Venezia Waterfront Banquet Facility & Restaurant
I am not one to write reviews, etc, but I really felt that I owed to Brenda and the staff at Venezia to acknowledge how pleased we were with our wedding in October. From start to finish, Venezia far exceeded our expectations. After looking at many venues, we decided on Venezia. The lobby, outdoor deck and room itself were so elegant and comfortable it would be hard to find another venue that will equal it. I looked at Venezia and met with Brenda, and felt it was the best choice for me. I wanted somewhere close to downtown, but with parking for our local guests, and access to reasonable hotels for all of our “out of town” guests. Brenda was inquisitive and pleasant to deal with-
She understood that we had a budget and worked with it. Being that we live in New York, email was the way to get info and keep my stress level down. She always answered every question in a timely manner. She was very understanding and flexible, as she was working with my mother and me due to my out of state location.
From the minute we arrived Brenda along with the entire staff were there to greet us. Not one moment did I feel stressed as they handled EVERYTHING! From the private bridal suite with private bathroom to the party itself, everything was top notch. People are STILL talking about how amazing our wedding was. The venue, service and the food were all wonderful. I cannot say enough about Brenda. She was so pleasant and relaxed. I would highly recommend Venezia to anyone planning a wedding. The food, service and venue all exceeded our expectations. As I said, we are still receiving compliments on the wedding, food etc. The Viennese table was a HUGE hit, as well, and I would highly recommending splurging on that feature as it added something special to the whole evening. All and all, a wonderful time had by all!

When I first entered the Venezia I just knew that this was the place that I was going to have my wedding reception. The place is truly stunning. It is right by the water and the facilty inside is breath taking. Our contact at the Venezia was wonderful. She was extremely helpful, professional and informative. She was flexible and truly helped us keep on our budget. If you are looking for a beautiful location in Boston to hold your wedding I wouldn't look any further than The Venezia.
My wedding was absolutely amazing. Everything was great. Brenda is amazing to work with, you feel like you are planning your event with a good friend. Venezia's dessert table is unbelievable. I had so many compliments on everything. Great place for a wedding!
Venezia was an excellent venue for my wedding reception. Brenda is the wedding coordinator and she was fabulous to work with, she was alway quick to respond to my questions/emails. In addition, she was flexible in meeting with us and made the whole process smooth from start to finish. The night of the reception, everything was perfect. The food was unbelievable and the dessert bar was incredible. My guests are still talking about the food!!! The attendants who worked the function were very helpful and always made sure I (bride) had everything I needed throughout the whole night. In addition, the deck is a great feature, especially for spring/summer/fall weddings. Many of the guests stepped outside for a few minutes and took advantage of the view of Boston. Overall, it was a great place for a wedding and I am still getting phone calls from guests raving about the venue.
Brenda and the entire staff of Venezia are amazing!! They work to please you! They were not only able to make my day as the bride incredible, but my family and guest had a great experience. Throughout the entire night there are staff at your service for anything that you would need or want. Not only were the staff amazing the food is UNBELIEVABLE..
I have a very Italian family and for them all to lick their plates is a huge compliement! Even as the bride i stoped to make sure i ate because it was too good!
We LOVE Venezia!! The food was spectacular, they treated us like royalty and the whole evening was beautiful and perfect. Brenda Seekins is the BEST. She was amazing to work with and kept us calm throughout the whole planning process. She knows her stuff and gave us the best advice while we were trying to make crucial choices. We can't say enough about how wonderful it was. It was our dream wedding and we are so happy. We're still getting compliments from guests about what a perfect wedding it was. Thank you Venezia!
Our wedding was AMAZING and most of that was thanks to the staff at Venezia. Brenda is truly great, and always made time for us to stop by especially with our crazy schedule...there was just one very small thing, while taking some of our formal pictures during cocktail hour my husband was looking for a drink and the waiter was more focused on getting drinks for the rest of the bridal party and did not even come over to us, when we should have been asked first, i mean it was OUR day...But i would 100% recommend Venezia to any bride that would ask me, or for any other event. Thank you, you truly made my wedding great.
I fell in love with this venue the second I walked in. The foyer is gorgeous with white marble and a white baby grand piano. I ended up picking Venezia not only because of the beautiful waterfront view, the delicious food but also because of the even coordinator, Brenda Seekins. She is amazing. She has years of experience and answered every question before I got to ask. She has extremely responsive and helpful with every annoying email I sent her. She helped ease a lot of stress and really made my reception everything I wanted it to be and more. Brenda and the staff were perfect. She has no time for non sense and really take pride in every single wedding that she hosts. Not the mention the food was absolutely delicious and the Venetian Dessert Table was an incredible site. Considering the quality of food/wine and the location on the water, I think the pricing was reasonable. If you have never been to the restaurant check it out and if you get a chance to walk through the foyer and into the ballroom take the opportunity-it was the perfect location for our special day. Thank you so much!!!!!!!!! Venezia should definitely go on your list of potential venue!!!
When I first walked into the banquet facility, I knew I wanted to have our wedding here. Unfortunately the date we had planned on wasn't available so we kept looking at other venues. After almost signing a contract with another venue, we decided it didn't feel right so we went back to Brenda at Venezia to see what dates were available. We moved up our wedding date just so I can get the venue that I fell in love with. Brenda was amazing, very understanding and a pro at what she does. On our wedding day, the banquet hall looked amazing and everything was sent up just as we had expected. Our limo was running late and didnt pick us up from the hotel to go to the venue so we had the best man drive us to the venue and Brenda was standing outside waiting for us to arrive. She directed us up a private staircase to the bridal suite, where we were immediately taken care of by the wait staff. Everything looked amazing and tasted even better. We had gone all out for our wedding and chosen the platinum package with upgrades. It was worth every penny. All of our family members and guests loved the reception and are still talking about it weeks after.
Im very pleased with the service porvided in Vennezia Restaurant, starting with an amazin cordinator (Brenda Seekins) who organize our wedding in only 1 week. You will think with such of short notice she wouldnt have time to do something nice and the truth is our was the most beatiful wedding I ever have seen and for a very good price. The food is fantastic and what to say about the view. Thank you so much Vennezia and thank you Brenda.
A beautiful location, you can see right over the harbor into boston, All Italian marble inside. White glove service. Great food. Baeutiful pictures can be taken there.
Fabulous site. Fantastic views. delicious food! The best function director, Brenda Seekins.- friendly, professional and very knowledgeable. Great place for a special event!! Highly recommend.
Venezia is truly one of our favorite venues! The coordinators and staff here are very caring and always ensure that your guests and the professionals working for you are well acommodated with everything they need. The food is amazing and presented colorfully, parking is plentiful and complementary for your guests. A wonderful venue for larger weddings which is hard to find in Boston!
I have done many events at Venezia, the service and staff are exceptional and the food is amazing. One of my favorite wait staff people works there and they are so lucky to have her as part of the team.
If you want a sophisticated Boston feel without the headaches of the city as well as amazing food and the best dessert display in New England, Venezia is the place. Their attention to detail is simply unmatched.
Very nice venue. Lots of adjacent parking - important. Great food, great chef. Super staff. Venue is very conducive to a great time. All my events there have been off the hook - because they do their job very well and they treat the brides and grooms like royaly ! I love it there at Venezia ! Curtis
Every bride dreams of the perfrect, romantic reception site that will bring to life her dream wedding. Picture an elegant ballroom overlooking the water, with floor to ceiling windows framing majstic views of the Boston skyline, gourmet cuisine for your guest to enjoy while basking in the glow if a gorgous sunset!
