I had my wedding at il Tulipano on November 9, 2013. What an amazing night. The cocktail hour is phenomenal and the dessert is wonderful. The staff, especially Jacques and Thea, attend to ever detail, and nothing is overlooked. The place is beautiful and looks wonderful all decorated. I would get married there all over again.

We couldn't have been happier with the way our wedding turned out. The grounds were in beautiful shape for the ceremony. Our guests are still complimenting us on the food selection, especially the cocktail hour. Greg and his staff were extremely professional as well, from the time we booked all the way through the planning and the reception. We would recommend this venue to anyone looking to get married.

IL Tulipano was an amazing experience, we are so sad it is over already! From the beginning, we only had positive experiences! First off the venue itself is breath taking! The outside piazza is where we had our ceremony and cocktail hour, and it was gorgeous along with the ballroom itself. You get the whole venue to yourself, which is very hard to get these days, with outstanding service and food. We had a Portuguese and Italian wedding, two cultures very big on their food and we had no complaints! Everyone loved the food and left the wedding over filled. The service is outstanding, very attentive, polite and overall pleasing. No one had their glass empty all night. It is nice they designate 1 to 2 (depending on table) dedicated servers to each table throughout the event. We do not have one complaint or negative thing to say. If you are looking for an outstanding, memorable wedding that your guests will continue to compliment, IL Tulipano is the place to pick!!

My husband and I had our reception at Il Tulipano in June and had the most amazing time! We are still talking about it, and so are all our friends and family. From the amazing food, beautiful atmosphere, and the amazing service - it was all perfect and everyone is still raving about Il Tulipano. We can't wait to go back there as a guest for someone else's wedding, to enjoy it all over again. I would highly recommend this venue to anyone because you know you will get the best service possible and will completely enjoy your wedding day to the fullest. Everyone at Il Tulipano was so attentive to us and our family and friends, we truly had nothing to worry about and were able to just enjoy the night with everyone we love. A special thanks to everyone at Il Tulipano for making our wedding day one that is unforgettable!

My wedding reception at Il Tulipano was absolutely perfect. The food was unbelievable. From the cocktail hour to the Venetian hour everything that was served was nothing short of perfect. The food was served hot, the staff was super attentive to myself, the groom- but also my guests. Donald (the sales rep) was sometimes hard to get in touch with during the planning process which worried me, But once meeting with him in person, everything we selected with him on the menu and all of our special requests were taken care of so no biggie ;) Especially after the amazing wedding reception they gave us. 99% of my guests were Italian and most of them VERY Italian like I mean born and raised in Italy. They all LOVED the food. That is saying something. Even my DJ (who attends weddings on the regular- kind of a job requirement, LOL) was AMAZED at the food. He came up to me at the end of the night and said it was unreal. I am from Staten Island and Il Tulipano is not one of those venues that Staten Islanders are already tired of (like certain other venues in NJ I won't mention any names) and it is easy to get to and close, too... so my fellow Staten Islanders- if you want amazing food, one wedding at a time, and something DIFFERENT then go to Il Tulipano. Even the locals love that place (my husband is from the area). Your guests will not stop talking about it. I didn't even mention the grounds and they are so worth mentioning- STUNNING, BEAUTIFUL, FLOWERS, GARDENS, WATERFALL... Perfect any season. Seating at cocktail hour for EVERY GUEST. This is important stuff! Did I say one wedding at a time? Thank you Il Tulipano. Amazing. P.S. our maitre de (sorry about the spelling) worked her butt off she was awesome! The pastry chef is amazing. The cake was perfect. I gave them a picture and the pastry chef made it exactly and it tasted delicious, too. And it's included, you can bring any picture you want or any idea! Oh and FYI all of the bread, pastries, cakes, pasta are made on the premises fresh and when you walk into the place you will smell the fresh baking bread. Yes, you will and it is heavenly.

From start to finish, our experience with Il Tulipano was first-rate. The venue itself is beautiful (and we were lucky enough to be able to use the stunning backyard terrace, even with rain threatening) and the food was abundant and mouth-watering (note that Il Tulipano was formerly a top-rated Italian restaurant). My guests couldn't stop raving! I was also very grateful to our event manager, Jason, and my bridal assistant, Sunday, for their outstanding service: they were continually attentive and made a high-pressure situation feel like a walk in the park. I recommend this venue highly!

We are so happy that we chose to have our reception at Il Tulipano. The venue itself is beautiful, and it caters to only one wedding at a time. It is the perfect location as it has many different settings and looks for each stage of the night. Our professional photos that were taken in the courtyard came out beautiful!
Our guests are still raving about the food, especially the lamb chops during the cocktail hour and the orange roughy during dinner. The viennese hour had everything imaginable. Everything was so delicious; my only regret is that we didn't eat more that evening!
The staff and our bridal attendant Thea were extremely attentive to my husband and me throughout the entire night. Even when sauce had gotten onto my dress, without batting an eye, Thea had gotten the stain out within seconds. The staff has incredible attention to detail. From the early stages with planning and through the progression of the night, Greg, Jason, and Thea were outstanding!
We are still overjoyed that we chose Il Tulipano and cannot wait to experience it as a guest at someone else's wedding!

My husband and I heard about Il Tulipano from a friend and decided to check it out during our initial venue search. One hour at this place, and we were in love. It had everything we could ever want, from the extraordinary outdoor gardens and waterfall in the Piazza, which had an Italian vibe to it and were perfect for pictures, to the beautiful ballroom upstairs, and a fabulous selection for food and premium liquors. The 1-wedding-at-a-time venue was perfect and to top it off, the people we dealt with were truly amazing, friendly and helpful, which made the entire process smooth sailing.
We had THE MOST amazing time at our wedding and all of our guests raved about this place. The food, was especially to die for. Everyone thought that cocktail hour was their meal and so they filled up on the divine food being served & passed. But more was to come, and every bite was delicious!
What my husband & I loved most was the fact that we were given a personal attendant. So after the ceremony when were trying to get through all the pictures to make it to our cocktail hour, our attendant brought us right into the cocktail hour at a table specifically for us. She brought us cocktails of our choice & platters of all of the foods being served, which we were SOOOO appreciative of because to have to wait in line and then be slowed down talking to everyone would have made it so that we didn't eat at all. This was extremely helpful and we loved everything we tasted!!!! Thank you Thea! To top it off, the attendant waited on us, not only for food, but drinks, bustling of my dress (which my sister couldn't exactly get just right), pinning the bottom of dress when I felt like I was stepping on my it, walking us through every step of the way before the ceremony, etc. This was a HUGE help when you are the focus of the occasion and need to be all over the place during the night, yet want to eat and drink too :)
Overall, this was the most amazing day of our lives, and Il Tulipano helped to make it that way. We were treated like royalty and were able to enjoy ourselves thoroughly. I would go back to that day in a heartbeat because it was truly the best day of our lives!
Now I just need to convince someone I know to get married at Il Tulipano so we can enjoy the perfection as a guest :)

We truly ha the best night of our lives here! The second our limo pulled up, my husband and I were treated like royalty. They catered to our every need, brought food and drinks to us so that we could mingle with guests and enjoy the celebration, etc. Service was fantastic, and food was DELICIOUS just as its reputation states. Almost a month has passed and our guests are still talking about the great food.
Not only do they make your wedding day amazing, but the whole process with il Tulipano is smooth sailing. They are SO organized, friendly, and professional. Greg Jr. is great to work with, and he listened to our requests to make it truly our own special day. The first time my husband and I walked in to il Tulipano, we felt like we were at home and we knew this was the place for our wedding. Even better, the night of our wedding we were treated like family by the staff...they were genuinely happy for us and making sure the day carried out exactly as we wanted. Thank you il Tulipano!!

I had my wedding at Il Tulipano March 15, 2008. It was the most amazing day because of this amazing venue. The food and grounds are awesome. All these years later, people are still raving about our wedding
