  • This year I booked 2 events at The Carltun. One of the things I was looking for was an outside area as I wasn't sure how the situation with Covid would be. I booked the outside Patio for my daughter's Bridal Shower Brunch in April and for her and her husband's Post Wedding Day Lunch in May. I was very pleased as to how both events turned out. For the most part I dealt with Adam, the Catering Director. He was always cordial, attentive and answered any questions or concerns I may have had, At times I also spoke with Raphaella, Banquet Sales Manager, who was also very informative, pleasant and helpful. For both events I received many compliments on the food and the venue from the guests. We lucked out with beautiful weather for both days and it was so nice sitting outdoors overlooking the grounds. It was great food, great service and atmosphere. I am grateful to them for making both days special for my daughter, her husband, family and friends!

  • We just had a our wedding there last weekend and people cannot stop talking about it. Our wedding was postponed from from April 2020 to May 2021 and Adam at the Carltun could not have been better to work with. So understanding throughout the whole process and we knew he had everything under control. He was honest to us from the start and helped us so much along the process. Given the current covid situation, they handled everything perfectly and everyone was so comfortable. The food was delicious, just as amazing as our tasting. The drinks were flowing, the service was great. They had heaters outside for cocktail hour since it was an unusually cold day for May. The covered patio and outdoor space was something that we really wanted. My husband loved that there was the room with the bar attached so it gave people that weren't dancing an option. It is honestly so beautiful inside the ballroom and on the grounds which makes pictures so easy (you don't need to go to an additional facility... Read more

  • Amazing an unforgettable experience on 04/23/21. This was the hardest year to deal with when it came to making a wedding happen. My wife and I were a week away from getting married and unfortunately the shutdown for Covid 19 occurred within New York. Dealing with The Carltun was an absolute pleasure! They were the most honest and loyal caterer I have ever dealt with. At no point did I feel like I was being misled or mistreated. Their team worked above and beyond to help my wife and I select new date after new date. After four attempts at making our wedding official we had a small ceremony and a 23 person formal dinner held at The Carltun. So that eventually we can have our bigger wedding in about a year from now. They treated us like gold! At no point did I have to look for someone to help us. Weather it was for drinks, décor, cleaning up and wrapping all of our valuables at the end. The food was exceptional! exactly as it was when we went for our tasting. Adam H Was the nicest and m...

  • I married in an intimate ceremony of 40 people. Due to the current circumstance at most 50 people were allowed. We decided to use this venue after we had to postpone our May 200 person wedding. I appreciated that in the contract they included a contingency clause for returning our money if covid prevented the date from happening. We planned the wedding in 3 weeks and they were so easy to work with. Raphaella our event coordinator and John our Maitre Dean went above and beyond to make sure the day ran smoothly. It felt the same as a large wedding just less guests and the day was perfect. The venue is gorgeous and a hidden gem in the park.

  • The Carltun is beautiful and romantic. The food is beyond outstanding. Combine that with the passion of Adam and John and you have a wedding people will talk about for years to come! It was magical and far exceeded our expectations. As Mother of the Bride, I cared about every detail. The staff treats your affair like it is their own family event. The after party was a huge hit, dancing, after dinner drinks, comfort food and smoking cigars outside was the perfect ending!!! I shopped many venues and the single best decision we made was "The Carltun"! I literally have no words... Thank YOU for your passion!

  • Our daughter’s wedding at The Carltun was 11/3/18. We are so happy we chose this venue as the night went so smoothly. The staff was incredibly attentive and professional, tremendous kudos to Adam, John, Jeannie and other members of their team. Chef Rodrigo provided a culinary experience fit for royalty. The positive feedback we received from our guests was overwhelming.

  • The Carltun is a dream come true. It is located in the heart of Eisenhower park, and you feel the elegance upon walking into the front doors. With a Greek family, we needed a venue to hold 300 people, that could handle Greek dancing. The ballroom is spacious and romantic. And the food...my best advice to any bride- a venue has good food if it is a working RESTAURANT. I've been to the restaurant many times and knew the food would live up to expectation, and it id. The food is out of this world. I am still hearing compliments from our guests! The support, professional service, and guidance that we received from the Carltun was above and beyond, we truly feel like we were treated as family. Working with Adam was a blessing, and we cannot thank him and his team enough for giving us the day of our lives. If you want an elegant wedding with outstanding food, service, and a staff that you can trust, the Carltun is for you!

  • We got married on July 20th, 2018. The Carltun was an outstanding wedding venue. The food was incredible and Chef Rodrigo was very maticulous which was what made us so confident in his work. When we went for our food tasting, the variety of foods that were brought out made it so easy for us to choose our menu options. Chef Rodrigo asked questions to get to know our food preferences and gave us a variety of options for each station for cocktail hour and each entree. He was amazing!!! When booking the venue and throughout the whole process of planning our special day, Adam H, was the best!!! He was patient, kind, and very flexible. He worked so closely with all of our vendors to make sure the night would be perfect. He was also very prompt with answering emails and phone calls. He always had a smile on his face and it was evident he loves his job. The day of was everything we have ever dreamed of and more. Between, the maitre’ds, bridal attendant, bridal assistants, waiters, and b... Read more

  • My husband and I had our June 23 wedding at the Carltun and it was the best day of our lives! From the cocktail hour, to the reception and after party, everything was top notch and perfect. We received so many compliments on the cocktail hour space, the ballroom, the unbelievable after party, and especially how delicious all of the food was!! Multiple people told us that it was the most classy and most beautiful wedding venue they have ever been to. From the start, Stefan was extremely responsive, helpful, and professional. He ensured we would have the most perfect day (which we did!) Also, our food tasting with Chef Rodrigo a few months prior to the wedding was amazing. My mom has a food allergy that she told them about a week before the tasting, and Chef Rodrigo read up on the allergy and made special dishes for her to try at the tasting! All of the food was incredible, and Chef's passion for food and his caring attitude made us feel so comfortable! In addition, we cannot give enough... Read more

  • Thank you to The Carltun & all their amazing staff. Our wedding was truly the best day of our lives. Everyone who works there goes above and beyond to ensure everything is perfect. My husband’s (the groom) button broke & Adam actually sewed it for hi, my bridal attendant, Heidi was there for me for everything I could possible need & want, the chef made the cake special for us & had food options at our table that he specifically knew we loved.. I could go on & on about how great a night it is! Also, I highly recommend having the after party upstairs at Havannahs! What a wonderful time.

  • We got married at The Carltun on June 9th and it was literally a dream wedding. Adam was there every step of the way making sure every detail was perfect- he truly went above and beyond to make sure we were more than happy with everything and made the entire planning process as stress free as possible. He took the time to understand our taste and style and made some awesome suggestions that made our wedding even better than imagined. Chef Rodrigo was also amazing and customized a delicious menu for us. His passion for food and entertaining is obvious the moment you meet him. Adam and Rodrigo are both perfectionists and wont settle for anything less, making sure you get the absolute best. My bridal attendant and waitress Jeanie and Heidi were also great- They helped me with a dress malfunction the day of my wedding and saved the day! I cannot express how truly wonderful our wedding was. Everyone keeps reaching out and telling is it was the best wedding they have ever been to. The Carltu... Read more

  • The Carltun is the place where you want to have a perfect and unforgettable wedding. A HUGE THANKS to Stefan for all the hard work leading up to it. We would send emails late at night with questions and Stefan would answer them before we would wake up. He really got our vision and was incredibly flexible with all our asks, and had the industry expertise to provide exactly the guidance we needed. Everything was seamless perfection. Our wedding was so much better than we ever could've envisioned. The outdoor ceremony was gorgeous, every single guest had nothing but positive things to say, and the afterparty (on the patio with fire pits, heat lamps, comfort foods and cigars) and the dessert train was unbelievable. The rest of the team (our maitre'ds John and Lewis, and Jeannie and the other bridal attendant) was also delightful, unbelievably professional and top-notch to work with.
