    The chicken tortilla soup is the BEST! The rotisserie chicken dinner is always a favorite for us. Would recommend Manzanna to everyone!

    This was a big disappointment. The noise was unbearable, the service was mediocre at best and the food was just not up to par. We went early in the dinner hour and were expecting a high quality moderately priced meal. The habanero infused drink had no kick, my husbands pasta was long on pasta and short on shrimp. My "fish & chips" was not "fish & chips" it was crusted cod. Overall this was not the experience I had planned and we will not be back.

    Located on the shores of Lake Oswego, Manzana delivers on fine food and fantastic view. Second time at this gem and they delivered on food, service and atmosphere. I had the rotisserie chicken while the adult kids had the prime rib sandwich. The rotisserie chicken was moist and full of flavor and what I heard was the prime rib sandwich was one of the best they ever had. We gave the guacamole another chance and they delivered this time. This is a fantastic restaurant and worth the visit when you are in the Portland area.

    We used to come to Manzana quite a bit but this last experience was pretty bad. Not a lot of passion either in the food or the service. If you're going to charge $28 for a salmon special course, please give me something more than a token portion that I could finish in a few bites. And a french dip sandwich at $17 when frankly, I could have gone to Arby's and gotten something tastier, was also disappointing. If you're willing to pay these kind of prices, I would suggest the Oswego Grill instead of Manzana. Ambience is nice though.

    We celebrated a birthday at an outdoor table, with great views of the lake and attendant people watching. Our waitress was wonderful - gave the four of us time to catch up and was great about a couple of substitutions we needed and even brought a wonderful berry cobbler on the house to celebrate. Very nice long lunch!

    Our server was the real gem of the evening; everything else paled in comparison. When we arrived for our reservation, 3 greeters stood with their backs to us (and some other diners) for several moments, consulting the computerized seating layout before anyone acknowledged our presence. Finally, one of them turned around & looked at us as though she couldn't figure out why we were there. We were told our table would be ready shortly. There was a mix-up with our appetizer, & when it did finally arrive, it was undercooked, dry & very stringy, not as good as it has been on other occasions. Dinner arrived within moments so the appetizer was pushed to the side for later. Our entrees were excellent but Stephani made it all worthwhile.

    Was very happy with the service, Matthew was awesome! the food was delicious, and the views very relaxing. The only negative, was that dogs were allowed around the tables and a rather large dog that was at the next table kept licking my husbands hand, as well as trying to get our food, the owner was not paying attention to her dog. Didn't help that my son-in-law is allergic to dogs. we are talking adults that were in their 50-60's that should have known better! we would never think of bringing our dog to a restaurant! Would it stop me from returning to this restaurant-no, we had a great time despite the dog incident. It was a great evening to sit outside and relax with good food!the menu was terrific with lots of options for us all.

    I had high hopes for Manzana but I think my wife said it best, "if Denny's went upscale." And, as she said that comment I looked around and agreed. Not that it is bad but I think it is more for the tourist wanting to hang out at Lake Oswego. The food was a bit pricey and the menu bland like if you were ordering off the Denny dinner menu. I would much rather go up the street to the sister property, Stanford's, where I think you get better ambience, service and flavor.

    We celebrated my parents anniversary at Manzana, and had a very pleasant experience. The host stand/entrance was a bit awkward and seemingly disorganized. Having been in the service industry for decades, I find the layout of the lobby, having the computer terminal against the wall, with the staff needing to turn their back to you to confirm or check on reservations seemed unwelcoming. After that though we had a wonderful time. Our server was excellent, and the food was promptly delivered and delicious. I have had less than positive experiences here in the past, so this was great. Thank you.

    Food was good but a bit more expensive for dinner than other similar places. Our server was really good. Very attentive but not interruptive. He timed the main coarse after the appetizer with appropriate timing in between. I had the mahi mahi with polenta and it was good. The fish tacos were good as well. All in all I would go back and recommend to others in the area. We sat inside but the outdoor seating looked good.

    From the time Manzana opened, my friends and family have loved it. My parents would have lunch there at least once a week, I'd meet friends there for happy hour at least twice a month, and my daughters and I would find ourselves enjoying dinner there quite frequently. The view of the river is lovely, so if you're from out of town, ask to be seated on the lower level so you may be closer to the water. When weather permits, I'd strongly recommend sitting outdoors, especially for lunch. The setting is comfortable, it's dog friendly, and depending upon where you are seated, you may have a view of the Lake. From the outdoor area, you can walk right into Millennium Park, walk downstairs to watch children running through fountains, feed the ducks, or just take in the beauty of it all and take a walk along the lake. If you walk in the other direction, you can sit on benches located right in front of the docks. There is a movie theater next door, along with a variety of shops, a wonderful French bakery and frozen yogurt store back up on the restaurant level. The prices are reasonable, and you can't beat the happy hour menu in the bar. If you're local, it's worth your while to ask for a restaurant card on which you can accumulate points for future dining. At first I was skeptical, but it's not a credit card, there's no annual fee, and no expiration date on points. Manzana is known for it's chicken tortilla soup, which has been a family favorite. The Ahi appetizer is also delicious, and the roasted chicken and salmon entrees are fantastic. Servers are fast, friendly, and you'll see a lot of smiling faces. The restaurant is fairly easy to find, and you never have to worry about finding a place to park. My only regret is that I no longer live in the area. However, whenever I do visit Oregon, I make a point of finding my way to Manzana, no matter how short the duration of my trip.
