    Wonderful!!

    I have absolutely no regrets about choosing Riverdale for my wedding. Its so beautiful,, fist off,, and it was spacious enough for COVID safety. Monica, a wedding coordinator there, was flexible, friendly and always willing to help me with any questions and to give suggestions. The wedding went so smoothly, and she worked with our DJ and Phographer to make sure everything happened on time, and they qork8like a well oiled machine. I would HIGHLY recommend Riverdale Manor for your wedding.

    Gorgeous venue -- excellent service

    I can't say enough good things about Riverdale Manor. The venue is stunning and the food absolutely delicious. The staff and owner Maureen and wedding planner Monica went out of their way to make sure the wedding day went off without a hitch. It's always the small things though-- like an heirloom cake server we brought and thought we forgot to bring home but found later that it was carefully wrapped up by the staff in our bundle of things we brought home -- or a bartender that saw the MOB waiting in line and jumped out to serve her specially that sets one place above another. Dani who helped orchestrate the staff and the day was so professional and kind. It is clear that Riverdale knows how to make sure the day is very special and runs smoothly. I would not hesitate to recommend this venue for anyone who is hoping to have a stress free day and beautiful wedding.
