    This was our second visit to mi Tomatina and we can't wait to go back. This wonderful restaurant is tucked away from the main stream of Park Ave and is full of ambiance. The music, tables lend to a very friendly fun atmosphere! Our waiter, Juan Carlos was fantastic!

    Tucked away from the hustle and bustle of Park Ave., Mi Tomatia is a charming little restaurant. The seating is primarily al fresco, with only seating for probably 20 inside. The outside dining is along the street, with umbrellas and several tucked between Mi Tomatia and the next door restaurant (leading to the large outside bar area) that are shaded and with ceiling fans. Service was prompt and gracious. The food selection is varied and tasty. The bar area is large and covered, with a few flat screen tv's, fans, and high top tables backed with a lush background of bamboo plants. My only suggestion would be to have some citronella candles in the back seating areas to keep the bugs away...I left with quite a few no-seeum bug bits.

    Great food -- we had the Russian salad, grilled veggies, calamari, tortilla and duck breast, then the clan and cream de Catalona for desert. All fresh and flavorful. High marks for the asparagus in the grilled veggies, the tortilla and the cream. Outstanding service from Paul and great live music.

    After living in Europe for the past eight years, I was reluctant to try tapas outside of Spain. Boy was I glad I did. Mi Tomatina brought me right back to Barcelona! The food was amazing. I especially enjoyed the smoked Salmon, meatballs, and the seafood paella. The service was great. Our waiter was funny, friendly and accommodating. The food came out in a timely manner, and we were served delicious warm rolls with a tomato dip to start. The ambiance was fantastic. All the tables unique and the atmosphere was upbeat yet sophisticated. The Lava cake for dessert is a must!!!! I will definitely be returning! Thank you for a lovely evening.

    We searched for tapas to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary. We arrived about 7pm on a Monday night, in the picturesque part of Winter Park. There were only 3 tables occupied, and we were offered seating at the new outdoor bar - I HIGHLY recommend that you try it. Two large screen tv's, happy hour, outstanding service and ambiance. Watch for smokers! We selected mainly seafood items, the sangria and red wine list. You can't go wrong with anything, it was ALL delicious. The bartender doubld as our waiter, and we only waited about 10 minutes from ordering to delivery for food. Appearance, temperature, and flavor were above our expectations. Small tables are the norm here, and it can be more noisy outdoors than indoors.

    great little place in Winter Park... this is the second time I have been. The food is quite tasty but I found the service the second time to be really slow. our drinks took awhile to come and I had to flag down other servers to help us since ours appeared to disappear for sometime. No one came to check up on us while we were dining. The place did not even appear to be that busy so I am not sure what the issue was. We still had a fairly pleasant time and I would go again due to the food.

    We had not been to Mi Tomatina on a Sunday night, but it was another good experience. We ended up sitting in the new bar section - it's really pretty and a nice area to enjoy the food and wine. Service was attentive. We enjoyed our old favorites, including the scallops. Always good. The seafood flatbread was unusual but it turned out to be another new favorite! We ended up ordering a bottle of wine and sipped our way through it and the rest of the tapas. We ordered the small paella and that was a great finish and we were very content. There was a nice crowd and everyone seemed to be having fun. We will, of course, be back!

    We are not quite sure of the problem when we arrived as the restaurant was empty and when we asked to be seated outside, everyone fumbled and seemed confused. Once we were seated, the meal went well. My house salad was excellent, a bit small for the price, tasty and I loved the touch of the plumpled white raisins. We each had sangria and both white and red were equally delicious. It was refreshing to have sangria that was not syrupy sweet & overloaded with juice and many restaurants should take a lesson in sangria from mi Tomatina. Ever receive rolls at your table that are so hot you have to let them sit a few mnutes to let them cool? This was a treat that we throughly enjoyed.

    We found the food flavorful and unique. However, ever item was barely warm, nothing hot! The server was friendly, but forgot drink order twice, charged us for 1 drink (iced tea - smile really) that was never deliverd. We, and all other patrons around us, waited a ridiculous amount of time for service and orders. Items came out one at a time, some delivered 30 min after order, others 50 min after order. We asked for a desert menu, planned to order something, but server never came back. Twenty-five minutes late, I had to go find someone and waited another 15 min for the check. We have frequented Armondos, the Italian restaurant next door and thought we would try Tomatina. After our experience, we will stick with Armondos.

    I have not been to Tomatina for a few months. Food was as good as ever (except Creme Catalana was sent back because it was not firm...but liquid), service really was off this night. I guess they moved all bar fulfillment to the rear bar-Barcelona. Took us 15 minutes to get drinks after first order was placed, and my second glass of wine arrived after the tapas were finished. Bill had erroneous charges (two extra glasses of wine). Manager said he removed one of the Sangrias for the inconvenience. This did not happen...it was still on the bill. I'll go back, but it has lost some of its appeal. I don't know if there is a new owner, but the detail and focus of the wait staff is certainly different.

    We were the only group (5 of us) seated inside for lunch, and there was another table seated outside. Although the food was outstanding, and our server courteous, it took an unreasonable amount of time to receive our meals, our drinks, coffee and the check. There were several staff in the kitchen, but only the one server. We're happy to have a leisurely lunch, but 2+ hours for salad and a tapas plate is unreasonable; it took almost 30-minutes to get 4 capuccinos...and they were cold when they arrived. It may be that there is more serving staff available at dinner, but they seemed to be understaffed for lunch.

    The food is great and Tapas Tuesdays $4 each is a great deal. Once we got our waiter things went very smoothly, however initially it seemed like there was some confusion in the staff as far as whether to bring me water and it definitely was the slowest sangria service ever. Still, I think that was a random issue and would definitely go back. I was there for 2 hours with my date and we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves.

    An amazing tapas tasting experience from beginning to end. Delectable duck was perfectly seared and served at exactly temp requested. Flatbread selection was delish comb of goat cheese, tomato and greens with excellent dust of herbs and served crispy hot. Soup was almost hot, served in an English glass bowl sans the hot rolls requested. Although tasty, the beef and mushroom offering had a stew-like consistency which made sharing awkward. Chocolate molten lava cake served with vanilla creme beside fresh vanilla bean ice cream was a light fare for a just right end.

    Perfectly seasoned beef tips and sliced mushrooms served in a hot cast iron skillet with a tasty gravy and fresh from the oven rolls started this tapas tasting. Heartily garnished flatbread is deliciosly crisp, served on a hot rough hewn slate for temperature consistency, and could easily satisfy one's lunch appetite. A newly discovered favorite, roasted pear and duck served at medium temperature offered succulent flavors and uninhibited aroma. Polishing off an alfresco dining experience: rich earthy coffee beside chocolate lava cake with vanilla cream sauce and vanilla bean ice cream. A Winter Park, Florida bellissimo!

    We walked up to the restaurant and waited in the deserted dining room for about 5 minutes. No one came out, no one greeted us. We stepped back out of the restaurant thinking we may be in the wrong place. We found our way back to the open-air bar. We asked and they told us we were in the right place the first time. We enjoyed a beverage at the bar (the sangria is good, but not very strong), we went back to the front. The server was standoffish, clumsy (broke two glasses) and forgetful. More than once we had to remind him of orders we had put in. While he played it off as they were being made, on one occasion, we heard him calling in the order as "new" to the chef. Food was tasty but we will NOT be back because of the poor service.
