  • "The food was some of the test food I've had. I had the Beef Wellington and my wife had the breaded rack of lamb. We had a salad and diver scallops with proscuitto for appetizers and Malbec wine. All food and wine was great the appetizers were a bit small for what im used to but tasted great. The service was also very good."

  • "Another fabulous dinner put together by the Manor team. Just cannot say enough nice things about our dining experience. Too bad more people do not take advantage of the restaurant in the Manor. Their loss in my opinion. "

  • "The food was excellent. Our appetizers were terrific and they were served in a reasonable amount of time. The restaurant wasn't full, so i was surprised that our main course seemed to take awhile, but we enjoyed them when they were served. However, we greatly enjoyed the piano music while we waited - it added a lot to the overall dining experience. In addition, the seating was extremely comfortable."

  • "My husband and I attend the Manor for dinner for my birthday. I dressed up in a pretty gown and he wore a nice suit which was perfect for the ambiance, although not necessary we just wanted to dress up this way. We ate of of the chef tasting menu which was delicious and they even brought me out a special cake with a candle for my birthday. They decorated the plate with the words happy birthday in chocolate. The chef is top notch! We had a salad with crab cakes in it, superb! The services was outstanding, everyone was very friendly and accommodating!"

  • "Great food, great service, quiet, and romantic without being pretentious. Had a lovely dinner for Valentine's day and the staff was great all throughout the night.. Even though it was busy, you never felt rushed and still maintained the quiet romantic vibe. Food was great and wine list was huge (well over 10 pages) but our waiter made some great recommendations."

  • "We dined here on Wednesday for an early valentine's celebration. The Manor does not disappoint. The food is always delectable, with a number of items presented courtesy of the chef. The servers, led by Serge, float through the room as if part of a ballet, always the epitome of grace and elegance. Impeccable attention to detail. You don't find this type of service very frequently. We will most certainly be back for our next special occasion! Thank you to the Manor!"

  • "I should confess we had an ulterior motive for going there . . . we're getting married at the venue in a few months so we were tasting the possible food options before we make a final decision on the menu. It was our first time eating there as well and the experience overall was very impressive, we were seated in a nice quiet section in the back. The waiter who took care of us was very attentive, answering our questions and explaining the specials to us. We were attempting to try a variety of meals, so we tried the lobster bisque, beef carpaccio and for our entrees two different fish. Everything was excellent, prepared and presented with care, and it'll make our final decisions more difficult when the time comes."

  • "My wife and I were using a gift certificate that was given to us for our 25th wedding anniversay. We would probably not have gone to the Manor if it wasn't for that. We loved it and will definitely be back to celebrate there again."

  • "A special night out that was absolutely wonderful! The pianist played delightful music at just the right volume. The wait staff was cordial, helpful, attentive but not overly so. The table spacing was adequate: no one too close or too spread out. The food was delicious - and plentiful. Every course was served in an appropriate amount of time, pleasant to look at, and delectable. It was a completely enjoyable experience."

  • "The Manor's spectacular Terrace Room still sets the standard for traditional elegant dining in New Jersey. You are made to feel special from the moment you enter. Service in the beautifully appointed dining room is professional and efficient. The dining atmosphere is enhanced by the gentle strains of romantic music played by excellent pianists on the grand piano in the center of the room. And, oh yes, the food and drink are the centerpiece of the experience, always well prepared and nicely presented. We look forward to returning to the Terrace Room for many years to come!"

  • "The dining hall was okay; it could have been a little more up to date. I had attended a wedding there once, and I thought the dining side would look alive like the reception hall so to speak. The only complaint I have is that the hostess took too long to seat us even though we had reservations. What I did like was the dance bar on the upper level. My husband and myself were very impressed."

  • "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."

  • "Had an excellent experience at the Manor. Had A la carte dining and the food was excellently prepared and pretty tasty. Our service was a great mix of attentive and unobtrusive, but slightly slow. The decor is very old school and the room was relatively quiet. So, good for romantic evenings, but not the kind of place I would bring a party of younger diners. Extensive wine list with some very good white options. The grounds are also very nice and good for an after dinner picture, particularly in the autumn months. Will definitely visit again"
