Beautiful Place for a Reception
The venue was the perfect setting for our wedding of just under 100 guests. It was intimate but the tables weren't on top of each other. Having the cocktail hour outside on the terrace was absolutely beautiful. The butlers serving wine and appetizers was a nice touch. The food was outstanding and the dessert table display was phenomenal. The menu had a variety of options including Buffalo favorites & twists on classic comfort food. The Grilled Cheese Sandwich with Tomato Soup Shooters was a crowd favorite. The staff and the coordinators that we worked with were wonderful. They were responsive to our requests and emails were answered in a timely fashion. I would definitely recommend this venue.Sent on 12/29/2018

We had our son's wedding rehearsal dinner at The Mansion in July 2016. What an elegant setting for an unforgettable event. The decor, atmosphere and food were perfect as was the staff. Superb and attentive assistance in planning everything. The gardens provided a great location for the cocktail hour with valet parking and a saxophonist providing a great backdrop. A special place for an memorable event.Sent on 07/22/2016
