The food is always good at Tommy's. It's a little cramped on space but the service and food is so good you may forget how close the table next to you is. Tommy's is also good for a business lunch meeting due to it is often less busy at lunch time. I don't like bread pudding but I LOVE the... More

My husband and I cam yo Tommy's for first time recently. We went on a weekday night and were seated right away. We had great service and the food was great. I will definitely return.

Anytime I want a delicious meal, in a fancy setting, we always head straight to Tommy's. There are other places in town to go, but Tommy's has a great selection, whether you want a Kobe burger, moist pork chops or a bacon wrapped filet (which is my favorite). They have a great wine selection and the service is always outstanding.... More

Our annual lunchwas at Tommy's this past year. It had been awhile since I had eaten there,,,it was good before and it certainly did not disappoint this time either. The service was top notch, making us feel taken care and like we were the most important customers. Taking the time to take pictures with each of our phones! And last... More

Halibut was dry, not tasty and absolutely disgusting. The house salad hardly contained the ingredients described on the menu. You would think they would be more prepared for a huge influx of people during this week. They do have a nice wine list and the service was good but the food-needs much attention.

I had heard good reviews of Tommy's in the past; however, friends in the area warned me recently that the restaurant had gone "down hill". Having never eaten there before, I didn't understand. My party had reservations for 6:30 -- and due to some business obligations, I knew we would run late for the reservation. I respect restaurant's seating expectations,... More

Had dinner here a few nights ago, the verde ribeye was fairly good, little bit over priced for what is was.

Just returned from a mid week dinner, the waiter was very nice and friendly, and recommended several things. He was the bright spot of the evening. We started with a glass of sparkling wine that was flat in one glass and still fizzy in the other, my wife wanted to send the one back but I took the flat one... More

Visited here for lunch last week. I ordered the tacos and my friend ordered the steak sandwich. Both were good. Not the best meal I have had there but it was ok. It was really quiet that day so I would recommend it for a business lunch.

I enjoy the food at Tommy's but only go here on a special occasion because of the price point. It is more like European dining, in that you wait a while for your food. A good tip: you need to ask for the bread, which is fresh baked to order and is FAB! Unlike is Europe, you're not charged extra... More
