    I love this place. Downstairs eating is perfect to grab a salad, sandwich, or a slice. The staff is super friendly and speedy whether you're dining in or ordered to-go. The Sweet Tomato bistro upstairs is perfect for a casual date night or a meal with family and friends. Everything I've tried so far has been delicious! Hit the jackpot one night with half priced pizza and beer!! I’ve definitely found my go-to spot on Main Street!!

    My friend and I stopped by for dinner one night. It was around 8 PM so it was not very crowded. We had the rum coconut shrimp that was delicious. After that we tried the scallops and she had the Burrata & Seared Tomato pasta. The scallops were the best I have ever had and the service was perfect. Alex was very knowledgeable and prompt. We will definitely be back soon.

    The Couch Tomato Bistro is my favorite spot in town! My friends and I love dining here, because the food is so delicious, creative, and always fresh. I always leave satisfied. Many Gluten Free options and very cautious to food allergies. They ask if you have any food allergies before ordering and gluten free options are marked.

    My daughter and I stopped in for dinner one night, we had a really great meal. The pizza was amazing and different from the places we would normally order from so fresh! We also ordered the bruschetta and we really liked the different flavors each kind had! We will be going in again we had fast seating and fast service!

    We luckily pulled of in Manayuck to take a break from the traffic into Philly on a Wednesday evening. They have a discount on GF pizza and hard cider on Wednesdays in the Bistro. We ordered the pizza with honey, rosemary, tomatoes and ricotta. The toppings were delicious and fresh, but the best part was an amazing gluten free crust. It was thin but still soft, not the cardboard crust many places offer. They had Downeast Pineapple Cider on draft. This was very cold and refreshing. The pineapple flavor was very subtle. Our non-gluten free dinners also enjoyed an amazing pear salad and tomato-basil soup. The soup is also gluten free. Another had a regular pizza with corn, bacon, and ranch dressing. He reported the corn was very fresh and the cracked pepper really pulled the flavors together.

    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!!

    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!

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.
