Manor was disappointing. 8pm reservation - sat before valentines day - special evening out. arrived at 745 - no hostess - waited for more than 5 minutes for someone to seat us. Service was incredibly slow - 2.5 hours for app and entree. Table next to us was left dirty the entire stay - no one bused or cleaned it up, another table on the other side was similarly left dirty. Ordered Stags leap Artemis for first glass of wine - $25 a glass. Finished that off well before appetizers arrived. Wanted to order more - but no one was available to take the order - restaurant was not very full. Ordered 2 other glasses of wine - did not get these for another 25 minutes. No refresh on the bread - asked 3 times for more bread. Appetizers was OK - oysters and escargot, lobster bisque - bread would have made it better. Entrees were OK - had chateau briand (sat special) and salmon. These were good. Nothing innovative, but good standard fare. Ordered dessert - no creme brulee? There are only 8 desserts on the menu- 3 of them sorbets/ice cream. No creme brulee on valentines day weekend? Told the waiter we were not happy. Chef came and spoke to us. Asked that we speak to GM, we did not want to take any more time there. total check - valet and coat room tips was $250.00 This was not a $250 dinner experience. I paid the whole check and tipped 20%. Another odd thing was that given the grounds and landscaping of the Manor, the blinds were closed at our table and the others in that section. Why? Not going back anytime soon. Very disappointing.

Enjoyed a very special dinner at The Manor. The food was creative and delicious, the piano player was excellent and personable, and I can't say enough how friendly and accommodating the staff were.

Second time here and it does not disappoint. It's incredibly romantic and perfect for a special date night for a la carte dining. They have a piano player and he does take requests. The food is delicious and the service is impeccable. Its business casual attire but we dressed up a little extra because the atmosphere is perfect for it.

My sister and I took our parents for their 50th wedding anniversary. We live 90 minutes away so they haven't been there since it first opened and they asked about going for years. The bartender was a little aloof, but the rest of the staff was great. The food was excellent from starters to appetizers. I love, love, love coffee and got the Spanish coffee. The process to make it was amazing and it tasted even better. Great time and will be back again for another occasion!

Wonderful atmosphere with excellent service. Food was perfectly prepared and served. Cost is not any higher than other comparable restaurants. Piano in the center of the room with the pianist playing christmas music. Great way to spend our anniversary. Definitely prefer it to the buffet.

The food was not good, it was served cold and my lobster was under cooked. Our server disappeared for long period of time. Upon arriving the wait to get to valet was at least 15 minuets. Coat check was so backed up we took them with us to the bar. Waited again for bartender to take our order. Very disappointed evening.

The food was excellent, ambiance was great, noise level was low and our servers were very attentive. Great place for anniversaries or other special occasions.

We thoroughly enjoyed our dinner at the Manor. The ambiance was perfect, with piano music playing during dinner. The food was delicious and the service was excellent. Would definitely go there again!

Still miss some of the former (and unjustly fired, as I hear) staff, but the kitchen here is still the equal of the top Manhattan places, and considerably cheaper. Had a fabulous meal, and was even able to bring one of my best bottles on a recent Wednesday night. The floor staff still efficient and highly competent, leading to a wonderful night of good food and wonderful service. The reasonably priced wine list has many pleasant surprises, a reason unto itself to come here one night. Pass up the overpriced buffet, and sit in the lovely Terrace lounge for a lovely evening!

Had the opportunity to have my wife's Birthday Dinner with our family at The Manor. The decorations were beautiful, the decor warm and just an overall great experience.

Service was attentive but not intrusive, menu was interesting, but overall the drinks and food were over the top in quality.

I sometimes forget how good The Manor is!!!!

Very good overall. The beautiful room could benefit from updated lighting. The bulbs in the room are harsh and too bright. Sub woofer bass from adjoining space was intrusive and diminished the dining experience.

The waiters are very formal, but friendly and good at making you relax. The only thing better than the service is the food.

We loved the Manor years ago, but it had lost it's "luster" for food and service. We saw a recent article that recommended the food, and decided to try the restaurant again.

The food was decent, but still not like years ago. It seemed that the food is a bit tired with little creativity. The service was just fair, too. The Manor may be great for weddings, but I suggest looking elsewhere for the dinner experience.

We love the elegance and charm of the Manor and dine there several times a year .

It's so nice to get dressed up once in a while for a lovely evening. No backward baseball hats or flip flops to be seen!

Beautiful and delicious as usual, but a la Carte prices are a bit too high. $9.95 for a simple two scoop ice cream dish. $14 per person 2 person minimum so $28 for Bananas Flambé
