  • Even in the midst of COVID-19 crisis, the Riverdale Manor was supportive, accommodating and encouraging throughout the planning process. The staff was outstanding, the food is fabulous - definitely not the rubber chicken of other venues. The new pavilion was perfect for the cocktail reception and surroundings made for a one stop venue to host our Daughter's wedding. So many of our guests commented on how beautiful the venue, fabulous the food and first class the staff. Monica Wagner and her team did a fabulous job in supporting the day, enabling all of us to focus on the celebration and enjoy every moment. I would highly recommend this venue for any occasion / celebration.
