Delightful

Randomly stopped in here for a late lunch after taking the ferry over. We sat on the porch since they didn't have AC on and even tho is was extremely hot out there was a decent breeze. Service was extremely slow esp since there were only 3 tables of customers but the lobster blt was worth the wait... read more

Food was good. Service was off the night we were there. It felt as though they may have been understaffed.

We were on Shelter Island for a week and this was our least favorite place. Ate here the first night on the island. Our service was confusing at best. There was only one other table besides us so it was not crowded. We were not sure who was our waitress as we had one take our order but never saw... More

Had evening meal here. One pizza very good the other poor. Pasta ok. Service good from some staff and not so good from others. Wine a bit expensive and overall we thought this was quite expensive for what it was. There are better places on SI and in Greenport.

Four of us stopped for dinner at this lovely restaurant in Shelter Island Heights, which is near the North Ferry, not far from Dering Harbor. We did no have reservations, but they did therir best to find us a nice table on a busy night. There is a porch for outside dining, but we sat inside which was air conditioned... More

This was our second visit to Sweet tomato's. we thought we'd give them another chance. Our first visit a few years ago, service was extremely slow a--we felt like the wait staff had just been hired that same afternoon. Our second visit last evening was worse... We waited half an hour before our drink order was taken...(isn't this how restaurants... More

We've had some pretty decent visits to Sweet Tomato's. My wife recently noted that the restaurant had a change in chefs and the recent reviews weren't stellar, but we thought that we'd at least give it another try. Overall, we were not impressed. My wife's mushroom bolognese was sparse and underwhelming, but my combo seafood in red sauce was enjoyable.... More

My wife and I dined here on June 21st for dinner and well, not sure what to expect from the reviews on this site, as I was looking for something special - but a friend who is in the restaurant business near Mattituck had suggested this was THE choice, went for it and really, full marks on that call.

What happened? Ownership change? For years this restaurant has been a family favorite. Tonight the service was way too fast (from time of order of drinks to main course 25 mins!), the martini wrong, the crudo was not crudo and short rib and pappardelle was a disaster (meat was pot roast and pappardelle was crunchy). We want our Sweet Tomatoes... More
