This place has dumped its original menu due to the pandemic and it's now a lame pizza and pasta place. That's fine, I understand, but they did not update their menu online, they just erased it. Therefore, one is to assume they have the same menu as before right? So we made a reservation and sat down only to get a menu full of pizzaria food and a $19 burger. No thanks! We walked out. They should have been upfront about the change. So sad that this place, once fit for foodies, is now a skelton of what it was, with a sad outdoor table that sits upon the leaning part of their parking lot in the back.

Very good food as always, though service was a challenge - especially when trying to get the bill to leave. Tables were too close together - certainly not in compliance with outdoor seating requirements (I could touch the nearby patron's shoulder). Thankfully we received discounted corkage pricing which was appreciated.

I made a reservation, but they weren't even open when I showed up. Very disappointed. Generally this restaurant is a favorite of mine, but I was not pleased that they accepted a reservation when they were not even open that evening.

Dining set up in an uneven parking lot. One heating lamp for the entire dining area...set up is make shift but fine since they are doing what they can.

But the quality of the food was poor at best. I can go into specifics but the overall food quality and taste wasn’t there.

They had outdoor seating set up next to the restaurant with an outdoor bar and a great speaker playing Christmas music. Our server was very attentive and even turned on a space heater right next to us. Cocktails and food were excellent. You should definitely check it out.

Menu is confusing. Been eating there since they opened but this made no sense. Pizza taste was killed by the weird pesto. Waitress/Bartender tried to pass off bottom shelf horrible bourbon as “high quality”.

Food was delicious, and they’ve done a nice job of creating an outdoor, socially distanced space. However, we made a reservation for 8:30 and arrived closer to 8:15. It became clear that we were the last table seated, and the staff was rushing to close. They kept saying things like “don’t want to rush you” as they were clearly rushing us, including taking away the other tables and chairs and delivering the birthday dessert while we were eating pizza. Please do not take 8:30 reservations if you want to close at 9:00.

I’d heard good things, but hadn’t had a chance to try their new pizza oven...had the pizza and calzone, both were really good and priced fairly for the quality of the ingredients and taste. Only complaint/suggestion is that the pizza could be a bit bigger.

We made reservations for a Saturday evening dinner. We have never visited here before and we’re looking forward to something new. When we arrived, there were several open tables and we asked to be seated under the shaded area. We were told that they were reserving the 4tops for larger parties with reservations and so we were seated at a two top near the bar. They brought out an umbrella so that we could be shaded, which we appreciated. However, in the next several minutes, as the restaurant began to fill up, they proceeded to seat a couple of parties of two at the aforementioned 4top tables. Not the end of the world, but also not a plus. Our server was very nice and attentive and had some nice suggestions about the menu. He told us that they had a new pizza oven and so we decided to share the mushroom pizza as a starter. The flavors were good, however, the pizza was undercooked. The dough was slightly raw in some places but we chose not to send it back. Our next course was the Caesar salad which was good. Finally, we decided to share the fried Parmesan chicken as the entree. We were told that the portion was quite large which it was. What we were not told is that it does not come with any sides such as veg or even pasta. It is literally 3 large pieces of chicken with sauce and some cheese and that’s it. Now, let me be clear and say that the chicken was very well cooked and seasoned and as promised, quite a large portion. What we thought was weird was that, that was the extent of the dish. If I had not shared a salad and appetizer and just ordered this as my main, I would have been stuck with a plate of meat and nothing more. I just thought it to be very odd. It was not clear on the menu, and neither did our server mention it.
Overall, this was just an ok experience. Nothing bad but also nothing really that great either.

This is the second time we’ve been since the pandemic. Food is awesome, we have yet to order one thing we wouldn’t get again.

The service is friendly and attentive. We appreciate the covid friendly guidelines and spacing between tables.

We’ll continue to come back and support this restaurant!

Very enjoyable meal. We shared Caesar salad and fried chicken Parmesan. The salad was tasty especially the croutons which were very crunchy yet juicy too. The parm was huge: 3 generous portions. The salad was also enough for 3. There was only one dessert which was an olive oil cake with berries, pistachio and ricotta. Lemony and buttery delish. Also easily enough for 3. Only thing I would suggest is perhaps another dessert option since Some people have more traditional palates (like my husband who wouldn’t even try it) when it comes to sweets. Well more for me then as I’ll be enjoying the leftovers. The outside setup is nicely done. It’s slightly on a slope but no big deal. Been wanting to go there for a while and definitely intend to go back. Especially as I want to support a small business that is involved with the community.

Most excellent dining al fresco! Delicious cocktails and dependable wine list as always! We had the Wagyu steak which was so juicy and perfectly seasoned. Those potatoes were fantastic as well! We also had the Branzino which was light and super delicious. And lastly the burrata and heirloom tomato salad was so fresh and beautifully plated. We paired it nicely with their homemade freshly baked and grilled bread. Overall, it was the perfect summer meal. Cannot wait to do it again!

I have to applaud this restaurant for making do with what they have. Turning their parking lot (overlooking a very blight looking lot) into a enjoyable dining experience is not very easy, and yet they have done a great job! Having "grass" on the ground, nicely spaced tables, TVs and a canopy with "windows" overlooking the now bamboo wrapped fence with tiki torches make it fun! Between the three of us, we had the margarita pizza, sea bass, chicken parmesan and the heirloom tomato and burrata salad. The pizza, salad and chicken parm were enormous and could've easily fed all three, and still take home something. Nice job!

Had our second post-Covid dinner at Manhattan House.
Dinner in their parking lot at sunset was actually a really nice experience. Everyone was happy to be there, guest and staff alike, which made for a fun, relaxed atmosphere. Food was great as always. This will continue to be our GoTo restaurant.

The dining situation is currently in their parking lot, which has a slight slope and not much protection from the wind in the rare times that we have one. That said, they're doing everything possible to make it a good space, and it is a very relaxing experience. The food is superb and modestly priced, staff attentive, and after two visits in a week we're ready to go back. .
