Modern decor (if you care - I don't), polite staff, terribly bland food. I expected the food to be overpriced, but I was so disappointed with virtually everything that I had to send my dish back. The chips were like flavorless styrofoam, the salsa and black beans tasted like they came from a can, and there was no effort put into the rice. I will say the loma de res was cooked quite well and the goat cheese was a nice touch, but I couldn't justify the $15 tab I was facing so I put down my fork after a few bites. This was the first time I've ever outright sent a dish back to the kitchen, and the staff was very accommodating about it. The head chef or kitchen, however, is asleep on the job at Manuel's.

Very cool place This is a really nice Mexican restaurant, definitely on the high end. Their prices are slightly higher than you would expect. I've had their tortilla soup and it is great, but a tad spicy with awesome ambiance and food. Little pricey but well worth it

Oh Manuel' are officially my favorite place to have dinner or happy hour and I would recommend you to all of my top clients and friends. We have been to Manuel's more than seven times in the last four months and I must say that they have not faltered in any way. The staff is kind, generous and knowledgeable plus they suggested tasty appetizers and entrees. Everything I have tasted is superb! Favorites of mine include the ceviche appetizer, sopa de tres chiles soup and the Res entre. If you only try one of my suggestions, try the Sopa de tres chiles! If you like drinks, they have amazing cucumber and Mexican martinis plus they make a high quality margarita that makes for a delightful happy hour!

I'm from Chicago, restaurants everywhere. Worked in the industry a long time. My server at Manuels on Congress was 1 of the best I've had. The food was deliciously perfect and the service was spot on. I'm happy I ended up here! :-)

I had the shrimp and crab enchiladas. Ridiculously delicious. Great service, great vibe, great atmosphere. It came highly recommended and exceeded all expectations. It was pricy but worth it.

The lunch menu makes this place more affordable as an afternoon venue. The salsa verte is great here!
