When I arrived, I was super excited to see the layout- I'm a sucker for patios and open air restaurants!

We decided to share a few pizzas and ordered the Spicy Pesto (spicy pizza sauce, hazelnut pesto, with fresh basil and fresh mozzarella), the Cortez (candied bacon, gorgonzola, and tomatoes, topped with fresh arugula and avocado), the PBTO (hazelnut pesto, candied bacon, diced tomato and caramelized onions topped with mozzarella), and the "New" New York (spicy pizza sauce, seasonal onion mix, bell peppers, mushrooms and vegan sausage with mozzarella).

At least the company was great. :)

You are too, now, aren't you?
My other complaint was that the service was disappointing. Our server just seemed really out of it. Fortunately, our second server (or manager or someone) was more competent and she thoughtfully took the brussel sprouts off our check at the end. However, when we asked to have our leftovers boxed, we got this:
Oops, I forgot I'm trying to be more compassionate towards others. Hmm, maybe he was having a bad day. Or he was new to the job. Or maybe he was drunk?
In conclusion, I loved the atmosphere, liked the food, and was annoyed by the service. I know some in the group enjoyed the food more than I did, so perhaps I'm being harsh. I think our waiter biased how I felt about the place. I recognize that he was just one person, so maybe the other servers are all awesome. I would go back again, but I'll probably hit up Project Pie (and some other places) first.
