We can't say enough about the Grandview. They were a pleasure to work with from the beginning. Margaret was our contact person and she helped us with all the planning and details of the reception. She was so professional and flexible, even when our guest count kept changing! Victor was our maitre d. He was so organized and helpful. He even had a Tide stick handy when I dropped something on my dress. The weather wasn't great the day of the wedding, but everything still turned out perfect! The Grandview was decorated beautifully. They agreed to keep the Christmas decorations up for the wedding, per our request. The food was outstanding and all our guests keep talking about how wonderful the service was at the tables. We highly recommend this venue! You will not be disappointed. Oh! I almost forgot to mention...the Grandview is right next to the mid-Hudson bridge. If you e-mail the bridge authority, you can request the bridge be lit with your wedding colors the day of the wedding.

I had to plan a huge wedding in a very short time (two months) due to the fact that my father was diagnosed with stage 4 cancer and I wanted him to be there. Everyone was so accommodating and made the day perfect and flawless!! Big thanks to everyone!

When my husband and I were looking at places to have our reception we, just like everyone else, were looking for the best deal. Well, we got it!!!! After visiting a few places we had finally decided on one. That night we called our DJ who happened to be a close friend and told him. He suggested we continue looking and highly recommended The Grandview. I immediately went on their website and from the looks of it I thought it was going to be a fortune but I was wrong.
The following day we went there and met with Mike Post who was an amazing maître d'. He went over all they had to offer and then came the questions about price and surprisingly enough they gave more for the same prices of other venues and they had an amazing view of the Hudson River and the Mid-Hudson Bridge. Other places only had a view or a parking lot. As most brides do, I had questions and each time I received an answer right away. After we booked they invited us to a tasting and the food was nothing you could ever imagine, every bite was filled with flavor and presented with class. When it was time to make decisions about the menu and drop things off I received a call and we met that weekend. My husband and I walked out knowing our wedding was going to be seamless. Finally the day had arrived and it was like a dream come true. My entire wedding party, parents, and guests were treated like royalty. Each time they left their tables their napkins were replaced, their drinks were filled and as for my husband and me we didn't have to lift a finger before, during, or after. They set everything up and packed my in-laws car. The cake was baked on premise and I can't tell you how beautiful it was you wouldn't believe me, you would have to see it and it tasted like heaven!!! After the wedding we received compliments from all of our guests about the entire wedding. Thank you to the entire staff especial Mike and Caitlyn, we will be forever grateful!!!

The Grandview was the best possible choice we could have made in planning our wedding. The staff is courteous and beyond helpful. We were treated like royalty and our guest were treated the same way. We received nothing but compliments about The Grandview. From the beautiful view, excellent staff, delicious food, to the overall presentation. It was a tremendous value.

We had a truly phenomenal experience from the very first phone call, to numerous meetings, to the tasting, to the wedding day. From the first time we stepped foot at the grandview at a previous function, even way before we were engaged, we always knew we wanted to have our wedding at the Grandview. After looking at other venues nothing compared. The service we received was top notch, the food was delicious, and the views unmatched. Also I have a severe nut allergy and we had spoke about it extensively, but I feel they understood, and I felt comfortable and in good hands. Everyone was friendly and very professional, all the staff members we encountered we had a positive experience with. Everyone was always willing to help. We especially loved Michael and Melissa!!!! They were AMAZING!!!! Such a pleasure to work with and made our experience so much less stressful and smooth. They always communicated with me and got right back to us whenever we had any questions, very quick to respond.

Amazing!!!! I had read all of the other reviews raving about The Grandview, the staff and the food, but it wasn't until my own wedding day that I realized all the reviews were 100 percent true!

Everything was absolutely perfect! Margaret made the planning process a breeze and was open to all of the crazy ideas that I had in mind for my wedding day. She would respond to my notes and emails instantly and quickly became a part of my family during the planning process. Thank you Margaret, we couldn't have done it without you.

The staff was absolutely amazing on the day of the wedding. They were by my side the entire day and made sure that I had everything I needed. When my guests started arriving before I could make it back to the bridal suite after taking pictures, Victor and Kendra helped me sneak in through the ballroom and set up a barrier so my guests didn't see me before the ceremony.

The food was delicious. People are still telling me that cocktail hour was the best cocktail hour they have ever been to, and someone called me the other day to tell me that my wedding cake was the most delicious cake that they had ever tasted (note to other brides, eat your wedding cake! I took one bite and neglected to have it packed up. I regret it!) Everyone raved about their entrees and all of the courses leading up to them. We added the Gourmet Campfire which was delicious and a huge hit with all of our guests. They all loved the fact that it was interactive and that all the marshmallows were made on site.

Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! Before I left I told that staff that we were going to do it all again next week and I wish we could. I look forward to hosting other events at The Grandview in the future. xoxo
