What a great find! Awesome food and the music was superb. And the service was top notch, akin to something you would find in upscale supper clubs in Toronto, Chicago or NYC. Well done.... we will be back.

A fabulous time as always! Loved the live music, and the food was great! I particularly loved our waiter who we had for the 2nd time in a month. I am sorry I forget his name....maybe Mark? A tall man. He is fantastic! Lots of attention from management and the entertainment as well. What a great time overall! 5 stars.

Three people ordered salads but one was forgotten. It came about 30 minutes later with the slightest apology.
The pizza was quite good, but slow, and expensive.
The live music was pretty good but rather loud on the patio.

Food was great. Service was exceptional and overall experience was great. Would highly recommend. From the minute we got there until we left everything was great. Best experience in a long time. Greeted by the owner at the door and always someone checking to make sure everything was good. The live music was very good and added to the experience.

Overall experience was pretty good, though it took a while for servers to come to use. Could have been a miscommunication between managers. I just wanted to also say the tagliatelle has meat in it, I didn't realize because it wasn't written in the menu description (maybe they could disclose that).

Small but excellent menu. We ate outside and it had pretty good ambiance for converted parking lot space. Service was great and we enjoyed our night out. We appreciated the fact that the courses were spaced out so you didn't feel like you were being rushed. Live Jazz music piped from inside was good but a little loud. Overall a very good experience.

Such a great restaurant and such fabulous food. The tables were distanced well. There was a group of 11-12 there. Is that allowed yet? Not sure so just asking.
I would suggest that they move to contactless ordering. It would reduce the amount of times someone comes to the table. Also would be good to leave a bottle of water on the table instead of coming to refill. Glass bottles are pretty inexpensive I believe. The owner has an asthma condition so can’t wear a mask. Would be good for her to speak to that at the table so folks don’t wonder and ave guests wear a mask when she approaches for her safety. SociaVore is an online company out of Kitchener that caters to the independent restaurant segment and has done great work on website takeout and contactless ordering at the restaurant and is very reasonably priced. I think that would take Manahattans to a whole new level of safety. I felt safe there and the food was great and the entertainment was excellent. Felt almost like normal.
