AWEFULL – Magazine St. store. Worst experience ever. Don't bring your children or anyone else under the age of 18. Foul language music screaming from the overhead speakers. When we complained to the managment, we were told that this is America and we can play what the F#%K we want. Food was average, too many other great places to eat in NOLA.
I am not too sure...but others seem to like it. – My first trip to Slice--Ordered a pizza over the phone, they said it would take 15 minutes. After waiting 15 minutes, I drove over. I went in to pay and noticed that they had a "slice specialty pizza" some sort of potato, sausage with an avocado aoli. My original order wasn't ready yet, so I ordered one single slice of the slice of the day ... Well, to my surprise it took 30 minutes for them to cook one slice of pizza. I am not exaggerating, 30 minutes. After 15 minutes, I asked the counter girl and she said, "well. you changed your order so it is going to take longer" In my defense, I didn't change my order, I added to my order. If a whole pizza takes 15 minutes, why in the world would one slice take a half an hour?? I paid and tipped and took my pizza home .
I opened my pizza and to my disappointment it wasn't really that good. It tasted flat, not that it was bad just not really good.. The second trip to Slice- I ordered the cheese ravioli with bacon,chicken and pecorino and a pesto cream sauce. Well, there was no sauce at all, just a clump of pesto, tons of bacon, slightly dry chicken on really lovely cheese filled pasta. The dish would have been good if there was any sauce. However, there was none. Too much bacon and way too much cheese. It had a lot of potential but didn't live up to the expectation. I will go back and eat in the restaurant because I am thinking that some thing gets lost in transportation when you order take out from Slice.
May I suggest – I suggest anyone interested in further reviews go to Yelp and read them there. I'm from NJ originally and have been eating this pizza since the place opened. Great pizza. Can't give a review on service, have only eaten in once at the bar. Tourists, remember, we are BELOW sea level. You can't make yeast rise the same. These folks have it down. Go....Eat.
Good...not great... – I have been wanting to try Slice for a while. I finally did and I was not impressed. The pizza was so-so, and it didn't help that my slice was a bit overcooked and too hard for my tastes. I asked for water and my glass was dirty and sent back twice. I finally settled on a plastic cup. I also saw the waitress pick something up off the ground and set it on the counter where the kitchen crew puts food when it is ready. Not so sanitary... The bruschetta was actually really good, and the meatball sandwich was also tasty. Unfortunately, the worst thing on the menu is the "slice."
their service sux, but the food is almost good enough to cover for it – Food is fine, but every single person that works there is either too high to remember you ordered something, or FAR TOO COOL to actually serve it to you. I was in there today, since I live around the corner and it's no big imposition to go there, and there were TWELVE EMPLOYEES to ELEVEN CUSTOMERS on a lazy saturday afternoon. Here's the deal, they're all young trustafarian hipster people, so they don't wanna have a real work environment for work, I get that, but seriously - customers deserve as much respect as you give yourselves. Don't be jerks to the people making your dream of owning a restaurant of your own happen. I assume at least one or two of these 20something people has some ownership interest in the place, otherwise it wouldn't be run that way, so that's real advice. Seriously, it looks like one or two of them own it, and they invited all their friends and their girlfriends to work there, and everyone just half-asses it. I don't know. Good pizza, but you'd make a lot more money if your servers didn't act like they were doing the customers a favor every time you go in there. Like I said, I live around the corner and I love pizza, so I've been in there 5-6 times, and the service is NEVER good. I feel bad for the other reviewer who said she went in there with her family and waited an hour while others got served, and I totally believe that it happened just like they said. And I also believe no manager would talk to them because THERE SEEMS TO BE NO MANAGER. I just don't like that. As if you're TOO SQUARE TO EAT PIZZA. That just sux. If someone thinks he or she is too cool to bring normal people and their kids a pizza, then that person IS JUST NOT THAT COOL. That's it. STOP TRYIN TO BE HIPSTERS! Oops, sorry, thougght I was done.
Feel like your are at a friends house! – This is the best pizza I have ever had. I have been to New York and Chicago and this pizza stands alone. It is different then both those styles of pizzas, but I think it can hold its own versus any pizza in the world. As far as bad management goes, I have never seen it. I was there during Mardi Gras and remember the incident described here. I was in one of those other tables sitting near the impatient jerks. When a pizza shop has about 30 new tickets a minute pouring into a kitchen with one pizza guy and one slice guy, your food might take a minute. I watched the manager say to that table, "Im bartending and really busy, you're welcome to speak to me in the bar. The people ignored him. I also watched the same manager make 2 white russians while running food and talking to a table. If anything that manager should have gotten a medal. I wish my managers could do just two things at once.
All in all this pizza is worth the wait! i have added to my must see list of things in New Orleans.
BEST pizza, and fabulous salads – LOVE this place!!! Can be noisy when busy, but in a good, lively way, and sometimes, very peaceful and quiet, in a wonderful way. Absolutely LOVE the salads, high quality ingredients, and delicious, and nice that they have half-portions, that are very generous, but leave room for a slice of their WONDERFUL pizza. LOVE the Bacon Basil and Garlic, lovely thin crust, and TONS of sweet roasted garlic. No vampires in this neighborhood!!!
Awful Customer Service – My husband and I were very disappointed with our recent visit to Slices over Mardi Gras weekend. Having family in the restaurant business, we are forgiving and patient with service, particularly during special events; however, our recent experience at Slices was one of the worst restaurant service experiences we?ve had. We were seated in the dining room and placed our order within 20 minutes of arriving. Then we proceeded to wait for 1 ? hours for a single pizza. This would not have been an issue if nearby larger parties seated after us, some more than a half hour, had the same wait. Two tables of eight came in after us, ordered, received their food, and finished eating before our food arrived. One table had even left a good 20 minutes before we had a glimpse of our pizza. Additionally, other patrons walked into Slices, ordered, and left in less than a half-hour (most weren?t called ahead).
When our pizza arrived after 1 ? hours, we asked both the server and the waitress to bring the manager to our table regarding our experience. The server returned and informed us that the manager would not speak to us. We informed the server that we did not intend to pay for the pizza and were told that we could either eat the pizza and pay for it or leave without eating the pizza and not pay. We weren?t offered a discount or even an apology. She kept telling us that they were just so busy, which didn?t explain the tables around us. Needless to say we left the pizza on the table untouched and did not pay. We went to the BBQ restaurant next door, which also was very busy, and were fed in less than 10 minutes. I?m sure Slices has wonderful food, but sadly they have poor management that needs a lesson in customer service.

good. not the best, but good – well, this isnt exactly the same as true east coast pizza, but its still pretty good. better than most in nola..
great salads, not your garden variety.
Thick Sicilian and crispy Napoleon hand-rolled, stone-baked pies are slathered with homemade sauces and topped with everything from pepperoni to pesto. – In Short
It may look like a hole-in-the-wall, but it has become a favorite among locals, couples looking for a cheap-yet-intimate date and passers-by lured by the smells of fresh-baked dough and garlicky tomato sauce. Stop by for a slice or sit down to gorge on pizza--toppings range from the traditional (fresh mozzarella and tomato) to the exotic (gorgonzola and prosciutto)--calzones, penne pasta and fresh-tossed Italian, Caesar or garden-greens salads.
