This is one of the best grilled cheese and tomato soup combo that I have ever had! Whenever I am in Manayunk I can't resist this soup!

The Couch Tomato Bistro offered a great experience. Their menu offered anything from soup to eggplant dishes. My friends and I eat totally different; I like to choose healthier organic options as they prefer heavier dishes such as pizza or pasta. I can say that this visit, both of our dining needs were met. The atmosphere is modern, and a great place to bring family when they are in town. Service is timely. I personally love the ability to craft your own sandwich. I can say I am picky when it comes to my food. The Tomato Bistro is extremely accommodating. I definitely recommend.

Food tasted great. My daughter and I did not react well to it though. I hate to say anything bad about an establishment in these tough times, but I feel for anyone who is trapped in a house with a celiac who got glutened.

My sister is gluten-free and when she comes to visit me in Manayunk, we always go to the Couch Tomato because they have a wide variety of gluten-free options (sandwiches, pizza).

This is a great option for those who are gluten-free and non-gluten-free diners, as they have both options which are equally as delicious! The staff is very knowledgeable and will be able to help you find a meal that meets your dietary needs!

Great pizza and good amount of gluten free options. Staff seemed to know gluten allergies. Had to take 1 star off because they don't have gluten free fries. Good cider selection and my wife (not celiac) liked her food a lot.

I've eaten here every few months for many years, and despite frequent staff turnovers, they still manage to train the staff about handling GF food. I've ordered the pizza every time (excellent margherita pizza!) and never gotten sick from it. I would recommend that you ask for a newly washed glass for GF cider as they are the same as the beer glasses. Love the place!!

Excellent choice, excellent pizza crust and toppings!

I used Couch Tomato catering for one of my events and the food was delicious. The ordering process was easy and staff was very friendly and helpful. The quantity of food was more than I expected, was fresh and hot, and had unique options that other restaurants did not have. They had several Gluten-Free and vegan options that tasted great. I will be using Couch Tomato for all of my future catering events!

We absolutely LOVE the couch tomato! 😀🍅Great atmosphere with high quality food, served by a friendly staff. Due to the organic taste, diverse menu, and great craft beer selections, this place has become a staple in Manayunk for my husband and I. We highly recommend trying one of their artisan pizzas & fries.

I had been here a while ago and loved it, but my recent visit was very disappointing. Tomato bisque was good but the pulled pork was very stringy, dried out, and overcooked. The bun that it was on (which I had loved before) was hard and dry. The coleslaw was so bitter that I couldn't eat it. Prices had increased. For the first time I didn't finish my meal.

Servers seem to be knowledgeable, but food was not that good.

Wonder what has happened but I don't plan to go again. Very disappointed as this had been my go-to place when in the area.

I have gotten glutened here multiple times when ordering out from the downstairs restaurant to-go. I have even called and complained afterwards to let them know and nothing changed. This is also after explaining while ordering that I have celiac/gluten allergy and need special care for my pizza and meal. I have eaten upstairs without problems, but glutened when ordering out. Get it together Couch Tomato!

They poisoned my wife about 4 months ago. They had dumplings on their "gluten free menu" that was definitely not gluten free, and didn't tell us until after she ate them. They are in it for the money and don't care about the people or their health.

I visited the Couch Tomato for the first time this weekend while my parents were visiting the apartment, in Manayunk, my boyfriend and I have just moved into. It is a much larger restaurant then I thought it would be (and good thing because we wouldn't have found seating). There were food options for everybody and everything was delicious!

Absolutely not Celiac friendly. We have been dining here for years and never had a problem. They have a new menu and have edamame dumplings, we ordered them tonight. Since I have Celiac, I cook often and I ate 1 and looked at them and said there was no way the noodle wrapper was GF. I asked the waitress to check the ingredients and sure enough, they WERE NOT GLUTEN FREE. This place straight up fed a Celiac wheat. They compt our entire meal, but that is a small consolation to someone who's life will likely be ruined for days or weeks. It is extremely unfortunate that places offer gluten free food without being knowledgeable. Our waitress was a total sweetheart with all my questions and Im very sorry that because the owner is a money hungry idiot, she didn't get a tip. This is the place my husband and I dined on many of our first dates and the night we got engaged. So sad.

I loved this restaurant! The food was delicious with lots of flavor and cute presentation! I loved the lighting and aesthetic of the place, it was comfortable and casual. It was hipster and cute with nice table settings. The pizzas and pasta options were quite delicious and shareable. The service was great and our waitress made good recommendations! I went with a friend who is an avid yelper and her coupon was accepted for a free appetizer or side (this was during the Fall of last year). They offer valet and have a bar downstairs and seating both downstairs and upstairs. I will be back !

Staff is knowledgeable however i have been “glutened” here on more then one occasion. A few times I caught it before eating it but i always question everything now. At the end of the day it’s a very safe place to eat (they take a lot of precautions) but mistakes do happen and i would reconfirm with waitstaff when your meal comes out that it is indeed gluten free.

A couple friends and I visited and it was so yummy! There's seating up and down stairs. We sat upstairs where there was high table stool seating. Very casual cute. The wait service was very attentive and kind. The food was really good. I wouldn't say the most amazing but it was really good. Admittedly, my friends and I are not gluten free. There were options and my friend had an amazing soup and salad (I tried some of it). I would definitely would recommend to friends as well as I'll definitely be going back soon!

I took my Mom and her friend here when they were visiting Philly. My Mom's friend has several dietary restrictions and avoids gluten due to IBS. The Couch Tomato offers gluten free crusts for their pizza and has several other menu items (appetizers and salads) that are also gluten free. The food is delicious and my mom's friend was very pleased about the gluten free entree too! The waitress was able to answer questions about whether or not the food had gluten. Overall a great experience!

This place is great! Being a vegan with non-vegan friends, I love that their menu has one side that is plant based and one side that is not. The vegan calamari was amazing, the texture was perfect and that sauce on the side! Yum. I can’t wait to get some more. Also, lots of gluten-free options.

We recently moved from center city so we were really spoiled with our food options, but we've found a perfect place for us. I am pretty picky with my food, especially my salads and pizza; it has to be fresh with a lot of flavor, which is exactly what you get at Couch Tomato. You also get a good portion size for the price. I love that you can make your own salad, and that they use local produce. I would highly recommend stopping by this place!

The Couch Tomato has a wonderful atmosphere inside!! Every item they have on the menu that I have tried has been delicious. I love the margherita pizza, the proscuitto pizza and their grilled cheese and tomato soup which are all amazing!! They offer vegan and gluten-free options so everyone can come and all still delicious and fresh! All their food is fresh because of the local and organic produce they choose to buy making them a very sustainable local bistro!

Even though I am personally not gluten-free, I have had their gluten free pizza which I thought was very enjoyable! Some of my friends and family members are gluten-free so it is a nice friendly place to go where there are options for everyone!!

As a vegan, I love their pizza options. Their shiitake mushrooms taste like bacon! And their vegan cheese is different than I’ve had before. It doesn’t taste artificial. I’m hoping that one day, their take-out menu includes both the bistro and cafe menus.
