I had my wedding at Il Tulipano and I could not be happier with our decision. It was the first place we looked and even though we saw two other places after, we knew that Il Tulipano was the perfect place for us. Everyone is still raving about the food and the service. My mother-in-law attended a wedding there as a guest just a few weeks after ours, and the staff remembered exactly who she was. Everybody we worked with always made us feel welcome and were always around to answer any questions we had. I highly recommend this venue to anyone who is searching for the perfect place to get married!

I can't say enough about Il Tulipano, my husband & I had our wedding here this past August 16th, it was the best decision we made. I had found Il Tulipano on a whim when I first got engaged online and I knew it was going to be the venue we chose before even meeting anyone or seeing it in person (I had a gut feeling about it ), so I called to make an apt and got Donald on the phone, when we first met Donald that day we toured the grounds he made us all feel like family that very moment and it was everything I imagined and more in person. The whole duration of the year prior to the wedding was the best time of my life leading up to this, Donald did everything possible leading up to this day to make our day perfect and when I tell you our wedding day was perfect in every way, it was . Thea and Carol that day were my two angels they made sure I had everything needed and helped with anything you could think of. The beauty, elegance, class, food, and the TRADITION are Il Tulipano. Our guests are still raving saying it was the best wedding they ever attended and the food was amazing. It was everything and more to get married here. If you want exceptional food, service and beauty you have all 3 when you book Il Tulipano. If I ever need to book another event they will be my number one always! So thank you to everyone there, especially my Donald for the best day of my life, it truly was dream come true that I will never forget and I will never forget each and everyone of you there!

What an experience to have a wedding at Il Tulipano!! From the moment we began our planning, to the actual booking, and working out all the details with Donald before the big day; we were so happy overall with the quality of service, professionalism, and attention to detail that Il Tulipano provided us. Every email was answered quickly (and there were many!) and everything was planned to a 'T' with the help of Donald and the staff. On the day of, the bridal attendant and maitre d' were there from the moment we exited the limo to help us get ready for pictures and the ceremony all the way to the end of the night. The entire staff was extremely attentive, realizing our needs before we actually needed them! The venue itself was gorgeous, updated, extremely clean, and perfect for our ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception. All the guests raved about the food; cocktail hour, dinner, and the Viennese hour! I still hear compliments on how great the food was (and how much there was!) and how beautiful the venue was! Overall, the service from Il Tulipano was outstanding and I would recommend it to any bride who is looking for the overall package of quality, beauty, delicious food, and price! Thanks again to all at Il Tulipano for making our wedding day BEAUTIFUL!!

To say that Il Tulipano exceeded expectations would still be selling it short -- it was an absolutely amazing experience to have had my wedding reception at this fabulous establishment. Il Tulipano was our very first venue visit after my now-husband and I got engaged, and although we left that day without booking, we were running back no less than two weeks later to book their next available 2014 date, because after visiting a few other venues, it was clear that Il Tulipano was our number one choice. Jacques, our coordinator, was a dream to work with. He was direct and concise, completely informative and answered any and all questions I threw at him, and super flexible, accommodating and far from pushy. On the day of the wedding, we, along with our guests, were completely blown away by their extensive cocktail hour and excellent service, which carried on through dinner and the rest of the night. We still have guests telling us how they were so impressed by the top-quality service they received from the staff. From small details like how glasses were always filled and how plates were covered so as to keep food warm while the guests were up dancing or at the photo booth, to the delicious food and beautiful venue itself, people are still telling us what an amazing time they had at our wedding. In addition, my wedding attendant and maitre d' were excellent and attentive to my husband and me, and made sure we were able to eat. Our friends especially enjoyed the extensive bar and friendly bartenders. From start to finish, Il Tulipano truly made our wedding a memorable night and an unforgettable experience.

My daughter's recent wedding at Il Tulipano was fantastic! The food was incredibly tasty-everything was excellent. The staff is extremely efficient and so attentive. We had many guests from across the country and so many remarked that they had never been to a wedding like this. We were able to take full advantage of the piazza as the weather was a perfect June day. Everyone is so professional yet warm and caring to make the day Perfect for the bride.

EVERYONE SHOULD GET MARRIED AT IL TULIPANO! We fell in love with the venue from the first time we visited it. The ballroom is elegant and beautiful without being gaudy (like many of the newer venues in NJ). Our guests could not stop talking about the food. We are still receiving compliments weeks after the wedding. It rained on and off on our wedding day and it did not phase us for a second. We had originally planned to have our cocktail hour inside and outside. With the rain, we had it inside only. There was PLENTY of room for our 180 guests to walk around and find seats to eat. The food was constantly being replenished and the displays were stunning. We were waited on hand and foot and the night was a dream come true. We worked with Greg, Jr who was always patient answering any questions we had. We hope we one day get invited back to il Tulipano as guests to a wedding so we can enjoy it all over again!

I recently got married and had my reception at il Tulipano. I have no words that can describe how wonderful this venue is and all of the people that work there. Everything was perfect. Perfect! From the day we met Jacque my husband and I knew that this was the where we wanted our wedding. They really get to know us as a couple and made sure everything was exactly the way we wanted it. All of the staff the day of the event were so attentive without being in the way, everyone complimented us on how wonderful everything and everyone was. Our guests are still talking about the food - there was so much and everyone said this was the one wedding where they cleaned their plates! The Viennese hour was amazing too, people are still talking about that as well. We got such beautiful pictures inside and outside. The people were so easy to work with and really made us feel like royalty. I'm sad it's over! Thank you Jacque and everyone at il Tulipano for giving us the wedding of our dreams :)

From the moment I entered il Tulipano, I knew it was the venue for my dream wedding. Donald greeted me with the biggest smile and made me feel like family right from the start during our first meeting. I didn't take my fiancé and I long to decide that this was the place to start our life together. After booking our event, we absolutely loved being invited a full cocktail and Venetian hour tasting. Donald was always available to assist me whether it was by meeting face to face, by email, and on the phone. Carol was our Mart'd and she was amazing that day and night. Veronica was my bridal attendant and I was so impressed by her attentiveness to my needs as a bride. She knew what I needed before I even realized I needed it! It has been almost three weeks since our wedding and our families and friends are still raving about the food and service. My fiancé and I are still showing the "newlywed glow" and are constantly reminiscing that night. We highly recommend il Tulipano for any special event!

I had my reception at Il Tulipano in April 2014 and it exceeded my expectations x 1000. My husband and I, along with 120 of our family and friends, enjoyed every second of our reception. Everything was beautiful and absolutely perfect. I was treated like a princess and the staff was available for all my needs. The food was AMAZING. Not a single guest had anything bad to say about the food or venue in general. I was planning a NJ wedding from Virginia and Il Tulipano helped with the added stress and anxiety by paying attention to details and helping me feel at ease. I would recommend Il Tulipano to anyone for any function.

Words cannot express how on the money this place was. This was my first ( and only ) wedding and there sure are alot of things that come up. The bridal attendant and maitre'd were out of this world. I could not even lose them if I tried. They tailed me to make sure I always had a drink in my hand, or even before I would ask them a question they knew what I was going to say and had it taken care of.

Now for the food! We did the open buffet, which was spread out all over the room and did not back up at all and no one waited in a line! this was their idea and so many people had said how this was the only wedding they went to where they did not wait in line.

The vietenesse hour was just incredible. I saw people with smiles on their faces ear to ear walking out of that room with popcorn, gellato's, and cotton candy. It was truly the best day of my life and I owe alot of it to the staff @ IL Tulipano.

When people tell me it was the best food they have had ever at a wedding, and some even said in their life it just makes me feel good. We are so pleased with our choice of them!

We couldn't have asked for a better wedding. The planning process was made simple by the fact that the staff was very responsive whenever we had questions and accommodated all of our requests. We had a small hiccup at one of our final planning meetings, but from then on, the owner Greg Jr. handled our wedding personally and promised everything would be perfect. He was been there on the night of our event and Tulipano definitely delivered!

The food was incredible, and abundant! We did a tasting at Rare, their partner restaurant, and everything we tasted was excellent. Of course we figured they'd make it perfect for us at the tasting, but maybe the quality wouldn't be as good when cooking for 150 people, but no! All of our guests couldn't stop talking about the food. Several of our guests lamented that they wish they had more time and more room to try everything just during the cocktail hour. We opted for the Viennese hour as well and were so glad we did. It was a great surprise for our guests to have an hour of ice cream, cakes, cookies, cotton candy, chocolate fountain, and other sweets to finish off the night. Even the wedding cake was excellent, not that anyone had room left! They incorporated all of our design requests and made us a beautiful cake.

On to the decor- the room for the ceremony (ours was indoor) was beautiful, surrounded by arched windows. The cocktail hour area was very large, so no one felt cramped or find it hard to get seating. The reception room was gorgeous and uplit in the color of our choice.

Service was excellent. None of our guests went wanting. Our older guests commented that you just don't see that kind of service anymore, and were very impressed that every time they left the table, they returned to find their napkins neatly folded. My bridal attendant was attentive and very helpful, I never had to carry anything or try to pull out my own chair!

Excellent is all I can say. Tulipano helped us pull off our dream wedding!

He also takes the time to go over all of the details. The grounds at il Tulipano are absolutely gorgeous and quite picturesque. The inside is just as beautiful! The food is out of this world! They provide an elaborate cocktail hour and everything is delicious, including their dinner. Their Viennese hour has so many options for dessert. They have an on-sight baker who was able to duplicate a picture of a cake that I found and it came out great. In addition to the amazing food, the staff there is so friendly and the bridal attendant Thea is so sweet and got us everything we needed. Our guests are still talking about the service and the food at our wedding! My husband and I can not express enough about our experience there and wish we could do it all over again. It was the best day of our lives and everything about Il Tulipano was remarkable. We hope we get to experience another wedding there. Thank you Il Tulipano!! ~Anjelle and Joseph Rullis~

The venue was beautiful and everything came out perfect! We were originally concerned about the food since you don't have tasting before the wedding, and my in-laws are Portuguese so the amount of food is definitely important. The food is exceptional and even the Portuguese are still talking about it today! the maitre D and bridal assistant were both great and catered to my every need!

Pure amazement! Loved every minute of the reception and cocktail hour. Amazing food, great atmosphere and overall total professionalism. Greg Jr is awesome and was so accommodating up until the last minute.

We had attended a wedding at il Tulipano 2 years ago and when we got engaged they were the first place we visited and the place we booked.

I wanted a venue where we would be the only wedding and where I knew the food was awesome.
The grounds are beautiful, we took all of our pictures there. The bridal attendant was great.

Our guests are still bragging about the night. Tulipano did a great job and I highly recommend them for a wedding.

Would not change a thing - it was the perfect day ! Thank you Greg and everyone at il Tulipano!!

Il Tulipano exceeded our expectations in every way. The food was absolute top quality with many guests commenting how it was the best food they ever had at a wedding. The service was impeccable; everything was served hot and efficiently. The grounds were gorgeous and beautifully manicured; the pictures taken in the gardens were stunning. The uplighting they provide as part of your package added a warm glow to the atmosphere. The staff at Il Tulipano were always very friendly and accomodating. We worked with Donald who guided us with his expertise in wedding planning and had a great sense of humor to help keep the stress levels down. We highly recommend Il Tulipano for any formal event.

Oh my goodness. My wedding was the easiest most amazing thing that has ever occurred for me. Alyssa and the staff at il Tulipano were all so helpful and amazing. When we had a question, they had an answer. If we had a problem, they fixed it immediately. Working with them, there was absolutely no reason for a bride to turn into bridezilla. The ceremony spot was gorgeous, however it rained so we had to do it inside but it was still beautiful!!!! If I could get married over and over I would choose il Tulipano for everything. The food? holy cow, you have never seen so much food in your life!!! and it was all delicious. the service was amazing and the reception hall was GORGEOUS!!!! We found out that we had a bridal attendant and thank God we did, because she helped us understand what we needed to do and where we needed to be. We did our rehearsal dinner at Rare The Steakhouse, which is owned by the same family, and that was amazing as well. They also did our cake and i gave them a picture and replicated it, it was beautiful!! And it tasted AMAZING. everyone said it was the best wedding cake they have ever had. All of my family and my husbands family said that this was the wedding of a century and that it was the best wedding they have ever been too. It was truly the most amazing experience of my life and part of that goes to il Tulipano. If you are having a hard time deciding where to have your wedding, have it at il Tulipano, you cannot go wrong and I PROMISE, it will be the most stress free time of your life!! I guarentee it!

My husband and I had our reception at Il Tulipano in June and had the most amazing time! We are still talking about it, and so are all our friends and family. From the amazing food, beautiful atmosphere, and the amazing service - it was all perfect and everyone is still raving about Il Tulipano. We can't wait to go back there as a guest for someone else's wedding, to enjoy it all over again. I would highly recommend this venue to anyone because you know you will get the best service possible and will completely enjoy your wedding day to the fullest. Everyone at Il Tulipano was so attentive to us and our family and friends, we truly had nothing to worry about and were able to just enjoy the night with everyone we love. A special thanks to everyone at Il Tulipano for making our wedding day one that is unforgettable!

My husband and I got married in April, EVERYTHING was exactly the way I imagined my wedding day to be. I loved the service, I loved how my needs were met. Due to my mom having chemo prior in the month of our wedding she was sick during our event. They packed me up beautiful dessert tray to give to her since she missed us cutting the cake on. It was truly a wonderful venue with everything in place that I had asked for. I couldnt have wished for anything else.

Let me start off this review by telling all the brides and grooms-to-be that my husband and I looked at 15 different venues before carefully selecting il Tulipano to be our special place to hold our wedding..! We can say with absolute certainty that this was one of the smartest decisions we ever made in terms of wedding planning. Our wedding was executed so beautifully, one of my aunts now wants to hold my cousin's wedding here.

il Tulipano is top-notch, and here are the reasons why...

- Donald Longo - what a saint..! He was so accommodating with sitting my husband and me down to really plan everything out to a "T", even during offbeat hours (with our work schedules being so hectic). So professional yet so honest at the same time. My husband and I loved Donald!

- Whether getting married outdoors in the beautiful piazza or indoors under a beautiful glass-paned ceiling.. you really can't lose! Many guests have commented on the beautiful landscaping that was evident during our outdoors ceremony

- Super attentive and helpful bridal attendant and maitre'd (Thank you, Sunday & Carol!!!) from the moment you exit your limo. These ladies made sure my groom and I had a chance to eat, made sure my feet were comfortable, made sure I had a tissue in hand during speeches.. and even allotted a special 5-minute "alone time" post-ceremony just to really enjoy each other's company in the bridal suite. Little details you wouldn't think would be picked up easily.. these ladies were our lucky stars. I had absolutely no contact with any vendors that day, as everything was already taken care of before I arrived at il Tulipano.

- I'm running out of space, but here are the others: The beautifully-lit ballroom (completely made our wedding video!), the spectacular Venetian hour, the intimacy of being the only wedding being celebrated that night, our delicious and magnificent in-house created CAKE, the FOOD..
THANK YOU, il Tulipano!!!!

Il Tulipano is a premier facility with the absolute best value, their food is top quality and their staff is always courteous and professional. The bridal attendant took care of every detail and stayed by our side the entire night. I had my daughters wedding as well as my 2nd wedding at Il Tulipano and would suggest them to anyone thinking of getting married or having a corporate affair. We have also utilized their in house preferred vendors and they are also as professional and couteous as the staff at Il Tulipano. In my opinion the best in North Jersey!!

Selecting a wedding venue to host your wedding celebration has to be one of the most difficult decisons to make when getting married. From the moment my husband and I visited Il Tulipano for the first time, we knew it was the place for us. Vincent made us feel comfortable and didn't try to give us a sales pitch like other venues we visited. He was gracious and made us feel like family. I truly believe that the value far exceeds the investment we made. The food was outrageous and abundant, the service was spectacular, and anything I asked for leading up to the wedding, any special request I made the reply was "Anything you want." My in-laws asked if we could request sugar-free desserts for the diabetics attending. We thought there would be a sugar-free cake and a few cookies, but there was an entire table of sugar-free desserts at our reception! Thea, my bridal attendant was amazing. She reminded my husband to put his jacket on for pictures, kept my slippers under the table for me during dinner so I could slip them on between courses, she bustled my dress, searched high and low for my bracelet that fell off and found it in the parking lot, reminded me to put lip gloss on, helped my bridemaid get a stain out of her dress, and so much more. Every detail was executed perfectly, and the owner introduced himself and thanked us for hosting our special day with them. I cannot recommend them enough. I am still being complimented by my family and friends. They tell me it was the most amazing wedding they've been to. We will absolutely be using them again the future.

The moment my husband and I walked into il Tulipano we were sold. The place has this magical way of making you feel like you are at home. It is so warming and welcoming. It is gorgeous inside and out and their outdoor patio and garden make for great pictures! The staff is AMAZING. Greg Jr. was always available to help with any questions and he flexibly catered to all of our requests to make it truly our day. We were always nicely greeted by staff whenever we walked in. On our wedding day, service was impeccable! The second our limo pulled up, my husband and I were treated like royalty! They even brought food to us at cocktail hour so we could mingle with guests. Speaking of the food....it lived up to its reputation...delicious! Same goes for the cake...best I've ever had! Three weeks later our guests are still raving about it, as well as the food! Overall, il Tulipano makes the planning easy (as easy as it can be!) and your reception perfect!

I don't have one negative thing to say about il Tulipano. I had my wedding there on June 2, 2012. Every single thing was absolutely perfect. The place its self was immaculate. The gardens in the back were breath taking. They catered to every single wants and need of mine and my husband. They staff was there for us every step of the way and aimed to please us and they did! If I could give them an actual star rating of my own it would be 100. The food, oh my goodness, the food was fantastic. My guest are STILL talking about how delicious everything was. The cocktail hour was amazing, dinner was amazing, and the viennese hour was amazing. I couldn't have asked for a more perfect place to celebrate the most important day of our lives. Thank you all, especially Greg Jr., for all of your hard work and care for our wedding. Expect to see us in the future. We love you guys!!!!!!!

We had our wedding reception at Il Tulipano on May 19, 2012, and everything was ABSOLUTELY perfect!!!!!! We can't thank Donald, Jason, and the whole staff enough for making sure literally every stop of the way was flawless. I would recommend Il Tulipano to anyone.
A few things that made it stick out to me in our wedding venue search (and it was EXTENSIVE!) - the food at Il Tulipano was notoriously awesome, there was tons of food from the cocktail hour to the venetian hour - our guests were amazed, and it was all delicious. The outside piazza was lovely, so nice to be able to go outside during the cocktail hour and a great place for photos. There was enough seating for everyone of our guests during cocktail hour - I hate the awkwardness of walking around trying to hold everything during cocktail hour, and very few venues offer this. I really liked that we had the whole venue to ourselves - it really made our event feel special. They are constantly updating and making sure everything is pristine. Also, I had a bridal attendant from the moment I stepped out of the car, and she bustled me and got us plates of food from the cocktail hour and venetian hour and made sure we ate, she also made sure everything flowed perfectly, and was there to deal with any issue that came up so my parents or I didn't have to.
Overall - I wholeheartedly recommend :)

There is not enough that I can say about our experience at Il Tulipano...from start to finish! From the moment we decided to have our wedding at this venue, it became the only aspect that I never needed to worry about. The staff is accommodating, professional, helpful and above else, interested in creating the perfect wedding memories. Greg Jr. was reassuring, capable, helpful and accommodating to my many requests and questions. Carol was truly a life saver and at times I think she could even read my mind anticipating what I needed. I can't say enough about the staff!
Since it was our second wedding, we decided to go with a full cocktail/buffet style wedding and have received nothing but raves from family and friends. Comments from the beautiful outdoor ceremony to the delicacies for both dinner and dessert have been forthcoming ever since! cinco de mayo will never be the same as the one we celebrated here!!! Thank you for the greatest wedding memories!

il Tulipano helped us achieve our dream wedding! Vincent was fantastic and helped my dream wedding become a reality! Still two weeks later family and friends are commenting how wonderful our wedding was. Many guests commented that our red velvet wedding cake was the best wedding cake they have ever had! Cocktail hour impressed our guests as did the main course! The food was incredible and the professionalism and care shown by Vincent and the rest of the staff at il Tulipano was outstanding. I would highly recommend this venue to host your dream wedding. I had many personalized items that I had made and they made sure that every item was how I wanted it. il Tulipano, Thank you for helping make our wedding unforgettable!!!

Our wedding was March 9th 2012, and I could not wait to get home and write a review. I want to start by saying this place was perfect; the food, the atmosphere, and especially the service was unbelievable.
We booked over a year in advance and had our doubts, stresses, and excitement throughout the year leading up to our wonderful night. We are from central NJ and when people asked where the venue we booked was, many had not heard of Il Tulipano. This added to our stress. However, the night of the wedding erased any doubt. This place is nothing short of superb! The night began with pictures starting at 5:30 in their gorgeous courtyard (even in March), in which the matradee (bridal attendant) made sure we had EVERYTHING we needed. Althea was with us the entire night making sure we never had to wait or even ask for anything. Food and drinks were served to us continuously throughout the night. She provided the most superior service my wife and I have ever received. We truly felt like royalty. Along with the unparalleled service provided by her, Vincent and the entire staff made the night run without a hitch. At no time did ourselves or our guests hear the word “NO”. Everything we wanted, and didn’t even know we wanted, we got.
The upstairs reception room was breathtaking with the new track lighting, gorgeous table setups, and incredible service. Our night was just perfect. We had requested a special service for our entrance (shots provided to all guests to take when we were announced for Mr. & Mrs. The first time), and we were sure they would disagree to this, but we were wrong. They did this for us with smiles on their faces and it was awesome! We even got compliments from our guests afterward. I have never seen or attended an event like they put on for our wonderful night, and it is safe to say will never attend a wedding more fantastic or more incredible in our lives.
The last thing I want to point out is that we tried the food in various halls across the state, and nothing even compares. Every one of my guests could not believe the amount and quality of delicious food. Our guests raved that everything they had was fantastic and people are still talking about it. If you decide to book Il Tulipano (which I would highly recommend), make sure you get the soft shell crab during the cocktail hour, and be sure to try the Filet Mignon as your main dish as I have never had a better cut of meat ‘EVER’. Finally, I just want to say that looking back on the night, there is absolutely nothing I would change. There is nothing more I could have asked for or wanted. They made our wedding an amazing event we will cherish for the rest of our lives.

IL Tulipano has a great representation - everyone I know will not want to turn down a wedding invitation to Tulipano simply because you won't be disappointed with the amazing quality of food and services. I had 245 people at my wedding and everyone spoke highly about the food and the Venetian room. Even guests were surprised to taste delicious wedding cake that was made on the premise! Vincent and Gregorio Jr. were very accommodating and pleasure to work with. Gregorio Jr. was personable enough to come up to me during the cocktail hour and congratulated me. Also, i never knew how much helpful it was to have our bridal attendant Thea until that big day!! She was right there when I came out of the limo until the end of the night when I went in the shuttle van. She informed me when dinner was our table and asked for any of my belongings so she could hand them to me whenever I needed them like slippers and lipstick. Even though I was the bride, I totally trusted the Tulipano staff to do their job and enjoyed my own wedding!
Thank you so much for an amazing night!! I hope to host future parties there!

He returned calls immediately and was very attentive throughout the planning. The day of the wedding he greeted me at the car when I arrived and made the evening effortless on my part. My attendant, Sunday, was always at the table asking what I needed and anticipating my every need. She even worried that I was so excited and wasn't eating so she made me a plate.
These people made me feel like family.

Il Tulipano made my wedding perfect. When initially looking for a venue, we knew Il Tulipano had a great reputation, but we saw it we knew we wanted to have our wedding there. Our ceremony was going to be held there and their outside grounds are breathe taking. From the very beginning they made have my wedding there so easy. They were accommodating with every request we had. Everybody on their staff is incredible and I can't say enough about them. We initially dealt with Donald who was great and in the last two weeks before the wedding I spoke with Vincent and Gregori who were both awesome. They knew everything about my wedding even though I had been dealing with Donald. I was so impressed. The couple of days before the big day, they calmed my nerves and assured me everything would be perfect and it was!!!!! The food, the service, the bridal attendants were all great. My guests are just raving and raving about my wedding. I told Gregori before leaving that night that when I have my first child the Christening will be there! I want to have another party there; that is how much i loved them! Anyone who has their wedding there or any other event will not be disappointed. I promise.

Denise and I experienced a phenomenal wedding celebration at il Tulipano in Cedar Grove, NJ. Our ceremony and reception exceeded our expectations. Donald Longo and Steve Meier patiently advised us in planning and preparing for our special day with professionalism and personality. We didn't have any stress. Carol Banda, the maitre d', Thea, our bridal attendant, and the entire staff treated us as if we were royalty.

The room where our ceremony was attended provided an intimate setting for us to proclaim our love before our families and friends. From the cocktail hour, and through the reception and the venetian hour, the food was fabulous and abundant. The presentation was impeccable! Our wedding cake was remarkably copied from a photo we had provided. It tasted as fine as it appeared.

Our guests raved about our wonderful wedding. We even received a communication from a friend thanking us for our invitation.

Gregorio Polimeni Jr., the proprietor, hosts a top-notch establishment. He possesses the class to congratulate us during our reception and to inquire if there was anything we needed.

If you want a wedding of a lifetime, il Tulipano definitely makes your special day a most memorable occasion.

Sincerely,

Joe and Denise

The food was fantastic, the grounds were beautiful and the guests are still talking about all the things they enjoyed from the day. The only complaint I had was that the people who cleaned up the ceremony threw away the glass my husband stomped on at the end of the ceremony. After all was said and done, I would definitely recommend this venue to anyone looking to have their wedding in a beautiful space with terrific food, helpful staff,etc.

Absolutely amazing! I can't find one terrible thing to say about il Tulipano. They made sure our wedding ran smoothly and exactly how we wanted. The food was absolutely delicious from the cocktail hour through dessert. We looked at a lot of places in Bergen County and il Tulipano gave us a lot for the least amount of $$. Our bridal attendant was amazing, she made sure we had everything we needed and we actually got to eat! I highly recommend il Tulipano.

First off let me say that the staff at il Tulipano managed to blow the minds of every single guest at my wedding! The food can't be described and I have yet to cease hearing the rave reviews from my friends and family. I worked with much of their staff, from Gregorio Jr, Vincent, Donald and others whse names I can't remember. Each and every member of their staff treated us as if we were their only function on their calendar. They were patient, we didn't get the seating done until the day before and then I changed the layout of the room, Professional, and just a pure pleasure to work with. On the day of the service and facility were beyond compare. Our Bridal attendant was amazing and was the only reason I got to eat and enjoy most if not all the gourmet, made in-house delights that seemed to never end. I am a hospitality management professional by education and trade so I'm very picky about service and quality of food and Il Tulipano melted my brain they were so good. This was the first and only place we really considered and it was the best decision we made. I am still speechless and struggle to find the words to communicate how I feel about the wonderful experience they provided my wife and I on our special day. My only regret is that the reception was so great I didn't want it to end! By far the best cocktail hour, dinner, and Venetian hour I have ever seen and I have been to many Weddings and have worked on many more. Now I hope I know someone who gets married there so I can return and enjoy all they have to offer without the distractions of being the Groom.

Il Tulipano was the first place we visited and the only place we visited. The grounds are beautiful. The food is INCREDIBLE!!!!!!!!!! Everyone raved about the food and the service. They did everything we wanted. We gave them two pictures of two different cakes that we wanted. They incorporated both cakes EXACTLY to what we wanted. My fiance and I really could not have asked for more. Our bridal attendant was great! She made sure we ate and waited on up hand an foot. My glass was never empty!

I worked with Donald through the entire process. He is such a doll! Make sure you ask for him!! Love you Donald!!

Il Tulipano was terrific! They helped us with our rehearsal, planned out every step and ran us through it two times. Carol and Thea were fantastic bridal attendants. They had my glass full, dress fluffed and food on our table. The food was out of this world and the service was impeccable. The waiters were polite and very quick when bringing drinks. Some tables didn�t need to get up at all to go to the bar. The outdoor ceremony was beautiful. The area by the waterfall was perfect for taking pictures. Our cake was my favorite part! They did exactly what we wanted and it also was delicious! The bar is almost ridiculous considering they have 14 different kinds of bottled beer and stock Kettle One as well as Grey Goose Vodka. Most weddings I have been to have about 4 different beers and one type of Vodka. I cannot say enough about the dessert! The zeppolis were delicious, the geloti was homemade and the pastries were plentiful. Our guests can�t stop raving about our wedding and I am so happy we chose il Tulipano.

I can not express how wonderful my wedding day was because of the staff at il Tulipano. From the moment we pulled up when our venue search started we knew that il Tulipano was "it." Everyone says you get a feeling when you know it's right, and we had that feeling. The place was gorgeous, the grounds were beautiful and the kindness and experience of the staff was excellent. We signed our contract 20 minutes after walking through the doors. The entire planning process was wonderful. Greg and Steve were excellent to work with. The day of the wedding everything went so smooth, even though it was pouring out. I had someone by my side the entire time helping me with my dress, carrying my flowers, pulling out my chair and getting anything I needed. There really isnt words for how amazing the food is. Our guests are still raving about the selection, amount and quality of all the food. We had very happy and full guests at the end of the night. It's a great feeling when our guests are still talking about how beautiful and wonderful our wedding was, and I do have to thank il tulipano for making my wedding the most amazing day of my life. I highly highly highly recommend them!!!!

My wedding reception at Il Tulipano was absolutely perfect. The food was unbelievable. From the cocktail hour to the Venetian hour everything that was served was nothing short of perfect. The food was served hot, the staff was super attentive to myself, the groom- but also my guests. The only reason why I have responsiveness one half less star was because Donald (the sales rep) was sometimes hard to get in touch with during the planning process. But once meeting with him in person, everything we selected with him on the menu and all of our special requests were taken care of so no biggie ;) Especially after the amazing wedding reception they gave us. 99% of my guests were Italian and most of them VERY Italian like I mean born and raised in Italy. They all LOVED the food. That is saying something. Even my DJ (who attends weddings on the regular- kind of a job requirement, LOL) was AMAZED at the food. He came up to me at the end of the night and said it was unreal. I am from Staten Island and Il Tulipano is not one of those venues that Staten Islanders are tired of (like certain other venues in NJ I won't mention any names) and it is easy to get to and close, too... so my fellow Staten Islanders- if you want amazing food, one wedding at a time, and something DIFFERENT then go to Il Tulipano. Your guests will not stop talking about it. I didn't even mention the grounds and they are so worth mentioning- STUNNING, BEAUTIFUL, FLOWERS, GARDENS, WATERFALL... Perfect any season. Seating at cocktail hour for EVERY GUEST. Important stuff! Did I say one wedding at a time? Thank you Il Tulipano. Amazing. PS our maitre dee worked her butt off she was awesome! OMG I almost forgot- The cake was perfect. I gave them a picture and the pastry chef made it exactly perfect. And its included! PS just fyi all of the bread, pastries, cakes, pasta are made on the premises fresh and when you walk in the place you will smell the fresh baking bread. Yes, you will... heaven.

Absolutely amazing. They catered to our every want and need (almost too much!) and the food was probably the best I've ever had! We have a big Italian family and they are still talking about the food months later... so you know that it's good. The place is beautiful and has the sweetest touches... from the decor and having a little reservation setting for the bride and groom at the cocktail hour to the slide show of our pictures. They were great I would recommend them to anyone.

We were married at il Tulipano March 14, 2014. We worked with Jacques as our event coordinator. He was great with mapping out the details of their elaborate menu and pricing. He was somewhat flexible and offered us a price that we couldn't refuse. The date being in March didn't allow us the option to utilize much of the outdoor areas, but the decor inside is elaborate enough to impress, and not too gaudy. The food was outrageous! People are still talking about it! (2 wk later) The ballroom had up-lighting which I really loved. The staff was wonderful - my maitre'd (?) and bridal attendant were awesome. Jacques was NOT there the day of, but it turned out to be fine. Only qualm, I was told there would be candles provided for the tables in the ballroom and there weren't. Any. At all. But if that's my only complaint, I'm good with it. No one else noticed!

We picked il Tulipano for two main reasons – I knew the food was amazing as I had attended several events there over the years and they do one wedding at a time. After visiting a few venues, I began to see the benefit of having a place to ourselves, vice sharing space with another wedding/event. I didn’t try anything at a tasting or at the wedding that wasn’t top notch. Our guests are raving about the food and how it was so much better than any other wedding they have been at. In addition to the food, the service is impeccable. I didn’t get to experience it fully as the bride, but have heard multiple stories from guests that make me so happy I chose this place. Just a small example: My cousin’s dress ripped right down the back on a seam and she was about the leave the reception early when one of the servers took her in the bridal suite and sewed up the dress so she could return to the party. Drink glasses were never empty and the food during the dinner was delivered so that the entire party had their entrees within minutes of each other.

I have nothing but great things to say about Il Tulipano. From the day we booked our wedding, everyone we dealt with was professional, courteous and helpful. The food was amazing and we gave them the picture of te cake we wanted and they made an exact replica for no extra charge!! The price was much more reasonable than other catering halls we looked at, and I felt like the qualtiy of the food was better. The gardens are also beautiful and look great in pictures! I would highly recommend this catering hall!

Ultimately we were absolutely pleased with our event. My husband and I were looking for a place to hold a traditional Italian wedding without the gaudiness and il Tulipano fit the bill perfectly. Pluses - outdoor space, one wedding at time, on site pastry chef (cake was amazing), 1-1 waitstaff to table ratio, elevator for elderly guests, and most importantly amazing food.

What would have made the experience a 5 all around was if they would have accomodated us with a tasting. We got married in a really short span of time so there were no mock weddings scheduled in enough time to let us make a choice so ultimately we just had to take their word for it that everything would be excellent.

Luckily it was.

I had my reception at Il Tulipano this past September (not my ceremony, so I can't comment on that) and it was nothing short of spectacular. Every person I dealt with was friendly and accomodating in the months leading up to the wedding. The night itself proved to be even better than I thought and I loved that every member of the staff was so detail oriented. There were a few things that (in retrospect) I would have liked to have seen differently such as...I wish they had given me a "timeline" of how the night would unfold so I could prepare myself for it because the night really flew by and I was never sure what was coming "next".

All in all, I highly recommend Il Tulipano and if I had to do it all over again, they would be my #1 choice.

The cocktail hour was phenomenal. An abudance of food and nicely displayed. Dinner was good, but my one disappointment was that one of three entree selections was "grilled chicken pizzaola". The grilled chicken was on a bone which I never wouldnt expected and I although the decription did not specify 'boneless', I expect it would be boneless especially when you see the words "grilled chicken breast" in the description. Also, not all dishes contained chicken breast. When visiting a table shortly after eating our entrees, I learned that two of the chicken dishes ordered at that table alone were not chicken breast but chicken legs or thighs. This was a disappointment. My filet mignon was delicious and cooked nicely. I didn't hear any remarks about the Tilapia (good or bad).

The bridal assistant / matre D (?) was responsive during photos and helpful in getting everyone together before the ceremony and reception, however, there were a few times when a drink or dessert was promised to be brought to me (volunteered, not requested by me) and never brought over. I didn't feel like the servers catered to us that night like I thought they would (or should) have. All in all, Il Tulipano was a nice venue, the food was good and it was a good value.
