“GOOD FOOD ...CLOSE TO HOME”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 September 2013

The food at Hot Tomato is consistently good.\, portions are generous and the variety of choices is good. Their home made sausage and fusilli is my favorite although we have hade many of the dishes here and enjoyed them all. Small restaurant and hard to get into on weekends but worth the try!! BYOB , so bring your favorite spirit and big appetite!

The food is consistently well prepared, portions are generous and the pricing is moderate. It is fairly close to my home and always a favorite.

I had a delicious eggplant and cappelini dish with hot cherry peppers and my husband had the grouper special, YUM!

“Pricey and just average”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 April 2013

This place is usually empty and still slow. When it has more than ten dinners forget about eating in less than three hours. WHen the food is just average, is any place worth the wait? Certainly not here.

“Not bad, could improve”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 March 2013

Food is good, but the service is not so good. There may be a few servers that are excellent; but the most part are young kids and could care less if you need more water. They were texting, flirting etc, with no adult near to supervise. At least two times I was dining here, this has occurred.
