This is typically a great restaurant with outstanding food. I think that they were still finding their feet post Covid and the service was a bit slow and not all meals arrived at the same time and not all the beers on the menu were available which was a little bit frustrating! However I am sure that they will get this sorted over the coming weeks and would highly recommend giving them a try as I have dined there many times and always found the experience enjoyable.

Great food as usual. Good value. You pay for good food but price was not excessive.
Initially service was good in respect to food & drinks ordering & delivery. Needed to beckon for service to order second round of drinks. Had to beckon for service to ask where drinks were. On arrival wrong drinks were served. Error correct promptly.
Had to ask for bill to pay after waiting for some time.
Overall, would definitely come back again for great food.

Unfortunately, a very good meal was spoilt by very poor service. We were seated outside and felt that we had been forgotten. We arrived at 12:30pm and our main course didn't arrive until about 2:15pm. Numerous tables were served before ours even though they had arrived later. This is the first time we have had a problem at this restaurant so we'll put it down to "post Coronavirus syndrome"!
This will not deter us from returning as we are prepared to give them another chance.

Ive been here a few times and the food/service is always good,
This visit we we're seated outside on an uncomfortable bench seat with no heating even though we asked several times for the heater to be switched on.
I also had to ask for napkins 3 times!
Shame our visit was soured by the poor service.

Nearly walked out after being ignored multiple times by our server. Our wine took 45 minutes to be brought out when tables sat after us received cocktails quickly. After finishing our first course and getting up to remind our server we finally got our wine which was already opened before it was brought to the table and was the wrong bottle. We were ignored for another 10 minutes before we could get someone to tell them. Finally got the wine but were asked by the server to open the bottle because she didn't know how to use a cork screw. Mussels and caprese salad were very tasty. No one acknowledged that we had to ask for service and our wine multiple times. Really frustrating way to spend our anniversary.

It was a lovely relaxed evening out the back of the restaurant, with a roaring fire. Although our booking said we would only have 11/2 we weren’t rushed at all and enjoyed a lovely relaxed meal, which was delicious!

Service was terrible. Our table of 4 did not get our meals together. The fourth meal was delivered after the first meal was finished. Requested Parmesan cheese, had to ask 3 times. The meal that required the cheese was almost finished before it arrived. Will not be recommending.

It was not a great ambiance, too much open space, the first two items I ordered they were out of, it was like a guessing game trying to figure out what was available ( maybe should have been advised before we ordered). Food was average, couldn’t complain, but nothing to rave about.

I am bitterly disappointed in your restaurant and this booking site. I booked a table last week at Manhattan in Mornington for Nov 2 @ 7pm for my partner’s birthday. I confirmed the booking the day before that I was coming. I arrived 5 min before 7 to find the restaurant closed and then had to find somewhere else on obviously short notice. Don’t promote that you will be open and then don’t. 🤬

Very clean, well spaced tables, friendly attentive staff, hand sanitiser provided.
Food was amazing as we have dined here on many occasions,our favourite would have to be the Starter share platter! A must have. Best I’ve had anywhere in the world.

Nothing special. Very ordinary & service not great, especially when garlic bread just gets plonked on corner of the table, & not placed in the centre of the table for everyone to share. Might be a small thing but there is such a thing as serving of food etiquette.

This is one of our favourite restaurants in the local area. Food is always amazing and very consistent. The service the past few times has been very ordinary. We dined on Saturday for lunch and there were only a few other guests in that day, so it was pretty quiet. The service really let it down this time. Apart from taking an order there was no warmth or personality, we felt we were nearly in the way. When we ordered a bottle of sparkling, it was placed in front of my mother in an ice bucket and they didn't even offer to pour a glass. In a restaurant like this I would expect full service - with a smile.

Excellent service, good pizzas, good drink selection. Our main courses on the other hand were average at best. We are ordered kids meal spaghetti and meatballs which was awful, the pork shoulder which was dry and accompanied by an average salad and bland applesauce, a steak and veg which was also very average.
I’d recommend going for pizza and drinks because they were nice and the staff are lively but keep it at that.

Service extremely slow and disorganised. Ordered a beer..... took 30 mins even though the staff member had come upstairs several times in between. Entries too over 45 mins. Had to ask for dessert menu about 20 plus minutes after they cleared away main course dishes.
In saying that ambience vg, waiting staff polite, food vg...... just very slow service..... may have been because we were upstairs and forgotten???
