Great ambience and service! My husband and I stopped in before a show at the Kirby center, the place was not that busy, we got to sit in the vault room. We had our private dining experience! Wednesday is $1 oyster night, a great deal- the oysters were huge!

This is always a perfect experience. Manager Jesse and his entire staff go out of their way to make every visit perfect. And the food! I wish I could have their bone marrow appetizer every day. There are good restaurants around in the area but none are better than this, by far.

Everything about our experience here - every time we go - is exemplary. This is not hyperbole. The food is exemplary, served with much grace and great pacing. It’s one of the few restaurants on the planet where I know I have many choices to struggle over on the menu. The bone marrow is to die for!! You will never be disappointed here.

We enjoyed LMB for date night. The good was very good, and had authentic French selections. Would be nice to see the menu in French/ English to add to the cultural experience. Otherwise had a great time, the ambience is particularly nice.

Incredibly wonderful food and great wine list. We were however very disappointed in our waitress. The servers working with her were great. Seems she had larger tables where she knew people and spent a lot of time chatting with them and not paying attention to her other guests.

The butternut squash soup was very good as was our wine section from the special bottle list. The dinners my wife and I had, both pasta dishes, were average at best. They both lacked any flavor. My dish had a lose sauce that made it difficult to eat. My wife’s dish was supposed to have lump crab meat but she only found a few small pieces.

My husband and I were staying at a lovely bed and breakfast only a few blocks away from this restaurant and decided to have dinner at LeManhattan. What a GREAT choice we made... The food was outstanding. The French Onion soup was one of the best I have ever tasted ~ the chef obviously put a lot of love and time into its preparation. My husband ordered the Martini Seafood ceviche which he thoroughly enjoyed ~ ingredients were fresh and tasty. Instead of a dinner entree I ordered the Red Beet and Truffle Goat Cheese Ravioli in a brown butter sauce ~ it was DELICIOUS! Also, highly recommend La Bouillabaisse that my husband said was perfectly prepared. We consider ourselves to be foodies and usually find ourselves critiquing restaurants. LeManhattan Bistro exceeded our expectations. Thank-you also to the lovely servers who made sure our evening was a lovely one... We DEFINITELY suggest that you put this restaurant on your list if you are ever in Wilkes Barre.

Went for Sunday brunch and ordered the eggs Benedict with smoked salmon. My meal was absolutely delicious and was so full I couldn’t finish all of it. Our waiter was very nice and timely with everything. Would love to go back to try out their dinner. I saw somewhere that they are byob but they had liquor so I was able to order a drink.

This was a true dining experience that I look forward to enjoying again soon. The food was beautifully prepared and presented. It also had a variety of interesting selections to choose, hence my need to return. The service was as you requested not set by the servers who if you wanted to hurry I'm sure they would accommodate and as by my request a leisurely, well-paced dinner. The noise level was a pleasant tone which lent itself to conversation. A true gem in the area.

We all ordered French classic dishes and all were excellent. Only negative was that there was virtually no time in between appetizer and entree courses, and dessert portions were on the small side. But all staff were very helpful and made for a wonderful experience. We will definitely come again.
