I really am not sure where to start. We are beyond thrilled with how our wedding turned out. Chris and Matthew are extremely accommodating and helpful every step of the way. The prices are reasonable and many things that were "add-ons" at other venues are standard for them. Prior to our big day, we were never told no when we made a request, no matter how big or small. One reason our day was flawless was because Bobby, the Maitre-d', was AMAZING. He with us every minute of the wedding. Whenever we needed ANYTHING (including bustling my dress!) he was on top of it! He made sure we ate dinner and had plenty to drink. We really can't say enough about how great Bobby and the rest of the staff are! The food was not your typical wedding food. Everything was fresh and high quality. A few guests commented on asking for their steak to be rare and it came out exactly how they requested. The only complaint that we have received from our guests is that their was TOO MUCH food! We ended our night with a breakfast sandwiches and drink for each guest as they left. We LOVE SGM!Sent on 05/29/2016

50th Wedding Anniversary
This past Sunday, we celebrated our 50th wedding anniversary at South Gate Manor. You, the entire Marino family, put the place in our hands for a customized festivity. And what a job it was! Everything was perfect. Chris and Mathew who handle the banquet did everything we asked and then some. Brian, who handled the video was fantastic, Stephanie, the florist, couldn't have been better. When Bobby (the best maitre d ever) took us to view the ballroom on our own, before the quest were allowed in from the cocktail hour, we were speechless. It was a vision come true. The Venetian hour was as our guests expressed "over the top". We would not have changed a thing for the evening. A special thanks to SGM for allowing us to include all the special stations of food that we wanted, for setting up for two bands so we could have music at all time, to allowing special request for flowers and for ending up with a dream of a life time. We will never forget this evening and better yet neither will our guests. So many have expressed that they have never been to such a wonderful affair as this was. So we will end with saying one big thank you to all of South Gate Manor. Love you all, Jean and JoseSent on 04/18/2019

Most amazing experience!
South Gate Manor was an absolute dream! From the moment we met with Matt and Chris they made us feel at ease. Anytime I would get a little stressed, they ensured me things would be perfect, and they were right! From the food to the service, to the amazing atmospheres they create, it truly was a magical day. Everyone I spoke with who attended the wedding couldn’t stop talking about how amazing the food selection was. From the spread at the cocktail hour to the endless desserts at the venetian hour.Sent on 07/02/2019
Another wonderful thing was having the matradee and bridal attendee right next to us the whole day. It made me feel so comfortable. From the moment we stepped off the bus, they were there to hold my hand and my dress. If something silly or small happened they were right there to take care of it. Earlier in the evening, before cocktail hour I was getting my hair redone and had been running around all day and was so hungry. My matradee made me sit down with napkins and spoon feed me as I got my hair done. He went above and beyond to ensure I eat and enjoyed myself. At the end of the night I spilled something on my dress and before I could even ask for a napkin, he was on his hands and knees cleaning my dress. These silly little things really made a different of the day to make sure it went perfect. I would gladly host another event here or recommend to a friend. South Gate team you are amazing!!!!
