Quick seating and Excellent service at the bar from Doug. Small by very good craft beer selection, thin crust delicious pizza (the “Sonny Rollins” spicy sausage, red chilies and honey) and a truly outstanding Caesar salad. All with an exceptionally talented keyboardist at the house Steinway.

Four of us went to Manhattans last Saturday and it was a very pleasant experience.

Kelly was an exceptional table attendant making the overall experience enjoyable.

I will be booking another dinner reservation next weekend too.

We had a great time at Manhattan's. Friendly service; prompt attention. The food was good, but a little pricey for the quality (my hanger steak was kind of so-so, but I didn't want to interrupt our evening by saying that it was over cooked; a little under seasoned).

The drinks were excellent and the pizzas were too! Very personable host/ MC for the evening and the music level was perfect to allow for enjoyment of the act as well as conversation at our table.

Enjoyed our evening! Great food as always but our table was well out of the way. Wish I had booked over the phone to ensure a more desirable table. Nonetheless, the out of the way table made for easier conversation. And the wait staff made sure to take care of us.
We ordered pizza—our go-to at Manhattan’s and it was as usual, fabulous.

We enjoyed our dinner and the music, our server seemed to be a bit overwhelmed we waited too long on things like the bill and even coffee and then finally when he came back he advised there was no cream for the coffee? Huh on a long weekend? Very odd, will go back but no rush.

We thoroughly enjoyed our visit. Baked Brie was excellent, Caesar Salad was very good, Pizza was as very good as always. Music was enjoyable, and danceable, although there is no dance floor per ce, dancing is encouraged. Staff and owners were friendly and approachable. We will definitely return.

Great restaurant, very pleasant staff, good food! Not overly pricy but I just got the regular pasta and wasn’t anything too special. Though my boyfriend got their steak and he loved it! Their Lychee cocktail was awesome and the music was very nice.

Manhattan's is our home away from home! We're always welcomed by the most fabulous Maria and Darren, their wonderful energy and love for people, food and fun is in every move they make. Their smiles are genuine and contagious and we can't help be in awe of this quaint gem. This is our rare dining experience where they remember our names, after the first meet, and greet us like a long time friend each and every time. It's endearing and we can't help but love them back. The service is always second to none, the menu is delish, and the music absolutely fantastic! Make a rezo, sit back and enjoy. You won't be disappointed!
