A M A Z I N G!!!! If we had to use one word to describe the venue, food, service and staff at Briza on the Bay, it would be AMAZING. From our initial contact with Jeannine, the sales rep/coordinator, we felt confident in our decision to book this venue for our 10 years vow... Read More renewal. Jeannine was very patient and accommodating with our many requests and changes to guest count. She made great recommendations that aligned with our vision and budget. Jeannine always returned calls or responded to emails in a timely manner. She would sometimes reach out to us before we could even think about reaching out to her for something that we had been discussing amongst ourselves and our planner. The banquet captain, Carlos, was just as friendly and professional as he was for our tasting. He ran a tight ship with his servers and they never missed a beat. The food was served fresh and hot. At the end of the night Carlos carried our cake's top tier as he walked us out and went to personally request our car from valet. Talk about first class service! During the night the bartender, Kylie, kept the libations flowing and our guests hydrated. We were very pleased with our signature drinks (Jeannine's recommendations) and our guests were impressed with them as well. Overall, we were extremely elated and beyond satisfied with our experience with Briza on the Bay. Perfect venue for a smooth execution of any meticulous event. (3/16/17)

We had a 14 month engagement. When we came cross briza, the venue itself was exactly what we were looking for! The venue is the perfect blend of sophistication, party, fun and elegance. Bria offers wedding packages that are affordable and fair priced, especially considering how... Read More expensive miami can be for weddings. They also offered us incentives that made such a great impact on the wedding itself and out guests! From the very beginning we worked with Jeannine. When i tell you, she is absolutely amazing, there will never be enough words to express how wonderful she is as a person, and at her job! She was with us every step of the way and you never felt bad for asking too many questions. She was always very comforting and she truly helped bring our dreams for a wedding, and make them a reality!!! By the end of the wedding, you really feel like you have made a new family member, she is that wonderful!!!! Great work ethic, expertise, and personality is so humble, caring and personable which is HUGE aspect for a bride who has so many things on their plates!!! Briza always did what they could to make sure the bride, groom and their families and guests were happy and they offer so many small different details that truly make that night the most amazing night of your life! i would most definitely recommend ANYONE getting married down in miami to take a look here! For 14 months it was nothing but amazing moments there. The venue itself is gorgeous, its basically an open space so the canvas is yours, however they have everything you need there to make it your own special night! It has big windows that outlook the bay so its beautiful as the sun is setting. Now--the Food is PHENOMENAL! Normally guests go to weddings and complain about the food, but my guests ranted for a week after the wedding how much they LOVED the food. (one of the things i fell in love with even more with the venue was the food tasting, the food is THAT GREAT!) they offer so many different varieties of hors d'œuvre to choose from which was so fun to pick! My husband is cuban puerto rican, and i am american so there was a perfect blend of appetizers for cocktail hour for both sides of the families to really enjoy themselves. The entree's on the other hand are absolutely out watering!!! so if you are a foodie like us, TRY BRIZA!!!! (their bar selections--we had the top bar selection--and it had amazing liquor selections as well!!!--one of our other favorite parts of the wedding!) again, if anyone getting married in miami, and are looking for a wedding venue, LOOK NO MORE! I looked at about 10 different places and when i walked in baiza it literally hit me---THIS IS IT! it gives you the classy wedding, yet fun all in the same space!!! we loved it and thanks to jeannine, baiza and their entire crew, they helped make our special night an absolute dream come true and there are not enough thank you's to really express how perfect our night was thanks to them!!!

We are more than happy to have chosen Briza as our wedding venue. Jeannine was always super helpful and attentive. We had the ceremony in Trinity Cathedral which was perfect for all the guests since it's a 3 minute walk to Briza. Everybody can't stop complementing the delicious...

He was always taking care of us, making sure we had a drink in our hands, the cocktail he made for me was delicious! The servers were excellent, all of our guests couldn't believe how well orchestrated everything was. The bartenders were spot on. They kept all of our guests well hydrated lol, even when almost everybody went to the bar at the same time they didn't miss a beat. All of the food was presented exactly as beautiful and delicious as the day of out tasting. The chef did an excellent job. All in all we made the right decision in choosing Briza as our wedding venue,(which it was the second and last venue we saw) our night was magical and we have beautiful memories to last us a lifetime. Thank you Jeannine & Carlos! All the best always, Alany & Carlos

We had an amazing experience with Briza on the Bay! The entire staff was great from the first day we went to visit the venue- up until the day of our wedding! Joseph was our coordinator and he was pleasant every single time we had to communicate. He was always helpful and... Read More most importantly, he never panicked under any circumstance. His positive, can-do attitude is exactly the type of person you want to work with during stressful situations.

Our coordinator at Briza, Joseph Castaneda, was above and beyond amazing. Joseph was always available to answer questions and offer suggestions. From start to finish Joseph made sure everything was perfect for us. One thing we especially loved about Briza was how many custom requests and changes they let us make regarding our décor setup, time line and menu. Many venues are quite strict and don’t allow many changes at all beyond the standard offerings. With Briza we were able to add an additional “pasta course” to our reception dinner, layout our exact floor plan and furniture setup, bring in an outside vendor for a mini dessert station, and extend our party to 2am. Thank you Briza for hosting our wedding!

All I'm going to say is that Joseph was amazing and even though he was not my planner, as my event coordinator at Briza, he not only went above and beyond but he was the main reason why we chose this venue. Even though the venue was too large for our 70 guests, I felt that me... Read More and my hubby were in good hands. Hands that we could trust. Pricing was perfect for our budget, did not have to worry about hiring a caterer as they have their own. In fact, the chef at Briza is a former chef at Chef Michelle Bernstein's restaurant. We work in hospitality and our standards of food and service were very high. They succeeded! Cake is part of their package. We got a a complimentary bridal suite at the Marriott Biscayne Bay which was a promotion and we highly enjoyed. Again, Briza is for the couple that is into food and great service! Not to mention the view! It overlooks the Bay and South Beach! We loved having our wedding here and so we hope all you future brides enjoy it as much as we did.

Briza on the Bay was the only venue that we looked at. After a walkthrough we knew this is where we wanted to get married! We didn't want the typical ballroom with carpet and no windows.

The food at Briza is DELICIOUS, outstanding! Our guests were raving about how amazing the salmon and filet mignon was. Joseph and the owner Boaz went above and beyond to make us happy. The service was exceptional; the staff was very attentive and went above and beyond to make sure that my husband and I and our guests were taken care of.
