Manhattan Grill is situated over 2 floors and allows private use of the second floor with a separate bar; a large terrace for al fresco dining is available throughout the summer. A succulent range of premium steaks from around the world are served up at Manhattan Grill - from wet-aged USDA prime Black Angus from Creekstone Kansas to dry-aged Scottish cuts from Inverurie, the birthplace of the legendary Aberdeen Angus steak. The open plan theatre-style kitchen allows for views of the chefs cooking each mouth-watering steak on the authentic Montague Broiler.

I went there for a family dinner on a Friday evening and although we were there quite late there was still a nice vibe and atmosphere.
We had some starters to share and they were all good but a special mention goes to the scallops and the crab cake.
We also shared five types of cuts as we wanted to try as many of them and feel the difference between the American and Scottish beef.
We had the USDA Fillet , NY strip, Rib-eye bone in, Scottish Fillet and T-bone.
All of them were cooked to our taste.
We had white wine and red wine, a special mention to the MALBEC we had.
Good service and I liked to see the chefs cooking our meat thanks to the open kitchen.

I shall be back soon...

We were attending the nearby Hotelympia exhibition at Excel, because of the tube strike we were looking for a nearby steakhouse and came across the Manhattan Grill. Once we found out that it was in a hotel we were a little apprehensive as generally chain hotel restaurants aren't the best.

Upon arriving we were greeted by our waiter Nicholas, who was excellent - great recommendations for both food and matching wine.

Scallops to start - well cooked, not too overdone.
Rib eye steaks - one cooked perfectly, one a little over ( in all fairness Nicholas asked us to check the cooking of the steak before we started and would willingly replace it if not happy)but this didn't affect the taste which was fantastic - lovely pieces of meat.

The wine that he recommended was a perfect match for the rib eye.

No atmosphere really, with only another 3 tables with customers, but was good to see the open kitchen and chefs working on our food.

Overall a good meal at a reasonable price, excellent service but not much atmosphere.

What makes this place special is its people - the service was really outstanding yet not pressurising... the waiter is very knowledgeable on the menu of food and makes great recommendation when I was there. Very attentive and relaxed approach makes one very comfortable and enjoyable meal.

The steak was done to perfection with good sauce. The starter of prawn was well seasons (although I had a huge rock salt on one of my salad leaves) but over all it was really tasty. I've ordered the orange juice with lemonade, it was not the best one I've tested though.

Nice staff. Good chef. Nice wines. I gave 4 stars instead of 5 because my medium rare steak was a little bit over cooked, I would say medium.

Lovely atmosphere. Found set menu special on their website. Offered from 5-7pm. We arrived just before 7pm & they honoured the special. Meal was 3 course deal with glass of Prosecco. Given 2 choices for each course. Waiter explained every option before we ordered. Everything was absolutely delicious. Had ribeye steak & waiter had us cut into it before he left to make sure it was cooked properly. Nothing was rushed. Waiter chatted with us about the area between courses. Incredible value for the meal we got. Could have charged much more & it still would have been excellent.
