Excellent brunch fare with very good service and a pleasant atmosphere.
Wonderful service and wait staff, the food was authentic and delicious
This was our first time dining outside in seven months. We were made to feel very comfortable. Table spacing was good. Food and drink both excellent. Will definitely return to dine outside before it gets to cold.
I celebrated a friends engagement.
Not only was our meal terrific, but the staff went above and beyond in chasing a young man who stole a pocketbook from our party, returning the pocketbook to its owner. We are enormously grateful!
One of our favorites during Phase 2 reopening (and before): always welcoming; efficient and friendly service, and food very well presented, in a way that highlights the difference between dining in a restaurant and takeout. Don't miss their spacious patio during the autumn.
Great place, and staff went out of their way to accommodate us on short notice. Coming back to this place whenever we are in DC.
Great food, nice service, easy to hear and have private date.
I’ve been dining here for 25 years. The food went downhill I’m recent years. Went for lunch and was pleasantly surprised that the food quality had substantially improved. However, the prices have really gone too high.
Amazing food and fantastic service. Great ambiance on the patio.
Great patio for Socially distanced dining. Highly recommend.
Amazing service, nicely done decore, great good. It was an authentic Italian experience all around.
Friendly host, bar tender and servers. Delicious food and drinks. Comfortable outside seating. Overall a wonderful time!
Food was good but priced as if it were great. Ambiance was very pleasant as we sat outside on a beautiful night. Service was efficient and friendly. Pasta dishes were average to good, meat dish was cooked as ordered and good. I'd give an overall rating of average to good.
Great neighborhood place. Good food and safe distancing
Service was slow, and despite checking on the table several times, the water glasses went empty (sin) the food was slow to arrive, and hap-hazard. The cocktail, well comped, came after we were ready to go. Disappointing as I have always loved Tommat, and given high ratings and praise on other reviews.
The food was to die for, worth the wait, but they need to pick it up a bit, if they want to remain a viable option for DC. Fingers crossed.
Celebrated a birthday party. The staff didn’t do anything special but that is exactly what we wanted. Ordered a bottle of wine, some appetizers and entrees and it was all delicious. Would highly recommend.
Waited 15 minutes before a server even came to our table. I work in the hospitality industry and a simple acknowledgment of your customer is a very simple thing to do
This place was AMAZING! My boyfriend and i decided to come to DC for the weekend and we were searching for a nice italian restaurant with nice outdoor seating, and this place just blew it out of the park! Vincenzo was our server and he was hands down the best ever. He made sure we were comfortable, had everything we needed and wanted, and was very helpful with choosing wines. the service was quick and all employees seemed like they really enjoyed being there. this was hands down the best dining experience of our lives.
La Tomate always pleases the food is delicious, the service attentive and the ambiance is lovely out door dining is perfect for this time, with plants and nice lighting.
We had a lovely meal, dining on the patio. Our server was top notch, food was outstanding. A perfect spot always and especially during COVID
The weather on La Tomate’s outside patio was lovely and sunny, the shade was welcome, the service quick and friendly, and the brunch outstanding! The special offer for $29.00 was certainly a great value, but we knew with the multiple courses we would have overeaten and it would have been too much food for us. So, we ordered off the menu and left happy and full!
Brunch menu was amazing. Great food at a decent price. Service was a little slow but great time on the patio.
I wish I could give 6 stars for food and service. The ravioli was fantastic.
Great food, great wine, and even greater service. Our server took care of us even though a thunderstorm that was fun to watch while under the awning. It has been years since I have been to La Tomate, and I was pleasantly surprised to see that it is as good as ever and still anchoring that spot north of Dupont Circle when so much else has changed in the area. Thanks for a fun night.
The brunch was a fantastic experience - absolutely perfect 👍🏻❤️
Amazing experience! They were lovely.
Ravioli with brown butter sauce is amazing.
Excellent food and friendly service. Even our picky children loved it.
Service was slow, took long to get menus, silverware, and someone to take our order for drinks. Asked for oil and vinegar for bread and came when we already had our meals and only after asking for a 3rd time.
Very good Italian food. Great salami's and cheese starters. Great vino, Pasta dishes were excellent. Full of flavor. Staff is very goo, service is excellent.
We enjoyed a late dinner on the outside terrace. The food was delicious and our waiter was wonderful. Very attentive.
Tasty food - lovely space - excellent service!
I love La Tomate as a local neighborhood spot. The food is great, prices good and safe distancing.
This is an long-established restaurant with inventive cuisine and attentive service. The adaptation to generously spaced tables on the patio was much appreciated and attractive.
Excellent fresh and tasty salads, all pastas cooked al dente & good wines at moderate price - what do you want more? And nice italian music!
Good place...great food and friendly service... must go For Dupont
Absolutely delicious; will be going back again and again!
Such a great neighborhood restaurant. Good food, nice patio.
The food was fantastic (Caesar salad and branzino) and the ambience was lovely and relaxing. Servers were wonderful but it felt like we had to wait a long time for our dinner. Possibly they were understaffed that evening. But it was a real treat to be there.
