The Palace is beautiful from the moment you drive up to the venue. We knew instantly that we wanted to have our wedding at The Palace and are very excited for our wedding day! The staff is very attentive and responds quickly to any questions. They also provide a planner who will help with any questions you may have and also helps you set up all the specifics of the wedding day! I cannot wait for our wedding in March so I can write another review about how fabulous this venue is!
My husband Charlie and I got married at the palace on November 8th, 2015. It was definitely the wedding of the year!!! Michelle my event planner was amazing!!! She answered all of my questions from beginning to end. David was our maitre'd he was absolutely fabulous loved him!!! He was on point with everything including my vision of my hanging crystal cake and Stephanny and Gina who were my bridal attendants were incredible!! I had a vision of my entire night and they did everything to make it happen perfectly!!!! My guests couldn;t stop raving about the food, service, the ambiance, all my incredible ideas I put into effect. It really was magical and I loved every minute of it!!
Thank you to Michelle, David, Stephanny, Gina and everyone at the Palace for making it perfect for us!!!!
I will definitely be back I work at a bridal boutique and will be recommending The Palace to all my brides!!!
From the moment we started inquiring about The Palace, everyone we dealt with was super friendly and accommodating. This made the already stressful wedding process so much easier to deal with. We visited a few other venues in the Central Jersey location, but we would always come back to The Palace. When we would compare the venues and what they offered, there was never any question of who we should and wanted to book with. Our event planners, Christie and Alex were awesome. From our meetings to follow-up questions we had or clarification we needed, they always answered us promptly and were so friendly in the process. Our Maitre D and Bridal Attendant, Richard and Jillian respectively, were amazing. From our first meeting, they were true professionals, efficient, and so nice and fun to deal with. This carried out to our big day. Jillian and Richard were always checking up on us and making sure we and everything was okay. They allowed us to just enjoy our day and be in the moment instead of having to worry about the details of the day!
All of our vendors had already done weddings at The Palace and our florist stated that it was the most organized venue that it ever dealt with. The Palace is truly outstanding from it's gorgeous venue, superb staff, delectable food, and amazing service. We were always impressed with The Palace but nothing tops having our own wedding there. They truly treated us like royalty.
My husband and I were extremely happy and pleased with how everything was for our wedding reception in mid October 2015. My expectations were way beyond surpassed and I couldn't be happier with how wonderful the food and schedule and everything went! Our Maitre D, David, and Bridal Attendant, Jill, were also absolutely WONDERFUL! David really made sure everything ran smoothly and was there with my husband's *special request* delicious French fries made in olive oil! Jill really helped me stay calm and came to the rescue when my bussle and strap kept breaking on my dress! Our event planner, Michelle, was great in helping us to get to this spectacular event, answering any and every email and phone call my mom and I had, and really trying to accommodate all our requests. I really can't say enough how wonderful and beautiful everything was, thank you to the Palace for your hard work in making sure our wedding was everything and more than we could have ever wanted! I know it can be a bit pricey, especially if you're on a budget, but they are worth every penny and I would definitely recommend the Palace for a wedding!
The Palace was above and beyond anything I could have imagined for our wedding. We had Michelle as our planner (wonderful!), Josh as our maitre d' (amazing!), and Latonja as our bridal attendant (fantastic!). Everyone was so professional and on top of their game that our night was absolutely wonderful. Thank you to all of the staff who did such an amazing job--you made our wedding even more special!
Everything ran according to plan, there was no stress (unusual, since I'm admittedly very type-A), and our guests are still raving about what they're calling "the best wedding ever'! We couldn't agree more--this was the best wedding ever. The food was some of the best we've ever had--we wish we could go back for dinner one night--and our wedding cake (devils food with cannoli cream filling) was delicious and everyone loved it. I can't recommend the Palace highly enough to prospective brides. I work in event management and thought all of the 5 star reviews were too good to be true, but this is honestly the best venue I've ever worked with. I wish we could get married again just to have another reception at the Palace!
My husband and I got married on September 26, 2015. We have previously attended a wedding here 2 years prior. I knew as soon as we went to that wedding, this is where I would want to have ours. Still to this day, family and friends talk about how amazing the reception was. The venue itself is absolutely beautiful. The food, I can't even begin to talk about. Unfortunately, my husband and I did not eat that much but from our previous experience and what our guest kept talking about, the food was incredible. My parents who are big foodies were overly impressed by the food. I still can taste the gnocchi. YUM! If you're looking for a venue that caters to all your needs and you want to have the most beautiful wedding, 100% book The Palace. Our DJ recommended to request Josh for a maitre d'. I personally can't thank Josh enough. He made everything perfect for us. He made sure we ate some food instead of take pictures all night long. He kept making sure we had enough to eat or drink. He showed us around to our Venetian hour, which we unfortunately didn't get to take part in. He made sure everything we wanted and needed was fulfilled. My bridal attendant Stephanie was awesome too. She literally ran up and down the steps all night to get anything I needed that my mom had with her. She helped me use the restrooms multiple times, always asking if I wanted another drink. She was by my side at all times, making me not worry about one thing. Everything to us was perfect!! The whole planning experience for me was a piece of cake as well thanks to Cristina. She was on top of everything and even reminded me of things to do months before as well as weeks before the wedding. We truly can't thank the staff enough for making our wedding night so unforgettable and perfect. We just said it today in the car, we wish we could re-do our wedding all over again.
I truly don’t have words to express how AMAZING this venue is. From the beautiful facilities and grounds to the unbeatably delicious gourmet food to the supremely professional staff, having my wedding here was an absolute dream.
Starting with the price per head, this venue is actually extremely reasonable given everything that is included - a full open bar, all food for cocktail hour and a sit-down dinner, your beautiful designer wedding cake, a wedding coordinator, maitre D, bridal attendant, and professional wait staff all night!
As soon as we booked, Alex, our event coordinator, reached out to us and helped us organize all the big details from setting the menu to choosing table linens. She was also always available by email and prompt in her replies to my every minute question.
The food is exceptional. It is unbelievable how many options they put out for cocktail hour (we had 16 small passed hors d'oeuvres, fruit, cheese, crepes, a whole suckling pig, a caribbean themed station, a sushi station... it goes on and on). The first course and main course at dinner were so delicious, with prime cuts of meat and fish with delicious sides and tasty seasonings. And then, as if our 4-tier cake wasn't enough, there was a HUGE dessert buffet (literally filled an entire room) with every single type of dessert you could ever imagine. The food was unbeatable!
And let me talk about my maitre D and bridal attendants: Richard, Latonja, and Stefany were all amazing, professional, helpful, organized, on top of everything! If my ankle was hurting from my shoes, a bandaid would appear immediately. If I needed my lipstick, Latonja would have it in hand. When my husband left something in the car, it was retrieved instantly. Everything happened like clockwork, and these amazing individuals made it possible for me to enjoy every moment of my big day!
All in all, this venue is beyond amazing!!
The Palace truly made my wedding a dream come true. I have never felt so taken care of by a business before and every single person that I was in contact with was out of this world amazing! Every detail was taken care of and I never had to worry about a thing. I was treated like a queen every step of the way! I highly recommend booking The Palace at your venue for your wedding. The food was phenomenal and I am still hearing about how great my wedding was and it has been over a month. Book The Palace! You will not be sorry!!!!
First off, let me just recognize Joshua and Letonja for the amazing job they did on our wedding day! Everything moved along so smoothly, at such a great pace, that we've had people tell us it was the best wedding they'd ever been too! Our coordinator Cristina was awesome in getting us set up with lighting, food, beverages, and all the other nitty gritty details that I would have completely overlooked. Finally, my groom and I actually were able to EAT THE FOOD! YES! They knew at what points to break for us to actually enjoy the party we'd planned. Perfect location, decor, the FOOD WAS AMAZING. (The chef is a member of the Chaîne des Rôtisseurs!) Would definitely book again for any other massive party we plan to have!
I cannot say enough good things about the Palace! Everyone was absolutely amazing throughout the entire process and truly went above and beyond. The venue itself is beautiful and the food is INCREDIBLE. Almost every person I talked to at my wedding said something about how delicious the food was and how much there was. The Palace really goes above and beyond with quality of both service and product. Josh, our Maitre D, is incredible. He went through a detailed schedule for the day of the wedding at our final meeting three days before. He made sure my husband and I were comfortable with the timing and that we knew how and when everything would happen on our wedding day. He wore many hats for our wedding: bartender, bridal party herder, bouncer, bag-holder, and many more. He did his job well because if there were any problems I still don’t know about them! The whole day came together seamlessly and as far as my husband and I know everything was executed perfectly. He literally could not have been more attentive or accommodating and played a huge role in the perfect wedding that my husband and I had; we couldn’t be more grateful.
Maya, my bridal attendant, is the most amazing attendant that there could ever be on this planet. She knew what I needed or wanted even before I knew myself! My wedding day was so low stress because she just anticipated everything before it even happened. She is so sweet and helpful and I could not be more thankful that I had her right behind me for most of my day (mostly without me even realizing!), and she even helped me get dressed. For every single picture she was there fluffing my dress and smoothing my train while also holding my drink or bouquet and making sure the bridal party was in the right place. I am still in awe and don’t understand how she had enough hands to do everything she was doing simultaneously. She made it so I didn’t have to think about anything and could just enjoy the day with my husband and for that
I am so so happy we chose The Palace as our reception! From the moment we walked in there for the first time til the moment we were married was just simply amazing. I can't even describe how helpful and amazing the staff and service was. First and foremost our wedding planner Alex was truly on top of it all when it came to organizing our wedding. She answered every email and met with us to review everything. She even helped design our wedding cake which was just exactly what we wanted! She has a very true talent and we couldn't thank her enough! David our Matre D - words can't even describe how awesome he was that day! He went above and beyond our expectations. He made sure everything was in tack and did not let anything go unnoticed. He really was just so pleasant and a pleasure to work with. Stephanie was my bridal assistant - she was so helpful in helping me with my dress and veil, everything! The Palace is truly a place for a fairy tale wedding. The food was amazing - our guests couldn't stop raving about how the food was and how much food there was!!! The Palace gets more then 10 stars on our list!! =)
My husband Ron and I got married at The Palace a month ago today. We had the most amazing wedding and it is all thanks to their amazing team and staff. From the minute we walked into The Palace we knew we wanted to have our wedding there. Melanie, Michelle, Richard, Latonja and the amazing wait staff made our night absolutely magical. Michelle put up with my non-stop emails and phone calls filled with day of questions. Richard walked us through our entire event and didn't miss a beat. Latonja, was my bridal attendant for the night and treated me like a princess. I cant thank The Palace enough for going above and beyond for our day. We have had so many compliments on the food, the service, the venue etc. It was absolutely worth every penny. Thank you The Palace at Somerset Park for making our wedding day the best day of our lives. We recommend them to anyone who wants a stress free wedding day with amazing food and even better service.
Our June wedding at the Palace was one word, AMAZING. The Palace was actually the first and only place we looked at for our reception venue and I still believe I would have been wasting my time looking anywhere else. The Palace had everything we wanted and we received so much for our money. We originally met with Jose Russa who walked us through the packages and was a pleasure to work with. Alex, our coordinator was so awesome and quick to respond to any email/phone call we sent. She was so helpful in getting all of the little details together and she made any request we had possible. Night of our wedding was completely flawless. Our Maitre D David made sure everything ran on time and in a smooth manner. Our guests were floored at the level of attentiveness and service everyone at the Palace exhibited. My bridal attendant Latonya was also awesome in making sure my husband and I had everything we needed and that we were always doing OK. We have received nothing but rave reviews about the venue, the service and especially the food. Every piece of food we tried was just incredible, the cocktail hour was amazing and the dinners are still being raved about by our guests. If you are looking for incredible level of service, professionalism and attention to detail, the Palace is the place!!
If you want a top notch wedding with great food and amazing service I suggest having it at the palace! Wow! We are so pleased with everything!
When we first looked at the reviews and photos here at Wedding Wire, we knew this is the place we are having our wedding. We held the ceremony and reception here. The palace is huge; it has 2 ballroom West and East. We had 125 guests and our party was held at the West ballroom (smaller ballroom of two). Even though it’s a smaller ballroom, it was still huge and guest loved the space.
The Palace had everything and worth it.
Customer Service: These guys are great and we give them a lot of praise for what they did. Christie was our sales manager, she was wonderful. Alex was our event planner, and she made sure we had everything in place. We worked with Alex a lot prior to the big day. We sent her so many emails and she was very responsive and honest. She provided us great input on what kind of flowers will work during the wedding. To our Maitre’d Josh and bridal attendant Stephany, these two was with us the whole entire day of the wedding. They never left our side, they made sure we are taken good care of, they made sure we ate, they made sure we drank, and made sure we felt home and comfortable. We are VERY THANKFUL we had these two, and if we had to pick out a Maitre’d and Bridal attendant, we’ll choose these two.
Food: To the chefs and cooks at the Palace, you guys cooked us an amazing food and THANK YOU for allowing us to bring some goodie bags! Everything you guys did at the cocktail hour was fantastic, the baja fish taco and the succulent pig was a hit. We were lucky enough to try the entire main course: Crab Cake, Gnocchi, Chicken Breast, Sirloin Steak, and Grouper were tasty. We would come back again just for the crab cake and macadamia nut grouper. For the cake and dessert, the cake looked AMAZING and the rest of the pastries were very good. Thank you for the pastry chef who made the cake look like the picture we sent you and making sure the flowers looked AMAZING rather than a cake with a flower toupee on top of it.
THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!!!
I’m not sure I can find enough words to say how fabulous The Palace is, but I’m going to try.
We had our wedding there on May 16, 2015. It was nothing short of perfection. We didn’t have one single problem with the entire process. We booked with Melanie, who was fabulous. After booking, our planner, Alexandra, was incredible. She responded to Emails extremely quickly with the highest professionalism and knew every detail and answer for every question I asked. They were extremely flexible in filling requests we had to switch out certain menu items- we got exactly what we wanted. And the food was fantastic. That is an understatement. The cocktail hour was the best cocktail hour I ever had at a wedding. The chef, Justin, did whatever he could to make sure everyone had the best meal ever.
On the day of the wedding, our Maître D, Richard was a dream. I could go on and on forever about him, but I’ll just simply say that he did his job above and beyond my expectations. He even knew the up to date weather so he knew exactly when we could go outside without rain! Our bridal attendant was also perfection. I didn't want for anything that night!
We also got the fireworks package. Also worth every penny. We heard several times from several different guests that they were better than the Fourth of July. It’s a memory we’ll have forever.
Yes, the Palace is pricey, but it is worth every penny if you can swing it. You won’t be disappointed. I wish we could get married every month just to do this all over again.
