Can't say enough good things about our meal at Manna. I could tell you what we had but I am sure anything that is prepared by the talented culinary staff is going to be a treat! The executive chef is from New Mexico where food is an art (like everything else in New Mexico!) and the pastry chef is equally... More

Went here for a UNCW graduation celebration dinner. It was on a Thursday night so not very busy. Seated quickly and ordered cocktails. They were out of the beer my husband wanted. Ordered a different one which wasn't local. No biggie. Charcuterie plate was delightful. Placed our dinner orders and ordered wine. Waitress came back and said they were out... More

I took my husband here for his 25th birthday, and was surprised at how clean, put together, and calm the atmosphere was. It was on the affordable side of high end dining, but we were absolutely satisfied with our portions and drinks. The dessert was to die for, and I believe it was a strawberry, cheesecake icecream or gelato. All... More

When we go out, we like to be surprised. We like creative dishes, so that we can appreciate the talent of the Chef. This was the second time we went to Manna in the last 3 months, and we were--again--surprised by the fine dining we had. We started with a mixologist-created cocktails of their choice, and it is an experience... More

This was a beautifully presented restaurant, but not my favorite. The appetizers all sounded delicious and the ones we ordered were just that. The octopus was deliciously paired as was the pork belly. The entrees fell a little flat for me, included so many ingredients almost seemed like too many (confused). If we return we will sit at the beautiful... More

My husband and I had a wonderful experience at Manna! I called for a reservation and there were none available but the (very friendly and helpful) gentleman that answered the phone suggested we sit at a 2 top bar table next to the bar. It turned out to be perfect for us, the bar atmosphere is very fun and lively.... More
