Bad bad bad service. Beyond a joke – Bad bad bad service. So bad we stopped going. Decided to go back after a few months away. Nothing has changes. Management need to get their act together.
Even takeaways they get the order wrong or the back kitchen forget the sauces in the salads!!!!! (twice this has happened). Final straw. Avoid at all costs until they get people running the place or staff that care.
I heard about Rodents? – I have eaten at Archie's many times. The pizza is great. But sometime last year they closed for quite some time. Rumors went around that it was due to rodent infestation. I hope its not true :/
Good Food, Bad Service – The food is almost always worth it. Good to take a GPS to place on your waiter/waitress so you can find them when you need something.
Terrible pizza terrible service – I can understand that some people may like this place. it's better than McDonalds, at least a nicer atmosphere. I was very disappointed! The the food took forever which I don't mind if it's great, but it was mediocre at best. I have had better pizzas at domino's for muuuch cheaper. And I have to say the service was terrible. it was like being served by robots with attitudes and bad accents. And I love Robots! I actually tried it twice because I had several friends tell me it was good, but they are the type of people that either ate there when they were drunk, or just believe it was good because it says "gourmet" on the sign. Don't do it!
Great pizza, HORRIBLE SERVICE – On several occasions, I have placed a takeout order over the phone and been told my pizza would be ready in 20-25 minutes. However, when I show up (30 minutes later), the pizza has not even begun to be made and I end up spending my whole lunch hour waiting for my pizza while their employees seem to care little about my obviously impatient waiting. Always order AT LEAST 1 hour in advance, even on a wekday (which is when I order). Ecellent pizza, crappy service.
Good Staple in Coral Gaables – Archies, is a good place to hang out with friends. Food is good, prices are affordable. There is usually very little wait time to be seated. The menu is ample with varied daily specials. It's very nice with a larger group because you can be yourself in a casual setting.
Blase Pizza and Service – I became an Archie's fan years ago when I first tasted their pizza and bread--it was excellent. Now, however, my opinion has drastically changed. I've been there 3 or 4 times since my last good experience, hoping to find what had originally impressed me. In summary, their pizza is average/good and their bread has gone from great to average. The service is really what makes an average restaurant into a bad one. Last time we went, our waiter was in charge of a huge section and of course he couldn't devote enough time to most tables. Instead he opted to spend most of the time catering to the largest table with most people (aka higher tip than my 2 person table--bad choice for him since I tend to be a very generous tipper). So we received bad service from waiter and to top it all off when we were leaving not only did the hostess block the door as she talked on with her friends, but she didn't even wish us a good night or whatever. This wasn't the first time I received bad service at Archie's, but it definitely will be my last one. I'd rather go to Bugatti and get my pizza there instead!
NOT BAD PIZZA! – I'M A PIZZA LOVER. I WAS PASSING BY AND I SAID... WHY NOT? THE PIZZA WAS NOT SO BAD, NOT THE REAL ITALIAN PIZZA, IT'S OK, BUT IT WAS NOT BAD! THE MOZZARELLA AND THE TOMATO SAUCE WERE FRESH AND GOOD. IT'S A GOOD PLACE TO EAT ALTERNATIVE PIZZA.
Great pizza! Great for kids! – Although sometimes a little too crowded, if you can get a table, the pizza is worth it! Excellent pizza selection and nice salads too. Their pico de gallo salad with chicken is delicious. The kids love it because they can paint on the paper tablecloths and be as loud as they want. We love it because they also have a full bar! Service can be iffy - sometimes great, sometimes so-so, but as long as they bring the drinks and there is their delicious focaccia and olive oil and the table it is ok!
One taste of this pizza and you'll never order delivery pizza again. – In Short
This brick-walled gourmet pizza joint is the newest addition to Coral Gables' restaurant row. TVs hang over the full bar, where you can grab some food while watching the game. Families sit alongside couples on first dates, and Friday nights draw hoards of hungry yuppies fresh from the area's multiple happy hours. The restaurant is crowded but comfortable, and the smell of freshly baked bread and pizza emanating from the large oven makes the somewhat slow service bearable. n assortment of Italian dishes, including appetizers, salads and pastas, populate the menu--but the main draw here is the pizza. The crust is soft and thin, so as not to distract you from the rich taste of pizza's sauce and toppings. Archie's uses incredibly fresh ingredients, and you can taste the difference. Everything from the Margherita (topped only with mozzarella and basil) to Archie's signature pizza (loaded with fresh prosciutto, pepperoni, salami and ham) is delicious. With a dozen to choose from, there's a pizza here for every taste.
