Worse service I have ever had. During the cocktail hour they only served food for about a half hour. After that then people can only have what was left. In case someone came late then that person would be limited to the remaining food, which means that person wouldn't be able to enjoy popular food, like calamari. In addition, it takes an hour just to get soda brought to the table, if the waiter actually listens, and to bring additional food. For example, when the main course was served, some tables got food when they brought out the first cart. Then by the time the second cart was brought out the tables that got food from the first cart were already finished eating and had to wait before the entertainment can be started. As for the drink, I had to ask twice to get a refill as the waiter I initially asked never brought it.

This happened during a regular party where there weren't a lot of people. The service must be even worse during a wedding. I will cross this restaurant off my list and stay with restaurants where I've had better experience.

Ohhh.. What a night... We cannot thank the staff of Russo's on the bay enough for our December 10th, 2010 wedding. It was above and beyond. Frank Russo, really helped make our night possible. Kelly the concierge guided us along the way and Joe the maitre'd was my sidekick that night. Your team is awesome and i tell everyone that they need to get married there. Its been a month and people still call to tell me how great the food, the service and the place was. We want to just say Thank You from the bottom of our hearts. - Silvana and Michael Kozak <3

I have had all 3 of my daughters Sweet Sixteens at Russo's, as well as two bridal showers, two weddings and one baby shower. No other catering hall comes even close to Russo's delicious and generous portions of food, excellent quality of service and impeccable cleanliness. No wonder all the other catering halls try to imitate Russo's. From the beginning with Villa Russo, to newer facilities such as Carosello Restaurant and Giardino Restaurant and future projects due to open in Fall of 2009 VETRO, the Russo family will always be number one in catering. You have to experience it to truly appreciate it.

The service, food, and ambiance were very impresive as well as the bar. I once complimented the owner on the clenliness of the establishment and was given a tour of the facility, the cleanest kitchen I have ever seen any establishment. incredibly maintained facility.

If they are considered expensive, I know why!

Russo's on the Bay is quite simply the most magnificent place to have your wedding. Yes it is on Cross Bay Blvd and the ballrooms have no windows but do you want guests looking outside or enjoying your party? Every detail is taken care of at Russo's on the Bay and the owner is ALWAYS there. The food is delicious and the menu is extensive with over 11 entrees offered to your guests. I have never been to a "bad" wedding at Russo's. People who talk badly about it usually do so because they can't afford it.

I had my wedding there in October 2004. We received nothing but compliments on everything from the service right down to the food. If I ever had another event to be planned I would not hesitate to go there.

PROS: Food is very very good.
CONS: No cons

This is a great place to have your wedding, sweet sixteen, or some other occasion. This is a very bautiful place to get married. They have a great catering staff. The food is good and the outside looks gorgous. You can take great pictures here. They are very expensive though.

I just got back from a wedding reception at Russo's on the Bay and it was spectacular. The food, from the cocktail hour to the venetian table, was superb. I was so full from the huge variety of food from the cocktail hour that I couldn't even eat my dinner, but oh, did it look good and I'll enjoy it tomorrow thanks to my little doggie bag. The service is great and you get your drinks right away. They aren't a restaurant. They only do weddings and other affairs. They are excellent.
