I've been coming to Gainesville for years, never impressed with the dining options here. But a client alerted me to Manuel's and could not believe I hadn't been yet. So I made a reservation for two and went at 7pm on a Tuesday night. It's a small place in a row of storefronts downtown, easy to miss. I walked over... More

Pear purses. Eat them. You're welcome. No further description necessary. As for the rest of the experience, the wait staff if very knowledgeable and professional. The small group works as a team, which is refreshing, compared to other high-end eateries that are somewhat cutthroat. Wine list lacks imagination and variety in comparison with the food. The snails were average. My... More

Had dinner here for our first time! Had the steak and it was as good as any one will find in Gainesville! Comfortable and relaxing couples atmosphere with exceptional customer service. Very friendly staff. Price was worth the excellent food and service. Have a business dinner coming up? Impress them here. We will be going back soon!

Got sat at a too-small 2-top in this crowded little restaurant. Asked for lemon for our waters...uh, not so much. House Merlot was quite nice. Meals were attractively served, but unremarkable. Manuel himself came over personally to say hello...we told him it was our 45th wedding anniversary, but no recognition. Oh well, pretty nice night overall.

Every aspect of this restaurant is fantastic. The atmosphere is quaint, sophisticated, and romantic. The food is amazing- every dish I've had has been delicious. The wine list is diverse, and the service is impeccable. Manuel's vintage room is the perfect spot to celebrate a birthday, anniversary, graduation, or other special occasion. It's also by far the best restaurant for... More

I had the pleasure of dining here recently while in town on business. What a truly spectacular dining experience! As soon as you walk into this lovely restaurant in the heart of Gaineville's downtown you are transported to an Italian trattoria with its brick walls, burnished wood floors, Italian inspired menu, and an extensive and exquisite wine selection. We started... More

Five of us went to Manuel's on a Friday night. The resturant was packed. We did make reservations before time. The resturant is small only about 10-15 tables. The food was delicious and the dinners were large portions. All dinners were al la cart. We had the chictken Marsala $19, shrimp & shrooms $21, lamb bolo $22, pasta Della casa... More
