All is good about this place - food, personal service, music & events, drinks, atmosphere. Often Thomas, the owner, is going around chatting with people & making you feel welcome. The concerts he hosts are always worth it, local talent & more. I'd hazard to say that it has become Guelph's iconic indie restaurant.

Great night out. Very cold draft beer which I love. Ladies had a great choice of $5 Martinis on a Saturday night, awesome deal! Shared some pasta and a Ella Pizza. Delicious and decent portions. Live music started at 8pm. Thanks to Tom, the friendly Owner of Manhattans for his 'special delivery' after we were completed our meal. We will... More

When my friends and I visited Manhattans a few months ago we were pleasantly surprised. The atmosphere and the food were amazing! There was an awesome band playing the best Jazz I have heard in a long time. We were not rushed out after we finished our food and we able to enjoy the music. Great place to go and... More

My brother and his wife had their wedding party here and it was such a great place to have fun with family and friends! The food was great, and the environment was cheerful, clean, and fun. The small stage for live music is a special addition to a dinner experience!

Wouldnt give this place any stars. After waiting over an hour and a half for food we had to send the pasta entries back after it was inedible. Waitress some back and argues and refuses to take it off the bill. I was blown away by the way the staff at this restaurant teats customers. Number one rule don't argue... More

Hi Stephanie. You received several apologies from your server, management and I for your disapproval of the pastas. We even offered to make your guests a new meal which you refused. We do not appreciate your dishonesty as both pastas were removed from your bill. Sincerely, Thomas More

The restaurant is located in a small strip mall and appears unassuming until you walk through the door to a trendy and well decorated establishment. Staff is extremely friendly and attentive and our dinner was superb. Two of us had the pasta carbonara and it was the best I've eaten. The guys had pizzas which they also raved about. It... More
