Highly satisfied, couldn’t have asked for more
From our first site visit Teresa made us feel comfortable. She was super easy to work with, accommodating and reassuring throughout the whole process. On the day of, Marion the maitre ‘D and Bryan the captain oversaw everything and made our guests feel welcomed. While we weren’t impressed with the entrees at the tasting, the food turned out great the day of. My only regret was that I didn’t get to try any of the hor deurves for cocktail hour; the bridal attendant did bring them into the bridal suite, I was just too frazzled to eat. Bryan was super attentive and made sure husband and I both got a full plate of dinner as well as both flavors of the sheet cakes.Sent on 05/12/2019
I have no complaints of the service and professionalism except for one minor detail: we had set up small LED tea lights at the edge of the stairs but were asked to move them to the wall in case of them falling off, but when I walked down during processional I ended up knocking over them with my train as I was on the right side by the wall.
Overall, highly recommend this venue. Great value, lovely interiors, no lack of courtesy and thoughtfulness. We’re very happy with our choice.

Brenda, Benard, and the rest of the Renaissance Event Hall (REH) team were fantastic from start to finish. REH provides a menu of options, which allows for each couple to customize their experience. You can choose between a buffet and sit-down dinner, a range of courses (including or excluding dessert), and multiple alcohol packages. Additionally, they permitted us to bring in additional vendors for part of the dinner and dessert, and make last minute changes when necessary. As for the wedding day, Brenda was present to ensure everything ran smoothly (which is especially convenient for couples who cannot afford a wedding planner). There was a member of the wait staff (Diana) assigned specifically to the wedding party; she ensured that everyone had a drink in hand and was wonderful to work with the entire evening. Guests raved about the food, and genuinely had a great experience with all REH staff members and facilities.Sent on 08/26/2018
At the outset, my wife and I were skeptical that a beautiful wedding could come at such a moderate price tag. But REH proved us wrong. REH succeeded all of our expectations at a price well below many other venues in the NYC area.
Thank you REH!

Professional, Consultative, Competitive, Flexible, Creative, Attentive, Personable, Cooperative, and Outstanding Upbeat Attitude on top of incredible food. Great Value in a very fresh unique space. Management and execution is top notch. The rainy weather that day was meaningless in the face of happy guests that were fully enjoying themselves. If you are planning a wedding, you need to see this place and include it among your selection process. The agility and energy of the staff will make your special day so much more pleasurable and easier as they did for us - and that in itself made Renaissance Event Hall the best choice for us. Visiting several times before the event, sometimes after work hours, meeting the staff, trying the food and developing our ideas by coming there truly helped us develop a vision and an aesthetic in very comfortable circumstances instead of being under pressure with outside service vendors thrown in our face. The chemistry was magical and the best decision we made in 2018.Sent on 07/30/2018
