The Manhattan is the type of getaway where you can enjoy a nice variety on the menu, great bar selections and a friendly crew. The outdoor seating is the icing on the cake. Music completes the overall ambience.

We have been coming here since the beginning. Drinks have always been tasty and generous on the alcohol. Yes, there was a time during a change in management where the food quality really lapsed. That time is over. We are foodies.... And after this visit we are giving Manhattan an A+. The wings were crispy and delicious. Sliders were perfect... More

We have been here several times, we live in Minneapolis and each time we go to Tampa we make sure to hit this great place. We were looking for a place to have a drink or 2, eat and listen to music.. We were happy with all the above. We don't have many places in Mpls that have live music... More

Three years ago my husband and I got engaged here, it was our favorite date place and the food was amazing. However that is no longer the case. The food is horrible and the service is less than acceptable. They are always "between chefs" and i believe that is the reason of their downfall. Very sad, and had lost their... More

Although the waitress was fairly nice, the food was horrible. My stomach is hurting as I type this. I didn't think anyone could mess up a chicken caeser salad, but they did. After taking one bite, (which I shouldn't have bc it looked old) I could tell that the chicken was old and stale. I should have left after I... More

Not really fair for me to rate as the owner is a close friend but the menu always has a surprise and the service is nice. happy hour specials are the bomb!

Even with a Restaurant.com certificate worth $25 of food/beverages, we walked out before even ordering. Why? Several reasons. The restaurant reeked of cigarette smoke (people are smoking in the outdoor area of the restaurant and it must filter back inside). We sat down at a table and the waiter said, "Our menu is in transition..." and he then proceeded to... More

i had been coming here as a regular customer lately for about a year and was getting great service and food. During my last 2 visits, the food has declined and the service has declined considerably as they have different service staff that do not seem to care. The latest experience tonight was the worst I have had. I specifically... More
