What Our Customers Are Saying

Terrific!

This note is in regards to the baby shower we hosted on July 28, 2018. The party was perfect, there was not one thing we could complain about! The room was beautiful, clean, neat and well arranged. The food, champagne, cocktails and cake were delicious. A special thanks to John and Victor who were our "dynamic duo." They took care of our every want and need in a pleasant and professional manner. You are very lucky to have such wonderful employees. Thank you again for a great day and you can be sure we will recommend the Watermill to our friends and family.

The Perfect Day!

Hi Tom, Kaitlyn, Shaun, Anthony and all of the Watermill staff, Jesse and I are just starting to unwind from the wedding whirlwind and we would like to take this time to thank your staff for the amazing service on our wedding day. We are still receiving compliments from guests who were floored by the impeccable food, service, ambiance, and entertainment from that special night. Thank you for hand picking the best of the best to make our night perfect. You were honest and straight forward from beginning to end, and your top priority was to make Jesse and me feel happy on our wedding day. You're the best!

An Absolute Recommendation

We just had our wedding at the Watermill on New Year's Day. I cannot express how impressed (and I don't impress easily) I was with how everything went. My wife and I simply just had to show up. Johnny, Michelle, and Mike were freaking amazing. They kicked absolute ass with every single detail and every idea/request we had. Everyone is still messaging us raving about the wedding. If I could go to more weddings here with those three working it, I would go every time.

Wedding of a Lifetime

The Watermill was amazing! I couldn’t believe how accommodating and friendly every person was that worked with us. They gave us so much for an amazing price. They offered the most food, drink, and exit stations than anywhere else we looked. The Watermill blows away all the other venues we saw. The lighting, the champagne tree, and the food were spectacular! I feel I need to write more...20 appetizers, 5 stations for cocktail hour, 10 choices for dinner! Open bar, specialty drinks, and chocolate shot glasses with dessert. We had our own personal chef, waiter, and a bridal attendant. They were all so nice and accommodating. People said it was the best wedding they had ever been to! Thank you so much Watermill!

Flawless and Superb!

We booked the Watermill for our daughter's wedding...It was absolutely incredible. The gardens are breathtaking and we were fortunate that after a week of rain, we were able to have the ceremony outside. Guests were welcomed with a champagne tree, and following the amazing ceremony, they were treated to an unbelievable cocktail hour. The dinner was incredible. Five entree choices, all wonderful. The Watermill offers a passing dessert presentation...the waitstaff just keeps bringing out breathtaking desserts! As guests were leaving, there was a donut wall with some really amazing donuts. A word about the staff: they were all so accommodating, polite, profession and anticipated our every need. A friend of mine whose family is in the wedding business called a couple of days afterward to say that she was blown away by the affair: she said everything was flawless. And it was.

Ken
The Perfect Venue

I am so happy I chose Watermill as my wedding venue. Their professionalism, dedication to their couples and flexibility ensure your dream wedding becomes a reality. As I look back on my wedding day I am so grateful to Tom, the Maitre D', my bridal attendant and all the staff for all their hard work. Everything was gorgeous! My guest loved the venue, but especially loved the food. They say it's the best cocktail hour they have ever had. That really makes me happy. I have been to several weddings were the food was not great and it really stands out in your mind, so to have my guest gush over the venue and food confirms that I picked the ideal place for my big day.

A Dream Come True

Our wedding day was a dream come true thanks to Watermill! The staff was incredible! As for the venue itself the renovations are absolutely gorgeous and fit our style completely. Everything feels so modern and romantic and classy. The gardens are beautiful and we thankfully had perfect weather to have the ceremony outside. The food is outstanding and that is really hard to come by. The cocktail hour options are all delicious and our guests were provided a menu that had 10 options to choose from for dinner. We had so many guests coming up to us saying they were blown away by all the food and how delicious everything was! We were not only incredibly happy with how Watermill treated us, our bridal party, and our guests but also how well they worked with ALL of our vendors to make the amazing night come together. The staff was such a pleasure to work with on all levels and if we had to go through the process again we would pick Watermill every time.

Beyond Amazing!

Many thanks to Brian Fingerman and the staff at the Watermill for doing a SUPERB job making our daughter’s July wedding beyond amazing! Your incredible attention to detail, delectable food so beautifully presented in abundance, and making sure everything ran smoothly from start to finish made this most important event in our lives a truly spectacular evening to remember and treasure. We’re still getting calls from guests saying it was the best wedding ever! We wholeheartedly agree! If you’re planning a wedding or special occasion, call Brian at the Watermill!

Joyce
Above and Beyond!

My husband and I cannot say enough amazing things about The Watermill! On a recommendation from a friend who also got married there, we visited and immediately fell in love. We were captured by Watermill’s modern, yet still classic and timeless, design and atmosphere. No other venue we had seen even came close to comparing! My husband and I had our wedding reception in the Vanderbilt room this past July 2018, and the entire day was a dream come true. Almost three months later, we are still getting compliments about the fantastic food and cocktail hour! Our guests cannot stop raving about how delicious everything was, how beautiful the venue is, and what a great time they had.

Couldn't Be Happier!

My wife and I couldn't be more happy with our wedding at Watermill Caterers (4/27/18). Everything from the initial tour to discussing our options was relaxed and fun. We always felt like we were in good hands and that our requests would be met. The renovations they've done are incredible, if you're looking for clean and modern like we were this place will take your breath away. The menu options will please any crowd. We got so many compliments on the food, both for the cocktail hour and dinner. Honestly, we can't wait to be invited to a wedding here so we can enjoy it as guests too! We heard nothing but compliments from our friends and family regarding their waitstaff. They placed our decorations exactly how we wanted and really make the place look amazing. We couldn't recommend this place enough.
