We live in the neighborhood and regularly visit Comet. We absolutely love it and is one of our favorite places to eat. I love their salads (arugula salad and their chick pea salads are my favorites!!) and we've had many of their speciality and make your own pizzas over the years. My son loves their meatballs. This is a great... More

Loved this casual pizza restaurant. I had a simple white pizza which was delicious. Also loved the healthier type of appetizers. The kids were occupied with ping pong in the back and a large screen tv that played the Little Mermaid. The diversion was necessary to compensate for the long wait. Great decor and atmosphere, will definitely return.

I have been going here for years. The only problem is if you are driving then there will be limited parking. It has outdoor seating and funky/fun wait staff. Love pizza? Love Ping Pong? Okay, you don't need to even know what ping pong is to love this place. I go for the meatballs. The pizza is average to above... More

If you like personal-sized gourmet pizzas with interesting ingredients, then this is a great choice. The thin crust pizzas are cooked quickly in a wood-fired oven. My only complaint is the overabundance of garlic, which is rough for me personally.

I had to check this out after all the notoriety died down and I'm glad I did. They have a wide variety of excellent pizzas and salads with a great beer selection to wash it down. Very reasonably priced as well!

Awesome pizza. Super quirky – you eat on top of ping pong tables. You enjoy yourself while fighting fake news!

Food is good, fun atmosphere, but way overpriced for what it is. If you are okay with a big bill for pizza and wings, go for it. Taking advantage of their location in the posh NW suburbs.

Lots of fun varieties of pizzas along with salads and a large variety of beers. There are ping pong tables in the back. It is a crowded place - it is easier to get in on weekdays. We went a week after the shooting incident and it was very full and there were banners we could sign supporting the store.

We came here especially to support this establishment located in a great area -- where Connecticut Ave. and Nebraska intersect. The service was great. We had a couple of Pizzas and a the roasted vegetable appetizers. Everything was fresh and well done. I wouldnt rate this as the best Pizza in town, but its really good, with attentive service and...

Pete's is my favorite pizza place in DC, but Comet is good too. Personal-sized pizzas and decent quality toppings. Hipster décor. Staff knows what they are doing too.
