Highly Recommended. We got married at Marina about a month ago. When we were searching for venues we visited about 15 places and when we found Marina del Rey we stopped looking. We had an outdoor ceremony and our reception in the Venetian hall. Regardless of what room you choose they will exceed all expectations. Tori Grasso planned our entire wedding and the night of we had Tony Orzo as the Maitre D. During the planning stage they were so flexible and understanding. I was very happy every step of the way. I never had to worry. They also gave a day of attendant, she was absolutely amazing. They catered to our every need and that of the guest.

The food was absolutely delicious!!! The cocktail hour was enough to fill up the guests but of course they exceed all expectations so on top of the incredible cocktail hour they had a delicious dinner awaiting. Our guests had several entree options including Sea Bass which was popular...I am still hearing about how our wedding was the best because of the food!

Bottom line....They will exceed all expectations and you will have no worries at all on your day...you will get to dance, eat, and have a blast :)

The Marina del Rey is a beautiful venue with amazing service and outrageous food! My husband and I just had our reception there on July 26th and everything was amazing! Joe Savino was wonderful during the planning process and couldn't have done more for us! Many of our guests are still raving about our wedding and were so impressed with everything the Marina del Rey has to offer! Being from Long Island, we knew there were so many wonderful venues to choose from; however, the Marina del Rey was definitely worth the trip to the Bronx! Thank you to Joe Savino and the Marina del Rey for making our wedding so beautiful and so memorable! We'll see you for our first born's christening :0)

My wedding at Marina del Rey was wonderful! The scenery has a water view featuring 2 bridges; the ceremony takes place in an outdoor pagoda,weather permitting.
The food is excellent and plentiful. There is a cocktail hour with a huge selection of food and a great dinner after that.
We had a wonderful team of people running the affair like a well-oiled machine. Thank you Joe Orzo, Ralph and Tonya for all your attention to detail and help.
We and our guests were delighted with the entire affair.

Marina Del Rey is truly a gem in the Bronx. I am so happy I picked them for my reception venue. The food, decor and matre d' were amazing. My guests would not stop raving about the cocktail hour and dinner. It was just amazing. I want to thank Tori and the staff for all they did to make this night a reality for my husband and I. We will never forget it. I would recommend this venue to anyone. My only call out was that two wedding cards were left on the tables and not returned. I know it isn't the venue's fault that guests left them but I wish they would have been returned.

This is my first time using Wedding Wire, and I just wanted to write about my recent wedding at Marina del Rey. After searching all over the tri-state area for a perfect venue, Marina del Rey stood out. The gorgeous pier and water views, the lovely outdoor gazebo, and the tremendous cocktail and reception rooms did it for us. Tori Grassi did an incredible job organizing our wedding, and Joe Orzo was the most AMAZING maitre'd -- not once did we feel alone or mismanaged. We were SPOILED ROTTEN -- the bridal suite and the bridal attendant really put our experience over the top. The PROFESSIONALISM is unparalleled here: not once did we feel taken advantage of. Extra stations were added to our cocktail hour -- which really helped our combined Indian-Jewish wedding! -- and the lobby champagne bar *knocked the socks off of our guests.* We were told over and over by our guests that this was the best wedding they had ever attended. I cannot say enough about Marina del Rey except that ALL brides need to have their weddings here if you are a New York tri-state resident! LOVE YOU, MARINA DEL REY!

Where do I begin?!? Marina Del Rey was PERFECT!!! We had our ceremony and reception at Maria Del Rey. Before the ceremony guests were greeted in the main foyer with champagne and drinks. Then the ceremony was held outside in the gazebo, with was absolutely breathtaking! Then there was the cocktail hour followed by the reception.
Let me start by giving you mine and my husbands thoughts on the Marina Del Rey, then I will tell you the feedback we got from our guests.
The Marina Del Rey took care of our every want, need, and desire with ease and professionalism. They said "its your day, so you just let us know what you want and we will take care of it". We each were provided with a bridal suite to get ready it. The boys were happy with their drinks of choice, and they girls were sipping on champagne while getting ready. The bridal attendant Tanya, was excellent. She pretty much anticipated my every need and took care of things right away. Tanya was AWESOME!
The reception was perfect, everything done exactly as we wanted it without a single mistake. At the end of the night everything was packed up for me and ready to go, I didn't have to worry about a thing.
Honestly, the whole team at the Marina del Rey were amazing!!
A few feedbacks from our guests;
"that was the best wedding ever"
"That was the classiest wedding I have ever been to"
"the food was amazing! so much food we were stuffed by cocktail hour"
"the most amazing salmon I have ever had"
"the most beautiful wedding venue"

All in all ladies, if Marina Del Rey is on your list of possible venues, I highly recommend it. These guys know what they are doing and they do it very well. The venue is stunning, the staff are amazing, the whole team are dedicated to make sure your wedding day is the best day of your life. I wouldn't change a thing!

This place is EXCELLENT overall! The personal service and the capability for such service is excellent! The only reason I gave a 4/5 star on one thing is because my Maitre'D dropped the ball on containing my guests. We showed up to do an early look photo session and people were all over the venue when they should have been sheparded to remain in the parlor. Also my maitre'd was not that nice to my photographer. I think she was getting on his nerves because she wanted to walk all over the place and photograph. I am going to follow up on this in person. One other small thing, there was confusion as to which room was for my groomsmen and the bride. I was not amused to find us all in the same room when we were suppose to be separate initially.

That aside - the venue was STUNNING! The set up was classic and the location is one of the BEST I have seen in the city and the BEST value for your buck if you want to be married onsite.

The food - hands down - THE BEST!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Best price in the city and even though you come for a tasting, the actual meal was even better!!!

We had heard such great things about Marina prior to our wedding that we were almost waiting for them to mess up- but that certainly did not happen. Marina helped us throw a wedding that our guests are still raving about. Some guests told us it was the best wedding that they ever went to and no one can stop raving about the food. Marina puts everything together flawlessly and treated us like royalty on our wedding day. Our guests were also treated great- being offered second helpings of the main dishes (of which we had 7 options!).

I was hesitant that it would be too traditional for some of my non-traditional requests, but they delivered on everything I asked for, and even accommodated some food changes for my husband's Portuguese family. They gave us everything we asked for and more (like a pound of my husband's favorite cookies to take home after the wedding). I can't wait to be a guest at a Marina wedding in July so I can experience it all over again!

Our wedding at Marina Del Rey was beautiful. On the day of the wedding, every detail was attended to and the service was fantastic. We have recieved so many compliments on the food and the venue itself. It seemed that there were even more dishes than we even agreed to for the cocktail hour. The transition between the ceremony, cocktail hour and reception were very smooth.
The reason I did not give this review 5 stars is because leading up to the wedding, I felt like there was a lack of communication between the venue and myself. In the end, any doubt or worry that I had were unfounded. It did leave me feeling frustrated up until the day.
I can't stress enough how beautiful and smooth our wedding ending up being. They really focus on every detail and all of our needs were met on that day.

Thanks to the Marina del Rey and their amazing staff, my husband and I had our dream wedding. Everything that we could have wanted, they made possible.

I absolutly loved every moment and that was because of how professional and thoughful the staff was! They made sure I enjoyed my wedding, which most brides know isn't always possible. I cannot thank them enough!

Loved Marina Del Rey! It was our last venue that we went to visit and it was perfect. Great view, great venue, great food. The guests raved about the cocktail hour and the all night open bar. I loved the service, the maitre'd and bridal attendant were amazing! They were also very flexible, I provided my headcount and seating arrangement on the Wednesday before my Friday wedding. It was amazing, now I just want to be invited as a guest to a Marina wedding so that I can fully enjoy the event! Highly recommended!

I can't say enough about my experience at the Marina. Everything leading up to the day went perfectly when them. They are so personalized and easy to deal with. They were always easy to get in touch with! When the day came, I had people following me around asking me if I needed a drink, any special requests, etc. They were professional 110% of the time. In addition, the food was EXCELLENT, and for the value, they give SO MANY choices for our guests to choose from. The view of the bridges is amazing and it's great for pictures! Overall I give the Marina and their staff a 5/5!!

I couldn't be happier with my wedding reception. Every single person who attended it has told me that it was the nicest wedding that they had ever been to. That is thanks to the wonderful people who work at the Marina del Rey. When we were booking our wedding, we knew that we wanted to look there because we had attended weddings there and the food was excellent. When we went to book, we met with one of the maitre'ds and he was so accomodating of what we wanted. He made planning our event easy and fun. The food was outstanding, the views were priceless, and the wait staff was couteous and helpful. When it came to the reception, everything was perfect. I couldn't have asked for anything more!!!

The food was outstanding, the views were priceless, and the wait staff was couteous and helpful. When it came to the reception, everything was perfect. I couldn't have asked for anything more!!!

If you want your guests to walk away saying "That was the most incredible wedding I've ever been to" or "wow, that was just totally over the top" - then go with the Marina del Rey. My wife and I looked at a number of venues in Westchester and Manhattan, and the Marina had it all right from the start (the extensive menus, the breathtaking views, the gorgeous ballrooms, and the most competitive prices ANYWHERE) ... meeting with Tori Grassi helped us seal the deal as far as signing the contract - she treated us like GOLD from start to finish. So a few months later, we go to the tasting, and we were extremely impressed. Only problem at the tasting was that the pasta was mushy (I like it al dente) - but everything else was "to die for." Then, finally, this past Friday May 7 2010, we had the actual wedding. Let me just say, "WOW" ... after letting Tori know about our issue with the pasta at the tasting, she obviouly listened because the pasta that came out for 230 people was al dente! Just how we wanted it. The cocktail hour was right out of a movie - the raw seafood bar, the sushi station, the trattoria station, I could go on and on ... the main courses were unbelievable, and of course the Viennese hour will have your guests talking for years and years to come. So, the AMOUNT, the QUALITY, and the CONSISTENCY of the food alone speaks for itself when you consider marina del rey - of course it should, they've been in business for 38 years or something. But what struck my wife and I the most was the level of service. Incredible, beyond words. Our matre'd was Joe Savino, and let me just tell you - he treated us like family and was detail oriented down to the smallest requests my bride had. He remembered everything! And took care of us like we were his children. WOW WOW WOW is all we could say. I can't imagine why anyone would ever consider Surf Club, Villa Barone, VIP, Glen Island, Fountainhead, or any of those places. They don't compare! Not only have I been to plenty of weddings, but I know people who have been plenty of weddings .. and NO ONE has talked about a wedding the way they're buzzing about the one I just had. They said it was like a Platinum Wedding you'd see on TV (of course, our choice of vendors, flowers, etc contributed to that) but the foundation of the party is the caterer - and Marina Del Rey came through 200 percent for us. I will recommend them till the day I die.

Ralph and his crew took very good care of us on our wedding day. From the first meeting, we knew we had chosen the perfect venue -- from the decadent food, the top-notch service, amazing views of the NYC skyline and bridges, etc. The planning process went very smoothly, with Ralph (the owner) and Tory (an assistant manager) guiding us through every step. In NY, when you mention Marina del Rey, the first comment is always "The food is amazing!" And that certainly held true for us. From the fantastic cocktail hour (mini crab cakes, pasta, sushi, baby lamb chops), to the dinner (Prime rib, lobster tails) to the dessert (Italian pastries, and our wedding cake: 4-tiered chocolate cake with raspberry mousse) everything was absolutely delicious. Our guests raved about the food, ambiance, and views. Our Maitre d' took excellent care of us, attending to us and our guests and ensuring that everything moved along smoothly. My one complaint was that the bridal attendant is only there for the cocktail hour (which we didn't even attend because we were taking pictures) and if I didn't have a day-of coordinator and fantastic maid of honor, I would've had some problems taking care of things on my own during the night. Also, some of my guests told me that their waiters were not attentive nor did the staff put favors out on every place setting as we had asked (we had over 2 dozen favors left over, which we only realized after the wedding, meaning I paid for 30 favors that never got placed.) But, nothing is perfect and these are small things in an otherwise smooth production. Thank you, Marina del Rey!

We hosted our daughter and new son-in law's Wedding 10-31-09 at The Marina del Rey. Our Wedding Coordinator Tori Grassi and Maitre d' Joe Orzo couldn't have been better! The cocktail hour alone was equal to a wedding in most other venues. Our five course dinner with the choice of 6 entrees really wowed our guests and the food was delicious and served hot all evening. Their white glove service combined with the elegance and beauty of the venue made for a memorable wedding. As if that isn't enough, The Marina welcomes early arriving guests with lovely refreshments in their breathtaking rotunda! Their Viennese Hour is without a peer.For a fabulous affair, Book the Marina del Rey!!!

Service
- We signed our contract with Tori and she is a sweetheart! We wished she could of been our Maitre D for the day but they assigned us to someone else. She always called us back with an answer to any of our questions.
- Our Maitri D was absent during the majority of the event. I did see him walk around from time to time but did not see him contribute very much.
- During the reception we wanted to take pictures with our guests. We were told by the staff (rather harshly i might add) to sit down so the food staff could bring out food. As the bride and groom, I would of hoped they would of worked around us rather than force us to work around their schedule. We didn't think it would of been difficult for them to have walked around us.

Food
-We heard great reviews from our guests about all of the food! They said the Eggplant parmesan was the best they have ever tasted. I was disappointed about the chocolate fondue. It didn't look as extravagant as the display we were shown during our food tasting. They also did not serve our guests pass ordeurves even though it was stated in our contract. That was a huge disappointment. Nonetheless, guest were very pleased with their orders.

Flexibility
-They helped us store all of our party favors, centerpiece decorations and welcome table decorations weeks before our event. Since our reception hall wasnt booked for another party in the morning so they let our florist come in even earlier to prepare everything to perfection.
- The valet service hung our party favors in every car in the parking lot. This was a lot of work but they did it without any reservation.
- We changed our guest count until the day before our event. This was great because you won't believe how many changes you can get even 2 days before your wedding!
- A week before our wedding we decided to have a photobooth. They provided us with everything we needed for this and even gave us the option to have it outdoors if weather permitted.
-There was another event going on but we were still able to take pictures all over their property without bumping heads with the other party.

Value for Cost
-My husband and I saw 30 sites before signing with Marina Del Rey. They had the large space, beautiful views, and a great food choice. It had everything we wanted but we always realized that not everything can be perfect.

They were excellent from the moment we went to go see the place to the day of our wedding. They went above and beyond what we asked and expected. The Banquet Manager personally went around to each guest and asked them if they wanted seconds (which we never saw before at a wedding). He added more services by the time the wedding took place for the same price.

They had great ideas and were very organized. The view and newly renovated decor sold me the minute I saw them. I had never been to a party at the Marina so I was a little nervous but there was no need to be the food was amazing. I wish we got to eat more of it. The staff, our captain and of course Joe were all so wonderful.

We're hoping someone will invite us to their wedding at Marina del Rey so we can enjoy the food and venue without being the centers of attention. Joe personally passed around seconds. He managed his staff flawlessly. The entire wait staff was friendly and attentive.
Our guests didn't stop talking about the appetizers at the cocktail hour and the size and flavor of the entrees.

The Marina Del Rey did a fantastic job with everything! The food was abundant and excellent! You might not think that a catering hall could produce such amazing quality food, but they sure pull out all all the stops. My guests could not get enough. The service was top notch and they were will to go above and beyond for all of our requests.
I was not your typical bride and I did not want a traditional wedding, but here I was in a very traditional place. They worked with me to put in place all of my non-traditional details and transform the space into what I was thinking - right down to my paper straws for the bar!
I highly recommend!

The Marina del Rey was absolutely incredible. This hall had it all - the food, the view, the room, everything - and all for a great price. The food was some of the best I have ever had at a catering hall. Our Venetian hour exceeded anything I could have ever imagined. We had 90 feet of tables filled with pastries, fruit, cake, zeppoles, cordials, and the list can go on.

The room had incredible views of the water and bridges, and what was great was that we had access to the patio throughout the evening. At one point, some of our older guests wanted to get a break from the music and sit outside. Their waiter actually served them their coffee and desserts outside so that they could continue to enjoy. They were so pleased with this!

Additionally, three busses of our guests arrived almost an hour early because there was less traffic than expected. The Marina accommodated all of these guests upon their arrival and opened the doors to cocktail hour early. Our Maitre D - Joe Orzo was great with making the night run smoothly, and our bridal attendant Tanya was awesome.

This was the perfect place to get married!

I had gone to other elaborate-looking places first, but I found them a little rigid to work with and I heard mixed reviews about the food in some of the places. I actually finally went to the Marina Del Rey. The people at the Marina were very willing to work with me and were flexible with the menu. It is really situated in a picturesque location with a lovely view of the 2 bridges (Whitestone and the Throggs Neck).
Everyone loved the food, and they had a beautiful setup for the cocktail hour. People still tell me what a wonderful evening it was.
They are very professional and have years of experience.
