Max, there are not enough words to express our gratitude for everything you & your staff did for us for our daughter’s wedding this past Saturday night. Shari joins me in sharing our heartfelt thanks. We don’t know where to begin. The food was amazing - nothing but quantity AND quality – everything was truly delicious. And what great surprises from you throughout the evening! Truly exceptional & truly sensational! The service was impeccable – from Marco being in 12 places at the same time, to Lesley shadowing my daughter & anticipating her every move. And you. You are first class in every sense. You are amazing. You were everywhere. And you were 110% correct with every single one of your suggestions & recommendations. You run an incredibly well-oiled machine. Because of you I will be singing Crystal Plaza’s praises for the rest of my life. We are forever grateful for everything you did for us. Please share our sincere thanks with everyone on your staff. Lastly, Allan, please double Max’s salary & give him some time off! Thanks again for everything. It’s all so very very much appreciated. And again, as I said, if you ever need a testimonial, I am your guy.

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!

Dream Wedding Venue!!
We had our wedding about a month ago and we chose Crystal Plaza, we immediately fell in love with the venue and found the staff to be incredibly professional and attentive. The venue had a warm and elegant feel to it which is something we desired. The recently renovated cocktail room had a modern feel and look to it and we really liked the new hardwood floors for the ceremony room upstairs. On all levels, from the food, the service, and look of the venue the Crystal Plaza exceeded our highest expectations and has had our guests raving for the last month how it was the most spectacular wedding they had ever been to! We worked with Barry and Nella leading up to the wedding they were able to answer our all questions quickly and their experience put any concerns about details to rest. They were also able to recommend excellent vendors for us to use and were extremely satisfied with all that they suggested.
The food alone deserves special consideration as it was not only the best we had ever had at a wedding but the amount that they served was mind blowing. The cocktail hour had so many different stations, all of which were just incredibly delicious and the presentation of both the food and the decorations was extremely elegant and created the perfect atmosphere for our winter wedding. For the main course, guests raved not only about the taste of the food but the attentiveness of the staff and the option to get additional servings if they desired, not a single person left without being as full as they wanted to be!
The day of the wedding, Nella and her team were on TOP of it. Every little detail or question, they immediately jumped on it and had the whole entire day running smoothly. Our wedding day moved flawlessly. In the bridal suite, they brought us food from the cocktail hour and made sure we ate food! The bridal and groom attendants were super attentive. If there was anything little thing we needed they were there making sure we were happy and comfortable.
The Crystal Plaza creates a truly unsurpassable and unforgettable wedding experience. We would highly recommend the Crystal Plaza if you are looking for the dream wedding venue!
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!!!
