We haven't been here in awhile, we meet some friends, had acouple drinks in the bar area... watched some playoff football, then went into the dinning room for a wonderful steak dinner. My wife and I ordered the small filet with baked potatoe, small salad... the meal arrived in a timely manner... read more

I love this place, you feel like you are stepping back in time. It still has the look and feel of the 60's or 70's and they make a good steak. The great thing about Mancini's is the bread basket that comes out before your meal, and the plate of tomatoes, peppers and pickles. I can't say my steak has... More

Mancini's is a fixture in St. Paul. It is truly what a "char house" has always looked like. Make reservations as they are always booked up. They serve mouthwatering steaks, tender and juicy...cooked perfectly. It is one of the few places I eat where I love everything. I love to order sauteed onions and mushrooms with my steak. To start... More

One of the last & Best old St Paul Supper Clubs. Great atmosphere and excellent food. Loved the Shrimp Cocktail and steak. Good people watching.

My favorite thing about Mancini's is not the food - although the food is awesome - it's the atmosphere. The pictures of old Saint Paul in the lounge area that looks like nothing has changed since the 1950's, the live music, and the general vibe. I love grabbing a drink before dinner in the lounge and hopefully hearing some live... More

We were looking for a fine restaurant and this is what our friend recommended. She advised to make reservations, but we decided to just try to go early. Short wait in the bar, you look around and feel like you are on a cruise ship. About half hour we were taken to our seats. Excellent service! Small menu surprised me,... More

We have eaten here before, which excellent, but this time we went for the bar menu. It is smaller less expensive menu but it has the best steak sandwich I have ever tasted. Thick yet tender you can eat it like a hamburger, no knife needed. The taste was fantastic, the service was great, just like the regular dining room... More

The cooks at this place really know how to cook a steak to perfection. My petit filet was so tender and delicious. The ambiance in the dining hall is traditional, but for a real treat, head to the lounge with big red booths after dinner for music and dancing. Gary LaRue and the Rat Pack were on the stage performing... More

Stopped at Mancini's after brewing beer at Vine Park Brewing Co for a "birthday" dinner for BF and brother. We ordered steaks (2 Filets and 1 NY Strip). Service was excellent and the ambiance is great. Steaks?? Not so much. Food in my view and that of my brother's was just okay. My steak - cooked med well - had... More

Very disappointed in this meal. Maybe they ran out of band width in the kitchen but it was like they sprinkled Parmesan cheese on the way out of the kitchen. Was awful!
