My husband and I started planning our wedding in 2012 with them. From start to finish there weren't any problems with scheduling any appointments or getting an email back right away. The food there is excellent as well as the service. Our Maitre D made sure the night ran smoothly which it did. All of our guests continue to rave about the place.

The berkeley plaza was the best venue from beginning to end it was literally a waste of time looking at any other vendors after finding the berkeley plaza and meeting maitre D Diane. The food at the berkeley plaza is one of the main reason we selected this venue, but not only was the food great the staff were amazing very flexible. I wanted an outside ceremony plus there was another wedding at the location the same day and I don't know how they did it but my wedding and the other wedding did not conflict at all that's how great they were. But most of all Diane made everything work I did not worry about any little details not even wedding favors I just gave them to Diane and she placed everything on the tables for my guest, I loved the berkeley plaza my wedding was amazing. I would totallyrerecommend the berkeley plaza to my friends and family and anyone else planning an event.

MY WIFE AND I WERE EXTREMELY SATISFIED WITH THE LEVEL OF FLEXIBILITY IN MEETINGS, PRODUCTS OFFERED, THEIR PROFESSIONALISM, ENTHUSIASM IN OUR EVENT, AND OVERALL POSITIVE EXPERIENCE WE HAD WITH THEM. THE TRIO OF MIKE, ANA AND DIANE HELPED US IN EACH STEP OF OUR PROCESS, AND ALWAYS ANSWERED ANY QUESTIONS WE HAD PROMPTLY. NOTHING WAS HIDDEN, NO HIDDEN PRICES, OR EXTRA FEES, AND IT WAS BEAUTIFUL AND THE FOOD WAS GREAT, ALONG WITH A GREAT DANCEFLOOR WHICH IS OF UTMOST IMPORTANCE! AFTER VISITING 13 VENUES, WE CAME BACK TO THE PLAZA, WHICH WAS OUR FIRST. WE WILL SURELY RECOMMEND IT TO ANYONE SEEKING A VENUE FOR ANY EVENT.

We hosted my wife's 60th birthday party at the Berkeley Plaza. The Berkeley Plaza provided exceptional planning staff and were very attentive to our needs and our requests, it did not matter who we spoke to on the phone because they kept great notes and the next time we called they pulled up the notes. Anna planned our son and his wife's wedding in October 2013 and she was the main person that helped with our birthday party. The entire staff was excellent. The table setup and decorations and the room was very elegant. The quality of the food was extraordinary. The wait staff was very attentive and very humble, they constantly came to ask me when we were ready to do the next thing, they would constantly go around and make sure everyone was satisfied. When the evening was done, we knew our money was well spent and our guests raved at how well everything was done. Will definitely recommend this venue to all of my friends and if we have another big event, we will go back.

We are so happy we chose the Berkeley Plaza for our wedding! The staff was amazing and completely accommodating to all of our needs and desires. Everything on their menu is fabulous. They had everything you could imagine for the cocktail hour as well as a delicious chateaubriand as a main course option that you could cut with a fork!
We were both extremely impressed with the main ballroom’s décor. We fell in love with the drapery along the ceilings accompanied with the elegant lighting that gave it the perfect touch. It was really important to us that the room was not only beautiful but that the quality of food was to a high standard as well. The Berkeley Plaza exceeded our expectations in every way!

My husband and I booked The Berkeley Plaza for our 9/1/13 Wedding. It was the best decision we could have made for our big day!

From start to finish they exceeded all expectations. My husband and I knew exactly what we wanted and they made sure every detail was carried out. Michael was our Maitre D and was great! Definitely request him. He made sure that everything was PERFECT. He guided us through the whole night and made sure we had everything we would possibly need. The entire staff was so helpful and very professional as well, especially the owner, Jimmy. You know that a place is exceptional when the owner personally cares about your big day.

Two things I would highly recommend would be 1. Make sure you book exclusive so you have the venue to yourself, which is GREAT. We had he cocktail hour in the upstairs ballroom and the reception in the downstairs ballroom. 2. Make sure Carlos is there to be one of your bartenders. All of my guests complimented us on how great the service was, but Carlos was the hit of the night with our guests. Extremely fun, friendly and interactive!

Our guests are also still talking about what a great time they had as well as how delicious and endless the food was. So many choices and the wedding package had everything, including primo liquor and shots, which EVERY wedding needs. They were also very accommodating for our large bridal party.

Bottom line, The Berkeley Plaza is THE venue to book. It helped carry out our NJ/NY Italian style wedding perfectly and would recommend booking here to any prospective bride & groom. My husband and I had a fairytale night and wish we could relive it again and again!

My husband and I got married on February 9, 2013. Our 170 guest reception was held at The Berkeley Plaza and we were extremely happy with the turn out. Our family and friends also had a fabulous time! The huge dance floor was filled the entire night.

We chose the Berkeley Suite for our cocktail hour then moved into the Plaza Ballroom for the main event. From the first time we looked at the venue and met with Ana, to our food tasting with Michael and our meeting with the Maitre D - Diane, we were amazed with the level of professionalism they all displayed. In addition, Bob was a huge help during set up. Everyone was patient, friendly and very helpful. We would highly recommend this venue to anyone planning a wedding or other functions. We were truly satisfied with the beautiful place, accommodating staff members and awesome food. To The Berkeley Plaza, Thank you for everything and for being a pleasure to work with!

We had our reception at the Berkeley Plaza and they did an amazing job! After looking at many places in the area it came down to cost, value, and the people we dealt with. You won't find a better value for your money in the area (the cost is very reasonable). And the people at BP are professional, responsive, and friendly. Diane was our maitre d and she was awesome, as was the whole staff! Anything we needed or asked for we got. The bartenders were also excellent, even weeks after the wedding people are still talking about the bartenders. Everyone had a great time: the food was plentiful and delicious and the service was great!

This place was a great find!! I can't say enough nice things about the Berkeley Plaza!!! After visiting a "wedding factory" in the same price range, I thought I'd never find a place. Then we found the Berkeley Plaza. The first time we went, we were impressed by the level of attention to detail and accommodating nature of the staff. We booked it and had our wedding there in March. It was perfect! The food was great, the ballroom looked really nice, and everything we wanted was done. They have their own uplighting and centerpieces if you want to use them and a cute gazebo and staircase for photos. The bakery they work with (Bovellas in Westfield, NJ) was really outstanding and the florist they recommended worked with us to do something beautiful even though it was last minute. Everyone we encountered throughout the whole process was outstanding. Mike was our Maitre'd and he was awesome. I didn't have to worry about a thing. Diane and Ana in the office and Jimmy the owner were all a pleasure to work with. Ladies, go check it out and if you're date is open, book it. You won't regret it.

The Berkeley Plaza was AMAZING on my wedding day. There was even another wedding going on at the same time in a back room and you wouldn't have known it! Michael checked in with me constantly throughout the night to make sure everything was good. The food was amazing. The Venetian table was spectacular. The wait staff was perfect. The room was set up beautifully... I can't say enough wonderful things!

A huge thank you to the Berkeley Plaza!!! The Berkeley Plaza was absolutely wonderful. The staff were all great and really responsive to every guest. From the moment I arrived, the staff were great. The food was delicious and there was such a great selection for us to chose from. All my guests commented on how wonderful the food was and how great the staff were. Diane Wolfe worked with us regarding the menu choices since my husband has a gluten allergy. She got the chef involved, made sure his food was gluten free and made the cake cutting so stress free for us. She was absolutely fabulous! The Berkeley Plaza is a very beautiful venue. The decor is well balanced (not too much, not to little, just right). We took our pictures at the Berkeley Plaza and they all came out looking great!

We were very,very happy with the Berkeley Plaza. We worked with Ana, who was always very responsive to any question I asked. My Maitre ‘D – Diane was fabulous. She was very organized, relaxed and always made me feel at ease. The food was very good and there was more than enough of it. The servers were very professional and friendly. We were upstairs in the Crystal Ball Room and had a spectacular evening. Overall, I was very pleased with my experience with the Berkeley Plaza. We thought the overall value of the venue was excellent. We splurged for the Venetian dessert special and it was over the top – just fantastic. People are still talking about how great it was.

I was extremely happy with the way my wedding was at the Berkeley Plaza. Originally I thought they were a little pricy but I knew they had an incredible reputation (keep in mind I had a low budget for this area of Jersey- $60-80 per person for a full reception with open bar). Well they came in just above but included far more than I thought. Their food was like eating at a restaurant, not a banquet hall. The maitre'd, Michael, was very responsive and helpful. I would say this is an excellent value for the money, and I would highly recommend them. If you have any questions, message me!

The Berkeley Plaza was the BEST!!!!! I am so happy and pleased to have chosen this venue. The staff was AMAZING. We were helped by Ana and our matre'd was Diane. Diane was the most amazing person, just the way she treated us was great. We had the entire venue to our self which made it even more intimate. My guest were amazed by the beautiful place. The food was great my cake was gorgous and I couldnt have asked for anything better. They made us feel like a queen and king. I couldnt thank them enough for everything they did for us. There is nothing that I would have done different. I am soo happy that we chose the Berkeley Plaza to celebrate the best day of our lives <3 This place was so amazing it unexplainable. Once again thank you Berkeley Plaza and the entire team. An extremely special thanks to Diane!!! We love you!!!

Believe it or not but the 2 main reasons we chose this place were the large dancefloor and the ease the staff. From start to finish the entire staff was AMAZING. On top of that the food was fantastic, the bars are built into the room, and they serve shots which for us was a family tradition bonus.

The Berekeley Plaza provided nothing but superior service that exceeded my expectation. The big dance floor accommodated all our guests. The spiral stairs provided a great backdrop for our pictures.

I had my Reception at The Berkeley Plaza in November of 2008. Not only were they one of the most affordable places around, but the spread of items that are included in that cost were FAR beyond what any other vendor could/would offer us.

The Berkeley Plaza is BEAUTIFUL! The food was amazing! Service was fantastic. I didn't have to worry about a thing... which as a bride is priceless in and of itself.

To this day we still have friends and family talking about how wonderful it was. That's saying something!

Plaza Ballroom is roomy and the layout is perfect as everyone has a view of the bride and groom and the dance floor.
Overall a great value for the money.

The people at The Berkeley Plaza really did an excellent job. They were so helpful helping me coordinate table linens and the menu. Variety is very important to me so when they gave my guests the option to select from 3 different entrees at the table I was pleased. They also offer seconds of your entree so the amount of food was amazing. Not to mention the cocktail hour was like no other I ever seen!

I was happy to get the larger of the two rooms and just so happened to be the only event for my day which worked out in my favor. All attention was paid to our wedding and it really showed.

They even helped assist me in booking an extra vodka louge for an iced martini bar that I wanted at the event and stocked the bar with all of our favorite requests with no problems.

As a bride and groom you are running around so much that you really dont get to eat so much. The wedding coordinator understood that and even had the waitress bring us another hotter dish since the original one got cold cause we couldnt get to it right away. They even packed us dinner for two so we could enjoy it the next day and some guests that had to leave early they packed thier dinner for them to go as well!

Amazing venue...would totally recommend it.

We first contacted the Berkeley Plaza February of 2013 when we were first informed of a possible deployment. We worked with Bob who immediately took interest in us as he was a veteran too. From every step of the way, with all of the changes from the military, they worked with us always checking in if/when a date needed to change. Conveniently for us, the last minute date we wanted was still available. We were given a military discount as well. The food offered for cocktail hour was immense with lots of choices. I do wish however, that they asked us what foods in particular we would have liked to have in the bridal suite as there were limited options for the bridal party. I did not like that they set the DJ table up on the stage behind the curtain, as I instructed that they should do their set up on the stage and have their table below. They were accommodating for a few last minute/unexpected seat/table changes that we had. Our personal server was very helpful and always offering to get us things if we needed. Everyone complimented the food and place, so we are very happy to have used the Berkeley Plaza.

The Berkeley Plaza is the ideal banquet/wedding hall for a ceremony and reception for up to 350 guests. The staff are very accommodating and care about the couple as well as the wedding. The food is exceptional! Everything that was made tasted perfect. And our wedding cake was also made by them. And there was no cake cutting fee at all. They made the cake. We chose a design from a large book of various cakes. We chose the filling, the flavor and the icing.

The Berkeley Plaza was the most professional and affordable place we found in Central New Jersey. From the moment that my mother-in-law and I walked into the place for the bridal show, I was impressive by how attentive they were to knowing that this was "our day". We had a Saturday evening wedding and the price per head was perfect. Everyone that came to the wedding talked about how amazing the food was and they were simply amazed at how much food there was.

The only issue that I had with the planning aspect with the venue was the fact that at times, they were not as flexible to meet with us on our schedule. After booking the Berkeley, my husband and I moved to New York for work. When we asked for tasting dates a few weeks in advance, they did not get in contact with us until 2 days prior. When we attempted to set up the appointment for the final sit down and menu options, it became very apparent that we needed to pick a day during the week, after being told that they would "try" to see us early on a Saturday or Sunday. It was extremely difficult for us to ask for time off of work on such short notice.

I would highly recommend the Berkeley Plaza to any of my friends that are looking for a great deal, amazing food, and the perfect reception hall for their wedding.

Food, excellent. Quality, excellent. Location, eh. Inside, good but dated. Outside, eh. Wait staff, good. Responsiveness, okay. Bar, excellent. -- The bakery they work with ruined (emphasis on RUINED) my wedding cake. It was nothing even close to what we asked for. It looked horrible and the bakery owner treated us like crap. Seriously. My husband was pissed. The Maitre D (Michael was ours) was good, but he kind of tried too hard... He was a little in my face, and a little too intrusive. But he tried to be helpful and thorough. They charge extra to turn on these new lights that line the ballroom.... which costs them nothing to do... but because my cake was so wrong they did me that "favor" for free. They do pay a lot of attention to detail, which I appreciate, but I was NOT confident in them and had to see it all for myself the day of - mostly because I had to repeat things a lot always to a different person, and because I got some nasty "you need to call us back and come here on This day" phone calls and the lack of help with regards to the baker... The butler served hors d'oeurves were nice during cocktail hour, but I wouldn't know personally since no one offered me any... (not like I'm the only gal in a big white dress... c'mon!) I'd recommend this place if someone needs a location with good food and quality, but don't go here if you want convenience (no nearby hotels, not the easiest to get to) or something fancy (it's aging, creaky floors, dated look on the mural walls, kitschy, no outside photo ops except a stone path/fountain/gazebo).

I must say the Berkeley Plaza was a beautiful place. We had our ceremony and reception there. The owner and staff we're absolutely great until our big day. My husband and I were extremely disappointed with the way the staff and owner presented themselves on our special day. For starters, the owner who booked us failed to show up on the day of our wedding, the maître d showed up at the same time as me (the bride) !!!! The place wasn't open when my husband arrived with all his groomsmen. They had to wait outside for nearly two hours.... My husband had to direct our wedding party and guests who we're arriving for the ceremony! I couldn't tell you the name of our personal server during our reception because we barely had one. Let's just say all the venue did was provide a place, bar, and food. Horrible service. The day was perfect and we learned to roll with it, and still enjoy our special day. I'm not much of a review poster but I was that disappointed with the Berkeley Plaza that I had to. Beautiful place, good food but horrible service.
