    What a pleasant surprise this Restaurant was. The menu was varied. We shared two dishes. The Loco Moco sliders were delicious as was the garlic butter shrimp rice bowl. We will definitely visit Manelé again.

    The food was excellent. Drinks and wine choices were slim, many of them were not available. Wine was poor quality or corked. Service was very slow due to not enough employees. I feel as though if this restaurant can get their staffing and drink issues under control, they can be a success because the food was delicious!

    Loved the nachos special. The lemongrass chicken panini is out of this world! Was so nice to just relax on the patio with my dog, loved the pup cup.

    Thank you so much for the kind words. We’re very happy to hear that you and your pup had a great experience with us!

    Having never had Hawaiian food, I wasn't sure what to expect but the food rocked. Service was excellent, from the start to paying the bill. I got a pulled pork with a pineapple salsa and huli-huli sauce that was incredible. My sister got a smashed burger with double umami and my brother-in-law got macadamia nut pancakes. They both really enjoyed their food. Taking the wife...

    The hostess was very gruff and unapologetic when she couldn’t find our reservation, even after I showed her the confirmation email. Service was slow, but our server was very cheery and kind, and she was still fantastic. They seemed understaffed or not ready for the breakfast crowd. We sat outside, which was nice. The food prices seemed high in relation to portioning. The menus were inconsistent in what was available and unavailable. We will come again after a few months when they’ve worked out their kinks.

    I wanted to treat my best friend, who is visiting from Fla to something new and fun with great food and Manele succeeded at every level! We really enjoyed the food and the service was great! I have been telling everyone about it! Can’t wait to dine there again!

    We had reservations, but host seemed unsure where to seat us - seated our party of 2 at a 4-top that hadn't been wiped; we sat on the cleaner end of the table, with a clear view of the rather chaotic and not very clean back of house. Server took our drink orders pretty quickly; when they arrived, my guest commented that his canned beer didn't taste as good as that brand usually does. We eventually checked the expiration date, and found it had expired four months earlier. Waited a while for our food; when the host brought it, the blistered asparagus was cold, the jasmine rice was tepid and gummy, grilled salmon and ahi tuna were barely warm, and only the side of spinach was almost acceptably warm. The host eventually came back to check on our food, but by that time, we had had already eaten more than half our meal; we told them the food was underwhelming, and that we had the impression it had sat for a bit before being brought to us, but they assured us that this was not the case... Definitely not planning to return.

    I was a bit disappointed that all food was served cold, small portions for an expensive price, and the quality of the food and recipes made did not do Hawaiian food justice in my opinion. An overpriced diner at best.
