The Manor: Restaurant & Ultralounge
Beautiful space, great service, excellent meal.
The chef does a great job preparing every dish. It may take time to perfect what you will be served, however, it is well worth the wait.
The staff is also attentive! The general manager knows what he is doing! Kudos to everyone! Amazing team work.
We had a table for 7 reserved for the Sunday Drag Brunch! The bottomless mimosas were excellent and definitely bottomless. The food was beyond our expectations and I am a foodie that has had the best from Michelin Star chefs in St. Bart’s. The service was excellent and I would recommend Guy for every occasion. He is attentive and makes the best recommendations. Nothing was missed. Great new place for everyone to try on North Charles. Beautiful building and great staff! We will return for dinner!
Food was wonderful! Servers were still getting the hang of things I think. Atmosphere was great! Highly recommend trying this place.
This was our second visit to The Manor in as many weeks. Excellent food, beautiful atmosphere, nice unobtrusive music. The first visit, we relaxed after dinner in the upstairs lounge and chatted and met new friends. Perfect. On second visit, there was a deejay up there and music was too loud to carry on conversation. Not sure why they hired the deejay, they don't have a dance floor and do not need a dance floor.
We enjoyed ourselves immensely: Beautiful setting; fair prices; Food and drinks were great. We had a lot of fun. Everyone should go here and enjoy & experience the ambiance a wonderful new bar/restaurant! Excellent!!
Great atmosphere food and service! Great addition to Baltimore scene!
So the hostess had a rough night, but they just opened. She wasn't slacking off but was certainly overwhelmed. Management should have given her pagers to identify the next party in line. Blame should go to management. Food was great, and the staff was fun to interact with. Don't judge them off of there first weekend, especially considering it was Valentine's Day. Only issue was with getting people seated in the correct order. I believe they will right the ship. Obviously the folks who got lost in the shuffle are more likely to leave a review. Keep that in mind when reading through the feedback from Valentine's Day weekend! Food was great, they deserve a second chance.
Lord- we sat for 29 mins after ordering just our drinks only to be told that the bartender didn’t have the ingredients for their own suggested cocktails... so my husband ordered a citron and tonic- 15 mins later he got a regular vodka with club soda- in a cracked glass. Sent that back with promises to get it right. Yes tonic on the third try- but just plain vodka not citron....
Then about twenty minutes after we ordered dinner- they told my poor husband they were out of what he ordered! it was seven in the evening and they were out of many entree items on their menu- not a special menu, their everyday menu... He finally found something they had. Wow.
When our server noticed we were waiting for so long, she kindly offered us bread- that she never brought....! After we ate- we skipped dessert. We just wanted to leave.
Who is ordering the supplies for this place? Out of stuff for drinks, food, and it was early on in the evening...omg... what a mess !
It’s a pretty place, but folks, it always has been pretty- even way back when it was the brass elephant... They need a sensible manager to run this place- we won’t be back- we’ll wait for this locale’s next incarnation.....what an ordeal!
Granted it was Valentine's Day, and the place was packed, but some dishes were odd and we were overcharged for what we received. An appetizer consisted of five leaves of endive with some fruit on top. A beet salad with chicken ($$ extra) appeared as a few slices of beets and slices of what looked like boiled chicken. A brand-name champagne was substituted with Korbel (not even on the menu), and one of the sides never arrived. Yet, these mix-ups were not reflected in the bill, which was quite large. It's a lovely place that deserves to do well. But if The Manor plans on marketing itself as a restaurant (not just an "ultra-lounge") the food and service need an upgrade. Another thing -- the dining room is the nicest part of building. The lounge spaces feel somewhat leftover and under-furnished -- not loungey at all. I hope for a better experience next time.
Bad, sadly it was Valentine’s Day. We sat at 5:30 and didn’t leave until after 8:30p. This was because we didn’t get our meals until 90 mins after sitting, only to be given 25% of what we ordered. Once we made our waiter aware of me getting the wrong order and my wife missing things from hers, that’s where the wait got longer(additional 1 hr). What’s crazy is that we were one of the first people to get their meals. Some groups were waiting for 2hrs. Unfortunately we won’t go back, coming from nyc I thought this would be a happy medium; good decor, ambitious menu... but it fell short of the mark. Our waiter, when we saw him, was great and very kind. But I think he knew the whole restaurant was upset and overwhelmed.
The Manor was a lovely experience! Ambiance is just right -- full of drama and romance without feeling like they're trying too hard. Honestly, the food was the same! Delicious and full of complex flavors, without leaning too far into the more experimental / "foodie"-friendly dishes. The service was great. Our server misheard an appetizer order that I wasn't clear enough about, and when they brought the incorrect dish to the table we felt terrible, but the runner and server were so sweet and accommodating about the tiny mistake. Our only [inconsequential] issue was how long it took to receive our food (about 45 mins). But the timeframe was still not unreasonable, and is to be expected from a new establishment still perfecting their menu items. All in all, I was very impressed!
My husband and I went to dinner on the opening weekend of the Manor and had a wonderful time! The ambiance is so chic and beautiful, and we really enjoyed the antique chandeliers and style! We had the mussles to start (delicious broth) and the duck and the pork shank as entrees. Both were delicious, but the real standout was the pork shank! Melted off the bone! We also checked out the upstairs ultra lounge, which was really cool and had multiple rooms to hang out. I highly recommend The Manor for a romantic dinner, a dinner with family or friends, and nightlife! We will be back soon for drag brunch!!! Can't wait!
