  • We hadn't thought much about Whitby Castles lack of reviews and reputation, none of our 200+ guests had ever heard of Whitby Castle. If we had the chance to do it all over again, knowing what we know now, Whitby Castle would have never, ever been the reception choice for our wedding. And after our experience, it certainly will not be a choice nor a recommendation by anyone who attended our wedding. First, I will start off saying that Linda was a pleasure to work with. She was responsive, informative and accommodating. I wish I could say the same of the Maitre D', Ralph, who was the exact opposite. Our first negative of Whitby Castle came shortly before the wedding, 3 months before, at our first food tasting. We were in awe of how bad the food was and so embarrassed that this was what we were paying for. The day of the wedding, my father-in-law, who manages a popular restaurant in Westchester County, was floored at Ralph's lack of command and presence during the cocktail ho... Read more

  • First, let me apologize to everyone who has recently provided a deposit to this PITIFUL establishment. I’m sorry for your inevitable disappointment. Whitby Castle, I hope you named that Bridal Suite after me. Before my wedding this SORRY EXCUSE FOR AN ESTABLISHMENT didn’t feel the need to lock the bridal suite because they DIDN’T HAVE A LOCK ON THE DOOR. In fact, they left the door wide open and because of their negligence, two of my bridesmaids had their envelopes (wedding gifts) and cash stolen from their purses. At no point did they tell us that the bridal suite didn’t lock, that there was no safe for us to keep our belongings in. My brothers were telling me that the staff members were telling people that there was an additional bathroom upstairs (it is connected the bridal suite).How they do not put measures in place to PREVENT this ? Especially after Ralph had TOLD my bridesmaid that a theft had occurred 6 months prior in the bridal suite. This place is just so elementary ... Read more

  • We had our daughter's wedding at the Whitby Castle last evening, and it was more than amazing. Under the skilled professional leadership of Linda Bennett ,Sales Manager and Sean McGaw, General Manager and their excellent team, this wedding from start to finish was greater than we could have possibly imagined. After being on pins and needles for nearly a year and a half with the transition to Lessing's management, we couldn't have been more delighted. The wait staff, bartenders and everyone else including one of Sean's assistants who made sure our entrance to the reception was pristine, we highly recommend this venue. The Whitby is back under Lessing's management to five star. Evelyn Llewellyn And Mike Lonski, Old Greenwich, Ct

  • We had both our ceremony and reception and Whitby Castle in September, 2015. We can't say enough positive things about our experience with Whitby. The setting is lovely with views of Long Island Sound and the venue has been recently renovated. The bridal suite is large and very comfortable - perfect for the bride and bridesmaid to get ready in a relaxed environment. We received many rave reviews from our guests about the excellent food from the tasty appetizers to the perfectly prepared entrees. The staff at Whitby is outstanding. Linda was very responsive and professional. Ralph, our Maitre d' was very attentive; constantly making sure that everything was as we wanted. The best thing about Whitby is that they take care of all the details on the wedding day and you can truly enjoy the event.

  • There are not enough great things I can say about our wedding at the Whitby Castle. From the moment we saw the venue, we knew this was where we wanted to say our "I do's". Everything, I repeat everything, was amazing while working with the Whitby Castle. From the planning, to the execution, the team did an amazing job making us feel comfortable, happy and at ease. They worked within our budget and provided us with the most amazing experience we could have ever imagined. The venue is beautiful, the food was delicious, the cost was affordable, and the team was professional and helpful from start to finish. Look no further, the Whitby Castle is the best. Thank you Linda and Ralph, working with you two was an absolute pleasure!!

  • We held our rehearsal dinner here the night before our wedding. We got a lot of food for our value and were completely satisfied. My father and brother have a food allergy and Will was super accommodating to their needs. We were apparently supposed to get an ice cream set up along with everything, but there was so much down time after dinner, we just wanted to leave since we were getting married the next day. But we really have no complaints and would definitely use them again! They were great.

  • One of the best decisions we made was having our reception at Whitby Castle. Samantha is the person who helped coordinate our wedding and is the main reason we booked with Whitby (aside from the fact that it's a gorgeous castle!). I should also note that Whtiby just had major renovations done before our wedding took place. They added stunning hardwood floors to the ballroom and hallway, moved the bridal suite upstairs (check out the pictures online because it’s unbelievable) and are adding a groom suite. The groom suite wasn’t ready when we had our wedding but we really didn’t care because everything else was so top notch. When looking for our reception venue we looked at over 20 different locations, including Castle on the Hudson, the Delamar, Inn at Longshore, and so many others. Whitby was, hands down, the best venue for us. It offered a stunning and elegant setting for our wedding, without being pretentious, and Samantha was the most helpful and organized wedding c...

  • We looked at a variety of venues throughout Westchester County and only one venue impressed us! It was the Whitby Castle of course! It only got better from the time we signed our contract. Our maitre d', Samantha was so AMAZING and extremely accommodating in every way imaginable! She answered all of our questions in a timely manor, provided us with suggestions when asked, and helped make our fairy tale wedding to perfection! She helped make our wedding so magical as our guests keep telling us that is was the best wedding ever! All of our guests raved about how delicious the food was, how beautiful the venue was, and how friendly and accommodating the staff was on the day of our wedding. We don't know what we would have done without Samantha! She went above and beyond her duties. The Whitby also remodeled inside the castle, making it absolutely stunning! If you want the most magical fairy tale wedding, then the Whitby Castle is your venue! We wish we could do it all over again :) It ... Read more

  • So glad we chose Whitby for our venue. The venue is beautiful. The ballroom didn't feel like a ballroom at all given the number of windows that let natural light in. The cocktail hour on the deck was relaxed. The staff was attentive and celebrative. Most of all - working with Whitby was easy. Andrew Richter helped us every step of the way - suggesting dishes, timing for the wedding, coordinating with other vendors, and being incredibly responsive with any question we had. The entire staff was both professional and friendly. I highly, highly recommend this venue to anyone considering a venue in Fairfield or Westchester. Your event will be classy, memorable, and fun.

  • Whitby Catering is the exclusive caterer of Morris Yacht and Beach Club where we had our reception. Their service is spectacular! Megan who was the assigned sales associate to the venue was very accommodating and easy to work with. My mother who is very picky enjoyed their food and was very happy with their service. The cocktail hour was very enjoyable and the bar was set up very nicely, the servings and portions are generous, the tables were decorated the way I wanted which is very important to me, the servers were very attentive, and they are fairly reasonably priced. They are just one of my favorite vendors!! Just excellent!!

  • HORRIBLE!! Had a wedding party there, 125 guests. After they had my $ I was shuffled around. Linda who I worked with all along to plan the event, announced the week prior she would not attend, that she had a marathon the morning after. I ended up meeting Ralph the new Maitre D 24 hours before my party. He announced us 20 minutes late, had our guests awaiting our introduction, for 20 minutes! No exaggeration! They actually took their seats again wondering where we were. 20 minutes! He DID NOT FOLLOW the timeline he asked we provide noting introductions/dinner/dances etc. But he gladly accepted the envelope of a few hundred dollars in cash, I was TOLD to have ready for him at the end of the evening though! The waiters for our wedding did not know what the 2 dinner choices were, a guest told me afterwards. How do you not know what 2 (2!!!) choices are? A guest was asked what she'd like for dinner, so she asked what her choices were, and he said "I DONT KNOW!" So embarrassing! An e... Read more

  • We had our reception at Whitby castle recently. It pains me to write this but I feel as though we should share our experience so others will know honestly what to expect. We were promised things such as- food items during the cocktail hour, bridal attendant during the reception, passed signature welcome cocktail and more, that were not present on the day of. The service and attention to detail was extremely poor. We made a big effort to be able to attend our cocktail hour and when we got there we were appalled and shocked by what we saw. The food stations were empty with no one refilling it until my husband (the groom) had to track down a server to fix the issue. Guests who were on the far side of the deck never got passed h'orderves brought to them. There was a line of guests wrapped around the deck trying to order a drink-- we could not understand why this was happening until we realized there was only 1 bartender serving our 130 guests. We brought this as well to the mai... Read more

  • We had our daughter's wedding at Whitby Castle. We cannot say enough about the entire experience. The setting, the Castle itself - they are just magical. It is the perfect venue in so many ways. Andrew Richter, the Director of Sales, is a great person to work with. His advice is terrific, he is not about high pressure, you feel so confident in him as your are planning your event - you just know it will go perfectly. And it certainly did! Cocktail hour on the deck was amazing - the quality and quantity of the hor d'houerves was amazing! The food at the reception was more like fine dining than your typical wedding reception food. The service was impeccable. Even the amazing wedding cake by Lulu's was served on a beautifully decorated plate. Great attention to detail here! The servers were also terrific! Everyone was so nice and pleasant! Can't say enough about Whitby! Do yourself a favor and go check it out!!!
