I just hosted my wedding recently at Leonard's and everything was perfect. Eric Redlich is the most organized and caring manager to work with. The whole staff is flexible, professional and a pleasure to work with. We had small hiccups during the wedding due to OTHER vendors being late, however the staff at Leonard's really handled the situation well and made a beautiful transition from ceremony to cocktail hour to the reception. The wedding was flawless because of the organization of Leonard's. I would not think twice about getting married. The place and decor is beautiful and it is totally worth it. The new management has really changed Leonard's overall and it's PERFECT.

Leonards is a BEAUTIFUL and ELEGANT place. Meet with the staff, you will fall in love with the place and appreciate the professional attitude they exhibit, its much better compared to the other venues I have been to. I rate this place five stars in terms of professionalism, customer service and flexibility.

WOW!!!! I'm speechless. Leonards has to be the number one wedding venue in NY!!. I have attended many wedding and have paid attention to every detail. Even though I was very busy I noticed all the hard work. The service was out of this world. I still have people coming to me expressing it was the best wedding they ever went to, white glove and celebrity service all the way. Maître d, Michelle was amazing...almost had a bridal break done because of family but she stepped in and made me feel comfortable again. My two bridal attendants .. I call them "shadows", the best way I can explain how on top of every detail and moment they where. They know where I was and where my family was at any moment. I will forever highly recommend Leonards Palazzo, I give it a PERFECT 10!

The food was heavenly. My guests only complaint was they had to be rolled out of the venue due to being over stuffed.
When I dropped off my party favors I had asked if it was possible to fluff up the bows that where smashed down from stacking, It was done and to perfection. I was so shocked how nicely it was placed on the table. The Waiters and Waitresses where the best I have ever experienced. Clean, well dressed and extremely professional!!

Eric was super helpful. Thank you for making my dream a reality!!!!

I just want to say before I continue with my ramble that Leonard's offered a better deal that venues that were less aesthetically pleasing. My wedding was on a Thursday (odd day to get married, I know). I only booked the cocktail hour and reception here, and everything was PERFECT. I could not have imagined a better party. The food was good, we got an amazing deal (only 65 people). The price they offered was much better than other venues that did not offer as much as Leonard's did. Also an amazing place to take pictures. Leonard's looks like a beautiful mansion and is extremely elegant. Everyone assumed we must have paid a fortune for it. It was so beautiful and in our price range. Definitely worth it!

Leonard's of Great Neck is not only the most beautiful place to have a wedding but also the most accomodating! Service was excellent. I have no complaints at all. The banquet manager (Antonio) along with the bridal attendant and maitre d's were super responsive all the time and did everything asked of them. I am still receiving compliments on the venue and service that my guests received during both the wedding ceremony and the reception. Thank you Leonard's for creating my dream wedding!!

I had previously used Leonard's for organization events but I also remembered having my sister's wedding reception there so I knew that I had to go back to this place. The ambiance was one of an Italian Villa, beautiful flowers with pockets of picture perfect scenery, and of course ample parking.

Our sales manager pulled out all the stops to ensure that my specifications were met. Our catering manager provided us with all the choices but did not hard sell us in choosing our food choices. On the day of the wedding, we were fortunate enough to be the only party that afternoon so we were give the beautifu Crystal Pavilion for our cocktail hour and the Da Vinci Room on the Penthouse floor for our reception.

My out of town guests could not stop admiring the beautiful location, ambience and service. But most of all, everyone appreciated the food and drinks - not just in abundance but in its artful presentation and yes it also tasted really good! The service staff were outstanding. They made sure that all the guests were happy. our bridal attendant was available at a moment's notice to address any of my needs - including helping me with a gown change that took just 10 minutes. The staff also made sure that I secured all my belongings after the event....I almost forgot an expensive borrowed veil...but our attendant came running out of the hall to catch us as we were able to drive away. Impeccable and attentive service was found in the small things...which added up to become just perfect.

Towards the end of my reception, our initial sales manager stopped by to see how things were coming along....That was just so appreciated that our manager took the time to follow up with us..not just at the beginning when we signed the contract, but here at the reception itself, he actually took the time to make sure that we were happy and having a wonderful time. After the reception, we called around to our family and friends and as we expected, there was only high praise and appreciation for Leonard's.

On behalf of my husband and my family, Thank you Leonard's for an awesome and memorable day. We will consider Leonard's as a top choice for future events...(more wedding, organization parties...baptisms, milestone birthdays or retirement parties).

The staff was very accommodating and professional and friendly. From the time we put down a deposit to when i made my grand exit the staff was absolutely lovely. The place is under new management since the past year or two and Bobby is really fantastic. We had an indian ceremony and reception and they did everything that they could to add in custom dishes to the menu for both the cocktail hour and the reception and everyone really loved the food. If you want to go big with desserts get the veinesse tables. I have seen many variations but this one is the biggest i have ever seen. Lots of variety of cakes, ice-cream, canoli bar, chocolate fountains.. it was a LOT and the guests absolutely love it. The grounds have lots of pretty arches and garden spaces that we were able to take pics with as well as the infamous huge chandelier and staircase. Thanks for a great day!

Leonard’s was fantastic to work with from the planning process to the day-of. Don’t let any old negative reviews sway your opinion. At first I was a little bit skeptical about booking with them by a few biased reviews that I read but I was in love with the venue so I focused on the good ones. I am a review freak. Never did I have any major issues booking with them for my wedding of over 200 guests. We had the penthouse floor locked off for our event for both cocktail hour and the reception. Its my favorite room in the place. It was beyond amazing and my guest four months later are still raving about the food, the place and the fun they had at our wedding. Leonard’s recently installed lighting on the penthouse floor and boy does it make a difference. After all of the décor and flowers were put together, the room was magical. I also had a photobooth put in the bar area which was phenomenal (www.modernphotobooth.com). Leonard’s has a very particular process in place to ensure efficiency and good service. It is true that you always get a receptionist when you call, but the ALWAYS call or email you back about your concerns. The preparations department was great and the bridal attendant the day-of was a sweetheart. Wish I remembered her name. We were lucky to have our wedding on a day when no other events were booked so I cant speak for the place when multiple events are occurring at the same time. Leonard’s is a true gem otherwise and they lived up to every single one of my expectations. Don’t be afraid to ask questions. They will accommodate you the best they can to make your day special!

They pulled off an amazingly beautiful reception and ceremony for us. And the grounds are absolutely beautiful for the photos. The staff was very friendly and helpful and there when you need them but not ever in the way. Facilities were immaculate, and the bridal suite was almost good enough to have the reception in! I would have future events there, no question!

Everything was amazing the day of our wedding!! The staff that helped us that day was more than accomodating, from the moment we stepped out of the limo there were two bridal attendants, one who carried the back of my dress the other who took my flowers who were nothing but AMAZING the entire night. They made sure we had everything we needed and were so sweet :) We didn't do anything extra for the cocktail hour except add the seafood frenzy which was a huge hit (people can't stop talking about it). The place itself is gorgeous. The only down falls to Leonards is that there is more than one event booked on the same day so you may run into another bride which isnt the end of the world and the second is that the managers are not always that great they can be a little bit snappy while yu're speaking to them...we had an excellent experience with Antonio but a not so great encounter with Ian...overall it wasnt too bad...hope that helps and good luck!!

The minute I entered the venue, I knew it was the place I wanted for my wedding. It is beautiful!! The spiral stairs by the chandelier, the spectacular entrance and the vintage decor was what did it for me:)They were quick to respond to my emails and phone calls regarding the wedding day. For the wedding day, their staff was very helpful, accommodating my guests. the bridal party as well as my husband and I of course! Their food was delicious and beverages were delightful. The wait staff was very attentive to our needs making sure we were kept happy, they even brought us a little bit of everything they were serving at the buffet for us to taste. Overall I had a beautiful wedding experience and wonderful memories that will last me a life time!

My husband and I were recently married and had our reception at Leonard's of Great Neck. Leading up to our event I had read several reviews and not many were positive, so I was worried. I wanted to take the time to write this because I must say all of those negative reviews were 100% wrong! From the first meeting Bobby was extremely helpful and worked around our budget. The event staff (we worked mainly with Rosa and Vicky) were absolutely amazing and really genuinely interested in making our day perfect. The food was spectacular as well as the service. I had read that the staff was unfriendly and unprofessional and I have to say this is not true at all. If I had to pick one negative it would be that the cake I thought I had picked out / envisioned was not the one that was there the day of the wedding, but at the end of the day it still tasted GREAT and its just a cake. If that was the one thing to go wrong I'll take it in the grand scheme of the entire rest of the day being absolutely perfect! The only reason I am giving it 4.7 / 5 stars is because of the cake incident and I think they need to update the chairs and maybe build a garden for outside pictures other than that it was a great day!

The venue was pleasantly elegant with a dash of grand, it was hard to find a "bad" spot to take pictures. Even though there was an additional event taking place, they in no way interfered with our reception whatsoever! Did I mention the knowledgeable staff? Wow! Their knowledge and expertise made everything FLOW! All you have to do is sit back and enjoy your wedding! Oh, btw, this is the GROOM...that's how impressed I was!

When I first drove up to the entrance of Leonard's I wasn't expecting to be impressed with neoclassic architecture or beautifully appointed landscaping, or an outdoor garden worthy of the most elegant of weddings —at least not adjacent to Northern Blvd. in Great Neck— but I was!

Leonard's is simply magnificent.

If you are planning a reception that requires a flair for sophistication then I suggest you add Leonard's to your list. The food is exquisite, the staff superb and be prepared to have the owner involved in every detail that's important to you.

Leonard's provided an overall good service. We were able to get most of what we asked but they were not very flexible. We enjoyed the wedding but had some issues with our seating arrangements. Basically our head count was higher and Leonard's was very accommodating. They were able to give us additional seats at half the rate which was nice. I was suprised by their ability to deal with day of challenges as I felt somewhat stressed and have to give the matrodi lot of guidance.

I would definitely recommend Leonard's as a venue. The place looks beautiful and the food is good too. Service is good but I would not say great given my situation. Also great value given other venues we visited.

I had my wedding reception at Leonards in early October 2010. If I had the choice to do it all over again, I probably would select another reception venue, while Leonards provided excellent food and excellent maitre-ds/bridal attendants/service, they did not open my cocktail hour room until 30 min later (and some of my guests arrived early forcing them to wait outside until the room was opened) and I had ordered Filet Mignon which mysteriously turned into the stuffed Chicken dish upon its arrival to my table.

Also, very tough to get specific answers to certain questions. Calling in you need to leave your name and event date, and then a Banquet Manager gets back to you a few minutes or hours later. It all varies but I noticed it was a little nightmarish to call them asking questions and not getting immediate feedback.

However, the price was EXCELLENT for all the food we got - the bridal suit was spacious, clean and well located. Overall, if you are looking for a budget wedding - Leonards is the way to go. Plus, the grounds are gorgeous for picture taking (which is why I booked there in the first place).

I booked my wedding in January of 2008 for my November 2008 wedding. I met with Antonio and he seemed ok to work with. I felt like all the other managers were better and much nicer. He showed me the 2 rooms in the upper level (penthouse) where I would have my ceremony, cocktail and reception for my 250 plus guest. Getting all the stuff to the place was great and the guy that helped was glad that I had a packing list for him. He too was helpful and organized. PS. I had to have all my vendors (band, dj, flowers, etc) be insured but they let me send 3 peoples to set up the day of the wedding with all my extras that I wanted.

Day of wedding:
They totally switched my cocktail room on me without prior notice and because of that, there was a mess with the seating cards and favors being set up in the wrong place. Everyone said the food was absolutely delicious but the cake was horrible. Everything else was fine and my "matra D" (Natalia) was fabulous. She was attentive, fast and very helpful.

After the wedding:
I noticed that I was missing my guest book and I called to see if they found it and they never returned my calls.... : (

The food and wedding cake was delicious! Everything that we requested was delivered. The only problem we had was that the venue was fully booked and all the rooms were used, I think even the workers were confused as to where to send the guests. We saw at least three brides that day, that was something that upset me very much! Overall, I was satisfied with their service and delivery but would recommend to rent the place in a day that won't be that popular.

Best value in Long Island. Great photo-taking venue because of the chandelier backdrops. I rated low on "flexibility" however, because there was one special request food-wise I requested on the signed agreement, which they agreed to, but was not done correctly the wedding day. They probably didn't re-read the contract the day of and therefore just did the run of the mill instead of my small request to switch around dessert order. It was a big deal to me (hence I had it explicitly stated in the contract), but probably the type of thing that they didn't see as a big deal or weren't careful enough to take time to re-read the contract. They did, however, throw in an ice-sculpture for free during cocktail hour, which I hadn't paid for, so in the end I didn't complain. Overall I still believe Leonard's is the best value price-wise for what you get.

I just had my wedding at Leonard's. My experience:
1. I was shown where my cocktail room and reception hall would be. The day of the wedding, the cocktail room was switched on me and the cocktail room didn't accommodate all my guests. People had to stand to eat their food. Their response: It wasn't written in the contract. Also, that there were empty tables as per my maitre'd.
2. The Ceremony Room - It wasn't ready until 7:20. There were people inside the ceremony room at 7:00. Please note that I planned on having my florist lay some flower petals on the floor but we were unable to do that since it seem like everything was being rushed. Note that I only had the ceremony room from 7:30 PM-8:00 PM. Their response: The agreed time for the ceremony room to be ready is 7:30PM. The guests were actually let in early. If the guests didn't get in til 7:30PM and get them all settled, after all said and done, I wouldn't have enough time to walk down the aisle have our Pastor perform the ceremony.
3. Food - The entrees didn't come out in a timely manner. Their response: It was because it was coordinated with the DJ & MC. Please note that I was already telling my maitre'd that people were getting hungry, especially the elderly. We didn't get our entrees until almost midnight (Note: Reception started at 9PM) Another reason they stated was due to the number of people doing their speeches (4 people at 3 mins each=12 mins)
4. Service - My Bridal Attendant, Lina did such an amazing job and was there with me every step of the way. My maitre'd was gone at times but he did his job. There was a couple of RUDE waitress and one waitor that made an inappropriate hand gesture that my bridesmaid saw. I would thrown him out the door if they told me what was going on. Their response:They will speak to the staff

Take caution!

I just had my wedding at Leonard's. My experience:
1. I was shown where my cocktail room and reception hall would be. The day of the wedding, the cocktail room was switched on me and the cocktail room didn't accommodate all my guests. People had to stand to eat their food. Their response: It wasn't written in the contract. Also, that there were empty tables as per my maitre'd.
2. The Ceremony Room - It wasn't ready until 7:20. There were people inside the ceremony room at 7:00.

We booked Leonards in Mar 2008 for our wedding on Nov 2008. We gave an approx. min. gtd guest but as the date got closer, it was much less than we expected. We tried everything to invite additional friends but still missed the min. gtd guest by 40! Took forever to get in contact with our banquet manager! I left several messages but he didn't call me back until a week later. Then, he said he will "take care" of it. We never heard back from him and assumed that all was "taken care" of. When the time came to pay our bills, apparently we were being charged for 20, instead of 40. We were pretty upset since he didn't follow up with us. In additional, they charged all of our kids, the adult price! The food was okay, the place was nicely kept and as a bride, it was nice to have a bridal suite with food. That was a plus for the location.

I had my wedding on Leonards & im not 100% happy with there service. Im a very easy to please but there were some things that really didn't go on my favor. The place is beautiful & it does look very elegant especially the chandelier but one of the things i didn't like was that i wanted to replace there cake for something else & the only thin they had to offer was cookies, they said that there cake was only worth $80 so they couldn't replace it with much so i ended up taking out there cake & still putting an additional $250 for a ice sculpture witch the day of the wedding they put in a corner were no body even noticed it was there. Plus the only thing I asked to drink the entire night was for a Pina Colada but a few seconds later my server came back to me said sorry we don't have any pina colada witch they had promised to have so i ended up drinking a coke & i'm the bride. The cocktail food was good but the main course for the reception i ordered chicken & it didn't have much flavor to it. The Bridal attendant was a good help I appreciated her work.

My first banquet manager Maurizio was awesome and even Antonio was great to work with but on my wedding day alot of screw ups occurred due to their incompetence. They had told me i was to get a 4 tier cake on my wedding day i wound up with a 3 tier cake. They had given us menus when we went to the final meeting saying one thing and then on my wedding day something else was served keep in my mind i had made custom menus saying what they had told me and they wound up serving us something else, my DOC noticed that and spoke to them about and they said well this is what was written in the contract yes that was true but why give a bride a menu that says something totally different. The food was subpar, only the venue itself is beautiful for pictures. The maitre'd was at another wedding the entire night and forgot about us since we were a smaller wedding and the bridal attendant didnt do a thing for me at all because she was waitressing another event. If you are on a budget like how we were then this place is okay but i truly suggest to look at other venues before settling with them because they will offer you the sun moon and the stars but on your wedding day they will screw you over!!

I wasn't really happy about my wedding. My matire and bride attendent were very professional but the services of the leonard were poor. My ceremony runner was just rolled of papers and my guest were looking for folks and knives on cocktail hour.
My husbad had to look for the wedding favors and flowers.
I won't recomment this place to my friends.

Dont do what they tell you they will do. Very difficult to get in touch with. You call the receptionist she takes your number ans someone is supposed to call back but they call the next day or not at all.

I always wanted to Have my wedding reception at leonards .. its a beautiful place and all the staff is so nice (till you pay in full, then they stop caring about you). I would have paid 3x the amount i paid at leonards if i would have know my dad would turn out so HORRIBLE. I made a Complaint to the BBB and i will include what i wrong in this review..
Wedding -5/25/12, There were many things that went wrong on my wedding day and i am seeking a partial refund. The elevator was out of service and my dad is handicapped as well as my mom,aunt and grandma..My parents and some family missed 20 minutes of my cocktail hour waiting around for the staff to clear the service elevator becausse the GM said they were cleaning it, then the owner bobby told us that they could not put people in the service elevator. Then they dropped entrees for table 1 and 2 (my parents and inlaws).. table 5 ate before table 1 and 2. My maitre D didnt tell me that my food was on the table so by the time i noticed it it was cold.. I needed to get into my bridal suite and i coudlnt find the maitre d or bridal attendants to open the door which was locked.. I waited in the hallway for 10-15 minutes so that i could use my bridal suite bathroom and so that i could fix the bussel on my dress.. then the maitre d forgot to put my cake topper on my cake. They dropped one of the tables for veancean hour. The glass was broken all over the floor and i had to request for them to clean it up more then once.. The service was HORRIBLE!!.. This was something that i looked forward to for my whole life.. i planned this event for 2 years.. i work to hard and my money went down the drain. I feel like my wedding day was ruined. a complete DISATER.
I would like for a redo of my wedding but that is unrealistic... Nothing can compensate for my day being RUINED but maybe we can start with a refund of 50% or more.
