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

This is "a nice restaurant" and I've been twice and not been overwhelmingly impressed. They have a very good menu, but on my first visit (dinner), the service was awful. Our server was simply rude and childish, afraid to ask the chef any questions for our vegetarian friends, saying he would get yelled at. The second time I went, for... More

Located in the basement of the Perry Bldg. in Lufkin, TX, the decor reminds of a New York Steak House, but with a menu unlike you will find in any big city. This is the place for special occasions and business dinners, they have a great lunch also. The owner Destin is a great host and his staff is excellent.... More

I was traveling in Lufkin on a business trip. Some of my peers suggested we eat dinner here. I had Seafood Alfredo and it was not good at all. Service was great, but food was not. My noodles were very overcooked. They were mush. My scallops were very chewy. I could not even finish this meal and I decided not... More

We love Manhattan and have made it our "special" place. Our kids both got their engagement rings there. My husband and I go there for Valentine's Day and birthdays. We lived in Eastern Europe for 10 years and this place brings back so many memories. The atmosphere is so European and we love the steaks. Everything just has a lot... More
