Very friendly and efficient staff. The food order was taken and then delivered in a very timely manner. Great menu with full array of choices.

Manager on duty, Kim, made an extra effort to visit with us and even bought us dessert.

My favorite "go to" place. The Sweet and Sour Cabbage soup is beyond wonderful, though my husband is in love with the matzo ball soup. A fabulous choice is the cup of soup and half sandwich. Believe me, the half sandwich is more than enough to fill you, and the BBQ Baby Back Ribs are so very, very good. Made my mother's day!

As usual, our waiter and the hostess were so wonderful, and the food was predictably delicious. I need to follow a low sodium diet and you'd think a place like this wouldn't have much, but they were so accommodating, and friendly about my requests. Also, my friend is physically challenged a bit so I asked for a booth in the lower section and the hostess made sure it happened. Love this place!!

We've been coming to Manhattan for many years and, sadly, the service has really changed. Long wait to be greeted by a server, even longer wait for drinks to arrive, no follow up once food arrives, no drink refills without flagging someone down. Really too bad, we used to rave about this place - not any more.

This is not a fancy-schmancy restaurant; it's a deli, and as close to a real (that is, big city) deli as you can find in the Coachella Valley. The food is always good, and it is what the menu says it is. I went with a group of 11 and waitstaff had no problem accommodating us. Service was friendly and quickly corrected a few little bobbles that are bound to happen with 11 orders. Waitstaff here are the kind of people you know by name. Desserts are huge--take one home (carrot cake or German chocolate cake, or New York cheesecake).

Two families with 5 children. Could not have been more impressed with the service and level of attention the waiter provided our table. It was very busy, and he gave us a lot of his time to be sure we were well looked after. Would highly recommend for families and children. Food was great for adults and children alike. Portions are huge!

Upon arrival we were taken to a table in the very back corner near the fire exit and stacked high chairs. Dismal place to be seated especially since I had made a reservation 2 or 3 days earlier. There was no way either of us coming have stayed in that location I immediately asked for one of the three open booths near the window. We were reseated. Our waitress was excellent! Her name was something similar to fabulous. I have been to this location previously & also Palm Desert and always have had delicious meals so was disappointed with the food this time. Although the French Dip came with au jus the meat was very dry. My friend’s sandwich was also dry. We each only ate 1/2 our meal & took the rest home. I thought perhaps I could do something to increase the flavor but I ended up tossing it out. When I spoke to my friend today she also ended up not eating hers.
All in all, very disappointing.

We are snowbirds and love Manhattan and drive from La Quinta to go there. They have great pizza as well as many other food options. The Palm Desert location is closer but we went there and they didn't have a pizza oven, so could not order the pizza. Everything we have tried is excellent and moderately priced, and the service is always good. This occasion was an 80th birthday celebration for a friend, and Armondo was an excellent server, bringing a complimentary dessert for the birthday girl. We recommend Manhattan in the Desert to all.

So far my favorite deli style restaurant! The food was delicious, the portions were huge. We went for dinner on a Friday night and came back for breakfast on a Sunday. We can't wait to go back. Everything is fresh and home made and the menu is like a book! so much to choose from. You must eat here and bring your friends!
