“decent feed”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 January 2013

good food and ok service (for Tasmania). The menu was limited but what they had was of good quality and very well presented. The staff were friendly and the cocktail and wine list gave me plenty of choices to go with the tapas.

“Extraordinary”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 October 2012

Having just dined at Manhattan I can honestly say this is one of Tasmanias best bars. The cocktail and beer selections are extensive and the new tapas menu is surely Launcestons best . House made charcuterie and beautiful small plate offerings Bravo

“Exceptional.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 October 2012

Drinks, service, food...always exceptional although a bit on the expensive side but thats to be expected.
Great excuse to dress up and head out with friends.
Be sure to book though as they are always so busy!

“Professional, classy and friendly!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 September 2012

Came in for drinks and tapas on a Saturday night, and absolutely loved it! The bartenders made some of the best cocktails I've had, martinis in particular! (coming from a Melbournite who often resides at the Gin Palace for martini consumption!).
The food was all superb with eye-fillet medallions and the seafood being the stand out. I would highly recommend giving this sassy venue a visit and experience it for yourself!

“My favourite place in Tas <3”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 September 2012

I love the decor, the music, the menu and the COCKTAILS! I have been to manhattan wine bar a number of times now and have always had great service because staff have taken the time to ask how myself and the people I am with are, why we are out and seem generally interested and friendly. I have recently been to their new events called intimate sessions and I just loved how great it was to be up close and personal with the artists and the first show I attended featured Katie Noonan who stayed behind after the show to do a meet and greet and take photos with everyone. Tim Freedman also did the same last friday night and it was such an awesome night to be apart of. It is also so great to see the manager being so relaxed and friendly when the venue is clearly busy. I think his name is Andy or something like that and he seems to always be happy to greet people and provide a good service experience. I also love the artwork on the wall and want every one of them for my own collection!
