My wife and I had our wedding at The Grandview last week (8/15) in the outdoor ballroom. We are pleased to report that everything from the rehearsal to the waning moments of our reception were absolutely perfect. The venue itself was gorgeous and the way everything was set up was appealing to the eye and comfortable. The space for the ceremony made for a very intimate setting that our guests loved. Our guests also raved about the food. Everything was delicious and The Grandview's menu provides a wide variety. I have never been to a wedding where the pieces of cake were as big as they were. The servers and bartenders were excellent. We would also like to give a shout out to Victor and Sally (maitre d' and bridal attendant) for helping the entire event run smoothly. Much like the entire staff of The Grandview, they were attentive, friendly, and professional. If you are looking for a wedding venue, The Grandview is a slam dunk. Perfect setting, professional and friendly staff, delicious food. My wife and I simply could not be any happier with our wedding experience at The Grandview.

My wedding was in the outdoor ballroom at the end of July. All of the guests could not stop talking about how beautiful the venue was. The ceremony area is gorgeous and is naturally shaded by a big beautiful tree. The staff was extremely easy and pleasant to work with. They listened to my list of very exact requests and instructions and carried them out without a flaw. The food was amazing as well. My guests loved the cocktail hour and the cake was delicious!! Several people have told me it was the best wedding they had ever been to. I wish I could do the day all over again, I wouldn't change a thing :-)

My husband and I just hosted our wedding ceremony and reception at The Grandview outside ballroom on June 29, 2014. I cannot thank The Grandview enough for such an incredible wedding! They truly made it the best day of my life! The food, staff, and breathtaking views were extraordinary. People were raving about the delicious food especially the cocktail hour with such a variety of choices. There was something to eat for absolutely everyone. The staff was top notch. They were friendly, professional and by my side every step of the way. One of the waiters knew everyone by first name at the table which was a nice personal touch. During family photos, I was starting to feel dehydrated so my bridal attendant urgently brought me water and crackers. Special thanks to Victor and Paige for their wonderful job! The breathtaking views overlooking the Hudson river look magnificent in photos. The Grandview exceeded my expectations! I would recommend this venue to anyone looking for a spectacular wedding!

The Grandview speaks for itself, the location is stunning, it really captures the beauty of the Hudson Valley, but the team is undeniably the BEST! Our wedding was everything we wanted it to be more thanks to the hard working and dedicated team at the Grandview. Lindsay was such a pleasure to work with, so sweet, helpful and responsive. We can't thank her and Victor enough for all they did to make our night special! We looked at 9 venues and the moment we walked in and were greeted with Lindsay's smile and the sights of the river and bridge we knew it couldn't be better than that.

My husband & I can not say enough about the Grandview. We fell in love with this venue from the moment we walked into it cause of the gorgeous view overlooking the Hudson. We were then really impressed with the excellent customer service we received with Brent. From looking to choosing this as our venue, Brent was always there to answer our questions. The maitre d & bridal attendant on the day of our wedding were very attentive & didnt miss a beat. Our guests LOVED the view, the food & the ambiance of our wedding & had a great time. We came from NYC & most guests didnt understand why we chose Poughkeepsie, until they saw the specatacular view & experienced the wonderful service of the Grandview.
We would HIGHLY recommend this venue to any couple looking for a venue that goes above & beyond & offers a great view for pictures as well. I wish I could do our wedding day all over again there :)

We had such a fantastic time at our wedding, and a big part of that was from the service we received from the Grandview. We planned our wedding reception and ceremony at the Grandview over the course of 2 years. We were always able to call and ask a question, and they provided guidance on creating the best menu and services that we needed. Our guests have continued to tell us that they had a fantastic time, and they raved about the food and drink options. On our wedding day the staff at the Grandview made everything perfect. During our pictures with the bridal party before the ceremony started the staff were there to get drinks for us and offer a hand with everything. We had a couple of people with dietary restrictions (vegans and gluten free), and they had plenty of options so everyone was happy!

After looking for the perfect venue for my wedding, we chose the Grandview based on location, views, and overall budget/price. We are SO happy that we made that choice. We got married in the middle of October and were lucky enough to have a perfect fall day and even had our ceremony outside - which was stunning. Being from Poughkeepsie myself, I take for granted how beautiful the Hudson Valley is but our guests from all over the country (California, Florida, Texas and as far away as Sweden) were beyond impressed.

Just as impressive as the scenery was the service. I can not tell you how attentive and professional everyone was - but not intrusive which was the perfect balance. We heard from countless guests how accomodating and just plain NICE all the staff were to our guests. Seriously, they seemed to be having a great time at my wedding too (while still being professional) which fit the feel we wanted - an intimate wedding where everyone was happy and having fun.

I also live in NYC so was planning my wedding from a bit of a distance. I worked with Lindsay who made everything so simple and easy. I trusted her from the very beginning and knew my wedding would run smoothly and as far as I knew, it was perfect!

Again, I almost over looked the Grandview as a location spot but I am so glad that I ended up having my ceremony and wedding there. It was the perfect mix of outdoorsy, casual and classic that I had wanted. I will be forever grateful.

A DREAM WEDDING!

The Grandview is appropriately named as it is just that...a "Grand View" of the Hudson & Mid Hudson bridge. We had looked at several venues in the Hudson Valley & this one far surpassed any of the others. The venue instantly struck us as beautiful & classy. We also knew we would have many guests coming from out of town, so the proximity to the Poughkeepsie Grand Hotel, along with the shuttle service, was a big plus!

I must say our wedding at The Grandview exceeded our expectations in every possible way. The food was amazing & the staff was exceptional! Our Maitre d Victor & Bridal Attendant Vanessa took such good care of my husband & I during the entire event. The rest of the wait staff was equally as attentive. A few of our guests commented on how impressed they were that their waiter addressed them by name AND had their drinks refilled before they even had a chance to ask for another! Lindsay was wonderful to work with, & quick to respond to my many questions. We did something a little different with our centerpieces & had the vision of using desserts on glass cake plates instead of flowers. Lindsay & the pastry Chef Kacey were fantastic, & worked with me to help make that vision come true. It ended up being a big hit & the wait staff was even kind enough to box up the cake plates (that we gave away at the end of the night) for our guests to take home. The service all in all was TOP NOTCH & it really made for the perfect wedding reception experience. I can't tell you how many of our guests have told us that it was the best wedding they've ever been to, & they are still raving about our wedding weeks later! :)

The Grandview is an amazing venue at an amazing location. Our wedding was in the outdoor tent and we had an incredible view during our ceremony and throughout the evening of the hudson river, fall foliage, and bridge (that was lit in our colors!). Throughout every step of the process, the staff at the grandview was firndly and professional and helped ease any of our concerns. Margaret, Victor, and Caitlyn were all fantastic. Our guests all had wonderful things to say about the food and service. I would highly recommend The Grandview for your wedding.

Our wedding was in the outdoor tent and we had an incredible view during our ceremony and throughout the evening of the hudson river, fall foliage, and bridge (that was lit in our colors!). Throughout every step of the process, the staff at the grandview was firndly and professional and helped ease any of our concerns. Margaret, Victor, and Caitlyn were all fantastic. Our guests all had wonderful things to say about the food and service. I would highly recommend The Grandview for your wedding. Read less

My husband and I we're so pleased with the grandview. They did a wonderful job with all the meetings we had up until our special day. Everyone who works there was very professional. They we're very patient with every meeting we had and with every question. Mike was our matri'd and he was awesome. Margaret was great too, she made me feel very calm which is what I needed. My guests we're stunned with how elegant the place was. The food, cake, and the views we're amazing. We couldn't have picked a better place to have a wedding. I knew The Grandview was the place when we had our first meeting. Thank you so much for everyone who worked so hard to make our day so special.

Perfect day, with no complaints!! A lovely venue if you want an outside wedding with a spectacular view! Only issue was our cake topper was too large for the top of our cake, so talk with them about the size of the cake you choose!

Our wedding was perfect in every detail at The Grandview. The setting, the food, and the professional staff were amazing. Everyone had a great time and said so for well after it was over. The staff made both of us feel so special and comfortable the entire day, right up to the moment we left. Not only did we stay the night at Grand Hotel they offered dockage in their Shadows Marina for our's and our guests boats also.
They have the complete package, and do it right. I can't list it all but all I can say is, very well done, to The Grandview.

If you ever dreamed of having your wedding underneath a tent, look to The Grandview for your dream to come true. The Outdoor Ballroom was the ideal spot to hold our Labor Day wedding. With other tented venues, we would have had to ordered tables, chairs, a dance floor, not to mention bring in outside catering and all that accompanies it - but The Grandview supplied all of that and more! Outdoor furniture, phenomenal food, and incredibly attentive staff - who were so well prepared for the rain that we were only left to think about how pretty it sounded on the roof of the tent.

Just in case you are worried about rain on our wedding day, I will tell you about our wedding day so you can stop worrying and still have a beautiful, worry-fee reception under a tent. The Grandview's Outdoor Ballroom is set up to withstand rain and storms, and their staff are trained to make you forget about the weather. As far art the tent goes, there is a metal track that goes around the edges of the tent when the sides are down. It stands up a few inches high to keep rain out. It's strong enough to stand up against wind. The walkway to the restroom is also covered. My friends who walked through here when it was raining told me that they loved what The Grandview staff did for guests - they put out a kind of stepping-stone and held guests' hands to escort you to them rest room! Our guests loved their attentive service! Even our family in wheelchairs didn't have an issue nor got wet.

Obviously, the rest of what the great reviews about the food are true! It's already three weeks later and we are still hearing about how amazing and plentiful the food was. My advice - don't miss your cocktail hour. You'll want to see this setup!

My family and I really felt like part of The Grandview family. We received such thorough and friendly service. We were so well taken care of by Margaret, Michael, and Kendra! Thank you so much for making it the best day of our lives thus far!

This venue is ON POINT!! We had our wedding in the tent in August 2013 and could not have asked for a more gorgeous day!! Not just because the weather was phenomenal, but because everything about the venue made it perfect. Everything from the service to the food and drinks were amazing! Our family and friends raved for weeks about our wedding and how we could not have chosen a better spot to celebrate. My husband and I recommend The Grandview to anyone looking in the area. You will be beyond pleased!!!

Killer. That's pretty much all you need to know. (8-)
We are continually hearing how blown away our guests were for our 8/16/13 wedding under the big top at the Grandview. Yes, the food is phenomenal. Yes, the view and grounds are beautiful. But what I keep thinking about is how attentive and sincerely supportive the staff was that day. You can't train that; it has to come from inside. I'm trying to figure out when we can host another event there. Too bad my 60th comes too soon to the wedding. Thank you, Grandview.

I'll preface my comments with the fact that I'm probably pickier than most people; so would not normally give 5 Stars. However, the Grandview did a terrific job from the first time we met with Lindsay, Sales Manager through the end of the Wedding Reception. The quality of the service, professionalism and the food were all amazing.
We received so many raves from family and friends about the entire wedding - from the beautiful tent that brings a bit of outdoors inside, staff that were so attentive (but not overbearing) and the food that was all so good. The Grandview definitely has it down pat how to cater a great event.

Perhaps what is best about the Grandview is that the venue, staff and food are all really elegant... without being at all pretentious. That's a tough one to pull off.

Much thanks to Lindsay, Victor and the rest of the staff for making our Wedding Reception so special; a day we will always cherish.

Our wedding was in the outdoor ballroom in July. It was hot but the staff did everything to keep everyone comfortable. Kendra and Victor were amazing to have on staff, they kept us on schedule and attended to any needs we had. The tent was so beautiful, everyone loved being on the river. I've known I've wanted to have our wedding here for years and it did not disappoint. Margaret worked with us on every single detail I had thought of plus her own. She was exceptional. It was beautiful, the staff was wonderful and extremely accommodating. Many of my guests told us how wonderful their waiters/servers were as well. It was flawless.

The Grandview was absolutely amazing for my July 4th, 2013 wedding. I had so many questions, did so much planning and brought so much decor into the gorgeous venue on the Hudson River. The staff was so accommodating, professional and did everything to make our wedding night perfect. There were only two things that I did not love...one is that I wish I had worked with one person the entire time during the planning process, but obviously there is turnover sometimes and I suppose I just fell into the time frame where there was quite a bit because I worked with/dealt with about 5 different people during my 1 1/2 year engagement/planning process so I wish they could improve on this. My other thing was that I did not like that there could be 2 weddings at once in the tent and the ballroom but I honestly did not notice the other wedding at all. We were in the ballroom and loved it (def do the ballroom if your a summer wedding since tent has no AC!).

But overall, I LOVED LOVED LOVED the Grandview. The night of was just magical. Our maitre'd Victor could not have been any better. I never once went to the bar, there were drinks just waiting for me, so thank you Victor and Paige, our waitress for doing the most amazing job. The whole night went so smoothly. Guests actually thought our cocktail hour was the dinner, because there was that much food in the standard package that they offer...we did no enhancements at all with the food/dessert and it was an overwhelming amount of delicious food. I just can't say enough wonderful things about the Grandview. I wish our wedding night lasted longer, it was just perfect and the best night of our lives. Thank you so much to Victor, Paige, Lindsay, Margaret and to all of the grandview staff for making our wedding night absolutely beautiful and perfect! We will highly recommend to all friends and family although I don't think we even have to as all family/friends are still raving about our wedding night!

Thank you to Brent and the staff for making my wedding so magical. From the time that we signed the contracts to the day of wedding everything went smoothly.

The venue was absolutely beautiful and the food was amazing! My guests still can't stop talking about the great time they had.

A few things I would recommend to a bride getting married there:

1) do the chocolate fountain but have them open the curtain at the same time as when the cake is served
2) add bows to the chairs
3) add one more station to the cocktail hour (it was well worth it)

The service was OUTSTANDING!

I would recommend this venue to anyone who is getting married in the near future.

Thank you Grandview for making my day exactly what I had I dreamed it would be!

My husband and I recently had our ceremony and reception at The Grandview. We could not be happier with our experience there. The wedding ran so smoothly and if there was anything that went wrong they didn't let us know about it. It felt like they had been rehearsing for our wedding for a year, that is how good they are at what they do. Our maître d, Victor, was wonderful and was always there with a drink or whatever we needed at the moment. They were great about directing us as to where we had to be and when. The ceremony space was beautiful and they decorated it exactly as I had asked and the reception space was even better. It really was a magical night and I would recommend The Grandview to anyone looking for a great experience!

There’s a reason this place has 5-star review after 5-star review! The Grandview is just gorgeous - It came highly recommended as one of the best in the Hudson Valley. Most importantly, Brent and his team are fantastic. The quality of service is so personal and thoughtful, and it really felt like our wedding was important to them and everyone was working to make the event as special and memorable as possible. We went with the viennese extravaganza for dessert and it completely knocked the whole day out of the park. Our guests were so thrilled with everything from top to bottom, and we just couldn’t be happier with our wedding venue.

Well, I am not even sure where to begin to describe how unbelievably amazing our wedding was! Not that I can say that I'm surprised, I know how incredibly hard all of the staff works to make every single wedding perfect. Everything from the linens, to the cake, to the food was absolutely spectacular. People are STILL raving about everything a week later - the phone calls are rolling in just as they were the day after the wedding.

Victor was our maitre d' and he was always so attentive to us both, making sure that we were fed and were having a good time. He was there from the minute that I arrived to the second I left making sure that everything went smoothly and that we were happy. He is just so great at what he does!

Lacey was our head server and incredible doesn't even begin to describe how amazing she was. She was my shadow for the day; anything that I wanted or needed, she was there before I even had to ask for a thing.

My parents had Paige as their server and are still talking about how fantastic she was! Every guest has told us that they had never seen service in the same caliber as we had at our wedding and that ours was the best wedding that they have ever been to! I can only take a little credit for that as the planning was done mostly by me, but without the incredible execution and the help of The Grandview during my planning process it would not have been as great as it was.

Thank you so much to everyone - to every waitstaff member, to Victor, Lacey, Angel and all of the set-up staff, Brent, Mike, Margaret, Lindsay, Courtney, Kasey and the pastry department, and all of the kitchen staff - for giving us a beautiful wedding that exceeded our dreams!

There are not enough stars to rate how absolutely AMAZING The Grandview was as our wedding venue!!!

From start to finish--the service was simply outstanding. The Grandview has absolutely perfected the process of hosting events, and we could not have been happier with our wedding day because of them. Planning our wedding alongside the staff at The Grandview was the most stress-free part of our planning process. We spent most of our planning working with Mike, and he was a pleasure to work with. Any time we called with a question or concern, it was handled immediately and always with a smile. I am a very detail-oriented person, and knew it would be a tall order to find a venue that could keep up. From the very start, Mike was able to put my mind at ease.

The day of the wedding, the entire staff was always two steps ahead of our every need and desire. Our entire bridal party and parents could not stop commenting on how amazing the service was, especially our Maitre' d --Victor. He was outstanding!!

We may be a little biased because it was our wedding, but both my husband and I have never heard so many compliments on a wedding until ours! The food was amazing, the service was outstanding, and the attention to detail was incredible. They really have thought of everything!

Our wedding day was an absolute dream come true thanks to The Grandview and its staff. We would recommend this as a venue to our friends without question (and we would love to get to go back and be guests to enjoy it all over again!).

I am beyond happy that we booked the Grandview for our wedding. Everything went absolutely perfect. We got married in the outdoor ballroom and it was so beautiful. Victor was our maitre d for the day and Kristen was our head waitress. Every time I came back to the table from the dance floor I had a new drink waitinf for me so it was fresh. We heard from all of our guests that they have never had such good service at a wedding before. We also are still getting compliments on how great the food was and how beautiful the venue was. They set up everything exactly as I had asked and it came out perfect. They even opened up early so that I could get ready in the bridal suite, since the makeup artist wanted to start at 8:30. I cannot say enough great things about this place.

Beautiful location, amazing food and cocktails, and impeccable service! Our event manager Brent was such a pleasure to work with. He met with my family on several occasions to answer questions and discuss details of the event. We had a fusion Hindu-Christian wedding, and he was so patient and accommodating to our many requests. The staff was very attentive to the guests and the members of the bridal party. There was always someone checking in on me to make sure I did not go hungry or did not have an empty glass in hand! The food was abundant and delicious, and they had an incredible dessert display created for us. Despite the bad weather, the event turned out to be beautiful. We received several compliments on our wedding, and many of our guests said it was the best wedding they had ever attended.

We can't thank the Grandview enough for making our wedding a beautiful, fun, and perfect day! The wait staff and management are easy to work with, professional and always there to help you out! They just make it super easy for the bride and groom to plan and enjoy themselves! We got married on the outside terrace overlooking the Hudson. Breathtaking views! The floor to ceiling windows brings lots of light and pretty views to the inside cocktail hour space and reception hall. The food was delicious and there was lots of it! We couldn't of been happier with our choice! Thank you!

The Grandview made our wedding day a dream come true. From the planning to the execution it all went fabulous. The food was amazing, the service was above and beyond. Our maitre d' Victor and head server Vanessa really made our day go very smoothly. Several of our guests told us that this was one of the best weddings that they had ever attended. We had an outdoor ceremony that was so beautiful and really added to our amazing day. The value for your money at The Grandview is above and beyond, I do not think we could have picked a better place for our once in a lifetime experience. The Grandview made sure to accommodate us with a couple of special requests which meant a lot to us. Without a doubt we whole heartily recommend The Grandview for your wedding.

We signed the Grandview to host our wedding for several reasons and they came through on all of them. They gave us the best value for our dollar and they gave my husband and I peace of mind that they would do everything in their power to make our event a stress free success. The day of their service was excellent, many of my guests felt compelled to tip their waiters because they did such a great job, I didn't hear one complaint about the food and one of my guests said it was the best wedding he had been to all year! He had already attended three others, one of them being in Italy, if that isn't a compliment I don't know what is. What was most valuable to me the bride came from my maitree'd the day of. It was set up to have my ceremony on the back patio and sure enough it was a cloudy day with on and off showers. It meant a lot to me to have my ceremony outside and they allowed me to make that final decision as to where the ceremony would be held. They armed me with weather facts and alternate plans, should it down pour during our "I do's" or lightning. I made the call to have it outside as I had envisioned all along and it went perfect! Thank you Grandview for allowing me to have my picture perfect wedding day, my husband and I couldn't have asked for more.

The Grandview was AMAZING! If I could have rated them higher than 5 stars I would have. We planned our wedding in a short amount of time - 6 months from engagement to wedding. We looked at a few places and went with the Grandview as an easy decision. Not only was the venue gorgeous, but the professionalism of the staff was readily apparent from the very beginning. They answered any and all questions we had, informed us of things before we could even ask sometimes, were very organized, and made us feel special even though they do an incredible amount of weddings. We also planned the wedding (with the exception of scoping out venues) from over a long distance... we live in Virginia. Knowing that I had a venue that was on top of everything, that I didn't have to nit-pick and that I knew would handle everything was absolutely priceless. Nicole responded to all of emails in a very prompt manner and was always polite, professional, and helpful.
Then the wedding day came and I was blown away again - as were all of my guests! Each table had their own waiter, which surprised most people, in a good way. The food was out of this world, and the cake - OMG the cake was fabulous! The ceremony and rehearsal were well-organized and came out beautifully, and the reception was just wonderful. My mom's friend (who tends to be critical) was so impressed by the entire event and told my mom that she thought we must have spent over $200 per person, which we definitely didn't! We had a Sunday afternoon wedding in the outdoor ballroom which, including the ceremony, was about $100 per person (before taxes and gratiutity). Amazing value for such an incredible experience. My sister said she might "steal" my venue when she gets married in the future too - everyone just loved it so much. I am so grateful to Grandview for everything they did to make the day worry-free and fantastic!

I have nothing but praise for The Grandview! I'll just list out all of the great things about this venue: Service - all staff members must go through intensive training because I have never experienced service like this. Anything you want or need they can accomodate for you. Examples - during our tasting they had a Viennese hour with desserts, liquors, cappuccino etc. A waiter came up and asked if he could get me anything and I explained that I wasn't drinking and I didn't drink coffee. He asked what I'd like and I said I'd really like a hot chocolate. Five minutes later he returned with hot chocolate. He had left the building and gone next door to get it. At our wedding, my guests couldn't stop talking about how attentive the servers were (one per table) and how there glasses were always full. They even have a to-go station for guests as they leave with coffee, water, and cookies. The head waiter who was assigned to me for the night was always by my side when I needed her and even offered to bring me a private fan for underneath our head table. My mom wanted organic strawberries and asked for a particular wine that she's not allergic too, these request were accommodated with no additional charge. These are only a few examples, I could go on and on. The Grandview is great value for your money. We looked at many places, and the Grandview stood out. Food - Oh my goodness, the amount of food that comes standard with your package is unbelievable. During cocktail hour we had four stations plus 8 passed h'ordeuvres and a signature drink, plus open bar. Then for dinner it's a five course meal. Your wedding cake also comes with the package. You can choose from their selection or bring a picture and they will make what you want. The food was great! The cake was amazing! Not only in taste but it was beautiful as well. Location - hop on the Metro North and it stops 2 minutes away from the Grandview. We got married outside and had our reception under their tent with a view of the Hudson River and the Mid Hudson Bridge. All of our guests were taking picture of the view alone. It was so picturesque. I worked with Nicole G, and Jenna was my head waiter, but I'm sure that everyone is of the same quality. Each time I called, if Nicole was unavailable, someone else was able to answer my questions. The Grandview truly took care of my whole wedding party and guests. There is not one thing I would have changed about the experience or my wedding day. Guests are still talking about it 3 weeks later and I'm ready to repeat the whole day!

The Grandview space is gorgous, the day goes by so quickly take the time to do your pictures before your ceremony and reception. Take the few minutes to eat dinner, I was told the food was out of this world, best wedding food and best desserts EVER!!!! Before I walked into my event space I had never seen the Grandview set up, not knowing what was included in pictures or from othe Brides/Weddings. Be prepaired to be blown away, their attention to detail and professionalism surpassed my expectations 100X and I am a wedding photographer. The Station Dinner was a super success from everyone who was worried it would seem Buffet-y, it was not at all. it was very elegant and spacious and everyone got a bit of everything. I can't wait to have another event there. ENJOY!!!! and best wishes to you all

Our wedding this past August at The Grandview was really, beyond words. Not only my husband and I but all of our guests were incredibly impressed with every detail handled by the staff. We knew we wanted to get married and have our reception here as soon as we got engaged. We had heard nothing but positive feedback about the venue. When we actually began panning and coming closer to the date, I knew why this is considered one of the best places to have your wedding in the Hudson Valley. Sarah and the rest of the staff were so helpful and always positive. Nothing ever felt pushed on us and all of our needs were met in a timely, professional way. Our original ceremony was supposed to occur outside, however a gigantic downpour occurred about a half an hour before the ceremony was to take place. The staff (who I have heard dubbed the C.I.A. of weddings) swiftly transformed the ballroom into a beautiful place to have a ceremony. I cannot thank The Grandview enough for creating a magical, perfect night for us.

We had our wedding reception at the Grandview on 8/13/11 and it could not have been more perfect!!! The service was amazing--and the food was the best we have ever had at any wedding. We have not stopped getting compliments from all of our guests. The venue is so beautiful as well-you can't beat views of the Hudson River and the Bridge. It was above and beyond what we could ever have dreamed of for our wedding day. Thank you!!!!

I cannot begin to describe the incredible experience we had working with The Grandview. Although this venue was over an hour away from my hometown, once we toured it, we couldn't NOT book there. From start to finish, they handled everything. Any special requests or questions I had were answered in a very timely fashion. I began to suspect that anything I wanted, they could do! We attended a tasting, which was wonderful as well.

I thought things were wonderful before the wedding, but I was blown away by the service. My now-husband and I had our own personal server who took care of us and got us anything we wanted! She even bustled my train when my bridal party was out enjoying cocktail hour. When my train broke multiple times, they fixed it.

Our guests are raving about the gorgeous scenery, food and service. Many have never been to a wedding that was so spectacular! The Viennese Hour was the icing on the cake!

We keep saying that we hope someone we know gets married there so we can go again! I could go on and on, but it was truly wonderful from start to finish.

My daughter had her wedding on August 6, 2011 in the ballroom. We cannot say enough wonderful things about the Grandview! Brent, Nicole, and Stephanie were so helpful and kind-the whole staff was friendly and efficient. The food was awesome and the Viennese table was out of this world. Our friends and family who have seen other Viennese tables say this was by far the best ever. The Penn State ice sculpture was the perfect touch!If we had another daughter, we would have another Grandview wedding, for sure! And you can't beat the view of the Hudson- we had rain but it was still gorgeous. Highly recommend The Grandview!

This venue is ABSOLUTELY AMAZING. We chose it because of the view and the proximity it was to our former college. Marist College is a mile away, and shares the same amazing view of the Hudson River and the Mid-Hudson Bridge. The sun sets over the water, there are panoramic views of the hudson, the orange light pours into the ballrooms - its looked breathtaking, and was a unique location so we booked the outside ballroom.

What we had been slightly concerned about afterwards is that neither of us had ever been to a wedding there, so how could we know if the food, the service, etc would be up to our expectations?
I know now that I had NOTHING to worry about. The evening was perfect - the Maitre d', Victor, was by my side when I had a question, but not in the way at all - he would appear when I needed him, and then fall into the background when he was done. He explained how everything from the timing of the bridesmaid walking down the aisle, to the cake cutting would work. He was friendly and took care of everything I needed, quickly and efficiently.
The FOOD WAS AMAZING! It was literally some of the best food I have ever eaten ANYWHERE, let alone at a wedding. The cocktail hour had more food than I ever imagined, and included unique dishes you could choose - I choose the mac + cheese mini-plates, gorgonzola and grilled pear, and panini station, to name a few, and each were DELICIOUS and had my guests raving!
Dinner had 4 courses, including intermezzo (lemon + raspberry sherbet to cleanse your palate) and each was more delicious than the last. My uncle, who loves steak and eats it frequently, stated that it was one of the best steaks he has ever eaten.
Signature cocktails were included and passed around all night, I was able to design my own cake and they created it perfectly, and as we left the reception, they had set up a "To-Go Bar" with coffee, cappuccino, bottles of water and biscotti you could take as you were leaving.

There was also 1 server PER TABLE, ensuring that everyone is taken care of at all times. If you drop your fork, before you can bend down and pick it up, the server is placing a clean on beside your plate. If you drink is 1/4 full, they ask if you want another drink from the bar, and have it delivered to your table. I have never been to a wedding with service like this. Amazing. People are still complementing me 4 weeks later.

In addition to this, I was out of state planning the wedding (I live in Connecticut, and the Grandview is in upstate New York). I called frequently with questions, and every person I talked to had the answers I needed or would find the answer out for me, quickly and with ease. Even when I would email Nicole, my wedding coordinator at The Grandview, with change in plans or menu a week before the wedding, she would get back to me promptly and pleasantly, assuring me that it was taken care of and that I did not have to worry about a thing.

Everyone single person I encountered at The Grandview - from one year before my wedding, until we were leaving the reception the night of - was friendly, accommodating and professional. We literally had NOTHING to worry about, and that gave us time to enjoy our beautiful wedding day and our guests.

If you want a stress-free reception/ceremony site that wows your guests and has breath taking views, delicious food, amazing service, and is worth every penny, than The Grandview is where you want your wedding!

Excellent venue for your money. My now husband and I had such a relaxing year of planning thanks to all the services the Grandview provided. Our guests raved about the food and were looking for more! The cake was exceptional and the pastry chef executed my design perfectly. They even called me to check what kind of gardenia flower I preferred. We received our top layer to save,but it was so good we ate it the next day and shaered it with our co-workers! We will just order another cake from them for our 1 year anniversary. The maitre d and head server made sure no guest including myself had an empty or near empty drink in their hand. They were both very professional and extremely nice people. The trolley, sunset views over the hudson are also added perks. Definitely choose the outdoor space if you are looking here for a summer wedding- you will not regret it. It really was an elegant event.

We couldn't have asked for anything more.

My husband and I got married Oct. 10th at the Grandview. Everything was perfect !!!!

The view, the facility, the food, the service and the attention to detail were remarkable. Our guest are still raving about the quality of the food and the service. The waitstaff actually were referring to the our guests by name and it made them very comfortable.

Our day of coordinator, Nicole was amazing. She made sure everything went perfectly. If their was something my husband and I didnt even know about it.

The dessert table was one of the most amazing things I have ever seen, it literally took my breath away. Our guest stayed longer just to enjoy it. The warm apple cider donuts were my favorite addition.

We can't thank all who were involved enough for making our day what it was.

The Grandview helped to make our wedding day unforgettable!! From the moment we booked with them, we knew that there was something special about this place. We booked the outdoor ballroom which was absolutely beautiful. Throughout the planning process the staff at the Grandview went above and beyond to accommodate any requests we had, from special liquors and drinks to a monogram on the menu, nothing was overlooked.

On the big day, the staff at the Grandview was wonderful. We had waitress that just attended to my husband and I and we were treated like royalty throughout the day. The food is flat out AMAZING!! The cocktail stations, passed hour dorves, entrees, cake, everything was so tasty and we got so many compliments on the food and service. No one ever had an empty cup or plate. They even set up a surprise for the groom's cake I had them make for my husband.

I highly, highly recommend the Grandview. Not only do you get exceptional service and great food, but you get it all at a great price with an awesome view. Thank you to your entire team for making our day so memorable.

Two quick notes: they do not serve shots (this caused a brief irritation with my husband) and supposedly they ID for drinks. They told us repeatedly at meetings to make sure the bridal party and guests brought their ID, but they never ID'd...nothing major just something to be aware of.

I highly, highly recommend the Grandview. Not only do you get exceptional service and great food, but you get it all at a great price with an awesome view. Thank you to your entire team for making our day so memorable.

Two quick notes: they do not serve shots (this caused a brief irritation with my husband) and supposedly they ID for drinks. They told us repeatedly at meetings to make sure the bridal party and guests brought their ID, but they never ID'd...nothing major just something to be aware of. Read less

We had our wedding reception in the Grand Ballroom of The Grandview. Everything was PERFECT. The food was amazing, waitors were attentive, venue was spotless, and the grounds were immaculate. The staff at The Grandview was so accomodating throughout the entire wedding planning experience. The wedding coordinators were very thorough and attentive and I knew my wedding was in good hands.

My wife and I are professional photographers in the Hudson Valley, we own Owl's Eye Studios, so we work a lot of venues in the area and deal with a lot of people...when it came time to get married, we had shot at The Grandview once or twice before and we knew it was an amazing place...I have to say shooting at the Grandview is awesome, but being a bride & groom is even more amazing. They went out of their way to ensure our day was flawless. No matter who you work with there, the staff is beyond friendly, attentive and actually cares about your event and treats it as if it were one of their own. As a professional in the industry, I can tell you, you will not get a better value or a nicer place than the Grandview, absolutely amazing!

The Grandview made everything so easy. I work overnight which made me decide to use a catering facility where everything was included. From the tasting to being able to drop off some of our own decorations, and giving them instructions on how to set things up. The cake was wonderful, it was a lemon pound cake with white chocolate mousse between the layers and sliced strawberries. They even changed their normal buttercream icing for me to a thicker icing that I preferred. The dinners were amazing and so was all of the cocktail food. Our guests were raving about how it was the best wedding they ever attended. The weather was gorgeous so everyone enjoyed the outdoor balcony and views of the river, and the ballroom is wonderful as well. It is seriously the perfect venue. We also had a coordinator who I swear followed me around all day because she pullled my seat out for me everytime I went to sit down. And she would go find my parents for me, the photographer etc. You seriously have no worries all day if you have your event there.

Everything about our experience with the Grandview was fanatastic. Maragret was our coordinator and she was so helpful, courteous, geniune, and attentive to us from beginning to end. The value for the money is like no other venue in the area. We got valet parking, wedding cake, 4 entree choices, open bar, a to go beverage station, one server per table, and much much more all in the included price. We've been hearing for weeks now from all guests about how great the food and service was. Many have said it was the best wedding they've been too, and we know the Grandview is a huge part of that. If given the chance I'd recommend anyone to book here.

I give my highest reccomendation of The Grandview. I knew from the start that I wanted my wedding reception there, but I honestly didn't expect how amazing it actually was. Our reception was in the ballroom, and the room looked like something straight out of a fairytale. The lighting, the tables, and the decor was all perfect. I cannot say enough about the service. Brent was so helpful in helping us plan everything the way we wanted, and everything was set up perfectly. The Grandview does do many weddings, but the level of personal service is not compromised at all. The staff was all so professional and helpful. A great many of my guests mentioned the level of service at their particular tables. Our maitre de' was also exceptional. I barely had to ask for anything before he had already anticipated. He really helped orchestrate the evening beautifully. My favorite aspect of the Grandview besides the amazing service and staff was the food. I wanted to make sure that we didn't have "wedding food" at our wedding, and we were not disappointed. The Grandview allows one complimentary tasting, and we were able to try a lot of the food we picked. The cocktail hour is such a feast. We got so many comments on how much food there was! The main courses are amazing and so delicious, everyone was raving about how good the food was. Even my husband and I took time out to finish everything. One guest told us she felt spoiled by how good the food was. Another thing everyone mentioned was the cake, because it was just so beautifully made as well as presented. There are so many little extras that make a big difference at The Grandview, such as the "to-go" station with coffe, water, and cookies. I honestly can't say one bad thing about The Grandview. They played a huge role in making our day absolutely perfect.

The Grandview is a total package. When you book with them you know you will have a great day no matter what. The amount of food that is included is incredible, people thought the cocktail hour was enough food for the night! They really make sure that you are taken care of the entire night. My dress bustle kept coming undone so but they had safety pins on hand to help pin it up, my champagne glass was never empty and we never got a chance to even sit for dinner (too much dancing) so they had it boxed up and sent home with us! Again, they really go above and beyond for you to really make your day as special as possible.

Overall it was an amazing place, i loved the venue and got a ton of compliments!

Our wedding was on September 4th 2010. Everything was wonderful!! Our guests LOVED the food and location. Everyone has been telling us how much they enjoyed the wedding.

The amount of food and quality of food you get for the money is definitely worth it. The matra d I had for the day was very attentative and always asking if there was anything i needed. Everyone at the Grandview was always willing to answer any questions I had throughout my whole planning process. Everything was arranged beautifully.

A nice addition was the 5 complementary guest room and honeymoon suite.

The only thing that went wrong was the week before we went over our final contract and noticed that the time of ceremony was not changed from 11:30am to 11:15am. So our coordinator told us to place in the correct time and initial it, which we did. The day of the wedding the coordinator was not letting the guests in as they arrived. Everyone was waiting in the lobby for about 20 minutes and were not let in until around 11:30am. This caused a problem because the musicians were playing where the ceremony was for 15 minutes, but no guests were showing up because they were all waiting in the lobby.

My recommendation is to make a check list for yourself and to give a copy to your coordinator, for what you are going to go over the day before the wedding (or whenever you are going over your final details). There were a few other very minor details that were left out, but I think I was the only one that noticed (I hope).

Overall my husband and I were very happy with The Grandview.

We had our wedding in the outdoor ballroom for one reason - it is simply the most beautiful view in the area! We live in CT but happened to stumble across the Grandview and it was the perfect location! All of my guests loved the food and view. I heard after the event that many guests were so blown away by the service and quality of care they received, they tipped on top of our tip because they had to show their appreciation. And this goes for the food and bar staff. We had worked with Mike up until the day of the wedding, when we learned that instead of Mike, Victor would be our maitre'd. I was leary as all correspondence had been with Mike, but I couldn't be happier with the service provided by Victor! And my head server was Paige. She was PERFECT. I couldn't have gotten through the night without her! She was there to help me clean my shoes, grab us drinks, help me with my dress, and bring us food in between photos!
Overall - great location with great food.

The Grandview was amazing!! I would definately recommend having a wedding reception there! It was well worth the money not to mention 5free rooms at Poughkeepsie Grand Hotel and honeymoon suite.The food is really really good and you get alot of it. Our guests really enjoyed the food-they thought cocktail hour was great food but then for dinner they were blown away!The view of the Poughkeepsie bridge at night was a sight to see. The staff at the Grandview treat you like such a Princess..anything you want they give to you! If you wanted a bacon egg n cheese sandwich Im sure they would make it for you! They are very attentive and very friendly. I wish i could do it again! Trully unforgetable! Thanks Grandview!

No complaints... nothing but compliments from every guest Youg and Old.

4.7/5.0
The Grandview was the PERFECT venue for our wedding reception in September of '09. People are still raving to me about our reception and I have the feeling the praise will keep coming for years! The river view is breathtaking. The food was amazing. The service was excellent (thanks to JD, our Maitre d'). Our custom wedding cake was beautiful and tasted delish! From the cocktail hour to the cake cutting, The Grandview handled every aspect of our wedding in grand style. These people really know what they're doing. If you want the best in the New York/Hudson Valley area, The Grandview is the place for you. The only reason I rated them a 3.5 for Flexibility is that they have their standard wedding package and there really isn't much room for wiggle or substitutions. Our custom cake ended up being an additional $250. Black linens for the tables were an additional cost, etc. You get one free tasting event as a bride and groom and if you wanted to attend additional tastings, you had to pay an additional $60 pp. When you're spending close to $30,000 at a catering facility for your event, you should be able to attend multiple tastings for free. Overall though, with everything that is included in your wedding package (including 5 free rooms at the Poughkeepsie Grand for the night of the wedding and a complimentary shuttle back and forth between the hotel and The Grandview for the duration of the reception), you really are getting a great deal for your money. I would recommend this place hands-down to anyone!

The Grandview is in my opinion the best wedding venue in the Poughkeepsie area. It had a fresh, modern feel, a beautiful setting and view of the Hudson and Mid-Hudson Bridge, the food is excellent, and the staff are very accomodating.
Of course, all of this comes at a price. Although the Grandview is still a little expensive than say, reception halls in North Shore Long Island, it's not cheap. Still, the package that you get for your money is worth it. Our wedding was truly wonderful and we were more than impressed by the all-around quality and service of the Grandview (as were our guests, most from NYC/Long Island, who weren't expecting much from an upstate venue).

We were so pleased to have had our wedding at the Grandview in Poughkeepsie. Everything from soup to nuts was amazing. They provide transportation for guests that stay at the Grand Hotel in Poughkeepsie all night from venue to hotel. Prices and food options were really "set in stone" we could not get them to budge on anything in that way, but the food that they served was phenominal! Liquor was top shelf, just make sure that all guests bring I.D. They check. Overall, our experience was wonderful and would recommend this venue to anyone!

I paid for an additional filling for the wedding cake, which was delicious.
However, the size of the slice was unbelievable- it was PAPER THIN. No one could believe that cake could be sliced so finely. It was a definite negative and an embarrassment to us. It marred an otherwise lovely event. There was nothing that I could do at that time to counteract those slices..... What a way to end a wedding.....
Another major annoyance: at the cocktail hour I had paid an additional charge to serve a roasted leg of lamb at the carving station. Yet, when I approached this station, the lamb was nowhere to be found. You had to ASK for it- and, that was only if you KNEW it was available. Not a good move on the server's/Grandview's part.

The event was absolutely fabulous. As the first granddaughter in my family to get married, I was told that I set the bar very high. The food (and the amount of food) was phenomenal, no one left hungry! Our maitre de and bridal attendant kept the flow of the night perfect and were a complete blessing. We had the ceremony on the patio outside of the Grand Ballroom and the staff was very flexible in how I wanted everything set up. An upgrade we chose was the Smores bar which was a hit hit with the guests, fun, and original. The wedding cake provided by the Grandview was delicious and included! We couldn't have chosen a better location!

The Grandview was a wonderful venue for our big day. They made the planning process super easy and our planner, Sarah, was always available or quick to respond to our questions and concerns. They are able to do a surprising amount of customization for your wedding day. My only complaint about the planning process is probably very unique to us; Sarah left the Grandview within a week of my wedding day. We had our final planning meeting one week before (I got a weird feeling something was up) but then on our wedding day I was told she no longer worked there and another planner would be working with us. Our new planner was great, I just wish the General Manager had been the one speak to us about this major change!
No other venue in the area compares to the Grandview when it comes to its beauty, great food and outstanding service. It’s a gorgeous venue, providing remarkable backdrops for all your photos. The food was amazing and our guests are still raving about it. The best part of the day was the service – the bartenders and servers go above and beyond to make everyone of your guests happy. There is one server assigned just to the couple and in our case that was Lacey. Lacey was one of the highlights of our day, making sure we had everything we needed, keeping our food warm while we were taking pictures and doing so many little things I probably don’t even know about them all.
The only negative part of our wedding day was the Maître d’ Scott. Prior to the ceremony that we had on that patio adjacent to the tent, he did nothing to direct guests to where they needed to go. Not only that, he was extremely rude to my mother when she asked for his assistance in helping escort my elderly uncle who uses a wheelchair. Then when cocktail hour ended and the reception began, he told the DJ to wait 30 minutes before doing introductions so the dinner orders could be taken. This was not how I wanted and thankfully my DJ double checked with me and did the introductions anyway. Fort
