I just had my wedding there on October 17th and everythign went great! The staff was very professional from the day when we first booked the place til our wedding day. I have been to many weddings in the North Jersey area and I have to say that the staff at the Venetian are so professional and very helpful with any questions or concerns that one may have. I dont have any regrets and it is truly a beautiful venue with delicious food and an awesome Venetian hour!

Just read article that appeared in north jersey.com & bergen record. The article contained info and alert regarding contamination of businesses located near the Passaic river in Garfield. Knowing that the Venetian is located in this area, many family members have call with concern.With my wedding upcoming in spring of 2011 it has me thinking about changing the location of my wedding.

We had our wedding there on August 19th. It was everything we wanted and more. Looking back at the pictures and thinking about that day, I can't imagine a more perfect place. When we called in December 2009 and heard that they didn't have any weekend days left for the summer of 2010, I decided to go anyway to check it out. After walking into the palazzo room I was convinced this was the place where I had to have my wedding. So a Thursday wedding it was and I don't think there was one guest who left that night wondering why anybody would have their wedding on a Thursday,just to have it at the Venetian. The place spoke for itself and so did every detail from start to finish. Thank you everyone at the Venetian!

The Venetian was amazing. I had my wedding there in November and my guests have been going on about it ever since. There are no words to describe the level of service that was given. Every dollar was well spent. (A little pricey for a bride on a budget but worth it, I could have paid much more and got less.)
Yes the surrounding area isn't the prettiest but as soon as you walk in the reception hall you forget all about it. The food went on and on. There was not one thing you could have asked for that they didn't have. (Pizza, mini burgers, sushi bar, pasta stations, vodka bar w/ caviar, carving stations, antipasti station, etc...) The servers there were great with my guests. Even my own guests wanted to tip them extra because they were so nice and attentive.
My bridal attendant was great. She was by my side the whole time with drinks, food, carrying my extra heavy bouquet. She was my white knight the whole night. And Adriatic our matradee took great care of my parents the whole time and made sure that there table had anything they wanted.
The venetian desert hour made jaws drop. Two chocolate fountains, cookies with our initials and names on them, cotton candy machines, popcorn machines, a Hagen-Dazs cart with boxes of their ice cream, gelato cones, milk shakes, desert mini burgers made of doughnuts and cake, mini fries made of angel food cake drizzled with red raspberry sauces, mini desert chicken nuggets made with cake and coconut, a gorgeous floor show of banana jubilee set aflame, etc...
Even on the way out there was kiosk cart in the hall serving coffee and tea in togo cups for my guest as they left for the night.

The most amazing place ever.

Driving down River Road is a BIG turn-off! Entering the banquet
facility thru a side door is also a BIG turn-off! The parking
situation needs much improvement. The New Ballroom is
"Greek Chic" over kill and to big to host the average size wedding. One of the bands we were planning to use warned us
that the sound is a problem. To much marble..not good for
proper sound. Although some people like this place, we choose another venue.

I fully fell in love with the new ballroom. What a mistake..I did not do my Wedding Homework. Aha! the room is love at first sight..
Take Note; Talk about poor service and presentation..you'll find it at the Venetian..It's truly trouble in catering land! The sound in the room needs much improvement..For the money we spent on our band it was was unfortunate-- the room is to big to hold the right sound. Next was our meeting with our party planner..New York based..She literally stated that the
Venetian would not have been her first NJ Choice..We should have taken her advice..Next the florist..Need lots of flowers to fill the room..Need giant pockets to put a dent in the flower budget. Then the big day!!!! Parking was a big complaint among our guests. And River Road was not a Pretty Sight.
My expectations were not met. ADVICE..when shopping make sure you take all details into play. The location is key..the room design.. the food presentation.. the overall experience..the Banquet Manager you meet.. The reputation of the caterer. Lesson Learned. `````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````

Exceptional !! I agree with Gina, the staff was always friendly and willing to work with you.
I just had my 25th Anniversary party there 11-8-09 and I can't thank them enough for
everything. Mike the owner was great, he worked with me and made my day memorable not just for me, but for all my guests!!! Some places treat you different after they get your money but not here, you are royalty to the very end!

My daughter's wedding is booked for the Venetian in June, and our experiences have been quite different from Rick S's. We have gone there about 5 times to show various family members around, and the staff has been friendly and helpful in answering our many questions. They truly have been nothing but wonderful.

Place was pretty but the person showing me around was not friendly and seemed rush me out. I felt like the person would not give me any dates and it was a chore for him/her to crack open their date book. He then actually tried to push a thursday on me being that he was booked til 2011. I liked the place so much that I was considering booking but since my experience was so uneventful I left disliking the place . As the old saying goes "You get more bees with honey"

We have had the New Jersey Boxing Hall of Fame Induction and Awards ceremonies at the Venetian for many years and it just keeps getting better and better. The service and food are outstanding.

Several people that have attended over the years have also had affair their as well and they all love it.

Went to the most amazing wedding banquet at the Venetian few years ago and everyone is STILL talking about how pronominal it was. The halls are roomy, elegant and the outdoor garden was beautiful. The food at dinner was OK. By dinner time, everyone was probably already stuffed from the amazing cocktail buffet - where every kind of food can be found and were very fresh and tasty. And as mentioned by another reviewer the incredible Venetian Extravaganza Dessert simply amazing - all the adults felt like they were in a sweets fantasyland - even fit for Royalty. I was hoping another one of our friends or relatives would have their wedding banquet there so we can have the same experience again! If you want to pick a place to impress - this place is it.

My husband and I have been to many elegant weddings. When my daughter and son-in-law choose the Venetian for their wedding, we were a little nervous. We had never been there before. We wanted a Top Shelf Venue. We wanted exceptional service, outstanding food, and a beautiful elegant hall.
The Venetian catered to our every whim. Our guests were amazed and impressed. Everyone called to tell us that it was the best wedding they ever attended.
Our sincere thanks to the owners and staff for making all our dreams for this wedding come true.
Sincerely, Donna & Al

Very elaborate decor, not my style but nice none the less. The cocktail hour and dessert buffet alone would satisfy, quite simply one of the best I've had.

I recently attended a wedding at the Venetian. It was beautiful. The decor was fantastic. The cocktail hour was amazing. The food during the cocktail hour was delicious. I thought the food at dinner was ok, but the cocktail hour was better. The Venetian Extravaganza Dessert was INCREDIBLE! If your event has this on the menu - STAY FOR IT!!

The building is in a not-so-great area, but the inside more than makes up for it!!

The Venetian on River Rd is a great catering hall. The decor is beautiful inside and out, and the food is delicious. My fiance's former employer always held their holiday party there and everyone had a great time. Their menu is pretty well balanced, and offers more than some of the bigger places in the area. If you want to have a party here, the prices are very reasonable. Their staff is very pleasant and attentive.

The only downside is the location off of River Road, because it is in a very industrial part of the city.

PROS: Pleasant Staff, Delicious Food
CONS: Location

I was a maid of honor in a late November wedding at the Venetian in Garfield, NJ. The surrounding area is not great, but the place itself is very nice. They can handle seatings of up to a thousand guests. The cocktail hour was the best, with every type of food imagineable in different stations like pasta and carving. There was a full open bar and a vodka ice shoot as well. It was a little difficult to get a seat during the cocktail hour. The food during the wedding is OK, I liked the cocktail hour food better. The dance floor was spacious. The staff at the Venetian were excellent, always making sure that we were happy and satisfied. They attended to all the details so that the bride didn't have to worry. There was a nearby Marriott where we stayed after the festivities.

PROS: great food, loved the cocktail hour
CONS: surrounding neighborhood

Valet parkers stole my GPS out of my benz. Staff was rude to guests when they asked Carlos the security officer where the bathroom was he responded "Can't you read the F***ing sign?" We hired an expensive DJ organization with a fine reputation. They fell behind schedule because the stupid staff made them walk through a kitchen full of mazes filled with tables, chairs and people that made it too small to fit gear effeciently, our party suffered as a result. They denied parking at the closer entrance for the entertainment. We also found out the house caterer blocked the entrance for our entertainment. Our affair started later because of what the venitian did. Why don't you pick on me instead of a helpless DJ who happens to be hired to work on your property? You bunch of bullies. Pick on someone your own size, I can buy your your whole family.
