Restaurant Review

The Manor Restaurant is a landmark for dining --- a destination restaurant set in an elegant country house with acres of magnificent gardens.

A great place to celebrate a special occasion.

They serve up well prepared American cuisine with pizazz. The decor while ornate, is bound to add to an unforgettable dining experience.

The dark wood-paneled walls and very large crystal chandeliers provide an atmosphere of elegance.

The wine list and service are exceptional. Desserts are well prepared and sumptuous.

Not in a hurry to rush home? After dinner take a walk through their beautiful gardens or wander back for an after dinner cocktail with some romantic dancing.

Sunday's are considered Family Days where they feature an exceptional family brunch buffet and later in the afternoon a family dinner buffet. Buffet dining is in an attractive setting with hand carved ice sculptures, floral arrangements, and antique fixtures

Their signature Lobster Buffet is offered Wednesday. Thursday, Friday, and Saturday evenings.

They are open for holiday dinners throughout the year including both brunch and four-course, a la carte dining experiences for Thanksgiving, Christmas, Mother's Day, Easter and New Year's Eve.

How Do We Review (analyze) Restaurants?

New Jersey Leisure Guide strives to provide analytic restaurant reviews .

The methodology used is research, analysis driven --- as opposed to that of a single restaurant critic or a viewer comment posting board.

Data is gathered from our viewers e-mail restaurant comments, Internet research, and professional restaurant critics. The data is sorted, (weeding out the obvious biased, "bone to pick",  and out of consensus comments), analyzed, and the review is created.
