About

This restaurant is permanently closed. Permanently Closed - We do not accept reservations for outside dining.

The atmosphere is casual and fun, with colorful graphics enlivening the walls and menus. Seating is ample for families; and the whimsical tomato chairs by furniture maker Peter Danko are always a favorite. In warm weather there are 50 seats beneath the arbor for outdoor dining by the lake.

Great food and a great value. I hope that this place never closes down since we have taken our family there since it opened. It has really become a staple of the Columbia community.

The Tomato Palace is a local gem. The pizza is excellent and very reasonable as are all their entrees. The 3 Italian wines they have for $10 a bottle are the best deal in Columbia.

Isaac, our server, could not have been more pleasant.
The kitchen was backed up and he apologized for the long wait for our dinner.
Outstanding young man!!
Our group loved their meals and wine.
However the muffuletta, which I ordered, was more than disappointing. I should have stuck with an Italian dish. I won't let my poor choice stop me from returning!

We were sitting for around 10 or 15 minutes and not a single waiter. A few min more someone came to give water and we started joking that it's a bad wait to get our order. He said he's not the waiter. How much longer do we have to wait? We finally stood up and went to another restaurant. The place is so undermanned and cannot carry their customers. Sad... It was our favorite place.

The Tomato Palace was the unanimous pick of all four of us since we have been there many times before. We enjoy the fresh ingredients and the service. I have difficulty deciding between the Seafood Linguini, Sausage Rigatoni sub Chicken & the Seafood Pizza. My wife's favorite is the Salmon. Don't forget the $10 bottles of wine, especially the Montipulciano. Our service Patrick was friendly & very professional. We'll be back!

We come here almost every weekend for years. It's one of our favorite restaurants. We love coming here since it has a very friendly atmosphere, good food and very good service.
The manager is also very accommodating, caring and friendly. He makes sure everyone is okay.

Whenever we ask each other where we are going to eat for our Friday night dinner, my hubby always responds, Tomato Palace!
