Diner Reviews
  • "Always a favorite of mine, this summer the food has been sub par every visit. I am pretty certain that there have been changes in the kitchen that are for the worst. I have never ordered rare tuna delivered well done or eaten deep fried crab cakes at a fine ding establishment. Even the sushi is off this year. Very disappointed. After this visit, I think we are giving up."

  • "There were 6 people in our party. We were in the restaurant on a Saturday evening which is something I prefer not to do in season. Reservations are hard to get and the crowds are deep, especially around the bar! We were pleasantly surprised as our round table was tucked away in a corner where the conversation was able to be heard by all. Generally, everything from appetizers to mains were delicious. The sushi rolls were particularly fresh and good as were the salads. The snapper special for the evening was tasty and hot. Our server was not as sharp as we may have like, but he was adequate. We had to request bread, butter and a few other non-essentials more than once. We had dessert elsewhere but the meal was great eating and fun."

  • "It was way to crowded. The bar was full of people eating full course meals. No where to sit & have a cocktail while waiting. No area to wait while waiting on your table. You had to stand behind people eating dinner at the bar. Very uncomfortable feeling. The food wasn't terrible but way over priced. The crab cakes were mostly filling and not crab. When eating seafood that close to the water that's unacceptable. I was very disappointed. The outside experience and location of Tomatoes was great! Watching the sunset made the bad experience at Tomatoes not feel so bad."

  • "We come here often, 2 or 3 times a month. They were unable to get my wife's tuna, which she orders often, cooked to her liking. It came out to well done for her twice. But they did remove the charge from the bill."

  • "3 of us ordered gazpacho. All 3 said that it is "fizzy". Something gone wrong. We returned all 3. I was shocked that the soup was not taken off the bill. Not like you "tomatoes". Disappointing."

  • "Tomatoes isn't cheap but in all the times we've been I've yet to feel disappointed or short changed. The portions are appropriate and the food is high class. Chilean Sea Bass was cooked perfectly, light, moist and incredibly tasty."

  • "We waited 35 minutes for a table.....an then we're escorted to the back bar area when there were other tables available. As for the food,we never got it!!!!!" After an hour and a half wait, we were told that our ticket was lost. No real apology.... No concern...from anyone We left and ate hot dogs across the street. They were rude from the time we got there until the time we left."

  • "Wow! I have to admit I was surprised by the whole experience. We started with the garlic shrimp, which was super and if you love fresh garlic like me there is no shortage. I had the pork chop that was mouth watering and packed with flavor. My wife had the halibut that I tasted and was also very good. Our sever was attentive and on the ball. If you don't have a reservation the wait is about 60-90 minutes, but worth it! I'll be back..."

  • "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!"

  • "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."

  • "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."

  • "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!!!!"

  • "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."

  • "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"

  • "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."

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!"
