Diner Reviews
  • "Very disappointed in the quality of the food. Ordered a wedge if lettuce and it was soggy. Extremely skimpy on shrimp tempura and pasta dish with crab was not good, crab was fishy. Service was not good. Could not get pepper for dishes, nor a glass of wine before dinner was served. When we went to manager we received an apology. They honestly did not care. Will not go back."

  • "I have visited Tomatoes several times and have always enjoyed the atmosphere and food quality. The menu appears to have some new items and our meals were all very good. Tomatoes has a very lively atmosphere especially in the main bar location. Our server was personable and very knowledgeable about the menu. Will definitely return in the near future. This is one of our favorite Happy Hour spots although on this occasion we enjoyed a family dinner."

  • "Perfect as always. Cuban pork chop was perfectly seasoned. Calamari was delicious"
    Dined on 8/17/2014
  • "To start, our waitress apparently landed at restaurant two days before and wasn't trained. She was clueless about menu - portion size of fish, preparation of items, finally acknowledging she had just started. I loved my bass - though don't get pairing with carrots and string beans. Just didn't work with the Asian flavors."

  • "Noise level in dining area detracts from an otherwise well presented dinner"
    Dined on 8/16/2014
  • "Really love Tomatoes, it’s my place to start the weekend, but this time it really fell short. Started with a room temperature martini and mediocre oysters. Service was like a sprint. My guest was still chewing her salad when the entrée arrived, and instead of just turning back to the kitchen and telling our server that we were not done our salads, the kid that brought the food tried to make force it onto our tiny 2 top wedged along the entrance to the main dining room. If we had not asked to slow things down, we would have been rushed in and out in less than 30 minutes. Food was good, not great, but the rushing made everything unpleasant. Usually a favorite, I hope just an off night."

  • "Our waiter was harried and inexperienced. It took 3 tries to get our bottle of wine order correct. My seafood platter was served with no picks for eating the lobster, and no separate dish for shells and scraps. Our first disappointing experience after many prior visits to this restaurant, most likely the result of an ineffective waiter."

  • "Service was just not up to usual standards, had to request bread, long wait for check & cappuccino was terrible."
    Dined on 8/14/2014
  • "Food was excellent - tasteful, creative, & unique flavors. Service was good but not super-attentive. Big issue was noise - music too loud - like being at a wedding & sitting at a table next to the band."
    Dined on 8/13/2014
  • "We had dinner for four at Tomatoes the other evening. The couple we were with love Sushi and they very much enjoyed their meal. The service was great with a very helpful and informative server. We were not rushed and had a very enjoyable evening. We will definitely return."

  • "We go here on a yearly basis when we hit Sea Isle City. No one ever leaves hungry and there is something for everyone. I dinged the service down two stars because it took forever to get our entrees. The waitress said there was a party of 24 and it was holding up the kitchen. I failed to believe that because I noticed tables around us who had arrived after us were getting their food before us. Other then that it was a perfect night!"

  • "Overall, meal was good and atmosphere was nice. Service was great. I would go back."

  • "My husband and I are going back for the food. The tomato app was delicious! Both sea bass and salmon were creative and tasty and dishes to return for. The wine was great and we drank restaurant's Pinot Grigio. Server was friendly but had to be flagged down for service multiple times for empty wine glasses and bread that we had to request at the end of the meal for dipping into leftover broth because it never came to the table and escaped her notice. With a better server this would easily be our favorite restaurant. Hoping for better service next time!"

  • "Never had a bad meal. Love the energy. Love the drinks. Love the music"
    Dined on 8/10/2014
  • "Portions have shrunk but prices have increased over last few years. Salt & pepper calamari still a winner but portion was skimpy (used to a larger portion at half the price during happy hour). Hawaiian roll a winner, as was sea bass. Duck was over-done and flavorless (usually good - maybe chief had a bad day). For many years duck with blueber Happy hour and bar menus in tavern section are good deals, but don't expect gourmet meals. Drinks are good - no skimping here. Used to receive half roasted garlic with bread but now expect few cloves not sufficient for all diners. We requested extra garlic and bead, but when check arrived I was surprised to see a charge of $1.75 for garlic! Service was good, friendly and attentive to our needs."

  • "Much too noisy. We were a couple of two placed in the middle of the floor. Our table was repeatedly knocked into. the room was much too loud. We could not even hear each other talk. We ate in 45 minutes. Couldn't wait to get out. Didn't even stay for dessert. Its more a Bar Scene than a nice Restaurant."
    Dined on 8/9/2014
  • "Great food and service. The menu choices seemed to be smaller and not a place for people who like lots of choices of fresh fish. Otherwise wonderful."
    Dined on 8/9/2014
  • "This is by far our favorite restaurant in the area. We love the food, the service (our server was both knowledgeable and helpful). Would highly recommend Tomatoes to anyone in the Cape May to Atlantic City area. It's worth the drive!"
    Dined on 8/9/2014
  • "Always consistently excellent service and food. Corn crab chowder a favorite. Sushi and fish dishes are fresh and delicious. They often run out of many desserts-put your order in early."
    Dined on 8/8/2014
  • "I have no complaints about the food would actually Rave about my whole experience if I did not have to wait 40 minutes past my 8:30 reservation (late but all that was available) did not get our delicious entrees until just after 10pm"

  • "Going to the Jersey Shore is all about a night at Tomatoes for us. The meal is always great and so is the service. Now they also have a shuttle service for local customers which is a nice touch. If you are in the area you should give it a try."
    Dined on 8/7/2014
  • "Tomatoes continues to be one of our favorite places to eat! The menu selection, which includes sushi, never disappoints! Our last reservation was on a VERY crowded snd bustling Tuesday evening, yet our server was polite, attentive and professional.... and the food was delicious! We would definitely recommend!"
    Dined on 8/6/2014
  • "We were close to not visiting this restaurant this year after doing so several times over the last several years, due to it being very noisy with service declining each year. Things have improved this year, substantially. We sat in the room between the bar and the main dining room and it was noticeable quieter where we dined vs. the main room and bar, which remain quite noisy. The food remained very good and our server was much better than we recalled from last year."

  • "Food is always delicious and consistent. Atmosphere is energetic, noise volume is moderate to high. Service is excellent."

  • "I travel 2 hours to this place all the time for there crab cakes!!! I don't have to be going to AC, it could be a regular dinner and 2 hours home that is how good this place is. Every one I know that is going to Atlantic City gets this restaurant as a must visit from me and I tell them to bring me food home :)"

  • "I've been going to this restaurant for more than 15 years. It is the favorite of me and the wife. We always each get a couple of drinks, an appetizer each ($25 total), $35 worth of sushi, and split a $30 entree. Sometimes desert (although no more spiced banana cake - boo.) We were told this year, for the first time, that there was a $10 sharing charge to split the entree. I get it that two old ladies wanna come in and share an entree, you need to charge a split plate fee. But we're not those people. We're spending a lot of money on everything else. The share charge is HIGHLY offensive. Waitress apologized, but when people feel nickel and dimed, they don't return. Still contemplating whether we will....food was great."

  • "My husband and I love eating (and drinking) at Tomatoe's whether it is at a table or grabbing a bite and drinks at the bar. The food is delicious and fresh and we could eat there everyweek!"

  • "always fun and best sushi around. Eat here a lot in the summer"
    Dined on 8/1/2014
  • "I was very disappointment with dinner here. Staff was aloof and not attentive. The space is very large and loud with no intimate feel. Apps were simply bad (mussels filled with sand and octopus burnt to a crisp). Dinner (sea bass) was good. We passed on dessert preferring to grab ice cream at a local shop. I would not go back."

  • "One of the best dinners we have had this summer. The portions were ample, the presentation inviting and the flavors excellent. We were thoroughly pleased with our dinners and even took home a portion for lunch the next day. The gaspachio was delicious even without the crab topping, the tuna with red quinoa salad was fantastic and our shared key lime pie was a light and wonderful ending for a terrific meal."

  • "duck was over cooked and when we said something to the waiter .. he looked at us and walked away... for the price of a meal I found the food jus passable and the service less than poor... the drinks food and service at the bar was so much better for a lot less money"
    Dined on 7/30/2014
  • "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."
