Description: At Ponce we specialize in Exquisite Fusion Cuisine. Start the day with a perfect crema latte and flaky French crossaint. By noon the lavendar goat cheese salad beckons, followed by a home brewed cup of chai and our famous chocolate chip cookies. Finally the day is complete over a relaxing candlelight dinner of salmon tarragon bisque and tenderly broiled raspberry chipotle skirt steak, accompanied by a favorite Cabernet that you brought with you.

It is a lovely restaurant with nice atmosphere. There is a bar on one site with few tables and a fireplace. The dining room is adjacent to the bar area with few tables and a large group table. The night we were there, there was a 3-person jazz band Good company and good music made somewhat bearable 1 hour and... More

The salad and sandwich selection is fresh, unique and different. Presentation is beautiful as are the personalities of the servers. The portions are just right, not over or under sized. The price is very good for the area. This old house was converted and the two dining areas are cozy, classy, and comfortable. This is my favorite place to have... More

Ponce's Chai Latté is excellent. It isn't from a box of concentrate, but homemade on site. I have been enjoying it for years. Yum!

We had soups and salads, good but a bit pricey. Also had mussels, good but average portion size. Not a full Bar, wine and beer only... Again a little pricey. The staff was very friendly and helpful, place was clean, food was good... It just didn't give me alot to rave about.

Ponce has charm, ambience, great service and a wonderful, diverse and creative menu. The restaurant, located in an old house, only has about 10-12 tables and our favorite, haven eaten here several times, is the table in front of the fireplace. The menu, prepared by chef owner Ron, a former Wall Street player who like others seeking a lifestyle change... More

portions small, sweet potato soup was tasteless and loaded with cheese curds, very strange. To make matters worse service quite slow. Place was empty on a Friday afternoon and evidently the server messed up our order--took 20 minutes to get a cup of soup that was not good

A lovely restaurant; very good food in a comfortable, relaxed setting. The menu is interesting and varied and the staff friendly and helpful. It is obvious that a lot of care is taken with the quality of the food and how it is cooked and presented. There are several good places to eat in Manchester; this is one of them... More
