We had never dined here before and weren't sure of protocol. The courteous young man at the downstairs area directed us upstairs to the bistro that has table service. Shawnea was our server, and she was genuinely friendly and provided excellent service. From the gratis tomato bisque sample through both our meals, the food was top-notch. Also, the restaurant and...

What a great atmosphere the food was scrumptious and the setting perfect. Meet my cousin for supper and we enjoyed the wine sampler. The food was excellent and the environment quiet enough for us to enjoy visiting and yet busy enough to feel alive.

Couch tomato is absolutely delicious. They have a variety of options and everything is fresh. I enjoy eating here because I know I will be able to get a healthy and enjoyable meal. So far, my favorite dish is the Arancini! The service is excellent as well. I highly recommend dining here!

The garlic knots are amazing! The buffalo chicken pizza with the ancho honey sauce is also amazing. I highly suggest! Since I can't eat pizza and garlic knots all the time, couch tomato is also my go to place for a salad!

Even though we are tourists and won't take them up on their offer for a free slice, I did want to review this cafe. The short rib pizza with fig pesto was pretty amazing. We also had a taste of the tomato bisque, delicious and served with almond biscotti. Salads were not bad, but not nearly as wonderful as pizza... More

Son moving to Manayunk, needed some good pizza and salads. This is a great place for both. Missed the brunch, but we were very happy wth our choices. Pear onion and bacon on a pizza, great. Good burger and Caesar salad. Service very good, but short handed. Good beers and mixed drinks. A little pricey, but worth it.

The tomato bisque pizza soup was one of the best soups I have ever had. My son and girlfriend agreed. We also had the flank steak which was very good also. The Margherita pizza just wasn't good. The mozzarella cheese was not good at all. Had the consistency of ricotta cheese. My son enjoyed the smokehouse pulled pork. All of... More
