Wonderful meal in a gorgeous setting.

We recently had dinner here over a weekend. The menu, service and food was outstanding. We chose to eat out in the garden and it was just perfect. So pretty as the sun was setting with flowers everywhere. The meal was top notch with nice different offerings. I had the shrimp stuffed ravioli with... read more

I've had several dinners at the bar this year and loved it. However this time the scallop Blt was changed to scallops wrapped in bacon. Not nearly as good. Also had a grazing board. Not only was there no lavash but crackers were carelessly thrown on the board. I will not recommend to my clients.

My mom and I visited the Manisses for dinner on a Tuesday night in July. We sat in the garden which was so pretty and peaceful. I started with the Beet Dispute which was a a delicious combination of diced beets and diced pears with a pistachio butter! Heavenly! My mother had the halibut for her entree which was sliced...

The Manisses Garden is a regular must-visit spot on our annual Block Island trip. One night away from the kids for fine dining, and we choose the Manisses. If the weather cooperates, be sure to sit outside in the gardens, where you can be amongst beautiful flowers, and may even catch a glimpse of a camel or kangaroo... Attentive and... More

Enjoyed a great late evening dinner for two outside in the garden. Weather was a bit chilly once the sun went down but very comfortable with a light jacket. Atmosphere was beautiful and peaceful, great place for a relaxing dinner. The service was very below average. The bread and water came out with no problems but it took a while... More

Enjoyed two dinners at the Manisses during our stay on BI. Lovely outdoor garden seating area. Excellent service, drinks, and appetizers. Main courses were inconsistent. Last night's Mahi Mahi special (2 of us had it) was overcooked and dry and the overall dish was fair. Lobster lasagna was very good. On previous visit the striped bass special was excellent but...

One of my favorite dining experiences on Block Island, the Manisses delivers year after year. The setting is serene and away from the hustle and bustle. The menu varies from classics with an interesting twist to some really unique combinations. Most important, this fine dining experience offers the largest and most varied menu to be found on Block Island. Their... More

Absolutely delicious meal. We went the night after the changed the entire menu and wow--they knocked it out of the park right away. The burrata was fabulous. Wine great. Entrees were delicious. Cannot say enough good things. Plus our adorable waitress was fantastic. We sat outside in the garden and it was lovely. Not a place I'd bring my kids... More

The service and food did not live up to the beautiful dining garden and the pricey menu. Although the starter did not disappoint, the main course was tasteless. It took a long time to get served, so could have sat under the heat lamps. Was looking forward to the strip bass, portion size was good but it was dry and... More
