The restaurant is beautiful and the staff very pleasant. We had tried once before to visit, but the wait was insane. We decided this time to be there right at opening time. We were not impressed with the pizza, nothing special and expensive for what...More

This was probably my fifth or sixth visit to Comet. We love it! The unfinished decor with mobiles hanging from the ceiling and bits of art scattered about is very laid-back. Your table will likely look like a ping-pong table with benches, unless you eat...More

Heard a lot about the place. Lots of raves so we thought we'd try it out. The pizza is very, very good if a bit quirky. No reason to get a plane margarita one. Try something with veggies and you'll be happy. Good service too.
