Jan 2020 Winter Wedding
My wife and I had the perfect wedding at Il Tulipano. Working with Gina and Sunday has been an absolute pleasure. The food, service and staff were amazing. I would highly recommend Il Tulipano to anyone looking for a wedding venue.Sent on 02/01/2020

Il Tulipano exceeded our expectations in every way. The food was absolute top quality with many guests commenting how it was the best food they ever had at a wedding. The service was impeccable; everything was served hot and efficiently. The grounds were gorgeous and beautifully manicured; the pictures taken in the gardens were stunning. The uplighting they provide as part of your package added a warm glow to the atmosphere. The staff at Il Tulipano were always very friendly and accomodating. We worked with Donald who guided us with his expertise in wedding planning and had a great sense of humor to help keep the stress levels down. We highly recommend Il Tulipano for any formal event.Sent on 10/04/2013

September 2020 Wedding
Being a 2020 bride was not easy, but I could not be more thankful to have chosen il Tulipano for my wedding. From the first day meeting with Gina for the initial look at the venue to the day of the wedding the service was impeccable. Our wedding was originally planned for June, but unfortunately had to move it to September. il Tulipano made the transition so easy. They assured me they would make it happen and they sure did. Even though Gina who my husband and I booked with, was on leave during Covid with the wedding season being at a stand-still, but she still walked me through every detail and kept me thinking positively for the September date. She truly kept me calm through all those uncertain months. The food was absolutely delicious and the service from the bartenders to the servers was professional and courteous. Our wedding attendant and maitre d' (Sunday and Carol) were a God sent! They anticipated every need my husband or I needed. They made sure everything was taken care of and most importantly that we ate! The ballroom was gorgeous and the Viennese hour was amazing. Lastly, because the venue only allows one wedding at a time, the space truly feels like yours. The whole day was absolutely perfect and I couldn't be happier. It's been two months and I'm still getting compliments on what a great time the guests had. Thank you il Tulipano!Sent on 11/07/2020
As a wedding professional I work with my catering site but Il Tulipano is one of the finest catering sites in NJ. We hosted a family party recently and they go above and beyond for the clients. Looking forward to using them again in the near future.
Il Tulipano Catering was actually the Venue that Rita (co-owner of My Cinderella's Dream) and her husband got married at. Their Wedding was in April and even though it drizzled that day the Catering Hall was bright and inviting. The food is outstanding and all the people who work there couldn't have been more accommodating. Just goes to show you that good food, great place, friends and music is all you really need to make a great Wedding (Party). We as Vendors ourselves know how important it is to have a great review. We have worked with Il Tulipano on many occasions getting our Brides ready for their Wedding Day. We recommend them highly recommend them. Thank you for always being so gracious.
