I had my wedding in Orion place about a month ago. The place was butiful,the food was great, and the service was above and beyond. I cannot believe the harshness these people are writing. If it was possible I would extend the party for another 2 nights. All I could say is the internet lies. Thank you Tsila and Eugene for making my wedding dreams a reality p.
had an amzing experience as a guest at a wedding, booked my wedding here for august so excited!!
We fell into Orion Palace as a default because our original venue flooded during Hurricane Sandy...however, it was a blesing in disguise. The venue was not only absolutely breathtaking in appearance, clean and elegant, but the owners, staff, food and overall experience was magnificent. The owners, Eugene and Tsilya were very accomodating and worked with us to make our wedding dreams a reality. We had 3 weeks to plan our wedding at the Orion, and they were calm and responsive throughout. They went above and beyond anything we expected, and gave us an unforgettable day. The guests were amazed with the attention to details, the decor, cleanliness. The food was superb, wait staff was attentive and prompt. I would recommend Orion to any couple looking for a great experience and an unforgettable day. Thank you Orion for making our dreams a reality! Anya & Dima 12/2/12
Coming from a past employee and current frequent customer, I would like to write a review to explain the poor reviews writen in the past. The simplest way to explain would be YOU GET WHAT YOU PAY FOR!!!!!! for some reason people have a hard time understanding that. when people try to negotiat an cut corners to save money they end up with bad service and/or poor food, simply because that is the only thing they want to/can pay for. so all I am trying to say is don't pay atention to those bad reviews, writen by people who dont know what they are talking about. when i had my wedding there in november, i payed top dollar and got everything the best. i come to Eugene and Tsila, the managers, for almost all my events and i always come out very happy.
The most amazing place I ever had a party in.
I had a wedding at orian palace and it was the most I can ask for
I am a guest attending a wedding TODAY. I just got off the phone with a man who answered he phone by saying "Orion" and nothing else. After I said hello, and began speaking he yelled "Hold on, hold on, hold on" and put the phone down for over 3 minutes. When he finally came back on he line, I asked him about parking at his location. His response was "We have valet parking." When I indicated that the bride's mother had not paid for valet parking, he said "Then there is no valet parking." So I asked if I could pay for it myself and he said "No, there is no parking." I told him I have handicapped tags and cannot walk long distances, and asked him what parking is around. He said "We have valet parking." And when I reminded him the wedding hadn't paid for valet, he said "There is no valet parking." HUH?!?!
To add insult to injury, he could not tell me what parking was near-by. Who owns a business and doesn't know what s around them to accommodate their guests?
I also asked about a place to change, since I would prefer not to drive over an hour in a formal gown. He said "You can use the bathroom." I asked if there was a room other than the bathroom, and he said "Look, lady, I am very, very busy. I gave you answers." I was SHOCKED at how he treated me! So I said, "I would think that the comfort of your guests is important to you, but I guess I was wrong!"
I don't think I would EVER book anything at this establishment. Any place that treats a guest tie way isn't worth a penny!
I was guest at the wedding on 07/10/11.
The decoration everywhere is terrific!
Food is plentiful abd very tasty!!!
One huge drawback-----------------------MC- which is supposed to be the heart of the wedding, basically as if there were no such person at this wedding- it was neglected and disorganized!!!!!
Couple of major samples-
cutting of the cake-
a touchy ceremony wher all the guests should be watching and cheering was messed up-they setup dezert tables and 95% of people were in the line for deserts while the bride was feeding the groom.......
whatever activities(games) were played the guests were not involved
--People in Chuppa procedure weren't announced
otherwise- it was wonderful as the the weddings are
i had my wedding at orion palace on march 19 2011, and the only thing i regret is that the party ended at 4 am and we didnt stay any longer. the food was remarkable, the flowers (all made by the venue on the day of wedding) were astonishing, and the owner of the venue (Eugene) personally attended to our wants. when we first came to him about a year before the wedding, he told us to just book the day and nothing else, because he had no time to plan the party then. he told us to come to him a month prier to the party to plan. when we met 11 months later we came into his office and he had everything laid out for us. the best thing about this place is that they do everything (from fresh flowers to wonderful food). when my husband and i met before the wedding with Eugene, it was the easiest thing i ever did, we came and had every thing planed within about an hour. i can honestly say that we came like a guest to our own wedding.
if you want to have a wonderful wedding that will be remembered for many years to come, the best place to go is Orion Palace.
We had our wedding reception at Orion Palace 9/19/2009. We went with their top package. Nothing but excellent things to say. The food and alcohol was very good and plenty of it. Everyone told us they "never seen so much quantity and variety at any other wedding". The decorations were very tasteful. The seafood table was amazing. The sweet table set up was top of the line, breathtaking. The managment was very easy to communicate with and very flexible on payment options. The service was outstanding. Many catoring halls and restaurants provide similar services but Orion Palace does it with incredible attention to detail and keeps their promises. You will not be dissappointed by having your event at Orion Palace. They will meet and exceed your expectations.
This a very nice russian catering hall. Somewhat on the pricey side but very well worth it
Orion Palace was the best choice! It saved us so much time, since they provide decorations for the hall, invitations, flowers, food, drinks, music, wedding cake, host for the party... EVERYTHING! It was peaty much "a one stop shopping" and considering that we live in VA while the wedding was in Brooklyn, NY it was worth even more for us. Not only have they made our wedding planning easier, but they made paying for it easier too (no worrying about different deadlines and checks to write out! One deposit on the day of reservation and then one payment at the end of the night of the wedding). Everything was great! The halls looked beautiful, the flowers were fresh, the food was fantastic (although, I am taking a word form guests, I ended up trying cake only, which was VERY VERY GOOD (and I tend to be picky with cakes... and it was gorgeous...)), music played all night long, an so on and so forth...
Great package included flowers, band, reception and cocktail hour. Very professional attitude, very flexable. Great choice in wines, flowers, provided huge choice in invitations types. Highly recommended.
Orion Palace made our special day very unique and unforgettable! Everybody were very helpful and very professional! Cilya one of the owners, helped organize everything, and made sure that our party was great! Would definitely recommend Orion for weddings and other special occassions!
They try their hardest to work with you and your budget. This is one of the only catering halls that will allow you to have a gorgeous wedding on a very tight budget. They have the most amazing packages: you can get only food if you like and take care of everything on your own, or you can have a complete package which includes invitations, personalized matches and napkins, unlimited alcohol, bartenders during cocktail hour, complete decoration of all the rooms you will be using, personalized kippas for he Chuppah, band with 6 musicians and the person who will lead the whole wedding.
It is totally worth the money you spend.
