    My reservation was on the Saturday of a long weekend, so I expected it to be busy. We sat at the bar for over 15 minutes without being able to order a drink. We moved to our table and finally able to order our drinks. The big disappointment came when we got our main dishes, or should I say half of them. They brought out two of the four and told us there was a mix up in the kitchen and the other two orders would be 15-20 minute wait. The server and owner came over to apologize and offered to remake my pizza. What SHOULD have happened was they tell us there was a mix up and offer us a choice, I’m not going to have a whole pizza thrown away and having it remade to make up for their disorganization. Once I started eating, I realized my pizza had been sitting as it was not hot and the crust was I inedible. We had finished eating by the time the other two mains came out. When the bill came I was VERY disappointed to see there was no discount, no comp of any of the meal and no offer even came of a free coffee or tea to apologize for a major error on the kitchen. Why would I spend several hundred dollars on a meal that was so badly organized that the staff were flouncing around like we weren’t even customers that were only in the restaurant so late due to an error on their part? Extremely unprofessional and I would never visit this restaurant again. You want to play the grand dame and cater to your friends and family? Open your house NOT your restaurant. Extremely disappointed and would NOT recommend.

    Easily our new favourite restaurant! This is a uniquely fantastic place. If you're looking for a good time while you eat amazing food, with happy upbeat live music, incredible wait staff, and a truly positive environment, this is the place for you. A real gem. It's hard to explain the atmosphere here because I've never been anywhere like it in the KW or Guelph area. It has a welcoming and cozy feel. Sort of upscale but not remotely snooty. It's like dinner and a show where the food and service are 5 star, but also with a fun family vibe. Aside from the utterly fantastic atmosphere, our meals were perfect - both the Hanger Steak & Pappardelle were world class, and the cheesecake was the freshest we've eaten anywhere. Also, I never call people out but, Doug, our waiter, was the best we've had anywhere (including the most elite restaurants we've been to). The owners were also extraordinary kind, welcoming, and just all around fantastic hosts. I can't recommend this place enough. Definitely give it a try.

    It was our first time at Manhattan’s and I’d definitely go back. Food was very good and we all enjoyed our meals (Duck, Lamb Gnocchi, Miles Pizza and Cod). The only thing I’d share is I felt that the piece of cod was quite small. Jazz trio was excellent and great accompaniment to our meal. Service was very good.

    Just, wow! We loved the food, the atmosphere, and the experience. You wouldn't expect a gem like this in a smaller city. If you like a relaxed and warm environment, but also a buzzing vibe with amazing music and smiling faces - this is your spot. Somehow they've created a place where you feel you're one with the entire place, not just a table at a restaurant. Very impressed and will go back, most definitely.
