Thank you for a great lunch and great atmosphere. We are very sad to see the Manor closing. We have had many events there from celebrating my Mom's 60th birthday to my stepdad's memorial. Wishing the owners all the best on their next adventure.

We had a great family dinner at The Manor. We are very sad that it is closing, and that we won’t be able to share another meal here again!

You’re closing, so no point. Establishment will be missed by many, but as long as the staff land on their feet I’m ok with that. Good luck.

We were sad to hear that The Manor Bistro was closing it's doors, as we have had many lovely dinners there over the span of 29 years. We have never had a bad meal there either. Yet when we went for my husband's birthday on March 17, he ate his meal and unfortunately got very sick after eating the burger. Sad to remember our final dinner there on that note...

The Manor Casual Bistro is an adorable, quiet little venue! The food was delicious, it wasn't busy which was nice for having a conversation.

The service was awful; the server disappeared once the food was dropped off; we weren't offered dessert (and watched her offer it to the other tables around us); we had to flag her down to get the bill (but continued to walk past us, ignoring us). If I was to go back, I would ensure I wasn't served by the same lady again.

I would definitely recommend The Manor to anyone. The service was excellent. The atmosphere is nice and relaxing, we liked the fireplace, it was very cozy. The food was amazing. We had the charcuterie to start then I had the tuscan pasta, both were delicious. The price point is about average, I would say it's quite reasonable especially considering the quality of the food. The place is great for a romantic dinner or a nice quiet family dinner. There were a lot of different segmented dining areas if privacy was a concern as well.

Very disappointing. Attended for brunch. Food was bland and uninspired. One dish sent back to the kitchen, beef was dry stringy and over salted. Potatoes were cold and the furniture was unclean.

Overall, this was a disappointing experience. Paying for a brunch like this felt like a bit of a slap. Server was nice and attentive, but the kitchen clearly needs some direction. All three dishes we tried were less than one would expect from a restaurant with this much tenure. Will not return.

We were pleasantly surprised the server remembered us, great food, great service, unique location with a wonderful ambiance. We were saddened to hear they are closing. We will go one more time before they do and hopefully more will follow.

On a frigid Sunday in February, around a full house of boisterous brunch-goers, I went to The Manor for possibly the final time before they shut their doors at end of March. Cozy but pretty, great window view onto 125 St, I had the Beef Benedict (unctuous & filling) and partner had the Spaetzle Hash (unique & tasty). With coffee the bill was $47, service friendly and quick. With limited brunch options in the DT core, this classic tucked in behind & around Urban Diner (the owners' focus) was a great choice, and reminded me how much I'd enjoyed the space in years past, especially on the summer patio. Thx for the memories, Manor!

We've been attending for years and the Manor has never disappointed. Glad they continue to be part of the fabric of Edmonton and the Old Glenora area.

Manor is my favourite restaurant, and feeling very sad knowing they are closing in March! It was areal neighborhood gem! The patio is one of the best ones in the city! Hopefully, whoever bought it will want to continue tradition.............

Love this place! Food is good and you can have a conversation without blasting g music. The restaurant is in a converted old house, so the ambiance is really calm and friendly. Great for both lunch and dinner.

Regulars for years. But this time some of our favorite dishes were no longer offered. The special (beef) and the menu item (pork) were cooked nicely but portions were so small I was eyeing McD's on the way home. Will explore other options for a while.

Fabulous place for brunch! Great service, lots of menu choices and fresh ingredients. I had the Heart Stop breakfast burger and it was delicious! They add fresh cut potatoes as a side. Book soon as sadly, they will be closing their doors in the new year. Moving onto other ventures.

Service was very slow. In fact, the server never brought our bills and we had to go downstairs to pay after waiting a long time. The food was only okay, which was disappointing given the price.

Nice and quiet, cozy atmosphere with meals that taste home cooked. I had a fantastically seasoned and perfectly cooked salmon with the tastiest risotto I had in a long time and my husband enjoyed the steak. Dont miss out on their tiramisu. Good wine list as well. We will be back.
