“HIGHLY RECOMMEND!” enthused Debbie B. “Everything was amazing, from the food, to the service, the organization, and the beauty of the space. When we were searching for venues, we didn’t even know about this place at first, but then a friend recommended it and we are SO GLAD they did. First of all, the space is beautiful and the dance floor is huge. The space was recently renovated and is so elegant. Second, the food is OUTSTANDING! My guests have texted me after the wedding saying they wish they could go back and have more fish and chips or ahi tuna tacos or the mushroom ravioli with pesto. Usually, when you go to a wedding, the food is fine but this food is actually delicious! Third, the service is amazing. Gayle, Bob, and Russ are amazing and really know how to throw a great party. I would highly recommend Seaview Caterers to everyone”

Barbra C. concurs. “We just had our daughter’s wedding here and our guests are still raving about everything—from the extraordinary beauty of the venue to the fantastic food *excellent flavors and unique presentation). Gayle and Bob and their entire staff were a joy to work with: accessible, detail-oriented, clearly used to nervous brides (and their parents!), so that on the day of the wedding we could enjoy each moment, knowing all particulars were in the hands of pros! PS – Dessert Parade is a MUST!”

“We are looking forward to welcoming our guests into our dining rooms,” said Robert. “We have made the appropriate changes to be COVID-19 compliant, including our recently installed Merv 13 HVAAC Filter and UV lights to make certain we are following the highest standards of health and sanitation protocols. Come join us for an unforgettable and safe dining experience.”
