The Manor Casual Bistro Ratings and Reviews
It was okay. Went for brunch and shared classic eggs benedict and the pear and brie French toast. The egg was poached soft as requested. Otherwise the benedict was nothing special. The potatoes it comes with are good. We both liked the French toast better. They have espresso, which is also standard, nothing special but not horrible. It was very quiet - we got there as it opened and were the only ones for Saturday brunch for quite a while. Sometimes there was no music and they played the same song twice in a row. The inside needs a facelift. Decor is dated.
My guest and I really enjoyed the ambiance and the meal. Initially we were impressed that there were several $10 lunch options. Yet, we felt our choice should have included a bit more protein (4 oz?), and would have paid more if that is what is needed. While we really enjoyed the Thai pasta salad, there were only 2 shrimp and maybe 2 slivers of chicken breast.
The presentation and flavour was very nice though.
Service was terrible.
We sat in a room with three tables, each table had only two people and had a seperate server for each table which we thought was great.
The table beside us arrived 15-20 min after us and were served and finished eating before we givin our starter salads.
The waiting and delays only got worse from there on. The waiter eventually stopped coming to our table, our dishes were not removed nor were offered dessert.
The waiter was preoccupied with the upstairs tables and also seemed to be under the influence of something.
Extremely disappointed that other servers didn’t step up to fill an obvious void in service.
We will never be back and will also let our friends know about our experience.
Being hearing-impaired, I prefer a very quiet environment for conversation. I asked for a quiet area and we were invited to into the small dining room where we were the only guests. It was perfect. The food was delicious and the service friendly and attentive, but not overly so.
My partner and I were celebrating our 5th anniversary and decided to try somewhere new. The food was excellent. The service was very good. Once I advised the server about my food allergies, she was e very attentive and asked the proper questions. We will definitely be back.
I have been here for brunch multiple times and it is always fantastic. The restaurant is very bright and cozy. The place to eat brunch on a rainy or chilly morning. The eggs Benedict is amazing and clearly made with care for the ingredients. The seafood crepe is fantastic as well and they certainly aren't skimpy on the seafood filling. The prices are very reasonable for the quality and quantity.
We loved our first visit to this restaurant. The food was great, the waiter was great too. Two things that could be improved on. We weren’t greeted upon arrival and the staff looked frazzled and annoyed when we stopped them to say we were there. Many passed us without saying anything. Turned out a big party had arrived that had members who couldn’t go upstairs so the restaurant seating had to be reorganized. That’s fine, but some communication would have been good. We felt ignored initially. Also, my daughter had a birthday, which I mentioned on the reservation. When we arrived there was 2 big blackboards with Happy Birthday Gary! on them. Guess he was the birthday boy of the big party. My daughter’s birthday was not acknowledged. The waiter did add her name to Gary’s sign upstairs. Don’t know if Gary got a happy birthday slice of cake but my daughter didn’t. They also forgot about a dairy allergy and fries arrived with cheese on them. It may have been a crazy night for them with the big party but the kitchen really shouldn’t mess up an allergy like that. Having said all that, the food was good. We all had a good time too. The desserts were fantastic - although none were dairy free for my birthday girl. Even some fruit would have been appreciated.
