  • My daughter (ER Nurse) and Fiance (Firefighter) were scheduled to have a September 2020 wedding. They required a sizeable deposit which they now refuse to return - they had to cancel the wedding and now wont return the deposit. Very sad that these two front-line workers who are working 12-16 hours a day fighting to keep people alive from this deadly COVID virus are having their money stolen by this organization. Buyer beware ---All smiles until there is a problem.

    Hello Peter- thank you for providing your feedback. Our team always aims for the highest level of service for all of our clients so we are very sorry to hear this. We sincerely apologize for some of the delays you have experienced throughout this process. As you can imagine, we have had numerous requests for rescheduled/cancelled weddings and we are dealing with each one individually and in order of event date. We have not, however, cancelled your wedding. We were ready to host your daughter’s wedding on the original September 2020 date with a lower guest count, and we are still holding their rescheduled date of July 2021 in hopes that we still can. We appreciate everything your daughter and fiance are doing on the front lines, and we are very sorry to hear this experience has been difficult for them. We would love to continue to see how we can host their July 2021 wedding as planned.

  • This is a beautiful venue but I would avoid it if you're planning your wedding in the next year or two. During the pandemic, they told us that they would not be offering us a back up date, as long as they could legally host a wedding. We have a lot of international and domestic guests who would not be able to attend because of travel restrictions. It is unethical to not offer flexibility to clients in the middle of a pandemic.

  • We had such a wonderful experience working with Galen at Oceancliff. She helped us with every aspect of what we were looking for. Gave us reasonable feedback, was incredibly honest and super attentive. I never felt like I was annoying her with my millions of questions. The venue and location as well as the staff are top-notch. So happy we will be having our special day here.

  • This review is for Jim Maher, Galen Cobb, and the rest of the Newport Experience/OceanCliff team who helped make our wedding absolutely perfect! We had our wedding ceremony and reception at Stone House in Little Compton, RI which is a Newport Experience property. The pricing was very fair for the high level of quality that was provided every step of the way. The food was absolutely AMAZING and every detail was perfection. We highly recommend Jim, Galen, and the entire Newport Experience/OceanCliff team for your wedding!

  • OceanCliff is the most amazing wedding venue!! I recently had my wedding ceremony and reception at OceanCliff - not enough words to describe how wonderful they are. Not only is the oceanfront setting and grand ballroom absolutely stunning, their team was a true pleasure to work with (especially Susanne and Jim!). We had originally planned to get married in May of 2020, but due to the unprecedented COVID restrictions, we made the decision to postpone our wedding. The team at OceanCliff accommodated multiple postponement dates, and were so responsive and professional through our 2+ years of planning. We were finally able to have the wedding we dreamed of last weekend, just days after the state finally removed the COVID restrictions!! It was the most beautiful day and many of our guests commented it was the best wedding they've ever been to :) THANK YOU so much OceanCliff!! Can't wait to visit on our anniversaries :)

  • My husband and I got married at Ocean Cliff on a Friday in late September and it was absolutely beautiful! All of our guests were complementing the venue and its beauty from the start of the reception until the end. Allison was our catering coordinator leading up to the wedding and she was fantastic. We asked a lot of questions and she was always very quick to respond and accommodate anything special or different we wanted to do. Erin was our banquet manager and she was as well excellent! We met with her the week of the wedding to go through everything, even the week of we had last minute changes and she took care of everything and also helped coordinate with our vendors. The day of the wedding she was there for everything, even when we needed to come to Ocean Cliff to take pictures because it became too windy at Brenton Point. The venue itself was spectacular! We had a beautiful day and were able to host our cocktail hour outside, it was incredible, people couldn't stop talking about ... Read more

  • We set sail from OceanCliff's Schooner Aurora for a sunset sail and WOW! It could not have been more incredible. The crew were so wonderful, and the sailing so incredibly smooth; the food was delicious and they were able to accommodate our guests with dietary restrictions with ease. I cannot recommend highly enough.

  • We had my son and daughter-in-laws rehearsal dinner at Ocean Cliff in Newport this past weekend and it was absolutely amazing! We had 39 people out in their tent with the incredible water/sunset in the background and it couldn't have been a more beautiful setting. I cannot say enough good things about our experience there. The quality of service, food, professionalism of the teams, and over all experience at Ocean Cliff was impeccable! Everyone there was truly amazing and I would recommend this venue to everyone & anyone looking to have an event there! It was perfect from beginning to end.

  • We held our rehearsal dinner at Safari Room at OceanCliff and had a wonderful evening! We chose the Safari Room because we wanted a restaurant in Newport that could handle a very large party and heard some wonderful things from people who had eaten at the restaurant. We worked with several people, all of whom were easy to work with and extremely helpful in creating a menu and setting a space for our rehearsal dinner. We started with cocktails and passed hors d'oeuvres on the lawn then moved inside the restaurant for a wonderful lobster and steak dinner. The event coordinator Ashley was fantastic and her team of waiters and barstaff made the evening run so smoothly. The food was fantastic! Everyone that attended had a wonderful meal. Safari Room was even able to accommodate a group of people who arrived very late because of flight troubles! I was so impressed that the evening ran so well especially since there were two other events going on at the same time and the restaurant had custo... Read more

  • We just had our wedding here on the weekend of May 19th, 2018. It was absolutely perfect. It was cold, windy and rainy but the venue was so flexible and allows for the perfect setting under any circumstances! We held the ceremony inside and they were constantly watching the weather to see if we could switch anything to outside at all times, right up until the ceremony. It did not matter at all that it rained, because the ballroom was absolutely gorgeous and our guests were able to stay warm and dry throughout the evening. The food was incredible and the staff was perfect. I can't say enough about how wonderful everything was, from start to finish. I would definitely recommend OceanCliff to anyone getting married and wanting beautiful views, a wonderful planning experience and amazing food.

  • First of all this venue is STUNNING. You cannot get better views in Newport. Second, they really make you feel special. From planning every detail, to bustling your dress, to packing up your car at the end of the night, they are super accommodating. Their menu and bar options offer a variety of price points and allow you to really customize your experience. One challenge is that the hotel management and the wedding venue are two separate teams so you need to work with two different contacts for planning that aspect. Otherwise, they really make you feel at home and make not only your wedding perfect, but your entire stay/weekend both exciting and relaxing.

  • We had the most perfect wedding at OceanCliff in September! The staff were incredibly accommodating, attentive, and executed on everything flawlessly, especially when we had to do a last minute switch to move the ceremony inside due to rain. The staff were great pre-wedding as well - answering my emails and millions of questions quickly and helping to provide insight based on previous weddings and events they've done. It was truly the most unforgettable day and OceanCliff provided the best backdrop for our photos. Our guests are still raving about the venue (this was a destination location/wedding for half of our guests). Can't recommend this venue enough!

  • This is an amazing , beautiful venue . The staff was very friendly and helpful . Our daughter was married at ocean cliff on a Thursday which is supposed to be less expensive . We found it to be overpriced and the steak on the reserve menu was horrible image our surprise when we payed $85.00 a plate and our guests couldn't even eat their meal they also charge over $3..00 a person to cut and serve the wedding cake . D. J . Amoto was too loud and played only to younger crowd . We suggest you look at other venues . Over rated and disappointing for a 3 star hotel we had a 1 star experience . Think twice about this venue, if your spending 30,000-40,000 for a wedding you should have nothing but perfection. Our experience was heartbreaking . Couples don't forget the two things that make a great reception are the food and the music ..
