I would like to thank everyone at Waterside for everything they did for us. We had a rain storm but you guys manage to deal with my groomzilla husband and made it look perfect! For that, we thank you. We appreciate everything.

Without a doubt, we highly recommend Waterside. For couples out there reading this review, you guys won't be disappointed if you pick Waterside as your venue and/or ceremony. They know what they're doing! ;-)

What can we say? WOW! AMAZING! FANTASTIC! WONDERFUL! THOUGHTFUL! The staff at Waterside are amazing...just amazing. Shatal, Miguel and Francis are the BEST in the business and truly made our day a huge success. Not to mention, the entire crew that worked our wedding was just the BEST. Our guests are still talking about what a fantastic time they had and how wonderful the food and service was. As a professional trained chef, I (Bride) was VERY pleased with the food selection, quality and overall taste of everything consumed.

If we could get married all over again, we would choose Waterside hands down. That is why I know we will host another event there in the future.

My husband and I had the privilege of having our wedding at the Waterside on August 2nd and this venue is absolutely amazing. The only request my husband had while searching for the perfect venue, was for it to be on the Hudson with the NYC skyline. We looked at a few places before we went to the waterside and every one of them was overpriced and just wasn't for us. When we went to the Waterside, we knew right away that it was the place for our wedding! We met with Francis the first day and she went over the whole menu and what is included in the price, which let me tell you is EXTREMELY reasonable for what is included and the fantastic view of NYC. They were able to remove things from the menu that we did not want to lower the price. For every other place, the price was set in stone. Also, the food - ohhh myyyy the food!!! It was the best food I have ever had at a wedding!!! We also worked with Shantal and Lesley, who were absolutely amazing and very accommodating.
We received so many outstanding compliments from our guests. Many of which said it was the best wedding they have ever been to and how much they loved the food and the view!!
We can't thank the Waterside enough for making our day perfect!!!

Greeks demonstrate their virtue and goodness by extending their warmth and hospitality (philoneksía) to their guests. In Greek mythology there is a religious obligation to be hospitable to strangers. It is considered a measure of their spirituality and it is believed that treating each guest as if they were a deity in disguise would lead to good and great rewards both here on earth and in heaven.
On July 4th my wife, the former Prima Ballerina of the NJ Ballet and one of the original Balanchine girls, Kathleen Ann McCready and I the Reverend Lawrence Michael Heisler, half Greek on my mother's side, were treated to a level of philonesksia that the Gods of Greek Mythology would have reveled in. We chose the Waterside Catering in North Bergen partially because it's a beautiful wedding and party facility with breath-taking views of the New York skyline and the mighty Hudson River but more importantly because it's owners and management are warm, terrific and sincerely good people who also just happen to be meticulously consummate professionals when it comes to the Art of Catering. These folks really know how to create a major celebration and with a dignified flare. Their entire staff were warm and welcoming and performed at an extraordinarily high level with sensitivity and anticipation. I would be amiss if I didn't share many words about a great kitchen staff and about their chef that is fast becoming known as a culinary giant. The accolades from our guests about our amazing little affair have been overwhelming. Statements about the “incredible food and beverage service,” “the hospitality!” “the beautiful inspired floral environment and that “magical LED wedding room with the panoramic windows of the NY skyline!” Yes, thank you Frances, you said that it would be an extraordinary evening for our guests and you with your talented staff delivered the goods! The overall performance of the Waterside Catering specifically in regard to our wedding...5 DIAMONDS

We had our wedding a few days ago at Waterside and I need to write this review as soon as possible to let everyone know just how FABULOUS Waterside is. When we were looking for a venue with a skyline view we visited several along the hudson. All were very stuffy and overpriced. When we walked into Waterside we knew this was the place we wanted. It is clean, bright, and has a relaxed and welcoming feel.
In the year that we were planning our wedding Shantal was there to help us with ANY questions we had. She was so warm, energetic, and knowledgeable. Her and her staff went above and beyond to make sure our wedding was perfect and it was!! We wanted an outdoor ceremony and they made sure we got one, just before the rain started to pour! They went above and beyond to make sure that we were happy. EVERYONE was raving about the food, I am still receiving calls and emails about how delicious everything was.
Overall- We would HIGHLY recommend Waterside for your wedding! The venue and staff gave us the best day ever and we could never thank them enough =)

My husband and I celebrated our 50th birthdays/ 25th wedding anniversary with a combined party at the Waterside. I can't even begin to tell you how amazing everything was! We have thrown many parties at MANY different venues and my guests were all telling me that this one was the BEST! It started with Shantal who is so professional and knows exactly how to get to know your personality and figure out what will be the best party for you and your guests. I told her I didn't want a lengthy sit down dinner and she set up the room with cocktail tables, couches, and fun furniture so it had more of a cocktail party feel. The view is breathtaking! When my guests walked in to the room, their mouths dropped in awe! I had originally wanted a rooftop bar in NYC for my party and this surpassed it by far! The food was delicious and plentiful! We had timing issues because of guests arriving late and Shantal was so easygoing about "our schedule" and adjusted it by just reading the crowd. MANY times throughout the night, she would ask me if I wanted a glass of wine or a plate of food. I didn't have to think of one thing and could just enjoy my party and my guests! If you are contemplating booking the Waterside, DO IT!!! You will not be disappointed!!!

This is the second time my family is using the Waterside venue for special events. The first was my niece's 1st birthday party (which was like a wedding in itself) and just two weekends ago, I had my wedding there and it couldn't of been more perfect. We had the ceremony outside by the water, the cocktail hour on the second floor where you could see the entire city with great views and then followed with the reception upstairs. My friends, coworkers and families were all raving about how modern and beautiful the space was and THE FOOD!!! I worked with Francis initially and followed up with Chantelle later for all the details. Having already performed so many weddings at the venue, all the minor details you would never think of were like second nature to them. From the timeline of what the day would look like to the outcome, my husband and I couldn't of been more pleased. Thank you so much for an amazing day that will always remain special to us! -Ellen & Sung

Waterside Restaurant was Heaven sent to us! From the minute I called and spoke to Francis, I knew that this was the place that we were going to get married and have our reception. Francis was extremely friendly and professional and we enjoyed working with her and the restaurant during the entire process, along with Leslie and Chantell. Everyone was so friendly and accomodating and experienced. The restaurant and reception/ceremony area is absolutely stunning and breathtaking. Our ceremony was outdoors with the NYC skyline as our backdrop. The cocktail and reception halls were absolutely gorgeous as well. Everything that we wanted and more. The staff was extremely friendly and all of our guests raved about the place and especially the food. I am so happy that we found this place and shared our special day there.

Waterside Restaurant and Catering gave my husband and me what truly was the best day of our lives. Waterside was the first venue we visited when we started planning our wedding, and my husband said right away that it would be the one we would choose. I checked out a few other venues and, with each one, quickly came to the conclusion that none would compare. We were looking for a city view first and foremost, and Waterside provides everything you could ask for in terms of that – from the GWB to the Freedom Tower and everything in between, you can see it all, with only the Hudson River between. Besides the breathtaking view of the city, Waterside also has the greatest, most responsive staff. Frances and Chantal were always available at a moment’s notice with answers to our questions throughout our engagement, and on the day of the wedding they worked so hard, with a smile, to ensure that everything we needed was taken care of. The venue itself is gorgeous – fun, modern, and elegant. We also had our ceremony there, and because of the weather that day it was moved inside. I thought this might disappoint me, but the indoor setup and views from inside are so beautiful that it didn’t faze us one bit. And the food was incredible both in quantity and quality – our guests thought the cocktail hour was dinner because there was so much! There is something for everyone, and it’s all absolutely delicious. Both during and after the reception, so many of our guests told us it was the best wedding they had ever been to; we are still getting compliments on everything. But the real compliments should go to Waterside Restaurant and Catering. From start to finish, it was the perfect day at the best venue we could have imagined.

My wedding at Waterside was amazing and exceeded all of my expectations! Due to the rainy weather the ceremony was inside, which ended up being just beautiful! The guests are still raving about the quantity AND quality of food at cocktail hour; it's definitely the best I have ever seen! My wedding was about 130 people, which was an absolute perfect size for the reception room with plenty of space for dancing. Shantal and the whole team were accommodating, attentive, very prompt in responding and making sure all my requests were taken care of. Thank you for one of the best, happiest, most fun days I could have ever imagined!

I want to say THANK YOU SOOOOO MUCH to Lesley, Shantal and the whole team for making my day one of the most happy, fun, organize and awesome that I could ever have. I had a small wedding 85 people, since day one everything was clear on what I was getting, schedules, and always got a response when I had questions...they gave me few ideas of what to do with the space and at the end everything looked GORGEOUS. Shantal was so attentive on the day of the wedding, she was on top of everything, the waitress/waiters they were great and very professional, everyone was very happy and they cater to everyone with a lot of care. The food... It was GREAT and they made sure I ate... (future bride you need to eat), I was dancing the whole time!!!... I wanted to get the wedding outside, but mother nature didn't cooperate, but I have to say, INSIDE was great! I was not disappointed at all... I still was able to do some shots outside, and I just can't wait to see them. I went to few places looking for a venue, and since I open the door, I said this is the place I want to get married. Thank you again Waterside... I can't wait to celebrate many more parties in your awesome location!

I barely can do anything in life at this point without reading reviews about restaurants, vacation destinations, hotels, etc. and when planning my wedding the first item I focused on (using the internet of course)was finding a venue. I knew I wanted my wedding in Northern New Jersey and I knew I wanted a place that was modern and not the overly traditional styled venue. I read reviews about Waterside and everyone had nothing but great things to say. I am typically suspicious when reviewers have nothing but 5's across the board when rating a vendor but indeed Waterside exceeded all of my expectations and I am so thankful that I choose this venue. So yes they truly deserve 5's across the board. Here are a few reasons why:
1. Lesley Lovett. Lesley was my main point of contact throughout the process. She is friendly, professional, knowledgeable, organized, and ALWAYS got back to me with answers to a lot of random questions I had. That was great and gave me piece of mind.
2. The venue is so pretty. Modern, clean, and views of the Hudson river.
3. The food. My guests are still talking about how amazing the food was. So many options for cocktail hour and the reception. There is nothing wrong with serving chicken at a reception but I did not want chicken! My guest loved all of the other options provided and the portions were plentiful and tasty.
4. Shantal. Shantal was my Maitre D' for my wedding day. I met Shantal before my wedding when I had to drop off my deposit, when I needed place cards, and arrange my tables and she was also always so helpful. On my wedding day she made sure I was ok and got everything I needed which I really appreciated because there was so much going on.
5. The overall staff at Waterside. Again everyone was so helpful and professional. I had to opportunity to meet Frances and Miguel and it really makes a difference when everyone is in the loop with your event and want to ensure that everything goes perfectly. Which it did!

The New Jersey Business Travel Association held their annual Fundraiser Gala at the Waterside Restaurant on Friday, Feb. 7, 2014 and it was a highly successful event due in large part to the wonderful staff and catering skills of the Waterside staff. Owner Frances V. worked in collaboration with the association's gala committee to create a spectacular culinary evening in their beautiful venue with the back-drop of the NYC skyline -- what could be better than that?!! I highly recommend the Waterside for all your catering needs and due to the wonderful experience I had with the Gala, I'm now planning an intimate corporate event in the Waterside Restaurant in April. The friendly and professional staff coupled with the delicious menu and large selection of fine wines and premium liquors makes the Waterside an exceptional destination for any event whether large or small.

We had our wedding at Waterside on December 8th, 2013. It was a dream come true. The ceremony was on the 3rd floor where the room is beautiful with the background of NYC. It was definitely a WOW effect for all of our guests. The room is so elegant that it was perfect for our ceremony pictures. The staff was amazing! Very attentive. I never had to ask them to do anything twice and everything I wanted was ready before I got there. The food was excellent and everyone loved it. You definitely get the best pictures outside. I did daytime, sunset and night pictures and all of them look beyond perfect. Frances (owner of Waterside) was very helpful in all of my wedding planning. She went above and beyond and made our wedding even better than we expect it. I would definitely recommend Waterside Restaurant and Catering for your wedding.

There is absolutely nothing we would change regarding our Wedding Ceremony & Reception ! The owners Fran & Gus & their Professional & Efficient Staff were absolutely wonderful. Our family & friends have been calling us non-stop to compliment us on our memorable wedding & the choice of venue. Our ceremony was extremely romantic, the pictures outside were spectacular, we had an abundant cocktail hour & an exceptional dinner & reception. Our guests were also impressed with the variety & speed of the Bartenders not to mention our exquisite signature drink "French Martini" . We highly recommend Waterside Caterers to anyone desiring an Elegant & Modern location with spectacular views of the New York skyline & high quality of service, food & drinks. Once again we would like to thank Waterside for helping our wedding be so memorable !!!

When my Husband & I were searching for the perfect wedding venue, we had high expectations, but most importantly we wanted to pick a venue where we felt ourselves as well as our guests would be treated like family, & receive outstanding service.
As soon as we walked into the Waterside, my husband & I were blown away by the beautiful layout, the amazing views, & the professional and very friendly staff who greeted us.
We were introduced to Shantel, who was going to be our wedding coordinator, she answered every single question we had with ease.
She was sweet, informative & knowledgeable about every aspect of her position. I knew we were in good hands.
Shantel, & the stunning views of the NY skyline were the sealing deal for me & my husband.

The entire staff was professional, top notch, & paid attention to the slightest detail.
The food was amazing, & the bakery Shantel suggested we use exceeded any expectation we had.
I cant tell you how grateful I am to the staff.
Shantel is such an amazing person, who will take any brides dreams and make it a reality. She was always there every step of the planning process, emailed & called me back promptly, & took all the stress away.
She pays attention to detail and delivers!
I would have been lost without Shantel in my corner. Waterside has a gem and her names Shantel.

If your looking for a venue that will deliver in service, professionalism, a warm and friendly inviting environment with beautiful views and amazing food, The Waterside is a place you need to visit.
I promise you, you will not waste your time, or leave disappointed.
Your in good hands with Shantel and the entire Waterside staff.

Thank you for making my wedding day the most memorable, beautiful and perfect day I will never forget.

My husband and I are truly happy that we chose the Waterside for our wedding. The staff is excellent, Chantel is great, super helpful, sweet and catered to everything that was asked of. The food was amazing!!! Everyone can not stop talking about it! The view is gorgeous! My pics came out gorgeous with the view! Only complaint is, between tables & bars it was a bit tight. Only because I had #200 guests, we needed to accomodate. But if your in the 150's it should be fine. All in all, definetly would recommend this venue! Ps. Theh even hooked us up after the wedding with a vip area in the lounge are, if you and some of the guests aren't ready to go yet. :]

We had my son's Bar Mitzvah celebration in the River Room with Sunday brunch. We had 70 people and the room was perfect! Every detail was accounted for, food was delicious, presentation was beautiful and the selection was very diverse. Service was impeccable! A few of my friends were interested in having their future celebrations at The Waterside! Thank you to all the staff and a special shout out to Lesley, Frances, and Bob for ensuring everything was what I requested! Even the Kosher meals turned out to be the best our Kosher friends ever had! Thank you to Jack and Jose for being the best servers and thank you as well to the Valet staff! My phone is ringing and texts keep coming with compliments of a perfect day! Thank you Waterside for making Matthew's Bar Mitzvah celebration something we will never forget!!

Waterside is a wonderful place to have your wedding! The weather was perfect on our wedding day so we were able to hold the ceremony outdoors. The view is absolutely spectacular and the venue itself is beautiful as well. We worked mostly with Fran during the whole planning process and she really helped us out in menu selection and setting the timeline for the entire evening. My mom gave me a lot of stress during the planning process and every time I spoke with Fran, she calmed me down and made me feel so much better. Shantal was great during the rehearsal and the day of. She kept everything on schedule and she made sure we had drinks and food throughout the evening.

All of our guests had an amazing time and everyone raved about how much food there was and how delicious it was. Many people told us that it was one of the best weddings that they had been to - and that they wished they could have eaten more because everything was so good!

Thanks to Fran, Shantal, Miguel, and everyone else at Waterside for making our wedding even better than we had imagined!

I had my ceremony and reception at the Waterside and it was all I could ever dream of. The staff was beyond fantastic and answered every e-mail, phone call, and were there every time I went to visit. The food was outrageous and they are there for your every move. The price was extremely reasonable for a Saturday wedding in August and you cannot beat the view or the food that they serve. Our ceremony was on a pier that went out into the Hudson and overlooked the New York skyline. It was breathtaking and every picture is just better than the next. The Waterside staff is made up of beautiful people. Frances was remarkable. What a fantastic person. She was there for everything and helped with so much, even when it wasn't her job like talking to some of my vendors. It was such an incredible experience and I am so happy I chose the Waterside for our special day.

We are so happy that we went with Waterside as our wedding venue!!!! We have been getting so many compliments on the venue and would highly recommend this venue to anyone looking to get married in the area. From the moment that we signed the contract, our experience was extraordinary. The staff was very responsive. Francis was amazing and helped us pick out our menu and all the details. We also worked with Shantal who was our wedding day coordinator. She helped us stay on schedule, fed and with plenty of drinks. Our guests cannot stop raving about the food and many have told us that it was the best wedding food they have ever had. The views were also amazing. We were able to have our ceremony outside and the skyline in the background was beyond gorgeous. The setting sun during the reception was also amazing. Also, the lighting during the reception was amazing. The venue had installed a state of the art lighting system which helped set the mood for our party! Thanks Waterside!!

We had our wedding at the Waterside in July. We couldn't have asked for a better experience. Frances, Shantal, and the entire Waterside staff went above and beyond to make sure that our wedding went off without a hitch. This also includes their flexibility with us changing our wedding date a couple of times. They were so understanding and helpful. From the ceremony (including the slight rain shower) to the reception, everything was wonderful. I didn't have to worry about a thing and the staff made sure of it. There was not one moment where I felt like I was being bothered by the staff over details during the night. They had taken care of everything. The whole night was magical. The food was DELICIOUS as well! Our guests are still talking about what a great time they had and how beautiful the venue is. The Waterside made my husband and I feel so special that night and we appreciate everything. If you are looking for a gorgeous venue with caring staff for your wedding, you should absolutely look to the Waterside. - Kathryn and Jesse

I really wanted the views of the NYC skyline for my wedding, after looking at a bunch of other places that were way out of my price range, I found the Waterside! Everyone is so nice, I worked with Frances and Shantal, these ladies are amazing and made me feel like comfortable and they had everything under control. The prices were great for everything that you are getting. The food was great. The Waterside made my wedding day so special, I wish I can do it all over again! Even all my guests raved about everything! the outdoor ceremony, the cocktail hour, the reception, the food, the views... It was perfect! I hope to have more events here =)

We just had our Dream wedding at the Waterside Restaurant and Catering and it was perfect!! Everything was beautiful and they made sure every request was taken care of. There was a threat of a Thunder Storm, but they thought positive and decorated for an outdoor ceremony just in case the weather was good enough for our ceremony. Thankfully the weather held up and the rain did come but after we were busy partying. Shantal, Frances and the rest of the crew are attentive professionals and we will definitely be recommending you to our family and friends. The food was delicious & everything was simply beautiful. Thank you so much for making our event a memorable event!

Love,
Jinet and Kevin

Wow, the story of how everything fell into place is truly a fairytale. Francis, Shantal and their amazing team made our wedding a dream come true. They were so attentive not only to me and my husband, but to all of our guests as well. We had so many compliments about the venue, presentation of the cocktail hour and most importantly of the responsiveness of the staff. If you book your wedding with WaterSide - you absolutely don't need a wedding planner. I was able to book, video & photographer, DJ and my florist from their list of vendor recommendations and they all were able to give us great quality within out budget! Love, love, love the waterside! I will be booking them for future events as well :)

Waterside Restaurant hosted our bridal show. At our bridal show last week at Waterside Restaurant & Catering, the staff, food and facilities were, as always, exceptional. We hold dozens of events each year and each time we are at Waterside we are impressed.

We consistently find that in working with us to set up and run the event the staff is incredibly knowledge, professional, and friendly. This terrific service makes it a pleasure to hold a truly remarkable event.

Each time we have been there, the facilities have been immaculate from the lavish white furnishings to the stunning sheer glass widow walls overlooking the Hudson River and the New York City skyline.

And, the food has been a tremendous hit with every guest. The service staff are incredibly pleasant and the food is plentiful, delicious and lavishly displayed,

Our most sincere thanks to Frances, Lesley, Shantal, George and the entire staff who work so hard time and time again to flawlessly present a wonderful event.

Thank-you, Rich and Lisa Drozd

We were married on April 7, 2013. We were looking for a venue that was reasonably priced with excellent food and great service. We were not disappointed. Throw in the fact that it has a beautiful view of the skyline of New York,was an added bonus. We were pleased that The Waterside had an elevator that allowed our elderly guests to reach both the floor that the cocktail hour would be held and the floor where the reception would be held. We had the pleasure of meeting our wedding coordinator Lesley who was an absolute pleasure to work with. She gave us a tour of the facility, reviewed all of the menu options answered all of our questions. She showed us the fact that a piano was available for us to make use of in the room that the cocktail hour would be held. From the time that we booked the wedding until just before the big day we had dozens of questions that came up and Lesley handled them in a prompt, courteous, and professional way.

On the day of the wedding we were extremely impressed with our maître d Shantal and how attentive she was to every detail. Our guests were greeted with champagne and escorted to the cocktail hour room. Once there they were treated to an assortment of delicious foods some served buffet style but many butler style. Our guests raved about how delicious the food was. They enjoyed their cocktail hour food while a pianist played music in the center of the floor.

The only thing that exceeded the quality of the food in the cocktail hour was the quality of the food in the reception hall. The reception hall was an elegant room with beautiful view of the skyline of New York. Our guests still rave over the wonderful time they had. They rave about the great food, the amazing service and wonderful ambiance. We loved the Waterside so much that we have gone to dinner there a number of times and in particular on our one year anniversary. We highly recommend the Waterside to all couples planning a wedding.

We could not have chosen a better venue for our wedding reception! Not only is the place gorgeous with breathtaking views of the city, but the staff at the Waterside is top notch! Our wedding was the day after a blizzard, when everything could have gone wrong Fran and Shantal made sure everything was fine. They took the stress out of the day for us so we could focus on what was important.

From the start Fran was a pleasure to work with. She helped us make important decisions about seating and food choices. The entire staff was quick to respond with any questions or concerns we had.

On the day of the event everything looked perfect and the day couldn't have been any smoother. Last but not least the food was amazing! Our guests were blown away with the variety and how great everything tasted. We have no regrets choosing the Waterside as our wedding venue! Thank you so much for being part of our special day, we couldn't have done it without you.

We would like to say thank you to Waterside -and the entire staff- for making our daughter' s event a memorable one. We celebrated our daughter's 16th birthday at Warterside and it was an amazing experience. From day one the sales rep Nicole held us by the hand throughout the process until the day of the event. She was extremely helpful and made us feel very confortable. She walked us through the event process very professionaly and was very flexible with us. It was our first -big- event other than your tipical birthday party and Nicole made it flow rather seemless for us. Thanks again to you Nicole and Waterside for such great service.

Nicole helped us book & worked out price & details for us. She was so nice & polite & even took calls & emails on her days off! We met Frances at the tasting & she is a true professional! Treats her guests like gold & delivers everything she says she will. Just great to work with - really eases your mind when you're planning a wedding & have so much on your mind to know that Frances has all the venue details handled. She was with us for the rehearsal, ceremony, cocktail hour and got the reception started. She clearly cannot rest until she's certain that her guests have everything they need down to the last beautiful detail. Maria was our personal maitre 'd throughout the wedding night. She was sooo wonderful! She felt like a friend from the first moment I met her! She was never under foot but always right there when I needed ANYTHING big or small. She's really great! Very hardworking but so sweet about it. We loved every moment of our wedding & the venue choice was a huge part of that. I cannot tell you how many compliments my parents, husband & I got (and are still getting!) on the wedding!! People sent cards & phone calls raving it was the best they'd ever been to :) Waterside is gorgeous - very elegant & modern - & that view is indescribable - 2nd to none! And the food is amazing!! Delicious, sophisticated, beautiful & served with perfection from a very friendly, skilled wait/bar staff that goes above & beyond. All of our guests truly enjoyed every moment & we're so grateful for that. I highly recommend Waterside!! You will never regret having your event there! I feel it is a gorgeous perfect venue and then to have the delicious food and impeccable service and support - what more could you want?!! Thank you so much Nicole, Frances, Maria & everyone at Waterside. You made the planning experience so easy and the actual day so perfect! We will never forget it & we will definitely be back!

From the moment we visited Waterside and saw the amazing rooms and breath-taking views, we knew this was the place to celebrate the most important day of our lives. We committed to the Waterside not only because of the views, but the outstanding quality of service we received from the Waterside staff. Especially working with Lesley and Frances throughout our engagement has made our planning experience stress-free as they were very helpful in answering all our questions and fulfilling all our needs. They were so professional and welcoming the entire duration of our planning to the emails that were responded promptly and to making our special day smooth sailing.

On the day of our wedding, the staff executed our wedding day with perfection! We were blown away by how beautiful the ceremony and reception was elegantly set up. They went above and beyond our expectations! A special thanks to our Maitre D', Shantal, who was supportive and accommodating to our vendors. She brought us samples of food being served to ensure we were able to experience all of the delicious cocktail items that were offered to our guests.

An entire review could be devoted to the food that was served. The quality of the food is just as impressive as the quantity. Everyone loved our signature drinks (Jets Mania & Big Blue), the delicious Viennese desserts, the attentive service, and all of the little details. The staff was extremely courteous to all of my guests and we were very impressed on how accommodating and quickly they returned with our requests.

Our guests are still raving about our wedding-from the decor, to the food, to the staff as by far the BEST venue they had ever been to. Our entire engagement experience and wedding day was made PERFECT by Lesley, Frances and the rest of the Waterside team. Thank you so much for being a part of our wedding that was beyond anything we ever imagined!

I can not thank you guys enough for all the help with everything..Beginning to end you guys were there! All our guests were amazed by the venue, the food, and the staff.. You guys aimed to please and it showed, my parents were so amazed by the help as well making it a stress free day for them!!! Allen and myself could not be happier! I can literally sit down and thank each one of you for all the help because each one of the girls helped us sooo much. I will however just praise a little more (girls don’t take offense hahahaha) for Shantal because she had to deal with me thru the actual wedding day hahahaha…but she was on point and was always making sure we were okay..
During and After our Honeymoon people would call and send us emails letting us know how great the wedding was and the venue…

We just received pictures from the photographer and were going to either stop by or send you pictures of the wedding showing the venue..(They came out spectacular)..Most likely next week we will pass by!

Thank you all once again!!

FYI-My parents were so thrilled by the place they wanted to know information about your NYE already..so if there is any information please let me know! 

I recently had my wedding at the Waterside on October 12, 2012 and couldn't be happier with my choice of venue! Shantal and rest of the team at the Waterside did an amazing job, the food was beyond fantastic. Their attention to detail was top notch. All of our guests have been raving about it....the view of NYC, the food and outside ceremony site really made it a dream wedding that was elegant, classy and fun! I highly recommend this venue for your wedding, especially if your guest list is in the 90-150 ppl range. Great venue!

As the father or the bride in the KUSHNER_LAROCCA wedding I dont normally do after the fact surveys or reviews....However my wife asked me to follow up on her review and add some comments of my own....First, she told me that she intended to give all 5's but something went wrong when she did the revieww...OK, all fives...My thoughts are these...If you are looking for a cite with super ambience,its on the Hudson River people....With out of the ordinary wedding food...ie. They offer suckling WHOLE pig, LOL, with a GREAT STAFF then maybe should should give this place a shot.....
If your NOT inclined to the above , go someplace else and have a BLAH affair!!!

I do not even know where to start! Frances, George and Shantal really made my wedding day the best day of my entire life (I mean it). They took care of absolutely everything. My vision was executed to perfection. The entire wedding process was a piece of cake with them. There was never any doubt in my mind that they would provide me with nothing but the best. They were even flexible enough to let my cocktail hour run an extra 30 minutes while I was stuck in traffic on my way there!! And not once did they ask for an extra cent beyond our contract.

Brides to be, this is the place to have your wedding not only because of the staff and service but also because our guests raved about how amazing the views were. One of our guests said they had never seen views of NYC like the ones they saw at our wedding. We were also lucky enough to have fireworks at our wedding which was an added surprise that literally made me cry.

Can't say enough good things about my experience there, a family run business with true dedication to what they do. So glad we choose this venue.

The Waterside was the perfect venue for our reception. My husband and I only looked at two venues with the Waterside being the first. After visiting the second venue, we knew right away that nothing else would compare to the Waterside. Not only does the Waterside offer you an amazing backdrop, but the rooms themselves are beautiful. The room on the third floor comes complete with built-in Flat Screen TVs and LED lighting, all things that would normally cost extra. In addition to the venue being wonderful, the food was incredible as well. All throughout the evening and into the next day, our guests continued to let us how much they enjoyed the wedding. Futhermore, what really made the day perfect was the entire team at Waterside. From day one they were extremely responsive any time I sent them an email. They made me feel like everything would be perfect and it was! Thank you for making our day beautiful and a for the great party!

My husband, Dean, and I celebrated our wedding at Waterside on August 4, 2012. It was only a year ago that we walked into Waterside and realized that it was where we wanted to share our love and happiness with our friends and family. Meeting Fran and her family, along with Bob, was a monumental moment for us. From that day on, every detail for our wedding was handled in such a professional and personal way. The food, décor, ambiance, and service were all more than what we could have ever expected. Even during the busiest of times, every person at Waterside made us feel as though we were family to them . They are truly passionate about what they do and made every moment leading up to our wedding along with the reception a cherished one. Our friends and family continue to remind us that they cannot stop talking about the memories of our wedding. Even 4 months after, we continue to visit Waterside for dinners and family celebrations; it is truly a remarkable venue and the people there continue to make us feel special with every visit. Thank you for everything!! –Dean and Elizabeth

Every single detail was taken care of, and on the day of the wedding Maria was at my side the whole time, Frances was there checking everything and we felt extremely comfortable and I would not change a single thing. I will add the food is also delish and we recieved many many compliments from our guests about Waterside, the food and of course the impeccable service.
I would recommend Waterside to anyone for any occassion from a wedding to even a bridal shower, it is amazing!

We just had our wedding reception at the Waterside this June and it was amazing! Planning a wedding, especially in 3 months as we did, can be overwhelming. Fran, the owner, gave us complete peace of mind from the moment we met to the final moment of our event. With her level of expertise, professionalism, service and kindness, we knew we were in good hands at all times. The team we worked with (Lesley, Shantal, Stephanie) were also very accommodating and responsive, ensuring that we had a perfect event with all of our personal details and touches executed flawlessly. Even our most finicky guests said it was "the best wedding" they've been to! The venue itself is modern yet elegant with beautiful NYC views. The floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking the river and the lovely cocktail hour presentation was truly impressive. The food was not only plentiful; it was excellent and well-received by all. The seafood display and roast pig were incredible and appreciated by our guests, who could not seem to get enough. Everyone left pleased, which made our day even happier. Overall it was truly a wonderful experience -- we could not have wished for anything more. Thank you to Fran, Gus, Dina and the entire staff at Waterside for making our day so memorable and hassle-free and for continually striving to stay on top of their game! We would definitely recommend the Waterside without reservation!

We were nothing but pleased with Waterside and the super friendly team that works there. From start to finish we could not have asked for a better experience. Our wedding was perfect. Frances, one of the owners, took the time to make us feel like we were their most important customers. She's very warm and made us feel extremely welcome and comfortable each time we stopped in for meetings. Shantal, our wedding coordinator, made sure that our event went off without a hitch. She's the sweetest. She made sure that all of our requests were met and had everything organized for us. The space, with the view of NYC, is incredible and the food matched that amazing view. All of our guests have not stopped talking about how amazing the wedding was and how much they loved Waterside. You get a lot for your $. We are so happy we picked Waterside.

Jeffrey, my now husband, and I were in search for a stylish and modern reception venue overlooking the NYC skyline for our June 9, 2012 nuptial. We inquired with Liberty House, Chart House, Hyatt Regency in Jersey City, and Harborside, but Waterside was the only venue that offered a competitive and impressive wedding package. We dealt with Bob and Frances throughout the whole wedding planning period. They were both very sincere, warm, and professional to work with. Frances especially listened to our concerns and gave us helpful suggestions in selecting the menu. The mango pineapple cosmopolitan, our signature drink, was a hit! Her experience in the catering industry was assuring and we knew we chose the right reception venue. The new renovations made throughout the entire building made the venue even more beautiful. The views of the NYC skyline was spectacular throughout the daytime and evening hours. Our family and friends were not only impressed with the atmosphere but also with the delicious food, fabulous lighting, and attentive service received from the entire Waterside staff. Special thanks to Maria, our maitre d', who was courteous and accommodating to our other vendors. We are looking forward to working with the entire Waterside crew again and hosting more occasions at Waterside in the future!

We are sooo grateful for the service we received from The Waterside Restaurant and Catering! My husband and I had our wedding reception there the Saturday of Memorial Day weekend.

The views of the city were amazing during the day and night. We used the second floor for the cocktail hour and our guests were impressed instantly by the appearance and the views. Our reception was held in the third floor ballroom. We had purple uplighting which were absorbed perfectly into the white sheer drapes on the walls. We were very pleased with the decor.

The entire experience was absolutely perfect and we could not ask for anything more.

Frances was the first person we met with when we had our appointment and were looking at reception venues. She was very warm, welcoming and it was clear that she is very passionate about her restaurant which is part of what attracted us to the venue.

Throughout the year I kept in contact with Shantal who was VERY responsive and helpful as well as Lesley. They answered all of our questions and were there every step of the way. Marie was our Maitre d' for the night and made sure we had whatever we needed before we could even think about it.

The food was also outstanding!

Thank you Fran and the Waterside fam for making our wedding day everything we had hoped it would be and more!

I could not recommend Waterside enough!! They were absolutely incredible and their goal is to make your wedding day all you have dreamt of. The incredible staff at Waterside made our wedding such a wonderful day to remember!! Our family and friends have declared it a "fairy tale wedding" and have been raving about the food and the beautiful views ever since. Waterside was so helpful and gracious throughout the entire planning process and went above and beyond to make our day extra special. They helped an out-of-state bride plan one of the most important days in her life with as little stress as possible. They exceeded our expectations and we are so thrilled that we chose to create some of the most special memories of our life at Waterside! We will definitely be back to reminisce for some anniversary dinners...

There are no words to describe this venue except Pure Excellence. I have never seen such a more beautiful and well organized facility in the 10 years I have been in the restaurant industry. The food was phenomenal, the venue was clean New York chic, and the staff was top notch. If I could give an overall grade with my experience, I would say A+! From the moment I stepped into the venue and I shook hands with the owner, it was hook line and sinker. And now I can say after working with them for over a year, everyone at The Waterside Restaurant and Catering are my life long friends and even more so family.

Frances is an amazing woman to work with for all of the events we hold at Waterside. She makes it as simple as contacting her giving her the name of the party, how many guests, and an idea of what we want food wise, along with a color scheme, and she adds all of the bells and whistles to make each and every one special in it's own way. Can't wait to head back their next year for our events.

We held our daughter's wedding reception at The Waterside Restaurant. The entire experience was wonderful! The venue has a spectacular view of the Manhattan skyline and everything has been recently renovated. The food is outstanding, highest quality and abundant. Everything about this place is first class. The Waterside staff is the number one reason to use this venue. They anticipated all of our needs and exceeded our expectations for service and attention to detail. They provided two maitre d's for the reception night who catered to the needs of the bride, groom, and us. We would wholeheartedly recommend this venue to anyone considering a New York area wedding. You will not find a better venue.

Waterside is the absolute BEST! Frances and her team went above and beyond all of our expectations. Our guests still can't stop talking about the Waterside. The food, from the cocktail hour to the desserts was amazing. The view of NYC is of course spectacular which lends to an ambiance that is second to none. I can't say enough about Frances, Shantal and everyone at Waterside. Our day was PERFECT. We will always recommend Waterside.

As a little girl you have dreams of having this amazing beautiful wedding, well the Waterside in North Bergen made that dream come true. Their place sets the ambience, the elegance and class that left my guest in awe. They "Thanked" me for a fabulous night. My co-workers said it was so great they could not stop smiling.. The food was great and the view of the NYC Skyline is unbelievable, very romantic.... the service is in a league of their "own", they were constantly asking the guest if they need anything... a drink, a cup of coffee or just a smile. Last but not least if you get the pleasure to work Mr. Frances Vagias, you wll be blessed as she will ensure you that your night is the most special and memorable event and because of her you will feel so that night. Her graciousness and her ability to just make you feel all will be ok is wonderful. I would recommend this venue to anyone in a heart beat and know that they too will feel the same.

My husbaund and I just got married at the Waterside- we had the most unbelievable experience with the staff and the resturant itself. Throughout our entire wedding experience with the staff at the Waterside it has been nothing but easy,accomodating and pleasureable. They provided every detail and every moment that would happen the night of the wedding. I could not have asked to work with better people than the people at the Waterside. They make you feel that you are the only person that they care about and that your day is the most special to them just as if it were there own. The place speaks for itself- the rooms are beyond any words that would be fitting to describe it- its just that remarkable. The food is not your typical catering- its just like the resturants and is out of this world. The staff at the waterside gives you a wedding that will be talked about way after the wedding is over (people are still talking about our own wedding). I was just in awe of how wonderful the people are there and a thank you to the staff just doesnt seem to be enough. I am looking forward to having so many more occassions with the Waterside in the future- as for my husbaund and I would not want to have any other occassions anywhere else! Its just that remarkable.

My Wedding Reception was more then I could have ever dreamt! Frances and her crew of fabulous people made my day an event that people are still talking about! From the first day I stepped into the Waterside, I knew it was where I would have my wedding. Everyone was more then helpful and bent over backwards to give myself and my husband the best day ever. The food is unbelievable and the portion sizes beyond generous! The people are extremely friendly, helpful and do everything in their power to make your dreams come true. The price was fantastic! I never thought I could have my city view, wonderful food, and a great venue at such a reasonable price. If you are looking for the wedding of your dreams with a beautiful view of the city, food that is unbelievable, a gorgeous newly redesigned venue and people that will make you feel like you are the only Bride they have ever had their focus on!!!!! You MUST get married at The Waterside! I will continue to go back for dinner, brunch and will most likely have another event at the Waterside. I highly recommend them for any event you may have!!!!

I recently attended a wedding at Waterside I was one of the bridesmaids, & I must say it was wonderful! The place looked amazing, the set up was great and everything the bride had asked to be done was done perfectly. The LED lighting added such a difference in the two rooms. We were on the second floor for cocktail hour and third floor for reception and the 2 TVs in the 3rd floor with the live camera was so cool. The staff, there was 2 Maitre Ds were on top of everything. The food was great. Overall I had such a great time! I recommend it to everyone!

My husband and I visited so many venues but could not find one with both superb food and a beautiful location until we saw Waterside. In addition, the the professionalism exhibited was excellent. From the staff, to Maitre'D to management, they were attentive to every detail, very responsive and accomodating. We look forward to returning for the next special occasion.

We stumbled upon this hidden gem, just 2 days after we got engaged. It was perfect for us. Had everything we dreamed of, Skyline, Hudson River, Atmosphere, Great food and drinks. We worked with everyone but mostly Frances. Each of them were great. Frances made me feel at ease every time we went there for a meeting. It was the best decision we could of ever made for our wedding! I am still getting compliments on how nice everything was. The cocktail hour was amazing along with reception. We also had our ceremony here as well and all I can say is A++++. Thank you for making our wedding GREAT! R&D

Waterside is definitely a hidden treasure in New Jersey. We did a lot of research online and we finally found what we were looking for…Waterside! It was the only location we went to look at and immediately booked our Wedding Day 11/18/11! The Venue is Amazing it has everything we envision close in NJ but yet you have NYC skyline view. It has modern chic ballrooms with excellent food and drinks. We had our ceremony on the 1st floor with the beautiful skyline of NYC in the background. Our reception was in the 2nd floor which is so modern & chic. We will look back many years and be happy we picked Waterside. We have beautiful photos for memories to last. In addition, the staff is amazing! Bob helped us book our wedding and Frances is so sweet, she made it her priority to make sure everything was perfection for our dream wedding! Our Maitre’Ds Shantel & George were so sweet and attentive!
We loved our wedding and highly recommend the Waterside.

Waterside is beautiful, an absolutely gorgeous place to have a wedding. Our guests couldn’t stop talking about how amazing the setting is. Everyone was great to work with, especially Frances. She was fantastic and extremely helpful!! We were supposed to get married the weekend of Hurricane Irene and Waterside allowed us to reschedule everything for the following Friday. It worked out perfect – of course with the help of the Waterside. We can’t thank them enough for making our day so special!!

I can't say enough about my experience with Waterside. My husband and I got married on a hot summer afternoon at the edge of the Hudson River, followed by an amazing cocktail hour outdoors and an elegant reception on the 2nd floor with floor to ceiling windows overlooking the greatest city in the world. I HATE reception halls that have no windows and you feel like you're celebrating in a cave! This venue was the complete opposite. My guests still talk about it when I see them and the wedding topic comes up. The package included was outstanding (especially compared to local competing venues). The food was great and the service was even better. I worked with Shantal throughout the entire process including the day of our wedding. She was responsive throughout, professional, friendly, helpful, and SO accommodating to our requests. The day of, she was there constantly asking if we needed anything and how she could make our day more special. I saw her smiling face (without being intrusive) throughout the entire event making sure things were running smoothly. She genuinely cared. I highly recommend Waterside (and Shantal) to anyone researching a wedding venue - believe me you and your guests will never forget your experience!

I can't say enough great things about the Waterside! Frances was amazing from the first day we met her when we were looking for places. She gave us a great deal and made sure that everything was planned to perfection.

The food was amazing from beginning to end. The servers were amazing as well and there wasn't a time that my husband and I did not feel like we were at our wedding since everyone was so great.

Frances suggested the majority of the other vendors that we went with for our wedding and everything ran very smoothly.

We took pictures at the Waterside during the cocktail hour. They have a great view of NYC and while we were taking pictures, the servers made sure that the bridal party had food from the cocktail hour and gave us water.

The bartenders were also amazing and so much fun.

Frances definitely made sure everything was perfect!

Our experience from the moment we first stepped into Waterside was amazing. My husband and I could not have picked a more perfect place for our wedding. Fran was great in listening to every detail we wanted for our wedding and made sure her staff executed them accordingly. It helped to make the wedding planning experience a pleasant one. Pricing for everything was very reasonable, especially considering we had a ton of food, superb service, and the NYC skyline as the backdrop for our ceremony and reception.

My guests raved about the gorgeous view as well as the wonderful food. Shantal, our Maitr D was amazing on the day of making sure myself as well as the bridal party were well taken care of.

I highly recommend hosting your event at Waterside. You will not regret it.

Waterside was amazing in making our wedding a dream come true!
Shantal is an excellent manager who helped to accomodate all our needs, we did have an unusual wedding and the staff were very flexible and open to discuss ideas and plans. The process was smooth and the atmosphere is friendly which is very helpful to calm down a nervous bride; )
The only thing I would point out as an area for improvement is communication. Since we had some unusual menu and reception ideas and our manager was not able to be there for the wedding day, we had to repeat the same details to everyone who was involved separately as though the information was not passed among the staff. Apart from this minor comment, everything was perfect. The view is amazing, our guests were so impressed. The food was good and there was plenty of it, which was extremely important for us and our guests.
Mu husband and I would like to thank Shantal, Francis and Pamela for working with us and making our day memorable, beautiful, and special! I would definately recommend Waterside for romantic and classy gorgeous wedding

Our children just got married at the Waterside on 9/9/12. I do have to say at first I was a bit skeptical but the affair surpassed my wildest expectations.

We first signed with Bob whom was very accomodating and a gentlemen. We finalized with Fran, whom really knows her stuff and knows the catering business.

Our matre'd was Shantel whom was the best to work with and easy to get along, starting from two weeks before to the night of. Shantel and Fran were there to see the affair went off without a glich and it certainly did. From figther jets flying over us at the ceremony to fireworks from Hoboken, we couldn't have even planned this to happen!!!!

Our guests through the whole affair kept coming over to us and the bride and groom saying this was one of the best weddings they had ever been to.

Thank you again to Bob, Fran, Shantel and even Guss!!! for making us so proud and happy on our children's special day. We would recommend you highly to anyone we know!!!

From, the Kushner and LaRocca families

Waterside was absolutely fantastic. I walked in back in March and were able to give me a date to have my wedding reception in September. They were responsive with their e-mail communication and gave me a great catering option. Even the taste test was fantastic! Shantal was great during the reception although I barely had enough time to really sit and enjoy the food and our company as our photographer's were very busy with us.
I loved the fact it was right close to home and at a close distance to our ceremony. The view is great, a lot of our guests were very pleased and the fact it is wheelchair accessible was a plus as my brother is in a wheelchair.
All the guests were very happy with the food, view and space.
The fact that they were accomodating to my small up to 60 guest wedding list of invites was a plus for me as most places require at least 100 people. They just divided the room for me for cocktail and dinner. The place itself is beautiful and doesn't need very much decor. I've recommended this place to others for future events, and everyone loved it from the pictures. I really had no complaints except Jorge and I didn't really get to enjoy the food since we were constantly being taken away for pictures or activities. Otherwise, no complaints. We will definitely be returning back at least for dinner every year to celebrate!
All the best to Waterside Restaurant and Staff!

Beautiful location, as well as great food and service. Can be expensive. I suggest afternoon wedding to save money.

Our wedding reception was beautiful, our friends & family thought the quality & quantity of food was perfect, along with the beautiful view. The only complaints we have were about the service, our guests complained that they didn't have enough time to enjoy their dinner because the waiter cleared the tables too quickly. As for me & my husband.. We were both VERY disappointed with our matradi (shantel) Not once did she come up to us & ask us if we needed ANYTHING!! She greeted us at our entrance & said her goodbye's at the end of the night, she didn't make any effort to ask us anything the entire night. Our Dj was the person who coordinated everything for us, while she sat there & took pictures of the belly dancers. As a matter of fact she allowed our entertainers to use our bridal suite for a changing room.. My husband & I went to the rm so that I can change into my 2nd gown & found the 2 dancers in there. We had our personal belongings in that rm, and were very disappointed to find out it was Shantel who allowed them to use it. I thought the waterside was a beautiful place, the food was spectacular, and the view was breathtaking.. We thought Francis & bob were very professional & kind.. We also thought Lesley was nice to work with.. The only major complaint was the food being rushed & the horrible matradi who gets paid to do nothing.

We chose the Waterside for various reasons: location/view, the amazing food and their willingness to work with us under certain circumstances. Everyone was very willing to please and very accommodating. After a couple of initial communication glitches (I live out of town and my daughter lives in NJ) things seemed to go smoothly. The ceremony went well and the maitre d (Shantal) was very helpful and friendly. Everyone raved about the wonderful food and the venue itself. Our only complaints are: some of the tables linens were soaked at dinner and some of the food was served cold. When I asked why the linens were wet, there was no explanation. At the end of the evening, my husband and I stayed after all the guests were gone in order to pack the remaining centerpieces, linens, candle cylinders which belonged to our daughter and take them with us. We were told to just leave everything, someone would pack all our belongings for us and to make sure to return first thing the next day to pick up our things. We left behind plastic storage boxes to make it more convenient. The next morning we returned to get our things and went home happy that everything had been packed for us. With so many out of town guests, it took us a couple of days before we could go through our things. Unfortunately, we discovered we were missing several items some of which were the remaining personalized centerpieces (which were and made especially for the wedding) and the 36 candle cylinders. When I contacted them to find out where they were, I was told they didn't have them. I texted the owner and she said they only had 30 of the 36 cylinders but no idea what had happened to the remaining centerpieces. When I returned to pick up the cylinders I was told there were only 20. I expressed my disappointment and was told someone would get in touch with me to explain what had happened. It is now a month later and I have not heard back.

I had a few issues with The Waterside:
The Waterside staff called me and wanted to change rehearsal time 5 days before wedding.
Arriving at the Waterside before my ceremony, I was told that neither I nor my bridal party could have access to the bridal suite, despite being promised the suite upon paying my deposit.
I brought boxes over the day before with everything labeled & where they should go. No one put bubbles on chairs for my wedding ceremony as instructed. It would have taken 5 minutes to do. If this was not something they were willing to do, they should have told me.
Before the bridal party was introduced the waiter was taking orders of the food, since my bridal party was not seated at the table they could not choose from the menu & had to go by the waiter description. When asked the choices, they were told, "beef, chicken, or fish". I was embarrassed. For a venue that prides themselves on their food & presentation, the description from the person taking the order was what you would expect from an airline flight attendant.
I was told by Francis that they had white pillars I could use to put flowers on for the ceremony which I decided to use. A month before the ceremony I called to confirm that I could use these pillars & was told they broke & I would need to come up with something on my own. I paid my florist to rent columns for flowers I had ordered. When I arrived at my wedding ceremony, no flowers were on pillars. I was told the wind blew 1 column down & the flower pot fell/cracked. The staff has my # and should have notified me of what happened.
They were also missing our signature drink at the reception.
Despite this, we had an amazing time at our wedding. The food was delicious, the cocktail hour can not be rivaled, the views were beautiful, & our guests had a great time. Also, I always got prompt responses to my planning inquiries. I am thankful for all they did to make our day special, I just wish certain things were handled differently.
