“Escape the hustle and bustle of Bangkok”
Reviewed 8 June 2014

I frequently stay at the JW in Bangkok. The Manhattan bar is a great place to hang out. The staff - led by Tippawan Phanpinit - are very friendly and always eager to please, the drinks menu is exhaustive and the atmosphere is great - just what you need to escape from the hustle and bustle of Bangkok. If you ask, they all only too happy to have the chef knock up some proper local thai food. Great place !

“Great Bar, Fantastic Staff!”
Reviewed 28 May 2014

I frequently dine at the JW Marriott and have recently discovered Manhattan Bar; a great place to sit, drink and relax alone, with friends, or business colleagues. No overbearing music, just a fantastic atmosphere and a comfortable venue where you can meet up and enjoy conversation. The service is first class and the staff courteous, friendly and most professional.

“Unimpressed”
Reviewed 25 May 2014

Very expensive for a very average steak. Wine is silly money and barely adequate. Service overbearing. I do prefer a bit of space between tables. Too intimate for me.

Dear DenTheCard,

Greetings from the Manhattan Bar by New York Steakhouse at the JW Marriott Bangkok!

Thank you for posting your comments on the TripAdvisor website. If you don't mind I'd like to clarify if the comments are posted to the right outlet as we're not having steaks on our menu and according to our customers, our wine promotions are among the most attractive priced ones in the market. A short note on this would be greatly appreciated...

with very best regards,

Bruno Rotschaedl - Director of Food and Beverage at the JW Marriott Bangkok..

“Spectacular”
Reviewed 23 April 2014

I have come to expect a consistent level of service from the Marriott chain (another review of the Marriott in Guangzhou pending), but this was simply superb.

Top marks to our host Annie, who was simply delightful and ensured we were well looked after.

We had a full 3 courses with some very nice wine off their extensive wine list. Right up there with one of the best dining experiences I have had. Well done Marriott, you exceeded our already high expectations.

We will be back!
