The reason my husband and I chose the The Forge Inn was because of Jason Gelber. I can't imagine working with anyone else. Jason was so helpful and flexible during our wedding planning process, we looked forward to meeting with him each time. He's fun, and makes it a blast to plan a reception. The food was excellent, and the value for the price was great! The Atrium Room was awesome, and all our guests were WOW'D when they saw it all set up. Also, the Maitre'D Kat, was extremely helpful and coordinated our whole night with the vendors. Our reception was perfect!!!! We had passed the Forge many times without ever going inside. We are so happy we did, and recommend this Venue to everyone!!
As the Mother of the Bride I must take the time to rate the services of The Forge. My daughter and son in-law got married there last weekend, and had the time of their lives.
When we first went to the Forge we were not aware of the beautiful grounds they had in the back, as its tough to see from the highway. We met Jason and he explained to us how the ceremony would look, and even recommended having the ceremony face the lake rather than the gazeebo. With the fountain on it was a great backdrop, so we decided to skip the traditional church service for the beauty of The Forge.
Then Jason told us about the Wedding Specials that The Forge was offering that would save us a ton of Money, and I knew that this was the location I wanted for my Daughter. He even offered a signature drink that my daughter loved being displayed at the Bar.
The food was amazing especially the Eggplant Rollatini at Cocktail Hour all the way up to the Chicken Francaise as my main course. The guests are still talking about the size of the Roasted Red Bliss Potatoes, in which Jason promised me he would give me the Chef's Recipe.
At the end of the night the staff even took all the items out to my daughters car for her. I highly recommend anyone looking for amazing service and food to go see Jason at The Forge. The package that they offer is unbeatable!
Before I begin I must admit that before I booked my wedding at this location I looked at all the caterers in the surrounding area looking for the best price and atmosphere. At least thats what I THOUGHT I was looking for until I met Jason, who was very friendly and funny and made the booking experience much easier for me to understand. He walked me through the menus, showed me the room i'd stay in, and introduced me to his Maitre'D who would be running my party.
We were very impressed with the way I was taken care of prior to the big event and was guaranteed an amazing night for me and my guests (which is exactly what every soon-to-be bride wants to hear).
The Maitre'D, Juan, was fantastic just as Jason promised he would be. He took charge and made sure the program was followed as much as possible, checked with me and my party planner often to make sure everything was to my satisfaction. The lighting in the room, the temperature, the timing on the courses, everything ran very smoothly and we were very very impressed.
The cocktail hour was magnificent! I was a little worried at first because we were fast approaching time to open the doors and invite the guests in. Our Maitre'D gave me the option to give my guests some more time to arrive and put the program on hold, and assured me there would be plenty of time for dancing, speeches, etc. Needless to say, I was very comfortable knowing everything was being taken care of.
We received a 1st course a small plate of penne vodka then soon after the 2nd course which was a small caesars salad, both perfect portions to prepare for our main course.
Before the dinner was rolled out the Maitre'D asked whether or not I was ready for the entrees. I requested if we could do one or two quick dance sets before the main course and Juan held the food for me and wheeled it out with his staff and Jason. It was beautiful, the food was delicious, the staff was incredible, and I could not have asked for a better day!
When I heard that my company was having a 2 day training seminar at The Forge Inn located in Woodbridge, I was a little skeptical because I was under the impression it was a Wedding Hall.
However I was pleasantly surprised as they are more than capable of hosting Corporate Events. From The Continental Breakfast, to the size of the Meeting Room everything was top notch. Usually in hotels you sit in a Conference Room which is very initmidating and cold. At The Forge there was a chandelier, and a view of the outside. It really was very inviting and made the meeting more relaxed.
I have attended similiar meetings in Hotels, and the lunch was always in the same room. Its nice to strech your legs and have a lunch in another room like we did in the Atrium. The food was unbelievable as the selection of salads and hot entrees was terrific.
When the meeting was over we were asked by our facilitator to fill out comment cards asking if we would come back, how was the food,etc....I answered yes to everything and then took a sales pamphlet home as I am looking for a place to hold my daughters Sweet 16 in 2014!
I hope my job continues to have their meetings at The Forge, as it was a corporate success in a social environment. Good Job to the Chef and Staff at The Forge!
I recently had my Wedding had at The Forge Inn. From the moment I met Jimmy I knew this was the right location to host my special day. He went out of his way to ensure that every detail from the ceremony to the reception went as smoothly as can be.
Planning a wedding can be very stressful, however Jimmy took all that stress away from me, and he did so with a smile and making me laugh along the way.
Our ceremony was beautiful, and the cocktail reception is still being talked about by our guests. The Hawaiian Chicken and Calamari were awesome! Kudos to the Chef!
We had our reception in the Atrium and it was done beautifully. My pictures came back and looked awesome! I will have memories to last me for a lifetime!
I recommend this venue to anyone, and the best part about it was how accomodating they were with me. Jimmy worked with me to change the menu to certain foods that my husbands family requested.
I will have the Forge host all my events in the future as they are very affordable for all occasions! Thanks again to the staff at The Forge for a memorable night!
From the very moment I went to see the venue I knew that I was going to have a great staff working behind me at The Forge! Dusan was the BEST! Anything that I asked for, he provided. The cost of the venue was out of the world for everything that we got!!! I'm very pleased with The Forge and the whole over-all professionalism in regards to my wedding. The wedding was A+
My husband and I thoroughly enjoy ourselves at our wedding and reception. We used the chapel for the ceremony which was beautiful without extra decorating from us.
We had to make a few changes to our original contract and they were able to accommodate this change which worked out for both sides. The food was excellent! Our guests complimented us all night on the amount of food they received and about how classy everything was.
The price for our package was superb. It was very economical and we would highly recommend it to anyone getting married in the future.
We had our ceremony and reception at The Forge and from the moment my husband and I walked into this venue, we were treated so kindly. I felt like I have known them my entire life. They made me feel so comfortable and even though I thought we were bothering them with the millions of questions it seemed that we were asking, they kept on answering with smiles on their faces and even twice they called my husband and myself to see if we needed anything else.
The food was amazing! The professionalism they showed to both myself and my husband far outweighed my expectations. I honestly cannot say enough positives about this place.
The Forge was great! The place is beautiful. Its perfectly organized. The price was fantastic...it included the cake, open bar and the hotel suite in the package price. We all had such a great time and loved the bartenders that worked our wedding.
We also had our ceremony in the back of the place and they had an outdoor cocktail hour.
If your on a budget, Book with the Forge. It will be worth it. Your dollar goes a long way with them.
