    The best day ever!

    I wish there were 10 stars to give because that is truly what this venue deserves. Had my wedding there on 10/10/21 and the entire day was absolutely magical. Top to bottom they were absolutely amazing to work with. From the fantastic views, to the breathtaking bridal suite I was completely blown away. Very professional, easily contacted, guests still raving about the food. Amazing team including Tara and Megan who knew what I needed before I even did. Staff was very attentive to all of my guests and really made my special day magical. Don’t walk but rub on over to them for an absolutely amazing wedding experience!

    Best day ever!

    We got married on 09/03/2021. BEST DAY EVER!! Seriously, the Riviera blew us away the day of our wedding. The grounds are beautiful to begin with, and pair it with amazing service = day made. The staff was so attentive to not only my husband, myself, and our bridal party, but to ALL of our guests. Our guests could not get over how attentive the staff was and they could not stop saying how gorgeous the venue was itself as well. There were so many people that had never heard of the Riviera and said it was a hidden gem. We were SO happy to hear this. We fell in love with the venue when we toured it and were just as happy when we found out our guests fell in love with it too. If you're looking to get the best of both worlds, getting married on the water & a rustic feel, the Riviera is the place! Food is AMAZING too!! Highly, highly recommend!!

    Magical Wedding


    Roz G
    Saddle River, NJ

    My son got married last week and I am still over the moon on how perfect everything went. I have to start with that I am a very critical person and the owners and staff at the Rivera have exceeded my exceptions that my son ,the groom ,is still in shock that I can not find a thing to complain about.

    Setting. Picturesque and Perfect!!!!!

    Although rain was expected the owners never lost faith that the kids could have their magical wedding outside. Our guests flew in from all over and terms like magical, romantic and elegant is a common theme with all the thank you calls I have received from our guests. The mansion is located on a private road and when you pull up it is like you booked a destination wedding . It is located on the Great South Bay and during the ceremony you can view beautiful boats in the background. The flowers on the grounds are magnificent. I had some guests who were concerned about the Delta Variant and they were able to spend most of the evening outside overlooking the peaceful south bay if they chose to do so. Everyone was made to feel special and heard and their concerns addressed.
    One event at a time so it is like having the mansion and grounds to yourself and your guests for the duration of your event.

    The Cocktail Hour.
    Everything you can imagine. We added the lamb chops, oyster and clam bar a lobster, crab legs and colossal shrimp station and a sushi station. Although ,we thought we had to add all this it was not necessary. I have never seen such a complete cocktail hour on the banks if the Great South Bay.

    Dinner.

    Choice of 4 entrees and they all came out hot and delicious.

    Viennese Room not Table. Everything you can imagine plus more. A ice cream station and a cannoli station as well.

    Staff and Service.

    I was very concerned with service quality since during the pandemic I know good servers were hard to come by. This was not the case. All servers, bar tenders and staff could not be any more accommodating. Special shout out to Irene, Jimmy and Tara for making our day magical and perfect.

    Thank you

    Roz and Michael
