Tired restaurant serving poor food – My wife and I had heard that this restauarnt had recently remodeled and changed ownership so we thought we would give it a try. What a disappointment! We were a little apprehensive when we realized we were the only ones in the restaurant for a good part of the evening and now I understand why. When looking at the menu and prices, it appeared we were going to enjoy a fine dining experience. The quality that was served left much to be desired however. Both of our steaks came out flavorless and bland. This place is serving very low grade beef and charging Prime beef prices. Nothing about our meal appeared to be fresh as if they ordered too much food and had it sitting in their freezer for a long time. On an up note, our waiter was attentive, but then again, we were his only table. The worst part was worrying about feeling like we were going to be mugged walking through the poorly lit parking lot on Murfreesboro Rd. Don't waste your money! For a nice meal, find somewhere nice downtown or on West End. I can't imagine this place will last.
Great service substandard food – My wife and I went there for valentines day with high hopes. We like to go somewhere really nice so we decided to go here. When I go there I recognized some of the managment, they used to manage The Stockyard so I was encouraged. My wife and I ordered the crab cakes and onion loaf for appatizers both were excellent. We thought that it was strickly a seafood joint but it is apparently a Steak and (very little) Seafood. I wanted seafood so I ordered "the fresh catch" some sort of snapper or grouper. It sounded quite good the reality was the fish tough like it sat too long in the window which is where it sits before it comes to the table to prevent it from getting cold. The bed of rice was dried out again as if it had been in the window too long. My wife ordered the "surf and turf" the lobster tail was great (deep fried) but the fillet had next to no flavor. When it came out i looked great but was way under cooked she had ordered Medium but it came out closer rare we sent it back to get cooked up to temp. They garciously cooked her a new steak unfortunately it was a about the same. We sent it back and they got it right this time but it still didn't have any flavor or seasoning. They bought us dessert for our inconveiance but it hardly made up for the $150 we dropped (including a tip). On the bright side the atmospehere and service were outstanding.
At these prices, I'd expect more – If you're going for atmosphere alone and a high-price, then go, but if going for extraordinary food to match the extraordinary price, then forget it. Everything sits on a bed of potatoes, roasted chicken on sliced potatoes, fish and scallops on square potatoes, steak on garlic potatoes. How many kinds of potatoes are there? If it hadn't been for the bottle of Greg Norman merlot, we'd have gotten up and walked out. After your meal, don't think the dessert course will fix it. There not good at that either. The Death by Chocolate "decadent" chocolate cake tastes like overbeaten Duncan Hines with Betty Crocker frosting. The creme brulee (I promise) is nothing more than Jello Vanilla Instant Pudding torched on top. The key lime pie was however somewhat different than what you'd find in the grocery isle, so I'll give them that one. At a price tag of over $250 for three, it just wasn't worth it, in my humble opinon. The waiters are great. They will make you feel pampered. Too bad the food doesn't hold a light to how hard they work to make you feel wonderful.
Best Steak and Seafood in Nashville – We recently celebrated my parent?s 50th wedding anniversary at the New Orleans Manor. Everything was wonderful from the moment I first contacted them until they dropped us back off at our hotel. They were very accommodating, even customizing the menu for the occasion and providing a private room. The food was scrumptious and worth every penny. My father exclaimed that the prime rib was the best he has had. This is a great complement since prime rib is his favorite and he has experienced it at many restaurants. My husband, who doesn't normally eat oysters, commented that the Oysters Rockefeller was very good. The Filet Mignon was melt in your mouth tender and the seafood very fresh. The wait staff was very friendly and attentive making sure the evening was special. They even provided a complimentary shuttle service to and from our hotel. The only sad part about the evening was realizing that I would be going back home to Indianapolis the next day and not able to return to the restaurant soon. Rest assured we will make sure to make New Orleans Manor a part of our next trip to Nashville.
Wow! What a difference! – I had heard through some friends that the restaurant had re-opened and it was completely different, but WOW! First of all, NO MORE BUFFET! Yipee! The food was amazing, the service was friendly and the restaurant has been given a makeover. The last time I was there it looked so dreary and old and now it is absolutely stunning. When we entered on Saturday evening we were blown away by the beautiful Christmas decorations and how fresh everything looked. What a great first impression. My filet was cooked perfectly and my husband said that it was the best grouper that he had ever had. I asked if I could look upstairs and it is just as beautiful as downstairs. There has been a lot of TLC put into this place and it shows. Finally! Definitely recommend and can't wait to go back.
Best Crab legs – Everything about this places is good, and a variety to boot. We came with a huge group, which they were wonderful. the food is good, try it
I like it... – I like the Manor alot, but I really like crab legs. If you don't like them, then don't go because thats the best part. The other things on the buffet are good, but not as good as the crab legs. I took my parents who live close to the beach and get alot of great seafood, and they LOVED it. It's worth going at least once.
Absolutely the best seafood buffet!! – New Orleans Manor is the best place for a seafood buffet. The crab legs are incredible and the oyster rockefeller is fabulous. They also have really good prime rib. The service has been impeccable every time and the owner always comes out to say hi. A great place for a large party too. They have large rooms that can be shut off to the rest of the restaurant. Or you can sit at a table for 2 in front of one of the fireplaces. I would highly recommend this restaurant to locals or visitors from out of town. Hands down one of the best places to eat in Nashville!
Amazingly lousy.... – $38.50 for some decent crab legs, and that is it. The rest of the food is mediocre, not very many choices, and ingredients are not fresh. The crab legs were good, but I could have had a really gourmet dinner elsewhere for less money. Do it once in your life anyway, so that you can complain like me!
Stay away - all the hype is a lie. Visit yourself before you actually eat there. You'll see – I can't believe they even call this a seafood feast! The "hostess" was a bored teenager reading a magazine. I've seen better buffets at a chinese restaurant. Prime rib was overdone and swimming in a vat of water, lobster was so chewy it was not edible, the service was about as good as Subway and even after I commented on the $12.00 lobster I ordered was very tough, all the server said was "i'll pass that along". What? She didn't even offer to make it right, make it over, nothing... just like "tough luck".. I will NEVER EVER be back and I'm sorry I went in the first place. I could have spent the $100.00 on something really nice. As far as other people saying they were seated right away.... that's because there is NO ONE EATING THERE! It might have been great once, but obviously it is not run by anyone who knows how to cook.
