Friendly staff and great presentation of the flaming coffees. A lot of fun and a great way to end an evening on the Island.

We so enjoyed our swordfish dinner that we returned for the exact same thing the next evening, the 4-top table again, in front of the lit fireplace. Again, excellent service, wonderful ambience. Can't say enough.

The atmosphere was relaxing and romantic. The service was exquisite. The food was delicious. We had a hard time deciding where to dine on our one evening in Block Island, but we definitely made the right choice!

Beautiful dining room, great food and service. Downside....a table of very loud and obnoxious people! We had butternut and lobster bisque which I enjoyed but my husband found a little bland. The waitress Rachel was great and saw that he was not eating it and offered another appetizer which was the clams casino that melted in your mouth. For dinner... More

Wife and i spent a very late season week on Block Island. We walked in to very pleasant surroundings, what looks to be a recently built extension to a basement bar. We decided to sit at the bar instead of taking a table. Bartender was great. She is a local and remained engaged while working hard. Drinks were generous, service... More

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.

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...
