Description: Manhattan of La Jolla transports you to the best of New York via the cozy, upscale village of La Jolla. Located in the Empress Hotel on Fay Avenue, it is an elegant, casual and classy place where you would expect to see Old Blue Eyes or Danny Ocean romancing a beautiful woman while she sips her Cosmo over dinner. With quality Italian charm, Manhattan offers classic cocktails that get you into that New York swing--and the entrees are as good as it gets. Liberal olive oil, garlic, lemon and pepper complement the Zagat Award winning veal chop, steaks and seafood. Signature scampi, classic cannelloni, pasta al dente, and other succulent dishes, plus professional service and decor make this a terrific spot for a romantic dinner or mixing business and pleasure. Manhattan in La Jolla gets you the best of both worlds. Manhattan is an award winning La Jolla favorite, celebrating its 25th year.

In LaJolla for conference we went to Manhattan with 16 people and every one of us raved about the food and excellent selection of wine. Wonderful veal dishes and sinful desserts. Manhattan has a "Sinatra Rat-Pack" atmosphere with attentive waiters in tuxedos and even one who sang Italian love songs to us. I could see it would be a romantic place to take a date. We ate at several other restaurants in La Jolla, but this was the best!!

If you like fried mozarella then this place is for you. The bar area is very relaxed and fun to eat in, though this place never seems to be that full. A New York sort of feel, though it is right in the heart of La Jolla.
