  • My son got married in NOLA and I threw the guest a welcome to NOLA cocktail party at Pat O’s on the River. Jennifer Green, sales rep was absolutely amazing to work with. She went above and beyond all expectations! The staff that worked the cocktail party were nothing short of great professionalism! Every guest had a wonderful time and enjoyed the cocktails as well as the great food! I highly recommend this venue for any kind of function. You will love having Jennifer Green assisting you in your plans.

  • Ms Green was great from day one. They worked with us to have our reception . My heart was set on there venue but I didn’t meet the number of guest for Pat o on the river . Ms Green and I were able to arrange a day menu and my guest minimum lowered and we agreed pay for that many although we didn’t have that amount of guest. The reception was perfect . The staff did a superb job. Anthony was my day of event planner and he was just perfect . To be frank the whole staff was perfect . We had some mishaps with our ceremony and our dj ran late due to heavy traffics (bayou classic ) they went up and beyond to get us back on track . It all turned out perfect.

  • I cannot say enough about our experience with Pat O's on the River. Our sales contact, Jennifer has been an absolute pleasure to work with. My husband and I were a destination couple from Connecticut and were nervous selecting vendors (especially our reception venue) on photos and reviews alone. Jennifer was so responsive to every question I had (and there were a lot of them), she was also so accommodating to every request we had. When we got to New Orleans to drop off our decorations and misc. items Jennifer showed us around the space and helped us visualize how it would look the day of the wedding. We were definitely not disappointed! The space was incredible, we were in the Promenade room, which in the photos honestly looked a bit small, but seeing it in person was a whole other ball game. The views of the Mississippi River were amazing during the day and even more so at night. The night of the reception when we entered the venue, we were blown away how they transformed the ...

  • I could not have been more pleased with the food, the venue, and above all the people that worked with us. From the first contact until the end of the night, everyone treated my daughter and her fiancé/husband as if they were the most special people on the planet and their night was the most important event that had ever been planned!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Pat O's on the River was the perfect place for our wedding reception! Although I grew up in New Orleans, I don't currently live there, so it was really hard to actually be in town to see/do anything...Jennifer was AMAZING! She responded to emails quickly, called me if she needed me, answered ALL of my questions...and was just all around awesome! She made the planning process so much easier. The Grande Terrace was a beautiful location for our reception! Our guests loved looking out over the river. The bar was fabulous - having an open bar without having to worry about what drinks to offer, how much people drank, etc. was awesome. And the food...the food was incredible! The boudin balls were my favorite! But everyone loved the food! No one went hungry, not even us. It was just great. Pat O's on the River has the all-around best package - great coordinator, beautiful location, great food, awesome drinks, & great space. I don't regret having our reception here for a second. Thank you, Jenn... Read more

  • We have always loved Pat O’s in New Orleans, especially the piano bar, and were thrilled to have our wedding reception at Pat O’s on the River. The reception venue nicely incorporates elements of Pat O’s and of New Orleans (you cannot beat the view of the Mississippi River from the venue’s balcony). We cannot say enough about how easy Pat O’s was to work with, and while I feel this is rare in weddings, it is a great value considering everything that is included in their wedding packages. The service in general is outstanding. Working with Jennifer was like having a wedding planner, which was important as I lived about six hours away from New Orleans. Jennifer offered so many suggestions, was always quick to respond to emails or phone calls, and even reached out to many of my vendors to coordinate details. A couple of days before the wedding, we simply dropped off the items we wanted to use for decorations, talked with Jennifer about how we wanted it set-up, and she took... Read more

  • Pat O's on the River was a dream come true for our wedding. We planned a destination wedding and I never had to worry about a single thing. Jennifer Green helped us plan our reception. We flew down for a menu tasting and it was all exceptional. she made everything so easy and helped with important decisions. They set up our decorations better than I ever could. The best part was that they include everything! It was helpful for me that they included the centerpieces, cake, food and drinks. They knew exactly how to coordinate everyone for the sparkler send off and it went 100% perfect. They are so organized and professional. The servers and bartenders were so fun and even danced with us to keep the party going! Our day of coordinator made me feel like a princess. She brought me and my husband food and drinks because we were always talking and unable to sit down. She carried our Mardi Gras beads as we passed them out to guests to make sure we spoke with everyone. She and the whole team tr... Read more

  • I definitely recommend Pat O's On The River for your wedding. Jennifer, the primary contact there, was so great and so helpful - we truly felt like we were in a professional's hands, and she was extremely patient and responsive with all of our questions, and requests to check out the venue a couple times ahead of the wedding. She was also great at talking us through various options for the band, the second line, table set up, etc, and letting us know what she had seen work best in the space. Pat O's in general were very flexible the weekend of our wedding with when we could drop off items, or when the band could start setting up etc. The day-of, there were a few kinks - we had talked about arriving up the escalator, but ended up going up the outdoor stairs, which sounds lovely until you are unable to walk up the stairs in your wedding dress! Not a big deal in the scheme of things, but just be sure to confirm and document all of the details in case Jennifer is not the manager on duty... Read more

  • This place cancelled my wedding reception the morning of the event! They told us they had to close at 2pm because hurricane Nate was going by 100 miles to the east. Storms were not due till 1am the next day! All other venues stayed open the day before and accommodated moving the times around. I had over 35 flown in. I'm out thousands upon thousands of dollars. O'Brien's didn't accommodate at all. On top of it, they lied and stayed open till 6pm! They haven't done a single thing to even make it up to us! They ruined my wedding!. Stay far away from them!!

    responded with the following comments.

    We are very sorry and extremely apologetic that we had to cancel your event this past weekend. We understand how upsetting this must be to you. We contacted you Friday evening to notify you of our decision regarding this event and you were refunded immediately. This is an unfortunate situation and decisions had to be made regarding the scenario presented to us. On late Friday afternoon, the Hurricane that was heading directly for New Orleans was increasing in speed and intensity. A state of emergency was declared by the Governor of Louisiana, there were mandatory evacuations put in place for several surrounding areas, and our Mayor issued a mandatory curfew for Saturday at 6:00pm. The storm was projected to affect us with potential life threatening weather conditions, power outages and mass flooding around the city and outlying areas. We ultimately made a decision based on the safety of our staff and our guests. Being that this was a private event, these decisions needed to be made in advance of the situation on Friday instead of last minute on Saturday. We were one of many venues in the city to cancel events this past weekend. We have a close community of service industry professionals and we conversed with many of them regarding the correct decision. We also spoke with local law enforcement regarding the details of the curfew and a possible chance of contraflow. Due to the speed that this storm was approaching us and with all of the gathered information, it was decided that it was the correct decision to reschedule events to another date or to refund them. This was based on the cancellation policy within our event contract. The City of New Orleans was fortunate that Hurricane Nate shifted East and was severely weakened at the last minute but unfortunately due to the unknown potential impact of such storms we had to make the right decisions for everyone’s safety. Once again we are truly sorry for any inconvenience that this may have caused you.

  • Jennifer was a dream to work with! She was very quick to respond to all questions, and took care of contacting the vendors for our catering, flowers, and cake. We were planning the wedding from out of state, but thanks in large part to Jennifer and her team, the night proceeded perfectly, and all our guests seemed very happy. The food was delicious, the venue location was great (right on the river, with a nice view), and the pricing was very reasonable, especially given that an open premium bar was included in the catering package. The inside also had lots of character; we didn't have to do much decorating to make it look great. Overall, we'd wholeheartedly recommend Jennifer and Pat O's as an amazing place to hold a wedding ceremony and reception!!

  • We held our reception at the Pat O'Briens Brier Suite. It's beautiful and is perfect for a small wedding reception. Throughout the entire process of planning and getting everything together, Jennifer with Pat O's was absolutely wonderful. She answered all of my questions in a timely manner. The staff was great throughout the night and they took care of cleanup for us as well. I'm told the food was delicious. (I fell victim to the bride not getting to eat much.) I did get one of the crawdad bites and it was delicious! I should have grabbed more! I would definitely say you can't go wrong with Pat O's. I'm so glad I went with them. My stress level could have been much, much, higher. Everything was a breeze. They coordinated with my baker and DJ so that I didn't have to do it. They also let my photographer set up early with me when I was setting up the flowers. A ++
