The Loading Dock made all of our dreams come true, when we got married a little over a month ago!!!!
I have been in the wedding business for over 15 years and have seen everything in Westchester County and the surrounding areas. I wanted a unique venue for my guests to get excited about & create a wedding experience they would not forget. I knew The Loading Dock was the perfect place from the moment I got engaged!!!! Abigail Kirsh is the top caterer in the area and creates the most unique, fun presentations with their menus using the highest quality of food! It is like eating at a 5 Star restaurant at your wedding. My guests complimented the amazing food along with the incredible staff. I feel there is no better complement!
Nancy Isa and Frank Carlisi were amazing!!!!!!!! I told them that I know I am not an easy person to make happy and they exceeded all of my expectations! They took care of every detail, were always helpful, had great suggestions, and most importantly were fun & easy to work with, making for an enjoyable wedding planning process.
I am forever grateful to the staff at The Loading Dock and you will be too!!! There is no better venue!!!!!!!

Pick this venue! I got married here recently and only have RAVE reviews to offer. The space is unique, malleable, and overall picturesque. I'm not a bride that is a fan of tapestries, carpeting, and all the cliche elements of weddings past. I've seen a million weddings, both as a wedding photographer and guest, and I wanted something fresh for my own wedding. The Loading Dock was a success. However, while all this is true, this venue IS Nancy Isa, the General Manager, and Frank Carlisi, The Sales and Events Manager. I am a meticulous and details-oriented person and it felt wonderful to "give it up" on my wedding day, knowing Nancy and Frank were in charge. During a special event, wedding, mitzvah, or otherwise, you want to know that you're going to pick a place and create an event that is worthy of the occasion. Nancy and Frank are people that make that wish a reality. Choosing the Loading Dock, with these people in charge, is choosing a respite from the complications of event planning and choosing a memory to be proud of.

I wish I could give The Loading Dock 10 stars! From the moment I walked in to view the location I knew that it was were I was going to get married!! It was so unique, fresh and modern. I loved the blank canvas that allowed us to create what we envisioned our wedding to be. The staff was amazing, the service during the reception was impeccable and the food was SUPERB!!! The Loading Dock is on the more expensive end of weddings, but you will not be disappointed and at the end of the day it is worth every penny and more. Our wedding was more that we could have ever imagined!

My wife and I were married at the Loading Dock in September of 2014 and we can't say enough about it! From the day we walked in, we knew it was the spot for us!

The venue has a very modern, contemporary and raw feel, which we absolutely loved. When we met the people behind the venue, we were sold! They were very professional and courteous but extraordinarily friendly at the same time.

We were looking for a venue that would provide "food all night" as opposed to a proper sit-down dinner and the Loading Dock's "Phases" menu did just that. The planning process was a breeze with the Loading Dock Team, including Jayme, Nancy, and Lorraine and all of the day-of details were taken care of before we could even ask about them!

They were very thoughtful and thorough. We took our wedding pictures outside of the venue and there were even dedicated waiters and waitresses to bring us appetizers and cocktails so that we wouldn't miss the food at cocktail hour. In addition, there was at least one waiter/waitress per guest table and the bartenders were tremendous as well, never letting anyone go without a full glass. The service was absolutely impeccable and I would compare it to a four-star dining experience.

With that in mind, the food was truly next-level. Not only was it inventive, inspired and out of the ordinary, but there really was something for everyone. From the Margarita served frozen in a Blood Orange peel to the Short-Rib Pie in a Jar, the presentation was gorgeous and the food tasted even better than it looked. Several guests remarked that their steak was some of the best they'd ever had and more than a few asked if the Loading Dock was open for dinner regularly.

All in all, we'd absolutely recommend the Loading Dock for a wedding (and even other events). The food was great, the decor was on point, and I can't say enough about it!
