We were in line outside for one hour! The pizza is not bad but it just taste like any good pizza! Their calzone is huge!! I went to Vegas a week after this and saw it fashion show mall with no line.

We did not have to wait in line at all to get in, even though it was fairly full when we arrived. The interior was fun, the pizza was great and the racks for the pizza, which I've never seen before, was great for the relatively small tables. The service we received after we were shown to our table was... More

Ate here after family from overseas really wanted to try it out after hearing about it. We didn't really need to wait long (less than 5 minutes) and the service was quite decent. Pizza was pretty good, although I can't tell you exactly why, I felt the Las Vegas locations were better overall. It's certainly worth checking out if you... More

Obviously went through the “20 minutes waiting outside experience”. Once inside it’s nice to check out all the pictures hanging on the walls. The pizza is good but nothing “wow” and the service is average. But it’s worth the experience.

If you are going here, you really have to know where it is. Use your hand held GPS to find it. It is located under the Brooklyn Bridge just east of the ferry terminal. For an adventure, from lower Manhatten, walk the Bridge first they follow your GPS to the spot. If you don't want to walk, just take the... More

We walked the Brooklyn bridge, and headed here for lunch. There were just two of us, and we had no wait at all. We kept it basic and got a cheese pizza, but it was so delicious!! Loved the fresh mozzarella, tomatoes, and basil, and the crust was amazing. A small fed both of us very well - we had... More

What's not to like? Great food and a great price. We were split on which Pizza was better, Grimaldi's or Lombardy's. You can't go wrong with either, Lombardy's is amazing and in Soho, Grimaldi's is at the base of the Brooklyn Bridge. We walked the Brooklyn Bridge (halfway) from the High Street subway stop (blue line). It was a wonderful... More

Great pizza, not great service though. It's almost like they see too many customers and simply can't be bothered. Juliana's next door is MUCH better in every way!

So the Grimaldi's lore gets a little confusing. The New York lore is that Patsy Grimaldi was Sinatra's favorite pizza maker. But now there's Patsy's, Grimaldi's and Juliana's by Patsy Grimaldi 3 doors down... With this enormous confusion about the purity of the history, let's evaluate the place on its own merits. The location is great - if you walk... More

a friend told us that line ups at Grimaldi's are long. we went there and there was no line-up. pizza was great. they made it right after you order. as soon as we stepped out of the restaurant, the line up was already long. i guessed we came just before the line up starts to build.
