I had my wedding at the Montauk Club in July of 2015. It was absolutely wonderful! Throughout the planning process both the Manager, Rido, and his assistant, Sarah, were very responsive and easy to work with. We had the ceremony upstairs followed by cocktails in the same space. The reception was held in the first floor dinning room. The food, of which there was an abundance, was all delicious. The service ran smoothly - the servers and bartenders did a fabulous job. The ambiance was perfect for the feeling we wanted - very old New York and romantic with a lot of character. It's also a great value for New York City. I would absolutely recommend the Montauk Club for a wedding!!

The Montauk was a beautiful setting and the food was really great. I have 2 issues with the service we received from the club. There was some confusion post wedding on remaining balances that was unsettling to say the least. I think they are going through some management transitions and hopefully this is just a growing pain. The second was the bar staff. Our wedding was beer and wine only and about half of our guests didn't drink alcohol. The bar staff was disappointed with the tips they were receiving and they let us know it. At one point a member of our wedding party asked for a diet coke and the bar tender pushed the tip jar forward before he gave my friend the diet coke. Extremely unacceptable.

I loved my venue. Old New York, very vintage, dark wood & stained glass... What is there not to like? We fell in love with this with the Montauk Club after seeing pictures online. It's not your traditional venue. It's a social club in an old mansion in Park Slope. The day of your wedding, you have both floors just for you event. The food is delicious, Sanya, the club manager is is great, Victor, the Maitre'D is super friendly & attentive, Sara, Sanya's assistant & the hostess the night of your wedding is just so superb.
The only drawbacks here is the limited flexibility regarding price (no negotiating, the price is the price regardless). As this isn't a traditional catering hall, we took it for what it was, but given the chance to try & negotiate, who wouldn't? But with adding a platter here and open bar, etc., it's not a cheap venue in the least. It's definitely Manhattan prices, but the service is comparable to that.
Regardless of that though, we were very happy with our choice. If I were to do it all again, I would've chosen Montauk Club all over again.

We recommend the Montauk Club for a couple who is looking for old New York charm, a great Park Slope location, and a classy but not pretentious atmosphere. You will need a day of coordinator, which they themselves will tell you. You have the whole club to yourself on your wedding day. If you stick with the gold package with just beer and wine, it is a reasonable cost for a Brooklyn wedding.

Our actual wedding day exceeded our expectations- the food was great, the staff was great, and something about the club just makes you want to dance!

The Montauk Club was the perfect venue for our wedding! The architectural design of this building is striking from the outside (my husband actually stumbled upon it randomly before we got engaged). The inside is also magnificent in its detail and elegance. The ceremony was held upstairs on the second floor, which boasts an array of beautiful stained-glassed windows that look stunning in the photos as the backdrop. The reception was held downstairs in a grandiose space dotted with chandeliers and rich colors. Again, this room looks beautiful inside, but even more striking in the photos.

Sanya, who coordinates the weddings at the Montauk is a delight. She worked with us through several changes and had some great ideas for what to do with the space and how to coordinate the day. She also worked with us as we tried to incorporate many cultural elements, including a processional line led by African drummers that started from outside the building.

For a reasonable cost, the Montauk Club was a spectacular venue that accommodated our needs and looked even more impressive when we got our photos back.

I held my ceremony and reception at the Montauk Club. The Club is a gorgeous historic building and provided a beautiful venue for our wedding. Sanya, the club manager, and other club employees were generally responsive to our concerns and tried to meet any of our individual concerns. The food was very good, and the waitstaff did a great job with the service. The club employees were very professional and friendly. One word of advice in response to previous reviews: Sanya made it very clear during our initial meeting that the club does not provide any type of coordination. They are responsible only for the food and beverage service, therefore Sanya strongly advised us to hire a wedding planner for the day of. We followed her advice and our wedding was absolutely flawless.

First off, the Montauk Club is an absolutely gorgeous, historic space in Brooklyn. The architecture and stained glassed windows are beautiful. At first glance this space seems very affordable, but beware they will nickel and dime you over everything. We were not only asked to provide platters for the chocolate covered strawberries that we paid the club extra for, but they wouldn’t even split the cost with us to have their piano tuned.

Dealing with the management, particularly Sanya, was such a hassle. Emails were rarely answered in a timely fashion and when they were our questions weren’t fully answered. We didn’t find out until the night before, when we inquired on our own, that Sanya wouldn’t be present at the club the day of our wedding, which caused quite a few things to go awry since she was our only point of contact throughout the planning process.

One of the biggest problems seems to be a lack in communication between management, the staff, and the people that live on the top two floors of the building. We arrived at the venue to discover that there was a stoop sale happening right outside the venue. My husband spoke with the people and they were more than happy to remove their things, but told us the venue never tells them when they are having weddings. Also, the staff at the club was walking through the back of the room during our ceremony and causing a bit of a disturbance.

The thing that upset me the most was that I has asked repeatedly if a few slices of cake could be set aside when it was being cut in the back so I could mail them to my best friend that couldn’t make it to the wedding. I was told every time that the club could do this for me no problem and they would even provide the airtight containers. When I went to pick up my remaining cake the day after the wedding, it wasn’t there. After a series of emails with Sanya, I was left with no apology and I was told that it was my fault for not following up with them the night of the wedding. Its no surprise the club is broke with the way they treat people who rent their space.

In all honesty, it is such a shame. It’s a beautiful, historic venue, in a great location, but it will never become a great wedding venue until there is a complete restructure of their management and the way they do business.

The Montauk Club was the perfect venue for our wedding--our friends and family are still talking about what a wonderful time they had.

To start, the throwback setting is beautiful with the dark woodwork, stained glass windows, and gothic architecture...full of character; the opposite of the boring, sterile hall or hotel ballroom venues.

The service was wonderful--Sarah is amazing and she went above and beyond to help us not only the day of the event but every step of the way! She helped by supplying sample floorplans and even helped me visualize by moving the tables around one evening in preparation to finalize our plans. The bartender, Antonio, went above and beyond to accommodate our not so easy to find special craft beer requests which was greatly appreciated from two self proclaimed beer snobs, ha. The floor captain and servers did a great job and were very accommodating. Sanya responded timely to all of our emails and ensured our vision for the evening was carried out.

The food was amazing! We weren't sure what to expect when we signed the contract as you cannot taste the exact food on the wedding menu, rather when you become a member of the club you can go for dinner and try various things on the menu to get a sense of the food and what is good. While it would have been nice to try beforehand, the chef far exceeded our expectations. We chose the pork tenderloin and the beef sirloin which was carved by the staff. Both meats were outstanding, full of flavor and very tender. We substituted the salad with the truffled macaroni and cheese which was the best menu decision. It was so delicious, some of our foodie guests actually emailed the Montauk Club attempting to get the recipe! The Chef also went above and beyond providing delicious cheese and cracker plates in the bridal suite so we wouldn't get too woozy from all of the champagne. This was much appreciated.

The only negative of the evening was the temperature in the club once the dancing started. Unfortunately, the air conditioning had not yet been serviced so it got pretty steamy when we were tearing up the dance floor. There is also a noise ordinance so windows could not be opened in excess. The staff were as accommodating as possible though bringing in fans to cool us off.

All in all, I highly recommend the Montauk Club for a wedding venue. We were extremely pleased after a most memorable evening : )
