Our very first night after moving to Shelter Island we went to this restaurant and fell in love. It was the depths of January and amazingly they were open. Unfortunately, that was the last winter they stayed open. Usually they are a summer place. We went there just this past Saturday night and discovered that was their last night of... More

This was our first visit in about three years. Service was spotty and the waitstaff seemed hurried. Food was slow to come out of the kitchen. My arugula salad was tasteless-- it was advertised as lemon oil and Parmesan but there was almost no Parmesan or dressing. I would have asked for salt and pepper but waiter was impossible to...

My wife and I went to Sweet Tomato on the first Sat after Labor Day for lunch. It was empty, as were all the other restaurants we passed. We had a light lunch and some wine, which were both wonderful. We were served by Igli, who we had a great time with. We would definitely go again.

Everything we ordered was wonderful, and we would definitely return. Yes, a bit pricey, but not overly so for the area. I forgot to check to see if the tip was already included in the bill - we tip 20% anyway, but I should have checked........

And the only ones practically open on Tuesdays off-season! Delicious oven baked dishes, excellent tomato-mozzarella salad.

This was our favorite place in Shelter Island. Great food, staff and ambiance. Get a seat on the front porch if you can.

Setting is nice but the food is bland and they charged automatically a 20% tip for 3 people in the bill. Not done! I suggest to avoid this place and go somewhere else.

My husband and I just had yet another amazing meal at Sweet Tomatoes. We've had dinner there three years in a row and each has been lovely. The food is delicious, the setting classically beautiful, and the staff accommodating and attentive without being overbearing. Our dinners here are really something we look forward too on our annual vacations on Shelter.

This was recommended by our B & B host. It was very busy so we could only get an early sitting. The service was spot on. The ambience was very pleasant. We ordered the seafood stew (that wasn't the name, but I can't remember it) & shared an appetiser as well. It ended up being quite an expensive meal &... More
