Went to celebrate wife's Birthday, 1st time visit, not the last! Arrived early for a Sunday dinner, seated quickly, then met the most food KNOWLEDGEABLE waiter, ever. Knew how all items were prepared, answered questions on how pork was brined to sustain juiceness, and then all ordered. 3 ordered SPECIAL Grouper and I ordered the Pork chop. We all were... More

After a short hiatus, Manna has resumed its "Beggars Can't Be Choosers" dinner menu in the bar on Sundays. YAY! This is an excellent way to sample the quality food coming out of the kitchen, but you need a sense of adventure. Not feeling adventurous? The regular menu is also available. My family, many of my friends, and I are... More

Excellent food and wine. Great service at the bar. Picked a great Chardonnay that paired with our food. Solid overall wine list. Locally sourced food where possible. Get a reservation on a weekend night.

Great dining experience, started with the cheese & charcuterie plate, then I had the put a tomato on it salad, which had a lovely light dressing, my entree was the finger lickin' pig pickin' chop served with black-eyed peas, and sweet potato dumplings (gnocchi-like) that had a kick. All were delicious, there was no room for dessert. Service was great... More

Went to Manna for dinner during our beach vacation. The food was fantastic in both presentation and flavor. The atmosphere is very intimate and served as the perfect location for a romantic dinner with my wife. The service was fantastic and all the staff were friendly and knowledgeable.

I don't give many 5star reviews, frankly because not many places deserve the top rating...Manna is special. I attended their "beggars can't be choosers" this Sunday and it was an amazing food experience. Dinner was a mystery to everyone including most of the front of house staff. That being said, everyone was friendly and otherwise awesome...special shoutout to Matt who... More

Friendly, knowledgeable, and attentive. Their recommendations were spot on! The bar tender, a mixologist, made some great cocktails! For dinner the chef made us 2 separate 4 course... More

Small fancy restaurant with bar area. Make sure to make reservations if you want to eat at the restaurant area or there will be a wait. We walked in and had a table for two right when they opened for dinner. Be aware that their drinks are "crafted" by the bartenders so run of the mill mixed drinks are not... More

We met our daughter's new roommate's family at Manna before moving both girls into their freshman year at UNCW. The coziness of the restaurant was great for conversation. The food was spectacular - the scallops were cooked to perfection. The fish was outstanding. Our waiter was very attentive and knowledgeable about the food.
