The staff at Manhattan House really far surpassed our expectations in both service and food for Thanksgiving.

We always feel like family at Manhattan House, and the new crab pasta dish was one of the best things I've ever tasted - my favorite meal to date! Brava!

The absolute worst dining experience we have ever had. Service was very poor.wrong enters delivers. Corrected entrees were delivered with the check.Caesar salad was one of the worst. The menu boasted of Parmesan and anchovies it tastes like oil and vinaigre. We sat by the fire to be warm. The owner kept opening the door after repeated requests to keep it closed by the waitress and we had to get up several times during the “meal”. Never again and don’t be temped due to its proximity to the Redondobeach preforming arts center

Nice vibe. Decent selection of food.

Kinda pricey … hard to say whether that’s the post-covid effect.

2 drinks, 2 entrees, 1 app = $100 + tip.

Not crazy expensive, but somehow felt over priced for what we had.

A very quiet night on a Thursday. We had a party of 8 people. Food and service are great. Every time I go here and bring people, they love it. Yet it’s always empty. Go there!

Ate here with my family over the weekend. Easy to get a reservation. Service was attentive and friendly. Food was good, although the crusts on our calzone & pizza were a little overcooked. The bartender makes a fantastic Old Fashioned!

Delish food! Short on staff but the food was so good, we overlooked the lag in service. Our server slash bartender was able to be in two places at one time and did an awesome job. Our second time being here and it’s definitely changed for the better - and it wasn’t bad the first time. I can’t stop thinking about the fresh pasta made in house :)

Rissoto was so peppery it was actually almost spicy. I like pepper, but it was so incredibly overwhelming in the dish. Four of us all tried it and said "WHOA, holy pepper." Gnocchi were really nice in texture but very tiny in size, which is unusual for gnocchi and the sauce left a little to be desired in terms of flavor. Didn't try any but my sister in law said the chicken parm was just okay. Overall a cute place and nice for a more intimate and relaxing dinner, but the food was just okay. Our server was great. Very kind and provided great service.

From the outside one might think The Manhattan House is a local bar and hang out. Once inside its apparent that it’s all that plus an interesting place to have dinner. The fireplace burning and the smell of the wood fire oven gives the place a comfortable feel, sort of like a secret place where the « in crowd » congregates.
Drinks ordered - Italian wine and a hand crafted old fashion whiskey concoction
Wood fire margarita Napolitain pizza for pré dinner snacking - the tomato salad and Cesar salad both well prepared
Main entree - Squid ink pasta and roasted meatballs
Both good making one want to return to order more items from the rather limited menu

Their prime rib steak and fingerling potatoes - not noted on the website menu is fabulous. Enough for 2 two share with a salad. Cocktails and salads were great as well. Highly Recommend!

The food was mediocre at best. Pizza dough wasn’t cooked through, the chicken nuggets were more like cut up chicken cutlets, dry, and flavorless. The tagliatelle tasted like it was from a can. Service was slow, they forgot a dish, we didn’t get drink refills until we were done eating. Would not recommend, would not eat there again.

We had a really great dinner. The staff and server were great. The vegetable dish was awesome. The meatballs were so good--is it bad to describe a meatball as fluffy? No! it was fluffy somehow. I had the whole Bramundi fish--excellent, and wife had the gnocchi. Both were great. It has been a while since we went to Manhattan House, and super glad we got back there.

By far the best dining experience we’ve had in the South Bay in a while. The food was delicious. We ordered skirt steak, meatballs, salad, and a bottle of Paso Cab Sav… delicious! People sitting next to us ordered pizza, and that looked good too. We’ll definitely get that next time.

I enjoyed my pizza but was completely done with it before my husband got his meal and there was no apologies or "hey desert is on us". There menu is very limited so it could use a few more choices.
