Manhattan is the only place in Lufkin where you can get seafood like Dover Sole (deboned table side by owner Destin) or Sea Bass. There is a tendency to over sauce and over salt. East Texas tastes, I guess. Destin will prepare things the way you like if you ask (grilled, sauce on side, etc.) so you... read more

Great food; great service; great atmosphere in the basement of an old 50's building. Last visit I had the Chicken Parmigiana and it was wonderful. Home made dressings are superior.

We had the Caprese appetizer, which was awesome. I had trout with piccata sauce. My brother had the Pasta Combo. I cannot remember what the dish was called that my husband had, but it was wonderful. All of our meals came with salads that were fresh and the house dressing was sooo good. All of our entrees were served at... More

My personal favorites (2) are the Grilled Salmon with Green Beans-Destin style (with onions and garlic); and the Linguine Arrrabbiata with Grilled Chicken. Both are mouth-watering, and I order one or the other almost every time I eat there. Then I get either a fresh green salad with tomatoes or their excellent chicken soup. At Manhattan Fine Dining the menu... More

One of the only fine dining restaurants in the Lufkin area, Manhatten never fails to spoil you. From dinner cocktails to dessert, all of the experience remains top quality. I recommend the prosciutto and goat cheese stuffed petit filet. The birthday cake Cosmo is the best! Enjoy!

If you are looking for a lovely dining experience, this is the place! Great Italian food! The menu has plenty of variety and there is an extensive wine list. Destin is the owner and He never forgets a face. You will feel welcome the minute you walk in...The restaurant is located downtown in the Perry Building.

They are over rated. The food is ok, but really expensive for what you get. Service is so-so. Did not really enjoy my experience there.

Manhattan is the long standing truly classy place to have a great lunch or dinner in Lufkin. They have a diverse menu, but the Italian options are wonderful. The lunch menu is great as well, bar is well stocked. We always walk away happy.

Very surprised to find such a great place to dine in Lufkin. Fabulous cuisine and service. The owner always makes it a point to visit with us every time we are there. Their signature filet is one of the best you will have. Great martini menu as well.

Service was great and food was good. It's a small intimate dining atmosphere, which was nice. Would definitely recommend for couples looking for a nice place to eat.
