One of the best weddings I have attended in a long time! The ceremony was held outside and it was just beautiful. The inside was gorgeous and the food was incredible! I still can not stop thinking of the potato bar at the cocktail hour, all I can say is wow! The staff was wonderful and friendly, the bartenders were... More

While the venue is lovely for a wedding, the food is average and was served barely warm. Servers were rushing us through the meal. Stood up to kiss & say hello to someone to turn around and having my pasta plate cleared before I barely ate any. Lovely reception room but disappointing food.

I would give The Imperia a six out of five if I could. The wedding was absolutely perfect! The service was outstanding. The cocktail hour plentiful and over the top. The dinner delicious!! Margaret and Brenda (and the rest of the crew) never missed a beat!!! I wanted to Thank You for making the wedding the most memorable occasion possible.... More

I went here for a work party. I was pleasantly surprised. The food was very good. Nice variety of appetizers and all were good. Drinks were what you would expect. Service was great. Would consider if I needed a place for a party. The only negative here is location, getting in and out of the lot is a pain onto... More

Yes, I can be very picky and well if I am investing money into an event, I expect to get the same investment back in the food I am purchasing with the event. The service was great and professional. The food seemed to be a bit out of touch because it did not taste fresh but instead more like a... More

Attended a wedding here this past weekend. Wonderful servers (except for one who went out to smoke weed every 15-20 minutes and was so stoned that he could barely do his job) and staff. Our family had a great time at the wedding and thought the venue was lovely.

We visited this venue three times this year and each visit was "just ok". The venue itself is a very lovely place to have an affair. Good location easy access from Rt 287. Nice staff very polite and professional. Each time the food was "just ok". One was a sit down dinner the other two were buffet. The sit down... More

Went here for a large reception and it was just lovely. Tasty food and nice service. Lovely grounds for photos. Lots of parking. Clean bathrooms. There were over 400 people at the event and they managed to get everyone fed buffet style with multiple food stations and quick replenishment of food trays.

My cousin got married and had her reception at the Imperia. The outdoor wedding venue was beautiful. The food was excellent. We made the mistake of eating too many appetizers before dinner but we couldn't pass up the mashed potato bar or the carving station. The wait staff was friendly and professional. I don't live in New Jersey but I... More
