The gramercy was gorgeous. Our guests spoke so highly of the venue's pure beauty and we took all of our wedding pictures inside. The food was second to none and Syed was a gracious host. He followed up with us from the day we walked in until the second our wedding was over. He even followed up with us to wish well on our honeymoon and ensure we had a good time on our day. I cannot even begin to thank Syed, Pauline, and the rest of the staff at the gramercy for all they have done. I highly recommend it to anyone looking for a venue. Thank you Syed and team for making our day so special!

Amazing !!!!!!!!!! The only word we can think of to describe the venue and service ! We looked at about a dozen venues and are completely happy with our choice. We worked with Syed during the planning and found all aspects of venue to be flawless the day of our wedding. Syed answered all questions, was flexible and made planning very stress free. The Venue is gorgeous and the food is delicious ! The day of Pauline was our Maître'D and she ensured we ate, got us all of our drinks and even made sure my feet were comfortable in my shoes (bride) !! Pauline was very attentive and we did not have to look for her, at all, throughout the night; anytime we needed something she was there ! The night was truly like a dream come true ! Syed knew we loved sushi and added in a whole plate full at our head table ! The staff there works to make sure your day is as special as possible ensuring no details are overlooked ! All of our guests spoke highly of our wedding, the night was truly amazing ! We highly recommend the Gramercy !!!!! Thanks for everything !!!! -- Diana & Jerry

I found Lakeside Manor through a friends Facebook picture. I thought it was so pretty. I loved the chandeliers and the draped ceiling , so I asked her where she got married. She told me the name and I booked a viewing of the place. The pictures did not do it justice! Needless to say we booked right then and there! Next was the food tasting! One word ...delicious! That's where we met Paulina. She was adorable and I hoped we had her for the night of our wedding! Working with Syed was beyond easy!!! Anything we asked he made come true! He made planning our wedding SIMPLE! The night of our wedding we pull up and who greets me at the door... Paulina! I was so excited! She was beyond amazing the whole night! Not only for my husband and I , but for my mother! She took care of everything... Right down to making sure I had a drink in my hand! Our wedding was AMAZING... Because it was at the gramercy! People are still raving about the food and the venue!!!

Thankfully we plan on our one and only wedding, but the venue, food, and services we experienced at the gramercy, was exceptional and we wish we could relive that evening over and over . Syed and his staff gave my wife and myself the best experience we could ever hope and wish for. There isn't any other venu I would chose if given the chance to pick anyone we wanted for free. The night was great and our family and friends are still complimenting on how great the evening was for them l. We're lucky we found the gramercy and thankful for all they did for us. We would recommend the gramercy at Likeside Manor to everyone.

From my very first phone call to the Gramercy up until the day of my wedding, Syed and his staff were the best at answering any questions, concerns or requests in such a timely manner I felt very secure knowing my day would be everything I dreamed of. As Syed said in our first meeting "I can't tell you to come back next week for a repeat if something goes wrong, so everything will be perfect that day". He sure did keep up his end of the deal; Perfect is not a strong enough word to describe what my wedding was, from the amazingly delicious food and professional and attentive staff there was no detail overlooked. I have been receiving phone calls and emails from friends and family that continuously rave about the great time they had that night. If I had to plan a wedding all over again I would choose the Gramercy a hundred times over.

Syed and his team at The Gramercy did an amazing job for my wedding. I am in the food and beverage business myself and had no complaints! A majority of my guests who are in the same business had nothing but rave reviews and couldn't find one flaw. I highly recommend The Gramercy, from beautiful event space to delicious food that I'm still receiving compliments on months later!

my husband and I had our wedding on March 22, 2014 and our guests are still raving about everything. From the minute we walked into the Gramercy we fell in love with its unique and modern style. Syed was absolutely wonderful to work with from day 1. Any time we had a question or needed advice he was always there to answer our questions. On the day of the wedding Pauline was a doll and anything we needed she got for us. From the cocktail hour to the dinner the food was amazing and our guests are still talking about how great the food was. The décor in the gramercy makes this venue unique. Syed and the staff at the Gramercy allowed us to have our fairy tale wedding and we cant thank everyone enough at the gramercy. we wish we could do it all over again! we def recommend anyone getting married to go to the gramercy!

The Gramercy at the Lakeside Manor is by far the best venue to have a party at. Everything was perfect, food was fantastic, and of course Syed! He was great to work with and he makes sure that everything is perfect! I highly recommend this venue to anyone planning a wedding!

It has been two weeks since our wedding, and friends and family are still GUSHING about the amazing time they had at our wedding at The Gramercy! We have heard nothing but wonderful reports about the food (which I wish I had taken time to eat more of) and the exceptional service from the employees of The Gramercy. I knew when I walked into the building that The Gramercy was where I wanted my wedding! It is so different and classy compared to so many venues in New Jersey. It is not a cookie cutter wedding venue, it is so much more than anywhere else I looked! Syed & Paulie took care of my husband and I from the very first day I booked the wedding, until late into the night of our wedding! Awesome job Gramercy! Our friends are actually booking their wedding at The Gramercy after attending ours! If that isn't a good review, I don't know what is!

We had our wedding at the Gramercy this weekend and everything was absolutely perfect! Syed was wonderful throughout the entire planning process and fulfilled all my requests! He made my wedding dream become a reality! Pauline was wonderful from making sure my husband and I were eating, to little things like holding on to my lip gloss/lip stick, and even placing my flats under my table so I could slip my feet into them when my heels started to hurt! the servers and bartenders were wonderful and did an amazing job! The food was outstanding!!! even the pasta pleased my mother who is from Italy and only will usually only eat her own pasta! The place was clean, organized, beautifully lit and furnished. The team catered to all of our needs and wants! They exceeded my expectations!!!

My husband and I had never been to an event at the Gramercy at Lakeside Manor, but immediately fell in love with the venue and its decor. The hall is absolutely beautiful and elegant without being over the top. Working with Syed was a dream, and he and his staff were always there to answer the billion questions that we had. Our wedding completely exceeded any expectations that we may have had. The food was delicious and our guests have not stopped talking about it and say that it was the best wedding they have ever been to. It truly was the best night of our lives and am sad that it is over!

My husband and I looked at many, many venues before finally stumbling upon The Gramercy at Lakeside Manor. We could not be happier with our choice to have our wedding here. I will start by reviewing the staff. The staff exceeded our expectations. Syed was great to work with and was very flexible. He has a great sense of humor and makes it easy for you to plan your wedding. There was not much we needed to do, everything was done for us. My bridal attendant for the night was EXCEPTIONAL! She was at my hand and foot all night long. I could have not been happier. The food ... although as the bride I did not eat much, everything I ate was delicious. My guests all seemed very pleased and also commented on how delicious the food was. The presentation of everything was also amazing. The venue itself is beautiful, modern, and elegant. I would recommend all brides to have their wedding here. What a wonderful experience it was for us both!

We had our Wedding at the Gramercy at Lakeside Manor on 11/3/13, we have nothing but great things to be said. Everything was perfect, Syed was wonderful and very professional, Pauline was great she helped me the whole day from getting my dress on, to serving me food and drinks, to helping me with my dress in rest room, until the very end where I had to get my dress off, the whole staff was professional and I cannot say anything bad about anyone. The Food was awesome, everyone spoke about the cocktail hour having SO many choices and the taste was out of this world, the dinner surf and turf was cooked to prefection! The vinnese also had wonderful cakes, ice cream bar and coffee bar. Everyone still talking about how the food was so wonderful. Also how great the place looks, the cocktail hour room looks like a manhattan night club very modern, the ballroom is esquiste. Everyone and everything at the Gramercy had made my wedding dreams come true. We did not have to worry about a thing and I was so happy with everything. I highly recommend the Gramercy at Lakeside Manor for a Wedding or any affair.

The service was exceptional. There was a server for every table of about 10 guests. Their promptness to guest requests was immediate and professional. Their manners and sense of responsibility were impeccable. The staff was conducive to change, and there were a few last minute ones that were met with smiles.
We would like to express how impressed we were with Pauline, the maître 'd. She catered to our every need the entire evening. There was not a single thing that went unnoticed or unattended by her. She is a gem and a remarkable member of Gramercy's staff.
There are not enough accolades that I could use to express our gratitude for Syed's note to details, professionalism, and ability to remain calm and steady in the face of what could at times be turmoil. His knowledge and foresight made planning our daughter's wedding a pleasurable experience. We commend him for all he has done to make Samantha's day so very special and memorable.
We would be remiss, if we did not mention the phenomenal food that was presented throughout the wedding. From the passed hors d'oeuvres through to the Viennese table, the amount of food, it's quality, and taste were raved about all evening by our guests. The presentation was beautiful and its abundance and variety were overwhelmingly exceptional.

The second I walked into the Gramercy, I looked at my "then fiancé " and said " This is the place!!! ". Everything about the place was beautiful from top to bottom (simple and elegant). I was greeted by Syed who was just calming and a pleasure to deal with from the beginning to end. On my wedding night, I had "Pauline" who was my assistant. She accommodated me with everything!!! She was the best and made every request possible, from getting me a pencil eraser as my earring back, helping me in the bathroom with my bustle, making sure I had food (which was amazing!) , calming me when it came to walking down the stairs, coming by all the time to make sure I was ok, making sure our families were saved centerpieces, to wrapping up my champagne flutes (So I wouldn't knock them over) :O). My family and friends could not stop talking about how beautiful the place was, the cocktail hour, the dinner, etc. I just wish the night didn't fly by so fast. I am forever grateful to Syed and the Gramercy for making my day so beautiful! ~ Teri and Jason

From the moment I stepped in to the newly renovated LSM, I knew this is where I would get married. Syed, the maitre'd is BEYOND accomodating and happy to help with anything he can. The staff is friendly and superior in their professionalism and service. We had our ceremony outside, and the simplicity of their outside patio is what makes a statement. Our guests RAVED about the food; especially the layout for cocktail hour. The lighting, the house florst, everything is just simply perfection. If you are a Bride looking for a venue that has EVERYTHING as an option for a great value, this is the place!

I had my wedding at the Gramercy on August 31st, 2013 and it went flawless! Prior to booking there, we looked and visited about 10 places, mostly in North Jersey, and I did not really like any of them that much. And the ones that were nice were super expensive! They all kind of looked the same and were very generic. My sister found Gramercy on the internet and so we went to take a look. We absolutely loved it!!! It was exactly what we were looking for! Very elegant, chic, modern and fresh! This venue was the nicest we have seen so far (including going to other weddings). And it was not just its beauty - Syed was very easy to work with and helped us a lot! We had absolutely no issues with the venue during our wedding planning. It was such a pleasure to work with them! The place is gorgeous, but the food was also soooo delicious and plentiful! Great presentation and phenomenal taste! and lots, lots of food!!! People could hardly eat my desserts because they were so full but they were able to pack them home, which was very nice :) Syed was there the whole time to make sure everything went well and Pauline was our maitre'd. She did such a great job - she was treating us like royalty including my Mom and sister! She also packed our dinner for us because we did not have time to eat it! Words cannot express how happy I was with this venue...a great venue really sets the mood for the whole wedding. If you want something different and not as generic, you should definitely take a look at the Gramercy at Lakeside Manor - stunning, great food, flexible and very easy to work with! Booking them was very stress-free, which is what you need when planning a wedding. I would recommend this place in a heartbeat!

Syed and his team at the Lakeside provided wonderful service both leading up to our big day and on the wedding day itself. The food and service are just wonderful. Working with the Lakeside was great and felt very personal, Syed even played a part in helping to make my bridal shower a surprise (which was also at the Lakeside). We looked at quite a few places but my heart was set on the Lakeside, the inside is absolutely stunning and the food is great! Our maitre d for the evening was on top of everything, making sure we ate and drank plenty and enjoyed our evening without a worry! What we also loved about this venue is that you are the only event that day so they focus only on that. Really a wonderful experience working with this venue!

He made sure everything was exactly the way we wanted. After being guests at this venue, we were able to see it through the eyes of OUR guests. To this day we are still getting compliments and rave reviews about our wedding. The staff was top notch and not a detail was overlooked. We had our ceremony outside and the space couldn't have been more picturesque and beautiful. The cocktail hour was simply amazing. With so many choices and an abundant amount of food, it was impossible to not be full! As the bride and groom we were catered to and Syed made sure we were able to eat everything and enjoy the cocktail hour with our guests. The reception went off without a hitch. The room looked magnificent and every detail was perfect. Syed and the staff were very attentive throughout the entire night. We consider Syed part of our family and our friend now. The only bad part was when we had to leave. The day couldn't have gone any smoother. We will continue to use this venue for other events in our lives.

Words cannot express how grateful I am to Syed and his staff at The Gramercy at LAkeside Manor for helping my special day come to life!!!!!! From the day we went to see the place, to the last hour, everything was perfect. Syed was always available throughout the entire experience. He made us feel like we were the only wedding that he was catering to anytime we spoke. There were no unpleasant surprises and everything was as it should have been. He was flexible with the menu to and even helped with ideas. The venue in itself was modern and sexy. They have their own lighting which made a stunning effect throughout the night. My guests were in awe the entire night. The food was fresh, unique and delicious -- just as it was when we had the tasting. The staff was professional and courteous. Our Maitre'D was by my side, as well as by the bridal parties and my moms the entire night. She made every request possible. Furthermore, Syed worked with all of our vendors and assisted them with any requests...which made everything that much more pleasant. THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR MAKING MY SPECIAL DAY PERFECT!!!

Where do we begin, The Gramercy staff is wonderful and Syed is impeccable from the moment you walk in the hall speaks for itself shouting modern and classy. The food is fantastic! Cocktail hour was spectacular with several stations. The main course we had a few selections, including plates for vegetarian just as hearty as a meat plate and we opted for platted desserts. To this day guests exclaim how they were licking their plates. As the main couple, we were treated as VIPs, we had a server (Paulina) who was so sweet she helped us throughout the entire night. The rest of the servers were great as well, there was a mix up of tables and it was taken care of so fast that the problem was resolved in a matter of seconds, not minutes. They were all so sweet and attentive to our guests. The bartenders were fast and made some great cocktails. The Gramercy also has a new great lightening system which is fantastic, one "extra" to deduct from another vendor. They also have an outside patio for guests who wanted to smoke or get a breathe of fresh air. Which also can be used for wedding ceremonies if we are not mistaken. This entire evening could not have gone right without Syed and his assistant Victoria. His attention to your needs as a couple and personable approach is everything we wanted in a vendor. He knows that amount your spending on this special day, and wants each couple to get what they really desire. Syed watches out for you like that cool uncle that you know would jump over leaps and bounds for your happiness.

All I can say is this..... If you are looking to have a great and stress free event, then this is where you should have it.
Syed and the staff took care of everything for me. They are suppppper nice and professional.

My wedding was a dream come true. My wedding had a lot of bumps along the way and I was worried how everything would turn out because I am the worrier type. But, Syed hands down handled everything and even helped me with things not involved at all with the venue. On the day of the wedding I had an issue with the photographer and Syed told me and my husband to relax and enjoy ourselves, 5 min later the photographer was back to work and worked as he should have. Needless to day I ended up with over 2ooo pictures. lol
Oh just a side note. Syed (the OWNER) is so sincere with his work that at the end of the night as I expressed my thankfulness to him on how perfect he made my wedding we actually cried together. (yes i said CRIED... (real tears)) It goes a long way when someone sees you and your feelings as more then dollar signs.
The Gramercy at Lakeside Manor is a beautiful venue. Syed goes above and beyond and I'm not saying this lightly. Every one of my guest said the venue was wonderful, the food was delicious, and the staff were friendly. Several of my guest even told me that this was the first wedding that they had ever been too that they didn't leave hungry.
In total i would rate this venue a 10 but Event Wire only allows 5 stars =/

Syed and his team were very accommodating and professional. They made us worry free and took care of us and our family with flawless service. Syed was very flexible when arranging details and made the process all that much easier. My new husband and I had the best time and our guests said it was the best wedding they've ever been to ( I have to agree). The food was amazing and there was plenty of it. All in all I would recommend this venue to anyone planning a wedding or any other special event. Thanks Again Syed, it was perfect :)

My wedding is June 16th, almost here and the excitement and anxiousness I have built up has so much to do with how amazing Syed has been through the entire planning and not with just their venue but with a lot of other things to do with the wedding as well! E has steered us in all the right directions and has been a completely gentleman! I can't wait for the actually wedding day but the time spent planning just to get there has been a smooth experience thanks to Syed and his assistants.

So now that the wedding has just past this weekend, I can't tell you what an experience Lakeside Manor has been for our guests and ourselves thanks to Syed and his staff. Syed is the man. He really was the major emphasis on making our day the most important day of our lives. Our family and friends were blown away by the beautiful atmosphere and place the Lakeside manor truly is. THE FOOD!!! Oh My God!! :) . According to my guests, the food; "Delicious", "So Modern and beautifully displayed with delicious combined flavors". All enjoyed the food so much as well as my husband and I (I want the chicken skewers right now!). Family/Friends felt like they were partying in the city which is exactly the vibe my husband and I were going for. I can’t even begin to tell you the great comments our guests were sharing with us and amongst each other. Syed recommended us to top vendors that were all apart of making our dream wedding come true. He played such a major part just like a wedding planner for us. He constantly assured us that everything will go accordingly and smooth and it really did, his staff was very attentive and responsive to our guests. Not only did this place help us make an amazing wedding happen, we got to work with great people and established a friendship with Syed! WE LOVE THE LAKESIDE MANOR!! Definitely the place to throw an extravagant party

The venue was absolutely beautiful and the food was amazing. Even the most critical of my family members were impressed with the food. Syed was so accommodating and patient. He had great suggestions and listened to all of our requests. Paula and the rest of the staff were wonderful and right there whenever we needed them. People are still telling me what a beautiful wedding we had!

Even the ceremony space was beautiful. I didn't even mind that it was pouring rain the entire day. Even my photographer was excited about how great the pictures were because of the lighting and the area in the front near the staircase.

Our wedding was everything I dreamed it would be! Classy, contemporary, and elegant. Can't wait to plan our next event there!

let me start by saying that this place is amazing
second everyone was talking about how good the food was
third...Syed made one of my dream come true by having the ceremony outdoors
he waited until the last minute to make the decision about indoor or outodoors
and i'm so happy he did ...we had a beautiful outdoor wedding
But prior to that ...if you think you will be all stress out like i was because your family is driving you nuts or your fiance forgets to bring something or the shuttle took some of our guest to the wrong place ....this is the right place for you
Syed and Pauline (i hope i have her name right) knew how to calm down with kind words and alcohol :)

I love this place ...my guests were very happy with everything from cocktail hour to the last minute of our wedding

def. have your wedding there or at least go and take a look how faboulous this place is

Til this day I have friends & family telling me how amazing and beautiful it was and the food was delish. I truly felt like Cinderella on my big day with my Prince.

One friend said he felt like he was at a celebrity event. Pls chose The Gramercy!!!! THANKS SYED!!!! (MUAH)

From the moment I walked into their BEAUTIFUL lobby, I knew I had to have our special day there. When we first met w/ Syed, he was nothing but accommodating to me and our family. The planning seemed effortless because they took care of every little detail. Even when we had a problem with the hotel calling us back, Syed was right on top of it, and referred us to another company, which took care of us just as good. The staff couldn't be more helpful, and made sure we didn't want or need for anything. I will always remember Syed and the staff at The Gramercy at Lakeside Manor, for making our day perfect.

Syed was wondeful, as well as his assistant Pauline. Anytime we needed anything it was brought to us before we could even ask for it. Pauline had pulled us aside at cocktail so we could enjoy some of the food, which was great because it was hard to get away from the guests and she brought us a little bit of everything. The place was breathtaking!!!! They did everything I asked for and beyond. My husband and I could not have asked for a better day and they have exceded our expectations. The food was AMAZING! Our guests keep ranting and raving about the portion size as well as the quality and taste. I strongly recommend this place to other brides... Thank you Syed, Pauline and the lakeside manor employees!

I would recommend The Gramercy at Lakeside Manor to all who is looking to have a special occasion. Syed and the staff went above and beyond. We had some hurdles to cross but we always came to a solution together. My wedding was beautiful and I married the man of my dreams! Thank you Lakeside for making our big day memorable.

Words can't express how lucky I was to have found this venue for my special day. Odds were against us with planning a party under 100ppl with only 2 months notice, a strict budget, and a firm date. Despite all of that, Syed still worked with us. I feel we got a lot of value for our money from the food to the decor. Our ceremony was very simple yet breath taking. The venue itself is gorgeous. So many of my guests were taken back by the romantic lighting, the chandeliers, the food & it's overall elegant decor. Syed was truly a god send. Syed, Thanks for all your help & creativity. Our event turned out better than We expected...You can't ask for more than that!

I have been dealing with the Lakeside for many years for various functions and organizations, including several family parties. When it was time for my wedding, there was no other choice. The professionalism and value as well as the fantastic service from start to finish was amazing!! My guests thought that the cocktail hour was better than most weddings overall that they have been to.

I highly recommend the Gramercy at Lakeside Manor to anyone! Don't be afraid of the advertised prices, they are willing to work with any budget. Also if you are flexible with your date, they have various specials throughout the year for the off season.

The fact that I am taking the time to write this review while on my honeymoon should speak volumes!!!!

What can I say, The Lakeside Manor was more than any girl could ever dream for! I started my search for venues last year prior to the renovations; even then the place was beautiful, but now GORGEOUS! I´m from North Jersey and we have our share of beautiful venues but The Lakeside Manor was the only venue I found that matched my expectations due to the large number of Platinum Wedding reality shows on television...lol. You MUST deal with Syed!! He was the most easy going and understanding person I could ever work with. He makes you feel like the only bride he´s servicing, even months prior to the big day. By the end of the event, I feel we´ve made a friend for life. With my being on a strict budget and having no professional planning background or assistance he was able to make my vision become a reality. I planned for my ceremony to take place outside on the patio but was rained out ;( Syed adjusted without any delay and transformed the ballroom into the most beautiful ceremony....my guest had no idea that wasn´t the original plan. Pauline, who assisted my husband and I was great as well. She handled every small detail, making sure I ate something as well as even bustling my dress! (My bridesmaids were too busy celebrating...lol). The venue is so beautiful on its own, no need to thousands of dollars worth of flowers or extravagant decor...a little goes a looong way here!

If you are a bride, or groom, looking for somewhere memorable, a place where your family and friends will talk about for years to come, a place where you feel proud of the amount you spend on this very important day, leaving with no regrets....Lakeside Manor is the place for you!

Don´t just take my word for it....stop in and see for yourself...YOU WON´T BE SORRY!

They were so accomodating and basically provided me with whatever I asked for. Syed was such a pleasure to work with and his positive attitude just made everything easier. I have never worked with more of a professional than Syed. The venue is beautiful, the food was beyond delicious and I highly, highly recommend this venue for any party needs. Thank you Lakeside and thank you Syed for such a memorable evening.

I cannot say enough good things about the Gramercy at Lakeside Manor, Syed, and the entire staff. My wedding was nothing short of simply the best time I've ever had! The place looked incredible, the lighting was amazing, and the food was not to be believed. We had a stellar cocktail hour (including most, if not all, stations and additions (well worth the additions, might I add!) Our guests were raving about the place, the food, and just the ambience the entire night. My new husband and I highly recommend this venue for a wedding or any other event. I wish I could do it all over again!

The Lakeside Manor is by far the best venue that a person can choose to host their wedding. The place is simply beautiful! The staff was beyond courteous, respectful and attentive to the needs of me and my husband. They also did an amazing job in taking care of everyone at my wedding. Not one of my guests had anything negative to say! The event was loved by everyone who attended it. The value that we got was also outstanding and simply put not only was this by far the nicest venue that we came across it was also the most affordable. They do not play games at The Lakeside Manor. They deliver on all of their promises and even provide you with some great surprises along the way. I would highly recommend this venue to anyone who is looking to get married. Lastly, we dealt primarily with Syed Raza. He was simply the nicest and most professional person that we came across throughout this entire process. You are crazy to have a wedding anywhere else!

My husband and I had the absolute best experience at Lakeside Manor. Every single member of the staff made us feel like we were the most important clients ever. Syed Raza is the backbone of this venue. He was extremely professional and you could tell how much he loves his job. He made it his personal mission to ensure that we had the best wedding experience ever. I truly cannot speak highly enough of Syed.
The venue is absolutely breathtaking on the inside and it's beauty is only enhanced by the delicious food and amazing service. No matter what crazy idea I had, they were able to ccomodate it. The best way we can think of repaying them is to continue to book their venue for our events in the future, and that is exactly what we plan on doing.

We had our wedding at The Lakeside Manor last April 2012 and it was absolutely perfect ! The WHOLE STAFF were wonderful! The food was unbelievable, lots of variety , a cocktail Hour that my guests still talk about, it was amazing, and the room was so well decorated, the service was extraordinary . The main salon was also stunning! Every little detail, was perfect, Syed made sure not only our expectations were met but he went above and beyond!! With many surprises we did not even expected! He really worked with us from the very first time we met until the end of our big night.
We also would like to thank the executive Chef Guss, who put this whole menu and cocktail Hour choices together, we were so pleased and grateful for everything he did for us ! We not only had sooo much food but it was so well presented , every single dish was cooked to perfection !
The place was already pretty when we met back in June 2011 to discuss dates, but now with the renovations made early this year, the place looks breathtaking; the lobby, the rugs, the chandeliers, the restrooms, the cocktail hour salon, the lighting, the bars , the decoration, the lounge area, everything is so classy, cozy, elegant, The pictures came out beautiful . It really looked like a million bucks wedding and pricewise was the best around for the quality and quantity of the food and service you get .
There are not enough words to Thank you guys for making our wedding, one of the best and most precious day of our lives!
I would definitely recommend this place, you won’t regret .

I am so thankful we booked The Lakeside Manor now The Gramercy at The Lakeside Manor for our wedding on March 25, 2012. We were already blown away by the facility when we first saw it over a year ago. But then they renovated and our jaws dropped! What a spectacular and unique place! George was very accommodating and worked with our very tight budget and was always professional and reachable. The venue is incredible with a brand new marble dancefloor which was big enough even for our big Italian family! Everyone is still raving about the venue and the FOOD! We had such large quantities of amazing incredible food. So much that there were some leftovers and George even kindly let us take some home! We had delicious dinners for almost a week after that! The servers are outstanding!! Paulina in particular went above and beyond to keep me happy from helping me with my bustle to bringing me my makeup bag from the bridal suite to the sweetheart table. She was always attentive and always asking me if I needed anything. Wonderful service, delicious food and amazing venue! You can't go wrong here. Please book; you won't be disappointed!

Also, Paulina, the bridal attendant was so sweet. Anytime I turned around or needed something she was there. Everyone raved and continues to rave about our wedding. The food, service, decor, bar staff was outstanding. Our wedding day was more amazing than we ever imagined and all the credit is to the Lakeside Manor.

Our wedding on October 29, 2011 was absolutely perfect thanks to the staff at The Lakeside Manor. Syed was a tremendous help during my entire wedding planning process. He paid attention to every detail and when our day came, we were thrilled with how everything turned out. The ballroom is amazing and so spacious. Our guests raved about the food all night. The staff was great, especially Pauline. Anything we wanted, we got right away. Syed treated us like royalty on our wedding night and we were able to enjoy everything. Our family and friends are calling our wedding "Wedding of the Year." I would highly recommend The Lakeside Manor to anyone planning a big event. You will not be disappointed! --Christina & Frank

My wife and I had our wedding reception at the Lakeside Manor in Hazlet, NJ on Saturday October 15th, 2011. I rarely write reviews, only when I experience a service or product that goes way beyond expectations.

The wedding planning process is a daunting one to say the least, especially for the future wives. I have to admit, I had a very small roll in it! Even so, I did see everything that went on and interacted with several vendors for our special day. The Lakeside Manor went above and beyond throughout the entire process, beginning to end. The maitre d', Mr. Raza did an impeccable job with our wedding. We left our reception with the thought 'that was perfect, and could not have been better'. Our guests alike were constantly praising everything about the night, the food, the environment, the staff, everything. I can't count the amount of times we heard 'This is the best wedding I've ever been to'. To hear that from some of our most critical, fault finding relatives was amazing!

The Lakeside Manor is the real deal, world class professional service. I would recommend it to anyone planning a wedding or event. Mr. Raza did so much for us, he handled situations that were not his problem AT ALL, but handled them anyway because he truly cares about his clients. He also managed to keep my wife calm through all of the potential 'bridezilla' outbursts that just happen as part of the wedding planning process.

We are looking forward to returning to the Lakeside Manor for future events, several friends that attended the wedding are now considering the Lakeside Manor as well. Being in our late 20's, many of our friends are getting married. We have been to and been IN, several weddings in the past few months. What you get for your money here is jaw dropping compared to other venues we have been to and looked at. If you want great food, atmosphere and world class service for your wedding or party, you cannot go wrong here.

We were EXTREMELY pleased with the attention to detail, the cooperation, the friendliness and professionalism of the management and staff of ALL aspects of our function. EVERYTHING was done as promised and without delay. The atmosphere provided, the food, drink and entire atmosphere provided for our function was second to none. I DONT KNOW WHY ANYONE WOULD HAVE THEIR WEDDING OR ANY OTHER FUNCTION AT ANY OTHER FACILITY IN THE CENTRAL NJ AREA. I cannot say enough good things about The Lakeside Manor. Aces and gold stars all the way.

We have nothing but the best things to say about Lakeside Manor. Our original venue went out of business with just 8 weeks to go. Lakeside Manor was high on our original list but the date we wanted was booked. Fortunately for us...Lakeside Manor became available on our date and the decision to relocate there was an easy one. Even though the invites were already out...we figured it all out and we couldn't be happier. What could have been a disaster was made easy and stress free by Syed. He kept every promise he made to us and more. The food was spectacular. The service was great and we even got to enjoy our own event becuase Syed took care of everything. It was a perfect, perfect evening and the four parents were able to give our children their "Dream Wedding". Thank You for everything Syed!!!

My story is not usual, but it has a happy ending! When I was looking for a catering hall for my summer wedding the Lakeside Manor was already booked. So we booked my wedding at the Excelsior in Manalapan. Six weeks before my wedding, my parents got a call that the Excelsior was being closed in 2 wks. Talk about a nightmare.....but thanks to Syed and his staff I had my dream wedding. By fate, there was a cancellation same day and time at the Lakeside Manor b/c a bride had to postpone her wedding. IT WAS PURE FATE! When I met Syed he made us feel very welcome. He promised me I'd have a wonderful wedding and not to worry. The Manor is gorgeous- the ballroom was really breathtaking. The drapery on the ceiling is so elegant and with the special lighting looks even more amazing. Syed was very nice and easygoing to work with. I dont have one complaint. My ceremony was held inside and it was perfect. We used the wall dividers to hide the otherside and my florist added tulle to make it look pretty. It really came out great! All my guests have been complimenting the food and atmosphere. I hear the cocktail hour food was the best. As the bride, I didn't eat much that night. I was having a wonderful time and scared to stain my ballgown. LOL! The champagne toast was very cool with the sparklers. Our name in lights on the floor and the red lighting we used made it extra special. The dance floor was comfortable with our party of 200 guests. Our dramatic entrance from the staircase was incredible. It had a romantic look with the lights and tulle. My bridal suite was huge. Best suite I've ever seen. Syed is very professional and was visible throughout my wedding making sure there were no problems. His staff was also exceptional. The Vienese table is always a highlight with the chocolate fountain and assortment of goodies. I recommend this place to any bride looking for a romantic and elegant wedding. The outdoors is nice with the gazebo, I just didn't want to be outside in August in my ballgown with the heat. The Lakeside Manor has 1 wedding at a time...so there's no running into other brides or parties. Lakeside Manor is exceptional- check it out. :-)

The food was awesome and the Lakeside did a beautiful job. Syed made sure everything was to our liking and that all our questions, no matter how small or sounding stupid, were answered. He always made time for us and made my family feel valued. This was most appreciated when the stress started to creep in the week before our affair. Our daughter's Bat Mitzvah was a complete success and we just booked the Lakeside again for our son's Bar Mitzvah in June 2013. I couldn't imagine working with anyone else after our experience at the Lakeside.

Syed treated us like we were part of his family. Everyone wants the best for their family, and that is 100% what we got. From the day we booked the wedding and still to this day, Syed goes out of his way to make the day special. The wedding couldn't have gone any better, as Syed assured us from day one that he would take care of everything and all we had to do was show up and have a good time. When I say that he delivered on his every promise, from the food tasting to the fact that he himself was there the day of our wedding to oversee every little detail. The venue was beautiful, the food was absolutely deliscious and Syed promised us nothing short of perfection, and he certainly delivered, exceeding our expectations and making our wedding day perfect, and one that every guest will remember for a long time to come. Thank you Syed, for treating us like a member of your family, you certainly made the day magical.

We recently had our wedding at Lakeside Manor November 20, 2010. Lakeside Manor was more beautiful than we ever could have imagined. We knew that it was a beautiful place, but when we walked in on our wedding day, Lakeside Manor was absolutely gorgeous! Every single detail was perfect. We had our pictures taken here and the lake in the back made for a magnificent background. Our ceremony was inside Lakeside Manor. Syed and the staff did a great job with the set up for the 250 people that attended our wedding. The up lighting added to the elegance. The cocktail hour was incredible. The assortment of food and the presentation was remarkable and to die for. We really cannot express how perfect our wedding was at Lakeside. The maître de catered to us from start to finish. She ensured that we had food and drinks at all times. Syed and the Lakeside staff are wonderful people to work with. Syed was very helpful throughout my entire wedding planning! He was there from start to finish overseeing every detail to ensure that my wedding was flawless. We really cannot say enough great things about him. From the second that my wedding party arrived, Syed was right there greeting us and helping with anything we needed. The maître de and all the wait staff were very attentive. I can honestly say that while we were on our honeymoon EVERYONE called my parents and left messages stating it was the most beautiful wedding they ever attended and there would never be another one to compare to it. They were raving about the cocktail hour. People could not believe the assortment of food and how delicious it was. Lakeside delivered on everything that Syed promised to us. They even had a surprise for us, which is a tradition, that I will not ruin by telling what it was for future weddings there. We knew it was going to be the best day of our lives … but it by far exceeded our expectations!!!
Thank you,

We are so happy that we had our wedding reception at The Lakeside Manor. Working with Syed was an absolute pleasure. Any questions or concerns that my wife and I had, were addressed promptly and without error. He is truly a huge asset to the Lakeside Manor.

We got married just over a month ago, and the amount of compliments that we have received have been amazing. Most of the positive feedback was complimenting the look of the room, and the food. It really is a nice feeling to know that our guests enjoyed the wedding as much as we did.

We are so happy that we had our wedding reception at The Lakeside Manor. Working with Syed was an absolute pleasure. Any questions or concerns that my wife and I had, were addressed promptly and without error. He is truly a huge asset to the Lakeside Manor.

We got married just over a month ago, and the amount of compliments that we have received have been amazing. Most of the positive feedback was complimenting the look of the room, and the food. It really is a nice feeling to know that our guests enjoyed the wedding as much as we did.

The Lakeside manor was everything I ever wanted in a reception hall. The room was so beautiful and everyone complimented how amazing it looked. I must say though that Syed made it all happen. He was amazing to work with and I am so grateful for all his help. He always gave us his time and always made sure we were happy with everything. I really enjoyed him and I recommend him to everyone. The Lakeside manor is 100% the way to go.

The Lakeside Manor is a beautiful venue. I highly recommend it, not only for weddings, but for any events! After seeing about 4 to 5 reception venues, the Lakeside Manor is the only one that had everything I wanted: a big cocktail area that can accommodate our guests comfortably; an outside garden that the guests can freely go to; a spacious bridal suite; an elegant main reception hall with a staircase that the bride and groom can come down to as introduced; and most especially, it's affordable price. The Lakeside Manor truly has it all.

They definitely turned our wedding into a magical event -- from the warm and elegant ambiance, to the sparkling toast, the delicious food and desserts, and its courteous staff. Our family can't stop talking about how good the food was -- from the variety and abundance of food during cocktail, the delicious and big portions of main course, and the beautifully set up viennese desserts, with a chocolate fondue fountain!!!

But the main thing here is how affordable they are. For the price we paid, they did everything so well that our wedding reception could have been in an episode of "Platinum Wedding."

So thanks again to the staff of Lakeside Manor!

The Lakeside Manor gave me the most beautiful wedding I could ask for. Syed was wonderful. He was very professional and on top of everything. Never a problem with anything I asked for! The service was top notch the night of the wedding. Everything flowed wonderfully because everyone was so attentive to my husband and I, and to all the of guests as well. Everything we asked for was brought to us with a smile, in fact, I hardly had to ask for anything! Everything I wanted or needed done was done already for me. The Lakeside Manor was not only gorgeous, but I was actually told by a huge portion of the guests that the wedding was "gorgeous and the best food they had ever had at a wedding"..they were so impressed with the raw seafood bar and the huge assortment of delicious hors devours! People had acually told me it was the best wedding they had ever went to. I couldn't say enough good things about the Lakeside Manor. I wish I could have another wedding there : )

We fell in love with our wedding venue- The Lakeside Manor in Hazlet... The main hall is decorated with goregous chandeliers, large ceilings! It has character and ambience (not like most halls you see today w/ just high bland ceilings and walls). More beautiful than I could have imagined! The food as always is amazing. Our banquet director Sayed is personable yet professional, and is a great person to work with and stands by what he says.... People are still giving us compliments on how the room inside looked as well as how great the food was! -Lauren and Mike R.

The staff at Lakeside Manor was very accomodating and was able to fulfill our overall wedding vision. The place itself is so beautiful. The first time I walked into the foyer area, I was blown away and just knew that this was the perfect place to have our wedding. The reception room is so elegant and I loved the different lighting options- it looked amazing. They offer a huge amount of food for the cocktail hour and we got so many compliments on the delicious food. It was really such a dream come true and I wouldn't have changed a thing. Lakeside Manor provided exceptional service and were so easy to work with. I really worked hard to make the day a personal reflection of the two of us and everything was executed perfectly to make that happen. I was so happy with our choice and I'm so grateful that we had our perfect day.

This place is amazing. My mother had gotten married at the Lakeside Manor almost 20 years ago and I was always in love with the place.

Their staff is beyond amazing with their accomodations and their professionalism. Every person in that entire place will do anything you need at any given moment.

The decor was just amazing, they have done a ton of renovations in there in the last 5 years and it is just so beautiful.

Every one of my guests raved about the cocktail hour. The food was overflowing on platters and just great.

We had choosen to add the dessert hour, with 2 chocolate fountains ( i only like white chocolate and my husband likes dark ) so he gave us both, we had any dessert you would imagine as well as an expresso bar that people were blown away by.
I highly recommend this place if you dont want to worry about a thing.

I was not feeling well during the reception and their staff did everything they could to help me even offering to cook me something off the menu to help my stomach !

Amazing place!!!

We had our wedding reception here just 2 weeks ago and my husband & I were beyond happy with everything at this venue!! They were amazing!! While we were on our honeymoon we received tons of emails, phone calls, and texts from our guests telling us how amazing the food was, how gorgeous the place was, and how much they loved our wedding! Syed helped us with every detail and always reassured me that everything would go smoothly. He was wonderful. The girls that helped set up the day of our wedding did an amazing job as well!! Pauline was our server that day and she helped me with absolutely everything that night!! She was the best!! She was like a personal assistant..helping my girls with my dress, powdering my shoes if they hurt, and even making sure we ate something!! I can not say enough great things about this place and the staff. I am soooo happy we chose The Gramercy and will definitely be referring them to everyone!! If you chose them as your venue you will not be disappointed! Thank you again!

I have to give the Lakeside Manor an overall rating of 5 stars. The whole planning process with Syed went very smoothly. He was there to answer any questions and concerns I had, and promptly replied. Everything that was specified in the contract was given to us and the service was impeccable. The servers, the food, the venue were great! They assigned Paulina to take care of me and my husband and she is fabulous!!! She was so sweet and always kept everyone calm and happy. Because of my brother's delay, I had to wait in the limo for a long time. She came over and said all would be fine, calmed me down and brought over some water. Also, while we were taking pictures during the cocktail hour, food was brought to us outside. My wedding party was impressed with the level of service and so were we. Paulina never left my side during the whole wedding and was a great help when I had 5 mins to bustle my cathedral length train. Couldn't have done it without her. I had a great experience with the Lakeside Manor and would recommend it to others in a heartbeat!

I had a great experience with the Lakeside Manor and would recommend it to others in a heartbeat! Read less

Like so many other engaged couples, we spent weekend after weekend searching for the perfect venue for our wedding. After seeing many disappointing hotel ballrooms and outdated halls, we walked into The Gramercy and knew it was “the one.” The modern décor was exactly what we were looking for, from the dramatic draping and chandeliers in the ballroom to the club-like cocktail hour room. Nothing came close to The Gramercy and Syed who was so fantastic to work with. Our guests raved about the beautiful décor as well as the food stations during cocktail hour and the multi-course dinner. We found Syed to be the most responsive and diligent person to work with during the entire process. Pauline, my ‘bridal attendant’ was incredibly attentive. She made sure that we had cocktails, food, and even grabbed me a pair of flip flops from the bathroom when I couldn’t stand to wear my heels any longer. We are so thankful to Syed and The Gramercy team for making our wedding so special.

We had both our ceremony and reception and The Gramercy and I'd highly recommend it to anyone looking for an affordable, gorgeous venue in NJ!

I would recommend the Gramercy to any of my friends as we felt it was a lovely wedding. We got so many compliments on everything. There is only one thing that I felt was unfair, was the cost of the head waiter added to the per person amt. Maybe the other place were added in, but the cost was high. She was wonderful and gave attention to everything but for a 4 hour job $300 an hour seems crazy. This was on top of the .20% gratuity added in . Thats why I did not give the value a 5.

I was just not happy that we had 10 people not show up and we still had to pay for it. There should be more flexibility when it comes to that for any couple.

The wedding cake was delicious, I would love to know the name of the bakery so I can use them again

The lake side manor has a lot going for it. The price, wait staff, and rooms are all really great. We did however have a few hiccups during our ceremony that, with a little more care from Syed and other members of management, could have been avoided.

+ The months coming up the the wedding, when I would call and ask questions I would be told one thing, then when I called months later the answer was different. They don't appear to have organized management.

+ We had scheduled a food tasting with Sophia, our parents came along and we were quiet excited to show off our venue. When we got there, Sophia wasn't there. We sat in a room for 25 minutes before a member of the staff asked us, "what did you guys want to try?". This was both embarrassing and disappointing.

+ When I went to make the final payment to the venue, they said that they needed the last 1500 in cash so that they can pay the staff. This really made my bride and myself feel very uneasy, carrying that much money with us.

+ When our guests were arriving there was no one at the front door to greet them. I, the groom, had to tell people were to go. Syed, our maitre d', was no were to be found.

+ Our ceremony also almost botched. We had 75 guests come to our wedding. When I walked out to walk down the aisle, there were 40 guests seated on one side, the other side was empty, and 30 of our guests were being held in the parking lot so they would interrupt the out door ceremony. After my bride was let down the aisle, did they allow the 30 remaining guests take their seats. We wish that they would have allowed an extra 5 minutes for our guests to have a seat, before letting us walk down the aisle.

Despite all of these issues, my wife and I had an amazing day. The wait staff was attentive, the room was great, and food was awesome. Pauline, our attendant, was amazing, there wasn't a moment of the reception that we didn't have absolutely everything we needed.

Overall I am pleased with how the wedding went, but I do not like the way this place does business.

I was married at The Lakeside Manor back in 2011. I had dealt with Syed at the beginning of planning, but when I needed to make some changes with my wedding it seemed he got upset and pawned us over to another planner. Igave them a $1000 deposit and since I changed my reception around, I was only allowed to use $750 of it which I felt was crazy. George then picked up the planning from Syed, he was nothing but nice! Food is extremely good though. Syed could of used a little more professionalism on his part. He should remember that weddings are word of mouth.
