We bought a living social coupon for this place was very happy with the results. I had the eggplant Parmesan which was very good. The bowl of past fagioli is huge and could be it's own meal with a salad. My wife enjoyed the Gluten free options. The place is sort of big in an open air kind of way,... More

We are a young family ( three small children). I was very pleasantly surprised with this restaurant. I was not sure what to expect based on the recent reviews. The food was great. I was impressed with the kids meals. The chicken fingers were not your typical frozen grocery store variety. Both the chicken, and the fries, appear to be... More

They put up a tacky sign on the front door stating they would not accept vouchers today - which was Valentine's day. They must be on there way out to act like this. They have much better competitors on Randall with better food, service and prices, so can't imagine they will last much longer. Good riddance.

Restaurant posts a Groupon with no black out dates, then refuses service 2/15/2014 after we already drive there?!?! Spoke with Michael the manager and pointed out that the groupon had no restrictions and he said it didn't matter, he was not accepting it tonight. While we were there 2 other couples walked out with Groupons and one other couple that... More

The management team is so important in making a good impression. Management should not hide instead of coming to talk to patrons when there's a problem. Also, when reservations are made, it should be clearly stated if there are any restrictions. Mandiles offered a groupon and was not clear about the restrictions. Very disappointed and now I remember why I... More

Have eaten here many times but just posting a review now. You cannot go wrong with pretty much anything on the menu. The sausage and peppers and calamari (grilled or fried) are the best I have ever had in the area. The seafood ravioli is amazing, if I was eating it at home I would likely lick the plate clean,...

Atmosphere: 6/10 - they are trying to make it look like an old world Italian village setting, but the exposed-ventilation ceiling and small room just don't make it work. Also, the tile floor and exposed ceiling make the noise level loud all the time. Food: 4/10 - spinach gnocchi dish had obviously been cooked in same pan/dish/oven as a fish... More

My husband and I love going to Mandiles! The food is delicious, the service is excellent, the atmosphere is lovely - you won't be disappointed! My favorite is their spinach gnocchi! Also, be sure to try their salad - best house dressing anywhere!
