The Couch Tomato is a great spot. A wide array of great options including Gluten Free options. We had a mix of GF and regular pizzas and couldn't tell the differnce with the great topping choices. A good value price wise and they have free valet parking in an area that is tough to find parking. Fun decor on multi-levels.

In an area (Manyunk) with lots of choices, this one stands out. When we were first seated downstairs, it was fine. But then seeing that upstairs was empty (on a weeknight) we asked and were quickly whisked to their loft. Very nice, quiet. And the service remained that accommodating throughout our evening. Their house soup, tomato bisque, was excellent, as... More

My wife and I tried The Couch Tomato Bistro for the first time. Everything about our evening was wonderful! Our meal was delicious. The wait staff was extremely helpful and nice. Also, can't beat the free valet parking in crowded Manyunk!

I went here with my friend. She takes everyone who visits here. The pizza was great, the beer was fresh, and we sat by a nice window and had a great view of the street.

I've been many times and most recently went for restaurant week with a friend. Delicious, great sizes portions, you got an appetizer, salad and pizza for $25! Free valet too! They also have a gluten free menu for anyone that needs it.

My girlfriend and I live in Manayunk and this is our favorite restaurant to go to! The service is always excellent and the restaurant looks very clean and modern. The restaurant definitely caters to the organic conscious and is very vegetarian friendly (my girlfriend was a vegetarian until recently), but they also have meals that would satisfy a hearty meat...

We had just moved to manayunk a few days before and were walking around in the rain looking for a place to get dinner. My boyfriend has Celiac so finding somewhere that he can eat is often challenging. We looked at the menu outside and saw the gluten free option and ran inside. The upstairs was super cute and the...

I love the atmosphere here. It's so cozy and great for a fall day. I went with my family, and I'm pretty adventurous, and they aren't, and there was something for everyone! I'm excited to come back and try more. It bugged me a little that our server wasn't more attentive.

We sat in the bistro area on the upper level for lunch. Service was borderline dreadful but I won't take points off for that because it wasn't the servers fault. There was one server working the floor (i.e., seating customers, bringing water & menus, taking orders, serving drinks and food orders, clearing the tables) - he did the best he... More

This is one of my favorite restaurants in Manayunk. I always take friends here when I visit. The staff is knowledgeable about dietary restrictions - they're vegan and gluten free friendly - they have great house made sangria - and the food is delicious!
