Wonderful place for relaxing. I love this place because of the dining experience that they give their customers. I hope that they change the decoration though.

I brought a groupon coupon for this restaurant that I have never been to and when I arrived, it was like they knows us as regular customers. The guy that parks the cars was helpful and great. The manager accommodated us and made us feel at home. I would have liked to sit upstairs but my mom was in a wheel chair so it is not handicap friendly, but they made up for that. I have recommended this restaurant to all of my friends and family. I am looking forward to visiting again.

What ISN'T great about the Tomato Bistro?! I used to go here for the delicious pizzas and seriously amazing salads downstairs in the Couch Tomato. Ever since the opening/expansion of the Tomato Bistro, it just gets better. The staff is all awesome. Every server I've ever had has been really cool and nice. They have a nice beer selection that's not expensive, and they always have some beer and/or food special each night. In the summer, I go here with my wife and our dog and sit outside (there is outdoor seating for Couch Tomato AND for the Tomato Bistro). It's also a fun environment for an after-work happy hour (especially on Wednesday for 1/2 priced pints), and it's also a nice spot for a dinner with your whoever (spouse, gf/bf). Also, my wife and I are vegetarians, and there has always been delicious food available to us. And then on top of that, they just added a bunch more options that include seitan. Some of my favorite things on the menu (if I HAD to choose, because I truly have liked everything I've had) are the crispy artichokes, the grilled caesar (which is vegetarian, by the way), and the basil pesto pizza. Oh, also, the tomato soup is so so so good. I didn't expect it to be THAT delicious since it's just tomato soup, but it is! Oh, and one last thing: the "dinner special" is totally worth it.

The music they play suits my taste. The beer is also good. Their happy hour is always fun and the waitresses are so nice and quick to serve.

The Tomato Bistro is fun and tasty, but my favorite part is the gluten free options. Pizza, quinoa dish, sliders, beer....awesome!
Highly recommend.

I tried the lunch buffet when it first launched and it is reasonably priced and delicious! The variety of food that is offered is impressive. Fresh salads, pasta, soup, pizza, stromboli, chicken dish, vegetables, bruschetta bar....if you aren't sure what you want for lunch, this is a great option to try it all! I was also impressed that a beverage is included in the price of the buffet. The service during lunch was excellent and I was in and out in about a half hour. Definitely will be back again to enjoy the lunch buffet...next time I will bring friends!

The Waldorf Salad at Tomato Bistro is absolutely delicious. It was fresh with a mixture of savory flavors ... and the candied pecans are to die for. What a great way to start a meal!

Our super waitress helped us pick the outstanding Prosciutto Pizza - one of her favorites and now one of ours. I can wait to try the others.

I have been to The Tomato Bistro several times and every time is great. The soups and salads are a great starter and the flatbreads are perfect to share. The craft beer selection is perfect for the menu and changes frequently. Overall, the food and beer is great and makes a nice night out.

Couch Tomato always has quality, fresh food. They have an awesome selections of pizzas and salads. Their pizza is awesome and their salads are great. Also, the bistro is an upstairs loft that has a good selection of craft beers and is a nice place to enjoy a relaxing lunch. The bistro lives up to it's name in the fact that they have the best tomato bisque on the planet.

Pizza is wonderful, very unique! Salads are nice a big and also delicious! Great prices and good service, too! I would definitely recommend it to anyone in town for the weekend, or even somewhere to eat on the weekends for the locals of Philadelphia.

I live and work in Manayunk, so I eat out a lot in the area. I have been waiting for a place to offer something different and was so glad that it was The Tomato Bistro. Their $9.99 lunch buffet is incredible. The food is good, it is quick, easy and the best bang for your buck. If you haven't ate here before, this is a great way to try their food. Thanks for such a great lunch!!!

The Tomato Bistro has some of the best salads I have ever had. The portions are huge but no matter how full I am I always want more. I tried their new lunch buffet last week and while the selection wasn't huge all of the food was delicious and gave me a chance to try some other things on their menu that I had never ordered before. Their garlic knots are also some of the best I have ever had!

The flatbreads were very good and the perfect size. Favorite is the one with arugula and proscuitti. The goat cheese salad is great, cant beat fried balls of goat cheese. Beer selection is great and changes often. They have free valet which is unheard of in manayunk. Will be back

My 30-something daughter and boyfriend took me to The Tomato Bistro for Sunday night supper. They offered free valet parking, the waitstaff was friendly and attentive. The portions large. The menu small but very interesting. And when the Gluten Free Pizza came, I was expecting the normal cardboard crust, but this was divine! Crispy, tasty, no hint of it being GF. And it came with its own pizza wheel so I could be assured there was no cross contamination. I will be back soon!

This is hands down my favorite restaurant in Manayunk. I love it so much I decided to throw a party there in June! The menu is unique and has something for everyone. The food is amazing and always fresh. The service is excellent and I find the decor to be romantic and relaxing. My favorite part of the menu are the small plates. They are perfect for sharing! I typically order a salad, small plate and pizza between two people and it ends up being the perfect amount of food. I also recommend trying their sangria and craft beers!

I found Tomato Bistro on Yelp and was looking for a nice quiet place to have a variety of pizza's, some nice beer and a relaxing ambiance for me and my girlfriend. Tomato Bistro was exactly what I was looking for! We sat upstairs, under a gorgeous chandelier, and was served by the sweetest waitress.
For drinks we each got the beer sampler. All four were great, but I highly recommend the pair cider. We ordered a greek vegetable appetizer which was new to me but amazing nonetheless. For our main dishes we each got a different type of pizza. My guacamole pizza was OUT OF THIS WORLD. I even took home the left overs. I NEVER do that.
When we were leaving, a solo guitarist and singer was downstairs playing 90's rock. So sad I had to leave, because that is exactly what I was looking for.
I loved this place the first time I ever went and I'm so glad I found this Manayunk gem. Check it out soon!

This place has become our default date restaurant!
This is an awesome addition to our all time favorite The Couch Tomato Cafe. We couldn't wait for it to open and when we finally tried it out, we realized it was worth the wait. A lot of attention is given to fine presentation, unique flavor...and the servers were very helpful with the menu. We ended up getting the Fig Pizza and the Tortilla salad...perfect combination of flavors! Keep it up!

My kids and I had the pleasure of getting a quick bite at the Tomato Bistro in the Manayunk section of Philadelphia, PA. The overall restaurant was very inviting in terms of the decor and seating. We were able to dine upstairs for Bistro seating. From the moment we stepped inside the staff was extremely welcoming. I ordered lemonade for the children and Sangria for myself. The Sangria was on the house as it was the last glass. Also the kitchen sent out tomato bisque for us to sample. It was very good and received two thumbs up from my picky5yo. I liked the selection of appetizers which I ordered the steak tacos and the kids as usual wanted pizza. The kitchen was able to accomodate by providing the individual pizza with one side pepperoni and the other side only cheese. The steak tacos were served with pico de gallo, mango salsa, cilantro and sour cream. I tasted the pizza as well. The food was simply delish. Also two thumbs up for the cleanliness of the ladies room. I would definitely return for a girls night out the next time.

So I went here for the first time because I had a groupon, but I have been back THREE TIMES since then because it is absolutely fantastic! $10 bottles of wine on Tuesday? You got it. 1/2 price drafts of craft beers on Wednesday or ANY TIME IT RAINS? No problem. Delicious, unique food every time you go? Always. They even give you free little tea cups of their signature tomato bisque with crumbly bread sticks! I honestly can't say enough good things about this place. My favorite things on the menu are the Risotto Fritters, Braised Chicken + Waffles, and the Fig Pizza. Also, the salads are a great deal because most of them are under $10, and they are a meal themselves. Love this place.

everything about the visit was good. The service from the wait staff was excellent, fast and courteous. The menu selection was great, matched flavors. The restaurant was clean and the atmosphere was nice. Having eaten at the couch tomato before over the years, It was nice to see there wasn't a long wait. The added space did not require us to wait. I also liked the beer selection and how it was locally brewed.

This is my favorite restaurant in Manayunk. I rave about it to everyone. It has a great atmosphere, the wait staff provides wonderful service, and there's free valet!
I highly recommend the goat cheese salad, I order it every time. The pizzas and small plates are also delicious. I have enjoyed everything I've had here. During my last visit we were given a sample of the tomato bisque with a savory biscotti. It was very tasty and shows how much management appreciates their clientele.
I will definitely be back very soon.

Went to The Tomato Bistro last Friday night with my family and had an amazing time. Starting with the free valet parking, I knew this place was special. The service was exceptional and the menu had so many options, it was tough to choose from. To top it off, the option of getting a flight of beer (4 samples of beer) is an amazing concept. I would go back to try other options. Very fun and I would recommend it highly.

We recently wandered into the Tomato Bistro not sure what to expect. Being a vegan I was hesitant to go to a pizza place, Couch Tomato, to eat. I??ve had their pizza before I was a vegan, and it was amazing.
My wife wanted to pizza so off we went. Once we got inside we noticed the sign for Tomato Bistro and decided to go up. Well, we were more than pleasantly surprised. The space is clean, stylish and surprisingly warm and friendly. The wait staff was also friendly and pleasant. We had Philip.
The food! Wow!! There were vegan, vegetarian and gluten free options. Not something you run into very often unless it is a vegan restaurant. I had the vegan chili and fries. Everything was outstanding, fresh, and served with a smile. My wife had a Portobello sandwich, also delicious. We will definitely go back. Oh, almost forgot, great beer selection too. What a great find!

I must say, this place has really impressed us. We have been hearing the hype over couch tomato for years, and finally stopped in to try it out. We came back days later to try out the bistro, and both are equally exciting in their own ways. The couch tomato is a great stop for a quick ny style pizza or delicious salad, and the bistro is meant more for a night out, with some great craft beers on tap, gourmet pizzas, and small plates. We used the free valet and were thrilled about that too.

The Tomato Bistro is the perfect place to go when you're not sure what you want for dinner. The menu is split up into small plates, salads, soups, and pizzas, and the portion sizes are small enough to try items from every section. The variety of dishes allows you try a few bites of several different flavor profiles and satisfy all your cravings. I especially enjoyed the Aztec Shrimp, Goat Cheese Salad, and Chicken Cutlet Pizza. They also offer whole wheat crust for their pizzas which is a great option that's hard to find. I'm looking forward to going back soon and trying more items on the menu!

First time at the Bistro after many times at Couch Tomato. Pizza was just as good, as expected. The small plates were the perfect size; I especially loved the sweet potato latkas. The surprise of the restaurant was the upper-scale atmosphere, a welcomed change from most Manayunk establishments. You're definitely removed from the hustle and bustle of a normal Manayunk spot. The craft beer selection was also off of the charts!

Boy was the Groupon I got for this place a great investment. My husband and I had dinner here last weekend. We had 3 amazing small plates (an artichoke one, a sweet potato latke with a chutney dressing, and a farro grain with goat cheese and mushrooms), then a wonderful waldorf salad and a delicious pesto pizza. Then we had a great chocolate torte with strawberries for dessert. We are vegetarian and often have trouble finding places with an interesting variety of options on the menu that we can eat. Not a problem here, where vegetarian, vegan, and gluten-free options are clearly indicated on the menu. I only wish we lived in the neighborhood and could get here more easily. I've been fantasizing about the food all week, and have recommended the restaurant several times since we were there.

Very surprising little bistro, off the beaten path in Manyaunk. Good food, attentive service, sweet atmosphere. Definitely much larger than it looks from outside. The Bistro serves tapas-like plates for the table, great pizza and salads that can be turned into healthy wraps. Lots of delicious choices for the vegetarian, not to mention great Margaritas. We're looking forward to going back.

Tucked away on a side street in the Manayunk area of Philadelphia is this neighborhood gem. From the decor, to the service to the food, everything was warm and delightful. If you are a craft brew fan, this is the place for you. I highly recommend the pretzels with beer cheese dipping sauce as well as the flat bread pizzas. Top it all off with complimentary valet parking and this is one that there is no excuse to miss!

Was very pleased with my visit. Bustling, but pleasant atmosphere. Very reasonably-priced menu. Nice selection on the craft brew list. They even had pear cider, a personal favorite.

Noticed some diners' tempting salads while I was on my way to my table. Appealing small plate menu -- sweet potato latkes, oh my. Gourmet pizzas in a broad range of flavors -- traditional, savory sweet, smoky. Waitress made some very helpful suggestions when I was stuck between three choices. Uncomplicated dessert list.

Started with an espresso cup of lick-the-bowl-clean-it's-that-good tomato bisque soup that went well with an accompanying not-too-sweet biscotto. Next, Southwestern chicken pizza with a whole wheat crust. Just the right amount of heat from the jack cheese versus buttery smooth avocado and cooling cilantro -- all very rich without being heavy.

Saved room for dessert -- cinnamon gelato. Real cinnamon -- not that frightening, red candy stuff. Delicious.

Looking forward to future meals here!

I tried this restaurant because I had a Groupon and didn't know what to expect. But, I couldn't have been more happier. The food was extremely fresh and had a generous amount. But, what impressed me even more then the food, was the service. Our waiter could not have been nicer or more informative. I will definitely be back.

Anytime a friend stops by or is visiting from out of town, I recommend we visit the Bistro. I love their small plates, creative pizzas, and crafted beers. They have more than that, like great desserts, wine, salads, and gluten-free food. The atmosphere is casual, but very fresh. I haven't been there for one of the many musical events they've hosted, but that's next on my list!

We were amazed at the wonderful atmosphere, super-frinedly staff, and amazing food. I ordered the vegetable pizza with a gluten-free crust and was truly amazed that such a delicious concoction exists! Paired with a glass of wine, it was a fabulous meal. My husband ordered a sandwich and was equally impressed. The price was right, and we will be back again! It was a great date night, but we'll probably bring our kids the next time because it seemed family friendly as well. This place has everything going for it!

The Tomato Bistro is always an A+ experience. I have visited multiple times and am always satisfied with their wonderful selection of pizza, salads, and small plates. Also, for any craft beer lovers, they have a great selection of craft beers thats constantly rotating. They just started having a lunch buffet option on Mon-Fri for only $7.99! If you are in the manayunk area and want a good dining experience, then you must visit the tomato bistro. PS.... free valet parking.

The Tomato Bistro is an excellent restaurant. It has a variety of food that comes in smaller, reasonably priced dishes so you can share several plates. The food is amazing! Additionally, the staff is very personable and competent. I recommend the Tomato Bistro for all types of parties!

This place is great. We stopped by twice now since they opened, and have tried the fried artichokes, the mussels, a few of the different pizzas and salads, and all is amazing - as expected. Definitely try the desserts as well. They have the best cheesecake I have ever had!
