The Manor House
Voted by The Houston Business Journal as Best Place for Power Lunch, The Manor House proves that there's no better place to do business than on the Bayou.
Just loved it. Beautiful ambience and great service. Food very good! Thanks
It was a pleasure to have lunch in a quiet place! William was very helpful waiter. The fish was a dream! Excelent!
Perfect spot for a lunch meeting. The food and service was impeccable.
Tried Manor House for 1st time for a business lunch. Is convenient to Galleria area. Is now my absolute favorite lunch destination. Very quiet to conduct conversation without distractions. View was beautiful. Decor was impeccable. Tried the Pecan crusted Trout and was best tasting and unique preparation of trout I have ever had. William was the person who took care of us and made it a marvelous experience. Very professional, attentive, and friendly. Explained each entree and accompaniments in detail to allow us to choose the best for our tastes. The entire staff was friendly, inviting, and honestly interested in your needs and enjoyment. Cannot say enough about my first experience at Manor House. I will return soon and often.
I would go back!
HRW menu was great! Both the Heirloom tomato and the peach salad were great! The trout were wonderful, especially the sauce. Good service. Beautiful setting. Love the experience!
Great ambiance with history ans menu. Service was excellent and the experience created a memory.
Great atmosphere. Beautiful grounds. Tea room-ish old flare from ladies wearing gloves & hats.
Kayla, Giovonni, Julio, Jacob and his colleague, as well as, other staff, were friendly, patient and knowledgeable . My junior colleague stated, "I will bring a date here". I really enjoyed the portion sizes. I do NOT like wasting food. I also like the exclusiveness and ambiance. I will soon return.
We haven’t been here in a while, beautiful ambiance, food and service impeccable. I had smoked pork loin for main entree and my husband had pecan crusted trout, both dishes were super delicious. Our server Giovanni was very friendly and knowledgeable. Will definitely be back soon.
Excellent well served food by professional staff.
We had trout as main course. Compared with other restaurant of big hotels, the food was outstanding. And overall experience was wonderful!
Lovely room and ambiance. Outstanding staff. Great food. A little load.
Food was delicious but boy was the service so incredibly slow considering it was a pretty slow day in the restaurant.
Two of us went for HRW. The peach salad was good, but he heirloom tomato salad was wonderful! We both love the trout almandine. It’s the best version we’ve had amongst some of the well know creole kitchens in Houston. We added a dessert to share - the mango key lime pie was divine!!! Service was impeccable, as was expected of a restaurant of this caliber. Great lunch!!!
The food is outstanding. The service is impeccable. The ambiance reminds me of old Houston dining; elegant yet comfortable. I live the Manor House. I wish they were still open for dinner.
A delicious meal in a gracious atmosphere . We will definitely return.
My fiancé and I visited the Manor House, we are considering it for a wedding venue. It exceeded any expectations we may have had in comparing it to other venues of the same historical stature and price range. We throughly enjoyed the service, the food and the ambiance. We will be booking our wedding at this venue and would highly recommend it; not only on the pleasant experience but what is included with the wedding packages. Our contact, Joan McNight was easy and wonderful to work with and we look forward to working with her while we plan our wedding.
The restaurant was lovely, the food delicious! They were very accommodating and even gave me dessert to celebrate my birthday. It was perfect.
My first time but my mother is a regular - after Friday I can see why. Outstanding meal.
Beautiful location. Wonderful luncheon menu. service and food top notch.
have been here several times. always good. waiters attentive. valet (Richard) and all very kind.
Great place for business or just a pleasant conversation plus good food with friends. Greatly appreciate the attention given by the staff. First class place.
Always consistent five-star service and food in a comfortable and relaxing setting. Service is timely and on-point. Definitely not the noisy bustling restaurant model that seems to be more and more prevalent. Highly recommend The Manor House.
The chicken salad was a little overpriced but tasted delicious!
Never a disappointment in service, taste or ambiance!
So very perfect! They just don't make them like this anymore!
Just wanted a pleasant, enjoyable lunch.
Always special to dine at The Manor House. My go to place . Love it there
Hadn't been to the Manor House in several years and now am wondering why. Food is good, although a sample of 1 is obviously too small to be valid. The main advantages of the Manor House are:  convenient to my West Loop office;  quiet, compared to the average Houston restaurant;  wonderful setting--you would never know you are in the middle of a large city;  nice ambiance, tasteful without being over-the-top elegant;  friendly staff;  discount if you are a member of the Houstonian Club. What is not to like? Wished they were open for dinner = my only complaint.
Excellent location for lunch with conversation. Impressive food. We each had the daily special of redfish topped with crawfish etouffee along wit the side Southwest salad.
Excellent place for a quiet, enjoyable lunch with friends.
Charming location with very nice staff. Food was a tinge below average for price and ambience.
Always great food and service.
Unbeatable ambience. Convenient location. Easy parking.
Good for business lunches as you can actually carry on a conversation. Excellent food and service.
The Manor House is located in one of the most historic buildings in Houston, where President George H.W. Bush hosted many foreign dignitaries and heads of state in his presidency. Everyone who dines here in this homelike setting is afforded VIP status.
Thank you Amber for a nice welcome. Love the food. The best pork dish and the beef special so yummy. Thank you Eduardo for excellent service.
Wonderful lunch for getting together with long time friends
Wonderful holiday lunch - everything was beautifully plated and delicious. One of the best beet salads we've ever tasted. The seafood crepes were awesome! Service was friendly, professional and on point.
We love the Manor House. We miss the chips and mustard with the Beef Carpaccio, the Steak Diane, and the pecan pie. We are old fuddy duddies but these were really great dishes. We did enjoy the Oxtail soup, Texas Black Angus Filet Mignon, and the special Crispy fish(although the potatoes and green beans were bland, maybe Corn Succotash and Croquette would have been a better option for this). The pumpkin pie was quite good ). We will be back!
