La Tomate Ratings and Reviews
Third time there, possibly again, not sure. Waiter over-worked and never checked with us after server brought the food to see if we were okay...we weren’t. Girlfriend’ entree wrong, I had to get up and go find the manager. He made it right, but still a pain. Appetizers: bruschetta too hard and difficult to eat, calamari good, olives good and Caesar salad very good. Entrees were tasty. Mixed drinks no alcohol. Gets back to service. This was a problem the other two times...slow and NO follow-up to see how we were. I guess we return because of the entrees.
La Tomate is a neighborhood gem as much for the wonderful service and friendly atmosphere as for the delicious food, the great out-door-on the avenue dining in good weather as well as the cosy atmosphere that makes a person or a family gathering feel special no matter what time of year it is!
I have been to La Tomate several times and every time I eat there I enjoy the meal immensely. This was my first time having brunch and it was no exception. The bottomless mimosas were wonderful and the food was delicious. We had a lovely window table where could watch passersby and enjoy their incredible food. Their prosciutto makes you wonder whether you are in Italy. And there service is old world courteous.
Below average food and very disappointed! I ordered my pasta bolognese and within three minutes of my order my food arrived. The plate was super hot which leads me to believe they don’t make it to order. They have pre made sauce and microwave it! The wine selection wasn’t good and neither was the food selection . I will honestly say that this was my only bad meal while visiting Washington.
The evening was perfect. We had a great table outside on a gorgeous night. The server was excellent. The timing of the meal was perfect and they made the birthday celebration so special. And the meal was fabulous. Everything was excellent. My new favorite restaurant. Local feel, authentic and I felt like I as in Europe. Outstanding. It is truly a neighborhood gem with a downtown vibe.
Great place for a simple meal and chat. I wish there were more options on the menu such as soups. Moreover, the food was delicious!. I would appreciate putting a note on the menu about the gratuity being added to the bill for groups of 5 or more. I had to explain my international friends about the rule of the gratuity. They were in shock of the addition of the tip to the bill.
I loved our simple pasta dishes...the tomato sauce was rich and flavorable and definitely home made. The bread was equally good as was the simple green salad I requested. The wine menu could be stepped up, but otherwise I wouldn't change a thing. It feels like a small, intime restaurant in Europe with a small garden and outdoor seating to boot!
