We were really disappointed with our latest visit to Manny’s. Here we are in the midst of a highly contagious Covid resurgence and the restaurant not only didn’t check for vax proof but left us feeling like they could care less about the patrons. Neither Manny, nor the waitress nor the bus staff wore masks. Made us feel uncomfortable as it did some other patrons. Take note, if safety and concern for your health and wellbeing matter, skip past Manny’s. Because they don’t frankly seem to care. Albeit the food was delightful! 🤷🏻‍♂️

Manny has perfected french food for the Upper West Side. Drinks are terrific, wine list amazing and the food - oh the food! Best steaks in town and if you like duck as I do, you can't go wrong with the Magret! Service is impeccable and you feel like you are home.

Had steak frites.

The steak was inedible, not cooked properly and 50% of it was fat and gristle.

Yo the restaurant’s credit, they did take the cost of the steak off of my bill.

This was an enjoyable dining experience with the exception of our waiter pushing the specials relentlessly, and questioning my choice not to order the fish special like my dining companion even after I defended myself explaining I didn't like that kind of fish. It was peer pressure of a new kind. The reason for the push on the special was made clear in the bill: $45 for a piece of special fish, vs. $32 for my fish dish. Wow. Then we got peer pressured again at dessert time when we chose a dessert that also wasn't the special. Sacre bleu! If you go to this restaurant you will enjoy it, the food and ambiance are good, but do not feel pressured to order the specials or if you are interested ask for the price first.

Our first time for dinner and it was wonderful. They started with hot French bread and dual room-temp butter and chicken liver pate ramekins, both "comme il faut." We had superb pan-roasted salmon and trout almondine. Well-made cocktails and good wines by the glass. A perfect French neighborhood restaurant for people who love perfect French neighborhood restaurants.

Service was friendly, efficient with bread and pate immediately on table, water frequently refilled. Meal cleared after each course.

Manny greeted us and thanked us for coming.

Food was very nicely presented. Duck Ravi pasta was very good. Large shared portions

Food was very good. Service was as well. It was a bit cold near the door which opened and closed frequently to serve people at outdoor location. Also a little noisy for conversation but that’s because it is very popular.

I was appalled by the fact that no vaccination card was checked before entering the restaurant. Furthermore no server was wearing a mask.
Food was OK for the price .

Birthday party for 8 people was very well handled by our server and staff - seamless, well-timed and nicely served. The food was delicious and wine list great. They served our birthday cake beautifully along with candles and joined in the chorus. Overall, a great night at Manny’s.
