Testimonials & Reviews

To the Manager in charge of catering:

Dear Sir,

I was at my great nephew's (Vincent Vandenberg's) wedding on March 22, Saturday at Chateau La Mer and in all the weddings I've been to in my life of 75 years, this one took the cake. 

I want to praise and thank you as the best catering manager and then your waiting staff, they were wonderful. The service was exceptional. You have a great crew. They were kind, patient, through, attentive & spotlessly clean. You should be very proud of what you do and proud of your staff. 

The food was plentiful and exceptional in taste & presentation. My compliments to the "Chef of Chefs". I would recommend your services to anyone I hear of who is getting married or any occasion.

Vincent's mother said her phone is still ringing with people calling to thank her for inviting them to the best wedding they've ever been to. I hope that by word of mouth, your business will prosper & grow.

Good luck to you & your staff & thank you all for a most memorable day.

Thanks again

Dear George:

Thank You for making our daughter's wedding such a memorable success.

We received many compliments from our guests during and after the affair. Your flexibility in accommodating early arriving guests for the cocktail hour, for example, was greatly appreciated.

The ambiance of the bride and groom by boat to the cocktail deck area provided an enchanting moment to the day. Ellie and Mike will remember it always.

The service provided by Nick, the maitre d', and his staff was truly outstanding. From managing last minute seating changes to handling the requests of our guests, the service was always skillful and professional.

Thanks again for making this special day such a triumph. Please convey our appreciation to Nick and your entire staff.

Very truly yours,

James W. Argent

Dear George,

Just a note to say thanks for all of your help. The party was beautiful and my son and his bride were smiling all night. Your referrals to Eddie, the DJ, and the balloon centerpieces were both just perfect. The room looked like a fairyland meant for a prince and his princess.

Dear George,

I can't thank you enough for all that was done at our wedding. It truly was perfect. We couldn't have asked for more. Lou helped us plan everything to a T, and Nick was there during the wedding along with my bridal attended to take care of our every need. Our yacht arrival was the start of a terrific wedding. You will be highly recommended to all that we know.

Thank you again,

Dear George,

My husband and I want to thank you for doing such an exceptional job on our daughters christening. You made us feel very confident that you were going to do a great job and you did. I was relieved that I didn't have to worry about anything. Your staff was excellent. The bartender was very friendly and made a good impression on a lot of my guests because when they came up to the bar he made sure that there drinks were ready, without them even asking. My maitre d' Matt was excellent, he was on top of things the whole night. He made sure we ate and always had a drink in our hand. He even got our things together and put them in the car for us at the end of the night. I was very impressed with your service. I want you to know that Chateau La Mer will be highly recommended by us and we will definitely use you again in the future.

Thank you again for such outstanding service.


Christine and Peter Cataldo

Dear George,

Thank you so much for going "above and beyond" to make sure Fred's 65th Birthday celebration at Chateau La Mer was such a big success. Everyone raved about the service, food and ambiance. Also thanks for our night out at "The Soaprano's". We had a wonderful time!


Ann & Fred DeStefano

Dear Nick and George:

We would like to again express our heartfelt thanks and gratitude for such a wonderful evening last Saturday, July 19th at our Wedding Anniversary Party.

We are still receiving phone calls about how everyone enjoyed the evening. The service was the one thing everyone talked about the most. They raved about the food, the view, you're beautiful catering hall, the DJ, and being outside for the cocktail hour. Of course, the weather totally cooperated with us. It couldn't have been more perfect!

You couldn't do enough for us and we certainly appreciate your help in making our party a success. We will continue to highly recommend you to our family and friends.

The two biggest compliments we can give you is that we never have to look any further for a catering hall again for another party we have and we really felt like guests at our own party with nothing to worry about except having a good time. You out-did yourselves!

From the bottom of our hearts, we thank you!
