My boyfriend and I came here with his two friends, another couple. We did have to wait 30 minutes even though we did have a 9:30 p.m. reservation. Once we were seated, we ordered: Oysters by the half shell, Charcuterie, SEAFOOD BOUILLABAISSE, CHARBROILED BEEF SIRLOIN NOODLES, Short Ribs, and PAN ROASTED SCOTTISH SALMON. Everyone liked their dishes and we did... More

The food and staff at Twenty Manning are both so excellent! My wife and I had dinner there and thoroughly enjoyed our experience! The meat and cheese platters for an appetizer are a must do and for dinner we had the pan seared butternut squash raviolis and the grilled prime Berkshire pork chop. We had the cheesecake and berry tort... More

So it's been 4 years since we are here and we are here a lot ... So excited to come back to a massive let down on all levels. I would have given it a one but for the amazing meals we have had here before ... Perhaps because it was Sunday night and the restaurant was pretty much empty... More

We ordered the raw oyster and the shrimp with spicy. They both perfecto. Never ever eat such a delicious fresh oyster like this. The shrimp is full of taste. Great place to have a romantic dinner or even hang out in the bar.

We visited on Memorial Day. The restaurant is located in a pleasant, interesting area and is comfortable. My wife, our friend and I all thought that the food was very good.
