Diner Reviews
  • "Food was delicious as always, the service, not so good. Not terrible, but could be improved."
    Dined on 7/6/2014
  • "If you would have told me I'd be getting Sushi at an "Italian" restaurant I'd have run away screaming. Tomatoes was outstanding from the beginning to the end. Starting with warm olives and calamari with a Thai seasoning, the mild flavors blended together in a mele of sensations on the tongue without swimming in sauce as other restaurants serving similar dishes. Steaks, seafood, pasta with crab and I had a Karen roll all of which were exquisite in flavor texture and finish. There was no talking during the meal, only pointing, moans of delight and sharing of the courses as they came to the table. Drinks were incredible - TRY THE JAPANESE MARTINI!"

  • "Even if you have a reservation, expect to wait 15-30 min beyond your time before you are seated."

  • "Love this place, the food and service is always excellent, have never had a bad meal here. The crab cakes are outstanding all lump, no filler the duck entree delicious, the tuna is like eating steak done perfectly, love the shaved Brussels sprouts salad. They also have a sushi bar which does great special rolls. Delish"

  • "We dined at Tomatoes on July 4th. The service, on a busy holiday weekend was exceptional and the food options very encompassing. Two of our party ordered the Tuna for the entrée. In both cases they noted that the tuna itself was fresh and perfectly cooked, but the sauce was very sweat and overpowered the flavor of the tuna."

  • "Tomatoes was awesome, as always! The food is always exceptional - and the service and wine list are also! We greatly enjoyed our meals and we appreciate the fairly priced higher end wines. We definitely recommend this place to anyone looking for good food and a great experience!"

  • "My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our dinner. She had the salmon...always a winner and I had the chicken special, breast stuffed with gruyere cheese...service was also spot-on."
    Dined on 7/2/2014
  • "When I made my reservation at tomatoes I intentionally made it later in the evening because I know how busy they are. We were never seated. Never apologize to and after 30 minutes left and went another place. It ruined my birthday and I'll never go there again"
    Dined on 6/28/2014
  • "We had wonderful food however the service was very poor. We arrived at 7:30 for our reservations, we were seated promptly. We began ordering around 7:45 and did not finish dinner until 11:00. It wasn't that we ordered so much the sushi bar was backed up. We were the last ones in the dining room from 7:30!!!!"
    Dined on 6/29/2014
  • "Appetizers did not come all at the same time, had to ask for bread. Water glass remained empty until we asked for refills. Hostess staff was very young and seemed clueless. It was 40 minutes from the time our main meal request went in until we were served. We have eaten there before and the service and food was better."

  • "We have been coming here for our daughter's birthday for the last 3 years. It is her favorite spot at the shore."

  • "FOOD WAS GREAT AS ALWAYS, BUT SERVICE WAS NOT SO GOOD THIS TIME."
    Dined on 6/29/2014
  • "We arrived at 6:50 for our 7:00pm reservation. The place was packed due to Beachfest in Margate. The bar was crowded 2 deep in some places. The host/hostess said it may be 5-10 minutes for our table, and sure enough right at 7:00pm we were seated. The food was excellent as usual. We love to come here and celebrate our special occasions. We will continue to come back. The food and service are consistently superior. Thanks Tomatoes!"

  • "We had a great meal on a Friday night. We did have to wait almost 30 minutes, despite having reservations, but otherwise it was a fine meal and evening. The gazpacho and seafood chowder were way above average appetizers. As a vegetarian I had the fabulous shaved brussel sprouts salad and a side of pasta; both were delicious. My husband had the Chilean sea bass which he said was excellent. Service was knowledgeable and professional. We always have Tomatoes on our lost when we vacation at our nearby time share at the Marriott Faurway villas."
    Dined on 6/27/2014
  • "The food here is exceptional. The decor is very contemporary and the atmosphere is lively. They have a wonderful sushi menu. We were with some very finicky eaters and they all loved everything they ordered. You can't top that!"

  • "Expensive but every bite is memorable. Next time I'll try their happy hour special menu"
    Dined on 6/27/2014
  • "My husband and I vacation with our kids for two weeks every summer in Ocean City. We always have one night as our date night for dinner and a movie. We love Tomatoes and go every time we are here! The ambience, the service, and the food are always wonderful and never disappointing. We have been going every year for the past six years and absolutely love it!!! Don't ever change!"

  • "Great food and service! Excellent sushi bar best in the area."
    Dined on 6/27/2014
  • "Normally, we have nothing but raves for the place. This time it was very poor. Don't waste your money on the overpriced sushi. Go to Mega in Ventnor, much much better. Had to send the tuna back, was black, not bright red. Mussels were over cooked. How do you do that? IF you go, avoid the sushi!"
    Dined on 6/21/2014
  • "The pumpkin gnocchis were different and flavorful. Mussels were a little sandy but good."
    Dined on 6/15/2014
  • "I had a classic rocket salad. The greens were fresh and crisp and it was delicious. I had the burger which was one of the best burgers I have ever tasted. The service was excellent and special requests were easily accommodated. We all ordered a martini that was big enough to last the whole meal. There was live music or a DJ that evening but it wasn't so loud you couldn't talk."
    Dined on 6/15/2014
  • "This was my first time dining at Tomatoes and I can't wait to go back. I had the organic kale salad and the lobster special. Everything was perfectly done."
    Dined on 6/15/2014
  • "Tomatoes is excellent. It is consistently good and the wait staff attentive."
    Dined on 6/14/2014
  • "I wish I knew his name, but our server was not the best. I was so excited to be reunited with my 2 best friends that I barely get to see over dinner at the best sushi spot. After (I kid you not) 35 minutes, the waiter started asking if we were ready for the check. We hadn't even finished out bottle of wine! I tried to explain that we wanted to enjoy our wine. He brought the check anyways and kept coming back until it was signed ignoring the fat that we clearly were not enjoying the fact that we were being pushed out. We ended up leaving annoyed and overheard the table next to us complaining about him to. I was very frustrated."

  • "This is our second time dining at Tomatoes. Great place!"
    Dined on 6/7/2014
  • "Tomatoes was a go-to place for me a number of years ago - its overpriced, but the food was always great. Two years ago, bad service, have not been back since. Thought I would try again - food still a bit overpriced but the quality was worse at this meal than in the past (when is iceberg lettuce used for Caesar salad, the recipe for the thai muscles also seemed to change). Food came out at all different times versus apps and main course - and people were constantly swarming to remove plates from table - we had to mention twice "we are not done with that". Then, when the bill came, I had to flag down the waiter a number of times for him to come and get my credit card. Probably will hold off another couple of years before returning."
    Dined on 6/8/2014
  • "Tomatoes never disappoints me. We can walk over and sit at the bat before or after!"
    Dined on 6/5/2014
  • "My wife and I have had nothing but a great time here. The mood is energetic, the music is great, the service is great, and above all the food was once again awesome. My wife ordered the Crab Pasta dish, I ordered the Short RIb/BRisket burger, and we ordered the octopus appetizer. The martini's were perfect. Cant wait to go back."

  • "Always great at Tomatoes!! The food is wonderful. The service is always great. Love the music too."
    Dined on 5/31/2014
  • "We enjoyed Tomatoes. The noise level was significanly higher than at our previous visit there partly because they had opened a second bar in their "upstairs' seating area where we had quiet meal in January (a much slower time of year). The food was very good, the service was almost too fast -- when we passed on desert we were not asked if we wanted coffee or tea -- and, although we didn't feel particularly rushed, we were in and out in less than 90 minutes."
    Dined on 5/31/2014
  • "The menu is very varied and never have had anything that was disappointing A great restaurant "
    Dined on 5/31/2014
  • "This is the second time that I've been to Tomatoes, but my wife and her family have been going for years. It's a great place for a special dinner or to hang out at the huge bar! The food was only surpassed by the service from the knowledgeable staff. Additionally, every employee in the restaurant was friendly and courteous. The bonus for us this year was leaving just as the sun was setting across the water just outside the door. Highly recommend Tomatoes to any one in or near Margate."

  • "soft shell crab only fair not worth the money not any great atmosphere very strange valet parking"
    Dined on 5/23/2014
  • "I can always count on Tomatoes. When I'm in the bar eating from the bar menu or choosing from the restaurant menu while someone else gets SUSHI or a lighter bar menu, everyone is very satisfied with their meals drinks and music and the lively atmosphere. In the restaurant, though it is right next to the bar, it is more relaxed, upscale, and special. There is plenty to choose from on the menu and I've never been with anyone who didn't like their meal from start to finish. Whether romantic dinner for two, relaxing with a special friend, special occasions, bigger groups, it all works. This us our favorite NJ shore restaurant. "

  • "I have been here several times. We had a reservation for 8. The hostess said, when we showed up, we had to wait 15 minutes for a table. Some of our party began to wander outside to see the bay sunset. Then in a minute another one she could seat us now. They clearly had a table waiting for us. And the food was just okay, not worth the price. In the winter the food was very good. It doesn't seem that the summer transition has been that great."
    Dined on 5/26/2014
  • "Even though it was loud and noisy, the service and food were excellent. The standouts were the Gaspacho with crab and Chilean Sea Bass. "
    Dined on 5/24/2014
  • "The Food is tasty. there is sushi, Italian entrees as well as the chefs creations that have become a staple item ! fresh fish is amazing we love the Lobster Island style, its my favorite and My husband Loves the Tuna. There is a great bar menu as well. there is something for everyone."

  • "I took my wife there for her birthday and our anniversary that was recommended by a friend a year ago. You never what to expect sometimes. My and I have been dining around South Jersey and Philly, and this one has just been added to my favorites. Our waitress Abby was excellent, and very knowledgeable of the menu, on point to our need. As far as for the food? well, it was money well spent. From appetizer to desert, there is no regret. Make sure you have money in wallet. Dinner for me and my wife was $150+ and Tip, and worth every penny. We did go WAY over the percentage of tipping because Abby was just EXCELLENT! "
