  • Russo's on the Bay completely exceeded my expectations and played a huge role in the wedding of my dreams. A huge thanks to Mr. Russo, my amazing maitre'd Tracy, and the incredible staff at Russos.

  • Wow, wow, wow!!! Wow is all I can say about Russo's on the Bay. You will not get this type of service, treatment, food, and magic anywhere else! My husband and I got married here on September 19th and had the best, most magical day of our lives!!! It was a pure fairytale!!! Russo's, with the help of our other incredible vendors, brought our dreams to reality. Our maître d' (is that how you spell it?) was Joe Vacca along with his assistant, Joanne. Joe is the best!!! He was always there to answer questions, ask our opinions, take care of everything that was necessary, and even to make sure that we got to eat! The staff at Russo's truly made everything perfect. Frank Russo even walked around a couple of times throughout the night to make sure everything was running smoothly! We were in the Renaissance room with about 280 guests - the room looked like a dream! The service was top notch - each table had its own waiter and no one ever had to get up for drinks. And the food? Everyone knows ... Read more

  • Russo's on the Bay is an amazing place to have your wedding. Their staff goes way beyond above and beyond to make you happy. From the first point of contact at Bridal Showcase I attended, I was treated like a Queen. The food is to die for and there is so much of it. Almost all of my wedding guest said to me this was the best wedding that they have ever been to, Russo's is responsible for that! Thank you for making my wedding a true fairytale! I can't wait to have another event so I can have it at Russo's!

  • Greatly satisfied with Frank Russo, Joe Vacca, Carol Silva and the entire crew. The major piece of our wedding was our Venue which was remarkably beautiful; from the staff, professionalism, the attention to detail.... Etc. A recommendation in acquiring their venue is an understatement. There is NO OTHER venue out there that will make your day the best than Russo's. We will utilize them for EVERY occasion in our lives. Unfortunatly we cannot give Russo's 100 stars; because we would! What started off as a client to vendor relationship has been left off as a friend to friend relationship. This speaks grand!- The Elejalde's PS: Detailed, Organized, Prompt, Focused, Amazingly Delicious Food, Great Service....THE BEST!!!!

  • Russo's on the Bay made our dream wedding a reality. The night was flawless, thanks to the waitstaff and maitre'd (Thank you Joe!). We, and our guests, always had a drink in hand, and there was always someone close by to get anything you needed. Our guests arrived early and they were allowed to wait in a beautiful lounge area before cocktail hour began. The food was impeccable, and everything at the venue was clean and beautiful. There isn't anything negative to say about Russo's on the Bay- I wish I could relive my wedding there!

  • The Wedding of a Lifetime Me and my husband just recently had our wedding at Russo's on the Bay in the Renaissance room on Saturday October 18th, 2014. Let me start off telling you all that you WILL NOT get this sort of treatment anywhere else. From the beginning to the end, you were taken care of like you were their only bride having a wedding. The first person we dealt with was Jennifer. Meeting with her felt like meeting with an old friend. Every time we had spoken thereafter, she had remembered small details about me and my family that weren't even wedding related!! The sense of care and understanding was very evident every time. She helped guide us through picking packages, pricing, vendor selection and more. Any question we had, she met with a swift and accurate answer. On to the food. You will not be served anywhere like you are at Russo's in both quantity and quality. We had chosen the Elite Package and were offered amazing service, food, drinks and more. The c... Read more

  • I don't even know where to begin to express my gratitude to Frank Russo & the staff of Russo's on the Bay. From the first appointment to see if Russo's was a possibility for our wedding venue, up until the moment we walked out the night of our wedding, I cannot believe how happy I was that this was the hall we chose. You are truly treated like family. I say it all the time "unless you're a Russo's bride you do not understand." We've seen other halls and each venue was all business where you felt like just another customer. It seemed so routine. At Russo's you never felt like just another bride and groom. Especially every visit there you're leaving hugging everyone like family. lol.. We were both blown away for their hospitality with each and every person we met there. We left there after our first appointment and just knew. All expectations of our wedding were exceeded beyond what we could've even imagined, although I knew we were in great hands from the start. Even more so than my own... Read more

  • Russo's On The Bay is the BEST!!!!!!!!! No other venue can match the top notch service and attention to detail that Russo's provides! My husband and I got married here on 5/25/14 and our guests cannot stop raving about the food and service! Russo's does not even belong in the same category as other venues. It's seriously in a category by itself - at the TOP! No other venue can compare. Joe V is the best maitre d ever! He was such a blast to work with, so helpful, extremely knowledgeable, and he just put my mind at ease on the day of the wedding. Mr. Russo even stopped by during our reception to make sure that everything ran smoothly! He stopped by each table to greet the guests. I have never seen that at any other wedding I have been to! THANK YOU to the entire staff at Russo's On The Bay for making our wedding day so unforgettable. It truly was the best day of our lives!

  • This place is top-notch. Up to the day of the wedding they work with you and at times can be hard to reach because they are so busy. But as far handling things the day of the wedding there is nobody better. We had a day-of issue with our flowers and our Mait're D took care of everything and wouldn't allow us to feel any stress. We received so many compliments on Russo's. The food is amazing, the decor is great. Old School meets New School. Guests have 11 options for dinner entree... Enough Said

  • We had our wedding Saturday, Nov 16th, 2013 at Vetro. I was a little uneasy about the price per person when we booked with them. Mr. Russo sat with us and really went above and beyond to try to make us comfortable with the contract. The whole wedding day was just surreal. We saw Mr Russo at cocktail hour for a bit, and he congratulated us. Jason was our Maitre'D and he was phenomenal. Anything we needed, he took care of. The entire day ran so smooth because of him. He told us where to go and what to do whenever we didnt know. He even had cocktail hour set up for us in the bridal suite so we would be able to eat while our guests were being seated for ceremony. At the end of the night, he had our cards collected in a bag and asked if we wanted to pay that night or at a later day. At 1:30 in the morning, there was a Sales Manager there to help us with our payment, like it was 3:00 in the afternoon! All the guests have been raving about the food and the service. The waiters we... Read more

  • We had our wedding at Russo's on the Bay in March 2015. We were extremely pleased with every aspect of our wedding! The food is unmatched anywhere else, and the wedding package gives each guest a choice of 11 entrees, unheard of in the wedding catering industry! This was very valuable to us and our guests loved every bite. The cocktail hour choices are similarly appealing and varied, with choices of ethnic food tables, types of meats, and other selections. The planning process with the couple, including the tasting, does not really happen until towards the end, near the wedding date. This part made me a bit nervous, however, knowing that they have been doing this a long time successfully, we did trust them. Our Maitre'd was Tracey and she was the best! She dealt a few last minute snafus, such as not enough flowers delivered, and personally made sure everything looked wonderful anyway. The ceremony started a little late due to some traffic in the hallway where we were taking pictures. ... Read more
