Diner Reviews
  • "Only 2 menu items for vegetarians. both items are only mediocre. Large helpings and huge bakery items."

  • "Always try to get to Manhattan in the Desert at least once when I'm in Palm Springs. Definitely a favorite for me and for my friends."

  • "The MOST notable thing that happened was that we made a reservation about a half a hour before arriving as it was Saturday morning and they had availability. When we arrived, there were several groups ahead of us. After checking everyone in - about a minute - we were immediately ushered to our table ahead of the parties walking in. I was incredibly impressed as we could have had to wait until the non-reserved queue was seated and the 'choice' table were all taken. Here a reservation is STILL a reservation. All other aspects were VERY GOOD but this stood out."

  • "The gravy on turkey and potatoes was like glue, dressing was very dry and not very hot. The turkey was tasty though.. My husband loved his ribs. Soup was just so so. Saying that, the deli-style food that was served at another table looked really good. Should have ordered a deli sandwich. May try again for lunch, definitely not supper place."

  • "Never had a bad experience at Manhattan's. The food is great, plus a wide variety AND breakfast is served all day."

  • "Eggs Benedict were outstanding...it's the additional lemon squeeze in the hollandaise sauce, The pastry display was unbelievable as was the tantalizing taste of the chocolate cake. This is a favorite spot, especially to bring out of town guests."

  • "we had a large party of 12. the place was busy but the food and service were good and the prices are reasonable. we went back another time with a smaller party of 7 and it was just as good."

  • "Opening reservations made it easy to book and head over for dinner. Opted for the Valentines day dinner for two Each entree was fresh and nicely presented. The service was kind and attentive and the price was very reasonable."

  • "No matter what time of day we go, there is always something delicious on the menu to "hit the spot". If you become a "regular", staff will greet you like an old friend and remember your favorites."

  • "I think this restaurant is a better breakfast, lunch or brunch place serving traditional deli food. Had a problem with my dinner and they were so nice to correct it and then gave me a bag of rugalach which were delicious, being able o taste the butter and cream cheese in the cookie. Will try it again during the day rather than dinner."

  • "Once inside Manhattan in the Desert, the diner forgets the hassle of parking. Our group of three finally gave up and parked near Walgreens in the Smoke Tree Center and walked to the deli. Being able to make a reservation is a plus, but I need to get a better sense of the hours that parking in Manhattan's lot is possible. Wonderful food, fast/efficient service, pleasant (albeit a bit noisy) atmosphere. Obviously a Palm Springs favorite. Perhaps mid summer rather than "in season" would be a better time as far as parking is concerned. I will be a return customer."

  • "Normally this restaurant would get a great rating. But we went to celebrate a once in a lifetime holiday and were hoping to to try some special items, the Jewish Dinner ps weren't even available until 4pm and the Thanksgiving dinner was very bland. The pumpkin pie was awful. The server forgot the rolls and butter and packed us 3 slices of rye bread to take home. We were a party of four. The only good item on my plate were the fresh steamed veggies. The server was not friendly and pretty much just through the food on our table and avoided us. So much for trying to have a cultural food experience."

  • "I ordered my eggs over medium but delivered to the table the whites were runny and I think that is over easy. Everything else was good and the service is always good. We sat on the patio and it was a treat."

  • "Today we were here for breakfast. Bacon, mushroom, cheddar omelette was delicious, very full of ingredients. The food is always good, generous portions, friendly service."

  • "We were surprised how much food for the price and everything was very good!!! We'll definitly go back!!!"
    Dined on 10/28/2013
  • "Although the value was fantastic the quantity of food was way too much. The sandwiches were too big to even hold in your hand without making a mess. I had to take mine apart and eat the inside with knife & fork and skip the roll. Two of my friends ordered breakfast which was the right amount and really good. Overall we'll be back but I'll be prepared. The quality of the food was great. Service was good. Price was right."

  • "I wasn't expecting the Royal Treatment, but having my entree brought out before I was finished with my Soup was a bit much. The food overall was good, the price was fair and the portions more that needed. I believe Manhattans is a cute little place to have comfort food and for Seniors, it is a GREAT place to stretch the dollar. I wouldn't mind coming back but would not make it a daily/weekly night out"

  • "I was looking forward to the bacon, mushroom, cheese omlette. I've had it before and it was stuffed full and very tasty. This time that was not the case at all. There was still lots of cheese on top! :-) My friends pancakes were just ok as well. I'm sure it was an off day and we will be back. Service was efficient and friendly."
