Rather expensive for the location and menu selections. Staff was extremely accommodating and pleasant. Did not have specific specialty cocktails (they have a list of specialty cocktails they can make, French 75 was not one of them).

It was very expensive. The food was good, although the lobster tail was dry. We appreciated the ambiance and the service but our meal was $182 plus tip for dinner for two. That included just one glass of wine. We would go elsewhere.

French restaurant that is part of the French Manor Inn. Reservations required, jacket for gentlemen requested. Not sure if the restaurant can accommodate guests who are not staying at the hotel. Need to call for reservations & availability.

Excellent food exquisitely prepared.

Home made breads, butter and desserts. Decent selection on the wine list. Dinner menu offers a small but varied selction of beef, lamb, chicken, fish, seafood and (I think) vegetarian. Dinner is EXPENSIVE, but worthwhile for a special occasion, especially a weekend getaway at the hotel.

If staying at the hotel, a wonderful, French-style breakfast is included in the room rate. Those dishes are also excellent.

The service was fabulous. I had the duck leg napolean which was creatively presented and absolutely fabulous. I never saw something like this previously. My wife had the halibut which was beautifully prepared with a nice crispy skin. Also had a nice Chardonnay. I enjoyed the cozy atmosphere of the room. Although it was crowded, the noise level is not a problem at all

Very remote location. Roads under heavy repair. Manager mislead us on the situation. Very disingenuous.

Food was more American cuisine than French. No true French dishes. Very overpriced.

Staff a bit condescending.

We had a delicious meal here, in a wonderful atmosphere - just happened to be in the area and were looking for a nicer place for dinner. This must be the nicest and most gourmet place in the area! The setting is magnificent, just so beautiful. The dining rooms are beautifully appointed, and they clearly have met their goal of creating an upscale, elegant dining experience. (We eat out a lot so I can compare to many excellent restaurants in Philadelphia.)

The food is delicious, interesting menu options and creatively prepared and presented. The staff was attentive and professional. The only area where I take a little issue is that it is a little pricey, even compared to similar restaurants in Phila - it is in the high end of those (like Del Frisco's). A little less expensive, given the area, would maybe draw more people. I'd go back for a special occasion, but for me to be more or a regular I'd love it to be just a little less.

The place was nice and quiet but the service was very long (30 min to get the appetizers). A little bit expensive regarding the quality of food (an entrée was supposed to be with morels but they change it to regular mushrooms with the same price).

The ambiance at the French Manor was nice, staff was very friendly and it had a more upscale feel to it. Getting wine was a bit of a problem, since the bottle we ordered was first not chilled then speed chilled and wound up being the wrong bottle. Then the next bottle which was something different (procecco) was said to be ready to go, but wasn't chilled either and we had to wait for that. The restaurant however did comp us 2 drinks while we waited. My partner had the Elk and loved it, and I had the fish special which was good but could have been better. The fish which was a white Kampachi fish was nice, but oddly paired with a mango puree which alone was tasty, but didn't pair well with the side dishes of the garlic risotto and black trumpet mushrooms. All in all though very nice.

My wife and I enjoyed our anniversary dinner at the French Manor. The dining room is breathtaking and a lovely setting for a special occasion. The food was beautifully prepared and presented. The duck breast was divine. Service was leisurely but friendly and competent. However, the staff had problems keeping up with the needs of a full dining room with lapses in taking orders and bringing the bill. Overall, a lovely, memorable meal although very pricey. The sporadically non-enforced rule requiring gentlemen to wear jackets is misguided and archaic and should either be enforced or dropped entirely.

We ate on the patio and it was lovely. I had the Chilean sea bass ...it literally melted in your mouth. The bamboo risotto was creamy and delicious. My husband had the duck...scrumptious. For appetizers, I had the crab crepe and my husband had the carpacio... fabulous.the wait staff was attentive but not intrusive.
Truly a wonderful dining experience.

French Manor is a great experience. They have fantastic food, including steak that melts in your mouth. The service is friendly and comprehensive. They provide an amuse-bouche and palate cleansing sorbet in addition to the meal you order. The food is always very good--we ate here the night before our wedding and again on our anniversary and loved it both times. They have a good selection of wines, including Honig's Cabernet Sauvignon, which was a fun surprise! Zero complaints for me. It seems they are sometimes buys and sometimes not. We first went on a Friday and were one of two couples in the restaurant, but on Saturday, it was packed! It still did not get too loud. I someday hope to stay in the accommodation that has a staircase to the reserved table in the restaurant. Beautiful landscapes outside, as well!

I don't know what the bad reviews were about. The first wine we selected was available, the service was impeccable, the staff friendly and courteous, and the food delicious and perfectly portioned. The scallops could have been fresher but being we were in the mountains in the middle of nowhere that is understandable.
