Somebody recommended to us to go to this restaurant. We really regretted we went there. I will never recommend to anybody this restaurant. Food is bad, service is so-so, price is high. The owner is rude. i will never come back. Not worsted the money we spent there.

Loved it. The kids loved it. The Kebabs are good value; the Mantee signature dish less so - while it is very tasty; there is not much food for the money compared to everything else on the menu.

Mantee is a step into another world. It's as if you've entered the town square set up for a family party somewhere on the Mediterranean coast. Mismatched tables and chairs dot the square, and overhead are crisscrossed random strings of lights. There is also small dining area with three or four country French tables and chairs... This indoor section opens... More

We were walk in customers therefore we couldnt get a table in the garden. Therefore, i suggest you make a reservation. Staff was humorous and kind. Food was great, not the greatest kebab i ever had. Cherry kebab was delish! Service was almost instantaneous so that was perfect concerning the fact that we were famished.

Dinner at Mantee is a happening! The outdoor patio is charmingly reminiscent of a little village square, festively decorated with random strings of overhead lights. The tables and chairs are a variety of styles and sizes, as if the family members brought bits and pieces of their own furniture for a party.. And it is like a party..because the waitstaff... More

Rather than order entrees, we decided to have a number of appetizers for dinner, and we were not disappointed. The restaurant is known for mantee, a traditional dish that is like tortellini. We had that and many other dishes: spicy potatoes, dolma yogurt, queen's delight (the only dish that was disappointing) and other. All were very good. The service was... More

we arrived late one Sunday night and were seated promptly. We were treated to a delicious branzino. I would recommend this restaurant if you're in the neighborhood.

The mezzes here were excellent! We tried the okra/tomato, the eggplant, the heated feta cheese...and, then, I had the some of the best lamb chops I have ever had. Obviously, this is a talented and conscientious kitchen!!

We had the baked feta, the king and queens delight, The spicy potatoes and the Mantee traditional and vegetable. This restaurant is a must if... More
