As if grandma had cooked for us today! Delicious!
Cute place with a nice patio and lots of indoor seating in little nooks so it doesn't feel crowded. The salmon was very good; will be back to try their pasta.
Food was very good. The outdoor patio was wonderful on a gorgeous evening. The service could not have been worse.
Came back after a long stay away feom DC and found it better than before!
Cozy neighborhood place for fresh pasta. Interesting and relatively varied menu. Nice presentation and good service. Misses the mark on a few basic things, like Caesar salad. Wine menu could be better, especially by the glass. That said, it has a lovely outdoor space and more than meets neighbors desires for good food.
Got a table in an uncomfortable part of the restaurant. The waiter made the best of the lousy location & experience. Food was excellent.
La Tomate is a wonderful place to dine! I had their Caesar Salad with salmon, and it was excellent. The salmon was perfectly grilled. We ate outdoors and while the day was a warm one, the area was covered and had fans. We were very comfortable. I would highly recommend La Tomate.
This is one of my favorite spots in DC, great food, atmosphere. I bring here all my out of town guests.
Nice place, pleasant and kind service the owner a very classy woman, I was lucky enough to meet the cook, brilliant and very friendly person, certainly a place to recommend
One of my favorite restaurants!
The food at La Tomate is wonderful, but overpriced. The service was slow and the manager/owner was rude and unkind to her waitstaff.
Relaxing meal, very good food! Two in our party had the Pasta A Nero, which I would highly recommend. Attentive service, staff made you feel special without it being overkill.
Amazing we will def be back again. The food was delicious
Great meal with ubniwue options and lovely ambiance
Had the beef & the risotto, salmon starter. Would recommend, nice to sit outside, cool place.
We had the mozzarella and prosciutto plates. Very generous portions! Excellent gelato, would prefer bread without garlic snd oil.
Nice light food outside dining friendly prompt service.
La Tomate is a great favorite. The food is delicious the service attentive but laid back 9no rush, no planting the check at the table as soon as dessert is delivered), the location excellent, and outside seating comfortable and not right on a noisy street.
Service was slow and the food was average.
The food was wonderful! The cacio e pepe was the best I've had in DC. The pasta was fresh, the service was wonderful. Would definitely recommend to a friend.
Delicious and affordable 7-course brunch special. Our waiter was fantastic and attentive. Love the outdoor seating. Would go back again!
Took friends for their first visit. Everyone enjoyed La Tomate. All of us had cocktails and salads to start. Dinner was pasta Nero, beef and pork dishes were outstanding. Great time catching up and nice to see a full house under the good covid rules that are slowly loosing.
Great Mother's Day meal. Food was excellent. Outdoor seating was great. Service was very attentive.
Great to see a full restaurant, or at least getting back to normal. Great COVID protocols and everyone have a good time. Cocktails, salad and salmon were perfect way to start the evening. Rigatoni and Pasta Nero were the dishes. Staff was very nice and everything was nice !
Lovely birthday dinner for my friend and I who share the same birthday! I had delicious saffron risotto and we were gifted tiramisu for dessert! Great ambiance on the patio where we sat!
I love this local gem. I enjoy the food, the ambience and the atmosphere.
Outstanding dinner. La Tomate has totally upped their game. Plan on going back soon.
Very pleasant afternoon meal (late lunch) , tasty meal, genial waiter, potent negroni. We were having a catch up after a year, so didn’t mind the really slow pace — in fact very much appreciated not being rushed- but most of the other customers seemed to be having “brunch” so they were in all you can eat/drink mode that kept the staff busy. If you’re hungry or in a hurry and are there on a lazy afternoon, you probably should mention it. We weren’t, so didn’t, and we were happy to wait an hour for our food.
Fantastic quality and selection for appetizers, main course and desert. Wine was delicious as well. Service was top notch
Took a visiting friend to La Tomate and we had a great time. Good time relaxing over some beer and wine. We started with salads and each later have calabrese pasta which was perfect. Great flavors! Staff and service always helpful.
I met two friends there for our first ever restaurant visit in a long time. The food was delicious, the three course lunch menu was such an amazing deal, the service was superb and the decor nothing short of charming. We had such a good time and made it just in the nick of time for our visit to the Phillips practically across the street. We will be back!
Yummy. The only thing that could be improved ... the bread. I'll be back!
La Tomate is the best! The porch was comfortable, and it's almost free-air season!
Love the prosciutto and cheese boards. Melt in your mouth good with delicious bread and olive oil.
The ravioli was outstanding.
This will continue to be a favorite!
Very creative food options. There isn't fried calamari but rather a mixed fried/non-fried calamari dish with capers and other vegetables and broth-based. It was tasty! The menu is a bit away from the norm of Italian food, and it's good!
What a wonderful surprise- a true gem! We will return again and again!
Great atmosphere. Staff was very attentive and helpful. Food was delicious. Everything you could want from an Italian bistro!
Grilled Octopus was an excellent starter as well as the Burrata. Excellent cocktails and a relaxing start to dinner. Cacio e Pepe and Pasta Nero were the main dishes. Prepared and served perfectly. Staff and service always great.
All the food we ordered was fantastic and not rushed. COVID protocols in place both inside and out, and the staff was phenomenal!
