The first step towards a dream wedding starts with a ride up a sweeping tree-lined driveway leading to Le Chateau. Housed in a stone and brick Tudor mansions built in 1907 by financier J.P. Morgan. Le Chateau sits majestically on 32 acres, high on a hill with breathtaking views of the Hudson River Valley.
Old world elegance is still alive at this country estate. Traditional French fare will impress your guests as well as their palates. Romance fills the air in the chestnut and cherry paneled rooms. The moods of the several lovely dining rooms all with sunset views, range from cozy and intimate to commanding.
Lavish entry way bouquets in elegant vases, soft lighting and polished attentive service are only some of the ingredients that contribute to the perfect wedding experience. Add to this the lovely stone terrace and gardens for cocktails and hors d'oeuvres, outdoor ceremonies and picture taking and you have a magnificent setting for your "dream" wedding. Other amenities are a bridal preparation room plus recomendations of florist, music, or photographer, by our house event planners. Le Chateau is also ideal for hosting rehearsal dinners, bridal showers, anniversary parties as well as Bar/Bat- Mitzvahs, corporate events and other special occasions. Read less

The first impression of the restaurant is truly stunning; we both fell in love with the space right away and ended up signing a contract with them the day that we viewed it! The tasting solidified our decision, with attentive and thoughtful service and incredible food, but we never could have imagined how wonderful they would be able to make our wedding day. We had our ceremony at a different location, but from first arrival to packing up the extra cupcakes, it couldn't have been more perfect. If you want to take wedding photos, you won't find a more gorgeous spot than the building and grounds there! They were even thoughtful enough to put out separate appetizers and drinks for the bridal party so that we could continue to enjoy the night even during the photo sessions. The cocktail hour was in their garden and between the food, drinks, service and setting, we couldn't have received more compliments. We also had almost every out of town person mention that they felt like they were in a postcard. Dancing was another wonderfully orchestrated event; Jean Luc had everything running smoothly all night and, as the bride, I felt like I never had to lift a finger or manage anything to make the evening flow. The dinner was beyond words- we had most guests mention that it was, by far, the best wedding food they had ever enjoyed and beyond that they would love to just return to the restaurant for a meal. We had the filet minion, and no one could believe that they were able to successfully cook each piece to the requested doneness. For the 60+ people that ended up ordering the filet, it is really quite a culinary feat to accomplish and Le Chateau's chef blew us away from first course to main course to dessert. I can't recommend them enough, they truly make dream weddings come true and I can't begin to thank them for everything they did. Thank you for making it the most beautiful day for all of us!!

Thank you, Christine, Lee and the staff for making our October 17th 2014 wedding. Picture prefect. Our guest said they love the idea of black tie and dressing up. The food was superb!
Even the vegan menu was a hit. Best of all the cake tasted amazing but missing was the flowers on top.

Absolutely gorgeous venue. Food was excellent. Only negative thing was the bartender was no where to be found for the first 1/2 hour.
Besides that everything was wonderful!! We used the upstairs room which was perfect for our size (about 30). Truly a beautiful location!

From the first meeting with Lee and Christina , to the evening of our wedding Le Chateau's staff were very professional and accommodating. On the day of our weeding the entire staff worked together like clock work, paid attention to the finest details,and our wedding reception was perfect. Food was amazing, and the cake was out of this world. Highly recommend Le Chateau for anyone's future events.

I would give negative stars if I could for this venue. My youngest daughter picked this place for her most important wedding day and what a major mistake that was....they had a wedding before ours and were not ready to receive my guest when they arrived for our wedding...they were still setting up...If you have your cocktail hour inside be ready for your guests to be lined up like cattle waiting to get a drink. The bridal suite was dirty with dishes from the previous wedding when the bride and her wedding party arrived. My older daughter who was pregnant asked for the room to be cleaned three times and also asked for food and drinks. My pregnant daughter had to clean up the dishes and they never received a drink or a morsel of food. We had 153 guests and we were packed in like sardines with the waiters bumping into every guests chair because they had no room to move around.The food was horrible which I noticed myself but I was also told by my friends and family after the wedding that they hated the food. They ran out of the signature drink of the wedding and never bothered to make more until I went up to the bar to ask for one. One of my guests never received their meal and ended up eating what was left over from his girlfriend's plate.

I could go on but I am starting to get upset as much as I was on that evening. I almost went around to my guests to apologize for how horrible the wedding was. My daughter the bride was in tears at the end of the wedding. We paid champagne prices for boxed wine quality which is exactly what we received!

The owner of this establishment and her cruel way of handling business RUINED my wedding day! She thought it okay to start a tab on the Bride and Groom for the beverages not covered in our package and NEVER TELL US!! At the end of the evening I was handed a bill for $1600 that I had no clue about!!!! She treated me like absolute garbage on my own wedding day after paying her establishment a hefty amount for our 60 person wedding. I walked out of Le Chateau in tears on my own wedding night. She snatched my check from my hand in front of my family and yelled at me that "I WASN'T WORTH IT!!!" I cannot believe such a nice establishment would have such an evil woman running it. PLEASE BEWARE! My day was already ruined please try somewhere nicer for your big day, where they will treat you with respect! I tried to work with them and explain we had no knowledge and were not trying to skip out on any bill and she was a complete tyrant with her staff and turned our special day into a NIGHTMARE!

We had the absolutely most amazing wedding here this weekend!! Words can't describe how wonderful the ambience was thanks to the staff and the setting of this wonderful venue. Our ceremony started at 6 and was over by 6:30, just in time to take photos in front of the gorgeous sunset that was taking place in the background. Our guests were so impressed with everything about Le Chateau, from the decor, to the setting, to the food, which was the highlight of the night! Both Lee and Christine, the Banquet Managers, were such a pleasure to work with throughout the year of planning our wedding. They were always available and responsive, and made sure no details were missed. Everything we requested to be set up was done so with perfection. It made our wedding literally a dream come true. And Jean-Luc, the Maitre'D, was there for our every need the night of the wedding itself. He did a fabulous job making sure our needs were met as well as our guests. We had 150 guests in total and did a cocktail style reception, with open seating. The floor plan looked exactly as we imagined it and made for a fun-filled evening where our guests could move around the beautiful venue with ease, dancing, taking photos in the photobooth room we set up, and getting food from the various stations we had set up around the estate. I would recommend this venue for anyone looking for the perfect place for your guests to have the time of their lives at your wedding!!
