Our daughter and son bought us a gift certificate for our anniversary knowing we love a great food experience. Unfortunately this was not one. I ordered the lamb shank and when I went to taste it it was room temperature and dry. I tried a...piece fron the other side and it was warmer but still almost like eating a drumstick. I normally don't make a reservation at a restaurant for their first seating but assumed this to be different and I would not be getting what appeared to be a leftover from the previous day. My wife enjoyed her tuna but was not happy about the portion size which she estimated at 4-5 ounces. The restaurant opens at 5:30 and we had reservations for 6 so it was not busy. Service was fine. I did not complain to the staff but did not eat most of it either.More
We had a lovely experience from the moment we walked in the door. The atmosphere is warm and inviting, the staff is engaging and eager to assist and serve without hovering. The food was delicious and exquisitely presented. The menu is filled with wonderful choices....We enjoyed the lamb shank, pork shoulder and filet. We will be back with friends!More
We ate at the bar as we could not get a reservation. Service and experience was excellent!
The lamb shank was the best I have ever had and the fish special was equally as good. The provided sides were interesting, flavorful and different, and highly...complemented the entrees.
We also shared a scallpop appetizer which was perfect.
Bartenders do a great job crafting interesting cocktails and the wine list is extensive (although the by-the-glass list is limited).More
Good food interesting menu, sensible portion sizes. A place for serious eaters. Service was attentive without being hovering, our waitress was knowledgeable. Manna is a place for serious sensible people who prefer to be treated as grownups.
Crafty cocktails and fantastically delicious dinner. I fall to pieces menu.. You have to start with the warm sour dough bread with citrus butter. Moved on to the seared scallops. Next up, Hickory Chicory Dock salad. Finish with the outer banks tuna. All fresh to...table & deliciousness. Birthday dessert was perfection with a creamy chocolate mousse cake with toasted sesame seeds. High price point & totally worth the expense for the 4 diamond star service & quality. Cozy, chic environment.More
Fun time with good food!! Service was very prompt and friendly! My only complaint is as much as I like romantic restaurants it’s a little too dark in there! I had to use my phone flashlight just about the whole time. Even the server said...it’s too dark.More
Can't say enough wonderful things about Manna. Our first visit will not be our last. The restaurant is charming and acoustically good for conversation. Food is just sensational. We have never had a better cheese assortment...the jams and purees served with cheeses were so delicious..you...didn't need bread though they provided it. Main was the tuna...over a pumpkin seed puree with green beans, tiny potatoes and caper berries...we almost licked our plates. Servers were delightful. Just over the moon that Wilmington has such a great place!!!More
