Was a little disappointed when they tried to seat us next to an adult large table Birthday when a quiet ( or what passes for quiet ) table was requested in the reservation. Was quickly corrected when I voiced my displeasure. After that all was superb. Alexandra knew just how much attention to give us and was excellent at all stages of our meal. The special was rack of lamb which I will gladly place in my top five presentations ever. Cooked and seasoned to perfection. Mussels were wonderful and the creme brûlée and warm chocolate cake topped the evening off splendidly.

Have been to this restaurant before and was quite pleased. They were off their mark on this most recent visit and need attention service staff. Majority of f&b items were good but missed the mark on veal entrée (so-so). Sushi offerings are excellent!

I had booked a 7:30 PM Saturday night reservation and when I arrived was told that the dining room was running very behind and they could not provide an estimated time for dinner. The only recommendation was to eat in the bar area. I was very disappointed, as my party was looking forward to a relaxing and excellent dinner, none of which materalized!

Guess I am at a loss as to the need for a reservation that was not honored by your restaurant.

I love Tomatoes’ menu. Literally you can get amazing sushi and your date can have spaghetti and meatballs or nachos.... Where can you go other than a diner, where everyone at the table will get their choice of cusine? It’s crazy and it’s all done so well and fresh. The tuna roll was about the freshest tuna I have ever had. I love this place!

Next the service. We were there off season on a down-pouring rainy Monday night. The waitress who likely did not plan to have a great night could have seemed a bit negative about being on the schedule that night...Nope just so nice, all smiles, super responsive and generally seemed like she loved her job. One of the better wait staff experiences I have had. I don’t remember her name but she was originally from Hawaii-ask for her when you go!

I go to Tomatoes several times a year. I find the food is sometimes really good and other times so so! Saturday ordered the short ribs with polenta and swiss chard. I asked the waitress if it was a recommended meal which she stated that everyone that she has served it to loved it. I doubt that!! It pretty much had very little flavor. The meat looked more like a beef stew in a dark brown gravy. I was disappointed. 2 of the guests ordered the cheeseburger and they were dry and just average. One of the others at my party ordered the thia bowl and said it was good. The other guest ordered the spagehetti and crab which is always pretty good. They did not bring bread til we had already been served our dinner. I go to Tomatoes for the bar scene which is busy and fun.

Had a great time Saturday night. Our waitress was excellent and attentive. A bit of a noisy group behind us but that's the luck of the draw on a Saturday night at 8:30. Large party having a good time. However, the food made up for the noise. We shared a salad (excellent), an order of sushi (excellent) and a grilled salmon dish that could not have been grilled more perfectly. We had a great meal and a great time. Would definitely go back and plan on doing so.

We imagine because we had a baby with us, we were seated on the upper level where the atmosphere was unappealing. The overhead lighting was glaring, the music too loud and it was too hot.

The server was training a new hire. Service by both of them was average at best. Impersonal.

Menu is uninspired. Execution of dishes we had was fine.

Not in a hurry to return.

Six for dinner. First time diners at tomatoes. Found it on Open Table. Wine list is well constructed with good range and reasonable markup. Food choices are innovative. We don’t eat sushi, but many selections there. Had a shaved kale salad with walnuts/cranberries - outstanding flavor. Group had fish specials, a rice bowl with carrots and chicken that was excellent, and shellfish. Everyone loved the food. Waiter was professional and attentive. Owner pulled me aside to ask how we liked the meal. Overall solid 1st experience. Will be back.

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 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.
