Every bite was wonderful and we shared our dishes so we could experience addition items. For us it is very expensive so it is for special occasions. The servers know every dish and its ingredients and that helped make a selection they were also helpful making wine recommendations. The staff is helpful and not pretentious.

We were invited to join another couple to celebrate a very special occasion and indeed this is a very special high end expensive treat. Service outstanding and food presentation an art form. A absolute delight and highly recommend but warning bring your check book.

This restaurant is definitely not worth the price! We had to eat a lot of bread to leave the restaurant with a full stomach. Dishes are ok, but there are restaurants in the Bay area with 1 star that are much better.

What is not to like in this place, Attentive service, food that will tease and scintillate. It will ultimate satisfy the most critical palate. The last time I was there, I left slightly unfilled, this time 100% satisfied. The service really added to the experience. Every one is helpful and everyone has a smile on their face, really, every one,... More

We had a dinner at Manresa last month. The food was great. The service was fantastic. David Kinsch had a lot of pleasant surprises in the menu. We really enjoyed the duck dish and the soup. Everything was a expected. If I had to complain, I would say that the staff was a little tight and formal but the service... More

This restaurant is way overrated. It does not deserve the ranking given. The preparation of food was very poor. I ordered duck for my main course. It came way under-cooked, and truly tough to chew. The favor was very bland. I was tempted to return it but did not want to wait again for the time to prepare another meal;... More

Manresa isn't a "restaurant" - it is an artistic and sensual evening with food. Each mini-course of the 3 amuse bouche portions, the 8 savory plates and the 3 dessert experiences were notable, beautiful and delectable. The wine we chose was luscious. The evening lasted over a course of three un-noticed and leisurely hours. I didn't realize the time until... More
