    Best Venue Ever

    If I could give Amarante's 100 stars I would. Our day was absolutely PERFECT in every way. More impressive is the communication, compassion, and flexibility leading up to the big day. My husband and I got engaged in March of 2020 -the very beginning of the Covid pandemic and the same weekend the state essentially shut down. Our entire wedding was planned via Zoom and email. Dawn was outstanding. She returned every email and phone call (and there were a lot -I was constantly asking questions) within hours. Her patience as we navigated how to host our wedding amid a pandemic was nothing short of saintly. We had to constantly shift gears -inside, outside, back inside. Number changes. Spacing and regulation shifts. We need a tent. No, actually cancel the tent we can be inside...the rollercoaster was endless. Nevertheless, our day was perfect in every way. I felt like a queen -waited on hand and foot. Our maitre de, Darlene, was constantly checking in on not only us but also our parents and my grandmother as well, asking what we needed or wanted. Advil? A drink? A plate of apps to tide us over while we did photos by the water? A to-go box for a guest who couldn't eat her whole dinner? Amarante's nailed it. Not only is the facility beautiful (we also had an amazing sunset overlooking the water which made for stunning photographs) but we literally didn't have to lift a finger. Everything was done for us and done better than I could have imagined. Thank you doesn't seem like enough. It was the best day of my life.

    Perfect Pandemic Wedding

    I could not have asked for a better venue to have my wedding at during a pandemic than Amarante’s Sea Cliff. Throughout the planning process I must have asked a thousand questions as the state kept changing regulations, but every time I would receive a response that put me at ease. The staff is so flexible and understanding and truly have your best interest in mind. The Maitre D set up all of my decorations perfectly, it was as if I did it myself, they truly saw my vision. The food was amazing and we got the most perfect fall night to entertain our friends and family! I highly recommend this hidden gem in New Haven for any event you may need to plan.
