A truly unforgettable and remarkably beautiful wedding for my daughter and her husband! The Regatta Place (Goat Island Newport, RI) location is “over-the-top” strikingly beautiful, and the experience, competence, great taste and focus on perfection in every detail by Galen (Sales), Sarah and Maggie (Banquet Event Managers), was simply outstanding. This team was easy to work with, made invaluable suggestions all along the way and had a wonderful way of dealing with all of our questions, suggestions and situations that came up! The Regatta Place staff was extremely accommodating, helpful and patient and answered every question - big or small. The pre-ceremony bridal suite, located upstairs in the Goat Island Marina, made for a truly memorable and intimate staging area for my daughter and her bridesmaids, as they excitedly gazed down on the arrival of the guests for the ceremony. Once our beautifully intimate and touching “on-dock” ceremony was over, we were immediately greeted by the first of the Regatta Place servers with a endless flow for delicious hors d’oeurves, kicking off the toasting to our newlyweds. The cocktail hour, adjacent to both the ceremony and reception areas, was comfortable, charming, abundant and delicious, with its incredible dockside views of Newport harbor! Maggie was right there effortlessly orchestrating every twist in the timeline. The actual reception area looked amazingly gorgeous, and the great service continued. And then there was Maggie again…ever present, head on a swivel, hard working, unflappable in directing the concert of the wedding - all that with a smile on her face in every instance! The food was delicious, and the flow of the wedding was perfect. Chelsea and Matt’s wedding was elegant and truly was everything and more than we all dreamed possible. I would recommend The Regatta Place venue in a heartbeat!

Our first impression of Regatta Place was at the end of winter, the tent wasn't even up but we still knew it was the perfect wedding venue. Galen showed us around and she was super helpful, as we were just starting to look for a venue. She showed us two locations: Regatta and OceanCliff and was completely upfront regarding packages and pricing and made honest suggestions as to staying within our budget. The tasting was OK. There were a ton of vendors to talk to. Not all food options were available to taste but there was a good variety. The only frustrating part was that there were very few tables to sit down at once you had a selection of food to taste and there were a TON of people there. Communication with the staff was super easy from the time we signed our contract throughout the entire planning and execution stages. Even before our scheduled details meeting, we could email with any stupid question and they would get back to us immediately. Our main contact at Regatta ended up taking a position somewhere else about 5 months before our wedding and her replacement immediately contacted us to introduce herself and was thoroughly familiar with our event details. Our last details meeting was scheduled an hour before the ceremony rehearsal and the staff really helped to calm our nerves. The ceremony rehearsal went smoothly. Sarah and Maggie had already been in contact with all of our vendors, so everything was super coordinated. The day of the wedding, we walked into Regatta and everything was PERFECT. The tables looked amazing. The decorations were amazingly arranged. We couldn't have asked for more. The bridal suite was roomy and the staff kept us stocked with champagne and cheese/crackers. Once the ceremony was set to begin, we were guided through everything. There was a server set specifically for the bride and groom and she didn't miss a beat. Whenever we needed anything, she was right there. Most importantly, our guests loved every last minute at Regatta.

Our wedding at Regatta Place was truly perfect. The planning process couldn’t have been easier working with Sarah, and the big day seamlessly came together with help from our day-of coordinator, Maggie. They are both so sweet, organized, solution oriented and calm – what more could a bride ask for? :) We fell in love with the space from just the pictures online. In person, there were so many décor details that made it even more special! The food was amazing – our friends and family are still raving about it. We couldn’t be happier with our decision to get married at Regatta Place <3

We had the perfect wedding day at Regatta Place. The venue itself can't be beat- surrounded by water and beautiful yachts- and the staff is professional, friendly, and accommodating. We worked with Melissa and Sarah throughout the process and they were so quick to reply to all of my questions and provided so much helpful information. On the wedding day, we worked with Maggie and she was incredible! She guided us through the day and made sure that everything was perfect. She took care of every little situation that came up- even printing my sister's maid of honor speech when she realized she forgot it! We are so happy we chose Regatta Place and would do the whole thing over if we could!

Our wedding was absolutely perfect in every way and we have Regatta Place to thank! We stumbled upon this venue on our search around Newport. We didn't have an appointment but went to check it out anyway. They were so friendly and accommodating to take us in last minute! We looked at this venue in January when it was freezing and it was SO beautiful. They were so flexible and accommodating with our budget and our needs. We are so happy we chose Regatta Place! They made our entire wedding stress free and perfect. We showed up early because we had problems with our trolley company. We were unfortunately unable to do our pictures in downtown Newport because of the trolley so he dropped us off early at the venue. They were SO accommodating and let us take pictures out on the dock! We had dropped all of our decorations off the day before in boxes. When we showed up, they had the wedding all set up and organized the way we had hoped! It was STUNNING! Every detail was thought of and taken care of - even the bridal suite was stocked with drinks and appetizers!! Sarah and Maggie are amazing!! They were the best to work with! Not only are they super friendly but they sure know how to organize and put together a stress free and perfect wedding. Everything was taken care of - we didn't have to lift a finger or wait in line at the bar. At the end of the night, they even packed up all of our things for us! The service they provide is top notch and if I could give this place more than 5 stars I would!! We had so many people come up to us to say this was the best wedding they have been to. Thank you Regatta Place team, Maggie and Sarah! You were PERFECT!!

Absolutely beautiful venue, amazing service and delicious food! My husband and I could not have been happier that we chose The Regatta Place for our reception. The staff was incredibly helpful and patient with all my questions and requests the year leading up to it and the day of the wedding they (particularly Maggie!) were just as supportive. They took care of everything and made sure it was all perfect. They are true professionals there. The setting is absolutely stunning and the food was the best wedding food I've had- I wish I could go back not in a tight wedding dress and eat everything! They worked with all of our vendors to make sure everything went smoothly and always went out of their way to make me feel incredibly special. If you want to have your wedding in Newport, this is where you should do it!

The Regatta Place in Newport, RI is an exquisite venue to host a wedding. We held both our wedding ceremony and reception here and could not be more pleased with the results. Our wedding happened to be on a very hot day and the staff took extra care to make sure that we were comfortable and cool. They even supplied a water station to our guests prior to the ceremony. The staff were attentive, kind, and courteous throughout the day, and even allowed us to arrive early to take photos on location prior to our ceremony. The facilities are beautifully kept and the bridal suite was stocked with water, champagne, and hors d'oeuvres. The chef was receptive to our request for vegetarian options and we received many compliments from guests about the quality of their food. We could not have asked for more from a venue for our big day. Highly recommended!

We can't say enough good things about this venue. The food was delicious. Our guests raved about the lobster boil! The service was absolutely outstanding. Everything was taken care of before we could even ask for it the day of the wedding. Also, all the planning emails were responded to quickly and they offered ideas and solutions the entire way through to ensure our day was perfect. Never mind, that the venue itself is beautiful. The sunset during our ceremony was absolutely gorgeous. We are so happy we got married here and would highly recommend it to anyone.

Our wedding at Regatta Place was a dream come true. I have nothing but wonderful things to say about this venue!

When I first set eyes on Regatta Place online after my husband, Phil, and I got engaged, I knew we had to have our reception there. We decided to stop through Newport on our way home to NYC to see it and fell in love. Elsa Fisher helped us that day and was warm, helpful, and accomodating. She was willing to work with us to accomodate our budget and we could not believe how reasonable the venue was. We booked on the spot. Throughout the year, the whole team at Regatta Place made planning our destination simple and stress-free. We also had a blast at the wonderfully organized tasting event called the Prelude at Ocean Cliff in Februrary.

During the stressful weeks leading up to the wedding, I had nothing to worry about as far as the reception. I knew the venue had everything under control. Rebecca, our coordinator, was incredible, as was Kristina. Our weather forecast was terrible, but they had umbrellas for all of the guests and a rain plan just in case (we ended up with beautiful weather, but it was reassuring that they were so prepared). Worried about not being able to eat? Have no fear! They assign you with a "captain" throughout the night who caters to the bride and groom's every need who will fill up your glass and meet you at the gate with every appetizer on a platter to make sure you're getting to experience your wedding. They timed everything PERFECTLY. They waited until Phil & I were finished greeting all of our guests before bringing out our dinner just so it would still be warm and fresh.

I couldn't recommend this place highly enough. It was a beautiful reception and I couldn't have asked for more. It was our dream wedding. We are still getting compliments from all of our guests saying that it was the best wedding they have ever been to and that they were so impressed by the classy venue. Thank you to everyone at Regatta Place!
