WEST ORANGE, NJ - OpenTable, a leading online restaurant reservation service, recently named The Manor Restaurant as a Top 10 Best Overall Restaurant in the tri-state area as part of its Diners’ Choice Awards, as voted by users of the web-based service.
The Manor Restaurant shares the recognition with restaurants such as Daniel on the Upper East Side, Gramercy’s Eleven Madison Park, and Blue Hill at Stone Barns in Pocantico Hills. OpenTable reports that the Diners' Choice list is generated over a 60-day period from feedback forms provided to diners by the service after restaurants confirm the guests who made the reservation have indeed been “seated” (e.g. once there is confirmation a guest has dined at the establishment). In all, OpenTable claims to have tabulated votes by more than 2,353,900 diners across all of its Diners’ Choice lists for the United States. The Diners’ Choice lists are updated with new data multiple times per year.
Since 1956 (and now in its 56th year of operation), The Manor Restaurant has been a dining destination for generations of restaurant patrons. It’s long-standing dedication to providing a classic fine-dining experience, has earned it countless awards and recognitions, including a current and unmatched record of 24-consecutive AAA Four Diamond Awards; a feat not achieved by any other restaurant across the whole state of New Jersey, and surpassed by only two other restaurants in the entirety of the United States.
Bordered by Eagle Rock Reservation to the east and situated on 20 acres of manicured gardens, The Manor’s sprawling architecture hosts classic banquet rooms, fine dining rooms and Italianate fountains. The Manor is a veritable village of craftsmen and artisans, including a coppersmith responsible for creating the copper pots used in the restaurant kitchen and a baker who produces, in the onsite bakery, everything from rolls and baguettes to wedding cakes, pastries and gingerbread houses for weddings and à la carte dinners.
