The Palace is beautiful from the moment you drive up to the venue. We knew instantly that we wanted to have our wedding at The Palace and are very excited for our wedding day! The staff is very attentive and responds quickly to any questions. They also provide a planner who will help with any questions you may have and also helps you set up all the specifics of the wedding day! I cannot wait for our wedding in March so I can write another review about how fabulous this venue is!

I cannot say enough good things about the Palace! Everyone was absolutely amazing throughout the entire process and truly went above and beyond. The venue itself is beautiful and the food is INCREDIBLE. Almost every person I talked to at my wedding said something about how delicious the food was and how much there was. The Palace really goes above and beyond with quality of both service and product. Josh, our Maitre D, is incredible. He went through a detailed schedule for the day of the wedding at our final meeting three days before. He made sure my husband and I were comfortable with the timing and that we knew how and when everything would happen on our wedding day. He wore many hats for our wedding: bartender, bridal party herder, bouncer, bag-holder, and many more. He did his job well because if there were any problems I still don’t know about them! The whole day came together seamlessly and as far as my husband and I know everything was executed perfectly. He literally could not have been more attentive or accommodating and played a huge role in the perfect wedding that my husband and I had; we couldn’t be more grateful.
Maya, my bridal attendant, is the most amazing attendant that there could ever be on this planet. She knew what I needed or wanted even before I knew myself! My wedding day was so low stress because she just anticipated everything before it even happened. She is so sweet and helpful and I could not be more thankful that I had her right behind me for most of my day (mostly without me even realizing!), and she even helped me get dressed. For every single picture she was there fluffing my dress and smoothing my train while also holding my drink or bouquet and making sure the bridal party was in the right place. I am still in awe and don’t understand how she had enough hands to do everything she was doing simultaneously. She made it so I didn’t have to think about anything and could just enjoy the day with my husband and for that

I am so so happy we chose The Palace as our reception! From the moment we walked in there for the first time til the moment we were married was just simply amazing. I can't even describe how helpful and amazing the staff and service was. First and foremost our wedding planner Alex was truly on top of it all when it came to organizing our wedding. She answered every email and met with us to review everything. She even helped design our wedding cake which was just exactly what we wanted! She has a very true talent and we couldn't thank her enough! David our Matre D - words can't even describe how awesome he was that day! He went above and beyond our expectations. He made sure everything was in tack and did not let anything go unnoticed. He really was just so pleasant and a pleasure to work with. Stephanie was my bridal assistant - she was so helpful in helping me with my dress and veil, everything! The Palace is truly a place for a fairy tale wedding. The food was amazing - our guests couldn't stop raving about how the food was and how much food there was!!! The Palace gets more then 10 stars on our list!! =)

My husband Ron and I got married at The Palace a month ago today. We had the most amazing wedding and it is all thanks to their amazing team and staff. From the minute we walked into The Palace we knew we wanted to have our wedding there. Melanie, Michelle, Richard, Latonja and the amazing wait staff made our night absolutely magical. Michelle put up with my non-stop emails and phone calls filled with day of questions. Richard walked us through our entire event and didn't miss a beat. Latonja, was my bridal attendant for the night and treated me like a princess. I cant thank The Palace enough for going above and beyond for our day. We have had so many compliments on the food, the service, the venue etc. It was absolutely worth every penny. Thank you The Palace at Somerset Park for making our wedding day the best day of our lives. We recommend them to anyone who wants a stress free wedding day with amazing food and even better service.

Our June wedding at the Palace was one word, AMAZING. The Palace was actually the first and only place we looked at for our reception venue and I still believe I would have been wasting my time looking anywhere else. The Palace had everything we wanted and we received so much for our money. We originally met with Jose Russa who walked us through the packages and was a pleasure to work with. Alex, our coordinator was so awesome and quick to respond to any email/phone call we sent. She was so helpful in getting all of the little details together and she made any request we had possible. Night of our wedding was completely flawless. Our Maitre D David made sure everything ran on time and in a smooth manner. Our guests were floored at the level of attentiveness and service everyone at the Palace exhibited. My bridal attendant Latonya was also awesome in making sure my husband and I had everything we needed and that we were always doing OK. We have received nothing but rave reviews about the venue, the service and especially the food. Every piece of food we tried was just incredible, the cocktail hour was amazing and the dinners are still being raved about by our guests. If you are looking for incredible level of service, professionalism and attention to detail, the Palace is the place!!

When we first looked at the reviews and photos here at Wedding Wire, we knew this is the place we are having our wedding. We held the ceremony and reception here. The palace is huge; it has 2 ballroom West and East. We had 125 guests and our party was held at the West ballroom (smaller ballroom of two). Even though it’s a smaller ballroom, it was still huge and guest loved the space.
The Palace had everything and worth it.
Customer Service: These guys are great and we give them a lot of praise for what they did. Christie was our sales manager, she was wonderful. Alex was our event planner, and she made sure we had everything in place. We worked with Alex a lot prior to the big day. We sent her so many emails and she was very responsive and honest. She provided us great input on what kind of flowers will work during the wedding. To our Maitre’d Josh and bridal attendant Stephany, these two was with us the whole entire day of the wedding. They never left our side, they made sure we are taken good care of, they made sure we ate, they made sure we drank, and made sure we felt home and comfortable. We are VERY THANKFUL we had these two, and if we had to pick out a Maitre’d and Bridal attendant, we’ll choose these two.
Food: To the chefs and cooks at the Palace, you guys cooked us an amazing food and THANK YOU for allowing us to bring some goodie bags! Everything you guys did at the cocktail hour was fantastic, the baja fish taco and the succulent pig was a hit. We were lucky enough to try the entire main course: Crab Cake, Gnocchi, Chicken Breast, Sirloin Steak, and Grouper were tasty. We would come back again just for the crab cake and macadamia nut grouper. For the cake and dessert, the cake looked AMAZING and the rest of the pastries were very good. Thank you for the pastry chef who made the cake look like the picture we sent you and making sure the flowers looked AMAZING rather than a cake with a flower toupee on top of it.
THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!!!

I’m not sure I can find enough words to say how fabulous The Palace is, but I’m going to try.

We had our wedding there on May 16, 2015. It was nothing short of perfection. We didn’t have one single problem with the entire process. We booked with Melanie, who was fabulous. After booking, our planner, Alexandra, was incredible. She responded to Emails extremely quickly with the highest professionalism and knew every detail and answer for every question I asked. They were extremely flexible in filling requests we had to switch out certain menu items- we got exactly what we wanted. And the food was fantastic. That is an understatement. The cocktail hour was the best cocktail hour I ever had at a wedding. The chef, Justin, did whatever he could to make sure everyone had the best meal ever.

On the day of the wedding, our Maître D, Richard was a dream. I could go on and on forever about him, but I’ll just simply say that he did his job above and beyond my expectations. He even knew the up to date weather so he knew exactly when we could go outside without rain! Our bridal attendant was also perfection. I didn't want for anything that night!

We also got the fireworks package. Also worth every penny. We heard several times from several different guests that they were better than the Fourth of July. It’s a memory we’ll have forever.

Yes, the Palace is pricey, but it is worth every penny if you can swing it. You won’t be disappointed. I wish we could get married every month just to do this all over again.

The Palace – Listen to me clearly…..THE PALACE IS THE BEST PLACE TO HAVE YOUR WEDDING……PERIOD! Yes, it’s a bit pricey, yes there is minimal (if any) wiggle room….BUT….if you are looking for a place that will take your mind off of worrying about ANYTHING concerning the reception….The Palace is that place.

Scale 1-10

Cocktail Hour – 12 (yes, I said 12)
Food – 10
Lighting – 10
Décor – 10
Venetian Hour (Dessert for all who are wondering) - 11!
Staff - 10


The only issue (my wife) had with the Palace was that her table cards (which were actually picture frames) were laying down on the table as oppose to standing up….literally that was the only complaint! For all of you guys, that’s a blessing if that is the ONLY complaint you get the day of..(at least for the reception…haha).

I could not have asked for a better venue! We had our ceremony outside on their balcony, and reception indoors. The staff is amazing! I had a bridal attendant who stayed with my the entire night and she was great. She helped me go to the bathroom, brought me drinks, always made sure I was okay. Our Maitre 'D was great! He took everything into his hands so I did not have to worry about a thing. We had one problem with our cake topper not arriving and he didn't tell me (I told him he had permission to do that) he just took apart one of my bridesmaids bouquets after the ceremony and put them on the cake. I swear it looked better than if the cake topper actually arrived! The bridal suite is drop dead beautiful, they brought us beer, wine and champagne, cold and hot appetizers. When my husband and I were waiting to be introduced they brought us cocktail hour appetizers so we could eat a little bit. During dinner they brought us one of everything so we could try it all. It was an amazing night and if I could redo it, I would pick the palace all over again!
