Testimonials

Last Friday evening was my daughter’s bat mitzvah. The ceremony was on the terrace overlooking the grounds, cocktails throughout the lounge and formal reception in the ballroom. I wanted to let you know how terribly impressed and pleased we were with the entire affair. The surroundings and the food was extraordinary and all of our guests commented as such. I want to especially single out Rose Baez. She is charming, professional and her expertise in guiding us through the process was simply effortless, all due to her.  She swayed with every request, made every effort to aid the vendors we brought in, guided us through your extraordinary menu and made my family and especially my daughter feel special. Once again thank you and the Glen Ridge Country Club for making a family memory we will cherish.

Once again you and your staff outdid yourselves! Thank you so much for paying close attention to every detail at our holiday dinner party last night. From hors d'oeuvres and raw bar to the soufflé everything was not good - it was phenomenal! Great job!

Thanks to you and the entire GRCC staff for your outstanding work in creating an absolutely wonderful event. From our perspective, which is of course the key, everything went off perfectly. I also wanted to mention that several guests commented on how good the food was and that the entire staff, from servers to valet, were particularly attentive. Great job to one and all!

Everyone was blown away by the event last night! The venue and food were amazing (as I knew it would be). The band, staff, parents and administration all loved the event. We set a high bar for the other school programs.

We could not envision a more perfect wedding and cannot express how grateful we are to you and your incredible staff. The evening was astonishing from beginning to end. The décor was sophisticated, the service was flawless, and the food delectable. This was an undeniably wonderful combination on one of the special nights in one’s life. The amount of compliments we received from our guests was phenomenal. Many were absolutely floored when they entered the main level. To this day, we continue to hear how our new campus stunned our old friends and new guests.

Chef James, as always, outdid himself with a spectacular array of mouthwatering appetizers, main courses, and desserts. The unique assortment of appetizers dazzled our guests. The main course plates were generous and delectable.  In particular, Chef’s advice about the desserts was spot-on and I thank him for helping us choose the appropriate amount to offer our guests.  Finally, the food at the after-party was perfect.  Chef provided Antony and Sarah with exactly what they wanted, simple yet pleasing food to wind down a long evening in a relaxing way.  I confess, my only complaint about the food is that I was too busy to sample much of it.  I heard I missed something distinctive and exceptional.

Anthony and Sarah were the stars of the night, but the real gem was Rose.  Words fail to describe the amazing job Rose did planning and managing the actual wedding ceremony and reception.  She is extremely patient, yet firm when needed.  This attribute allows her to handle nervous brides and grooms who need gentle prodding and guidance.  Rose is a stickler for details, even as she is managing multiple tasks.  Most of all, Rose is flexible and conscientious.  Most catering venues, no matter the level of elegance, provide beautiful events despite giving you limited choices.  Rose provides the same level of elegance while providing more flexibility.  She is willing to listen to almost any possibility and tries to make it happen, often with a backup plan in mind.  It is an incredible amount of talent rolled into one person.  Lest I forget to mention that she also has compiled a staff that is customer friendly and service oriented. 

On behalf of my entire family and the guests who attended the wedding, let me clearly proclaim our gratitude for providing us with a extraordinary night that we will treasure forever. Kudos to each of you and the Glen Ridge service staff.
