Tables are packed in to maximize space and unable to talk across table. Waitress
seemed new and would drop what she was doing for us when jerk at next table
wanted service.

Excellent food. We tried the deep fried deviled eggs as an appetizer. They were unique and quite tasty.

The veal was cooked perfectly. The steaks were great.

Can't wait to return.

A group of us went last Saturday night for dinner there were six of us we had reservations they were on time seating us The place is absolutely gorgeous on the inside, don’t let the front of the building fool you.
Everyone loved their meal. My son-in-law who has been there many times said I had to get the pork chops they were the best I have ever had. I can’t wait to go back.

The potato side was a little oily. Salad was decent but too much iceberg lettuce. Our server Nancy was excellent!

First time at Johnny Manhattan's and what a treat. We order the deep fried calamari as an appetizer and it was the best! It was lightly breaded, not oily and the calamari was not rubbery. The portion they gave you was a nice size and plenty for the two of us.

My husband ordered a steak and I ordered a pork entree from their menu. Both of our dinners were outstanding and we had plenty left over for another meal.

The service was wonderful, thank you Julie for taking such good care of us and the atmosphere was very comfortable. We really enjoyed ourselves. We will definitely be back. We have heard great things about their pizza, can't wait to try that.

Reservation made for 8pm didn't get seated until 8:45. Ordered the scallops they were not properly cleans so it was a sand filled disaster, my SO rib eye was really fatty, not what I would of paid that much for. I am giving them a break for 6 months maybe a year. They went from outstanding to sub-par.

We had a table for 9 in the side room. There seemed to be a long gap between ordering our food and when it came to the table. Baked potato was dry and food was overpriced for value.

We had a lovely time and enjoyed delicious foods, some with plentiful portions.
Noah, our server, was very entertaining and attentive, and strived to insure our
meal and experience was to be a good one. This was our first time to the restaurant
and it won't be our last!

We enjoyed a delicious meal at Johnny Manhattan’s on Saturday night. Wow! I was blown away by the supper club vibe in the north woods atmosphere. Our server Margo was perfect for our group of eight. She was attentive and quippy, an ideal person for our crowd. Drinks were a little pricey, but the food was worth every penny. I hope to be back again for the next special occasion!

Great ambiance and service! Disappointed with my scallops and risotto. The scallops were a little overdone and the risotto was crunchy. My daughter's chicken sandwich was greasy and bland. My son and husband liked their ribs.

Will definetly try it again. Service was excellent, food was very good. One of the appetizers was over done, the prime rib a little dry and lacking seasoning, for my tastes. However, I'm going to give it another go, just maybe try something other than the prime rib.

It’s a cozy place with a great wine selection although their champagne offerings could be better both by the glass and the bottle. I had the seared tuna appetizer which was delicious although the lamb chops for my main course were cooked unevenly - half the rack was well done and the other was raw and it was missing the Demi glacé. I ordered it medium which was disappointing as I did not enjoy my meal. Perhaps I’ll go back and give it another try.

We hadn’t been in quite awhile so decided to give it another try.. and are we glad we did!!
Extremely good dinner.. I had the fish special- grilled Char. It was cooked perfectly and the presentation and vegetables they paired with it were perfect!!
My husband had the pork choose with the roasted rosemary potatoes and creamed corn- again outstanding and the side dishes were super yummy!!
Our waiter Chewy ( Jesus) took excellent care of us and was very attentive and helpful..

I love that you can now get a reservation on a Friday night. Our wait was minimal and we were able to get a seat at the bar while we waited for our table

Wonderful dinner experience! Thanks

Unbelievable service. If you can get Kelly as your waitress, you will be fortunate. The food was outstanding we each had a different entree, And every single bit was good. You must have the fried deviled eggs as an appetizer!

This is a consistent performer in quality and service. Management is highly engaged which is apparent in the quality of both. Ribs are to die for. Steaks are outstanding. And the pork chops are delicious and oustanding. Salads are fresh and robust. We've been here many times over the years and we'll return. The one thing I noticed this time, that I don't recall from past visits, was that the server wouldn't split bills by couple. Most places do. I was going to order 'up' meaning I was going to order higher priced items and appetizers. But this makes dividing up the bill later cumbersome - so I ordered an entree similar in price point to others. You guys missed making more money. The server's resistance meant a lower tip based on the bill.

Great atmosphere. Bar is huge and the Old Fashioned drinks were great! We ordered the fried deviled eggs as an appetizer. They tasted fabulous. Very unique! I had the scallops with Risotto and others enjoyed the filet mignon. We even shared a grasshopper and golden Cadillac ice cream drink. We will be back soon!
