    This place stays in business because of regulars that have gone there forever. I counted only 4 other people under age 65. The garden salad was fresh, the Sesame Crusted Tuna was cooked properly but the Wasabi Soy sauce was strange. My Japanese friend was taken aback when they brought it to the table. The Wasabi was in the Soy sauce and neither were very good. The Crab Cakes were very good and the Sirloin was good. My steak came with hand cut potatoes that ranged from being overcooked to not cooked enough. Service was mediocre. It took 10 mins after being seated for a waitress (longer for the basket of bread), she never introduced herself and didn't ask if we had any questions. Didn't like the 18% tip being included in the bill.

    Delicious! Although the crowd is a bit aged, but that's not a bad thing, just something we weren't expecting. Great crab cakes!! We used a deal that gave us ~$70 worth of food for $32, which meant that we had a three-course meal, and the staff were very patient with us and brought everything out/cleaned up in a reasonably timely manner.

    I love flavor and service and they were great at both. The prices were great and you get a discount for paying cash. I had risotto and it was delicious. I also left a bag there and they found it and saved it for me. I'll be back soon cause they have creme brulee and I was to full. The great thing is that the chef knew it wouldn't travel well. So I'll be back and I bought a group on for it.

    DELICIOUS FOOD! I was pleasantly surprised by how good the grilled salmon was. Pot sticker appetizers were delicious and the bourbon-pecan tart was also good. Waitress was very sweet and accommodating. Ambiance is laid-back - not fancy at all. Recommended if you're looking for delicious food and a relaxing night.

    The food is really good and the prices are very affordable- they just need to step up to the service ratings. We are a regular here and leave 20+ tip but the service is always an issue. You have to ask for water- you have to ask for additional glass of wine- you even have to remind them that you do not have silverware AFTER your food arrives and if you want more bread........you will be waiting. But nice people here and the food is more than decent.

    This was the worst new menu offering I've seen in a long time. The dining room used to be packed now because of the change of menu, there is really nothing worth going back for. Service is spotty and the food left a lot to be desired. Sorry Mumbles, you killed a good thing.

    This is a reasonably priced restaurant with a charming ambience and accessible menu. The fare is bistro-like, with tasty sauces and light spices, a variety of meat/pultry/fish, and perfect portion sizes. We went with a group of four and enjoyed the service, the food, and the ability to talk easily.

    We've been going to Mumbles for years. It's our go to place when we want a nice meal in the neighborhood. The service is friendly and the food is quite good. The portions, for us, are large so we always take home half, which makes their prices extremely reasonable. We also eat here when we have company with a large mix of tastes as there is something for everyone on their menu.

    Mumbles has been where we've celebrated birthdays & anniversaries ever since establishing itself at 17th & 3rd, formerly the Manhattan Grill which is where we first dated over 26 years ago. Mumbles never fails to meet our expectations and its fare is excellent at reasonable prices. A special reward for loyal customers, Mumbles invites you to celebrate your birthday annually with a free dinner, making it inviting to have a quiet meal with that special someone, or have a festive celebration with friends in a group setting. Always a pleasure! AAA+++

    Disappointing is the best I can offer. Hadn't eaten here for years due to a bad experience with their food. A couple of months ago we picked up a dinner 'deal' and decided to give it another shot. Surprise - the service was good, as was the food. What one would expect in this type of restaurant. This time around they again fell far short. My food was barely warm when brought to the table. I sent my steak back to put back on the grill for a couple of minutes. Their cook took the short cut- shoved the entire plate under the broiler. My dinner partner's meal was also mediocre - at best. Much of her meal was left on the plate. It's unfortunate- we live in the neighborhood and would be regulars if only their food was at par.

    Mumbles is among the most consistent 'best bets' for great comfort food. My brothers and I took our parents there for a casual dinner for their anniversary. You really can't go wrong with anything on the menu. I definitely recommend the meat loaf, especially on a cold winter night. Burgers are also great, and they've had some very good chicken dishes.

    The food at Mumbles was surprisingly good for what I expected; the portions were large and the food, while nothing special, was consistent and enjoyable. The atmosphere reminded me of a suburban chain restaurant, which is the reason I won't be going back. There are too many restaurants in New York that are special to repeat a restaurant that isn't.
