Don't sit next to a large group!
Groupon made it a super value. Food was pretty good but could have been more aggressively seasoned. Service was great; not the case with our prior visit. Keep hiring good people! Hardwood surfaces everywhere make acoustics a challenge.

Everything was amazing. However,
Everything was amazing. However, I told the hostess that I had a groupon, she told me to wait at the end of the meal to give it to our waitress. When I gave it after our meal she said what we picked didnt fit for my groupon deal. I was mislead on my instructions and didnt enjoy that I couldn't redeem my groupon. The food was fantastic and planning on coming again.

The food was great. They seemed a little understaffed, our server was difficult to track down. She was, however, professional and knowledgeable when she was around. The hostess more than made up for it. She was amazing.

This was a great date-night restaurant. My date and I both agreed that the food was some of the best we've had ever, trumping a french restaurant in Waikiki. The steak and buttermilk fried chicken were both delicious, and cooked perfectly! This would be a recommended restaurant for ANYONE that is looking for a great treat.

Manhattan offers a spin on steak
We thoroughly enjoyed our meal at Manhattan Seattle. The menu has an eclectic offering of traditional steak fair with a cajun flair. The prices were very reasonable. And, the grits were honestly some of the best I've ever had (this is coming from a southern girl at heart). My husband and I split a wedge salad and each ordered steaks. He ordered the strip and I had a filet with cajun shrimp that was outstanding. We shared a rootbeer float for dessert. The entrees come with two sides, which was a nice bonus. If you are looking for a good steak dinner that is reasonably priced, I highly recommend it.

Innovative Food and Great Service
The menu choices are quite innovative. Their house 'Manhatten' cocktail was a treat. Nice house wine, too. Wings appetizer had a nice blend of spices. Had a buttermilk fried chicken served on brussel sprouts and their unique mac and cheese. It was delicious. Partner enjoyed perfectly prepared flat iron steak. The service and attention to detail was terrific. We'll be back.

Missed the Mark
So this is probably the 3rd time here and each time it get's a little better, but it still missed the mark for me. My companion's meal was excellent. Mine however was overboard on the pepper. The server was pretty good and the wine was excellent.
6/29/2013 12:00:00 AM
When our server mentioned they had one of the best burgers in town, she wasn't kidding. The bun to patty ratio was perfect, the sauce added just the right amount of flavor without being too overbearing. And the fried pickles were also some of the best I've ever had. They may have been a breaded a little too much but the pickles were still crisp enough to not be soggy and limp and not swimming in oil.
6/29/2013 12:00:00 AM
We went in with a group of seven which later became eight. Some people had entrees, some a mixture of small plates. Drinks ranged from water to beer to cocktails, all of which were delicious, but the more important thing was that the drinks and food came out in such a way that we all got to eat together. That's a rare thing. Our waitress was friendly, helpful, and charming throughout, and we were there for a pretty long time. The food was amazing. No one was disappointed, and we all ordered different dishes. I'll definitely go back to try some of the things that I only got a taste of this time.
7/3/2013 12:00:00 AM
They have awesome food! I really love their manhattan burger, pork belly tacos, and their shrimp with white cheddar grits. Their happy hour deals are awesome and definitely are a good bargain! You can easily order a few items, split them with your date and have a tasty dinner for about $35! And the candle light gives the place a nice ambient lighting. I wouldn't suggest buying their margarita they put a TON of triple sec in it and it hits hard on the first drink. But other than that they are a really good place for having a nice, relaxing and romantic date!
7/12/2013 12:00:00 AM
Fun place with great food
Lots of options on the menu to satisfy a variety of tastes. The steak & scallops were amazing and just the right portion size. The Manhatten was also worthy of naming the place. Great bartender!
7/19/2013 12:00:00 AM
The steak was unbelievable. Everything we eat was awesome. And the service was perfect.

Good Non-Generic Steakhouse on Hill
The bar has always been great, with excellent service and tasty and well-priced (esp. at happy hour) bar-food. The restaurant, though, did not know what it wanted to be, though, and never really justified the higher-end prices. My recent dinner there with two colleagues showed a kitchen that plainly knew what it was doing, and a steakhouse menu with a nicely southern take on classic dishes. I had the filet with collard greens, and shrimp and grits and it was great. The waitress was fantastic too. There are quite a few seafood options on the entree too, with one of my guests having had salmon and the other a seafood fricassee. Bottles of wine were half-off but not really a bargain at even half off.
8/6/2013 12:00:00 AM
Exactly what I was hoping for
The food was fantastic as I expected and the service was great. I'd definitely come here again the next time I'm in Seattle.
8/10/2013 12:00:00 AM
All the food was good. Manhattan steak bites had a bit too much ginger soy sauce but was still very tasty! We went on a Monday night so there weren't a lot of people, Happy Hour all day Monday's, drinks were strong. The ladies serviing us were nice. A little dark in the restaurant for me, and the seating was a bit awkward for only 2 people and considering I made reservations in advance I'd think we would have had one of the 2 people tables reserved for us, but it wasn't a big deal.
8/12/2013 12:00:00 AM
We live quite pretty far from restaurant, totally worth it!
8/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
Varied menu. Food was well prepared and nicely presented. Overall great value!

Great restaurant in Capitol Hill!
This was our first visit to Manhattan Seattle and we had a great meal with friends. The service was outstanding and the menu was very interesting and each of the items we selected were great. We'll definitely be back!

Capital Hill Charm
What an excellent find on Capital Hill. It was a nice summer evening so they had their huge window open & we enjoyed the characters walking around outside. Service was good, however near the end of the meal another server not our waitress, showed up and removed our ice tea glasses and never came back. We thought that was a little rude since we weren't done yet. The food was excellent, ahi was perfectly seared and sauce was delicious without being sweet.
I had crab encrusted salmon which was very yummy and the asparagus was everything you want asparagus to be. My sister had the Seafood fricasee and it was really spectacular. Salmon, Scallops and shrimp- all done very well. We were quite pleased to find that a steakhouse did seafood so well.

Awesome food! Awesome service! Awesome bartenders!

First time dining at this
First time dining at this entry on my list of 'must try' restaurants. Pleasantly surprised by the attentive service and delicious food. I had the surf & turf which was really reasonably priced at $39. This combo is often offered with sub-par lobster or a cheap cut of steak, but the quality was excellent on both. True, the portions were small but given how big restaurant portions have gotten, an appropriately-sized steak was welcome, particularly since it was of such high quality. We're big John Howie Steak fans and have been spoiled by the beef there. The fillet at Manhattan was the best steak I've had outside of JHS! Lobster was sweet & tender, veggies tasty. Salmon & ribs were also highly-rated by my fellow diners as were cocktails.

Good Food, Interesting Place
I chose this restaurant because the Open Table report suggested parking was available. Not so, it is on street as far as I could tell. We parked a block and a half away. The restaurant is hard to spot from the car. The address is correct.
The food was great for this brunch arranged the day before on the Open Table service. I have a hearing loss with hearing aids that don't quite return me to normal, so any restaurant is going to be a challenge. It may have been quieter for someone with perfect hearing and no machines amplifying the noise.
Service was good, but I thought the wait time for the food a little long, but we may have just been hungry.
My guests all commented on how they liked the place.

We were seated in a booth
We were seated in a booth which is our preference and our server was excellent. We each had a martini and then spit a second.I had the St Louis ribs which came with collard greens and cornbread, I loved it. My husband had the fried chicken which came with cheese grits and he enjoyed it. We didn't feel rushed and noticed that everyone enjoyed working there. We just wished parking was a little more convenient.The back ground music was enjoyable. We would return.
9/4/2013 12:00:00 AM
Stop by for dinner one night and had a great expwrience. Then just this week decided to try their happy hour. My experience was great. My friends really enjoyed the food. Everything we ordered tasted amazing! Our server Ciara was very friendly and was great. The live music that was playing was awesome. Definitely coming back! Highly recommended!
9/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
Taste, Taste, Taste
The scallops, garlic mashed potatoes and green beans stole the dish. Very, very Tasty. The blackened crust on the steak was delicious, too, but I expected a little more flavor from the meat itself - especially for filet mignon. The interior has a great aesthetic and the server was perfect. Her recommendations were spot on and she let us take our time to enjoy the meal. Great ambiance.

Seatle Restaurant Week Visit
My boyfriend and I met a couple friends for lunch on Sunday. We had made the reservation in hopes of trying out the $15 lunch menu advertised on Seattle Restaurant Week. Unfortunately the waitress told us that the menu does not apply to Sundays, which I did not see listed on the SRW or Manhattan website. Despite this disappointment, we all had a great time and enjoyed eating brunch. The brunch we had tasted great, prices were reasonable and the staff was friendly. We'll definitely go again to try out lunch and dinner another time. Thank you!

The customizable macaroni
The customizable macaroni and cheese is really good: an alternative to the usual heavy cheese casserole that often passes for m&c.
The quinoa casserole was equally good, showing the touch of a chef who can really blend and enhance tastes so that it comes out with each ingredient identifiable but a totality that is more.

Grass Fed Beef.
The food was good, the clam chowder was memorable and worth a trip just be itself - the apple (peach) cobbler was great but the brownie my husband had was hard and bland (I make better ones at home).
10/15/2013 12:00:00 AM
Went for Seattle Restaurant Week & the menu was great!

Capitol Hill Scores Another Gem
Slightly hidden but definitely worth finding - everything was great from the food to the drinks and service. Most places serve sub-par dishes for Seattle Restaurant week but not the Manhattan! I had Steak Bites served in a scrumptious ginger and soy sauce medley as the appetizer. Then I moved on the Sea Scallops placed over a delicious quinoa and risotto bed. AND THEN, finished off with mouth-watering peach cobbler.
Like I said, this place is definitely worth finding in a neighborhood full of other treasures. It's a must!

Girls Night Out
I selected this restaurant for Seattle's Restaurant Week for a girls night out and it was perfect. They were able to accommodate such a large group, the food was amazing as well as the staff and ambience. I will definitely return to this place again.
10/16/2013 12:00:00 AM
I was surprised that this New York themed restaurant served food with more of a southern flair. I had the Buttermilk
fried Chicken and arugula salad...both were delicious. Their cocktails were quite tasty too.
10/17/2013 12:00:00 AM
Can't Wait to go Back!
A true gem on Capitol Hill. We were stopped dead in our tracks by the appetizer menu. Mini-crab cakes were some of the best ever: loaded with crab and a zippy sauce. Chowder creamy with an extra "gift" of pork belly, mac/cheese rich and decadent, perfectly cooked enormous scallops wrapped in bacon, and, to cut through the yummy richness, a citrus-y arugula salad. Perfect for sharing! Warm, helpful staff without hovering. Crowded but with a "buzz" of energy versus being noisy/obnoxious in environment that balances elegance and quirky. Perfect for a date nite or group dinner. Definitely going back - need to work through rest of the menu!
10/18/2013 12:00:00 AM

The restaurant was really cold where we were seated near the front.

Everyrhing we ordered was delicious! Pretty rich, but I felt like the desert really made up for it. That and good coffee! Would like to come back post restaurant week

Skip Dessert, Splurge on the Fried
We loved the scallops, fried chicken and shrimp, and the steak bites were tasty. Our desserts were not great - couldn't cut the brownie (SO BURNT), and the apple pie-type dessert was cold and the apples weren't cooked all the way. Weird textures. Loved everything else.
10/23/2013 12:00:00 AM
We went to Manhattan Seattle on Restaurant Week. We had never even heard of this restaurant before but are happy we found it. The food was very well prepared. The ambience was good. We want to go back soon, especially on a rainy day when beers are half price.
10/23/2013 12:00:00 AM
good food, service. parking in Capitol Hill is a real pain though.

Favorite Spot on Capitol Hill
I've only been here a small handful of times, but it's always great! The food is delicious and the staff is super friendly and accommodating. Perfect for a date or a night to hang out with friends. Best to go during happy hour! Just watch out for those weekend crowds.
11/7/2013 4:00:00 PM
Manhattan was recommended to me by a friend. I took my girlfriend out for her birthday dinner and everything went as expected. Food was good. Service was timely and great. I would recommend this restaurant to many others and do see myself returning.
11/8/2013 4:00:00 PM
I have eaten at Manhattans lots of times now. The menu options and food have always been fantastic. The right combinations of flavors and perfect portions. The staff is very friendly and attentive. Only once in many visits have I experienced a server who didn't check on the table routinely. Have recommended the restaurant to lots of friends who also enjoyed the food, service, and atmosphere.
11/14/2013 4:00:00 PM
Best. Burger. EVER.
The title is kind of self explanatory. My girlfriend and I went there yesterday, the service was excellent, everyone there was nice, the atmosphere was warm and pleasant. The food though. My goodness. I have had a lot of burgers before. But none quite as good as this one. The meat was so perfectly cooked, the bun was just that right amount of toasted, even the fries that came along with the burger were amazing. I would most definitely recommend this to a friend in a heart beat.
11/19/2013 4:00:00 PM
It's a wonderful restaurant!
Very accommodating- we had a large group and were all late but they held the reservation and were super nice about it. Food was great and happy hour was cheap, highly recommend!
