Creative food, very formal

This is fixed price menu of around 14 items for $198. They are very accommodative of vegetarians & those with dietary needs. Each portion is small. The food is creative & the ingredients are explained. You need to plan 2-4 hours to enjoy this. They also have an alcoholic & non alcoholic drink... read more

Return visit here after the closure & fire. Menu now prix fixed & still wonderful. In fact, I don't know how but the food & experience were even better than before. Service could easily be stuffy if not in the correct hands- but our head waiter was anything but- Funny, amusing, chatted with us about all the ingredients & made... More

What a fabulous restaurant with passionate staff who obviously love what they do and take such pride in the service. We went for our wedding anniversary and were made to feel very special, the menu was just a list of ingredients that would appear in a certain order, so each dish was a great surprise and we chose the pairings...

Spectacular flavors, wonderful wine pairing, and the service was efficient but not stuffy. Definitely deserving of at least 2 Michelin stars.

The restaurant recently reopened after a fire and unfortunately we smelled the remnants of smoke damage as we entered the restaurant but we didn't notice shortly after we sat down. Be prepared to spend some change for a fabulous dining experience. Food comprised of nine dishes plus three desserts. It was a taster menu and portions were small so you... More

The food is totally unique and fabulous - but what really sets it apart is the service. The waiters/waitresses are in sync and serve each person the dish simultaneously, with a flourish. Plan to spend a few hours there. Menus change with the seasons. We love it!

This restaurant offers a tasting menu only. We could have an option to have cheese before dessert. We took premium wine pairing. The choices of wine was excellent. I think total 8 or 9 glasses of wine were served. It seemed worth the price. Every plate was beautifully arranged and tasty. Definitely this is one of my best dishes in... More

We celebrated our 28th anniversary at Manresa. During 3-hour 14-course, we enjoyed all perfectly prepared dishes with very beautiful presentation. Nice service too! Thanks for such a memorable dinner, way to celebrate 28th anniversary.

One caveat: we have not set foot at Manresa for a long time AND dining at French Laundry has spoiled us for anything following it. I give four stars, if not for the ambition. Maybe Manresa has changed since the fire....We found the interior - then - to leave a lot to be desired, if one wants a complete experience,... More

Celebrated place, most people love it I think because of the reputation. Expect very tiny portions at astronomical prices (Is this NYC or London?!) also the chairs are miserable and tables so close you can smell your neighbor...at least pre fire. BUT! If you are a foodie...you will LOVE it!
