Almost perfect

I find it hard to fault. But just not worthy of the full 5 star. Our server was 'nice' enough and that can make a big difference in a good or totally awful review. Food was beautifully presented and very tasty I had the scallop au gratin and my husband the airline chicken. Both of us cleared our... read more

This was a very good meal, all of the restaurants on 5th run specials during the slow season and Mangrove really had a great menu and value promotion. We were able to select 1 entre each- a salad and a bottle of wine for 39.99! Unfortunitally our server was inconvenienced from the minute we told her we were interested In... More

We love the wine and dine option but unless you can sit outside we find it too noisy to hear the conversation at the table. It is a very busy place and tables are very close together. Best to visit on a week night.

We were drawn to the Mangrove cafe by the advert in the window $39.99 for 2 meals including a bottle of wine. The waitress was very helpful explaining what we could choose. We had the salad which was very tasty. My wife ordered the chicken and I ordered the sirloin steak medium to well. When I cut into the steak... More

We were strolling Fifth Avenue perusing menus for a place for dinner and came upon The Mangrove Cafe. The dinner special sounded too good to be true. You could order any of an eclectic array from the menu and it included a salad, bread and bottle of wine We were debating be tween red and white and Deanne was nice... More

This smallish restaurant features great food and a "special" that includes a nice bottle of wine, with my total bill coming to $26. I think you have to ask about the special because I don't remember it being on the menu. Would have double checked this before posting this review, but their web page doesn't load easily and then seems... More

...but I must report that your service has improved much from my last few visits - that's why I stopped coming. The food is always great, corner patio atmoshpere is just so cool. And although we started a bit rough with the service it nicley caught up to itself. Food was delicious, wine upgrade is a bit high, but overall... More
