I am so happy with my customer service this evening! We were served quickly with a smile, and the drinks were amazing. Drinks were served by a girl called Molly and she was so delightful. Thank you so much for a lovely night!

Awful service , staff looked clueless about covid service. Poor menu choice. Left before ordering as service was so slow and staff looked uninterested. Wasn’t too busy

With an expertly cultivated wine list (including a great selection of wine by the glass) and an always interesting menu, Manhatta is one of New York's most exciting dining locations. 60 floors high and with breathtaking views of the lower Manhattan and the Brooklyn Bridge...the food is quite accomplished. In theory the menu leverages itself against dishes that, on occasion , might slightly fail to fully deliver. There is a pronounced preference for, fresh, seasonal and even raw ingredients over anything more obvious. The starters in particular are very much predicated on absolute freshness and preparation leaving hardly any fault tolerance for failure and customer satisfaction. This slight risk may explain the occasional bad review posted here. Hence when Manhatta is good its incredible. This being my third trip I can attest however to only very slight variances in excellence hence why I am giving it 5 stars. I have the service as being almost flawless on all 3 trips. A well oiled operation from front to back of house. Pictures posted below. The bar is sensational - the views are other worldly - worth the trip alone imo. Compared to the outrageously mediocre restaurant at the One World Observatory Manhatta is many many leagues more advanced, civilized and professional. In particular the expertly crafted wine menu (with sensational food pairings available) is a testament to the restaurants commitment to great and simple fine dining without any of the unnecessary pretentiousness at a pricepoint not be found elsewhere in NY.More

This one of those places you just whip out the AMEX and go. Breathtaking view, wonderful atmosphere, great service. Must be a small freight elevator because the portions although delicious were a bit small for the price.

Without a doubt, the best restaurant in New York shared with friends. The impeccable foie gras deserves an Oscar. Incredible views. We will be back, thanks for everything

We've been there in October 2019! The welcome is ok and the greatest part of our dinner was our time at the bar. The service was ok. The sommelier and bartender were great, but we couldnt have 5 min of peace without being annoyed by...the waitress. The scotch snail were disgusting. The octopus gnocchetti were a novelty for us, good but not wow, The wagyu was overcook and the side dish/sauce lacked of research. The halibut was a fail. A mix a flavor in a boring broth. The soufflé undercook with an artificial strawberry taste. All of this for the same price of a 1 michelin star restaurant the night before. Go for a drink, not for the foodMore

Had dinner with friends and family for my daughters 16th birthday, it was fantastic and I can’t recommend it highly enough, the set menu is varied enough for everyone and very tasty, great drinks menu, we tried most of the menu between us and everyone...was thrilled. The views are brilliant as it’s on the 69th floor and gives a great backdrop to the restaurant, they even have an iPad that you can use to change the colour on the top a building which is fun.More

I’m starting this review with what I found to be a really off putting part of the Manhatta experience. Open kitchens in better dining establishments are increasing and need not be a negative. However, here the cooks/ chefs bellowed the announcement of each dish as...if the order had been placed at a roadside diner. I was disappointed to discover that the prix fixe lunch with wine pairing is only available on the weekend. Our waiter wonderfully arranged with the chef to prepare and serve an entree(duck) which was not on the menu. It is refreshing that the level of service is so high at a restaurant where tipping is not a separate element of the bill. Each staff person we dealt with was personable and professional. The food was, mostly, quite good with the exception of the snails. Nestling the snail in the sausage was poorly executed. The sausage (which was greasy) stuck to the pan so that I ate the snail itself and then scraped out the sausage”wrap “. I recommend offering the snails in a traditional herb butter sauce by themselves. Everything else that we ordered was nicely plated and interestingly prepared. And, of course, you can’t beat the view!More

The restaurant is stylish. So smart attire with jeans would be fine. Leave your sloppy T-shirt for another day.

No jacket required. Most diners were in business casual or better. This isn’t a criticism but we did see a few patrons in shorts and t-shirts (this was August). It appeared that the staff deliberately put them at tables in... More
