When we met Colleen at The Grand she was everything we were looking for. She was professional, she knew the answers to our questions without missing a beat, and added a compassionate touch that showed she cared not about booking a wedding and taking money, but about making our wedding the best day of our lives. Their payment plan made it very easy to afford to pay for other things while still paying off our reception. The overall price was very affordable, especially considering the open bar and the quality of the food and cake (which was included). They worked closely with our vendors to make sure there were no hiccups, and everybody had a ton of fun! Our guests won't stop talking about how great the wedding was, and how it was the best wedding they have been to. Thank you to Ed, Colleen, and all of the members of The Grand for making our night unforgettable, and for making this the best day of our lives.

What can I say? From day one, Ed and Colleen out did themselves. They are hands down the nicest and most accommodating people I have ever met. The thing is, they actually CARE about you. They don’t look at you with dollar signs in their eyes. They are kind and considerate. They obviously love what they do. They were honest with us every step of the way and worked with us when things seemed a little tight. Fast forward to the day of our wedding, WOW. Victoria was the best Maître D’ out there. Colleen and Ed were there to guide us at every step. They were never intrusive or pushy. They let us do what we wanted. The food was amazing. I am so, so, so thrilled with how amazing they were and how beautiful the venue is. Thank you again! We love you guys!

Everything from the planning to day-of-execution was done with an effortless grace by the owner, Ed and the director of catering, Colleen. The venue is beautiful, with the outside perfectly set up for the ceremony, even with the threat of rain. Victoria outdid herself as Maitre'd, as numerous friends and family have shared with us that it was "the best wedding they've been to". The venue nicely accommodated our guest list of about 150 people. Last but not least, a huge reason why everyone was so pleased was because of the food. The chef, Dan put together a delicious menu, from the cocktail hour through dessert. The Grand at 1600 delivers an unforgettable experience; the wedding photographer and wedding DJ commented that it was the best venue they have ever been to.

I couldn’t wait to write this review. I can’t say enough good things about this venue! We just had our wedding on 10/13/18 and it was all we could ever had hoped for and more! Ed and Colleen from the start were amazing, weren’t trying to push us into using their venue and just went with the flow. They make you feel so comfortable and welcome you with open arms. Everyone kept raving about how much fun they had and how good the food was! They decorated how I told them to and went above and beyond for us the moment we met them. Colleen was my maitre d for the night since the other girl was sick and let me tell you she was the absolute BEST! She made sure I was having the best time ever and was always right there when I needed her. I assure you if you pick this venue you will not be disappointed. We love you guys and thank you so much again!

We got married at The Grand at 1600, and I can’t say enough about our day. Colleen and Ed saw to everything -- the food was fantastic and our guests thought the happy hour was dinner. We were never without a plate or drink in front of us all night and they both really cared how our day went off. You knew it wasn’t t just a job, they took pride in our day and treated us like family. I can’t recommend this venue enough. If you're hosting an event, this is the place to go!

Working with Colleen to plan our day couldn't have been better. Whatever ideas we had or issues that came up, she was willing to work with us to make everything come out great. The staff during our reception was amazing and Ed, the owner, was on hand to offer assistance and ensure the night went smoothly. The food and desserts were incredible; for weeks we received compliments from friends and family in attendance about how great a time they had and how much they enjoyed the never-ending food and dessert choices. We're so happy that we stopped in to check The Grand out...now it will always be etched in our memories.

From the first moment of talking with Colleen and Ed we knew this was where our wedding dreams would come true! They both helped us every step of the way and they were both very accommodating into making our day the Most Perfectly, Smooth and Bright Wedding Day! They were by our side every single step of the way, responded to all emails/phone calls/texts within minutes! The food is unbelievably delicious, the entire staff treats you and all your guests like family, the whole venue is absolutely gorgeous in every way! The hotel is attached to the venue which makes this very accommodating for all your guests, not to even mention that the Garden State Parkway Entrance/Exit is just up the block. We cannot thank The Grand at 1600 enough for making our wedding day so intimate, so perfect, and such a very joyous occasion for my husband and I and our family and friends!

Excellent food - All guests we spoke to were very satisfied with appetizers at cocktail hour, and the main course was delicious (we had salmon and prime rib).
Excellent price - We found their pricing to be very competitive.
Elegant atmosphere. We did NO extra decorating and the ball room was just beautiful as furnished.

Most of all, excellent people - Ed, Colleen, and Cheri were very helpful and the wait staff was professional and courteous - just tremendous. Their one-event-at-a-time method gives the staff full focus on your event. Colleen kept everyone on schedule and everything flowed smoothly.

We are highly satisfied with our experience.
