    The food was very good, but the service was good at best. We were there about 9 months ago, and didn't realize the style of dress on a Saturday evening was now so extremely casual. Also, there was a crying toddler which was very distracting. What ever happened to "babysitters". I would think twice about returning.

    36 years in the same location is a pretty big accomplishment and Tomaso's does it with an incredible menu of Italian dishes. We couldn't make decisions on what to order so we ended up doing a little family style. This was the best decision of the night as we got to taste several different items. In general, great meal and good atmosphere.

    I had higher expectations for this restaurant based on previous reviews and advertising. I was quite disappointed with the food. The calamari was rubbery and the fish special dish was unremarkable. Will not return. In a nice touch, they did bring a cupcake out with a candle to celebrate the birthday that we had gone there for.

    We only get to Tomaso's a couple of times a year now, what with my traveling schedule. For years, we were regulars but had to slow down a bit. Tomaso's is distinctive for two things: excellent service and outstanding food. It's summer so things were slow Saturday night, but the service was still excellent and the food outstanding. I love the way they can "adjust" what you order to your preferences (the short ribs paired with the pappardelle noddles did it for me!). Don't go here for a cheap meal, do go here for an outstanding meal with great service in a nice locale.

    Was looking for a nice restaurant to celebrate our anniversary and Tomaso's was the place! A little on the pricey side but the food quality was superb and it was a special occasion so didn't mind at all. I had the classic lasagna and she had the ravioli stuffed with butternut squash in a delicious butter sauce--everything was terriffic!!

    Started my night off with a spider running across my napkin. Wrapped it up and handed it to the wait staff. Calamari was fantastic. Wine was good. Six of us all ordered different meals except two ordered lamb chops. Two mixed grills where brought. Said we would eat them if cooked right.. medium rare is what we ordered. Cut steak in half as waitress waites... well done! She said I'll bring some lamb for you guys. No more than 10 minutes later.. to fast, a 3 inch thick lamb chop comes to table.What do you know blue in middle. still cold so rare. She takes them back and they re cook the same pieces of meat. For a $40 meal are you kidding me. After all said and done they charge us for both meals.. couldn't believe it.

    This experience is why you take advantage of restaurant week - to go somewhere you always wanted to go but never did. The Crudo Filet Mignon Carpaccio was terrific as was the roasted beet salad. My wife had the Roulade of veal tenderloin while I enjoyed the Menage a Trois which featured lobster , sea bass & blue crab over squid ink linguine. As wonderful as they were the sauces on both were exquisite requiring great will power to simply not lick the plate. The meal's final touch was a terrific pistachio gelato. In short, I can't believe we had never visited Tomaso's before, but I am sure we will be returning in the near future.

    I know this restaurant has been around forever, but I just don't see how. The dining room in the northwest corner of the restaurant smelled like mildew, we were upsold on wine which we didn't really want, the service was slow, and the food was not very good. The only positive thing we can say about Tomaso's is the bread and butter spread were the best part of the meal. Very disappointed and we will not go back.

    I was pleasantly surprised to find the restaurant not busy for mother's day. Food was excellent a usual,my 2nd time there. Ambiance was great, for the family, we all ordered different entrees, ranging from the chiopino to the veal marsala, and 2 different entrees. What could have been better was the way the server interacted with me. A couple of times the waiter addressed me as "buddy" which I really didn't appreciate, I mean we're not at 5 guys ordering burgers, even then u don't think they would, do that. I still ripped 20% on a tab over $200. All in all, I would definitely go back for dinner, whether it be just an evening out, or special occasion.
