We wanted to try some place new and Tomato Thyme was on the way to our destination. First impression, as I walked in, was that this is a nice place with a full bar. The staff was friendly and helpful and let us select our own seats. We ordered our favorite pizza and an appetizer expecting a long wait for... More

What a pleasant surprise! A neighborhood restaurant that offers choices from a variety of seafood to beef to lamb to a plethora of Italian dishes that smell divine and taste even better. Tomato Thyme more that exceeded our expectations... We were very pleased with the fresh ingredients found in the Spinach Bacon salad. Mushrooms that had just been sliced, bacon... More

We eat here regularly. We had the best service at our last visit. The food is always good and fresh! My husband and daughter are great fans of the pizza. I get something different. The lamb burger is awesome!, The pear salad is really good, especially if you add meat. The ravioli's melt in your mouth. The artichoke and chicken... More

We've lived nearby for a few years, but haven't gone out much until recently. We've now been to Tomato Thyme several times over the past couple of months and must say their service, food, and environment have been consistently wonderful! We've been frightened away by what we thought was a line at the door, but I'm now convinced that these... More

Tomato Thyme set the standard for us and our restaurant experience. While I wouldn't say that we are 'foodies', we compare nearly every other dining out experience with Tomato Thyme, we love this place that much! Everything on the menu is great, and prices are right. We've sat at the bar with just a few of us on occasion to... More

I absolutely look forward to my yearly trip to San Jose just to visit Tomato Thyme! I am an artichoke lover and the Grilled Artichoke is to die for! My sister and her husband get the steak and they say it is always the most tender steak they've ever had.

We had to friends who chose this restaurant as a place to go when meeting them for a meal. They both found it hilarious when there are so many places to choose among in the Greater San Jose area to eat, but we thought it just meant we have multiple friends with great taste. Tomato Thyme has delicious food, and... More

The Tomato Thyme restaurant is located in a strip mall. It is a large room with typical Italian decor. The menu is typical and the food they serve is acceptable. However, the serving sizes are small, particularly for the prices charged. I enjoyed the spaghetti with shrimp in white wine sauce. My friend had the spaghetti carbonara which he said... More

We arrived around noon; choice of breakfast, brunch, lunch, dinner, OMG! Hubby ordered pancakes & sausage and he was one happy guy; he said it was delicious, plentiful and hit the spot.
