Ate here after hearing great reviews and sorry to say but was disappointed, the starter was nice but the main let it down, had the spare ribs and there was little to no meat on them, was still hungry leaving 😞 very expensive for what you get plus I found the staff very lackadaisical especially on a busy evening.

We were shown to our table by a very friendly gentleman and served by an equally friendly waitress, there was a good choice from the early bird menu and the a la carte, the food was very good, though the portion of cod was a little small for a hungry man, but we will go back again and look forward...

The Manhattan is a lovely resteraunt with excellent service. Service was prompt as was the Taking up of your orders . Staff were pleasant however the lamb dish I had was awash with gravy and felt sloppy to eat more suited to eating with a spoon than a knife or fork.

Dear Jagaboyd, Thank you for your review and feedback. The Lamb Shank is hugely popular, however we have changed the dish so that the gravy is now served in a separate container on the side so that our customers can use as much or as little as they wish. Thank you for your feedback and we hope to see you... More

Recently visited the Manhattan for a 3rd time and had to write some words on the experience. We were a table of 12 this time. Having previously dined in a smaller group, the quality and service was just as great. The steaks are absolutely divine, with portions the perfect amount for me (bigger the better). Drinks first in the bar... More

The food was delicious. We all ordered different from the menu and we're all extremely happy. I'd highly recommend!! The only thing was it was a little over priced. But I guess it was worth it!!! :-)
