    Poor customer service, servers were in hurry all the time and were impatient whenever questions were asked. Most of the time they were busy serving other customers.

    We were pleasantly surprised. Food items on their specials menu were very tasty. Cocktails were a bit on the sweet side, but good. Service was not adequate to keep us satisfied and cashed out conveniently quickly before going to the movies next door.

    Made reservations for 8pm which was allowed on open table and when we got there at 0756 was told they were closing at 8 - were very rude and after asking they seated us but kept rushing and appeared like they were doing us a favor - left and went to a much better Italian place close by with much better attitude - if closing at 8pm - don’t allow reservations at 8pm!!!

    There were 2 waiters and they hardly checked on us. Their ordering system on the phone sucks. Our food took a long time. The waiter said it's because I didn't submit the order. I know I submitted the order because we received our drinks, just not the food. The food was ok but nothing special. I most likely will not go back.

    We arrived for an early dinner and they were quite prompt in waiting on us and continued to be so even after they became busy. The menu is varied and the food was plentiful and good. While we did make the reservation through OpenTable, they said they don't take reservations, so I had to follow-up with the helpdesk to get my points.

    This was our final meal with our family before moving out of state. We made a reservation and our family all arrived. The food and everything was fantastic but sadly they were so short staffed. We were lucky to even get some extra water or refills.

    This was our first visit to Tomatina-Santa Clara. We chose the lunch special with spaghetti and meatballs, and the minestrone soup. Both were delicious, but the order of four garlic rolls put it over the top! They were amazing! We will be back.

    Food was really good! The only thing was no one told us we had to order through the app. It was hard to ask questions about the menu since we didn’t have anyone to see if we were ok or had any questions. I did like the check out process. Pay the bill on the app (especially we had a large party that splitting it was easy because everyone ordered their own) and your done. That I liked-no waiting.

    Our waiter was Jose was great. The only drawback was the fact that I had to ask for the lunch menu that matched what I saw online. He originally brought us full dinner menu which had different food and more expensive so I felt that if I had not looked online, I would have been paying more for lunch and not have known about a lunch menu.

    Strange bipolar service experience. Initially offered a very tight on space and tiny table ..moved to a more reasonable table size in the half empty restaurant. Sat waiting for 10+ minutes..had to flag down a waiter for service..ready to get up and leave at this point..then the staff figured out they had a customer. Service was fine after the initial screwup. Food quality and preparation OK...overall experience OKish.

    LOTS of food for the money. However, as others have written, it lacks flavor. This is the first time that a waiter actually gave me a dirty look for saying that we only wanted to drink water with our meals! And although we had a reservation, the hostess had difficulty finding it. And although the restaurant was mostly empty, she decided to sit us in a crammed spot, next to a table where the chairs backed into ours. And there was not even enough room to maneuver moving the chair(s) to sit down! We asked to be seated in another spot. It was a long wait for the food. The presentation of the food was BEAUTIFUL. However, upon eating it, it was really bland! Accessible parking was great. However, don't think I'll be back. Food tastes better at the Subway fast-food spot across the parking lot!

    Tomatinas always had good food and good service. They're seasonal butternut squash raviolis right now are fantastic. But the price is ridiculous with the tip the cost us $33 a piece to walk out of there for lunch ridiculous. I'm finding a lot lot more restaurants like that are empty now at lunch when they used to be packed out the door

    Everything about the experience was as expected, except for when we arrived. At first we were told there was no table for us because we didn't make the reservation 24 hours in advance. Then they found a table for us. If they don't want to take reservations less than 24 hours in advance, Open Table should block them.

    Went as a group for an office employee and were treated great from when we entered. We were quickly seated and promptly asked for drinks. Orders were taken and the food was delivered in a timely manner and were perfect temperature and delicious. This was our second visit and will be back for more.
