About

Manoli’s is a small plates restaurant that reinterprets Greek cuisine in a way that showcases fresh, local and seasonal products. All dishes are ingredient driven and prepared from scratch, allowing a variation of styles and techniques to emphasize the importance of seasonal and local bounty. As a neighborhood restaurant, we believe a small plates menu will allow customers a greater palate variety and the opportunity to create an elevated sense of community fashioned by sharing.

This was our fourth or fifth time at Manoli’s. The food and service is always amazing. The lamb ribletts are my favorite thing on their menu. They have an excellent list of wine and cocktails. We love this place.

Manoli’s is a classy, hip, delicious restaurant that is sure to impress. The flavors and menu creations are genius and one-of-a-kind. The atmosphere is intimate, but all the guests seemed to be experienced and been there before as repeat customers. Very flavorful food you won’t find anywhere else! We always order a couple small plates and a couple large plates, we like to share and taste each creation. Some menu items are seasonal. Don’t miss out on dessert, the Greek donuts with honey/cinnamon sauce are amazing! Be sure to make a reservation and take your time trying different menu items.

We arrived with only half of our party present, but we were seated without any issues and were given the opportunity to order drinks or food as we waited for our friends to arrive. Our server never seemed annoyed at having only half of us at the table and he only checked in with us to make sure we had the food/drinks we wanted.
We ordered from the meze menus and the scallops were the best thing I've had in some time. I'd also recommend the meatballs. Sorry I'm not going to check back on the menu for the actual item names.
Dessert special was a juniper posset and it was amazing. Great experience all-around.

We were given a gift card and were so excited to try this for a date night. It far exceeded our expectations in every way. Service was phenomenal! Nolan was very knowledgeable and super kind. The overall ambience was very nice. Other patrons talked to us and were very friendly. I highly recommend Manoli’s.

Manolis came recommended by friends. The food was incredible. The charred red peppers with a light cheese filling was absolutely amazing. All the flavors combined so well. The ribs were incredibly tender and had an amazing flavor. The brussel sprout salad had a great flavor, but the bacon was a little thick and dry. The new burger on the menu had great flavor, but was swimming in butter and therefore left the base of the bun a little soggy. The atmosphere was nice and quiet. It was perfect for a date night. The waiter was kind and attentive. Overall we had a great experience and we highly recommend this restaurant.

We went out to have a quick dinner and this hit the spot. On our waiters advice we split the arugula salad (which was more than enough for two people) and ordered individual entrees (shrimp and scallops). The dinner portions are not huge, but with the salad it was perfect. Our waiter's recommendation on white wines, (a dry Greek), was great! We will definitely be going back.

We had been wanting to try Manoli’s for quite a while now, coming in from Park City. It did not disappoint! We did all small plates. The flavor combinations were perfect! The octopus was most tender and flavorful. The Brussel sprout Caesar was terrific! We will be back soon!

Our dining experience was delicious on multiple sensory levels. The ambiance, presentation, and amazing flavors delighted our palettes. The wait staff was attentive and knowledgeable about the menu. The portions are petite and so delectable that they disappear before your eyes! Loved the signature cocktails as well! A great place to celebrate a special occasion.

First visit to Manoli's and it was a delightful experience. Our server was excellent, personable, very knowledgeable about the menu and served the appetizers and entrees with the perfect amount of time in between so we never felt rushed. The food was excellent as well. My husband ordered a salad to start which was big enough for two and then he had the chicken which was delicious. I ordered the lamb burger and it was perfectly cooked to order and extremely tasty. We were very pleased and will definitely return soon.

Why isn’t all octopus made this way? It’s so much better than just calimari. Why is calamari the most popular octopus dish if you can make octopus taste this way? Those are the questions I left Manoli’s with.

Manoli's is a wonderful restaurant! We try to go as often as we can despite living in Sandy. The staff is so friendly and helpful – including Manoli himself. The food is fantastic. We prefer to sit at one of the seats at the bar overlooking the kitchen. It's so fun to watch your food prepared in front of you.

Highly recommended!

What a great find. We were looking for something different and satisfying and boy did we find it. Everything was delicious. The mezas were big enough to share and the main dinner options were large. I was do the picking of restaurant when we go out, and Manolios was a winner. Thanks for a great evening.

food was awesome however i would recommend serving up some vegan options or mention that some dishes could be made vegan. i stuck to the vegetarian small plates. there’s weren’t any veg for mains sadly😭
for setting a reservation in an advance i was disappointed in the table the restaurant chose for us. right next to a screaming child and to the other side of us there were three very loud possibly drunk gentleman. i could barely hear my date when he spoke to me. the people next to us interrupted our conversations abruptly just by how loud they were being a few times and then we’d lose our train of thought. i’m not sure who was louder, the screaming kid or the dude next to me that kept outbursting to his friends. i wouldn’t recommend this place if you want a nice peaceful dinner with someone special. don’t propose to your girlfriend here.

Limited number and variety of small plates, interesting presentations, but left feeling I'd chosen the wrong things. Fried donut balls dessert was over the top too big portion relative to the size of the entre small (sometimes very small) plates. Should/will give it another try, but... there are other better small plate choices in town.

Tried Manolis for Sunday Brunch and it was outstanding. We have dined there before and recommended to several friends who also loved the restaurant but this was a great find for Brunch. Many other restaurants in the area were fully booked but we found that Manolis was wide open since people do not realize what a great Brunch Restaurant it is.
