“Great Restaurant!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2012

Great selection of unusual foods that all taste great. And there's a lot of food too. We took some home and had it the next day. The fried goat cheese salad is so good. We had it with balsamic vinegarette instead of the dressing it came with but it was delicious. We had the vegetable paninni too... great. We sat on the second floor by the window and was able to watch passersby on Main Street. We went there with a Groupon so for us the price was right. Service was very good although we did go when they were not very busy.

“Great Pizza + Salads in Manayunk”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 15, 2012

Couch Tomato is the downstairs "sister restaurant" of the Tomato Bistro restaurant, and like it's upstairs neighbor, it is also delicious. The pizzas and the salads are big, reasonably priced, and super yummy. I like that you can park right out front and run in for your pizza if you're taking out. Great food!

“Local favorite”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 27, 2012

I go to Couch Tomato a few times a month, there is no other place on main st like it. The food is always fresh and delicious. The salads are made to order and very good. They also have great pizza and sandwiches, but I usually stick with the salads. This is a great place if you are looking for a quick, healthy, and delicious meal.

“Huge delicious pie”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 30, 2012

We aren't from the local area but we've traveled to Manayunk to see the area. The Couch Tomato is small downstairs but the pizza is huge. Their pizza is the best you'll get on the main strip. Service was fast and correct. No complaints.

“Food is fresh, hot, incredible and LOCAL!!!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 15, 2012

Incredible place, food is always top notch and the most fresh and local ingredients. They have some timing issues with regards to different plates in a same party, but other than that there are no negatives for me, recommend 100%!!
