cannot thank Briza on the Bay enough for my cousins wedding this past August 2019. Every stage of the event process was so easy. Gerry the Director of Sales truly worked with our budget and although this was a small wedding, made us feel important and made all our requests happen. Hailey our event manager was so attentive and made herself available for all our needs like coming in on her day off for our wedding rehearsal. The Chef also worked with us on our special dietary requests and the brides wishes to incorporate edible flowers to one of the entrees and also put on a lovely dessert station. As someone whom has worked in the event industry the last ten years, I have to say that “Briza does it right!” They were a dream to work with. Gerry, Hailey & Chef we cannot thank you enough for Priscilla & Carlos’s Special Day!!! Warm Regards, Monica Tafur (Moni)Sent on 09/18/2019

The perfect Miami wedding venue!
Our experience with Briza on the Bay was fantastic. There were three things we wanted from our wedding venue: a location by the water, good food, and superior service. Briza delivered on all three fronts and more.Sent on 03/17/2019
The location on the marina is beautiful, and the venue space is gorgeous with floor to ceiling windows showing off the view of Biscayne Bay. The venue also includes a state-of-the-art sound and lighting system that saved us money on entertainment and made for an incredibly fun reception. Also, the partnership the venue has with the Marriott Biscayne Bay (where we had a room block) wound up being extremely convenient for our out-of-town guests.
We have not stopped receiving compliments on the food. Briza worked with us to create an entree that wasn't on the original menu we received (a Caribbean salmon dish that tasted amazing). We felt that the range of options for the cocktail hour and the quality of the dishes were both exceptional, and an incredible value for the price. The drinks were also delicious (Briza makes a great mojito!).
Finally, the service we received at Briza--from the initial walkthrough to the very end of the reception--was consistently outstanding. Jeannine is such a warm and friendly person and made us feel special from day one. She worked with us and our planners to get all the details right, from arranging our ever-changing floorplan just the way we wanted to bringing in the late-night bites that we requested from Islas Canarias. And Carlos, the banquet captain, and his service staff were professional, devoted, and friendly to every last guest. We've received so many compliments about the wait staff and bartenders for their attentiveness and attitudes. And our experience matched that of our guests - the team at Briza made us feel expertly cared for on our wedding day, anticipating our needs and always doing so with a smile.
We'll forever be grateful to Briza on the Bay for giving us the Miami wedding we dreamed of. We doubt there's a better wedding venue anywhere in Miami, and can't recommend Briza highly enough. Thank you Briza!

Amazing venue, staff, and food!
Having my wedding at Briza on the Bay was the best decision I could have made. After looking at Briza I did not have to look anywhere else. The venue is so versatile that they can really capture whatever vision you are looking for. The windows from the ceiling to the floor allow for a gorgeous view with great natural lighting. Our ceremony was inside, cocktail hour outside, and reception inside. They flipped the room during the cocktail hour so efficiently and beautifully. Everyone was amazed. We got to work with Jeannine to put together our wedding! Jeannine is so amazing! I don't have enough words to describe how great she truly is. She was kind and really wanted to ensure that we were happy with every decision we were making. She was always quick in responding and her calm demeanor allows you to stay calm. I cannot thank her enough for everything she did for us! Now the food...the food was fantastic! Everyone complimented us on how delicious the food was! The staff at Briza are extremely kind and attentive. They ensured that my husband and I as well as our guests were tended to throughout the reception. The bartender was amazing and quick! Everyone loved her! Overall my experience at Briza was the best experience and everything about Briza contributed to the amazing wedding I had that my guests can't stop talking about! Thank you Jeannine and Briza on the Bay for making my day special and exceeding my expectations!Sent on 03/23/2019
