    I was such a lucky bride to get to have my wedding at Soundview Caterers! From start to finish Michael and his team make you feel important and like family. The venue is family run and not at all like a typical Long Island wedding "factory" venue. They only do one wedding at a time which was so important to me. From the moment I walked into Soundview I knew I wanted to get married there. The venue is clean and has freshly re-done wood floors throughout-no carpet! The outdoor space is so beautifully landscaped and it was so amazing to get married right on the Long Island sound. I also picked here because if it rained and I had to have my ceremony indoors it was also a beautiful option with its floor to ceiling windows overlooking the sound. It actually did rain on my wedding day but stopped about an hour prior to my ceremony. Michael had his staff out there cleaning off the chairs for my guests and I'm so grateful for him working hard so that I could have my dream ceremony outside. The food was also amazing, everything we had was so delicious and our guests raved about it too. I also appreciated that the price was all inclusive, no hidden service fees. It was refreshing to have that. As a Soundview bride you can customize the lobby to however you want to decorate it and you also have total control over the menu. All my guests raved about what an awesome wedding we had. Soundview is the ultimate definition of class. Thank you to Michael, Nick, and Mia and the rest of the Soundview staff for giving us the best night of our lives. We cannot thank you enough!! -Elena and frank

    I got married here at 5/19/17. My experience with Soundview was interesting. The day of my wedding was beautiful and Soundview is beautiful. The food was absolutely amazing and people still tell me it was the best food they ever had at a wedding but with that being said, I didn't have the best time planning and working with Soundview. They never responded quickly To my emails and it got to the point where I was sending multiples of the same email just to get a response. There were about 4 different receptionists since when we booked in a year and a half ago and if I told one something and that one left, the new one never knew what was going on. Plenty of things were miscommunicated that day and I was blamed for it! For example I was told on numerous occasions someone would be able to set up my centerpieces for me (they were mason jars with sand or water) - the day of my rehearsal I bring everything and tell him what I needed and he tells me I need to come and Do my centerpieces!!! I was so mad! Thankfully my mother in law saved the day. Michael also made plenty of jokes at my expense about my "multiple emails" in front of his entire staff which I thought was very inappropriate! The day of my wedding I had Dominic as my maitr'd and let's just say he and I did not mix well! At one point I asked him not to talk to me because he was soo rude and was talking down to pretty much Everyone around. He kept telling me how my DJ was running late and how I needed to get in contact with them (mind you, I am trying to take pictures with my family) he finally got a hold of the dj himself and was pretty much yelling at the DJ. He told me multiple times how late people were which I thought was very unprofessional. Tell someone other than the bride. He then told my photographer he needed to stop with pictures because I needed to go hide. He put me in a room for 45 minutes! Even though I told Him it was okay and I wanted to finish as much pictures as I can, he didn't want to hear it. They also had 1 can left of my husbands drink of choice (when we told them this is the only thing he drinks!) At 9:30pm! After telling them Someone needed to go to the store because it was a huge problem, magically they appeared with more! When we confronted Dominic with any issue he was very confrontational and wasn't willing to hear it. My sister also said Dominic was extremely rude to her when she asked a question. I know this seems like a harsh review but as a positive thing, my guests had no idea what was happening behind scenes and had the best time ever. My bridal attendant Cynthia was also fabulous! I don't want to make it seem like I hated Soundview, I didn't but some things were just not okay! If Soundview cleans up on their customer service they will be around for a very long time!

    I had my son's wedding at Soundview and have nothing but wonderful things to say. The venue is beautiful, the food was excellent and so was the service. Michael was very easy to deal with and very accommodating. We all had a wonderful time and everyone commented on how beautiful it was, especially having the ceremony outside. Highly recommend!

    My husband and I got married at Soundview Caterers on September 10th, 2016… and choosing Soundview was by far the best decision we could have made. Soundview is simply stunning. The elegant ceremony area with breathtaking water view and the grand and pristine reception room make this place impossible to beat. The magnificence of the structure can only be matched by the people who run it. Michael and his staff are a class act. They are professional and friendly and willing to go above and beyond to make your wedding day everything you hoped and planned for and then some!! From the big things like answering every question my husband had (and he had a lot) and making sure our day ran smoothly so we didn’t have to, to the small things like making sure my mother had the beer she wanted and fluffing my dress as I walked down the aisle they were there for us every step of the way. Hosting only one wedding at a time, Soundview truly devotes themselves to every bride and groom. As a bride it was very important for me to be able to see my ideas for the day come to life and I could not have done that to the degree that I did anywhere else. I cannot recommend Soundview Caterers enough!! THANK YOU SOUNDVIEW CATERERS!!

    Soundview Caterers was the first venue that we visited on our 2+ month journey of looking and it remained as the top option for us as we visited almost a dozen other sites across LI. Michael (owner and head chef) and Lindsay were SO accommodating and helpful with every single question I had over a long string of detailed emails. What I loved the most about the Soundview was the fact that I would have been the ONLY bride the WHOLE day! It was a plus that the reception room was absolutely gorgeous, the view of the LI sound was beautiful, and the whole space is brand new and clean! We attended the Bridal Show which helped us view the room in all of its elegance, but also made us realize that it might be just a little too small for our growing guest list, particularly during the cocktail hour. They hold a maximum of 250 guests, but we have over 300+ on our list which we would be stressing out in fitting. Michael gave us a VERY reasonable quote, considering it was a Saturday and I could sense that I would have been taken care of by their staff.
