five: a new american restaurant
Not good. Do not go here. Chef didn’t even show up so half the menu wasn’t available
The food was absolutely delicious. The combination of flavors was spot on. My steak was cooked to perfection.
Everything was great except we were anticipating eating outside since it was a beautiful morning and they were not serving outside. My family who were visiting from out of state prefer outdoor dining although all servers wore masks.
Food was great!
Flavorful, expertly prepared dishes. Warm, enthusiastic service. Small but well-chosen wine list.
The staff is so friendly that we immediately felt at home. The restaurant’s vibe is cool yet comfortable. The owner, Caleb, took time to sit down and visit since we were from out of town. His charismatic personality drives the restaurant. Now, the food: it was spectacular. Amazing flavor combos and textures, perfectly prepared salmon, fresh ingredients- it was an amazing meal. If you are in Manhattan, KS, don’t miss dining here.
Caleb and his staff were AMAZING as usual!! Everyone is so friendly and attentive whether they are your server or not. The arancini were SO delicious!!
As noted in the previous ratings, the quality of the food was good, but the ambience was poor, especially for a restaurant with "posh" prices. The junky music tape they had playing did nothing to enhance the quality of the experience either.
My friends and I went for brunch on Sunday. Great brunch options, amazing service and the bottomless mimosas are great with many flavor options! Kyler and the rest of the staff are great!
We enjoyed our Anniversary meal very much: excellent food and presentation in a very nice setting. We really appreciated having subdued music and only one TV--over the bar. We could converse and focus on the delicious food without the noise and distractions of many restaurants.
Five is definitely one of the better area restaurants, with a unique decor and menu that is often experimental in a good way. Portions are attractive and sensibly sized, with flavors that linger in memory. Our server and her colleagues who came by the table were a delight to visit with.
Food was good and my boy Justin kept them margaritas coming without hesitation 💯
Having just moved from DC, my wife and I were not expecting to find such outstanding food in MHK; but we were pleasantly wrong! The pork belly and the burger were some of the best we’ve ever had worldwide and I would return even for just those. We had oUr 10 year anniversary dinner there last night and between the two of us, we ordered half of all menu items and were not at all displeased. It was a wonderful meal. Their wine and beer selections are small but well curated. We will be returning and can heavily recommend Five.
This is our second time at five and each time the food has been outstanding. Chef Michael continues to add interesting combinations of food. The menu changes with the seasonal availability of ingredients. Our was cooked to perfection.
We were greeted and served by a very courteous and friendly staff! My husband had the prime rib and I had the seafood ravioli — both were excellent! We appreciated the outstanding service and will definitely go back again!
Wonderful atmosphere, delightful drinking and the most glorious food in Manhattan!
Always a wonderful meal. Excellent service.
Staff was very friendly. Atmosphere was great and large portions of food. Will definitely be back!
I always love going to five for dinner or brunch. Always such a welcoming staff with amazing dishes. I eat here probably at least once a week. Plenty of variety on the menu and everything is made well with high quality ingredients. The food will not let you down.
Had a phenomenal time and experience. I will definitely return!
We had the special beef stroganoff it was excellent and of course always the stuffed dates for appetizers.
highly recommend this restaurant
We have never had a bad meal here
Thank you for a wonderful meal and evening
Amazing ! We loved everything about our experience at Five. Delicious food, very friendly and attentive service ,and neat atmosphere. We are looking forward to returning and trying more items on the menu !
Caleb and Muriel offer a fantastic space with delicious food and superb cocktails. Caleb is kind, warm hearted, and a wonderful story teller. We dine there every time we are in town. The vibe is casual and friendly with a personal touch of genuine warmth. I recommend without reservation.
When we walked in there were very few people which made us nervous. The service was excellent. The wine, apps, soup and salad were excellent. The dinner was good, but not quite the flavor sensation the first courses were. We’d definitely go back!
We received our 4 courses in this order
2 (took 20 minutes)
1 (after asking for it 3 times)
I don’t know what the plan is for servers and their sections here, but it’s isn’t working. The food was great, but we were seen by 4 different servers and neglected for 20 minutes at a time. Won’t be back.
Valentines dinner was great. The food and atmosphere were perfect. The service was good, the courses were timed out nicely. The cost was reasonable for dinner, we even had drinks and the price was less than expect. We will be back for brunch.
The food was very good, and the service was excellent. I was not blown away by the selections on the fixed menu for that particular evening, however, what we did order was very good and staff was highly accommodating.
First time to visit. Had heard mixed reviews but wanted to give it a try. Overall we were disappointed. Can’t really think of any area that was better than fair. Service inconsistent with either having long waits (almost ignored) for things like water and drinks to having three staff stop by back to back to back to ask if we were ready to order entrees. Drinks? Watered down and not flavorful. Food? I had pork chop (dry and bland) and my wife had chicken (Just OK). Both were fair at best. Value? Based on the above challenges, and rather high prices for Manhattan, KS, five is a poor value. Don’t write many reviews, especially negative ones, but felt it necessary because of our overall dissatisfaction. Manhattan needs more restaurants like five so hopefully our experience was an outlier.
Enjoyed our dinner celebrating Vday. I loved the special drinks offered and the mussels were great! We will def be back!!
Secret gem in the heart of downtown Manhattan! Creative and diverse menu, and delicious I might add!
Excellent service, very pleasant experience. The food was wonderful. We had the filet and chicken, both were delicious.
We had a Thanksgiving dinner there. It was a fixed menu which allowed individuals to make choices for each course. All of the food was absolutely delicious. The service was impeccable. Highly recommend.
We were there on Thanksgiving, so it was not their regular menu. We had our choice among three appetizers, three entrees (each coming with two sides), & three desserts. Each meal cost $45. Both of us had an apple-pecan salad with balsamic vinaigrette that was exceptional. I had braised beef marinated in an espresso sauce that was perfectly prepared & delicious. My wife had turkey with cranberry sauce. The cranberry sauce was tart & quite good for dipping each bite of turkey. We both had the stuffing which was amazing. I forget what all was in it other than brussel sprouts, but it was really good. I saved my last bite for it, because I wanted its flavors to linger with me. My wife had mashed potatoes while I had the mashed sweet potatoes seasoned with peppers. In virtually any other meal, this would have been my last bite. The combination of sweet & spicy was remarkable. For dessert my wife had the pumpkin pie (which she thought was good) & coffee (which was extremely satisfying). I had chai cheesecake with a caramel apple sauce that was intriguing & quite tasty. The meals are pricey, but if you're not afraid of the sticker shock, you'll most definitely want to try this place out.
It was our first time in Manhattan Kansas and it was Thanksgiving. The staff at Five were great as well as the food. We had a great Thanksgiving experience.
The atmosphere was our reason for trying Five. We wanted somewhere quiet where we could have a conversation. In that regard, it was perfect. The staff were ALL very attentive, not just our specific waitress. The food we ordered was very good, and the prices were reasonable, but the menu was a little limited for us.
The service was outstanding! Colby was a gracious host and made our dinner truly memorable. He offered great suggestions on cocktails and dinner- which by the way was absolutely delicious! We will definitely be back!
Our family had dinner at Five after a K-State win. The food was delicious! I highly recommend the salmon—it was among the best I’ve had anywhere, the meatballs and petit filet were also great. The lobster roll appetizers were fantastic, and the tiramisu was delicious. All-in-all, a wonderful experience!
Very good food. The owner checked up on us. It was great for a date atmosphere.
Food was great. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Wonderful prices. We had a lovely dinner and visit with our daughter. It was nice to be at a place that allowed us to enjoy our time with her.
The restaurant is trying very hard, but we would not return at this time.
