much or why they would wait on a long line for it. While it's not the worst pizza I've ever had, it's also not one of the best either. The staff is pleasant enough and we did not wait very long to get in, but even a 10 minute wait was not worth it. The so-called house salad is not worth it, $6.50 for pale, wilted lettuce, pale pink tomatoes, and so-so dressing. We ordered a basic sausage, onion, pepper, and mushroom pie. This is a classic combination which any decent pizzeria should get right. Well, John's did not get it right. The sauce was bland and the toppings were too. Overall it was very disappointing. We won't be back.

I've been eating at Johns on and off for my whole life. This year for my birthday i decided it would be great to introduce it to my freinds. Were from the Bronx and are all Pizza people. Despite the no reservations policy they were very helpful when I called and told them I had a large group coming in the middle of the dinner rush. We arrived 20 min later then we had told them due to construction on the 6, our table was ready and they didnt seem to mind us being late. Johns on Bleaker is a classic NYC JOINT, however if your looking for something a little more upscale their uptown location might be better for you. The Pizza was great like usual the bill for 20 of us after the tip was 200.00 bucks. A great deal for great food. One of the best Pies in the NYC.
