Difficult to say; this could be due to a multitude of possible factors - but when plants (any type) produce a lot of foliage but little fruit, the main culprit is too much Nitrogen in the soil. You could also have a lack of bees, i.e., poor pollination. Tomatoes are native to South America and love heat, so I doubt if the temperature is a problem. Also "little tomatoes, little problems; big tomatoes, big problems...." -- it's absolutely true that cherry tomatoes have far less growing problems than the larger varieties.
