What can we say about the Village Club, besides that it's the best place to get married. From day 1, we worked with Tracy from Philip Stone Caterers and the result from it was the best wedding ever, and a life long friend. Tracy and Tom went above and beyond the norm to make the days prior to our wedding as stress-free and exciting as possible. Tracy catered to my wife's every need, doubt and desire. Tracy had a vision from the get-go, from the menu, to the decor, to color schemes. And she delivered.

The Village Club has set a new standard... from the new beautifully renovated ballroom, to the food, everything is above and beyond. They strive to be more of a restaurant dining experience than a catering hall. Anthony, our Maitre'd for the day was awesome. He was so fun, catering and organized. He knew where all of his staff was, where we needed to be, and generally an awesome guy. Fun fact, he's a close friend of our cousin who attended -- small world. Patty, our bridal attendant took care of my bride. Holding her gown, getting her drinks, makeup, tissues, anything! The woman was a swiss army knife!

What really brought the service over the edge was what they did with a large wooden monogram we had made from etsy of our new initials (we share the same one now!). At first, the staff/Anthony wasn't sure where would put it and how we'd display it. They were thinking of putting it on one of those portfolio canvas stands they use for boards and paintings, and i'm sure, while not ideal and aesthetically pleasing, it would've done the job. But no, they didn't settle for it. Tom, Anthony and Patty hung the monogram on the brick wall and uplighted it also! IT MADE THE WALL, MONOGRAM AND BAR LOOK AMAZING and SOO personal!

We can't thank the people at the Village Club of Lake Success enough for making our day, the best day of our lives!

Village Club

I had my wedding at the Village Club at Lake Success in September 2013.
The place is beautiful, and in September the trees and flowers were really outstandingly beautiful. There is also a lake, which was great for taking photos.
I did all my photographs there and there are so many cute spots to do really beautiful photos, also the place is very specious.
I first met Tom, who was very helpful and showed us the place, once we booked it we had all our meetings with Nicole.
Nicole has been so helpful. In few words, she was very organized, answered all my questions. Also she had some really great suggestions as far as tables and set up and arranging the dinner room in the best way for the amount of people that we had. The result of the room thanks to Nicole 's suggestions came out to be so beautiful.
We went for a food tasting and the food was so delicious. We ended up with chicken , salmon and filet mignon and all of my guests especially were impressed with how good the food tasted.
(At the wedding Nicole packed for us to take home one of each dish since the bride and groom never really end up eating at their wedding)
My favorite was the chocolate moose that was one of the best I have ever had.
I must also mention that I asked them to make a cake for me that I gave them a photograph of how I want it to look, and it passed my expectations. The cake looked amazing.
I was especially amazed also how everything that I asked to have on the day of the wedding (some photographs lined up and ketubah and special glasses for us for dinner and my cake knife , all of it was done exactly how I imagined, Nicole also organized my favors beautifully)
My bridal attendant Patty, was one of the nicest people and very helpful all day.
Nicole and Tom were generous and really wonderful with all my planning, thank you so much.
We really had a fantastic time and we hope that there will be more celebrations in the future! Thank you for everything

From the first time we laid eyes at Village Club my husband and I fell in love with the venue and decided to have our reception at the venue. The professionalism thereafter shown by both Tom and Nicole was amazing. This includes the planning, attentiveness to detail, food, and creating an overall amazing ambiance. Our reception was truly magical because of of them and because of the natural beauty of this venue.

The day of the wedding everything was on point and the quality of service was amazing. The place was beautiful, the food was delicious and everyone had a great time. It's a hidden gem.

Meeting with the consultants became difficult for me at times, I felt less important. I was told things would be taken care of and were not delivered on- I had to take care of things last minute. I also had to work around their schedules the week of the wedding (when I was running my last minute errands). I also didn't get phone calls returned- unprofessional.

Having said that "last minute stress", the day was great and have no complaints! Definitely recommend this venue.

Our wedding at the Village Club was fantastic!! The only thing that made it awful was Tracy. She was great at first, great when we booked a year ago. However, about 2 months before our wedding she got really nasty. She was confusing things we were telling her, she wasn't including things we discussed with her, she left a lot of things out and we had to keep reminding her of things. It sounded like a personal issue was clouding her work, that or we were already committed so she didn't have to impress us anymore. Tom, Anthony and Nicole were great to work with, as was the head chef. The food is excellent, the venue is gorgeous, very modern and SoHo lofty (we didn't want gold and marble). 6 months ago I thought I'd be giving the venue 5 stars, but Tracy unfortunately affected the rating.

Definitely go check it out if you want your guests to talk about your wedding in a positive way. Fish tacos with a mini patron bottles and kobe beef hot dogs with shots of blue moon make everyone happy :) Just avoid Tracy!

The village club is beautiful; it’s really in its own category and the furthest from a typical LI wedding venue that we did not want. Another awesome thing about this place is that you are the ONLY bride!.. Big score!.
We dealt with Tracy during our planning process and didn't have a great experience and in the end many things that were over communicated, finalized and confirmed did not happen.
Hiccups included, the signature drink was not offered all evening as promised by Tracey, in turn bartenders told my guests “they ran out” which was mortifying.
My husband asked for 1 beer that he drank to be offered, when he went to ask for it that night they told him they didn't have it. Very upsetting. In addition there were other liquors that were in our contract that the bar didn't have and told our guests “they didn't have” again very embarrassing.
In addition there was discrepancy in the start time of our ceremony that didn't really set the day off on a good foot, it wasn't really an issue and none of the guests knew but it still was annoying when this was something we confirmed multiple times with Tracey.
There was also no menu cards on the place settings, that was in our contract

I would also like to add that we did address these concerns with Tom after the wedding and he said he would look into all of them and get back to us and genuinely upset that we were disappointed. I did receive an emailed response from Tom but unfortunately it was not what was expected to hear.
