We went to Manhattan's for my husband's company Christmas party so we were in a private room rather than the main dining area. We started off with an array of appetizers which were all wonderful. My favorite were the seafood stuffed mushrooms. I couldn't get enough of them! I had read reviews of this restaurant before we went so I knew to pay attention to the special. I'm so glad I did because the beef tenderloin stuffed with prosciutto and goat cheese with a sherry peppercorn sauce and portabella mushrooms was melt in your mouth good. The house pinot noir was also one of the best I've had. Reminded me a little of LaCrema. For dessert I had tiramisu. All I can say is WOW! Being from a big city, Lufkin was a bit "small town" for me. But what a hidden treasure Manhattan's turned out to be! I can't wait to go back to Lufkin so we can eat here again.

Pros: Food, wine, service

Cons: hard to find

Rich history, wonderful food and outstanding atmosphere are my adjectives. Manhattan is not your typical Lufkin restaurant. Located in the basement of the Perry Building, a 50?s era office building and one of Lufkin?s few multi story buildings. Originally this space was the cafeteria for all the offices in the building back in the heyday of downtown Lufkin. I'm not knocking Lufkin after all I have lived here all of my life but let me be the first to point out the 800 pound gorilla in the room when it comes to dining out in Lufkin. "Lufkin has a difficult time supporting anything that doesn't sell chicken fried steak, hamburgers or have the all you can eat buffet". Manhattan is the antithesis of the Lufkin norm. You will find quiet, elegant, well mannered service and an owner that truly seems to understand the joy of serving wonderful food. The menu takes the approach of taking classic dishes and executing them very well. I highly recommend Manhattan to anyone who appreciates food but has found themselves stuck in a bit of a gastronomic desert. Be sure to listen to the specials. One of my favorite meals is the beef filet stuffed with prosciutto and goat cheese served with a sherry wine sauce and portabella mushrooms and sides of rosemary baked potatoes and fresh vegetables. Simple but fine and best enjoyed with a friend or special someone and a bottle of wine from their rather large wine selection. I couldn't recommend Manhattan any more. I hope Lufkin rewards such a wonderful place with many years of loyal patronage. I can tell you that I am doing my part and I will return at my next opportunity.

Pros: Food, Service & Atmosphere

Cons: Not higly visable but that is part of it's charm as well
