“Great Patio, not much more…”
Doesn’t like it

I went to Manuel’s last night. I knew that it would not be what I expect, but why not. It was close and the wind was blowing, is there a better reason?
Let me say first that most folks that read this will like the food, hell even love it.
But for me, it is just not there. The presentation and flavor is good, the atmosphere is nice, but after I eat here I always an left wanting … more, better, something else.
Mind you this is not Tex-Mex, but still last night the Chile Relleno del Mar was good. The seafood and flavor great, but it was still lacking, especially for a $19 dish.
This place just never blows up my dress no matter what I eat. There is a bright side, when the weather is nice the patio is awesome. There is also three booths in the bar that can hold 4-5 people, which makes the place warmer and more comfy. One has an adjacent boot so you might be able to get 8 friends at that one back booth.
