.

We had our wedding reception in The Virginia Room at The Manor May 24 1969. It was a wedding for a princess and her prince. It was elegant and beautiful. That was 40 years ago. Two years ago we renewed our vows and we went back to The Manor for dinner. In fact we took a photo on the circular staircase underneath the chandelier that our original photo was taken on our wedding day. It brought back many many memories, the family (now gone) the excitement, the band, the food and the start of our life together and where we are today.
The original date that we picked was double booked by error and when the reception coordinator notified me, I must say I was pretty upset. However, he gave us another option for three months earlier in the same room and made up for it.
Our day was very special and the staff at The Manor gave us the wedding reception that we hoped for with all the special touches. My father wanted a very special event for his only daughter and he achieved it. So after all these years, I want to say "Thanks for the memories". Mary Ann and John Motto Orange Pk, FL

We try to get to the Manor at least twice a year. I have eaten in many upscale restaurants because of my profession and can state The Manor buffet is one of the best bargains for the money. The quality of the food is consistent and varies with the season. Oysters, jumbo shrimp and lobster are expensive and you can eat all you want. The dessert bar is supreme. We did bring several relatives once who were intimidated by the decor and food. They mostly eat cold cuts at home and found the place to be too fancy.I disagree with the bigoted comment of the previous poster. We Italian Americans don't decorate our homes in such style and never would. The Manor is decorated more in a French Provincial style, with formal gardens, recalling a bye-gone era of opulence and class. When I want diner food I go to a diner; when I want good food, service and class I go to The Manor or similar restaurants. We attended two weddings and had a nice time; however, the cocktail hour was crowded and there were not enough chairs. It's difficult to eat those delicious lamb chops when you are standing! It sure beats most of the food at the church hall and firehouse weddings I have attended over the years, although those are a lot of fun.

I have been to 2 weddings at this location and I wasn't overly impressed with either one. The food was just OK, the service just OK, and the Cocktail hour again OK. In fact the cocktail hour was held in the hallway outside the dining room - not impressive at all.

Beautiful Grounds. This is a wonderful place to have your wedding reception. The service was great and the food is very good. I went to two weddings here and had a very nice time at both. I would recommend them.

I was in a wedding that was held here and thought the place was very pretty. I wasn't too thrilled with the fact that the bridal party kind of got the shaft and was stuck in a room with hardly anything to eat or drink during the cocktail hour. Isn't the bridal party important too? And we didn't have enough chairs to sit down.

The Manor is pretty, but in my opinoin is a little gaudy and over done, kind of like an overdone New Jersey backyard (Sopranos style).

The wedding I went to had an outdoor ceremony, and I couldn't see anything going on up at the alter and I was only a few rows back.

The food was fine, but the reception room had a very, very, low ceiling. It was also a hassle to get to the ladies' room, you had to go out a back doorway, across the lobby, and down a circular staircase.

The wedding was fine, but I probably wouldn't book The Manor for my own.

Really great place for a wedding. The decor is superb and the grounds well-maintained - great for pictures. The food is great and plentyful - the cocktail party has already enough to satisfy 90% of the guests! Service excellent and very professionnal. The price is right - even a bit lower than other places with less choices.

My wife and I went to the Saturday night buffet for $54.95 per person. The lobster and scallops were very good. We were told that the meat was "prime ribs" but instead was a tough, grissly. tasteless slice of roast beef. The mens room has an unnecessary gentleman handing you a towel (notice the bowl of dollar bills appropriately placed). At the end of the meal, observe how easy they made it to figure out your tip (conveniently adding 18% for a meal that you serve yourself). If you decide to spring for this overpriced buffet, skip breakfast and lunch and eat at least 10 lobster tails to really get your moneys worth. Don't even think about trying their "prime rib". It's awful!

I love to watch the Sopranos but don't want to feel like I'm on the set. I felt so disgusting here. Very surprised my friend chose such a style of place. The place was like a busy train station. I have no idea how many weddings were going on when I was there. There was no place to sit down. The valet yelled at the mother of the groom. The parking attendant was rude to us (we didn't want them to park the vehicle since they were rushing everyone else). The food was very average. I had a huge headache, so by the time the cake was served, I got on the road, miraclously my headache was gone.

The Manor in West Orange is exquisite. They can hold more than one event at once but do a great job juggling it because they are accurately staffed. The grounds are beautiful and there are a number of places you can take pictures and your photos will look like you went to different locations. The outdoors area where they hold weddings is incredible and the food is outstanding. The only down side is that this comes with an expensive price tag.

PROS: Beautiful place
CONS: Pricey

The buffet is great- I love the mushroom soup. Lots of good seafood as well. Bartender poured a great gin and tonic. Lunch crowd is mostly older individuals. Perfect place for weddings.
Men must have jackets and reservations are usually required.

The Manor is a very classy place to get married. The grounds and gardens are just beatiful, as are the many rooms that you can chooose from to rent out for weddings and special events. However, a few weddings are done every day, which takes away from the ambiance of the place. The food was amazing, especially appetizers and desserts.
