    We decided to try out this place out as a venue for our monthly after work gathering one Friday afternoon. Being a lover of specials, what caught our attention was Happy Hour from 4 - 7pm, and then......yes there was more.....2 for 1 beef burgers!!!! We arrived to a relatively quiet place (they open at 4pm) which meant we could pick and choose where to be seated. Our friendly waiter lead us to our table announcing the above specials that we were so excited about, which includes half price Tequila, 2 for 1 selection of cocktails, and 2 for 1 draught beers. We had a few drinks then ordered our burgers, which was presented on a ceramic tile, with fries presented in an antique type of mug like they used in the olden days. The burger was the highlight - juicy, flavoursome served on toasted bun. All 4 f us agreed they were the best burgers we've ever had! They will definitely be seeing me again!
    Love coming back to Cafe Manhattan! The energy here is always light and fun! It's perfect for a quick drinks catchup with friends, and if you're feeling peckish, they have a great bar style menu. Be warned, their burgers are massive and can easily be shared.
    I'm all for being out there but if your pimply waiter leans over you with his armpit in your face, without a shirt on in 32 degrees weather, it is a bit gross. Except for that I do like this place as the service is good and the menu has some variety. The burgers aren't that amazing but the battered fish was simply delicious.
    I go at least 3 times a week!!! Love the staff, love the food (Rib basket, American Hanger & the Texan Chicken wings w/ onion rings) This has to be the best place to go to on just about every night of the week!!!
    I enjoyed the fast and efficient service, and the burgers are really good. Keep up the good work!
