My wife and I were having a lazy Saturday afternoon and decided to take an early reservation here. It was our 2nd time eating here and the meal again was very tasty. The decor and ambiance are great for a night out with your significant other and the food portions are huge. We started with the chop chop salad which... More

I went for a visit after some glowing recommendations from coworkers. While TMG is a solid restaurant, it can't compete with some of the amazing restaurants in this city. Pros: Montalcino by the glass. A comfortable and nice atmosphere. Cons: Food and service were mediocre. Citrus thyme shrimp with black bean hummus was tasty so long as you avoided the... More

Although this is not one of Philadelphia's greatest restaurants (of which there are many, many), it is very good ... and, no small feat, very consistent. We no longer live in Philadelphia, so our recent visit came after two years away. The menu had changed some, of course, but still featured many of the reliables--like the Chop Chop Salad, which...

A group of 9 of us ate here after a business meeting. This restaurant, near Rittenhouse square, is surrounded by a plethora of outstanding food establishments, and to survive in this environment, you need to stand out. Unfortunately, Twenty Manning Grill does not. The service staff is young, poorly trained and although seemingly well intentioned not able or willing to... More

We have eaten here several times over the years and really like the cocktails and the food. The acoustics really are quite horrendous, so if you don't like noise, skip it... otherwise though, it does make for a relatively good atmosphere, provided you can hear yourself speak! ;-) Great veggie options too - the veggie curry is particularly good :-)

This is a local bistro located near Rittenhouse Square that has consistently produced excellent food. For tourists and locals the menu is varied, offers gluten free options and makes mean Martinis. Highly recommended.

Dined here 8/23/2014. Had calamari and pot stickers apps- both very good. My wife and daughter ordered the scallops which were slightly overcooked. My steak frites was excellent- extremely tender NY strip was cooked to a perfect medium. Service was a little spotty. Apps brought to table, had to ask server to bring plates for sharing. Overall a good meal... More

My husband and I always joke that interesting is not the same thing as good but, in the case of the menu at Twenty Manning, it was. The menu has a wide range of cuisine types and the ones we had were all good. We started with the gyoza which were excellent! My husband had the Beef with Noodles and... More
