Beautiful venue, average food

I'll start off by saying that this is an absolutely gorgeous venue and it is certainly picturesque enough for weddings or anything special event (I can easily see why it's popular). I came here for a business dinner back in November and I was definitely impressed; I had driven by here quite a few... read more

We just came from a Bat Mitzvah in March 2015 and went to The Manor on Prospect Ave. in West Orange, NJ for the reception. There were 2 affairs hosted at the same time and we were well separated from the other reception. Our reception consisted of a cocktail hour, followed by a sit down buffet (buffet in the same...

Small wedding, but the food was first class. Service for groups was well planned with the exception of the delay for cutting the cake. Children went hope due to the delay.

Went on a date one evening just after Valentine's Day and had a great meal. Our waiter, David, was very knowledgeable about food and wine and carried a great conversation with my date about luxury cars. The food was excellent, very creatively presented, and the dining room(s) are beautifully decorated (with chandeliers bigger than my car). The foie gras was... More

The last time I was at The Manor for their buffet, was 4 years ago. My husband I went the other night for my birthday. I was concerned that we would be disappointed because the venue is old and stale. We were NOT disappointed and they 'still got it'. They have done some renovations, they have new dinnerware and our... More

We booked a table for 4 on a Saturday night in February. The Manor is a beautiful old style mansion. We were told there is 2 seatings 6 to 8 or 8 to 10. We picked the 6 to 8 PM seating. We were also told that they prefer men to wear Jackets. That doesn't mean you have to wear... More

My husband and I threw a big Sunday night wedding - both the ceremony and reception - for our son and daughter-in-law. The Manor was on top of every detail with courteous and knowledgeable help. Our event was beautiful from start to finish.

Attended a wedding reception there in early January. Had modest expectations taking into account the problems associated with maintaining high standards when catering for 180 people at one sitting but was pleasantly surprised. The first and most impressive serving was the appetisers, which were presented buffet-style near the open bar for cocktails. These included fresh oysters, jumbo shrimp and smoked... More

Really nice place. I think that it is slightly over priced. Overall it was a good experience. We dined ala carte. I will go back again
