  • My wife and I chose the Highlawn Pavilion for our wedding reception on June 9, 2012. While we had the ceremony in a traditional church, the Highlawn was an exceptional place for our cocktail hour and reception. Chris Gellings, our coordinator at the Highlawn, could not have made for an easier day. They let us drop off a significant amount of items a week ahead of time, and stored them safely for us. This provided great emotional relief to my bride, who was worried about storing all of our favors. Our guests had the most amazing time, and still can't talking about our wedding. The food was absolutely out of this world. Our cocktail hour had enough food to feed an army, and the quality was excellent. Chris was very accomodating, and worked with us so that we could add all of the special touches we wanted while still remaining within our budget. Dinner was fantastic, and was the best food we ever had at a wedding. They were very accomodating with our other vendors, allowing ... Read more

I would recommend this venue to anyone! Our guests are talking about it still!

  • My husband and I celebrated our vow renewal and 50th Anniversary at the Highlawn Pavillion. Since 50 years ago we eloped we made our 50th much like a wedding. We had a formal vow renewal fully set-up there. The Highlawn Pavillion was wonderful. The manager Chris could not have been more accomadating and a pleasure to work with. The day of our celebration the staff was wonderful and we're still getting compliments on how delicous the food was, every aspects of the food service etc, was perfect. We had a wonderful time and the the Highlawn Pavillion was perfect. We had app. 113 guests. Couldn't have been any happier.

  • My daughter was married at Highlawn on 9/4/11 (Sunday). The Ceremony (outside) and Reception were absolutely beautiful. The cocktail hour had fabulous choices and the dinners were magnificent. We had family and friends from all over the country and everyone was so impressed with the attention to excellence and the service. The banquet staff could not have been more helpful and professional. Our family felt that we made the perfect choice and my daughter and her new husband are in heaven! A special thank you to Paul who helped make the day flawless :)

  • The entire staff at Highlawn is great. Everyone was flexible and cared about giving us a good experience, from the maitre d' answering every request with a smile, to the banquet managers who were checking the weather satellites every second, actually encouraged us to have the ceremony outside, and allowed us to use confetti indoors if it came to that. We worked with Paul, who is skilled at his job and kept everything running smoothly. The food (what I had of it) was good and table service was good as well. We went a little over time and they didn't kick us out even though there was another event following afterwards (we had a daytime wedding). Highly recommended! Great service and good value.

  • The Highlawn Pavilion was perfect ceremony and reception venue for us. We had a Saturday day wedding, which gave us access to the entire restaurant. The ceremony was outside, along with cocktail hour on the patio, and our reception on the 2nd floor. They accomodated gluten free guests with a meal that suited their needs. The food was amazing and guests are still talking about it!

  • When we went to the High Lawn we had already decided we wanted to be married in the summer, they gave us an available date. We planned a wedding in 6 weeks and had soup to nuts at the most affordable price I could have ever imagined. The men that manage the High Lawn were very understanding of our time and our size concern. They helped us plan and enjoy a beautiful wedding. They were open to our ideas about rearranging some things within the room to help make our guests more comfortable. They only have 1 wedding at a time, and their outdoor garden was a perfect place for us to exchange our vows. I was very happy and felt we had a lovely party with 210guests yet it felt intimate. Its a place that has charm, and character, as well as history. The food was awesome, and my husband is a chef, so he wanted nothing other than the best. You can have dinner downstairs to experience the food for any occasion we have talked about going back every year for our anniversary dinner, because the food ... Read more

  • We looked at an embarrassing amount of venues for our reception and none really clicked with us until we found the Highlawn. From our first meeting to the day of our wedding, they were extremely easy to work with. They even called me prior to my wedding because they were going to put up holiday decorations and didn't want to clash with my flower scheme. The food was delicious and plentiful and the service was fantastic. We also had beautiful weather so the views of Manhattan and Jersey City were breathtaking.

  • Highlawn was a wonderful choice for our Saturday night, black tie wedding. We wanted a classic venue that would be sophisticated and elegant and Highlawn was a perfect match. The food was delicious and the view was incredible. Paul, our catering manager was highly responsive leading up to the wedding and our entire menu, from cocktail hour to dinner was custom. If you are looking for a unique, non-wedding factory with a classic feel, Highlawn is perfect.

  • We worked with Chris and had a wonderful wedding. We were married on a Sunday outside at the Gazebo and then had a reception on the 2nd floor. The cake came out beautiful and we were given a $100 gift certificate to eat at the restaurant after we booked the date.
