      It's hard to put into words just how stellar our wedding day was. People tell you to prepare for blips, as they are bound to happen. Soundview proved those people wrong. Our reception was perfect. From the moment we met Michael, we knew we had found our venue and the team to make our wedding dreams a reality. Michael, his family, and his staff went above and beyond to make our day everything we could ever hope for it to be, and more. We can never thank them enough for their endless patience, creativity, passion for the industry and most importantly, the people who walk through their doors. Soundview is a special place, and we would make the decision a million times over to celebrate this milestone in our lives there.

      My husband and I began our venue search a few months after getting engaged in early 2015, and Soundview was the first venue we went to see in person. We really wanted our wedding to feel intimate and special, so we were hoping to find a venue that held only one event at a time. Soundview fit the bill and we fell in love with it right away, of course we decided to visit other venues just to make sure we weren't jumping the gun. However, even after viewing several other well known, and high end venues, Soundview was by far our favorite. The whole space feels unique separating itself from some of the other “cookie-cutter” venues on Long Island. The Soundview has so much charming character and classic detail. The beautiful crown moldings, stunning chandeliers and brand new hardwood floors really prove that not a single detail was overlooked. In addition, Soundview is newly renovated so it has all of the modern aspects that add customization to your special day, like state of the art colored up-lighting and HD screens that can showcase your love story through a photo slideshow. Obviously one of the best parts of having our wedding at Soundview was the location, tucked away in Bayville, right on the water. The views are stunning and are really emphasized by the floor to ceiling windows allowing everyone to enjoy the scenic beauty of the water as well as the sunset, whether they are inside or outdoors. These are all things that you’ll see right away when you step inside, but lets get to the actual event. Our wedding day could not have gone any more smoothly. Michael (the owner) and Amanda (The Maitre’d), were there every step of the way ensuring that not a thing was out of place. All of the decorative details I dropped off several days before, were arranged throughout the venue better than I could have done it had I been there myself. The food was incredible, our guests still rave about it to this day. The drinks were free flowing and delicious! They even accommodated our “signature drink” request that required some very specific and uncommon ingredients. The staff was courteous, extremely accommodating and always available. The whole event was extremely organized and I really truly owe it to Michael’s expertise and attention to detail. From the first time we stepped foot into Soundview all the way up to the day we actually became husband and wife we were treated as if we were family by Michael and his staff.

      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!
