We did our fair share of market research and selected this place since its a historical building in Brooklyn. The staff was great and the manager was fantastic. They were very accommodating and kind throughout the entire planning process. The building itself looks like an Italian palazzo and the interior will take you back into the 1930s. The cocktails were amazing and the food for the reception was exactly what we asked for. The chef is truly brilliant. If you're looking for a venue to take your guests back to another era - this is the place for you. Our wedding was just magical!

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 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 : )

Our wedding here last month truly was amazing. To start with the obvious, this is a magnificent historical building that requires minimal alteration or decoration to make it a classic and unique wedding venue. Part of the amazing value is that included in the basic cost was set up and use of the club's tables, linens, and chairs-- for all three parts of our evening: ceremony, cocktail hour, and dinner/reception.

Food/catering: Chef Mark was incredibly accommodating and met with us personally to help go over the menu. Direct contact with him was prompt and responsive. We especially liked the focus on menu items that were sourced locally and sustainably. We have gotten rave reviews from our guests about the taste and quality of the food. We had passed hors d'oeuvres during cocktail hour and went with the buffet during dinner (our preference to begin with but also most logical in the somewhat tight space downstairs). My wife and I managed to try everything from the buffet and I really had no complaints! The kitchen was also very helpful for outside toast and dessert items.

Bar service: Antonio is a seasoned bartender and was incredibly accommodating with cocktail requests and the volume of our max capacity wedding. They really hustled during cocktail hour and kept a great pace during reception. Top shelf alcohol and service.

Service staff: The staff helping during the wedding was really efficient, friendly, and generous. None of the issues in prior reviews re: buffet serving or limitations was an issue for us. In fact, about 10 minutes before the buffet closed they went around to our guests letting them know there was plenty more food and they could come for more before it was set down. We did get a little nervous before the wedding when set up seemed to be running late but it was all for naught: once in action the staff set up everything incredibly quickly and efficiently.

I've seen the negative reviews and complaints. I do think that perhaps as the Montauk Club became more popular as a wedding venue recently, there were some growing pains to handle the volume. But if prior reviews are in fact true, they have done an amazing job stepping it up and becoming a truly exceptional venue to get married in. If I had one area for improvement, it would be the responsiveness and personal attention in the planning stages. While we knew we were one of scores of couples getting married there, it's nice not to feel like you're just another couple.

**An extra note- we got married here while scaffolding was up outside the building for restoration purposes. We were treated respectfully regarding this issue, were compensated for the unexpected construction, and in the end we felt a negligible impact on our wedding due to the scaffolding.

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 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.

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.
