Honestly, its too bad.... the food is delicious, but everything else is completely poor. The people there are rude, they mess up all the orders and delivery times are awful. My office orders from them every single week. We spend about 500 dollars. In the past 2 months, one order was right. I swear. I ordered a salad today. I spent 10 dollars to include the astronomical 3-5 dollar delivery charge plus tip and they gave me 3 cucumbers! I ordered extra salad dressing and an extra roll, and do you think they remembered it? Of course not. Who's checking the orders anyway? A blind man? If you cant get things right and run a business effectively, then maybe you shouldnt be in business. I'm so sick of calling them every week to bring us something or credit the account. We're just not ordering anymore. Its not worth the frustration. Getting delivery should be pleasurable, not a huge hassle... espeically when you're paying out the nose for it.

No matter what I order they ALWAYS manage to mess it up, eventhough they repeat it back to me. Something is always missing and usually has been paid for. There are always about 10 people behind the counter but only 1 person taking care of the customers which can make it take way too long to pick up an order. There is nowhere to park if you are picking up food. You either have to park 5 blocks away or risk getting a ticket in a no parking zone. I am in complete agreement with others on their delivery. Don't even bother. Worst delivery times ever. If you ARE picking food up, make sure you check the order before you leave. I'm sure they will have forgotten something.

I feel unusually confident in asserting that The Couch Tomato s the best pizza in Philadelphia. Pizza, of course, is a bellweather for subjectivity some like thick, chewy slices, and some like Sicilian, and some like very sour sauce, and so forth. I prefer thin, crisp crusts, just enough cheese, and a highly rich, smoky tomato sauce and the Couch Tomato has perfected this. They also have fine salads, very competative prices, and very likely the nicest employees I've encountered on Main Street, at a pizza shop, or perhaps anywhere. The Couch Tomato strives for excellence and, in my opinion, achieves it.

Are you kidding me? This place is not what they say they are. The sups taste like campbell's rather than home made, infact give me canned soup, it's better. The rlls are hard and let me not forget to mention, the pizza, What pizza? It's like paper thin, so expensive for what? Wheres the dough? and the cheese? and the sauce?please tell me!!!

We love their pizza - nutty chicken is the best! Soups are great too.. never had a bad experience?! Our favorite place in town, hands down.

As a customer who orders from couch tomato 2-3 times/week on average, I feel as though I have a valid perspecitve. The food at couch tomato is amazing- fresh, delicious, and creative. Also, it's very flexible for those who are health-conscious. However, the staff is often unfriendly and incompetent. They often mess up orders, ignore customers, and take too long to get orders together. The prices aren't great, but at least the food is good and rather quick. The amosphere leaves something to be desired, but I guess that's why they're explanding. Overall, they should perhaps train their staff better. But, they're on the right track with what yuppie yunkers want; Inexpensive, healthy, yummy, quick food. :)

Good food, just dont eat the rolls they are hard as a rock! Takes more than an hour for delivery on the weekdays. Sometimes they forget something on delivery. Resteraunt is a little tight but eating outside is nice.
