This is modern food well presented and unlike most US restaurants. It was tasty and innovative and the presentation reflected what you find in the best places around the world. Service was also top class.

Beautifully thought out menu, well presented and fine service. I enjoyed the scallops with a delicious beet salad to start. At our table of 5 not one complaint, even from the owner of another local restaurant who was in our party.

The food was great, including salad, puerto rico, rabbit and diver scallops. Very good service, the owner helping also, nice atmosphere not to my taste in art, but ok, made interesting. Expensive, worth it.

Upon entering, the ambiance strikes the diner as upscale elegant chic in close-quarters. The music and lighting are right and low. The glass and cutlery clinks appropriately and on cue. A nice shelter from the cold or rain, I'm sure. The seating presented itself as...More

We were really looking forward to eating at Manna for the first time last night (Saturday, Jan. 16). But it was far below expectations. First of all, the young woman who handed us the cocktail menu was rude. My friend asked her if we could...More
