    OpenTable Diner Since 2008

    We shared a tempura shrimp roll topped with eel as the appetizer and I had the lump crab pasta with oil and garlic. Both were excellent. Food have great flavor and it was presented attractively. Service was attentive especially by the busboys. I recommend this restaurant with only one reservation, my chocolate cake was only good, it was not great. With as good as the rest of the meal was, I was expecting to have dessert blow me away, but it was only good. Good is good.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2006

    Tomatoes food is very consistant and good. They were packed Satuday night 7/27 and the servcie was fairly quick compared to other visits. We were done with our entrees in less than hour which is a bit quick when your spending $150 a couple without ordering a bottle of wine. They asked 5 x's "how was everything" which I thought was a lot cnsidering we were only their 76 minutes. Yes, i would go back. Next time i will tell them up front we are not interested in breaking any dinning speed records.

    The food and service was excellent. One problem is that a salad is included with dinner and we only found out by accident. It was not announced. Also the room is on the dark side behind the bar which is large.

    Dined on 7/13/2008
    The food and wait staff is always fabulous - the hostesses always make you feel like you should be grateful you got in or made a reservation. They always seem to be too busy twirling their hair and when you arrive, tell you to sit at the bar, they'll find you in a few minutes. We had reservations on a Sunday nite and didn't get seated until 30 min. after our 8:15 reservation - of which we had arrived 5 min early for. I can understand that on a busy nite - but it was quite and a Sunday. At least they are consistant but it is the only thing that bugs me about the place. It won't stop us from going, but their attitude stinks.

    We wanted really excellent food in lovely suroundings and this was a great choice. Thank you for making it a memorable experience. The paintings, the mirrors, the china, the flatware -- so lovely. We did want to make one suggestion. We love the roasted garlic. At home we use a tiny demitasse spoon to take the garlic clove out of its little "pocket". It works like a charm.

    We had reservations for the dinning room but came early and decided to have dinner in the bar area. Very nice booths and some views of the bay, but if you dine in the bar go early the later the noiser it gets. Good drinks and a very good varied menu. Our server (Frank) was the best. We came from Cape May but well worth the trip. We will be back.

    Tomatoes is my favorite resturant at the Jersey shore. However I was very disappointed with my meal. I had lamb which was tough. I make lamb myself frequently and have never had a tough piece of meat. I will chalk this up as an isolated incident, its still my fav place to eat.

I decided not to send it back because I did not want to disrupt the flow of the meal. I am now sorry that I didn't send it back because I ended up not eating it and giving it to my dog!!!
