Was great food
Took a little bit of time to get food and be served
We were a lil rushed since they closed at 11pm
Small portions , somewhat pricey. Outstanding flavors and service
Meat MeatMEat Manzo great rich italian meaty fare -- pastas delicious but it is the prep of the meat
Excellent food! Excellent service! We shared the 40 oz porterhouse steak, and it was amazing!
Our second time for dinner. Food and service excellent. Very noisy; it didn't bother me, but the other two diners found it a bit much. That said, it is a fun place. We had a 5:45 res on a Saturday night (the first time we went on a Fri. night and earlier; it wasn't as noisy). I'll go back; however, I'm not so sure my husband will!
Service and wait-staff were friendly, observant, attentive to our needs. Food was undercooked, and bland. Won’t repeat.
Great aged beef, must try the 40oz bone in Rib Eye.
I’ve been here a few times. The service is great. The pastas are good. The entrees are never quite what I think they will be. But a great place to eat in Eataly.
Enjoyed 3 pastas and a 40-ounce porterhouse carver and portioned for 5 of us on a business trip. Staff was great. Atmosphere was very cool at a restaurant inside of Eatley. Very vibrant. Food was fantastic.
Just not remarkable enough for what it should be. Great flavors, sure, but fairly ordinary and unsurprising meat dishes, pasta dishes. The pace is frenetic, dare I say break-neck, the atmosphere impossibly loud, and a pack of stressed waiters tackles every table, in an awful hurry to move on. No human connection -- just herding people in and out. We were on a date for my husband's birthday, made note of that in the reservation, yet found absolutely nothing special, memorable or friendly or warm about the experience from start to finish. Impersonal. Disappointing. Most especially considering the hefty price tag.
Service was very slow and 3 out of the four in my party didn’t enjoy the food. The ambiance was just ok. Prices were high for the quality of the food and the portion size. I like Eataly, and I was hoping for more from this restaurant. With so many great restaurants in NYC, I doubt I’ll go back.
Used to be a white tablecloth fine dining place and now it’s much more casual, che
Really good food and service. A little loud but worth it.
We always spend one evening at Eataly in the Flatiron District when we are in NYC and Manzo is our restaurant of choice. The food is excellent, though they seem to be focusing more on beef and pork entrees. Their homemade pasta and sauces are fantastic - we literally ordered a pasta with a white wine sauce for 'dessert'. We highly recommend Eataly for a fantastic true Italian experience!
I am not usually a meat eater, but the amazing steak and lamb shank is too good to miss. Great wine list and lots reasonably priced. Friendly, super helpful wait staff and I LOVE the atmosphere. I go every time I’m in New York.
Just amazing! Busy, yet lovely hostess took us in straight away (we had reservations). Wait staff was friendly, knowledgeable and gave great suggestions on cocktails and wine pairings. Food was delicious and filling. We shared the burrata as an appetizer but really could have eaten one each! The fresh food market was also fantastic and had sooo many options of interesting breads, pastas, sauces, choice cuts of meats, etc etc Just bring extra cash... you may spend more than you anticipated! Can't wait to go back!
Spaghetti Cacio e Pepe was excellent - recommend splitting because it's soooo rich.
Bistecca del Macellaio (Grilled Flat Iron Steak with Arugula) and Capesante Scottate (scallops) were also excellent.
Less excellent were the Insalata di Stagione - greens were tough and the dressing too creamy - and most disappointing, the Sommelier’s Pick Pinot Noir Ottin 2015, Valle d'Aosta $18 - too grapey, just not a good pinot, in my opinion.
On balance, a B+ experience.
The food was good, the service wasn’t the greatest. I know it’s a busy restaurant, but we felt like we were being rushed out through our meal so that our table could be given to someone else.
I stepped away to use the restroom after we had paid (my friend was still sitting at the table and all my stuff was on my seat), but by the time I came back they had seated a party of 5 on the table for 4 next to us, and the 5th person was sitting on my jacket, in my seat, while my friend was still opposite her. Apparently they had sat the customer down without so much as even asking, despite my jacket being on the chair. This was barely an hour after our reservation time, so it’s not like we had been sitting there forever either.
Great food in a casual environment while visiting the city.
Manzo is very conveniently located just across from the Flatiron building. The store/restaurant is very busy, just about all of the time, but it is manageable and comfortable.
The bar area is very nice and the bar tenders were very attentive and pleasant. Drinks are slightly pricey, but not outrageous. Both of these wines were very nice -
Amarone della Valpolicella Serafini & Vidotto 2013, Veneto - $ 20
Vino Nobile di Montepulciano La Braccesca 2014, Toscana - $16
Food is very good, but is ONLY to be ordered all at once. Our waiter made a point of that numerous times. We weren't sure how hungry we were so we wanted to order appetizers and then figure out our main, but that wasn't allowed. "Chef is very particular", was our waiter's explanation.
Quirky waiter aside, everything we ordered was very tasty and good quality. We decided just to get a variety of appetizers. We had the meatballs, the Prosciutto di Parma, the Rucola Selvatica, and the Burrata e pane. Very filling, didn't end up needing an entree (Luckily - might have caused an issue for quirky waiter!)
Way too over-hyped, big tourist spot, ton of better places for handmade pasta in NYC
Always a good experience!
Good food is overshadowed by slightly smaller than expected portion sizes, mediocre service, and cafeteria style ambiance.
Manzo lacks greatly in the overall dining experience.
Dining at Manzo last Saturday was a TOTAL RIP OFF. The salmon and the beef short ribs were dry, tasteless and room temperature, the scallops were micro sized. The portion was meagre, the cost ridiculously overpriced ($10 for each scallop) , the plated food looked unappetizing. The waiters were rushing us, aggressive about taking our plates and got the menu details wrong. They brought us a dish we didn't order and looked annoyed when we said we didn't order the dish. The noise level LOUD (NOT energetic, but annoying) and there was no elegance details on the table, no linens, and the chairs uncomfortable. The place must be filled with tourists because New Yorkers would know this place is a terrible joke as a restaurant.
The food was very good. Appi, salad and pasta all were delicious. We were passed from one server to another at 5:15 and then to another server at 5:30. The server (Anna) kept pressuring us to finish and pay. She said her shift was over and had to “close out”. It was very uncomfortable. She kept walking by our table hoping we would finish. The experience left us very unhappy. I can’t say that I would rush back because the vibe from staff was tough.
Terible service. Waited 3 hours for meat that was supposed to be ready in 40 mins. Bad waiters. Potatoes were extremely salty - inedible. Instead of bringing new ones he just took them from the table and charged them anyways.
Food was very good and the venue was interesting (inside of Eatly). We came at exactly 5pm when the restaurant opened but it was one and half hours to have a simple dinner, no coffee or dessert. terribly slow.
Everything was good, not great. We have eaten in various areas of Eataly, and expected this to be better, but we were disappointed.
Even though I arrived for my reservation they marked me as "NO SHOW" after speaking with manager it was fixed, welcome bread & olive oil came to table after my appetizer served & finished! Why?! I ate better Italian food than this! Am I coming back again? NO!
Noise level was expected as it’s in an open market. Service was less than stellar especially since the pricing was in the higher range (I and my guests would have expected more attention plus it was not a full restaurant).
Loved it! Food and staff were excellent. Lots of energy. It is noisy, but it’s part of the energy. Look forward to returning.
La pasta muy buena, vino excelente y hasta el pan con aceite de oliva, un aceite extra virgen de una calidad óptima, recomendable.
Food was superb. I like the hazelnut cake.
They need to work on the menu, you need someone to help you go through it
Unfortunately, it seemed they were short staffed and we had a horrible experience because of it.
The server brought me a Pinot noir instead of Pinot Grigio, then we never got our appetizer. Then my salmon came out raw.
It was just not good.
Manzo’s was tucked away in the back of Eataly which was really nice to be away from all the hustle and bustle. We tried the prosciutto which was great with the homemade mozzarella, gnocchi and Brussels sprouts. We also tried a dish called “teste” which was pretty spicy and not my favorite thing but tasting new things is always something fun and educational.
Excellent dinner with great menu choices. Especially love the homemade pasta and fresh meats. The short rib with polenta dish was exceptional. The pesto pasta dish with sausage was fresh and flavorful. Would recommend and definitely will be back.
The food and wine were great- so was the service! Only downside— The couple next to us was loud and annoying! The tables were pretty close together so we were able to hear their conversations.
Were recommended and the food did not disappoint. We were a little disappointed in the service. Our waiter took a long time to initially greet us. He did recommend good dishes which we loved. The food came out exceptionally fast and was delicious. He never came back for a 2nd drink and a 2nd waiter came and offered us dessert which was also delicious. Then after 10-15 minutes we had to ask a table busser for our check. A great restaurant with a lot of potential but need improvement on the service side.
