Our experience at Manzana is always a great one! Wonderful staff, starting the greeting at the door. Making a reservation is easy on line and your table is always ready for you. They have a great happy hour in the bar as well. The food is always good, with a great variety. It's a great neighborhood place to eat. Weather permitting, dining outdoors is a great experience too. We will return to Manzana for sure!

Great place to meet with friends...
Everything was fine. Had to prompt waitress for water. No real problems.

Outdoor eating at its best
Friday evening at Manzana's in Lake Oswego was perfect. A little too warm but the outdoor shade made it bearable. The waiter was attentive, the plates were prompt and heaping. I'll be back soon.

Delicious pepper coated rib
Delicious pepper coated rib eye steak! Wonderful to sit outside on the patio. Great service!

From the moment we entered
From the moment we entered until we departed it was a special feeling. You are welcomed warmly and that feeling remains through the whole visit. Our server was very gracious and we never felt rushed. She made great suggestions and made sure our beverages were never empty.
The food was fantastic! I would highly recommend the pepper crusted burger with the garlic mayo.
This restaurant is well worth visiting!

Service vs food quality
The food is always good .. but our waiter was less than attentive. My water glass was empty and he forgot to fill it twice when bringing something to a near by table and I had to ask again. When my friend wanted coffee to end her meal, it took over 5 minutes to get someone to find him to get her the coffee. Normally we get good service and good food. That wasn't the case on this visit .. and it wasn't very busy when we were there.

Welcoming as always
We had dinner with my sister who was visiting Oregon for the first time since we relocated here 2 years ago. The hostess greeted us warmly, as always. Only one problem; when they went to seat us on the deck (as requested) that table was already occupied. After a bit of scrambling, we were moved further down from the original spot (which I'd requested via e-mail). The table was "OK" but definitely didn't provide the same view I'd hoped to garner for my sister's visit.
That said, service was good once the waiter made it to our table. And as always, the food was great.

Great outdoor hot spot!
Loved eating outside and watching the fountain and lake activities. Beautiful and great food.

Loved the patio setting. Excellent food and service.

Don't miss this gem!!
The breakfast was fantastic. We shared the shrimp/avacodo omlette and the pecan crusted french toast and it was spectacular! The service was spot on and we never wanted for anything. I highly recommend this restaurant!!!!

We asked for a table for 6 by the window on a Friday night, and it was ready when we arrived. Very nice staff. It was nice experience for our dinner party.

The tortilla soup is to die for! All the food is great and the service outstanding. Keep up the great work.
8/10/2013 5:00:00 PM
You can't miss this gem!!!!
The service today was spectacular! I never felt rushed and my server did all he could to make sure I was not rushed and courses came out spaced to please. The food, what can I say? It is all fantastic. Can't wait for my next visit!!
8/13/2013 5:00:00 PM
If you want to feel like a special guest this is the restaurant for you! From the moment I entered and was greeted warmly by the host staff, to the friendly and personal attention from the server I felt like a valued patron. And the food just puts this restaurant over the top! It was a fantastic experience!!
8/16/2013 5:00:00 PM
Everything was good. The fish tacos were nice and fresh, but could have used some seasoning. The Guac and salsas were good, but not sure if they were house made. Happy Hour Drinks are a GREAT size for a very nice price. Enjoyed the outdoor seating and the very close view of the lake. Our server was also very helpful :)
8/17/2013 12:00:00 AM
Good Food, Good Service
I had a cheeseburger, and it was very good. It was a basic cheeseburger, nothing special added, but a very well made cheeseburger. I do like their other choices better, however. They make many things so much better than anyone else makes them that I'll stick with them and go elsewhere for a fancier cheeseburger next time. You have to try their salmon with pecans or one of their outstanding salads.
8/19/2013 5:00:00 PM
Great Customer Service
The wait staff was so accommodating. I am on a special diet and asked about something for lunch that was not on the menu. Our wait staff was so great in giving me exactly what I needed and I'm so appreciative!
8/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
Perfect Summer Setting
Great dinner served at their outdoor dining setting. The steak salad is fabulous, can't go wrong with the fire roasted chicken, and the chicken tortilla soup is the best. Recommend Manzanna to all my friends and neighbors.
8/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
Our waitress Kate (Cathryn) was outstanding: personal, engaged conversation, genuinely pleasant. I took family who were visiting from California and they commented over and over about the service. Two of my family members ordered sandwiches that were put together with a little of this and hold that etc. She didn't blink, wasn't annoyed. She said, "I can do that." Thank you Kate.
8/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
A real gem!
What else can I say? This restaurant has it all! The greet staff makes you feel welcome, the servers treat you special, the managers visit tables and the food is outstanding!
8/23/2013 5:00:00 PM
Food doesn't disappoint!
I had the seafood bowl for the first time - clams, prawns, chorizo plus more - it was great! My favorite is their hummus, it's wonderful!

Been here many times and it
Been here many times and it never ceases to amaze with the quality of food on the menu.

First time diner absolutely loved
This is a great restaurant for ambiance, food, and quality staff. I am anxious to go again and, perhaps, have dinner. We wanted to sit outside but weather did not permit. It did not take away from a great dining experience.
8/29/2013 12:00:00 AM
We sat in the bar area mainly to get away from a large family with kids in the dining room. Staff was very accommodating and understanding. Once in the bar, our experience was wonderful! Nice ambiance, low noise level and our food and drinks were outstanding including my espresso martini for dessert. Great spot, we will be back.
8/30/2013 12:00:00 AM
The food was Excellent. If
The food was Excellent. If the food wasn't so outstanding it would have been a poor dining experience. Becasue, the service was very slow.

Great Food and Superb Service
The food at Mazana is always GREAT. Last night's visit (*we come often) was even better because we had an amazing server. She was attentive, but not overbearing; friendly, but not obtrusive; and wonderful with the kids. Thanks, Mazana, for hiring such great people! They really make the difference.

Great Outdoor Lunch
Came here specifically to have lunch outside. Manzana is a great place for outdoor dining. They have plenty of tables outside and are staffed accordingly. Our waitress was very nice. She has a nice smile, was prompt and checked in regularly for our iced tea refills. This is important to me, so I always notice. I like their lunch combos. We had the crab artichoke sandwich & salad, and the seafood pasta. Both meals were served promptly, at the right temperature and were very good.
9/10/2013 12:00:00 AM
We were seated immediately and greeted by our server Rebecca with a great smile! She took very good care of us and paced our salad and entree so we did not feel rushed. It was our anniversary and she presented us with the dessert menu so we could choose an anniversary dessert! The food was fabulous and the service fantastic!
9/24/2013 5:00:00 PM
Once again - well cared for!
We had a busy day of errands in Portland but made time to relax & regroup @ Manzana's for brunch last Saturday afternoon. I had their veggie omelet, my husband had their Huevos Rancheros and loved them... Service was terrific. I asked about their dining card as I'd never received mine (it had been 2+ months since I signed up). Before we left, the manager provided me with our very own card... ready to go. As always, a delightful place to eat where all are made to feel welcome, the food is terrific and the ambiance easy on body & mind!
9/27/2013 5:00:00 PM
Isaac was a great waiter!
My friend and I enjoyed our dinner very much. But the meal was enhanced by our very personable and attentive waiter, Isaac. I hope i remember his name correctly, because he deserves praise. Thanks for an enjoyable evening.

Fantastic place for a nice lunch...
The service and food at Manzana are just great. Anne, our server, is a real gem! She paced our food so we did not feel rushed nor did we ever have along wait. She takes time for personal conversation which makes us feel like valued guests! I can't wait to return!
10/4/2013 5:00:00 PM
Saturday Sustainence - Yum!
As usual, Manzana serves their customers great food, outstanding service and comfortable surroundings with graceful ease. We had a delightful breakfast at one of our favorite Portland restaurants with a table by the window, terrific menu selection and prompt service. It's so nice to have a reliable spot to relax and rejuvenate in the middle of running a full day of errands.

Ladies Who Lunch in LO
This is a great place to gather the girls for a lunch or happy hour. Food is good, not great, but the location can't be beat and on a sunny day you can sit on the patio overlooking the lake and who cares what the food's like! Plenty of parking. Really convenient.
10/22/2013 12:00:00 AM
Manzana's "Standard" is SUPERLATIVE
Had another great weekend breakfast at Manzana's during a day filled with errands. We were seated in a quiet spot, feasted on terrific food (as usual) and enjoyed being tucked into a booth. Our waiters were attentive however the main server disappeared for awhile and it took some time before we received our beverages. Other than that, once again, Manzana was "on it's game"...
10/25/2013 5:00:00 PM
Bettery than expected.
The restaurant was slightly hidden but once it was found the interior was very pleasant and inviting. We were seated right away and had very quick service. The menu was short and sweet but had a wide arrange of selections that should fit the taste of many people. We also liked the specials that were available and we selected from those items and were not disappointed.
Overall it was a very excellent and enjoyable experience and we will return.
10/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
The title covers it all! Great food! Fabulous service! Fantastic atmosphere! This restaurant is the whole package so don't miss it!

Wonderful Sunday late breakfast
Our favorite for a late breakfast and before we see a play near by. Wonderful service! Had made a reservation she we got a window table looking out on the lake.
11/9/2013 4:00:00 PM
Service was a 10+
Our services was over-the-top-amazing! We lingered for hours over coffee after our excellent lunch. The waitress was pleasant, accommodating, and so very nice. thank you.
11/10/2013 4:00:00 PM
Always a great meal!
The atmosphere, food and service were outstanding! Can't wait to return!

Fabulous ribs and steaks
Good service and wonderful ribs and steaks full of flavor!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
11/15/2013 4:00:00 PM
Don't miss this gem as it is great!
I took a friend there for the first time and was she ever impressed! From the beautiful decor and atmosphere to the superior service and fantastic tasting food this place has it all! I did have a problem with they way my burger was cooked and it was quickly redone for me. If you get a chance give this great restaurant a try!!
11/20/2013 4:00:00 PM
Although it was my first Thanksgiving that we didn't spend at home, it was very enjoyable! It was nice to have a limited selection for dinner instead of just the standard turkey dinner. Everyone enjoyed their choice, and the portions were generous, but not too much. It was a bit noisy where we sat, to carry on a discussion, but there were a lot of people dining out, so it was to be expected!
11/27/2013 4:00:00 PM
Great Thanksgiving Place
We went here for Thanksgiving, and the food was great, the service was quick and friendly and the ambience was lovely.
11/27/2013 4:00:00 PM
First time here so I decided to go for Thanksgiving since I didn't want to cook for the family. Took my parents out there and we were actually amazed by how fast the sat us down, served us and attended to us. The food was amazing and the service was as well. Totally worth going to again!
11/27/2013 4:00:00 PM
A fine choice in LO
Manzanas serves decent food for suburbanites. Their location is prime in the downtown Lake O area. We recently went w a larger group,including four little ones. Noise level was appropriate for them. Service was very accommodating. We will likely go back due to quality and convenience.
11/28/2013 4:00:00 PM
Fish Tacos TOOOO Spicy!
The only reason I marked the food as GOOD instead of OUTSTANDING is because the fish tacos were too spicy to enjoy. They had to be sent back to the kitchen to be remade. I have ordered this entree in the past and the tacos were mildly spicy with great flavor, but this time, the fish was literally blackened with spice, rendering them inedible. Our party ordered two entreees of the fish tacos and we sent them both back.
However, the beet salad and the rib eye steaks were amazingly good! And, the banana chocolate pie is to die for! Service was excellent, even with respect to the taco problem.
We love Manazana and especially love being able to receive or use our dining credits on our Eat Drink and Earn Card!!

TIME WITH FRIENDS
This was a great place to get together with old friends and catch up. Atmosphere was perfect and the food was great, had a great time. I would recommend this place to anyone.
