Got married at Samuel’s on 10/13, and it was the best experience. They were by far the best value when we were searching for options, and they made our wedding amazing! The food was delicious and hot, and the service was exceptional. Would recommend them to anyone, and wouldn’t change a thing with them as our venue.Kristen, WeddingWire
We went to a very large (300+) wedding here over the weekend. The steak is by far the best steak I’ve had at a wedding, with out doubt. Everything was done perfectly and the wedding went off without a hitch. The staff was extremely professional and provided excellent service. Beautiful patio out back to hang out on and get fresh air.Joe M., Yelp
Sue was wonderful and was there for us every step of the way! Our wedding was in the center room and it was absolutely gorgeous. Food was excellent; we had the buffet and we had so many of our guests came up to us and compliment how awesome the food was. We couldn’t have asked for a more perfect day. Thank you so much to Sue,Mark and their fantastic staff for making our wedding day so special. We would HIGHLY recommend Samuel’s to anyone searching for a wedding venue!Christin, WeddingWire
Our daughter was married at Samuel’s last month – what a perfect location for an outdoor wedding and the upstairs Josephine room was equally perfect for the reception. All of the guests had a wonderful time and kept gushing at how wonderful Samuel’s was. The staff was VERY helpful, the food was incredibly good – esp. the vegetarian option. My only complaint – there was so much good food, I was too full to eat it all !! The flaming dessert “show” was great! Overall, the perfect location for our daughter’s special day. Highly recommend to other couples planning a wedding – even if you don’t live in Buffalo (we don’t). Well worth the drive for you and your guests.Sue, TripAdvisor
We had our wedding here on July 26, 2013. I wish I could give them 10 stars because they were that amazing. They were so helpful before the wedding with accommodations and the day of the wedding they were incredible. They made sure every detail was exactly how we wanted it and made sure we didn’t have to worry about a thing. The best part was that they were very accommodating with kids and people who had special dietary needs. I found out later in the night by one of my guests that my nieces date couldn’t eat gluten due to allergies. They had no problem going back into the kitchen to make a gluten free plate on the spot. I always joke that if I were to ever get a divorce and married 5 more times, I’d choose Samuels every single time!Ashley N., Facebook
I strongly recommend Samuel’s!! My husband and I went to about 10 places before we decided with them. You just cannot beat the price for what you get. If you leave hungry, you’re a fool. I worked with Sue who was amazing!!! I would email her throughout with any questions and she always had the best answers/opinions. The day of… Everything was PERFECT. Everyone that worked on the day of our wedding was fantastic, made sure everything was exactly how I wanted it.Brenda, WeddingWire
My college roommate got married here and I was SO impressed. The food was ABSOLUTELY AMAZING, the place was huge and beautiful. The staff as far as I could see as a guest point of view was very professional and friendly. Super impressed everyone, you deserve the 5+ stars.Krysal H., Google
We went here for a wedding reception and came away totally impressed with the staff, the grounds, and the food. The people running this facility really have their act together and are right on top of everything. They have several different size rooms to hold whatever size party you need and the food was amazing. Everyone I talked to had a great time and really was amazed at how good the food and the service was.Gary W., TripAdvisor
I was there as a vendor photographing a wedding for a wonderful family. The staff was very accommodating to us as vendors. The service and the food was served presented and delicious. From a photographers point of view I cannot say enough about the way we were treated. The property has many excellent areas to capture great images.Karl G., Facebook
I am so happy I found this venue. Sue was exceptional. I didn’t need a wedding planner as she was right on with everything. My wedding was small (60 guest) but everyone loved everything about it; the venue, the food, the service, etc. I am very satisfied about the outcome. Thanks so much for making my special date one that’s hard to forget.Evelyn, WeddingWire
The entire experience was stress free from start to finish. They kept track of all the details to make our wedding reception a beautiful night to remember. We were actually able to “relax” at the reception and not have to worry about a thing.Rebecca, WeddingWire
Everything came together and staff was on top of things! The outdoor ceremony space was beautiful and all my guests had a great time. I would definitely recommended Samuel’s for a wedding venue.Amanda K., Google
We could not have picked a better venue for our wedding! We held the wedding ceremony in the gardens and the reception immediately following. The staff was so attentive to detail and guided us along the way from beginning to end. I especially loved the added touch of the champagne toast for the wedding party by the water fountain after the wedding ceremony. I will definitely recommend Samuel’s to my family and friends for their events.Shannon, WeddingWire
Wonderful experience from the beginning! Beautiful facility and excellent staff made for an extremely memorable night… We loved the food, ambiance and the newly renovated areas as well. What we also thought was special about Samuels was they helped us coordinate several components of our wedding; chair covers, flowers, up-lighting etc. Anything you could think of, Sue had great recommendations on!Michelle M., Facebook
Samuel’s Grande Manor exceeded our expectations in every way from the first day we walked in to the day after when we picked up our boxes. Karyl and Sue guided us through the process of planning even though we were 1800 miles away – they both made us feel like our wedding was the most important to them even though we knew how busy they were. The venue and the Josephine Room were beautifully decorated, the food was not only plentiful but so delicious!!! The filet was out of this world tender. Our event captain, Raneheah, was meticulous in setting up our centerpieces, memory table, displays, floral arrangements and on and on. Our music DJ Debbie from Advent Sound was awesome! We can’t thank Samuels enough and highly recommend them to anyone who wants a perfect wedding reception!Nancy P., The Knot
Samuel’s was absolutely amazing. Up until the wedding they worked with us and gave us paperwork that kept us organized. The day of the wedding, we barely had to lift a finger! They were there with everything we needed. The night ran smoothly and we had a great time!Monica, WeddingWire
