My wife & I dined here recently in this very nice modern restaurant. We both ordered New York sirloin steak. I specifically asked the waitress whether they served real or frozen chips as I can’t stand ready made frozen chips. I was assured the chips were fresh cut, but when they arrived they were chunky style frozen chips from a... More

We serve freshly cut chunky homemade chips as stated in the menu and we do not practice false advertising.

My sister and I arrived in Donegal in the afternoon and were exploring the town. We came across Manhattan and decided to go in. The restaurant is located on the 2nd level, so you cannot see the restaurant from the outside, but walking up the flight of stairs was well worth it. Wall paintings of Johnny Depp and Sarah Jessica... More

After reading the reviews, we sought out the Manhattan Steakhouse and are glad we did. It happened to be Father's Day, which is also celebrated in Ireland and lots of families and children were there, including a table of about 20 of all ages. The restaurant has no street presence and very little atmosphere inside, but the food more than... More

Don't let the outside put you off. It looks like a poky hole but go along a short corridor and up to the first floor, there is a lift, and you will be pleasantly surprised. We were on a three night b & b break to Harvey's Point (lovely hotel but my husband wasn't thrilled by the "fancy" dinner menu)... More

Staying over for a couple of nights we tried the Manhattan as recommended. Well worth a visit, the service was good and the Monk fish special was fantastic. A clean and smart look makes it a good place to eat. Phillsr Southampton

I had the special of the night which was monkfish tails wrapped in bacon with a crab, red pepper and potato mash accompanied with roasted vegetables. This dish was exceedingly good. My husband had a steak which was tender and delicious - cooked to perfection. This place is a must to go to!

never disappointed with the food here. I had mozzerella sticks with a really nice spicy dip to start and fish cakes for main. Was enough for two in the starter. My husband had the garlic steak sandwich followed by an apple crumble - delicious. Would definitely recommend it. The only negative I have is that it is too bright which... More

Very nice restaurant close to the Diamond on Main St ( opposite Paul's Off License) Good quality food, reasonably priced, the wine selection is good too. Don't let the "steakhouse" name put you off, their fish is always fresh, the mussels are divine , they do pasta, vegetarian, chicken and lots more. The staff are local and personable and the...
