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.

Its not amazing, hip, or particularly posh. It is a great place to drop in for good pasta, solid appetizers and entrees. Even all around. Priced fair as well! the staff is very friendly.

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.
