Truly a taste of New York. The only thing missing was the bowl of pickles on the table.
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.
We are 4 sisters coming from out of town for a weekend together. The food was great and our waiter was FANTASTIC!!! Just a wonderful experience
Diner style restaurant with average food served in abundant portions. Nothing to write home about.
Amazing! Monte Cristo sandwich, Carrot Cake French Toast! Delicious food, excellent service 1!
Did not really honor our reservation for brunch. forgot numerous order items. No efforts to make amends, no regrets. Try Shermans instead.
Great experience server was wonderful.
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!
Manhattan in the Deli is a comfortable “go-to” place for delicious food in a friendly and casual atmosphere with very professional servers. We are always delighted to dine there!
Great service. Bathrooms smell bad and it carries into dining room.
Excellent dinner at about $16
Very generous portions for two courses
Service is very friendly but sometimes they forget about what you’ve requested
Mediocre food and friendly but infrequent service make this place not worth a second visit.
Extensive menu, literally something for every appetite. Generous portions. We had a very satisfying “comfort food” dinner. Atmosphere was not hectic, which was a welcome interlude in the busy holiday week.
Manhattan in the Desert continues to be the best deli in the area. Authentic flavors and brilliant service are their hallmarks. With a loyal following of locals and attracting tourists, alike, their "warm and friendly atmosphere," with no crowding or rushing, ensures that Manhattan in the Desert will be a favorite for a very long time.
Great comfort food, great service, they just need a fuller bar...
It seemed our server was over worked that day, we were basically ignored and had to ask others for help, usually it is a better experience
Superb genuine deli food
Best for lunch, huge portions. Breakfast food is not their strong point (Shermans has them beat many times over for breakfast).
Never had dinner there.
Don’t miss the cheesecake!
Great food, Liz was a wonderful waitress. Great menu and Liz was very patient and did a great job explaining the great items we ordered
Manhattan in the Desert is a wonderful “go-to” place for Deli-style food and many other options. Having been to every deli restaurant in the area, Manhattan in the Deli remains our favorite. Huge portions! Service is always warm, friendly, and professional.
Getting too expensive
We ordered a beef dip, and a Reuben sandwich. Both of us had terrible stomach problems the next day . These are sandwiches we order often when out for a causal meal. Can only assume this restaurant uses a lot of MSG .
This is a true oasis: variety and service with scrumptious breakfast options. A terrific diner without the low-rent ambience (or the annoying noise level) of a New York experience. And the pastry options at the checkout counter are tempting enough to seduce even the most steadfast dieters!
The food is just average —I have eaten there several times —and over priced. Service is good.
Very fast service. We had a movie to get to and the waitress was right on it.
I showed up for my reservation and they didn't have ti in the books so didn't get credit. Even though I had a confirmation and you sen me this review request.
Long line up when we arrived. Thank goodness for Opentable!
Our server was great, the food was great, the menu was huge! There’s something for everyone here.
Somewhat disappointed this time. But I will get over it because it just doesn’t happen often. I ordered the steak sandwich medium. It was well done. Didn’t get the onion rings that were suppose to be included. Oh well ... next time.
I had a fabulous corned beer sandwich with delicious Cole slaw. I was very happy. The matzoh ball soup was good too.
