Not impressed with food or drinks. The food was below average with an above average price. The drinks were downright weak, and slightly overpriced. The interior space was nice and the atmosphere was fine, (although it was nothing to write home about). Overall I would skip Manzana's in favor of virtually any other restaurant in Lake Oswego. (including McDonalds).
great restaurant. There is this one waitress that made the whole night very enjoyable. Shilo Myers was her name and she was very personable and friendly. They had great staff. I hope next time we go to manzana's we get a great waitress like Shilo:)
Attractive lake-view property with so-so food and drinks. Has an undeniably corporate feel and a menu that's heavy on superlatives and light on creativity. Good for happy hour or for indiscriminate out-of-towners.
While I tend to agree with the review from squidderz, I'd give the place a bit more credit then that. Most of the food on the menu is fairly predictable I suppose, but the time we went there I thought the food competently prepared and delicious. Prices were fairly reasonable I thought, though the wine list had a corporate look and pricing (mark-up) to it. This is Oregon for God sake's; how about focusing on wine from this area rather then the usual suspects from California (Duckhorn, Sonoma-Cutrer, Silver Oak, etc.).
Otherwise, I enjoyed our visit to the Grill and would happily visit again. The location overlooking the lake is nice and the atmosphere in the restaurant fine. Service was somewhat amateurish I guess, but it was clear that the staff was making an effort to do a good job (bringing wrong orders to our table, bringing by a duplicate order of the guac and chips - that sort of thing).
Not the best experience I suppose, but really not bad at all. As I said, we'd happily go again.
The food is always outstanding. We go as often as we can and never get tired of it. Very creative, yet down to Earth menu. Great prices too. The service is always top notch, and the ambience is first rate. Good class of clientele too. Highly recommended!!
