I said I would recommend but I have been before and found the food much better. There Caesar salad was great as were the cocktails I had the spaghetti dish and really did not care for you. As far as wait staff he was very friendly and knowledgeable

The entree portion sizes should be bigger to match the high cost!

We are from Buffalo NY and it was our first time at Manhattans. Everything was fabulous!! I absolutely loved the atmosphere, the piano music, and the outstanding, warm personal service!
I want them to open a Manhattan's in Buffalo. Our waiter, Jamie, has an extremely positive energy! He was wonderful and gave us great food suggestions. The musician and the owner's husband greet and talk with everyone at their tables. We will definitely be back and I'm hoping to book my daughter's graduation dinner there.

A coworker said he had the “best pizza of my life” so we decided to check it out. The Sonny Rollins and the Miles did not disappoint. Best pizzas ever! Mussels to start were excellent too. Live entertainment is an added bonus. Great little jazz club as well as good food. What more could you ask for. We’ll be back!

Overall we enjoyed our meal and experience, although there were many times we found our water not filled and when we asked for fresh bread, we were told it was in the oven, we watched other tables receive some but we never did.

Courteous wait staff and the host and hostess were always available to ensure good service. Limited menu - great if you want to try some unique pizza. A full house so the noise level made conversation difficult at times. Don put on a good show and we enjoyed the performance.

My friend and I have a tradition of dining at Manhattan's before the Baroque and Beyond concert series. This time we shared the charcuterie platter and the panna cotta. We enjoyed it all, especially the panna cotta! Your menu is always interesting, and seasonal. Thank you for a good dinner, again!

I have been coming to Manhattans for years now because of the excellent music and great food and wine. Now I come to Manhattans for the music, great food and wine AND the wonderfully warm and welcoming new owners, Maria and Darin. They make you feel right at home. As always, the music was great. Paul Taylor is one seriously talented piano player. Thank you for a fantastic evening!

We have been to Manhattans many times and we are never disappointed. The new owners are amazing! It feels like home. We went for our anniversary and the music was amazing. Paul Taylor- what an amazing pianist ! the soup special was parsnip and carrot, quite possibly the best soup we’ve ever had. You can’t beat the crust on their pizza. Dessert is also fabulous. Best kept secret in Guelph!

The soup, salad and pizza were as good as I remembered.
We normally appreciate piano playing - this was way too loud and not the right choice of background music. A lot of 'hammering'! Our table, right beside the entrance, was cold and drafty.

I would recommend to a friend. We really like the music at the restaurant most nights, but this time we had to shout to be heard at our table. That was tiring and made us decide to skip dessert and after dinner drink this time. Food was good as usual.

Everything was great, except our table was placed too close to the band/singer. It was very hard to converse and also the table was literally in the way of the servers. A better positioned table would have made the evening even better.

Very friendly owners took the time to come chat with us. Our Waiter was not too friendly/happy maybe he was not having a good day. Service was a bit slow to start with and to bring our drinks. Great singer/entertainment. Food was good. Caesar salad was amazing. I had the shrimp and scallop fettuccine which was good though the shrimps had some shell bits still on them so I had to be careful.

The food and drinks were great, the service was professional but a bit slow. Have to go through the service station to get to the washrooms which is awkward.

It was our first time there and we were celebrating our 5th Anniversary. We were given a complimentary glass of prosecco by the owner. The Ceasar Salad was the best I have ever had, anywhere, the pizza was so delicious as was the dessert. We didn't leave so much as a crumb on our plates. The live music was just the perfect volume, loud enough to hear it but not so loud that you can't have a conversation. The decor is warm and inviting. The restaurant is in a strip mall but once you walk through the doors that is forgotten. The prices are very reasonable. We will definitley be going back.

This is a hidden gem in Guelph. To have a restaurant that offers good food, service and music every night of the week, you can't beat it!
We have been coming to Manhattans for the last 8 years and it has never disappointed. Great drinks too!
We will be back again.

Fantastic place, very unassuming being in a plaza but we were pleasantly surprised! Can’t wait to go back. Fraser salad was to die for, nice selection of drinks and cocktails and all of the mains looked delicious.

I always enjoy my time at Manhattan's - it definitely one of my favourites. The service and ambiance was excellent, as usual. Thoroughly enjoyed the live music. They always have an excellent variety of wine and beer. I was pleasantly surprised to see a local brewery on tap. The menu has changed since I was last there and I was unable to find any of the items that I have enjoyed so much in the past. I found that the menu did not offer the variety that I and my guests have enjoyed in the past. Despite the menu change the food was excellent, as expected.
