    I was celebrating my BDay. I started with a reservation for 6 and had to call to change it to 12. I actually spoke with Manny. This was my second time and I will definitely be back. The staff was gracious and efficient. Manny was there and I had a BDay dance. Thanks for a wonderful time.

    The food and service were very good. It's a pretty place inside, which was imperative because it was too hot to eat outside. One of my neighborhood favorites.

    This our 3rd time at Manny’s and it never disappoints. I had the trout almandine and it was delicious! Creme brûlée for dessert was the best I’ve ever had. Manny walks around and talks to the customers as they were friends. He also filled our Perrier glasses and said he hates seeing empty glasses. A class act!

    We were there early so the place was not crowded. We sat by the bar and the bartender was very nice and made excellent martinis, the food was good and the service efficient. I will go back.

    Everything was bland and desperately needed salt. The restaurant was uncomfortably hot and the ancient AC made no impact whatsoever. The place was overheated to the point that even the bottled water was lukewarm. Mediocre food and uncomfortable surroundings.

    Food was tasty (rack of lamb, mashed potatoes, asparagus) but despite a specific request by my friend to make sure potatoes were hot, they were not. Lukewarm at best. They did replace them, but it took a while. $42 for 4 tiny chops.

    We loved Manny’s Bistro. Nice atmosphere. Friendly & attentive service and the food was great. I had the halibut special…delicious. Oysters were great and loved that they serve U bread with butter AND paté which was a very pleasant surprise . I definitely recommend Manny’s Bistro and will certainly be back.

    Food was not so good as we have had in the past. There was music outside sponsored by the restaurant competing with piped-in music in our table area. Very distracting. Host also seemed too pre-occupied to talk with us.

    Was pretty good. Service was outstanding. Weirdly wouldn’t substitute a vegetable for orzo, which was in a separate dish, so wouldn’t impact the actual entree.

    The endive salad was terrific and so were the soft shell crabs. These were both specials and the server should have mentioned that the soft shells were $49. Great to have this authentic French restaurant in the neighborhood.

    Delicious, authentic French bistro cuisine. The onion soup rates an ooh la la! Delightful, friendly, caring staff. Their sidewalk dining structure is perfect for quiet, socially distanced conversation during these compromised times. Definitely a welcome new neighborhood gem!

    Waiter was very negative, could not understand him very well and definitely NOT service oriented. When we asked for another small pate which is free, he said there wasn’t anymore, but then came back with in. Overall, we were not made to feel welcome, overpriced for what u get. Food is standard fare.. nothing outstanding I used to go there a couple of times a month but no more. Owner was there but never greeted us.

    I’ve eaten here often and the food is very good, very dependable. My only small complaint is that the service is a bit slow. On this visit we ate out on the patio which was extremely pleasant. It gets a little noisy with passersby, but it’s also great people watching! Just as an aside, I miss quiche on the menu.

    It was such a beautiful day that I don't think they expected as many people eating out on a Sunday. They were out of stock of many entrees and an app. We were even told they were out of ice. Waitress was fab, but had to keep looking for someone to refill water and bread. But I'd go back in a heartbeat. Food was excellent.
