This was easily the single best dining experience I have ever had in my life. The food was remarkable, the service was impeccable, and the ambiance was just right. I went there for dinner a few nights ago for a special occasion, and the entire experience was more than I could have asked for. As far as the food is concerned, it was the best bowl of lobster bisque I have ever tasked, the lobster entrée was prepared just right, and the desert selection and quality was second to none.

We have dined at the Manor
We have dined at the Manor for decades and enjoy celebrating special occasions here.
The wait staff are perfect, perfect service, but not intrusive,.Appetizers were delicious, and the main courses were outstanding. We were early so we went into the Terace Lounge for drinks.
Everyone (6)in our party commented how hot it was in this room.
Understand, this was the same room that we were to dine in.
When I ordered our drinks I commented to the bartender that it was pretty hot in here. He immediately answered snidely , no its not its perfect?! I thought to myself nice way to treat a customer. He was in a shirt with vest and every man in the place was wearing a suit I said to him maybe for you it's perfect but not for the rest of us. Same r

We were so happy there, as
We were so happy there, as always! We have made it a tradition to go there for my mothere birthday. The manor is the yardstick by which we measure other restaurants. I have to tell you - - NONE can compare. It makes no differance how much you spend or which state you are eating in. The maor is in a class all it's own. We were please that one of the waiters recognized us from last year. The piano player is great, as well. We love those Frank Sinatra melodies.

Food is excellent, Service
Food is excellent, Service couldn't be better! Great for an Anniversary or Birthday celebration. I've dined here many times and have NEVER had a complaint about the food or service. It is definitely special. Much more comfortable than many of the other "elegant dining" restaurants in the area.

The Terrace Lounge at the Manor
What a WOW evening. Took grown daughter for a special night just for her - and the Manor staff made it perfect. Ambiance, beautiful sunset, fabulous well and properly trained staff, and most importantly the food perfectly prepared and presented. It being BYO night was the icing on the evening as my bottle of aged Insignia was top notch. It is too bad diners listen to nabobs who dis this establishment as a "was been". Old world service and now food is what I want.

This is my second time dining at The Manor and I must say I was as impressed as I was the first time. Great food, nice atmosphere,
and the staff were professionals (friendly and attentive). Thank you, Manor, for making my second yr wedding anniversary

The ambiance, service and elegant decor are only eclipsed by the unique, flavorful and beautifully prepared dishes that are offered.
The live piano music adds to the entire experience.

Absolutely Lovely & Delicious
Over the top gracious, lovely and delicious. Professional old fashioned service and no corporate regimen, ala Il Mulino, Ruth's Chris, etc. Wine list is awesome and discounted - a bargain. Piano music makes it romantic and upscale all the way. Loved the French Dover sole. As good as the English and half the price.

Fine Dining at its Best
THE MANOR is elegant, the Staff is welcoming and attentive - the food is superb. The filet mignon was absolutely excellent, tender
and cooked to perfection. The Long Island duck was prepared in a delicious sauce and was delightful. I look forward to our next
dining experience there.

The staff was lacking in professionalism, the head waiter's suit didn't fit him properly and it needed a cleaning, some of the
staff served my husband first instead of me. They were all very pleasant, our meal was very good and the piano player's
selections were enjoyable. Overall we had a lovely dinner.

romantic dinner for 2
we have been to The Manor many times for their buffet lobster dinner and to The Terrace for their a la cart dining. We were married at The Manor and had our reception there. We are never ever disappointed. The lobster buffet is OUTSTANDING and dining in The Terrace was the MOST ROMANTIC dinner we have ever had. The service and food and presentation of the food was BEYOND EXCELLENCE!!!

First Class Experience!
This fine restaurant allow customers to bring their own bottles on Wednesday nights thus much reducing the cost of an excellent and well-served dinner in a most pleasant setting accompanied by live piano music. A good value on Wednesdays.

It has been a few years since we have dined at the Manor. This time, the food, service and overall feeling remains up to par. The scenic garden is beautiful as usual. It was a group of 7 of us having dinner. We have ordered a variety of things from California caviar to oysters, and from medium lamp to all veggie. Everything was well prepared and professionally served. My only complaint is that due to the age of the building, the odor of old carpeting/wood/drapery smells were very strong. These can be unpleasant as it feels smoggy in the room after a while.

Delicious duck leg confit
Dinner was lovely, from the fresh bread that was passed throughout to the sweet foie gras with perfectly toasted croutons and duck leg confit that was the best I've had. The duck breast was good, but the flavor and the tenderness of the duck leg confit just falling off the bone was perfect!!! My husband had the artisanal cheese dessert which he loved and I had the bittersweet, white chocolate torte. I would have ordered something else if I knew it had mainly dark chocolate. Overall, it was a good dinner and our French waiter was wonderful!

Great service, atmosphere, food and awesome gardens.

10th wedding anniversary
Celebrated our 10th wedding anniversary at the Manor. We had both our wedding and reception there in 2003.
Excellent food, service ambience and venue

The service was phenomenal. Staff very attentive. Wonderful food. Beautiful setting. Excellent as always.

An Excellent Evening
Dinner is not only about food but also a fine experience in which you are beautifully served in a lovely room accompanied by piano music. The value is therefore good especially on Wednesday evenings when clients may bring their own bottles of wine. Without that expense dinner here is only slightly more expensive than in other local fine restaurants. One never feels rushed and this therefore makes not only for fine dining but an excellent evening hopefully spent in the company of loved family and friends.

My husband and I enjoyed our 22nd wedding anniversary here. Although we are local we had never been to the Manor. We are planning on trying out their brunch next with the kids. Highly recommnend.

From your greeting by the host to the last cup of coffee, the entire experience is nothing short of wonderful!!! The staff is attentive, but not overbearing or intrusive. The food is superb.Menu selections are gourmet and each prepared to perfection. Feel pampered and celebrate at the Manor!!

My wife and I were celebrating our 20th wedding anniversary. We both opted for the five course special. Each course was excellent the service could not be better. Just simply an fantastic experience in a very romantic setting.

We went to the Manor for a birthday celebration and I have to say the food was absolutely DELICIOUS! The atmosphere, ambience and decor were great. I will absolutely make reservations to have dinner there again in the future!

Memorable dining experience
Great food, very friendly and accommodating service. Went there for a special occasion and plan to go back to make other occasions special. Has everything we look for in a fine dining experience. We enjoy going out for fine dining frequently and the Manor may have just become our new favorite place to go.

We have been dining at the Manor, ala carte dining, for many years and have never been disappointed. It's a gem with ambiance that cannot be found in other places. Food is superbe and service wonderfu.
