Dewey's Pizza

Reviewed By Bamajor - Rochester Hills, Michigan

The barbecue chicken pizza was slightly different than what I was used to but actually better than anything I’ve ever had in this category. It has some ingredients not normally found on barbecue chicken pizza. I think I could have eaten the whole large pizza by myself but resisted. This was a thinner crust pizza with a ton of flavor. The service was outstanding. Price was moderate for pizza and the atmosphere was OK. I will for sure go back

Our server, Mark was knowledgeable and friendly. The restaurant was quiet and beautiful. We had the Empanadas, scallops and Cebiche as appetizers and various dishes as entrees, all of which were very tasty! Only misstep was one of the entrees coming out with tomato and we let them know as soon as we sat down that there was a tomato allergy at the table. Other than that the evening was perfect. Thank you!

Nice place to have a glass of wine and a meal. The shaved beef sandwich ( like a French Dip) with a crispy bread was good. Tabouli with Sharma Chicken was just the right thing to have. Our wait person was attentive.

Corner Kitchen

Reviewed By david c

this location has had many eateries here. Corner Kitchen has made this a much more inviting and usable space.

This night they happen to have a squash soup that Everyone raved about. Really was excellent. Great stock base that allowed the squash but clear hints of seasonings.

The meals overall were good.
The plating was average compared to other like establishments
Service as also average.

Thai Nine

Reviewed By chattygirl7491 - Franklin Ohio

Omg love this place. It's got such a cool vibe .. the decor.. food .. service .. sushi and drinks are all very good. Great for girls night or date. They do lunch and dinner. They disclose for a short while in between and they have started charging for parking.l .. 3 dollars.

This is in the Oregon district golf dayton which is about the coolest place in Dayton. Parking is an issue and places will how you if you park illegally even late at night.

If you have never tried Thai food .. don't be intimated. They are very helpful. We love the salmon with tamarind sauce, Thai spicy, Singapore noodles, pad Thai, Love the salmon bakery roll which is not ear... Omg delish. So many others too.

Oakwood Club Incorporated

Reviewed By J D - Miami, Florida

We visited from out of town and tried this restaurant. Reservations are accepted, seated promptly at the appointed time. The service was impeccable. Friendly, timely and most helpful. The food was very good, although several items including Sea Bass were not available. The filet was slightly past medium rare as it was ordered, not enough to send back. It lacked flavor, even more than a typical filet. The NY was better, correct temperature and more flavor. Sides were not memorable. Good restaurant, a few tweaks would make it better.

Marion's Piazza

Reviewed By M S

For someone who hadn't been here before, it was pretty chaotic and confusing. We sort of figured out how it worked, placed our order, and had our pizza within about 10 minutes. The people at the pizza counter were friendly, the people doing the drinks were not so much. The pizza was nothing special, but was good.

Lily's Bistro

Independently owned "nice dining:" great food, friendly service, creative bar program in an un-stuffy atmosphere. Food, cocktails, beers, and wines change to reflect midwestern seasons with a focus on eclectic American and scratch made comfort food.

Reviewed By jetfan2017 - Dayton, Ohio

Quaint restaurant in Dayton’s Oregon district. Went there for a multiple couples dinner date with the spouses. We had a wonderful time. Had the devil eggs app which was good. Ordered the veal chop, it was pretty good, could have been given more mash potatoes and less carrots. My wife had the fried chicken and she liked it and I would probably try that next time. Had the donut bread pudding for desert and it was very good and probably could have used more Carmel. Had the specialty bourbon drink and was nice. The coffee was good and waitress came by to refill without asking. Wished the printing on the menu was larger and didn’t know they offered parking. But overall a very nice night out.

Joe's Pizzeria

Reviewed By golanlevin - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania

Thoroughly disappointed by this charmless, overrated joint serving prefabricated pizza. The food was of pitiable quality, similar to what you might expect being heated up in a microwave in a downmarket roller rink. Our family arrived after a long car trip at an uncrowded dinnertime, and waited 20 minutes, for pizza that was tasteless, over-salty, quite greasy, and burnt/overcooked in places. Also, the pizza was cut into tiny squares that virtually guaranteed messy eating. Who does that? A regrettable experience. Locals write that this is the best pizza in Dayton; if this is true, you should muscle on through to Columbus.
