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.Sent on 09/04/2018

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

Where do I even begin? My husband and I had our wedding reception at Crystal Plaza 5/11/19, and it truly was the best night of our lives. We knew we found something special when we stopped at Crystal Plaza back in July, after a tiresome day of touring New Jersey venues. From the beautiful lush grounds, to the romantic fairy-tale ballroom, to the detailed tour from Max, Crystal Plaza quickly became our top choice. I can now say without hesitation, it was the best decision my husband and I made during our wedding planning process. Max worked with us to make sure our special night was exactly as we dreamed. Cocktail hour was unlike anything our guests had ever experienced. The raw bar and tequila bar are a must! I was blown away by how gorgeous and breathtaking the ballroom was, I truly felt like a princess.. and OMG the service! I will never get over the team of people helping us on our day. Marco, Leslie, and G were phenomenal and made sure that not only were we having fun and enjoying ourselves, but also our family and friends. Leslie was a dream, toweling me down after dancing, fixing my hair and dress, and not to mention always making sure I had a drink in my hand. I will never forget how calm and at ease they made us feel on such a big day. The food itself was absolutely delicious, and our guests were blown away by the traveling treats. Everything was just perfect. It's a night we will be talking about for the rest of our lives. I would choose Crystal Plaza again and again and again!Sent on 05/16/2019
