Still my favorite steakhouse in the twin cities. I realize there are high end steaks in town but for a reasonable price you get a great steak with salad and veg for under $35 for top steak. I could go and just eat their toasted...More

I was expecting a higher end steakhouse. This was not it. I felt I was overdressed in dress pants and a shirt. Paper placemats. Salad dressing served in a plastic cup. Butter and sour cream in their plastic containers. Salad was uninspiring. My steak was...More

Feels like you've gone back in time. Nothing has changed in years. Still get the plate of radishes. pickles, celery, etc. before your dinner comes. Excellent food & a great atmosphere. Celebrated a birthday with an old friend & was perfect.

We were just here (my first time) with a large friends group. The good was amazing, the staff was on point and friendly, and the after party in the lounge was a blast! We will definitely be going again!

Mancini's has a great atmosphere - really reminded me of an "old school" styled establishment - very classy yet family-owned type of feel. The steaks were top notch - cooked just right and the garlic bread was awesome (esp. the pumpernickel style garlic bread). The...More

Large group of 9 was easily handled in this gem of a local steakhouse, the dated interior simply added to the authentic throwback vibe of the 70's and 80's. Our group within a group was in from the east coast for the Superbowl and all...More
