Loved my wedding!Reviewed on 5/13/2014 Kate S
I thought The View on the Hudson was an amazing place to get married. All of my guests loved the food during the cocktail hour and the wedding. The space is amazing and the view is WONDERFUL. It ended up raining during our wedding, so we had the ceremony inside, and it was still breathtaking. The professionalism of the staff was great for this. They turned the room around in a matter of minutes!
EXCEPTIONAL!!!!Reviewed on 5/02/2014 SHARMEL W
HOWARD YOU ARE AMAZING!!!! My wedding was on January 11, 2014. Upstate NY in the dead of the worse winter in a long time. Yet somehow no one remembers that, all they are talking about is the amount of food and the quality of the food. The level of service they received and just how elegant and classy our affair was. I've heard comments as THE BEST WEDDING I'VE EVER BEEN TO. Yes me and my husband both planned things that we knew each of our families would like but to have a wonderful team like they have at The View on the Hudson to execute it and go above and beyond for all our guest not just those immediately involved like the bridal party, parents and of course Bride and Groom but all our guest felt like they were treated royally. Who can ask for anything better. No to forget our Maitre D. Howard I say again YOU ARE AMAZING!!!! You truly made our wedding the most beautiful day and there wasn't nothing that you didn't do to see to that. Another point our family members know you by name and we all are still talking about how GREAT you are. I can't say THANK YOU enough but i'll try. THANK YOU SOOOOO MUCH!!!!!!! I can go on and on about how much food was served and how amazing it tasted but to be fair as the bride I didn't eat much I can only tell you that my family is still talking about the food and wished they could have taken some home, LOL! The venue was beautiful and the service was top notch. And the amount that you get for the price in NY is unreal. Book the view if you want a gorgeous affair and to be treated like royalty.
Great location for a beautiful wedding with a river viewReviewed on 9/16/2013 Omolola O
My husband and I had our ceremony (outdoors) and reception at the View on the Hudson. We worked closely with Howard Vaz whose careful attention to detail ensured that we had a beautiful and truly memorable wedding. Howard knew that we wanted an outdoor wedding overlooking the Hudson River, but there was rain in the forecast for that weekend. He and his staff monitored the weather reports and decided that we could pull it off. We had a beautiful outdoor ceremony and then headed indoors for cocktails and hors d'oeuvres. The rain came down an hour later while we were safely indoors! Howard accommodated our request for an outside caterer to provide some Nigerian dishes during the cocktail hour and his quick-thinking saved the day when the caterer showed up an hour-and-a-half late (well past the cocktail hour). He served the Nigerian food to each table as an additional food option during the luncheon and most guests thought that this was our original intention! Howard has a no-nonsense approach to wedding planning that might take some getting used to but the results more than speak for themselves. I would use him again in a heartbeat. We were so happy with the outcome that we visited him a week after our wedding just to say "thank you!" I would highly recommend the View on the Hudson to any couple thinking of getting married in the greater New York area.
Howard was amazing and absolutely helpful for an already stressful intense day. I had an evening wedding and the venue was absolutely gorgeous. The staff was very supportive and very nice! My guests raved about the food, the cocktail hour was amazing. What I enjoyed was how Howard tries to implement cultural needs into your event and is open to ideas and works with you. Two things I wasn't aware of but wouldn't have changed my mind, I would have just been more prepared. Being by the water expect mosquitoes, I didn't and one of my bridesmaids are allergic to them yikes, nothing Benadryl couldn't fix. Secondly, the venue is in a small town which blares an alarm for nearby firefighters to come to the station and assist in emergencies. Luckily this happened PRIOR to the ceremony but not again afterwards. Otherwise the venue was beautiful, the food was great, and I was very happy that my husband and I chose this venue.
Food was good, venue is beautiful. Big bang for our buck, and if we had to do it all over again we would. Can't say enough good things about this venue. However.....we had a difficult time dealing with our maître d Howard on occasion. We asked that the bride and groom and bridal party have our cocktail hour upstairs in the bridal and grooms suites. Howard almost insisted that we do not, almost to the point of arguing. He even raised his voice at my bride on our wedding night when she refused to go downstairs to the cocktail hour with the guests. We had 200 guests at our wedding, and we knew that we would not be able to get a bite in with all of our guests coming up to us. We chose not to eat downstairs for that reason....plus.....it was a tradition with both of our families that we don't see them until we make the entrance at the reception. The groomsmen and bridesmaids all felt the same way about our maître d. Other than that, we had a very pleasant experience with The View and would do it all over again if we could.
Our Nov.'16 reception was held here. Everything from start to finish was absolutely flawless and perfect. Our maitre d', Howard, catered to all of our needs as well as all of our guest's needs. He anticipated all the priorities as well as the little things even before we realized they needed to be done. All the guests could not be happier with the food and drinks. Everything that was served from cocktail hour to the bar to the main course was presented beautifully and tasted delicious. We highly recommend The View on the Hudson and Howard. Everything he promised was brought to the table (AND MORE!!!)
What a great wedding reception we had in late December, 2016. Howard Vaz was the consummate professional from the time of negotiation, to the time we walked out of the reception hall. Like a skilled physician, Howard has been doing this for many years and the customer is the beneficiary of that experience. The View as a venue is excellent, you're the only event going on there. The flow of the rooms, the bar area, the vast hallway, really lend to a nice flow of family and friends mingling easily. While we had >150 guests there, folks remarked to me how nice that the tables were not bumping into each other (how I hate that!). The food was excellent, and the presentation of the appetizers, the Cake, were just great. Howard's attention to detail was amazing. As the Father of the Bride (or the Bride or Groom), there are a million things going on. It was extremely important who had their eyes on the details.........thanks Howard! I cannot say enough about the tremendous experience we had at The View.
Could not have chosen a better venue to have my wedding at. It was absolutely perfect from staff, matre D, linens, set up........ Absolutely everything exceeded my expectations.
We were so happy with our wedding at the View on the Hudson. Ralph made everything super easy and his staff was absolutely terrific. They even made us an ice carving of our dog! Our guests had a wonderful time and loved the spectacular view and all the food (there was so much food and so much variety). We definitely recommend this venue.
Literally the best day ever!!!! To say the staff at The View was accommodating would be an understatement. They were by our side the entire night making sure we had exactly what my husband and I needed. We actually forgot the cake topper for our wedding cake and the staff was gracious enough to offer us one that they had there. The bridal party was also a few hours early to the venue because we were taking pictures and even though they were still setting up for the reception they accommodated our entire bridal party and made sure we were comfortable and had some snacks. Overall it was such an amazing night. Guests told me they loved the beautiful venue and the food was on point. I would recommend this venue to everyone. Thank you for everything!!
Spectacular in every way. Between the incredible view, awesome food and Howard we chose the best venue for our wedding. Our friends are still raving about the cocktail hour! My husband and I had looked at 10 venues and on July 4th in the pouring rain we stumbled into The View on the Hudson. Howard greeted us and took his time getting to know us asking just the right questions. It is a big decision to decide where you are going to hold the most special day in your life and once we spoke to Howard we both knew this was the place. The staff, the chef, everyone was awesome leading up to the event and on our special day. Howard is very easy to communicate with, extremely prepared and he made sure our wedding day was smooth sailing. The food was excellent. My husband is Italian so having a lot of food was important for him and my goodness we had a spread. I had asked for a sandwich before the reception to make sure I ate something and with out hesitation Howard brought me a beautiful plate. Also during our cocktail hour he hand picked items and brought up to us to be sure we had plenty to eat. All our friends thought the cocktail hour was dinner. They were in for a treat. Howard met with us a few times before the big day, worked with us on our budget, and was very easy going about allowing us to come the venue and feel out the space before the wedding. We were in complete ease knowing we had The View on The Hudson. We felt like we were part of an extended family. The View on the Hudson is one class act. I can happily say from one bride to another--you will love the View and all it has to offer. Thank you to all for making out wedding so very special. --Jessica Schneider
My husband and I got married at The View this past weekend and the entire experience was absolutely wonderful. From our first meeting with Howard Vaz, he assured us that he would make the (crazy) wedding planning experience as relaxed and stress-free as possible- he was right! Howard was ALWAYS available for us and handled all of the details from the big tasks down to the little stuff. We had both our ceremony and reception at The View. The outdoor ceremony was so romantic and beautiful- one of the reasons I HAD to get married there was due to the breathtaking views of the water. The outside was set up with white chairs facing a wedding alter and the river- my guests still will not stop telling us how gorgeous the scenery was. Howard had graciously met with my whole family and wedding party the evening prior to ensure the ceremony was flawless and everybody knew the processional and order of the ceremony (phew!) And the reception was just as fabulous. The staff at the View were FANTASTIC- my hubby and I don't drink and the bartender Mary dug up some energy drinks for us out of her own personal stash! How sweet?! Our waitress Theresa was also wonderful and was always asking us what we needed and if she could get us anything. And Howard spent the entire reception making sure we were taken care of. He was there the entire time!!! He helped us all line up for intro's, and helped organize the first dances and cake cutting. You know how when a big event ends you often walk away thinking it had gone much different than you thought it was? For over a year I had envisioned my wedding to be the perfect evening, and in the end, it was even BETTER than I had dreamed it would be.
A Perfect Venue for the Perfect DayReviewed on 9/07/2015 sara b
We just were married at The View on August 16, 2015. From the moment we met Ralph in October of 2014, we knew it was the best place for our summer wedding. We started our day early, and ended early evening, and Ralph and his team were more than attentive, kind, helpful, generous and the absolute best. For our small-medium size wedding (110 guests), The View felt cozy and grand. We enjoyed the view (obviously), the food, the staff and our entire day. Although we did not get to try everything at cocktail hour, we keep hearing from our guests that everything was incredible and delicious. Ralph goes ABOVE and BEOYND to make you feel like comfortable and as relaxed as can be on your wedding day. Everything is on schedule and he makes it just flow flawlessly. He even reminded us to eat and to take a step back and enjoy the day. If I could do it all over again today, I would! Thank you, Ralph, Joseph and The View on the Hudson for making our day as spectacular as it was!
PERFECT VENUE FOR A PERFECT WEDDING!!! We never thought we would get wondeful compliments from our guests about our wedding. We just wanted to have a simple celebration but Howard made a difference that made it so Perfect! All we heard was the food is very good, the service is amazing, they were treated very nice, and the place is awesome.Everybody loved it. Thanks to a wonderful Maitre'D, Howard you're the best! Will definitely recommend you and this place to all couples out there who's planning for their wedding.
Absolutely AmazingReviewed on 6/29/2015 Kelly P
I would highly recommend this place to everyone! I can't say enough about the venue and Howard. We fell in love when we first saw it and ended up booking it for our wedding. I'm so happy we did. Howard was such a pleasure to work with. Our wedding was absolutely amazing. Weddings are stressful and yet Howard made it so easy and stress free. Everyone kept commenting on how they loved the food and the service. I would recommend this place for any special occasion!!! I can't thank them enough for making our day so special!
The Most Beautiful & Best Day Ever!!Reviewed on 11/15/2014 Andrea Celeste Patricia B
Our wedding was FANTABULOUS!!!! The venue was beautiful. The view of the Hudson River, mountains and blue skies were absolutely gorgeous for our fall themed wedding. It was the perfect day for an outside ceremony. Howard Vaz is the best! His guidance, hospitality, and professionalism made it even more perfect. From day one, he made himself readily available for any questions or concerns. From ceremony to reception, Howard kept his staff on point. Myself and the bridal party arrived later than expected but Howard kept the flow smooth and seamless. We didn't miss a beat. He accommodated us in every way. He worked every corner to make sure our guests had food and drinks. He made sure me and my husband had quiet time in the bridal suite while enjoying the tasty hors d‘oeuvres and assortments of fruits and veggies. We got to bask in the moment for a moment. Our guests were extremely satisfied with the service, delicious food and 5-hour open bar with premium liquor ;-). The staff was awesome!! We're all still re-living the day. If you're looking for a venue that can eliminate the stress and provide half of your planning by offering space, food, drinks, cake, scenery, exceptional service, and professionalism, for a reasonable cost, then look no further. The View On The Hudson is your place!! As Howard would say, “You worry about the small stuff, we got everything else covered”. Thanks Howard. Yeh mon! ;-) Sincerely, Andrea & Sam September 7, 2014
If I had more daughters...Reviewed on 10/29/2014 eti l
If I had more daughters, their weddings would be at The View, too! The entire team, from Maitre D' Ralph, to Chef David, Bartender Paul, Captain Theresa & her amazing team, to Cesar and Patty and Joseph & Howard... each and everyone of them go out of their way to make you feel extra special. No matter how many times I called or how many questions I had, they were always so patient and extremely helpful. I love this place so much I've rented it out for parties every year for the past 6 years. You are literally feet away from the Hudson River with spectacular views of the Tappan Zee Bridge and Westchester coastline. The folks work with you because they want you to be happy. You will be more than happy. You will be ecstatic!
Our WeddingReviewed on 10/10/2014 Jackie L
My Husband and I had our wedding there at the end of this September. Howard greeted us and was there to help us from start to finish, as well as attended to our families every need. I never have saw staff so attentive at a wedding. I was worried that our guests would wonder into the other room and leave the main room (dance floor) for the bar, but that never really happened (because the staff was that attentive). We had a couple of guest that needed extra things/services, and Howard remembered it and gave them extra attention which made that most difficult guests very pleased. Not only was the service wonderful, the venue itself was perfect. It was wonderful to have the whole place to ourselves and all our guests were wowed by the rooms and decoration. A lot of Brides and Grooms are now interested in new and different ideas to have weddings which is neat, but it was really nice have an old school elegant venue. We had many, many guests come up to us and tell us it was the best wedding ever and I really think they meant it!!! Even if they didn't we truly had our perfect wedding there.
Amazing doesn't even come close to the word!!Reviewed on 7/08/2014 Samantha S
Our wedding was here on June 22, 2014. We got an amazing deal for a Sunday wedding. Howard made our day extremely special. From day one, he was extremely accommodating. He kept telling us, you...worry about the small stuff...and leave the hard stuff to us. We did exactly that!! The view from the cocktail area, the ballroom and ceremony area were exquisite. If your looking for a venue that gives it's all, amazing food, and right on the water....this is your place!! Howard made sure we were having a great time, and he also made sure we made time to eat ourselves. God knows, bride and grooms never eat...but luckily we got to. Haha. Our family was taken care of as well. Everything went amazing, and more!! I would highly recommend this place for a wedding, or any event that should be special
Great wedding ask for RalphReviewed on 6/21/2014 Kenneth r
We had a great wedding at the view on the Hudson. By that I have not one single complaint about this venue. We worked with Ralph and he made sure that our wedding was everything that we wanted and more. We had our ceremony at The View on the Hudson. We had it outside and the backdrop was nothing less than magical. Ralph made sure that it ran perfectly and seamlessly. Move ahead to the cocktail hour and the food was amazing they have numerous stations to chose from, and in their standard package you pick four. The food was plentiful and delicious. The drinks were flowing getting everyone primed up for the party. Ralph and his staff were compleat professionals through out the night. The food was amazing, did not hear one single complaint, but received many comments on how good the food was. Ralph was very easy to deal with and made sure that every request that we had was met and that there very no snafus though out the night. He was extremely flexible with us the week of the wedding as far as people canceling on us and then people coming last minute that changed their mind. He is a professional and I would highly recommend requesting him as your matre de. Nothing and I mean nothing went wrong at our wedding, and it was the day that my wife had been dreaming about her whole life, and that had a lot to do with Ralph and his staff.
Beautiful & Unforgetable WeddingReviewed on 8/21/2013 Crystle H
The View On The Hudson hosted one heck of a party! Ralph did an amazing job coordinating efforts with all of our vendors, catered to our every need and ensured that all of our guests had a great time. Throughout the planning process, Ralph answered all our questions, accommodated every one of our requests and followed through with everything he promised. Thanks for everything!
Beautiful Venue and Amazing ServiceReviewed on 7/30/2013 Cheryl R
We got married at The View on the Hudson on July 12, 2013 and everything was simply perfect! We worked with Howard, who did an amazing job planning and organizing our wedding. His impeccable attention to detail, genuine concern for our happiness, and dedicated are unmatched. He went above and beyond expectations. The food was absolutely delicious, and everyone raved about it! The ballroom was beautifully decorated and the servers were all extremely attentive to our guests. With all of the stresses that go along with planning a wedding, we never once had to worry about the venue, reception, or the food, as we knew it would all be fabulous! We highly recommend this venue!! You won't be disappointed.
Amazing food, service and appearance!Reviewed on 6/19/2013 Elisa A
We just had our wedding early June and it was amazing! Ralph took great care of us, the hall looked spectacular with the led lights they had and the food was phenomenal! So many guests were raving about the food and how attentive the servers were. I recommend this place to everyone!
Beautiful setting, fantastic serviceReviewed on 1/16/2013 Mary Cecilia S
We had our wedding at the View in January 2012 (last January). Beautiful setting with huge windows looking up (not across) the Hudson, which was the perfect backdrop for our ceremony since we couldn't have it outside in the winter. The cocktail hour was in the room next door, again looking up the Hudson. Then when the ceremony chairs etc were broken down, the reception was in the large room where the ceremony had been. Harold was fantastic. He's a little set in his ways, but there's good reason - he knows what works. If you don't have an event planner/coordinator, he is perfect for you (he was perfect for us). He timed everything, told us when to go where, and everything went so smoothly. Although they didn't turn on the heat until about an hour or two before the guests were to arrive, so the family members etc who showed up for pre-wedding pictures were cold. Again, that's a winter problem, because it's a big place to heat up. The price was great - it was within an hour of Manhattan and so much less expensive even at that time of year. And more beautiful. Also as someone else mentioned, it's one event at a time so the place is all yours, which is very nice. And the bathrooms were nice, which you might take for granted, but don't! One of the guests is in a band that does a lot of weddings, he said that the steak was the best wedding steak he had ever had - I assume that includes much more expensive venues although I don't know. The bartender didn't know how to make our favorite drink (but many NYC bartenders don't know it either) so stick to the standard drinks. But it's an open bar package for 5 hours, so that was fantastic anyway. There is a nice Hilton nearby (about a 30 minute drive) where we stayed and many of our guests, and had the rehearsal dinner. The cake included in the package was delicious - you go to the bakery for a tasting to try different fillings/flavors. The bakery is famous for doing the Yankees cakes and what not. They somehow got the bows a little off center from each other, which is weird, but the icing was beautifully piped, and it really was a delicious cake so I was very happy with it. It received rave reviews from many guests. We received so many unsolicited compliments (in the context of totally different conversation topics) months later about the venue and the food. It's such a beautiful setting.
Our Wedding was Wonderful!Reviewed on 10/23/2012 Danielle M
We had been to previous weddings at The View and knew it would be perfect for us. We worked with Ralph who was thorough and professional throughout the entire process. The night of our wedding everything went so smoothly. The room looked absolutely perfect. We knew what to expect and how our wedding would flow. I had no worries! The food was amazing and my husband and I danced the night away care free. Not to mention the amazing pictures we were able to capture outside! We could not have asked for more. The even was perfect and this venue is very reasonably priced. Our only regret is that we can't do it all again!
