    We love coming to this Restaurant. Mantee Cafe is delicious food, friendly wait staff, and a nice ambiance. We got several appetizers and our entrees. It is always relaxing, not rushed, and the food is always spot on! Love it and will be coming again and again. It is great to large, medium or small groups. The lights and set up in the patio is lovely.

    Mantee Caffé is our favorite place to go to have a meal that reminds us of the flavors of home cooked meals. The atmosphere of the outdoor area is beautiful, the perfect place to gather with friends and reminisce. The food exceptionally delicious and the service very friendly and excellent!

    The food is always up to expectations and very good. All of the flavors from even their salads are excellent. We always order the fatoosh salad, spicy potato’s, spicy feta cheese, hummus at minimum to start. Then brazino, kebab are staples. It’s a family run restaurant that always serves amazing food.

    Was neither good nor bad. We wanted to try something different as we like to try nee places. We found it on open table. The back patio was nice. The salad was good but the kabob meal was small and the meat seamed like it was boiled not broiled. Nowadays with food so expensive, it has to be exceptional for us to return… we likely will not.

    We love this spot! We frequent it often. They wait staff is attentive and the food is always excellent! This visit, we had the cold and hot appetizers, hummus, mutable, muhammara, sue boreg and our chicken breast entre with flavorful rice, juicy tomato, roasted pepper and toum (garlic sauce). Delicious! The Chef really knows his Mediterranean flavors and does them up so well! Bravo!

    Came for Father's Day. Service is always very good. Unfortunately, this was the second time they were out of falafel. Seems to me at 1pm in the afternoon this should not be happening. They are very busy which is good, but this is the second time we were told that we had to get all of our order in at once and not add dishes throughout the meal. This is the type of place where you need to be able to do that. Also, they took the shared appetizer of hummus, etc. off the menu so with a big family party it makes ordering more difficult. Food is excellent.

    This was my first visit to Mantee Cafe. The selection and the quality of the food was outstanding. We ordered shareable items and shared some of our entrees. All were excellent--food is very fresh and the preparation was novel. The service was a bit lacking, and that could be due to under staffing. It would be nice if the server could check in with us, and bring water refills. I will definitely return as will my friends who joined me for dinner.

    I’ve always loved this restaurant! Have been going for years. The ambience is perfect and the food is always so yummy! Their fattoush salad is to die for! I’m sad that they changed their outdoor patio (they used to have the most adorable wall) but it’s still cute. Highly recommend!

    The food was "OK"...We ordered the moutabal - I;ve had better, actually much better. The Branzino and roasted potatoes tasted great. The lamb chops tasted like spaghetti... there was some kind of a tomato sauce on them (maybe I should have read the description more carefully). Lamb chops should not taste like spaghetti sauce. Would not return; however, if you like Branzino, go for it.

    Stumbled upon this restaurant when looking for nearby dinner options and decided to give it a try. It was truly delightful. Friendly staff, very cute patio, and absolutely incredible food. We tried multiple dishes (including their traditional Mantee dish) and shared it family style. Already can't wait to come back.
