Anthonys Oceanview could not have been a better place to have our wedding at! The venue is gorgeous! We got married on the beach and the view of the water with all of the boats is just simply amazing. We also loved the palm trees that they bring in and plant on their beach, it made us feel like we were getting married on a beautiful island and it adds a special touch to the decor/setting.

The food and service the day of our wedding was amazing!!!! Our maitre'd Daniella was very attentive and helpful. She made sure that during the ceremony she helped with the brides dress to get up the stairs and onto the beach. She also made sure we were drinking and eating and that we were happy. Anything we asked her to do she did with a smile on her face.

Brian the event coordinator was also wonderful before the wedding and also the day of the wedding. He made sure that everything was going smoothly,refilled our drinks and made sure that our food was not placed on our table until we were seated and ready to eat. He was always ready and waiting to lend a helping hand when we needed it!

All of our wedding guest keep telling us how beautiful the venue and it's location are and how amazing the food, service and desserts were!!

We are Very happy with our decision to get married at Anthonys Ocean View!! Thank you to all of the staff for making our wedding day beautiful!!

We had the most amazing wedding! From top to bottom every detail was taken care of!
Anthony's Ocean View catered to my every need as a bride and calmed all of my nerves! From Marcelo helping and reassuring us throughout the process, To Katarina making sure EVERY last detail was exactly how I wanted it, all the way to the kindness of Brittany our bride/groom server who was super sweet and helpful and actually made sure we ate!!!

We were also given the royal treatment every time we went there. Always offered wonderful refreshments and a caring ear. For our final details meeting we got held up for a few minutes because they were so busy and Anthony, Katarina and their staff served us an amazing spread of Italian meats, cheeses and appetizers while we waited! They were just phenomenal and always overly hospitable.

And okay I am Italian so can we just talk about the amazing food!!! Oh my goodness! Our main concern when searching for a venue was that the food needed to be outstanding. And let me tell you we hit the JACKPOT!!! Our guests were sooo extremely happy with EVERY last piece of food down to the extraordinary venetian dessert table! Oh my goodness, for someone who is in LOVE with sweets, I was in heaven and so was every other person in the room!

The décor of the venue is just breathtaking and it is a small little piece of island wonder in CT!!! From the gorgeous beach for our ceremony to the amazing garden for cocktail hour, our guests were also given the most beautiful, royal treatment that we had already experienced personally.

We could not have been happier with our choice of Anthony's Ocean View. We had the most fabulous and memorable day of our lives! We would truly like to thank every single person from this venue who helped make our day so perfect!! :)

Our daughter had her wedding reception on 10/19/13 at Anthony's. From start to finish, they were a first class venue to deal with! Nothing was too much for them to accomplish when it came to accomodating our wishes or our guests comfort! The value was amazing! Kudos to Thomas, Alberto and head waitress, Anna! The cocktail hour was outstanding and was held outside on the patio. It felt as though we were at a resort. The cocktail hour was limitless in selection, the dinners timed perfectly and the Venetian table variety and presentation beautiful! It has been two weeks since the wedding and our guests and family are still raving about it!!! Grazie Mille, Anthony's staff!!

We just recently got married at Anthony's and I would recommend this venue to anyone! The food was delicious, the staff was beyond polite and helpful, they were accommodating to our needs and everyone had such a good time! The venue was beautiful and made for excellent pictures as well. I couldn't have asked for a better day and a better venue for our reception. We were in the upstairs room and it just looked so beautiful when it all was put together! Thank you Anthony's!

From the start of planning to the end of the wedding, we were blown away by the service at Anthony's! The staff at Anthony's is amazing! We worked with many consultants which we were worried about at first, but they are very organized to ensure nothing goes wrong the day of the event no matter who your consultant is! There is always a consultant on site 9am-9pm which worked perfectly with our crazy schedules. Alberto was our consultant the day of the wedding and was readily available at all times. He even bustled my dress for me!!! The food was amazing and my guests can't stop talking about how blown away with not only the amount of food there was, but also the quality. The venue can hold up to 3 events at one time which was the case for our wedding, but you couldn't hear a thing from the other two events! You won't find great service and great food at any other venue in CT and not to mention a beautiful view!!!!

From day one of planning, the staff was the best. Working primarily with Rob, every time I walked into his office frazzled he calmly took care of my situation and offered the best solutions that it made me feel silly for worrying in the first place (lol). The day of my wedding, Thomas was helpful, calm (despite starting an half hour late due to my lateness) and went with the flow. I would HIGHLY recommend having your reception (and wedding if need be) here. Thank you to Anthony's Ocean View for helping to make this one of the best days of my life!!

Anthony's Ocean view did a phenomenal job on the day of my wedding! They worked well with communicating with us and making sure we got everything we wanted. The food was amazing and they did a great job styling the event. The location was beautiful, and we had the ceremony outside by the beach. Even though it was drizzling on that morning, they still tried to have a plan b set up for us. I thought it was really nice of them, but we still manage to have an outside ceremony. Everyone that worked there that day were very pleasant and welcoming. We thank you for everything you guys did for us, and we recommend anyone to have they're wedding there.

I can not say one bad thing about Anthony's Ocean View. The food is outstanding and the staff is more than willing to work with your special request(s). As a bride you want to feel comfortable calling the venue multiple times to ask questions (because you want your day to be perfect). Not once did the staff make me feel that I shouldn't be asking too many questions. If your looking for a "destination wedding" location then this is the perfect venue for you. We had a beautiful ceremony on the beach then made our way to the best part of the wedding... the party! The pictures came out beautiful and no one can believe that the wedding took place in New Haven, CT.

When we first saw Anthony's we knew it was the place we would get married. It is like a destination wedding without the airfare. From the ceremony on the beach to the garden cocktail hour and then finally to the reception it exceeded everything we could have imagined. The food was amazing, the liquor kept flowing and the venetian hour was amazing (especially the liquor shots and fondue fountain). Special thanks to Rob our Maître D as he made sure everything flowed smoothly and ensured everything we wanted happened. I would highly recommend this place to anyone that is looking for an amazing place at a great price and even to feel like you are on vacation.

Anthonys ocean view is great! We picked Anthony's due their professionalism and beauty. We had our ceremony outside on the beach and reception inside in the ballroom, and it was classy, beautiful and modern just like we pictured it to be. I was breathless when I first entered into the room, it was everything and more of what's had pictured and imagined! The service was fantastic and the food was out of this world ! Our guests raved about the food, desserts and beauty of everything that night brought! Dropping all of our stuff off the day before for them to set up and place for us was very nerve racking for me, but they did a perfect job of setting up and placing everything just where it belonged and everything was gorgeous !!! Thank you so much !!

My wedding at Anthony's Ocean View was everything I dreamed it would be. My only gripe with Anthony's was that you aren't assigned a staff member who works with your wedding specifically until close to the wedding day so you have to direct your questions to a number of different people. That being said, I have always received the answers and more from each of the people that I did speak with and everyone is very knowledgeable and professional. The venue is GORGEOUS...I can't even tell you how many compliments I got on how beautiful everything was. Numerous people told me it was the most beautiful, smoothly run wedding they have ever been to. Not only that, but their food is to die for...people raved about how delicious their food was...and not just good for a wedding, but some of the best food they've ever eaten anywhere. I would recommend Anthony's without hesitation to anyone wishing for a fairytale wedding.

We recently got married at Anthony's on May 18, 2012 and our experience was simply AMAZING. We looked at several reception locations and while several are beautiful, very few offer amazing food and waitstaff. We had a beautiful day for our reception and were able to take pictures on the water and hold cocktail hour outside. The ambiance on the patio is perfect and makes you feel like you are at a destination wedding. The food was simply amazing- we went with stations and found that package offers a delicious variety that appeals to everyone. The staff assigned to us- we had Alberto and Anna- were by our sides from the moment we arrived until the moment we left. They were professional but very friendly and helped us with anything we needed from drinks to food to even bringing me my dancing shoes! Working with Anthony's staff to plan the wedding (seating charts, menus, decor) was very easy and they guide you through the process one step at a time. For what wedding venues cost in today's world, Anthony's is WORTH EVERY CENT!!!!

Anthony's did an amazing job at our wedding. Our ceremony and reception were run by Thomas, who was incredible in everything that he did. He was able to simultaneously seat guests, make sure that we were okay, calm down any nerves, and make sure that everything ran smoothly. He was everywhere at once, but never obtrusively. By the end of the evening, every guest in the room knew his name and every child adored him.

The food was amazing, the ceremony was gorgeous, and the staff could not have been more accommodating and friendly every step of the way. We do not have a single negative thing to say. Every guest told us how it had been the best wedding they had ever attended and how they were going to be sure to recommend the venue to friends in the future.

Anthony's was the perfect place to have a wedding! They catered to every need we had, I even had my own waiter to make sure I had everyhting I needed. My friends and family are still talking about how wonderful the food was. We had a cocktail hour with over 20 different appetizers, 5 hour open bar a three course dinner a wedding cake and the most fabulous venetian table I had ever seen. My husband and I live in MA along with his side of the family, my family is in NJ, so we decided to meet in the middle to make travel fair for all sides. Anthony's was perfect,they helped with any questions we had in a quick and thorough manner. We got married outside in the gazebo and looking at the pictures it looks like we are on an island not in CT. I would highly recommended Anthony's as a place to have a wedding.

We wanted to have a vegan wedding, and we were planning it from a different state. Anthony's was completely receptive to the idea and put out an absolutely amazing feast. They say a bride never eats on her wedding day, but how could I help it? The food was incredible.

Anthony's also graciously offered their garden for our ceremony in the morning, despite the fact that they would be catering our reception off site. We had booked a venue for the reception, and they were happy to set up and provide the table linens for us. They also offered a bar service.

Our wedding was a dream, and Anthony's played a big part in that!

Service was excellent. Food and added features such as the dessert table with optional fog were loved by guests at our wedding. Staff was very helpful and gave us discounts on chair covers. Chef made a special meal for the bride. We had an interfaith wedding (Jewish/Catholic) and included both gazebos in our ceremony. We accidentally sent out wedding invitations with the time being 30 min earlier and they were very accommodating and had everything set up on time. Before the wedding we made many visits to Anthony's to look around and plan things out and people were happy to show us around as long as there wasn't an event going on. We had a beautiful wedding on the ocean at sunset. Perfect location and many things were included making planning easy. Highly reccommended!

Every detail was taken care of on our wedding day. We had our ceremony on the beach and our personal butler assigned to us brought a basin of water for my wife to wash the sand off of her feet. He took amazing care of us throughout the night. Our photographers brought us outside to take pictures for sunset and we had just sat down to eat our meal. When we came back in he personally went and made us new plates hot off the buffet table. We honestly never dreamed of such service or the amazing day we had. All of the staff was so great. Thank you for everything!

Anthony's was great and I would def recommend it as a venue. The food is by far the best out of all the venues (everyone talked about it). If you are going to have a wedding, let the food stand out because thats what guests are going to remember. They were very helpful and went out of their way to make my night go smoothly. They treat you like king and queen.
We got married on their beach. My only complaint was paying a $500 fee to get married on a public beach!
It was worth it though.Cocktail hour on the patio is amazing, everyone loved it. The accomodate you in every way possible :)

The food is excellent and the presentation is breathtaking. The view of the beach is wonderful and above all the quality of customer service is unparallel. I recommend it highly!

They have amazing desserts!!

I loved that Anthony's offered a substantial discount to have a wedding on a weeknight (we did a Thursday). This really helped us to make the most of our rather small budget while having what felt like an extravagant wedding. Everyone loved the food, and the setting could not have been more beautiful. We were married right on the beach, and while we spent some time in the garden and patio afterward, it felt like we were in Hawaii! You definitely don't feel like you are in New Haven, CT. The service was amazing, and they have a staff person dedicated to waiting on you as far as drinks and food. All of the staff were extremely knowledgeable, and they even had a hand mirror and warm, damp cloths waiting for us after the cake cutting! Amazing wedding!

Anthony's was the best place I could have imagined to have our wedding. The food alone was worth every penny not to mention the top shelf full bar and amazing Venetian table. Anthony's was professional in every aspect and gave us the best attention despite the fact that there were 3 weddings going on. Only thing that did come up was the wedding next door's dj had huge speakers and at first you could hear the introductions and bass. But as soon as we mentioned something, they took care of it.

Only thing that did come up was the wedding next door's dj had huge speakers and at first you could hear the introductions and bass. But as soon as we mentioned something, they took care of it.

Anthony's was the perfect choice for our beach side wedding. They were friendly and accommodating to all of our needs and requests. The food was outstanding. Especially the Venetian desert table. Our guests could not stop raving about this. We would highly recommend this venue to anyone looking for that seaside feel. We took our photos outside at sunset where the view is amazing and they are stunning!!! One caution book early as they book quickly for the summer months!!!

Beautiful scenery, nice people, reasonable price, excellent food!
My only complaints are minor: I found having a personal waitress kind of annoying, and I thought the sweetheart table actually being in the shape of a heart was cheesy.
My DJ told me there would be music projected outside during the cocktail hour and there wasn't. I think that's because there was another wedding going on on the beach during the cocktail hour. Some people might not like that, but I thought it was pretty cool - it was an Indian wedding with a beautiful, elaborate canopy. Everyone thought it was fun to see another wedding.

The setting was absolutely perfect for my reception. I loved this venue!

Anthony's Ocean View did a great job in helping us plan for our big day. They were available to answer questions any time I called and were very professional and knowledgable. Although we didnt get to eat on our big day, we also heard from many of our guests that the food was exceptional. I would recommend Anthony's Ocean View to all of my friends.

I had my wedding and reception at Anthony's Oceanview this past weekend. I was told I had to pay an extra $3.50 per chair because they only provide 30 for the ceremony. That is something I would have liked to know ahead of time. I asked for one arch that matched my wedding, they set up the opposite arch that totally did not match my wedding. I was called 20 minutes before my wedding had suppose to start and was told they couldn't find my place cards. If these were my only concerns I would be ok. However, I arrived nine minutes late. I was told that another wedding had started and only had less than 10 tens before it ended. Well they lied. Because I arrived at 5:39 p.m. my guest had to wait until the guest for the 6:00 p.m. wedding arrived, were seated and waited for that wedding ceremony to be done before they even let me get out of the limo. By this point my guest were unhappy sitting in 86 degree weather for over an hour. How tacky was it that my guest had to see a whole other wedding, while I sat in the limo for an hour. I sent two family members to find the person in charge of my wedding to see if we can switch ceremony time for hor devours time, so that at least they can get something to eat and drink while they waited. The staff member in charge knew I was upset and was nowhere to be found. Finally after an hour I got the ok to start my wedding, half way down the aisle the other wedding started their music and their wedding music over powered my ceremony music. IT WAS A DISASTER!!! I am so upset. I would NOT recommend this reception site to anyone. Beautiful scenery but not worth it!

Perhaps these other brides had their wedding at Anthony's Oceanview when it was not the busy wedding season, but I had mine in September and Anthony's ruined my wedding! Their ceremony set up is two gardens right next to eachother seperated by a partition of trees. Even after numerous reassurances that they NEVER have two ceremonies at the same time, My worst nightmare came true! Another ceremony started at the exact same time as mine. The Justice of the Peace and the music was so loud that my ceremony had to be delayed by 45 mins..My poor husband had to stand up there while all the guests stared at him for 45 mins.. My maitre d was obnoxious! When asked by one of my bridesmaid's what was going on? His response was, "Now you see why my job is so difficult!" He disappeared throughout the whole ceremony, he screwed up the order of parents walking down so he sent my husband's parents first..the whole thing was a mess! I am just chipping at the tip of the iceberg too! It was a complete debacle! All my guests came up to me and said," Well the ceremony was rough, but your DJ was great!" If you want everyone to remember your ceremony as "rough" then go to Anthony's Oceanview.. I would suggest spending that kind of money some place else..where they care about their brides and their special day!!
