My husband and I were very happy with our wedding here. We felt from the time we booked up until our wedding day the staff was very helpful. We had alot of family from the city and had so may compliments on how much fun our wedding was. We loved the ceremony space right on the water, it was breathtaking. My bridal attendant and Matre'd were amazing on our wedding day and the girls in the office were awesome!! The food was delicious, the dj played the best mix of salsa and top 40, everyone was dancing. Could not have picked a better place! Thank you so much!!!!!

Windows on the Lake was absolutely amazing!!! Then venue itself is beautiful and the outside landscape was perfect for pictures! The entire staff was such a pleasure I could go on and on about them. Frank Amantia was our banquet manager and also our ceremony officiant and he was just great from start to finish. He was a true gentleman and very professional and wrote a beautiful ceremony for us, which he also made sure I had the outside ceremony I always dreamed of. He made me feel very confident in all of them to make the day the best day ever and they did. Danielle the manager was so helpful and efficient, she really made the whole process very smooth for me. The day of my wedding was perfect from beginning to end. They all make me you feel like family there. Frankie the maitre d was truly the best! He was so on top of everything and made sure everything was perfect. My bridal attendant was also amazing, I wish I remembered her name because I would love to personally recognize her because she was fantastic!! By my side all night and made sure I was good at all times. The food was great, the décor was great, they really listened to everything I wanted and made it happen. Windows was perfect! My wedding was like a dream!

I had and amazing wedding. The staff there are all amazing. They are so knowledgeable and helpful. It was a real pleasure working with them. I truly would recommend anyone to have a wedding there. The day went on perfect. The only thing I would have changed was that it was very hot the day of my wedding and my guests were sweating so cocktail hour should have been in doors. They accomodated everyone by having everyone sit inside after they go the food.

Perfect place for a wedding reception! The quality of the service was tip-top. They guided us through the whole process. No pressure sales. If you decided to go with someone else for dj or photography, they were glad to help arrange if need be. The value we got was far beyond our expectations. In the two weeks prior to the wedding, you only deal with the owner, Frank. He gives you his phone numbers and tells you to call any time for any reason. We didn't need to, but if was really nice to know if we needed to. Best value for the price! Very professional staff. They took care of everything!

Windows on the Lake surpassed our wildest expectations. Frank, our salesman, felt like family and whenever we stopped by or called in he made us feel like we were the most important part of his day. The maitre'd (Frankie) and bridal attendant (Besty) were phenomenal and delivered a flawless evening. Windows on the Lake delivered on EVERYTHING they said they would and even threw in some extras. Here's what really impressed us. All along we planned an outdoor ceremony but of course on the Big Day Mother Nature didn't want to cooperate. Reluctantly, we decided three hours before the event to bring it inside. Then, an HOUR before the ceremony Frankie came and said the weather cleared and ground dried enough to move outside. We jumped at the chance and the Windows crew created an entire outdoor ceremony from scratch. We started on-time and Frankie kept the entire evening moving very smoothly. From beginning to end we felt like we were in great hands. Windows on the Lake offers event services and we used their DJ who did a TERRIFIC job! The food and wedding cake were, hands down, every bit as good as they said it would be. The whole evening featured a parade of food that seemed never ending - complete with complimentary seconds for anyone still hungry after dinner. We went with a strawberry shortcake for the cake and it was delicious.

What initially drew us to Windows on the Lake was the fact that it is located Lake-side! We originally were going to do a destination wedding, but unforseen events made us go local. The scenery from Windows on the Lake was perfect. When we arrived we immediately noticed the Hibiscus in season and that put a big cheesy grin on my face (me & my husband are from the Islands). Then we stepped inside the Venu and noticed the green carpeting which put another big smile on my face (my favorite color is green). Upon meeting our contact, Frank A., I don't think I/we stopped smiling until we said our goodbyes, right after signing our contract on the spot. Frank is personable, easy going, helpful, accommodating, and so humorous. Windows on the Lake itself did not disappoint...we were pleased with everything. The outdoors color and the color of the ceiling in the Reception room was the same as our wedding color...a beautiful BLUE hue. Frank was with us every step of the way until we waved our goodbyes at the end of our wedding night. Everything was PERFECT: the ambiance, the service, the food, the staff and Frank...we were pleased on all aspects of our wedding. They ROCK! We will surely recommend as often as a wedding occasion arises.

Choosing Windows on the Lake was the best decision I could have made. We did a lot of shopping for a Catering Hall, and had lots of trouble finding one where I would be the only Bride. At Windows on the Lake I was the only bride, and my wedding was right on the water! I used their "Complete Wedding Package", and again it was the best thing that I could have done. All of my Vendors were booked at the same time, and they were the same Vendors that we had seen in many of the other catering halls that we visited. Every Vendor was professional and did an amazing job! We didn't have to spend months shopping and comparing prices etc.

I was dealing with Anthony the owner throughout the entire planning process, and he was great. Without his advice and insight my wedding wouldn't have been as perfect as it was. Its obvious that the entire staff at Windows is as professional as they get, as every detail of my wedding was attended to with care and perfection.

Thank you Windows on the Lake for helping us to have the most perfect day of our lives. We love you!

Where do I begin? Windows on the Lake gave us the most perfect wedding that any bride and groom could hope for. It was truly a fantasy wedding come true. From our ceremony which was held right on the water followed by our amazing cocktail hour, every detail was more than attended to. The food was amazing and all of our guests kept talking about how much food there was and how amazing each dish tasted. Our Bridal Attendant made sure that my husband and I got to taste everything from cocktail hour, and she took care of our parent,s and our entire bridal party while we were taking pictures.

Our Maitre D Frankie was amazing. He made us feel like kings and queens, from the moment we arrived. He went above and beyond, to make sure that everything was beyond our expectations. He even made sure that we sat down to eat, something that brides and grooms rarely get to do. Our dinners were perfect, and our guests are still talking about how good all of the food was.

From start to finish they made our experience nothing less than incredible. We would recommend WIndows on the Lake to anyone who wants their dream wedding to become a reality. Frank, Ron, Anthony and the amazing staff there will make sure of it! They treated us like family and we are so thankful, that we now consider them like family.

We had our wedding at Windows on the Lake, and we had a wonderful time. The outdoor ceremony by the lake was absolutely beautiful, romantic, and picturesque. We heard siren during our ceremony because it was next to a road, but it didn't ruin our ceremony at all. It has a nice small garden for cocktail hour. The Rainbow Room was big enough to comfortably fit 220 people (I wouldn't recommend anything more than that). The décor was a bit old school, but the overall ambience was very nice and cozy. Some of our guests stayed behind for half hour just to take pictures by the lake.
I didn't get to eat much, but our guests said the food was good. There was only one wedding at a time, so we got full attention from the crew. The Maitre'D, Bridal Attendant, and Sales Manager were very helpful. They definitely made our special day go smoothly. We love this place and would definitely recommend it.

The Maitre'D, Bridal Attendant, and Sales Manager were very helpful. They definitely made our special day go smoothly. We love this place and would definitely recommend it. Read less

First off This venue is absolutely gorgeous! Everything I wanted the staff made happen, They even had fireworks for our grand entrance! The staff handled every aspect of my wedding, which relieved all the stress and probably the reason i didn't turn into a bridezilla lol! The filet mignon was so amazing we had to come back for more the next day at their sunday brunch and i am looking forward to coming back in the holidays! Thank you Windows on the Lake!

They really surprised me on the wedding day. Very good service.They made everything so nice. They put together the centerpieces for us in the exact way I wanted them. Food was awesome.The cake looked amazing also tasted amazing. They handed out extra food to the guests. The guests said it was very classy that they did that and it was probably the best wedding they had been to. The bridal attendant always asked if I needed anything. The only inconvenience I experienced was that they couldn't accept the second and third payments by credit card. They allowed personal check for my second payment, and only bank check or cash for the final payment. However, they were very understanding that it was an inconvenience and basically gave us an open timeline to make all of our payments. Overall, I was happy with them, so were all the guests.

Our wedding day was absolutely perfect. We had some difficulty prior with some details; however, we knew if we talked to Danielle, everything would be fine. They actually still owe us a very small amount of money because we paid for two adults when they were children, but we let it go because everything else that day worked out great. The only other complaints I have is that they weren't very respectful of our ceremony that was faith-based. During the rehearsal, the owner actually joked about us wanting to have communion with our pastor during the ceremony, and they misplaced our communion wine glass that day. Also, the owner forgot about our rehearsal (good thing they didn't have anything else going on). Overall, it was perfect because our day was perfect...and we received amazing compliments about the food, location, scenery, and whole atmosphere of our day wedding.

Everyone raved about how much food and how good the food was. They all loved the view of the lake and it was great for taking pictures. Our banquet manager was very organized and had everything in order for us.

Windows on the Lake turned out to be an incredible place for us to have our wedding. We had a little back and forth with the owner, Anthony, regarding what we wanted versus what could actually be done on a few matters, but on the actual day, the maitre'd and bridal attendant were both so incredible that any reservations we had were gone completely! They went out of their way to make our wedding "ours" and catered to our every need! We could not have asked for a more perfect wedding and when a monsoon came through Long Island on our big day, they transformed our hall into the most beautiful indoor-wedding setup! I'm still in awe of how special they made our day! Highly recommended, but suggest you contact Frank instead of Anthony to work out any issues that might come up- he's much easier to work with and much more easy-going than his brother, Anthony, who's much more "business."

Receptionist caould have been better
Carpets need to be replaced.
Food was excellent, outstanding, fantastic.
Offered coat check and valet parking at no additional cost!
Room was very tight for 130 guests.
House DJ was very talkative and the music was very loud.
Nice bridal suite.
Nice bathrooms.
Great ballroom.
Unique and beautiful indoor ceremony.
I do not reccomend the house videographer.
When the wedding was over they got us out of there so quick that people left things there.
Good value for winter wedding.
Took pictures by the lake which came out very, very nice.

The place was great because we got married outside on a great day. Everyone raved about the food. I would recommend Windows on the Lake, but I would definately not advise anyone, not even my worst enemy, to use the package they have for pictures, videographer, etc.!!! They say its cheaper and it is not and the services are horrible. Their photographer lost my wedding pictures, videographer did a horrible job with my video and we had problems with the limo service. So do your research and get your own vendors. But again Windows on the Lake itself was fine. I would reccomend!

I could go on and on about this venue and the problems that arose from having our wedding reception there. Prior to our "big day", I went to see the room set-up and all the tableclothes were wrinkled and dirty. I requested new ones and the new ones they brought out were just as bad. The recommended DJ (that came with the wedding package and venue) was busy getting food from our buffet when the music remained off for a good 5 minutes and we had to tell him to turn it back on. At the end of the night when we were leaving, the wait staff trash talked me and my guests while there were still in "ear-shot." Many other things occured but I will not waste any more of my time talking about how horrible this place was. I would never recommend having an event here.
