    The serving staff were awesome, very personable and smart! Food was excellent, ambience was perfect. Only criticism is the tequila bar (upon entrance) server charged us $105 in US dollars for two Tequila drinks. He should have given us options at a lower price point, because of that I will have dinner again at Don Miguel but we will not go to the Tequila bar.

    Amazing resort and experience. Tip- make the 5:00 reservation and get lunch prices. Ordered the Mexican pizza and wish we would have only gotten one and shared it. So much food! The other entree and appetizer options seemed rather small. The atmosphere was worth every penny and we saw so many whales in the ocean right in front of us. Such a magical night!

    The venue is spectacular. The live music was outstanding. The service was 5-star. Sadly, some of our food was less successful … a ribeye steak was not of high quality and the accompaniments to the catch of the day (a properly prepared red snapper) were extremely spicy. For $300 per couple, the food should be better.

    We were in Cabo on a boat for the day and decided to celebrate a birthday by having a leisurely lunch at Din Manuel. It was perfect in every way, the view, ambiance, warm hospitality, food, drinks, just perfect. We placed ourselves in the capable hands of our server who guided us through the favorites and had a delightful time. Highly recommended.

    We arrived early to enjoy a drink and the band at the bar just outside the restaurant. The setting is gorgeous. The staff were all professional and friendly. It was a cool evening and we were offered wraps to keep warm- such a nice touch. The drinks arrived promptly the first round though a second drink never arrived (until we reminded them). Our reservation was rather late as this was all that was available but the restaurant didn’t seem very busy so we were a little surprised to be offered a table right in the doorway and had to ask to be moved to another empty table out of the door and with a nicer view. The service at dinner was impeccable and the food was absolutely fabulous- and for the food alone, I’d highly recommend. The last issue was that as the tables emptied out (and we were still enjoying dessert as were two other tables), the staff started to take down the other tables as though they were getting ready to close. It just felt a little odd to have the staff clearly preparing for close while the last diners had just been served dessert- not what I’d expect for a high end venue like this. And we truly weren’t “lingering”! We will come back again because the food was amazing- and shoot for an earlier reservation!

    Sooo disappointing! 7 of us tasted many dishes on the menu. Each one lacked flavor or taste. Didn’t taste like their description - didn’t taste at all. Creative presentations but for $1300 a terrible choice.

    Don Manuel 's was the best restaurant in Cabo San Lucas!! From the moment that we walked through the doors,we felt excited from the prestigious atmosphere. Everyone was so welcoming. They made me feel like a queen on my birthday. Finally the food was superb!!! My husband and I liked it so much that before we left we made another reservation! We both highly recommend that you definitely come here when visiting Cabo San Lucas!!!

    Impecable service at the Waldorf Astoria Cabo San Lucas. Mixed results on the food. My wife and I dined at both El Farallon and Don Manuel's during our recent visit to Cabo for a wedding. Overall, the entire staff at the Waldorf Astoria here are outstanding and very attentive. From remembering your name, to offering you a blanket when a bit cool out, they have a very service-oriented team. The ambiance at El Farallon cannot be topped. Awesome views cliff side. Food was a bit mixed. The appetizers and desserts were great. However, both my wife's Blue Fin and my Seabass were overcooked. We had a similar experience at Don Manuel's. Top notch service. My daughter and son-in-law joined us here. Again, the service was fantastic. Great wine selection. Some of the best soup appetizer we have had recently. The soft-shell crab risotto was perfect. Unfortunately, I had the same experience here with my Yellow Fin as the fish was significantly overcooked. In summary, the Waldorf Astoria is one of the best resorts in Cabo! You will not find better attentive service. The restaurants El Farallon and Don Manuel's offer fantastic ambiance and have a great staff. The food is very good at both, just might want to be clear how you want your fish cooked.

    The food was far less then expected. Staff was wonderful. Location and view was second to none. Just wish the food has been better. Only one of the 4 in our group was satisfied with their meal, and that was a hamburger. Food price was not on par with the enjoyment of the dishes.

    We got married at the Waldorf this past week and what an experience it was, especially the food at Don Manuel’s!! We stayed at the Waldorf Astoria and we were treated the best. We even caught fish one of the days and Don Manuel’s prepared it for us absolutely deliciously. The breakfast was also SO good. Every day it was a great experience. Will go back every time we go to cabo!

    Ambiance is great and very charming. The food was just OK, honestly the free bread and butter was likely the best part of the entire $600 meal. The ribeye was blah, nothing special and too chewy. Other entrees were small and just ok. Way overpriced for the quality in our opinion, won’t be back.

    Way too overpriced. Came on Christmas Eve and it was a fixed price menu for 150$ a person. The steak was the worst steak I’ve ever had - I didn’t even finish it (and I always finish steak). The fish and bread were good and the ambiance was nice, but nothing was worth the incredibly high price.

    Biggest Christmas rip off of the year. For such a beautiful and prestigious venue what an utter disappointment. The food was awful. Worse than awful. It was a Set Menu, and an expensive one at that. We have been here a couple of times before and were blown away in the past. We were spending Christmas 2022 in Cabo, which is why we decided to return for Xmas Eve dinner. We even sold our travel friends on this place. What an embarrassment. The cod and clams course you could smell coming across the restaurant. The roasted New York steak, you could not chew. Tough and tasteless rubber. Not even the 3 kids aged 4-6 would eat the “steak”. Unacceptable with a price tag of $150 US$/person and $70/US$ YES $70! For kids. The service however was stellar. Someone was always an arms length away. This hotel is breathtaking to be fair. So if you are looking for ambience this is the place. Let’s deduce this to the set menu. I hope that’s why the food was so terrible.

    Top-notch, elegant yet friendly, comfortable atmosphere. The Waldorf is a high end luxury hotel, and Don Manuel was fittingly first class. My only hesitation was the cost ($150/person for a fixed menu, plus drinks, which were very expensive). Yet, the food (especially the cod) and the dessert buffet were outstanding. Highly recommend!

    We loved another incredible holiday meal at Don Manuel’s. It has become one of our family’s favorite traditions. Service is impeccable…thank you Jesus and team! All of our dishes were delicious. Especially loved the chicken Barbacoa, lamb shank and catch of the day (sea bass). Truffle Mac and cheese is a great side. Make sure to save room for churros! We look forward to next year’s visit!

    We took our last family vacation together to Cabo. Both of my kids are married now and on our last night we chose Don Manuel’s because I’m a vegan. It’s a beautiful restaurant in a gorgeous resort. There was a band. The waitstaff was top tier. The food was really good. It’s very very expensive but we thought it was worth. the splurge. The service trailed off a little towards the end but the food was delicious. My vegan meal was beautiful and satisfying. I highly recommend this beautiful restaurant.

    The hostess allowed us to choose which table we wanted which was very much appreciated because there was a band playing. The band was very good but we didn't want to be too close to the loud music. Then our server was outstanding, explaining all the dishes very thoroughly that we inquired about, and checking back often to see if we needed anything. I highly recommend this restaurant!

The food tasted great and presentation just as phenomenal as the ambiance. Appreciated the bands unique Danzon like take on both modern and classic songs. Overall, we will be coming back many many many times.
