Our wedding at the Grand Marquis was a dream! The Dome room completely wowed our guests. Food was amazing – our guests raved about the cocktail hour, especially the seafood display, and the venetian hour, which had everything from fried oreo’s to vanilla vodka milk shake shots. The short rib and teriyaki salmon main courses were delicious, the chicken was just fair but honestly everything else was so good that it more than made up for it. Nicole helped us from beginning to end and she was an absolute sweetheart. Chris was our maître d for that night and made sure we had everything we needed and more. I would definitely have another event here and would highly recommend working with Nicole and Chris.

We had the pleasure of working with Nertila and the Grand Marquis for our wedding in October of 2016. From our initial meeting to the day of, Nertila and the staff were extremely accommodating, professional, and genuine. Nertila is an absolute sweetheart and made us feel like family. The Grand Marquis offered an excellent value compared to similar venues we looked at-- and we looked at a lot! Not only was the ballroom beyond beautiful and clean, but so were the bathrooms, hallways, entryways, etc. Something we appreciated was that the kindness and accommodations we experienced when we were initially looking did not end once we signed the contract. Even through the day of the wedding, Nertila and the rest of the staff made sure we had everything we needed, and then some. They made sure we ate our dinner and we even had a cute little buffet setup in the bridal suite that we snuck down and enjoyed to have a few private moments away from the bustle of everything else. Our guests still rave a year and a half later about how good the food was and how much fun they had. We cannot say enough good things about Nertila and the Grand Marquis, and we 100% would have our wedding there all over again.

Food amazing, service amazing, EVERYTHING AMAZNG! All of my crazy, redicious questions answered right away without any issues, and believe me I ask a lot of questions! they were so well prepared for my wedding they were reminding me things I even forgot which was awesome! Matre D was amazing! My in laws still rave about how professional he was, I think his name was Chris? On your wedding day you have no sense of time, and my photographer was leaving early so we had to do certain things before she left .. No fear Chris was on top of that! Claudia was the bridal party's favorite with her bubbly personality and she is a life saver with bustling my dress ! Yes she bustled my dress! grand Marquis went beyond of what I could ever wish for! And I am not just saying this! As a crazy bride, I couldn't have asked for a better day and better reception because the Grand Marquis was the best decision I have ever made! If they offer Viennese.. Do it! I was hesitant at first because we had cake but I swear once we opened those doors to the Viennese .. Just insane and amazing food again! I'm still getting told it was the best wedding everyone has ever been to ;)

My wedding date was in August, today we are almost in January and people are STILL raving about our wedding reception at the Grand Marquis. My husband and I visited about 8 different venues in NJ before we made our final decision. The Grand Marquis was the second venue we visited. Upon our visit we were greeted with drinks in addition to some food because they were having an event that night. We hadn't even signed a contract and they were generous enough to offer us a tasting of some of the items they prepared (so good btw!!). Nertila and Joe were so incredibly kind, attentive, and understanding of the things we wanted for our special day. I fell in love at that moment but I felt it was too soon to make our final decision so we went to look at other venues. Still, the Grand Marquis was on my mind and the only venue to extend themselves the way they did. It was clear our hearts were set on the Grand Marquis and so we set our date and the rest is history! My husband and I are both Portuguese and two things that are an absolute must are an abundance of alcohol esp wine and food!! Aside from all of the amazing food options the Grand Marquis had to offer, we also wanted a Portuguese station at cocktail hour. They were able to order a few dishes for us from Valenca Restaurant where our suckling pig was from. They also allowed us to have a Portuguese Fartura truck outside as a sweet treat for our guests. The food, the ambiance, the service were all so amazing. We were in the dome room and we had a little over 200 guests and it was comfortable and spacious enough. One thing I have to mention is also how kind and helpful the owners were. It's not very often you see the owners of an establishment as hands on as they were. Even on the night of our reception they were helping the staff to ensure everything was running smoothly. There was another wedding in the larger room and you wouldn't even guess it because it was so well organized.

Words cannot even begin to describe how perfect our wedding was. Considering we planned in for two years, I felt so at ease every step of the way. The Grand Marquis treated us like royalty each and every time we went, whether it was to pay a bill or go for the tasting. As far as the day of the wedding, oh my goodness it could not have been more perfect! Our maitre'd and bridal assistant were OUT OF THIS WORLD! I never went without anything whether it be good, drink, a tissue, or even a picture! These girls worked so hard to make sure we not only had everything we needed and wanted but that the event was going according to what we wanted. They encouraged us to take it all in as you can imagine the entire day was very exciting! Now, the food. Oh my gosh, THE FOOD! People have not stopped talking about our amazing cocktail hour , incredible salad and entree , and our Viennese hour! It was a lot of food, but anyone can make a lot of food! What sets The Grand Marquis apart is that it was a lot of AMAZING food. The cocktail hour was everything we planned on an more. The ice sculpture of my husbands favorite soccer team was perfect, the signature cocktails were awesome, and all of the food was truly amazing. Just to name a few the baby lamb chops, sushi, and duck buns were some of our favorites. The prosciutto cone salad was a great starter and the entree choices were all terrific. We were surprised to see they made a trio plate for me and my husband and we got to try them all! The vienesse hour was totally UNREAL! We greeted our guests with sparklers before they walked into a sweet wonderland with even more things than we had planned. Our guests were so excited and we had such a wonderful time from the moment we walked in to the moment we left. The manager Joe went above and beyond to make sure we were happy and even made sure the dads had their favorite burbon which wasn't ordinarily on hand. If we had to do it all over again we wouldn't change one thing!

Grand Marquis, "thank you" for helping us to have the wedding of my dreams! My girl "Allie" was amazing and everything I could have wished for in terms of assistance the day before and up until the time we left the Grand Marquis the day of the wedding. They did a superb job. Service was impeccable, staff was incredible, management was attentive and the food and appearance were simply fabulous! I want another wedding there just to experience the day again! My wedding was in July and guests who attended are still talking about it! My only complaint would be that I trusted, recommended entertainment via Grand Marquis' site. STAY AWAY!!! You will never be able to prepare them enough to assure that your entertainment goes as well as possible. Everything that I did to prepare was to no avail. Many meetings & notes took place and were provided, but still a disaster. It's not what happens, but how you fix it. That's if you want to fix it (I guess not). Only, ego, ego, ego. Find entertainment on your own. Speak to pasts clients to verify. Thank God that what Grand Marquis displayed outshined the entertainment, otherwise we would have had a disaster of a wedding. Thank you, thank you, thank you Grand Marquis!

My husband and I tied the knot at Grand Marquis on Saturday, July 2, 2016, and could not have been more pleased! We used the outdoor ceremony space and the newly renovated Dome Room. Our guests were treated to a massive amount of delicious food; with something that suited everyone's taste. We also received many compliments on our cocktail hour, choice of entrees, and our Venetian hour. They let us break a plate (my husband is Greek!) during the outdoor ceremony. At the end of the night, they allowed us to use sparklers, since it was 4th of July weekend. We would have loved to be guests at our own wedding! Thank you so much Grand Marquis!

The Grand Marquis was amazing for our wedding! Everyone that works there is fantastic, particularly Lauren and Chris! They made our wedding everything we wanted and more, and they were very reasonable priced for venues around the area. If you are big on food, and food, music, and booze makes a wedding, then go to Grand Marquis. My guests could not stop talking about our wedding after especially the dessert! There dessert menu is basically the reason we booked, I mean where else in NJ can you get fried oreos and cotton candy that is included!

We had our wedding reception here in May 2016, with 350 people attending. The staff was excellent, the food delicious, and the entire place has been recently renovated (gorgeous)! Being that both sides of our family is Greek, the most important aspects of this wedding was food, service and music (DJ Manny the Greek/JTK Express!). The cocktail hour was plentiful (the raw bar was one of the BEST that I have ever encountered at a wedding), and most of our guests said that the cocktail hour was so good that they weren't hungry for the main course (but they ate it anyway!). With 350 guests, our biggest worries was that the main course would not be as good as it was at the tasting (a common worry when having so many guests) - and the tasting sealed the deal for us. The rib-eye steak was cooked to order and most guests marveled at how perfect they were. The salmon Choron was well-seasoned and had a delicious sauce, and the chicken Athenian was incredibly tender and flavorful. The owners went above and beyond to make us feel like family, working with us every step of the way. Our on-site wedding planners, Nicole and Nertila, were organized, answered all of our questions, and were quick to respond via email or phone anytime we had a question or request in the months preceding the wedding. Nertila was also at the reception to make sure that all went well. Our Maitre D' Christopher was on point throughout the course of the reception making sure that everything was running smoothly and that we had everything that we needed or wanted. Seriously, have your wedding here, you won't regret it!

We visited at least 30 venues before deciding on the Grand Marquis. The value and what we got for the price is unbeatable. Our guests gave us so many compliments about the food. The staff was friendly and hardworking. We could not have been any happier with selecting Grand Marquis to have our wedding.

I had my wedding at the Grand Marquis about two weeks ago 4/10/16 and I am beyond satisfied with this venue, they had just remodeled the dome room prior to my event and it is absolutely stunning. All of my guest did not stop commenting of how elegant the venue was. All of the staff that assisted on my big day were so polite and extremely attentive to all of my guests, and to my husband and I as well. My wedding specialist Nicole took such good care of every little detail and what I really liked about her was that she was very responsive to every email or phone call. I never had to wait and what ever I needed she always made sure I was happy. On the big day, my husband, myself, and the bridal party chose not to join the guests in the cocktail hour so they prepared the bridal suite for us and had plenty of food and drinks there for us. My photographer filmed and took pictures of the cocktail hour and every thing looked so delicious, and it absolutely was. I was told that the food at Grand Marquis is amazing, and they certainly live up to their reputation. I wanted my wedding decor to be elegant but classic, nothing too crazy, and they provided me with their candelabras and recommended me to Sayrewood Florist who also did an amazing job. Since they recently remodeled I did not even want to decorate the room as much because it looks so beautiful. The chandeliers give the rooms such an elegant and delicate touch. Nonetheless, my wedding was exactly how I pictured it to be a huge part of that was this venue and all of their staff. I would recommend this venue to anyone it is worth every penny! .... I honestly could go on, but this review would be too lengthy. Once more, Thank you Grand Marquis!

The Grand Marquis was a phenomenal venue! It was both gorgeous and spacious! All of the staff was beyond professional and helpful. They made sure to CONSTANTLY check on us as well as our parents and bridal party. I'm already wondering what other events we can plan here! We would definitely recommend them ten times over.
