Fabulous place for a wedding rating_5

My husband and I had our ceremony and wedding at Anthony’s, on July 5, 2014. It was an amazing day. Kaitlyn did a amazing job coordinating everything and she and her team made sure that everything flowed seamlessly. Our guests are still raving about the atmosphere and the food. We couldn’t be more satisfied with how everything turned out and it was very affordable.

Still In Awe rating_5

I do not know where to begin! Thank you so much to the Bonura’s Wanda, and all the Staff at Anthony’s Pier 9 for making Yianni and My Wedding a dream come true. We sat with you and gave you a vision – you exceeded that expectation and vision!

First, The Cocktail Hour. We wanted a NYC feel with Italian, Irish, and Greek – The food was amazing! People are still talking about it! The little touches – The Food Carts in the middle with hot dogs, etc, the vendors “selling” items you would find on the streets of NYC, the signature mojito, the Irish Bar food at the Bar, The Italian Station with the onions and tomato cans stacked! Oh, and the lemon trees in Greece! And how could I ever forget – the ice sculptures with the words love for Italian and Greek, then the Claddagh – an Irish symbol of love! The fabric and stars gave you that night out in NYC feel. The park benches and seating in the middle of the cocktail hour helped pull it all together!

Then there was the Reception – The food was incredible! Again, people are still talking about it!

The Viennese Hour – OMG! Desserts amazing! The Hookah and Cigar Lounge outside! By far the best element, the tribute to Yianni’s Dad! The Greeks making Frappes and Greek Coffee – SO Special and another tip of the hat to honor Yianni’s dad who owned a taverna in Greece.

You made my dream wedding come true! I could not imagine having my wedding anywhere else. I have so many compliments from guests regarding the food and staff! The Staff! So amazing and professional. I have guests of the wedding that keep saying how awesome their waiters and waitresses were! Many want us to have the same wedding again this weekend!

Sincerely,
Jill M. Sullivan-Pasparakis

The Best! rating_5

I cannot put into words how amazing this venue is. My husband and I had our wedding ceremony and reception here on September 27th 2014, and almost 2 weeks later, everyone is STILL raving about this place. The food here is top notch, everyone can’t get over how delicious their meals were as well as cocktail hour. The coordinators are amazing…Marisa,Kristin,Wanda…they are amazing at what they do, and they will answer any question, weather its just one question or a million questions, they always got back to my emails within the hour(most times quicker!) The staff during the wedding were excellent, extremely friendly and understanding, and more than helpful. If you choose this vendor, you will NEVER have to worry about a single thing, especially if you are the type of bride to get flustered due to the craziness of planning. They help you every step of the way and make you feel like your special day is priority. The day of the wedding ran so smooth, from the second I walked off of the transport bus, to the second I walked back on it to go back to the hotel. They did such an amazing job setting up the outdoor ceremony and the reception hall exactly how I wanted it without me barely having to explain what I was looking for with my decorations.I was a bit nervous to make my entrance at the top of the stairway, but I was absolutely fine, and it was the most beautiful way a bride should come out at her ceremony. I felt like Juliet on that balcony. This venue is truly amazing and we can’t thank them enough for all of their help. Our wedding would not have been this beautiful if it were anywhere else. I could go on forever with writing such a wonderful review for them after all they’ve done to make our day so special! Thank You!!!

A FIVE STAR WEDDING VENUE!!!! rating_5

My husband and I just got married here on May 25th 2014 and everything was amazing. If you get the chance to work with Kaitlyn then you are in good hands. She is such an asset to that company and has a charming and warm personality. From our first meeting with her nearly two years ago to the minute before I walked down the aisle she made me feel completely at ease.

Anthony’s, from our experience shopping around, was by far the best bang for your buck. The food is overflowing all night and all of my guests were raving about how good everything was. Most of my family also commented on how attentive all the waiters were. Any time they put their drink down someone was there to re- fill it. We felt like royalty.

There are plenty of great photo locations there as well as the grounds are beautifully landscaped. We chose to take our pics across the street at a public park right on the river.

We lucked out and had a beautiful day so during the reception our guests were lucky enough to enjoy the outdoor bar and waterfalls that connected to our room. My guests loved it!!!

They even provide you with a free bridal suite at the Hilton Garden Inn and four more for your out of town guests – oh and not to mention a free shuttle there the night of your wedding.That in itself is such a plus.

It was a fabulous night at Anthony’s from the ceremony to the after party and we were SO happy we went with Anthony’s Pier 9.

The best in the Hudson Valley rating_5

We had our reception at Anthony’s Pier Nine and my wife and I could not have been happier with the choice. We are the type of people that wanted to visit as many venues as we could so that we could choose the best one for us. We had some favorites until my mother-in-law mentioned we should try and see what Anthony’s was like and we are so happy that we did. Between the amazing grounds outside and the large and beautiful rooms inside we fell in love, and at the very reasonable prices that they offer it was a clear cut choice for us. All of the employees that work there were professionals from day one and made sure that every request was met and every concern was dealt with. On our wedding day, their staff were so helpful to us and our guests, making sure that everyone had a great night and our drinks were filled the whole night (which I appreciated). Our wedding was in September of 2012, and to this day, all of our guests can not stop telling us how much fun they had and the saying we hear the most is “that was the best wedding we have ever been to” and we know that Anthony’s Pier Nine was a huge reason for that. If you want a reception hall that will make your every wish come true and not break the bank in the process, then Anthony’s Pier Nine should be at the top of everyone’s list.

We just had our wedding (ceremony and reception) at Anthony’s on 8/9/14 and it was absolutely PERFECT. Definitely the best wedding I have ever been to, and according to so many of my guests – the best they have ever been to. The food was absolutely amazing. There was sooo much and it was all great. The Viennese hour was like nothing I have ever seen before – we had an ice cream cart, an ice cream bar, a chocolate fountain, pastries, etc. The staff went above and beyond for my husband and I and all of our guests. They were so professional, and so organized. They helped me bustle my dress and my mother’s dress when we couldn’t figure it out! The ceremony space was absolutely gorgeous and fit 200+ people without difficulty. The reception space was beautiful. With the extra uplighting, it was breathtaking. I couldn’t ask for anything more. My husband and I didn’t have time to eat, but they packed our dinners up, as well as other cocktail hour food, and desserts that we were able to pick up the next day. It was such a sweet surprise and so thoughtful. Everyone should have their wedding at Anthony’s!

Can we please go back to our wedding reception? Anthony’s Pier 9 went above and beyond! We were truly on cloud 9 the whole time! We worked with Wanda prior to our wedding reception and what a class act she is. Professional and warm, she is ready to answer any question!. I never felt overwhelmed or there wasn’t anything I couldn’t ask for or revise with her. For the evening of the wedding, we had Kaitlyn as our night of coordinator. She made sure that everything ran so smoothly, courses were brought out promptly, service was excellent…Organized and detailed and the happiest, calmest person!! We loved her!!! Cecilia was an amazing maitre’d as well…very sweet and accommodating!

The food is delicious – drinks were flowing the whole night…if you want to upgrade your menu, we highly recommend the Gourmet Ice Cream Bar…It was a great addition and our guests raved about it!

We did not originally want to work with a vendor like Anthony’s because we were looking for something much smaller. However, after one meeting with Anthony’s as almost an after thought, we were sold. We chose the smaller room (the Regency). The venue was beautiful with an elegant entrance and modern cocktail room and gorgeous chandeliers in the dining room. What we really loved, however, was the large garden and patio wrapping around our cocktail and dining room. The staff was very attentive to our guests, bridal party, parents, and bride/groom. Additionally, they made us by far the best offer out of any of the other vendors we looked into. We only heard positive reviews from even the pickiest of our guests regarding the food. Perhaps the only complaint is that it was so good that they were too full to dance!! Anthony’s Pier 9 was wonderful and I would recommend them to anyone!

I literally CANNOT say enough about Anthony’s Pier 9. Every single thing about my wedding was amazing, start to finish. I personally had dealt with Mike throughout and had the pleasure of also going through Wanda towards the end of the planning. Mike was absolutely awesome at meeting out needs and I can’t ever thank him enough. I’ve worked for another restaurant that his family also owns for three years, so I know the type of product they put out there, and this venue did not disappoint! Wanda was so nice, so helpful, and everyone there was so personable and ready and willing to help you. We had met a few times from the final appointment to dropping off some more stuff for the wedding, and even after to pick up something we had left there–and every time she was so nice and we’re so thankful!! The staff that night, from the shuttle drivers to the maitre’d and head server, were impeccable. I actually had 2 separate people that night tell me it was the best service they ever had at a wedding. From start to finish we were greeted at the door, followed with our drinks on a tray while we got our pictures done, served first for each course, checked on MULTIPLE times to make sure everything was okay. The guests were absolutely raving about everything from the scenery to the cocktail hour to the entrees. This place has it all, and they do it right. Beautiful from beginning to end.

I had my wedding at Anthony’s Pier 9 on 9/7/13. The first time my wife and I walked into Pier 9 we absolutely fell in love with this place. As we were taking our tour through each area of the venue we knew this is the place where we are getting married. Planning a wedding can be very stressful but the women helping us organize our special day made it anything but that. They made us feel welcome and more importantly they made us feel like our wedding was their #1 priority!

From the moment we walked in the door on our wedding day we were treated like royalty. This was our day and they definitely made us feel like it. Not only did we get the royal treatment but my guest did as well. Everyone kept saying how this was the best service they ever received as a guest at a wedding.

Their outdoor section where our ceremony took place was set up perfect and looked beautiful. The room where our reception took place was also amazing. On top of all that, my guest couldn’t stop raving about the food. From the cocktail hour to the 3 courses served during reception, everything was delicious.

I can not say enough about Anthony’s Pier 9! Please if you think I’m lying, go check it out for yourselves. You won’t be disappointed!!! Anthony’s Pier 9 gave us the Fairy Tale wedding that every couple dreams of!!!

Can’t be beat! rating_5

I am in the process of trying to bribe several friends to get married here because it simply can’t be beat as a venue. Not only did I have an amazing time as the bride, but I can’t wait to be a guest here! Beautiful place with amazing food and staff. Not to mention they host two bridal shows a year showcasing more than enough vendors to choose from. I feel like I didn’t lift a finger and there was never a need for me to do so even if I wanted to. Six months later and people are still raving about the food. We ended up with Jamie as our planner after our original person left, and she did amazing for being thrown into such a busy business at peak wedding season. For example, we got the wrong cake delivered and she managed to have it delivered and set up for display within 45 minutes of realizing the error and made sure not a single guest saw or it even know what was happening (the cake place is over an hour away). A young woman (Sierra?) followed my husband and I around the whole night to make sure our drinks were never empty. She even showed up outside during pictures with a plate that had a little bit of everything from cocktail hour so we didn’t miss the food. I just really felt taken care of for the entire day. They are pros at this and you really won’t feel as secure anywhere else. Anthony’s is hands down one of the best – if not the best – wedding venues in the Hudson Valley.
