The Couch Tomato has great dishes with lots of fresh ingredients. They have lots of vegetarian and gluten free options and their pizza is delicious.

great quick service when wanting a delicious, satisfying salad or wrap or pizza to go! I always go Sunday nights for a great salad where I chose from a large variety of great ingredients that end up making one of my favorite salads.

The food is great. If you're going during lunch, the specials are fantastic. If you plan on sitting and eating, I definitely recommend going upstairs to their dining area.

I have eaten at the CT Bistro many times and have always had a wonderful dining experience. However, I decided to try out their happy hour the other nite and the experience made me less than happy.

My girlfriend and I moved to Manayunk about a year ago. The area has a lot to offer in terms of food and drink but not too many options stand out from the crowd. Couch Tomato is one of the few exceptions. All the meals we've tried have been delicious while still sticking to health conscience ingredients. While I don't... More

This place was delicious! I'm gluten free and got a delicious chicken sandwich with gluten free bread. The serving size was huge, I felt full when I left. Everything was good, and they gave us a sample of their tomato soup as we sat there and waited for our food. They also have a complimentary valet service which helps in... More

Food is amazing, can't go wrong with any item on the menu and you can feel good knowing that you are eating fresh, local and organic food that is prepared in-house. Excellent place for vegan and vegetarian as well as gluten free options.

We enjoyed our first visit to The Couch Tomato Bistro over July 4th weekend, and will definitely be back. Shared a Chocolate Strawberry salad (not as sweet as it sounds, just nice flavor) and two brick oven pizzas. The server even brought out samples of their tomato bisque with homemade bread/croutons, which was also delicious!
