My wife and I had our reception at The Waterview this past June and our experience was tremendous. The entire staff, especially our event coordinator, Colin Melita were fantastic and on their game throughout the whole event. Not only did Colin and the staff keep us calm and ensure the day went without any issues, they were so organized throughout the planning process.

The location is amazing. It is impossible to be disappointed about that. The food was very good. We've heard so many incredible compliments about the food, specifically the Prime Rib, Grilled Swordfish and Chicken Normandy.

I can go on and on about the venue and service and everything I say will be absolutely positive. I don't have one negative. As stressful as the wedding planning process can be, one thing you should feel completely confident in is choosing the Waterview. Requesting Colin as your event planner would be a smart decision as well.

The Waterview was an amazing venue for our wedding on June 14, 2014. Our coordinator was Kat Urcioli and she was fantastic. She was always responsive, flexible, and helpful. She never made us feel like we weren't a priority even when I was reaching out to her months before our actual wedding date. The grounds are breathtaking- I can't wait to see how our photos turned out. I would recommend the Waterview to anyone looking to get married in CT.

THE BEST VENUE EVER! We chose to have a day wedding at the Waterview, on the East Side. I'd never even been to a wedding here before, but the view spoke for itself. I knew my nautical theme wedding would be perfect here! Colin was the best coordinator ever. There was nothing left forgotten, every single detail I told him was completed without any hiccups. Not to mention, him greeting our limo with champagne was the perfect touch! The food was AMAZING and our bridal attendants were amazing partners to have (they even helped me with my bustle)! I cannot say enough, the venue was perfect, and the food was amazing. People were seriously almost licking their plates. The cake was done to my exact liking, you would think I paid an outside baker to design it! The layout of the event was spread-out enough so guests were not sitting on top of one another. The downstairs patio was the perfect spot for cocktail hours on a gorgeous day overlooking the lake. I wish I could re-live the day we had and the service we experienced. We were taken such GREAT care of, everyone was so attentive to us and our guests. SUPERB!!! THANK YOU COLIN!!!!

The Waterview was the most amazing venue for my recent wedding! All of the staff members were so well organized and truly show that they care about their clients. The Event Coordinators do such an amazing job of taking care of you on your special day without invading your space. Mine, Colin, made sure my husband & I were eating, drinking and enjoying our time throughout the whole duration of our wedding. I would highly recommend The Waterview for a wedding venue!

I just got married here in April of 2014, Kathleen was my wedding coordinator. I have to say, I was pretty difficult and extremely picky, I kept saying to my fiancé that they are going to need a vacation after dealing with me. Leading up to my wedding Kathleen was very attentive, answered all my emails/phone calls and questions and worked with me on getting exactly what I wanted. On my wedding day Kathleen made it all run smoothly and to be honest, I cannot give her enough credit. I was really nervous because as with EVERYTHING there were some negative reviews about the Waterview but I have to say, there was tons of delicious food (they didn't skimp and the food was cooked perfectly), the venue was clean and looked beautiful with all my decorations. I would truly recommend getting married here. They really do help you customize your wedding! Oh and the best part, I asked Kathleen if we could have a signature drink and she created one that was so good I had them all night long! This venue is great if you really want a customized, detailed, well run venue. BTW their candy buffet and sundae bar are so worth the extra $$, mine was awesome!!!!! Also request Kathleen she is the best coordinator!

I can't say enough positive things about Kat and the Waterview. Professional, accommodating, responsive, amazing food, beautiful setting and just an overall wonderful experience. They were so responsive to my emails and questions, I brought custom items/accents and put most out as they should - my friends and family can't stop raving about the food. They even accommodated our special drink list. Our dinner they did a special medley for us as well. All of our vendors were comfortable with them. It was amazing!!

Amazing venue! My husband and I were just married September 14th of 2013 (few days ago!!! ) at the Waterview. It is very accommodating venue, clean, efficient and the staff was nothing but amazing. Our wedding coordinator, Jon C. worked his magic all night, and along with the staff, made sure everyone was having a great time and that everything ran smoothly. The food was great, the service was great and everyone was extremely profession!! The chandeliers are great, carpet does not attract too much attention, and it is all in all a classy looking venue! Not to mention it is right on the water!! I can't count how many of our guests complimented the facility either!! Loved every moment!!! Thank you, Waterview!!!

We booked the Waterview for our wedding almost a year and a half before our date, and knew the moment we saw it that it was right for us. Not only was the venue gorgeous, but the food was amazing and the staff phenomenal. They did everything possible to make our day perfect and I can't thank them enough for everything they did. I would recommend them to anyone looking for a stress free experience in planning their wedding.

We booked a day wedding at the Waterview. We went to a half dozen different venues and we fell in love with the Waterview. We planned an outdoor wedding on the West side but it was pouring on our wedding day so we had it in the backup ceremony location which was just as beautiful. The entire staff and the support and help that everyone gave at the Waterview was spectacular. The food was amazing, everyone said that their food was incredible for a wedding. The staff was so great on keeping everything on schedule and making sure that myself and my wife were very comfortable and were eating and drinking. Loved every second of it. Great location!

We can't say enough about The Waterview and it's staff. The venue itself is beautiful, the food is delicious, the staff is accommodating and friendly, the pricing is very reasonable - and that's just the tip of the iceburg. We had the pleasure of working with Kat and Maureen as coordinators and Drew as our bartender; they made what is usually a stressful time, so very easy and enjoyable. They worked with us every step of the way to make sure we had everything we wanted. Our guests are still raving about our wedding. We can not thank you enough for everything!

I had my wedding reception at the Waterview. I ended up working with Kathleen who was absolutely incredible. She was amazing at communicating with me in a timely manner (especially the week before the wedding when I had a million and a half questions). At the wedding, Kathleen made absolute certain that I was being taken care of. It was a pleasure to have worked with her.

With 300+ guests at my wedding I was nervous about having enough room during cocktail hour and lines at the bar since we had only booked 3/4 of the Waterview(rather than the entire hall). The Waterview made sure that these concerns weren't an issue.

I received a ton of compliments on the food. I was told by numerous people that the Prime Rib was the best they had ever had. Everyone raved about the spread provided during the Venetian hour. In addition, the cheeseburger and bacon egg and cheese late night station was a huge hit.

I don't have single complaint. The Waterview made my wedding day picture perfect. I was having so much fun and had such an amazing time working with Kathleen and Maureen that I actually cried at the end of the night when my wedding had ended. I would recommend booking a wedding or any event at the Waterview to EVERYONE. The facility and grounds are beautiful, the staff is amazing, and the food is delicious :o)

I had my wedding reception at the Waterview. I ended up working with Kathleen who was absolutely incredible. She was amazing at communicating with me in a timely manner (especially the week before the wedding when I had a million and a half questions). At the wedding, Kathleen made absolute certain that I was being taken care of. It was a pleasure to have worked with her.

With 300+ guests at my wedding I was nervous about having enough room during cocktail hour and lines at the bar since we had only booked 3/4 of the Waterview(rather than the entire hall). The Waterview made sure that these concerns weren't an issue.

Beautiful and elegant were some common words our guests used to describe the Waterview. From start to finish they made sure our reception went off without a hitch! Kathleen was our wedding coordinator and could not have been more attentive or approachable! The food was phenomenal, especially the wedding cake with cannoli filling! I highly recommend the Waterview!

Your big day should be an experience, not a just another party.

We met April, the Sales Director about a year before. She guided us through our menu choices. She took us on a tour of the reception hall choices and as we went along, she would ask questions based on previous weddings held in each room which was very cool.
Kat was our wedding Coordinator.
Kat went above and beyond for us. I felt she was truly a part of our big day, that it was just as important to her as it was to me and that was something I did not expect and very much appreciated. She remembered details we discussed early on that I had completely forgot I mentioned as the finals weeks approached.
The min our feet hit the pavement, my entire wedding party felt like Modern Royalty. We were met by glasses of champagne served by smiling, friendly servers. Every passed Hors d'oeuvre, every cocktail, every moment of the early evening was perfect!
The staff truly made us feel the importance of every moment of our wedding. Some examples of how we were blown away by the service we experienced:
I wanted Grand Marnier for my signature margaritas but the staff has mentioned early on that they did not stock that brand in particular. No big deal, we forgot about it completely. The day of my wedding, a server pulled out my chair to seat me and when he did, He said to my husband " we ordered a bottle of Grand Marnier for your signature Margaritas if you would like one". BLOWN AWAY.
Kat was within ear shot at all times, but never overbearing or in the way the entire evening, She knew what I needed before I did! When Tony and I went table to table to greet guests, Kat made sure our dinner was held so that it was warm when we finally got a chance to sit down. True service.
We felt as our staff for the evening were having just as much fun as the rest of us, and that makes all the difference in the world. It truly meant everything to us and it was a day we will cherish always.

The Waterview is an INCREDIBLE place to have a Reception. It is absolutely beautiful and you feel like you’re on a private estate with well-manicured grounds. They have stone benches, a fountain surrounded by beautiful hedges, a portico where they hold outdoor ceremonies, and seasonal flowers: all on beautiful Lake Zoar. So many places to take pictures!!

When my husband and I first arrived at the Waterview we thought...there is NO WAY we can afford this! We walked around the outside and it was like a dream. I got emotional countless times and in those moments I just KNEW we had to have our Reception there. They always say: when you know, you know! I didn’t get that feeling at any other venue we visited.

We had a meeting with Maureen Huntley, (who is AMAZING, by the way!!), and she gave us the grand tour. When we sat down to talk numbers, I distinctly remember my husband saying..."Ok, crush our dreams." On the contrary! We couldn't believe how affordable it was. We didn't have much to think about after that and called Maureen hours later to book the date.

The Waterview takes the worry away from you regarding planning your Reception and keeps you on track with timelines. I am an Interior Designer and I had VERY SPECIFIC instructions on where to place candles, flowers, flip-flops, specialty napkins, and picture frames...the list goes on and on! We had a million additional stations as well, some with special requests. Kathleen Urciuoli was our event planner and with the help of the staff nailed EVERY DETAIL. You will be surprised how flexible the Waterview is on your requests.

You will get 2 personal matradee's to tend to your every need, and your event planner will be there as well. We never went without a drink in our hands, or needed to ask for anything. Since my husband and I never had the chance to sit down and eat, Jason (one of our Matradee’s), was amazing at making sure our food never got cleared and eventually wrapped it up for us to eat later. Our guests were so impressed with the Waterview and we still receive compliments on our reception and comments that the food is the best they have ever had at any Wedding.

So, the food was INCREDIBLE, the staff was AMAZING, the service was TO DIE FOR, and the Waterview made everything so easy for us. I had a Great Uncle of 93 years old that wasn’t sure if he could attend the Reception due to health reasons. The Waterview accommodated him, and the nurse who accompanied him, last minute and didn’t even charge us for their plates. It was very extremely touching and I am forever grateful. In my opinion, The Waterview is one of the most beautiful places in this area to have your Reception and Ceremony: inside and out. You will be AMAZED at their ballrooms and the height of their ceilings. Book them today and do not wait!!!

My daughter’s wedding in June was spectacular. Our event manager was Brian. He made everything go quite smoothly all night and handled our near 200 guests with ease and a refreshing enthusiasm. The food was delicious (lobster bread pudding!), especially the fillet mignon; lots of compliments from our guests on the chicken roulade and salmon. Of course, nothing beats the luxurious atmosphere of the Waterview with the lovely views of Lake Zoar. The trees lit up at night made everything quite romantic. I must mention the wedding cake (marble cake with cannoli cream) as it was quite a hit. Don't pass up the pastry/cookie trays they offer ... superior!

My husband and I could not have been happier with The Waterview! First of all, the location and the grounds, both inside and out, are incredibly beautiful. From the first time that I went to visit, they were so nice and accommodating. Our wedding coordinator, Kat, was amazing and took care of absolutely everything. She made sure that everything ran smoothly and that the groom and I didn't have to think about a single thing on the day of. The bridal party had our own personal staff who literally waited on us hand and foot. They had a new drink for me before I would even realize that I was almost to the bottom of the one I already had. The food was also DELICIOUS! Everything from the appetizers to the pasta to the main courses were amazing, one thing was better than the next. I had so many guests who said that it was the best food they had ever eaten, let alone at a wedding. The portions were huge too... I had chosen the antipasto salad for an appetizer and my uncle started clearing room in the middle of the table because he thought it was being served family style! All of our guests were totally impressed with The Waterview, and like I said, we couldn't have been happier with our choice! I hope every bride is lucky enough to have their wedding at such an amazing venue.

The Waterview was amazing for my wedding ceremony & reception on 7/1/2011. Everything was perfect! Guests were greeted & served champagne & cold water prior to my ceremony while music played. The ceremony went off without any issues. The cocktail hour was perfect-everything was fresh from the raw bar & all hors d’oeuvres & stations served hot food--very key to the foodie in me. All guests said their dinners were delicious & hot. The Venetian dessert table had a great variety & everything was delicious. The pastry chef made my cupcake cake without any fuss-it looked beautiful! The kids enjoyed the chocolate fountain especially.

All Waterview staff were extremely accommodating & helpful. Special thanks & credit to Jon who took over as our planner 3 weeks before hand--not one issue occurred. Our personal staff Emily & Kaitlyn were sweet & always there for our every need.

I worked with Keith as my coordinator at the Waterview and could not have been more pleased. They really worked with my family and I to make sure the event was everything and more. My family was wowed at the venue itself but EVERYONE raved about the food, to the point where I had people saying they wished they had a restaurant attached just to get some more of that filet migon. The bartenders were amazing as well, as were the drinks. We had a signature drink which they did to a T. Most importantly though Keith had a great way of checking in on us, he even did so with other guests, which people had expressed appreciation of to us. We had a great experience with them and would recommend them to anyone.

The food was very good. I thought that it was the best food that I have ever had in a wedding...and yes, I ate every single thing that was there. I didn't want to miss our meal. Our wedding cordinator was with us every step of the way. He was very attentive and was bringing me water every 5 minutos (which I really needed after all the dancing). I had an amazing time and I wished that we had gotten more time. It was a party I never wanted to end. The dance floor was amazing!

We held our daughter's Bat-Mitzvah for 200 guests at the Waterview in June of 2009. From our first meeting with them almost two years prior, to the crunch time two weeks prior, through the evening of our affair, everything at the Waterview was top-notch. There clearly is a culture amongst the wonderful people who work at The Waterview to please the guests, and never say no. The food was absolutely phenomenal and very plentiful, from the sushi and the baby lamb chops at the extended cocktail party to the Chilean Sea Bass, the candy bar and the ice cream sundae bar at the dinner reception. From the owner to the maitre de to the waiters and bartenders, the service and the attitude clearly demonstrate that they all recognize what an important milestone in our life this day was, and they made you feel like they felt the same way. No detail was overlooked. Many many guests commented not only on the beautiful location and room, and on the wonderful food, but on the non-stop service that was heaped upon them.

We held our daughter's Bat-Mitzvah for 200 guests at the Waterview in June of 2009. From our first meeting with them almost two years prior, to the crunch time two weeks prior, through the evening of our affair, everything at the Waterview was top-notch. There clearly is a culture amongst the wonderful people who work at The Waterview to please the guests, and never say no. The food was absolutely phenomenal and very plentiful, from the sushi and the baby lamb chops at the extended cocktail party to the Chilean Sea Bass, the candy bar and the ice cream sundae bar at the dinner reception. From the owner to the maitre de to the waiters and bartenders, the service and the attitude clearly demonstrate that they all recognize what an important milestone in our life this day was, and they made you feel like they felt the same way. No detail was overlooked. Many many guests commented not only on the beautiful location and room, and on the wonderful food, but on the non-stop service that was heaped upon them.

Working with the Waterview was a pleasure. Jon was very helpful through the entire process and made us feel extra special the entire time. We loved the grounds, the service (champagne and refreshments are served to guests before the ceremony even!), and the food and drink was awesome. They also recommend great vendors, which we ended up using. So many of my guests told me how great they thought the venue was.

I love the Waterview! I will say that I was a little nervous about my wedding because like some of the other reviews, I had some issues leading up. But the actual wedding day, everything was perfect! I did have several wedding coordinator changes prior to the wedding, but I believe only one of them actually quit (other reviews indicate several people quit). I believe another change was unexpected and unpreventable. I was also concerned b/c the venue does not give you a tasting prior to your event. But really no need, the food was absolutely amazing! We were able to meet in person with the baker (sorry, I cant remember her name) and she made us the most perfect wedding cake. It was EXACTLY what we had asked for! Kathleen was my final coordinator and she was absolutely amazing! When my DJ bailed on me she downloaded all my first songs on her iphone at her own expense, just so I could enjoy my cocktail hour. Her staff was super attentive and made sure everyone was happy and things kept moving as needed. I had a shuttle bus that was bringing many of my guests from a hotel down the street – the shuttle got stuck in a ton of traffic on the way so the Waterview extended my cocktail hour by 15 minutes to make up for the time lost.
The Waterview certainly exceeded my expectations. They worked with me on pricing from the beginning, and when we didn’t meet our required final head count, they worked with me to make up the value in other ways.

We really could not have found a better place for our wedding for the money! Our coordinator Keith was laid back, but definitely on top of everything. I didn't have to worry about a thing! Dean in the business office was a pleasure to work with and was very flexible. The food was great and the cake was elegant and tasty to boot! My only complaint is if you have an afternoon reception, be prepared to move quickly to make way for the evening bunch. As long as you know what you signed up for, you are in for a treat. I highly recommend this place!

From beginning to end, we had a fantastic experience with The Waterview. We lucked out in that someone had to move up their wedding date so we were able to get married on Memorial Day Weekend 2010. Things open up for a variety of reasons, so if there is waiting list (The Waterview generally books up 18 months in advance), put your name on it.

Mandy was a fantastic wedding planner and was super responsive and flexible. We were able to bring in outside catering for our event (we had an Indian caterer) and still have some of the Waterview food. The team spent time trying to understand our Hindu wedding ceremony and made sure everything went perfectly. Last minute requests were accommodated and everyone was helpful from start to finish!

The venue itself is spectacular and we had an incredible ceremony outside on a gorgeous day overlooking the water. It could have not been more perfect.

Yes, The Waterview is pricey, but as the saying goes, you get what you pay for, and in the The Waterview's case what you get is fantastic!!!

While definitely on the pricier side, the Waterview, particularly the West ballroom, is well worth it. The professionalism and quality of service provided by our coordinator, Colin Melita, were absolutely superb. At any moment, if there was even the thought of needing to address any item, Colin was there at the ready. Venue-wise, the grounds were absolutely stunning for our May wedding. The Waterview was fantastic all-around, definitely recommend it.

I just got married at The Waterview and my experience was wonderful. I was very very fortunate to work with Jon. I don't know who the other coordinator is but Jon was so fantastic and truly wonderful to work with. We cannot stop raving about him and how amazing he was. I sent a million e-mails weekly and asked even more questions and he answered all of them promptly. He was so kind and helpful and just so easy going. He made me feel calm on my wedding day as he was putting everything together and was very relaxed. He was truly wonderful and I would definitely suggest requesting him. The food was fantastic, everybody loved it. You cannot beat the view if you want a ceremony and reception overlooking the water. The ballrooms are beautiful, and the ceremony space is fantastic. I had one small problem with another employee before the wedding and Jon handled it next day. The few tiny hitches that happened at the wedding, were taken care of immediately. They were flexible in accommodating us for our rehearsal for the day before instead of a few days before as we came from out of town. Hilde the ceremony coordinator is wonderful! If I ever got married again or did a vow renewal, I would do it at The Waterview!

Their willingness to work with all of our vendors ensured our wedding was trouble free. The weather on our wedding day was gorgeous so the wedding was held outside. If it rained, they have a beautiful indoor facility as a backup.

Mandy was our coordinator and was spectacular. She responded promptly to all my emails. She took all of our ideas and implemented them in ways we could not have even imagined! The day of our rehearsal we realized we had forgotten to pick up our linens. Mandy got right to work and had the company open specifically to get our order; it was truly above and beyond. The food was AMAZING everyone kept talking about how it was the best food they had ever had at a wedding. We also had their lighting package. This MADE the night, as it got darker out the room was washed in beautiful blues. it made everything even more magical and the pictures came out amazing!

Our bridal assistants Jason and Angie were so incredible and attentive to our every need. Our guests commented that the food was delicious and abundant. They did a great job setting everything up, and at the end of the night had everything we brought packaged up in boxes.

We enjoyed our wedding very much and so did our guests! The Waterview's food is impeccable as well as the staff. The chef even added Chef's Choice appetizers to our Cocktail Hour that was a surprise and they also added hot apple cider, all complimentary, to fit the Fall wedding! It was such a pleasant surprise. They have great grounds for the ceremony as well as a back up location that is pretty. It took the pressure off of having to worry about the weather.

The only 2 things I would approve there, and why I did not give 5ss across the board, are:

1) They tend to not be as friendly to hired Wedding Planners. I understand they provide Event Coordinators, but when a Bride has a vision they want to hire someone they know can create the vision. They need to cooperate more and, if the Bride wants the Planner to handle more, they need to be amenable to that. We spend good money on them for a reason, and the venue should not take it personally.

2) The second is the lack of a lot of flexibility on certain times for certain parts. They don't have a lot of flexibility for rehearsal times, so you need to be prepared for that. Also, if you have an evening wedding, there is little flexibility on the time you can show up for pictures on the grounds if you plan on doing them before the ceremony. They won't let you on before 5pm because of the earlier weddings. We chose to do pictures on the Monroe Town Green, which turned out to be better for time as well as scenery. THe trees were canopies of golden leaves which made for perfect fall pics!!

Other than that, everything was executed flawlessly, we were waited on hand and foot, and so were out guests. Thank you to the Waterview for providing such a magical venue for our Wedding!

I just recently had the wedding of my dreams at the Waterview. The views are absolutely stunning - and the space is just phenomenal.

It was wonderful to have a direct liaison throughout our 1 year engagement - and we were more the impressed with Kat. She always readily responded to the many questions that I had - especially in those final 2-3 weeks before our wedding day.

The Waterview only offers once main package - which was definitely a positive for us. We didn't need to choose between bronze, silver, gold, or platinum packages. Everything was included (table linens, bottles of wine on each table, wedding cake...).

The Waterview took care of EVERYTHING on our wedding day. The room was perfectly set up (I had dropped off my things with instructions days before the wedding). Kat and her assistant were willing to make any changes last minute - and were there (but not obtrusively) whenever we needed them.

Our guests raved about the food - and also appreciated the attentiveness of the waitstaff. At the same time, they were not hovering the tables - allowing for privacy.

At the end of the evening - the staff gathered up all of our things and had it ready to go on a cart. I had been concerned that we wouldn't remember to take all of our items with us - but in reality - it wasn't even a worry. The staff took care of it!

I couldn't be more pleased with the services of the Waterview. Our wedding was what dreams are made of - and our venue played a huge role in creating this magical day!

At the end of the evening - the staff gathered up all of our things and had it ready to go on a cart. I had been concerned that we wouldn't remember to take all of our items with us - but in reality - it wasn't even a worry. The staff took care of it!

I couldn't be more pleased with the services of the Waterview. Our wedding was what dreams are made of - and our venue played a huge role in creating this magical day! Read less

My husband and I got married here last July and had the wedding of our dreams. Although the day flew by fast it was absolutely perfect. Initiatlly I was a little frustrated with the fact that they were VERY hard to negotiate with on price, but we ended up working in everything that we wanted within our budget.

Our wedding coordinator, Linda, made sure everything was set up exactly as I requested...I had many "specifics" that I wanted and was so nervous things would be done incorrectly but she really was extremely detail oriented. From the moment the bridal party arrived at the venue, we had a wait staff by our side to provide us with drinks as we took pictures in the gardens and waited for our entrance to take place. There was also someone by my side the entire night informing me of when things would take place and always asking if there was anything we needed.

Our guests have raved about our wedding and have told us a number of times that our wedding was the best they had ever been to. The facility is gorgeous and well kept, the staff is amazing, and the food was delicious. Many guests commented on how on top of it the staff was as well. If you stood up and placed your napkin on the table, the waitstaff would fold up the napkin and place it back next to your plate without you even noticing...and drinks were always full!

I had my wedding in the morning on Memorial Day Weekend. Everyone had a wonderful time and could not stop raving about how beautiful it was, how great the food was, and how much they loved it! There were good and not so good things about it. The place itself was beautiful and had alot of space. I loved the outside ceremony next to the river. Since it was so early I was rushed around to get into my dress and quickly take pictures after the ceremony which i was not happy about because I had 4 hours of the reception. Even though i was rushed it was a perfect spot to get married!

We had a wonderful wedding at the Waterview. Vinnie was our coordinator and was very helpful. We had a few special requests and I was worried that they may not be up to par but the exceeded our expectations.

We continue to get rave reviews from our friends and family.

The only downside is that there is no tasting for any of the food.

The Waterview was great. We booked with them while they were still under construction (actually just a big pile of dirt and some blueprints!), but were reassured that everything would work out. They gave us a great deal for signing with them sight unseen and it ende dup being a great value. Our wedding was lovely. The lake provided a fabulous venue for our ceremony and the reception site was fantastic.

When we had several people unexpectedly not show, they refused us the same courtesy. Overall a positive experience.

We held our wedding here on May 5,2012. We had the ceremony (outdoors with a lake behind us) and the reception on the property and they were great to work with. If you are looking for a place that will pretty much handle anything and everything The Waterview is the place to use. They even supplied the cake! We loved them. The only downside is when they are ready for you to leave...it's time to leave. Our stuff was rolled out to the front door, which did come off a little rude. Other than that they were fabulous!

They work minimal days during the week because they are their on weekends but they rarely accept calls on weekends since they are handling the events. They day went perfectly though and we couldn't have been happier.

We felt that The Waterview, although expensive, was worth every penny. It was nice knowing that there was one price per person that included everything from the beautiful reception site, a garden for photos, all of the food/liquor and even the wedding cake. Upon our arrival after our church ceremony, our 2 limos were greeted by our planner, Mandy, and her staff at the front of the building. They took care of everything!! All day, we did not have to worry about a thing as everything was taken care of. She was great to work with and I suggest the facility and Mandy to anyone looking for somewhere in central Connecticut!!!

I loved every part of my Wedding - since I only had my ceremony in the West Garden of the Waterview, I cannot rate them fully. However, I did have a beautiful day. There are a few things that disappointed me to no end - first being that Hildie, the "coordinator" was not very bride friendly - as soon as I arrived on my big day, I was told to be quiet! Secondly, my guests stood outside in the hot weather only to find that the drinks and goodies station was in the direct sun with NO tent over it and everything was hot and melted, leaving my guests overheated. Lastly, Hildie was very rude during my photo taking and she was telling us to hurry up that we had to be out by 5PM and no later, which I knew and we still had plenty of time left. I would not recommend using her, as she was not very friendly and was very rude throughout the ceremony. Overall, the other staff was very nice and friendly, a bit on the snobby side though.

My experience with The Waterview overall was great. The grounds are very well kept and the interior is very clean and maintained well. It was very easy to contract my assigned wedding planner when I had questions. The food was excellent and very plentiful. The dance floor is very large and comfortably fit 100+ guests at once. The staff were very accomodating and the meal service was quick and professional.

Our ceremony was also here (outside on the smaller patio), and I was not happy with the flow of the ceremony. It started a half hour late (everyone was ready so I'm not sure why this happened), so all guests were standing in the indoor ceremony room prior to the ceremony. Then when the doors were opened to the ceremony it was a mad rush for all the guests to get outside. The groom and his groomsmen were waiting upstairs in the reception room before the ceremony, and the staff allowed guests to walk into this area before the ceremony started, so that the groom did not have anywhere private to stay before the ceremony. Upon conclusion of the ceremony two large flower arrangements that I had purchased and displayed at the ceremony were gone- they were supposed to have been displayed at the reception but I never saw them again. I also left detailed instructions as to where I wanted all my "items" (pictures, cake servers, napkins, favors, toasting flutes, table assignments, etc) placed, and they ended up in the wrong places. This was all very frustrating as I could not just walk around the ceremony and reception room before the ceremony in my dress to make sure everything was okay. I was counting on my coordinator to follow my instructions and it didn't happen.

Overall I think the Waterview is a great place and I would hold another event there anytime. I think you get your money's worth and the food and atmosphere are really excellent. Just make sure that you communicate expectations to your coordinator and possibly have a friend or family member overseeing the smaller details so you can have a worry-free day!

I hate to give such a low rating to such a beautiful venue with amazing food. So if you are looking for gorgeous pictures and amazing food for a pretty good price, then go for it, it's worth it! Bottom line: my wedding day was fine, I was not upset.

What upset me was the process leading up to my wedding day. I was switched to 4 different coordinators, as all of them were quitting. That upset me and worried me. The final person I had, I can thank him for his help the day of, but he was a flake. I will not name him because I don't think he deserves that, but just two days before my wedding he tells me very non-chalantly "oh we can't get that thing you were supposed to have for your cocktail hour" and it sent me into a tailspin because that ONE item, was very important. In the end, he got it for us, but he just had an attitude about him that showed that he truly could give a crap about us.

It was a hard process working and getting in touch with staff there, so be prepared for it. I do not regret holding my wedding there because in the end it was about the guests and they all loved it.

We had our reception at the Waterview in June. It was around 90 degrees that day. As our reception started I let my coordinator know it was warm in there. I was told that its because people were coming in and out and it would cool down. So I said ok. As time went by it just got warmer in there. People weren't dancing, people had to leave because of the heat. My husband saw water pouring off the roof, and since he use to do heating and air conditioning he knew something was wrong. Then people started over hearing the bartenders saying that the A/C wasn't working in the West wing for over 2 weeks!!!! I was mad that at first I was lied to when they knew it was broken, and then even more upset when I heard its been 2 weeks! I was told by someone who works there that the owners are "cheap" Well their cheapness ruined my wedding. Instead of thanking people for coming, I was apologizing for the heat. I will never recommend this place to anyone.

The Waterview is beutiful, the lake, the grounds great for your pics.
The service was not good at all, ounce we booked the place and made the first payment we didn't hear from them. It was 2 months before the wedding and we didn't have our menu ready, we had to call and call and call before someone call us back. Linda was in our contact and she was not very nice. At first we were told that they didn't need to know in advance our menu selections, so we sent out the invites. When we finally got together to plan our menu, they told us they needed to know, it was really annoying. On our wedding day things were ok, except for the staff specially at the bar, my guest will go and try to order something and the bartender was always gone. For our venitian table we made the really pretty boxes with our manogram so our friends can take some pastries home, the boxes were never put out nobody knew anything about the boxes. Not only we spend money and time is those boxes, but also nobody was able to take any pastries home. The Waterview is georgeous but they need to work a lot on training their staff, the place is pretty expensive so they should provide very good service for the money they charge.
