We shared some appetizers-3 were plenty for the six of us. The entrees were reasonably priced and well prepared. I had the special filet of sole with a white wine, lemon and... More

I had the nightly special, Halibut with lemon and caper sauce. Wonderful. I came here for this first back in the early 1980's. it is always excellent. The appetizers, mains, desserts, drinks and coffees are all outstanding.

Our friends selected this restaurant as a meeting point halfway between our houses, not knowing much about it, so we really had no great expectations. This turned out to be one of the nicest dining experiences we have had! Everything was first rate from the cordial greeting to the excellent service, the food and ambiance. The four of us started...

Tonight, we met friends from Brooklyn in Elizabeth, NJ since that seemed like a good middle point. We were pleasantly surprised by the wonderful dinner we shared at Manolo's. The sangria, which started us off, was delicious though a bit stronger than usual. We had red and white...both equally yummy. The size of the pitcher was generous so 1/2 pitcher... More

My husband grew up in Elizabeth, and we were revisiting the restaurants in Elizabeth. Manolo's has been a long standing restaurant in the Elizabeth area. The food was good, but not outrageously great, it was average, and unfortunately, cannot remember what we had for dinner, although, I do remember having the soup for an app, and it was very good.

Manolo's did a fabulous job accommodating our party of 8 couples out for a celebratory dinner. The service was extraordinary. At times we had up to 4 different staff catering to our needs. Couple of highlights: both the white and red Sangria is excellent. The bread and peppers are fantastic. The Chorizos are out of this world. The rack of... More
