I had the salmon with sliced pears and blue cheese. It was great and different. My wife had the fried oysters with saffron rice. Service was the only category that was lacking.

“Wonderful Upgrade from Manzanita Seafood”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 6, 2013

It is not surprising that Manzanita Seafood closed. Apparently others shared our experience. The good news is that Neahkahnie Bistro has replaced them and offers some of the best food in town.

This is a small restaurant and the ingredients and preparation are first rate. It is not cheap and it is not fast food. This is a place to eat when you have some time and want to talk about and savor your food. It is family owned and operated and the staff is well-trained. You can modify just about anything on the menu and talk directly to the chef.

It was fairly new and not crowded when we went. The restaurant and kitchen are appropriately sized and I would not expect them to ever get overwhelmed. The do order fresh and local and can run out of a dish by the end of the evening. That was not our experience, but I could see it happening as some of their dishes require a lot of prep time ahead of being ordered.

I plan to go again on a future visit to Manzanita. It is a nice upscale change at the beach.

“Great service and wonderful food.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 30, 2013

We stopped for lunch and enjoyed homemade mac & cheese and a delicious sandwich. Adding their freshly brewed iced tea...we only wished we had more time to go back for dinner. Their dinner menu looked great.

“Superb catering”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 27, 2013

If you're planning a destination wedding in Manzanita, be sure to check out this option! Lynne & her staff were professional, enthusiastic and prepared a wonderful wedding day breakfast (fabulous Eggs Bennie & French Toast with almond milk). They then turned around that evening to serve marinated salmon, chicken, and quinoa with roasted veggies, complete with bar duties as well - for about 80 people. It was wonderful to be served delicious, healthy food!

This is a new addition to the food scene in Manzanita and we were hopeful for a tasty new spot in town...Sadly, Neahkahnie Bistro is not that. The food is not particularly good and there are other spots that offer much better choices.
