This is fixed price menu of around 14 items for $198. They are very accommodative of vegetarians & those with dietary needs. Each portion is small. The food is creative & the ingredients are explained. You need to plan 2-4 hours to enjoy this. They also have an alcoholic & non alcoholic drink tasting menu for $60. It is difficult to get reservations. Parking is readily available. Service was good but twice they brought out egg items though we had clearly told them prior to arrival & upon arrival that we don't eat eggs - for the price of the restaurant, they should know better. I also found the restaurant very formal - too much for an informal Californian. They did not want me to wear Vibrams there. So this was a fine dining experience with creative quality healthy food with good taste, but for a long dining experience, Taj Campton place in San Francisco, or Millenium (currently in San Francisco but moving to Oakland) are still my preferences, especially with their prices being half of what Manresa charges. If you want to appreciate the thought & creativity of each item in a series of dishes, this is the place.

The real Chef is not the one who knows how to cook, but the one who knows how to cook exceptionally well and... is able to take you on a culinary journey. One of the best meals I've ever had and definitely the best 'story' ever told (or shall I say eaten?). The whole ceremony has started and ended with the identically looking dishes. What a treat! Thank you! & thank you for you kind 'tour'. Loved your kitchen.

We went on a Weds at 7 PM. It was not crowded. We had the 12 course tasting. I could not eat 4 of them. I was stunned! The bill was over $500.00 w/tip. There are plenty of better, more reasonable restaurants in the Bay Area.

Great food. Great atmosphere. The dishes were unique, well presented, fresh flavors. Very upscale dinning.

The last time I was at Manresa, I had their Fall Garden menu. Overall, it was a bit of an underwhelming experience compared to those at other Michelin-starred restaurants of the same price. There were only 1-2 dishes among 10 (+ 3 desserts) that stood completely stood out. The menu was also a bit light. Surprisingly, I wasn't full by the time we got to desserts. As for the desserts, they were a bit too sweet. Service was just average--another disappointment for a restaurant of this class. That being said, I couldn't thinking of an egregious flaws, but there was also nothing that particularly stood out. I just wasn't a memorable experience. The venue is quite spacey, and the warm interior is comforting. I would consider it a good location for a fancy date.

Manresa was a wonderful dining experience and my first Michelin star experience as well. I really like that although this is a 2 Michelin star restaurant, you can still wear nice jeans and a button down shirt and be totally welcome aboard (no need for a jacket). The service was wonderful, with every dish brought out in a choreographed fashion, making it as fun to watch as to eat. The tasting menu (we got the "bar bites") was exceptionally varied but had a common themes throughout. Clearly time and effort were involved in creating the menu, and it showed. My favorite dish was the salmon roe with an almond paste of sorts beneath it. Delicious! The cocktails are also wonderful. I can't see myself necessarily doing the wine paring because it is super expensive but maybe for a super special treat. This place is pricey, so expect to pay for it, but for special occasions I can see myself coming back here for sure.

Came here on a Wednesday night, walked in, nice little restaurant in a house-like structure separated into two dining rooms. Nice decor, with a cute little Christmas tree, very comfy and cosy. The host / hostess gracefully greeted us at the door and we were offered to sit at the bar area while we wait for our friends to arrive. Extensive wine and alcohol list and the sommelier was very knowledge, overall great experience so far. Ordered the regular tasting menu instead of the seasonal one but overall the food wasn't what I expected of a two Michelin star restaurant. The flavors just didn't quite taste right with too many dishes that were sweet / savory mixed together which made the taste balance kinda off. I enjoyed the scallops but the flavors of the squab and almond tofu was not ok (verging on 'off'). I appreciate the chef wanting to be inventive putting together different ingredients (e.g. cucumber / basil / buttermilk pudding) but unfortunately I didn't love it. I was also disappointed that the staff didn't really explain the dish that I would expect at a Michelin star restaurant (e.g. explain the various ingredients and how you would eat the dish vs just telling us what the dish is). They were very professional and gracious, I just expected slightly more. One major star of the meal was the brioche, it was divine. Apparently they sell these at Campbell Markets but I have yet to verify this.
