Hidden in the basement of the old Perry's building in downtown Lufkin, you will find the best restaurant in Lufkin. The atmosphere is good and the food is excellent. The menu is varied, including steaks, seafood and Italian. We had the chateaubriand and it was exceptional. They also have a good selection of wines and a full bar.

we were introduced to Manhattans a few years ago by a friend and have been going back regularly since. The owner, Destin, is from Italy and he along with his wife operate the restaurant. The atmosphere is awesome and perfect for a nice lunch or a fabulous Dinner. Destin always makes you feel welcome and will remember your name upon... More

My husband and I celebrated our 19 th anniversary at Manhattan! Great ambience, staff, great food and personal treatment. The manhattan filet can be cut with your fork. Red snapper wonderful! Owner greeted every table! Compliments to the chef! Lunch and evening dining a must!

Took out if town guests here. They quite enjoyed the lasagna. I usually get sea bass, grilled, with sauce on side to be a bit healthier. Steamed vegetables good, not over cooked. Tiramisu was good. Service can be spotty.

Very disappointing. We had a business lunch here recently and I was not pleased with this restaurant. The service was slow, for starters, despite the fact that there were only four tables filled while we were there. The waiter failed to bring hot bread, straws, drink refills. Someone even spotted him sitting down, lounging, in a nearby room when she... More

I Must Start By Staying That All Things Are Relative. If You Were In Any Major City You Would Consider This Resturant Slightly Above Average. But In Lufkin It Is Excellent. It Does Have A Nice Atmosphere And The food Was Good. IF You Find Yourself In Lufkin It Is A Must Go, Unless Cheap Mexican Is Your Thing. In... More

Manhattan Fine Dining aspires to be a fine dining establishment. Perhaps in Lufkin, there is a different definition of fine. The food was unimpressive and the service uneven. The restaurant is located in the basement of a downtown Lufkin office building. The entrance and elevator ride to the basement sets an expectation of Mad Men style ambiance, successfully created by... More

While visiting Lufkin, we had Manhatten's restaurant recommended........and we're so glad we did!! We loved everything about it!! The decor was wonderful and the food even better! Not one single complaint!! I had the steak stuffed with goat cheese filling......out of this world! And the Taramisu was the best I have ever eaten! The owner, Destin, is a very charming... More

The food was extremely heavy on all spices, my friend could not eat hers so I traded with her because I like spicy food. Alas I could not eat it either. And the cajun dish has so much cayenne it was inedible. The Italian dish tasted like it had a tablespoon of tex-mex chili powder in the tomato sauce. The... More
