Unbelievably amazing! Every single detail of my wedding day went perfectly. The staff was impeccable. They thought of literally everything including walking my guests in with umbrellas when it started to rain. The food was to die for, I am still getting compliments on how awesome the appetizers and dinner tasted. We added a slider bar with milkshake shooters which were such a hit! The views were gorgeous, even with the cloudy day!!! We had a beautiful bridal suite area stocked with water, prossecco and snacks! I wish I could just re-live the whole day again because Regatta Place made everything perfect. Maggie, Suzanne and Jenny were absolutely wonderful. They made our day seamless. This place looks deceiving from the outside, once you’re in there it’s better than you could imagine. I can’t say enough about how spot on the service is at Regatta Place.

Regatta Place is in one word: exceptional. Everything was perfect. They were MORE than pleasant to work with, they were easy to work with, quick to respond, so friendly. Truthfully, I am going to miss working with them. They were genuinely interested/concerned that our day was exactly how we wanted it...did not push us into anything we didnt want, made us feel like we had known them for ages. When it came to day of, they were amazing in making sure my husband, my family, my bridal party and myself were taken care of and had everything we needed. It was organized, well coodinated and everything I could have hoped for. The venue is obviously beautiful and that right there is enough to make one want to book...but the service was top notch - not something you find at any and every venue you look at. I promise you wont be disappointed if you book with them.

My wedding day was PERFECT with the Newport Experience. Everyone was courteous, professional and bent over backwards to make the day exceptional from the initial salesperson to the catering manager to the waitstaff and bartenders- they were all wonderful. The venue was on the water, elegant and exactly what I had always imagined. The food was great. The Newport Experience staff were so flexible with everything and I would give them my highest recommendation. If you are having any doubts about booking your wedding with this company, think no more!

My guests were literally raving about the impeccable service they got from the Regatta Place staff. They have the best team of workers there. It rained BUCKETS on my big day, but everyone there did such an amazing job with keeping the guests and the floor as dry as possible, that I ALMOST didn't notice the rain! Honestly, it's such a beautiful venue. If you have always envisioned a tented wedding on the water, this is the place for you. Not to mention that the food is delicious! I'm never usually a big fan of the food at weddings (except for cocktail hour of course), but the Regatta Place definitely delivers a great plate of food. Great service, great food, great ambiance. What more can a bride ask for?

Where to begin with Regatta Place! Everyone we worked with was absolutely wonderful. At our very first venue tour and meeting with Susanne, she provided us with every detail and was able to answer any questions we had quickly and succinctly. Throughout the whole planning process, Maggie was invaluable with communicating quickly, answering our questions, and helping us to nail down the details we weren't sure about - all with a smile and a welcoming attitude. Once the day arrived, Maggie and Lauren made sure everything went off without a hitch and they were there to make sure we had everything we needed all day long - even finding us a lightbulb to step on at the end of the ceremony when we realized we forgot to bring anything! I cannot sing the praises of the Regatta Place staff enough. The venue itself is beautiful - so many of our friends told us how cool and unique it was. The food is the best wedding food I have ever had (I highly recommend the bacon wrapped scallops for cocktail hour!) and we were able to customize the bar to our liking. They were amazing with dealing with food allergies too! Every time we had an idea, even if it was a bit unconventional, Regatta Place found a way to make it work. Plus - when we decided to look at venues in Newport, we were dismayed at how expensive so many of them were, but Regatta's pricing was much more reasonable than many other venues in the area and we always felt like we were getting our money's worth and then some. I would highly recommend Regatta Place to anyone considering a Newport wedding - they go above and beyond to make sure your wedding is everything you dreamed of and more!

The only thing more amazing than the setting at Regatta Place is their staff. They truly helped us have the most incredible and perfect wedding. They made everything so easy for us, from start to finish - and we really, really appreciated how effortless they made it to plan the exact wedding we wanted. We got rave reviews from our guests on the food - and the venue itself is so beautiful and photogenic. Everyone on staff at Regatta Place is extremely professional and accommodating, and I couldn't vouch more highly for this venue!

We could not be happier with our choice of venue. Our experience with the team at Regatta Place was absolutely wonderful. From booking, to catering to day of event, we were so well taken care of. No detail was overlooked. The food was fantastic, the tent was beautiful, the scenery was top notch and the location was perfect. Our guests were really happy and so were we. We absolutely loved our wedding day. Maggie and Lauren, thank you so much for everything! You are the best!!

My wife and I truly cannot put into words how grateful we are to Regatta Place for making our wedding dreams come true. Every single person that we worked with at Regatta Place was professional, responsive and made sure to have every single detail covered. With all of the hard work and planning we put into this one day, we were worried it would not turn out the way we had hoped and planned. Well, everyone at Regatta Place made our day more amazing than we could have ever imagined! We had never felt so special and taken care of in our lives. Our guests RAVED about the food, the service, the venue itself. It was truly the best day of our lives, and it would not have been nearly as amazing if it weren't for Regatta Place and everyone we worked with. HIGHLY recommend getting married here!

I can't say enough wonderful things about Regatta Place. From the impeccable service to the delicious food to the outstanding views, we are beyond happy that we chose to have our wedding at this venue. Sara, the catering manager, was so responsive and helpful throughout the entire planning process which took a lot of stress off our shoulders. Our day of assistant Maggie ensured everything ran smoothly and that the bridal party was taken care of all night long. If something went wrong, I had absolutely no idea about it! Our guests are still raving about the space and how beautiful it looked for our Late September wedding. I would absolutely recommend Regatta Place as a venue, 110%!

AMAZING, BEST VENUE EVER, WOULD PICK THEM OVER AND OVER AGAIN! I’ve got to say my Husband and I have no issues what so ever with IDC and team. They really have it down pat and know how to plan, and execute a wedding and or event. I originally wanted to have my wedding at Oceancliff but it was a bit out of our Budget for the peak season. Elsa on their sales team was amazing, she recommended The regatta place where we ended up booking and it was amazing! Surrounded by million dollar yachts in this beautiful tent was astonishing! Elsa was a life saver because she was able to work with us while giving us a dream wedding. IDC was amazing because they had a preferred vendor list (which we booked a lot of our main vendors from), during the food tasting were we able to meet with all of their preferred vendors and see what they offered, it was like a one stop shop and helped us see what was available and the vendors our venue has worked with. We ended up booking the Aurora (their sail boat) for a ride around Newport for our friends and cousins in the afternoon and that team was amazing, everything was perfect and it was a great way to kick off the weekend! We also booked our rehearsal dinner at Oceancliff on their upper deck, it was a dream come true with a beautiful background and a gorgeous tent. Our family was blown away. Shauna was perfect to work with, she took care of everything that night and even add some extra flowers around the bar and buffet to give it a nice touch. Wonderful attention to detail. For our wedding, Sarah, Melissa and Melanie where our dream team, they were always super helpful, quick to respond on the 1,000 emails I wrote and beyond friendly. Ladies we cannot thank you enough for the wonderful service you provided us all year! Maggie and Lauren our captain and head server for the evening on our wedding night, we’re beyond this world. Our bridal party was super impressed as were we, how quick and attentive they were. Always had a smile on their
