    First of all food as usual was supreme. For appetizers we had shave Brussel sprout salad (my fave!!!), parmesan crusted asparagus cooked to perfection and crab spinach dip. We had enough that we had for lunch the next day for 3 of us. Dinner was sea bass, salmon and tempura maki. My overall rating was a 3 because of service. Our waitress passed by our table 3x before asking if we had room for dessert. She was more concerned with the 2 tables one each side of us instead of us. Our meals came after a 3rd party had been seated AFTER us. They also had appetizers so they hadn’t ordered leas then us. Our dinner was taking awhile my mom asked because she is a diabetic and had taken her insulin. We received such an attitude about inquiring that it put us off for the rest of the meal - which is where the food made up for her offensive attitude. I rarely do less then a 20% tip even with bad service but I felt like a 2nd class citizen that I tipped like one.

    The food at tomatoes is consistently good. One person’s order was made incorrectly and the waiter corrected it and took it off the bill which was appreciated. The only complaint is that the clearer was too quick to take away appetizers we weren’t finished with. He took away a couple of pieces of sushi that probably would have been eaten. Overall we had a good night there as always.

    It is a wonderful restaurant. Everything was expertly made. It is a must go to place. However, be prepared to be there at least 2 hrs or 3! For dinner on a Saturday night with huge crowds and noise. This was after Labor Day too.

    Tomatoes was the perfect place for a date night! Dianne was our server and she was great! The food was delicious! We had the muscles in red sauce, the spinach and crab dip, the wedge salad, peppered salmon sashimi, the Jason, Karen, and Melissa sushi rolls. I also had the lemon drop martini that was perfect! The only down fall was the table next to us received a basket of bread and roasted garlic. We didn’t receive that but I wonder if it was because we only ordered sushi as our entrees. The bread would have been perfect to dip in the broth that was left from the muscles but then again we had enough food and really didn’t need the bread anyway. After dinner we walked across the street and watch the sunset on the little dock. It truly was a beautiful evening from start to finish. The meal was pricy but you expect that in Margate and the sushi really was some of the best sushi I have ever had.

    Our waitress ruined our experience - first of all. she did not mention any of the specials .. after we received our food (lukewarm) we overheard her reciting many specials to the table next to us: (when I asked her why, she said we seemed to already know what we wanted)?; we did not get bread; table next to us did, water glasses were empty - had to flag someone to refill; cappuccino was spilled over on saucer and had no spoon — overall very bad experience.

    The ribs were dry and chewy, not particularly tender. The wrong wine was delivered to the table twice. I don’t know whether it was a bait and switch. Certainly overpriced for the experience.

    Lemon wedge in a Bulleit Rye Old fashioned??? Bartender needs lessons and/or be forced to drink what he poured....terrible! Sushi, very good for Jersey shore area, but waaaayyyy overpriced for such small portions. Those things said, we'll return and as a former bartender, I'll make certain he knows how to make an Old fashioned!

    This was a terrible experience. Our friend who we booked for was made to wait 25mins before she was checked in and seated. She then wasn’t checked in properly so we got a notification from you that we missed the booking. The service was slow. Sides were brought 15mins after the main. No cutlery was brought at first. Was our friend treated differently because she is a person of color? I hope not. But if so, shame on Tomatoes. They need to apologise for this awful experience.

    Tomatoes has long time been a favorite of ours. Our waitress was friendly and engaging. We had the deep fried calamari for an appetizer. LOVED IT. I ordered a gazpacho with for a starter. It presented beautifully but it was bland. My oysters were delivered at the same time as the gazpacho all while the entire table hadn’t been served our beverages. My drink arrived when my appetizer was almost finished. My sister-in-law ordered the pasta with crab and LOVED it. My husband had flat iron steak and LOVED it. I had the scallops: VERY GOOD but a tad over cooked. My brother in law ordered a sushi platter that came out over 1/2 after our meals did and he was understandably cranky which put a damper on things. The food was coming out haphazardly. My brother-in-law wanted to leave a crummy tip and I explained it wasn’t her fault and we proceeded to pick up the check when it arrived. Our waitress was a sweetheart and I wish I remembered her name. The staff was working very hard. Love Tomatoes. We'll be back.
