Rainy night at the shore but as usual Tomatoes put a smile on our face. Our "go to" choice for consistently good food and friendly service. We always get maki rolls, either as appetizer or several for a whole meal.

I have been to Tomatoes many times over the years but was very disappointed with the food and our server. My husband ordered the skirt steak which had hard to chew. Our server seemed bothered when I asked for more water . I was given a gift card for my retirement and was dissappointed with the overall meal .

My absolute favorite!!!!!! I spend all summer in Margate. Tomatoes is our favorite for happy hour, a quick bite at the bar, a celebration, etc. There is a huge variety for everyone - burgers, sushi, vegan, gluten free, gourmet etc!

My husband and I dined at Tomatoes last Saturday evening. It is a popular spot and we felt fortunate to get a reservation. When we first arrived, it was loud in the dinning room, because everyone was enjoying themselves. As the restauarant thinned out, after a time, it was easier to converse with each other. Veronica, our waitress was great. Clearly she was busy but she never made you feel like a bother. My martini "was the drink I paid for". We shared the octopus, it was wonderful. My husband had the salmon and I, the duck. Both were excellent. I would highly recommend Tomatoes as a Margate gem; well worth our 40 minute ride to get there - enjoy!!

Been here many times . Unless you want sushi and a drink then this is the menu for you. Other than that, menu was very scarce for the other selections.. Not a variety of choices. Seems like I always get the same fish because nothing else suits me.
( I don’t eat red meat or mushrooms,corn).
Next time definitely doing sushi and bar. Drinks are good!
Definitely can’t get a table in season unless you eat extra early or extra late. We lucked out because it was mid September and we ate early. Weekends they have DJ but booths in bar are first come.

Yum! Finally someone made a variation on the Wedge Salad, and an upgrade! Try the Margate Wedge. Outstanding. Excellent sushi rolls, and such awesome combinations, making it hard to choose. Vibrant atmosphere, accommodating groups and small tables. Loved it!

Tomatoes was incredibly underwhelming and dissapointing. The food was very average and overpriced. They did have a nice selection of GF and vegetarian options however nothing ground breaking - easily made in your own home for a third of the price Tomatoes charges. The vibe was weird. It was like eating dinner in a club. There was a DJ shoved into a random corner. It was as if they were trying to be cool and hip. Missed the bar.

Food was very good. However, the service left a lot to be desired. One of the dinners didn’t arrive until the others were half finished with their meals, an extra appetizer we ordered was forgotten, no sugar or spoon was delivered with an expresso coffee, the noise level was very high combined with loud music.

We ate here twice during a week at the shore. It is always a great meal, very creative food, presented well, service is excellent. Our waitress Veronica was particularly friendly and helpful. The menu is very seafood/fish/sushi dominant and I am a quasi vegetarian who only eats poultry for protein. I had a fantastic eggplant appetizer and a grain/veggie bowl. My husband had fish chowder and duck. All were excellent. The prior weekend, he had oysters and halibut and I had a salad and chicken dish with mac and cheese side...yummy! Restaurant has a good vibe and terrific food to match.
We will always try to get a reservation here whenever we are in the Margate area by the shore. Well worth the trip.

I went with a party of 5 and 4 of us loved our meals. The fish was fresh and outstanding with great flavor combinations. The only one of our party not to care for his dinner ordered the duck and it was a bit over cooked making it dry. It is still one of our favorite restaurants and we wish we didn't need to make reservations more than a month in advance.

The $34 skirt steak, which I had had once before and which that time was delicious, was tough as leather this time. The management quickly switched it out for crab cakes, which were ok (not great for the price, $30) and that was that. Service was very good, manager came over, erc. But I probably will not go back.

Everything was fantastic! Delicious dairy-free corn chowder made with lobster stock & crabmeat! Wonderful wedge salad, and yes, there seemed to be something special about their tomatoes!The entree was crab pasta, which I chose tossed in olive oil instead of marinara. It was tasty & filling, the portion size was large! I liked the ambiance, a variety of seating options, a lively bar, filled with enthusiastic patrons.An excellent band played a wide variety of tunes and it was an enjoyable backdrop to a nice evening!

Tomatoes never disappoints! Was lucky to nab a last minute reservation on a holiday weekend (after checking Open Table for 3 weeks prior without success). Table was ready immediately, food and service were excellent as usual. After this experience will definitely check back on Open Table frequently if desired reservation is not initially available.

Noisy bustling restaurant- overall decor ok but not particularly pretty. Ordered veal Milanese and 45 minutes after I placed my order they said they were out of it. So I ordered a chopped salad with tuna and the salad came out un- chopped with large pieces of romaine and gray unappetizing tuna. Couldn’t eat it. Poke salmon bowl my friend ordered was also unappetizing - no care taken in prep. Tuna my other friend ordered was drowned in salty teriyaki. Spicy tuna sushi was excellent.
