I absolutely loved the tomato bistro. great location. great pizza. great beer. They had some solid options for myself(a vegetarian beer snob) and my girlfriend(who's allergic to gluten and dairy), and all at a fair price. Will be returning.
Their menu features many gluten free items. I've only ever been here for their lunch buffet. Even without the groupon or yelp deal it's a good deal for the $$. This is no "Super Buffet" with endless aisles of warming trays. There are usually or 3 salads, some sautéed veggies, a pasta dish, a meat dish, several hand-thrown pizzas, and, if you're lucky, these awesome little egg and sausage burrito things. Man, I really love those things. They have home-made potato chips sometimes, and a soup I think. Because it's a smaller layout of food, everything is fresh. The servers are constantly putting things out and replenishing. Everything is very delicious. Especially those egg and sausage things. Last time we went, it was a Saturday and they had french toast and syrup and pulled pork sliders. Egg and sausage things were nowhere to be found...until we were stuffed to the gills and we see them bring out a platter of them Man, I wished I could have fit just one more bite in, but I would have popped! The pizzas are hand-thrown and they have veggie, pizza, and meat-based. The staff is always friendly and accommodating. Highly recommended if you want a buffet-style lunch but more than steam tables full of salty packaged pre-made stuff!
I just moved to Manayunk, PA for my Senior year of college and The Couch Tomato was the first place I went to eat with my roommates because we heard such great things about it. I love restaurants that offer many healthy, fresh options and you will not be disappointed by any salad or wrap you have. My favorite wraps and salads are The Food Pyramid, Holy Chipotle, and When in Rome. The pizza is also delicious and I can't wait to try more items off the menu as the year goes on! Hands down, my favorite restaurant/cafe to eat at with my friends!
I’ve been to the Couch Tomato Bistro just 2 times since moving to the area in May 2014. Both experiences have been exceptional! FOOD: Seriously, one of the best pizzas I’ve had in the Philadelphia area, hands down! I’ve lived in Philly my whole life, so I know the importance of a thin crust and a great sauce/cheese ratio, and the Bistro delivers! The pizzas they have on the menu are creative and everything goes so well together. I’ve also had salads here as well, great portions for the price and amazing as well! The food really cannot be beat whether you’re looking for a nice weekend evening out, or a weekday lunch. The wheat and gluten-free options are also a nice touch. ATMOSPHERE/SERVICE: Wait staff is attentive and very personable. Fast service and knowledgeable about the food (which is extremely important). They have specials throughout the week (live music on Wednesday, which is so good) and Sunday nights are BYOB. The dining area is dimly lit, but not too much that your eyes are strained. Overall, since moving to Manayunk, I’ve been to most of the restaurants on Main Street, and Tomato is the only one I have visited more than once, and will definitely be going back as often as I can!
Great gluten free menu. Valet parking a great bonus! Sunday brunch is terrific!
Best gluten free pizza I have had! Knowledgeable staff celiacs no worries!
Hands down some of the best pizza Philadelphia has to offer. Fresh quality ingredients, reasonably priced, and accommodates to all my gluten-free/vegan friends? I'M SOLD. If you aren't giving this place a try you're really missing out.
At the Couch Tomato Cafe I am always satisfied with the selection, whether I want a salad or sandwich, there is a great variety. Fresh ingredients and always delicious! Such a great discovery! I loved my first dinner at the Tomato Bistro. The menu was impressive and exceeded my expectations, being that I came to eat a sandwich or salad that I'm used to at the downstairs part of the restaurant. I couldn't wait to go back. A great variety of food and drinks, perfect for a range of people's food preferences :)
Great variety of food! Lunch buffet is excellent in price and quality of food. Nice outdoor seating available. Certainly worth checking out!
I have eaten there a few times already and try something new each time. I can pleasantly say that every dish I have tried has been awesome! Plus the complementary valet parking is not that bad either!
Everyone was super knowledgable, food AMAZING, waitress was incredibly accommodating, and they served our pizza on a designated celiac-safe wood slab with our own pizza cutter to take home! Best gluten free meal we've had so far in Philly!
food and service are always great, kids menu gives fresh different options, healthy and family friendly
Food is great! They have gluten free pizza I did notice. Love the staff and the atmosphere!
Awesome gluten free pizza, salads and sliders!! Very celiac friendly. Delivers too!
Tomato Bistro is the BEST One of the best beer selections in Manayunk restaurants and their thursday happy hour flight nights are so good! They offer a great selection of gluten free options and show equality and respect to every customer. I recommend it to everyone! Bon appétit
We had a great experience at The Tomato Bistro! The service was great, and I loved the variety of unique pizza toppings. They make their own Gluten Free pizza dough, and it was delicious! Will definitely be back!
Whenever my fiancé and I have friends or family coming to town, or even want a fun date night, we go to the Tomato Bistro. You're guaranteed to find something for everyone on the menu no matter how picky your dinner guest is. I love their duck and apple pizza! Its my favorite! I don't have a gluten allergy but I always get it on gluten free crust because it tastes so good, and you get your own Tomato Bistro pizza cutter. Win, Win!!
Couch tomato has an amazing gluten free menu! I currently went gluten free for a 24 day challenge and found myself eating here a lot! Their food is delicious!
The Tomato Bistro is absolutely amazing. They have great Gluten free options!! It is the perfect date spot. My girlfriend and I come here all of the time for their delicious pizza and starters. I also love the tomato bisque. The staff is also very friendly. Overall, great place to eat.
Good selection of gluten free. Went there for lunch. Loved the gluten free bun on my sliders. Prices reasonable.
Quick background for yall! I was diagnosed with Celiac when I was in 8th grade. That means that if I want to not feel like shit then I need to eat gluten free. I am now 23...almost 24 years old. I have been out of college for about a year now....Just so you have some background. Living around Manayunk for the past 5 years I have come to know the restaurant/bar scene fairly well. Eating gluten free for too many years has given me the pleasure/displeasure (depending on how it tastes) of trying many gluten free pizzas. Any where that advertises gluten free I've for sure tried it. Fortunately for me at the Couch Tomato my tongue enjoys their gluten free pizza. One of the few places I've been that actually makes their own gluten free dough. Most places just buy frozen crust and throw toppings on it. As I said, I've been gluten free since 8th grade; I have ate pizza containing gluten as far as I can remember. The gluten free pizza at Couch Tomato brings back the nostalgia of just being able to have a good pizza again. Good gluten free foods are hard to find and it is hard for me to find a quick food to eat. I can put in an order at Couch Tomato get a gluten free pizza and be on my way to the bars with a full stomach. What more can a guy like me ask for?! Along with the pizza they have great gluten free soups that change daily along with sandwiches and salads. If your gluten free the place just makes sense.
One of the top tasting gf pizzas. It was superb!!
Great dinner date place. Fantastic service and even better food. Really cool upstairs dining area that makes for a great atmosphere whether its a romantic date or just a casual night with a friend
This was hands down the best pizza that I have ever had! The staff was very helpful with providing information, as it was our first dinning experience there. The Couch Tomato Cafe is definitely more than just a pizza shop! It's so worth a try!
The Tomato Bistro is one of my absolute favorite gluten free restaurants! Only been there twice so far but I cant wait to go back. Everything on the menu sounds so delicious but I ordered the same thing both times just because it was so good. They are better than I could have imagined, seriously one of the best meals Ive ever had out to eat. The food is amazing, filling, and comes out really nicely arranged. Best sweet potato fries ever, too. Both times that I ate there our waiters were perfect, one of them was even helpful enough to go find out the name of the radio station that was playing when he overheard my friend talking about how much she liked it. Im a vegetarian and they had a ton of options for me, you can even substitute in fake meat for any of the dishes! This is one of the only places my friend with a very severe gluten allergy trusts, which is why I originally ended up trying it. Oh, and they valet park your car for free. And give you free samples of amazing gluten free tomato bisque. I could happily eat here every day.
I am so glad we drove 30 mins across Philly to eat here! the Gluten Free pizza was nice and crispy!! I could hold it in my hands and fold it, just like Jersey pizza but Philly style, and Gluten free of course! if I lived around here I would eat here regularly!!
Amazing. Darin (Mgr?) made me extremely comfortable with their food safety efforts. They served us delicious tomato soup shooter, short-rib pizza and sliders; all GF. Valet parking makes this Manayunk spot completely doable. We will definitely be back.
The Tomato Bistro is absolutely fantastic! My girlfriend suffers from a gluten allergy and the staff is extremely helpful in making sure our dining experience is amazing. The GF pizzas and sliders are to die for and you would never guess that they are gluten free! They are better than regular pizzas in my opinion!
The Couch Tomato has really good pizza and soups. I really like the environment here and the people are always nice and really helpful!
Amazing gluten free options. Great variety of salads, unique delicious wraps and pizzas. Lots of healthy options. Loved it!!
I love the decor here. We enjoyed the Saturday buffet and it was so healthy AND yummy! I was trying to stay away from pizza so I had a lot of filling salads...I ended up having a few slices of pizza in the end anyway. The quinoa salad on the menu looked great at the table next to ours. http://www.TheTomatoBistro.com
so many gluten free options, delicious food, super friendly service, a menu you can really work with. I've had countless amazing meals there!!! Check it out for yourself! http://www.TheTomatoBistro.com
I had the unlimited brunch buffet and it was some of the best brunch I've ever had! There were so many options, great prices, and the atmosphere was so inviting. They also have free valet parking which is ideal in Manayunk! I will definitely recommend The Tomato Bistro to my friends and I can't wait to go back for other meals! http://www.TheTomatoBistro.com
My husband and I visited the Tomato Bistro for the first time on Friday afternoon 1/24. We decided to eat here because of the gluten-free options, but were pleasantly surprised with all of the vegan options as well. We each ordered a personal pizza (him a white pizza on GF dough, and me the fig pizza with vegan cheese on GF dough) and we both thought they were excellent. I would highly recommend this place for both allergen-free and non-restricted diets! You can check out their awesome menu at http://www.TheTomatoBistro.com.
Couch Tomato is a very unique dining experience. My GF and I, love going to this restaurant for their weekly buffet on Saturday and also their unique salads and pizza. The mood of the restaurant is very relaxing go with friends and family. A place you can take a person on a date. Tomato Bistro definitely one of the best restaurants in Manayunk, PA. http://www.TheTomatoBistro.com
Good gf pizza. They were very patient with all of my questions.
Hidden gem on main street! Great pizzas and healthy salads They have lots of gluten free options and the gluten free pizza is great! I would definitely recommend this place for casual dining upstairs or downstairs for take out. Never had a bad experience here. http://www.TheTomatoBistro.com
My husband is gluten intolerant and this place is gluten free heaven. Finally! You cannot tell the difference between the gluten free pizza and the regular pizza. The gluten free bread used on the sliders is amazing also (I actually prefer it over the regular buns). And to be certain that your pizza is not tainted, you have your own pizza cutter. Thank you Tomato Bistro! http://www.TheTomatoBistro.com
Lots of gluten-free options, including pizza crusts. Great food and definitely worth a visit! http://www.thetomatobistro.com
Great food and atmosphere! My girlfriend and I went to a Sunday Lunch Buffet which was nothing short of amazing and went back for round 2 the next weekend on a double date! The options are incredibly unique, but not weirdly so. The folks at the TB (http://www.TheTomatoBistro.com) have certainly put forth the time and effort to find incredible flavor combinations that you would never think of. Their vegetarian and gluten free options were also very plentiful if that is what you are looking for.
The Tomato Bistro has a lot of unique appetizer type dishes. The pizza is the main draw for me though. In my opinion, this is the best pizza in the area. I am also a vegetarian so I appreciate how they specify which dishes are vegan/vegetarian friendly. There are gluten free options too. Check out their website at: http://www.TheTomatoBistro.com
I have been to the Couch Tomato multiple times. Both in the bistro and upstairs restaurant area. It is one of my favorite restaurants in the area. They have really great appetizers called small plates. It is like fancy tapas food but without the price. Their pizza is flavorful and there are a lot of unique flavors/ingredients to try from. The best part is that they have gluten-free pizza, rolls, desserts and are very accommodating in this respect. While their pizza and sliders are delicious my favorite thing I have gotten so far was the garlic cheesy bread and I added pepperoni. This is only the most delicious gluten-free bread-related product I have ever tried! I have been gluten-free for over a year now due to being allergic. When I come here I don't feel like I compromise value and delicious taste because I have to be gluten-free. Also, almost forgot to mention our waiter each time has been sweet and patient. There is nothing worse than having a waiter who has an attitude having to check things because you have an allergy.
We arrived at The Tomato Bistro at 3:30pm, which was still technically lunch, so that was cool. We got an awesome beer flight of several tasty craft beers (cider for me!) and some super yummy sliders. I particularly enjoyed the fried egg slider topped with apple jam and my partner liked the spiciness of the pimiento slider. The house-made chips were delightful. The portions were just enough to feel full, but not over-full. Will definitely be back to try their dinner menu and lunch buffet. Great place for gluten-free, vegan, and paleo diets!
We love The Tomato Bistro! We had been looking for restaurants that were healthier than the usual fare, that had vegetarian and gluten-free options, and The Tomato Bistro is just what we were looking for. The food is delicious - I particularly love the tomato bisque. The pizzas are also fabulous - I get the whole wheat crust. My husband gets gluten-free and I have to say that I like that too! The service is friendly, and we love the free valet service, which in Manayunk is a huge plus. Definitely try The Tomato Bistro.
have yet to have a bad experience at the Tomato Bistro. I have celiac disease and I cant tell you how happy I am to find gourmet gluten free pizza. I have tried almost everyone and they are amazing. Ill even dunk the pizza into the tomato bisque. (try it, youll thank me later) The scallops are amazing too. I love how they have great specials each night. Especially half-priced wine! You will not be disappointed at the bistro. The people and the décor all make it a fun place to have dinner or lunch!
Loved the menu here. They have a lot of great gluten-free options including the pizza crust, which is absolutely delicious. The staff is knowledgable about the gluten free options as well. Definitely worth a try!
What a cool place in the heart of Manayunk! I love the way The Tomato Bistro is decorated and if you sit on the top floor, you get a great view of Main Street Manyunk! The food is out of this world! Everything is so fresh and I love the presentation. Try the sliders and you will NOT be disappointed. The pulled pork is my favorite, but the kobe burgers are definitely up there! I happen to be gluten free and they had so many choices for me! The GF options are clearly labeled on the menu and I could stare at them for days trying to decide what to get, which is very exciting. I was really impressed with the service too. The Tomato Bistro has the friendliest waiters/waitresses I've ever seen and they're so knowledgeable and attentive. To give you an idea of how great this place is, I just moved to the area 2 weeks ago and I've been to The Tomato Bistro 2 times in the past week. It's THAT GOOD! I didn't know about the free valet, but next time, I'm definitely taking advantage of it!
Tomato Bistro is our local go to place for great reasonably priced cafe food and yummy specialty pizzas. Their lunch buffet is so worth it! Pizzas are always being changed, so you know the food is freshly made. I love customizing the salads and my husband is addicted to the chicken and waffles. If you give them your email and like them on Facebook, you accumulate points for free food and money off next visits. I've even used them for catering and the food was great and more then enough to go around on their generous platters. My daughter loves going there b/c she loves sitting on their famous red couch while I wait for my car from the valet... that's right FREE valet. She refers to the place as "the tomato place with the crayons" :) They have a great friendly atmosphere and nice bubbly servers that are always accommodating. Just bring a sweater... the A/C is always on high!
Plenty of vegetarian and gluten-free options. I'm a big fan of the salads, especially Where's Waldorf. The poppy seed dressing is divine. Try it with craisins instead of raisins. I have also eaten at the Bistro; I enjoy taking visiting friends and family members there for a night out in Manayunk. The staff are kind and helpful but please be sure to check your order before you leave! The valet parking is incomparable in Manayunk on a crowded weekend.
Margherita Pizza GF and Beer GF wonderful! My favorite pizza place in the area!
The pizza was fantastic! Any of the pizza styles can be made with GF crust. Only thing GF is limited to 10 inch pies. If you are in the area and want pizza this is the place to go.
The Tomato Bistro is one of our favorite restaurants. When you have Celiacs Disease it's almost easier staying home to eat. We first went to Tomato Bistro with another couple and had a great time! The food was delicious and I had the best GF pizza ever!!! Since then, we've been back many times alone and with our kids. They have a variety of items on their menu and every item is labeled so you don't have to guess if it's GF, Vegetarian or Vegan. There is something for the entire family. They have a full bar including a craft beer list. The servers are always pleasant and we can't wait to go back!!!
You CAN'T be disappointed! Free valet for customers, and drive-up pick-up! Really a no-brainer for great food at a decent price! Not to mention, they have plenty of Gluten-Free options, while I'm not at risk with Gluten... sometimes I like to try these alternatives. Couch Tomato/Bistro do it right, and do it well!
Best gluten-free pizza AND sliders around.
EXCELLENT! Gluten free pizza was great, they has awesome gluten free sliders (on gluten free bread) and they have a number of really good gluten free dishes as well. You even get your own pizza cutter (that's yours to keep to avoid cross contamination). Two thumbs up!
Pizza very good but my son got sick after our meal here last month. Cross contamination?
The gf pizza is super tasty, but I got sick both times went there. I think there may be some cross-contamination issues. I'm pretty bummed, because I really enjoyed their food.
Good GF pizza crust. All types can be GF except chicken. Staff knowledgeable. I also like the pear salad.
I've been all over the city looking for a decent GF pizza, and constantly come up short. I found this place after seeing a large number of rave reviews on the gluten-free philly and living simply gluten free blogs, so we tried them out. My husband and I both choose to eat GF, and this pizza is outstanding. It almost seems impossible that it is GF, since it tastes almost like non-GF, dare I say NYC style pizza?! It's a great crust, and their entire menu is very friendly to the GF theme. The atmosphere there is great too.. Highly recommend.
Stopped in and had a 10 inch personnal size pizza. The crust is thin and crunchy, tasty cheese and sauce. It wasnt the best gluten free pizza I've had but I can't complain either. I would def recommend other GF eaters if your in the area. The staff is great. Very knowledgable, friendly and ready to accomidate GF diners. They also include a free personal pizza cutter, very cute n eliminates cross contamination!
It's not often I find delicious gluten free pizza in the Philadelphia area. I live in center city and someone told me about The Tomato Bistro in Manayunk so I decided to check it out. I will now drive there every week to get some gluten free pizza and I would recommend this restaurant to anyone who is looking for some of the best pizza I have ever had!!
We got a groupon for this place after hearing a few good things, and must say they have a great thing going. We tried their gluten-free pizza, and it was out of this world. You can tell it is made on site, and it literally tasted so similar to regular pizza I had to ask the waitress several times just to make sure. Their whole menu is very gluten-free friendly, so we tried a salad and some of their small plates, and everything was really good. The atmosphere is great too. It's a good option for a night out with the wife. Great drink list too. And, they valet your car for free which is a nice touch in that town.
