Last month my husband and I decided that we needed to have a nice getaway weekend. We had been to Catlin Gardens before for an event and decided that we would try out their new ho...

Shoddy service made the meal intolerable. I will never return and would not recommend this restaurant to anyone.

Wonderful Place 12/7/2011

I had a party here for my father and it was perfect. The staff was very attentive. The food was excellent. I would book another event there. The event manager made sure everything was perfect. They even have an 40 room Inn on site. As part of my father's present I reserved a room for him. He loved it. The whole atmopshere there is very elegent and regal. My guests at the party were blown away. They couldn't believe they were still upstate. A Wonderful Place. more

Disgusting Food 6/13/2010

The "food" that was served at the wedding we attended June, 2010 was no less than disgusting overall. The cocktail hour was my first indication that management took little pride in the preparation of their meals. From the non-descript filling in the stuffed mushrooms, to the oil-soaked wrappers of the baby food-filled spring rolls, it was a culinary calamity. The pasta in cream sauce with shrimp and scallops, although appealing to the imagination, was unappealing to the palate. The scallops were so tiny, that initially I pushed them aside, thinking they were garlic clove halves. I do give credit where credit is due and therefore must say that the lollipop lamb chops were good - not great, and the fresh fruit selection was excellent in flavor and freshness, the credit here is given to nature, not man. Moving on the the reception, the lobster ravioli were ...there are no words. The salad was a vinegar-soaked, rumpled melange of tough, but wilted (how did they pull that off?) greens. The main course selection of salmon, stuffed chicken and prime rib left the guests at my table grumbling and pushing their food around on their plates like fussy three year-olds. My tablemate's salmon was sickly pale and "fishy." The guests who ordered the prosciutto-stuffed chicken were "fishing" for the prosciutto, and finally one excitedly exclaimed, "I found a piece!" My prime rib au jus - had no jus. There was a thick, gelatinous blob of brown gunk slathered over the meat, which covered the wide band of fat running through it. So, is that were the Gulf oil-flow excess is going? As for starch and veg, we had 3 small, boiled potatoes rolling around on the plate (saves time and labor), and 2 sprigs of white aparagus. Enough said for the potatoes, but the asparagus needs commentary. The aparagus I am accustmed to is a member of the grass family, i.e. it has seeds on the tip which are typically numerous, tender and tasty. Okay, I see the 2 fat chopsticks, but where is the asparagus? Finally, the desserts deserve an A+ - excellent! more

Beware 12/13/2009

Words of wisdom... If you want to hire the Band, or DJ of your choice, do not go to a reception hall that requires your entertainment to carry their own "Liability Insurance". Only the "most expensive bands and dj's" can afford this. All reception halls can, and have for years. This is a scam to get you to hire only th...e bands on their "preferred list". There are almost always kickbacks involved. There are only two halls (that I know of) in the Hudson Valley trying to pull off this scheme. Ask first... Do you require the entertainment to carry their own liability insurance. If the answer is yes, then you are dealing with unscrupulous businessmen. more

Nice catering facility 6/22/2006

I recently attended my second event at Catlin Gardens and was again impressed with the food and service. The first event I went to was held during the winter, so I wasn't able to see the namesake gardens. The second, however was an outdoor wedding with a cocktail hour at the outdoor bar in their gardens. The setting was so beautiful! I'm sure the staff makes decent arrangements in case of rain, but you cannot beat the outdoor setting. The staff seemed on top of everything. Lines for the buffet were not too long. For buffet food (I usually prefer sit down), the choices were excellent, as was the quality. From what I understand, the prices at Catlin Gardens aren't cheap (over $75/head), as far as Orange County catering facilities, but this is one of the best in the county. I feel our friends got a lot for their money. The open bar was well stocked, the food was good, the facility was clean (let's be honest -- there are some nearby caterers that leave a lot to be desired in this aspect), and we really enjoyed ourselves. more
