We had the most amazingly beautiful and delicious meal at Holla! The Hawaiian fried rice with shrimp was something special and the bread pudding was so unexpected and delicious. We will be dining at Holla every time we are in Manitowoc!

We had a nice dinner. It was my wife’s birthday, the only reason for 3 stars overall was they were out of the one entree she really wanted so she had to settle for an alternate that wasn’t really what she had in mind. Service was very good, the kids enjoyed their pizza and the shrimp and grits I ordered were excellent.

Hi Mr Augustine, Thank you for coming in to celebrate your Wife's birthday with us. Im sorry we did not have the dish she wanted, I assume you're talking about the Barramundi. We did not run out of it, we had issues with our purveyor that week. They "guaranteed" me 3 times they would deliver it that week, but they did not deliver. Needless to say, I am in the process of getting a new seafood source. Im sorry that something out of our control warranted 3 stars, even though you enjoyed everything

Two items on menu were not available early into the evening. Shepherd’s Pie was really an Irish Stew. Very good food. Little light on quantity for the price. Easy to online reserve. Several selections of an excellent Wisconsin whiskey, Driftless Glen, available.

Hi Dano, The only thing a ran out of was the Veggie burger. It WAS a shepherds pie, using lamb leg/shoulder, no beef or Guinness. Having grown up in a large Irish Catholic family, I do know the difference. I do apologize that you feel it was light on the size but I felt it was adequate portion with 6 oz of lamb and 6 oz of vegetables not counting the mashed potatoes, I would like to offer you a $10 gift card with the hopes of fixing any displeasure. Please contact me at the restaurant -Chef Myke

It has been a number of months since since we have been to the Manitowoc area and dined at Holla, but my daughter begged me to go back as she remembered how good it was last year when we visited. Holla did not disappoint - the service was top notch and the food was creative & delicious. We started with the Beet Bruschetta (very good flavor combination). I had the Veggie Pizza and loved the unique toppings of shaved brussels & cauliflower. My husband and daughter shared two entrees - the Brisket Sammy & the Carnitas Tacos. They couldn't decide which was better. We will definitely dine there again whenever we return to the area.

Too many spicy entrees on the menu. 4 out of 5. Not everyone likes cayenne pepper.

I understand, sometimes it’s hard because things like my Moroccan spice blend has over 12 different spices in the mix, so I can’t expect the servers to remember all of them especially when there are other dishes that are layered with flavor. I really try to suppress a lot of spice because I am familiar with the demographic in our area is sensitive to heat. As to the Moroccan flavors I would define them as deeply robust, and rich (for future reference) ,again, thank you for dining with us.

Service was below average. My waitress had approximately 2 tables yet my drink stayed empty until I asked, I even stood at the door waiting to be seated for 10 minutes awkwardly while someone stood with their back to me wiping off menus and the bartender walked dirty glasses to the back of house and made their way around the restaurant cleaning off tables. My view was direct to the kitchen where my pizza sat on the counter for over 20 minutes waiting for my husband's entree to cook. The crust was cold and soggy. I think of Holla for every special occasion, but to say I was disappointed this time would be an understatement.

Hi Mrs. Palomino, Im sorry you two had issue with the service. When you came on 9/26 for your 7 pm. reservation you arrived at 6:42. As for your wait time I apologize, after reviewing the video we noticed you were kind of hidden in the entryway by our "Please see Hostess" sign, which is high traffic area. I saw that you eventually came to the hostess station, at which point my Wife/Bartender sat you at 6:49. As for your pizza, PLEASE email me and I will treat you to a new one. -Chef Myke

I do not normally complain, but I truly want this restaurant to succeed as I support what they are doing. We were excited to try Holla, and requested to sit outside. The table and chairs were covered in spider webs. We ordered drinks, and as we sat waiting for the drinks we realized the entire seating area was covered in well established spider webs and lairs. This was a turn off for us and we decided to finish our drinks and leave. It's like going to a place with a dirty bathroom, you wonder what the kitchen looks like. Holla, you have a great idea and a beautiful setting, it just needs a little TLC. We will try you again.

We truly apologize for your uncomfortable experience. We definitely sprayed all of the tables and chairs with sanitizer that day before service & none of us had noticed. I did notice later that evening up in the corners of the pergola & I swooshed them away. I personally don't have arachnophobia but if it was a problem for you then we could have taken care of right then. And I assure you that spiders on our patio has nothing to do with the cleanliness of our kitchen or bathroom. Especially now!

Beautiful restaurant. We were greeted immediately when we entered. But had to wait quit awhile to receive our drink order and there were no sauce options either for the homemade chips.
Our fish tacos were delicious, and the pizza was good. But a longer than normal wait time to receive those items too.

Moved here a year ago from our nation’s capital and it’s been difficult to find a place for great food. Don’t get me wrong, there are several restaurants in Manitowoc that have special appeal; but, when it comes to Amazing food and Great customer service: Holla wins hands down. Makes me feel like I’m back home (born and raised in the District of Columbia).

I live in Chicago and this is my go to restaurant whenever I am in the area visiting family. Food and service are always great.

I find the overhead fluorescent lights to be too bright at night. I feel like I am in an office.

Even though I don't like the fluorescent lighting, the food and service will keep me coming back.
