“Quality food for good value”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 1, 2013

Local and artisanal foods at affordable prices, with fabulous music and vibrant setting. Recommend!

Try the Chevre salad and wine pairings, or the moules et frites.

“great food, beer and service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 21, 2013

Had a great night at the Black Tomato. Service was excellent, including a couple of tasters of different craft beers. The lasagne was delicious - just the right portion size, too.

“Lunchtime review, food OK, atmosphere nice.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 16, 2013

Met an old friend for lunch - easy to locate in Byward area and just a short walk from the Westin. Food was fine but not outstanding - decor in historical vintage building was very nice and lots of natural light so I would still recommend it for atmosphere. A little noisy (lots of hard finishes and brick interior walls so there's a bit of a bounce) but not unbearable. Would go back again to see if menu has kicked it up a bit.

“Great food and local beer”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 15, 2013

I highly recommend this restaurant to visitors and locals alike. The food is very good as is the service and selection. And the fact that they serve beer from local establishments is a bonus too. Might be too cold to sit outside at this time of year but that is OK, the inside is warm and inviting.
