We've been going to the Manor
We've been going to the Manor for years. It's handy and consistent. This visit though was "half a bubble" off. Not sure why but... We will continue to visit The Manor based on our long and pleasant experience there.

Great for groups, business or dates
We have been to The Manor as a group several times and have always had excellent service and excellent food. Last time's spinach salad with bacon, mushrooms, chevres and a warm honey vinaigrette was just perfect, tart and sweet and salty, all combined. I will definitely order this dish again. Besides food and service, what sets The Manor apart is the way the restaurant is divided up into different rooms. This gives the restaurant a quiet and intimate atmosphere. I also like that the menu is kept mostly gluten-free or has gluten-free options and that, although not huge, it has a good variety of dishes to choose from, all in a medium price range. And, please, let them show you the dessert tray - it is a work of art!

Very quiet as it was the day of the snowstorm. Only 2 other people in the place.

The worst part about dinning
The worst part about dinning in comfort is that most restaurants nowadays have overhead blowing cold air vents on one's head. Your place had none of this, and all air vents were blowing from the floor which makes more sense than having to sit for hours under a slow chill on the head and neck causing sinus aggravations for some and stiff necks at the end of the evening. Not many people know about this factor, and do not realize the side effects of this, so it was indeed pleasurable to sit in comfort dinning and socialzing in a sensible atmosphere.
Music = nice, not too loud, and yes I will certainly return and bring my guests as well. Will recommend to others, Could even have parisiene music to suit the mood and possibly piano smooth jazz.

Must try Edmonton gem
I treated my friend to a Saturday lunch at the Manor Cafe and it was fantastic. We had the grilled chicken breast sandwich with the pommes fritz. An incredible dish with fresh, made from scratch ingredients that you can really taste. The atmosphere is classy and down to earth, with lovely decor. Can't wait to go back again!

Best Ever Pommes Frites
The best French Fries in the City! Even if you order an entree - you have to get those Fries for an appetizer and share! They come hot - crisp - salted just right and parmesan lightly coated - mmmm good!!

the whole package
The Manor is definitely the whole package. Excellent service followed up by a delicious meal is what we have come to expect every time we go. They have not disappointed. The staff will go the extra step to ensure you have a great meal.

My husband and I went to The Manor Cafe recently for our first date night since we had our 3 month old. It was perfect for a quiet and quaint atmosphere. The food was excellent. We both had the pork special. The waitress was friendly and offered the perfect amount of service. Although the food and wine were excellent we found there not to be many choices. The wine menu is especially limited. Overall our experience was positive and we had a great night.
5/17/2013 4:00:00 PM
The three of us all tried different entrees but they were ALL Great! And the wine was the best red wine I had ever had! We started with a warm spinach salad and then had a veal schnitzel, rabbit dish and the catch of the day (tuna with a butternut squash succotash. Then we ended with coffee--no desserts this time--we were all full!
5/18/2013 4:00:00 PM
The Manor Cafe once again did not disappoint us. We were seated at a great table allowing the 4 of us to have a great conversation. The Chef here is probably one of the most creative in the City. Be assured his 'special of the day' will never disappoint and you will be treated to a very unique and delicious gastric pleasure. Service was great!

One of the best patios in the city
This is a regular spot for me especially in the summer when I can sit on the patio. On my last visit for brunch I had the French toast and it was delicious.

Great food starting to look
Great food starting to look a little shabby needs some work ie tables n
Are chipped and meedrefinishing, clean window sill. Still great service. Would still highly recommend

Food and service were good
Food and service were good but it was way too noisy! You shouldn't come out of a Sunday brunch with a headache. I took 2 (young) seniors out for a special brunch and both had difficulty with the conversation due to the noise level. Is there anything that could be done with the decor to absorb the sound? I have been going to the Manor for years and have only noticed this problem since the most recent renovations. It really took away from our experience.

My wife and I were celebrating our tenth anniversary. We were directed to The Manor by a friend at work. What a great decision to visit the Manor for the first time. Everything about our visit was excellent. From the moment when we saw the location, to the warm reception we got as we entered. The wait staff were great, all of their recommendations were perfect. The wine they chose for us was perfectly balanced with our meal. The ravioli starter was crazy good. My wife had the halibut and I had the lamb. I just can not do the food justice with my words. The waitress and kitchen staff were very accommodating to my wife's allergies. That was one of the best meals we have ever had in Edmonton. Please go and enjoy.

We enjoyed the combination of flavours and incorporation of fresh food items. We have and will return.

one of the best in the city
The Manor is among the best in Edmonton. We had an outstanding dining experience.

Service and food here was great, as it always seems to be! Nightly special was delicious as always, and the cocktails created by the bartender were delish!

Lovely restaurant. Food was fantastic and service was great. A perfect spot for lunch with the ladies.

Best patio in Edmonton
The weather had been beautiful all day so we wanted to sit outside. The Manor took reservations for their patio but also saved an indoor table for us in case an evening storm came up - that was very good of them we thought. The service was friendly and the new menu was great.

Another great experience at Manor
Another satisfying experience at the Manor cafe. Have been coming here for years, never disappointing
7/3/2013 12:00:00 AM
Joshua was humourous and had the right touch providing reccomendations for wine and such.. The dessert was an almond concoction and would satisfy any sweet tooth. Never having been there it was a wonderful find.

Best summer lunch spot
Great place to spend with friends on a sunny day. The patio is lovely,quiet and secluded. Delicious food and very helpful waiter with suggestions.

Great summer patio
The Manor has one of the best patios in the city. Fine dining outdoors in Edmonton is a rare treat and I highly recommend this restaurant for anyone wanting to enjoy our brief summer weather in style.

Loved this place
Went for Sunday Brunch to The Manor. It is a very nice old house converted into a restaurant, located in old Glenora. Not far from the Provincial Museum. Tons of character. We ate inside, but there is a good sized patio for outdoor dining. I had the French Toast and it was absolutely delicious! I would definitely go back again.
7/21/2013 12:00:00 AM
A great place to enjoy meal
I and my husband went to the Manor several times, as typical Chinese who'd rather cook at home than eat western fast food, we're amazed by them. Food is absolutely delicious and enjoyable, we tried brunch and lunch, both awesome. Service is great, too.
We'll surely visit them again and strongly recommended to everyone!
7/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
Yum! With great service
This is a hidden gem! Almost don't want to share this place with others as I loved it so much. Took my husbnad there for his birthday dinner. I have a gluten allergy but Quinn and the chef made every acoomdation so that I could eat almost anything off the menu. Food was fresh, unqiue (quinoa and lettuce salad...YUM!) and you know the chef prepared everything right then with care! The desserts were the BEST and we will be recommending this place to others for a nice place to go.

Mid week special
Wednesday at the Manor turned out to be a memorable evening with friends. From the prompt and very courteous service to the food that arrived in a timely manner and well prepared. The appetizers were great and the main course was to sing praises. Halibut, schnitzel, squib (sp?), everyone course enjoyed by the participants. One could carry on a conversation without competing with loud music or other clients. All in all a restaurant to keep on the return to list. This particular evening we did not partake of the wine list - our choice.
7/31/2013 12:00:00 AM
Although The Manor has been in the High Street area for years, I'd never taken the time to dine there. However, they had recently changed the menu to include one of my favourite things - squab (aka. Pigeon), so I had to go try it. All of the food was flavourful, delicious, and perfectly portion, not too little and not too much. I look forward to a return visit.

Lunch with the ladies
Had a wonderful lunch last week, chicken sandwich, quinoa salad with chicken , spinch salad with chicken were some of the dishes we ordered. Ate outside on the patio- nice and shady, it was a very relaxing lunch. Server was attentive without hovering , which is what we appreciated.

Enjoyable lunch on the patio.
Enjoyable lunch on the patio. Good food and accommodating, attentive staff.
Have eaten here quite a number of times for brunch, lunch, dinner and special events and have never been disappointed.

The Manor dining experience was impeccable. We opted for an outdoor table and the weather was exceptional, staying warm well into the evening. The patio backs onto a sidestreet with no traffic so the lack of street noise created a calm and exclusive atmosphere. We'd selected a bottle of sparkling wine and some appetizers: scallop ceviche and steak tartare. They were perfect. The service was impeccable, out waiter looked after us with the just the right amount of attention.

Amesome lunch. The food and service was excellent, . Really well run relaxing place, they owners must be very caring.

Lunch With The Girls
We are a group of retired teachers and what better way to celebrate the fact that we were NOT in the classroom than having lunch on a very lovely patio on a lovely warm afternoon. Our server was so friendly and took such good care of us. Wine was excellent and so was the food. We loved our time there and will definitely be back!
9/4/2013 12:00:00 AM
From the moment I stepped into the building until I left, the staff amazed me. I was promptly and courteously greeted and seated. The waiter was totally outstanding with his demeanor. He was very entertaining and friendly. I would say this has been my best dining experience in Edmonton. Food was to die for. Wine list is exceptional. Especially enjoyed being able to sample the chefs test strudel and give my opinion on it. A must experience for anyone who wants a nice evening out.

Been to the Manor a few times
Been to the Manor a few times now and it's always been a good experience. Nice patio for brunch, server was good, food was good, Mimosa was good!

We went there for my daughters birthday for lunch. We all had separate things, and all our meals were good. We shared tiramisu for dessert. It was also very good. Service was great.

Was not that hungry when I
Was not that hungry when I arrived at the restaurant and ordered an appie. Was told that would be too small a portion and that I should have ordered something else. Wrong! Appie was filled with cheese, fried basil leaves & very filling. Salad was tasty but also substantial and we all ended up with take home bags. Food was tasty - both the Caprice appetizer and the Caprice salad flavoured with slivers of salted charcuterie - a nice contrast to the freshness of the greens, the acidity of the heirloom tomatoes, and the light dressing. Mains were slightly more expensive than many restaurants, but interesting in description.

Nice spot for lunch
I have been to the Manor several times for lunch and it has always been a pleasant experience. As usual the food and service were both good but we were the only customers which felt odd. I fear we might lose a nice quiet lunch spot if more people don't support this neighbourhood gem.

'Manor' a Gem
Never disappointed yet in this charming restaurant. Best soup in the City! Friendly service and great food!
11/6/2013 4:00:00 PM
Love this restaurant. Recommend highly! You may not want to book the corner table by the fireplace at lunch though - the noise of other people made it very difficult to hear at this particular table - it was as if the noise was trapped into the corner - first time this has happened there - never experienced this before there.
11/12/2013 4:00:00 PM
Both myself and my Plus One enjoyed returning to the Manor with each other - this time. Quinn was excellent in the Service he provided and all was done timely. We appreciated the "no rush" as we enjoyed after dinner coffee. Desert was great tasting and fun!! Thank you for allowing us our romantic time :-)
