Margherita Pizza & Lobster Pot Pie
The whole wheat crust was better than expected with a glass of Merlot. The pizza is absolutely delicious with fresh ingredients and full of flavor. My guest really enjoyed the pot pie, as a real foodie would you consider using puff pastry and chucks of lobster on top for a variation? Great for local date night!

Love this restaurant! I have
Love this restaurant! I have been several times and have not been disappointed. A special treat is the sample of tomato bisque that you get at the beginning of the meal. Perfect restaurant if you are looking for great food and consistency. The goat cheese salad is a favorite and if you do happen to have kids over the age of say 9, the pizza is perfect for them. Can get a bit noisy depending on where you are sitting and what time you are there.

This is our go to restaurant for a casual dinner with our kids. Outstanding selection of craft beers. Tasty food...and we have high standards. Friendly and polite service.

great food, cool spot!
We recently took our son and 9 of his friends here to celebrate his 18th birthday and it was perfect in every way. Not outrageously priced for such a large group, but top notch food and service while still being cool enough for an 18 yr. old and his friends. Not just a pizza place by any means, apps were all incredible, everyone loved it!

Very good all around
Overall, the food and service were quite good. We loved the pork sliders as well as our prosciutto pizza. There was a good selection of beers and wines by the glass. The one thing we weren't crazy about was the mussels. Although the mussels were nice and tender, the beer and bacon sauce was not to our liking. The spices and bits of bacon did not add much flavor, so the taste was mostly that of warm beer. If we order the mussels again, we will go with a different sauce. But again, the overall experience was positive and we will likely return.

Great Lunch Buffet
The lunch buffet was excellent. The variety and quality of food was well worth the price. We'll be back.

One Giant Step for Gluten Free Menu
My husband is gluten intolerant and it is very difficult to find a restaurant that serves gf foods besides rice and meats. I can't even begin to tell you how wonderful the experience was at the Tomato Bistro. Great service, nice ambience and the best gluten free pizza we have ever had. I ordered the regular pizza and compared it to the gf, and there wasn't a difference. In addition, we had the option of gf bread on our sliders (which were yummy). It was awesome seeing the big grin on my Roman (yes, from Rome) husband's face during our entire meal. Thank you Tomato Bistro...oh and the salads are really something too. We will be back at least once a month ( we live an hour away).

Great food and atmosphere.
Great food and atmosphere. Food was the perfect amount and it was great to be able to sit outside. Service was great as well. We will be returning soon!

both my companion and I thought
both my companion and I thought it was a very nice place for a nice informal lunch. I would go back again.

Great Lunch spot
One of the best lunch spots in Manayunk. Great price, great selection!
6/16/2013 12:00:00 AM
We Love Tomato Bistro
This was about our 8th time at Tomato Bistro. We originally went there with another couple before a concert because it had Gluten Free options on the menu (I have Celiac's Disease). Since then we've gone back alone and with our kids. The food is amazing every time! The service is always outstanding! Every server is friendly, knowledgable and attentive. They have the BEST GF Pizza we've ever had. I'm going to start ordering 2 so I can take one home. They have a variety on the menu so there is something for everyone. We will definitely be back soon :)
6/16/2013 12:00:00 AM
Fun and fabulous
We love the Tomato Bistro and were very excited to share it with our friends. Now they are hooked!
The food is amazing and the service is stellar.
6/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great food and craft beer
My fiancé and I love this place because of the unique menu options, cratft beers and a nice atmosphere. We had the crab cake sliders and truffle sliders which we both loved and would order again. The cheese steak small plate is great if you love cheese steak. It's filling! We also had the chicken cutlet pizza which we loved. We will be back!
6/21/2013 12:00:00 AM
Small plates were fun to share
Small plates were fun to share with family. Nice artisan beer selection. A lot of options for meat eaters , vegans, gluten free eaters, and kids!
6/28/2013 4:00:00 PM
Awesome first visit!
I visited The Tomato Bistro with my husband and my mom last weekend. After seeing the lunch buffet we decided to do the buffet because it looked delicious! There was a huge variety of fresh, yummy food including salads, soup, a variety of specialty pizzas, and much more. My favorite part was the bottomless Bloody Marys. Staff was all very friendly, atmosphere is very cozy and the price is reasonable-$10! Will definitely be returning!
6/29/2013 12:00:00 AM
Pizza here is simple or as complicated as u like but always great and delicious. Service was wonderful and Aaron made sure we were well taken care of.
7/2/2013 4:00:00 PM
Fast and Friendly Service
The food is good here. The pizzas were very tasty and we finished every morsel. The waitress and staff were great: very friendly and professional. Tomato Bistro has hit the right mark with good food, fast and friendly service. We also really like the free parking service as Manayunk can be pain to park.
7/11/2013 5:00:00 PM
Great food, great service
What a great eatery. Food is amazing. We tried sliders, pizza, salad & tapas. Wine list is wonderfully unique.. Our server Myrtle was fun, attentive & competent. Use the free valet. Go.
7/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
Delightful selection of small
Delightful selection of small and interesting menu items including many gluten free choices. Prompt friendly service.
7/14/2013 12:00:00 AM
My wife and I had dinner here before a concert at the Mann. The food was GREAT! The dinner for 2 special is an unbelievable deal considering the portion and quality if the dishes. We will be back!
7/18/2013 12:00:00 AM
What a great casual dining place
We went not knowing much about this restaurant, but loved it. We tried 6 of the 7 sliders... plus a pizza and a strawberry salad - each was tasty! Service was fast, friendly, and efficient.
Don't miss the free valet parking (like we did) - just pull up in front and there is a sign with a phone number to call and they will come out and get your car.
We will be back!
7/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
Tomato Bistro was delicious and they have a large selection of drinks. However, we ordered several courses and they were brought out kind of on top of one another which caused them to get cold. The restaurant is ideal for large groups but was somewhat noisy if you're looking to have an intimate conversation.
7/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great find in Manayunk
Really enjoyed our experience at the Tomato Bistro. Great food and service. Especially loved the truffle sliders. Reasonably priced house red wine made it a perfect date night.
8/3/2013 12:00:00 AM
Fantastic Lunch Buffet
But that isn't the only thing that is fantastic. We have been there for dinner as well. Both times, the service staff was super friendly and helpful. The food is always fresh and tasty for a very reasonable price point. We just came back from having their lunch buffet. Great selection of salads (love their pear salad!) different flatbreads/pizza and other hot items like sausage and peppers. Just a lovely experience and a lovely place to go any day of the week.
8/7/2013 12:00:00 AM
Enjoy the Tomato Bistro
I always enjoy the Tomato Bistro. Great menu, good service.
Don't miss the Tomato Bisque on your next visit.
8/16/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great for a girls night out
I met a friend there for dinner on a Friday night. The food was delicious and the menu was perfect for someone with specific dietary needs (my friend is vegan and gluten free). I will definitely be coming back!
8/23/2013 12:00:00 AM
valet is a blessing!
We went for Sunday brunch, but we decided to have lunch instead. I'm on a GF diet and when I saw they could make pizza with a GF crust, I took a chance. Though more like flat bread, it was tasty and the texture was good. The waitress was very attentive returning to the table to ask if I needed the chicken to be grilled instead of breaded., as out usually comes.
the streets err packed (Sunday at 1:30), and although valet service was slow, it was very necessary to be sure. You must call the ph number posted in front of the restaurant to c contact valets!
8/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
Went for lunch and was very surprised with the many choices one had. Salads were fresh and lots to select from. Atmosphere very up beat. Employees were very friendly and helpful with any question we had. This is differently a place I would recommend.
8/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
We enjoyed the meal, mussels were a little small but delicious
Pizza out of this world and available gluten free
Terrific salad too!
8/30/2013 12:00:00 AM
What's not to love?
The Tomato Bistro is a WINNER. Great food and such attentive service. What makes it the absolute go-to destination? Valet parking. This was my third visit to The Tomato Bistro and it was most assuredly not my last.
9/7/2013 12:00:00 AM
The menu and the food are absolutely delicious, and the third floor is so charming.
9/14/2013 12:00:00 AM
Food was very good- group had flatbread pizza, salad, mussels, and macaroni and cheese. Mussels were slightly dry, but the broth was very tasty. The pumpkin lager was delicious as well as the pear cider. We come here about once a month and bring co-workers from out of town. We have consistently good food and servic e and the free valet service makes it VERY convenient!
9/18/2013 12:00:00 AM
Never a disappointment
We love the Bistro! We have eaten at almost every Main Street establishment and there have been several we have enjoyed. Unfortunately they always change to try to become more than what they were and inevitably ruin the thing we love about them. Not the bistro! Fantastic food, the best service, and a comfortable atmosphere all makes this our favorite spot in Manayunk.
9/21/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great food, leisurely pace
The food was delicious. We opted for tapas and a pizza for our group of 5. Perfect portions with something interesting about each plate. Shared 2 desserts which were yummy, tho the chocolate waffle and ice cream could have been more creative, given the caliber of the other dishes. Cool vibe with exposed brick and modern decor. Service was friendly but slow paced. It took 30 min to bring out dessert. But we were in no rush so it didn't matter to us. Overall, a great meal. Will definitely return.
9/22/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great brunch buffet!
My boyfriend and I have had the brunch buffet a few times and each time, there's always something different to try. The salads and pizzas are really good. I also like that the atmosphere is very chill. I would definitely recommend this place!
9/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
Tried the basil pesto pizza and the strawberry and fried goat cheese salad. Both were delicious. The restaurant had a great atmosphere and the service was wonderful, everyone was very attentive.
10/1/2013 12:00:00 AM
It was so tasty that I am returning 2x in one week.
10/2/2013 12:00:00 AM
Love this place!
This place really has it all. The food is fantastic, but not stuffy; foodies and casual diners alike will be sure to enjoy it. The same can be said for the ambiance as well, for although a name like "Tomato Bistro" seems like a cutesy diner, it actually has the feeling of a nice restaurant, without losing its charm.
The dishes are somewhat small (but not too small), which makes it a great place to go with a group of friends and try a bit of everything. Everything we ordered was tasty and wonderful.
My girlfriend and I were also treated with excellent service for both of our dinners there. And, of course, the free valet service is a huge plus, especially in crowded Manayunk.
If you're in the Philly area, definitely give this place a try!
10/5/2013 12:00:00 AM
Love the different spin on pizza and the tortilla salad is a must. Great for lunch too as you get a set price for the good buffet.
10/18/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great little spot
First time there with some friends for lunch. The food was very fresh & very good. Staff was friendly & helpful.
10/18/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great lunch buffet
Great lunch. Quick and easy buffet with lots of choices. Now if only parking in Manayunk wasn't a nightmare. That said, the restaurant offers free valet parking, but I didn't take advantage.
11/7/2013 4:00:00 PM
Great experience at Tomato Bistro
We went to Tomato Bistro for date night and thoroughly enjoyed the food, beer, and wine. I especially liked the southwestern and crabcake sliders. Our service was polite and fast. The restaurant is in a cool old building (lots of staircases, exposed brick) with modern touches such as the paint color choices. Overall the ambiance was very good. The only thing that would have made our dining experience better would have been sitting at a slightly more secluded table. We could hear everything our neighbors were saying and I'm sure they could hear us. Would definitely come here again and would recommend to others!
11/15/2013 4:00:00 PM
Outstanding all around
I almost don't even want to mention this because it will let the secret out, but their brunch is to die for and reasonable priced!
11/16/2013 4:00:00 PM
Unique, flavorful, reasonably-priced food. My wife got the Waldorf salad and I, the honey chipotle chicken pizza. Both were outstanding. I also tried the birch beer soda. Would highly recommend
11/20/2013 4:00:00 PM
Another amazing night
My girlfriend and I come to the tomato bistro often and we are never disappointed. Tonight there was a date night special. First round free, small plate, salad, and pizza all for $45. It was a perfect deal. Get the duck and apple pizza! You won't be disappointed!
11/22/2013 4:00:00 PM
would go again
interesting twists on pizza, apps, etc. nice selection of beer. great service.
it is on the second floor of building without an elevator, so not great for anyone with physical challenges.
