From start to finish, the View on The Hudson was a five star experience for us and all of our guests. The service was impeccable, the food amazing, and the professionalism was second to none. We’ve spoken to pretty much everybody who attended our wedding there on 1/6/18 and they all agree it was one of the best weddings they’ve ever been too.
A true hidden gem!! I would highly recommend this venue! The location is spectacular - if the name didn't give it away. My guests loved the food and everyone complimented the service as well - they referred to it as "impeccable service". Howard and Ralph were just amazing.
Food was good, venue is beautiful. Big bang for our buck, and if we had to do it all over again we would. Can't say enough good things about this venue.
However.....we had a difficult time dealing with our maître d Howard on occasion. We asked that the bride and groom and bridal party have our cocktail hour upstairs in the bridal and grooms suites. Howard almost insisted that we do not, almost to the point of arguing. He even raised his voice at my bride on our wedding night when she refused to go downstairs to the cocktail hour with the guests. We had 200 guests at our wedding, and we knew that we would not be able to get a bite in with all of our guests coming up to us. We chose not to eat downstairs for that reason....plus.....it was a tradition with both of our families that we don't see them until we make the entrance at the reception. The groomsmen and bridesmaids all felt the same way about our maître d. Other than that, we had a very pleasant experience with The View and would do it all over again if we could.
My daughter was married at The View on August 11, 2017. Truly an amazing event down to the very smallest detail carried out by Howard and Ralph and their wonderful staff. The food, service, cleanliness, follow-through was second to none. Superb quality, accommodating staff, delicious food, just wonderful, wonderful, wonderful! The attention to detail, the temperament and professionalism of Ralph, Howard, Noreen and the many wonderful servers made this event a 10 star gala. Our guests were over the top with praise. The food was delicious and every guest felt as if they were the only ones in the room--that is just how terrific The View was. I have one more daughter to marry and we will most certainly be using the View.
Right from the beginning Ralph was attentive and easy to work with. I cannot recommend them highly enough. They made my daughter's dream wedding vision become a reality
Could not be more pleased with The View on The Hudson after having my daughter's wedding there. Ralph, Howard and Joseph delivered on every request, just as promised, with the utmost professionalism. Thank You!
We just had our wedding here this past Friday. We were so happy with The View and Ralph from start to finish. The wedding was a great time. The service was excellent. The venue was beautiful even though it poured rain all day. The venue was just renovated and it really is so beautiful. Definitely check this venue out on your wedding venue search!!
I cannot say enough good things about this venue. Ralph, Patty and the rest of the staff were a pleasure to work with. They made planning our reception easy. They were professional, the food was amazing, the decor was breathtaking and the location was simply perfect. I wouldn't change a thing! All of our guests are still gushing over how gorgeous the venue was.
If you are looking for professionalism, attention to detail, out of this world food and a beautiful location... LOOK NO FURTHER! Ralph was overly attentive throughout the process and amazingly so on the day of (he makes sure you eat and drink!) The venue is BEAUTIFUL and the food is DELICIOUS! My guests are STILL raving about the food and overall look of the venue. I can't recommend this venue HIGHLY enough! There is no need to worry about anything, b/c they take care of it all! From where to place that special little knick-knack you want incorporated on your special day to making sure you're "For the Road" goodies are displayed just how you want them! EXCELLENT EXCELLENT EXCELLENT! You get it all at the View... Professionalism, Value, Deliciousness, Beauty, Service and Peace of Mind!
The View was the best decision we made! The staff was very attentive and Howard Vaz made sure everyone had a good time! The food was good and the place was a great value for our money! The lights are nice and the view at night was beautiful! I can't wait to see my pictures!
When we first met with Howard from View on the Hudson we knew that he could bring our wedding vision to life. He has many many years of experience and truly makes you feel like you have nothing to worry about because you know he will take care of everything. He was always extremely professional and gave us his undivided attention. The venue is gorgeous and is maintained and refreshed throughout the year. The food was delicious and there were so many options to choose from. The venue hosts one wedding at a time, so the place is all yours when you are there. We couldn't have asked for a better venue or for better service than what View on the Hudson provided. We highly recommend this venue and working with Howard.
We had a great November 2015 wedding at View on the Hudson! Howard and the rest of the staff were nothing less than amazing !
My husband and I got married at The View this past weekend and the entire experience was absolutely wonderful. From our first meeting with Howard Vaz, he assured us that he would make the (crazy) wedding planning experience as relaxed and stress-free as possible- he was right! Howard was ALWAYS available for us and handled all of the details from the big tasks down to the little stuff. We had both our ceremony and reception at The View. The outdoor ceremony was so romantic and beautiful- one of the reasons I HAD to get married there was due to the breathtaking views of the water. The outside was set up with white chairs facing a wedding alter and the river- my guests still will not stop telling us how gorgeous the scenery was. Howard had graciously met with my whole family and wedding party the evening prior to ensure the ceremony was flawless and everybody knew the processional and order of the ceremony (phew!) And the reception was just as fabulous. The staff at the View were FANTASTIC- my hubby and I don't drink and the bartender Mary dug up some energy drinks for us out of her own personal stash! How sweet?! Our waitress Theresa was also wonderful and was always asking us what we needed and if she could get us anything. And Howard spent the entire reception making sure we were taken care of. He was there the entire time!!! He helped us all line up for intro's, and helped organize the first dances and cake cutting.
You know how when a big event ends you often walk away thinking it had gone much different than you thought it was? For over a year I had envisioned my wedding to be the perfect evening, and in the end, it was even BETTER than I had dreamed it would be.
Where do I begin? My husband and I had our wedding reception at the view on September 6, 2015. We worked directly with Howard and we're not let down. His attention to detail from start to finish was impeccable. We couldn't have asked for a more perfect night. Everyone was raving about the entire place from the views to all the delicious food. Highly recommend to anyone looking for a stress free experience!
The View On THe Hudson was our dream wedding location. It was the perfect distance for our families to travel and has the most picturesque surroundings. Ralph and Howard are the epitome of professionals. We worked primarily with Ralph and he assured my hisband and I every step of the way. I fell in love with the ballroom, the floor to ceiling windows, and the spectacular view. I also loved that they only take one wedding per day. The selection of incredible food was our favorite part of course! We felt as though we were dining at a five star restaurant. Our guests are still raving about the food. The staff was amazing and gracious of our requests. We enjoyed every moment of the wedding planning process thanks to the incredible staff at The View on the Hudson. My husband and I highly recommend this stunning venue and the kind, considerate, and dedicated staff.
I just recently had a wedding at The View on 7/11/15 and it was absolutely AMAZING! Ralph made our special day perfect and was so attentive and helpful throughout the whole planning process and throughout the actual day of the wedding. There is only 1 wedding at the venue at a time and you are the total spotlight. My guests RAVED about the food and the view of the Hudson River! They also keep complimenting me on how amazing the service was and how attentive all the staff was to them. Cocktail hour is spectacular, the food is plentiful and they have such a wide variety to keep everyone happy! My mother even ripped the back of her dress and the staff helped her sew it up so that no one could even notice.
My fiancé and I actually chose this venue because we went to a wedding there and we were just regular people, no one special to the couple and we were treated like royalty and had the best time. We know our guests felt the same way at our wedding. People are STILL talking about our wedding and how fabulous it was. The View on the Hudson is the PERFECT place for the PERFECT wedding!
I recently had my daughter's wedding at The View on The Hudson on July 11, 2015. From the moment my quests arrived and throughout the entire evening everyone commented about the attention to details and the quality of service here. The food was OUTSTANDING and you can't go wrong with either Maitre D. Both Ralph and Howard are amazing and will do everything they can to make your event the best. Yes the actual View is spectacular.... but it is the people here that give the place that WOW factor. Each server was professional and seemed to really care about delivering a quality experience. Thank you to all of you at The View on The Hudson!
I would highly recommend this place to everyone! I can't say enough about the venue and Howard. We fell in love when we first saw it and ended up booking it for our wedding. I'm so happy we did. Howard was such a pleasure to work with. Our wedding was absolutely amazing. Weddings are stressful and yet Howard made it so easy and stress free. Everyone kept commenting on how they loved the food and the service. I would recommend this place for any special occasion!!! I can't thank them enough for making our day so special!
Just had our daughter's (Jenna & Nick) wedding here this past Saturday. The compliments were extraordinary. My brother-in-law who is in the restaurant business said it was the best wedding he had ever gone to. The food was exceptional and he couldn't believe the size of the steak. He was complimentary of the entertainment, the view, the service and how smoothly the event went. Others also were so impressed and said that it was the best wedding they ever went to (and these are people in their 60's and 70's who have been to many weddings in their lifetime). My father-law-law who just recovered from a hip fracture 7 weeks ago cried at the end of the wedding and said this was the best wedding he ever went to other than his own. ( I guess he wasn't as impressed with my wedding 30 years ago, lol)....Great job, wonderful Ralph, beautiful wedding!
I had my baby shower at the view on the Hudson November 16,2014 and I have to say I\'ve never in my life been to a place like this. From the service to the food! The View on The Hudson is definitely a 5 staring catering hall. I dealt with Howard, who was amazing and understanding to all my needs. The owner, along with Howard, was there the whole time to make sure everything was to our liking. The whole team was professional and on top of things. We are definitely going to hold other events at the view on the Hudson. Once again I\'d like to thank Howard and the rest of the team and ofcourse the chief, David, for the amazing food! Thank you thank you thank you!
We were blown away by our experience with The View on the Hudson. I have to admit that at first I was a little intimidated by Ralph's get-it-done attitude, but he impressed me most of all. Ralph is so detail-oriented that even the most type B bride could pull of an incredible event. Since I'm detail-oriented myself I immediately respected that about him and felt confident that he would help our wedding go smoothly and as close to schedule as possible. He also helped us choose an amazing food and beverage package that our guests raved about. Some people said it was the best food they've ever had at the wedding...and there was so much of it! It was also a bonus to give our guests the option of choosing their dinner the day of the wedding instead of picking meat or veggie months in advance. The venue was gorgeous and we loved that we had the place to ourselves instead of sharing a hall with one or two other events at a time. Plus, the bridal suite upstairs was adorable and the large bathroom was a godsend for a big bridal party. At the end of the day, we had an amazing wedding at The View on the Hudson and are so happy we chose to have our wedding there. Highly recommended for anyone who needs a larger venue space without losing any of the local charm.
We had our wedding at The View on the Hudson and everything was amazing. The staff is very professional and great to work with, they had everything setup as planned. The food was great, everyone who attended praised the selections. The location on the river and venue makes for the most beautiful place to hold any event.
Thank You Howard!!! What can i say; the place is fantastic, the staff is superb, food and drink delicious, my guests never wanted for anything. Howard ran the operation smoothly from beginning to end, attending to me and my bride on our special day with the utmost care and professionalism. If your looking for all of the above and tired of looking at places with no windows, just some glorified giant hallway, then this is the place for you its the closest venue near NYC that has such spectacular views and you will not be disappointed with the food, drink, staff, anything. These guys know what stellar service is :)
Our wedding was FANTABULOUS!!!! The venue was beautiful. The view of the Hudson River, mountains and blue skies were absolutely gorgeous for our fall themed wedding. It was the perfect day for an outside ceremony. Howard Vaz is the best! His guidance, hospitality, and professionalism made it even more perfect. From day one, he made himself readily available for any questions or concerns. From ceremony to reception, Howard kept his staff on point. Myself and the bridal party arrived later than expected but Howard kept the flow smooth and seamless. We didn't miss a beat. He accommodated us in every way. He worked every corner to make sure our guests had food and drinks. He made sure me and my husband had quiet time in the bridal suite while enjoying the tasty hors d‘oeuvres and assortments of fruits and veggies. We got to bask in the moment for a moment. Our guests were extremely satisfied with the service, delicious food and 5-hour open bar with premium liquor ;-). The staff was awesome!! We're all still re-living the day. If you're looking for a venue that can eliminate the stress and provide half of your planning by offering space, food, drinks, cake, scenery, exceptional service, and professionalism, for a reasonable cost, then look no further. The View On The Hudson is your place!! As Howard would say, “You worry about the small stuff, we got everything else covered”. Thanks Howard. Yeh mon! ;-)

Our daughter and son in law's wedding was held at The View on the Hudson on Labor Day weekend. We were extremely pleased with so many aspects of the wedding. From the onset, Ralph, our catering sales manager and Maitre'd, was caring, helpful, and very pleasant to work with. He helped make the day run so smoothly including even helping with the bustle on our daughter's gown. The service on the day of the wedding was outstanding with the staff being very responsive to everyone's needs. The food was good especially during the cocktail hour. And of course the view was outstanding during the ceremony outside and the party inside later on.
