Manna has great atmosphere and the food was sensational. My martini with lavender infused vodka just perfect my meal. Our particular server was not versed in the menu and didn't really seem sure about anything, however we still enjoyed ourselves.

Great food and very good service. This is NOT to be missed. We were walk-ins and they seated us promptly even though they were booked.

Excellent food quality prepared with unique accompanying items. A bit pricey but worth it. Figure your apps at about $10 and entrée about $30. Drinks are average. Great presentation and flavors, and some unusual dishes. loved the pork belly app.

It was recommended to me as one of the best restaurants in town, and it did not disappoint -- creative cocktails, seasonal fare, cute atmosphere... we ate copiously, and well.

We went to Manna last night with a group from my retirement community. We were seated at several tables which was perfect because large tables are not very social. The food, as in the past, was imaginative, well prepared and beautifully plated. At our table the service was unimaginably bad. We had first courses and then waited for an hour... More

Not only was the whole experience just wonderful, but Paul could not have been nicer or more accommodating. If we lived closer we would be regulars.

Just sit and the bar and man crush all over Ian the bartender stud. The Manhattan Project drink ....best I've ever seen and tasted. Every where I go I request one and none have come close to the amazing manna concoction.

I took my friends here and the service was push, push and Paul never quit. This is suppose to be a high end restaurant not whip you in and out. We asked him to give us time but he had his own agenda plus the restaurant was not even busy. As others have said the music was way to loud... More

The outside of the restaurant may be a bit off putting but that shouldn’t deter a visit to Manna. 5 of us enjoyed a very good meal on April 24th. Robin was our hostess and server. She was knowledgeable about the menu and paced the meal well. Cocktails were excellent. We started with a cheese and charcuterie course and with... More

When my husband asked me where I wanted to celebrate our anniversary, I didn't hesitate...."Manna", I said. On the special night, we arrived prior to our reservation so that we could sit at the bar for a while with a glass of champagne and watch the Manna bartenders, who are world class, do their good work. Finally, we were seated... More
