Absolutely, hands down, THE best wedding I have ever been to. You can look at it one of two ways, you might think I am bias because it was my own wedding OR you might be extra impressed because this review is written from the point of view of a critical bride.
Marina Del Rey is obviously an incredibly beautiful venue from the water fountain in the entrance, to the gorgeous gazebo, east river backdrop and city skyline view, but what really makes this venue so remarkable, is the food and most of all the staff.
Lets start with the food... The cocktail hour was so lavish that guests were asking if it was actually the dinner. We happily told them no, they had a choice of 6 entrees made to order, each one, excellent options in their own right.
Now the staff... Joe Orzo, our maitre'd was simply AMAZING, and THAT is an understatement. The entire night flowed seamlessly in his hands, allowing us to actually enjoy the moment and interact with our guests. Denise, was much more than a bridal attendant, taking care of all six of my bridesmaids, as well as the groom and his six groomsmen. I'm not sure of Trisha's title, but she did an incredible job, suggesting and executing last minute touches to the reception area from the cake topper to the bridal table runner.
Marina Del Rey has decades of experience putting together great weddings, and on my big night, it was more than apparent. Thank you Joe and team for making this night better than I could ever have imagined!

We had our wedding at Marina Del Rey in early October and everyone is still raving about the place. Joe Orzo was amazing and the staff was incredible. The food is top notch and the view was amazing. Our guests arrived an hour earlier and Joe and staff did an amazing job to ensure everyone was comfortable and enjoying themselves. Everyone to this day keeps complimenting how amazing the view was for taking pictures and how great the food was!

When it came to Venue my wife and I searched high and low for the best hall. We figured out of the whole wedding this is the most important vendor that you need to book. Guests need to eat, DJ needs to play, Photography needs to be taken, to capture your memories for a lifetime. After searching through numerous vendors my in-law's suggested looking at where they were married 30 years ago. On a Saturday, two years before our big affair in October 2014, I called Joe Orzo who opened the doors to office to sit down, discuss packages, and show off the rooms and kitchen! After meeting Joe, seeing the place, and view of the bridges we imagined our whole day and we immediately booked! Fast forward, 2 years later, Joe worked with my schedule to meet us before the wedding. We sat down with Joe to review the timeline, and received his word our guests would be taken care of if they arrived early. Well Joe stuck true to his word and made sure that our day went perfect. He kept our guests entertained as they arrived earlier then the cocktail hour, he made sure there was plenty of food, excellent wait staff, and made sure the evening flowed perfectly. What more could we ask for, we had a perfect day at a perfect venue all thanks to Joe. We are happy we booked and never regretted the decision one bit, especially coming from Monmouth County NJ. We received our video and pictures and the scenery is gorgeous. Take advantage of this place because you get great food, and great picture settings!

I was extremely pleased with our choice of venue for our daughter's wedding. The staff is professional, knowledgable and accommodating. The Marina is beautiful, the food is delicious and there is such a variety and the presentation is out of this world. No one went hungry the food was plentiful and replaced promptly at the cocktail hour. There were seven choices for dinner each was cooked to perfection and my guest are still raving about the food.
Everyone worked well together and everything ran smoothly my guest were thrilled and had a fabulous time. Joe Savino helped us plan the perfect event and gave us expert advise. I did not have to worry about a thing. I love this venue and would highly recommend it for any occasion.

I can't say enough about marina del Rey. I was married there in August and it was the best decision I made about the whole wedding. The service is fantastic, and they have by far the best cocktail hour of any venue around. Joe Orzo is super professional and calmly guides you through every step of the wedding. I highly suggest having your wedding here.

I don't even know where to begin to describe how FABULOUS our wedding at Marina del Rey was. From the moment we walked in there over a year ago to the planning and all of my (1 million) questions and requests, they were A W E S O M E. We had the pleasure of working with Joe Orzo, who is probably one of the greatest people we've met! Period! He has such an amazing personality and you can tell he truly cares about what he does and the clients he takes care of. My husband and I are truly blown away by everything he did for us. I wish I could write a review about Joe Orzo alone and give him 10 STARS. Just awesome! The venue itself is GORGEOUS, and the views speak for itself. The food is outstanding, outstanding and everything is so clean and smells so good. It really is a phenomenal place to host your special day. We are so grateful to have been recommended to this place and have our beautiful wedding at the Marina del Rey. Don't let me leave out how amazing the bridal attendants are! We are blessed to have chosen this place! Thank you so much Joe Orzo and the team at Marina del Rey! You truly are fabulous.

We could not have asked for a better wedding experience with Marina Del Rey. Joe Orzo was an amazing event manager. He was very instrumental in helping us through all the details of our day and easing any concerns. The staff that assisted on our actual wedding day were also outstanding and all played a key role in making sure our wedding flowed flawlessly.

Joe Orzo made us feel at home from our very first visit and made it easy for us to have no doubt that we chose the right place to have our wedding. He was patient, flexible, and always made us feel like our wedding was important rather than just another client. The care we received, from beginning to end, was priceless and really made a difference in having a stress-free event.

The venue was beyond amazing and we were fortunate enough to have a beautiful day where we were able to use the gazebo and wonderful outside backdrop. All our guests were treated very well and they still talk about how our wedding was such a great experience from the delicious (and plentiful) food, venue, and service. Without hesitation we would recommend Marina Del Rey as a premier venue to host a wedding or special occasion.
