Food was uneven: appetizers were great (chicken satay and calamari), but my scallops entree had 3 scallops. The flavors were a bit odd.
Literally had to yell to be heard. Not my idea of a good place for a date.
Pretty good. Fun. Hipster scene. But enjoyed it.
Had the salmon poke and the tuna.
Loved everything about Twenty Manning Grill-vibe, food, service, decor!
Good tuna crisp and fish tacos. Server was missing in action continually.
Our first time at Twenty Manning. Restaurant was pretty full when we arrived a few minutes past 6 for our 6:30 reservation. We were seated promptly and greeted shortly after by our server. We started with an artisanal cheese board and chicken satay skewers, which were both good. As entrees, I ordered the chicken breast, which came with mashed potatoes and string beans. Not my usual choice, but in my opinion, the menu was limited. My husband ordered the tuna. Both dishes were fair. But for a bill that totaled over $100.00 with a beer each, I want more than just a mediocre meal. With all the delicious places to eat in the city, I doubt we will be back. I wouldn’t discourage anyone from eating here. The service was excellent and the restaurant had a nice vibe. But personally, there are much tastier restaurants in the city.
Cozy bar & dining spot located very close to Rittenhouse Square section of Philadelphia.
Great wine list & cocktails. Nice selections on the menu & food is delicious. This restaurant has a cool, vibrant , busy atmosphere. I am
a frequent diner!
The food was fantastic... well crafted, delicious and presented beautifully. The service was attentive but not overwhelming. My wife had the crispy tofu, and my son the burger, both were very good they said. My pork tenderloin special was amazing. My only complaint would be that it was quite loud, but that seemed to add a good energy to the room, as it seemed like everyone was having a good time.
Great food! Extremely creative “Everything Wedge Salad” that we have told all of our friends about. Oysters, short rib, fish tacos, steak and ravioli - all awesome. I must say the wine list is terrible, it needs to be scrapped and completely redone. 1/2 price wine on Sunday is great but only if the wine is good.
I went with a party of four, and we each got different appetizers and entrees (and drinks). Everyone loved the food for sure. The portions were gigantic! It was hard to finish everything. You might be able to order a starter for your main course, so check with your waitstaff!
Good food, lively atmosphere very attentive service w/o being stuffy. Reasonable prices. We will be back again soon!
Excellent food!!! Excellent service!! Tofu was the best!
Really solid neighborhood dining all around. Great service, food, ambiance, and value.
My fiancé and I had dinner reservations for 9 PM. Our waiter was great and then his shift ended at about 9:40 PM, prior to any food being delivered. The food and wine were really good, however, there was no one to check up on us after our food was delivered. No refills for wine and no refills for water for the rest of the night.
I realize that 9 PM is a late dinner reservation, however there were three other tables being served in the dining room and the bar was packed, so the place was far from closing. Also, a 9 PM reservation was not the last one available on OpenTable.
The worst part about the experience was the hostess taking out a dustpan and broom and sweeping around the tables surrounding our table. She probably saved the staff about five minutes of cleaning up after closing, so I don’t think it was worth bringing out the dustpan and broom at that specific time.
Great food and service! Loved the pork chop!
The food was exquisite without being pretentious. Recognizable but creative, healthy, flavorful and portioned just right.
Delightful restaurant, great ambiance, superb food and drink. Highly recommended.
I really enjoyed Twenty Manning. The food was very good and the service was excellent. I had to modify a dish due to a food allergy, and they substituted it with something from their sister restaurant. The fact that they would go to their sister restaurant for an ingredient to make my meal perfect really made an impression on me. I appreciated this level of dedication, especially because I would never request something like that from a restaurant. And of course, the food was amazing. Overall, I would highly recommend!
Superb food, friendly service, comfortable and cozy place to sit. We loved this place. The only way it could have been better would be it it were a little quieter.
Great local restaurant. Food is consistently delicious. Service is great. Our waiter was very attentive and friendly. We try to go there on a monthly basis. Highly recommend!
Twenty Manning is TOP SHELF; 1st Class & a MUST visit!!
My girlfriend & I were there (3-17-18) for our 1 year anniversary, as Twenty Manning was the first place we met & fell in love! The people, the food , the ambiance- everything about this place is fabulous!
Staff were courteous and professional. We were seated early, with no problem. I had the goat cheese ravioli, and my wife had the salmon. Both from the menu, and delish.
I’ve eaten here more times that I can count over the years, but it’s been a while since my last visit. The food is always good. But the one and only thing that I used to come here for was the escargots. They were my favorite thing on the menu and some of the best in Philadelphia. And I was sooooo sad to see that they no longer have them. It’s the one thing that kept me coming back.
New ownership has some new menu items, and the food was delicious. Service great. But it is TOO LOUD! My friend and I were sitting next to each other and could barely hear each other. So unless you love NOISE, this is not the place for you. Which is a shame, because the food and service were great. The new manager said he was looking into soundproofing materials, so maybe it will be better in a month or so. But as of now--what a shame!
Absolutely loved loved loved it!
Always a good meal. Served hot.
Attentive service and cool vibe make this a place to come back again and again. But please fix that first step when you walk into the vestibule! I told the hosts to get a camera installed for the shear comedy of it all. From starters to dessert, no flaws in quality and presentation. Only timing was a bit off among all diners at my table.
The new updated menu is outstanding. Loved the beef noddles, and the burger is still amazing!
We loved our dinner at Twenty Manning! Great BYO with wonderful service. We enjoyed the cheese board, scallops, chicken, sesame crusted tuna, and the Brussel sprouts!! Would definitely recommend and look forward to going back!!
Food and drinks were both amazing. Staff was attentive and courteous. I love the vibe if this restaurant, very comfortable and fun.
Great dinner after the matinee. It was fun to people watch out the front window. Service was excellent. The passionfruit martini had great flavor as did the lemon-drop I had later. My wife ordered the lamb special and it was incredible. A great meal.
We had a lovely Valentine’s dinner. Food and cocktails were excellent, as was the service.
Brittany was a stellar waitress. She went out of her way to make sure our experience was wonderful!!
The calamari is cooked perfectly!
Great experience as always. Food was delicious the wine was wonderful and the service was stellar. Plus Matthew and Rob always take care of us when we are there. 20 Manning is most definitely one of my favorite places in the city.
Consistently good food and service. Charming neighborhood spot. Fair prices and gracious hosts.
The wait staff was inattentive and the food was average. We pointed out an inconsistency with a cocktail and waiter wanted to go back and forth. Not a good birthday.
Food and service was phenomenal, great atmosphere, can’t wait to go back!!
Great food and friendly staff
