I have high hopes and expectations from this restaurant,due to alot of raving,praise from customer,sadly to me its not,First,I ordered the deviled egg,It was good,that is yhe only thing I liked really,sorry ,but not sorry,second The crab cake,taste like canned crab meat,And taste old,not delicious,I do not know where is the raving all about???I guess its not for me,nothing special,yucky I would say,doesn’t taste freshness at all,my main entree is the smoked pork belly,the only I like about it is the veggies,the grits I’m not into it,it ok,the pork belly looks like a thick cut bacon,its sooo hard to eat and very chewy,when I say hard,I’m referring to the pork belly,hard as a rock ,it’s un edible,I can’t cut it with my knife, I can’t barely chew it at all,And the drinks horrible so strong ,and for my husband meal,the top sirloin,if I remember it correctly,It’s OK,

The food was really excellent, but a little more on the expensive side. We ate there for dinner on New Years Eve, which is also why it could've been on the expensive side. They were out of the cheapest dish (Chicken for $24 or $25), so we both got lobster linguini for $38 & it didn't come with any type of side. It was just the pasta dish, which is why I thought it was more on the expensive side. I thought the portion was fine, but my husband thought that the portion was more on the small side. He said he was still slightly hungry after finishing. The lavender sour I had was AMAZING and not super sweet. He had a Manhattan cocktail and he said it was really good. Overall, it was a very good meal and the atmosphere was very cozy. Just be prepared/expect to pay a little more for the food, and again it could've just been because we ate there on New Years Eve. We will be back!

Requested a special accommodation and set a reservation. When we arrived the accommodation was complete but seated between the only two occupied tables in restaurant and without a way to reach table. Good and service were good otherwise. Unfortunately did not meet expectations of reputation to accommodate party.

My husband and I had dinner at this restaurant. It is a small restaurant which makes it nice in many ways. I had the lobster roll and my husband had the crispy pork belly. We loved our meals. My only complaint would be to serve a bit more cole slaw with the lobster roll as I prefer that side to fries. The next time we are in OKC we hope to dine there again.

We made reservations for my birthday. We were seated and waited and waited and then waited some more. They were busy so we tried to be polite and not wave around to be served but after 30 mins and half the tables emptying and several tables being seated well after us and seeing them get drinks and food I finally waved someone down. After doing that we got our food and drinks quickly. The other tables seemed to get food quickly too, so I assume their service is normally fast unfortunately we just fell through the cracks. They did give us a complimentary dessert, which is normal for birthdays at most restaurants I think. Good food and our drinks were well made. Price was lower than I expected as well.

Great little downtown bar and restaurant. The wife and I decided to grab drinks and dinner before heading over to The Criterion for a Friday night concert. The Manhattan OKC was busy, but quickly seated us for our 6pm reservation. Happy hour was still going strong, but the drinks, food and service was excellent. We will definitely be back for another date night.

My wife and I made a reservation for dinner at The Manhattan OKC prior to attending a Thunder game. It's a nice, modern and simple décor with clear emphasis on the bar. It's a small location that somewhat to our surprise had few customers.

They offer a limited dinner menu and based on our waitresses recommendation we opted for the crab cake appetizer and the lobster roll entrée. The crab cake was on the menu at "market price" which our waitress said was $22. The lobster roll came with a side and our waitress offered French fries, chips or side salad and we opted for the salad. My wife also ordered a mixed drink.

The food was decent although not great, and we thought the servings were small for the price. Our main disappointment came with the bill, which priced the crab cake at $24 and also added a $2 upcharge for the side salad. We questioned our waitress who simply confirmed the pricing and took our payment. We recognize it was only an additional $4 on a bill that totaled $68 before tip, but the little negatives just kept piling up and really detracted from our overall first experience here.

We did enjoy the free garage parking courtesy of Manhattan. All things considered however, we don't expect to return and can't recommend them with so many other downtown and Bricktown options from which to choose.

We had dinner and drinks on the patio at the Manhattan this week before attending an event at the Civic Center. Bryce was an excellent waiter but later when the place filled up he was running to take care of all of us. (They were short-handed due to an unexpected large crowd.) We shared several small plates, but especially loved the crab cakes. We will definitely go back sometime soon. We actually left our car on the street in front of the Manhattan and walked the 3 blocks back and forth to the Civic Center.

I hate to write a bad review, but it was a real disappointment overall, although the staff was nice.

The venue is very small, and my meal wasn’t anything great to write home about. In fairness, perhaps a different selection might be better. We had deviled eggs as an appetizer and they were okay, but nothing great. I had shrimp linguine for an entree. The noodle mixture nothing special and the shrimp tasteless and tough. I had cheesecake for dessert and it tasted and looked like something straight out of a box.

We try different restaurants in the metro on a regular basis, but probably wouldn’t make the Manhattan for a second go.

As most restaurants these days, the Manhattan was understaffed. No fault of theirs, but we were on a tight timeline to get to the Civic Center Music Hall for a performance, and they had only 1 cook and 2 servers. Had to forego dessert; it was my mom's birthday! But they made it up to us by comp'ing one of our meals. Very nice staff--just too busy.

Waitstaff was inattentive. We asked for drinks and 10 minutes later we walked to the bar to get them. We were asked if we wanted dessert, answered no. Again 10 minutes later we had to go to the bar to get our ticket. Then we returned to the bar to pay our bill. I understand short handed wait staff. But they were laser focused when walking and never looked at the tables or people to see if they needed anything. That being said the food was dynamite…

The Manhattan OKC is worth a shot. With better service, we would have easily given it a 5-star review. The food quality and taste was outstanding, from apps to salad to entrees to dessert. The cocktails overall were very good, maybe a tad on the weak side. While the service in general was decent, there is no reason to bring a salad meant to be split for two to the table at the same time as the entrees and completely forget about another guest's soup. They seemed to not pick up on the fact we were in no rush at a time the restauarant was not particularly busy. Pricing was reasonable with some decent Happy Hour specials. Again, because of the food, we recommend you give it a try and hope the service level rises to the quality of the food.

Good food. Server did not know what Belvedere vodka was, so that was a bit strange. Also we order 12 oysters and were served 6, only charged 6 so I assume it was a misunderstanding. The server seemed uneducated on the food and drinks but she was very nice and was attentive. Would recommend to friends for sure.

Man I was so excited to try this place. I know it's not new but it was my first time. Our first choice was vast but apparently they closed at 1. Man horrible service. I mean dang we were 1 out of maybe 3 tables for lunch. Seriously hospitality has gone down hill! Sad because we are in the industry and we try to always pay it forward but unfortunately service fell short and not because they were busy.

What a wonderful restaurant! We enjoyed our meal at the Manhattan! The oysters and steak for delicious! The waitstaff were very friendly and attentive. We appreciate the military discount and the manager thanking my husband and my dad personally for their service. When we are back in town, we will certainly eat here again!

Brought the main course out in front of the salad course and had to be told that it was not acceptable. Took an order for steak without asking how we wanted it prepared. Had to ask for silverware. Not acceptable service for the level of dining anticipated.
