Treated like Royalty!!

Wednesday, December 12th, 2012

AMAZING!! There are honestly no words to explain the quality, attention to detail, kindness, and service that we felt on our wedding day. The entire staff at the Villa Barone Hilltop Manor , from Dominick our Maitre D, to Vinny and my bridal attendant and the servers treated myself and my husband like royalty. The food was to die for… our guests saqid it was the best they ever had and the best, most elegant wedding reception they had seen. Villa Barone hilltop Manor also set up a cultural ceremony for us that took our breath away. it was so perfect and they made sure we were happy and taken care of in every possible way. BOOK THE VILLA BARONE HILLTOP MANOR! You will not regret it!!

Church function Success!!

Wednesday, November 14th, 2012

Hello Vinny, I know I told you already but please extend my gratitude to your entire staff for a fabulous evening on Friday night. I also want to mention what a delight it is to work with Jacquline. The Seton Ball went off without a hitch. The atmosphere and food was excellent as was the staff. Our guests felt welcomed and delighted to be at Villa Barone. When I went to church yesterday, I had so many people stop me and tell me it was the best event they had been to. I agree that it was fabulous. Our guests also raved about the band and all the people on the dance floor spoke to that point. I hope that this is the beginning of a new relationship for you and the BK Party Band. I have dealt with them for years and they are a pleasure to work with as well.
May your generosity and kindness come back to you one thousand times over. I certainly look forward to doing business with you in the future. Take care and my best wishes for a happy and healthy holiday season to you and your family, Kathy

Absolutely Amazing Wedding!!!

Wednesday, November 14th, 2012

Absolutely Amazing!! People are still talking about it! The day was a beautiful! Cocktail hour was outdoors. We had a mozzarella table, 3 carving stations, a pasta station, a raw bar and so much more. WE had over 200 people and many from out of state/country so they were not familiar a “NY wedding”. It was White glove service all the way!! I had a wonderful bridal attendant, Christina. I never had to ask for a drink b/c she always had one ready for me, she carried my veil/train until the party began. She brought me my change of shoes and even fixed my hair when needed. She knew exactly what to do! I felt really spoiled!! Cocktail hour was just the beginning. We had a 4 course dinner followed by Viennese TABLES for desserts..not just the wedding cake. We had chocolate fountains, ice sculptures, specialty drinks and did I mention the FIREWORKS!! Fabulous!! Food, drinks..all of it..was to die for!! We also had an afterparty. I thought it was going to be time to wind down, relax and have more coffee. Well, there was more coffee, breakfast..and a DJ!! I was blown away. By the time I got down stairs the room looked like a club! Initially I didn’t think we really needed to have an after party but I am soo glad we did. My husband and I got to spend some real quality time with our guests. 100% professionalism and 100% satisfaction. It was memorable for us and for everyone that attended. From the moment you walk in they scoop you under their wings and you don’t have a care in the world. Not many brides can say this but I did very little worrying or stressing. I have my job for that!! I want to thank Nicky and Johnny, their family, as well as Dominick, Vinny, Christina and all of their supportive staff for making our wedding day beyond our wildest expectations. The three most important things I wanted for my wedding was great food, great music and great partying and they accomplished it all. We could not be happier. I would highly recommend this place!!

A night I will always Cherish!!

I love the Villa Barone Hilltop Manor! Our wedding was a few weeks ago and I’m still smiling from it. The staff at the Villa Barone made our wedding so special and so memorable! The quality of the food was superb! Several of my guests commented about the food, claiming it was the best they ever had. The hall was so beautiful and so clean, there wasn’t a fork out of place. The staff was friendly and courtious to all my guests. I had my own private attendant who made me feel like royalty. My husband and I hired outside bakers to decorate our cake. Our wedding was a few days before Halloween, so we chose zombie cake toppers. The Villa Barone made us a gorgeous, 5 tier cake, that was delicious! Sadly, the outside baker we hired was not so wonderful. When they arrived to the hall they placed the figures on our cake. The pieces were made of fondant and were extremely heavy. The bride topper fell off our cake, taking half the top tier with it. The Villa Barone staff immedietly took over. They called they cake designer in to come fix our cake that the oustide company had screwed up! In the end the cake was perfect! The Villa Barone made the cake look brand new! No one ever knew it was messed up! The Villa Barone staff made our wedding so perfect! I am so happy I chose to get married there. I’m currently helping my cousin plan her wedding for next year at the Villa Barone. If you are looking for a wedding hall that will provide you with a perfect day… Choose the Villa Barone Hilltop Manor! They handled all the nitty gritty details for me and in the end gave me a perfect night that I will always cherish!

Stress Free Wedding

My Husband and I had the most amazing time at our wedding on 10/13/2012 at Villa Barone Hilltop Manor. The whole staff was amazing. Espically Vinny! He never made us feel that there was a problem. If there was an issue I was not aware of it. They made us feel like family. Everyone said the food was amazing and that it was such a fun wedding. I would recommend Villa Barone to any Bride that wants a fun, stress free wedding.

What can I say but WOW! The food was superb, the service was outstanding, and the professionalism and the organization of the staff left every single one of guests raving about how awesome my wedding was! We had a few snafu’s on our end but somehow each time VBHM was there to avert the crisis! (1. my maid of honor had an allergic asthma attack from the flowers during the ceremony, but the staff @Villa Barone responded lightning quick in helping her… I didn’t even know what had happened until after! 2. My candelabra rental company did not set up the candelabra, instead they just left it all in the middle of the room, but no worries! VBHM to the rescue! They only had an Hour but every single one of my candelabra were assembled lit and ready for the reception! 3. My bustle ripped, but yet again I was spared! My bridal attendant safety pinned it all back together for me!) The venue is gorgeous….gorgeous. Our reception was in the tivoli room which has this modern geometric ceiling that really impacts your guests when they first walk in. The rooms also have beautiful granite dance floors. Unlike parquet, granite doesn’t scuff or look dirty. This was important to me bc a few of the other venues we looked at had parquet and it looked filthy and gross! We got married in front of their beautiful waterfall. Lucky for us the rain held out until just after our ceremony! Had it rained VB had already set up a beautiful room inside for the ceremony just in case!! The cake was included in my package and let me tell you I could not have been happier! It was every bit as sparkly and dramatic as I wanted! It was also delicious!!! My guests all raved about the service, the wait staff was impeccable! Friendly, polite, helpful, polished, good looking, quick, on point, and professional were all compliments I received from my guests about the waiters. My guests loved the bartenders too. While most catering halls are stingy with the alcohol or the bartenders are rude this was not the case. My husband loveddd the bartenders and so did my guests. It was a true open bar! Food was awesome and plentiful! My family owns restaurants and food was very important for us! The food was so delicious you really did not feel like you were eating at a catering hall but instead it was like being at a nice old italian restaurant. My favorite from the cocktail hour was the tortellinis, and stuffed clams oreganata! Yummmm! I made it a point to have at least a bite of everything that was served to us during the reception and it was all phenomenal too! The best decision I ever made was deciding to splurge and get the Viennesse Hour! OMG… It is more amazing than you know… I was crying when they came out with all the different dessert stations, ice cream cart, cordial station….wow was just epic. They had every dessert you could ever imagine! There was pyro technics and ice sculptures galore… It was AMAZING. If you are considering the VBHM get the Viennesse hour!!! I have sooo much gratitude and respect for everyone at the VBHM they really made my wedding day memorable and not only to me but to my guests as well! Vinny was my wedding coordinator He Is THE BEST EVER! My Maitre D’ was Dominick he was so professional and really helped keep EVERYTHING on point, and my bridal attendant Jackie rocked! If you want that epic Rock Star wedding go to the Villa Barone Hilltop Manor! I love you guys Ty much! I wish I could do it again!
