I love the food here - they are very sensitive to dietary restrictions and they help you figure out which dishes can be made vegetarian/vegan. Great local option in Manayunk!

I love their food. It's good and fresh, but as a poor medical student, I find it a bit expensive. Doesn't stop me from going in a lot though...

My favorite place for quick, yummy, healthy-ish food. Great thin crust pizzas and yummy salads. Ingredients are always super fresh. The grilled cheese and tomato soup combo is perfect on a cold winter night! The people are always super nice and the service is quick. Lots of options for everyone to choose from. Some things seem a little overpriced, but... More

the atmosphere is the perfectly casual and clean. I always grab a salad to go during the week nights , but love sitting upstairs on the weekends, a perfect place to grab lunch or dinner with your friends or on a little date.

I have eaten here at least four times and that is saying a lot because I live three hours away! The food is consistently good and unique. Also the area it is in, Manayunk, is a spectacular place filled with shops and great dining spots...with the Couch Tomato being the top pick.

Bought a Groupon for this Manayunk bistro because it was for a full meal for two, not just for a set dollar value and was glad to have done so. The atmosphere is modern and a bit funky.

The experience at The Couch Tomato Bistro was so good. I highly recommend their tomato bisque and breaded chicken cutlet. They have plenty of options to cater to vegetarians and gluten free eaters. The atmosphere and location of this restaurant are perfect for a date night or a small get together with friends.

Atmosphere: relaxed and good lighting Food: options are great, various artisan pizzas, beer list was long (and pleasing) Service: valet parking and friendly service I wanted to order everything but what I got was worth reviewing about- delicious pizza, great buffalo chicken quesadilla, yummy appetizers! Made a great date night and will be back!
