Great place to hear live music. food is excellent. service is great. have been here before pre-covid and will return again.
The evening at Manhattan's was a wonderful experience. I've been a customer since their beginning, and the new ownership has carried on that tradition. The food was excellent, the ambiance was top-notch and we had the pleasure of having live entertainment for the first time since the pandemic started. I definitely highly recommended enjoying the experience to anyone!
We had the most amazing dinner. Staff was wonderful and kind. A little rain didn’t stop an amazing meal!
will definitely be going back, bringing family and friends. I recommend to everyone and anyone
Food and setting is always great, can’t wait til they can hold customers indoors again.
Great family atmosphere and personable experience.
Absolutely love this place!
The food is so delicious, the environment and staff are amazing. We spent a very special birthday that was well worth it.
We had a great dinner of muscles, steak and pizza! This restaurant never disappoints.
My husband and I enjoyed our meals so much, as well as the live music! The owners are such kind and fun people. We will be back again for sure!
On this, our second visit to Manhattan's, we introduced some friends to this FANTASTIC establishment!
Our enthusiastic compliments to the chef!
As with our last visit the owners, Darrin and Maria made us feel like VIPs with their personal attention, Renée, our waitress, provided us with attentive service without smothering us, and if you enjoy dining with live jazz in the background you just can't go wrong at Manhattan's.
We highly, highly recommend!
Service and food was outstanding!
An amazing night of live music, amazing food, and friends! Thanks to the owners and staff for a great night.
Excellent service, great food and an overall great atmosphere! I plan on coming back and would recommend to anyone else
Amazing service and friendly staff. The only place I like to recommend for Live Jazz Music and Dinner in Guelph.
Great evening thank you so much. We'll be back soon for sure.
Wow, every time I eat here the food, the service, the ambiance gets even better. The wait staff are warm and friendly, the owners welcome you like they are welcoming you to their own home. The food is always fantastic. The Chef out does himself every single time. Clean, friendly, relaxing atmosphere. I would recommend Manhattan's to everyone I know and those I don't know. You will have an amazing time.
Great atmosphere, and the live piano/singer duo was fantastic
Came in for my wife’s birthday and we were very satisfied overall. The ambience/mood was quiet and intimate. We had the treat of seeing some live music: a pianist and singer who were both quite good, but we didn’t catch their names. Seated at the back of the room compared to the stage, it was difficult to hear the singer over the piano.
Our appetiser was perfect, we’re huge fans of charcuterie and cheese boards. The steaks were cooked to perfection. Given that it’s themed American, I wasn’t surprised to find only bourbon whiskies on the menu, but I’d still prefer a scotch selection for after my meal. I mean, scotch is readily available in Manhattan, so what’s the deal here?
The service was good overall, but I’m guessing the shifts changed midway through and our new server wasn’t nearly as attentive. She didn’t introduce herself or explain why she took over. We had barely finished our dessert when the hostess explained we needed to leave immediately as another reservation was waiting. Meanwhile, our server hadn’t been back to check on us and we didn’t get a chance to ask for the bill. If the food wasn’t so good, this rating would be lower.
I loved it when the band came up to some tables and gave us a chance to a request a song from them. Then they improvise and actually play the song for you!
Great service. Awesome food! Music was great as well.
Very nice restaurant ,food was great ..just felt that $32 for a half litre of wine and $50 for a bottle was a tad to expensive !!Service was good..but remembered the other owners gave out bread and flavoured oils as a free starter,not now.Woman singer and male piano player were good..helped to highten the ambience level.All in all...would return ..just the wine prices and the missing starter was disappointing.Could do better.
Fantastic Friday date night. with wonderful jazz. The mussels were magnificent,the arctic char divine and the creme brule so sublime. 5 Stars!
Our favorite place to go. Great food great staff great music.
Excellent service and there food was exceptional!! Definitely a new favourite
Very good experience. Food was great. Very good ambience
Perfectly run. Positive and comfortable atmosphere. Music/band was amazing. The food, phenomenal pasta and pizza! So glad we could help support a local business and gem of Guelph.
Did not feel that many Covid protocols were being followed.
My husband requested a great pizza for his birthday dinner so of course we went to Manhattans! With COVID protocols followed, we were seated at a great table by Darren -the owners husband.
Making sure we were comfortable, he sent Doug to take care of us. Drinks and dinner ordered, we were pleasantly surprised to find there would be live music - soft jazz piano and accompaniment. My husband had his “Sonny Rollins” pizza and was not disappointed. It was excellent as always. My mussels in a vermouth cream broth were amazing as was the Caesar salad.
Thoroughly enjoyed everything about our visit!
We felt safe and comfortable on a Sunday evening. We were well spaced and able to enjoy conversation with one couple.
We had a great time and the new owner and staff Kelly end Doug were amazing!!
We had a lovely evening.
Live entertainment was great ! Food was good and the service was very friendly
The staff and atmosphere is absolutely amazing! Great experience from the food to the music to the drinks. Definitely a must go-to!
We did not receive service for 15 mintures and did not receive our drinks till after we had been seated for over 25 minutes. Would not have minded as much if the manger was not sitting on his cell phone avoiding eye contact whenever he walked by. If you see your staff requiring assistance, then you should jump into help, instead of letting paid customers sit for 15 minutes waiting for service.
Hidden gem! Excellent food, amazing service and the best atmosphere. The live music was amazing and provides a perfect twist to a typical night out.
I can’t say enough about our fav restaurant!! We are never disappointed! The food is fabulous and the staff amazing! But the ambiance and music is second to none!
It was my first time there and I wasn't very pleased with the whole experience!
Best place in Guelph by far! The food, occasional live music, and staff are incredible.
As usual Manhattan's was the night out that we needed. Great food and a perfect amosphere for a night out that we needed.
Great place for date night. The food is amazing and the music is great.
What a great find! Awesome food and the music was superb. And the service was top notch, akin to something you would find in upscale supper clubs in Toronto, Chicago or NYC. Well done.... we will be back.
