    Beautiful, updated/renovated venue

    I’d like to begin by stating the overall experience at The Riviera Waterfront Caterers (now known as “The Riviera Mansion”) was top notch.
    My daughter and son-in-law’s wedding reception was held on Friday, July 19, 2019 beginning at 7 p.m. Both of them knew they wanted this venue within the first few minutes of their first tour of the reception hall and grounds. The Riviera hosts only one event at one time and this was important to them. The venue is located on the Great South Bay but is sheltered from wind and/or crashing waves because it’s situated in an inlet, and is also nestled in a residential area rather than on a commercial thoroughfare. It’s one of the few if not the only venue on Long Island outfitted with a (tremendous) generator should an unfortunate storm occur with an accompanying loss of power! Your event WILL go on as planned. Parking is ample; there are lots on either side of the building.
    The grounds are well maintained and depending on the time of year, many flowers are in bloom. The gazebo and wedding ceremony area is lovely (although my daughter had her ceremony in church) and makes for a scenic backdrop for guests and for photographs.
    The outdoor cocktail hour seating is right out over the water with many umbrellas. The tables are large enough to comfortably fit eight people. This area is also roomy enough to have a single musician, or small group of musicians entertain guests, and even large enough to fit the add-ons such as the sushi bar and the raw clam/oyster bar, as well as a lemonade stand! On the day of the wedding the weather was warm and humid but we had no rain and the cocktail hour food was set up all along the patio. Many guests commented on how pleasant it was to NOT have to wait on any line in order to be served any of the myriad selection of foods.
    The venue has recently undergone some well thought out renovations. Outdoor lighting has been added under and along the many feet of bulkhead. The indoor cocktail room is bright and expansive and the ceilings have been remodeled in order for much more light to enter the room via the very large window overlooking the patio. This is the room in which the “Touch of Viennese” is offered toward the end of the evening. The reception room is rustic, with exposed beams and 2 fireplaces. Walls on either side of the room have been pushed back in order that no matter where guests are seated, there are no obstructed views of the dance floor and the doors leading to the kitchen and restrooms are tucked away from the guest tables. A new cathedral ceiling has been added over the tables in the center of the room which is a stunning addition.
    Regarding the Riviera staff; we dealt almost exclusively with Elena who was a delight. Elena is professional, personable, attentive, thorough, understanding, and accommodating. She is an asset to this organization. We were in extremely competent hands from our first meeting until the day of the wedding. Elena knew exactly how to calm my mother-of-the-bride anxiety and she had a wonderful rapport with my daughter and son-in-law.
    On the day of the wedding my daughter’s bridal attendant was Danielle. Danielle is conscientious, focused, and kind. She bustled my daughter’s dress like a pro. She made sure to check with my husband and me throughout the evening to see whether we needed anything. She helped the newlyweds and their bridal party throughout the photo taking with drinks and food, etc. My daughter had nothing but compliments about Danielle.
    Our sole complaint regarding the service is the fact the maitre d’ never introduced himself to me, or to my husband, nor to the newlyweds. I think our maitre d’ was the man who lined up the wedding party prior to the introductions at the start of the dinner. Other than that point in time, I’m not sure any of us saw him during the evening and I’m sure he never stopped at our table to see whether everything was to our satisfaction. That was a major gaffe. In addition, the coffee and tea were slow in being served and at least the table next to ours was never served coffee and wedding cake at all. I’m unsure if this was true for other tables. Ensuring table service is prompt and efficient is one of the primary duties of the maitre d’ and this again fell short since he was missing in action.
    Kudos to the staff for setting up the tables and the entire venue in the way my daughter had indicated on the diagram they provided. From the balcony of the bridal suite the entire room looked as if it were glimmering under the specialty lights provided by Tim’s Florist (a preferred vendor).
    Regarding the food: In a word, ‘Excellent’. We received nothing but COMPLIMENTS about the food. The cocktail hour was delicious and abundant from start to finish. The dinner selections were great and our guests couldn’t believe the variety of desserts available during the Viennese hour. The wedding cake from Campbell’s (a preferred vendor) was very reasonable and delicious, especially the raspberry mousse filling. We had two exit stations (All-American Burgers and Gator Ade with chips) which must have been enjoyed because by the time I had the opportunity to wander into the main foyer most everything was gone! In addition, I’d like to recommend Tim’s Florist. The bridal and bridesmaids bouquets as well as the table centerpieces were exquisite and Tim’s decorated the wedding cake with fresh flowers exactly as my daughter specified.
    All in all, people have told us this wedding set a high bar and will be “the wedding to beat” going forward; many thanks to The Riviera Waterfront Caterers!

I let my husband decide where we were getting married and he chose this place out of the 3 we narrowed down. we had the best day all around..... the weather was amazing for the beautiful outdoor setting and the staff was above and beyond accommodating.... Irene and Elena always responded to me quickly and answered any questions I had.... all the staff day of were so freaking nice Megan and Danielle were the bomb! I’m beyond grateful and happy to have had such an amazing experience on the best day of my life!
