Service Lacking

Dined on May 29, 2015

I have tried Manny's on a couple of occasions. While food is typically good, service continues to make it not worth the visit. On my last attempt, I order an appetizer prior to my entire groups arrival to keep two small children happy. The rest of my party showed up, all ordered, and they received their appetizers before mine ever showed up. I finally asked and was told it would be out shortly. I told them it was no longer necessary because our food would be out shortly and received a snarky response from the waitress about how it was coming because our food was still being cooked. As we waited 45 minutes for our food, we overheard our waitress telling another table about specials. There were no specials written anywhere and she had said nothing to us. We asked the waitress and her response was that it is their usual happy hour specials they have Mon-Fri. We are not regulars so we asked what those are. Again with attitude, we learned that several items we would have ordered would have been 1/2 price. We received no apology or anything. Overall, I hadn't been back in a few months because of previous slow service and this experience was even worse.

Mother's Day Disappointment at Manny's

Dined on May 10, 2015

My son took me to Manny's for Mother's Day. I made a reservation May 9 through the Manny's website and was linked to Open Table (under Larry - I am Larry's wife). A promotion was on the site that stated "Mother's Day - mothers eat 1/2 price brunch or dinner orders." My son had taken me there previous Mother's Days and this was the promotion we experienced then, also. The previous occasions I had ordered from the Brunch section or a Greek chicken platter from the Greek Specialties section of the menu. Son had ordered fish dinner baskets. The reservation was for 1pm as was the time frame on other Mother's Day visits to Manny's . This day we each ordered a Souvlaki platter under the Greek Specialties. When the bill was brought, it did not have the 1/2 off reduction for Mom. When questioned, the waitress brought the manager, who said the orders had to be from the brunch section to be valid; a dinner type order would have to be after 4pm ( even though there were no dinner hours specified for Sundays on the menu or online). When asked for the dinnertime selections, he pointed out the same menu and specifically mentioned the Greek Specialties. He said, " I do not make the rules. My job is to enforce them!" emphasizing "enforce" in a very offensive voice. He said, "My job is not to give away money!" His whole attitude was rude, representing extremely poor customer service. He questioned me about where I had seen the promotion, left for several minutes after I asked for his name on a card, and returned with a copy of the receipt on which he had written "Daniel" and "Open Table Mother's Day Promo Half of mom's Brunch". I checked the Manny's site about 2:30pm after returning home and the promotion had disappeared. I hope the $6.50 that Daniel made for Manny's by not giving half off one $12.99 Souvlaki platter is worth the loss of our patronage and possibly that of others. The food was only fair and only the sweet waitress Tia deserves praise.

Service was great. This is obviously a very popular local place. It was crowded and everyone was having a good time. The live music was nice but painfully loud. Our group could not talk to each other due to how loud the music was around us. It was not bad, but way too loud. Food is acceptable, not bad. But chips with my wrap were not scrip. If music was turned down, I would go back.

Great night !!

Dined on March 4, 2015

Our time was sensational at Manny's from start to finish. We made the reservation and ordered online . We had to meet a train and I called ahead to explain to the person in charge that we would like our meal as soon as we walked in, that's why the reservation and online order and they were very accommodating. We arrived 5 minutes late and everything was set up already and they brought the food out to us immediately. The food was excellent! We had the spinach artichoke dip for an appetizer and our favorite meal gyros as an entre. The server didn't hover around bothering us he was there when we needed him though. It was quiet there, the atmoshere was conducive to talking and having a great time. No children were present and this was wonderful, well it was 9:45 - 10:15 at night. I would recommend the restaurant to anyone -- tourist or local -- for a great meal and good ambiance. We will be returning again and ordering online again ahead of time.

Wine tasting night

Dined on February 24, 2015

We went for a wine tasting...whites and red were poured in the same glass, but that was okay. The nachos were HORRID and the waitress was never around. I think she thought the bartender and wine presenter were waiting on us...food and service was horrible...not the norm.

Not Manny's best night

Dined on January 16, 2015

The Gin House Boys always have a good following and any restaurant that books them should know, especially after repeated play dates, that extra wait staff is a good thing. Last week they must have been understaffed as our service was slow and the food was cool to cold upon delivery. While we did have a table reserved for us, it was not what I requested. This will not prevent us from going back to Manny's though! We'll be back the next time the Gin House Boys play!

Manny's Bingo anyone?

Dined on January 3, 2015

Happend to visit Manny's on a cold Saturday evening. Very quiet when we arrived but within an hour was very busy. Food was great, wings and gyros for everyone. Service, another story...table service was good, Melissa was a gem, kitchen service was...SLOW! Took 45 mins before wings arrived, another 15 for the gyros. Love Manny's food but the overall service level ( really slow kitchen) keeps us from visiting more often. Bingo began while we were eating so we stayed to enjoy and won $5 off our meal. Love you Manny's...but put a fire under the kitchen staff!

BIRTHDAY MONTH - 30 DAYS OF KRISTEN

Dined on November 13, 2014

This is how long my daughter celebrates her special day (it used to be one week). First time in quite some time that we haven't had an all out BLOWOUT! Maybe because she's getting a little older, the low key celebration with a few friends (and her parents, by special proxy, I begged), was very relaxed and included a nice game of Trivia--we placed 3rd. Tasty wings, assorted apps, salads, gyros, Greek chicken, beer & wine, all followed by tequila shooters, and served by a great guy, Shannon (I hope that's right, no memory after 60). GREAT TIMES WITH FAM & FRIENDS.

A Good Place to Kick back

Dined on October 19, 2014

I really liked this place! It can be loud because they have tv's with football games going on but it's just a relaxed atmosphere. It's like you just go there to hang out with buddies that you never knew you had. The food is really good too and the service is pretty great! I wouldn't recommend this as a date night location by any means but it is definitely a place to go if you just want to get to just get away and forget about the craziness of your regular day to day life. Highly recommend!

Birthday Bash

Dined on September 12, 2014

I love Manny's Neighborhood Grill because they are so accommodating to us when we bring in our large groups. Our band always comes in for our members birthdays, and no matter if we bring 11 - 14 people, Manny's is happy to make a spot. I have always found that the food is good, fresh and the wait staff friendly too.

Service could have been better

Dined on August 7, 2014

Our server had a few tables that night, and I was never asked if I wanted another drink, and when I did ask for a glass of water I never received it. Plus, the wings were not warm when we received them. They were good, but not warm.

Valentine's Day

Dined on February 15, 2014

We went for the Valentines day special and as usual it was pretty good for the price. The place was packed and that is unusual but they had a decent band and although the staff seemed overloaded the would always make things right if you brought it to their attention. This place isn't that fancy but most of the food is good they have great Greek food and I like their pizza I don't recommend the wings. They have specials and discounts for rewards members. If you want to eat well and not go broke this place is for you.

Very disappointing

Dined on February 15, 2014

We had Valentine's dinner here because we could make reservations. That should have been a clue! We were not greeted by our waiter who never shared his named for 20 MINUTES! Appetizers took 45 MINUTES! Unacceptable! I asked him what the "greek" caviar was and he told me he didn't know! My greek soup was served, over salted, under lemoned with the soup spilled over the rim. The bottle of wine we ordered arrived pre-opened! He poured it without being asked if we wanted to taste it! My gyro meat was dried out, over-cooked and chewy, no tomatoes, and the pita bread burned at the edges but the sandwich was cold! Baklava for dessert that couldn't be sliced thru with a knife! It was still frozen. Very disappointing. No hurry to return. :(

Dined on February 14, 2014

We went for Valentines Day. We got right in with our reservation. The serve was prompt and came back and checked on us. The steaks were tough. The crab cakes were good. I will probably try again at a less busy time but will probably stay away from their steaks.

Manny's Has Been Better

Dined on January 31, 2014

I have had good experiences at this restaurant in the past. Although this time we went on a busy Friday night, we had a reservation. We let the server know that we had a reservation but were told that there were no 4 person tables available. We were seated at a 3 person bar table and told that if something opened up, we could move. In the mean time, we moved a chair from a nearby bar table and ended up having our meal there. The food was good as usual but the service very slow that night.

Restaurant Week

Dined on January 19, 2014

We travel with a 7 year old and tend to feel most comfortable in more casual places. Manny's was an interesting combination of Greek, sports bar dn American food. I had the 3 for $20 special with duck as the main course. It was great, as was the baklava. Greek salad was a little weak but I don't begrudge them that.

Bingo was GREAT thanks to Sandra the BINBO lady. Super nice time, but the burgers were not as good as usual?! I did try something different, CORN DOGS. I had not had one in quite some time and my friend asked to share, so I did. That's how I found out something wasn't up to par. Other than that, we'll still go and have a good time.

Trivia Thursday..

Dined on September 19, 2013

We have been coming to Manny's for over a year now. Every Thursday for Trivia. We are pretty steady with our order. But its difficult when we request a specific server to get that person. Hardly ever do we unless I go and comment to the Mgr on duty. I even note it when I make the reservation. The service is medium at best. Takes a little while to get our initial drink order. Hence why we ask for the same server (which never happens) because they know what we drink and can place the order more quickly. The menu has changed since we have started going there. It has improved quite a bit.

Outstanding greek food

vip
Dined on August 9, 2013

This neighborhood gem, where the locals hide out, has also some of the best greek food that I have ever had. The falafel was the most delicate, fluffy, light yet filling starter. The hummus was perfection. We wished we lived locally to dine there often. Decor is kind of blah but good food, I respect.

Not what I expected

vip
Dined on June 20, 2013

Not what I expected from a restaurant on Open Table. When visiting a new city, I usually use Open Table to pick a restaurant with a certain level of class. Open Table restaurants usually have a Hostess (not here, it was open seating). Open Table restaurants don't usually have things like noisy team trivia or bingo nights (this one does). The menu was very extensive. The Greek food was OK for Greek food; I did like that the gyro meat appeared to be sliced off the rotisserie. The Greek salad did come with a large chunk of feta. Waitress was rarely around even though they weren't that busy.

We normally come in for dinner

Dined on February 22, 2013

We normally come in for dinner and trivia. When I make the reservation, I ask to be seated in a section with a server who knows what we like and takes little effort to wait on us. Hence why we ask for her. But usually we dont get her and when I ask why (to the server) she says that the mgnt didnt know. Now when I make the reservation it asks if there are any special things we want...and I always say "we want...". So I find it hard to believe that the mgnt didnt see my request. Other than that we enjoy coming there.
