Description

img_0540img_0541img_0543Steve’s Wood Fired Pizza is located towards the western part of Boca Raton. Just west of Lyons Road actually. Went there with Jimbo the other night. Originally we were going to Mama’s Pizza, but decided to try a place I haven’t reviewed yet. Sorry Mama’s!

Steve’s Wood Fired Pizza has been around for quite a few years now. I remember going to eat there with some friends a long time ago, before we used to watch Alias on ABC. The owner there is very involved and takes great pride in making his customers happy.

It is a quaint dark atmosphere, with a wonderful aroma. Let’s start with the staff. The staff at Steve’s Pizza is amazing. They help each other and make sure you never have an empty glass of soda, and help you along ordering. Smiles are not out of style here. What seems to be out of style here though is a decent portion for the price.

As you can see by my photos above, the pizza wasn’t even the size of a straw. And once cut the slices were about half the size of a fork. For about $10 bucks, I feel ripped off. The pizza was decent, but far from perfect. Cooking in a wood fired oven, doesn’t guarantee that the pizza will actually taste great. The sauce was bland, and needed a bit more of a sweeter taste in my opinion. The crust happened to be crisp and firm, but at the tiny size the slices were, if the crust flopped, this place wouldn’t deserve to stay open.

I will definitely try Steve’s pizza again, since past experiences have been better, but Steve I really suggest either lowering the price of these micro sized pies, or making them a bit bigger. Nobody wants to feel ripped off. Your staff is amazing, and you place is adorable. But there is nothing cute about the size pizza we had.

Steve’s Wood Fired Pizza in Boca Raton gets 4 out of 8 slices, and micro sized slices at that.

It should be pointed out, as Steve himself sent to me..

    Perhaps you’ll enjoy a Domino’s pizza next time. Sauce & cheese over a loaf of bread is not pizza.

    Here is my 2 cents. Previously I thought the individual pies were definitely some of the priciest I have seen. Higher than some I have bought in London which is one of the most expensive cities in the world. Now Steves has a medium pie which makes cost drop. I have not tried every single pie. Every one I try is excellent. I have never seen the help, not friendly so I wonder about some of the comments here. I do not know what Steve looks like but he might have served me a few times. Steves is one of the best pies I have ever had. He is consistent no matter who is cooking. I am not big on the coal fired stuff. I think the wood fire makes a better pie anyway. Some of his coupon promos are a litte weird but get on the email list!

    So this Dr. Rosen pulls this schtick with everybody for free food? Is this guy even a doctor? Not that I’m defending Steve’s pizza because I too think it’s small, unsatisfying and extremely overpriced, but Jesus all this justifying back in fourth is childish.

    These comments are ridiculous. I have been going to Steves since my son was in diapers and he is almost 9 now. He is always very accomodating,the help is great, and the pizza is as good as Pizzeria Regina in the North End of Boston. You don’t pay 20k for a Bentley do you? He is so nice that he allowed my son to go next door and get a Carvel and sit at his table with it….after I had said no it would be rude, he said no problem….Most places would tell you that you have to order off their dessert menu…..I am appalled at the comments people have made here and no, I am not taking the 10.00 credit.

    Yes I am a physician, you moron and I don’t do this to get free food. When I am served garbage, I send it back. I have never had a problem at Ninos or Anthony’s Coal Fired Pizza. My only problems were at this shit establishment. It’s filthy inside and should be closed down by the dept of health IMO.

    Any business that has to buy comments with $10 coupons is pathetic as far as I am concerned.

    I never leave reviews. So you know how upset I am to actually do this.

    I ordered twice from these guys and after the second time they lost me for good.

    – The first time I ordered, the food was good, but the service was “0”-zero. They told me it would take 30 minutes (for one pizza) for TAKE OUT. I waited and arrived at the 30 minute mark, to find out they have not even started my order and waited another 20 minutes, right there as they prepared everything from start. In the end they told me that I have earned $5 in rewards with them for my first order and for giving them my e-mail so they can put me on their newsletter list. So I had $5 in rewards, that I could use next time towards my next purchase.
     
    – The second time I ordered (Today 10/15/2011). The guy on the phone sounded like he didn’t want to be there (unless he has some kind of a challenge or speech impairment – in which case I apologize for my comment).  He took the order (1 small Pizza and cheese sticks) and said it’ll be done in 35 minutes. I arrived there in 35 minutes, the food was ready this time. I said I have $5 in rewards, that I would like to use towards my purchase today. The young lady helping me claimed I do not have any points, not for today , not for the future, I simply do not have any points in their computer. After I politely argued and asked why would they tell me I did have points last time, if I did not? Another employee came in, punched something on the PC and HE FOUND MY POINTS, I really had $5 in points now, which somehow 2 minutes earlier I was told I did not (by this time my card was swiped already and I could not use my points). So I said, no big deal, I’ll use them next time.

    I arrived home, open the pizza box and I see a BURNED PIZZA, badly burned, the edges of it were pitch BLACK and not just spots or circles, but about 15-20% of it was dark BLACK. The middle was a little edible. And to top it all of, the pizza did not fit in the box, so they folded it over to cram it in the box, so 20% of that BURNED pizza pie was crammed and folded over to fit the small box.
     
    I will never order here again, because I do not like to risk having consistently bad customer service, poorly prepared and packed overpriced food and points that cannot be found in their PC when you need to use them.
     
    If I’m going to pay $25.68 for a SMALL pizza and 5 cheese sticks, I want them not badly burned, packed where the food is not destroyed and I want a service with a smile !

    There you go again with that ridiculous rebuttal and trying to blame the shortcomings of this place on a customer. Bottom line. In my opinion, this place is a huge rip off with tiny micro sized pies at insane price. The pizza tastes ok but it’s not great. It’s an overpriced mediocre place for morons who have no idea what good pizza tastes like. It Alo comes with a ikening boca attitude, as well. Keep your miserable overpriced crappy product

     The comments are deserved. The owner is arrogant, and serves tiny overpriced mediocre pies IMO.

     You should try Ninos. It’s a better value, nicer service, and tastes 1000% better

    The gentleman running this place has a major attitude problem and has zero customer service skills. I was with my 8 year old and 10 year old daughters and my 8 year old used his bathroom and he came out and was completely rude to us.. I would never go back to this place and I will make sure I let everyone know the experience I just had. He was loud and obnoxious in front of my daughters and the customers from Carvel sitting outside.
