There is only one place to get married in NJ - The Crystal Plaza. My husband and I had our ceremony and reception at the CP this past Saturday, September 6. After a very mild summer, it was probably the most humid day of 2014. Ideally, we would have preferred to be married outside, however, the weather was just far too uncomfortable to do so. The staff at CP was beyond accommodating during this decision process. They had both the indoor ceremony set up, as well as the outdoor, and allowed us to choose where we wanted to have it a half hour prior to call time. During the outdoor photos, our guest were kept cool with water bottles, cold towels, and my husband and I were treated like royalty. Fast forward to the ceremony - absolutely beautiful. All went smoothly - Kevin our maitre de is the best. We wanted to take him home with us, honestly! He kept us calm and comfortable throughout the entire day. As the bride and groom, EVERYTHING was taken care of for us. Let me repeat - we were treated as royalty! During the reception, I was dancing, and one of the staff noticed I was fanning myself off. She appeared out of no where with a glass of cold water, as well as a cold towel so that I could cool off. Amazing. All of our guests commented on how wonderful the staff and service was on this day. Friends traveled from St. Louis with an infant, and I was informed the day after the wedding that CP's staff did everything to ensure that the infant and parents were comfortable throughout the day...
The Venue: Absolutely breathtaking. The place is magnificent from top to bottom.
The Food: Not sure where to begin - everything was delicious. The presentation was phenomenal and all of our guests raved about EVERYTHING! The kitchen even sent my husband and i home with TRAYS of food afterwards. The Staff: Remarkable. My bridal attendants helped me dress, bustle, brought us food and drinks all day long.. Everyone was polite, courteous and professional. One word: Amazing.

We are so happy we chose Crystal Plaza! Words can not describe the wedding experience we had: it was the world's finest first class affair. It has been more than a month since we were married there but our families, friends, guests who flew from​ all over​ the world​ still​ can not stop talking about it. The service, food, decor, drinks, everything was simply amazing​!​ When I first saw the venue I fell in love with it​s​ elegant and romantic French d​ecor​ but I had no idea how their professionalism and menu would ​simply ​blow me away. Our wedding was a mix of Russian, Jewish and American traditions. It mean​t ​it ha​d​ to have abundance of food, drinks and it had t​o​​​​​ be very classy. Our cocktail hour included sushi, lobster, raw bar, duck, lamb, martini bar made of ice sculptures​ and much more​. ​Crystal Plaza also incorporated Russian appetizers including caviar at the tables. They really ​went ​an extra mile and ma​de​ ​our wedding an exclusive and​ elegant affair. ​Our​ ​M​aitre -D, ​​Nella​,​​ ​was ​incredible not only the day of the wedding but also during the planning process. She understood exactly what we were looking for in our special day and made our wedding everything we have ever dreamed of. On the day​ of the wedding​ I had the ​help of Lindsay who ​was with me the entire evening and made sure​ my hair​,​ make up and dress were perfect - ​I ​felt like a princess! We had our ceremony in their outside garden - it was truly magical. ​Our guests say it was the most beautiful ​wedding ​with the most ​delicious ​food​, the most attentive service​ and simply the best wedding they ​have ever ​attended. I will highly recommend Crystal Plaz​a - ​ you will have the most exquisite wedding and please invite me as I want to be a guest ​at the Crystal Plaza.

We had our daughters wedding at the Crystal Plaza Friday Sept. 5th , WOW, WOW, WOW! Words cannot describe the Fairytale wedding they gave her. The food was out of this world! Our guests cannot stop talking about how amazing the selection as well as the quality of food was. Everyone compared it to dinning at a 5 star restaurant. The service was impeccable! Nella, Marco, Leslie, Max Janoff, and Eric at the front desk are all so professional and without a doubt the best in the business. Every little detail was attended to without even asking them to. They all went above and beyond to make sure not only the bride and groom were taken care of, but also their family members and guests. On Friday it was very hot and the Crystal Plaza made sure there was ice cold water outside near the ceremony for the guests and even had ice cold towels for the bride, groom and bridal party all day and night as needed. The night would not have been the same without Nella who was our Maitre'd. Who else would tell the groom to text her everyone's drink order when the bridal party was on the way to the Crystal from taking photos at the park . When the bridal party arrived, Nella had everyone's drinks and a selection of food waiting for the bridal party and the immediate family. She was absolutely unbelievably helpful and made the night run so smoothly. Leslie was our bridal attendant and gave her total attention to the bride the entire night and attended to all of her needs. Marco made sure that our entire family and guests always had exactly what they wanted. Even Eric at the front desk was so helpful throughout the months of planning . Max Janoff also made sure that all our needs were met on Friday evening. Words cannot describe how pleased and happy we were that we had our daughters wedding at the Crystal Plaza. EVERYTHING WAS ABSOLUTELY PERFECT! Thank You again to the Entire Crystal Plaza staff and to the Owner Allan Janoff who made all our Daughters Dreams Come True.

My Daughter got married at the Crystal Plaza 3 weeks ago. The place is absolutely beautiful and food is superb. The service is so wonderful I can't even begin to tell you. My husband and I got a personal tour of both the smorgasbord and the dessert buffet. A host brought things to the table for us, so we didn't have to carry several plates. We really got personal attention and all of our guest were accommodated, no matter what they needed. The bridal attendant was wonderful, she fixed some of the bridesmaids hair. She helped my daughter in everyway anything she needed. They e gave us (me, my daughter and the goom's mom) flip flops at the end of the evening and even put them on our feet. Everything was perfect. I have never seen a dessert display quite like the one we had at the Crystal Plaza, our guests are still talking about it. Everything was first quality, the meats the and the seafood were all very fresh and delicious. I would definitely recommend this Venue for your wedding . I hope I get invited to another wedding at the Crystal Plaza, because it was so great.

I don't even know where to begin.

We began working with Fred in April 2013. He was very responsive from the get go with my random email questions and even let us come in with both set of parents to show them the venue. About a month before the wedding, Fred left and we began working with Marco. The transition was seamless. Marco was just as responsive and accommodating. They're procedures in payments, picking the menu, dropping off decorations are easy to understand and follow.

The day of service blew my mind away. The person that completely stands out in my mind is Leslie, one of our two personal assistants (not to knock the other personal assistant---everyone was amazing that night, but Leslie really stole my heart when she was guiding me through the photograph session). She was absolutely wonderful--from keeping my lipstick fresh to making sure we were properly fed. I literally had no idea what to expect that day and she literally guided me the entire time.

They don't offer a tasting prior to picking the menu, but the food was divine. They also made sure to pull me and my husband away so that we had some time to ourselves and to eat. During the reception, we had small plates of every entree offering. It was all delicious.

In summary, amazing. I remember having wedding nightmares up to the wedding not quite understanding how everything was going to mesh and work out, but the staff at Crystal Plaza makes it happen.

My daughter's wedding was this past Saturday, August 16th. It was better than perfect. From our initial meeting, to follow-up meetings to the actual event we were treated like gold. Quite simply all 230+ guests said it was not only the best wedding they ever attended but also the best wedding they'll ever attend. From Alan to Nella (the greatest maître de ever) to Max, Leslie, Marco, Mikhail and Vinny (I apologize if I missed anyone) they made it perfect. The food, the service, the gorgeous venue was impeccable. Everyone couldn't believe how great the staff was and that everything they ate was the best they ever had. The Crystal Plaza also gave us the best recommendations on other vendors including Melissa (the best) at Debbie's Designs who were beyond incredible with all the floral arrangements, the photographer Frank Ammaccapane (and Pedro) from Natural Expressions... Incredible, from the unbelievable videographer Sharrone from Majestic Creative/Fiori Films, the greatest DJ's Rod, Dean and Larry Gold from Unique Musique who had every on the dance floor from the start at 8PM until the end at 1:30AM, Broadway Elite the wonderful Limo service that included the party bus and the Rolls Royce (great job by both drivers), the Westminster Hotel which handled our huge crew without a hitch including breakfast on Sunday morning, and finally St. Philomena's Church who allowed our Pastor to do the ceremony at their church. There, I gave you the blueprint for the perfect wedding. But it all started and ended with the Crystal Plaza. There is no need to look any further than the Crystal Plaza for the wedding of your dreams.

My Husband and I had our wedding at the Crystal Plaza on July 20 <3 I cannot say enough amazing things about this place and the wonderful people who work here! It has been two and a half weeks since our wedding and our friends and family are still telling us it was the best wedding they have ever been to! After we were engaged, we started looking at venues right away. We saw a few places before coming to the CP and weren't thrilled with any of them. We met with Allan, who helped us through the whole process of the wedding. From the moment we stepped foot in the Crystal Plaza we were blown away. Everyone was so professional and friendly. Every inch of the building is beautiful! The Ball Room and the outdoor ceremony area are absolutely beautiful! Allan helped us pick out our menu (which I am getting hungry thinking about!) and blew us away with the cocktail hour. Any time I had a question about anything or needed help with something, he would get back to us so quickly. It was really amazing working with someone who obviously loves what they do and genuinely cares about the couples and making their day special. Our butlers and maître d's were on top of EVERY detail and made sure that every part of our ceremony and reception was flawless. Our whole bridal party was treated like Kings and Queens. The butlers literally knew what we needed before we even could have thought about it. They came to us with cold towels if we looked hot, they made sure we ate, and really made every minute of that day enjoyable. I can't say enough amazing things about The Crystal Plaza. I wish we could have our wedding again because it was perfect!

Our daughter's wedding was this past Saturday evening at Crystal Plaza and it was outstanding! The attention that the staff gives to everyone and everything was impeccable. We were able to have the ceremony outside in the most gorgeous setting and our family and friends have not stopped raving about everything. The food, the setting, the staff cannot be topped! We knew that the moment we arrived in the afternoon at Crystal Plaza, that as parents of the bride, we would not have to worry about one little thing. I don't know of any other place that would give you peace of mind, that your event will be outstanding! Thanks Crystal Plaza for everything!

Crystal Plaza by far exceeded our expectations for our wedding on July 11, 2014! When deciding in picking a venue, our number one priority was for the food to be out of this world. After reading many reviews, Crystal Plaza was our first choice venue to explore. When we met with Barry during our initial appointment, we immediately fell in love. The level of service throughout the entire planning process was above and beyond. Every staff member at the Crystal Plaza is amazing and we couldn’t be happier with our choice. Our cocktail hour, main dinner, Viennese table, and food truck was out of this world. Throughout the night, our guests were coming up to us complimenting on how unbelievable the food was. It is now 2 weeks later and we are still getting compliments. In addition, I have to especially thank my bridal attendant Lesile who was absolutely amazing! From the second we arrived at the Crystal Plaza, Lesile was by my side. Once arriving in the bridal suite, to my disappointment I noticed that from the humidity the curls in my hair were coming out. Lesile immediately told me to sit down and came back moments later with 2 curling irons and hairspray. She curled all of my hair again to make it look perfect. I was incredibly grateful as I had many more pictures to take. Throughout the night Lesile would curl my hair to perfection, touch up my makeup, and bustle my dress.

Crystal Plaza by far exceeded our expectations for our wedding on July 11, 2014! When deciding in picking a venue, our number one priority was for the food to be out of this world. After reading many reviews, Crystal Plaza was our first choice venue to explore. When we met with Barry during our initial appointment, we immediately fell in love. The level of service throughout the entire planning process was above and beyond. Every staff member at the Crystal Plaza is amazing and we couldn’t be happier with our choice. Our cocktail hour, main dinner, Viennese table, and food truck was out of this world. Throughout the night, our guests were coming up to us complimenting on how unbelievable the food was. It is now 2 weeks later and we are still getting compliments. In addition, I have to especially thank my bridal attendant Lesile who was absolutely amazing! From the second we arrived at the Crystal Plaza, Lesile was by my side. Once arriving in the bridal suite, to my disappointment I noticed that from the humidity the curls in my hair were coming out. Lesile immediately told me to sit down and came back moments later with 2 curling irons and hairspray. She curled all of my hair again to make it look perfect. I was incredibly grateful as I had many more pictures to take. Throughout the night Lesile would curl my hair to perfection, touch up my makeup, and bustle my dress. In addition, throughout the night she would come with cold towels to pat down both my husband and I anytime we were hot after dancing. Both Nella and Kevin were also checking in with us throughout the night to ensure everything was running smoothly. Crystal Plaza by far exceeded our expectations and helped make it our fairytale wedding.

If you want to get the royal treatment, get married at the Crystal Plaza! From start to finish, my experience at the Crystal Plaza was amazing. Barry, Nella, Kevin, Marco, Shay, Mikail, and every person at the Crystal Plaza went above and beyond to make sure our day was flawless. Barry is a pleasure to work with. He helped us plan the entire event and always responded to any questions or emails I had immediately. Nella and Kevin made sure our wedding went smoothly and treated my family like gold! My mom is still talking about the treatment they received throughout the night. Our attendants, Shay and Mikail, were there for every little thing my husband and I needed throughout the night. Mikail would not rest until we had every food from the cocktail hour, and Shay was so sweet and attentive. She was even ready to reapply my lip gloss at all the right moments! I didn’t have to worry about one thing; our needs were constantly anticipated and met, not to mention to a standard that exceeded our (very high) expectations. Beyond the amazing service you receive and great people you work with, the food was AMAZING, and plentiful! Everyone knows that food is one of the most important parts of a wedding, and this food is out of this world! Everyone is STILL raving about the fantastic cocktail hour, delicious meals, and over-the-top Viennese hour! Several guests described the abundant desserts as “heaven”, and because my husband and I were too busy celebrating to go to each station, the servers made sure to have each and every dessert waiting for us at our sweetheart table! I could endlessly praise the Crystal Plaza, but suffice it to say that if you choose this venue for your wedding, you will not only impress your guests, but you will get treated better than you could ever imagine! Getting married at the Crystal Plaza was the absolute best decision we made because once you choose this venue, you know your wedding will be lavish, memorable, and truly perfect!

Best venue ever!! This place is top notch! There is no other place like it! I had the most unbelievable experience as a bride. They treated me like a princess the day of and made sure that my family and I were happy and we were attended to in every way throughout the day. They listened to everything I wanted with the planning and went above and beyond their role. The staff was outstanding and professional and delightful. The food is beyond delicious and there is not a bad meal in this place. If you are looking at other places.. Don't even bother.. The other places won't even compare! The crystal plaza is the best of the best and after having many events here In the past as well there is no place like the Crystal Plaza!

On our first trip venue hunting, I went with my fiance, mom, mother in law and father in law to see a place (I won't name it) I was sure I wanted to have my wedding. We got there and I was so disappointed I just wanted to go home. My father in law, who is always full of ideas, said he knew a place but had not been there in years. Admittedly, I rolled my eyes. However, when we got there my heart stopped. Could this be it?

We pulled into the Crystal Plaza and walked in. I quickly apologized to the gentleman helping to set up for an event for coming unannounced and assuring him I only wanted to make an appointment for a future date. In the midst of all that was going on, he was warm and inviting and gave us a tour. That was my first memory of Fred Fogg. As he took us around I just knew that this had to be it, but at the same time I felt the sinking feeling that when he gave us prices he was going to nickle and dime us like the previous location. Instead, Fred named the price and did not try to sell us this or that. I walked out of there knowing that was where we would have our wedding.

A year and a half later, we did. It was truly the most magical experience. I never had to worry about a single thing. Everything was more than we hoped for, more than we thought, and more than we could ever adequately express. The place is beyond beautiful, the staff is incredible and the food is out of this world. We felt like complete royalty as did all of our guests. If I were the richest person in the world, I would still have my event at the Crystal Plaza. Just thinking about all that they did for us gives me chills.

i know every bride thinks their wedding was the best.... and i am no different!
the venue was the splurge for us.....but i'd rather spend the money on a top venue to ensure the food and service is perfect. AND IT WAS!!! Fred was a pleasure to work with and was always making sure my paranoid mind was at ease. I met Kevin a few days before my wedding and he was my maitre'd. Kevin was so on top of every detail making suggestions along the way. Then i met my bridal attendant Leslie on the wedding day. That day, I had the dream team. kevin is such a calming person which is very needed on a hectic day like this. he walkie talkied other staff to locate family members, bridal party, etcc... he controlled the flow of the entire day which is great because the day/night goes by so fast you have no idea whats going on. Leslie sewed one of my bridesmaid's dress, sewed my dress bc it puckered by the sweetheart neckline, kept me hydrated, held my dress, fed me, and ON AND ON....
i've attended many weddings and the level of service exceeds anywhere else. i read about this dream team in other people's reviews.... but they're even better in person! awesome venue, delicious food, accompanied by a superb staff.

My husband and I got married at the Crystal Plaza on May 30, 2014 and we couldn't happier with our choice to get married and have our reception there. The level of service they provide is something I've never experienced before. The attentiveness of the staff was impeccable. Along with the maitre d's, my husband and I each had an assistant who was with us the entire night catering to our every need. The venue itself is absolutely beautiful. We held our ceremony in their beautiful garden surrounded by all kinds of flowers and greenery. The cocktail hour had more food than I've ever seen! Tons of different stations along with passed hor d'ourves. Although everyone was full from the cocktail hour, people made room for their well-presented dinners. They have these new plates that provide 5 built in cups on the side that have different types of dippings and sides, so awesome! The servers also come around and ask if you'd like to try a second entree as well, like come on! Everyone is served wedding cake along with 2 other plated dessert options. We also opted to pay extra for the servers to pass out jello shots, mini milkshakes, fried oreos, etc. while everyone was on the dance floor, which was a huge hit! Almost every single one of my guests told me our wedding was the best they've ever been to, and I may be biased, but I agree! The venue is gorgeous, the food delicious, and most importantly, they truly treated us like royalty. Best night of our lives at the Crystal Plaza!

Allan and his team at the Crystal Plaza not only made our special day a celebration we would never forget, but they made our wedding a Fairy Tale! Every detail was perfect, and they did everything they could to make sure things were the way we liked it. The maître d' made sure everything went perfectly and we got in all the things we wanted to do. Also, my bridal attendant, Leslie, was amazing. She never left my side and made sure I was comfortable and that my make up and hair always looked perfect. My husband and I never had an empty glass! Oh, and did I mention how amazing the food was ?! Our guests could not stop talking about how great everything was. They really now how to make a bride feel like a princess!

As the bride, I would not have chosen any other venue. Crystal Plaza is very classy and the ambiance is exceptional. I must say the staff was AMAZING! My bridal attendant Leslie was awesome!! She did EVERYTHING for me. She did not allow me to lift a finger and even fed me! Marco, my Maitre D', was also over the top. He made sure that everything went smoothly and made sure I was happy with everything. I really could not have asked for more. ALL my guests commented on how remarkable the food was, especially the cocktail hour! You will not regret having your wedding here! Much THANKS to Barry and his staff. You all were wonderful!!!

My daughters wedding was at Crystal Plaza on 5/3/14. What a fabulous experience! I don't have to write much because everything that is written and I read in all the prior reviews was right on target. The food was delicious, the staff was UNBELIEVABLE and the service was like nothing I have ever experienced before. All the guests are still talking about all three! We planned with Barry, who was always accommodating and always returned emails right away. He made the wedding planning experience a wonderful, easy and stressless process. Nella was our maitred...words can't expereince what a terrific job she did...she gave my daughter the wedding of a lifetime. She went above and beyond to make this night great for all. The cocktail hour was something we had hoped for but far exceeded my wildest dreams! The bride and groom attendants, Leslie and Miquel, were so attentive and wonderful..they took care of every little detail and were one step ahead every step of the way. The whole night was magical and will never be forgotten. Crystal Plaza takes pride in each and every affair that they do and they make you feel like your affair is the most important!!!

There are no words to describe how absolutely AMAZING and FABULOUS my wedding was at Crystal Plaza!!!! From the the second we stepped in to look at the venue last year to the actual wedding day 4/17/14 they treated us like royalty. Every staff member, from the valet guys...front desk reception to the sales people, everyone is so professional and responsive. Kevin Mohammed was our maitre'd...TOP NOTCH service. He was the absolute BEST! Any email or phone call I made to him, he was able to quickly respond. He helped is choose a menu that our guests are still raving about. This place is just unbelievable. You will not get this service at any other venue.
My personal attendant, Leslie, was God sent! She was on top of everything little detail. She busseled my dress in less than 5 minutes and it was better than when my mother practiced it.
She made sure I ate during cocktail hour...cutting my food in small pieces so I could quickly eat and still mingle with my guests. She always made sure I had a drink in my hand. She also patted my down with cold towels throughout the night while I was dancing on the dance floor.
DO NOT hesitate to book Crystal Plaza for your event! TRUST ME!! Ask for Kevin Mohammed and ask for Leslie to be your personal attendant.
I've only been married 2 weeks and can not wait to plan our 10th anniversary party at Crystal Plaza!!!

I am still coming off of a "perfect wedding high" and up to this point haven't been able to fully express the true beauty which was my wedding day. Words do no justice as to what The Crystal Plaza blessed me with. I owe the most magical day of my life to Nella. I was able to breathe through each moment of my day, truly embrace each dance and each detail without stress or worry. From the moment I met Nella..standing on the circular dance floor surrounded by crystal mirrors, ornate chandeliers, trying to catch my breath since I was so captured by the moment and realizing this was my place…she took me under her wing and made me hers. She grasped my vision and made it a reality. Nella, our Maître D Marco, Crystal Plaza owner Mr. Janoff and entire Crystal Plaza family had a special touch of compassion that made me feel I was the most important person to them and my event was their own. Guests are still commenting on the delectable food. Everything was scrumptious and the presentation of the courses unreal. My guests couldn't get over the white glove service and were in awe of waiters at each table taking drink orders and removing fresh lobster from their shells in my cocktail hour. The Crystal Plaza Bakery is something to envy. Glass display cases of Italian pastries and croissants, trays of brownies and French macaroons, hanging donuts and bagels. Guests indulged in as many treats as they craved and had them wrapped in personalized boxes. We received rave reviews, praising the treats my guests enjoyed during the ride home and for breakfast the next morning. My bridal consultant reapplied my lipstick, fluffed my dress and held a straw while I sipped water, yet she was unobtrusive. The staff cooled my husband, my parents and I off with cold compresses throughout the evening so we wouldn't look less than perfect in our pictures. Every bride DESERVES to have a wedding at Crystal Plaza. Crystal Plaza is all class and in an exquisite league of their own. Thank you!!

We got married at the Crystal Plaza this past March - from the second we looked at the venue, I knew it was where I needed to get married. It's gorgeous, classic, and the staff is so professional and warm. Our wedding was truly perfect - I could not have asked for a more incredible and memorable night.
Even before our wedding during the stressful few months prior, our maître d/wedding coordinator, Marco, was SO attentive, professional, and accessible. It was easy to tell he was willing to do ANTHING to make sure we were at ease and were happy with everything. Marco was so easy to communicate with via email - he really made the wedding planning process a pleasure. Barry, who we initially met with at the Crystal Plaza, made us feel like we were in great hands - it was clear the entire staff cared so much about our happiness and the happiness of the guests as well.
The night of our wedding, the Crystal Plaza staff did everything to make us feel at home and make everything perfect from the minute we arrived. The service is IMPECCABLE. My bridal attendant, Leslie, was the sweetest, most attentive woman - she was there for me every second I needed, from giving me lip gloss, handing me a glass of water, to fixing my dress. She, Marco, and the rest of the staff even made sure we took a step back at our wedding to really "take it all in" and enjoy our special night.
Now on to the actual wedding - literally everything was perfect. Guests were raving all night (and are still raving!) about the food (the lamb chops!!!!), the service, and the beauty of Crystal Plaza. I couldn't have imagined getting married anywhere else. Crystal Plaza makes you truly feel like a special bride and goes above and beyond to make the night perfect. All the staff members worked really well with our florist, our band, our photographer and videographer as well - they are so professional and good at what they do. I would recommend Crystal Plaza to anyone getting married. THANK YOU!

She, Marco, and the rest of the staff even made sure we took a step back at our wedding to really "take it all in" and enjoy our special night.
Now on to the actual wedding - literally everything was perfect. Guests were raving all night (and are still raving!) about the food (the lamb chops!!!!), the service, and the beauty of Crystal Plaza. I couldn't have imagined getting married anywhere else. Crystal Plaza makes you truly feel like a special bride and goes above and beyond to make the night perfect. All the staff members worked really well with our florist, our band, our photographer and videographer as well - they are so professional and good at what they do. I would recommend Crystal Plaza to anyone getting married. THANK YOU! Read less

I cannot express in words how AMAZING this venue is. My wedding was last night, and the buzz about my wedding is unreal. Barry helped us in the beginning of our process, and was truly responsive with my emails and need! Marco is wonderful and organized everything perfectly. He made sure my ceremony went smoothly, that everyone knew how and when to walk, and kept everyone calm and relaxed. My bridal attendants were constantly holding the train of my dress, refilling our drinks, even toweled me off when I was overheating on the middle of the dance floor. My main bridal attendant, fixed my lip gloss every ten minutes, and took a stain out of my dress before I could even panic. The food is simply amazing. No guest will leave hungry! The cocktail hour alone is huge! The dinners were great, and if someone didnt like their meal, they could order a different one. The tables in the reception had waiters that brought your drinks to you. I did not go to the bar once! My family, husband, and friends had such a wonderful night of drinking, dancing and eating. Thanks to the Crystal Plaza, I can honestly say I had the magical wedding every girl dreams of! Thank you!!

Today is my 1 Month Anniversary from my February 21st wedding and I couldnt be happier! As we look back at our wedding day Crystal Plaza was the perfect place to start our lives together. Lets start from the beginning. We visited Crystal Plaza about a year and a half ago and it was love at first sight. The mansion is beautiful from the outside and breathtaking from the inside. The cocktail room has a library feel to it, cozy and familiar, as if you were home. Which it does feel like because you have the whole place to yourself. The fireplace adds that touch of elegance. When we saw the ballroom I whispered to my then fiance "this is the one." The ballroom is elegent and beautiful. We booked with Barry who helped us in the beginning stages of our process until Marco took over. Marco handled all my questions and always responded to my emails in record time. When it came time to choose our menu he was very helpful in guiding us through every detail. The service is exceptional! On the day of, I had Marco making sure things went smoothly and my bridal attendent Leslie who was outstanding. She made sure I ate, never had an empty glass and took care of all my girls. She even sewed up my bustle when I was worried I would trip during our first dance and curled my bridesmaids hair when it got too flat!! At one point I was fanning myself from all the dancing, and there was Leslie, with a cold towel to cool me down. I am still getting compliments of how wonderful everything turned out including how delicious the food was. I really hope someone I know gets married there soon so I can go back and enjoy it all over again. They really created memories that I will cherish forever! Thank you Crystal Plaza for making my dream wedding come true!

My daughter got married at Crystal plaza last Sunday. It was an incredible experience from the beginning to end. Marco was extremely responsive to all our requests and emails and made everything to ran smoothly and perfectly. Everybody was very helpful and friendly, helping us to carry stuff in, making sure family members are comfortable. Leslie and Mikael ( bride and groom attendants) were super nice. Leslie followed my daughter, re curling her hair, arranging her dress making her looks her best through the whole wedding. Food was incredible ( We used in-house glatt kosher caterer Alpine Glatt) appetizers, action stations, main dishes - everything was plentiful and delicious. All our stuff and leftover food was neatly packed and sent with us after the wedding. Hall is stunningly beautiful and tastefully decorated. I hope I can make more weddings at Crystal plaza

I was married on New Years Eve - just about a month ago. I'll start by saying, I did not want to get married in New Jersey. I'm a Philadelphia girl and always imagined I'd get married there. Due to scheduling and certain needs for my grooms family, we looked at the Crystal Plaza to review their catering options as a possibility to bring them to Philadelphia. Upon arrival at the Crystal Plaza, just two weeks after we were engaged, we entered the CP and I was blown away. The decor, the feel, the ambiance, the level of service I knew we were being shown just for a meeting - I was really taken. We had our meeting with Allan, who was absolutely outstanding who eventually had us looking around the venue. Although I was torn that evening, we decided to book the Crystal Plaza for the ease of location, the quality of food, and the promise that our affair would be top notch. From that moment, every single meeting we had with Allan, or Nella (who was my planner/attendant and LIFE SAVER) was handled with the utmost professionalism, they assisted with every detail, were organized, got everything we'd asked for and I knew very quickly. I'd made the right decision. We had 10 months to plan and along the way, Nella was a dream. Menu, schedule, preparation, everything was perfect. My wedding day was chaotic, lots of family, a tight schedule but the staff of the Crystal Plaza was the BEST I've ever seen at a venue. Leslie catered to me the ENTIRE day - replenishing my lipgloss when it wore thin, keeping me calm while guests arrived, getting me cold towels when I was sweating, or even fixing my dress when we realized the hem was a tad too long...They had their eyes on me and my husband the ENTIRE DAY. They catered to us and handled every single detail, I didn't have to worry about a SINGLE THING. Our guests RAVED about the service, the AMAZING food and the Crystal Plaza made our wedding day ABSOLUTELY perfect. I am forever grateful to them for everything! Book your wedding here! :)

First and foremost, the food and service were out of this world. We used Crystal Plaza's in-house kosher caterer (Alpine), and to this day, I have neither had better food at a wedding or seen a bigger variety. Weeks after the wedding, people kept coming up to me to tell me how amazing the food and service were. One person said she couldn't even finish her drink without a waiter bringing her a new one! The food and service exceeded our every expectation, and the sheer size of our cake was another fantastic surprise. Our maitre d' team - Marco and Kevin - were excellent and helped the day go by seamlessly. I didn't even know there was going to be a bridal attendant (Shea) but now looking back I don't know what I would have done without her. Shea was phenomenal! She took care of refreshing my makeup throughout the night, finding people for pictures, and anticipated anything that was needed before it could be asked for. A major thanks to the entire Crystal Plaza team for all of their work in making our wedding truly spectacular!

Fred, Marco, Leslie and all the staff created a fantasy wedding for our daughter. No detail was missed. Food was phenomenal, service was impeccable. Awesome garden setting for ceremony. To say they exceeded our expectations in an understatement. Would give them 10 stars if possible! Thank you all for an outstanding "over the top" affair. To sum it up our daughter said "I expected my wedding would be nice but it was sooo beyond anything I could have dreamed." All the guests were totally "blown out of the water".

The Crystal Plaza provided a fairy tale wedding for us!!! Words can't even express how pleased we were with the service, the food, the ambiance, and overall experience. The grounds and and the detailed decor inside are absolutely gorgeous. Everyone raved about our food. There were so many delicious stations during cocktail hour, the main course came with 4 sides and was beautifully presented, and the Viennese hour was a wow factor for everyone!
Our maitre D Kevin was absolutely amazing throughout the whole process. He was so helpful in our planning and took time with us before the big day to go over every little detail. He had great suggestions for us to make our reception personalized. He made sure to greet us and our wedding party with drinks and food while we took pictures before cocktail hour. His extensive knowledge and professionalism put me at ease that the night would go smooth. I was so happy and relieved to be able to put everything in his hands and just fully enjoy my night!
My bridal attendant Leslie was more than anything I could ask for! She was so attentive and took care of all my needs. If my hair was messy, she'd put it in place, when my dress needed to be bussled, she was there, whenever I needed to reapply lip gloss, she took care of it. She even cooled me down with cool washcloths on the dance floor.
Our butler Marco was so helpful. He ensured the groom had his jacket on when needed, and made sure there was always a fresh drink in hand.
We are so thankful for our unforgettable, magical night at the Crystal Plaza!

We can't begin to describe the professionalism of the entire staff of The Crystal Plaza in Livingston, NJ. Nella was exceptional in her care of Lindsey (the Bride) and Adrian (the Groom) as well as the entire wedding party - - - she even fed us when we were forgetting to eat! Her staff continually monitored what Lindsey and Adrian needed from a glass of water to a curling iron and hair spray. Kevin was also very attentive to each wedding party member.
The food was exceptional - from the Chataubriand right thru dessert - loved every bite!
Our guests couldn't stop bragging about the quality of the food!
Thank you for a memorable day - it was like a fairy tale!

Our wedding reception at the Crystal Plaza was absolutely perfect. From our initial visit, we knew that we wanted to use this venue. We booked with Fred Fogg in June of 2012 for our September 2013 wedding. Our maitre'd Nella was extremely professional, and made our evening run so smoothly. Her suggestions ranged from the transition of cake cutting to father/daughter mother/son dances, to having one large bar in the main room so that guests could mingle while they waited for drinks, both of which were appreciated. My bridal attendant Leslie was amazing, and even was able to sew my bustle back up after it had fallen. She made sure I was actually able to eat, and was so attentive, from fetching my flat shoes so I could dance, to carrying my lip gloss and reapplying for me before I could even ask. My husband's attendant also did a very good job seeing to his every need, and even remembered to have him put his jacket back on for the cake cutting. When we were reviewing our final menu with Fred, he asked if he could surprise us for dessert - the guests are still raving about what was served! Each guest received a nine-piece platter of different desserts, all of which were outstanding. Another fun surprise was the ice sculpture of our monogram in the cocktail hour room - we couldn't believe it when we saw it! The Crystal Plaza really contributed to making our wedding day the best day of our lives, and I would recommend them to anyone looking for an outstanding wedding reception venue.

From the first time we met with Allan, the owner of the Crystal Plaza, we knew we wanted to get married there. He was professional, responsive, and made the decision making and planning process a breeze. They truly gave us the most amazing wedding day we could have EVER imagined. Everything was absolutely perfect.

I can't express enough what a wonderful team they have there. While everyone was extremely professional and accommodating, Marco and Leslie are top notch. They were not only there for us all day, but fun to be around. People were so impressed at the level of attentiveness we received from them.

People raved about the venue, the food, the service, and everything in between. As you can imagine, getting married is very expensive- but I heard many people say that no price tag could be put on our wedding because it was perfect and worth every penny. I totally agree! At the Crystal Plaza, you get what you pay for- PERFECTION!

I had my wedding at Crystal Plaza this past weekend, August 31, 2013. I booked with Barry. I do not have enough good things to say about this venue.
The food was absolutely excellent, YUMMY!... and there was so much of it!!! A lot of our guests thought the cocktail hour was the entire meal. The servers were great. The presentation of the main course was also wonderful. It came in almost like a artists palate with a taste of each different side dish. The dessert tables (Viennese) was ridiculous, we had no idea what to expect when we had ordered it. There were probably at least 10 stations all with fabulous desserts. I had at least a dozen people come up to me during the wedding saying that this was the best wedding they had ever been to. Another dozen saw me, and proceeded to feed me with food that I simply had to try!
The staff was also wonderful. Marco was our maître d'. You can tell he was experienced. He made the day flow very well, and lead the practice ceremony. He also coordinated all of the vendors.
Shay was my personal assistant for the day. OMG, this girl was FABULOUS!!! I would take one sip from my drink and she would be bringing me a new one. She held onto my lip gloss, and made sure I was set for my pictures. She followed me around and fluffed my dress each time I sat down. I actually hired my hairstylist to touch up my hair after the ceremony.... Little did I know Shay came with her own curling iron and did my hair!!! She was attentive to every need!!! Throughout my day people came over asking how I found such a great wedding planner, and could not believe that she came from the venue.
As I said, I do not have enough good things to say about this venue, and from a picky bride, that's saying a lot.
I want to thank everyone from the Crystal Plaza for such an amazing day. Once we got to the venue it was completely stress free and went smoothly!

Words cannot begin to describe how perfect my wedding was and I have the Crystal Plaza to thank for this. They were incredible and amazing. You felt like you were family when you were there and that's because that's how we were treated: like family. We had Marco as our maitre'd and he did a phenomenal job organizing everything for our wedding. He put me and my husband at ease, we knew our wedding was in great hands with him. Leslie saved me at my wedding, she is a God send. She was always next to me helping fix my hair, make up, fixing my dress for pictures and even made my bustle for my wedding dress! I would encourage anybody and everybody to have their wedding at the Crystal Plaza. Best decision I made for my wedding was booking them.

We had Marco as our maitre'd and he did a phenomenal job organizing everything for our wedding. He put me and my husband at ease, we knew our wedding was in great hands with him. Leslie saved me at my wedding, she is a God send. She was always next to me helping fix my hair, make up, fixing my dress for pictures and even made my bustle for my wedding dress! I would encourage anybody and everybody to have their wedding at the Crystal Plaza. Best decision I made for my wedding was booking them. Read less

My wedding was magical. Every one of our guests had a wonderful time. They loved the Crystal Plaza as much as we did. I was so frazzled by all the chaos from the day, but as soon as I arrived at the Crystal Plaza, they took care of me. I felt like queen for the day. I didn't want the day to end. They took care of all my needs and every single detail of the day. I had nothing to worry about. I had a personal assistant who followed me around, took care of all my needs and even re-curled my hair. My husband and I had the wedding of our dreams thanks to the Crystal Plaza.

I cannot thank the staff at the Crystal Plaza enough for putting together my absolute dream wedding. If I could give you 10 stars I would!! From the moment we met with Fred we knew we were in good hands. They far exceeded every expectation I had. Nella and Leslie were so amazing I can't say enough good things about them and how on point their service was. From fixing my hair to putting on my lip gloss they knew exactly what I wanted and needed without even asking them. My family and friends cannot stop raving about the food, especially the cocktail hour and how beautiful the entire night was. It was an unbelievable night and one that we will never forget!!

Crystal Plaza was the most amazing choice for our wedding ceremony & reception. The outdoor gardens & vintage inspired wedding piece was absolutely stunning & was a major part of our decision. Outdoors was a must & even though it rained 20 minutes prior to ceremony time...the staff knew how important it was for me to have it indoors. Within 15 minutes they were able to what looked like effortlessly move my wedding from inside to outdoors. My guests said it was the smoothest transition ever !! In every aspect to the tiniest detail Crystal Plaza staff had it under control. The MatriDes greeted me as if I were a part of the family from the royal palace. My hair got some raindrops & they were ready to go with a curling iron to make sure every strand was in place. Nella took care of all the coordinating details making sure everyone was happy including the bride in the groom. She shifted the whole wedding outside last minute !!!! Unbelievable service. They even made sure we had time to eat !!! Leslie another matridee made sure I had my lipgloss on, stayed hydrated & got to taste the desert !! The plaza itself is warm, romantic & the numerous gorgeous chandeliers set the perfect mood for a fairytale wedding. All my guests are still talking about how as soon as they glass was half filled, in an instant it was refilled, as soon as a plate was empty it was picked up and replaced. Which brings me to the food. From what I did get to try, spectacular. From pictures, breathtaking presentation ( Including 3 ices sculptures & a BAR MADE OUT OF ICE !! ) From guests. well lets just just say they are still raving how excellent each dish was. Cocktail was said to be an incredible hit .They provided 10 delicious stations.and made sure us girls in the bridal suite got to eat too !! They were feeding me !!! The whole feel of the place is romantic & royal. If you want to feel like a princess you must go with Crystal Plaza. EXCELLENT SERVICE, BEAUTIFUL PROPERTY, MOST DELICIOUS FOOD!

This is the best wedding venue ever!! They are professional and fabulous to work with. I love Nella and Leslie. Nella took total control and ran the wedding like clock work. Leslie dressed everyone and sewed my dress when it ripped during the party. They even took cold washcloths and wiped us down during the dancing. The food was delicious and plentiful.
Everyone said it was the best wedding they had ever been to. We all had the best time because of the staff and the wonderful service. Also we did a cocktail reception wedding which is rather new. They understood exactly the concept and executed it beautifully. It was set up like a night club with food constant throughout the night. You have never seen so much food and everything was yummy.

The Crystal Plaza and the team of people working there really know what they are doing and execute their events with precision and professionalism at a high level. Fred Fogg took the vision I had for my wedding and made it a reality beyond my wildest dreams. His team, especially Nella and Leslie, are fantastic, while running a tight ship attending to ALL of the details. Friends and family have been raving that they have never been to such an event and call it the "wedding of the century!" The food was outstanding and endless. The service was beyond expectations as they anticipate your every need during the wedding and take care of everything, allowing the bride, groom, parents, bridal party to enjoy everything without worry! Thank you Crystal Plaza!!

We visited numerous venues in NJ and LI before we found out about Crystal Plaza. I knew within 10 minutes that this was going to be the place where we would have our wedding. When we first met Fred we told him we wanted to have a Russian style wedding, and he promised to make our wedding a night to remember. He made me feel at ease. A lot of other places were unable or hesitant to fulfill some of our requests. Fred (and everyone else at Crystal Plaza) lived up to that promise and fulfilled every single one of our wishes. The inside is gorgeous with chandeliers and other decorations, and the outside garden is a dream come true. The pictures in the garden and by the gazebo came out amazing! While we were taking pictures before the ceremony it was very hot, and Nella and Leslie constantly put cold towels on me and even fed me grapes to make sure I ate enough! The service was out of this world!!! Our parents were constantly being taken care of. Our guests are still talking about all the amazing food and alcohol. The Patron station was such a big hit! Our 2 major requests when we were looking for a venue were great food (and lot of it) and great alcohol (and lots of it) and that's exactly what all of our guests got! At the end of the night, after the viennese hour, we had a delicious bakery displayed and the guests were able to take anything they want with them. It was the perfect finishing touch to our amazing party! Thank you Crystal Plaza for making this a night to remember, not only for us, but for all of our guests!

I would like to preface this review by giving a brief description of the state in which my wife and I arrived at the hall. My wife and I are of Jewish, Russian decent. We decided to take pictures in several locations prior to our ceremony at the Crystal plaza. We left our house at 11 am; by the time we entered the limo to get to the hall I thought I was going to have a nervous breakdown. The wiring on my wife’s dress was coming undone, the entire bottom of the dress was black, her makeup was running, her extensions were falling out, and her sister and I were trying desperately to reassure her how gorgeous she looked while thinking how we were going to stop her from killing herself. So, we arrived at the hall; Nella, Leslie (a.k.a Marry Poppins), and Shane were waiting as though they had magically timed our arrival. Nella, seeing our expressions, asked what had happened. 10 minutes after my wife expressed her concerns through clinched teeth and watery eyes, nearly everything was resolved. Leslie fixed her hair, cleaned her dress, and fixed the wiring in half an hour. Leslie is Leonardo Di Vinci and Marry Poppins sowed into one beautiful and slightly less flamboyant women. She is everywhere exactly when she needs to be and completely unnoticed. It was a hot day and it seemed as though every 3 minutes either her or Shane were giving us some water, or patting our heads with an ice cloth. They were kind, funny, and supportive. These two angels were worth booking this hall alone. I actually ended up kissing both their hands by the end of the night. Nella is a pure perfectionist. She reminds me of a Jewish mother; she tells you were to go and what to do and for some reason you enjoy it. These three amazing women would have been enough for me, but everything else was perfect. We are forever indebted to the beautiful people who make this place home and we look forward to future celebrations at Crystal Plaza.

We cannot thank Alan, Nella, Leslie, Marco and the entire Crystal Plaza team enough for creating the wedding of our dreams. We had the time of our lives. Everything was perfect from our ceremony in the gorgeous gardens out back to the endless options at cocktail hours to the cool towels passed around on the dance floor.

The food and service at the Crystal Plaza is above and beyond any other wedding venue we have been to. The cocktail hour was filled with too many stations to count and incredible ice sculptures. Then Alan helped us create a very special and personal menu for the reception. During the entire planning process, Alan and Nella were so helpful and always gave the best advice. Everything went perfectly the night of. We must also give a huge shout out to our attendants, Leslie and Marco, who are truly the best at what they do. They even knew what we needed before we did the entire night.

We did not want the night to end so we had arranged to have an after party upstairs for an hour. The Crystal Plaza did an amazing job setting up a bar and constantly walking around breakfast foods. It was the perfect end to such unbelievable night.

We went on our honeymoon the day after the wedding and when we returned over two weeks later everyone was still raving about the food and what an amazing time they had at the Crystal.

Thank you a million times over for the best wedding night!

It's very simple: if you want the wedding of your dreams, you go with the Crystal Plaza. Simply everything about our experience was perfect. I was initially hesitant about even looking at them, because I assumed they would be way out of our price range. But the truth is, when you take into account the level of services provided, you cannot get a better value for your dollar. Crystal Plaza did everything we asked for, and more. Fred, our event planner, offered us invaluable advice about everything from timing of the ceremony to menu choices. Speaking of food, I can honestly say that the Crystal Plaza has the best food I have ever had, at a wedding or otherwise. It just cannot be matched. And coming from 2 big Italian families, the quality of food was the most important thing to us. Their cocktail hour is so amazing that our guests were surprised when they realized that there was a dinner as well! We were made to feel like royalty on our wedding day. Our bridal attendants were incomparable, and I don't know how we would have made it through the day without them. Nella, our maître d, was one of the most professional and organized people I have ever had the pleasure of working with. She made every vision and idea we had about the ceremony and reception come to life. 4 months later, our friends and families are still talking about how much they enjoyed themselves at our wedding. Go with the Crystal Plaza and I promise that you won't regret it.

THERE ARE NO WORDS THAT CAN EVER DESCRIBE HOW FLAWLESS, MAGICAL, AND EXQUISITE OUR EXPERIENCE AND WEDDING WAS AT THE CRYSTAL PLAZA! My wife and I each had our own personal attendant who fed us food and drinks constantly, curled my wife's hair, put cold refreshing compresses on our foreheads and went above and beyond with everything...thank you Leslie and Marco! The food was absolutely out of this world and honestly second to none. The cocktail hour was so much food with so many options that we didn't even need the main course! The service was impeccable. It was rare for someone to get up for a drink. It felt like everyone had their own waiter. Our guests are still raving about it! Barry and the team were absolute professionals and great to work with. The setup for the actual ceremony was beautiful and everything ran so smoothly. Till this day, and its been a month, guests are still telling us this was the best wedding they have been to and it wouldn't be true if it wasn't for the Crystal Plaza. Hands down, I would highly recommend the Crystal Plaza. They exceeded our expectations!

A lot of people are going to give you advice. If you are anything like me, you're too nervous that everyone will have a great time and that you've planned a classy enough event to correctly convey who you are that you give everyone the "nod and smile." As it turns out, I liked the Crystal Plaza from the start because they didn't offer you advice or tell you what you should be thinking about-they don't need to because they're the best. And, working with Fred, you know it, too. Flowers, the best band in the industry, a one-of -a-kind videographer, and photographer recs will be solid gold, and menu choices will be enhanced without a blink-and before you even realize that the meeting is over!

When meeting Nella, our gem of a maitre'd, a few days before the big event, I knew all my worries could rest and I could start thinking about everyone's good advice. Thanks to Nella, the best maitre'd in the business, and Leslie, the fairy godmothers of all bridal assistants, my husband and I were able to "stop and take it all in," "dance with our friends," "eat!"

Because of Nella and Leslie, my husband and I were brought every entree (5!), constantly cooled off with cold towels, and reminded-or just given-regular drinks. My lip gloss was applied and my hair fixed, all without even realizing Leslie was there! Mikail kept my parents refreshed and provided for the entire time. Even our wedding party was given snacks and drinks throughout picture taking, all without anyone asking for anything.

It's been about 2 weeks since the exquisite day, and our loved ones are still gushing. I can toss around "royalty," "class," "elegance," "care," "magical," "attentive,"and "professional," and I mean them most whole-heartedly. But, what it really all comes down to is Nella and Leslie made me feel like their family, as did all of our vendors, and that's what I'll cherish. The truest testament is that they all really did make us feel that they did for us what they would do for their own.

We held our daughter's afternoon wedding reception at the Crystal Plaza and it has taken us 2 weeks to come down from the clouds! Everything and everyone we worked with was top-notch--we can't say enough about Barry and Marco and the rest of the staff who supported us during the planning process and on the day itself. They made the entire event worry-free and offered numerous suggestions for ensuring that our timing (a mid-morning church service, followed by photo session, then the reception) went smoothly for us and for our guests. Our friends and family raved about the food, the service level and the beautiful ballroom--a work of art itself! Initially we were concerned that the venue might seem a little "over the top" for our daughter and son-in-law (who are very simple and sports-minded people!) but after touring several possible venues they were totally won over by the down-to-earth manner of the Crystal Plaza staff and how accomodating they were to their questions and needs (both live out of state, which could have--but in this case did not--complicate logistics). If we had another child to marry off, we would be back here in a heartbeat!

We had our daughter's wedding at Crystal Plaza and we were all totally thrilled. From the planning stage with Fred to the wedding itself, everyone and everything was wonderful. Marco, who was in charge of the wedding, is extremely knowledgeable and professional. He always answered any of our questions right away and did everything he could to make the wedding all we hoped it would be. His calm, warm, and friendly manner put us at ease. Leslie, my daughter's bridal assistant, is like a genie. She made us feel like royalty. She anticipated every need my daughter had and took care of it even before my daughter asked. She even hemmed my daughter's bridal gown so she could take her heels off and wear flats to dance -- on the spot!! The entire staff was amazing -- and my guests, especially the people who had never been to Crystal Plaza, could not stop raving about the food, service, and how beautiful everything was.

We went from planning on just getting a license at the courthouse to holding a full wedding on Thursday 4/25 to having the event at the Crystal Plaza on Tuesday the 30th. Monday night I went with my Fiancee and some friends to see a movie, and on Tuesday did some work and even went for ice cream two hours before the wedding. This was because Alan at Crystal Plaza was taking care of everything, even with so late notice, that there was really not much left for us to do.

Rather than the disaster it could've been in less capable hands, here are a couple of the texts, I received the next day: "I had a great time, it was such a beautiful night"; "That was the single most enjoyable evening that just happened to also be a wedding. Shania and I had a very nice time and that's a big deal."

I too hate weddings, and also being the center of attention. Incredibly this was also the nicest, most relaxed wedding I've ever been too. Our attendants, Leslie and Mikail both deserve a raise. They were fantastic, professional and personal simultaneously.

My only regret was the food. We were given a while to eat privately before joining everyone else. We could've stayed longer to eat but left early expecting to be able to continue later. I've never gotten up mid-meal as amazing as this one. Everything was so incredible, I felt like a glutton, sampling each dish on a table filled with so many incredibly delicious foods. I go out to eat a lot at some of the best restaurants in the city and the food was as good, if not better than anything else I've experienced.

I want to thank Alan for an amazing experience. It was a great note to start a marriage on, and I highly recommend you don't take a chance anywhere else.

(Alan, in exchange for this review, please save one of those fried banana pastries for me. I haven't been able to get them out of my mind since that night!)

I can't even put into words how AMAZING Crystal Plaza was for Our wedding 04/25/13. The place, food, and staff were UNBELIEVABLE and I still have people calling me telling me how great everything was. You Can't compared to other venues You get what you pay for and you cannot compare any other place to the Crystal Plaza. We worked with Nella when booking the wedding and on the day of the wedding, I was with Leslie SHE'S IS AMAZING!!!!!!! the whole night. They were the absolute BEST!!!! Whatever you needed, they were there for you. They were so professional, kind, and did everything and anything to make our day perfect. I cannot thank them enough for everything. Overall, there is not one thing I could complain about. Crystal Plaza is by far the best wedding venue in NJ!! Thank you to everyone for making me and my husband have the best wedding we could have asked for!
Nella And Leslie thank you so Much :)

There are not enough words on how amazing the Crystal Plaza made our special day. Fred was amazing in assuring us everything would be amazing and he hit the nail right on the head.. it was everything I dreamed of and more. I come from a very large Italian family where food is everything at a wedding. Most people get married at the same places because they know the food is good. Not being able to taste the food at Crystal Plaza was a huge risk but I assure you it is amazing! A month later and everyone is still talking about how amazing it was ! Nella was beyond amazing from the minute we walked in to the minute we walked out everything ran perfect! She is literally the best out there! And Leslie, where do I start. She fed me in between pictures while Nella spoon fed me tea since it was chilly outside. Lesie assured my lip gloss was always on and patted both me and my husband with cold rags while dancing.Our sweatheart table was alway filled with food and our cups with drinks. My family was in awe with everything, everyone kept telling us it was the party of the century, even the band made an annoucement that it was the party of the year! The Crystal Party knows how to make everything perfect and better then you could ever imagine! I hope someone in my family has a party there soon so i can enjoy the food! Thank you Crystal Plaza for making my day more then I could ever dream of.

I couldn't be happier that we chose this venue for our wedding. We looked at numerous other reception halls and Crystal Plaza blew all of them away. From our first meeting with Barry, I knew we were in good hands. They treat you like royalty as soon as you walk in. Our wedding day was ABSOLUTELY perfect!!! The whole staff is amazing. A special thank you to Barry, Nella, Leslie, Mikael, Eric, and Marco. Barry and Nella were wonderful; they were so professional and helped organize the entire wedding. Leslie is the BEST bridal attendant ever!!! She made me feel like the most important person in the world that day. She was by my side the entire day and helped me put on my dress, retouch my makeup, make sure I ate and always had a drink, and anything else you could possibly think of!!! Numerous guests said it was the best wedding they have ever been to! The service is top notch. The food is amazing, and guests can order seconds! I highly recommend the ice bar, it was a huge hit! The place is truly magical. I wish I could relive the whole day again. Crystal Plaza and their staff made my wedding dreams come true. I'm telling you, you will fall in love with this venue!!!! I can't thank you all enough!!!!!

Where to even begin... we just had our wedding reception last night (3/10/13) at Crystal Plaza and we were definitely blown away by the level of service and professionalism that the entire staff had provided for us. We reserved our date with Fred and he truly was a pleasure to work with. He ensured us nothing but the very best and that is exactly what we received. I wanted to take this opportunity to express our gratitude and appreciation to our Maitre'd Nella, Bridal Attendant Leslie, Mikael, Marco, and Kevin. You all certainly know how to set the standards in the industry. We have to say that we have never seen anything like this before; everything from the overwhelming food presentations, ice sculptures with our custom monogram that came out perfectly, the lighting, patting us down with cold towels while we were dancing, constantly freshening up Marissa with gloss, the beautiful ballroom, always being by our side each time we turned around, and I can go on and on.

This was an unforgettable experience that will forever live in our hearts. We received numerous calls and texts early this morning from friends and family telling us that it was the most amazing wedding they have ever been to and I hope that all of the potential brides and grooms who are looking for a venue to look no further. Thank you, thank you, thank you one million times to all of you and we hope to see you again in the near future.

Words cannot express how amazing the Crystal Plaza is. We could not have dreamed of a more perfect venue to have our wedding at. Everything was impeccable - the service, the food, the responsiveness, the professionalism, the space. Our guests were treated like royalty and ate like kings! It's been 3 weeks since our wedding and our guests are still raving about Crystal Plaza. Many keep telling us it's "the best wedding they've ever been to" and wish every wedding they attend could be held at this venue!

From our first meeting with Allan, we were treated like part of the Crystal Plaza family and this great feeling followed us through the entire planning process. There are not enough great things to say about our maitre d', Marco, and our bridal attendant, Leslie. They were both on top of their game the entire night and the event went just as we had planned. Leslie was amazing!!!!

We highly recommend the Crystal Plaza to anyone looking for great food, personalized attention and a sense of comfort that your event will be everything you dreamed of and more!!

The food was exceptional and full of delicious surprises. The staff was so attentive that they knew what to get us before we even had to ask for it.

From the way they treated my bridal party and family during pictures, through the beautiful ceremony and cocktail hour, to the rocking party - no one throws a wedding quite like Crystal Plaza!!

The Crystal Plaza sets the standard for outstanding weddings in New Jersey and ours was no exception. From the moment we exited our limo, the staff was prepared to assist us in any way possible and their professionalism and friendliness continued throughout the evening. The maitre d and bridal attendants made certain that anything we needed was no more than an arm's length away. We cannot say enough about the quality and amount of food for the cocktail hour and dinner. We have received endless amount of compliments from family and friends since the wedding on how amazing the food was at The Crystal Plaza. In short, if you are looking for the best, look no further than Crystal Plaza.

It's hard to describe how incredibly impressed we were with the Crystal Plaza. From our first meeting with Barry, to each communication up until the wedding day, Barry made the process incredibly pleasant. Our wedding day went off without a hitch. We are of Portuguese descent and really wanted to have some Portuguese food for appetizers and desserts, as well as Portuguese wine to accompany our dinner. All we had to do was send Nella a list of appetizers we were looking to have, as well as desserts, and they included them on our wedding day. They were also able to accommodate the wine request. We even had a 'leitao'!

The service is top notch. The food is amazing, and guests can order seconds. Many brides and grooms say they don't eat much on their wedding day, but Nella and our amazing wedding attendants were at our side the whole night taking care of us, and particularly my (bride) bridal attendant was touching up my lip gloss all night, making sure we ate a little bit of everything.

Thank you to everyone for making me and my husband have the best wedding we could have asked for. We are forever appreciative for everything that you did to make our wedding so perfect!

Our guests were blown away with everything from the decor, to the food, to the ice sculptures, to the Sweet Dreams Canteen truck at the very end. The service was impeccable and my husband and I had a dedicated "Bulter-ette" for the entire night to be sure we ate, had everything we needed and ensured we could just take it all in. I wish we could do the night all over again! It was truly spectalular!

I don't even know where to start with my review. EVERYTHING, every last detail was just PERFECT! I woke up the day after the wedding and turned to my husband and asked if it was a dream. Every last thing was just perfect and so much more than I ever expected! We knew right when we went to see the Crystal Plaza for the first time that that was the venue where we were going to be married. In fact, it was the only venue that made me cry when we were going over everything. That is how I knew! From our first meeting, to the final meetings to go over all of the details, to all of the email or phone communications in between, everything was seamless. Fred was so helpful and Nella was AMAZING and Leslie was the BEST! Nella coordinated every last thing and checked on my hubby and I all throughout the day just to make sure everything was how we wanted it. Leslie took the saying "It's the Bride's day" to a whole other level! She was so accommodating and helped me with my dress, veil, and bouquet and even helped us try some of the food from the cocktail hour since we were taking pics. She patted me down with cool towels since I was dancing the day away!! Their professionalism and presentation is unbelievable! Our guests are still raving about the food. The food was AMAZING!!! Every last thing was to die for! Our cake was beautiful! With little direction and just a picture and some bling from me they nailed it! We also used their food truck at the end. It was a HUGE HIT! The Crystal Plaza offers so many things so there is something for every bride! We highly recommend the Crystal Plaza and we are so excited to go back again for a friend’s wedding in a few months. We would not change a thing about our day, everything was PERFECT and we want to Thank You!!

I don't even know where to start with my review. EVERYTHING, every last detail was just PERFECT! I woke up the day after the wedding and turned to my husband and asked if it was a dream. Every last thing was just perfect and so much more than I ever expected! We knew right when we went to see the Crystal Plaza for the first time that that was the venue where we were going to be married. In fact, it was the only venue that made me cry when we were going over everything. That is how I knew! From our first meeting, to the final meetings to go over all of the details, to all of the email or phone communications in between, everything was seamless.

The decision to have your wedding at Crystal Plaza guarantees a wedding day that will far surpass any dreams of the perfect fairy tale. Our wedding wildly exceeded our expectations in each and every way possible.

Working with Fred throughout our engagement, we planned the wedding of our dreams, and our perfect night was executed by Nella who ensured we had nothing to worry about but enjoying ourselves. Our attendant Leslie went above and beyond in every possible way. My husband’s bowtie was perfect for every photo, my lips were freshly glossed, and she brought us a sample of each and every type of food being served to ensure we were able to experience all of the delicious items we were offering to our guests. Thanks to the staff at Crystal Plaza, we can say that we truly enjoyed every minute of our wedding: greeting our guests, experiencing our cocktail hour, enjoying the food, keeping primped for pictures, and having an amazing time on the dance floor- complete with hand-delivered cold towels for cooling off!

An entire review could be devoted to the food that was served. The extravagance of the cocktail hour was incredible. This theme continued in the ballroom with our amazing appetizer sampler platter and our guests ordering from a menu offering five different entrees to choose from. For those guests that managed to leave room for dessert, the Venetian set up was a dream come true for guests of all ages- complete with a chocolate fountain and fresh cannolis.

It has been over a month since our wedding and the accolades from our guests are continuing to pour in. Attendees are raving that our wedding-from the decor, to the food, to the staff-was by far the best wedding they have ever attended. From the moment we booked our wedding date until the very last song played by our band, our entire engagement experience and wedding day was made perfect by Fred and his team at the Crystal Plaza.

The Crystal Plaza at Livingston is the very BEST wedding venue in New Jersey! I had my wedding there last Saturday and they worked incredibly hard to make that day the most memorable and drama free. From the moment my guests arrived they were greeted by a wonderful staff catering to every one of our needs. The Maitre'D, Marco is a genuine kind person who works hand in hand to answer any question and fulfill any wish concerning your wedding day. He answers your emails immediately and is so flexible with allowing you to make your wedding day be all about who you are! Fred Fog is also FANTASTIC! He is on call almost all the time even using his personal cell phone to reach you as soon as you need to speak to him. He understands the stress of planning a wedding and is extremely sincere with pricing and always puts the customers benefit above all. He treated my husband and I with the utmost respect and consideration, which in the business world is of much value. If you are looking for a wedding venue that makes the planning process easy and truly enjoyable the crystal plaza and their staff is the way to go.

The Crystal Plaza was the perfect venue for my wedding. We searched near and far for a place to score perfect 10's for us and this was definitely it! They had a ridiculous amount of choices for food and it just made our heads spin! We worked with Fred and he was just so friendly and accommodating. Everything was asked was done without a question. The entire staff went above and beyond! Nella was always by our side the day of the wedding and my bridal attendant Leslie was there for me whenever I turned my head. Our ceremony was supposed to be outside and everything was setup and then it started to rain minutes before the ceremony was supposed to begin. The entire staff worked quickly to put together the room upstairs and to have everything run smoothly and it did. The guests rant and rave about the cocktail hour to this day about the incredible amount of food and not to mention good food! Michelin star rated worthy. The setup was out of a magazine (the type of bridal periodicals you open and wish to one day have at your own wedding). There were ice sculptures and custom monograms engraved everywhere. We had a beautiful tequila bar all carved from ice and a martini bar out of ice as well. The whole layout was perfection. Not to mention our guests had a choice of 6 for dinner. The whole party was coordinated to perfection. Nella worked with the band to make sure every minute of the evening was accounted for. Our cake was unbelievable and I was able to help design it with Crystal Plaza. At the end of the nigh as if it wasn't enough food they rolled out a candy truck for our guests and a venetian table and a cigar bar. our guests were floored at the amount of quality food and dessert we had. everything tasted delicious and everything we as smoothly as possible. I hope the Crystal Plaza will be around for another hundred years so that my future children and grandchildren can experience such an amazing wedding as well.

It has been almost 3 weeks since my wedding and I am still receiving so many compliments! Everyone LOVED the venue and thought the food was extraordinary. No one left the wedding hungry, that's for sure. All of the staff at Crystal Plaza really go above and beyond. We booked with Fred Fogg, and he had me feeling confident in my venue choice from the very beginning. He never said no, or told me the way my wedding should be (trust me, we visited many venues and there were quite a few that thought they knew better than me how my wedding should be!).
On my wedding day and the days leading up to it, Marco, the head maitre d, could not have been more helpful. On the night of my wedding, Marco and Leslie were so attentive to our every need. They even packed up some extra dinners for us to take home, which was nice since we were too busy that night to really sit and enjoy our dinner.
I have not one complaint about the Crystal Plaza. If I had to do it all over again, I wouldn't change a thing.
I thank everyone at Crystal Plaza for making our wedding day perfect!

If you are looking for the best venue in the state, this is it! Aside from being stunningly beautiful with the chandeliers and garden, the SERVICE IS OUTSTANDING. The food is the best quality that you will find at any wedding, and anything needed is provided.

It doesnt get any better than Crystal Plaza!

If I could give the Crystal Plaza a higher score than a 5, I definitely would. The Crystal Plaza made my wedding day a dream come true. People told us it was like a fairy tale, and it truly was! The service that the staff provided from the very first meeting with Fred Fogg to my bridal attendant Leslie and our Maitre D, Nella was TOP NOTCH. I have honestly never experienced such attention and care in dealing with any other businesses. I am sooooo grateful I picked them to have our wedding because in every aspect, they gave 100%. We are Russian so they prepared amazing Russian dishes but then also incorporated classical American cuisine. The food was SPECTACULAR! i absolutely LOVE this venue.

The Crystal Plaza lived up to its top notch reputation as the dream wedding venue!!!! They made our day truly perfect. From the beginning the staff was wonderful to work with, and the day of the wedding we could not have asked for better service. Leslie, Nella and the entire team were there anticipating our every need. Their staff is polished and professional, warm and excited and always attentive. I am a perfectionist, and I was very impressed with their attention to each and every detail. The presentation, abundance and deliciousness of all of the food is unbelievable. It has been a month, and everyday people tell me it is the best wedding they have even been to---the food, the bar, the beautiful garden, and the service blew everyone away.

If you want to WOW your guests and feel like royalty on your special day, the Crystal Plaza does just that.

I had my son's wedding there last night, I cant express my
thanks and appreciation to the Crystal Plaza. Besides the venue being absolutly beautiful! The food was amazing. The coctail hour /and desert hour was like nothing you will ever see anywhere else. The food was not only plentiful but absolutely delicious... The MOST impressive part of the Crystal Plaza was the staff..Marco our Matre'd and Leslie and the entire staff was professional, personable and will do anything for you....I have never in my life been to a wedding where the staff handled things the way they did at the crystal plaza...They helped you with every single detail...My son wanted to have the ceremony outside, with rain just passing through and a threat of rain
Marco made it happen, and they had the ceremony outside.
If you are planning a wedding, the Crystal Plaza is the place...It is a complete class act, and you will not find a staff like that anywhere...Thank you to all at the Crystal Plaza, and to Fred Fogg who made the planning of the wedding effortless. He was informative and handled all the planning and the menu with us, and treated us like royalty... He made us feel completely relaxed knowing everything was under control...My son and daughter in law had the wedding of their dreams. THANK YOU TO ALL From the Vallet to the Waiters/watresses , Matre'd and assistants.....YOU made a dream come true.

Service and food was extraordinary. Barry was easy to work with in the scheduling and initial planning of the wedding. Maitre'D Marco was attentive to every detail and ensured the entire wedding ran smoothly. Bridal Attendant Lesley was at the brides beck and call at every moment; even going so far as to bring mango juice and bananas for our boy just prior to the ceremony. The food is amazing, and the tequila bar is a must. Definitely recommend the Crystal Plaza.

The Crystal Plaza was AMAZING!!! All our family and friends tell us it was the best wedding they have ever been to. It was months ago and they are still talking about it and how it was a millionaires wedding. Even our most critical family and friends (which are few and never have anything positive to say) approached us, to our surprise, to praise everything and tell us what a wonderful time they had.
Our ceremony and reception took place on site. The facility, staff, service, and food were impeccable! From the moment I stepped into this venue until the day I had my wedding, I did not have a single complaint.
The landscaping and architecture of the facility are dazzling. Lush greens filled the backdrop of our ceremony while the interior seems as though it was built to please a modern day King and Queen. Both caused our pictures and videos to come out magnificently.
The food and drinks were gourmet, delicious, top shelf, and offered in abundance. All of our guests from the finest connoisseurs with highly trained pallets to the most unrefined coach potatoes who only want to eat burgers and fries raved about the taste, quality, and quantities.
The day of my wedding the maître d’ and the staff moved like ninjas, quick, quiet, and efficient. Out of nowhere they would show up to deliver something that was needed then upon completing their task they would return to the background to fulfill their higher purpose of making sure everything was running smoothly. More specifically they anticipated our needs as well as our guests before anyone even had the chance to make the request. This was our experience and has been repeatedly reported to us from everyone that attended. It seems like they have perfected the art of service.
I can’t praise The Crystal Plaza enough. After a year of visiting various venues as well as many years of attending weddings of various friends, I believe it’s one of the best places in NJ to have a wedding.

My husband and I and all of our guests are still raving about our amazing wedding at the Crystal Plaza, 4/7/12. I wish I could relive the entire night all over again. The food, décor, the service was just incredible. The Crystal Plaza really went above and beyond and made sure our day so amazing. We, and all of our guests, will never forget this day. From the moment we arrived, Nella who is fantastic and attentive , greeted us and really made us feel like royalty. She coordinated EVERYTHING and made sure we had everything, that my guests had everything they needed. I can honestly say that because of her and my bridal attendant Leslie, I didn’t worry about a single thing and I was able to enjoy the entire night. One of my favorite memories, and there were so many of them, was when Nella took my husband and I to see the ballroom and cocktail room. I will never ever forget that feeling when I saw the ballroom and saw how beautiful it was. I stood there thinking “wow this is our and the crystal plaza made it happen”. Nella took us to see the cocktail room and I just could not believe the amount of food. And the service? EXCEPTIONAL!!!! Our bridal attendants were very attentive and made sure that my husband and I were eating and trying the foods. I had someone feeding me what I thought was the most delicious lobster ever. I mean who stands there with a plate and hand feeds you. I truly felt like royalty. The best advice Nella had for me was to change into a dress and join everyone during the cocktail hour and that’s exactly what I did. My husband and I were able to greet everyone, enjoy some of the yummy foods. After that I changed back into my wedding gown for the reception. Leslie, my bridal attendant, was there every step of the way making sure I was zipped, clipped, looked great.

During the reception, Nella and my bridal attendants always made sure that we had enough food and drinks and they made sure we ate. We had so much food at our own table. We tried the filet mignon, Chilean sea bass, cakes, sweets, champagne, wines… the list goes on. We were even patted down with wet cloths while we were dancing. I have never ever in my life been treated like this before. Like a Queen!!

I cannot forget Fred Fogg, who we booked our wedding with. He is amazing and as promised made sure we got everything we wanted. We had lots of food, monogrammed ice bars – martini, tequila, seafood and of course the sushi bar which was completely made of ice along with a sushi chef dressed in traditional garb. Words cannot even begin to describe how fabulous our wedding was. My family and guests were blown away and told me that they’ve never seen anything like this before. One guest even told me that they could not top what the Crystal Plaza did. There were a variety of stations that were all delicious, seafood with fresh lobster and shrimp, sliders, guacamole!!!! I’ve never seen anything like this at a wedding before and I’ve been to tons of them.

Every penny spent here was worth it and I would do it all over again if I could. Again, the staff, service, food, Nella… just unbelievable. If I could, I would call them every day to let them know how appreciative and grateful we are for all that they’ve done for us. I HOPE that one day we’ll get invited a wedding at the Crystal Plaza. Ladies/guys this is the place you need to book for your wedding.

Words can't describe how special The Crystal Plaza made our wedding. From the moment we arrived, Nella and Leslie made my husband and I feel like a King and Queen. We have both been to our fair share of weddings, as well as in our fair share of weddings and I can tell you that there is not a bridal attendant around like Leslie. She is truly one of a kind. She had me sold when she bustled my dress in about 30 seconds and taught me how to go to the bathroom in my dress easily in about two minutes (by the end of the night we had it down to a science). She constantly re-applied my lip gloss so that my pictures remained perfect throughout the night. She wiped my husband and I down with cold wet clothes throughout the night, especially while dancing. And the most amazing thing....she made sure we both ate at our own wedding (in fact, after cocktail hour I was so full from eating that I could barely touch food for the rest of the night). Two of my favorite memories of the day were when Nella took my husband I first into the cocktail hour room before cocktail hour started to view the room all set up. Then she took us into the reception room to do the same thing. The memories of seeing "our wedding" and how it all looked is something I will never forget. Our family and friends have not stopped talking about how amazing our wedding was. From the food, to the decor and to the amazing service that The Crystal Plaza supplied. I cannot say enough good things about this place and if you're a bride looking for a Fairy Tale wedding....Look no further than The Crystal Plaza. They are willing to work with you on price and they are worth every penny.

Crystal Plaza is the most amazing venue in New Jersey! The ENTIRE staff from the planning stages of our wedding until the end of the event at 2 a.m. is professional, warm,and attentive. They will exceed all your expectations. The food is amazing,delicious, plentiful,and served with the utmost attention to every detail. There is no request that is a problem. The individual butlers provided for the bride and groom were phenomenol. There was no need for a "dresser" for the bride. "Leslie" took care of every detail from the application of the headpiece, lacing the dress, and bustling after the ceremony. "Barry" and "Jason" ran our party with the greatest ease, making perfection seem effortless! Alan Janoff runs an establishment that isn't 5 star-it's 10 stars. Every aspect of your event will be stellar at the Crystal Plaza. You will not have to worry about a thing. They do the MOST FABULOUS job! Debie Stein

And the award goes to...the CRYSTAL PLAZA!!!
What can I say that hasn't already been said? The CP is the most outstanding place to get married in New Jersey. The owner Alan Janof has quite the personality and when you meet him or anyone on his team you will feel like all of your dreams just came true. And believe me-the Crystal delivers every single detail they promise you to the "T"... My Top 3 reasons I would recommend the Crystal Plaza are...

#1- EVERY picure you take will be amazing because there are so many rich details in this mansion that will make you look specatacular.
#2 - We saved a ton of money on flowers by using the elegant candelabras provided as our table centerieces.
#3 - The Chapel on premises made it easier for our guests not having to drive from another place and enabled us to have an organized timeline for the start of the ceremony.
Oh and there are so many more reasons but where would I stop?
Nella-a super-pro with elegance & grace, Leslie-a bridal attendant that's there for you anticipating your every need, Marco-when he's says "I'll take care of it" He will! The food, the cake (it's included)
On your wedding day you have about 5-6 hours to cherish and remember for the rest of your life.
It's worth every penny.

Just to let the brides know, I was the groom and am leaving this review. From day one of working with Jay and the Crystal Plaza (CP), I knew our wedding would be great.

What I didn't know is how much more amazing it would on the actual day. We were married this past Saturday, 1/28/12. Everyone has that "party" in their head before it happens...CP produced a party 10x that of which I could even imagine. My family is still getting phone calls about how amazing the food was, gorgeous the place was, how amazing the night was.

I can say without hesitation that Jay helped us with vendors (our band The Rhythm Shop), he navigated us to the best choices through their amazing menu, and helped us create the best flow of events throughout the night.

I honestly cannot say enough about my wedding aside from I am upset it's over. Now, I am hoping to be a guest at a wedding at Crystal Plaza so that I can enjoy all the food again and venue as a whole. Go see/speak/book now, you will not regret it.

Oh and Leslie the bridal attendant, she's the most amazing woman ever who makes sure the bride and groom are spot on, not only helping during pictures, but throughout the whole night. CP and staff, A+++++

WE LOVE THE CRYSTAL PLAZA!!!!! Our wedding at the Crystal Plaza was a dream come true! My husband and I got married on January 20, 2012 and from start to finish our guests were treated like royalty and my husband and I were spoiled to death! The staff is absolutely phenomenal! We booked our wedding with Barry, who is so amazing to work with. Nella coordinated our wedding and did a FANTASTIC job with everything... Trust her opinion 100% because she knows her stuff! Leslie was my bridal assistant on the day of, and I kept calling her my angel beause that is exactly what she is! Anything we needed she was there with it, before we even realized we needed it! Sewing my bridesmaids dress that needed to be tightened, tissues perfectly tucked into my bouquet in case the tears of joy started during the ceremony, reapplying my lipstick ALLLLL night long, fixing my dress and veil to be pretty all night, cold cloths on the dance floor to cool my husband and I down, and anything and everything you can imagine ... she was there! :) Our friends and family can never stop raving about the beauty of the rooms, the amazing and ENDLESS food, the monogrammed ICE BAR was a HUUUUGE hit (this is so necessary!), and the service was TOPS! I can obviously go on and on and ON about our experience at the Crystal Plaza but you should really see for yourself! I can only hope one of our friends has a wedding there SOON so we can go back ASAP!!! <3

My wife and I had our wedding reception at the Crystal Plaza, and could not be happier with how it turned out. To say that it surpassed our expectations would be an understatement. As soon as we walked in to the Crystal Plaza we were treated like family. The staff from the owner Allan Janoff to our maitre d to the bridal attendant took such great care to make sure every single aspect of our wedding was perfect. The cocktail hour was incredible and offered so much food that some of our guests thought that is was the actual meal. Dinner was even better. The appetizers, main course and dessert were all delicious. Our guests were even offered seconds if they were still hungry. I have never heard of that happening at a wedding, and think it is indicative of how the Crystal Plaza goes above and beyond. When we walked into the room we were blown away, my wife even got teary eyed! The lighting, huge ice bar in the room and the entire setting surpassed our expectations. As our guests were leaving they set up dunkin donuts and coffee in the foyer - it was such a hit!! We attended a wedding there two years ago and it was the best wedding we have ever been too - when we got engaged there was no question that we wanted to have our wedding there also. We highly recommend the Crystal Plaza and feel so blessed that we able to celebrate our wedding at their venue.

If I had one word to describe the Crystal Plaza it would be AMAZING!  From the moment we set foot inside and met with Nella and Barry we knew this is where we wanted our wedding to be held on December 3rd, 2011.  They made us feel at home and helped us tremendously with our Italian wedding.  We both come from large Italian families and they are definitely a tough crowd to please.  Nella worked with us and helped us create a cocktail hour and a reception that was beyond what we imagined.  Needless to say, our family was amazed and very satisfied with all the different stations....homemade mozzarella station, raw bar, pasta station, broccoli rabe, fried olives, fried fish...a feast for Italians!   The staff was outstanding, professional and courteous.  Not only were we taken care of, but our guests were very pleased with the service.  They truly made me feel like a princess for the day and it's a day I will never forget.  Friends and family can't stop talking about the food, service and fun they had. I have Nella, my bridal attendant and the staff at the Crystal Plaza to thank for making our wedding day a most memorable one.  THANK YOU

We looked at many reception facilities when planning our daughter's wedding, but immediately felt the Crystal Plaza had something special.

Our daughter's wedding on November 18, 2011 was nothing short of perfection. Fred, Nella and the entire staff helped us through every step of the way. Every question was answered and every effort was made to make sure the bride and groom (and their parents) enjoyed this special occasion.

Whether it was input on the menu, Leslie assisting in bustling the gown or addressing the food allergy concerns of several guests - they went above and beyond.

Guests are still calling to tell us how fabulous the evening was and we've heard more than a few people comment, "That's the best wedding I have ever been to." We think that statement says it all!

Sincerely,
Al & Barbara Einsiedler

The Crystal Plaza in Livingston, NJ was a dream come true for my 11-11-11 wedding! I couldn't have been happier with the appearance, food, and service provided by the Crystal Plaza. Just to name a few people-Barry, Nella, Leslie, and Marco were so wonderful! Not to mention the other staff members working that night. Family and friends are telling me the service that they received was exceptional. The Crystal Plaza was interested in the details which was wonderful because as a Bride that's what I was interested in-setting my wedding a part from the others and the Crystal Plaza helped me do that.

Nella sat with my family and worked out the details. Marco and Barry greeted my family and I days before the wedding and made sure that everything was ready. Nella and Leslie were so attentive the night of my wedding making sure my husband and I were taken care of. They made sure that my family and guests were taken care of as well.

Everyone LOVED all the food-so many choices and delicious. My husband and I were able to eat because Nella and Leslie made sure of it!

There is nothing I would have wanted differently that night.

If you are looking for a venue go with the Crystal Plaza- you will not be disappointed!

The measure of true excellence is the ability to perform at the highest levels of professionalism and deliver the highest level of quality under the most challenging of circumstances. The entire Crystal Plaza staff demonstrated remarkable calm, confidence and professionalism on our wedding day to ensure that in spite of the aftermath of the rare October snow storm, downed trees and power outages, our wedding was perfect, absolutely perfect!

We watched as the staff prepared the room for the party without lights. The entire staff was poised, calm and getting ready for the party...as though it was business as usual. The staff were assuring me all was fine--not even a bead of sweat...(although it was still cold in the Crystal Plaza without heat). I was worried, but their confidence calmed me down, even though I now know that behind the scenes there were Herculean efforts underway to make sure the wedding took place.

Words cannot express how thankful that we all are. The truth is, we know the CP could have cancelled the affair as we have heard many venues did.

Put aside the extraordinary situation, our phones have been ringing off the hook. The food, the service, the beauty of the Crystal and of course the spirituality of the wedding made this a remarkable occasion. Everyone has said that it was the best wedding they had ever been to. It was everything that we had hoped for....the physical beauty (the place and the food) combined with the spirituality and spirit of all the guests combined to make it an unforgettable occasion. Everyone was moved by the whole experience and the beauty and the warm that was made all the more special by the wonderful staff at the Crystal Plaza.

Wow! Wow! Wow! The entire Crystal Plaza staff demonstrated "true excellence" under the most difficult of circumstances and made our dreams come true.

Dear Fred, Nella and all the stuff at Crystal Plaza
There are not enough words to express our gratitude to all of you! Our daughter's wedding was on that crazy Saturday, October 29 when the snow storm of the century knocked down power lines and covered the roads with inches and inches of wet snow.
Fred, you are our hero!
You saved our wedding and instead of being a disaster it turned out to be the most beautiful fairy tale celebration with the candles lighting up the ballroom. Nobody even guessed there was a single problem during the wedding, and our guests still raving about it! Wonderful Nella patiently and flawlessly guided us through the whole evening, food was superb, service outstanding; all the employees of Crystal Plaza were extremely polite, helpful and very professional. Thank you all from the bottom of our heart! Crystal Plaza is the NUMBER ONE place for out future celebrations!

Sincerely,

If you are looking for a perfect venue for your wedding then look no further than Crystal Plaza. They had us at hello and it was love at first sight. When we came to Crystal Plaza and were greeted with such warmth and hospitality we knew this was the place for our dream wedding. The staff and service were impeccable. The food was delicious. Absolutely perfect venue in every way.

Fred, who helped plan our event was superb. Every promise was delivered. He helped us design an incredible food menu that people are still talking about.

Now lets talk about my favorite person, Nella. A true angel and an amazing woman that will forever hold a special place in my heart. She made sure our wedding day went by smoothly and handled it so professionally. She made sure my husband and I got fed while we were taking pictures. She even wiped us with wet towels while we were sweating on the dance floor, which I have never seen before. When she saw I took off my wedding shoes she ran to the bridal suite without waiting for me to say something and got my flats. As my family recalls what a spectacular event we had at Crystal Plaza, my mother and mother in law and myself still talk about how amazing Nella was and what she did for us that day.

My bridal attendant, Leslie was a sweetheart. She stayed with me the whole day. She fed me as I took pictures, reapplied lipgloss, helped me to go to the bathroom, and was great company while I sat in my bridal suite during cocktail hour.

So to sum it all Crystal Plaza made our dream fairtytale wedding come true!!!!

If there were more stars for service, Crytsal Plaza should be rated a 6 out of 5. Their service is absolutely impeccable. They advertise they have 1 server for every 4 guests but this is 100% what they do. As a bride, they insured I had a drink in my hand at all times, that we had food, that my dress was properly bustled, and that I was able to see all the beautiful parts of the wedding without missing anything important. My guests raved about their service as wel. We had a fall wedding and they had a pumpkin mash that was to die for! They brought more to our guests!
Marco and Nella listened to my ideas of wanting a true, traditional Italiian wedding and they delivered. I cannot say enough about the Crystal Plaza. They truly don't need the advertising as they are well known but I think it is impt to note that they deliver what they promise. You do have to pay a pretty penny, but it is well spent. They are like family there and once you book with them, they treat you as part of their family.

On, October 16th I had the most amazing wedding I could ever dream of. I am beyond satisfied that I choose The Crystal Plaza as my venue. They are truly the best at what they do and you can tell they are one big family and everyone who works there is so friendly and nice. I have to give a big thank you to Fred, Nella, Leslie, Ruvin, Allan, Marco, Eric, Leahann, and Cindy!!! Fred was there for me every step of the way throughout my entire year of planning. He knew my vision and we clicked right away. Nella, Leslie and Ruvin treated me like a princess my entire wedding day. From the moment we arrived at The Crystal Plaza there was food set up outside by the ceremony for my bridal party to munch on while we took pictures. Fred, Nella, Leslie and Ruvin were waiting for us as we pulled in. Our ceremony was outdoors and around it they have beautiful greenery and flowers so you really don’t have to go anywhere else to take pictures. My cocktail hour was incredible, from the unbelievable ice sculptures to the massive amounts of food. Everyone has told me there service was top notch. The ballroom is to die for! The numerous chandeliers look beautiful in pictures. From start to finish everything was perfect. I am so happy I choose the Crystal Plaza for my wedding. My family and friends all told me it was the best wedding they have ever been too. They all said the food was delicious and the dessert plate was the coolest dessert they ever saw at a wedding. I loved my wedding and would love to have another party at the Crystal Plaza in the future. I hope that one of my friends chooses the Crystal Plaza for their wedding so I can attend another party there one day.

It's hard to put into words how AMAZING the Crystal Plaza is because they left me speechless!! My fiance and I held our venue to a high standard, and they surpassed it. The attention to detail is amazing!! Fronm the moment I arrived to the very end, I felt like a princess. The food is DELICIOUS, the grounds and bulding are very well maintained, and the service is top notch. From my attendant following me throughout the cocktail hour with a tray of food (and feeding me!) to make sure I ate, to our Maitre'd (Nella is the best!!) wiping us with cold towels on the dance floor; whatever I needed was taken care of right away by my attendant Lesly(such a sweetheart!!) even before I needed it. If there was a rating higher than 5 I would give it to the Crystal Plaza...they go above and beyond in everything they do. The Crystal Plaza will forever hold a special place in my heart for giving us the wedding of our dreams! I wouldn't change a thing!!

Where do I even begin with reviewing the Crystal Plaza? There are so many positive things to be said about this place, the staff, the food and the overall experience. From the start of our wedding planning, Alan Janoff was incredible to work with and was completely focused on making myself, my husband and our respective families happy. Any question or thought I had I was able to email Alan, Jason or Nella and receive a quick response right away. Once we arrived to the Crystal Plaza we were greeted by Nella who kept the wedding on track all day and was so fantastic and a true professional. Leslie was also an incredible bridal attendant going above and beyond, helping my sister with my bustle, wiping us down with cold towels, and even feeding us!
The Crystal Plaza really goes above and beyond to surpass your expectations. Our guests were truly speechless at the service they experienced as well as the food! The food is so delicious its as if you are eating at a high end restaurant. We highly recommend the Crystal Plaza and will never forget the most extrodinary day of our lives thanks to them.

We had the most classy wedding we could have ever imagined. The compliments keep trickling in. We met with Barry, co-owner of Crystal Plaza: He was timely, sincere, professional, offered great tips and recommendations (which we used), and we couldn't be happier with the results. The place itself is gorgeous. It's gilded and pristine. It's a former mansion and a ONE-wedding-only estabishment. The ladies' room is a "picture must" (you'll see). The balcony over which to toss the bouquet is an excellent touch. The ice bar and ice sculptures are just the right amount of sass-meets-sophistication. The grand room is so beautiful, you do not need flowers. We had them, but it wasn't necessary that is how gorgeous the room is. The lighting changes color throughout the night, which sets a good pace for the evening, and looks remarkable in pictures. THE MOST IMPORTANT THING is the FOOD and over that every one is still RAVING. The cocktail hour has ELEVEN stations. OVER FLOWING. It is impossible not to like this food (and that is coming from an Italian). We also had four entree selections, written on beautiful cards, all courtesy of Crystal Plaza. Each table has at least two waiters, so your guests will NOT be hanging out at the bar getting drinks (although the bar was cool (ice!), they will be on the dance floor dancing. The staff is attentive. Nella knows what she is doing and she will be with you the entire night. Final point that sums up how Class Act of an establishment this is -- my parents' friends had their daughter's wedding at Crystal Plaza and the waiter recognized them. The couple mentioned how much they enjoyed the guacamole at the Mexican cocktail station. The waiter brought them some to take home. Thanks Barry, Nella, and Staff at Crystal Plaza.

We cannot explain how perfect and amazing the Crystal Plaza was for our wedding. The building and grounds are beautiful and so well kept-you truly feel like you have your own private mansion for the evening. From the first time we met Jason we enjoyed working with him. He made the entire process so easy and everytime we called or visited prior to our day someone was available to help and anwser any question we had. They offer you so many options that will allow you to make your night unique and different from other weddings. The night was aboslutley perfect--the cocktail hour was amazing and had even more food we even expected. The ballroom was beautiful and the new lighting they put it made the room even more wonderful. My husband and I had the pleasure of Leslie and Rovin's company all night. From the moment I stepped out of the limo Leslie was by my side the entire night and wouldn't let me do a single thing. She was such a big part of why the night went so well. She provided me drinks during our photographs, managed to bustle a very complicated train in just 5 minutes so my mom didnt have to, made food for me to eat so I didnt have to stop talking with guests and just made sure everything was taken care. She is incredibly good at her job and is one of the reasons why the Crystal Plaza prides themelves on such great service. Rovin was just as outstanding and was always there when you needed something, extremely polite and kind. The entire staff at the CP is one of the reasons why it is such a great place to get married. The entire wedding ran so smoothly and all my husband and I had to worry about was having a great time. They packed all of our belongings up at the end of night, which I know I would have forgotten some things, and truly took care of everyone in my family from the moment we got there to the moment we all left. I'll never forget my wedding day and I owe a huge part of that to the Crystal Plaza and their staff.

The entire wedding ran so smoothly and all my husband and I had to worry about was having a great time. They packed all of our belongings up at the end of night, which I know I would have forgotten some things, and truly took care of everyone in my family from the moment we got there to the moment we all left. I'll never forget my wedding day and I owe a huge part of that to the Crystal Plaza and their staff. Read less

I cannot put into words how amazing our wedding was. From the moment we walked into Crystal Plaza on the day of our wedding, we knew everything was going to absolutely perfect. Lesley and Danielle the bridal attendants were fabulous. They were right behind me every step of the way. Jason was excellent, he was so organized and made sure everything ran smoothly. Our guests have not stopped raving about how beautiful and delicious the cocktail hour was. The ice sculpture was great! The dinner presentation was beautiful and delicious as well. Everything was done just as we had discussed. It was a wonderful party. Our guests have told us, " it was the best wedding they have ever been too" and "it was the wedding of the year." Thank you so much for making us feel so special. As the bride I truly felt like a princess. It was all we could ask for and more. Thank you especially to Allan for organizing and making our wedding so surreal. Thank you to the entire staff for working so diligently in making our wedding one of a kind. (September 18, 2011)

I want to thank everyone at Crystal Plaza who made my Wedding a dream come true. from the minute I arrived to the minute I left every detail, was tended and catered to. the staff is absolutely the BEST!!!! My husband and I are in awe of what an amazing night we had. Our family and friends can not stop talking about how Delicious the food was and how on point with every detail the staff is (they are for sure on top of their game)!!! everyone at crystal plaza is absolutely a pleasure to be around. Eric, Nella, Leanne and Leslie are all absolutely TERRIFIC. All of my bridesmaids could not get over how great Leslie is. From the minute I came into crystal plaza to get ready I was catered to non-stop. not only did Leslie help me with every single detail. she helped my bridesmaids, groom, and parents. This place is hands down worth every penny. from the friendly phone service (Eric is a doll) to the most professional experienced wedding maitre' d (Nella is fab) to a bridal attendant who is there with you for all the help you need (Leslie is a doll) I would recommended this place to anyone who can afford it, and look forward to coming here again very soon.

I am writing this review as a bit of a response to the person who had nothing to eat at a Russian Style wedding. WOW!! We have attended MANY Russian style weddings and besides the word PHENOMENAL there is nothing to be said. Something fishy with that review - most people (we being Russian too) have attended several affairs at the Crystal Plaza before booking there - you must be really new to the country not to have attended a wedding there. I would assume when one books such an affair it is because the research was done. Second, you could've said that it wasn't what you expected it to be but to use the word hungry - that's a sin. There are hungry people out there. Third, my brother had his wedding there less than a year ago and words could not describe the abundance of food, the superb service, the amazing staff that made this day go as smoothly and comfortably as possible. You (whoever you are) are a great minority. If you are so upset about the HUNGRY guests - offer them a refund on the gift - that would be noble. Very Fishy! Also, this is not a Russian restaurant for you where you bring your liquor and take it home. Get with the program - not all restaurants are Russian Restaurants - you belong in that one and this seems way above you. Good luck and hope you have a great marriage and don't go hungry again.

Amazing, first-class, perfect, magical.... These words cannot even begin to describe our experience at Crystal Plaza. I am an event planner with very high standards, Crystal Plaza far exceeded my preconceived notions and most extravagant dreams.

THE STAFF
Leslie, Nella, Fred and the rest of the staff at Crystal Plaza are so attentive and professional. They are warm, affectionate and caring - even though they do this every weekend, they made us feel special and unique. When we arrived for pictures, they had food and champagne prepared for us. It was a warm day, so they had ice cold towels for my legs and a constant supply of cold drinks. My dress got a little dirty from walking in the grass, I was soo upset. They cleaned my dress in two minutes and made it look brand new. Every picture that we took, they were there to fix our hair, dresses and tuxes. The waiters were professional and kind. It seemed like they really cared about us and our guests. At every point, they were there with a smile on their face. At the end of the night, my feet were killing me. They gave me flip flops!

THE FOOD
The food and service were outstanding; it's comparable to a five-star restaurant. We have been to many weddings and nothing comes close to Crystal Plaza. When originally selecting food options, Fred gave us his recommendations and guided the process. Every promise that he made was fulfilled tenfold.

COCKTAIL HOUR! There were at least 10 different styles of ice sculptures; it was soo extravagant. There were entire bars made of ice - martini glasses, ice bowls, etc. The food was amazing. It seemed as though wherever you looked, people were eating different, exquisite dishes. There was so much food to select!

My husband is Russian and we wanted the food to be served Russian Style. This means that there is a constant supply of food, and plates are served family style. When we entered the hall, the tables were filled with the most exquisite appetizers. And, the food kept coming! During dinner waiters constantly walked around, serving our guests an endless supply of 5 different entrees. The steak, lamb, fish, chicken and lobster were out of this world amazing! Each dish made it to our table (we had a huge one), I took tiny bites of everything. A table of my guests were outside during this time, and as soon as they returned to their table, the waiters appeared from nowhere and immediately served them with hot food. The Venetian Hour was incredible. It felt like wherever you turned your head, there was another dessert. I cannot even list all the desserts, but I am sure everyone was able to find their favorites. It was the most amazing night.

THE VENUE & GROUNDS

The venue and gardens are beautiful. The gazebo and cobblestone walkway are extremely romantic. The hall has huge ceilings and a balcony with gorgeous chandeliers. Simply Spectacular!

My only regret is that the night went by so fast! I can't wait to make babies, so we can have their parties here!

When my sister got married at the Crystal Plaza back in 2006, I knew the second we started planning her wedding there, that one day, this is where I would be getting married. Sure enough, on August 13, 2011, my husband and I had the most amazing night of our lives, and we owe it to the staff at Crystal Plaza (and our parents!) Barry, Leslie, Rovin, Leanne, and Marcos were the most professional and extraordinary staff members you can find. From the moment we started planning, to the moment we walked out to the CANDY TRUCK at the end of the night, the day was magical.

We were planning on getting married outside in the beautiful garden. Everything was set up, pictures were taken, drinks were flowing, and almost all guests had arrived. Not until 5 minutes before our ceremony, we were told there were rain drops!! The crew at CP, not only made us feel completely at ease about this "situation", but they quickly transformed the room upstairs into the most magnificent ceremony setting you can imagine!

Leslie was on top of her game the moment we pulled up that day. My dress had a big train and as it was busseled correctly, it kept getting loose and guests were stepping on it on the dance floor. Leslie was able to use her magical powers (I swear she has them!) to fix it and make it perfect!

About a month and a half later, we still have friends talking about the food!! The cocktail hour was above and beyond anything we could have ever imagined. The ice sculptures were exquisite works of art! During the reception, there was never a lack of responsiveness from the staff, and everyone was so professional and helpful! The dinner food was incredible. My husband and I were not able to eat as much as we wanted (we were told this would happen...boo! because it was OUR wedding) but we were able to taste the mouth-watering entrees when they sent us home with one of each!! The veal chop was unbelievable!! And the dessert...trays of delicious donuts, fried oreos, and mini milkshakes passed out on the dance floor, along with two amazing creations at the tables kept all of our guests in continuous amazement.

The next morning, my husband and I woke up and said to each other that we wish the night lasted forever. Our wedding was more than we could ever have dreamed of! We cannot wait to be guests at another event at the Crystal Plaza to experience the moments again. If we could go back and do it all over again, we would not change a thing!! Thank you, Crystal Plaza, for making our wedding the most amazing day of our lives! ~Keri and Scott

Amazing. Spectacular. Above and beyond. These are some of the words that come to mind when we think of the Crystal Plaza. The Crystal Plaza is where our wedding celebration took place on July 16, 2011. From planning our wedding to the execution of it, we had an overwhelmingly positive experience. It was 100% stress free.

We partnered with Fred to plan our celebration and he was a everything we could have hoped for and more! Marco was our maitre d’ and he was tremendous. Marco was organized, well prepared and anticipated every move. Marco partnered directly with all of our vendors to ensure everything went according to plan. We are so grateful to Marco for all that he did to make our day as special as it was and exactly as we planned it. Lesley and Rovin were our attendants and they were phenomenal. Their attentiveness exceeded our expectations and was second to none. Lesley and Rovin attended to our every need…if we were hot, they had cold towels to cool us down, if we needed a drink, another one appeared….all of this happened without us even having to ask. All of these individuals were able to help us create memories that we will cherish for our entire life. We can’t thank them enough.

One month later, our family and friends are still commenting on how amazing our wedding was…”This was the best wedding we’ve ever been to.” Our guests were amazed by the ambience of the mansion and the quality and quantity of food. Our cocktail hour and Viennese hour were truly amazing….you can’t even imagine how wonderful it was. We had (5) bars made of ice, individuals making homemade mozzarella, an olive oil bar, a raw seafood bar with clams, oysters, shrimp, crab claws and lobster tails (the lobster tails were taken out of the shell), individuals making homemade cannoli’s and zeppoles, and on, and on, and on. The quality of food was top notch and every attention to detail was looked after.

As one of our guests was leaving, he said to us, “This was like a Disney Wedding.” The Crystal Plaza was able to make our dreams become a reality. Special thanks to Fred, Marco, Nella, Lesley and Rovin.

I had my wedding at the Crsytal Plaza on July 15th and booking them was the best decision I could have made. From start to finish they were friendly, helpful, and professional. Our event could not have run any smoother and looked more beautiful. From start to finish they thought of everything. Our guests were enamored with the beauty of the ballroom, the delicious food at the cocktail hour which seemed endless, and the martini bar which was made out of ice and was never empty. Just the variety of food choices alone at the cocktail hour blew everyone away and the dessert hour was like nothing I have ever seen before. Our guests left telling us that after being at over 20 weddings that this was hands down the best. Nella took care of making sure everything ran smoothly and that my husband and I had everything we needed. Our assistant, Donna, was absolutely amazing! She thought of things before we even asked and even brought cold towels to cool us down on the dance floor. They even recently installed beautiful uplighting which gave the room a glow and just set the mood for our guests as they entered. If you want an unbelievable event, with unbelievable service, and the nicest most wonderful staff to work with book the Crystal Plaza. You won't regret your choice!

To any bride and groom who wish to have a memorable wedding reception:

We never thought it could be as amazing as it was. We first met with Barry who was professional, patient, and invaluably helpful with our preparations. On our wedding day we arrived to the mansion and it felt like it was all ours. We were welcomed by the staff who pampered us like royalty. Our maitre'd Nella personally made sure that we wanted for nothing throughout the whole reception. Rovin our butler made us feel like masters of the house, and served well throughout the night. Donna our assistant went far and beyond to make us comfortable and smiling all night. In essence the entire staff could not have been better. To this day our guests still compliment us for choosing such an incredable place, and in all honesty, we enjoyed our reception emensly, but we hope that someone we know has their reception at the Crystal Plaza just so we can experience it again as guests.

Perfect across the board!! Starting with Fred Fogg, our event coordinator, and ending with Nella and Leslie our wedding day managers, everything was fantastic. The entire process was stress free and easy. We didn't have to worry about a single thing. All the details were carefully planned out by the impeccable staff and there is not a single thing we would have changed about our entire wedding night.

Nothing about our night was cookie cutter. All of our guests were floored by the original cocktail hour (4 unique ice sculptures/bars), sushi of the highest caliber, and the amazing service. We can't thank Fred enough for putting together such an incredible night. We would recommend the Crystal Plaza without hesitation. You will not regret it! Stacy and Noah

I truly can't say enough good things about the Crystal Plaza. From the very beginning to the very end, they have been such a pleasure to deal with! We got married there on June 10th and it completely beat our expectations by far. We knew it was a beautiful place with supposedly good service and good food but we didn't realize how incredible they really are. Barry, the banquet manager treated us with top notch professionalism. He got back to me in a flash with all our questions and gave us his undivided attention. Nella, our maitre'd was also amazing. She is so good at her job and very passionate about ensuring that the day is going to run smoothly. She was key in making it a special day and keeping us calm and relaxed at all times. She doesn't miss a thing. Leslie, the bridal assistant was also there every step of the night to be sure everyone had what they needed before they could even ask. Simply put, the Crystal Plaza knows how to do weddings the right way.
People are still telling me everyday how amazing our wedding was. The food was spectacular, the presentation beautiful and the service unbeatable. They went above and beyond and then above and beyond again and again.

The Crystal Plaza was an unbelievable place to get married!! We had an amazing experience and would not have changed a thing! The venue was absolutely perfect for outside pictures and for either an outside or inside ceremony. We were planning on having our ceremony outside yet it started raining an hour before the guests arrived. The staff were able to move everything inside smoothly and quickly and made it look just as beautiful inside. The food unbelievable!!!

The Crystal Plaza was an unbelievable place to get married!! We had an amazing experience and would not have changed a thing! The venue was absolutely perfect for outside pictures and for either an outside or inside ceremony. We were planning on having our ceremony outside yet it started raining an hour before the guests arrived. The staff were able to move everything inside smoothly and quickly and made it look just as beautiful inside. The food unbelievable!!!

On May 20th I had my dreams come true.

My fiance and I were blown away, as we had high expectations, but the service, professionalism, energy, friendliness, responsiveness that were received that evening were unbelievable.

From that day on and until today we are still getting phone calls, emails, and texts about our Wedding Night.

The presentation of the food from the cocktail hour, to every course that came there after during the reception, to the Venetian Hour, we were extremely satisfied. Our Wedding Cake was designed exactly to what we imagined and discussed...

The attendants that day; Nella, Lindsey, and Jason were more than we could ever ask for...in being attentive to not only our needs but to our guests. All of our guests were taken care of.

As I started in saying, all of my dreams came true as being a bride at the one and only Crystal Plaza.

My husband and I got married at the Crystal Plaza on April 3rd and every single aspect of our wedding day was spectacular. The staff at the Crystal Plaza went above and beyond in every way. Everyone was incredibly attentive and personable and literally catered to our every need. The entire planning process was seamless and easy making our wedding day stress free and so much fun. We could not have imagined how perfect the day would be. All of our guests raved about the food, the presentation, the cocktail hour, the drinks, the service and aesthetic of the venue. We could not have asked for anything more if we tried. If you are looking to enjoy your wedding day and leave the details to the professionals, this is the place for you. Thank you Crystal Plaza for making our wedding the most amazing day!!

We just had our wedding reception at the Crystal Plaza and I wouldn't describe it as anything less than perfect! We were looking for a cocktail style wedding and upon our first meeting with Fred he knew exactly what we were looking for and that the Crystal Plaza loved throwing parties like that. They went beyond our expectations and we couldn't be happier. Friends and Family have done nothing but rave about how beautiful the venue was and how fabulous the food was and how unbelievable the service was. Nella and team were truly AMAZING. I've never been catered to in such a way in my entire life. From the holding of umbrellas outside in the rain, to the cold towel compresses when stepping off the dance floor, to the pinning of my bustle when it started to fall later into the night. Everything was just incredible!! I couldn't have imagined or asked for more. I would highly recommend the Crystal Plaza to anyone!! I can't thank them enough for everything!

It just doesn't get better than Crystal Plaza. The grounds, the food, and the service are all top-notch.

To start, the cocktail hour was absolutely spectacular - we didn't give much direction and, in turn, Crystal Plaza performed way above our expectations. Specialty martinis, an ice bar (that is, an entire bar made of ice!!), lamb chops, sushi -- I could go on and on. Suffice it to say that some of our friends were amazed that there was dinner served afterwards! The seated dinner was equally impressive -- truly, top restaurant-quality meals served to each guest. Our friends and family are still raving about the food and the service. They said that the servers were so attentive that each guest felt that they had their own butler for the length of the reception!

The staff took great care of me, my husband, and our bridal party from the moment we arrived until they sent us home with our belongings neatly packed (as well as a couple of doggie bags for late-night noshing!). My attendant, Donna, has the sweetest disposition and took care of my every need, from supplying food/drink, reapplying lip gloss, to bustling my dress. Our maitre d, Nedda, was superb. She is a real pro and firmly kept everything running smoothly, yet was supportive when I voiced my preferences as far as the day's events.

We are so happy we chose Crystal Plaza as the setting for our big day...and are hoping to be a guest at an event there in the near future! :)

I would recommend Crystal Plaza 100%. We had the most beautiful wedding in March of 2011. We had our ceremony take place in the ballroom in front of all of our guests and had a cocktail reception, which was GREAT! We had so much food, so many different stations, and had soup to nuts. The food was great, the service was great, the professionalism was outstanding. I can't thank Nella and Leslie enough for doing such a great job!! We felt like a King and Queen on our special day. Nella outdid herself that day and through the whole planning stage. The band we hired Opera 3000, was the greatest, and had people dancing all night long!! The room was absolutely stunning and couldn't ask for anything more. Thank you Crystal Plaza!

I recently had my wedding (both ceremony and reception) at Crystal Plaza and words can't describe how amazing and perfect the day was! It was literally a dream come true!! Family and friends can't keep talking about it being the best wedding they have ever been to BY FAR. The venue is gorgeous and the service is incredible... 1 waiter, 2 butlers to a table! And the food, to die for (which is rare at a wedding). I wasn't even interested in wedding cakes, yet they provided me with the most beautiful cake i have EVER seen.. i have the pictures to prove it!!! Jason, Nella, and Leslie made my cinderella wedding come to life... I owe them so much and can't thank them enough!!! I feel so lucky to have had such a perfect day and owe it all to the Crystal Plaza =)

Crystal Plaza threw us a truly spectacular affair. During the planning Fred gave us pretty much everything we wanted and provided his professional opinion when we needed it- such as how to balance out the cocktail hour station selections and when we were deciding between different entree accompaniments. He and the pastry chef Marco also worked with me to create a special groom's cake that my husband loved. They have even offered to make another one for us since he didn't get to try it that night!

Our guests all said they had never had such delicious food at a wedding before, and the amount of food was outrageous. (They even packed up a ton of extra food and sent it home with us. My parents, my in-laws, and my husband and I are still eating cookies, cupcakes, cake, short ribs, corned beef, dumplings... etc!) Our maitre'de, Jason took great care of us- directing the bridal party as well as his staff and made things run smoothly. My bridal attendant Leslie literally fed me- I never thought I would be one of those brides who doesn't eat! She reapplied my lipstick, bustled my dress, sprayed my hair back into place, sprayed static guard on my train and wrinkle releaser on my veil. She even patted us down with cool cloths when we (my family included) became sweaty from all the dancing. I had no idea I would need all those things but I certainly appreciated it. They brought all the food to our table so we could spend more time celebrating with our guests.

Crystal Plaza pulled out all the stops and provided us with the best service we could ever dream of on our wedding day and made us, our families, and our friends extremely happy. Thank you!

My husband I got married January 15, 2011 at The Crystal Plaza. We live in Miami, Florida and decided to give up the beautiful weather in January to have our wedding at the most beautiful venue. We fell in love from the moment we saw the place. The entrance and outside area are breathtaking. We loved the feeling of the inside and especially loved the staff. Allan and his team were beyond amazing and professional. They eliminated every stress a bride and groom may have. Our wedding was way beyond our expectations and anything we can ever dream of. The cocktail hour was a huge hit. I still have people contacting me telling me they have never in all of the weddings they have been to experienced a party like this. The food was delicious and we especially loved the sweet touch Allan surprised us with for dessert. All I had to do was mention I loved coconut cake and he made it his business to add mini coconut cakes to everyone's dessert platter. The service is the best I have ever seen I cannot find one thing wrong or that I would've changed. I would highly encourage any bride and groom looking at this venue to do it!!! It will be everything you want and more it was our fairytale wedding and we are so happy:)

It is difficult to put into words the unbelievable feelings that a wedding at the Crystal Plaza will leave you with. I knew that they had a reputation for being the best around, but my wedding day was beyond what I anticipated and expected. From our first meeting with Fred, the told us he would blow us away, and he went beyond our expectations. From what we were told the cocktail hour was unbelievable, we unfortunately missed it becasue we did not see each other prior to the ceremony so pictures and bustling my dress took up a lot of time. My wedding cake came out amazing, exactly like the picture that I provided them with.
The service provided from the time I arrived from the lovely woman, LeAnne at the coat check, to the waiter who took his suspenders off his body and gave them to my husband becasue his pants were too big, to Leslie, my attendant who was there to touch up my lipstick, blot my face, wipe us down with cold towels and and one point when my bustle came loose, behind me with needlenose pliers fixing my dress, and of course Nella, the Maitre D, who made sure the whole night ran flawlessly. The service was like nothing I have ever experienced. I really felt like I was treated like royalty or a celebrity for the day!
Overall, the experience, service, and reputation of the Crystal Plaza will amaze you and surpass all expectations. There was not one thing I had to worry about on my wedding day because of their knowledgable staff who will go above and beyond to make your wedding day spectacular. By far, choosing the Crystal Plaza was the best decision we could have made. I just hope I get invited to a wedding there soon so I can experience everything that they have to offer and enjoy it from a guest's perspective.
Thank you Crystal Plaza, for truely being phenomenal!

Crystal Plaza was unbelievable. We had a fairy tale wedding. The venue is stunning, both indoors and outdoors. The service is impeccable (if you have the opportunity to select your wedding attendant for the day, ask for Claudia. She has quickly become a legend in my family for how unbelievably well she took care of us that day). All our guests raved about the food. The wedding exceeded my wildest expectations.

We were working with a relatively short time frame, and Fred (the banquet director) helped us find a florist, photographer, and band. His choices were all perfect.

I cannot say enough great things about working with the Crystal Plaza- our experience-- and our guests' experience-- was AMAZING.

We had our wedding at The Crystal Plaza in October of 2010. A little time has passed since then and I must say myself, my family, and every last one of our guests is still to this day in absolute awe of the amazingness of this venue. People still tell us that our wedding at Crystal Plaza was the best they have ever been to, and that means a lot when you have a "Russian Style" wedding with mostly Russian guests as we did (they arent very easy to please). When Fred, Nella, and the team at Crystal Plaza set up our affair, all the stops were pulled out. Saying that they went above and beyond would be an undersatement. We even had many pleasant, unexpected suprises that we didnt know where part of our affair. The staff at Crystal Plaza really knows how to take care of their guests. From the food, to the service, to the beauty, and experience in managing a crazy day like that, I have to say I would never consider any venue that can come close to the way we were taken care of at The Crystal Plaza.

I am quite disappointed with one of the poor reviews here, particularly the Russian affair. If you would have brought the bottles yourself, take them home, thats fine. But I am sure you did not. The food, how you can say that the food was anything less than exceptional is beyond me. If you want buttery pelmeni go to Brighton Beach, but I am sure the Crystal Plaza can make that happen if you so desire. You perhaps need to re-read your contract. I can guarantee that many of the more common "Russian venues" would have a serious lesson to learn from the skill, quality and first class delivery of everything that the Crystal Plaza team can do. I can't imagine having another joyous occassion at any other place than The Crystal Plaza.

From the minute we first Barry a year before the wedding, until the last guest left the building, the Crystal Plaza and their employee’s did a perfect job! Barry always quickly responded to our million questions. We found him to be a trustworthy and honest person. At the day of the wedding, our maitre d was Jason, he was very helpful during the day. The entire staff was extremely attentive and they were very friendly. One of Jason’s assistants was Leslie, she was fantastic! Before the ceremony, she actually fed us! They made us feel like a king and queen. She helped bustle the wedding dress several times. Everyone thought the food was great! We would highly recommend the Crystal Plaza to anyone.

The Crystal Plaza is by far the best wedding venue!! Their professionalism, service, and willingness to go above and beyond is exceptional. Fred and Allen were very accommodating and handled special requests and even added a few surprises the day of the wedding that made our event even better. They have an ability to make you feel so important and the attention to detail is immeasurable. Leslie, the bridal attendant went so far as to standing in mud to hold my gown up so it would not get ruined while outside taking photos. Nella was right there when I needed her without my asking specifically for something, she was already there with it, like she read my mind. At one point towards the end of the night, I was so hot from dancing, she immediately came over with a cold, wet cloth to cool me off! Aside from service, the food was absolutely amazing! So many of our guests were amazed at the quality and amount of food that they served. Everything was fresh and prepared with such an attention to detail. I could not have imagined nor expected the exceptional quality of service and great food that came with booking the Crystal Plaza. Look no further!!

Crystal Plaza went above and beyond my expectations, which were very high to begin with. The staff is so experienced and professional, that I did not have to worry about a thing on my day. My maitre-d, Nella, was absolutely amazing the entire night. She always knew what I wanted without me even having to ask. She even brought cool towels to my husband and I when she saw we were getting hot dancing. She took care of everything the whole night, along with the many butlers that were there to assist us. I never had to ask anyone for a drink because it was always there before I finished. The cake, food, ice sculptures, ect. were perfect! All of our guests could not stop raving about the food and service. Highly recommend this venue to anyone that wants the perfect wedding!

The Crystal Plaza made the planning of my wedding a breeze. They were always there to answer questions and solve any problem that came up. Allan, the owner, took on the responsibility of being the point person for all of my other vendors, the minute we got there on the day of the wedding we were taken excellent care of. They had butlers/attendants following me (the bride), the groom, and our parents, to make sure everything was perfect, and it was. I would highly highly recommend them.

WHen I think about the beauty that was my wedding receptionI get tears in my eyes. Crystal Plaza was so amazing. I was married on 10/12/2008 and my guests still rave about it. The were so accomadating and generous with us. They made every moment of the day perfect. Whatever I asked for during the preparation, I received. I was completely amazed when I walked in and saw the tiny crystals I bought for around my centerpieces had all be hand placed Face up in a beautiful design. The details were all cared for. The dessert hour was unreal, 100s of desserts. I asked simply for a few of them be replaced with sugar free cakes for my diabetic guests. What I got was an entire table of choices for their dietairy needs! My husband was given a private stock of his favorite scotch to enjoy with his new father-in-law during the wedding and while enjoying the hand rolled cigars being made during the dessert hour. We wanted for nothing. Our private valets were on hand every moment to make sure we never had to do anything for ourselves. WE felt like a King and queen. The food was outrageous. It in no way tasted like catered food. IT was flavorful, unique and elegant. My guests had 6 different courses to choose from. The cocktail hour had more stations and food options than I have ever seen in my life. I have had brides come to me and tell me directly that I set the bar very high for them now that they are planning their own weddings. I would have my wedding there a 1000 times more!

Quite a few things went wrong on my wedding day - rain, struggles with my photographer, I even forgot my underwear..... but the Crystal Plaza is on of my two vendors which gets a stellar review. Even in the middle of my throwdown stomping tantrum about the weather, they were patient and kind. Never crass or crude with the delicate bride. Vinny, my personal attendant for the day, could not have been better. When I started to stress, he sensed it and quietly held his tray out with my drink, with a single straw so I wouldn't mess my lipstick. They were wonderful. They put up with me. They made me laugh in the middle of my bridezilla moments. There was a cancellation, so we got an even better price by moving our date just one week. My parents and friends said it was the most beautiful wedding they have ever been to. Every step of the way, they were there for me, they communicated with me. And even though I'm sure they see similar things every single weekend, they made me feel like I was the only bride ever there. Go with the Crystal Plaza and you won't be disappointed.

He truly acted as a wedding planner!!!! If any bride is in question on weather to have their wedding here, you MUST! My husband and I had the best night with surprises all around. Food, drinks... everything was top of the line. The cocktail hour was ridiculous and the after party even better!
If you do book, ask for Nella to be your maitre de. SHE IS AMAZING.

I can not say enough positive things about Crystal Plaza. Every single element of our day exceeded my expectations. The venue is beautiful, the food is phenomenal, but it is the staff that really makes this place so special. They only cater to one event at a time, and I was surrounded by no less than 4 event managers throughout the day. They coordinated all the events and seamlessly moved the wedding party from one thing to the next. I was always being greeted by someone asking if I needed anything, giving me champagne (with a straw!) or a cold glass of water just when I needed it. They were just as attentive to our parents and the bridesmaids and groomsmen. I simply didn't have to think about - much less worry about - anything that day.

Your guests will be impressed with the little details: white-gloved servers, an outrageous amount of food, and a beautiful setting. This was, by far, the best wedding-related decision we made. I would recommend Crystal Plaza to any bride!

Barry at the Crystal was amazing. He was thorough and caring, detail oriented and flexible. He gave us everything you could ever imagine and more. The food was AMAZING, the service 5 STAR, and the value for cost was extremely high. We had the entire mansion, the staff were all friendly and helpful at all times. They went out of their way to make our day extraordinary.

Our wedding day went off without a hitch. We sat back and relaxed as they took care of everything. If there was any problem - we certainly did not have a clue. The bartenders are wonder, as are the chefs and servers. That day - they were part of the family! The planners and Men In Black did such a wonderful job at directing us during the ceremony and setting things up so seamlessly that not one guest could see any detail out of place. I hope to get remarried here in 24 years!

My husband and I were married 8/4/07 at the Crystal Plaza and STILL have dreams about our fairy tale wedding!!!
From the moment we walked in the magical double glass doors to start getting dressed till the car was packed for us to leave we were treated like royalty!
Nella ran our 25 person procession like clock-work, Fred created a menu that my friends still talk about and we even had our own personal butlers following us around all night to give us cold towels to blot our face from dancing or touch up my lipstick.
I need to back to the food for a moment- we have NEVER had- and still have not had such delicious, elegant, beautifully presented h'ordeuvres, dinner and dessets!
I had the Crystal do my cake and they made my vision become reality.
We danced the night away in the beautifully decorated Victorian ballroom after we were married in the most romantic ceremony in the round.
The Crystal Plaza was the easiest and most PERFECT decision we made!!!

Excellent place for a wedding to this day, guests are still raving about the food. Not only is the food top notch, they serve a TON of food, everyone went home very happy & full. Afterall, it's the food that everyone remembers the most. I actually had the ceremony and reception here, ceremonies can be held @ Crystal Plaza with no extra charge which is very convenient for me and my guests. You have the option of having the ceremony either indoors or outdoors depending on the weather. I had mine outdoors and it was BEAUTIFUL. Crystal Plaza caters only to one wedding at a time so you don't have to worry about other wedding parties intruding your wedding. The wedding cake is also provided by Crystal Plaza which is also great because it was one less thing I had to think about. I don't love the decor so much it's Victorian style, but othewise, I highly recommend this place it's AMAZING.

I cannot say enough wonderful things about my entire experience with the Crystal Plaza. To say they threw my dream wedding would be an understatement. The food was incredible, the staff was SO attentive and knew what I needed before I even asked for anything, the decorations were so beautiful that I didn't even need centerpieces. Our family and friends could not say enough about how much fun our reception was.

We had our wedding at the Crystal Plaza on Memorial Day. We were initially hesitant to look at the Crystal Plaza due to what we knew of their costs, however if your event is any time other than Saturday night in peak wedding season, the value is at least as good if not better than other options you will find. We could not have been happier with the entire experience-- from when we first met with Barry, when there was butlered service to bring coffee/tea/etc., to after the event, when Barry is still incredibly responsive to questions about the brand of champagne served, etc. Many people might be scared off by the fact that they do not do tastings, and while I agree I would have preferred to have one, I could not praise the food highly enough. Not only was it incredibly plentiful, but everything was delicious! our guests could not stop telling us how good everything was, and how amazed they were at the variety, especially during the cocktail hour. Barry was as accommodating as he could be, allowing us to come earlier in the day than he would have preferred so we could start pictures, giving guidance in picking the menu without being overly aggressive, and doing small things to make our day extra special. the venue itself is one of the most beautiful in the area, and incredibly well maintained. After the ceremony, they had an amazing spread set up for my husband and me in the bridal suite, with samples of most of what was in the cocktail hour waiting for us, knowing we wouldn't get to the food when we joined the party (although I wish we had gotten some of the guacamole!) Nina, my bridal attendant, was also especially wonderful. She was very attentive to my dress during the pictures, kept my lipstick in her pocket, and during the reception, more than once cooled me down with a cold washcloth on my back and shoulders. The crystal plaza truly goes above and beyond, and we only wish we could have gotten a doggy bag from the cocktail hour!

The first thing I am doing after returning from our honeymoon is writing this review because though I have always known that Crystal Plaza was "the best" and expected an amazing wedding day, I was still blown away at the quality of service and food that we received. EVERYTHING about the CP exceeded our expectations. We have a complicated family situation and I was very concerned about the logistics of the ceremony and reception but everything ran so smoothly, thanks to the organization, professionalism, and thoughtfulness of the staff. They are all AMAZING (I really can't emphasize this enough!). The food is outstanding but any guest could tell you about the food (which they have been raving about since!) , but it was totally the service that made the day perfect for me as a bride... from sewing my bra to my dress minutes before I walked down the aisle, to patting me down with cool towels throughout the day, to serving me food and water as I was dancing, the attendants could not have been more accommodating. The Crystal Plaza is expensive relative to some other venues in the area (though pretty flexible about working with budget constraints) but you are not just paying for the food, you are paying for peace of mind and it is worth it! There is positively no need to hire a wedding coordinator if you book with the CP, they can and will take care of anything and will think of everything before you do. I really have only good things to report and am thrilled with our decision to go with this venue. I can't imagine a more magical place to get married and I hope to someday throw my own children a wedding there too :)

We looked at 5 locations before selecting Crystal Plaza for our wedding. They stood out from day one in service. We felt like we walked into Disney World when we first walked in and was greeted and offered a drink. The amenities and service there stood out from the other venues and they were the best in value. The website does not do its justice because this place is beautiful. The day of my wedding I ran little late and they were still able to keep everything on track. I really felt like a Queen with 2 dedicated staff to help me. Both ladies were amazing. Unlike other brides I did get to eat my dinner because of them. The wedding coordinator from Crystal plaza was amazing as well. They really catered to your needs. They were amazing to work with. My husband and I were very satisfied. I felt like they were family after the wedding was done. They treated us very well.

I had my wedding at the Crystal Plaza, and people can't stop talking about it. "top notch" were their words. They treat you like royalty, wait on you hand and foot, and basically know what you need before you ask for it. They even came over to my husband and I on the dance floor to cool us off with wet cloths!

Although I have to admit that Crystal Plaza is VERY pricey, you definitely get what you pay for! If you're looking for a reception site that will cater to your every need and treat you, your new spouse, and both sets of parents like royalty, this is the site to choose! The 6 of us (myself, my husband, my parents, and his parents), were attended to at every second of the event. The guests were offered seconds of their main courses, something that I have never seen at other reception sites, and the food was absolutely amazing! The wedding cake was also absolutely beautiful- and it was included in the price! The only reason why I gave Crystal Plaza a 4.5 for flexibility is because myself and my bridal party showed up a little late and I requested that the cocktail hour be extended a bit. They gladly extended it 30 minutes, but shortened, and even rushed, the remainder of the reception. I understand that I only paid for 5 hours, but my photographer told me that most other places would have still added on the time at the end. He even questioned the matri'd as to if they would be giving me the extra time at the end and he responed, "No, we're getting out of here at 11:30." That's the only part that I was upset with (fortunately I wasn't told this until 2 months later). I feel like, for the price I paid, they could have been a bit more flexible and understanding. All in all, you get what you pay for, and at Crystal Plaza you will definitely get impeccable service and food!

They care about every detail, and they are very patient with any questions/concerns you may have. Third, the food was out of this world!! My father in law, who always complains about food, had no complaints whatsoever. Overall, the place is OUTSTANDING and worth every penny.

We couldn't have picked a better location for our reception. From our first visit to the site, to working with the staff before the big day, to the day of, they were professional, accomodating and helpful. Since they only have 1 wedding at a time, all atention is on your event. The only thing you miss out on is a tasting of the food, but they go based on reputation and it is worth it. We still hear compliments on the food 2 years later!

The staff was awesome, I diedn't worry about a trhing the entire evening!

I had a very hard day on my wedding day due to family dynamics. The staff at the Crystal Plaza were absolutely wonderful before the wedding and on the day of the wedding. They did their best to reduce the stress of a very tense situation. I have many regrets from my wedding day, but choosing the Crystal Plaza as the venue was definitely not one of them. They make you feel very special and always accommodate you to meet every request.

The place is amazing! We received a pretty good deal from them because we were flexible with our dates. Otherwise, I think their prices would have been very steep. The place itself is gorgeous, with its victorian facade and decor. The food was exceptional. I was a little hesitant in the beginning because they don't offer food tasting. But my guests loved everything from the drinks made at the bar, to the food served during cocktail hour, to the actual dinner served, and finally the dessert. The dessert was so amazing. I'm drooling just thinking about it. The cake was gorgeous and delicious, I wish I had remembered to take it home!

What I liked best about this place was the Maitre 'D. He was so helpful and was on top of everything. The wait staff were great too. They even served us shots on the dance floor!

The Crystal Plaza is a gorgeous and more importantly, stress-free place to get married. Although it is on the pricey side (not too bad when comparing it with other venues at the same level, though), when you have your wedding here, all the nice little extras--full smorgasbord, valet parking, open bar, etc.--come standard. So even if you think you are getting a better deal elsewhere, once you add in those extras, chances are you aren't even saving money. Plus, the customer service at the Crystal Plaza is just unreal. A bridal attendant followed me around all day holding my coat, arranging my skirt and bringing me a cup of hot tea after a very cold outdoor photo session (In the gorgeous snow-covered back garden). The food was awesome (we had the kosher caterer) and there were even all these little extras we didn't even ask for--an ice sculpture with our monogram, a full margarita bar during the cocktail hour....our guests were blown away. Everyone at the Crystal Plaza was a pleasure to work with, and the venue itself is one of the most beautiful, intimate and elegant places I've seen.

I have a mixed review. The food and location was a drem come true I really loved my reception venue and they were great until the day of. The following things disspointed me. My wedding cake was supposed to match my colors white & tiffany blue on the day of when I walked into the reception my cake was all BEIGE this did not go with ANYTHING else. I honestly was/am so upset that I don't even want a picture of it in my album. Second thing that disappointed and really upset my husband was we were supposed to get 2 ice sculptures (1 NY Yankees one VERY IMPORTANT ONE), princess style anything like a castle etc) when I got to my cocktail hour they told me the yankee one had broken and the one they did provide me looked nothing princess style it was a huge block of ice with our initials. Final thing was my maitre d left 1/2 way through the reception to her defense there was an emergency at home of sorts and she did tell me matron of honor who did not want to upset me further at the time A replacement maitr d stepped in. So those were the negatives the positives are that the ballroom is amazing. The bar & wait staff were great & the food was outrageous. My guests never knew of the things that had upset me but nonetheless I was upset on my wedding day

Our wedding at Crystal Plaza was the best day of our lives. Everything about this venue was amazing, the food was fabulous and the service was fabulous. Our two criticisms were the cake wasn't what we ordered, it had a different filling, and was disgusting. Also, the fee for children is the same as adults after the age of 7, which is a bit ridiculous, and was only explained a week before our wedding.

After much debate over where I was going to have my wedding I had finally decided on Crystal Plaza based on its beautiful decor. The plates had cost us nearly 260, however we only go 60 dollars worth. We had many guests coming from all over expecting a great meal but received anything but. Not only was the food bad but there was none of it. We were promised an abundance of food overflowing our tables but instead received nothing, guests that were dancing were not even offered any food, we had made an agreement to have the waiters walk around with the main courses so that guests could have as much as they wanted, russian style, the waiters did not even go to more than half the tables and those tables that they did go to weer ones with guests dancing and once the guests did seat themselves the waiters did not come back around to offer them food and plates were taken away so fast that even those few that did receive food did not get into enjoy it. We paid for top shelf bottles, and at the end of the night we were not allowed to take any of it home. Dishes that had been promised to be there were not. I would NOT recommend anyone to do their wedding at the crystal plaza, guests had left our wedding hungry if you want to save yourself the embarrassment do NOT make your wedding here.
