On an overnight stay in Lufkin, we followed a recommendation to have dinner at Manhattan. After the initial surprise at finding so elegant a restaurant in the basement of the Perry Building, we proceeded to experience a warm welcome and impeccable surroundings for a quiet dining experience. The 'swing style' background music was perfect for us, and we enjoyed excellent... More

For a Italian restaurant I had to try the Kobe beef hamburger. It was awesome and also good atmosphere too. I will come back for the Italian food next time. Highly recommend this restaurant.

A quiet restaurant in the basement of an old historic business building in downtown Lufkin. Inclusive of a bar it is arranged with tables and a private room, I believe. The food is very good, the prices are moderate (I've always been a guest of someone so I've never looked at prices), and the owner is very friendly and makes... More

Great menu, super good service, and the food and drink is always nice. Interesting location in the old Perry Building employees cafeteria below street level. Eat there 4 or 5 times each year. Any special occasion dining, that's the place to go.

Went to Manhattan last night. Best filet mignon I have had in a LONG time. I think my entree was filet Oscar. Bacon wrapped asparagus wonderful. I like my steak well done and few can cook a filet well as perfectly as it was prepared. My date had steak Diane which was a filet as well. Exceptional service. Plan to... More

Me and my husband were looking for a romantic place to go for our 30 anniversary and I found this place on Yelp, it's downtown which I wasn't to familiar with but when I found out it's in a basement I was interested to say the least. As you can image it is rather dark but that only sets the... More

Wonderful pasta dinners. We each had a different dish and everyone enjoyed them immensely. We started with stuffed mushrooms and finished with tiramisu. Wine list had good choices and reasonable prices.

Visited the other night with a group. The salads were fresh and good, the service was good; however, the kitchen screwed up the sides on every order. They tried to make it right by providing extra sides on the table which really helped.

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.
