The food is delicious. That is indisputable. The service however is another matter. The maître d is unfriendly at best, rude and outright nasty at worst. They misrepresent seating times, changing estimates to suit their needs. Frankly, there was no attempt to be welcoming at all.

To make it worse, the house brewed beers were awful. Just the worst microbrews I have had anywhere. Warm, flat, and one in particular (blond ale) was like spoiled Miller Lite.

Overall, great pizza . But they should just do take out and sell bottled beer.

Was recently in New Haven on a short business trip and had the distinct pleasure to spend an evening at BAR. While waiting for our table, read the menu and couldn't believe that they offered mashed potatoes as an option on a white pie. Really?? ...then started seeing pie after pie pass by to hungry diners. Boy, did it smell good! So, by the time we claimed our table, our minds were made up: white pie with mozzarella, mashed potatoes and bacon it was. It was fabulous! One of the best pizzas I've ever had. Mmmmmm. The salad was pretty good, too, as was the microbrew.

Absolutely recommend this! Make it a "must stop" when you're in New Haven.

Amazing pizza. Thin crust and sauce is great. Mash potato with garlic and bacon is to die for!! This place is right up there among the best pizza in New Haven. Parking right across the street. Usually not long of a wait. Highly recommend. Won't be disappointed.

Everyone knows about the pizza at Pepe's and Sally's, and a lot of people know about Modern, but Bar has some fantastic pizza, too. And the salad is to die for! I don't drink beer, so can't comment on their micro-brews, but friends tell me they are excellent, too.
