The food is imaginative, well-presented, without being "too, too"; service is competent, knowledgeable; setting is picturesque, charming, quiet enough for conversations. We come back every year, try other upscale restaurants on the island and they really don't compare.

Great romantic setting and delicious food. We had the swordfish and a ribeye steak that were very flavorful.

Before you have dinner, watch the sun go down at their hilltop adirondack lounge. The old hotel and the grounds are really worth a visit, even just for a cocktail. Don't miss it!

We dined with friends here on the Sunday of labor day weekend. The service was exceptional. We weren't rushed and got to enjoy our friends company for a good long time. We tried much of the menu even dessert and it was all delicious. Wish they opened earlier for drinks. It was the highlight of our block island trip.

We dined here 2 years ago and I couldn't say enough nice things about the Manisses... this time it was ok. I mean everything was fine... it just wasn't the excellence or quality that it was 2 years ago. I hope this was just a fluke, because it is such a lovely place. We all agreed that our meals were...

Food, wine, atmosphere all perfect. My husband had the swordfish and I had the crispy gnocchi. Some of the best oysters we've had.

two couples out for a child-free double anniversary celebration. Service - Very spotty. Our water glasses were filled up after every sip but one cocktail was forgotten until reminded and even then not brought until food arrived. The appetizer plates lingered on the table and had to be cleared after entrees came. Perhaps a little picky, but considering the venue... More

We have been coming to Manisses Gazebo for over 9 years. Each year we delight in the new and different choices on the menu, especially as we are fresh fish and vegetarian only diners. The Gazpacho of Heirloom tomatoes, watermelon, peaches and berries was luscious.

We had desserts and flaming coffee on the porch. It was very special. The crustless cheesecake was surrounded by a thick, delicious berry sauce and real whipped cream. Its presentation was beautiful. A skilled waitress put on an absolute show while serving the flaming coffee, which was literally set afire. Mine was made of Cointreau, Kahlua and espresso coffee. It... More

We had a great time here. Table for 8 for our son's 14th birthday. The service is really great, the food is wonderful and it's a nice restaurant that doesn't insist you dress up... But it's such a lovely place, you want to.
