“We would like to express our gratitude to you and your very professional staff for a job well done. The flexibility your staff exhibited accommodating our guests who arrived early was wonderful. Kelly and Jason’s Wedding was absolutely spectacular. We were fortunate enough to have weather that cooperated. The setting was gorgeous and our guests commented on the beautiful scenery overlooking The Hudson River. The cocktail hour was delicious and so well executed. The dinner was superb. Your staff was gracious, courteous and extremely professional. The bar staff was so efficient and friendly. Our guests were always served with a smile. We cannot say enough about your willingness to work with us and make suggestions which enhanced the event. During the whole process, you and your staff were so knowledgeable and helpful. Our journey with The Briarcliff Manor started in June 2015 and culminated on July 16, 2016. It was a spectacular trip. We appreciate your expertise, professionalism, and attention to every detail for our special event. We wish you all the best in the years to come and look forward to seeing you for Christmas Eve dinner.”

“Outstanding Excellence! We had my daughter’s bridal shower at The Briarcliff Manor last week and our guests are still raving about how great the venue is. A family member sent us a letter and said the following, “I just had to write to say that I am still buzzing from our great time at the shower. The beauty of the place, the service, the food was over the top”. Her comment says it all. Working with Perry, Maura, Jamie, Vincenza and Valerie was phenomenal! They made the entire planning process, from our very first meeting to the selection of food and decor, seamless and enjoyable. Their incredible attention to details reassured me, a self-proclaimed perfectionist, that my daughter’s shower would be perfect and memorable. The food served at The Briarcliff Manor is unique and beyond delicious. Jaime, your suggestion of a ‘breakfast pizza’ was a HIT! The waiters and waitresses are true professionals and were friendly and very attentive to all of our guests’ needs. Thank you all for making this an unforgettable event and making us look good!”

“We planned our wedding in just over 2 months and The Briarcliff Manor was there every step to help us accommodate our multicultural families. Perry, Vincenza and staff there are simply amazing! They took care of every detail the day of the wedding and we did not have to worry about anything. The food was absolutely AMAZING and I couldn’t have asked for a more beautiful location for our pictures!We planned our wedding in just over 2 months and The Briarcliff Manor was there every step to help us accommodate our multicultural families.

“I recently got married at The Briarcliff Manor and there isn’t one thing I would change about the experience. Everything was beautiful and more than I could have dreamed in a wedding thanks to the wonderful staff, delicious food and not to mention the breathtaking manor both inside and out. The Manor itself is absolutely gorgeous and The Bridesmaid Suite made me feel like an absolute Queen, as well as my bridesmaids. The views are breathtaking, almost out of a movie. Perry DiNapoli is such a pleasure to work with and makes sure your wedding vision is turned into a reality. The prices are extremely reasonable considering the quality of everything and the staff made planning my day easy for me. Altogether, The Briarcliff Manor is perfect, if I could give more stars I would. If you’re considering having your wedding at The Manor, stop considering and book it right now, you won’t regret it.”

“Hi Perry and Jamie,
We hope all is well. We wanted to send a quick note to thank you both for making our wedding so beautiful last month. We had an amazing time and everyone at The Briarcliff Manor was so helpful. Our guests absolutely loved the venue and we appreciate all of your hard work in making it look so beautiful. We will keep you in mind for future events. Hope to see you soon! Thank you!”

“WOW! I was referred by a friend 3 months before my wedding. I was having such a hard time finding a place to have a small (95 person) wedding. I met with Perry the owner right away and he put my mind at ease. The team here is pretty responsive to emails and are more than willing to work with a budget. I’m in the food industry, so the food was super important to me. My large Italian family left stuffed, were raving about the meal and some have even gone to the restaurant for dinner since. My picture proofs just got back and they came out gorgeous; The Hudson River View was incredible. The room was elegantly set by the in house decorating team. I’m a minimalist, so I kept it simple with just candles & some colored linens, but the samples of floral arrangements were stunning. I was worried with such a short time frame I would have to break the bank. I was so happy when I was able to have a wonderful wedding day and stay within my budget. Thank you Perry, Vincenza and the rest of the team at The Briarcliff Manor! Months later and I still have a silly grin on my face thinking about how great everything was.”

“I had my dad’s 100th birthday party there.  The room was arranged attractively, with the cake at center stage.  The food was delicious and plentiful. The service was attentive and professional.  There was always someone there to ask questions or make requests, and they made suggestions themselves to keep things running smoothly.  The venue itself is beautiful, in a country setting with a fountain out front.  Can’t praise them highly enough.”

“I had my mother’s surprise 60th birthday party here.  I was so stressed about finding a place because the place I had originally picked had double booked us.  I was a month away from the party and had no venue.  Perry was amazing from the start.  He always called me back within hours and worked around my long work hours and rotating shifts so I could come see the venue, answered all my questions, and was so flexible about all aspects of the party.  He worked with me personally so that he could fit my budget, menu ideas, timing, and any other concerns.  Valerie and Jaime were two of my other saviors at this place.  Any time I came to discuss details, they were there to make me feel welcome and made planning everything more fun than stressful.  The people who work here are really what sold me on this place.  Even my guests had commented on everyone’s service and how pleasant everyone was.  The waiters, bartenders, hostesses, and even Perry were out on the floor during the party to make sure everything was running smoothly.  That being said, even if everyone wasn’t as helpful and wonderful as they were, I still would have gone with this venue.
The view from the back terrace was amazing.  We had our party at 6:30 and had a beautiful view of a sunset over the Hudson.  They had little christmas lights strung up in the back and we were able to take a bunch of romantic photos of my parents with the sunset.  The parking lot was spacious enough to fit all of my 80 guests as well.  The venue itself has such a great feel to it with a soft and elegant interior.  Valerie helped my sister and me make our centerpieces the day before and all we had to do was leave them there and she took care of the rest on the day of.  She really listened to what my sister wanted for each of the tables and for the rest of the decor in the room and had everything looking spectacular by the time I showed up for the party.  The food was continuously available for my guests and Valerie/Perry kept me updated on everything throughout the party so that I didn’t have to worry and could go mingle with everyone.
Thanks to Perry and The Briarcliff Manor, I’ve been able to maintain my reputation in my family for throwing great parties.  I’ll be swinging by for a dinner at their restaurant Antipasti di Napoli soon!”

“I wanted to write you a quick note to let you know how grateful Carlos and I are to have had the best day of our lives at The Briarcliff Manor. It was truly a dream come true. All of your staff are amazing! Maura is an Angel, she made me feel so at ease and relaxed. Your wife made everything look more fabulous than anything I pinned on Pinterest. Thank you for always being such a pleasure to work with and making my dream come true.”
–Carlos and Leslie F., 5/10/16

“My Son and daughter in law just had their Wedding and reception here. From Mara to Perry to Jimmy the staff couldn’t be more attentive. They knew what you needed before you asked. The food was great and the setting perfect for a someone not wanting a “box venue”.
Thank you to all the staff for helping us make a perfect memory!”

“Speechless!  We had my daughter’s bridal shower here and it was amazing, and the guests are still raving about it. The setting and views are beautiful, the food was delicious, and service was impeccable.  We had a very nice selection of entrees and they were all a hit.  We were guided by amazing planner’s especially Valerie.  Perry was extremely accommodating and did everything to ensure to make this day so very special and memorable.  A few people were so wowed by the food and venue they will be planning parties there as well. I’m so happy we made the decision to have our event at The Briarcliff Manor.  Great place for a wedding, special occasion or corporate event.”

“My wife, Vickie and I were guests, Sunday, 2/7/2016 at the 90th Birthday party for Betty G. The Briarcliff Manor from the reviews we had read had an excellent reputation. They exceeded the expectations we had. The setting was beautiful; but perhaps more importantly the facility itself was comfortable with large rooms where we could relax and socialize without running into each other. All the staff was professional and deserve compliments. The food was expertly prepared and presented. Thanks for a great day.”
–Vickie and Ken K., 2/7/16

“I just wanted to drop you a quick email. I want to say, from the bottom of my heart, THANK YOU for everything. My husbands party was fantastic and wouldn’t have been without you and your team.
I can’t say enough about how well the food was, staffing,and to all the small details. Not only that, how much you worked with me and my budget.
Thank you again, I will definitely use your venue in the future as well as visit your restaurant.”

“The Briarcliff Manor recently reopened in the location that was formerly The Haymount House.
Perry DiNapoli has renovated the location and is now open for dinner and special events.
We recently had my daughters Bat Mitzvah there, 100 people, and they did a wonderful job with every aspect of the event.  The food and ambiance were fantastic.  Perry, Jamie and Vincenza made sure everything went just the way we wanted.”

“I wanted to thank you again for hosting our daughter’s christening! The party couldn’t have been better! We were so impressed with the food, service, flowers and beauty of your restaurant. Our family and friends are still “ranting and raving” about what an amazing party it was!
I know it’s a bit early, but I would like you to pencil us in… We are thinking we would like to have C’s 1st birthday party at The Briarcliff Manor.
Thanks so much!”

“I’m writing to applaud your teams superior efforts this past Saturday for my daughter Kelley’s wedding shower. Kelley mentioned, Kristina was particularly outstanding taking special care of her and the rest of the guests.
Everything was terrific, in fact 5 STAR. Service, food, accommodations, setting including Hudson River Views, and weather (special thanks).
We will definitely be recommending your venue to everyone we know, for their special functions, holiday events, and/or business gatherings.
Clare and I will also be back for dinner. We are looking forward to having a glass of wine on the terrace (when the foliage changes), and sit by your multiple fireplaces when the temps go down!!
Hats off to you and your staff!!”
–Chris & Clare G., 9/22/15
