My husband and I got married in February of this year and with everything going on we had to push our wedding reception to September 25th 2021. We had our reception at the North Ritz Club and to say everything was OUTSTANDING is an understateme...
nt. There is not one negative thing to say about this venue. From the staff to the venue to the experience to the food, everything was phenomenal. We first met with Nick who is all around an amazing person. He was always helping and accommodating with us every time the wedding guidelines changed with covid. We ended up changing our date 3x and Nick was more than happy to help each time. He was always available whether it was phone call, texting or visiting the venue. He only wants the best for all his clients.
The week before the wedding, we met with George, the Maitre d’. He was just as helpful and great as Nick was. The night of the wedding George was outstanding! Anything I needed, he had it for me in the blink of an eye. He was always around checking on us and all our guests. He went to each table making sure they all had anything they asked for. He was constantly checking on my husband and I to make sure everything was what we wanted. Even when we just needed to find a photographer, he had him in front of us before I knew it. Everything was set up exactly the way I dreamed it! The bridal assistant was just as amazing! If I wanted a drink, she had it in my hand in the blink of an eye with a straw. Making sure my dress and veil were always off the floor. She was amazing!!
I cannot rave enough about this place! Food, staff, venue, absolutely everything about this place is outstanding. 5 stars doesn’t do this venue justice!! Any event I can have at the North Ritz Club, I will be having it here! Thank you so much to Nick, George and Gus!! You brought our dream wedding to life!! 😊

I can't tell you how many times I called Nick, the catering director, through the year as with Covid we didn't even know if the wedding would take place. Nick always took the time to speak with me, I feel like I have a lifetime friend now. He kept me updated with all the covid changes. Luckily, for my daughter's wedding we were able to have 150 guests! We bought items to the venue to give it a personalized touch such as a family wedding display, a memorial display etc. When I walked in and saw the attention taken to set it up I was so happy. It looked like a professional decorator did it. Each item was meticulously placed. The bridal party was pleased as when they first entered their suite all the refreshments were waiting for them. It was the first hot day of the year so they were very appreciative of waters, beverages and food. The bridal attendant gave 200% attention to my daughter, she followed her so she was always there to assist her and she was the sweetest girl. George the Maitre'd made everything perfect. I am still getting texts and calls from guests telling me how much they enjoyed the wedding. The food was delicious from the cocktail hour, to the dinner to the Venetian hour. The only issue was it ended tooooo fast. I am so happy we chose North Ritz, my family and I recommend it highly. Thank you for making my daughter's wedding so memorable and perfect!!

We are paying the same price as originally, and we have no added stress of higher prices or extra fees for a situation that is completely out of everyone’s control. Nick made us feel like we were in this situation together, and he would have done anything to make sure we get that wedding we have been dreaming of. If you are thinking about checking out North Ritz for your wedding, not only is the grounds and place absolutely beautiful but the customer service has been outstanding.

She did an amazing job of stepping back and letting us enjoy the party but the moment we needed something she was already right there.

I have all great/amazing things to say about the North Ritz Club, George and Nick! We have had our eye on the North Ritz Club for a while before we even got engaged. We went to a few weddings there as guests and fell in love! The cocktail hour ...
was always amazing with so many options and the Viennese hour is always FILLED with desserts! When we got engaged we went straight to the venue to book our date.
Working with Nick and George was a pleasure! They left no stone unturned and the day ran so smoothly. We got married at the venue and chose to not do the reveal and they made sure we did not see each other before the ceremony. I was back and forth about this decision because of the photos and the timing but George reassured me that it can be done and I can’t be happier with our decision! We got married outside by the gazebo – they take care of the flower arrangements for the ceremony. It is all included in the price and it was gorgeous!
It was so easy to work with them and they answered any questions that I had – which for anyone who is planning a wedding, knows that that is important. I dropped off all the decorations (signs, pictures, easels, etc.) a few days before and they set it up BEAUTIFULLY when we walked into the lobby. The food that we had at our food tasting was out of this world! We did not try every option yet what we tried sold me! We did not try the cake either but they provide many options of looks and especially if you have a Viennese hour you will not be disappointed with the dessert options.
I love the look of the North Ritz Club – the cocktail hour room and the lobby is amazing. And before our wedding they had JUST redid the ballroom floors and WOW! It made a huge difference of the look and tone of the wedding! I am so grateful that we had the opportunity to have our wedding in the newly renovated ballroom and I can’t wait to see what the pictures look like! Also, I believe they are planning on other upgrades within the next year or so including the menu which has different cocktail hour and exit station options! I HIGHLY recommend the North Ritz Club! You are in such good hands when you have your wedding there. I am a planner and did everything for this wedding and the day of, I just wanted to enjoy. And that is what I did. I did not take care of anything. If something needed to be done, George or my bridal attendant Danielle (who was a SAINT), took care of it and it allowed me to just enjoy all my hard work. It was a great experience and I can’t say enough nice and wonderful things about the North Ritz Club and the staff who work there.

amazing everyone we encountered treated us throughout the entire process. It was important to us to have a venue that only celebrated one wedding at a time, and every time we went to NRC even if it was just to drop off a payment they made us feel like the whole place was totally ours. Nadine is probably the NICEST person on this planet!! She made us feel so confident that we booked with the NRC every time we saw her. George, our maitre d, was beyond fantastic. He answered my text messages within minutes in the weeks leading up to the wedding, and was so attentive with every little detail. George made the night go flawlessly. There was a point in the night when my feet started to hurt and I didn’t have the little foot pads to put in my shoes. Literally 10 minutes later my bridal attendant gives them to me and tells me that George went out to buy them for me. AMAZING!!! Speaking of my bridal attendant... Stefani is an absolute angel and I kept on telling her that all night. I didn’t know that service like that even existed!! We got married on the hottest day of the summer and all throughout pictures Stefani was by my side with waters and a mini fan to make sure I wasn’t too hot. Even while dancing she was there in case I needed another drink or anything, but she was never in the way or pushy about anything. It’s as if she was in my brain and knew exactly when I needed her lol. I had a little issue with the bustle of my dress and Stefani was literally laying on the floor cutting the bottom layer of tulle off so that I would be more comfortable. Any time I would go to the bar she would already be behind it making my drink. At the end of night we ended up tipping Stefani more than we anticipated and I honestly wish we had more money to tip everyone at the NRC more because they were all AMAZING. Everyone can’t stop talking about how great the food and service was. I hope my husband and I get invited to a wedding there in the future so that we can enjoy more of the food at cocktail hour, dinner, and Viennese hour because everything looked unbelievable. George and Nadine made sure our cocktail and Viennese hours had every single station we could imagine. I honestly could go on and on about how perfect everything was. Thank you, Nadine, Nick, George, Stefani, and everyone else at the NRC that contributed towards our perfect day. I wish we could relive it!!!!

Throughout the day, George and Daniella, (the bridal attendant), constantly made sure we always had a drink in our hand and anything else we needed. Daniella even took the time to fix my dress when I had unknowingly started the day with the dress on incorrectly and ended up being extremely uncomfortable by the reception. The food was delicious and the pastries may be the best I’ve had in my life. Our guests have not stopped complimenting the day, the food, the beauty, and the service.

All of our guests were raving about the food from cocktail hour to viennese hour. The bar inside the reception room is so nice! It's super spacious and our guests definitely enjoyed that aspect. The new floor in the reception room was a nice updated, modern touch and the decor was beautiful!

that does one wedding at a time, but they were truly the only place that genuinely made you feel like you were their #1 priority. We visited with other competitor venues, and the customer service they provided was nothing compared to the staff at the North Ritz.
Over the 2+ years leading up to our wedding, we primarily worked with Nick, who was a pleasure to work with, and also interacted with Nadine who was equally as great. No matter what time of day, Nick was always available to answer any questions I had, no matter how ridiculous. Leading up to our wedding we met with George to go over our day-of timeline and menu, and he ensured us that anything we asked for, he could provide...and I can honestly say that this is 100% true! Looking back at our wedding, there is not ONE thing that we wanted that the North Ritz didn't provide, from after-party food, to cocktail hour enhancements, to lobby decor, etc.
The bridal attendant, Stephanie, was out of this world - I could rave about her forever! By time I got to the North Ritz, my ballgown tulle skirt was so ripped up from taking outdoor pictures, and Stephanie immediately got on the floor with a pair of scissors and started fixing it. Every time I wanted a drink, needed a glass of water, or a bite to eat, Stephanie was standing there with it before I could even ask!
So many of our guests were impressed not only with the amount & quality of the food (which is outstanding) and the top-shelf bar, but with the service of the entire staff. We received countless complements on how professional and amazing the service was, and how our wedding was the best they had ever been to.
So many people say that on your wedding day, something is bound to go wrong, or things might not be 100% how you imagined them..but I can honestly say that thanks to the North Ritz, my wedding was as perfect as I could have ever imagined it. If you are at all debating getting married at the North Ritz, do it. You will not regret it!

But the team at the North Ritz has EVERYTHING fixed within 4 days!! I didn’t even know it was possible to repair such damages so quickly. You would never have known that anything happened or there was ever any damage to the place at all. When something like this happens a week before you’re wedding that you’ve been planning for so long, the emotions and the stress definitely get to you. But I truly trusted them when they told me it would all be back to normal in no time. And they were right. If this had happened at any other venue a week before our wedding, they probably would’ve just told us it is what it is. But not the North Ritz. They had crews working day and night to get everything fixed for their upcoming events.

If you can, DEFINITELY have your wedding here. My husband got married here during labor day weekend of 2017. There is absolutely nothing they can't/won't do to make your night absolutely spectacular. The bridal attendant was truly there with me...
every single step of the way, from holding my bouquet during pictures and my first dance, to giving me water while I was drinking so I wouldn't get dehydrated, to giving me flip flops (in any size I needed!) when my shoes became uncomfortable (just to name a few). The staff was out of the way, but at the same time they made sure to check on the families and bridal party throughout the night to make sure everything was running smoothly under their watch. We later found out that they were just as wonderful and helpful with the guests, ensuring that everyone had an amazing time. In addition to the outstanding service, the food was phenomenal and creative, the cake was beautiful, and they did it the way we wanted it designed, too. They were even willing to answer the phone whenever we had any questions! We were also able to choose on the day of the wedding whether we were going to be inside or outside for the ceremony, because we had the whole place to ourselves--we were ultimately able to have it outside and the ceremony was breathtaking. On top of all this, they stocked the groomsmen suite with liquor (which was bussed up to the bridal suite too), provided samples of all the food we were too busy schmoozing to eat during the cocktail hour in the bridal suite in case we needed to get away, and still gave us a bunch of tins of different entrees and desserts to take home at the end of the night. We've never experienced service of this caliber before and we never will again! Thank you so much North Ritz Club for making our night absolutely unforgettable!

Everywhere else we went, they wanted to "throw in" a bunch of stuff that we didn't want. At North Ritz, they made us feel like family. I could go on and on about how wonderful Nadine was...she let me borrow linens and table numbers to take to the florist, she brought my very unique idea of "cookies and milk" as the To Go Bar to life (they baked the cookies for me), she allowed us to practice our choreographed first dance in the ballroom weeks before our wedding, she personally made sure that my vision came to life and I owe her a huge debt of gratitude!!!! Along with Nadine, Stephanie was my Bridal Assistant. She was amazing as well. She did not leave our side the entire night. She brought us drinks, applied lip-gloss for me, fluffed my dress and even blotted my sweaty far head after dancing!! She was incredible. George was our maître and was great as well!

le. From the first day we toured the venue, Nadine was SO accommodating to my every wish. I don't think I heard the word no once. They customized my cocktail hour passed apps and stations specifically to us, creating a south of the border fajita station for my husband and a create your own meatball slider station for me. That is in addition to the ten passed apps and 13 stations that we already had. They brought in Heineken light and Rose for me on special request. They allowed me to start my party earlier than agreed upon. They were on top of EVERYTHING the day of, even when the first bus of people showed up a half hour too early. George made sure that everything I wanted was done, that the whole night was executed flawlessly. They even took my Grandma's cake recipe that I loved and used it for our wedding cake. Meanwhile, my bridal attendant Stephanie was a ninja. I never did not have a drink in my hand, she was fixing my hair on the fly and sewing a ripped part of my dress as I was walking. Not to mention, this staff really cares about their events. They aren't one to nickel and dime you and make you aware that you're spending thousands of dollars, you really get lost in the night and the feeling because EVERYTHING is taken care of for you. We had our afterparty in the cocktail hour room with sliders, a gelato station and a cigar bar and everyone said that it was the best afterparty (and obviously, wedding) that they've ever been to. Oh, and the food. The quality of the food was insane, and the value of this place is crazier. They've been flying under the radar of some of the more well-known, overrun catering halls on Jericho Turnpike, so I'd hop on while they're still affordable. AMAZING. THANK YOU.

d of mine had her wedding at the North Ritz and everyone raved about it, so we checked it out last on our list and were blown away with the level of customer service. There are no words to adequately describe how amazing Nadine is. She gave us EVERYTHING we wanted and more. From letting me bring in whatever decorations I wanted to customizing our cocktail hour and setting up a White Castle and sparkler station, the level of personalization to our wedding was out of this world. Maître d' George was just as amazing on the day as well as was the best bridal attendant in the world, Stephanie. She was right behind me the whole night and always nearby if I needed her for ANYTHING. Every single one of our guests commented that it was the best wedding they had ever been to. The cocktail hour was amazing but not as stellar as the Viennese hour. Four bonus stations on top of every dessert you can think of. The North Ritz definitely set the bar high for other Long Island venues. An amazingly accommodating staff, the best food at any venue by far, and lovely grounds make the North Ritz Club a no brainer.

We were lucky enough to be told about the North Ritz Club by friends who were recently married and we will forever be thankful to them. From the minute we walked into the North Ritz for our consultation we knew this could be the one and we coul...
d not be happier with our decision.
Our first impression of the North Ritz came when we met with Nadine who is extremely sweet and accommodating. She helped us along the whole way leading up to our October 16th, 2015 wedding and was there to answer any questions we had.
We knew our wedding was going to be pretty big (we ended up having about 190 people) and the level of service and the great food we received for the price we paid was fantastic and kept us in our budget.
The North Ritz let us come in about a year and half before our wedding for a food tasting that even both sets of our parents were able to enjoy as well and I feel like we spent the next few months talking about how delicious the food was (and was just as good the day of the wedding!)
Leading up to the last few days before the wedding, the North Ritz helped us get organized with everything we were dropping off for the ceremony and reception. For a while we were worried rain might not have allowed us to have the ceremony outside but the North Ritz assured us they would wait as long as they could before making the decision to bring it inside and luckily rain ended up never being a issue.
On the day of the wedding we arrived with our wedding party after taking pictures before the ceremony and we were greeted with a fully stocked bridal suite with food and drinks to pick on before the ceremony.
At that time we also met the maitre de George and our bridal attendant Stephanie, two people who we cannot rave enough about. George did a wonderful job overseeing the whole day and making sure everything was running smoothly. Stephanie was extremely attentive and there for me whenever I needed her before I could even ask. Whether it was to fix my dress, hold my bouquet, get me something to eat, water, a beer or a change of shoes, she was there. She even helped to fix my husband's suspenders when they broke on the dance floor.
The staff was not only wonderful to just my new husband and I but to our parents, wedding party and guests. My bridesmaids asked for Redbull and vodka at one point before the ceremony and even though the North Ritz does not carry Redbull, they went out and got it for them. My girls were amazed!
The ceremony, cocktail hour and reception all went off on time and without a hitch and the North Ritz was such a HUGE part of making this the best day of our lives.
They even sent us home with some extra entrees and pastries from our venetian hour.
Here we are three months later and still our parents, wedding party and other guests are talking about how nice the venue was, how great the food tasted (so much food!) and how the servers, waiters and bartenders were just wonderful.
I cannot recommend the North Ritz Club enough. I'm pretty sure throughout the whole planning process they never told me "No" to anything I asked of them and they helped make my dream day come to life!
You will not regret booking the North Ritz Club for your wedding.

The day of was perfect – we had a bridal assistant who was always by our side and helping with everything: drinks, food, dress, special requests. George helped us to communicate special requests to the band, our photographer, and guests.
The food was fantastic as well as the service. So many guests are still sending us messages how they loved everything because it was that good. We had a few last minute cancelations and we didn’t meet our min, however, NRC was so understanding and didn’t force us to fulfill the contract
Cocktail Hour – our guests arrived half hour before the start. NRC was ready and let people into the cocktail room
Reception: everything was made to order (I am saying this because I looked at the kitchen before our wedding). If someone ordered steak medium, it was medium. Nothing was pre-cooked, which is a huge advantage. Our special drink was made with exact proportions and so many guests were drinking it because it was our version of Mojito and NRC used only fresh ingredients to make it (fresh mint and actual sugar cane).
After the reception, they gave us a huge box of food that our families ate for the next 3 days. We came the following morning to pick up items and they gave us more food – it was great because you actually don’t’ get to appreciate the food at your own wedding as you are too stressed or don’t eat. We did eat but we were just too hyper to think or to realize the taste of anything.
We were tipsy and hyper by the time the cake cutting came along, so after the cake cutting we actually fell on the floor as my groom stumbled. One of our guests took a video of it and you can see how the entire NRC run to us when we fell. We keep laughing about it because they were really watching our every move and making sure that we are ok with anything.
Honestly, the wedding was a huge success because of NRC.
We can’t recommend this place enough and we would definitely use it for the baptism (once we have a child in a few years).

George's handling of our day was impeccable. He kept his promise and did everything he could, and handled everything. We asked for red bull which they didn't carry. They went out and got us a case.
Stephanie was on point with everything. She helped my wife, every moment. Never letting us out of her sight. She constantly found us, and made sure we had a drink in our hands, and that anything we needed was taken care of.
We thank these and everybody else at the venue, as we still have not stopped getting compliments on the service, and the food at the venue.
Thank you to them all!

h watering menu that even included a Cuban station at cocktail hour. Goerge made sure the entire night went smoothly and oversaw every minute detail. I was given an assistant who constantly managed to refill mine and my grooms drinks before they were dry and was even there to dry my face after my dance-capades. The food was unreal, people are still talking about it. The icing on the cake when they brought seconds around to the table. Nobody had ever seen that and they were thrilled to try everything on the menu. We extended the party by one hour and ended the night with goodie bags full of mini cheeseburgers and dogs. Another first for a lot of people.
I can't rave about The North Ritz Club enough. They were a pleasure to work with from start to finish. I was able to 100% enjoy myself and felt comfortable handing over the reigns knowing that they cared about my wedding as much as I did.

can think of is the cake. A cake is included in the price but if you like you can bring one in from the outside. I figured why spend $700 when they give you one. Well the cake tasted like poop! if I would have known I would have spent the money. They do not do cake tastings so I had no idea. Everything else was more than I expected and I would recommend the place in a heart beat.

ail hour space - both inside and outside - is so spacious that everyone can sit (a rarity for a wedding!). The dance floor is made of marble - which gives an elegant look to the reception room. The staff - from the owner to the bridal attendant - were very professional, courteous, and helpful. George, the maitre d', ensured that our entire wedding flowed smoothly without a hitch. The food was so delicious that our guests still can't stop raving about it. What truly surprised me, though, was the service I received from my bridal attendant, Isabelle. She was there for me, literally 24-7, for everything I could possibly need. (It was similar to having a personal assistant, but better.) Not only was she helpful, but she was warm, friendly, and supportive - exactly what I needed on my wedding day. I couldn't have chosen a better venue for my wedding, as the North Ritz Club provided everything I needed for a luxurious and unforgettable wedding.

amazing. Guest were offered 8 choices and we did not hear complaints from one person. We only heard raving reviews. I am gluten free due to celiac disease, and they accommodated me not only having food that was separate in the bridal suite, but they also gave me a separate gluten free cake to enjoy during the cake cutting. George, our maitre 'd, was so attentive to all of the details, including special vodka that i requested (GF).
Monica, my bridal attendant was so sweet and never pushy or in the way. She made sure i always had what i needed before i needed it, and reminded me to eat a little.
All in all, I give the North Ritz a 6 star review because they more than deserve it. It was my first time their for an affair and I cant wait to go back for something!

I had my wedding reception at the North Ritz Club on a Saturday in June 2011, and I cannot say enough about this great venue. I was working as an expat in Australia and was not able to come back to the U.S. to search for a venue myself, so my ...
parents actually found and booked the North Ritz Club before I had even seen it. Of course this could be nervewracking to the normal bride, but I must say, from my first conversation with Nadine on the phone, I was confident that the service and flexibility at the North Ritz Club would be great. I was right. Every single time we visited the venue in the months before our wedding, the staff was extremely cordial and accomodating. The venue's outdoor area, bridal suite and reception ballroom are gorgeous. One of the criteria I had told my parents to look for was a place that wasn't already heavily decorated with chandeliers, overly fancy chairs, etc. so that we would have somewhat of a "blank slate" in terms of our decor. This is no easy task when searching for a catering hall, as opposed to a loft-type venue, but North Ritz was just right.
Our ceremony was at a church at 2pm, and since North Ritz had no event booked during the day on our wedding date at the time we printed our invitations, they kindly moved our cocktail hour to begin one hour earlier (6pm) to alleviate some of the gap. On the day of the wedding, our guests started arriving as early as 5:30pm, and George the Maitre'D opened cocktail hour then so that the guests could come inside and eat. I thought this was extremely considerate.
We originally guaranteed a certain number of guests at our reception for discounted rate, but realized through our RSVP process that we might not meet our original number. When we brought this to Nadine's attention, she helped us to work out a new contract with an updated number of guests and rate, which we still found to be reasonable for the area. This eased a lot of stress on our part, and is not something that most vendors would be willing to do.
We had custom stationery for our wedding and North Ritz worked with me so that I could add ribbons and seals with our wedding logo to the menus they printed. They arranged for a custom ice sculpture with our logo on it, even though they typically only include one of two pre-molded ice sculpture designs in their packages. We created a signature cocktail, and the bartenders happily served it to our guests all night. My family is of Indian descent, and the North Ritz Club created an Indian food station at cocktail hour for us. My guests raved about how delicious it was. Speaking of delicious - dinner was fantastic as well, and having been to over 50 events at catering halls in Long Island (huge family!), I must say it was well beyond my expectations. Our cake turned out exactly as I had requested, and was extremely moist and flavorful.
Monica was my bridal attendant, and she was by my side for the entire night, but still gave my husband and I space. I felt like I never had to lift a finger. She bustled my dress with ease, and trust me, it was no easy dress to bustle - eight hooks going through at least 14 layers of tulle! At one point, George, our Maitre'D showed my dad how he was monitoring activity in the reception room on a camera panel. My dad said it was fascinating, and that the potential for any crisis was averted by George's careful eye! The service was phenomenal, with waiters dedicated to each table - no one's water
