When you arrive, valet parking is available which is a nice touch; however, if the entrance is small, so if you do not prefer to deal with that there is parking nearby. The staff is very friendly and attentive. The food quality and portion size matches the price, which is upscale. Overall, this restaurant is perfect for business clients, date nights, anniversaries, or for just a random night out. You won't be disappointed.

The Halibut was outstanding. Great service. Manager came by our table twice to make sure everything was good. Nice touch. Nice wine selection. We will definitely be going back.

We've always loved The Mantel. We take out of town friends, go for special occasions, night out and even lunch. I was a little disappointed they took the baked Brie off the menu but the chef made up for it by sending a complimentary apporizer. Food is always good, service is exceptional and I love the small quaintness of the place. Noise level isn't crazy loud like most places nowadays.

A wonderful place for a romantic dinner or at least one where you enjoy delicious food, great service and an environment where you can actually talk to the person you're with and hear what they are saying. Mantel's is amazing and I highly recommend a trip!

Excellent experience. The food was outstanding. My wife said it was the best lamb she had ever eaten. My duck was excellent, rivaling any I have had in Paris. Amazing bread and dipping sauce. Relaxed atmosphere.

Our first time to eat here and the food and service was wonderful. Even the valet, Paul was delightful. It was very busy when we went on a Saturday evening but we were still able to chat easily with our friends. All together a marvelous evening and we would certainly go here again for a special occasion!

We enjoyed everything! Our waiter was knowledgeable and very friendly. The prices are kind of high, but the food was so good that it was worth it. If lobster was cheap, I would worry. I would recommend The Mantel to anyone who wants a wonderful meal and a beautiful date.

Went there this past Sunday night 1/20/19.

Bread came out not cooked. Pure dough in the middle. Waiter said he would get us a new one, I’m pretty positive they just threw the old one in the oven and gave it back more cooked.

Duck was supposed to be medium rare. It was pretty damn raw when I tried to chew it. My fiancé’s chicken Alfredo had noodles that were definitely not cooked all the way.

I won’t go back. It was a 50-60$ dinner that was a disappointment.

Well let’s start with the ice cold red wine that was decanted in a dirty decanter, no wine taste before the wine wine into the dusty decanter, next was the abomination of the beef tartare the was made in a food processor! Please don’t do that to the beef, dark, mineral, flavor from the meat being beaten and bruised. Lastly the bisque was super salty. That’s as far as I took this dinner that night, the bill was still 300.00 because I had selected a good bottle. Not sure what happened but it definitely missed the mark

We waited forever to actually order. We were seated, then asked about drinks. Then 15 minutes later, no drinks and was told the specials. 20 minutes later our drinks arrive. After ordering it took 30 minutes to get to our table. It was not busy, we were never made aware of the progress of the food.

We were a group of six. Everyone, but me, enjoyed their dish, drink, and the occasion. My dish (small beef filet) was undercooked, the vegetable was poorly done, but the mashed potato was good. I ordered a Manhattan, up, with a good rye. I got a thimble-sized drink in which thexwhiskey overpowered the vermouth—a poor version of a Manhattan, for $16. . .vastly overpriced. Because we have enjoyed The Mantel in the past, we will likely return, but I will have to think twice.

Over priced and poor quality of steak. They did offer a discount on the meal but the steak was suppose to be a new York strip and it was so tough that I had to saw at the steak to cut it. I had even asked them if it was a new York strip, it was as tough as a family steak. Which I still paid 40 dollars for mine alone with the 20 dollar discount given.

My salmon was overcooked and extremely salty, the risotto had no taste, even the green beans were awful. My husband's chicken was full of skin and also very salty. He ordered a side dish of mushrooms, the waiter forgot to include them in the order so when he realized it and ordered them we were half way through our dinner. Anyway when they arrived they were as tasteless and horrible as the rest of the dinner. We spent almost $150 for a lousy meal and a terrible experience. We would never recommend this restaurant to anyone and Open Table should be more careful about reviews.

It took 3 of us two and a half hours to get through dinner. We had to ask multiple times for water, bread, and our food took over an hour to come out. It was cold and over cooked as well. The waitress was MIA most of the evening. Awful and will not return.

Wonderful food -- my wife ordered french onion soup and it was too salty for her (she is a low-salt person). The chef came out and apologized, then he prepared a fresh batch just for her and it was perfect. My wife's Salmon was fantastic and my filet was cooked perfectly (rare plus). Also, the wine was terrific. We will be going back.

Wonderful! Everything was outstanding, Casey took great care of us as well as a multitude of servers. We started with the crab cakes and they were awesome, then were treated with some delicious bread and balsamic sauce. My boyfriend and I ordered scallops and the filet, with a side of lobster risotto. All I can say is I left very satisfied. I'm looking forward to returning soon.

Went for our anniversary date. Lobster Bisque to start was great! Husband had a lobster manicotti and liked it. I ordered a filet mignon. It was very tender and had a good taste but was over cooked from what I ordered. Dessert was very underwhelming. My bananas fosters was not like anything I've ever had and I've had it at Brennan's in New Orleans! Bananas were still raw and soaked in rum. And there were three massive scoops of ice cream. We had high hopes for the restaurant, but if we're in town again will try something else.
