Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

The food is excellent, no question there but the fact that you have to order from the app and there is no interaction with a server ruins the whole experience. We pulled up at 7:30 on a Monday night, wait was 30 minutes. After 40...minutes we check in with the hostess and she says “oh I called your number”. Nope, definitely no one called. We get seated, scan the QR code, the menu pulls up, no waiter. We are now sitting staring at our phones trying to figure out how to order instead of interacting with each other. The menu is very annoying, you can’t see the whole description until you click on the item so instead of being able to skim through the menu you are clicking on each item and then CL licking the back button to go back to the rest of the menu, very aggravating. This whole time not a single person came by our table. I had a question about couple of menu options but simply no one to ask. It literally feels like the restaurant is self serve. Once we made our choices and placed the order (through the phone), it takes you to the pay page where a tip of 20% auto populates for you. This must be a joke, who am I tipping?! Should I be rather getting a 20% discount for doing all the work myself? The experience was such a turn off, it doesn’t matter how good the food isMore

We went for takeout. The square pepperoni pizza was unusual and excellent. It wasn't because it was square but because of the crust thickness, the sesame seed under coating and just great flavor.

Decent Neopolitan pizza if you are a fan of the neopolitan style. Degraded fast so eat it fresh. The Brisket Five O was the best of the three pizzas we tried. Monte Crisco solid too.

After being turned down at the sit-down version, we walked to the slice shop and had a decent experience. The pizza is not awesome, but it is good enough and generous. There is not enough sitting available, but the atmosphere is pretty vibrant, which is...a plus.More

First night in NY and this was recommended by the barman in the hotel. Luckily we got there before opening and were first at a table because within 10mins every table was full!! Quick service, very tasty pizzas, accommodating staff. Really can’t fault it. Would...highly recommend, if you can get in.More

Atmosphere: small bar setting in front (less than 10 seats); dining room with several tables; dim lighting; wood fire oven visible in the back; craft beer on tap; music over the speakers Meal: Hellboy Pizza (one of the signature pies) - ingredients individually were fresh...and tasty but was not a fan of the hot soppressata and honey combination.More

Although we have a location in Chicago, this was my first time dining at Paulie Gee’s. We arrived a bit after 7pm & it was filled with candles & lovely but almost too dark to see the menu. My friend literally had to use the...flashlight on her iPhone to see. The pizza menu is extensive including a nice selection of vegan versions. I had the Chop’t ’Til You Drop vegan pizza {sorry not the best pic because again, too dark} and it was good. The vegan brownie, which the server raved about was just ok. They had a nice selection of music playing in the background and I even opened up Shazam to capture a couple of songs. Also, after our pizza was served Paulie Gee stopped over to ask how we were, which was nice & rare nowadays.More

I look at pizza shop as its own interpretation of a slice of pizza. Paulie G’s is preaching my brothers and sisters. The go to slices the Angry Man, a pepperoni slice with Mike’s Hot Honey and the Freddy Prince, a grandma square. The square...all have a sesame seed bottom, an excellent touch.More

Pales in comparison to sit down version, and even to other slice joints...even in Greenpoint lol. Please improve this spot, or just disassociate it with the original, as it is now just a blemish on an otherwise incredible pizza.

Thoroughly enjoyed our experience at Paulie Gee's! Very welcoming and friendly atmosphere! Paulie was a gracious host! Our server, Christina, was awesome! Loved the decor! Loved that we had to share a table with new people because we were able to meet another pizza guru,...Justin. Oh...and the pizza was amazing!More

I went to the Paulie Gees restaurant with my Sister and we had the best time. I am dairy free and she’s vegan. The pizza was amazing. They did an amazing job specializing the flavors! I definitely recommend for anyone.

Easily the best pizza we had on our trip to NYC. This restaurant is the thing of local legend, with an extensive menu and some amazing creations on it. The restaurant is in a good location in Green Point, is easily accessible, and is very...cool when you get there. It can be a bit dark inside, but it has a cool distressed look about it. The food is really sensational, with great choice on the menu, fresh ingredients and outstanding flavours. They also offer a large wine list with plenty of options for pairing with any pizza. The pricing is fairly reasonable as well, not too expensive, and you absolutely get what you pay for at Paulie Gee's. Finally, Paulie himself is often around (apparently) and was there on the night we were in attendance. It's good to see a restauranteur who cares about their restaurant that much and is around to talk to patrons and ensure they are having a good time.More
