Superb summer meal

After enjoying a fabulous meal in January, we returned with a party of six for a summer menu as the prix fixed menu changes monthly. I must say the service continues to excel. The wait staff was attentive but does not hover. When dishes are either placed on the table or removed, there are three... read more

Everything about Manresa is absolute top class. The food, the service, the drink, the setting, even the bathrooms (I'm sure many people almost get stuck in there reading the wonderful menus from top restaurants around the world). Yes David Kinch is a food genius and he has gathered a team of professionals that will pamper you. It doesn't matter if... More

We think this restaurant is more for catering to the local snob crowd. We were travelers and saw good reviews on here so we tried to get a reservation with them. We called all day the day before and the day of when we wanted to dine. All of our calls went to an answering machine, day and night. No... More

We collect Michelin starred restaurants. We love them, and have traveled throughout CA, NY, and Europe to visit them. It's our weakness. Our dinner at Manresa was WEAK. We were just so disappointed. Let me set the stage - you come into Manresa, and at your table is a little sheet of paper that lists what the ingredients will be... More

The last time I ate in a Michelin-star restaurant was over a year ago in Bilbao, so I am not a frequent Michelin-star diner. Manresa was my first 2-star Michelin restaurant, but I was already familiar with their breads from the Manresa Bread Project. I celebrated my birthday here and had a wonderful time. They easily accommodated allergies. When we... More

Dining at Manresa feels more like having an indulgent tasting menu in the home of a famous chef...because that's basically what it is! We can't afford to eat here often, but it's our favorite go-to for really special occasions like our anniversary. You must try the truffles when they are in season! Staff is attentive and knowledgable. We were there... 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.
