We held our rehearsal dinner here the night before our wedding. We got a lot of food for our value and were completely satisfied. My father and brother have a food allergy and Will was super accommodating to their needs.

We were apparently supposed to get an ice cream set up along with everything, but there was so much down time after dinner, we just wanted to leave since we were getting married the next day.

But we really have no complaints and would definitely use them again! They were great.

One of the best decisions we made was having our reception at Whitby Castle. Samantha is the person who helped coordinate our wedding and is the main reason we booked with Whitby (aside from the fact that it's a gorgeous castle!). I should also note that Whtiby just had major renovations done before our wedding took place. They added stunning hardwood floors to the ballroom and hallway, moved the bridal suite upstairs (check out the pictures online because it’s unbelievable) and are adding a groom suite. The groom suite wasn’t ready when we had our wedding but we really didn’t care because everything else was so top notch.

When looking for our reception venue we looked at over 20 different locations, including Castle on the Hudson, the Delamar, Inn at Longshore, and so many others. Whitby was, hands down, the best venue for us. It offered a stunning and elegant setting for our wedding, without being pretentious, and Samantha was the most helpful and organized wedding coordinator we could have asked for. We opted not to hire an event planner for the simple reason that we didn’t need one. Samantha was so hands on that it would have been a waste to hire someone else.

The food was outstanding! I can’t say this enough. Chef Saladin met with us before the wedding to go through the menu we wanted. We ended up choosing foods that weren’t on the traditional menu because we really wanted an Italian-style theme to our wedding. Chef Saladin didn’t disappoint! He went above and beyond for us. Even our guest were giving him hugs!

I could gush on and on about how amazing Whitby was but it’s something you need to see for yourself. Definitely set aside some time to see Whitby if you’re thinking of having your wedding in the area. If you want your wedding to be “the best wedding” your friends and family have ever been to, then definitely call Whitby.

We looked at a variety of venues throughout Westchester County and only one venue impressed us! It was the Whitby Castle of course! It only got better from the time we signed our contract. Our maitre d', Samantha was so AMAZING and extremely accommodating in every way imaginable! She answered all of our questions in a timely manor, provided us with suggestions when asked, and helped make our fairy tale wedding to perfection! She helped make our wedding so magical as our guests keep telling us that is was the best wedding ever! All of our guests raved about how delicious the food was, how beautiful the venue was, and how friendly and accommodating the staff was on the day of our wedding. We don't know what we would have done without Samantha! She went above and beyond her duties. The Whitby also remodeled inside the castle, making it absolutely stunning! If you want the most magical fairy tale wedding, then the Whitby Castle is your venue! We wish we could do it all over again :) It was the best and most perfect day of our life!!!!

So glad we chose Whitby for our venue. The venue is beautiful. The ballroom didn't feel like a ballroom at all given the number of windows that let natural light in. The cocktail hour on the deck was relaxed. The staff was attentive and celebrative. Most of all - working with Whitby was easy. Andrew Richter helped us every step of the way - suggesting dishes, timing for the wedding, coordinating with other vendors, and being incredibly responsive with any question we had. The entire staff was both professional and friendly. I highly, highly recommend this venue to anyone considering a venue in Fairfield or Westchester. Your event will be classy, memorable, and fun.

The Whitby Castle is, by far, Westchester's most stunning and unique wedding venue. My husband and I had our wedding reception there in October and it was everything we wanted...excellent food, friendly waitstaff, professional service, gorgeous setting for pictures, and a stress-free mindset for all the planning details. If you are looking for a beautiful location that is different than the typical reception halls, look no further. The Whitby Castle is truly "magical." Your wedding day will be fun and memorable in every aspect!

Whitby Catering is the exclusive caterer of Morris Yacht and Beach Club where we had our reception. Their service is spectacular! Megan who was the assigned sales associate to the venue was very accommodating and easy to work with. My mother who is very picky enjoyed their food and was very happy with their service. The cocktail hour was very enjoyable and the bar was set up very nicely, the servings and portions are generous, the tables were decorated the way I wanted which is very important to me, the servers were very attentive, and they are fairly reasonably priced. They are just one of my favorite vendors!! Just excellent!!

We had our daughter's wedding at Whitby Castle. We cannot say enough about the entire experience. The setting, the Castle itself - they are just magical. It is the perfect venue in so many ways. Andrew Richter, the Director of Sales, is a great person to work with. His advice is terrific, he is not about high pressure, you feel so confident in him as your are planning your event - you just know it will go perfectly. And it certainly did! Cocktail hour on the deck was amazing - the quality and quantity of the hor d'houerves was amazing! The food at the reception was more like fine dining than your typical wedding reception food. The service was impeccable. Even the amazing wedding cake by Lulu's was served on a beautifully decorated plate. Great attention to detail here! The servers were also terrific! Everyone was so nice and pleasant! Can't say enough about Whitby! Do yourself a favor and go check it out!!!
