The Crystal Plaza became a family venue to us. Max and his team welcomed us with open arms and made our wedding vision come to life. We got married this past June and our friends and family are still talking about the cocktail hour. Leslie the Bridal attendant makes you feel like a princess! Before you can even ask her what you need she already does it for you. She must have bustled my dress and retouched my lipstick so many times. The best advice she have my husband and I were to sit in our bridal suite and just have a moment to ourselves and Eat! Thank God we did! Max is an amazing manager! He really made this Wedding a dream come true for us. We can’t complain about one thing. Anything we were concerned with or questioned he was there to help 100%. And let’s not forget about Nella! She made our Italian confetti candy station look just like the one from Italy, and made the cheese and pasta station just like we wanted! She was an amazing asset to our party! Crystal Plaza we love you! Looking forward to future weddings and parties there!Sent on 08/07/2018

We had our wedding at the Crystal Plaza on 9/7/19. There aren’t enough stars to select to accurately assess this place. Ten stars - more like it!Sent on 09/16/2019
First off, this is not your average, run of the mill Wedding venue. You will see things here you have never seen before: 1930’sOyster shuckers, Shot laboratory, customizable ice artwork, world class sushi!!! There is a 100 year tradition in fine catering which permeates the walls in this place. Yet, it all feels so modern and contemporary. Opulent chandeliers paired with gilded ceilings next to modern furniture and wall sconces. Ornately manicured, secluded ceremony grounds transported us to an early 1900 manor garden. Somehow, it all works and provides a unique, exclusive experience for our guests. The food, menu, and presentation are by far the most interesting, unique, and exciting out there. With Max and Nella’s vision, we were able to customize an amazing menu. We dealt with Max since the beginning of our wedding planning. To call him hands - on does not do justice to the level of customer service he provides. He gave us his CELL PHONE number, and encouraged us to contact him anytime!! He was there for every minute of our event, and personally managed our party from start to finish. Our grooms attendants ( G and Jeff) were superb and made us feel like royalty up to the minute we left in our car!! The wait staff and bartenders provided exemplary service. This was def one of the best nights of our lives, and we can’t wait to visit the crystal plaza for future events! In addition, every person we’ve encountered here from the first visit was extremely gay friendly - We were treated like one of the family .

Perfect in every way.
Our wedding was absolutely perfect. Ronni and Marco were a pleasure to work with. They were very responsive and easy to contact. They understood that we wanted a classic, elegant wedding and offered many suggestions to ensure our vision would come to life. Marco was an exceptional maitre d' and kept everything running smoothly. Our attendants, Leslie, Ashley, and G, made sure we had everything we needed. They were excellent. The service was truly impeccable in every way and unlike anything we have ever experienced. The food was delicious and the cocktail & Viennese hours were set up beautifully. The quality of the food was phenomenal,Sent on 08/12/2019
which was so important to us as we come from Italian families! Every single detail that we requested was remembered. Many of our guests raved that our wedding was the best they have ever attended. We will always remember our special day fondly and we are extremely glad that we chose the Crystal Plaza as our wedding venue. We highly recommend the Crystal Plaza and hope to attend another wedding there again soon!
Love this Venue, staff is on great and they are on point with everything they do. My personal favorite thing is the balcony to capture a group shot of all the guest at the dance floor!!!
