I had a very large turkey sandwich and the Russian potato salad. He had a pizza. They were both very good. The best thing about this place is the pastry chef. There is a large selection of desserts. I recommend the éclair cake.

Comparing to Sherman's, which is small and very crowded, and there is almost always a long wait, Manhattan in the Desert is spacious, friendly, efficient and offers as many if not more menu choices. The food is wonderful. We did not find it too salty and the portions were generous. We will go back.

4 of us had a wonderful lunch here. Enough to feed 6 hungery people. Service was excellent. The chocolate brownie cake and cheesecake one of the best we have eaten. My husband is a real chocolate, chocolate person and he went back and got another piece to take home. We cannot say enough about this great deli. Will be back... More

My wife and I visited for dinner in February, 2015. This second location for Manhattan was opened in Fall, 2014- very modern, clean lines and large. The food at the take-out counter is all mouth-watering. We started with the matzoh-ball soup, which was in a chicken soup broth, with some carrots- much to salty. The restaurant has a great special-... More

Friends had recommended this restaurant, saying it was as good as Scherman's. We disagree strongly. We waited a long time to be seated. The famous corned beef sandwich was sub standard. The pizza was tasteless. Once seated, the service was very friendly and quite efficient. It was mostly the food, we were not happy with.

If you like Manhattan Clam Chowder, THIS is the BEST place in the world to taste it today! I remember the Manhattan Clam Chowder at Keelers in Albany, NY when I was 7 and thought it was the best I'd ever had in my life. No more - go to Manhattan in the Desert! A wondrous dish! I also had... More

One of my favs in the desert. Food,is,always good and more than enough for two if you order a dinner. make sure to share for,the extra couple of bucks so you each get a soup or salad and a full dinner plate. Ribs and brisket of beef are excellent.

Menu with huge selection of choices running the gamut from breakfast through desserts. Be aware that almost everything here comes in the oversized portion-is that were a bad thing? Everything our party of five had was excellent. Top off your meal with one of the outstanding selection of pastries.

We have driven by this place without stopping but noted that it always looked busy. Now I know why. If you are familiar with Shermans here in the valley, it is very similar. The menu is extensive, the service friendly and efficient, the food well priced and delicious. I ordered the Mish Mash, hoping for a light meal. The matzo... More
