I ordered the Omnivore and Mama Mia and the omnivore was completely burnt and the Mama mia the toppings felt right off due to too much cheese. The environment there IS NOT KID Friendly! When I told the manager how bad the pizza was was...not interested and told me thats just how its made. Stay away!More

Incredible deep dish pizza with crispy caramelized crust and high quality toppings, plus friendly, helpful service and a nice selection of local beers on tap. Be sure to ask for their reheating instructions if you're picking it up to go, it makes a big difference...with leftovers!More

My wife, daughter and I went to Windy City one night for a great pizza dinner. We started with the Arugula & Roasted Beet salad with Bleu cheese and a glass of rose. We followed that with the Meatza pizza. The caramelized cheese crust edge...was delicious, as was the pizza. It is a very large pizza that easily feeds several people.More

I was on a trip from Chicago and I wanted to try a pizza like Pequod's Pizza so my wife and I went to Windy City Pie. WOW! It was better than Chicago's Pequod's Pizza. Pizza has been a big part of my life. I've...tried every type of pizza in Chicago over the years and there is always room for more great pizza. This is a new great one. We order online. That made getting our pizza easy when we got to Phinney. Cool space. Love the eclectic environment. Neat bar and drinks. Check out the artwork. But it's the food and the friendly staff that make this place great. It is the food that is the star of this evening. We had the Meatza. The crust was crisp especially the carmelized cheese edge. It may look burnt to those who don't understand what they are getting but don't overlook that delicious part of the pizza. The sauce is a perfectly tangy and sweet combination. The homemade sausage was delicious. The bacon and pepperoni are equally balanced with the other ingredients. The cheese works as a great counterpoint to the sauce and the other in tasty fresh parts of this masterpiece. This pizza is an indulgence that is worth the calories and carbs. Go for it. If you're worried about your diet they have other great options. My wife had the All Kale Caesar! salad. She loved the freshness, the switch of kale for the romaine lettuce and taste overall with a smaller serving of pizza which left more for me. This place is busy, order online, but be patient. Enjoy your night at this unique place.More

Certainly not your traditional regular crust pizza by far. We tried the 'Meatza' ... liked the thick crust as it held up well to the very very chunky tomato sauce, which was the biggest surprise for us. Toppings were quite good. Definitely feeds more than...just two people. Glad we tried it at least once. Fortunantely we had access to the Club Lounge at our hotel where we could obtain some cutlery as it arrives unsliced, which is noted on their website … after seeing the pizza, it is understable now why you have to slice it yourself.More

With great anticipation, I took my first bite of the Windycity pizza. I used to travel to Chicago for work and would look forward to my trips for the deep dish pizza there. I was a huge fan of Uno's, Lou Manati's, Giordano's and Gino's...East. I'm always on the look out for great deep dish. Seattle has had a number of such places come and go. The old Chicago's by the Key Arena (coliseum) was very good, Testa Rosa and Kylies-excellent are now gone. Currently Delfino's and Patxi turn out a nice pie. I make a pretty decent deep dish too. Getting back to my Windycity pie, it was very good, a nice flavorful sauce, ample toppings, nice spicy sausage, generous amount of cheese. Their signature burn cheese crust edge was very good, but the flavor and texture of the non edge portion failed to impress me. I was looking for something with a bit more crunch (Ginos) or a flakeier style (Patxi, Kylies) not the soft bread like texture that this had. Still this is a very good pie to try. Staff and service were excellent. Be prepared for a wait.More

Did take out--the instructions are a bit confusing, but the pizza pie was really tasty. This place is a 5 in Seattle but a 4 in New York. I am from New York so I have a pizza snub and I can say this place...has solid pizza. The sauce is good which is the most important part. I've been to Pagliacci's which is crap and Big Mario's which is alright. This place is better. They do not have dine in yet so do not show up unannounced. Call first.More

Have visited three times and each time we had a crazy-good pie. Their Classic is just that and the one with meatballs is out of this world. Can't wait to go back and try some others and craft our own. Great staff.

We stopped in here for a lunch meal of delicious Chicago deep dish style pizza and were totally impressed! If you want an ACTUAL authenticity to your deep dish pizza as opposed to just having more bread (like the knock offs) then try Windy City...because it is perfect! We tried the Meatza and it was so tasty and totally impossible to finish for just us two people and we can really eat!More

We wanted to get one big pizza/pie with two different toppings on each half. The lady told us that this is not possible and if they would do it, we would have to pay full price for each topping (the price of two dishes for...just one half/half), which is pretty stupid. Well, we decided on a pizza to get and told the lady behind the counter three times. After an incredible long waiting time, we picked up the pizza, just to find out that they made the wrong one... As we were hungry, we decided to take the it anyway. The waitress was even so nice to offer us a 50 % discount for the pizza, which sounded to good to be true (which it was). For some reason, the restaurant doesn't cut slices but you need to get a special slicer for a $5 deposit. Why don't they just cut it?! I've got to admit that the pizza was really good, everybody liked it. However, when I looked at my credit card payments, I had to see that they didn't reimburse me 50 % of the price. Lying to a customer is outrageous! To sum it all up: taste and size is very good - service, honesty and simplicity of the whole order process is very bad!More

We're glad you enjoyed your food. Not slicing it all at once as it comes out of the oven is key to that enjoyment--it will get soggy otherwise. We know it's more difficult for you to put a deposit on a slicer (this process is...More

This restaurant is housed in a distillery and the first time we accidentally walked passed the entryway. We had just come off a flight from San Diego and wanted to eat somewhere relaxed, tasty and reasonably priced. My husband and I shared the Veggie deep-dish...and to order the food it is separate spot from the bar, you then have to go to the bar to order your drinks. We decided to eat in and although they said it would be a 35 minute wait the dish came out more quickly and the relax vibe of the restaurant felt comfortable to wait in. I recommend 3-4 people sharing one dish, we had about 2 slices left that we took back with us. It was very filling and super satisfying. I didn't feel sick after eating such a heavy style meal but I did appreciate the walk back to our accommodation. This place has a decent amount of seating and takeaway is another option. Great vibe for groups catching up in and sharing some food.More

Windy City was suggested my my hotel when we were in Seattle. This place is hard to find we drove past it twice, but it was worth the effort. Nothing fancy but great pizza!
