If you want a unique and amazing venue for your wedding reception look no further than Atlantis Banquets & Events. This venue offers an event that every bride and groom dream of for their wedding day. Our wedding reception far exceeded our expectations from the moment that we were greeted with champagne and strawberries, experienced a unique cocktail hour in the aquarium amongst the sea exhibits, and then went on to enjoy the reception in the beautiful upstairs room overlooking the Peconic River. The service provided by the staff was exceptional beginning with the initial planning with Craig Alexander, to the actual wedding day with Lori, Jayme and Jacquie and all of the other staff who were very attentive to our every needs. The food served throughout the event was delicious and seemed endless. At the end of the evening our out of town guests had the convenience of staying next door overnight at the Hyatt Place East End. Many of our guests commented on how this was the best wedding reception they ever attended. Thank you Atlantis Banquets & Events for making our wedding day a memorable celebration!

Everything about Atlantis was AMAZING! The staff was truly professional and made everything seem personable. They were always there when we need them and they answered all of our questions right away. The amount you get for the price was fabulous! My husband and I couldn't have been happier! All of our guests loved the venue. They loved the feel of the aquarium and just the way it was setup blew them away. We really couldn't have picked a better place to have our wedding!

Atlantis was really fantastic, they accomodated me on everything and made the entire process of wedding planning enjoyable for me and my wife. The staff was fantastic both in planning and the day of. I couldn't have been happier with them or any of the vendors they recommended. They were easy and quick to communicate with, the food was excellent, the venue was gorgeous and everyone had a great time. I have family members and friends who hate weddings who stayed till the end and then raved about how unique, different and most important fun and memorable!

We had a wedding planned for July 4, 2013 but there was a sickness in the family that came on rather suddenly. Craig was wonderful and helped us find a new date that was only a month away. I'm still getting compliments on how our wedding was the wedding of a lifetime (it IS an aquarium after all). The bridal attendant, Jayme and the Captain where amazing. There were a few hiccups along the way, but the wedding was wonderful. We ended up going back the next day to give the bridal attendant and the captain an extra tip (and we're students with little money, so that's saying a lot). I'm already planning our 50th wedding anniversary :)

While our wedding was already fated to be a memorable one given the conflict of the threatening hurricane, the atmosphere, service and unique experience your facilities and staff provided allows it to be remembered for more than the ill fated weather! Atlantis is more than a catering hall; I feel it would be a disservice to call it that. Upon entering the establishment our guests were instantly transported to a magical fabled location. The overwhelming abundance of quality food and drink was unspeakable; with many guests pondering if a dinner was indeed to follow, how would they be able to consume it with the little room left in their stomach? The unique scenery left guests floored as they circulated around the room to see the various marine exhibits.
While one may feel that it would be hard to contend with the aquarium, the Sea Star Ballroom left those in attendance in a similar state. As cocktail hour ended, gasps and further words of excitement followed as guests were escorted by staff up the marble staircase to the reception area. The grand chandelier held a place in various conversations throughout the evening; particularly given its blue lit lights which were questioned as coincidence or staged to match the bridal colors. Through the evening, our guests continuously raved about the impeccable service that all tables- not just those on the head tables- had. They rarely had a drop left in their glass before a new one appeared! Along with the vast quantity of food, they were thoroughly impressed with the quality; many unable to fathom how it could be made on such a large scale at such a high excellence. While many guests made their way to the dance floor, others took in the various sites from windows and the balcony; a few found more enjoyment from the bar (many wondering if they drank too much or if it did indeed light up under the marble!) It was a great honor to be the first wedding in the new facility.
I am embarrassed that I do not recall her name, but I did want to highlight an individual who made mine and my husband’s evening spectacular; our bridal attendant. From her positive, uplifting words regarding the passing the weather to the attentive service, she was amazing. She consistently made sure that every detail and need was completed and assisted in any way needed. At the end of the night, I was surprised to find that she had all our belongs- glasses, cake server, pictures from cocktail hour- set aside in a bag for us.
The various correspondences from those in attendance after the event is a further testament to the success of our wedding due to Atlantis; I can not count how many people called to rave about it! Even a few of my unmarried friends stated that they will definitely be calling in the future to host their wedding there.
Again, thank you for the success of our wedding and for making our dream wedding more than we could have anticipated.

Atlantis Marine World truly made my wedding the most greatest and memorable day of my life. They were incredibly accommodating in every way possible. The food was delicious.... and the cake OMG! it looked sooooo amazing. I love how they have many options on where to have different parts of your wedding, food, and such. I would certainly recommend them to any couple who is looking to get married on Long Island. The best part was certainly the atmosphere of it being in an aquarium... it was classy and not cheesy at all. I looooved it!

We used the Atlantis for a Bar-Mitzvah on May 1st 2010 and have to say it was an unbelievable experience! From the day we booked it, which was 2 years in advance to the day of our party it was nothing but smooth sailing!! Instead of making this a long review that no one reads I will just hit the most important things... They place looked magnificent, who needs decorations there? There was nothing that I asked for that wasn't responded with a "Yes we can do that", they made suggestions to me that made my party even better, they added food in the end to my cocktail party which was a surprise. Nothing was off limits, except the ferris wheel, which Bob informed me can be dangerous of throw up accidents if to much drinking goes on! When all was done and we said our goodbyes, the staff had every single thing packed up for us and on a cart to help put in our car. We literally walked out 10 minutes after the guest. It was a perfect night that I would never forget nor will any of my 200 and some guests!!

When all was done and we said our goodbyes, the staff had every single thing packed up for us and on a cart to help put in our car. We literally walked out 10 minutes after the guest. It was a perfect night that I would never forget nor will any of my 200 and some guests!! Read less

AMAZING!!! This was the best venue possible. Besides being a unique facility, the best food, the best value, the staff are wonderful. Any questions that we had were answered right away. Any issues that came up during the wedding the staff dealt with on their own and I never even heard about it. They go out of their way to make sure your day is stress-free and perfect. The only slight drawback that we noticed is that the dance floor and tables are in two different rooms so when the wedding first started people weren't dancing... however the dj was able to get everyone in to dance. The aquarium is so neat because all of the displays are open so people can walk around and enjoy the beautiful aquarium.

I can't have asked for anything better! Atlantis Marine World gives an amazing wedding! Not only is the aquarium gourgeous but the whole place is yours for the night! This is a unique and memorable wedding that screams fun! The staff is an A+, the food exceptional, they were so attentive to our needs and their attention to detail was perfection. They were open to any suggestions that I had and were always easy to get in touch with, very easy to talk to and we really felt like a pampered well looked after bride and groom. We got to pick out details to make out day unique to who we are.

I am still hearing compliments from my wedding. You wouldn't usually hear of a wedding in an aquarium. At first this sounds as though it would be cheesy and way too out of the ordinary. Atlantis turns this wedding idea into a sophisticated yet fun reception venue with all of the features of any other reception hall, but with the addition of an aquatic wonderland. First off, you can have the ceremony virtually anywhere on the aquarium grounds. You can get married outside on the docks, in front of a coy pond, between two statuesque penguins, indoors, or even in a shark-tank. You have full run of the whole aquarium, as there are no other guests there besides your own. Atlantis provides it own catering service and takes care of everything from table and centerpiece set-up, event planning, and even provides the wedding cake with design of your choice. The dinner tables are set up literally next to the fish tanks creating an underwater environment to keep your attention the whole night. The food was absolutely amazing, beating out any food I have ever eaten at any other wedding or restaurant I have ever been to. The staff provided service promptly throughout the entire process from booking and throughout the night itself. Contrary to popular belief, there is NOT a fishy smell in the aquarium as you eat. If you want a memorable wedding replacing fancy wallpaper and chandeliers with beautiful fishtanks and underwater adventure without giving up elegance, delicious food and amazing service, an Atlantis wedding is for you.

Atlantis Marine World Aquarium is the perfect venue for the nautical couple. My husband and I chose it after finding out they held weddings, we had gone there on many dates. There is nothing like tying the knot in front of an indoor lake and waterfall - especially when the bride makes her entrance on a beautiful wooden bridge. We were married in November 2004 and people are still raving about our wedding. People dined next to tropical reefs and the kids were entertained by the touch tanks - petting stingrays and bamboo sharks. For those who were not into dancing - there were tanks and exhibits to gaze at. They had the dinner line go through the Shark Tank cave so that no one was bored waiting for dinner - they enjoyed watching the sharks, fish and infamous sea turtle "Jaws". Their food was delicious - they had a buffet, there was something for everything. The baker did an AMAZING job - he made our cake exactly how we wanted it, I didn't want to cut it!! It was absolutely amazing and beautiful .... I suggest it to anyone!!

Atlantis totally did us right. From the get go they were super responsive and maintained that high level of attention throughout the entire planning process which was extremely impressive.

On the day of the event, everything clicked into place and we knew we were in able hands. Many of our guests remarked on how great the food and service was.

We were looking for a unique venue and found it in Atlantis. If you are looking for something different but do not want to have to coordinate everything yourself, Atlantis is the perfect fit! And they have a shark tank! What other venue can boast that!

Our wedding at Atlantis was exceptional! The food was excellent, the price per plate was very reasonable, the atmosphere was spectacular. It's been nearly a month and our guests are still talking about it to their friends, apparently it was the wedding of the year and that's due in large part to the efforts and service by the Atlantis staff. I had to give 3 stars on Professionalism only because we had a conflict the night before the wedding, we were scheduled for our rehearsal but they booked another event and we got shafted. However they did make the venue available to us earlier on our wedding day so we could rehearse then, so they did there best to fix everything as well as they could. I would definitely recommend Atlantis to anyone looking for something more than your typical catering hall, this was truly the experience of a lifetime for us and our guests, and that's thanks to the staff at Atlantis.

Overall our wedding was great, but the weeks and months leading up to it were stressful. Our menu and our concept were unique and we designed it ourselves, and although at first we were assured that everything could be done to OUR plans as it came closer people became less responsive. In the end, we stood our ground and the event turned out great, but the management/event coordination left a lot to be desired. Three key people really made up for the rest of the staff; Chef Sean, Jayme and Mal. Those three are awesome. Venue is beautiful. Chef Sean's food is delicious. Serving staff are exceptional and attentive to all guests. Just get new management.

There was little to no discount on the hotel part, I had a lot of out of state guests and tthey were wtill charging us $260 a night and that was garanting them 12 rooms. 2 days prior they still had 8 rooms open and still wouldn't drop the prices at all. me and my wife actually couldn't afford there room and had to stay off site from atlantis. the people were nice they helped us in anything we needed they were on top of getting me and my wife our drinks and food the people where top notch in there service and everyone was really nice.

Our wedding was held on Sunday, October 11 2009. Please take this below letter sent to Bob Lanieri, the Aquarium Director of Catering, on Monday, October 12th 2009 in careful consideration.

Bob,

First allow me to complement you on the service, atmosphere, and food that I, my new wife, our family, and our friends enjoyed on the night of October 11th 2009; it was an experience not soon to be forgotten. I truly meant what was said in the card... your are a gentleman and a master craftsman. Our bridal attendant Kim was exquisite. Kim was charming, attentive, and an absolute joy. The wedding, from an outsider's stand point, for the most-part was flawless. I would truly like to thank you from depths of my heart.

However... I am not sure whether or not Ron (the maitre d') has made you aware of the rather embarrassing episode that occurred at the close of the evening. If not, please allow me to explain...

At sometime just after 12:00 am of what was a rather exhausting evening (and thankfully after ALL my guests had made their way out), Ron approached me with a "Gratuity Chart", which, according to him, "we should have been provided with at our last meeting with you (the catering director), which was not the case.

It was my understanding that the "service charge" included in the $13000.00 paid to Atlantis Marine World was to cover ALL further expenses including gratuity to the attending staff that evening.

After having a marvelous time, being approached by Ron with yet another "BILL for SERVICE" was to say the least embarrassing and insulting. I departed feeling rather let down by the whole experience.

My wife & I were NEVER made aware of this "Gratuity Chart". Yes, your staff does deserve any and all gratuity due to them. They worked diligently to insure that all my guests had a marvelous evening. I have thoroughly searched ALL of our records regarding the information you have provided us and found NOTHING of the sort. (My wife, too, remembers never receiving one or even hearing of one, and if it was given to us, she would have had it, and this would not have happened, as she is neurotic about details like this.)

I presented Ron with $500.00 cash from my wedding gift envelopes, that I, feeling like a fool, frantically sorted through in a side office at 12:30am, as my new bride, and our bridal party/family sat outside in an idling limo, in curiosity as to what was occurring inside with just the sense that something was not right.

After all the wonderful things I have heard and read about events held at Atlantis this was so very deeply disappointing. I, and everyone I have spoken to, have been truly bothered by this occurrence. We are all hesitant to return to Atlantis Marine World for any reason due to this unfortunate incident.

Please see to it that this NEVER happens again to anyone else,

I feel that somethings were too costly in comparison to other venues, but did not understand why. I found it highly uncommon and did not appreciate the 20% "service charge" being taxed. It only took away from what we would have given as the tax really did add up.

Before the actual date I was so excited to have my wedding at Atlantis. the night of the wedding was horrible. I was charged for 6 extra plates. I was bothered on several occasions that I owed money for these plates. I shouldn't be bothered with this during my wedding. It was in my contract to have chair covers, to cover the outdated chairs. The night of my wedding there were no covers on the chairs. In all my pictures I now have these ugly chairs!

although the facility is a beautiful place. I have to say that the services provided are substandard. The "bridal attendant", was rude!!! & the "matra'de" was also THE most unprofessional person I have ever encountered. The bridal attendant was not to be found when needed. The hall charged for EVERYTHING! including putting the chair covers on?? Nothing was announced People had no idea the couple were about to cut the cake So much to mention. No it is not worth the price they charge think twice before booking your event & get EVERYTHING in writing

I had many issues and got no response when I contacted them after my wedding. My photographer was yelled at by my bridal attendant before she stormed off, leaving my groom to hold my dress. When the cocktail hour was over there was no announcement, they simply turned the lights off leaving my guests to wander in the dark. I had a guest book and they put the guest book at an entrance that only the staff was using. I had flip flops for the dance floor and a thank you frame for the gift table, all of these things I found in the restroom. I had my 94 y/o grandma ask to get her good wrapped and the Maître D yelled at her that they do not "wrap food". My sisters table was set with the wrong amount of seats. Her table was short by two leaving two guests to stand. When the groom approached the maître d he told him that it was correct. Only after my husband made him count the seats did he realize. I never received my throwable bouquet although my florist swears she left if with the maître d. I can't believe that these issues meant nothing to the aquarium especially after what we paid. I will never recommend this place to anyone. My wedding was by far the best day of my life because I married the man of my dreams and had nothing to do with Atlantis banquet & events.

They did not do anything they said they would do. They did not follow through with their end of the deal. This was my wedding not something you can do over. They ruined it they did not set up the room, broke my cake topper, ruined my mothers memorial candle, threw out her rosary beads, bridal attendant and person in charge of the wedding was terrible, my reveal was in a hotel lobby because they had no back up plan, my photos are horrible, dj was a disaster, They made my family and bridal party walk in the dark with no assistance to the elders walking by them selves and when asked for assistance they were told no. Our day was suppose to be special and Atlantis did not do that at all. We are very upset and tell everyone we possibly can no to do anything with your place. We will make sure we continue to rate you every chance we get to let them know according to Jason Skinner it is acceptable to use this situation as a learning experience to teach your staff. Well thanks hope my wedding was in your learning experience but it is something we can never have again and we waited 10 years to do this and you were suppose to make it special. I also plan to write as far up as I can to let everyone know that Atlantis does not keep their word and feels it is acceptable to do so. i wonder how any of you would feel if your wedding day was ruined because people did not do what they were suppose to do but got paid in full for the event.

They did not do anything they said they would do. They did not follow through with their end of the deal. This was my wedding not something you can do over. They ruined it they did not set up the room, broke my cake topper, ruined my mothers memorial candle, threw out her rosary beads, bridal attendant and person in charge of the wedding was terrible, my reveal was in a hotel lobby because they had no back up plan, my photos are horrible, dj was a disaster, They made my family and bridal party walk in the dark with no assistance to the elders walking by them selves and when asked for assistance they were told no. Our day was suppose to be special and Atlantis did not do that at all. We are very upset and tell everyone we possibly can no to do anything with your place. We will make sure we continue to rate you every chance we get to let them know according to Jason Skinner it is acceptable to use this situation as a learning experience to teach your staff.
