Smaller than I thought it would be. It’s connected to an office building and there was a housekeeping crew vacuuming while we were eating which was loud. The bartender finally closed the doors to the building which helped. Food was pretty good. Small portions. Had the lemon cake for dessert which was yummy! Overall not a bad place to go for a drink or a light dinner...

The drinks were really good. Food was good but overpriced for what was offered- the amount of food for the main dishes were as small as the appetiers. Overall it was okay but I wouldn’t go back a second time.

Total disappointment. We spent $100 and got $50 worth of food and drinks. It felt like they were cutting corners everywhere.

We ordered a whiskey sour and old fashioned, both of which were watered down with tons of ice and weak. One had a real maraschino and the other a fake.

The bruschetta with bleu cheese tasted nice but were ridiculously small.

My partner had the French onion soup and it was more like an onion broth soup with some onion floating in it. It wasn't rich and delicious like it should be. It was so flavorless and no crouton, just a piece of bread floating in it.

He got the $34 filet and it was the cheapest cut we've ever seen. I don't think it was a filet mignon at all. It was thin, dry and not seared for flavor. They clearly didn't let it rest either. The potatoes were under cooked and the tomatoes were clearly from a can.

The lobster roll was fine just too rich. Half way through I had to ditch the bread because of how much butter there was. The German potato salad was good but the portion was soooo small.

Two hours later and we were so hungry from the meager portions, we went to Whataburger. I wish we went to Redrock instead. :(

We also were seated next to the window with the sun beating in. It was so hot and uncomfortable.

My friends had the filet, and while it was cooked properly, it wasn’t seasoned well. I had the scallops, they were very good, but just a touch over cooked. The appetizers & the summer pasta was delicious.

I had the Summer Saute a few weeks ago and it was delicious--this time it was terrible--totally dry, no sauce and overcooked shrimp. Love this place so will go back anyway.

Food was delicious. Unfortunately, the other aspects left much to be desired. Service was fair -- water bottle/glasses never filled, had to take check to counter for payment as server never returned to table to get our credit card. Server seemed to have limited knowledge of menu and was preoccupied with larger "bride-to-be" party. Our special occasion (44th anniversary) was never referenced, despite notation in two different places on our reservation. The sun beams in the western windows for about an hour (very warm and difficult to see if facing the windows) -- shades are definitely needed. Recommend the food but restaurant needs to take care of the details that make guests comfortable and appreciated.

Great night here- from drinks to dinner, everything was wonderful! Short on wait staff that night, we had the pleasure to be served by the executive chef, Disty Simpson. Lucky for us!! The specialty, crab cake, as an appetizer was very good. It has a bit of spice, but not overwhelming. Paul had the Love’s risotto, filled with shaved ham and fresh vegetables. Delicious. Kathleen ordered the beef medallion special with mushrooms. Fantastic!! This place a cool vibe, and the Raven statue out front is fun. The Manhattan drink list is impressive. Too boozy for me, but the wine list was excellent, as well. Next time we are in town we will be back!

Excellent food and drinks, Aaron was a great server, and the place was quiet, even for a Saturday night. If you want a nice place to splurge a bit, and not feel too stuffy or crowded, this hidden gem is worth a look.

I was very disappointed the chicken added to the Caesar salad was boiled chicken and not grilled and did not have much flavor. My husband had the lobster roll and said it was amazing. Limited menu.

Our third time there. It was pretty disappointing this time really. Poor cut of tiny grissly steak ordered medium came out rare, sent back and came out charred and still rare. I should have asked how big the filet was but certainly didn't expect what was served. They said 5.5 oz. They apologized about it. Not sure we will go back again really.

Was our first visit a new discovery for us—had drinks and the Salmon feature of the evening—- delicious. Was a quaint little place — with good drinks n Plenty of TV’s also. Convenient to the civic center — nice to park once and then walk to our venues
For the evening...

We love Manhattan and probably just got a server having a bad day. It took almost half an hour to get our drink order. We were about half way finished with our dinner when we overheard the restaurant had some dinner specials that night she never mentioned. We will give it another try.

My husband and I tried The Manhattan because we are big fans of Rocco. The menu is basically the same as Rocco, but with an emphasis on the Manhattan cocktail. The food and service were good, but will just go to Rocco when we want a delicious crab cake.

Small, casual atmosphere; seats about 40. Excellent service. Great to stop in before Philharmonic. My friend and I split the salmon which was the perfect portion for us and it was delicious. Owner came to our table for a chat since we had mutual friends. I also visit his other restaurant, Rococo's in Northpark

first time there, and all in all we were pretty pleased with it. Dinner early on NY Eve prior to the Thunder Game. My wife's filet and lobster were superb (she said), and my Chicken Parmigiana was pretty pedestrian really. Although the restaurant was only maybe 60% occupied, they seated us at the left end of the bar where we had constant traffic and a big guy standing up at the end bar seat and bumping us. I didn't understand that because there were at least 5-7 tables that would have been better. Maybe it had something to do with servers, don't know. Anyway, I would go back, it is nice to have another nice restaurant downtown. It does not compete with Mahogany, but it is a nice alternative.

The steak was so tender and done to perfect medium rare. My husband had the pork chop and loved the fig jam. The people at the table next to us were having the lobster roll and that looked tasty, so we are planning to return.
