That's Food Critiquing 101. Your reviewing is at the 01 level.
88 is delicious, it's just not for "regular pizza" people. If regular is what you want, Mama's is probably still your best bet.
Of those reviewed, I've only gotten pizza from Sizzle so far. Their pizzas don't look that great (I was seriously concerned when I went to pick up my first pizza, seeing all the wan-looking pies sitting out for slices), but they taste good and the crust is *amazing*.
@2 No, food is not ever reviewed in such a manner. The idea is that a reviewer is getting the same experience as any anonymous customer could expect at any given time. If a reviewer is treated poorly by staff and gets shit food, the typical customer can expect the same. That is rather the point. Otherwise you are portraying places in an unrealistically light.
@6, I respectfully disagree.
What you mean is: "I haven't found pizza that I like in Seattle." While there is some objectivity when it comes to food (e.g. I think 100% of people would agree that a pizza is "bad" if the entire thing is burnt to a crisp) most of it is subjective. It is, of course, very common for people to express subjective opinions in objective terms.
Brooklyn Bros. pizzeria in Everett might come close to most authentic New York Style.
I presume you're from New York, or at least lived there for a while? What are some of your favorite pizza places there? Given the standard you likely have, I'm sure you'd hate this pizza but when I was there two years ago, I discovered two local operations -- 99¢ Fresh and 2 Bros - that sell cheese slices for a buck (or 99 cents), and you can get two slices plus a soda or water for $2.75. My favorite pizza? Hardly. But I like the slices and you can't beat the deal.

My favorite place in Seattle was the former (closed in Oct 2010) Madame K’s in Ballard. I loved the pizza and the atmosphere (one writer called it a "magical quirky space".)
@2/11, I have never read (or heard of) a restaurant review where the critic went back several times and ordered a different thing each time, then wrote a review of, I guess, the whole menu. Not that I'm a maven of such things, but.
Nice one. You also brought back a good memory. I went to the U of Oregon for a year quite some time ago and lived in a dorm. My roommate was from New Jersey (we still keep in touch; I've visited him and his wife on my trips to New York last spring and this spring) and one of the two guys in the room next to us was from Queens. Both called pizzas "pies." It was the first time I'd ever heard that term for pizzas.
@17 - I grew up in Seattle and never heard "pie" used for pizza until going to school on the east coast.
What a great way to support local businesses on the hill Rich, turn people away.
