Pointed out a marketing and fundamental area for improvement (or flaw - depending on how seriously and harshly <to themselves for improvement> Manhattan decides to to take this feedback, which I had communicated but the response was at best lukewarm) when I was there this...evening. While I understand that the glasses tried to follow the “golden age” in Manhattan during the 20s, Im not sure if this consistency is held for the other modern day concoctions, answer is that its not. So for the Vesper Martini, as ardent fans would know, was created in 1953 by Ian Fleming for Casino Royale. It was served in a proper martini glass because it was an off the cuff creation by Bond (Fleming of course). To serve the Vesper in a 20s glass was both demeaning and fundamentally flawed. To (hopefully for Manhattan) know that its competitors Mortons Bar and Jigger & Pony followed the fundamentals to the “t”s and still insist on a flawed and illogical thought - would be almost suicidal. Cocktails are about its taste, its fundamentals, its presentation as well as the (logical and interesting) stories surrounding it. Any misstep in any of these areas will cause a cognitive / emotional / taste dissonance for the drinker. Manhattan is a great place painstakingly built up but if it were to maintain its front runner position, should seriously consider accepting feedback (Hd Bartender was Kelvin who didnt quite want to accept the feedback nor thought it important enough to have a mini discussion at least?!) Adaptability, admittance and improvements are key to success - no one is ever to big to fail, so think about this.More

For a first time experience of this place, it was a huge disappointment. Booked a table with my girlfriends for my birthday. As our drinks were being served, the staff poured an entire glass of drinks down my back. While I am sure it was...an accident and the lady did apologize once for it, getting soaked with a cold drink on the back was not how i imagined my birthday drinks would start. I did choose not to make a big deal out of it but found it even more disappointing that there was no further apology for the incident. The place looks good but the kind of service we got certainly defined the whole Manhattan experience to the point that the food and drinks did not have an impact to us at all.More

I often show up on a Friday to enjoy the wonderful service and drinks. Rusty, Kelvin, Sophia, Yogi, and Yahan always take the time to have a conversation, check-in. Everyone needs to take the time to get to know the amazing staff. It only makes...the experience better. Recommend the Lady Of Song and Kiss and Cry for champagne cocktail lovers, the popcorn is addictive!More

It was my first trip to Manhattan which was highly recommended by friend Tal. He had an excellent experience and hence, we went. We love the the classic charm with relaxing ambience....once seated, you are glued to the chair.... We were served by amazing Angela...we...started with her recommendation of 3000, impossible meat as we are vegetarian, completed with another drinks which I have forgotten the name, it was soooo refreshing after the meal ! Before we left, we were surprised with another drinks on the house. Wow....we were so bloom away. What can we say ? We will definitely return to look for Angela.....More

The Manhattan bar ranked No. 11 best bar in the world by CNN, No. 2 in SG. It was difficult to book a seat, but we finally managed. It has a nice ambiance. The waitress was helpful to recommend drinks. But we were a bit...disappointed. The waiter is a bit pushy for us to get more drinks. Right after we got another drink, he told us that we have a few minutes left to leave! It was not crowded, with empty seats around. And we wish he had told us that before we ordered the drink! We saw other tables were offered the complementary drink at the beginning, but ours were offered in the end, when we were rushed to leave. The Manhattan bar was not quite up to our expectations.More

We have been here a couple of times, and every time it's a great time. The team is welcoming and friendly. The drink menu is always a masterpiece of surprise of creativity that never fails to impress. The chilled atmosphere and dim lighting make it...a relaxing and great place to spend some time over amazing cocktail creations.More

We love coming to Manhattan because service is always warm and friendly and it feels like home. Tim and Alson made our drinks tonight and we love that they had ideas about what spirit, bitters or liqueur went better with a particular cocktail we chose....Justin was our waiter the last time we visited; he remembered us and popped by to say hi, which is amazing because they must get a lot of guests! And of course the drinks are fabulous and the ambience cosy (they have a Christmas tree in the corner for the festive season, which works well with the leather sofas and wood paneling). We like the redemption burger and the clam chowder (full of goodness!) Do pay them a visit when you are next in Singapore, hopefully this year if borders re-open.More

Not at all! I only had to wait 15mins before there was room for me to sit at the bar and it was a busy night. If it’s during the week, there was no waiting time at all.
