I truly cannot express what an incredible venue Tappan Hill is! The beauty of the location, the professionalism of the staff, and the quality of the food is unsurpassed.Sent on 10/26/2017
From the moment my husband and I set foot in Tappan Hill, we knew it was the venue of our dreams. We fell in love with the history (it was Mark Twain's former estate) and the beautiful location along the Hudson. It was also an easy 45 minute drive from downtown Manhattan, where our ceremony was held. While we had never been to a wedding at an Abigail Kirsch location, we had heard from many of our friends that the food was the best they'd ever had at a wedding. All these things put together meant that booking our wedding at Tappan Hill was a no brainer- and it was the best decision we could have made!
Ed Steinberg was our event coordinator and he was truly outstanding. Working with him was a real pleasure- he was so thorough, professional, and thoughtful in his recommendations to create the perfect menu and timeline. The day of the wedding, Ed worked quietly behind the scenes to make sure that everything ran absolutely perfectly. He was able to triage everything so that my husband and I were able to enjoy every single moment of our reception- I didn't feel even for a second that I had anything to worry about, Ed had everything 100% under control. That feeling was the greatest gift we could have asked for. On top of that, everyone was right about the food-- it was INCREDIBLE! A month after our wedding our guests are still raving about the food, the quality of the servers, and the beauty of the venue. Thank you Tappan Hill & Ed for giving us and our guests the best wedding we could have asked for!

I could not have asked for a better first venue visit experience than with Melissa at Tappan Hill. Completely not knowing what to expect she provided me with a lot of information and lowered my angst. Although we did not end up going with Tappan Hill I kno if we had we would not have been disappointed. They really try to make you fee comfortable :)Sent on 02/08/2019

Cannot say enough wonderful things!
We really struggled to find a wedding venue, and after looking at about 20 places, someone recommended Tappan Hill. From the moment we drove up the beautiful stone mansion, I was totally in love. The mansion has so much character and beauty: the stained glass windows in the front, the stone walls, the fireplaces, the gorgeous rotunda you enter into, the views of the water. In addition to the aesthetics, anyone familiar with catering knows the name Abigail Kirsch, and with good reason. The food options are as beautiful and inventive on the plate as they are delicious. Ed was our event manager and we truly cannot say enough good things about him. From the moment we met with him, we knew that our affair would run smoothly. There is not one detail that Ed doesn't think of. He always answered emails quickly and efficiently, and never once made us feel annoying with our seemingly endless amounts of questions. He alleviated any and all stress, kept everything running on time, connected and coordinated with all of our vendors, and so much more! The fact that our wedding ran so beautifully and smoothly is without a doubt because of him and the amazing service from Abigail Kirsch under his leadership.Sent on 03/20/2019
