Good food; high noise level

Had dinner over the weekend with another couple at Twenty Manning. The restaurant is very small and cozy. You weren't on top of another table but it did make for a high noise level. I definitely had to shout at my friends for them to hear me. We still had a good meal and can overlook the noise... read more

My escargot had a brown sweet sauce that hid their flavor. The hanger steak was good as were the shoestring french fries. However, the noise level was so high we could not hear each other. My ears hurt for one hour after I left the restaurant.

Incredibly interesting food and drinks at 20 manning grill. Started with the calamari, one of the best I have had. Interesting flavours, dip was great, and just the right crunch. Maryland crab and avocado was light and refreshing on a warm summer evening. Oysters...beginner oysters, but good nonetheless, and you don't see 6 for $12 anymore. Mains...Mushroom ravoli, savoury and... More

Just a 15 minute walk from the Franklin Institute. Family friendly with food choices for all ages/preferences. Accommodating of special diets (as most places claim to be these days). Very friendly staff. The kitchen knows what it's doing - the menu is not extensive, therefore the selections should be done well every time. All the dishes we had were excellent.... More

Pretty space, varied menu and knowledgeable servers made for a great meal. We took our server's recommendations and he steered us right! Drinks also delicious and he gave us a recommendation as to where to go after dinner.

Went there for dinner on a Friday evening with three friends. Three of the four of us were very happy with our choices. I had the Charbroiled Beef Sirloin Noodles, which I thought was excellent, very flavorful and filling. The friend who had the beautifully presented Pan Seared Scallops cleaned her plate. The third friend who really liked her meal... More

Under the same ownership as Audrey Claire, and the service reflects that. The staff is courteous and knowledgeable about their product. The cocktail menu is creative and exciting, while the wine list provides something for everyone. I find this to be a nice location for adults to enjoy a wonderful meal or enjoy a quiet drink. I especially appreciate that... More

A really great spot in Rittenhouse, highly recommended. Everything here is delicious and they have some very creative offerings. My wife and I tried Twenty Manning for restaurant week and we'll be back again for sure. They had some nice wines and draft beer selections, and the environment was cozy yet open. This place seemed to be more popular a... More

We traveled to Twenty Manning on a busy Friday night. We had a reservation and were seated right away. The restaurant is small with a loud bar scene. It was difficult to hear others in our party of 6. Service was brisk and our drink and "snack" orders were taken promptly. Appetizers were great: raw tuna, pot stickers, marinated olives... More

Located in an old building, the venue is quite nice with vintage tin ceilings and wood floors. The food was fine. I had the salmon and my wife had the ravioli, both of which we enjoyed. Unfortunately, the bar and restaurant are located in the same room and the noise level is high. It was difficult to carry on a... More
