This is an interesting restaurant. Not a chain, which is nice. The staff was very friendly and it is in a rather quiet spot in Orange. We went on a Tuesday for a business/friends dinner and it was ideal on a quiet night. It's old school and not for 20 somethings-which worked for us. The food was good to excellent. Great side dishes and steaks were cooked properly. It was hard to judge the ambiance, but it was slightly unnerving to sit in a Ray Donovan set (I live in NYC) which I guess is "welcome to California old school." Go for the excellent steaks and sides-not to propose to that 27 year-old bikini model that your grown kids hate.

Another great experience! Our waiter, Jesus, was fabulous. The meal began with an amuse-bouche which was a fried oyster in the shell. Excellent.

My table had the surf and turf; the filet mignon was prepared perfectly and the lobster tail was quite substantial. The Bison Filet; also cooked to perfection and Jesus recommended a great red wine by the glass to accompany the bison.

The atmosphere in the dining room is quiet, but not stuffy. The bar is tastefully decorated and a great place to start or finish your evening.

The unique menu, finely crafted cocktails, and outstanding service make Manhattan Steak and Seafood a truly memorable dining experience.

My friends frequent the bar often but decided that with 2 birthdays we should celebrate with dinner. Made reservations last minute! The manager of the evening was also our waiter and he allowed us to celebrate in the wine cellar... Such a treat- and all to ourselves! Loved it, food excellent as always, service impeccable! Love you guys! Thank you, see you soon!

Friends recommended ambiance and great music. Upon arrival found no music and although the service was excellent my husbands $60 steak was too rare and cold. Bring music back

Very good wine list at reasonable prices.
Service wasn't bad just spotty.
Our server had only be at this job for 4 months so he'll get better.
Food was good and proper portions.
WE were there for a special occasion (

Our waiter needed more training, but he did his best. The served our appetizers didn't know the type of oysters...again lack of training. The food was good, atmosphere very nice, but pricey. We will not return.
