We have eaten at Manzanita 8-10 times and have always had a great experience. Great wine list, unique dishes, and beautiful views of the mountains keep us coming back. We have always had great service as well.

A pretty short menu but with unremarkable but well prepared food and excellent service. The downside is it is very noisy and not great for its price point. The really unfortunate part are the majority of guest who seem to encourage their children to behave...More

I think Manzanita only has Sunday brunches and yes, it will be expensive. The restaurant is fantastic but I wouldn't eat breakfast there. Go somewhere else for breakfast & enjoy a wonderful dinner at Manzanita!
