Had a reservation for two. The place had several empty tables but they put us in a tiny table next to the bar. No plans to go back.

My wife and I stopped in with friends for dinner - and my experience was very similar to our last dinner there. The restaurant has an interesting location that makes it a fun, though expensive, destination for lunch or dinner - and the food is generally delicious. On this occasion, our steaks were perfect - tender, flavorful and expertly prepared.... More

My friends and I enjoyed lunch at Mankas Steakhouse. This time of year, it's a nice little drive out in the valley surrounded by green rolling hills and farmland. We ate inside since it was a bit too chilly for us to eat out on the patio. We all chose the sirloin and green salad, and it was tender and... More

I liked the simple interior decor and the white starched linens even for lunch on a Saturday. We each had lobster bisque, I drank water and my husband had one cup of tea for a total of $30 plus tip. The very tasty baguette was warmer than the bisque. The presentation of the bisque was nicely done, and I have... More

I was pleasantly surprised by my meal here. Being a bit of a Bay Area food snob, I didn't expect a remote restaurant on the outskirts of Fairfield to have so much to offer, but lunch here was delicious. It was a stormy day, so there were only a few tables taken, which made for a quiet, relaxing meal. The... More

I had a lunch meeting here this week. Service was very good although the salads took quite a while to arrive at our table. Try the beet salad if they have it as the special.

The soup, salad, and Molten Lava Cake were excellent. The lamb was great, but I wasn't thrilled with the red pepper polenta or the apple crisp. The waitress was fabulous, and I loved the local Albariño wine.

6 of us headed out for dinner, made a reservation and arrived on time. They wanted us to sit at the table 3 feet from the door, I said no. So we waited a bit and got a nice table downstairs. We had 2 waiters, they couldn't figure out whose table we were. Started with apps. The whole board (cheeses... More

The food is good, but not worth the price. The atmosphere is a bit pretentious, but once you get over that, it's an enjoyable location. The wait staff was a bit uptight, but eventually loosened up after we ordered. The bone marrow is fantastic!
