  • The staff at Soundview was beyond accommodating and friendly from the second my husband and I met them. Our wedding despite weather obstacles was absolutely beautiful! Our friends and family raved about the food and service they received there. Diane and Diego did everything in their power to guarantee our day was perfect, we owe so much to them! Thank you all for the best day possible!

  • This venue was perfect for me and my now husband. They cater to only one wedding a day which is amazing. Me and my girls got ready at the venue which is so convenient. The maitre d set up EVERYTHING for us the day of, everything was so perfect the service was amazing, they went out of there way to go above and beyond to make sure our day was perfect and on top of that the view is beyond incredible. I wouldn’t have changed one thing! Highly recommend this venue for future Mr. and Mrs.

  • I cannot recommend the Soundview enough! This is an absolutely gorgeous venue, right on the water in Bayville, NY. It consists of two floors: the first floor has a lobby, the bridal suite and adjacent restroom, and the main reception area. The reception area is absolutely beautiful—it can accommodate up to 200 guests, and they can also put up an unobtrusive screen to cut off part of the room if your wedding party is on the smaller side (they did this for me--I had 100 guests and it didn’t feel cramped or too big, it was just right). There is a really beautiful 1920’s-esque bar, and an amazing view of the ocean. The lower floor contains the bathrooms and another dining area, which is where cocktail hour is hosted. This too contains a large, beautiful bar, an outside patio where guests can go, and a baby grand piano! We hired a pianist for an hour, and guests loved it. Lastly, there’s a walkway down to the ocean. One of the best features of the Soundview is that this whole area... Read more

  • I can't say enough about Soundview Caterers!! When we came to Soundview, we had seen about 10 venues and were still searching for ''the one'. As soon as I walked in, I knew something was special about this place. Every square inch of this venue dazzled me. From the gorgeous entrance hall with the gold and ivory embellishments, to the stunning view of the LI Sound and simply breathtaking ballroom, I was blown away. Once I was taken down to the ceremony site, I knew this was the venue for us. It really took my breath away. Bringing my husband to the venue a few days later sealed the deal. Michael & Diane made us feel like royalty from the get go. I was a very nervous bride, and I would email Diane constantly, and she was always responsive and never made me feel like I was bothering her. Every single staff member was always warm and kind to us, really making us feel at home with Soundview. Michael even hand delivered our escort cards to us when I had requested them, just above and beyond!... Read more

  • We had our daughter’s wedding reception at Soundview on 9/1/19. From the ceremony space to the ballroom, the venue is beautiful, but what really makes Soundview so outstanding is its personnel. I cannot say enough about the organization, execution, and attentiveness of the Soundview staff that evening. Our Maître d’, Diego, and his assistant, Diane, were on top of everything throughout the night. Andrea, the bridal attendant, was omnipresent, but unobtrusive. That is, she was always there, but you didn’t realize she was there until she was filling a need you didn’t even know you had. Donna was amazing behind the bar, anticipating drinks from guests as they approached. Everyone at Soundview was the same way – you didn’t realize they were there until they were doing something to enhance your experience! The cocktail hour had an incredible amount of delicious food choices, followed later by perfectly cooked entrees. It was a wonderful evening, in part because of Soun... Read more

  • My husband and I were married at Soundview on July 4th 2019. From the very first moment we stepped foot into Soundview when we first got engaged, to the very last second of our wedding, Michael, Diane, Diego, Andrea and the entire Soundview staff, went above and beyond to make our day perfect. The food, the atmosphere, the organization, every little detail of our day was impeccable. The food more than surpassed our expectations. Chef Nick did an amazing job. We have had so many compliments about the cocktail hour and the multiple courses served at our reception. The food was something you would get at a fancy restaurant! Diego was our Maître D for the evening. He did all that he could to keep our guests happy and made sure that our day went smoothly. (We love you Diego!!) Andrea was my bridal attendant. She was by my side all day and night helping me with my dress and my flowers and making sure I had everything that I needed. And of course, our banquet manager Diane! She is a truly am... Read more

  • Incredible and beautiful one wedding a day venue. The staff is incredible. They took care of everything, from making sure the bar had my preferred wine, Reisling, to making sure I was able to sneak away for 10 minutes to do sunset photos with my husband. They really are there to accommodate any request! My husband is Israeli so we asked for a custom cocktail hour station, and I have heard only amazing things not only about that station, but the food in general. Also I kept mentioning my love of pretzels and almost went with that as an exit station but instead chose gelato since it's more summery. So imagine my surprise on the day of the wedding, one of the plates for just my husband and I was a plate of pretzels. They are thoughtful, they are kind, and they never made me feel like I was inundating them with questions. I would recommend this venue again and again. Thank you to Diego, Diane, Andrea and the amazing staff.

    Now, we got the Soundview Smile after reading this review! Thank you for the beautiful words. We love allowing you the freedom to make your wedding day, truly...Your Day! Glad you loved the food, service, staff and surprise pretzels. We wish you all the best and don't forget to visit us!

  • Our day was absolutely perfect and a huge part of it was thanks to Soundview Caterers! From the moment we walked in to get a tour of the venue, up to the moment we walked out and jumped into our limo at the end of our wedding night, the entire Soundview family was amazing! Everyone is so nice, responsive and caring to making your experience there one of a kind. The evening took off without flaw! The food was amazing, all was set up exactly how we wanted and EVERYONE loved it! The food was amazing! The drinks were perfection and the grounds are absolutely stunning! People are still calling us to say nothing but good things about the wedding and how much fun they had. Michael, Diane, and Diego thank you so much! The entire staff was amazing and we are forever grateful for you all. You truly made our wedding day the best we could've ever imagined!!

  • SUPERB!!! EXEMPLARY!!!! FIVE STAR SERVICE!!!! These are the praises we have heard in the days following our wedding on October 20. 2018. We had our ceremony by the water and it was stellar! Our guests then went to the cocktail hour, we've been called so many times just to let us know how Fabulous and Extraordinary the cocktail hour was. Our reception was to us beyond Elegant, but to hear from our guests how well they were treated by Michael and his staff speaks volumes. Our dinner was amazing, the drinks were handled meticulously by the bartenders. Ricky our Matre'd was within eyesight at almost every turn. "They deserve an award" was a text I received about the staff. Very attentive and courteous. We couldn't have been happier to hear these praises from our family and friends. If there was a way to elevate our experience at Soundview Caterers I don't know how that would be possible. Soundview Caterers gave our family, friends, Myself and my Husband a Night We Will Never Forget!!!!!!!... Read more

  • I wish I could give more than 5 stars! Not only are the grounds absolutely beautiful but the staff was so accommodating. From our initial meeting, to our rehersal, to the week and day of our wedding. The staff went above and beyond to make us feel like family the moment we walked in the door. The food was amazing as well! All of our guests have been raving about every detail of the wedding day. Thank you to our family at Soundview Caterers for making our special day as perfect as we imagined!

    Thank you for the 5+ star rating Steven!!! We cannot be happier your wedding day was as perfect as you imagined! You are a beautiful couple, we are so appreciative you felt like family because we feel exactly the same! Congratulations again! Love, Your Soundview Family

  • We had our wedding at Soundview and it was truly the BEST DAY EVER. My bridal attendant, Andrea, was amazing. She handed me a fresh drink as soon as my glass started getting empty and bustled my dress for me. When we went outside to take pictures on the beach, she let me sit on her jacket so my dress didn't get dirty. She was so sweet and accommodating. The food was DELICIOUS. The maitre d and bridal attendant made sure that we ate that night and we're so glad they did. Our guests were so impressed with the variety of options at cocktail hour and raved about how delicious the food was at dinner. The filet mignon was actually filet mignon and I was able to cut it with a butter knife. We had our ceremony outside by the water and it was absolutely beautiful. The venue is so clean and beautifully kept. We were a little disappointed that there was an outside vendor fee for companies not listed as preferred vendors at Soundview, but other than that, everything was wonderful. It's not your "t...

  • September 1st, 2018 was the best day ever thanks to many, especially Soundview Caterers. We didn't think it would be easy to plan a wedding from another state, but thanks to the entire staff at Soundview, it was a wonderful experience that was as stress free as possible. From the very beginning, Michael, Diane, and Ricky made us feel like part of the Soundview family. Along the planning journey there were always prompt answers to emails as well as someone readily available via phone. The week of the wedding went extremely smooth thanks to the help of Ricky. The day of was perfect. Andrea (bridal attendant) was so helpful from our arrival throughout the night. Ricky was also there every step of the way. The food was superb as always ( I recommend going to the bridal showcase to try out the cocktail hour options) and everyone raved about the venue, music, food, and the fact that the staff was so involved to make sure everything was as planned. I am also so happy we decided to choose Matt... Read more

  • Soundview was the first and only venue we visited and we made our decision to sign our contract within 24 hours. My husband and I couldn't have known, at that time, how great our decision would be, but during our wedding, we were absolutely blown away. Leading up to the special day, Diane, Ricky, Michael and their team made every step seamless and easy. Keep in mind, we were planning a Long Island wedding from Rhode Island. We weren't the easiest to work with, but they went above and beyond doing what they needed to in order to accommodate us. I cried when I saw the ballroom when I first walked in. They had every little detail perfected. Ricky made sure we got outside for the BEAUTIFUL sunset pictures, he kept our bridal party in line and on time (which wasn't easy). I forgot to put my garter on in the morning, and when I saw Ricky come over with the toss bouquet for the garter/bouquet I panicked! Well - I started to, because Ricky and my MC pivoted and came up with a new plan within s... Read more

  • Soundview was the first venue my husband and I had looked at for our wedding and the second we walked in we fell in love! We wanted to book it that day, however our parents suggested we see other places first. We looked at several other venues on / near the water (Lands End, Harbor Club at Prime) just to name a few, and nothing compared to Soundview! Most places were outdated with old carpeting, etc., not to mention the amount they wanted to charge for what they were offering. Soundview is extremely reasonable with their pricing and they have the most BEAUTIFUL venue. The entire planning process was so easy with them, they were there to answer any and all questions we had and every single person who works at Soundview treats you like family. Everyone told us that the day of the wedding something would go wrong but honestly NOTHING went wrong everything was absolutely perfect! Our friends and family cannot stop telling us how amazing the food was as well as how gorgeous the venue was. ... Read more

  • When we stepped into Soundview Caterers about a year before our wedding during venue hunting, we knew this place was special. We worked with Diane who was great. She responded in a timely manner whenever we had questions and was personable. On the day of the wedding, it was supposed to rain and we were going to move everything indoors but an hour before, we decided we wanted to do the ceremony outside instead and they made it happen quickly and seamlessly. Everything ended up just as we envisioned. Everyone raves about the food also! My bridal attendant, Lee, was attentive and even helped me sew my dress strap back on when it snapped! Thank goodness! We would recommend having your event here — the views by the water were top-notch.
