    Good gluten free and also vegan options. I don't eat dairy/cheese either, and they were able to accomodate easily. Service with a smile each of 3 times I have been, makes the 5 star.

    My fiance and I are frequent visitors to Tomato Bistro, and often order delivery from Couch Tomato when we're too lazy to go in person! They have an extensive, diverse menu that appeals to even the pickiest eater. I personally evaluate the quality of a restaurant on their beer list - and Tomato Bistro does NOT disappoint! I've tried a new brew each visit and am always satisfied. Overall, no other restaurant in Manayunk can offer the quality food, beverage and dinning experience at reasonable prices.

    Huge fan of the Couch Tomato Cafe so I figured I'd take my dad to the Couch Tomato Bistro for lunch during his last visit. We sat at the bar and our waitress was very nice and accommodating. As a starter she gave us a shooter of tomato soup and a savory biscotti, perfect start to lunch. My dad had the fried egg slide and the beef short rib slider and he was a big fan. I had the fried goat cheese salad and would definitely recommend it! They have the healthiest options around and I will definitely be visiting again!

    The Tomato Bistro is one of our favorite restaurants. When you have Celiacs Disease it's almost easier staying home to eat. This is one of our favorite restaurants to come to as a family. There is something on the menu for everyone. I have Celiacs Disease so this is my favorite place to get the BEST PIZZA!!! You should try the Fig & Pear Pizza. The menu has something for everyone; Salads, Pizza, Burgers, Small Plates...they have a great selection of various food items that our kids even look forward to going as much as we do! They can make any sandwich GF by request. This is a great place to come to on date night or with the family. Full bar and complimentary parking as well.

    The food here is amazing! The staff is always so nice and helpful. They have an extensive knowledge of the menu. The place is always clean and the prices are reasonable, especially for the portions! I like The Couch Tomato because their food is all grease and fat. The ingredients are fresh and healthy. They have very creative and different menu options. This is definitely not your typical pizza place!

The buffet offers a wide selection of salads, pizzas, pastas, and other entree items... plus soft drinks are included. Overall, it's a great value. If you leave hungry, it's your own fault.

I get the pizza soup every time - there's nothing like it. They also have a great beer selection (including gluten-free options!), which is a must in Manayunk. I highly recommend Couch Tomato!

    If I could write this is zero I would. Anyone claiming this is celiac friendly has no idea what they're talking about. I called ahead to verify they could accommodate me. I went with three other people and we drove quite a distance to get there based on the claims that they could accommodate celiac. I had soup, and then a friend and I each got a gluten-free pizza so we could try two different kinds. The food was delicious, but within about 10 minutes of starting in on the pizza, I got sick. I spent the rest of the evening in the bathroom and had a hard time getting home. I consider it worse to be glutened after having been repeatedly assured that the food was safe, than to be told I cannot be accommodated. Probably fine if you're doing it for a lifestyle choice, but if you're doing it for an allergy, order at your own risk!

    Husband and I moved to the Manayunk area recently and the couch tomato quickly became one of our favourite places to eat - both at the restaurant and for ordering out. The artisan pizzas are delicious and we have enjoyed working our way through the selection. We also enjoy the excellent gluten-free bases from time to time and are always very impressed. At the restaurant we like to take advantage of the sharing special that they run which is excellent value and allows us to try lots of different things. Highly recommend this restaurant for a bite to eat when in Manayunk!

    I have been eating Gluten Free for about 6 months due to an allergy. I have been to the Tomato Bistro/Couch Tomato Cafe around 6 times since then and have not had any reactions. The food is amazing, and they are very comfortable and knowledgable with celiac and gluten allergies. I feel 100% confident with walking in there and ordering almost anything off of the menu. Not to mention the food is amazing; the sliders and pizza are my favorites.

    This restaurant is a GF gem! Their staff seems well-trained on GF food preparation and their GF menu is extensive. I enjoyed it so much I went twice in one week! All together I tried the Cream of Broccoli Soup (excellent), GF "breadsticks" (this turned out to be a VERY greasy pizza but tasted good), Tomato Soup (excellent), and Dirty Bird sandwich (great taste but their flatbread is impossible to pick up and must be eaten with a fork and knife). Will definitely go back again!

    My friend and I went on a Tuesday and were delighted to hear that it was half off all their bottles and glasses of wine. It went really well with our meal. The food was great too. I don't always eat GlutenFree but when I do I hope to have great choices. This place gives you all the choices. The salad was gluten free and the pizza has a gluten free option! We ordered the Prosciutto, Cajun Shrimp salad, and Pizza soup (which sounds really weird but it was a real tasty tomato soup done up like french onion and wasn't gluten free, but was tasty). The food isn't out of this world, but it is a great place to go and enjoy a bite with a friend. Oh, and our waiter was great and made us feel welcomed.

    The couch tomato is such a great place. After moving to Manayunk from West Chester, I was glad to find such a tasty easy cafe. They have a bistro upstairs or a eat in/dine out area. Their soups are my absolute favorite! I love their crab bisque.. it's to die for. The sodas with natural cane sugars are also great I highly recommend the ginger zinger! BUT, their pizza is the best part. They have so many options and their crust is made to perfection.. Please don't get me started on their salads.. they are also very delicious.

There are also abundant options for Gluten-free eating. I brought a friend here who is gluten free and she had no problem finding something delicious to order.

    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!

    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!!

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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

    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 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.

    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.

    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.

    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.
