To say that Il Tulipano exceeded expectations would still be selling it short -- it was an absolutely amazing experience to have had my wedding reception at this fabulous establishment. Il Tulipano was our very first venue visit after my now-husband and I got engaged, and although we left that day without booking, we were running back no less than two weeks later to book their next available 2014 date, because after visiting a few other venues, it was clear that Il Tulipano was our number one choice. Jacques, our coordinator, was a dream to work with. He was direct and concise, completely informative and answered any and all questions I threw at him, and super flexible, accommodating and far from pushy. On the day of the wedding, we, along with our guests, were completely blown away by their extensive cocktail hour and excellent service, which carried on through dinner and the rest of the night. We still have guests telling us how they were so impressed by the top-quality service they received from the staff. From small details like how glasses were always filled and how plates were covered so as to keep food warm while the guests were up dancing or at the photo booth, to the delicious food and beautiful venue itself, people are still telling us what an amazing time they had at our wedding. In addition, my wedding attendant and maitre d' were excellent and attentive to my husband and me, and made sure we were able to eat. Our friends especially enjoyed the extensive bar and friendly bartenders. From start to finish, Il Tulipano truly made our wedding a memorable night and an unforgettable experience.
My daughter's recent wedding at Il Tulipano was fantastic! The food was incredibly tasty-everything was excellent. The staff is extremely efficient and so attentive. We had many guests from across the country and so many remarked that they had never been to a wedding like this. We were able to take full advantage of the piazza as the weather was a perfect June day. Everyone is so professional yet warm and caring to make the day Perfect for the bride.
EVERYONE SHOULD GET MARRIED AT IL TULIPANO! We fell in love with the venue from the first time we visited it. The ballroom is elegant and beautiful without being gaudy (like many of the newer venues in NJ). Our guests could not stop talking about the food. We are still receiving compliments weeks after the wedding. It rained on and off on our wedding day and it did not phase us for a second. We had originally planned to have our cocktail hour inside and outside. With the rain, we had it inside only. There was PLENTY of room for our 180 guests to walk around and find seats to eat. The food was constantly being replenished and the displays were stunning. We were waited on hand and foot and the night was a dream come true. We worked with Greg, Jr who was always patient answering any questions we had. We hope we one day get invited back to il Tulipano as guests to a wedding so we can enjoy it all over again!
I recently got married and had my reception at il Tulipano. I have no words that can describe how wonderful this venue is and all of the people that work there. Everything was perfect. Perfect! From the day we met Jacque my husband and I knew that this was the where we wanted our wedding. They really get to know us as a couple and made sure everything was exactly the way we wanted it. All of the staff the day of the event were so attentive without being in the way, everyone complimented us on how wonderful everything and everyone was. Our guests are still talking about the food - there was so much and everyone said this was the one wedding where they cleaned their plates! The Viennese hour was amazing too, people are still talking about that as well. We got such beautiful pictures inside and outside. The people were so easy to work with and really made us feel like royalty. I'm sad it's over! Thank you Jacque and everyone at il Tulipano for giving us the wedding of our dreams :)
From the moment I entered il Tulipano, I knew it was the venue for my dream wedding. Donald greeted me with the biggest smile and made me feel like family right from the start during our first meeting. I didn't take my fiancé and I long to decide that this was the place to start our life together. After booking our event, we absolutely loved being invited a full cocktail and Venetian hour tasting. Donald was always available to assist me whether it was by meeting face to face, by email, and on the phone. Carol was our Mart'd and she was amazing that day and night. Veronica was my bridal attendant and I was so impressed by her attentiveness to my needs as a bride. She knew what I needed before I even realized I needed it! It has been almost three weeks since our wedding and our families and friends are still raving about the food and service. My fiancé and I are still showing the "newlywed glow" and are constantly reminiscing that night. We highly recommend il Tulipano for any special event!
I had my reception at Il Tulipano in April 2014 and it exceeded my expectations x 1000. My husband and I, along with 120 of our family and friends, enjoyed every second of our reception. Everything was beautiful and absolutely perfect. I was treated like a princess and the staff was available for all my needs. The food was AMAZING. Not a single guest had anything bad to say about the food or venue in general. I was planning a NJ wedding from Virginia and Il Tulipano helped with the added stress and anxiety by paying attention to details and helping me feel at ease. I would recommend Il Tulipano to anyone for any function.
The service at Il Tulipano is OUTSTANDING, it has been three weeks since our wedding and my friends are still talking about the food and service! During the wedding, my husband and I were treated like royalty by the staff. Thank you so much for the amazing service, Il Tulipano was the best choice for our big day!
Words cannot express how on the money this place was. This was my first ( and only ) wedding and there sure are alot of things that come up. The bridal attendant and maitre'd were out of this world. I could not even lose them if I tried. They tailed me to make sure I always had a drink in my hand, or even before I would ask them a question they knew what I was going to say and had it taken care of.
Now for the food! We did the open buffet, which was spread out all over the room and did not back up at all and no one waited in a line! this was their idea and so many people had said how this was the only wedding they went to where they did not wait in line.
The vietenesse hour was just incredible. I saw people with smiles on their faces ear to ear walking out of that room with popcorn, gellato's, and cotton candy. It was truly the best day of my life and I owe alot of it to the staff @ IL Tulipano.
When people tell me it was the best food they have had ever at a wedding, and some even said in their life it just makes me feel good. We are so pleased with our choice of them!
Amazing place, amazing staff, amazing food! I can't wait to go back as a guest!!
We couldn't have asked for a better wedding. The planning process was made simple by the fact that the staff was very responsive whenever we had questions and accommodated all of our requests. We had a small hiccup at one of our final planning meetings, but from then on, the owner Greg Jr. handled our wedding personally and promised everything would be perfect. He was been there on the night of our event and Tulipano definitely delivered!
The food was incredible, and abundant! We did a tasting at Rare, their partner restaurant, and everything we tasted was excellent. Of course we figured they'd make it perfect for us at the tasting, but maybe the quality wouldn't be as good when cooking for 150 people, but no! All of our guests couldn't stop talking about the food. Several of our guests lamented that they wish they had more time and more room to try everything just during the cocktail hour. We opted for the Viennese hour as well and were so glad we did. It was a great surprise for our guests to have an hour of ice cream, cakes, cookies, cotton candy, chocolate fountain, and other sweets to finish off the night. Even the wedding cake was excellent, not that anyone had room left! They incorporated all of our design requests and made us a beautiful cake.
On to the decor- the room for the ceremony (ours was indoor) was beautiful, surrounded by arched windows. The cocktail hour area was very large, so no one felt cramped or find it hard to get seating. The reception room was gorgeous and uplit in the color of our choice.
Service was excellent. None of our guests went wanting. Our older guests commented that you just don't see that kind of service anymore, and were very impressed that every time they left the table, they returned to find their napkins neatly folded. My bridal attendant was attentive and very helpful, I never had to carry anything or try to pull out my own chair!
Excellent is all I can say. Tulipano helped us pull off our dream wedding!
Great staff and overall service. They made our day everything we were looking for and more. We fell in love and chose Il Tulipano after seeing it for the first time. Wouldn't of changed a thing!
Il Tulipano made our wedding dream become a reality. Gregorio was wonderful. He answered all of our questions and gave us everything we wanted and more. He was very focused on the bride. He also takes the time to go over all of the details. The grounds at il Tulipano are absolutely gorgeous and quite picturesque. The inside is just as beautiful! The food is out of this world! They provide an elaborate cocktail hour and everything is delicious, including their dinner. Their Viennese hour has so many options for dessert. They have an on-sight baker who was able to duplicate a picture of a cake that I found and it came out great. In addition to the amazing food, the staff there is so friendly and the bridal attendant Thea is so sweet and got us everything we needed. Our guests are still talking about the service and the food at our wedding! My husband and I can not express enough about our experience there and wish we could do it all over again. It was the best day of our lives and everything about Il Tulipano was remarkable. We hope we get to experience another wedding there. Thank you Il Tulipano!! ~Anjelle and Joseph Rullis~
The venue was beautiful and everything came out perfect! We were originally concerned about the food since you don't have tasting before the wedding, and my in-laws are Portuguese so the amount of food is definitely important. The food is exceptional and even the Portuguese are still talking about it today! the maitre D and bridal assistant were both great and catered to my every need!
Our dream came true the day we walked into il Tulipano! Every step of the way was a breeze with all the help we had from Donald and Gregorio ! They are top notch ! The service the appearance. The food Ohh the food! How amazing ! I couldn't ever imagine spending our special day anywhere else ! My husband and I will never forget how beautiful our day was spending it at il Tulipano ! My bridal attendant , Sunday , was on point all night ! A pleasure and a beauty the venue!
I LOVE IT HERE! I went into this wedding blind, Never been here ever and was just going on one persons recommendation. Alyssa worked with me during everything and was so great. The day of the wedding was perfect. The staff was great and made sure I had no worries. Each one of my 200 guest will never forget the wedding at this place. They are still talking about the cocktail hour. I couldnt have asked for a better venue
I still cannot believe I had the wedding of my dreams!!! I'm so happy we chose il Tulipano as our venue, it was a pleasure to deal with Donald and the rest of the staff at il tulipano. Our wedding was amazing! And every single guest LOVED the food and the venue :) thank you very much for everything!! I would HIGHLY recommend this venue to anyone!
Pure amazement! Loved every minute of the reception and cocktail hour. Amazing food, great atmosphere and overall total professionalism. Greg Jr is awesome and was so accommodating up until the last minute.
We had attended a wedding at il Tulipano 2 years ago and when we got engaged they were the first place we visited and the place we booked.
I wanted a venue where we would be the only wedding and where I knew the food was awesome.
The grounds are beautiful, we took all of our pictures there. The bridal attendant was great.
Our guests are still bragging about the night. Tulipano did a great job and I highly recommend them for a wedding.
Would not change a thing - it was the perfect day ! Thank you Greg and everyone at il Tulipano!!
On September 15, 2013 my husband and I had the most amazing Wedding. I want to thank Il Tulipano for not only making our reception a dream come true, but we had our ceremony at their new renovated garden and it was the perfect location for the perfect wedding on the perfect day!! For cocktail hour we also chose the BBQ option and it was a HIT!!!!a must do!!! The food was out of this world!!! My guest could not stop talking about it!!
Alyssa was my personal contact, she was amazing!!! She is quick with Emails and will do anything to help your wishes come true.
