Just had our reception on November 29th 2015. Couldn't wait to tell everyone about my experiences at the Villa at Mountain Lakes. The Place was decorated absolutely beautiful. What a great day we had from the ceremony to the entire reception. I didn't want it to end. We listened to our sale person Ben and used all there suggested vendors. Good choice they met and exceeded out expectation and were so easy to work with .Pricing was fair and we to the menu we picked out was a big hit with our guests. They told us it was so much food and delicious. Our event planner Angel was so helpful and on point the day of the wedding.
Our wedding cake was exactly as I asked for, unique and delicious and made right there at the Villa.
I will certainly consider using the Villa for any other events I have in the future.

Happy Bride and Groom!

We had our ceremony and reception at the Villa. Linda was in charge of our wedding and she made sure everything was perfect. The grand ballroom was beautiful and the perfect space for our reception. Linda went above and beyond to make sure our day was special! The food was delicious and our guests all had a great time!

This was both our second marriage and we wanted our ceremony and reception all in one venue. We had called and visited most of the "popular" catering facilities in Essex, Morris & Passaic Counties however they all wanted to sell us "their" wedding package however "we" didn't want the traditional wedding. I had worked with Frungillo Caterers years ago when they were strictly off-premise catering and were very happy with their service so when I found out they owned and operated The Villa I called them. From my first call I knew I was at the right place! The receptionist was very knowledgeable and understanding of what we were looking for and assured me that Ben, our Event Specialist, had been creating personalized events for over 20 years.....well she was right! We had a beautiful ceremony right on premise then moved right into another room for our cocktail/receiving hour - then into dinner and dancing! The night just flowed and our friends and relatives were so impressed with the ambiance and intimacy of the venue.....they are trying to have us plan an anniversary party! MV

We recently got married at the Villa. The service was great, they made sure everyone was happy and pleased. They made every little detail that we wanted in our wedding possible. The food was amazing and presented perfect, including the cake. I dealt with Alberto for all our final information and he was also our maitre'd. His intention to all my concerns were met.

My neice Marissa recently had her wedding at Villa at Mountain Lakes. It was my pleasure to help her plan and organize her wedding.
The folks at The Villa were very easy and flexible to work with as they seem to really know what they are doing.
We did get a chance to meet with one of the owners, Ben during the planning stages and he promised that all will go according to plan. He was correct because it did.
I would recommend The Villa to anyone that wants to have a first class wedding and all within the constraints of our budget.

I had my daughter's wedding at the Villa this past September and couldn't have chosen a better venue. The wedding was everything I had hoped for her and more. I chose the Villa and Frungillo Caterers because of their long standing reputation of providing amazing food, and I was not disappointed. Their attention to every last detail was unmatched. They went out of their way to make sure that we were happy with every last detail leading up to the day of the wedding and went above and beyond on our daughter's special day!

The Villa ruined my wedding.

It will be hard to keep this review brief, as the field only allows you to type so much.

My husband and I planned our NJ wedding from abroad, from two separate cities in Europe. That in itself was a challenge, along with which were concerns that we were very upfront in communicating to the Villa. Everyone was quite accommodating and understanding in that regard - right up until we signed a contract. Funny how that's when the trouble began.

Communication was a JOKE. Our phone calls and emails were almost always ignored. We never heard from our maitre'd before the wedding, ever. I met him as I entered the venue. The wrong name appeared on the sign directing people into the ballroom. I'm not sure anyone even looked at the seating arrangement we sent, which resulted in my own mother having to sit at a table set up at the last minute in front of all of our guests with no chair cover and no centerpiece. ROACHES IN THE SANGRIA - sangria that I paid extra for. I spent two days making trips to several craft stores and spent a lot of money on just the right string of crystals to put on the cake - they were never put on the cake, and I never saw them again. Rude staff. Simple requests completely ignored. We were told that the sweet sixteen happening in the room next door would be contained and supervised - instead, we had teenagers being rude to my guests and rifling through my toiletry baskets in the bathroom. My personalised champagne flutes were never returned, and when I emailed to ask about them, I was told I'd be gotten back to right away - I've never heard about them since. And I can go on.

What happened when we contacted Robert Frungillo and his staff? Nothing. We have been blown off for months, and told that the only way our issues will be addressed is if we see them in person. We live in Europe.

My stomach turns every time I think about my wedding day; choosing the Villa was a mistake I will forever regret.

We were married at The Villa on June 28th of 2014 and we had both our ceremony and reception there. What we really liked about the set up of The Villa is that there is a completely separate large room for the ceremony and another separate room for the reception. Other places we looked at didn't have that option. Both rooms are beautiful, but the Grand Ballroom for our Reception was exquisite. Plus there are other little rooms around The Villa that make it a great place to hang out especially for cocktail hour. Our wedding had two ceremonies - a traditional Indian one and a Catholic one. We also had another cater on top of The Villa food because we required Indian vegetarian options. Thus as you can tell we had a whole lot going on during our wedding day. Overall everything went very smoothly on The Villa side. Our Maitre'D for the day was Linda and she was with us the whole time and was able to accommodate all of our requests. We had issues with our outside cater and Linda tried to coordinate and put everything together as best as she could. The only part that we were not happy with is our Wedding Cake which was made by The Villa and was including as part of our package. Our Wedding Cake wasn't even close to what we asked for. We wanted chocolate mouse and red velvet layers and the cake had neither. It was basically some vanilla cake they did and it also looked nothing like the pictures we provided. All in all with all of the moving pieces we had during our wedding, we would say that overall we were pretty happy with how everything turned out at The Villa and are excited to go back for our friends' wedding in April of this year there.
