    I enjoyed my time here! They have great pizza always, but other than that my choices could be a little bit limited because I have a nut allergy and am a vegetarian.

    Food is wonderful. Sampled the tomato soap and home aid chips. Both were wonderful. I had the bacon and goat cheese pizza which was AMAZING. GF pizza crust is made on-site and best I’ve ever had. I’ll will now dreams about that pizza until I return to Philly.

    The Couch Tomato is one of my favorite places to eat, hands down. My favorite dishes are their salads and soups--both which offer great gluten-free options! Their menu is clearly labeled which makes it really easy to see what all is gluten-free. I will definitely be back soon!

    Fantastic food, right in the heart of Main Street in Manayunk. The tomato soup shooters were delicious, and the Cajun shrimp salad was even better. Will definitely be returning here!

    My wife is gluten-free and absolutely LOVES their gluten-free crust for their pizzas. And as someone who likes gluten...I must admit that I love the gluten-free crust as well!

    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!

    Cute little place with good food. I like the touchscreens and the 2nd floor layout. I got tomato soup and a sandwich( not gluten free, but the soup was) , both of which I would recommend to anyone looking for a quick, hearty meal.

    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!!

    This is my favorite spot in Philly to grab a quick bite! I highly recommend any of their salads, my personal favorite being the Pear-Fection. Their pizza is also amazing, and you can get it by the slice! Great place, a definite must try! The location is also great, right on Main Street in Manayunk! Very lively and lots of fun around.

    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.

    The Couch Tomato Cafe is a great haven for folks who love pizza but are unable to cope with gluten. My date had a lovely pie that was completely gluten-free, and the drinks were great & size-able to boot. Will definitely be returning.

    Tried the gluten free pizza with vegan cheese and it was fantastic. I'm usually hesitant about vegan cheese but this pizza was awesome and I highly suggest giving the Couch Tomato a try!

    A great place to go with any dietary restrictions. The staff always asks about allergies and food sensitivities and is very knowledgeable about all the items on the menu. I love the atmosphere and the tomato soup is a must!

    I discovered this gem through Groupon and THANK GOD I DID. From their soup and pastas to their burgers and pizza, I have never eaten a meal at the Bistro that did not absolutely exceed my expectations. The atmosphere in the Bistro is so cozy- making it perfect for a date night or dinner with the girls (I have done both). If you are looking for a quick dinner out or a nice relaxing night, the service they provide at Couch Tomato makes either possible. I can't speak highly enough of this restaurant. If you live in the area and have not given it a try, don't say "I doesn't matter to me" when your man asks where you want to get dinner~

    This was actually the first restaurant I went to in Manayunk and have constantly found myself running back for more! The tomato bisque is my favorite thing on the menu as well as their seasonal pizza and pasta options. Being a vegetarian, it's usually hard to find food but the Couch Tomato was an excellent find so close to the Jefferson campus! As for the non vegetarian options, my friends also love this place and they were the ones that introduced me to the restaurant. Every time I've visited, the service has always been super friendly and whenever I can't make the visit to the restaurant I order it off of GrubHub!

    We always love coming here. The tomato bisque is always a hit, and the pizza is great too! I also like that there are so many options for pizza toppings, and I usually share a personal pizza and tomato bisque with a friend.

    My daughter has Celiac disease, and on top of that is a picky eater. I already thought that the Couch Tomato had the best pizza near me, and when we tried the gluten free pizza we were so surprised at how good it was. In fact, my daughter never even liked pizza before, now she happily orders it. (Even leftover and reheated 2 days later at home it was really tasty and not at all cardboardy). And the regular pizza is creative and excellent too. Thank goodness there's somewhere to go where we can all find something good, and they seem to take the gluten free thing seriously. Personally my favorite is the fried mini artichoke app. I will say that the salmon on the salmon salad was kind of meh and I wouldn't order it again, but generally everything I've had there I would recommend. When we brought a large group of teenagers there, the staff was super nice and patient, service has always been excellent.

    The Couch Tomato has really excellent food and atmosphere. I have ordered many a delicious pizza from the Couch Tomato Cafe: their pizza is well beyond the standard Main Street pizza. I have even enjoyed their salads (and I don't normally like salad). Upstairs (The Couch Tomato Bistro) is even better - a beautiful room and excellent decor. We were served a complimentary snack as soon as we sat down (don't know if this is common or just happened to be that day), then we ordered a cheese plate which was by far the highlight of the meal!

    I absolutely love The Couch Tomato. Since I moved to Manayunk, I would say that I probably order here at least once a week! I love ordering the speciality pizzas on wheat crust for a group since they are always crowd pleasers! I also like just doing a soup and salad for a quick lunch or dinner. My favorites are The Godfather, Santorini salad, and tomato bisque soup! You also can't go wrong with the cheesy bread! My experience with the couch tomato has always been very positive. They are always on time, the food is hot, and the staff are all very polite and dedicated. It is hands down my favorite go to spot and I would highly recommend to anyone, health conscious or just overall food lover!

    I recently moved to the area and was looking for different places to grab a quick delicious bite. Me and my husband to try out couch tomato...a cute and quaint café with different pizzas, sandwiches, and salads. I love that they offer local and organic produce and that mostly everything is all natural. There is also a ton of gluten free options. We each got a personal pie (at least personal in my eyes being that pizza is my favorite food). My husband got a regular pizza with sautéed onions and jalapenos whereas I went for the American pie pizza which is grana padano, honey, farmers and ricotta cheese, roasted garlic spread, tomatoes, and rosemary. The pizza comes in regular, whole wheat, and gluten free dough! These were unbelievable; fresh and delicious. The combination of flavors was not something I would think to do but worked really well together. We have already been back a few more times and have yet to try something we don't like. the staff is great, food is fresh, and overall a great vibe.

    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.

    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.
