I love to order from their Indian Menu. My favorite is the #8. The atmosphere is classic old school and nice. The owners always there making sure everyone is happy.

Visited Manhattans the other night with a colleague. The steak was not as favorable as I had anticipated but my wife had salmon and said it was very good. The have a wide variety of entrees so I will have to go back and try something else.

Don't miss this unique dining experience in downtown Lufkin if you love Italian food as much as we do. The atmosphere is wonderful and the service is great. A fun place to visit with special friends or family members.

The food was little more than average, but the service was attentive. I really enjoyed the atmosphere. The wine list is impressive.

Some of the best dishes are the more unique...stuffed pork chops, Chilean Sea Bass, and the Aged Beef Filets stuffed with Goat Cheese are to die for. Do not be afraid to be adventurous, top notch fresh salads are delish, and with house dressing. An all round pleasant dining experience in a unique, and historic location downtown!

I was a guest at Manhattan and was disappointed in the food quality. It was very average. I cook better Italian dishes at home. The food tasted like things from a can or freezer. I was not impressed at all. I am sad to report because it has been better in the past.

I don't remember the last time I had such a great meal. Nice ambiance. Had the Caprese salad as appetizer which was excellent. I had the filet stuffed with goat cheese and prosciutto. Cooked perfect, tender, absolutely fantastic! Had pasta with marinara as side which was also great. Wife had Fettuccini Alfredo which was light and delicious. Salads were fresh... More

I attended a rehearsal dinner for a family members wedding at this restaurant. Manhattan is located downstairs and can be accessed either by stairs or an elevator. The decor is romantic and the lighting is dimmed. We were seated in a room that doubled as the wine cellar. Our group was offered a chicken, red snapper, or ribeye steak dinner.... More
