Great Austin food.
This place is a must do in Austin. Everything was perfect, starting with the window booth and the wonderful margaritas, flavorful chips and salsa and tasty entress. Don't miss it.

My family and I ate here and it was good food and great service. Our server was prompt and responsive. I recommend it to anyone wanting to eat modern Mexican food.

I went to this restaurant specifically to try their chicken tortilla soup with someone who remembered it as being a personal favorite. Our server was most helpful; pointing out that the version we wanted was actually different than the one we started to order. We also ordered salads that were presented in tower form worthy of a photograph. Live music was playing at sunday brunch/lunch. Great for ambience in a downtown setting. Highly recommended!

Always A Go To Spot Time After Time
Had a mini-reunion with cousins here - the waiter was awesome - bringing our drinks and food, every bit of it tasty - queso - unique and authentic was as usual - delicious; my rellenos en nogada were awesome - others enjoyed soup with poblanos, tuna ceviche, and other delectables - we find consistency here, even though we are not in Austin but about every six months - have been eating here for years and find it great - service, atmosphere, and of course the food!

Sunday Jazz Brunch
Our early arrival at 10:45 put us ahead of the jazz band, which starts at 11:30. We had wonderful service, and were not rushed. They understood we wanted to listen to the music. It was not very busy while we ate, which was nice. Our breakfast selections were off the brunch menu & everything was delicious! Our group of five had the omelette, the venison chorizo with eggs, the egg/tortilla/ham/pea combo & pork/egg/tortilla/bean combo. (Sorry, Manuel's website is down & I can't remember exact names of dishes) the dessert Vanilla Parfait was incredible, chocolate bread pudding was OK. Overall, casual atmosphere, nice food, good service & good jazz band. We would return for dinner or a special occasion brunch.

First visit in over a year
I was pleasantly surprised that we could get a table on short notice via Open Table at Manuels downtown. I was even more surprised when all six in our party was delighted in their dinner choices. The grilled flautas that I had were excellent. A nice choice if you don't want deep fried food. Parking downtown is always a bit of an issue but that goes with the territory. I'll definitely go back more often.

Fun downtown hotspot
We had a great time with 4 other friends at Manuels. The margaritas were delicious, and they have some fresh seafood items on the menu. My husband's tuna steak was a little over-done for his liking, and the waitress seemed confused when he told her to just sear it. Other than that, everything was good, timely, and friendly.

Lighting was too bright with overhead lighting but we LOVED the meal and service was top notch!

The food was very tasty, but I was surprised how small the large guacamole dish was. Awesome mole sauce, but the chicken in the tortillas was room temperature. Margaritas were good, but small. Overall, a little pricey.

Great food right on the main drag
We were there during the F1 weekend and the food was fantastic. We would go back next time we are in town. Good service and atmosphere.

Austin during F-1 2013
Made reservations for a Sat night during Formula 1 week and I'm glad we did as Manuel's was packed out to the walls. Interesting Mexican food that was elegantly presented. Good hostess and waiter. We thoroughly enjoyed our dinner at Manuel's. Try it. You'll like it, too.

One of our favorites but
the food did not shine this particular evening. Great service, excellent drinks.

The food was good, the service
The food was good, the service was good but a little slow. A couple of the meals were improperly prepared, but the server handled it as quickly as he could.
