As an engaged couple, the first thing Justin and I did was to try to figure out a venue. The second we walked into The Oakeside Mansion, we knew we found the perfect place for our special day. Beyond being dreamy, classy, rustic and magical, The Mansion is managed by Frungillo Caterers, of whom I cannot say enough wonderful compliments. The food was beyond amazing, their professionalism, flexibility and responsiveness was top notch. The best part of hiring Frungillo Caterers at the Mansion was working with Inez Recio, who was our coordinator, but became our friend throughout the process. Leading up to our wedding day, she helped answer any and all questions I had. On the day of our wedding, she went out of her way to make our dreams come true and make us feel special. I'm such a detailed oriented person and had a very specific vision for how I wanted everything set up, the second I walked in and saw how Inez took the time to set everything up, every detail, it was beyond what I ever dreamed of! Additionally, throughout the night Inez continued to be so attentive and made sure we both had food and drinks the entire event, even during our photo-shoot. She made sure the entire evening ran smoothly and everyone on a timeline, allowing us to be able to enjoy the day without having to be the ones telling our bridal party where to be at what time. It was the best night of our lives and we owe that to Inez!!
All of our guests loved everything about the venue, details and menu. Each of our family members and friends said our event was the most fun they have ever had at a wedding!! I would recommend the The Oakeside Mansion with Frungillo Caters without a single reservation. Inez and her team were simply wonderful and I could not be happier with every detail and moment of our wedding day!

I cannot begin to say what a pleasure it was to work with Frungillo Caterers at The Oakeside Mansion for my special day. Inez Recio was my point of contact and helped make everything happen. Leading up to our big day, she helped answer any and all questions I had. The day of our wedding, she went out of her way to make us both feel special. She assisted with setting everything up and making sure everything ran smoothly throughout the day. As a bride, you want everything to be perfect and Inez made sure of that. She was attentive and made sure we both had food and drinks the entire event. The entire evening ran so smoothly, and if it didn't, we would have never known. Our guests loved everything about the venue, details and menu. Each person had nothing but amazing things to say about the food. I had several guests tell me that our event was the most fun they have ever had at a wedding and I owe that to Inez and her team.

If you are looking for a unique, beautiful venue with amazing staff, please look into having your event at The Oakeside Mansion in Bloomfield, NJ. I cannot begin to thank every staff member that works there on how professional and courteous they are. They were amazing and I could not be happier with the way our special day turned out!

I, like many of the other families/couples who had their ceremonies at Oakeside Manor, can't say enough good things about Frungillo Caterers and their stellar staff. Inez was the on site wedding coordinator for my daughter's and [now] son-in-law's beautiful wedding. As fate would have it, the day turned out to be really rainy, so we had to switch the outdoor plans indoors to the tent where the reception was going to be held. I can't believe how quickly their staff removed the tables and set the scene for a beautiful wedding - and then, in the space of an hour when everyone was enjoying music, cocktails and appetizers in the mansion - recreated a beautifully-set reception space for our wedding guests. In addition, because my daughter/son-in-law live in New Orleans, they wanted a NOLA-themed wedding, so Inez worked with the Second Line band we hired to map out the route they could take to lead guests from the wedding/reception tent and into and around the mansion. And the MANSION - a warm, welcoming, stunning house where we were able to add our family pictures to all the mantels and the piano so that it felt as if we were holding the festivities in our very own home. A word about the bartending staff: Funny, friendly, accommodating -- and they mixed up some amazing libations for everyone! As the frazzled mother of the bride, I will share that every time I looked at Inez, and she told me "Everything will be beautiful," I knew it would be. And it absolutely was.

Frungillo Caterers did a fabulous job with my wedding. The food was great, the cake was delicious and all with service and a smile. I would highly recommend Frungillo for a wedding or for any event! I would also like to suggest working with Inez Recio! She, without a doubt, made my special day a success!! What a professional with top notch experience and doesn't miss a beat. I honestly don't know what I would have done without her. If you have the pleasure to work with her, expect nothing but greatness. :-)

When looking for a caterer do not simply look at the initial cost. (this is what i originally did!) Many caterers do not include some services and items in their initial estimate and then add them later making the overall cost much more expensive then they originally appeared. Frungillos included absolutely everything. In addition, John Fucci worked tirelessly to let us know what we should be doing and helped us with absolutely every step of the process. The planning could have been very stressful but thanks to John it was not. Our wedding was absolutely amazing. Every single person raved about the food, the service, the presentation, the staff and the venue. People kept telling me that it was the "wedding of the century"! This was thanks to John from Frungillos and my amazing event planner/decorator who worked together like a well oiled machine to make our day perfect. There is not a single thing that could have been done better. I HIGHLY recommend Frungillos and, in particular, John Fucci.

I only have positive things to say about my experience with Frungillo Caterers! From the very first time I met with John, I felt completely confident that he would be able to give us the wedding we were looking for. Our venue was the Inn at Millrace Pond which was rustic and lovely. John took care of every detail from the set up of ceremony to the cake for the reception and arranged a beautiful day for us in less than 4 months! The food was delicious. The maitre d' Angel, was friendly and knew exactly what he was doing. He was on site all day running around, making sure each aspect of the event was going smoothly and even dealing with my last minute seating changes. The servers were so prompt, professional and friendly. Our server, Sara, made sure that every time I took a sip from my glass it was refilled so I never even had to think about it. I could go on and on about this staff and how wonderful they all are! I would highly recommend working with them.

John Fucci has been our main point of contact. He recommended the Conservatory to me as I was trying to make appointments to visit other Frungillo locations. I'll admit, I was a little hesitant because there wasn't too much information available online about the Conservatory. Albeit, we scheduled an appointment for a tour, and after visiting a few other disappointing venues, we instantly fell in love the second we stepped on the grounds. John walked us through every room and option. He walked us through the menus and ways we could accommodate my fiance's Portuguese family in regards to essentially customizing a menu. My fiancé and I left the site so happy. When it was turn to go to the monthly food tastings, everything was customized with our names, it was private, beautiful and delicious. Again, John walked us through everything and we felt at ease. Although our wedding is still 10 months away, we feel so confident that John has everything under control. We honestly couldn't have picked a better situation, caterer, or reception site. So excited for our special day!

The setting was just lovely! The outdoor ceremony started with a few drops of rain, during which the staff quickly brought out umbrellas for the String Quartet! Inez, our maitre d, took excellent care of not only the bride and groom's needs but also both sets of parents. Inez made sure our glasses were full and both cocktail hour and reception food was delivered directly to us. No time had to be taken away from the festivities to go and get food. This was an unexpected treat and I must say made us enjoy the day even more. Inez also orchestrated the entire day's schedule and timing perfectly, communicating with the band and photographer directly so that that we didn't feel rushed, overwhelmed or having missed something. The food was all delicious and the wait staff cheerful and helpful. Everything we had provided by the way of decorations were all placed exactly as we had envisioned - table decorations, signage, pictures, favors, candles - we didn't have to set up a thing! The staff set it all up and then also collected it all back up again at the end of the night. We also provided our own cake table instead of the traditional wedding cake and they made wonderful accomodation for it. Every detail was just perfect and we thank the Oakeside, Inez and the staff of Frungillo's for their attentiveness to detail, helpful attitude and delicious food that made it just the perfect day for all! I am still getting notes and messages from guests who say it was the BEST wedding they had ever been to.

My wife and I were just married at Oakeside Mansion on 5/20/16. We had a perfect weather day which only enhanced all of the wonderful and stress free happenings throughout our day. Frungillo Caterers did a splendid job with the food and our signature drink. Inez was our maitre d' and she was incredibly calm, helpful and easy to work with. She communicated with us on an ongoing basis months leading up to our big day. She was very attentive and refilled our drinks when needed and kept us on the timeline I wanted. If anything did go wrong that night, we certainly were unaware of it. We had a great time and would love to relive it.

The decoration set up and reception area was exactly as we pictured it. Our vision of our perfect day was definitely embodied through Frungillo Caterers and all of the staff that were working. Thank you again!!
