This place is definitely very nice and has great views, but I was very unimpressed with the staff. After waiting about 30 minutes to see the banquet manager, he seemed somewhat uninterested in listening to what I actually wanted and was trying to get me to do everything the way he wanted. If I am going to pay their outrageous prices for a wedding, it should be MY wedding.

My husband and I were married at Glen Island in December of 2009. Rocco immediately made us feel at ease and that we would be "taken care of". He followed through with every word. The space was beautifully decorated for the holidays, service was 5 star, and food was INCREDIBLE...we have not stopped receiving compliments on the Arthur Avenue italien station and carved meats at cocktail hour. Even when our reverand was running behind schedule, he calmed my nervous husband down! There is nothing they cannot handle. We would recommend them to anyone...truly a beautiful experience. Only con, I ordered a very simple cake...and the cake was made very poorly!!! Luckily my florist had enough flowers left over to cover some of the major flaws. I would order a professional cake, if you are a cake person...oh, and the cordial/international coffee/tea/pastry table was beautifully displayed but the room was not decorated so you may need to consider that!

I got married at Glen Island in Oct 2008. I had such a great experience with Glen Island. Rocco was so professional and easy to work with. The service was impeccable on my wedding day. Everything went according to plan and it made my wedding super special. My guests raved about the food as well. I will always recommend people to get married at this place because it's so beautiful.

I had my wedding there in July 2008 and WOW described everything. We dealt with Rocco and he was a pleasure. He really got to know us and out style He made sure that we had everything we liked at our wedding. The Terrace room is gorgeous, food is amazing, cocktail hour is to die for, and our cake was stunning! I definitely made the right choice and I am so glad we had our wedding at Glen Island. Our bridal attendant and Maitre'D John was amazing!!
I can't say enough positive words about Glen Island

I was a guest at a wedding here last summer. It was wonderful in almost every way. (OK - the mayor of NR forgot to show up to marry them so a judge who was a guest had to do it). But other than that major snafu, it was the perfect wedding. And that snafu had nothing to do with the place but with the mayor.

I've been to Glen Island on 2 occassions. The cocktail hour is one of the best I've seen. There is alot to choose from. The space in the cocktail room is a little tight. The service is great. The seated dinner is not as good as the cocktail hour food. The main entrees are just ok in my book. One event had the Viennese hour and those desserts were great, but I also attended an event in which the dessert plate was served instead. I prefer the Viennese, as the dessert plate is not as tasty and they are tiny. The cake from Glen Island is stale and tasteless. The drinks are really good and the location is beautiful inside and out.

My fiance and I have looked at so many places to have our wedding. Then, my mom reminded me of all of the times I spent as a kid at Glen Island Park and the times we went to functions at the old Glen Island Casino. So we made an appointment to meet with Martin, the banquet manager. Immediately, we loved the place. Great location. Lovely design and interior. And not to mention Martin and the receptionist (forgot her name - sorry) definitely made us feel welcome.

What I loved the most was that it was not your typical cookie-cutter wedding factory.

We're now working on getting money together to set the date and make our first deposit. I CAN'T WAIT!

PROS: Location, Design, Food Selection, Friendly Staff (THANKS MARTIN!)
CONS: No taste testings - but friends and family have been there and loved it
