Windows on The Lake Reviews

  April, 2018
The food and atmosphere was very nice. We even were seated by the windows for a very nice outside view. The only reason I gave a rating of four instead of a five rating is I would have liked to see labels on what the food was that was being offered. Some of the food I wasn't quite sure as to what it was. I would have loved to try it all but our tummies could only hold so much. Otherwise the food was delicious.

Frank and Michael are amazing! Everything was perfect and all the worrying I did, was for nothing. Both these men were so catering, helpful, reassuring, and did the absolute best. I had a great time, and I know my guests did as well. Jonathan, can't forget him, was also equally amazing!

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.
