My husband and I recently held our wedding reception at the Davenport, and cannot say enough about the truly incredible experience Guy and his wonderful staff provided for us and our guests. The ambiance was unparalleled, given the waterfront views, beautiful décor within the mansion itself, and overall intimacy of the evening, as each event at the venue is the only one occurring at a given time. The service was second to none, with a personable and caring group of individuals who worked to ensure every guest at the reception felt as though they were a guest of honor. The food was excellent, with a fantastic cocktail hour of stations and passed hors d'oeuvres seamlessly integrated with an elegant sit-down dinner. And finally, Guy himself is a true class act – he ensured that not a detail was missed, and the evening went off without a hitch. We cannot speak of our experience with more regard, and we provide the highest recommendation possible.
I celebrated my Dad's 77th Surprise Birthday at the Davenport Mansion and words can't express how satisfied I was with customer service provided by Guy M. (event manager) and his staff! Guy was truly a pleasure to work with. He makes you feel like family. He was so accommodating to me. Everything was taken care of so professionally. His staff members were very professional and helpful. I looked at other venues but when I met Guy, I knew the Davenport was where I wanted my Dad's party. The venue is warm and beautiful. The food was delicious and the view is breathtaking! You will not be disappointed!
My daughter got married on July 30th - people are still saying how much amazing this wedding was and it truly was an amazing night. The food starting from the horderves to the meal was outstanding. The service was exceptional. Working with Guy, the caterer/manager, was seamless. The Davenport Club on the Sound is beautiful and the entire wedding was flawless. Please consider for any and all of your celebration needs!
We just had our daughter's wedding there on 5/29/16. The Davenport Wedding experience can be summed up in 3 simple words. WOW! WOW! WOW! Absolutely beautiful setting (overlooking Long Island Sound) Fabulous food!!! Hors D Oeuvres simply de-de-delicious! The dinner simply sumptuous!! Amazing overseeing and organizing of the wedding! Super wait staff! And..... the price is very, very, reasonable!! You can definitely go somewhere else and pay a fortune but for what??? We could not have asked for anything more or anything better. The owners and staff treat you with the utmost respect and run the wedding with great diligence! My suggestion! Book them now! Book them soon! They are going to be quite quite popular!!
Our daughter, Kasey got married on this Memorial Day weekend, and everything could not have been more perfectly executed than by Guy & Maria! We had booked the Davenport a year & a half ago under the former manager, Joe Rossi--& we gave him a deposit for the contract that we had agreed upon. Guy took over about 5 mos ago, & contacted Kasey to assure her he would honor that contract. Both he & Maria were responsive to calls & emails--easy to talk with & so reasonable to work with. Guy completely renovated the interior--it looks even more beautiful being so updated now! The food was beyond exceptional! Maria made sure everyone knew where to be at the right times . . . and both she & Guy checked on us throughout the night, making sure we felt things were going well! They personally knew our names, those of the groom's parents, and the maid of honor & best man. The grounds were impeccable, and our guests still cannot get over the view! I'll be honest & say I was a bit worried about the change of hands before the wedding, but Guy & Maria made sure this was a dream come true! Almost wish we had another daughter--we would have her wedding exactly like Kasey & Derek's turned out to be! Kudos & many thanks to this new team!

Joe Rossi Jr is amazing! he was super accomadating and wonderful during my entire planning process. I couldn't have asked for a more beautiful venue for my wedding day! Joe, his wife, and staff were truly amazing and did more than I could have ever hoped for to ensure my wedding was perfect! the venue looked beautiful and they set everything up just how I wanted it! I was hoping it would be a nice day so that we could get married at the Gazebo which we did! it was so beautiful and everyone raved about how wonderful my venue was. I knew I didn't want a wedding factory for my venue which is what I loved about Davenport. The whole place was only for me and my guests which made it that much more intimate! Food is also extrememly important and the food was AMAZING! everyone (and i mean everyone) said how great the food was!! everything came out hot, delicious and was just super tasty! our meals were even terrific!!! It was honestly the best meal i've ever had at a wedding and i'm not just saying that because I got married there! plenty of my family members said the same thing and they all kept talking about the food!! Thank you again for all that you did for Eddie and I. He was super happy and loved every minute of our wedding thanks to all your hard work. I'm sad that the day is over but next time I have a special occasion I want to make sure it's held at the davenport!!! everything was WONDERFUL and PERFECT!!! thank you so much again!!
Perfect Wedding at The DavenportReviewed on 9/23/2014 Jennifer D
I got married a couple of weeks ago at The Davenport in New Rochelle. After looking around at a few other venues, I knew the Davenport was "the One" when I walked in. An old fashioned mansion located on the beautiful Long Island Sound. After meeting with the owner, Joe Rossi Jr., I felt even more comfortable about my decision. He was wonderful throughout the entire planning process and up until the end of my event. Always there for any concerns I may have had, or when I just dropped by to ask a question. He was very accommodating and wonderful to work with. He really went above & beyond to make sure my day was perfect and it absolutely was! I could go on for days but I will wrap it up. Place was beautiful, food was delicious, everything went as smoothly as I could have possibly imagined & it was also very budget-friendly! If I could get married all over again, I would absolutely choose The Davenport without a doubt!!
Outstanding!!Reviewed on 7/21/2014 Jennifer R
Outstanding family run venue with excellent personal service. All of our guests raved about the food. Location has beautiful views of the Long Island sound.
Great VenueReviewed on 10/18/2012 Lauren I
I loved the cozy feel at Davenport, having only 1 wedding at a time leaves several rooms open for people to hang out in, if they want to get a drink at the bar or get away from the music. The food was excellent, and the service was great too. They handled everything so I had nothing to worry about on the big day. Highly recommend.
wonderful serviceReviewed on 10/13/2011 Nicola D

Review for The Davenport ClubReviewed on 9/25/2007 Sophina S
The Davenport Club is a family run business. The Rossi family pays immacualte attention to every detail. They cater to your every need and are very accomodating. They made my husband and I feel like we were their number one priority for the entire time of planning and especially on our weddign day. Our family and friends have said it was the 'best wedding' they have ever been to which we can credit Mr. Joe Rossi and his family for. They were truly a pleasure to work with. We had the intimate reception that we wanted as they only cater to one wedding at a time! My husband and I can't say enough about the Davenport Club.;It was perfect for the amount of people that we had. They can't accomodate more than 150 people for a reception venue.
