Contemporary American
Manzke Restaurant is a Michelin-starred restaurant by its namesakes—Chefs Walter and Margarita Manzke—which draws inspiration from cultural intersections both local to Los Angeles and abroad. The heterogeneity of Southern California is given life through influences from Latin America, Asia, and Europe, with product-driven, hyper-seasonal ingredients sourced from the finest purveyors available. Manzke builds on the chefs’ deep culinary roots; a culmination of decades of experience coming to fruition in their most ambitious and refined restaurant yet.

Manzke was awarded one Michelin Star in 2022 and 2023, in addition to earning the Michelin California Cocktail Award, and since opening has been profiled in Eater, TimeOut, Departures, and The Los Angeles Times. In 2023, Chef Margarita was awarded Outstanding Pastry Chef/Baker by the James Beard Foundation.

We thank you for joining us and we look forward to curating the most extraordinary dining experience for you.

    It's a tragedy that Manzke is closing at the end of February. A restaurant this good shouldn't have to close. Everything is fantastic. The food is rich in flavor with a cocktail and wine list as close to perfection as possible. I'd encourage anyone who loves fine dining to enjoy Manzke while you can. Oh, and the butter is heavenly...

    I am absolutely over the moon with my experience. I shared with the restaurant beforehand that my wife and I have lost connection with each other and that I was desperate to roll back the clock and win her over again. They took my notes to heart because everyone went out of their way to make our night soooo special. I cannot remember the last time my wife and I had so much fun with each other. The food, the staff, the ambiance….. everything was absolute perfection. It breaks my heart to read that Manzke may not exist after this month. If that is true I’m glad we made it in before it was gone because I will forever remember this experience as the night that my wife and I found each other again. From the bottom of my heart…..thank you Manzke.

    Wonderful French cuisine with Asian influence. I enjoyed all the dishes, and the brioche with butter was spectacular. I took the $100+ glass of 2009 Bordeaux, and it was worth it :). Will probably go back.

    Food is fabulous and very consistent with the other restaurants of Chef Walter. Line up of food and choice of ingredients was superb. Be mindful though of tipping made a mistake in leaving in the amount of tip since I considered the LA-Labor Gratuity was part of the tip and what we provided was commensurate for the service apparently the manager didn't think so and he made us feel guilty that we did not leave enough for the service staff . On hindsight they should have explained the 4% tip was completely different and separate from the regular tip. Considering the cost of the food and labor my husband and I have been generous whenever the opportunity arise to acknowledge good service, since I do work in the service industry myself.

    The experience was amazing from the moment you enter to the attention given the entire time you are there. They made our evening one of the best, and definitely one for the books, so much that we will definitely be returning. My wife was extremely happy with everything, and that is the most important part. Definitely get the wine pairing with your course as you will enjoy some excellent wines, and enjoy each, and every wine brought out with all your courses.

    Some of the best food in LA did not compensate for the worst tasting menu experience I’ve ever had. After 90 minutes, we had two small courses and three glasses of wine. We spent $800 per person yet our wine glasses sat mostly empty even though we paid up for the most expensive wine pairing option. They use a Coravin “to protect the rare wine” but the pours are incredibly stingy—3 sips per glass. We literally had to order a bottle so we could have something to drink while we waited for the next minuscule pour. The service was ice cold and inattentive. We miss Maude

    A great start! Although most of the courses were excellent, I would have to say that the brioche was amazing and the placement in the middle of the various courses was perfect. Service was attentive. We especially appreciated the somm - Rasmus, who was knowledgeable, engaging, and the wine service was exceptional. He is definitely an asset to the Manzake Team. It was a delightful evening and would recommend!

    Had high hopes for this place given all the rave reviews since they opened and the owners' outstanding other restaurants. Overall I would say it's a fine spot for a special occasion (or an expensed meal) but given the value it is not on the list to immediately return to. A little more detail: Food: Everything was good, but our group agreed only 1/4 - 1/3 of the tasting menu that evening was spectacular (it apparently frequently changes, so we could have been less lucky). Compared to Mélisse and Providence though, we agreed those other restaurants had a much higher proportion of spectacular courses. Wine Pairing: Great selections, but by far the stingiest pours of any fine dining restaurant I have been to in LA (though surprisingly one of the servers topped off one of the larger pours - so this seems like it may have been an attempt to ration bottles for the evening). Also, this may have been user error, but it was hard to time the pairings and to know which dish they were for (e.g., with only 1-2 small sips per glass, you cannot really try the wine without food, but at the same time the team would bring an empty new glass and leave it on the table - so it was unclear if that was for the next or current course). Service: Outstanding. Staff were friendly, professional, and almost always watching (in a good way). I think this was the highest staff to customer ratio I have seen. One minor note: given such a high staff ratio, we were surprised plates were not presented simultaneously to all guests (this is very much nit-picking though and did not diminish the great service). Ambience: Brighter than Bicyclette downstairs but did not feel terribly special. The butter and herbs in the middle of the restaurant were a nice touch, but it was surprisingly difficult to hear our server explain the food and wine (half of our small table could not really hear her). Fairly certain it was the "acoustics" of the space.

    It was a truly remarkable experience experience. Each course was carefully prepared and brought out at the perfect time. And each course was better than the last and each all fit in their own respective order just perfectly. It was such a cool experience.

    The service was very attentive from the beginning, almost to an anal degree of clearing plates before we finished eating. The food was very good and all was enjoyable until the experience was altered by the female waiter/sommelier? Who stated that they do offer a small taste of wine before ordering a glass, so I asked for a taste of one wine and then she gossiped audibly in Plainview to her colleague about how annoying I was to accept her offer of a taste of a wine. This rude behaviour made us nervous and took away from the overall joy of the meal. When we addressed this with her she further patronised us instead of apologising, which did not help. Other than this very rude staff member, the experience was good
