Here it it goes after searching long and hard for my wedding venue I fell in love with EC. Michelle was wonderful she was very attentive and helped me throughout the process so I reserved my room February 8th of 2014 for an April 25,2015 wedding. We reserved the grand ballroom and Parlor ab for the wedding. The parlor room by far has the ugliest walls but we were only going to be in there for 30mins so id manage cuz i wanted to have two separate feels for the ceremony and reception.The hardest part was done right so easy sailing I checked on the venue u several times since then to show my planner and bridesmaids, most recently we visited on Dec 26th. Michelle was a godsend, she helped me find good deals on hotel transportation all the things a bride would need.

Incident 1) the parlor was booked for an event that night and my ceremony (30min) would run into their booking, I was asked to move my time up so they could have time to prep for the next event. Ok no problem they gave me an extra 30min of open bar for being accommodating, im like oh yeah thx!

Incident 2) NO FORGIVING!!!!!
14 weeks before my wedding date Sunday January 11, 2015 I get a call from Anna telling me that my date was double booked and theyre sorry. So sorry that they offered me free chairs and a huppa to move it to ParlorABC, push it back a week, or refund me. The same room that was already booked which is why I moved the ceremony time but now was miraculously open.a room I hated and was nothing like the grandball room. They have made what is suppose to be an amazing experience 100Xs more stressfull and depressing. No bride should go through what I am currently experiencing. All my time, money, hardwork ive spent to ease this wedding along as smooth as possible was shattered with one phone call.

Sincerely,

A date without a venue

Our congregation has repeatedly hosted our 250-person Passover Sender event at European Crystal, so it was the obvious first choice venue for my daughter's Bat Mitzvah celebration. The room was beautiful; the staff helpful, friendly, caring, and involved. We wouldn't hesitate to plan another event at this wonderful venue. Thanks so much! May God bless you and your business!

Recently had my wedding at European Crystal Banquets. Cannot express how satisfied of a customer my wife and I are. Everything we had wanted and more became a reality. The managment was great to work with. No problems, No hassle and more importantly no hidden fees. Everything we had budgeted for a year in advance was the exact amount a year later. This venue is worth you visiting.

Wonderful expeirence we had at European Crystal Banquets. We got married in December of 2012 and have nothing but good things to say about this venue. the staff are all accomodating, the food is phenominal and the venue is so beautiful that we didnt need much to make it look pretty since its already beautiful. Our coordinator was Michelle and she did such a great job. She was so patient with us, helping us every step of the way answering my hundreds of emails. I could not have had a better wedding. Highly reccomend this place!!

I recently had my wedding here in September 2012 and cannot say how great this venue is! My coordinator was Michelle and not only did she help me and guided me every step of the way she also became a good friend of mine. After working with her over a year and communicating non stop from phone and email, I knew we would still keep in touch after my wedding.
The food at my wedding everyone raved about. I chose the filet mignon with chicken christopher. The dessert table was a hit, everyone went for it and ate more than they usuall could, they definitley did not hold back from the dessert table. they really went above and beyond for my wedding. the decor that i picked was like a fairy tale from a magazine. i loved it all. The price I paid for my wedding was a fair deal, if i had this exact same wedding in the city i would have ended up paying double or triple the price. My husband and I had a beautiful day and will always remember our wedding day. Again cannot rave enough about this place, the food, the service, the decor all were outstanding and so happy to of found this place! Highly reccomend this place and Michelle as your coordinator.

I had my reception here almost a year ago. The food and venue are amazing. My biggest problem is their PR.

I recommend combing through the contract by affirming what is agreed upon and how much it will cost. I thought I understood but when it came time to pay the balance of our bill, I owed an extra $1,000 for the plates because they're "winter discount" was misleading; what they said in the contract was not what was told to our faces. We were also promised a soda bar; when we brought this to their attention that night after we'd only had water for an hour, each table was then given a pitcher of flat cola, that was it.

I highly discourage anyone from working with Michelle. She seemed friendly at first but later was unprofessional because she found it was better to argue with my husband and me than attempt to find solutions to problems or disagreements. She also failed to appear for the reception itself and did not call, email, or otherwise notify my husband or me of her absence before or after the wedding. I felt like she took our money then gave us the cold shoulder; it was frustrating and frankly, hurtful.

I have mixed reviews. If you deal with anyone but Michelle, I still say proceed with caution.
