We have been to the establishment several times over the course of 6 years and have had nothing but great experiences each time.

It’s definitely worth going for your own experience.

We were a party of three and one dinner never made it to our table. When we complained and asked for the manager she never made it to our table either. The third dinner showed up when the others were finished eating. I asked for it to be packaged to go and that they take it off the bill. In fairness to them they did that. When the bill came (and we did add gratuity), we also wrote a note indicating the food service was poor. The server crossed it out and wrote excellent service on the copy that needed to be signed. We’ve been going to tomatoes for many years. We understand covid has affected tremendously. Not sure last nights events were related, simply a poor experience.

Baby Octopus tacos (starters) were a delicious surprise. From the sushi to the main courses everyone was pleased. Swordfish, Chilean Seabass & Veal Milanese were very good.

The food and ambience are both good but this particular visit to the restaurant was tarnished a little for two reasons:
1) we ordered the Sushi Family plus the Jason roll. The latter was somehow missed off the order and by time it arrived the meal had finished.
2) we booked online and in the section where it asks if there are any special occasions I added it was my partner’s Birthday celebration. A day prior a text from the restaurant asked for booking confirmation and to let the restaurant know if celebrating anything special which again I did. On arrival I reminded the reception that it was a birthday. During our meal two adjacent tables had a little birthday acknowledgement but all I received was the check. Having answered the restaurants question about celebrations 3 times I had high hopes and felt sad and somewhat embarrassed that my partner did not have his birthday acknowledged.

I am sure the restaurant does not discriminate against same sex couples but nevertheless I couldn’t think what else would account for it.

We honestly do like this restaurant and will continue to eat there on occasion and wish the management and staff good luck and success as the restaurant world returns to something akin to normality post COVID.

Dinner was delicious and our service was great. I had the Chilean seabass and my husband had the butcher’s burger both served exactly as ordered. The apple pie ala mode was so good! We really enjoyed everything and unfortunately didn’t have any leftovers. lol.

Our waiter was especially helpful. However, he could not help the overwhelming noise. People near us were very, very loud. It was really difficult to hear hear each other. We are considering not returning because of the noise level. Also, at 7:30 Saturday nigh, the restaurant was out of Guiness, supposedly since the day before. That sounds absurd. For more than $100 for 2 people, it was not a satisfying evening.

I have previously served in several restaurants including fine dining. The service at Tomatoes is top notch. My wife and I were having a date night and decided on Tomatoes (table ready on-time for our reservation that was made the prior night). Our server was polite, professional and very knowledgeable to the menu, specials and drinks. Also, server etiquette was on point throughout our time there. The same can be said about the server assistants and food runners. We will be back!

Good food. Enjoyed the sushi. The salads are good and the octopus tacos were wonderful. Rather noisy but okay at the table. Attentive wait staff. The hostesses are disengaged and almost surly. The restaurant makes you give a credit card and will levy at $50 fee for a no show. They say you have to be there within 10 minutes and that there is a 90 minute table dining limit. This is all okay for a busy place. But then don’t make me wait for my table. After a 15 minute wait they then texted the table was ready and then told me it wasn’t and we had to wait some more. Other than the hostess interaction it was a very good dinner.
