My husband and I got married at The View this past weekend and the entire experience was absolutely wonderful. From our first meeting with Howard Vaz, he assured us that he would make the (crazy) wedding planning experience as relaxed and stress-free as possible- he was right! Howard was ALWAYS available for us and handled all of the details from the big tasks down to the little stuff. We had both our ceremony and reception at The View. The outdoor ceremony was so romantic and beautiful- one of the reasons I HAD to get married there was due to the breathtaking views of the water. The outside was set up with white chairs facing a wedding alter and the river- my guests still will not stop telling us how gorgeous the scenery was. Howard had graciously met with my whole family and wedding party the evening prior to ensure the ceremony was flawless and everybody knew the processional and order of the ceremony (phew!) And the reception was just as fabulous. The staff at the View were FANTASTIC- my hubby and I don't drink and the bartender Mary dug up some energy drinks for us out of her own personal stash! How sweet?! Our waitress Theresa was also wonderful and was always asking us what we needed and if she could get us anything. And Howard spent the entire reception making sure we were taken care of. He was there the entire time!!! He helped us all line up for intro's, and helped organize the first dances and cake cutting.
You know how when a big event ends you often walk away thinking it had gone much different than you thought it was? For over a year I had envisioned my wedding to be the perfect evening, and in the end, it was even BETTER than I had dreamed it would be.
I just recently had a wedding at The View on 7/11/15 and it was absolutely AMAZING! Ralph made our special day perfect and was so attentive and helpful throughout the whole planning process and throughout the actual day of the wedding. There is only 1 wedding at the venue at a time and you are the total spotlight. My guests RAVED about the food and the view of the Hudson River! They also keep complimenting me on how amazing the service was and how attentive all the staff was to them. Cocktail hour is spectacular, the food is plentiful and they have such a wide variety to keep everyone happy! My mother even ripped the back of her dress and the staff helped her sew it up so that no one could even notice.
My fiancé and I actually chose this venue because we went to a wedding there and we were just regular people, no one special to the couple and we were treated like royalty and had the best time. We know our guests felt the same way at our wedding. People are STILL talking about our wedding and how fabulous it was. The View on the Hudson is the PERFECT place for the PERFECT wedding!
I recently had my daughter's wedding at The View on The Hudson on July 11, 2015. From the moment my quests arrived and throughout the entire evening everyone commented about the attention to details and the quality of service here. The food was OUTSTANDING and you can't go wrong with either Maitre D. Both Ralph and Howard are amazing and will do everything they can to make your event the best. Yes the actual View is spectacular.... but it is the people here that give the place that WOW factor. Each server was professional and seemed to really care about delivering a quality experience. Thank you to all of you at The View on The Hudson!
I would highly recommend this place to everyone! I can't say enough about the venue and Howard. We fell in love when we first saw it and ended up booking it for our wedding. I'm so happy we did. Howard was such a pleasure to work with. Our wedding was absolutely amazing. Weddings are stressful and yet Howard made it so easy and stress free. Everyone kept commenting on how they loved the food and the service. I would recommend this place for any special occasion!!! I can't thank them enough for making our day so special!
I had my baby shower at the view on the Hudson November 16,2014 and I have to say I\'ve never in my life been to a place like this. From the service to the food! The View on The Hudson is definitely a 5 staring catering hall. I dealt with Howard, who was amazing and understanding to all my needs. The owner, along with Howard, was there the whole time to make sure everything was to our liking. The whole team was professional and on top of things. We are definitely going to hold other events at the view on the Hudson. Once again I\'d like to thank Howard and the rest of the team and ofcourse the chief, David, for the amazing food! Thank you thank you thank you!
We were blown away by our experience with The View on the Hudson. I have to admit that at first I was a little intimidated by Ralph's get-it-done attitude, but he impressed me most of all. Ralph is so detail-oriented that even the most type B bride could pull of an incredible event. Since I'm detail-oriented myself I immediately respected that about him and felt confident that he would help our wedding go smoothly and as close to schedule as possible. He also helped us choose an amazing food and beverage package that our guests raved about. Some people said it was the best food they've ever had at the wedding...and there was so much of it! It was also a bonus to give our guests the option of choosing their dinner the day of the wedding instead of picking meat or veggie months in advance. The venue was gorgeous and we loved that we had the place to ourselves instead of sharing a hall with one or two other events at a time. Plus, the bridal suite upstairs was adorable and the large bathroom was a godsend for a big bridal party. At the end of the day, we had an amazing wedding at The View on the Hudson and are so happy we chose to have our wedding there. Highly recommended for anyone who needs a larger venue space without losing any of the local charm.
We had our wedding at The View on the Hudson and everything was amazing. The staff is very professional and great to work with, they had everything setup as planned. The food was great, everyone who attended praised the selections. The location on the river and venue makes for the most beautiful place to hold any event.
Thank You Howard!!! What can i say; the place is fantastic, the staff is superb, food and drink delicious, my guests never wanted for anything. Howard ran the operation smoothly from beginning to end, attending to me and my bride on our special day with the utmost care and professionalism. If your looking for all of the above and tired of looking at places with no windows, just some glorified giant hallway, then this is the place for you its the closest venue near NYC that has such spectacular views and you will not be disappointed with the food, drink, staff, anything. These guys know what stellar service is :)
Our wedding was FANTABULOUS!!!! The venue was beautiful. The view of the Hudson River, mountains and blue skies were absolutely gorgeous for our fall themed wedding. It was the perfect day for an outside ceremony. Howard Vaz is the best! His guidance, hospitality, and professionalism made it even more perfect. From day one, he made himself readily available for any questions or concerns. From ceremony to reception, Howard kept his staff on point. Myself and the bridal party arrived later than expected but Howard kept the flow smooth and seamless. We didn't miss a beat. He accommodated us in every way. He worked every corner to make sure our guests had food and drinks. He made sure me and my husband had quiet time in the bridal suite while enjoying the tasty hors d‘oeuvres and assortments of fruits and veggies. We got to bask in the moment for a moment. Our guests were extremely satisfied with the service, delicious food and 5-hour open bar with premium liquor ;-). The staff was awesome!! We're all still re-living the day. If you're looking for a venue that can eliminate the stress and provide half of your planning by offering space, food, drinks, cake, scenery, exceptional service, and professionalism, for a reasonable cost, then look no further. The View On The Hudson is your place!! As Howard would say, “You worry about the small stuff, we got everything else covered”. Thanks Howard. Yeh mon! ;-)

The View On The Hudson was the greatest wedding venue from start to finish. Howard was professional and work so hard to make our day perfect. He catered not only to myself and the groom but also our parents and the whole bridal party. He worked with us during the months prior to our wedding to create the perfect day that fit everything we wanted, from the ceremony, presentation, food, music and the entire flow of the night. He made sure me and the groom ate and even brought food up to the bridal suite for me to eat while bustling my dress before the reception. The ceremony was beautiful outside and perfect for photos. I cannot thank Howard enough for all he did the months leading up to and the day of our wedding. It was a perfect day.
Our wedding was here on June 22, 2014. We got an amazing deal for a Sunday wedding. Howard made our day extremely special. From day one, he was extremely accommodating. He kept telling us, you...worry about the small stuff...and leave the hard stuff to us. We did exact that!! The view from the cocktail area, the ballroom and ceremony area were exquisite. If your looking for a venue that gives it's all, amazing food, and right on the water....this is your place!! Howard made sure we were having a great time, and he also made sure we made time to eat ourselves. God knows, bride and grooms never eat...but luckily we got to. Haha. Our family was taken care of as well. Everything went amazing, and more!!
We had a great wedding at the view on the Hudson. By that I have not one single complaint about this venue. We worked with Ralph and he made sure that our wedding was everything that we wanted and more. We had our ceremony at The View on the Hudson. We had it outside and the backdrop was nothing less than magical. Ralph made sure that it ran perfectly and seamlessly. Move ahead to the cocktail hour and the food was amazing they have numerous stations to chose from, and in their standard package you pick four. The food was plentiful and delicious. The drinks were flowing getting everyone primed up for the party. Ralph and his staff were compleat professionals through out the night. The food was amazing, did not hear one single complaint, but received many comments on how good the food was. Ralph was very easy to deal with and made sure that every request that we had was met and that there very no snafus though out the night. He was extremely flexible with us the week of the wedding as far as people canceling on us and then people coming last minute that changed their mind. He is a professional and I would highly recommend requesting him as your matre de. Nothing and I mean nothing went wrong at our wedding, and it was the day that my wife had been dreaming about her whole life, and that had a lot to do with Ralph and his staff.
Ralph was great and the view speaks for itself! Beautiful location! Excellent food! ?
The View on the Hudson was a terrific venue to get married. Being an event planner myself, I was prepared to have to do all of the work for the wedding, but the true professionalism and experience that the staff at the View has truly made my job SO much easier! The food was spectacular, the view of the Hudson river/ bridge was breathtaking, (even in the rain!) and the staff was a pleasure to work with! I would recommend this venue to anyone!
Everything about The View exceeded my expectations. We worked with Howard for well over a year planning our wedding. I made many calls to him throughout asking random questions as they came to me, stopped in to see what our centerpiece would look like on the table and he was helpful and gave advice every step of the way. He worked with us very closely and the food and drinks that we wanted and was reassuring about the entire process. It was very clear that he had been doing this work for a while and knows that he is doing! I had a last minute small seating arrangement change, but it didn't seem to bother Howard. He went through the set up without a hitch. We arrived to the venue earlier for pictures and for me to get dressed and when I got there he brought us champagne and food! For that matter, there was not a time when I didn't have a fresh drink at my table or food at my hands. Howard made a point that my husband and I eat - and we did! I would definitely work with Howard and The View again!
We loved everything about The View! We worked with Ralph, and he was expectional throughout the entire planning process! Ralph made sure everything was exactly how we wanted it to be, and on the day of our wedding, he made sure we were pleased with everything. He made sure we ate, and had whatever we needed throughout the night. He even bussled my dress for me!!
