We have been coming to the Manor for the seafood buffet for about 20 years and have usually loved it. Last night was an exception. We came to celebrate my father's 85th birthday and we were so disappointed . First of all when we were seated, the host didn't pull out the heavy chair for my elderly mother. I think... More

Took my wife on a Saturday evening to the Manor for her 50th Birthday celebration. We had been to the Manor 3 other occasions and wanted it to be a special evening. The waiter staff was extremely attentive as I informed them of my wife's birthday. We were seated in front of the piano in the center of the room... More

I can't thank The Manor enough for all of their hard work during our wedding. The food was excellent and the venue is lovely. We've also been for an excellent evening meal on the restaurant, which was very special, and my wife has been to the brunch buffet a number of times. For all of the available rooms, it is... More

I have to give kudos to the Manor for celebrations. The food was very good, the young servers need a little more experience, especially when you have to ask for cutlery for the next course.

Finally got to The Manor for the lobster buffet. It was spectacular. We arrived about 45 minutes earlier than our reservation due to the lack of traffic. We were seated immediately, which was wonderful. The lobster was the sweetest I have had and the shrimp were also so tender. I tried a tad of everything I could before my stomach... More

We celebrated my husband's 65th birthday with friends. This was our first time at the Manor and we were not disappointed. The setting was magnificent. The seafood buffet had oysters, shrimp and lox (smoked salmon). Lobsters were served non-stop - there were avocados stuffed with crabmeat, lobster tails stuffed with shrimp salad, chilled peach & strawberry soup served in shot... More

I have been dining at The Manor Restaurant since I was a young boy travelling in from Brooklyn just to celebrate special occasions. The ambiance is very regal and glitzy, the grounds are beautiful for a walk after dinner in the gardens (with a photo opp in the gazebo), and the Dome is very nice for drinking and dancing post-meal....

This institution offering elegant catering for the most important celebratory events and a great restaurant is a true rare gem. The first time I drove by it I thought it was a small palace. The first time and every other time I stepped inside I was dazzled. It is beautifully decorated and beyond opulent. The ambience is overwhelming and the... More

We sat there for a good 15 minutes and had to seek out the manager to get the waiter to come over to us... More
