Amazing and perfect
The best wedding ever. We were married onsite on February 14th and the set up for the ceremony was beautiful and the ambiance was romantic. Marybeth and her staff are amazing and very accommodating. They followed every detail I wanted to perfection. The food was outstanding and plentiful and the drinks were strong. I’m still getting phone calls on how amazing our wedding was. The Reception Center is definitely the hidden gem of New Jersey. I even had people say they are considering using this place for their future events. My family and I couldn’t recommend this place enough.Sent on 02/26/2020

MaryBeth and Brian are incredible. Every little detail of our day was taken care of. They go above and beyond. Our guests loved the food, and people kept telling me how much they enjoyed cocktail hour! They took such care with our decorations and made it look better than we could have imagined. They are also just wonderful people, and they are so helpful and communicative. The value you get here is far and away better than anywhere else. I would recommend this venue to everyone. Can we give six stars?Sent on 12/08/2019
The Reception Center is a wonderful family run venue with great service and delicious food! Having my own wedding there in November of 2010 I can tell you from personal experience the venue and service does not compare! Everything was perfect and they make it stress free during the planning!
Great facility, great staff and great food. I highly recommend The Reception Center at Saint Clement to all my clients & friends.
Adam Saber Event Entertainment has been working at the Reception Center for many years. Within last few years, we had the honor of being made an preferred vendor with The Reception Center and I can not begin to say what an amazing venue they are! Their food is with out a doubt, the best food, whether you choose a sit down or buffet, its prepared for perfection. The room is large in size and they are investing in the newest uplighting technology to provide a decor that meets your desires. With two large bars, there is never a line and the bartenders are professional all the way... I highly recommend The Reception Center and know anyone who chooses them, will not be disappointed.
