Terrace on The Park was the right pick for my African theme wedding. Also, it was the only Venue that allowed outside caterers that we came across. My fiancé and I are from West Africa. He is Nigerian and I am Liberian. We decided to have an African wedding and looked around for a while and found Terrace On The Park through a family member. We had our ceremony and reception at Terrace on The Park. The wedding Ceremony was originally scheduled to take place in the chapel but I wasn't a big fan of it so the day before our wedding Ricky who has helped us out through our planning worked out a miracle and I was able to use one of the smaller rooms they have on the first floor for the same price as the chapel. Ricky is one of the managers there and we had the opportunity to work with him. He was amazing, he was always available to answer all of my questions and concerns. The receptionist was also nice and made sure my calls were returned. Our reception took place in the grand ball room. Our guest was amazed by the venue. There's lot of parking which is always a plus for your guest. Also, the outside is beautiful for photos. Ricky was great on the day of our wedding, he accommodated us in every way possible as our DJ ran late. I would recommend anyone looking for a venue with an ancient look or classy look to check out Terrace on The Park. If you are interested in a modern or hollywood kind of look for your wedding then you might not like Terrace on The Park. Again, as for us this is exactly what we were looking for. Our photos came out amazing. We really pull off the ancient look amazingly with this venue.

My wedding was totally a dream. Bruno and all of the staff members were absolutely amazing. Our family and friends were super happy with the look and feel of the venue. This venue is extremely spacious and elegant. The decoration is extremely regal and classy. Our family and friends also raved about the food and the service. Our wedding turned out beautifully and we are forever grateful to Bruno and his team. Bruno is absolutely the best as he works with you and your budget. He is truly amazing at what he does. My husband and I would truly recommend Terrace on the Park for any event.

We were incredibly impressed with Terrace on the Park and everyone who we worked with. Norm, Bruno and staff were incredibly accommodating and made the whole process leading up to the day as stress-free as possible. They all are truly professionals and love to see happy brides and grooms have a wonderful wedding day!

The day of was absolutely amazing thanks to Smiley & Constance. Everything was laid out just as I had instructed and although there were a few hiccups throughout the day (due to our other vendors) the staff at Terrace on the Park helped to iron out those hurdles as quickly and painlessly as possible.

We had a bit of rain on our wedding day which cut the outdoor pictures to a minimum but we were able to get some great shots right there inside the venue. The food was delicious and all of our guests were thoroughly impressed with the high quality of food, service and elegance. I still receive compliments on how amazing the day was (especially their Venetian hour!!)

I recommend to any couple looking for ease, great service and great food!! Thank you, Terrace on the Park!!

We booked the penthouse for our Saturday evening wedding reception. Ricky was our banquet manager and was very friendly, efficient, and professional. He answered every and any question I had during my 14-mo planning. We were provided a maître d and bridal attendant that helped get us anything we needed and ensured things stayed on track. The room was setup beautifully and exactly as we requested. If I noticed anything out of place, they quickly corrected it. The staff provided white gloved service and remained professional and courteous at all times. We had a traditional Nigerian wedding and needed outside catering and that request was honored without hiccup. The room was immaculately decorated thereby requiring very little decorating. I would highly recommend this beautiful venue. The penthouse offers breath taking views of the city skyline and historic unisphere in Flushing Meadow Park.

ask for Ricky =D ... Terrace on the Park is a beautiful venue. We fell in love and was sold the moment we saw the ballroom. In its natural form, minus the flowers and the special lighting you already get the feeling of grandeur. But it was Ricky and the services that terrace on the park offered, that brought us to the finish line. And when the time came, we had a wonderful wedding reception. To Ricky, Genesis, to TOP staff Thank you !!!

I would definitely recommend Terrace On The Park, the experience was phenomenal! I absolutely loved their services! They were very thorough, timely with all details. My Maitre D. Was very professional and very kind. She made me feel very comfortable and at ease. She was there for me every step of the way all through my reception. She guided me and assisted me with the itinerary for each part of my reception, from cutting the cake to tossing of the bouquet. They allowed us to use there outside garden as a goodbye photo with all our guests. Everything was so magical! The cake came out gorgeous! Just like we dreamed! The appetizers and the food was delectable! Especially the appetizers! They were my favorite! Wish I had more! Hahaha! The Oak room is a beautiful room, big enough for about 50 people, I was mesmerized with that room! It had a small bar, pretty wooden floor and a nice dance floor right in the middle. I would definitely recommend Terrace on The Park, and I definitely look forward to having future events there!

Last but not least, our venue ended up being at Terrace on the Park of Flushing. As I mentioned briefly, we had to switch venues. They saved our lives by hosting our wedding with only 36 hours notice, and it couldn't have been more perfect. The room was gorgeous, with incredible views over looking Citifield and New York City. The guests RAVED about the food, the wait staff was attentive and they poured a nice heavy drink which everyone appreciated!! I would recommend them every day of the week !

We originally booked one of the smaller ballrooms at Terrace, but we were upgraded to the Penthouse a few months before the wedding. As if that wasn't awesome enough, we also had a bridal attendant, Genesis, who was very professional and efficient throughout the evening. She pinned my train up, to make moving around much easier, and made sure that we got to eat before joining our guests at the Cocktail Reception. We were well-looked after the whole time, and that definitely made our wedding much more enjoyable. Will definitely recommend to friends and family.

What a dream!
we honestly could not have asked for a better venue. We worked with Ricky who was amazing! He was super flexible giving us the best value and made us feel super special. We were supposed to get married outside in the penthouse where we were having our reception but of course it started to rain buckets twenty minutes before oue ceremony is supposed to start. But Terrace on the Park made it a flawless transition. We ran twenty minutes behind as they moved us to this beautiful glass chapel that overlooks the gardens of the queens zoo.
My guests are still talking about how beautiful everything was - we were able to save a ton on flowers because the reception rooms are so stunning - and how delicious the food was. The cocktail hour was amazing, we even had a roasted pig which my family from Puerto Rico could not stop eating - they said how it reminded them of the places they go to get Roasted Pig back in PR. Dinner was even better I had the salmon and he had the steak and oh my god those mashed potatoes!
My Bridal attendant was the best gift Terrace on the Park gave me - she got me into my dress and laced in under 5 minutes, cracked jokes before I walked down the aisle so I wouldn't cry and mess up my makeup and after the ceremony she bustled me in 5 minutes and made sure my groom and I had EVERYTHING we needed she took our drink orders as soon as we got to the cocktail hour and never let them get empty. We were well taken care of all night.
This is a beautiful Hall that looks like nothing from the outside but will leave you with your jaw on the floor once you step inside. And the service will make you feel like family.

The best choice I made was having my wedding at Terrace on the Park. Our banquet manager, Frank Pacheco, was exceptional in every aspect, from helping us plan our reception to the actual night of our wedding. We were given so many options to choose from and with having a wedding of 250-300 people, it can be overwhelming when trying to please everyone. But both managers, Frank and Mark, helped us wonderfully. The night of our reception was extraordinary. We had a full cocktail hour and our family and friends informed us that the food was delicious and plentiful. With about 250 people everyone was taken care of. Once we got into our reception the food never stopped. From the beginning to the end we were waited on hand and foot. We never even had to ask for anything, it was brought to us even before we could ask. Frank Pacheco did a wonderful job in overseeing everything. And the view....what a view...breathtaking!! Once we returned from our very long honeymoon, our family and friends informed us of the great time they had. They told us that they were very pleased with the food, service and entertainment. Our wedding was last years most memorable event for us and our family and friends. I owe it to Terrace on the Park for making that happen. With spending about $100 a person at 250 attending, it was well worth the money. I would highly recommend Terrace on the Park to others.

I had my wedding at TOP and they were amazing! When booking them, I had some concerns because I read a couple of bad reviews here on yelp, weddingbee, etc. I was blunt with them, telling them exactly what I was concerned about and exactly what I read online. They reassured me stating that things have changed and that mostly people always write about the bad things. While still true, I nonetheless still had my doubts. I worked with Norman, Brian, and Ricky, all of which were very professional, friendly, and just wonderful to work with. Came the day of the wedding, everything was FANTASTIC! Because of the weather, we weren't able to have our ceremony outside. We had it in the chapel and it was still beautiful. As a bride, I didn't get to eat much during cocktail hour, but according to family and friends, it was FABULOUS! They were all stuffed by the end of cocktail hour. Did I mention it was a 500 person wedding? And they said there was still more food to go around! The venue itself is beautiful. We were in the Paradise Room and we had purple uplights which really gave it a beautiful feel. Watching the sunset from the reception hall was another experience in itself, and at night, I was told "it's as if we were floating in midair in the middle of NY." Almost forgot to mention, the bar tenders! They were not skimpy with their drinks. All our friends and young cousins of legal age had so much fun (and shots!). Service was top notch, my bridal attendant was so helpful and attentive that night. My husband worked with the Maitre'D, and he had nothing but great things to say. Our wedding cake was Napoleon and it was delicious. The Venetian dessert was AMAZING! All the kids and adults absolutely loved it. Best of all, Norman, Brian, and Ricky, all three, were there the night of to ensure things went smoothly. It's been monthss after the wedding, and we're still hearing great things from our family and friends about what a great time they had, beautiful place, and delicious food. I am beyond satisfied with TOP and HIGHLY RECOMMEND future brides to consider having their wedding here. I can't imagine having a better team to work with. Nothing went missing, there were no empty promises, and nothing went wrong. Thank you TOP. We most likely will be back to celebrate my Dad's big 60th bday party.

Everything about the place and staff is top notch. As soon as I saw the Penthouse view, I knew there was no other place like it. Upon entering the hall there is a beautiful mirrored staircase where you can take amazing photos. You take the elevator up to the top floor and you walk into the room to see a beautiful crystal chandelier above you. The high ceilings and the marble floor are spectacular, and the floor to ceiling windows with the views of the Globe right behind us was indescribable. If that wasn’t enough, the quality of the staff’s service is beyond words. Our Banquet Manager was Norman and he was a dream to have servicing us. He provided us with an impressive package that was well within our budget and throughout the process he was impeccable about making sure everything we wanted happened just as planned. He followed up with us until the day before the wedding and each time he met with us he remembered everything that we had request. My husband requested several extras to be added to the menu and they were all provided on the day of the wedding. Our cocktail hour was outside on the terrace with views of Citified, the famous Arthur Ashe tennis stadium and excellent view of NYC including the Manhattan skyline. All of our guests had a clear view in every direction to take beautiful pictures. Our guests kept telling us they had no idea this place even existed in Flushing Meadow Park. Most brides chose LI or Manhattan for a wedding. I really suggest more people come to see this venue and check it out. Lastly, we had the most unbelievable Viennese hour, ice cream bar, hot stations, chocolate fountain and our cake was beautiful! Pretty much all I told my florist to add flowers, and it came out amazing. Our guests were in awe! There was so much food..all of the children were so excited..
There are so many picture opportunities, On the well-manicured grounds there is a large gazebo, you are right in the middle of Flushing Meadow Park with the Globe within a few minutes, there is a beautiful mirrored staircase, upstairs in the Penthouse the views are incredible.
My bridal attendant was super sweet and really worked hard. Our maitre d’ even made sure that I had all my wedding items at the end of the night and even carried it all out to our car for us. We could not have asked for better service and attentiveness. Weddings can be really stressful and so much can go wrong if you don’t have the proper vendors and staff in your corner. We can say, without a doubt in our minds, you cannot go wrong if you choose Terrace on the Park for your event. Our wedding was absolutely perfect thanks to the amazing staff at Terrace on the Park!...
I would rate the staff and well as the catering hall excellent. They really went out of their way to make our day special.

Everything about the place and staff is top notch. As soon as I saw the Penthouse view, I knew there was no other place like it. Upon entering the hall there is a beautiful mirrored staircase where you can take amazing photos. You take the elevator up to the top floor and you walk into the room to see a beautiful crystal chandelier above you. The high ceilings and the marble floor are spectacular, and the floor to ceiling windows with the views of the Globe right behind us was indescribable. If that wasn’t enough, the quality of the staff’s service is beyond words. Our Banquet Manager was Norman and he was a dream to have servicing us. He provided us with an impressive package that was well within our budget and throughout the process he was impeccable about making sure everything we wanted happened just as planned.

Terrace on the Park was a beautiful venue. I knew that it was perfect the minute I stepped inside the penthouse. The ballroom and views were breathtaking. My wedding was everything that I imagined it would be, and more. The food was delicious, the ballroom was gorgeous, the servers were friendly and helpful. My attendant Genesis, was phenomenal, always by my side to do anything from change my shoes to get me a drink. My guests danced all night and even danced as they ate the amazing desserts at the Viennese table. The cake was gorgeous and tasty, and I felt like the queen of the ball at my dais. Norman helped plan everything and promised that everything would be wonderful. Ricky, the Maitre-D made sure it was wonderful. It was wonderful and amazing and perfect. My only problem was that they seemed very overbooked. My florist and DJ were rushed in the set up process. My florist was given very little time and could not complete my picture of what I had envisioned in my ceremony. There was also confusion about where my cocktail hour would be, and the wrong room was decorated. The cocktail hour only had 2 bartenders and really needed at least 3, since I had close to 200 people. There was a huge line, but people ordered 2 or 3 at a time to make up for it.

We had our wedding at Terrace on the park on July 8, 2011, for approximately 100 people, and it was all that we could hope for. It took us over a month to find the right venue but Terrace was our top choice. It had beautiful grounds, with spectacular rooms, and what seemed to be a friendly staff at first. Though we dealt with different account managers the one constant face was Normans which was a comforting factor during a stressful time. Everything that was promised to us upon signing the contract was delivered to the best of anyone’s ability. Our Matre’d and bridal attendant (Pedro and Alyssa) were wonderful. They were pretty much the last minute wedding planners that we needed and were so helpful and friendly. In addition my guest raved about the food the venue had catered.
In the end Terrace on the park gave us the wedding that exceeded our hopes and dreams but kept within our budget. We would do it all over again and wouldn’t change a thing about this venue! Thank you Terrace on the park.

Terrace on the Park was a great location to have my wedding. They were very acommodating. My uncle who is 83 needed a special dinner and it was not an issue. Half an hour before the wedding I changed my mind about having the ceremony outside. Instead I wanted it done in the chapel becasue it was so hot. They move everything without my guest being very aware of what was going on.

I know that the reviews for Terrace are very bipolar, some love it and others do not. I will start my review by stating that I only worked with a gentleman named Ricky, and his associates. He only put you in hands of the people he trusted.

Ricky, is wonderful. We booked the penthouse suite on the top floor for the 1st of September this year. He helped make the entire process smooth and was accommodating to all the food allergies among my groom and our guest. I do not know why it says no onsite catering when that is all they have. All of the guests loved the food.

Pricing was competitive for what we wanted and what we ended up paying was under our budget, and much lower than the guests had estimated from the look of grandeur from the room and service.

Ricky gave us a list of vendors that the venue works with - we chose a florist and dj that they know well and their working relationship showed it. I did not choose one of their photographers, and choose an outside vendor (White Pear Photography - she's amazing and I highly recommend) and he worked with her.

We got married during the US Open. Literally. White is right across from the venue. And Ricky helped make it so we didn't even notice it. The only thing he wasn't able to provide was a car permit for the park to drive up to the Unisphere fountain for photos so we walked. And the only reason it wasn't available was because of the US Open the NYPD wouldn't grant it.

The venue is gorgeous and the penthouse gives you plenty of room to have the ceremony outside on the terrace, weather permitting, and cocktail hour limiting the confined and claustrophobic feeling.

I highly suggest the venue, under the condition that you work with Ricky. Once you book your wedding with him - he stays with you the whole process and only lets his best associates work with you.

I booked Terrace on the Park because it was an absolutely beautiful venue and they had options that fit within my budget. I was a bit nervous about my choice because of all the mixed reviews. It was difficult at times to reach someone to talk to especially since I live in another state and couldn't simply stop by to talk to someone in person. However on the day of my wedding Terrace on the Park went above and beyond. I got everything in my contract and in abundance. The food was top of the line. My cake was so yummy.l I sad I didn't eat more at the wedding. My guests cannot stop talking about the food and the decor. The staff at Terrace on the Park were very cordial and accommodating. My bridal attendants were pleasant and so professional.

Thank you Terrace on the Park for a wonderful wedding. Wishing you many years of continued success.

I also asked for a cake cutter, and was told it would be provided to me, and when it was time to cut the cake we were given a butter knife. HOWEVER those were the only issues. Everything else was wonderful. BEAUTIFUL atmosphere. Gorgeous view.

Earlier this year (2010) when we visited Terrace on the Park for the first time, we knew it was the place where we wanted to get married.. and we did. We picked the location for various reasons. First, our banquet manager was very personable and pleasant. He walked us through the entire process of planning a wedding and gave us advices and ideas in addition to making sure that our event was planned the way we wanted it to be. The food was great and plenty. The veiw from the penthouse level was amazing. We were blessed to have had a beautiful weather on our wedding day in June, 2010, and all our guests got a chance to see the manhattan skyline as the backdrop of our event. On Queens side, we also enjoyed the view of Cififield, the famous Arthur Ashe tennis stadium, and the Unisphere of Flushing Meadow park. The ballroom was nothing but extravagant and elegant with beautiful chandelier in the center of the dance floor. Our sweetheart table setup was beautiful with a view of outdoor scenary.

We loved our wedding at Terrace on the Park. All the staff did a wonderful job and we were very pleased with their services. The only one thing that we regret is that we used the florist that was recommended to us by Terrace on the Park. While Terrace on the Park did not have anything to do with our decision to use the florist (Charles Florals of Astoria, NY), we wished we did a better research of the products and services that Charles Florals offered. The florist at Charles Florals did make a beautiful sample of our centerpieces and made wonderful promises, but, on the day of our wedding, the actual centerpieces and other flower decorations were not done as per the contract and per the promises. The bridesmaids bouquets did not look fresh by the afternoon.

This is the one day that you will remember for the rest of your lives together. While Terrace on the Park did a beautiful job for our wedding, Charles Florals did not live up to our expectation and the contract. We do recommend Terrace on the Park, but please, for your sake, be careful if you ever even consider to use Charles Florals.

Not an everyday wedding catering hall, they're much more than that and exactly the reason why they are not flexible as others. You pay for the wow factor when your guests go up and for the open bar - the bar was nothing short of spectacular. Just get seasoned vendors with them and everything will be great and wonderful.

I just got married here last week. The actual event was really great. It was more than we hope for. I would have given it all 5 stars if it werent for the sales person assigned to us. If you are thinking about having your event here, do NOT under any circumstances use a man named Norman.

Norman is a scumbag first rate. He will tell you any lie you need to hear in order to sign anything he puts in front of you. Since Norman is older, he has no computer, and always hand writes everything which gives him an excuse every time you see him for him to tell you that you havent paid him.

During the entire process he told us that 3 things would be done, like painting the terrace which was sort of disgusting, and cleaning lights etc. None of it was done, but he knew we wouldnt care. Norman's little trick is to tell you that "you are going to get something special because I like you." What you dont know is that since you cant actually read the details of the plans, he only tells you 80% of what you are paying for and then on the day you are "suprised" with this generous gift...which isnt a gift at all. He admitted this to me.

The worst part of Norman is that once you have paid him, you will never get any service from him again. We made the mistake of paying him 2 weeks before the wedding in full and we never got to see or talk to him again.

During the wedding, we had 2 attendants. One woman and one man, the woman was very nice, but it was obvious that I was sharing an attendant with another party, but I paid 100% of the cost for him. He was no where to be found after the 1st 2 hours.

The place is beautiful, and the food was good wedding food. The bartender Lloyd was absolutely the best.

The biggest problems came when I had to ask Norman for the remainder of our wedding cake. My wife and her mother-in-law asked the male attendant to save the remainder of the cake and just put it in the back of any car. Now this was a $2000 cake and there was plenty of it left. After trying to get a hold of Norman, he told me that it was the attendant who asked my wife and mother-in-law if we wanted the cake and they said to "throw it away". When I told him I was standing right there, he told me that I could come in and question them myself and that I, my wife and mother-in-law were lying.

Cake is cake...We wanted to keep a small part of it and then donate it to the church so their shelters could enjoy our happiness..ok...but how about this:

In that conversation, Norman tried to tell me that we owed him for 2 more people. That we had underpaid and it was his good graces that he allowed the wedding to go forward because he was a nice guy. In fact we OVERPAID by 8 people and I had to argue with him until he blamed it on the "money guys". I asked him how I recover the extra I had paid, and he said I couldnt. I tried to make logic of this, but it IS on the back of the contract you will sign. When you turn in the place settings, you had better be sure that you have either exact or under count the amount of people.

...and to boot, one of the "Staff" put the main centerpiece in the coat closet because, she admitted to the family memeber in control of picking it up, that she "wanted to take it home, because it was beautiful."

Go in with your eyes open. I am trying not to let this ruin what was a beautiful event...ruined by an unscrupulous sales guy 1/4 of the time I paid for of an attendant and a few sticky fingers staff.

While I encourage anyone with the stamina to do this, Sorry Norman, but I was the test of my group of 6 couples within the next year to be married, and I will tell them not to use you in hopes that you are forced to retire for tainting my wedding.

I just got married here last week. The actual event was really great. It was more than we hope for. I would have given it all 5 stars if it werent for the sales person assigned to us. If you are thinking about having your event here, do NOT under any circumstances use a man named Norman.

Norman is a scumbag first rate. He will tell you any lie you need to hear in order to sign anything he puts in front of you. Since Norman is older, he has no computer, and always hand writes everything which gives him an excuse every time you see him for him to tell you that you havent paid him.

During the entire process he told us that 3 things would be done, like painting the terrace which was sort of disgusting, and cleaning lights etc. None of it was done, but he knew we wouldnt care. Norman's little trick is to tell you that "you are going to get something special because I like you." What you dont know is that since you cant actually read the details of the plans, he only tells you 80% of what you are paying for and then on the day you are "suprised" with this generous gift...which isnt a gift at all. He admitted this to me.

The worst part of Norman is that once you have paid him, you will never get any service from him again. We made the mistake of paying him 2 weeks before the wedding in full and we never got to see or talk to him again.

During the wedding, we had 2 attendants. One woman and one man, the woman was very nice, but it was obvious that I was sharing an attendant with another party, but I paid 100% of the cost for him. He was no where to be found after the 1st 2 hours.

The place is beautiful, and the food was good wedding food. The bartender Lloyd was absolutely the best.

The biggest problems came when I had to ask Norman for the remainder of our wedding cake. My wife and her mother-in-law asked the male attendant to save the remainder of the cake and just put it in the back of any car. Now this was a $2000 cake and there was plenty of it left. After trying to get a hold of Norman, he told me that it was the attendant who asked my wife and mother-in-law if we wanted the cake and they said to "throw it away". When I told him I was standing right there, he told me that I could come in and question them myself and that I, my wife and mother-in-law were lying.

What you should know is that all the money you pay for "banquet captain" "Maitre d" and "service staff" goes directly in the general manager's pocket and is split among only a handful of managers! The poor kids who work thier tail off to make your event memorable night do not get a dime of your tip! so if you want to tip, put it directly in thier hand or they get nothing. If you dont believe me just ask the staff!

I got married just over a week ago at Terrace on the Park. Our wedding was absolutely beautiful, but this was in SPITE of the venue.

Since booking at Terrace on the Park over a year ago, I've worked with four catering managers. The one in charge is blind; the rest all string you along so that you think you're "covered."

My husband and I planned every detail of the wedding to make sure our guests, family, and ourselves would feel comfortable and happy. Though we all danced and had an incredible time, I cannot explain how disappointed, angry, and hurt I am by what Terrace on the Park did not do that they promised.

We had a three page list of things to do and how to do them. We also had a list taped on the outside of each box we gave Terrace on the Park with directions.

Though I asked time and again to talk personally with our day-of coordinator, I was told that I shouldn't worry about those things and it would all be covered.Apparently, the Matr' D was never given any of this information. What did that mean?

That meant my bridesmaids set up our seating cards fifteen minutes before people arrived. That meant that my crippled mother-in-law did not have a chair for her during the ceremony to sit in. That meant that there was no table for our ceremony until our rabbi got there to literally carry one over, put down our wine, tallis, ketubah, etc. That meant that the sign in books we had made specially for each table were put on top of candles and burned before the reception began. That meant our musicians did not have chairs. That meant the surprise anniversary cake we'd gotten for my parents was put out with our wedding cake. That meant the bags we had made for children were lost. That meant our ceremony programs weren't on the chairs of the ceremony. That meant there weren't enough chairs during the ceremony. That meant we were never directed when to walk during the ceremony and our entire wedding party walked at almost the same time. That meant that on a 95 degree day, we were not offered the option to use a different room at all.

All of this also meant that, instead of doing anything during our wedding to help us get all of this done, the Matre'D, James, was missing and showed up to ask me questions and demand more money. During cocktail hour, there were not enough chairs, and the Matre'D told me if I didn't want people in the reception room, I'd have to get them out of there myself.

I am absolutely still floating on Cloud Nine, in love with my husband, proud of my bridal party for pulling this off, and happy with what came. But, I do hope that anyone looking into using Terrace on the Park seriously considers their decision.

I had my Reception there on 9/25/2010. I saw another bride wrote her review of her reception on the day after mine...funny how our experiences differ.
Initially when I decided to use Terrace, I met with James, who was very pleasant and wonderful. Most importantly we were on the same page, however and a few months in I had to continuously call in order to make arrangements for my tasting. Each time asking for James, eventually I was told James was involved in a bad car accident and that someone else by the of Bruno will be taking over. Okay I met him, he seemed okay..he wasn't James. But he was quite the talker oh boy..I should have known from then. I had a party of 400 guest. They told us that they would not be having another party in they next room that night because it would be chaos. Granted it wasn't, however, during my party as we were doing our speeches, we kept thinking that my guests in the back were being rude because they couldn't keep quiet turns out it was not our guests but the noise and chattering was coming from the other wedding NEXT DOOR. Next, I was told I would have TWO attendants with us in the bridal suite, we had one girl (poor thing) she tried but there were about 16 of us and just her. There was another guy who was around a lot, however, I do not remember his name. Somehow he had become suddenly in charge of my night, instead of Bruno. Whom by the way I never saw. My guest couldn't find their names from the seating chart, our dinner was almost two hours late, which I then demanded to talk to Bruno but he was no where to be found so then they sent me Mark (Blind guy) to speak to me about it and he offered us an extra half hour on our night. At this point it is already 11 pm. Finally our dinner arrived and most of it was cold, yes COLD. The waiters were disrespectful even to my mother and I wish I knew that then. They put out cups for coffee but never served it. The one good thing about the evening was that our guest enjoyed cocktail hour for the tasty food and I'm almost certain had dinner been on time and not cold they would have felt the same. I was highly disappointed by they difference of service that we received before and after our last payment was made. Its your wedding and you expect to get exactly or even close to what you pay for..Especially when its not a $25/plate venue. I don't know that I can say for certain that its just the way that Terrace on the Park is, or if its just certain employees there but I definitely would not recommend it. After my wedding, I tried to get in contact with Bruno..but, of course, he was always busy and put someone else to handle my call as he did with me the night of my wedding.
I am happy, of course, that our guests were understanding and tried to make the best of the night despite the shortcomings of Terrace on the Park.

We had our wedding on December 27, 2008. Upon coming back from our honeymoon and talking to family members, we learned that despite the great time that was had by almost all of our guests, we probably had the least amount of food at our wedding than any we have attended (at least 7 in the past 3 years) – How mortifying!

Mark, one of the banquet managers explained to us that we would “get it all" but what we left understanding and what we actually got was two different things, especially at cocktail hour. We thought, as with most halls, you get some stand alone tables with varieties of food along with butler service. Instead, we had butler service which was disappointing, but would have been okay if they had more than two servers for over 180 people. We found out after our honeymoon (since we left the next day after the wedding) that many people were starving and that is why our attendants promptly ushered us upstairs a little before 8pm to begin our entrance. There were not enough servers (only two our guest can attest to) and therefore, the food only went to a select group closest to the kitchen door. As the bride and groom, you have no idea what is going on upstairs, especially because they are taking care of you (of course) but they did such a poor job at taking care of our guests and being accommodating throughout the evening. It is not your guests' job to complain about staff that has ignored them, were rude, or for there not being enough food. Even during dinner, there was only a salad, the meal (no appetizer) and a piece of cake. Afterwards, when we spoke to the manager, he said someone should have told him the guests were hungry. The manager was present and a Maitre' De to ensure things went right, it was their job to gauge the situation, this shouldn't have happened.

My husband and I are big on food and I always look forward to a cocktail hour (that’s usually the best part). We never asked Mark to skimp on food or tried to get the price down by cutting out extras. We are both educated and should have realized that the contract was somewhat ambiguous; unfortunately our previous wedding experiences and the charisma of the manager had us too trusting and comfortable in their capability. For us to walk away thinking we are getting one thing and get only butler served hors d' oeuvres is mind boggling. At $122 per plate, talking to him, and going to weddings that were much cheaper, we feel we have been taken for a ride.
RECAP
1) No stations during cocktail hour (or the basics you will receive at any other LI hall -see, Floral Terrace, Jericho Terrace, etc.).
2) Don't go by what Terrace’s website says! You would assume you get many of the things listed there because they should say optional, but it doesn’t.
3) Non-attentive staff (would not maneuver around tables that were too cramped – for instance, plopping down two rolls and not placing the rest on other side of table – brought out bottle of salad dressing and squirted a salad that was called dry by a guest).
4) Not accommodating any take home requests (my dad with kidney trouble asked to take his meal and was denied – you pay for it, why not?)
5) No water at tables. Hard to get wait staff to bring them.

We ended up having a great wedding regardless mostly due to our FANTASTIC DJ Elegancia (it was one great party) but we are embarrassed in knowing how our guest were treated that evening.
The views at Terrace on the Park are not worth poor service and the high price. Any questions, you can email me at TSmith9044@yahoo.com.

The best of these place is the staff and Mather Ds. Alvin was my maitre D, he was amazing and very helpful. Thanks to this person I had a good time, however managers do not know how to their job.

When I first saw Terrace on the Park, I was really excited. The Banquet managers were great- Bruno, Brian, and Marc. They told me that they would take care of whatever it was I needed. I would have 2 Banquet managers, a Bridal Attendant, and at least a number of other members of my bridal team to make sure my reception would be a success.

Had I known that they would not be as attentive as promised or that many things would have gotten messed up, I would have either chosen another location or made sure that I had a wedding coordinator.

Let me tell you what they did:
1) I had two cakes- my wedding cake and the groom's cake
They did not refrigerate my wedding cake and by the time my reception started, it was lopsided.
They accepted and signed for my groom's cake, but there was no sign of it at the party. They claim they didn't have it!!!!!

2) They were told to please take care of specific things and of course by the time the reception started- they were not taken care of. And when I needed the tasks to be done, my "bridal team" was either not around or not paying attention to me or my husband. In the middle of the reception during my lopsided cake-cutting!

3) They threw out half of my decorations before the night was completely over requiring me to pay my sash vendor extra money for the lost sashes. When Terrace on the Park was asked about the sashes, they had no clue where they were or what I was talking about.

4) They threw out the top layer of my cake.

5) My guests cameras were stolen. One guest caught one of the waiter/busboy in the act and was able to get it back.

My husband and I look back and realize that we made a big mistake. We gave the tip to one of the banquet managers ahead of time and we feel that because they had that money, why should they have gone out of their way to care.

I will never ever recommend this place to anyone again!

The worst service and professionalism ever, the staff is extremely rude and unhelpful just like the manager and the head staff.

They wish to do nothing but stand there and watch as you struggle to have arrangements done on time. Even after booking certain halls they double booked one of the halls for another party even though we paid full money and we booked a year in advance. They have the most disgusting mannerisms from the head staff Norman himself. Norman is absolutely the nastiest and rude person you will ever meet, with no reason at all for him to be that way. I would strongly urge anyone who wishes to have a party there to reconsider just for the reason that you will not at all appreciate the belligerent attitude and unhelpful and disgusting staff that we had to endure. Please take my advice wisely as I wish to save others the disappointment I had gone through for my wedding.

"I just got married here last week. The actual event was really great. It was more than we hope for. I would have given it all 5 stars if it werent for the sales person assigned to us. If you are thinking about having your event here, do NOT under any circumstances use a man named Norman.

Norman is a scumbag first rate. He will tell you any lie you need to hear in order to sign anything he puts in front of you. Since Norman is older, he has no computer, and always hand writes everything which gives him an excuse every time you see him for him to tell you that you havent paid him.

During the entire process he told us that 3 things would be done, like painting the terrace which was sort of disgusting, and cleaning lights etc. None of it was done, but he knew we wouldnt care. Norman's little trick is to tell you that "you are going to get something special because I like you." What you dont know is that since you cant actually read the details of the plans, he only tells you 80% of what you are paying for and then on the day you are "suprised" with this generous gift...which isnt a gift at all. He admitted this to me.

The worst part of Norman is that once you have paid him, you will never get any service from him again. We made the mistake of paying him 2 weeks before the wedding in full and we never got to see or talk to him again."

I absolutely agree with this review above and would like to also add that they guzzle money like no other.

"I just got married here last week. The actual event was really great. It was more than we hope for. I would have given it all 5 stars if it werent for the sales person assigned to us. If you are thinking about having your event here, do NOT under any circumstances use a man named Norman.

Norman is a scumbag first rate. He will tell you any lie you need to hear in order to sign anything he puts in front of you. Since Norman is older, he has no computer, and always hand writes everything which gives him an excuse every time you see him for him to tell you that you havent paid him.

During the entire process he told us that 3 things would be done, like painting the terrace which was sort of disgusting, and cleaning lights etc. None of it was done, but he knew we wouldnt care. Norman's little trick is to tell you that "you are going to get something special because I like you." What you dont know is that since you cant actually read the details of the plans, he only tells you 80% of what you are paying for and then on the day you are "suprised" with this generous gift...which isnt a gift at all. He admitted this to me.

The worst part of Norman is that once you have paid him, you will never get any service from him again. We made the mistake of paying him 2 weeks before the wedding in full and we never got to see or talk to him again."

I absolutely agree with this review above and would like to also add that they guzzle money like no other. Read less

WORSE SERVICE! HORRIBLE MANAGEMENT!
Don't make the same mistake as we did.

My Wedding took place on June 9th 2013 in the main ballroom. I booked the main ballroom for 340 Guest. The seating chart Norman provided us with had table numbers missing & duplicated. We had numerous tables with only couple of people seating leaving a lot of empty seats. According to their staff, one of the tables was missing. There were 2 tables added on upper area and I am not sure why. According to our guest count we had approximately 325 guests attended that night.
My family was approached by Norman, (the scumbag) demanding that they pay 5k+ for the extra guests. He was extremely rude and his behavior towards the situation is unacceptable. He caused emotional distress and threatened to shut down the party if his demand wasn’t fulfilled. This left them no choice but to pay and continue with the event.
Our venue was booked until 12AM. They turned of the AC around 11AM, and started cleaning out and kicking people out.
This is not all,
Norman (the scumbag banquet manager) behaved even worse with the catering company that I hired. He spoke down with the “catering manager” and behaved in a very unprofessional manner. I had set a time with Norman and the catering manager so we can go over the details to avoid confusion. On the day of our appointment, Norman refuses to show the kitchen and tells us to come different day. We had to make another trip to deal with that!
As you can see, I have reached a very high level of frustration with this matter. I wasn’t made aware of this until last week since my sister-in-law didn’t want to spoil our memorable wedding day!
I have complained to BBB and I will contact my attorney to deal with.

Don't make the same mistake as I did!. STAY AWAY.
