Glen Oak was a beautiful venue. We got married in a gazebo on the grounds, which are immaculately kept. The coordinator there, Janet, is a wonderful lady. She responded quickly and was extremely knowledgeable. She has a list of vendors she recommends if her clients aren't sure for certain things (such as a DJ). During our wedding, Janet was always around, making sure things go off without a hitch. She came around to my husband and I and asked how everything was, and then proceeded to all the tables. The food was delicious. We chose buffet over a sit down dinner, and the buffet was possibly the best we've ever had. This venue is definitely a great one.

The woman that I worked with at Glen Oak was extremely accommodating and helpful. She supported us every step of the way!

I recently had my wedding at Glen Oak and I couldn't be more thrilled with how the whole day went. I originally wanted my wedding somewhere along the water. When I checked out Glen Oak's location, I loved the inside, but I wasn't thrilled with getting married on a golf course. However - the day turned out beautiful. With a couple added touches (I had violin players and beautiful flower arrangements) the ceremony was absolutely gorgeous. I have been to many weddings where the food comes out slow and cold - NOT glen oak! I offered the steak & chicken combo, salmon and vegetarian options. I had the salmon, which were actually 2 huge pieces, spring vegetable mix, and potatoes. It was wonderful and so many people enjoyed it. My hubby had the steak & chicken and really liked it too - everyone commented on the food and how great it was. Janet was on top of things and stayed until everyone ate and was satisfied! Some reviews I read about her not being accommodating I can understand though, but I don't believe it's her, it's just the location. There were a few things I inquired about - hanging lights on the balcony, doing sparklers or floating lanterns, and unfortunately we weren't able to. My advice to all brides - before you book a venue make sure you ask all questions prior to. If there's something you want to do, make sure that location will allow it. Other than that, I HIGHLY recommend this place. You can't beat the price and the service and quality is simply outstanding!

We had our wedding at Glen Oak and it was wonderful, we wanted the outdoor feel where people can go in and out as they please. Food was delicious and a gorgeous view of the golf course. Janet was great to work with and very patient with me. I would recommend it to brides/grooms.

Glen Oak was an absolutely beautiful venue, and my wife and I would not change anything about the day. The only problem that we had was working with the woman in charge, Janet Ciminelli. Janet seems more than accommodating when you first meet with her and you get the sense that she will really go the extra mile. After the first payment is in, all of this changes. By no means did she sabotage our wedding, however, she was not the easiest to work with. When we wanted something done a certain way and we brought it up to her, she would give us some pushback as to why it couldn't be done that way. This would go on for a short period of time and eventually she would say that she would see what she could do. With all of the stress of wedding planning and the amount that you pay the venue, the venue should be more than willing to work with you. There are worse problems that we could've had, however, these problems with her were pretty annoying. Other than Janet, the service staff were terrific and the food was outstanding.

If it wasn't for the food being delicious and the venue being very beautiful - scenery wise I would NOT recommned this Venue. My main problem was with the wedding coordinator Janet Cimenilli. At first she seemed great - responding to emails quickly, really seeming like she cared about you and your wedding. However, as soon as she received the last payment - two days prior to the wedding at the rehearsal, it was like she was already moved onto the next person she was working with. We met with her at the rehearsal to discuss how everything would go. She claimed she was paying attention, however the day of the wedding, my centerpieces were all wrong. She did nothing to help correct it, even after she asked me if she did something wrong and I told her that she did. So my girls and I had to spend 30 mintues changing it to the right way. She was incredibly rude to my parents, who came in earlier that day to drop off the cake and pies. She refused to refrigerate any of the pies or cake. She had no idea of how my ceremony was to go. I had to actually tell the girls when to walk out and cue the DJ for my music. These are things that a bride should NOT have to deal with or worry about on her wedding day! Lastly, Glen Oak MAKES you have 125 mininum. Fine no big deal, except the fact that if you do not meet 125 they refuse to give you a few take home dinners. A friend of mine who is in the catering business addressed this with Janet and in the end Janet gave us "6 dinners" however when Janet came to tell me this she was incredibly rude about it making it a point to say that "we never do this". Just incredibly unprofessional about how she went about the whole day. So if you do end up using Glen Oak be mindful that you should have everything written down about specific instructions but still know that there will be mistakes made and you will most likely have to fix them yourself.

Glen Oak provided a beautiful backdrop for what was basically a perfect day. The facility was wonderful, the staff attentive and the food delicious. The price was very competitive with the local facilities. Janet was a dream to work with. She was very quick to return my calls and answer my questions, she was very accommodating with my needs and helped to put me at ease when there were problems. She checked in with me several times during the night to make sure that I was ok. I had a great experience here, the availability of the outdoor patio for dancing and relaxing was the cherry on top of a wonderful venue. Very easy to work with!

I recently had my wedding reception at Glen Oak (8/2013) and worked with Janet. She was an absolute pleasure to work with. She was very organized, always responded in a timely manner, accommodated all my needs and even did damage control when I had an unexpected issue arise. All of my guest commented on how beautiful the venue was and how delicious the food tasted!!! We had the salmon, which was a huge filet, and the combination plate (chkn &stk). The servers were also absolutely fabulous, by making sure my guest and I were completely satisfied. Theres nothing more I could have asked for than great food and great service! I am so happy we picked Glen Oak and we will definitely use them for our next big event!

Words cannot even describe how amazing our wedding was at Glen Oak! Everything went perfect and we owe it all to Janet and her staff. Janet made it a point to greet us when we arrived and made sure she said goodnight. She was extremely caring and catered to our needs. The staff were amazing and always asked if we needed anything. They packed up all our centerpieces neatly and everything else that we needed to take. We were so grateful. Every one of our guests told us how amazing the food was and how they had a great time!! I can't wait to have another event here and would highly recommend this venue. Thank you so much Janet and staff!! Thanks for adding to our special day!!!!
