  • If you want to be treated like royalty on your wedding day, use this venue. Our team was professional, helpful, and went above and beyond to make sure we were happy. The guests cannot stop talking about the amazing Cocktail & Viennese hour. Everyone was blown away. Guests also loved how many options are given for their main course. Older guests were happy they didn't even need to go to the bar because by the time they were done with one drink their waitress was already getting them a refill. Everything is updated and clean. The cakes were made on site and not only beautiful, but delicious. Our guests are also still talking about our grand entrance, they couldn't believe how "grand" it truly was. Russo's also worked very well with all of my vendors. Mr. Russo himself kept checking up on us and making sure we were happy. We knew we were in good hands. Guests were also impressed with the process in which they wrap up the food ( many people were full from cocktail hour and wanted to... Read more

  • Simply the absolute BEST! We got married (both ceremony and reception) at Russo’s on the Bay on 8/31/18 and they more than exceeded our expectations. They made the planning process easy and comfortable. Sophia helped us every step of the way and was just fabulous! In the last few weeks leading up to the wedding, Joe Vacca, our matire’d, answered every question and concern immediately, he put me at complete ease. He then ran our wedding like a well oiled machine! Joe is really the best in the business! My bridal attendant Hope was great! If I needed or wanted something she was back to me in a flash with it! Bravo to the chefs! The food was outstanding! The food presentation was also very impressive! OMG the bakery - cookies, pastries and CAKE that was out of this world! The entire staff is professional and very accommodating but not in a stiff unattached way, they are friendly, everyone was smiling and happy help in anyway they could. The service was seriously fantastic! Even Mr. Ru... Read more

  • Words cannot describe the amazing experience we had at Russo's on the Bay for our daughter's wedding last week. To say that Russo's exceeded all expectations would be the large understatement of the year! Russo's staff was amazing from Mr. Russo to Carol Silva to our Maitre'D Joann the Bridal Attendant Hope were all beyond attentive. They were very attentive to us from the moment we pulled up in the Limo until we left at the end of the night on our shuttle bus. Our Maitre'D Joann and Bridal Attendant Hope made sure we were comfortable and had everything we needed the entire evening. Joann, our Maitre'D made sure everything ran smooth from start to finish. The Ballroom and Gardens are beautiful. The food was spectacular!! The staff was attentive and professional... They didn't miss a beat! Everything was exactly how we planned!! From the beginning to the very end! We truly appreciate all the work the staff put into making our daughters wedding day a magical day!! Thank you the... Read more

  • My Husband and I got married at Russo's on 09.01.17. From the initial meeting and through out the entire wedding planning process Mr. Russo, Priscilla, Audrey, Joanne, Christine and all of his amazing staff enough for providing nothing short of amazing service! We are beyond happy more so overjoyed with our wedding day! We had beautiful outdoor interfaith ceremony, followed by a cocktail hour and reception that was absolutely divine. My husband and I are big "foodies" and we found it challenging to the PERFECT venue that offered delicious food and quality service in combination with a consistently great reputation. Believe it or not My husband and I actually visited over 20 venues throughout NY but once we came to Russo's we knew instantly that we found the place of our DREAMS! Within the past year, Russo's has renovated/ the Tivoli Room, Promenade (Where Cocktail Hour is held) and even more recently offered outdoor ceremonies in their garden. What more could one ask for? We wish we c... Read more

  • Russo's on The Bay is undeniably the BEST place we could have chosen for our wedding. We met with Audrey to book our wedding day and also got to meet Mr. Russo, who is so genuinely kind and concerned with the satisfaction of everyone who walks through those doors. Our maitre'd, Joe, felt like a family member from the moment we met and was so eager to help us with anything and everything we needed or asked for. The food and service CANNOT be beat. They are the BEST at what they do. They leave no stone left un turned. We were treated so well from start to finish. They give each couple a beautiful tasting dinner to decide on appetizers, pasta and cake. It was very intimate and romantic, exactly what a couple planning a wedding needs. The bride and groom and their families are the staffs' top priority. Every single guest of ours was blown away by the food. Even sweeter, Mr. Russo makes sure to personally check on you during your event. There is nothing like a family owned busine... Read more

  • *Our wedding has not happened yet, will update after* We haven't had our wedding yet, but the service and treatment we've received from Russo's On The Bay has been so phenomenal it felt necessary to review them. We got engaged in April of 2014, and Russo's on the Bay was the very first reception venue we visited, upon recommendation of friends & family who had attended work functions at the location. We were instantly in love. Every employee we encountered was kind, and helpful, they offered us refreshments while we waiting to meet with our consultant. Once in with Audrey, we instantly knew Russo's was the place for us. She was so patient and helpful, answering all of the questions I had and willingly entertaining all of my "what ifs" she took us on a tour of the rooms, which was AMAZING and walked us through how weddings at Russo's flow. Frank Russo (owner) happened to be there and stopped in to say hello as well. We knew we wanted to book, but Audrey suggested we visit a few other... Read more

  • We were MORE than satisfied with the elegant and beautiful event that Russo's put together for our wedding day at Vetro. Our guests raved about the food, the service was excellent and the way the room was put together for both the ceremony and the reception was absolutely breathtaking. We will continue to recommend Russo's, and hope to use your services for future celebratory events!

  • I don't even know the words to express how amazing this place is. Russos on the Bay truly gave us the wedding of our dreams. The service was outstanding and our guests are still raving about it! Our Maitre-d Joe Vacca and his team were unbelievable!! They are all Pros! They treat you like family and genuinely care. Mr. Russo himself was even there to make sure everything was perfect (AND IT WAS) I will be recommending this place for years to come. They made us feel like we had the most important wedding they have ever thrown. My only wish is that i could relive the night over again. I hope someone I know plans a wedding there soon so that i can return as a guest. WE LOVE YOU RUSSOS ON THE BAY! - FRANK & ALY GEOGHEGAN 2/5/2016

  • We got married there Dec 6th and it was absolutely perfect start to finish. Joe Vacca, our maitre d is one in a million. The food, the service, the hospitality all around you can't go wrong with this place. We saw the owner Mr. Russo many times during the whole booking and planning process and even the day of our event. It's so nice to see an owner present and so hands on and I do belive that's why Russos is so successful. We had over 200 people and everyone was ranting and raving about how great everything was. Look no further, you won't regret it!

  • I wish I could truly write a review that would do justice to the service that Russo's on the Bay provided for me and my husband for our wedding but it would be near impossible. This place is the absolute best place to have an event! The amount of professionalism, attentiveness, and care that they provide is truly unbeatable. From the moment we had our first consultation with Russo's we felt as though we were family. Every single person who helped us plan our big day was so helpful and so amazing! Our maitre d Joe Vacca was absolutely amazing! He was so nice and helpful and really helped to calm me down a few weeks before the wedding! He made sure we had everything we wanted and even helped with a small crisis the day of the wedding! I could not have asked for a better guy than Joe, he really is the best! My guest had an amazing time, and it really was the best day of my life. You will never go wrong with Russo's between the amazing food (which is never ending) and the amazing se... Read more
