Great food! Adequate time
Great food! Adequate time between courses. Not in a rush to push you out so they can seat the next customer. Great wait staff!
Kudos to the chef, kitchen,and all the wait staff! I can't say enough good things about this gem.

All around excellence
The service was outstanding. Each course was well spaced and they were flexible with mixing the course options. Each dish was uniquely prepared with exquisite flavor. The entire dining experience was outstanding and certainly rivals Inn of Little Washington.

A great Easter Brunch
Definatelly one of our best dining experiencess of the year. The quality of the food was very good although its presentation could have been more creative. The service was exceptional, friendly, professional, and swift. The ambience is one of the best in the greater metroplitan area.

First visit to the Manor House
First visit to the Manor House Restaurant and it will not be the last, our dinner was excellent!! Great to find such a fine dinning 4 star restaurant so close to our new home in Haymarket VA. My wife and I lived in Europe for many years and the Manor House reminded us of some of the great places we enjoyed there. We would definitely recommend this restaurant for the really excellent food and interesting Ambience.

I can never say enough good things about the Manor House. This is one of the best restaurants in the DC area. The food and ambiance are pretty much unmatched. The service is wonderful as well. Love this restaurant!

Quite the find in rural Virginia. We have lived 30 minutes away from this wonderful restaurant for over a decade and didn't realize it until I found it as an option for Mother's Day Brunch by searching for a nice restaurant with availability through OpenTable. After the great food, service, and ambience, this will now be one of our regular selections for fine dining.

A beautiful gem in Virginia; GREAT service, decent prices but the food was delicious. Service was great also. A PERFECT restaurant to celebrate Mother's Day with my wife and family.

out of the way, but worth it
Creative menu, and everything we tried was great. A few lighter options would be a great addition.

Alot of Food!
First time at manor house and I was definitley impressed. We both opted for the 5 course meal and we were filled to the brim by the time we left. This is the first time I ever eaten at a resturant of this caliber and left full, usually you leave still hungry. That is not the case here. The priceing is competitive for this style of resturant. The ingredients are fresh and presentation is thoughtful and the service was profesional but not stuffy. We will definitley come again!

Peace in the Country
The Manor House Restaurant at The Inn at Poplar Springs surprised us in many ways. We started the experience in the late afternoon with a glass of wine and three complimentary temptations from the chef. Temptations are small bites, and we had one savory, one salmon, and one taste of dessert...just right for a small snack. Then, since we are early diners, we found ourselves nearly alone in the restaurant at 6 pm and scored the best window table looking out across the beautifully manicured grounds of Poplar Springs. The food was incredible! The prix fixe menu offers a choice of 3, 4, or 5 courses, and the staff let us split our choices to share. I'm out of room to rave more, but the chef's extras during the meal made the experience wow!

Country Road Leads To Fine Dining
The Manor House has earned our five star rating consistently. Food, staff, ambience, and hassle-free country drive never disappoints! We have enjoyed our visits every time and always look forward to making another Open Table reservation sooner than later. One recent impromptu visit was extra special since we were able to observe a joyous wedding celebration while enjoying lunch. What an unexpected treat that was!

The Chef Continues to Please
We had eaten the previous night at The Manor House Restaurant at the Inn at Poplar Springs and were so pleased we returned tonight. In addition to the delicious food and the focus on local and organic, the little surprises the chef provides are delightful! As we had done the day before, we went to the lounge in the afternoon for wine and the chef's small temptations: savory and sweet. The small bites continued when we went to the restaurant, again at a great window table. The chef sent out a tempting morsel before the first course of the prix fixe menu (we chose 3 courses, which the staff let us split; there are 4 and 5 course options, too). Then in between courses, the chef provided a palate-cleansing bite. Out of room, but wow!

Great food,service and ambiance
Their dinner menu changed for the better from what was available on their web page. All food served was excellent and portions were generous. I tried going for their 5 plate prix fixe but had to leave it at 4 the same as my wife. Service was excellent and well paced. Excellent Virginia wine selection. Beautiful countryside drive. Great value.

Trip Down Memory Lane ...
The Manor House Restaurant is our favorite and always consistent place to go for an outstanding dining experience. Our July 4 visit was no exception. Added to the wonderful lunch and fine service was a test of drink mixology that resulted in a Singapore Sling that took us way back to our favorite club "back in the day." Do not hesitate to take a drive to the country. Avoiding traffic is always a benefit, plus lunch or dinner is top quality.

Consistency is Five Stars
We are consistently impressed with our dining experience at Manor House. Ambience, service, creative menu selection have always been top quality. I sense that the staff are all truly invested in providing their patrons with a memorable, enjoyable visit. This establishment will not disappoint!

We have been to the Manor House several times for dinner and this was not the best experience there. The food was outstanding. The service was lacking in attention to detail and the servers seemed less trained and very young compared to our past visits. We generally have 2-3 bottles of wine and enjoy the extensive wine list - however we were told after each bottle we ordered that it was the last one of the wine we had chosen, but the owner could run to his house and get one he had there if we wanted to wait a few minutes for it and it was the only Pinot Noir on the menu!! We were also told by our waiter that there was an upcoming change in management. We are nervous about taking a group to dinner there any time in the near future.

Went here for my wife's birthday. First adult night out since we had our son 10 months ago. Great place in the middle of nowhere. The food was fresh and fantastic. We both got the 5 course meal. Only negative was the marshmallow they give to you with the check. Not a huge fan of the rose water in them. But overall, had wonderful night.
