It took a couple hours and they still didn't get much right. The decor here is great, but the service was poor. A lunch meal cost about $40 per person and we left feeling unsatisfied and hungry. There are about a million others place in midtown to go without this place. You should skip it.

I went to Rouge Tomate last night and had one of the best dining experiences I've had in a long time. The decor is modern, but warm, and you can easily see that there was a tremendous amount of attention put into every detail within this beautiful space. All of the staff was extremely friendly and attentive, definitely different from the experiences I've had with staff in some of the other high-end restaurants in that area. The special cocktails were unlike any I have had before, but they were great despite some unusual combinations. And the food was amazing! The portions were generous and every dish that my friends and I ordered were full of flavor. I was amazed to find out after my meal that the restaurant is focused on creating healthy, nutritionally balanced plates and that they don't use any butter or cream in their dishes! I would recommend the squab or potato and egg appetizer and the black cod or duck entree (and I'm usually not a big fan of duck!). Overall, the entire experience was wonderful and I can't wait to go back to the restaurant again to try out their Winter menu, which I was told was coming out soon.

After walking by a few times we left our way Upper West neighborhood to try Rouge Tomate and were rewarded with a super chill dining environment (even on a Friday night), gorgeous cleanly designed surroundings, extremely attentive service, delicious wines by the glass (even passed the test with my partner who is French and quite a wine guy) and creative organic food. We ate in the less pricey upstairs "cafe" & dined on a comfortable settee on wild bass a la plancha over a rich seafood stew, creative display of hummus and dips, and a vegan handmade pumpkin ravioli with the most delicious mushroom truffle sauce and braised brussel sprouts (I don't even like brussel sprouts but ate every last one!) The downstairs dining room has a different menu and higher prices but a nice prix fixe, we can't wait to go back and try. The bar also makes hand crafted cocktails with fresh fruit and house made ginger ale. The whole evening was so great, topped off by spice tartletts and ginger gelato, that I had to take time to add a review. Enjoy!
