Trumpets At The Gate Reviews

Trumpets at the Gate far exceeded our expectations! Though we had to travel a bit far, it was definitely worth it as we wanted a romantic, small wedding (less than 60 people). The venue is located in a beautiful area in Eastport, NY on the dock...
with the ceremony overlooking the water. It is surrounded by nature, flowers, birds and the sea. The venue includes high ceilings with chandeliers, a bar, bathrooms, a bridal suite and large windows with 180 degree view overlooking the water and park.
Paul (our maitre d) and Lance (the manager) were super helpful in answering all of our questions and helping make the day special to what we wanted. Pricing is reasonable and includes cocktail hour, open bar, 2-3 course meal and a three-tiered cake. All of their food is beyond delicious and so was the cake! All of our guests loved it. They do not give you samples beforehand but I highly suggest going to the restaurant next door, Trumpets on the Bay. The entire staff is super friendly and attentive and I can’t thank them enough for making our day so special!

Thank you for helping make such a amazing day. This venue is absolutely gorgeous and after looking exhaustively at venues across long Island I can 100% say Trumpets is the best kept wedding venue secret. Seriously, not only is the location clas...
sy it was right for our budget. They included appetizers, open indoor/outdoor cocktail bar, champagne toast, and cake in there package. For us the fact they they included a beautiful cake saved us a lot of headache.
Lance and D'Anne went above and beyond to accommodate us. The day went so smoothly thanks to the entire team. The person touches is what makes the day so special. My husband and I missed the cocktail/appetizer hour because we were taking photos, but without asking a staff member brought us some appetizers to the bridal suite while we were changing. Thank you Trumpets!

We had a wonderful wedding day! Most of the staff were wonderful and overall we are thrilled with our choice - from food to the gorgeous view and beautifully maintained venue, it was a great place and allowed us to have under 100 people.

We got married here May 6 2017. I was looking to have a small intimate wedding, and it was perfect for us! Beautiful, classy, everyone raved about their food and it was a beautiful sunny day to be on the water! Great service and very helpful. ...

I had my wedding there this past weekend and it was perfect. Laurie did an outstanding job of organizing everything and making sure my day went exactly as planned. Lance was a huge help at recommending food options and making adjustments to the...
menu so we had everything we wanted. The setting is to die for, getting married overlooking the bay is just what I had imagined and I looked everywhere before I found Trumpets. My wedding felt intimate and I loved that I was not being rushed by other brides or in a wedding factory that I feel like some other catering halls are famous for. Additionally the food was fantastic. I have so many guests complement that the food the best they ever had. The appetizers of Duck Tostados were a huge hit as well as the Lobster Risotto and Crab Cakes. Our wedding cake was delicious and as someone who does not like cake I loved it and so did all of our guests. So all in all if you want to have a wedding that is in a beautiful setting, with delicious food, in a laid back atmosphere (yes it is possible) check out Trumpets. They made my wedding night run smoothly and made it a night I and all of my guests will remember.

Perfect spot for small, intimate weddings. Minimum is 60 ppl, max is 120 (low compared to usual LI warehouse-like halls!). We had 70ish; room size was ideal. Can picture 1 or 2 more tables, no more (120 ppl would feel cramped). Only one affair ...
at a time; their full attention on the one event.
I wanted to feel as if we were on vacation for the day; Trumpets hit that mark! Gorgeous, exceptional setting; “beach elegant” (think beachy-without-the-beach). Driftwood-y back deck on the water with boats passing by regularly; beach grass + hydrangeas growing on the side of the building. The main room offers gorgeous bay views with windows on three sides.
Family owned + operated. Lance, one of the owners + our main contact, loves what he does. He knows his kitchen, excellent recommendations. I requested Sauvignon Blanc, he immediately had a case put aside and made sure the bartenders knew to serve it to the bride (me!). The forecast for D-day was iffy at best (by iffy I mean hot-as-hell-with-a-chance-of-storm); Lance kept a close eye on the radar to ensure his staff set everything up appropriately + we wouldn’t end up with a disaster.
Excellent unpretentious white-glove service. Maitre d’ Lori is fantastic! Beforehand, she spent time answering questions without ever showing impatience or exasperation (which I am sure she felt; I was needy). She directed her staff perfectly; got down on the floor to inspect the cleanliness of the dance floor after a glass broke.
When I go to a wedding, I don’t expect much from the food. Dishes are edible, but not often memorable. I didn’t expect Trumpets to be different; they proved me wrong. No tasting, but we ate at their restaurant next door, Trumpets on the Bay, a month prior; this is when we started to get excited!
In addition to various options we selected for cocktail hour (pick 3 from this page, 6 from that column…), we upgraded to include the shellfish display which I highly recommend! I didn’t get to eat much at this time, but was thrilled with the few bites (the duck tostada is a must!). The food was abundant, high quality.
For dinner, soup + salad (Trumpets salad, a great choice) or cold appetizer (the prosciutto + fruit is more fruit + salad than prosciutto). For the entrée, the usual options. We went with the typical Filet Mignon for the meat. Most people ordered it. Hubby loved it. Instead of going with a chicken dish, we selected Long Island duck, since it was an option. I tasted it, excellent (don’t remember last time I had such good duck!). For the fish option, we picked the Sesame-Encrusted Salmon with wasabi sauce. A-mazing. Would be thrilled to order this in a restaurant; would rave about it for days. Each option was outstanding (it’s not just me; I saw a lot of empty plates!).
The cake. We opted to use the in-house baker. We aren’t dessert people, so we trusted Lance, had him pick the filling, icing, etc. All I did was send him a photo of what I wanted it to look like. A delish white cake, fresh raspberry filling, buttercream icing. And the baker achieved the desired look perfectly!
How much? This awesomeness doesn’t come cheap! Definitely pricier than other venues we looked at. That being said, end result was well worth every penny. You get what you pay for; in this case, I am happy we paid more! Couldn’t be happier with our wedding at Trumpets; wouldn’t change a thing. Will be recommending them for years! Trumpets exceeded our expectations!
