The Woodcliff Manor is a stately country manor house built before the Civil War which became a well known restaurant in the 1920's. The newly redecorated facilities offer classic elegance along with historic charm which have been properly updated for the next century.

The residential neighborhood with immaculate garden settings now features private use of a lovely Victorian green with two waterfall-fed ponds before a backdrop of picturesque views for your wedding ceremony, reception, or other special occasion.

Two entirely spearate banquet rooms offer completely private entrances each with exquisitely hand beveled glass doors, coat rooms, rest rooms, beverage and dining facilities with generous space for music and dancing. Both the immaculate lawns or newly added garden patio can be viewed through the many windows and encourage guests to take the party outdoors.

Resident owners Nancy and Gil Reynolds have over 40 years between them in personally customizing parties for the clients at the Woodcliff Manor. Such dedication and experience ensure a well organized and executed event. The creativity and expertise of the excellent staff guarantee a party to remember Read less

I loved this place from the beginning! David was our main contact. Very courteous, always answered back quickly. Nancy made great food that night and for our tasting. Gil was helpful and I can't thank the staff enough for making it such a great night. Everyone LOVED the food, and the setting was so beautiful.

My husband and I got married here on the 7th of October and couldn't ask for a better day! Gil and David both were very accommodating and made our event very beautiful! There gardens are very beautiful and they have such a wide array of places to take pictures. The ceremony was perfectly planned and decorated for us and the gazebo was a perfect spot for our ceremony. Cocktail hour was amazing! There was tons of food and the stations we picked were such a hit! The wok station and the carving stations were the most popular with our group! Not to mention- the pumpkin soup and mini grilled cheese!

After cocktail hour it was time for dinner!!! We had chosen a fish, chicken and prime rib choice. The food was outstanding! Everyone raved about the food. The service was excellent- all the waitresses and waiters were very attentive and always made sure everyone received what they wanted.

David and Gil were outstanding and setup and breaking down all of our decorations. If you are planning an intimate ceremony- we had a wedding of approximately 110 people- this is the spot. You will not be disappointed.

We can't thank David, Gil and the rest of the staff at the woodcliff manor for making our day that much more special ??.

I just had my wedding here and I can do nothing but highly recommend Woodcliff Manor. David, Gil, and Nancy were all so genuine, helpful, and kind throughout the entire process. The outdoor garden area for the ceremony is absolutely beautiful with a gazebo, fountain, and bridge. In case of rain, the staff at the manor is ready to go with an indoor ceremony option too.. which luckily wasn't needed for my wedding. The food is delicious... both at the cocktail hour and dinner. Even before the night ended, guests were coming up to me to tell me how stuffed they were and how delicious the food was. David was very helpful and attentive throughout the planning process. Since the manor already has beautiful decor (most table pieces, etc can be removed at your wish), catering, linens/cutlery, and cake (made by A Little Cake), planning was really laid back for us! We just brought in 3 small boxes of decorations, though you are definitely free to bring as much as you like. David also cued the bridal party to walk down the ceremony, down to the reception room, and coordinated with the DJ the day of. Everyone here really knows their stuff to make your event go as smoothly as possible! Also, while the bridal party stayed after to take more pictures, the staff came out to bring us passed appetizers and drinks the guests were enjoying inside during cocktail hour. They really do think of everything! Woodcliff Manor is perfect for a cozy and comfortable wedding! My husband and I are not really into marble halls or more generic type wedding event places. Woodcliff Manor is unique, intimate, and personal. I cannot recommend the manor and everyone there enough. Thank you all so much for making my day so special and wonderful!

David, Nancy and the team made planning a wedding in less than 3 months such an easy thing to pull off. Their professionalism, customer service and attention to detail is beyond anything I have seen in the hospitality business - and I worked in it for 4 years! My guests continue to rave about the food - the hors d'oevres were beyond unbelievable. David was flexible with us as I wanted to drop some of the standards and add others. My mom has an allergy and they made sure she had enough things without. Very attentive staff throughout the night. The atmosphere is perfect - your party is the only one and it makes everyone feel at home. The bar is from the Waldorf Astoria from the '40s I think. Makes for awesome pictures inside and the grounds are gorgeous. I can't say enough great things about the Manor and David. Our guests say it was the best wedding they have ever been to. Thanks to the team for making that all possible! I highly recommend.

I would recommend the Woodcliff Manor to anyone who is planning a wedding! They made everything so easy for us. People say wedding planning is tough but not with David! I cannot truly express what a blessing this man was for us. We planned our wedding for 100 in under 6 months. David worked with our budget, eliminating things we didn't want to get to the price point we wanted ($113 pp, including Open Bar, Dinner, Cocktail Hour, tax & tip) and gave us the wedding of our DREAMS! The food was AMAZING! Steak, salmon and chicken and huge portions! Delicious sides! Our cocktail hour included several chaffing dishes and passed apps that were all creative, piping hot and delicious! We got to try most of them in advance at a private, complimentary tasting. The location was gorgeous - it was too cold to have the wedding outdoors on our day (10.3.15) but we did take the photos outside and they were fantastic. Woodcliff made the ceremony space indoors even more beautiful than I expected and everyone was comfy and warm! David threw in champagne before the wedding and a waffle bar - with ice cream and tons of fixins - at no cost. His team did ALL THE SET UP & TEAR DOWN of our decor- we did nothing. Our cake and our mint linens, were ALSO included in the cost! There were no hidden fees! David was even creative when our florist forgot to bring our cake flowers, he improvised on the spot, pulled some from our tables and arranged them on the cake in seconds - and it was beautiful! He's a true problem solver, and just overall so helpful. I had his cell number and was able to call and text him whenever I had questions and he was super helpful and responsive. So many of my guests said it was the best wedding they had ever been too! David made sure the entire night ran smoothly - it was like having an expert wedding planner on site, who worked with us from start to finish. Bottom line - if I got married again I would do it here! I cannot recommend Woodcliff Manor more highly!

We had our ceremony and reception at Woodcliff Manor. David, Gil, and Nancy were all wonderful and easy going about everything we requested (for example, they planned to plant mums at the time of our wedding, but we asked that they keep the summer flowers out for us). Everything was set up beautifully and we felt they took a vested interest in ensuring our wedding went as flawless as possible. The food was absolutely amazing, the service was highly professional, and the premises was beautiful. Overall, we would strongly recommend anyone interested in getting married nearby takes a look for themselves.

I am so happy that we had our reception at the Woodcliff Manor. Through the whole process they made it practically stress free. Dave and Gil were fantastic. Nancy modified our menu to not include any nuts and they ordered us gluten free beer for the bar and even added a pulled pork slider to the appetizers… the wedding cake was simply beautiful… they are an amazing group of people that do amazing work.
During the cocktail hour my wife and I were outside taking photos and they made sure to keep bringing us food and drinks. While we were not able to go to the cocktail hour our guests raved about the food and atmosphere and have been raving about how great the venue has been since our wedding. I can honestly say that I love this venue… their food was some of the best I have ever had (never mind at a wedding)… their customer service it outstanding (They made you feel welcomed… like family)… and the venue fit our wedding party perfectly…

Any venue can be beautiful, have elegant atmosphere, or have good food. BUT…This is not just any venue. They have amazing food, service, and value. They care about your event… They are not having “another wedding”… they are having “your wedding”… They care for your needs in a way you will not find anywhere else.

David and Gil- Thank you so much… You do amazing work
Nancy- You do some real magic in the kitchen. Everything was amazing …. Just amazing…

Thank you

Absolutely wonderful!! I cannot recommend the Woodcliff Manor enough. Dave, the manager, was amazingly attentive and accommodating throughout the whole entire process answering any and all questions when they came up. Gil is just so pleasant, and Nancy makes the most AMAZING food. They made our night exceptional and all of our guests said it was one of the best weddings they have ever been to. Dave convinced me to have the ceremony outdoors although it was a bit chilly out, and I am SO happy he did. It was just so beautiful. The decor of the place is just so cozy and elegant, there's no where else like it. Everything went so smoothyl, thanks to Dave! And the food...oh, the food! It is just out of this world. The spread they have during the cocktail hour is to die for - people couldn't believe there was more deliciousness to come! Everything was just perfect and I cannot thank Dave, Gil, Nancy and the rest of the staff for making our wedding so memorable and so much fun. I highly recommend the Woodcliff Manor for all weddings or any event! They will make your event unforgettable!

My son got married out of state in September and I needed to have a small reception near me, on very short notice. I wasn't looking for anything grand or fancy, just nice and affordable. Everything was already booked when I started searching in August, but lucky for me, Woodcliff Manor had a cancellation. I showed up, unannounced on a weekday, and was graciously greeted by Gil, who spent the time to show me around. I wanted the Garden Room downstairs, which is wheelchair accessible and just lovely. I read the reviews, trusted they were honest, and I wasn't disappointed. I thought the prices were very reasonable (actually a little cheaper than if we hired a caterer for a free hall), especially considering how nice and helpful everyone was. I opted for the buffet with carving stations (everyone RAVED about the lamb!) and we were able bring home the leftovers. The food was FABULOUS! There were no hidden fees (cake cutting, wine corking). We didn't have a DJ or MC of any kind and Dave was right there to help us along. The few negative comments I read were pretty insignificant. As for the picture of the grounds being photoshopped- the only place it was noticeable was online- the landscaping is absolutely beautiful for pictures. I would have my wedding there, and hope my daughter will choose it when it's her turn. I did not have one negative experience.
