Hoping for a nice meal with five kids. However we were taken to the top tier and left there for 15 minutes. Then waited another 15 minutes only to get three out of the six meals. Then waited another 15 minutes for the second set of meals to arrive. When we mentioned it to the manager all he did was send 1 cheesecake to the table!! Very poor service and mediocre food! Needless to say I would not recommend this restaurant for locals like us and especially visitors who are looking for a overall good experience.

What great pizza...thin, crispy, lots of toppings. I highly recommend this restaurant. If you want a quick eat, avoid going within 2 hours of the Broadway show times. There was a snaffu with the kids pizza and they fixed it immediately and comp'd the pizza. Great service inspite of that.

This is the best pizza in NYC that you can find, and the closest thing to any of the authentic pizza I had in Italy. The service was outstanding. An all-time favorite, hands down.

Went on a Fri. afternoon and walked right in and sat down. The pizza was very good and the service was good for N.Y.C. But the best thing was the pete's-a-rolls and the sauce. That was the best sauce I have ever eaten. Will be telling everyone about this one.

This is not my first time at Johns Pizzeria. I decided to write this review after reading some harsh service reviews here on menu pages. The pizza at johns, is some of the best in the city, and Bleeker might be able to claim best of all. Times Square is right up there. For everyone who comes from a part of the country where you have a waiter crawl up your ass and leave some flair behind, keep going to those places and don't come to New York. The Servers at Johns, know their jobs, and handle an extraordinary volume of people everyday. They are a family and families have good and bad days. The girl who books the reservations is unavailable most of the time and doesn't return messages. I tried reserve a large table of 40 people and never got a call back. Besides that, it was a great time, pizza was great, their house salad dressing is tart and original. Soda tasted a little funny, but besides that, it's always great to make it to Johns on a week day and have a pie.

It's called John's Pizzeria for a reason: they're known for their pizza, so why eat a pasta dish there and end up disappointed? John's is nothing like Domino's, Pizza Hut, or Pizzeria Uno, theirs is closer to real Italian pizza. The toppings are all traditional (no crazy Americanized toppings like shrimp or pineapple.) The crust is thin and delicate and the pizza isn't greasy. I know pizza and this is as good as it gets! Don't expect refills or split checks, though...this is NYC. "When in Rome..." The restaurant was really busy when I went there, but the waitress still gave thorough, pleasant service. Personally, I don't enjoy in-your face service. I like to enjoy my food and company in peace. She checked on us once and that was plenty. I also realized this was a high-volume pizza place...not fine dining. For being in the heart of Times Square, I found the value to be incredible. Only the martinis and frozen drinks were steeply-priced. I say: split an appetizer and a pizza and share a pitcher of beer or soda...that's how to get the most bang for your buck.
