Food was Delicious

This is a nice small restaurant near Rittenhouse Square. Pretty inside and food was very good. Biggest complaint was how loud it was. Even though we had a corner table by the windows, it was still very hard to hear our friends and the waiter. The short ribs were great with mashed potatoes and the... read more

Twenty Manning was great. If you are a foodie this is the place for you. The menu had really great, different fare and the dining area was bright and pleasant. You got a farm to table feel and the waitstaff was on the ball. We didn't experience the loud volume that others did, but I have noticed in the "newer"... More

Twenty Manning is clearly a popular local spot, judging from the crowds that kept piling in. I would definitely recommend making a reservation. The menu was nicely varied and we all enjoyed our meals. The food did take a while, and the acoustics are not great, as we really had to raise our voices to have a conversation, which was... More

This restaurant is loud! Our table was very small and very close to the next. Food was better than average but not special or spectacular. Scallops were a bit over marinated and then overcooked.

We didn't know this restaurant, but we went with some friends that did, and they booked for all of us. We had a very nice dinner, the menu offered meat and fish, veggies were really fresh and everything we had was delicious. The service was also very good, they were also really helpful with some food allergies. I surely recommend... More

I've been going here for years but am finally writing a review. Went again last night and the service, food and cocktails were amazing. Both vegetarians and non-vegetarians have plenty of choices. They cook food to order, handle substitutions without any problem and the bartending staff is second to none. I love this place!

Glad I'd just read about this place before a last-minute visit to Philly. While the place is smallish and loud, the food was incredible. It was hard to choose an entree, with all of the delicious options. I went with the Kennett Square Mushroom Ravioli as a shout-out to my current hometown. Funny thing is I'm not even a mushroom...

Had dinner over the weekend with another couple at Twenty Manning. The restaurant is very small and cozy. You weren't on top of another table but it did make for a high noise level. I definitely had to shout at my friends for them to hear me. We still had a good meal and can overlook the noise as this... More

My escargot had a brown sweet sauce that hid their flavor. The hanger steak was good as were the shoestring french fries. However, the noise level was so high we could not hear each other. My ears hurt for one hour after I left the restaurant.
