Manon is a small charming "Old World" French bistro, popular with diners who enjoy southern France cuisine with rustic French bistro ambiance.
The dining area is a bit eclectic with a replica of Van Gogh's "Starry Night" mural on the ceiling and posters of the city with Provencal hues of blue and yellow adorning the walls Tables are set with linen covering and large hurricane candles. With soft, French background music and soft lighting, the ambiance is decidedly, romantic French bistro.
The space is a little crowded with tables placed close together. There are a few tables for seating for 2 or 4 and a line of tables against the side wall.
Chef-owner Jean Michel Dumas is from the small town Fourques in the south of France. His cooking style reflects dishes from that region.
Though the menu tends to remain unchanged, the dishes are well prepared using fresh ingredients.
The service is attentive, knowledgeable, but not overly friendly.
Credit cards not accepted.
Not recommended for Kids.
Manon is closed Mondays and Tuesdays. Open Wednesday - Saturday for dinner, and Sunday for brunch and dinner.
Wednesday and Thursday's are bargain nights with a special Prix Fixe Menu.
