Shrimp cocktail really had no flavour... husband steak was not tasty at all... people kept hitting my chair walking by and I couldn’t pull it in any closer to table ... waiters and quest did not even say I am sorry after hitting it... slightly disappointed.

Views are really nice but not really impressed with anything else. We sat down got the menus, ordered a drink and from then on we were asked every 2 minutes if we’re ready to order dinner. I have to tell him that I would call him when I’m ready. Food was unremarkable. Doubt will ever go back. If I drive same distance north/east (live in Union here) I’m in amuch better spot wehawken/Englewood lots of choices. I think that’s the problem, other the Manor they have no competition so they’re meh.

It was after New Year’s Eve. Restaurant was empty yet it took a long time to get our food. we were there for four hours Salads of kale and spinach were wilted and bland, entrees were fine but nothing special, menu choices sparce as compared to last visit, waiter was very nice- have dined here many times but this dining experience missed the mark. However, the view of the city is worth it and I will return.

We have gone to the Highlawn many times. We love the atmosphere and ambience, but think that the food could be varied and upgraded. Other comparable restaurants (for ex, like the Stone House in Warren) do a better job with their food- more interesting, etc. More specifically, your appetizers are quite good (esp shrimp cocktail, excellent). Your entrees are good but not exceptional (fish tends to be good, meats fair- the Fillet Mignon was tender but not very flavorful) and your desserts are overdone and really not appealing. You used to make a wonderful Apple Gallete ( I believe previous chef), and it really hasn't been replaced with anything comparable. Thanks for your request for information. David Miller
