    Great place for inexpensive but well prepared German food. The pea soup is especially amazing; wursts, pork loin, schnitzels all as good as you'll find at the far more expensive ZumStamtisch. Be warned that the tap beers -- huge selection, by the way -- come in half-liter, liter and even larger sizes. The half liter is enough for most humans. Service is terrific -- friendly, efficient, genuinely warm and welcoming. My only negative about the place: since it's a great place for families, there are too many little kids being loud and running around, totally out of their parents' control. It's nice there's a restaurant that will tolerate them, I guess, but it may drive most patrons to order another half liter!

    Past this place for years. Then friends said let's go for a drink for your birthday. I had no idea how much that I would enjoy the drink and food. The food might be German, but have a nice selection of pub food.

    My mother just moved to Forest Hills and loves German food so I was happy to find the restaurant so close to her new apartment. The food and beer were just great. My only criticism is there was a party going on and there are lots of TV's pm every wall with a hockey game so the noise level was really high when we were there. The prices were very reasonable and food portions generous. Substitutions to the menu were allowed without an increase in price. This is not a special occasion restaurant but a good neighborhood especially if you like German food.

    The portions are man-size, and the food is satisfying. It's comfort food: carbs from spaetzle and potato salad, and protein and from different wursts, and schnitzels that cover the entire plate. After an order of pierogies, and massive plates of meat, and really good German beer on tap, you never get to the desserts. A good place for a Friday evening, to kick back with a nice Pilsner, comfort food and a soccer game on the TV.

    We had a group of about 10-12 people for a birthday celebration. The food was fabulous. The beer selection is great (although I need nothing more than Spaten Oktoberfest in a 2 litre glass boot). The staff is as friendly as can be. It gets packed and busy, but the staff works their tail off and are very nice. We had tons of appetizers and they were all amazing. The bavarian pretzel is my favorite and has 3 phenomenal side dips for it - goose spread (an amazing goose fat-based butter), chicken liver pate, and beer cheese. You can't go wrong with any of them. The potato pancakes are above average. The Black Forest Smoked Bacon is amazing as well. The pierogis are a winner. Nothing was bad at all. I can't recommend it enough.

    They offer both sandwiches and full entrees. The pastrami is as good as you can get outside Manhattan. Entrees are very large, expect to take some home. Service has been variable in the past but fine during this visit.

    This is a good restaurant if you are local to the place. There are places I would travel great distances to eat at and those that I'm thankful are down the street. This is the latter. The food, classic German, is very good if you like it. If not, there are very limited selections of other dishes. I like pastrami, spaetzle, schnitzel and German beer so I find the menu appealing. Those dishes are well prepared with ample portions. The service is mediocre. I dislike places where the staff tries to remember orders without writing anything down from a menu with many choices and add-ons for a table of 4. Invariably at least one person's order comes out wrong, which is what happened here on several occasions. Otherwise the place is enjoyable.

    We made reservations for Valentines Day at Manor Oktoberfest. I've been there probably close to ten times before. I decided to go here because of its perfect proximity between my home and the movie theater we went to see a movie. This time we waited close to 5 minutes to be seated. I was a bit surprised that the restaurant was nearly empty since it was a big holiday but it was also pretty late. Our host finally seated us. He was polite but soon seemed to overdo it a touch as he asked us if everything was fine about a dozen times from when we ordered drinks to apps to dinner. The disappointing part was the meal. In the past I had always gotten large portions. This time for $21 I got a filet of Jaegarschnitzel over a giant bed of potatos.

    First time I went with my husband, we ABSOLUTELY loved the food, we were so very impressed with the inside of the restaurant, since its very deceiving from the outside, it doesn't look that big from the outside! once inside, it was so spacious & beautiful, so comfortable and the ambience was very nice! NOT TO MENTION THE FOOD WAS DEFINATELY WORTH GOING BACK AGAIN AND AGAIN FOR!! so much so we brought back my husbands sister, brother and their spouses and they LOVED IT!!! SO MUCH FOOD! had to bring some home so I could enjoy it again the next day TOO!!! The Staff were all great!!! We will definitely be going back for the best GERMAN FOOD we have had in a VERY LONG TIME!

    Munich-themed restaurant with great comfort food in a relaxed atmosphere. Best for dinner and beer with a bunch of friends. I love that the hearty food would usually call for a rowdy atmosphere but the place is relaxed enough for nice dinner conversation but energetic enough for boisterous laughter. They have changing dinner specials and the maître'd was very nice. Will definitely come back often.

    This is a great, family-friendly, moderately-priced German restaurant; very authentic in both food and ambiance. Excellent selection of beer; decent selection of wine; enormous portions. It's not elegant, but it's not trying to be. More raucous and festive. Maybe the best loin of pork, pea soup, and wursts in the borough.

    We had a yummy chicken liver paté (with sliced red onions and pickles) and a freshly made Oktoberfest pretzel with goose spread. I had a superb München Hofbräu Hefeweizen. The red cabbage was an excellent blend of sweet with sour. The yummy home fries had both regular and sweet potatoes. My Hungarian Schnitzel came in a delicious paprika sauce, with what was probably the best ever (perfectly tender yet quite firm) Spätzel, and a great pickled cucumber salad. (Incidentally, this place also has an extensive cellar of German and Austrian liqueurs and brandies.)

    This was our fourth visit to Manor in Forest Hills, and we have also dined at the Atlas Mall location. Each time we have been more than pleased with the food and the service. We arrived just before the dinner crowd started to build and had a choice of tables. By the time we left, the restaurant was packed. Last fall my wife who is of German descent had a "special" birthday (not telling how old!) and we chose to have her surprise party at Manor. It was a tremendous success. The guests all loved the food and the party room, and the service was outstanding.

We didn't eat the sauerkraut only because neither of us likes sauerkraut. It had nothing to do with Manor Oktoberfest. The potatoes were fantastic also. I have absolutely no complaints.
