We ate at this restaurant on our last night in Palm Springs. The portions of food are huge and the meal was satisfying. It is a busy restaurant, but we were served in a timely fashion. Since we have food allergies, we are always asking questions of our server. Our questions were answered and we enjoyed the meal.

This is a good average place for lunch with friends. The portions are huge so be prepared for a take away box. The wit staff were very busy but still maintained a great degree of efficiency. Nothing outstanding about this eatery, but nothing to complain about either.

It is with regret and mixed feelings that I write this review. We have gone to Manhattan in the Desert for lunch since it opened. My husband, when planning our annual trip, would say he couldn't wait to go and get one of their great corned beef or pastrami sandwiches. They are fabulous and so large that half always went...

I had a Monday morning breakfast there. The décor is very well done and the service is good. My server, Felipe C, was friendly and kept my coffee cup filled without hovering. My French toast was excellent; fluffy and light. It came with generous servings of both butter and syrup. Water is only served on request due to the water... More

Maybe it is just me but serving a lot of mediocre food is not the same as a good meal with smaller portions. I have tried their fish and chips, chicken dinner, meatloaf and I can't say any of these meals really set well with me. This is not a knock on the staff, they are great and the place... More

I gave an Octoberfest party and my friend who lives in Palm Springs offered to bring a German Chocolate Cake. She bought it at Manhattan's and it had to be the best cake we'd ever tasted. It was so beautiful to look at so I took it to the table so all could see the gorgeous cake. Not only was... More

I've been eating here for the past couple of years; the service has been good and the food as well. I ordered the chicken fettuccine, during my meal I bit in to a piece of chicken and found a bone in it. So the manager came over, "Bruno", and said well we only order boneless chicken & has no bones,... More

Great service, Great Food, all at a more than fair price. Every trip to Palm Springs now includes at least one meal at this magical place and I am thinking about starting a fan club. just the 2 of us or a group of 12 these folks always make it great. Very old school comfort food, and just look at... More
