The service here is absolutely terrible. Our waitress (Maria) "greeted" us by demanding our order merely two minutes after we were seated. After we asked for a few minutes she merely rolled her eyes (in our faces) and walked away, picking her cell phone off of our table. Moments later she demanded our order again, this time we politely let her know that she was being rude. Rather than fix her attitude she demanded to know "what was wrong with her" after we asked for another server and she went on how it was "her area". Fortunately we got the manager on duty to take our orders (and she was nice), but we were told that "we didn't know what she was going through" (employment 101 = leave your personal problems at the door) and that this girl was "one of the best servers". If that's so than I'm quite concerned about this place.

Considering the prices (the food is alright at best, drink selection is great though), you'd think you'd get high end service. Not so much based on our experience. I can go to my local McDonald's or 7-Eleven and get far better service...for cheaper!

The ambience and atmosphere is fantastic however, and I will admit the manager on duty, plus the hostess and one of the male servers were really nice. But if you do go I hope you never get the mentioned waitress, she's rude, snotty, ghetto, unprofessional and she clearly doesn't care.

Food and service were the worst I have ever experienced. The chicken was cold and rubbery and I was rushed out. I was given a fork and not a knife and I was never asked if my food was OK I was always asked when I was going to be done. The wait staff at the beginning of the meal should advise if there is a time limit on how long you can dine. When I ordered a shake it was given to me in a to-go cup so I could leave. The "classy" (please note the sarcasm ) assistant manager proceeded to tell me there were people waiting and they needed my table. When I told him I have never been treated so rudely in my life I was told "its OK we don't need your business we have plenty." If this is the was their plan to run a business I feel very sorry for them because they do not have one clue how to run a restaurant. Just in case here is the formula for you Good Food+ Friendly Service= Happy Customers who will come back. Don't go here if you intend to enjoy your food or your dining experience its not worth it for the definitely overpriced food.

Archetypus is a really great place to go for a date. The lighting is low and it's got a great atmosphere. The food is good and at reasonable prices. It's got a really cool decor - it almost feels like you're in a cave. I'd definitely recommend it!!

I love this cafe. Not only is the food excellent, but the prices are reasonable too. They also have great desserts. This is not necessarily a family style restaurant, but its perfect for a calm, romantic date.

The atmosphere is beautiful with candle light and relaxing music. The food is always delicious and even vegetarian friendly. All the servers are considerate and prices are reasonable. (They also serve a special type of cake, but you have to ask for it by name)

I went to this cafe/eatery and was very impressed by the interior. Each table is designed as its own personal cave. The food was decent. The pizza was simple and small but tasty. This place would not be recommended to fill your appetite if you are really hungry, but its great for a good snack and a great chill session. The pricing was reasonable and I would definitely go again.

Pro: Great Atmosphere
Con: Small meal size

I've been going to Archytepus for a couple of years now. The menu has gotten better in selection and in taste, but so has the price for the type of food it is. it's a great place to go for coffee and dessert, for conversation or a appetizers. I love the caves because they give you a sense of privacy and it's a BYOB.

Pros: atmosphere, BYOB, Casual, great for conversations

Cons: the wait for a cave, service is sometimes slow, and hard to find parking on weekends

I enjoy the cave setting with the hidden art figures on the wall, very creative. However, this place lacks quality service, you can wait a very long time even after making a reservation. My friend had asked our waiter several times for her drink, but he kept forgetting or got side tracked. We were done eating our dessert and he finally brought over her soda. I enjoy this place the most during the cold season, for a nice cup of hot tea which is served in a small kettle, very cute.

Archetypus is a great dessert place on Old River Road. The seating is in caves built into the walls, with decor of greek figures protruding from the walls. Dessert is absolutely fantastic, the most moist of cakes. They serve other food, but you should go for the dessert. Service is a bit slow and you may have to wait if you get there during peak hours (late night). Also, they only accept cash.

Got a hankering for a Nerthus (fruit and Ice cream married together for a heavenly taste). Or maybe you prefer a Lahmajun (Armenian seasonings with veggies and beef and tzatziki to dip). The food is excellent and the atmosphere is fun. A great place to bring some friends, or even for a quiet date.
