What can I say? Everything about this restaurant was impeccable. The service, food decor and ambiance was perfect. I have tried to think of anything that was amiss and have come up with nothing. Yes it is expensive but that is to be expected with the high quality that they provide and well worth it I might add. We later... More

We mentioned to a friend of ours that we were in the mood for lobster and she asked if we had ever eaten at The manor. We told her we had never heard of it and she said it was one of the most beautiful places to eat and offered to meet us there a few nights later. Oh my... More

Perhaps this was the "in" place awhile ago, but we were disappointed on our recent trip. Our Bronzini was over salted; the short ribs were so-so; and the mashed potatoes were absolutely inedible with an old flavor and grey color. At times the waiters were attentive, but it other times we struggled to find one, and the dining room was... More

We had thirty family members dine here for the Christmas buffet. This was ranked number 1 on open table and it is also a wedding venue. Overall, the atmosphere was nice and the food was descent. The room was very crowded and a little loud. The oysters and shrimp were good and most of the entrees were fine but not... More

This is fine dining at it's best. The Manor opened for business in 1956 in a magnificent building set on acres of formal gardens which previously was farmland & meadows. In addition to several beautiful dining rooms, the facility also features The Dome, a romantic glass enclosed dance lounge & catering facilities for up to 250 people. They serve A... More

We were a little disappointed with the seafood buffet. The lobster tails were half size & we didn't like the way the buffet was set up.

My wife and I went to dinner at The Manor for our anniversary. This is a great place for a special occasion. The grounds are great and the atmosphere within the dining room is fantastic. It's feels like you go back in time a few decades to when going out required more then jeans and a tee shirt, which can... More

We've been to the Manor's Seafood Buffet on numerous occasions. Unfortunately, the price has gone up and the food quality and service has gone down.
