Having heard so many great things about Superfine, we stopped in for Sunday brunch after a short hike to the Agassiz Rocks. What a cute, clean, comfortable restaurant-- with a few side booths, a long communal table and full bar. Great coffee and bloody Mary, followed by a Mexican skillet special of the day and the crunchy fried chicken basket with pickles and miso slaw. The server was very gracious and attentive, and Chef Chris came from the kitchen to greet us. Manchester-by-the-Sea is forty minutes from our home, but we will make Superfine and the next-door bookstore delightful occasional destinations.

So we're searching for a new place to dine out and stumble upon "Superfine" in Manchester-by-the Sea. They were fairly well reviewed on Yelp, so we gave it a try.

We were greeted by friendly staff upon walking in the door, which was refreshing. We had a Mai Tai and draft beer to get started, then ordered an Italian pizza and the ribs. The pizza was pretty good, loved the crust. I'd say it was good, perhaps better than average, but not amazing. The ribs however, were unbelievably good. They were perfectly cooked, seasoned, and "fall off the bone" tender. At $16 for the ribs, they should be good and were. You gotta try them if you go. I'll indulge again the next visit. The ribs came with coleslaw and some tasty fries. We could've had a salad vice the fries, but choose to hit it hard instead. We spent $60 for two drinks and two entrees, which for a nice little place with quality food was fairly priced.

The atmosphere is that of a small, modern decor local place that small and cozy. We loved it and will eagerly return to this quaint little spot in a beautiful, quaint North Shore town.

I've been living in Manchester by the Sea for a few years now, and it's great to finally have a good restaurant. Superfine is by far the best restaurant in Manchester by the Sea. The food is great (especially the veggie burger) and the service is super fast and friendly. There are only two problems with Superfine - they have a reasonably limited menu (so look at it online before you go) and the prices are very high. The food is delicious, but the prices are too high. If you go to Superfine expect fast, friendly service, good food, and high prices.

Some times too much hype leads to disappointment. Anxious to visit this new restaurant but expectations did not match the buzz.
Very limited menu, not a problem in and of itself but one would certainly have expected to find at least one seafood option other than a salmon/tuna burger in “Manchester by the Sea”. Pizza was underwhelming, thin crispy crust but toppings were found lacking. Burger OK but who doesn’t do a good burger anymore. Evening special was a ‘deconstructed’ short rib and polenta which was ‘alright’ but again, nothing that lived up to the hype. Sorry to say we won’t be making the trip again.

It’s nice to have a restaurant put this much love and effort into the menu and food coming out of the kitchen.

Came here with some friends the first time and everything was super awesome, pizza, chicken, everything... Have came back a couple more times with family and the level of greatness is always first class delicious.
