This was our first event at Leonard's for our organization which was celebrating a very important anniversary. From the very start of the planning process, Ryan Matland from Leonard's, our catering director, worked closely with us. Ryan was always easy to approach, was accommodating to answer any questions we had, and was always willing to meet with us whether that be over the phone or face to face. He was flexible and always addressed our questions and concerns with the utmost professionalism and flexibility. Two days before the event we asked if servers could serve the food during the cocktail hour and kid’s buffet instead of guests self-serving. Ryan agreed and made it happen. On event day, our maître de Jose was fantastic and accommodated all our requests including moving tables around, changing the lighting, increasing/decreasing the air conditioning, etc. Our event went extraordinarily well with a lot of complements from our guests from the spacious parking, coat check, the open bar to the food, the atmosphere, and the beautiful venue itself. Thank you Lenoard’s!
Just held my second event at Leonard’s - couldn’t be happier. What a beautiful venue, attentive staff and outstanding food. Ryan is my guru!
From the day I walked in to book my event, to the end of the evening of my event, all I can say is AMAZING!!!!! Thank you Ryan! And your staff is great! Leonard's way to go!!!
My husband and I had our 50th birthday party on April 27th 2019. We had such a memorable experience. The staff at Leonard’s we’re beyond phenomenal. Thank you Mr. Ryan Matland for giving us the party of our dreams.
I would like to thank Jay for the amazing planning and cooperation he had with our daughter's Sweet Sixteen. It was wonderful, and we had a great evening. Along with that the hall was well set and the staff was outstanding. The food was great, and we would definitely recommend this venue to friends and family in the future.
We had the joy of hosting our daughter's christening at Leonard's. The entire process was seamless and painless. Everyone talked about how amazing the food was, to how beautiful the room looked. There are plenty of locations to take beautiful pictures as well.
Jay accommendated us for my boy's birthday. He is the one stop guy. He makes lots of suggestions for my party and very thoughful and he is a think ahead man. Really recommended. Will come back here for my future parties and will continue to work with Jay. Thumbs up.
Our daughter sweet sixteen was a wonderful party thanks to Jay and all the staff at Leonard's Palazzo. Jay helped us plan everything and offered us many help tips. I can't say enough about Jay and how instrumental he was to a successful party. Thank you
My all guests at my 50th birthday party were amazed with a beautiful place inside and outside,had delicious food, could enjoy opened bar,spacious place for dance,very romantic and cozy atmosphere .We all felt very welcome. I want to thank you Daniella, for preparing and setting my party so organized .Everything went so smooth. Great job! I'm very happy.And i want say a big thank to Martino and other staff for helping to accomplish everything. Great job!!!
We recently had our work party here at Leonard's and were completely satisfied. The venue itself is beautiful inside and out. I arrived early to make sure everything was set and when I got there, I was pleasantly surprised. The room looked great and the Maitre d' (Michelle) was awesome and very sweet. Everyone at the party couldn't stop talking about how good the food and drinks were. I would definitely choose Leonard's again if I had to do another party. Thank you to our sales manager, Ryan for helping us plan our event and working with our budget.
We had our daughter’s 7th birthday at Leonards Palazzo and all was worthwhile and the experience was outstanding. Mr. JAY helped us from the beginning until the end, he was very professional and very helpful with us and he made sure all Our expectations will be close to perfect, and it was, indeed. I highly recommend JAY on your future family events. Thanks Jay, you are the best!
Everything was beautiful, the atmosphere, decor and food was delightful. Big shout out to Jay and his team for making my sister sweet16 something truly memorable.
Leonard’s polazzo was the nicest formal event. I have ever been to in my entire life. David Rosenberg really made things easy for us and take care of everything even down to the smallest things I did not even think of . 11/10 recommendation.

On Sunday Sept 23, 2018 my husband and I hosted a 40th birthday party for our son at Leonard's Palazzo in Great Neck. The best way to describe the party was magical. From the central location, lovely decor and delicious food we were more than satisfied. We chose the modified cocktail hour, dinner, cannoli cake and ice cream bar. The filet mignon was the best I ever tasted. Our guests really enjoyed the ice cream bar. We paid for the package that we wanted and there were no hidden charges. Jay and Eric were present to rectify any concerns that we may have had. I must admit we were a little anxious before the party but Jay said "Don't be nervous at all, we will take care of everything". A good time was had by all. We would definitely recommend Leonard's Palazzo to our friends and family.

We had our daughter Giuliana's Sweet Sixteen celebration at Leonard's Palazzo on October 14, 2018. We had the Best time and the food was Excellent. I wrote a huge and more detail on Google. Jay our Banquet manager made the impossible, possible. Rina was excellent with my daughter and helped her get dressed. I called Jay the day of the party to say my daughter decided to get dressed there as I was driving to the Venue. Jay arranged for Rina and team waiting for us at the door and expedited us to a suite with a bathroom attached to it along with a healthy tray of vegetables, dip and water in the suite. The maintenance person also made our day go smoothly. The rose on my daughter's guest book came off, Rina must have called maintenance and he came with a huge glue gun and fixed it. WOW!! The cocktail food was excellent and the sit down dinner was excellent. You can do so much planning but if the food is terrible that is the only thing people will remember. Italian people are very honest and blunt about what they have to say. Friends & relatives all said the food was really good. My daughter chose Leanard's because of the food, the beauty of the venue and she also connected with Jay. On the day of her party Giuliana connected with Rina. Rina was so kind, she helped my daughter get dressed and at the end of the night she helped get out of her dress. I will definitely book another party with Jay and the team at Leonard's. Warm wishes,Antoinette Gandolfo Euripide
On Sept 15th, 2018 my husband and I held our baby shower at Leonard's Pallazzo and I honestly can not thank them enough. Danielle took care of us as though we were family and made the process seamless. Yissela (hope I'm spelling that correctly) made sure our guests were well taken care of and everything was perfect. Our guests raved about the decor as well as the food and I wish to have many more events at this venue. We are still getting compliments and I'm sure we will for years to come.
Leonard's Palazzo helped us to organize our event and walked us through the process from beginning to end. The sales personnel and staff are attentive and willing to go the extra mile to accommodate our requests. I give them the very best recommendation for anyone to consider hosting an event. And, never to be forgotten, Danielle, Natalia, and Carlos were fabulous!
Jay and his team at Leonard’s were amazing. My family held a surprise birthday party for my grandmother and the staff did a great job at helping us with the finishing touches on the day. The maitre’d, Michelle, was more than helpful, she was very attentive and was there to take some of the stress off of us by taking care of things that needed to be done. I couldn’t be in 5 places at once but Michelle took care of that. I commend Jay for a job well done! During the planning process Jay wanted to make sure we were cost efficient, and gave us ideas that helped us to still achieve the birthday party we envisioned for my grandmother. He was readily available, and even stayed after hours in his office to wait for us to arrive at Leonard’s to drop off some decorations etc for the big day. Sometimes when going to catering halls the food isn’t that tasty , but I will say , Leonard’s food was good. My guests enjoyed the cocktail hour. We asked for rice to be on the menu to accommodate some of our guests who would like something a bit heavy , and Jay said he could get white rice. In our meeting we asked if he could get rice and peas, and he wasn’t sure if they would do it but he made a note. On the actual day we were surprised that they honored our request for the rice and peas, of which my guests, Caribbean people, loved it! The dinner, was plated nicely and tasted great as well. I know sometimes you get bland food at catering halls but they had a lot of flavor. Overall Leonard’s, is a great venue, beautiful to look at inside and out and great for pictures.
Jay Ahn and Leonards Palazzo are phenomenal! We celebrated two important milestones in my families lives- both the birth and celebration of my daughter Victoria & my parents 50th Wedding Anniversary. I could not have done such event without the planning and insight of Jay Ahn. From the day I met him, he put me at ease, my mom loves him, she still talks about how amazing he is to this day! He is an expert coordinator and planner. In my entire experience of planning events for work or family, I have never met any one more professional and personable. My program had a ton of details; a mariachi band at cocktail hour in the gorgeous Provincial room, and a traditional Chinese lion dance in the Leonardo Da Vinci room in the penthouse before my husband and I walked in with our newborn daughter. During our appetizers we had a performance by a Frank Sinatra tribute artist, and the coup de grace was the announcement of my parents 50th wedding anniversary- was my surprise to them an Elvis impersonator! My folks were such huge fans and it made the entire party emotional as they danced full of love and youth. The planning you can imagine it was a daunting process. We joked that this event was more complex than some weddings. In my culture (like most) family is everything and Jay knew that this event was a statement and it was meant to have that “WOW!” factor. Many thanks to the chefs too, the food was amazing! My family and friends are still talking about cocktail hour, so much food! There was literally something for everyone. For dinner several children had severe allergies and the chefs were able to accommodate our requests. Dinner was absolutely delicious, and the cake was so delicious too!!! I would be remiss if I did not thank Natalia our Maitre d’ who held our hands through this process. For a any event, especially a wedding I highly recommend the team at Leonards Palazzo and Jay Ahn. Jay is a true asset to Leonard’s Palazzo!!! Thank you so much Jay!! Can’t wait to plan our next event with you!
I couldn’t have been happier with the outcome of my daughters Sweet Sixteen. Our party planner Jay was more than just good. My daughter and I bonded with Jay and he went above and beyond with details and dedication to make sure my daughters day was perfect! I would not have asked for anyone else other than Jay for my event. The staff at Leonards is super understanding and always willing to accommodate to our needs especially the day of the party. My daughter would repeatedly tell me after the party ended how much she loved the Maitre d (Giancarlo) JC and his assistant and how they were always trying to help her and making sure she found everything that she needed.... even a pin for her Tiara, and tried to calm her down before she walked out because she was nervous. The staff at Leonards is so sweet and caring and my family and I couldn’t have asked for a better night! Thank you so much guys!!
My In laws had a family celebration at Leonard’s Palazzo. I was prepared to bring my own food for my multiple food allergic children but after speaking with Jay who was in charge of my sister in law’s event I felt very comfortable allowing his staff to safely prepare their meals. On the day of the event the staff seemed well informed and provided great reassurance things would be handled safely. My kids had a great time- as a physician as well as a mother it meant a great deal to me for my children to be safely included. The staff was quite professional, efficient and welcoming at all times- we had a lovely time!!!
I am very blessed having my occasions held here at Leonard’s Palazzo. Last Saturday is my daughter sweet 16th celebration and once again my whole family and I including all my guest was very satisfied with the service. We are so happy and thankful for taking care our special occasion. Leonard’s Palazzois really special in our hearts. I would like to give a special appreciation and lots of thank you to Danielle as our party planner who is really special and talented with her work. She is a real asset of your company. I also would like to thank Maitre D’ J.C. and Jennifer for doing a great job. The food was great and abundant and makes all of us happy and satisfied. Thanks for the waiters too. I will definitely going back next year for more celebrations and I want to request the same people to handle my party. I will definitely 100% to recommend Leonard’s Palazzo to all my friends, co-workers and to everyone I know because of your excellent service. Thanks again Danielle, you are the best! God bless you all. Ernesto and Hershey Family.

I can't begin to tell you what I absolutely love about this venue...but I will begin and I'll begin here. We chose Leonard's Palazzo for my daughter's HS graduation/Going off to college party. From the moment you pull up to the venue, you quickly come to realize the elegance and grace of the atmosphere set at this venue. That was exactly what we were looking for. From the professional valet attendants to the door opening for us, to all the responsive members of the team who helped us quickly decide this is the place for our celebration by their professionalism and genuine interest in our event. The banquet manager Jay Ahn leadership was phenomenal. I was extremely nervous when I began my search of a venue but that stress was quickly alleviated and turned into not only a proud moment due to the reason for celebration but also to how each and every request of ours was met with responsiveness and professionalism. Jay Ahn was kind and friendly and never minded our long list of requests. From the moment our guests arrived to this day, I consistently hear about what a great venue and party we had. People loved the room, the staff, the setting, and how smoothly the event was carried out. I have to thank the staff for their professional, yet friendly, attitude and I sincerely want to thank our Banquet Manager Jay Ahn and Maitre’d Giancarlo (GC) for making this event especially memorable for my daughter. I strongly recommend this place for any event, big or small. The staff was easy to work with, they were super understanding of our needs and they took care of everything to perfection. I couldn't have found a better place to celebrate my daughter's special day.

Everything was great. The entire affair. The service excellant, the food excellant nothing was left to be desired. I would highly recomend Leonards to everyone!
My husband and I started looking for a reception hall in March of 2017 and that's when we met Jay. We met him when we were looking at astoria manor in Queens. however we didn't like the hall but loved Jay. I remember even saying to my mother-in-law “I wish I could hire Jay to be our event coordinator with another venue”. Fast forward a few weeks later my husband and I were looking at Leonard's Palazzo and we just fell in love with the classic, romantic look and feel of the hall. We booked the grand ballroom for our reception, however I kept thinking about Jay and how great it would be if he was our event coordinator. We stopped by at Leonardo's one afternoon about a month before our event was to take place to finalize some stuff and I saw Jay walked by, I looked at my husband and whisper to him “that looks like Jay from Astoria Manor”. I made eye contact with Jay and signal to him that I wanted him to take over our account. I knew we made the right choice when we sat down and spoke to Jay, we just connected on so many levels. Our wedding was June 2, 2018 and it went off flawlessly. The staff at Leonardo's was amazing!!!! Rina and Racquel our bridal attendants took such great care of me and my husband. Jose our maitre’d made sure we were okay all night and catered to our guests. I would strongly recommend Leonardo's Palazzo to anyone who's looking for an elegant place with great staff to host an event. As for Jay he's amazing and made our big day unforgettable. He pays attention to details, consults with you every step of the way and he's very patient. Jay is the best!!!!!
Nothing was left to be desired. Place, atmosphere was beautiful. Food was delicious from the cocktail hour to the dinner. Service was excellant, staff courteous and very attentive. I highly recommend Leonard’s, Jay, and Martino and staff. I definitely would have another affair here. My guests also were very pleased and complimented me. Thank you to all who made my party so memorable and special.
Just hosted my daughter's sweet 16 this weekend and was very pleased with everything. From the beginning til the end, Leonards staff was fabulous, the food was delicious and amazing and the place was incredible. I couldn't have picked a better place and would also like to personally thank the banquet coordinator Danielle. She made my experience hosting my daughter's sweet 16 amazing and was very helpful and always there if I had any questions. I would definitely recommend Leonard's to all of my family and friends and would definitely host another party here. Great time was had by all. Am still getting compliments from family and friends about the party
My guests were very impressed of Leonard's and raved about the food. Jay Ahn was a delight to deal with and assisted me in planning my party and accommodating in all my requests. Nobody can beat Michelle. Her services during our affair was the best. If I get Jay and Michelle tandem again for my future big events, I will not have to worry about a thing. Thank you so much again.
My 60th Birthday Celebration at Leonard's Palazzo was a stupendous elegant foot stomping, hand clapping affair. The staff was cooperative, providing the necessities to make the event a success. The perfect warm lighting, crystal style appearance and delicious tasting food was enjoyed by everyone. My signature drink, "The Renéetini," was enlightening to the educated palate. A sweet tooth's delight. My 60th Birthday Party was a fabulous fairytale, an unforgettable moment in time. Luv ya LP
Yesterday, we celebrated our Mom's 70th birthday at Leonard's Palazzo. To sum it up it was breathtaking from the hospitality, ambiance, setup, and food. Even though we worked very closely with Danielle Amato to book this event it exceeded our expectations. Her professionalism, and experience in booking events, really put us at ease and was very informative and personable. Our host Michelle was cordial and worked hard to accommodate our needs and that of our guests. Mom was in heaven when she entered her suite. Besides that, everyone was talking about the food, cocktail hour was successful and the salad looked like a work of art. Literally! We are extremely pleased that we chose Leonard's Palazzo as our venue. Our most heartfelt thanks. We look forward to doing business with you in the future.
We highly recommend Leonards! We held our daughter's birthday party at Leonard's in December, 2017 and we cannot express how classy everything was. The lobby and room were beautiful. The service was fantastic. The food at the cocktail, buffet, cake and coffee were delicious! Granite/premium bar. I cannot emphasize how beautiful and classy everything was. Leonard's made us proud. I highly recommend Leonard's. Ideally located as well. Thank-you Ryan...!
I can't begin to tell you how elated me and my wife are with the incredible service we received from Danielle. She made the planning of my daughter's sweet sixteen seem easy!! she was there for us throughout! Always giving sound advice and always willing to go above and beyond her scope of service. She and the rest of the staff should be commended. On 10/14/17 we held my daughter Maria's sweet sixteen and I must tell you, Leonard's received rave reviews. We had some many people tell us that this was the best sweet sixteen they have ever attended. Thanks to all of the staff that night that made it possible. A very special thanks to Michelle out Maître d and Michelle, my daughters personnel attendant! they both were fantastic! In addition names I don't remember, the bar tenders, and the servers all did a marvelous job. Once again THANKS A MILLION FROM THE Bonanno family. If the owners would like to discuss with me I would be available. 917-642-0502
Leonard's Palazzo treated us and our guests with such excellance. The food, and service was excellant.

Our wedding was on 9/16. We planned our wedding in such a short period of time. We were very fortunate that Ryan at Leonard was helping us to pick the wedding food menu, planning the seating, recommend decoration, follow up ... too much to list. And no hassle all the way to the big day!!!! Food was awesome, lobster, salmon, crab leg, steak etc. Highly recommended the place, and MUST look for Ryan (highly recommended)
On September 23, we celebrated our daughter's Quinceanera. It was great to work with Joseph Carbone. The staff members were courteous, attentive and friendly. Michelle and JC were awesome. Food was delicious. Overall, we had a wonderful time. Thank you .
Amazing! Ryan Matland was great to work with! He made everything so easy and made the party really come together. The food was great, service was great. Everyone was very attentive and kind. Michelle as maitre d was the best! Overall we had an amazing party and can't wait to plan another one in the future with you guys. Thank you all so very much for a very memorable and special day! Highly recommended!!!
Leonard's did an excellent job on our Pastor's Installation Banquet. The food was excellent and the wait staff was very attentive to our needs especially when this banquet also involved a religious service. Hats off to Danielle who was great in setting this up for us.
I had my Birthday Celebration at Leonard’s Palazzo and it was fabulous. The place is absolutely beautiful and spacious. Everything was perfect. The entire staff was courteous, friendly, attentive and accommodating. The food was delicious. My guests raved about how delicious the food was from the Cocktail Hour through the main course. Ryan Matland, Director of Catering, was a great help from the beginning to the end. He made great suggestions with the food selection. I am a Seventh Day Adventist and he ensured that the food was prepared to our needs. I highly recommend Leonard’s for any birthday or wedding celebration. I gave them 5 Stars for excellent service, amazing staff, delicious food and beautiful venue.
It was amazing. I have no complaints whatsoever and I will recommend this place to everyone. Great service
Amazing food ... Ryan was awesome!
I had my daughters sweet 16 this Friday night and everything was fabulous. Our matre d Gian Carlo and our attendant Diana C were wonderful. They were so helpful and made the night run so smoothly. I can't thank them enough for making her party so stress free. The food was delicious it wAs just an over all wonderful day
Leonard's Palazzo is an unforgettable venue and experience. When we first walked into the place, it felt like such a welcoming environment with beautiful hallways and rooms and respectful clients. It is truly a breathtaking venue and kept our guests happy. The food was delicious and the service was amazing. We celebrated our daughter's sweet 16 here and we couldn't have been any more satisfied than we are!!

I recently had my son's engagement there. Ryan was very helpful and helped us with all the planning that we had to do. The room at the day of the event was decorated as was agreed. The staff was very friendly and attentive and the food was very good.
We had our daughters sweet sixteen at Leonard’s, could not have been happier. Ryan and the entire staff were phenomenal. Cannot thank them enough. Great party.
Thank you for making our annual Women's Brunch such a success. Everything was AMAZING! Our ladies raved about the venue, food and most importantly your staff. Ryan is a delight to work with. He made the planning and coordination super easy and relaxing. The staff, we only have praises for how attentive they are. Thank you again to Jose, German, and DiDi. We look forward to hosting our next event at Leonard's Palazzo.
Leonard's staff made my daughter's Sweet 16 party an unforgettable and magical experience. They were very helpful and compassionate. I won't ask for anything else. I am grateful to them especially Gizelle, Karen and Joe!!
My daughter's Sweet 16 this past weekend was fantastic! Leonard's did everything they said they would do and more to make the event wonderful! My daughters and I are on special diets and they made sure everything was delicious and safe for us to eat! Our guests enjoyed the food and everyone let us know what a great time they had including my daughters teen guests! I highly recommend booking Leonards for your next party and I have to say Ashley was wonderful to work with!
Leonard's Palazzo was an excellent place to host our wedding. Glad we made it a choice out of 2 choices. Highly recommended.Ryan Matland is the best,funniest and well knowledgeable Director I know. Highly recommend. Stephany Maldonado, Bridal Attendant and Jacklyn Quiles, Maitre D”, both ladies were excellent at coordinating and meeting our every need on that special day . Highly recommended . Overrall highly recommended 100%. 5 stars
I had my daughter's Sweet 16 this past Saturday, the 10th, and the venue was nothing short of amazing. From the day I signed the contract, to the day of the event, Joe Carbone has held my hand the entire way. The food, the ambiance, and most importantly the staff was perfect. My daughter who is very hard to please said when she gets married in 20 years, this venue is MUST. With that being said, I can't wait to hold my next event at the venue and work with the staff again..... With love....
Leonard's did an amazing job for our daughters Sweet 16 ! The staff were on point with everything they were just amazing, The food was excellent ! We were very pleased and amazed on how Fantastic everything came out! Thank you Ryan and staff!

Leonard's did an AMAZING job for my daughter's Sweet Sixteen. Everything ran so smoothly. The whole entire staff was flawless! The food was awesome! All my guests were just as impressed as I was. It was a magical experience my family will never forget. I highly recommend Leonard's for your next event and I look forward to using them again and again! Five huge stars!!!!!!
Leonard's Palazzo did such a great job with my daughter's sweet 16 party. Danielle the party planner was so sweet and very helpful. The place is beautiful and the food was excellent ! My 13 year old daughter can't wait until she has her sweet 16 party there!!
On October 1, 2016 we celebrated a milestone- our Daughter Michelle's sweet 16..what an amazing experience we had at Leonard's.. From start to finish Managing Director- Ryan Matland is such an extrodinary person, words cannot explain my gratitude to him..he made us feel as if we were family from the time we walked in his office to the time we walked out after our party..although I tormented him for about a year, he kept it cool and I did give him fair warning when I told him he'll never forget me lol. He's definitely your go to guy.. to make your vision comes true. And for his team of beautiful people!! Firstly, Michelle who was our maître d' for the night is truly the most heart warming person you'll ever meet, she made sure everything was on point throughout the night and it was :-), Stephanie who welcomed our daughter at the car and stood with her suite until her grand entrance was also, so so sincere :-). The venue is simply classy and elegant....the entire menu was delicious from cocktail in the empire room to the main course in the Tiffany and Crystal room and viennese hour just wow! I can go on and on because I'm a hard person to please but the Leonard's team pleased me completely.. And I realized that the night I left with my eyes filled with tears from complete satisfaction as I felt.. like I was leaving something behind. Once again I would like to thank you all soooooo much for a memory we will never forget. I wish I could have rated this 10 stars :-). Ps I'll be back lol.. Big hugs and kisses to you all. Melanie Khan :-)
I had my daughter's sweet 15 at Leonard's Palazzo on September17, 2016. I have nothing but words of gratefulness and appreciation to all the staff at this beautiful venue. A special thanks to Ryan Matland, our sales specialist. Without his help and guidance, my daughter's sweet 15 would not have turned out the way it did it. I can image a better, more professional, well run, and accomodating venue. The service by every single person was done well and with a smile. I get nothing but compliments. All my guests were floored with the beauty and elegance of Leonard's Palazzo. Everything exceeded my expectations. It was a magical night for all my family, and especially for my daugther!!

The staff at Leonard's Palazzo were great. I could not have asked for a better host of our Corporate event. Everyone was pleased with the decor, the food and the hospitality of the staff. My deepest appreciation to Ryan who went above and beyond to ensure that our evening was a delight. Thanks a million!
From the food to the service to the ambiance ... they were simply perfect!!
I thought my event was beautiful. The service and wait staff were extremely accommodating, and attentive demonstrating their ability to please. My only concern is that they started to clear tables shortly after the cake cutting (around 3:15pm ), which was an indication to my quests that it was time to leave. Although our party wasn't scheduled to end until 4 pm, (to my dismay) the tables had been cleared and the preparations for your next event had begun. Actually, all signs of my party had been dismantled well before 4 pm. I had envisioned that the last 20-30 minutes of the party would have been of guests dancing and enjoying themselves, not leaving. This was a great disappointment to me. Thank you for this opportunity to share.
Had my Daughter's first communion and Everything outstanding. From the service to the food.
We just celebrated our daughter sweet 16th at Leonards, it was a magical experience. My daughter, Hazel was so happy and pleased that everything looked wonderful. I want to thank Ashley for helping us plan and organize the party and the maitre d Michelle for making sure the party went as planned, her and the waitress assigned to our table were extremely helpful. We couldn't be more pleased. Thank you! Eilat and Richard
Leonard's made my special night a delight ! I couldn't ask for anything better danielle Amato made the process of months before the party such an easy process she was so easy going and helped so much. Ryan and Gisselle's my Matri Ds made my night so much fun and easier for me ! They brought me drinks and food when I couldn't get them, there service was out of this world !

She is the best!!!Everything was perfect and our maitre D was excellent in every way. She guided us through out everything it really was a perfect night for my daughter from the beginning to end..

I've been to many catering halls and many parties and this place is head over heels above the rest!!!!! its a class act from the word go!
Excellent venue!! Service was remarkable.
Great place for any type of party. Had my Dad's 90th b-day party there and couldn't be more happy. The staff was professional, friendly and accommodating. Our maitre d' Jackie was fantastic! Ryan helped us with our planning until the very end. Would highly recommend.
I love everything about Leonard's! First and foremost, the place itself is very elegant. That's why I didn't bother looking at other venues because the minute I stepped into the lobby, I already fell in love with it! I knew that this is the perfect place for the occasion and I decided that was it! The guests also raved about how beautiful the place is. Secondly, the details - from the linens, table set-up, lighting, and to top it off, our wedding cake - everything is just perfect and in accordance to what I had planned. The staff - our maitre d', bartender, and the entire wait crew - were all so attentive and accommodating to our needs. The banquet was never empty. The food was refilled promptly. The service was very orderly. The food selection was great! (I loved the salmon dish personally.) I heard a lot of praises from my guests about their satisfaction with their meal. This makes up a huge part in their enjoyment. Last but not the least, this celebration will not be a reality and a huge success without the careful coordination and generous assistance of our banquet manager, Joe Carbone. From the first time we consulted with him up to party time, he was there to make sure everything was in order. He even made a few suggestions that contributed to a perfect outcome. I relied on his expertise because he knows too well based on his experience in this profession. I am so thankful that I had the privilege of knowing him and working with him to make this occasion extra special and memorable for me and my family. My overall experience in Leonard's is way beyond my expectations and what I could ever dreamed of. I cannot thank all of you enough for the wonderful time we will forever cherish in our lives. Excellent service, amazing staff! Perfection is an understatement! Thank you all! I am forever grateful. Cynthia Santos 25th Anniversary & 50th Birthday Continental Room January 9, 2016
Danielle did a wonderful job she helped us from start to the end planning our holiday party food was excellent service was excellent would definitely come back
Everyone was so accommodating and amazing. There is nothing negative to say. Beautiful place, amazing people, and a great time!
My daughters' christening was so enchanting. The staff at Leonard's was extremely accommodating. I was so pleased with the service from the planning to set up to clean up. I look forward to hosting future events and will definitely be referring family and friends.
I want to thank the staff of Leonard's for making my baby shower a dream come true you guys were great. Joe Carbone you were wonderful extremely helpful and made our decisions easy you also did a great job on our cake. On the day of the shower everything looked beautiful. The food was delicious. Our guest are still talking about the party till today. I can not express how glad we are that we choose Leonard's for our Baby shower. Thank you all for a wonderful experience.
This venue was extraordinary for our event. The Leonard's team gave us everything we could've asked for and more. Thank you so much Leonard's!
Leonard's palazzo is not only elegant the staff is quite amazing. Soon as you pull in you feel as if you're the most important person there. The experience was truly amazing. I threw my mother surprise party there and she couldn't stop crying. The staff showed her nothing but respect alone with our guest. The only issue I had was the food. It was bland. The pasta was good, the salad too and so was the steak but everything else wasn't the best. Besides that perfect experience.
I had my daughter's Sweet 16 celebration at Leonard's. It was perfect! My guests couldn't say enough about how beautiful the room was, how good the food tasted and how excellent the service was. Eric, the banquet manager, went over and beyond to ensure that every request was addressed to my satisfaction. My maître de, Diana, was the best! She displayed professionalism, courtesy and most of all patience. I will have all of my future events here.
Just had my daughter's Sweet 16 party at Leonard's Palazzo this past Friday the 18th and it was amazing! Everything was perfect. The bridal suite was ready with food and drinks for the sweet 16 court when they arrived, the reception room was set up beautifully, and the food was delicious. The staff was attentive and courteous to the guests all night and the maitre'd, Michelle, was professional and kept checking on us to make sure we were okay. Thank you Danielle for all your help and thank you Leonard's for making my daughter's Sweet 16 the best it could possibly be!
When you reach out to Leonard's of Palazzo just know that you are going to get the best in everything - the best service - the best care for your event - we just had a family function there and the place was outstanding- beautiful atmosphere- food was great - you can trust the team there - totally awesome - 6 stars!
From the day we booked our event all the staffs of Leonard's are very helpful and courteous in dealing with us as their clients. On the day of the event everything went well and there were no glitches or problems that we encountered. Everything went smoothly and perfectly. Special thanks to Ashley who as an event coordinator made things right and orderly.
Absolutely outstanding venue for an event. I just had my daughter's sweet 16 a few weeks back and the management staff went above and beyond to ensure the event was a success. My family received all outstanding comments from friends & families who attended the event. From the cocktail hour to the main course this venue is second to none. Friends & families of ours are completely committed to use this venue for all occasions. We occupied the penthouse on the second floor and the settings with all the sofa chairs in the bar area presents a Manhattan style sophisticated experience. We are in debt to the staff.
This place is absolutely wonderful. I was more than happy with everything, the service, the menu... From start to finish Leonard's Palazzo made my life easy. They were amazing. I've had so many compliments from my guests. I would definitely recommend them!!!
Danielle Amato was excellent is planning our Sweet 16. She went above and beyond. On the day of the event, everything went smoothly and the staff was very attentive. The maitre d, hostess, bartenders, security and servers were great!! The food was really good and they had a variety of different options. The cake was delicious too!
Hi my name is Janet ,I had my daughters sweet 16 here at the end of June. I have to say it was absolutely wonderful and stress free because the Leanords staff was so on point about everything. Working with Danielle in the banquet office was great, she was very accommodating and helpful. The food was delicious! Our guests had the best time and I highly recommend Leanords for any affair. My daughter was truly a princess that night !
The service was great and the food was delicious. The place looked great and it was very fun.
OUTSTANDING all the way around. It was a fantastic party and Danielle, Eric, and the entire staff were so accommodating and helpful during the entire planning process. Would definitely recommend having a party at this lavish and nicely done catering facility.
An excellent evening on May I, 2015 at Leonard's Palazzo. Our Kiwanis Club of LaGuardia Airport was extremely pleased with the preparations, service, and food to celebrate our 74th year of Service to Community. The Airline Industry plays an important part to the borough of Queens. Each year we Honor an individual for their contributions, what better place than Leonard's. Thank you from all of us at the Kiwanis Club of LaGuardia Airport.
I had my daughter's graduation celebration very recently at Leonard's Palazzo . From the time I walked in the door, met my sales Representative, I had a good feeling that everything would turned out lovely, she was a pleasure to work with. She answered all my questions, though many, with poise and dignity. The Matre'd was splendid. My guests complimented the food. Yes I would recommend this venue, and use it again. Thank you all, Leonard's!
Chalynne's sweet sixteen was a success. Everyone was amazed with LEONARDS. The food was great, the staff was attentive and perfect. My guest could not stop talking about how beautiful everything was. Perfect venue to celebrate your most precious events.
I had a surprise 25th wedding anniversary for my wife May 15, 2015, and the night was perfect. From day one my planner Danielle was there to make sure everything was perfect. We did a fully bar and buffet and we couldn't have been more happy with all of the choices(especially the Honey Fried Chicken) KILLER! The staff that worked that night were incredible, thank you DiDi. Highly recommended.
My daughter had a beautiful communion. We enjoyed everything, thank you ??
Great service. Wonderful Party.
Leonard's helped us create a truly memorable sweet 16 for our daughter. The staff was professional , efficient, friendly and knowledgeable. This includes our experienced sales manager, Danielle Amato, she never says no, always finds a way to accommodate. As well, Alex our Maitre'd, who was on hand to help execute every aspect of the dining room, from start to finish. F&B and service were 5 star ! Thank you, we couldn't have done it without your help ! Best JoniRose and Sam
I had my wedding at Leonards in August 2010. Man what an amazing venue and quite affordable. Everything was great leading up to the wedding. Antonio and Ian made my fiance feel like a King and a Queen. The food selection was great and everyone still today talk about our cocktail hour. However the only reason I can't give a 5 was that on the day of the wedding the service was not good. I don't know what happened. The maitre d was not accomodating and really upset my wife. If it wasn't for that Leonards would get 10 stars from me. So if you plan on choosing Leonards please stress to them that you want complete clairty as to what your wedding day expectations should be
