What a beautiful venue, and what an incredible experience! This was a day that I grew up dreaming of my whole life. I wanted it to be perfect, but I never guessed that it actually would be! When we finally decided to get married, we both were determined right from the start to make sure that we chose some place special, even if that meant we had to pay a little extra. As it turned out, the place we decided on, Windows on the Lake, was actually not as expensive as some of the other spots we looked at. But it was just so much prettier than a lot of them. We did not want to go with a cheesy catering hall just to save money. I mean, this is the single most important day of our lives, after all! Why would anyone skimp on that? Still, we were thrilled when we found out that the place we wanted to get married would actually save us money over some of the other spots we were considering. It does not get any better than this. The wedding was perfect, and so was the entire thing leading up to it. I was so worried about planning everything, because again, I wanted it all to be just perfect, but also because my family can be quite a handful, and everyone wanted to make some kind of input on the food or the decorations or the order of the events or so on. I couldn’t believe how well Bill and Frank handled not just our requests, but dealing with our family’s requests too! We met with them a few times in person, and they were always there over the phone when we needed something between meetings. They were so efficient at what they did that we actually didn’t have to see them all that often, which surprised me! But they made it clear to me again and again that they were always available to meet with us if we needed to go over anything in person. We actually were given Frank’s cell number to get a hold of him in or outside of work! How nice is that? Who else would do something like that, and make themselves available to a panicky bride-to-be day and night? I tried not to call him too much and annoy him, but I’m sure I did. If so, he didn’t let on that he was irritated at all, he just patiently returned my calls and answered my questions, even when I called him at stupid times! Our maitre’d was Frankie, and our bridal attendant was Stefanie. Both of them were just bursting with energy and so enthusiastic about working with us! They took all our worries away on our wedding day. They took over most of the events, but I could barely tell what they were doing most of the time. They made it look so effortless, like everyone and everything was in the right place at the right time just naturally, without direction, but I know they must have been doing a ton to keep the event moving on schedule! They always managed to seem so relaxed, and I mean that in the best of ways. They didn’t seem nervous; it wasn’t that they didn’t seem concerned. They always made it very clear that everything going on was of the deepest importance to them! But they never fretted, which kept me from fretting. Their confidence made me feel like everything was under control, and that was such a great feeling. Thanks to their amazing timing skills, we even had time to enjoy the incredible dinner. Which, by the way, is way better than I had been picturing. Thankfully I found this out during the tasting. Otherwise I probably would have done what I always do at other peoples’ weddings, and loaded up during the cocktail hour. It was really hard not to though, because that was some really good stuff! Stefanie and Frankie also were great about getting us to circulate. We actually got a chance to talk to everyone in our party, which was really nice, and we somehow managed to get through the day without feeling like we were rushed. It was over way too fast though. Even though we had the venue for hours, it felt like we were walking in one minute and out the next. It was all just so delightful and magical, and then it was over! I wish there were a way for me to relive the amazing day. All I have though are the photographs, which thankfully came out just beautifully, and are as perfect as our wedding was. So thank you again to Stefanie and Frankie for making everything go so smoothly on our wedding day, and to Bill and Frank for everything you did leading up to the day. The four of you and all the rest of the wonderful staff at Windows on the Lake were terrific, and you made our special day the perfect experience that we dreamed it would be. All of you are just incredible, and your venue is the best!

I've been meaning to post my review for husband and I were very happy with our day. From the time we booked up until our wedding day it was a enjoyable. We had most our people come from brooklyn, and got so many compliments on how much fun our night was. We loved the ceremony space right on the water, it was breathtaking with real palm trees everywhere. My bridal attendant was amazing on our wedding day and the office staff was awesome!! The food was great paella was my favorite, dj had everyone was dancing all night. Could not have picked a better place!

I attended the brunch with santa last weekend with my wife and inlaws from out of town. We were told to come hungry by the girl that made our reservation over the phone, and man was i glad i did! The food was so fresh and the ham from the carving station was perfect! What sets this place aside from other catering halls brunches is that they really do make everything on site from the bread to desert and even their pasta! I was stuffed and my inlaws were impressed so i will definitely be coming back here very soon!

First off This venue is absolutely gorgeous! Everything I wanted the staff made happen, They even had fireworks for our grand entrance! The staff handled every aspect of my wedding, which relieved all the stress and probably the reason i didn't turn into a bridezilla lol! The filet mignon was so amazing we had to come back for more the next day at their sunday brunch and i am looking forward to coming back in the holidays! Thank you Windows on the Lake!

I love this place the food is awesome and the ambiance is just breath taking. They have many different functions you can attend. Meet some great new friends or just socialize. Mingle, networking is a great thing. You never know who you might meet. As they say got to be in the right place. Well back to windows, Sunday Brunch is off the meat rack. Spectacular display of food and the scenery is to die for. Caribbean Night is on Wednesday. Complimentary drink and food for 1 low price is a great thing. Can't find that anywhere else. Well not that I know of. This is a must checker. You will love it as much as i do.

So much more than I expected! Too be honest. Windows on the Lake was our third choice of a venue but we picked it because it was in our budget. I am SO GLAD that we did!! Since we booked the wedding two years ago, they installed a larger, brand new dance floor, installed beautiful chandeliers, upgraded the bride & groom chairs, and installed new carpet. The food was out of this world. I've been married for over a month and people are still talking about how delicious everything was. Frank, Danielle, Frankie, and Brittany are rock stars! Frank became like an Uncle, Danielle was always acting as my voice of reason, Frankie (maitre'd) kept the day-of in order, and Brittany (bridal attendant) was just the right amount of helpful! My day turned out to be so much more than I ever could have asked for. If you have any doubt about Windows on the Lake, go to a Bridal Show there... you'll be signing on the dotted line before you leave!! Thanks for everything Windows on the Lake.
