I've been to Manderes several times, both at their older (very small) location and to where they're at now (bigger) and have never had anything but a great meal. The great food, atmosphere, and service make it one of my favorite Sacramento area restaurants.

No matter what you order, whether it's meat, fish, risotto, or pasta; you can be certain that it will be a creative dish that makes you want to try something new every time because you know it will be incredible.

Everything is fresh, hot, flavorful, and delicious. The servers are knowledgeable, attentive, and extremely accommodating and professional. It is not inexpensive, but very reasonable considering the quality.

Manderes gets it right on all fronts.

We are here from Michigan visiting our kids who are new to the area. Based on many good reviews we headed over to Maneres after calling first (last minute) to make sure there was a table to fit the six of us on a busy Saturday night. The Staff was very friendly right from the start and were able to hold and accommodate us at the perfect table. The place was packed and lively, which made it fun. Our Server was helpful with all our questions on the menu plus describing the specials. It was very hard to select what to eat because there were so many items that sounded great. In the end, we were all pleased with our selections (ribs, ahi tuna, steak kabobs, Korean Grill, and spaghetti made just for the little kids). The portions are large and the presentation for each dish was real nice. Manderes' Manager stopped by our table to check on us and all the Staff were very friendly and helpful plus they seemed like they loved their job and had real concern to make sure our experience was pleasant. I agree with other Reviews in recommending this restaurant and only wished we lived here so we could become frequent diners! Thanks, Manderes, for a great evening. The only comment to help others would be if you want a quiet, intimate setting, this might not be the place you had in mind. For example, we had a fussy, crying baby and I don't think other tables even noticed due to the lively environment.

It does not matter if i come here for lunch or dinner, this place is always fantastic! There is nothing on the menu that isn't great! My favorites however are:
Appetizer-Anything on the appetizer course is great, i have had it all.
The house salad with ranch is another thing i order before dinner. They really spice what could be a really plain salad up to a level where i eat it all.
Main course-the tiger shrimp. Comes with rice and veggies with a white wine and butter sauce. Can't get enough.
Dessert-xango. deep fried cheesecake tubes with vanilla ice cream, layered with caramel and dusted with sugar and cinnamon! To die for!!

Whenever we want to go out for Happy Hour, Manderes always come to mind first. The staff are very friendly, the service is always excellent and it's a great place to relax.

On Monday,Tuesday and Wed they have $1 tacos. The tacos are hard to beat, especially the shrimp tacos. Along with the wide assortment of hand-crafted beer choices, they also have an excellent selection of wine choices.

We have yet to have dinner at Manderes but if it anything like their lunch menu, you can't go wrong. Their cheeseburger and ribs are delicious!!!
