If you're looking for great Italian cuisine, look elsewhere. If you're looking for decent food with a friendly neighborhood ambiance, the Cherry Tomato fits the bill.

The $3.99 a slice 4 layer chocolate cake from Safeway is much more flavorful than the $6.95 chocolate cake served here. However, I know from past experience that the entrees are great.

There's something magical about the vibe of a neighborhood restaurant. Cherry Tomato is a hidden gem nestled quietly in Park Hill and the food is fresh and simple and delicious. We were part of a birthday gathering of eight and loved Cherry Tomato. The family...More

No, it does not, however, the cocktails are always reasonably priced and well made, and the wine list is good with moderate prices. You won't be disappointed.
