Great Local place. A must go to if you are in Elizabeth area. I have been there for dinner and for parties. We had my daughter's Wedding Rehearsal dinner there and the food was exceptional. Great cocktails.

Manolo's is an Elizabeth staple. It has the finest cuisine from Spain. The high service matches its entrees. Great place for a date, special occasion or family dinner. Worth every penny.
