not really very good; too expensive given what the food is; very noisy and difficult for conversation; seating accommodated our late arrival but got attitude about it

I love this restaurant and the food and service is always outstanding. This time the food was not 100% but still very good. We sat indoor since the weather was cold but I love their outside seating and the ambiance. The waiter was not the regular and he was not as good as the rest of the team.

Excellent service here. It was windy and cold, so they figured out a way to get us to an inside table. Server was knowledgeable and food was prompt and pretty good. Parking was not terribly easy. The owner parked in front of the handicapped spot because of some construction...
Overall, a nice dinner with a nice atmosphere. We would definitely come back.

This is hands down my go-to place for a great meal, whether with family or friends. It's consistently wonderful. They're probably tired of seeing me there ... but I will keep going back. The Queen's Delight is awesome -- just one of so many things to try.

😋 lamb chops are insane!!! Worth the price, chicken and beef kebabs are also to die for. Money well spent

Pretty place in a good location. The food was ok, service was fair and portions are very small. The server initially told us that the entrees were large enough to be family style but it is most definitely not the case. Order your own entree. The lamb chops I ordered were severely charred and inedible. We decided to not bother with dessert based on the mediocre dinner. Standard gratuity charge for a party of 5. Servers seemed really busy and could not keep up with the tables so maybe they were short handed.

My husband and I LOVE Mantee, and are reminded of why whenever we eat there. We love yo take friends, but this time, it was just the two of us. Nevertheless, we still ordered all our very favorites -- tabouleh, hummus with pine nuts, sue berag, queen's delight, mantee traditional and spicy potatoes -- and took the extra home. Yum!!!
