  • The Merion had great food and was a beautiful venue! Our guests can't stop talking about the amount and quality of the food at our reception.

  • We had our wedding ceremony and reception at the Merion last week and it was amazing! Stephanie Lewis was our coordinator and she did a great job the day of and the month leading up to the wedding to get us everything we wanted. There were a few hiccups the day of but nothing crazy! We also got our Wedding Cake there and Diane did an unbelievable job!! All of our guests told us that we won the "Best Food Wedding" ever! Our only wish was that we got to take some of the fabulous food home because as I'm sure you all know, you barely get to eat the day of! We would definitely recommend the Merion to other people (and already have)! Thanks for everything Merion! You sure made it a day NO ONE could forget!! Jessica and Marco

  • A little over a month ago I had the wedding of my dreams. It was the most magical day. Getting ready with my friends all morning, pictures and The Navy Yard and then Merion Caterers for an unforgettable reception. Ladies if you go to The Merion DO NOT upgrade your cake. I paid for a cake and the pastry chef made a cake that was nothing like what I asked for. Even though I provided her specific pictures!! I mean you have to be really bad if you can not replicate a cake from a picture. Now they are only willing to provide me half my money. My cake had the wrong colors, flavor and less tiers then I paid for. DO NOT PAY FOR A CAKE AT THE MERION.

  • The Merion took my breath away at first site! In love with the palazzo room! Sue Aita and all the staff took such great care of us! We can truly say WE ENJOYED OUR WEDDING!!!! The staff is right by your side for everything and kept our wedding flawless. My bustle broke during the reception and the staff were there in 2 seconds to safety pin it up! The food was incredible, beyond my expectations! If we could, we would relive our wedding over and over again at the Merion with their amazing staff!!!! Love love love it! We had an amazing time at our own wedding and was able to EAT, which many couples cannot say!

  • AWESOME! The Merion was the perfect venue for our wedding reception. It's excellent and well-informed staff members - especially Denyse and Cliff - work hard to make your event memorable and personal. From our initial meeting, to our tasting, to the event itself, the staff made us feel welcome and comfortable making our experience stress-free. Our guests raved about the space, food, and service. It its truly second to none!

  • My husband and I had an amazing experience at The Merion from the planning to the actual day! We built a great relationship with Denise (our wedding coordinator there) and Cliff manager) now we feel part of the Merion family. There were so many surprises that filled our day making it so memorable!

  • Great venue and totally worth the money. You get so much for the price and its so elegant. My guests were raving about it. Food was great!!!! Sue was incredibly helpful, responsive, and great to work with. I was totally at ease during the whole planning service and wedding because I knew I could rely on Sue. My only complaints are 1.) the maitre D Scott and the banquet manager were a little gruff. They were definitely professional and did a great job but they just seemed also a little high stress which can then stress out the bride. It wasn't a big deal but it was just in such contrast to Sue who was super chill and assured me things would be fine. 2.) there was an error in our final bill and they forgot to charge us $1000. They realized this the morning of the wedding and called me to ask me to bring the money. Again, luckily I was on such a hi so i didn't let it bother me then but in retrospect, that was a little tactless. I feel like they could have either waited to emai... Read more

  • Our daughter just had her wedding there and we still have people talking about it being the best wedding ever from the high quality apps to excellent dinner to the delicious desserts. The Merion Does NOT skimp on value and Jim made sure that everything was perfect!!! Worth every penny and comarable in price to many places that only appear to be the same quality. If you are considering this venue just book .It will far exceed your expectations!!!!

  • Our wedding day was on 6/10/12. We had our ceremony in the Palazzo room (Not worth the extra money by the way) and we had our reception in the Palace. Our ceremony was very rushed because there was another wedding right after ours so I wasn't pleased with the clean-up crew in my wedding video before we were pronounced husband and wife. Another issue was with our food at the reception. A plus was that there was plenty to eat ! However my Husband and I are affiliated with a church (Husband is Clergy) that has a specific dietary preference. Day #1 and every other meeting with Cathy Hawk in preparation for the Wedding day we thoroughly explained that we DID NOT want certain foods served, because this would be offensive to us and to the great majority of our guests who were of the same faith. On the Wedding Day to our humiliation the DO NOT serve foods were served. Some of our guests even mentioned it to us after we came back from the honeymoon. NO apologies, or refunds. I was told later th... Read more

  • I would not recommend this place to any of my families or friends. Sure there venue is spectacular and they have an amazing facility. However, they do not know how to treat their clients/guests. For the amount of money we paid this place, they completely lacked professionalism in treating me. I had the owner Vinny screaming and cursing at me at the top of his lungs. The venue agreed to something in my contract and then told me they couldn't do it, instead of offering an alternative or refunding me some money, there solution was to have Vinny call and scream and curse at me, and he threatened to cancel my wedding. When the tables turn and you ask for something, they will tell you its either A) not in the contract or B) they will ask for more money. Seems a bit hypocritical to me. Even on the day of the even, they started breaking down our room before the even was over to get ready for their next event and yet again on that day the owner gave us such a difficult time with everything.

    responded with the following comments.

    How can someone make a statement like this and leave it as from anonymous. This sounds like another venue just trying to bad talk The Merion, as my Father used to say : " With Greatness expect jealousy "

  • I was highly upset when I attended my childhood friends wedding ceremony and reception and saw how rude and disgusting the behavior of the entire staff was. After attending a beautiful wedding here before I expected the same for my close friend only to be yelled at for being 8 months pregnant and waddling as fast as I could to the ceremony after helping to set up the reception area due to their lack of staff. This was followed by a cold reception, snarky attitudes, and a missing host who left the building rather than helping the couple with their special day. Due to her lack of attendance the cake cutting, champagne toast, and garter toss were off timing and further caused the other staff to scramble to complete their tasks which another worker set blame on the couple. With my own wedding being planned I would rather nail my tongue to rail road tracks then to put one penny into this joke of an establishment with crappy service and hospital quality food.
