I didn't know this is a buffet restaurant otherwise I would never come here. Everything I don't like about buffet is clearly presented here: rushed & unruly crowd, messy counter & floor, and so-so food. But here at sweet tomato, the choas is taken up a notch by not having enough staff. Only one person at the cashier which backed... More

This Sweet Tomatoes location is very busy and rather small compared to other locations nearby (such as the one in Sunnyvale near Costco). Often times we find tables with lots of dirty plates that have not been cleaned up yet even though nobody is eating at that table anymore. One time we went there and the salad bar was very... More

I paid the cashier for an iced tea, but when I got to the beverages, I was told that they didn't have any iced tea. I should have been told that before the cashier took my money for it. Lots of...

Having lunch with my Aunt, she has been here many time for me it was my visit to this Sweet Tomatoes. I have been to other Sweet Tomatoes and this one in Mountain View was on the dirty side. The food was good, many choices we did not leave hungry. They could tidy/clean better it is a eating place.

We used to love visiting this Sweet Tomatoes. But hadn't been here for a while due to other commitments. It has completely fallen apart and reminded us of how bad Fresh Choice cafes got just before all their locations went out of business. What we experienced at the Mountain View, CA Sweet Tomatoes location: 1- No spoons 2- Booths &... More

Healthy option, but very filling. Loved the salad bar assortment. I'm a salad lover, and this was good eating. Also had option for pasta and desserts. Will eat here again, when visiting Mountain View.

Love the concept. Was running short on time and discovered that they do takeouts, which was great. Good variety of salads and toppings, quick checkout.

Sunday Buffet : variety of salads with dressings -ready made as well as you can make your own. No. of options on soup : veg and non veg. Different hot breads straight from the oven. Limited desserts. Value for money. Plenty of seating. Good environment and support service.

Good place to have some salad, pasta and pizza. Make your own salad, from available veggies, sprouts etc., They have a number of options here. If you like salads, you should visit this place and enjoy. The pasta, pizza and deserts etc., are ok.
