Great food and service. We felt safe because they did a great job spacing the dinners out.

They were obviously short staffed and the servers were working hard. But this resulted in long waits and mediocre service. The food was not like what we've experienced in the past. The steaks were tough and grisly, the seafood was meh, and the kitchen was out of several items. I think all restaurants are struggling a bit right now, and it's not the staff's fault, but this was a rare dinner out for a 50th wedding anniversary and it was sub par. We won't be returning.

We ate on the patio at 7:00 PM. It was pleasantly warm and the view was nice, we could see the nearby green area and a sliver of Lake Oswego. We enjoyed the food, the service, and the people and dog watching. A very enjoyable evening.

I know it has been difficult to get back to normal with staffing and service post Covid. With that in mind, my review is a 3. The waiter was pleasant, seemed a little distracted. But he was on time, friendly encounter each time. The food was just ok. Nothing special. My husband ordered an old fashioned which was not done properly. We were told there was a new bartender. I can see how this could in normal times, be a $100 dinner for four restaurant. But this experience did not come close to meeting that value. I will eat there again, once staffing levels normalize everywhere overall.

Our waitress was superb and made our special evening extra special with her kind attentiveness! We enjoyed a delightful umbrella table on the back patio with a lovely view, while dining on our favorite prime rib roasted to perfection!!!

Justice the server was great!
The steaks were tough and chewy.
The crab and artichoke dip, although delicious, was cold in the middle.

We’ve been here before. This time was a disappointment.

A couple disappointments: they were out of a couple of the items we wanted to order, namely the watermelon margarita and crab and artichoke dip. But we didn’t let it bother us.

Service was great: quick, friendly and helpful. Prime rib dinner is probably one of the best things on the menu, though my mom loved her bbq salmon dish. We’ll definitely be back!

It is clear that you are understaffed but still filling your restaurant. This causes your staff to be overworked and is a crummy way to run a business. Seating should be based on the capacity of the full team of staff not on other factors like making money. Our waitress was hustling, but the whole process was slow and she clearly could not give us much time. This is not her fault, it is the result of over-seating based on capacity.

One of our favorite restaurants by far, and our go-to for brunch when they used to have it. Still a frequent spot for lunch and occasional dinner. We wouldn't go so often if it weren't for the superior service and reliably high quality.

Excellent service. Waitress was very helpful. Place was clean and orderly. We forgot a birthday card and the server found it on the floor and kept it for us until we could get there to pick it up. Will recommend it to our friends and family. We live in Vancouver and
Will come again.

My husband and I went to Manzana Rotisserie Grill for our anniversary. It was a nice experience from beginning to end! The server was attentive, and everyone who came to our table was friendly and helpful. The food and drinks were Delicious! I chose the steak salad with the Lemon drop martini and my hubby the fish tacos and Old Fashion. We had the Guacamole with chips as our appetizer, the guacamole was tasty! Both meals were excellent! We enjoyed ourselves immensely!

Securing a table, on a weekend evening, in the pandemic, during the hottest weekend in the HISTORY of the city proved challenging. Driving from downtown to LO was 100% worth it for our experience at Manzana. Table was ready on time. The A/C was working as hard as possible to keep the place comfortable. Food, drinks and service were all excellent. A+ experience.

Food was our big disappointment. My prime rib was equal amounts of meat and fat. Excessive fat, being to the point of gross. I could barely cut the fat off. My husbands steak on his salad was the same, the meat was tough. Asparagus was stringy and overcooked. The mashed potatoes were good. We brought our own wine to celebrate our anniversary and the corkage fee was $15 dollars, which I thought was a bit high. No complimentary bread. Not my idea of a special occasion. We tipped 20% due to the struggle businesses have gone through and the fact that it is not easy to work in a mask all day. Doubt we will be going back.

Great location, free parking, nice outdoor seating. Service for full meal was efficient but quite rushed - we had the distinct impression that turning the table was important to the restaurant. Food quality depends on what you order. The fish tacos are dismal and smothered in a gloppy 'guacamole' that was a strange shade of brown-green and contain only tiny little squares of fried fish. However, the fish and chips was great, the tortilla soup is great. I think it's a place where you need to stick to their most popular dishes and avoid the rest of the menu. Maybe just go for happy hour and bar snacks and people watching outside- but I wouldn't recommend it for a nice dinner experience, it's just OK.

Our Father's Day dinner was great, the food was good, generous portions and the steak tidbits were made of high quality steak, i.e. no chewy pieces. The service was fantastic, attentive and friendly, overall highly recommended.
