We had reservations for 7:30pm. We were not seated until 8:15pm. They said tables were not leaving after receiving their checks. It appeared to us that they over booked their reservations . A few minutes wait is acceptable but 45 is not. We were just about to leave when out table was ready. The staff was pleasant and trying very hard in a tough situation.

Very busy that night. Had to wait half out for our table and 10 minutes for our server to come over. Service was fine from then on. Always enjoy our meal at Tomatoes. Looking forward to going back.

Everything was extremely excellent. Our waitress was very charming and the food was wonderful! Could not have asked for anything more pleasant!! (Not to mention our complementary dessert for our special occasion)

Food was very mediocre
The French fried lobster tail was very tough and almost inedible
The dip was an unimaginative tarter sauce-should be something more in line with a lobster tail

They were inflexible and unwilling when asked for equivalent substitution for the sides because of dietary requirements
Their “policy” is no substitutions
You then have to rely on the chef to pair
In my case the side included was overly sweet and cloying
It was like having pumpkin spice for a side
I had the pork chop and that is what it came with
When you’re spending$200 plus at a place with hype you would expect a little more user friendly experience

Last minute reservations on a holiday weekend did not disappoint. Despite a packed house, the waitstaff were attentive and knowledgeable and the service was great! The food was awesome, especially the beet salad and tuna. Can’t wait to return.

Our first time dining here and it was terrific. Our server Ashley was very attentive and friendly. Cuban pork chop was so flavorful and cooked perfectly. We will definitely
Be visiting again shortly.

Horrible. If I could give zero stars I would. Waiter nice but non existent. Two tops so close to each other. One side of us two loud women a mix of “dance moms and housewives of nyc”. Sushi roll supposed to have shrimp tempura in it (nope!). Caesar salad, eh! Oysters so expensive and so small. Crab cakes okay but way overpriced. Scallops horrible. Sautéed in some odd fruity sauce. Inedible. Bill $130 (and we didn’t even drink alcohol). Better meal with our three kids at Olive Garden and bill? $114!!! We absolutely don’t mind paying for a fabulous meal. This place, far from fabulous!

First time sitting in the back room with the bar and would hope to never again. We were a table of six and the noise from those sitting at the bar (women) and a table of ten (women) you absolutely could not hear yourselves speak or hear the waitress speak. Arrived at 6:15 on a Thursday night so was not expecting that! But as usual the food was fantastic!

The service is not as up to par as it has been in the past . The waiters or waitresses are rewarded with the same tips as it’s how we behave but someone needs to let them know they need to step up their game again.

The server lacked knowledge of daily specials.
When notified that two of our meals (spaghetti and meatballs) were not cooked properly she acknowledged but didn't offer to deduct from the bill.
She also forgot to bring the same appetizer to another guest.

Obviously the place is popular and has been around a while. It’s the shore and the place is on the bay so people like the ambiance. The service was horrible. Though the waitress was a nice girl. I don’t think the wait staff, bussers and kitchen work in unison. I received my main dish with a long hair going through my food and curving around the plate.

Sushi was excellent as an appetizer and so were the crab cakes as entrees. The problem was the service. The entree and appetizers came out virtually at the same time. On top of that , the waiter only bought out one entree and thought we were splitting it . He was very nice but handled the table poorly.
