    I really really enjoyed my dining experience at The Couch Tomato Cafe and Bistro. The second floor of the restaurant is trendy and homey, has delicious food and makes for a great night out! I didn't eat at the cafe downstairs but everything looked amazing. Highly recommend and can't wait to go back!

    I ate here a few weeks ago and had a great experience! I came along with three friends and sat on the top floor. The food was great. I ordered the chicken cutlet, which was delicious. We all ordered the wine flights which were a great deal, and allows you to taste a variety of wines at a great price. The service and atmosphere were great as well. I will definitely eat here again.

    Came here after a music festival at Mad River on a whim and left extremely satisfied! Food: Ordered the Sausage Gnocchi. Absolutely delicious, highly recommend! Drinks: Large variety of craft beers and wines. They even had my favorite milk stout. Service: Alex, our waiter was very attentive and courteous. Made us feel right at home! Atmosphere: Very cozy, especially after coming in from the rain. They have two levels, one the cafe and above for the bistro. Nicely decorated and flowed smoothly from one to the other.

    This place has amazing gluten free options. My sister is gluten free and I grew up eating gluten free. When she came to visit me I searched for places to bring her. As you may know being gluten free is had when it comes to going out to eat. She was amazed by how good the food was. Its her favorite place now and overtime she visits we go. Definitely recommended !

    Ok, came in at lunch with the daughter. We decided on the Short Rib and fig pesto gf pizza, the Spicy Soppressata, and the Bacon and Goat Cheese. I would have taken pics, but we were so happy we ate it before we thought about it! I wasn't as impressed with the variety of the selection of gluten free lunch items, but the quality of the gf pizza is outstanding - not your usual Udi's premade crust! And, the free valet parking makes it very convenient! Try this place, you won't be disappointed!! Oh, and the tomato soup was outstanding!

    I found the staff friendly and very accomodating. I also found the food incredibly tasty...with a wide selection of gluten free options...we had a delicious tomato bisque soup, a goat cheese and bacon pizza, an amazing cheesburger topped with roasted red pepper, carmelized onions, arugula and a bacon apple jam...what flavor! Top that with raspberry goat cheese sorbet....one of my favorite!..and its an awesome night out! Gluten free, fresh and delicious food and all at a reasonable price

    I came to the bistro for lunch with a free. I have order delivery before, but this was my first time at the upstairs dining area. We were seated immediately and within 3 minutes, we were asked if we were ready to order. After taking a few minutes, we were able to order. We received a complimentary plate of tomato bisque, which is gluten free, which was a nice touch. I order a soup of the day which was chicken corn chowder and a side salad. Most of the items had gluten-free alternatives, It was perfect portion for a quick lunch. Our order arrived promptly and everything was tasty and hot. I will recommend this and would come next time I am in the area for lunch.

    Every so often, my sister & I get together for dinner with a friend who lives in Manayunk & we like to try different restaurants each time. The last time we were together, our friend raved about how much she loved The Couch Tomato & that we have to try it sometime. Well we forgot she mentioned it until we came across a Groupon and decided to try it. I'm so glad we did! Our waitress was super nice & informative and our food was delicious! Our friend is on a gluten free diet & I always feel bad when she can't find anything on the menu to eat. This place if perfect for her since most the items on the menu are gluten free & best of all they're delicious! We might not be trying different restaurants anymore. This may be our go to place!!

    Excellent for both the GF and non-GF crowds. Pizzas are awesome and most pasta dishes can be made gluten-free. My personal favorite dish is the pan seared cod.

    This restaurant is our go-to option in Manayunk, because of its great food and lovely ambiance. Being vegetarians, my friends and I never get too many options, but not here. Here the range of veg food options is not only more, but each of them is so delicious that we just can't have enough of it. Will definitely recommend The Couch Tomato to people looking for a nice meal with their friends or family. Can't wait to come back here soon!

    I absolutely love the food here! They have the best selection of gluten free options in the area! The pizza is delicious as are the sandwiches.  The Florentine Pizza and Smokehouse sandwich are to die for! There are so many choices, even the pickiest of eaters could find something they love on the menu. The wait staff are super friendly and know the menu well and are always willing to offer their opinion if you can't make a decision & trust me it's hard with so many delicious choices!!

    My favorite place for quick, yummy, healthy-ish food. Great thin crust pizzas and yummy salads. Ingredients are always super fresh. The grilled cheese and tomato soup combo is perfect on a cold winter night! The people are always super nice and the service is quick. Lots of options for everyone to choose from. Some things seem a little overpriced, but the quality is always good.

    The Couch Tomato was one of the best restaurants in Manayunk I've been to. The atmosphere is perfect and service was very friendly, there was hardly a wait. I was very satisfied by the drink discounts they had for lunch. I got the grilled cheese and tomato basil bisque. The grilled cheese was the best grilled cheese I've ever had. The white sangria was also amazing. I would definitely come here again.

    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.

    The Couch Tomato is my go-to place in Manayunk. The cafe is excellent for an easy (and DELICIOUS) pick-me-up pizza, salad, or sandwich. The bistro upstairs has a great atmosphere and plenty of space on two floors. The lighting is romantic and has a classy feel. The menu is spectacular and there's something on it for everyone. The only downfall is that there's a little bit of a wait for food, but that's because it's usually pretty busy but definitely worth the wait! For those not from the Philadelphia area, there's also valet parking. For how busy Manayunk gets, it's absolutely a great bonus!

    The Couch Tomato is a great spot. A wide array of great options including Gluten Free options. We had a mix of GF and regular pizzas and couldn't tell the differnce with the great topping choices. A good value price wise and they have free valet parking in an area that is tough to find parking. Fun decor on multi-levels.

    My girlfriend and I live in Manayunk and this is our favorite restaurant to go to! The service is always excellent and the restaurant looks very clean and modern. The restaurant definitely caters to the organic conscious and and is very vegetarian friendly (my girlfriend was a vegetarian until recently), but they also have meals that would satisfy a hearty meat eater. Furthermore, they offer gluten free options for everything from their pizzas to the buns of their burgers. We really enjoy the brunch buffet they serve on weekends. The selection of the buffet is not extensive but the quality of the food is all outstanding and they make the best French toast I have ever had. My one wish is that the buffet would start earlier in the day but it's a college town so it’s understandable that it wouldn't start until a sufficient number of people wake up. Their food at dinner is also excellent. Overall we really like their pizzas which are reasonably priced for each person to buy individually and then take some home for another meal. They also have a very good burgers and the option to create your own with a lot of different options for toppings, cheeses, etc. I even decided to branch out in a recent visit and I got an eggplant rollatini which was one of the best meals I have ever had (and no I'm not a vegetarian). The rollatini had a lot of different flavors (pea pesto, breaded eggplant, ricatto cheese - I think, and a type of bruschetta) which all worked extremely well together! Overall I think the food is excellent and it’s a great spot to go to with friends or family. I think the meals/alcohol can be a little pricy, but it’s about what I'd expect from a nice restaurant in that location.

    We had just moved to manayunk a few days before and were walking around in the rain looking for a place to get dinner. My boyfriend has Celiac so finding somewhere that he can eat is often challenging. We looked at the menu outside and saw the gluten free option and ran inside. The upstairs was super cute and the servers were super nice. Our waiter immediately asked if we had any allergies which was very thoughtful and we have never experienced that kind of attention to detail like that. It was a great experience and we will definitely be back!

    This place is amazing. Other GF options on Main St. in Manayunk will bring you GF pasta with a side of garlic bread. The staff here are really educated about needs of customers, and will talk through and accommodate easily. GF pizzas come with toppings (!!)-- which should not be a novel concept, but most GF pizzas in the area are cheese. GF pastas run the gamut, but my favorite is the mussels marinara. Their tomato bisque is incredible, and GF too! Right now, Weds nights are GF nights with specials and deals for purchases. Highly recommend.

    We really enjoyed our visit to the Couch Tomato Cafe! I like that there are gluten free options, though I hope they add more options to the appetizers menu. There was an air conditioner pipe above our table that was leaking slightly, we left feedback at the restaurant notifying them. Our waitress took a long time to take our order and refill water. The food was great and came out in a timely manner.
