Went to Stripd bass for our rehersal dinner. It's not a 'ritzy' restaurant, but a fun environment. We tested the place out a few times before our July wedding and the food and service was great. The night of our rehearsal dinner was the complete opposite. Our first round of drinks did not come until 45 minutes into the dinner, the food was cold when they brought it out, they did not bring out nearly enough for a party of only about 35, and the service was non-existant. The manager said that it was becuase they were very busy that night. My response was 'I don't care - we paid almost $4k upfront for this party so we should be your priority". The food was also not even close to the quality it was on other nights. We were utterly dissapointed. I'd recommend this place for a night out, but NEVER for a party of more than 4.
Fantastic location - the roses are hit or miss depending on the season. All weddings at Lydhurst start at about 6PM or so - which in July was hot, but not unbearable.
Be ready to spend more than you would on decorations for the tent than you would in a 'normal' hall or room - but you cannot beat Lyndhurst as a location - very much like traveling back in time - such a unique venue. The staff is also phenominal - especially Joseph. Food is the best I have ever had at a wedding
Recently renovated so the hotel is in great shape. The staff is helpful. For the price you absolutely cannot find better.
