We had a wedding reception at the Woodlands on New Year's Eve and we could not have picked a better venue! The whole vibe at the Woodlands is one of romance as can only be pulled off in a north shore mansion on Long Island - - attention to detail, delicious food and wonderful service. If they tell you something will be done, it is, the way you asked it to be. I cannot say enough wonderful things about the Woodlands - - if you are planning on having your reception here, you will not be sorry :)

Everything was absolutely fantastic!! The service was amazing, everything was taken care of before I was even able to think to ask! They did a lot of prep work prior to my wedding to make sure everything was up to my standards (washed the carpets, got brand new linens and china in time for my event), etc. The coordinator was amazing while we were trying to decide and did everything we asked!
The food was absolutely fantastic! The group that owns the catering hall also owns a bunch of restaurants, and they get the food from their restaurants that they serve to guests. Always fresh, and absolutely amazing! We got rave reviews from all who attended our wedding-- from the cocktail hour to the dinner, everyone was speechless!
The cake was TO DIE FOR! Baked on the premises, its fresh and custom made any way you'd like! They have plenty of photos for you to choose from, but they are also accommodating if you'd like something different.

I loved the Woodlands. The ground are amazing, the food was INCREDIBLE and the service was excellent. Yes, they are a little pricey but I would pay it all over again and not think twice. It took every ounce of self control we had not to eat our top layer of cake when we got home! The cake and dessert plate they made for us were phenominal. If food is something important to you for your wedding day you can not go wrong with the Woodlands.
They provided me with 2 Bridal Attendants who were both excellent. Sweet girls who were there within seconds when I needed them. Our maitre'd was just ok, as I didn't see him most of the night and the only time he appeared was for the cake cutting and my photographers had to ask him repeatedly to move out of the shot but that was the only time I saw him so that is the only thing I can review about him.
I gave the Woodlands a list of requests leading up to our wedding day and they were executed perfectly... from the specific chairs I wanted for the ceremony to quick plate pick up during cocktail hour and the placement of our signature cocktails everything was done just the way I requested.
My only "complaint" is that they did not pack everything up at the end of the night and we had to make several trips back to retrieve everything. I also blame my DOC for this as she had a list of everything I wanted and should have been on top of it.
