I attended my best friend's wedding last weekend and our entire bridal party can NOT stop talking about how much fun we had! The food was out of this world ( especially the cocktail hour ) The place looked gorgeous with her color theme and we took tons of pictures inside because it looks like a victorian castle no matter where you go. The service was also great, and the bridal attendant made sure we had enough food and drinks at all times. The cake was delicious and we really have no complaints. - Thank you Excelsior Management for making my best friend's wedding into that storybook wedding she wanted! - Sussan

People do not book anything there please listen to me. My wedding of 183 people was 9-1-13 and I was sooo disappointed and angry this place is horrible.. Let me start with the good because there was 2! The food is good and Alana Levy was very helpful and did as much as she could. Now the bad!!!! First the owner Victor!! He's a crook ,a liar,and extremely sneaky why? well, he tried to charge me $250 for the bridal room,and $5oo for a maitre d' to run my wedding. I was almost all paid for when he added these ridiculous fees all of a sudden. I said I wouldnt pay and I didnt. Then I paid for children ages 4-12 at a lower price and children of age 3 and under were free because they were suppose to get chicken fingers and fries that never happened, they said valet parking and the champagne was complementary and it wasnt I had my guest calling my bridesmaids and husband asking where to park, I had bought sparkling cider to give to a few guest as favors and they served my guest the sparking cider. I had nothing to give those guest as a favor because they used my favors. To make it better I couldnt enjoy my wedding because I kept gettting looked in the bridal suite...weird? no dangerous!!...After my first dance as a married couple I went to change my dress I closed the door and couldnt open the door because the lock was broken I was locked in that little room for 20 mins thank God someone was looking for me and they saw what happend and called Alana to get me out. Victor was called, he came to unlocked in the bridal suite with a credit card.When I spoke to Victor to ask him to please give me that extra time at the end of the party because it was time wasted he said no that he could only give me 15 min,mind you we were talking about this in the same room, at this point my husband,victor, and I are locked in again because hes trying to fix the door;again time wasted. Many of my guest called me the next day to complain that the food buffet table was a disaster and unorganized I also had guest picking up their own plates. Please do not book here!!!!!!!!

Victor, Eddie, Alana and staff provided great service on the day of our event. My family had a great time celebrating my in laws 25th anniversary. The venue is beautiful, the staff is efficient and accommodating, and the food is delicious.

Just had our wedding there 5/25/2013 and it was a nightmare! Victor is an incompetent liar who does not know how to run a catering hall. We had wedding crashers from a downstairs party, the wrong food served at cocktail hour, not enough seating for guests, dirty bathrooms and inadequate amount of servers. We originally booked with Alana who was wonderful but smart enough to walk out but unfortunately for us it was two days before our wedding! We were left with the owner Victor who did nothing but hide in his office all night.

I had my baby shower at The Excelsior on April 21st of this year and it was absolutely wonderful! I was so pleased by the way the room was decorated ( pretty in pink for a girl ), and my guests were really impressed since they had never been to any events here before. The food was great, especially the Penne a la Vodka. Alana was the sales manager that i booked with and she was all smiles. She made me feel so comfortable throughout the whole process & because of her knowledge, we covered every detail i didnt even remember to discuss. My family would definitely recommend this place for anyone having a future event! We will be going back when our little girl is born. Thanks again!

I just had my wedding on June 9th recommended for a girl that works there..I can say that was the worse decision I could take for my event...it was extremely overpriced and I didn't have what I was promised! ! 1)I paid a capitan's fee and I never had one in charge of my wedding. 2)he try to make me pay 20% tip instead of 18% and Victor not even give the tips to the waiters ..they're only paid $50 a night 3) I had 3 waiters only and they were working in other 2 events at the same time...not enough food in my coktel hour and they never offered the app in trays(white glove) like they put in my contract...soda was flat,horrible service 4)when we try to speak to him,he just send us a waiter and after 45 min he show up with very bad way to resolve the problem...was very rude!! Definitely I don't. Recommend this place Victor is very unprofessional and unhonest!!! They cheat me and ruined my day!!"" Is a shame that such a beautiful place is very very bad managed!!!

I have attended an event there - The place is amazing - It is very traditional atmoshphere and the service was amazing - The food was delicious.
The Italian Marble's giving a place extra boosts.

It was nice experience. I would definitly suggest my friends to have an events there.

Excelsior of Saddlebrook NJ is now under new Management. New Management is doing a great job. The place is more elegant from inside and outside - The new sign is eye catching.
I had attended a friend wedding last Saturday - Tinoco Rosado - Everything was up to the point. Loved Attrium Cocktail room and La-Versille reception hall. The Florentine room is designed beautifully for Wedding elegance. This was my second experience at the Excelsior - Food, atmosphere and elegance all are there. Price for wedding nobody can beat it. I loved it. It was very memorable event for me.

Great Job Excelsior Management!!!!!!

I recently attended a event at the Excelsior and have to say that the my experience was not that good. The food was your typical catering hall variety. All of the guest were uncomfortable due to the fact that the A/C was not functioning properly. After speaking with the staff workers, I found out that one of the guests was accused of breaking the temperature controls, when in fact the A/C has been not functioning properly all along. I also spoke to a guest that attended an event 3 weeks earlier at the Excelsior and he told me that the A/C was not working properly at that event also. Obviously the management at the Excelsior has knowledge of the situation but refuses to do anything about it and continues to book event there. I found the management to be dishonest ,unprofessional and very rude. If you would like to have an enjoyable event, I would highly recommend staying away from this place.

People like this place, but personally I think it is over priced for typical food. I really do not find anything special about them, so at the price they charge I'm sure you can find a better place with better food, or an equal place with cheaper food.
