Prefacing this review, coming from DC, I have high standards for food and service. Tommy’s cuisine has been the best dining experience within the radius of where I live, The Cotton Mill.
Service was exemplary, especially considering our waitress has only been working there for two days. As a person who pays attention to detail, the only faults of the waitress was when she poured the wine and when she was collecting the finished dishes.
I noticed she had an issue with getting the cork screw to work properly. Subsequently, she decided to take the bottle to the back and have someone assist with taking the cork out. What she should have done was, leave the bottle at the table and have someone come and assist her. This is minor but something I caught.
Secondly, when clearing a table, wait staff should not stack plates. This is also very minor.
The food was prepared to perfection. I always get calamari, as it it an indicator of the cooking staff’s ability and attention to detail. I don’t think I have had better prepared calamari. Although the presentation was plain, it was well prepared and tasted very good.
The main course was as good, as indicated from the calamari. I ordered the filet mignon and it was cooked as ordered. The broccolini was cooked perfectly with the exact amount of crunch, to keep the vitamins and minerals.
The waitress was extremely pleasant. Curiously, I asked I if she had training, and she said she did. Upon asking how long her training was, she said it was one day. Based on my dining experience, she did a superb job and her service surpassed her one day of training. Subsequently, as her service was exemplary, I left her a note on the receipt stating that it was the best service I have received. This is out of the restaurants I have been to, including, “La Boca,” horrible service and mediocre food, “Annunciations,” good food, decent service, “The Mill,” good food and service, and others not worthy of mentioning.
This place is a, “Must Go!”

There were ten of us,they put us in a semi private dining room.That was fine but they sat another table of ten in the same room after us! They didn’t seem to like our talking and laughing but no big deal! They got there food way before ours,they finished and left right before we got our food.we didn’t get our food until around 10pm we we’re seated at 7:15!
We were the last people to leave the restaurant at almost 11:00.I must say food was good and waitress did attend to us! We will go back though!!!

We dined for dinner ( 2 couples). A good selection of wine was 1/2 price (per bottle).
Bread and Olive Oil was brought to the table complimentary.
Pricing and Portions were average for NOLA. Everyone enjoyed their Entree's
Veal - cooked perfectly. Meatballs and Spaghetti were delicious.
The only complaint we had was the table size. The tables are more of a 2 person setting - just too tight for dining of 4 !

I had booked this reservation for 4 career bartenders who’ve been out of work due to Covid. We hadn’t seen each other bc of the pandemic and had 3 birthdays to celebrate. I’d never been to Tommy’s but had wanted to try it and saw the coolinary menu online and thought it looked incredible. I loved the ambiance and lighting as well as the decor and the mirrors and walking in and out through the wine room is a cute setup. Tommy’s blew us out of the park. Our server Leon was amazing. We ended up all ordering cocktails and appetizers and the coolinary menu and 3 or 4 bottles of wine. We stayed for hours. Leon was so kind and attentive and demonstrated such good knowledge about the menu that even thought we were literally all going to order a 3 course coolinary menu, we ordered 3 additional appetizers and a salad because the way Leon described them left us no other option but to try everything. Our glasses were never empty during the over three hours we spent there. We had planned on having a cocktail and maybe some wine with dinner but enjoyed ourself so much and Leon was so attentive we ordered several bottles. I really enjoyed the sparkling rose. The meatballs were awesome and I’m super particular about meatballs because I grew up with a Sicilian father who made his own every Friday. Spinach dip was delicious and the burrata caprese salad was awesome as well. My friends loved the crab and corn bisque, the crispy eggplant was awesome and I loved the sauces, and the artichokes were a great touch in the dinner salad. Two of us got chicken and two of us got the pork and we really enjoyed them but boxes it after a bite or two to make room for dessert and wine. The tiramisu was delicious and had a great texture and I loved the chocolate sauce but that bananas fosters bread pudding was out of this world. I contemplated asking for some of the caramel sauce to go to use at home and perhaps drizzle all over my man. The food was amazing and Leon was an immaculate server.

We felt very ignored throughout the entire dining experience. Showed up 5 minutes early for our 8:15 pm reservation, but weren't seated until 8:50. There were 4 of us, young professionals (26-30 yo) and we were treated like we didn't exist. The restaurant was filled with what looked like elderly, stuck up, loud people. We clearly did not fit in, and we felt ostracized.

Additionally, food portion sizes were way too small. "Pork tenderloin plate" was just two small pork medallions. The men in our group left the restaurant still very, very hungry.

ALSO, I was given a cocktail menu, and when I asked for a Gin Bail Smash, I was told "We are out of basil. We are actually out of a lot of things, we just got our bartender back this week so we can't make much." Thankfully, a weak French 75 was doable.

Overall, very, very dissatisfied.

When we arrived, we had to wait a few minutes, but we were greeted by two waitresses as they passed threw to take care of others, I assume you were short staffed. On the positive side, the food was excellent , our waitress was terrific, the wine was great and 50% off. Overall it was a great experience. We will recommend your establishment to friends and family, also we will be back again.

Tommy's! What happened!?! We've been to Tommy's several times and always had a positive experience. But this last visit was disappointing. The restaurant was understaffed so our server was really hopping from table to table which resulted in not-so-great service. The drinks were weak. The food (Coolinary menu) was just ok - not good.

Tommy's management - get on this and return the restaurant to what it used to be!

This may have been an issue related due to pandemic difficulties, but the service was very poor, wait times were long, and the food was not to a quality I would expect at this price point. Our dessert, which had melting ice cream, was brought to use DURING our entree. We ordered off the coolinary menu, and the waitress was very unknowledgable of anything on the menu. I ordered the "slow cooked pork in mushroom sauce" and it was delivered dry, clearly not slow cooked, and not in the sauce. The shrimp linguine entree was covered in an excessive amount of rendered butter and barely edible. The only saving grace was the half-off bottles of wine. Overall it was a very poor experience and would not recommend to anyone.
