I usually don't write reviews about anything but I couldn't ignore what an amazing job everyone at Samuel's Grande Manor did to make my daughters' wedding absolutely perfect. We had a very large wedding (263 guests) and I can not think of one thing I would have changed about the entire day. Everyone I have talked to said it was one of the best weddings they had ever been to. The staff was so helpful and professional. They went out of their way to get things just right. The food was outstanding. I would recommend this place to anyone who wants to make their daughters dreams come true.

To sum up Samuel's in one word - amazing!
I had my wedding reception here in the West room. First off, even before the big day, Samuel's was very helpful and responsive to my questions and concerns. I always felt like I was #1 for them, and there were eight weddings total my weekend (so it's not like they were only catering to me).
They also have a great selection for appetizers and meals. The appetizers were delicious and guests raved about the food in general! And they are very accommodating in terms of needing gluten free, vegetarian, etc options.
They also set up the room beautifully for my reception. It was picture perfect. All night they ensured my husband and I were well taken care of. We were both too full to eat much of our dinners and they offered to box up what we had left, which I thought was very nice.
The bartenders were exceptional as well, very efficient keeping at the line to a minimum.
I just cannot say enough good things about Samuel's! Thank you for making my reception go off without a hitch.

Samuel's Grande Manor did a great job for our wedding. They were very well organized. I had given them an approximate schedule of events and our captain did a great job of keeping things on track. It was great for me not to worry about what time it was and what I had to do next. They were also very attentive and kept asking myself and husband how things were going and if anything else was needed. Everyone raved how good the food was. I was actually surprised how well cooked the filet was since it can be hard to cook and serve that many filets at once. We also had a few vegetarians and they commented on how delicious and large the vegetarian entree was. The ceremony site and reception room (Josephine Room) was gorgeous and we got a lot great pictures. Samuel's Grande Manor was very reasonably priced for what we got. I'd definitely recommend it. My only complaint was their DJ Debbie - She was very nice and professional. She played our requested songs. However, we would have liked her to be a little more engaging in trying to get people out on the dance floor. She pretty much just put the song and that was it. With that being said, my husband and I had an awesome time at our wedding!

We chose Samuel's Grande Manor because it's absolutely beautiful and affordable. Samuel's included so many "extras" in our price per plate that there was no contest anywhere else. The night went super smooth, thanks to Dawn, our captain, who was an enormous help. Samuel's does weddings....and does them well. We cannot say enough good things about them....you will not be disappointed!

We had an amazing wedding day at Samuel's in June. The outdoor ceremony space is beautiful and feels intimate with the landscaping. We were planning from out-of-state, and the venue made it easier on us. They have a caterer on-site and a DJ (for the upstairs rooms). The food options were great, and we received a lot of compliments, especially about the Filet Mignon. Our DJ, Debbie from Samuel's Sound, was wonderful to work with. We held the reception in the Josephine Room -- it has been recently updated and is gorgeous and inviting. It also has a porch, which our guests enjoyed. The staff will put a lot of effort and care into making your day special.

Samuel's was always my dream venue for my wedding reception, but we thought for sure that it would be out of our budget, so my now-husband and I booked at the Hearthstone Manor. 3 months before our wedding date we found out that the Hearthstone was closing and that we'd have to find a new hall. Panic ensued and my mother immediately called Samuels, knowing that it was my dream venue.

Miraculously and to our relief, Samuel's had one room left that would fit our expected count. Sue was so incredibly compassionate, friendly, and an absolute pleasure to work with. She was so very patient through what was such a very stressful time for us. She went above and beyond to put together a package that was not only within our budget but included everything we had planned at the Hearthstone plus WAY more. She was very responsive, always answered emails quickly, and went so above and beyond to make our day magical.

Sue and her staff were very organized and efficient and paid such close attention to the fine details - our room was set up perfectly and looked gorgeous. Our hor 'derves were DELICIOUS, we had so many people tell us how great they were. The swedish meatballs, crab cakes, jalapeno poppers, deviled eggs, etc. were all outstanding! Dinner was also delicious - we had a choice of filet mignon, chicken Samuel, and stuffed sole. My sister in law had me try the sole and it was *to die for* it was so good. Absolutely outstanding food. Our captain Dawn was also fantastic - so accommodating and helpful. The rest of the wait staff and bartenders were also courteous and great. Two managers - one the GM named Mark and another young gentleman checked on us periodically and made sure everything was going good. Overall amazing service - amazing food - amazing space. I couldn't be a happier bride and I would book Samuel's again in a heartbeat!!! Thank you for the wedding of my dreams!

Everything about my reception at Samuel's turned out great. They were very responsive in the time before the wedding, answering any questions we had. They were always very professional and friendly to deal with. Every detail was gone through thoroughly so I felt confident things would run smoothly when the wedding day came. As expected, things went great. The food and service was perfect. We had the Samuel room upstairs for our wedding and it was the perfect size for the number of guests we had (just over 130). Our captain was very attentive and the staff made sure to check in with my husband and I that we had everything we needed, enough food/drinks, etc. Everyone seemed to really enjoy the wedding, would definitely recommend them!

Samuel's Grande Manor was great! The room was absolutely beautiful! We had the west room, and they had just redone the room and it was so nice!! The room sparkled! The day before we had dropped off so much stuff for the room I thought their jaws were going to drop to the floor. But they set it all up the exact way we wanted it, we couldn't have asked for a more beautiful night! And the food was amazing! Everything was great!

Samuel's Grande Manor was Perfect. We loved our venue, the food was outstanding, and Sue helped us with every aspect of the big day as she could. My only complaint is that everything felt kind of rushed the day of our wedding. But that was just bad communication issues between our day-of coordinator and our dj. Both of them had different itineraries for some reason. Not sure how or why but no one even remembers us cutting our cake because we were so rushed into it. Overall though, I would definitely recommend to anyone.

We were moved into the center room and it was beautiful, the food was delicious and we got so many rave reviews from our guests. We had to move the ceremony inside as the rain didn't hold off, but it actually turned out really pretty! I would recommend them to anyone!

Hi Mark
Just want to let you know how glad I am I came to Samuel's for my son's wedding ceremony and the luncheon afterwards.
Your professionalism showed in the way everything was handled. You really were very helpful for helping us have a fantastic Barat (wedding procession) from the back of your parking lot and then the beautiful wedding ceremony for which the venue was absolutely amazing.
The food was wonderful. I received so many compliments for the food and the venue and the fantastic service. You and your staff were wonderful and really helped make the wedding and luncheon amazing.
Some of my guests who had never been to Samuel's thought very highly of Samuel's after the wonderful show you put on.
Thank you for everything

Samuels Grande Manor was an excellent place to have a wedding reception. Everything went smoothly and they are on top of every detail. There is nothing to worry about. The baked Alaska dessert and presentation was very impressive. I would highly recommend their Samuels DJ. The DJ, Debbie was the best part of the entire event. She was very helpful both before the event and during. She helped me with the planning and was very friendly and resourceful.

We could not have asked for a better venue for our wedding celebration nor people to work with. Mark and Sue were great and very accommodating to us. We had to reschedule a couple of times due to health issues and they were always gracious. We used a cake company and photography company they recommended and were not let down. The cake was the best we've ever had at a wedding and the photographer was fantastic. The food and service were impeccable. The food... OMG! Seriously, the filet mignon was better than at most high end steakhouses. They were all cooked to perfection as each guest wanted, and melted in the mouth like butter. Our families are still talking about it and how classy the whole event was and more than a few wish Samuel's was open for dinner. Mark's punch was a hit with the kids and they had a great time too. We highly recommend Samuel's for any event that is in or near Buffalo (we came from Rochester - an hour + away) and hope to have more occasions to hold celebrations there in the future

Great service. The team captain Pat was excellent. She really made us feel special on this important day. They did a nice job working with the DJ to coordinate all of the events during the wedding.

The only complaint about the food was that the salad was awful and we heard this from over 40 of our guests. There was no dressing and the croutons were soggy. It should have had crisp lettuce with fresh croutons and dressing.

Everything on the day was amazing and a large part was due to Samuels as the venue. The food was outstanding, I had a lot of guests that came up to me and told me how amazing the food was. The room was decorated very tastefully for the Christmas holiday which made it look outstanding. Compared to other vendors in the area the meals were very reasonably priced yet tasted a lot better than wedding food at other more expensive locations in the Buffalo area. The staff was extremely accommodating and there if we needed anything from when I started planning the day til the very end of the reception.

Overall the event went well. There were a few things that I have comments on:

1. When we asked about the bartender tip jars and how we didn't want them, we were told that they never use tip jars. However, there were tip jars out on the bar during our event.

2. We had a 4 1/2 hour bar which was broken down as follows: 6-7, 8:15-11:45. The staff started to break down the tables around 11:00 - while people were still dancing and when we had 45 mins left. This caused people to assume that the event was over which caused the majority of people to leave early. The staff should not have started to break down tables until closer to our end time.

3. The captain that we had was not personable and quite rude towards the end of the night when she realized that she wasn't going to get an "extra tip". I did not see a need to give extra money since we already paid gratuity ahead of time. I think that having the tip jars out on the bar and the expectation of receiving an extra tip is tacky and absurd when gratuity is already included.

But besides those few things, the event went well and we all had a good time.

Samuel's Grande Manor responded with the following comments:

Thank you Ashley for giving high reviews in the majority of the categories.
We are very sorry about your disappointment with the couple of issues you had mentioned.
1) Regarding tip jars on the bar. You are correct in that Tip jars are not put out on the bars, UNLESS the Bride or Groom request them to be either ahead of time or that night. In this particular case the Groom spoke with both the Banquet Captain and the General Manager that evening in the hallway outside the banquet room as guests were beginning to arrive and was very insistent that tip jars be put up on the bar.
2) The bar times were 6:00 pm - 7:00pm and again from 8:00 pm - 11:30 pm (not 8:15 - 11:45) as detailed on the event sheet that was mailed to the couple weeks in advance of the wedding. One of the guests attending the reception was also there early to be sure the centerpieces and other details were followed through with (which they were), This same guest is the one who initiated packing up the centerpieces shortly after 11:00pm and the Banquet Captain and staff assisted her.
3) The Captain who worked that night, How she possibly could have known that she wasn't going to get an "extra" tip is a mystery. She certainly would not have asked for one and it is unlikely that the Bride or Groom would have been so tacky or absurd to volunteer the information that there would be no extra tip.
"quite rude towards the end of the night when she realized that she wasn't going to get an "extra tip"" seems unlikely since she could not have known that there was not going to be a side tip for her and it is never assumed that there will be one. This particular Captain has 30 years experience and is mentioned quite frequently in a very positive light in many of the other reviews. However this review will be discussed in detail with her.
In summary, the tip jar was at the request of the Groom, her guest who assisted with the centerpieces in the beginning was the one who initiated the breakdown, and there is never an expectation of receiving an extra tip.

Absolutely amazing! Everyone from my wedding has complimented Samuel's on their service, food, and the beauty of the place. The night was perfect and the food was exceptional! Sue answered all my emails and phone calls in a very timely manner. She answered all my questions leading up to the event. The process was explained to me at my rehearsal and was carried out exactly as explained. My captain Dawn was wonderful. She made sure everyone in my bridal party had beverages while we were doing our formal pictures and during dinner. She also answered any questions we had, stayed in contact with my photographer and DJ to keep everything on time. Mark the manager checked in to introduce himself and answer questions. The staff was friendly and efficient.

We just had our wedding and reception at Samuel's this past weekend. I can say that I would recommend Samuel's to anyone who wants to have a truly beautiful garden ceremony and a fun reception!! I live out of town but am originally from NY so we wanted to have our wedding in my home state. We were a little apprehensive about the ease in planning a wedding from out of state but it was so easy. Everyone at Samuel's was absolutely terrific to work with. They are extremely efficient, organized, helpful, flexible, responsive and kind. I can say that leading up to the day, I had no worries about the ceremony or the reception (apart for hoping it wouldn't rain!).

Anytime we emailed or called Samuel's, we received responses very quickly and they were always extremely accommodating. All of our guests raved about the ceremony, music, drinks and food. If you are looking for a beautiful place to have a wonderful wedding, Samuel's is the place to go!!!

Samuel's Grande Manor with the help of Sue Manfredo couldn't of been more helpful and accommodating. From the very start all our questions and concerns were answered as well as taken care of.

As the big day got closer and nerves and stress tend to build up Samuel's stepped up their game even more, once you give them the instructions of what you want they came through and took care of everything...from decorations to favors they had everything set up as planned.

The captain they provided for the day went above and beyond taking care of all our needs and even suggesting better options for things we never would of thought of.

The food was raved about by all our guests.

From top to bottom Samuels did a tremendous job and exceeded all our expectations. I would recommend them to anyone for their big day.

We had our wedding ceremony and reception at Samuel's Grande Manor a couple weeks ago and it was AMAZING. From the beginning planning stages until the end of the reception, we could not ask for better service. Sue was very patient in the planning process and took the time to review what we wanted, then we made arrangements from there. The day of the wedding, they were great. Our outdoor ceremony got moved indoors due to rain- but it was a "easy" transition and everything went on without any problems. Our captain, Dawn, for the evening was beyond wonderful! She was there for everything we needed- never had to go looking for her! It was all the little things she did that made our reception that much better- she knew what everyone was drinking and was always refilling, and all the "events" (i.e. speeches, dances, cake cutting) flowed nicely! I would recommend Samuel Grande to anyone- you cannot go wrong and will have the best service from the beginning of the planning process to the last dance of the night!

Our wedding at Samuel's was picture perfect. All of the vendors that were recommended were wonderful as well. We had the Josephine room upstairs and didn't even notice that there were other weddings going on. The food was cooked perfectly, though could have been presented a little more attractively. Sue was very helpful in answering all of my questions throughout the planning process and Renee was an excellent captain for the evening. She made sure I didn't have to think about anything except enjoying myself. One thing to note is that because they have several events at once, the timing of the ceremony, etc. are not flexible. Also, there are only 100 chairs available for the ceremony. I asked for 110 and was turned down. It did not end up being a problem for us though.

Samuel's Grande Manor responded with the following comments:

Thank you Beth for submitting the review and the constructive notes that Beth has mentioned are recognized and will be addressed to better serve our guests.There is a tremendous amount of time spent with our couples helping them remain organized in the planning stages so the day of their event runs smoothly. Remaining on task and on time the day of the wedding is important for our operation to run smoothly and EQUALLY important for the guests of each individual event so they are not burdened with unnecessary delays that will take away from their overall experience and more importantly how they perceive the wedding they are attending. While it may seem to some that are times are not flexible it is important to recognize that are motivation for staying within a reasonable time schedule is truly for the benefit of our guests. All of our Gazebo Ceremony Brides are well informed that we have 100 chairs available (actually have 125) and no one would be turned down for a request for more, there would however be charges associated with renting extra matching chairs. We would not recommend renting extra chairs unless the anticipated number to attend the reception was in excess of 175 knowing that generally about 60-70% attend the ceremony
Thank you,

When my fiance and I first got engaged... I panicked because I didn't know what I had to do or how I was supposed to do it. When we chose Samuel's Grande Manor as our venue, I stopped worrying. They were all absolutely fantastic to work with. My main criteria for a location were that I wanted the ceremony and reception to take place at the same location, so that our guests were not left to occupy themselves for 3 hours while we went and took pictures. I also wanted a location that didn't require me to have the same # of chairs at each table, because I didn't want to group people together just to fill the table. They let me have anywhere from 8 to 12 people at each table. They took care of pretty much everything for me... they set up the centerpieces, put out the favors, displayed our chosen dessert (we didn't want to do cake), etc. I didn't have to worry about a thing and was able to enjoy my wedding day without any stress. They are absolutely phenomenal and I would recommend them to anyone looking to get married in the Buffalo area.

We found Samuel's to be the perfect place for our wedding reception! All of the staff there was very helpful, every step of the way, during our planning process. They really made us feel that they were there for us. The day of our reception, I really felt like I could sit back, relax and let them handle everything and they did. They did ask questions throughout the reception of me and my husband, but these questions were welcomed as I would rather have them ask and do things right than guess. Dawn, who was our event manager the night of, was excellent. She did everything I asked, and thought of things that I didn't. In addition, the facility there looked just beautiful and all of our guests commented on what a wonderful time they had!! :)

My new husband and I worked mostly with Sue throughout our wedding planning. She was wonderful; friendly, funny, and a joy to work with! We planned our wedding at Samuel's from out of town, and Sue made it so easy for us. She was always available by email and our phone calls were returned promptly. We were able to meet with her whenever we came into town last minute. She made the whole process, from booking the venue to dropping off our decorations, seating charts, and favors, enjoyable and as stress-free as possible! Thank you to all of the staff at Samuel's for making our night so special, and thank you to Sue for helping us along the way!

Overall, our experience was wonderful. Everyone was so professional and ready to help, we felt it was the best choice we could have made.

A dream come true.

There were some things, looking back in retrospect, that I would have prepared for....

1) I heard from several of our guests that their drinks were being cleared constantly. They would be out on the dance floor with a full drink on the table. Our guest would come back for their drink and it would be cleared. Not just once but mulitple times. Our guests were trying not to dance with a drinks on the dance floor but then they felt there was no alternative because the attention paid to clearing the table was intense.
2) Several guests came to me about their favors being cleared. We had payed thousands for menus, name cards, card holders and keepsakes. Many of which had been cleared, tossed or disappeared. Even Keith and I do not have our personalized menus, name cards and place card holders. At the end of the meal those things had been cleared. Really nice crystal heart shaped holders. Gone! I even bought extra (approx 10) to take home. I don't have any of those either.

I just wish everyone would have been able to take home these favors, at the very least us. At the end of the night you're given so many things to take home, you assume that among them are your keepsakes. As I went through the stuff, after our honeymoon, that's when I discovered those items were not there. It was over a week so I didn't bother to call Samuel's.

Moving forward, I would just remind the staff to clarify what goes home with the guest, what is just decoration and what gets thrown out. If you're like me and you want all the sentimental details for scrapbooking and posterity, have this important conversation before the event.

We had our wedding and reception at Samuel's on 8/17/12 and couldn't have been happier with everything! We had decided to check Samuel's Grande Manor out after a handful of other Buffalo venues either didn't offer what we'd have liked, or offered little for exorbitant prices. Samuel's packages were reasonably priced, and included so much for what we paid.

We worked with Mark and Sue on both the initial consultation and the details, and both were extremely professional and organized, and even checked on us during our big day to make sure everything went well. I had also spoken to Karyl a handful of times for final billing details, and she was friendly and responsive, and sent me over a copy of the bill promptly so I could get the bank draft that same day. Our room captain was Rinaya (I apologize if I misspelled it), and she was excellent--she kept the groom and groomsmen hydrated while they waited for the rest of us to arrive, and made sure we were comfortable and happy the entire night.

We had a few minor hiccups like a vegetarian not getting a vegetarian meal, but all we had to do was flag down our captain and it was immediately remedied! The service staff were all awesome, from the bartenders, to our captain, to the servers.

We couldn't have been happier with Samuel's as our ceremony and reception location. They are absolutely one of, if not THE best in the business, and I will happily recommend them to all of my friends and family!

Samuels was absolutely amazing to my husband and I. The captain was attentive from the moment I stepped into the door. Once the bartender knew what we liked to drink he would have our drinks made before we stepped to the bar. We didn't need to ask for anything. It has been a month since the wedding and my family and friends are still raving about how great the food and service was.

Thank you to Sue and Mark (and also our Banquet captain!!) for helping make our wedding incredible! It was better than we dreamed of. I was an out of town bride and as you can imagine not being able to see how everything would be laid out was a bit stressful but Samuel's made everything perfect on our big day. From the decor to the food to the service. I have never heard so many people say that our wedding was the best they've ever been to. It wouldn't have been without Samuel's amazing service. Thank you a million times over. We will certainly be recommending Samuel's Grande Manor to everyone!

Samuel's was a great place to have our wedding, the service we received from the Capt. and staff they gave us was amazing. They really took care of us and our families with whatever we needed and were on top of things. Overall the experience was amazing, but there were some hiccups and issues that arose. First thing was our sign directing people to our wedding party, was spelled incorrectly which isnt a huge deal, but it was something I noticed. The second thing was kind of a big thing, my wife was told she could leave her stuff in the office during the wedding, and we could grab it after. When the wedding ended we went to go grab the stuff and what appeared to be bathroom water had leaked through the ceiling from the floor above and was all over everything. Not exactly the way you want to end your night of all nights. We ended up having to wash everything that was in there because everything smelled pretty horrible. I wouldnt consider that something that really could have been helped, but it was still part of our day. Overall our experience was great and we would recommend it to anyone!

We had a great reception at Samuel's. Sue was wonderful-- I emailed a lot, and she took time with every email. Food was delicious...only problem-- we ordered 8 vegetarian meals, and more than those 8 must have asked for it, so 2 people who requested them didn't get a meal (ate baked potatoes off someone else's plates). That made me sad-- wish they could have had extra plates ready just in case (especially since the veggie meals were not as expensive as the steak and chicken but they were the same price). Minor issue, but everything else was PERFECT. Reneea, our captain for the night, was awesome! Would definitely have another event there!

Samuel's Grande Manor responded with the following comments:

Elizabeth was very thorough in providing accurate counts to us for her guests. Guests attending on occasion make requests above and beyond what the couples have ordered and the extra we have prepared. It is always our goal to be sure that every guest attending is provided with a high quality meal and there are procedures we instruct our couples to follow to provide us with these accurate requests. Unfortunately on rare occasion an event may have a significant number of guests who despite being asked to provide the bride & groom with their special requests neglect to do so. We feel that is what happened in this case and are equally disappointed that every guest did not receive the meal they desired.

Samuel's Grande Manor responded with the following comments:

Without knowing (anonymous review) exactly which wedding we are discussing it is difficult to accurately respond to the comment of "extremely pressured". The planning staff spends a considerable amount of time with our couples going into great detail what is to occur when throughout the evening and that sometimes includes the Wedding Ceremony. The most well planned event sometimes needs to have adjustments made the evening of the event and whenever possible we adjust the schedules to best suit our couples new needs or wishes. There are however certain aspects of an events timeline that can only be moved so much and those time points typically have a direct impact on how ALL the guests attending perceive the event as a whole. While the wishes of our couples are always priority number one, ignoring the needs of all our guests could be irresponsible. Our most sincere apology for having our couple feel rushed, I am confident (even without knowing which event this pertains to) that our actions were in the best interest of the couple and all of their guests.

I fell in love with this place from the first day I saw it, it had everything in one place what more can you ask for? Ceremony, reception, parking, and service.The food was great and the service was excellent. I was very satisfied and happy with the results. They were flexiable with meeting my wants and needs. I recommend Samuels to anyone who is looking for a place to do an outside ceremony and have the reception within walking distance, which makes it much easier to accomadate guest. The landscape was absolutely gorgeous setting a great atmosphere for such a special day. The DJ Samuels provided did such an AWESOME job. The DJ was really caring, very easy to work and talk with. The DJ was great with being open and flexiable to the kind of music we wanted. The parking was within walking distance, and they also provided valet parking for your guest. You get what you pay for and Samuels was worth every penny.

Special thanks to Sue, everthing ran wonderfully, as planned. Management stepped up and addressed some issues we had early on. The wedding was perfect in every way. The grounds, gazebo, Josephine room,etc. were all wonderful. Dawn, our captain, kept everything running smoothly and we were well taken care of. Our guests loved the beautiful venue and the food was excellent-must have been good as Dawn let us know that every plate of food was served-no leftovers. The coffee bar was beautiful and the wedding cake and trays of cream puffs, etc. were gone in a flash.
Everyone said it was a totally wonderful wedding. Of course, that's all we could wish for, the most wonderful wedding day for our bride and groom.

We had a fabulous wedding at Samuels and are so glad we chose this venue. Our guests had so much fun and couldn't stop raving about the food, which was one of the combo meals. Dawn, our wedding captain, was on top of everything and did anything we asked. She was extremely flexible and professional, which calmed the groom and I. The servers were prompt and the bartenders attentive. My only regret is that the day came and went so fast!

I was a bit apprehensive when we chose to have our wedding in the US (I live in Canada but my husband is from Clarence). I thought it might make planning complicated. It could not have been easier. I cannot possibly recommend this venue highly enough. From beginning to end the staff were impeccably professional and kind. I will eat most foods without complaint however I'm very reserved when it comes to effusive praise. The filet mignon was extraordinary and the Samuel's Chicken was absolutely delicious. Hors d'oeuvres were scrumptuous! Our captain for the evening was attentive, kind, and uber professional. Mark, Sue, Karel, Margaret, all the staff provided outstanding service. Every detail was looked after and we were able to have the most joyous event of our lives. The guests RAVED about all of it...the food, the beauty of the venue, the staff. I can't imagine a better value is possible anywhere and we looked into a number of venues. We feel truly blessed to have had the privilege of having our wedding reception at Samuel's Grand Manor. I would recommend this venue and the staff to anyone, without reservation! Thank you everyone on staff!

Samuel's is a great venue for a wedding or any large event! The staff is very patient, knowledgeable, and helpful. They are willing to work with any requests or suggestions that someone might have regarding their event. They even let us come in early the day before the wedding and do some set-up since our centerpieces were a bit complicated. The service the day of the wedding was great. We got a lot of compliments on the food (filet and chicken oscar). I would definitely recommend Samuel's to anyone considering them for their event.

Samuels Grande Manor is an amazing place to have a wedding reception. We had our in the middle room on the first floor, during the reception guests could mingle out on the patio or dance the night away inside. It was perfect.
The entire staff is so friendly and accommodating. At your reception you get a "Captain" and staff devoted to your room. Our Captain was Pat, she was awesome! She came and asked how we were doing if we needed drinks as soon as we walked in, she was so attentive to all of our guests. The food was amazing; I wish I would have gotten to actually eat it, but being the bride it seems that we never get to eat. And you definitely get what you pay for! After looking at a few other places we thought that Samuels was the best deal, you get so much for your money.
Thank you to all of the staff at Samuel's! Our reception was awesome!

Our captian, was so kind and so professional. She catered to not only our every whim, but to our guests as well. I had several of my guests tell me what a wonderful person she is!
Samuels made the planning so easy! All of the vendors they recommend, we not only used but them as well!
My frantic emails were answered promptly and kindly. Never once did they make me feel like I was imposing or annoying!
To sum it up, we love, love, love every person there and can't wait to renew our vows to have the Samuels experience again!!

I really can't give enough positive feedback about Samuel's. From our first tour of the venue, all the way through the last moments of our wedding, the staff was warm, friendly, and incredibly helpful. Mark made all of our planning almost seamless, and was simply wonderful to work with. The ceremony space is lovely, and our reception (in the Josephine Room) was fantastic. The food was excellent, though there was a bit too much of it...that the Viennese table went pretty much untouched because our guests were so full was unfortunate, as all of the desserts looked amazing. The staff was attentive and helpful, and Debbie (of Samuel's Sound Services) did a spectacular job with the music. I would highly recommend Samuel's to any couple looking for an elegant yet warm environment for their wedding!

Everyone I spoke with at Samuel's was kind and flexible from start to finish. I planned my wedding from California, and easily made phone appointments to discuss the details. I spoke with Mark frequently via email leading up to the reception.

My parents visited the place in person, and chose the Ashley Room. The pictures on facebook and the website don't really give this room any justice. I was a little bummed that the room was so small, but in person it worked out perfectly for my 75-guest reception. It was an intimate space, with perfectly dimmed lighting, but with enough room to get around. The dancefloor seemed like it would be small, but it worked out just fine. There is a patio that leads outside off of the dancefloor that was nice.

All of the entrees were meat options, but Samuel's easily accomodated those with special dietary restrictions if you notified them in advance. If you are looking for a more complex dessert, I would say go for one of the flambes. We had the peaches jubilee, which was more of a simpler sweet.

Samuel's Sound (DJ service you can elect to have), was very flexible. I believe we had Fred. I planned everything with Debbie over the phone and via email, and she was very friendly and accomodating. We had a last minute change to not have a mother-son dance, and they went with the flow without any bloopers.

My only negative remark would be that our reception was held at the same time as a prom in the main ballroom area. We shared a bathroom the with the high school students. I don't know about the men's room, but the ladies bathroom was full of teens crying, throwing up, and verbally arguing. Too bad, because the bathrooms were beautiful! I heard from some of my guests that there were more people throwing up in the parking lot. I imagine there's not much that could have been done on Samuel's part, but my suggestion would be to plan around a prom event where there aren't massive crowds of teenagers.

Overall, it was a positive experience and I would certainly have another event there in the future.

Samuel's Grande Manor responded with the following comments:

Our apology to the Bride, Groom and their guests for the poor behavior of a few of the students from the Amherst prom. The faculty and chapperones from the prom and the management here were aware of the couple students and resolved the situations as promptly as possible. Every attempt is made to isolate one parties activities from another but unfortunately on rare occasion it takes just one or two bad apples to make things sour.
Congratulation to the Bride & Groom and thank you for your understanding in this matter.

Marc was very wonderful and helped us with everything we needed!!! However when I called in on November 1st and spoke to a carol about my bill. She was very argumentative and very unprofessional about explaining the paperwork I did not receive in the mail. She kept telling me over and over again that I did get them in the mail and I explained to her that I was missing paperwork. I asked her to resend the paperwork to my email because I'm living out of state and she never sent them. Then on November 7th I received a call about my seating and spoke to a woman who does the arrangements of the table and she then put carol again on the phone and once again she was giving me a hard time about the seating telling me that there is going to be odd numbers of chairs to accompany 125. And that to me didn't seem right. So me and my husband went in on the 8th and spoke to marc who handled all the concerns that carol couldn't. She is very unprofessional and I believe if she is argumentative she shouldn't be in the profession of customer service!!!

Samuel's Grande Manor responded with the following comments:

Our most sincere apology to the Bride & Groom and the frustration they experienced attempting to get some of the last minute details finalized. Planning the seating for your reception can be stressful and in this case more time should have been spent discussing in greater detail how to more easily plan the seating and how to accurately arrive at a final count. It is critical to receive this information accurately and it is time sensitive. A more assertive position some times is needed to be taken on behalf of our staff to acquire this information in order to properly orchestrate the event. Again, our most sincere apology to the Bride & Groom for Karyl's possible assertiveness in obtaining the final details, it was never Karyl's intention to be rude or unprofessional.

Samuel's was the perfect vendor for our wedding. The staff took such good care of us and thought of everything we didn't. I was very busy with other things while planning our wedding and the staff at Samuel's stepped in and assisted me. I would not change a single thing about my wedding. We chose most of our other vendor's based on the recommendations from Samuel's and they all were amazing. I would definitely recommend Samuel's for anyone looking to plan a stress free wedding or special event.

Definitely recommend Samuel's for a reception venue!!

We had our wedding at Samuel's Grande Manor on 8/27/11. Everything exceeded our expectations! The food was amazing! We had several guests comment that this was the "best wedding" they had been to in a long time! We also had our ceremony in the gazebo and garden. It was beautiful! My only minor issue is that we were a little rushed for pictures after the ceremony because there was another ceremony scheduled immediately after. Samuel's did attempt to accommodate us with this issue by extending our cocktail hour by 15 minutes with no hesitation. They also brought our wedding party cocktails and hors d'oeuvres during pictures. That did help make things a little less rushed. Every wedding receives a "captain" for the entire day of the wedding. Our captain was Reneea (sp?). She was phenomenal! She was so attentive and there for us throughout every step of the day! I cannot thank her enough for everything she did for us! The rest of the staff were just as great! They were very accommodating and friendly! Honestly, you cannot beat the value either. The price was the most reasonable for the service that we found in the area! We would highly recommend them for a wedding or any other gathering!

The party was extremely wonderful. However, a few complaints, there was no plate for Rob and I to place our cake slice on to share it for pictures, there were no favors set at the head table, I (the bride) was ignored at the bar a couple of times, and the biggest issue I had, the band, guests, myself and Rob wanted to extend the reception, like we were told we could do. Unfortunately, the "Captain" of the room told us we had to leave, her name was Pat by the way. But for the most part, it was a great time.

Samuel's Grande Manor responded with the following comments:

Often times recollections of what actually happened during an event are fuzzy interpretations of reality. Captain Pat (nearly 30 years experience in customer service) at no time would ever tell a Bride & Groom that "they had to leave”. Couples are nearly always welcome to purchase extra bar time and it is permitted for the entertainment to play for up to 30 minutes past the closing time of the bar. On rare occasion a bar will not be permitted to extend and that decision is only made by the General Manager after reviewing with the Captain & bartenders of the event the status of the guests and the general disposition of the guests in regards to how they have handled the availability of an unlimited open bar.
The other items mentioned by jveiders84 will be reviewed in detail with Captain Pat and the bartenders on duty and we thank jveiders84 for bringing those items to our attention so they can be thoroughly investigated and properly addressed.

Overall very happy with services. Two recommendations for improvement would be 1) Have the same person consistantly work with us (we met with Mark to sign our contract and didn't see or hear from him again until the day of, it felt confusing like we just spoke with whoever answered the phone that day) and 2) Have someone from Samuel's attend the rehearsal to help work out ceremony details (we had to rearrange where we stood at the last minute because we were not aware where the mic was at. The DJ informed us about this 20 min before ceremony.) Very happy with venue, gardens were beautiful and the food was delicious. Renia our captine the night of our wedding was great!

Samuel's Grande Manor responded with the following comments:

Our apologies to Sara regarding having to work with multiple office staff while planning for her event.When possible we do try to have the continuity of the same person working with our couples from first contact to the end of the party. Schedules, of both our staff and our customers, do not always allow for that. The positive comments regarding Sara's Banquet Captain, Ranaiah, the night of the party are a testament to the depth of the talent here at Samuel's Grande Manor. All of our Primary Office staff have the necessary training and extensive experience to follow through with every detail and disseminate that information effectively in order for staff such as Captain Ranaiah to perform her responsibilities professionally and thoroughly.
Thank you Sara for the positive review and Congratulations!

We had our ceremony in the gazebo and the reception in the Josephine room in July 2011. Planning from another state, it was fantastic to e-mail Sue and say: "We need this," and get a response back immediately saying: "Done." They guided us through everything from planning, to getting ready the day before, to walking everyone through the process on the day of. Sue answered every silly question without making me feel that it was silly. I felt 100% confident about Samuel's going into our wedding day, and they came through. Our wedding captain directed family and friends, provided ice cold water (it was 90 degrees that day) before the ceremony and during pictures, and helped everyone with the flowers. Mark was there all night and Sue was there to watch me walk out to the ceremony. My family remarked on the serving staff's professionalism and helpfulness. The gazebo was gorgeous, the Josephine room was perfect... we had to use Advent Sound Systems, since their equipment is already in the Josephine room, but that was fine, because Deb was incredible - the best DJ I've heard at a wedding (and it was ours!!) She even guided us through aspects of the evening ("You'll want to finish your dinner soon and go visit tables - start with older relatives since they'll report back to your parents.") We had many, many, many compliments on the music, the food, the venue, the staff. It was an outrageously wonderful day and Samuel's did such an excellent job helping us pull it off. I would highly recommend this place to anyone looking for a beautiful, classy place to get married.

Samuel's Grande Manor did an excellent job. We can't say enough about the venue. Samuel's Grand Manor worked with us from the initial appointment to view the venue giving us ideas on how to plan the wedding and a list of preferred vendors to use. We were assigned a butler or concierge who looked after our every need the day of the wedding. The value for the price vs what you received was more than we expected. The grounds are beautiful and our guests raved about what a great time they had. We hired their in house DJ's who were right on site and made the planning process easy. We can't thank Samuel's enough for a beautiful wedding.

Everyone at Samuel's Grande Manor was incredibly helpful during both the planning stages of our wedding and our wedding day. Feedback was always prompt and questions were answered fully. Our wedding captain was amazing and the food was spectacular! The only draw-back that we encountered was the fact that there are multiple weddings each day and scheduling can be a bit difficult.

Samuel's is one of the best decisions we've made for our wedding. Sue and all the staff have been very accomodating and professional. We felt very taken care of throughout the preparation and definitely on the big day itself. Our guests still raved about the food, the atmosphere and how organized everything was days after the wedding. We especially recommend the roast pork!

Samuel's listened to everything I wanted. I had some guest complain about one of the servers. They were still eating and apparently she kept trying to take their plate. Everyone loved the food and said my wedding was VERY classy. I would recommend samuals to anyone...who's willing to pay for a nice wedding day.

The level of professionalism is outstanding. The quality of the service and the food was exceptional! My guests are reaching out to me to tell me how impressed they were. We really felt like the staff at Samuel's actually cared about each of us. They (Mark and Renee) checked with us throughout the evening to make sure we didn't need anything and were happy. I thought that was an extra special effort to ensure our satisfaction.

Our wedding was on a Sunday when another large event was going on in all the other rooms. There was some confusion with my guests finding the ceremony location because of this, but Samuel's Grande Manor refunded us the entire amount we were charged for the use of the gazebo, to compensate for this. The food was excellent and the staff was extremely helpful-especially our "captain" who was assigned to assist during the reception and ceremony. I would definately recommend using Samuel's Grande Manor!

When we called to give them a final count over ten days before the wedding, they told us they would be sending us a layout of the room so that we could finalize our seating chart. They never sent it to us, so we were unable to assign tables and print out our seating cards before we went to drop off everything else. The manager called us the following day to to discuss with us the fact that we had seemed upset, which we were at the prospect of having to make another trip out of the way the week leading up to our wedding in order to drop off the cards. He did tell us we just needed to give them a count for each table so that they could be set up in advance with the correct number of settings, but that we had up until half an hour before the reception to drop off the cards so that they could be set out.

The day of the wedding, they were very helpful with adapting as the night went along, and the food was excellent!

Samuel's Grande Manor responded with the following comments:

It is our goal to have all of our couples wedding planning and wedding day to go as smoothly as possible, offering our many decades of combined experience throughout this process. Our most sincere apology was offered to Katie regarding not receiving the seating diagram, which was e-mailed from our office when we said it would be e-mailed. Like the USPS, for a large list of valid reasons, not everything arrives where it is intended. We were not aware of the missing seating diagram until Katie came in as described in her comments. A notification from Katie earlier regarding the missing seating diagram would have prevented any inconveniences that she had experienced.

The only thing I suppose that I would reccommend is that instead of talking to multiple people at Samuels is that one person be spcifically tasked with keeping on point with questions/issues that arise. However, every question we had asked, we had timely and accurate responses. I was a little uncomfortable not knowing if messages would get through to the correct person or not. But, my concerns were voided by the tremendous service and we did have an absolutely fantastic wedding. THANK YOU!!!! Marty and Julia

Choosing Samuel's for our reception was the best decision we could have made. There is no other place where you can get the amount and quality of food for the price that we did. Our guests were so pleased and excited by the large selection of food. The entire staff from the office to the waiters were AMAZING! Everyone was very helpful, polite, responsive and you could really tell that they took pride in their work and that they enjoyed it. We also used their in-house DJ - Samuel Sound and Debbie was fantastic - she listened to what I wanted and didnt want and tailored the music to our liking. Everyone had a wonderful time and we are so thankful to the staff at Samuel's for taking care of our guests. We would recommend Samuel's to everybody

I had to complete mostly all preliminary correspondence with Samuel’s Grande through email since my fiancé and I were both deployed while planning our wedding. Sue was the most amazing aide to us. Not only did she return emails in a very quick manner, but she even provided a tour and details to a few of my family members – please keep in mind this outstanding service was given even before we signed with them. When we decided we wanted to wait to actually see the place ourselves before sending our deposit Sue completely understood and didn’t make us feel like we wasted her time; a very different response from the other venue we were considering. From the minute we visited Samuel’s and met with Sue we knew the customer service (probably the most important aspect for smooth wedding planning) was pristine!

We and our guests loved the food, loved the stress free environment (since Samuel’s essentially does everything for you) and loved the service. Our captain on the day of (included complimentary from Samuel’s) made sure everything was seamless. We had such a great time and it was so nice for the ceremony and reception to be in one location, especially since it was Jan and was freezing cold! The centerpieces and decorations were set up exactly how I wanted and everything looked as beautiful as promised.

Now because I had so many questions about the little detail I would like to help other brides by listing a few minor details I would have liked to be aware of. Such as a microphone that was placed right beside the officiant during our ceremony - something that is now in ALL of our wedding photos. Our photographer probably could have done a better job at making sure it wasn’t in the pictures, but it seems that Samuel’s could have provided a better system for that (maybe a clothing mic) if one was needed at all. Also, I would have liked to talk with the person who was running things the day of (the Captain) prior to the day of. I insistently explained to Sue that I wanted a candlelight ceremony with dim lighting, but when I entered the room as I was walking down the aisle I noticed that it was much more bright than I would have liked – something the Captain probably didn’t know. For all the A-type brides out there you might want a preview before the once in a lifetime event happens. Other than that, I completely recommend Samuel’s Grande Manor for any event!

I can tell you as a bride to be you could certainly become over whelmed by all that needs to be done before the big day. I can assure you if you choose Samuel's Grande Manor as your reception site you will be completely satisfied. I felt relieved when I met with the Banquet manager Mark as he assured me every detail will be taken care of, no truer words were spoken. I called several times and no matter who I spoke with concerning the reception they were always very professional and friendly. Our guests all raved about the filet and the chicken samuel everything was done to profection. Thank you for an evening full of wonderful memories. Sincerely,

My husband and I chose Samuel's Grand Manor for our ceremony and reception and we couldn't have been more pleased! This was the 1st and only place that we visited for our venue- the atmosphere, price and staff are too good to pass up! The price is by far probably the cheapest around- and open bar for 4 1/2 hrs- everybody loves that! The food is out of this world and there is more than you can eat! They also give you a captain to cue you when it's time to cut the cake etc and I don't know what I would have done without mine! I was too busy dancing and having fun to pay any attention to time! We have absolutely nothing bad to say- everything was perfect! Very highly recommended!

This is a good place to have your wedding reception. I like the out door patio for people to mingle and smoke if they need to. I also like the decor of the place.
The food was very good, many of my family members complimented on the filet. It was nice to have a head server assist us in our duties of cutting the cake and gathering us for our entrance. That was a nice added extra, really helped smooth things along.
My only complaint is that too soon would servers take the drinks off the tables while people just placed them down to dance. Some of my friends commented on that.

We had our reception at SGM on 10/09/10 and we couldn't have expected more from them! Everything was just amazing from start to finish. I personally dealt with Mark a lot over email and everything was answered as quickly as can be! What a super great staff to work with...I know I was probably a little difficult but then again who isn't on their wedding day?!! But the entire staff was more than willing to help out with anything possible and they did it with a genuine smile! I even stopped in multiple times during our year long engagement just to freshen my mind on the room and they were more than happy and didn't get annoyed with it! SGM deff has the very best bang for your buck! Not to mention the quality is outstanding! From the appetizers to the dinner to the ice sculpture to the hotel room they booked for us! Everything was just incredible and went off without a hitch who could ask for more! They even let us store some of our stuff there so our families didn't have to take it all home at the end of that night! I highly recommend this venue to anyone getting married! I get compliments daily on how wonderful everything was, especially the food, which is a big thing with any wedding!! Take a look at what they have to offer and compare it to everyone else...and I guarantee SGM to be your best option if you're looking for good price, great service, and excellent food!

They did a wonderful job with everything and decorated our room beautifully. We shopped every major reception venue in the Buffalo area practically and by far they had the best package for the money. You cannot go wrong having your reception here!

We had our 10/1/10 wedding at Samuel's and were very pleased. They were incredibly easy to work with and made planning the reception very easy. Everyone raved about the food (even though my plate was only so-so). They also did a wonderful job setting up the room the way I had explained it to them and it looked even better than I had imagined. We had a ton of cake leftover, which was wrapped in napkins for our guests and left by the door for them to take as they left. They were even flexible about letting us leaving our decorations there for a couple days while we traveled for the weekend. It was also great to have the extended 4.5 hour open bar and a great value overall for what we got in our package.

There were a few minor complaints that I had - but they were VERY minor. One is that my food, as mentioned, was only so-so. Somehow my salad was without dressing and my entree a little cold. No one else I spoke to had that problem - just me. I would've asked for a new plate but my captain was nowhere to be found once the serving started. Also, we were told when we booked that if guests were still hungry they could order another plate of food but the two people who asked were given a bit of a hard time about it and never did get the plate. The biggest complaint was that when our cake was put out with the pastries and coffee I thought there would be an announcement made but there wasn't. If you have your wedding there, I suggest asking the DJ to make an announcement so that the cake and pastries don't go unnoticed as ours did. Tell your captain to let the DJ know when the dessert is put out so that announcement can happen. Otherwise, it is a bit of a waste.

Overall, the reception went better than I could ever have imagined and I would not hesitate to refer a friend to Samuel's for their wedding, shower, fundraiser, or party. If you book with them, you will not be sorry.

In my opinion Samuel's is one of the most beautiful wedding sites in the area! I love how the grounds are so beautiful and is perfect alternative to a church wedding. The beautiful gardens made you not even realize they are located on Main Street. The interior is just as beatiful!The staff was so helpful from even my first inquiry of the place. Sue was extremely helpful and responsive to all our needs and questions. I wish there was a bit more instruction when it came close to the wedding. The day of the event was flawless and everyone was so helpful and right there for anything we needed. The food was delicious!!!! Everyone said they had a great time. Completely worth every penny! We couldn't have imagined our wedding anywhere else, best night of our lives! Thanks Samuel's!

Overall the experience was very pleasent. There were, however, a few areas in need of improvement. A few tables complained that they felt rushed to finish eating because the waitresses kept trying to remove their salad and dinner plates well before they were finished with them. All of the girls at the head table were complaining that it was too cold and we had a tough time getting the temperature at a comfortable level. We were told to pick a fun song for the Baked Alaska desert presentation because the staff would come out dancing when the time came to bring it out. Instead, the staff simply walked around with miserable looks on their faces during the song. There was no dancing or cheering...I didn't even see a smile on any of their faces. We were pretty disappointed becuase it was something we had been looking forward to and spent time picking a good song for. Overall, my wife and I were happy with the rest of the evening. There were just a few areas of concern that we didn't expect when paying that much money for such an event.

We were married on location at Samuels Grande Manor on Aug 28 2010. The Gazebo and gardens were beautiful, with plenty of seats for guests to seat, and even to stand in the gardens to watch the ceremony. We used "Samuels Sound" for the music for ceremony and reception, and for both they were fantastic. The reception cocktail hour, dinner, and baked Alaska presentation were all perfect. You are assigned a "Captain" who is there to assist with anything during the wedding. We had the Chicken Samuel and Roast Prime Rib, that were great. We were advised by a friend and requested to have the prime rib cooked "medium" because prime rib is often served more toward the medium rare side. This worked out great, all loved the prime rib. The vegetarian plates were also very nice. Samuel's even offers a children's plate for $16 that we got for the little ones and they loved it.

Room Choice: We were able to choose the West room because we needed a wheelchair accesible ramp that is not afforded to the Center room. We had 200 guests and they fit comfortable at various tables of 10, 8, and a couple 12 seaters that were fine. I like the west room also because of the nice docoration on the walls and patio that looks onto the garden and gazebo. It was nice to take a breather there and many a good photo.

My wife and I could not recommend higher Samuels for a wedding. What is important is that you contact them with time to plan and to definately express any concerns and questions along the way, Sue, Mark, and all the other staff their go out of thier way and you can tell that they genuinely want you to have a nice wedding! As your planning your wedding, ask them for suggestsions for all services. We found their feedback an essential part of our day being as great as it was. We are grateful for thier support through the entire process. So good luck planning your wedding and choose Samuel's, you will not be disappointed.

Everything at Samuel's Grande Manor was exceptional. I couldn't have been more pleased with the service, food and professionalism of the staff. Everyone that I came in contact with throughout the planning of my wedding was so helpful, especially being that I was an out-of-town bride. My sister had her wedding at Samuel's in 2007 and that was one of the reasons I decided to have mine there as well. I can not say enough good things about this place and the people that work there. Every detail was taken care of well in advance and planned out and organized so well...which led to a perfect wedding day. Samuel's made planning a wedding in 6 months easy!

I would absolutely recommend Samuel's Grande Manor to anyone getting married in the Buffalo, NY area. They made everything so easy, guiding me through each decision that had to be made, it's like they did the thinking for me! They were wonderful with communication and made regular contact with me, I did not have to call them for anything. The food was excellent, not like your usual banquet food. Everything went very smoothly there, from the ceremony to the reception. All of the staff was very organized and professional and really alleviated alot of the stress that many brides have to deal with.

The facility is very accommodating. They let us come in the day before to drop off the Italian cookies my grandmother prepared, favors, cakes, and other items. They gave us extra tables.

FYI-Not all rooms are handicapped accessible. They did however let us bring a temporary ramp for my grandmother who is in a wheelchair because we wanted to use the main ballroom.

We got very positive compliments from our guests on the food and on how nice the staff was. I would recommend them highly!

We got married on a Sunday and got a great deal from Samuel's because they discount a lot of things (not the buffet itself, but champagne toast, appetizers etc.) on Fridays and Sundays. Also, we didn't have the required number of guests to book the large center room, but we requested to use it if it didn't become booked for that day and since it wasn't, we got it! It was very nice. Only one thing - people thought the baked alaska was our wedding cake and our real cake ended up wrapped in napkins in the back of the room! Make sure your cake is served if possible!!

They also let us in the day before so I could decorate and threw in an ice sculpture. The service was great as was the food (people are still saying how great it was 2 yrs later!).
