My family and I went to the Seafood Buffet on Saturday night (which costs $10 more per person for a Saturday as opposed to other nights). What I loved about it was that you can get unlimited lobster tails (the whole lobster is halved, not cleaned out) and they were delicious. There was also a... read more

My husband and I went to The Manor to celebrate our wedding anniversary. The service was awful and the food mediocre for the price. We will not be returning and would not recommend this restaurant.

I haven't been here since my college days in the late 80s, it is still a gorgeous place to have a wedding, prom, or any special event. The ambiance was romantic and the landscape exquisitely breath taking

Came to the Manor for Mother's Day dinner buffet with a group of 12. For the amount they charge per person ( i think it was around $75 a head) without alcohol or anything - they should be ashamed. There was a small, poor selection of food and it wasn't even that good. One would literally have to eat the... More

Lovely formal dining place. There's a hall for a la carte with a live pianist. There's a hall for Full eat all you can Buffet. Upstairs there's a ball room dancing hall under a day light (or moon light at night?) dome. Every place exhibits European ambiance. Excellent food, excellent service. Enjoyed particularly their buffet with lobsters, fresh shrimp, fresh... More

Normally, when I attend weddings at The Manor, I am not disappointed. I will never return however, for a large scale staggered event like Easter dinner. Four of us had the 6:30 time slot. We arrived early and enjoyed a few cocktails in the piano-bar room. The pianist was excellent and we enjoyed the intricate food displays showcased in the... 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
