This is one of my top 10 favorite restaurants in Oregon. They treat you like family, the food is consistently awesome, and it's charming inside. They just refreshed the decor and it has an awesome upscale vibe. Highly recommend.

We had a delightful evening here on New Years Day. Our waiter gave us excellent service with a smile and the food was delicious. Will be back when we’re in the Manzanita area again

This spot was a neat spot for our first time visit to Manzanita, having made the reservation on line. A comfortable well decorated restaurant in an older house. The menu was unique and interesting. We started with our usual bottle of wine. My wife ordered the Cod with risotto and I ordered the Prawns with polenta and were they great. Our server, Eisha, was very attentive and friendly.

Sweet little place, cheery, attentive waiter, incredible food. I was very glad I’d made a reservation; the dining room is small and it’s understandably popular, even on a Thursday night. This is a perfect place for a special dinner (birthday, anniversary, etc.), or just for a lovely dinner in a quiet, friendly place. I even got to chat with the chef! A+++, would recommend heartily.

The only thing I noticed that was less than expectation was the Fillet Mignon was a bit overdone. I asked for medium rare and got a medium to well. It was Ok but I was a disappointed as we have eaten here before and the steaks were always cooked correctly.

Great experience, delicious food, and great staff. The Smoked Salmon dish is awesome, mouth watering delicious. Beautiful relaxing inside seating and the outdoor seating area is just as nice. Friendly, experienced, and professional staff, they were all excellent. I will definitely recommend to my relatives and friends and go back and try more dishes.

Once is enough.

The food was very good. However, when we initially misinterpreted the menu, the waiter got snippy with us. It was a plus that he did offer to replace the polenta with a green salad, even though the menu says not to ask for substitutions.

The best continental restaurant in Manzanita. Great craft cocktails and good NW wine list. Great apps. Debbie is a fantastic server and guided us through some well curated dishes.

This coastal bistro is in a house and has a charming, uncrowded ambience. My husband and I were seated at a corner table for two with windows on both sides. The chairs were fully upholstered dining chairs which made for a special dining experience. Our server was excellent and we enjoyed the Chardonnay. The food was fresh and delicious but with a caveat: it is very rich food. My True Cod came with an ample amount of a beurre blanc, served on top of a risotto heavy with (cream?) and manchego cheese. My husband's dish, penne with house smoked salmon and mushrooms, was also in a rich cream sauce. We enjoyed the flavors of both dishes and the cod was a wonderful piece of fish. However, we prefer lighter, healthier styles of cooking so not sure if we would return without a change in the menu.

Interesting pairing for the salad.... coconut shrimp , mango and avocado . The mashed potatoes are incredible -- don't miss them. And the service was great, friendly and easy going. If you go to Manzanita, this is the place to go

Nice, but small outdoor patio seating and inside quaint, small tables. The service wasn’t great because they seemed to be understaffed. They turned away a lot of walk up groups, but tables still available. The shrimp, mango salad and cod with risotto were delicious.

What a treasure. Lynne is a real artist in the kitchen. The ambience is relaxed yet intimate. Service was attentive and thoughtful. Food: the Dungeness crab risotto was incredible and the steak and prawns were both outstanding. Literally, the kind of yummy, you want to lick the plate clean! Such a special experience. Highly recommended!

Neah Kah Nie Bistro is one of our favorite spots for an out of town guest or a special evening. The food is excellent, the service engaging and the ambiance is spot on! Thank you for your commitment to enhancing our food choices on the North Oregon Coast.

We were knocked out by everything at Neah Kah Nie. The modest house hid a real gem. A warm atmosphere was apparent as soon as we walked in. It was 4th of July week and most restaurants in this resort town were harried by the unusually high traffic. Not the staff at Neah Kah Nie. We were warmly welcomed and well served.

Our food was wonderful. Thoughtfully prepared and attractively served. I had risotto with true cod. It was delicious. The wine list was pretty extensive for such a small house.

Absolutely a must for anyone on the Oregon Coast. The service is spot on and the food is scrumptious! I took my mom for her first time and my mother, who is very picky, loved everything about the place. I couldn’t find the pear martini on the menu, but the waitress knew what I was talking about and made me one. While everything on the menu is a must to try, I would highly recommend having at least a cup of their clam chowder. It is the best that I’ve ever tasted -scrummy (scrumptious/yummy)!

Quite a nice experience overall, but considering that we dined from the appetizers and small plates lists and had very little to drink, we felt the meal was overpriced somewhat.
