Our Church enjoyed ourselves immensely. The Food and the Fellowship were exceptional and all of our servers were phenomenal. We were treated like royalty. I highly recommend this as your next Venue for that Special event. Our Church was pleased to have been there.
We would like to take this opportunity to thank Mr. & Mrs. Mariani and their staff for making our wedding day special. We had a small wedding ceremony in the beautiful garden at the back of the venue. This was followed by a larger reception that we invited 130 of our closest friends and relatives. Our package included 4 delicious choices for the dinner entrees. Several of our guests raved about the catfish but we thoroughly enjoyed our beef tips, mashed potatoes and green beans. Mariani’s is the kind of place we would highly recommend if you are searching for that perfect spot for your next big event.
Beautiful Venue! I had my wedding here 8/28/22. We unfortunately had to reschedule twice due to Covid and Mr. Mariani was very accommodating. We couldn’t have chosen better for our special day. Definitely recommend using Mariani’s for your event.
Thanks so much Mr. Mariani and Mrs. Gertie Words can’t express the gratitude that I have for you patiently working with my husband and me! The food quality was delicious for we’d chosen the plate-menu style. The staff was punctual, friendly and professional. Thanks for making my dream wedding come true! I love y’all and thanks once again
Mr.&Mrs. Anthony and Rasheena Graham
We got married there this month and everything was beautiful: the lake, the fountains, the flowers, it was all perfect. Mariani is the sweetest and is very helpful. He’ll help you find vendors (like decorators and DJS) so you don’t have to do too much more yourself. The food was also very good! I’d definitely recommend it for any event!
We had our wedding on 9/18/2021! Mr.Mariani was amazing from beginning to the end. He is very responsive and patient. The venue, the food, cleanliness etc was everything! Thank you for making the best day of my life AMAZING!!!
Where do I start. The location is beautiful, both inside and out. The atmosphere is perfect for weddings both inside and out. The food was amazing, seasoned very well and the servers provide service with a smile. I would recommend this venue to any couple that is looking for a place with full service desires. By the way I was a guest at a wedding and I was so impressed that I had to come and write a review.
I had a wedding at Mariani’s on 7/9/22. Everything was amazing. The staff was so friendly and professional and Mr Mariani was amazing. Anytime day or night I texted him with questions he would respond immediately. He even watched the weather for me and gave me options in case it rained. I would recommend anyone getting married to choose this venue. We had about 175 guest and they were all seated comfortable and fed promptly. The food was so good it was cooked to perfection. The venue is amazing and inside and outside is perfect for pictures. I rate them on a scale from 1-10 on everything definitely a 10!
When Mariano's first opened up my husband and I went there and had fabulous food. We were so happy that a restaurant had the kind of food that we liked. Now it's a venue and only for weddings and such things. We were very sorry to see the restaurant part close but we're happy for the owners that were making a lot of money with the wedding venue.
MY NOW HUSBAND AND I HAD THE TIME OF OUR LIVES (Married on 9/19/2020).
We actually live in Pembroke, so when we looked up venues near us we thought this place was a hoax. There is NO way such a nice place existed in the small town of Pembroke with a nice view. WE WERE SO WRONG. Mariani's is EXQUSITE. The price that you pay is a STEAL. You get the entire building and grounds all to yourself for an entire day with catering included. Honestly, you are just paying for the price of catering with this lovely venue. The staff is friendly and very accommodating, the owner was very professional, responsive, and attentive to my crazy, loud family. Mr. Mariani was available for all of my questions, concerns, and comments. If you are looking for a nice, AFFORDABLE venue to hold your event in or near Pembroke, I HIGHLY recommend choosing Mariani's. The food is definitely well worth the price. None of my guests went home hungry. If I could do it all over again, I would definite choose this venue!
Mariani’s Venue is beautiful and an amazing place for that special event. They do it all and the price is very reasonable. We had our wedding reception here and couldn’t have been more impressed. Mr. Mariani will not disappoint. He is a very nice man and he helped us feel very comfortable with our choice. Several great places in and around the venue for amazing pictures. If you are in the market for a venue, you need to go check out Mariani’s Venue.
My daughter used this Venue for her wedding. Very convenient, staff was kind and the Venue inside and outside was beautiful. I would highly recommend using this for any large gathering especially a wedding. The food was amazing as well.
We truly thank Marianne's Venue, management and staff for the excellent services that we received on our Oct 3, 2020 wedding. The food was delicious, facility was spectacular and unimaginable. I'd refer this venue time and time again.
My husband and I got married here last Saturday April 3rd. It was beautiful, Mariani was very helpful and was very responsive to any questions we have. I HIGHLY recommend this venue for your wedding! It is beautiful!
My daughter chose Mariani’s for her Wedding and reception venue. The first reaction for me was, why so far?!?! Pembroke? It has beautiful outside altar with fountain in the middle of a large pond as the background and if it rains we have this gorgeous tropical looking waterfall inside!! After hearing her excitedly describe the details and seeing pictures, I was ready to make the long trip.
It was extremely helpful to be allowed to decorate the day before! Mr. Mariani was available and very pleasant. The food had a wonderful flavor. Mr. Mariani explained that it is marinated 2 days prior to the event with herbs grown in the gardens at the venue.
The other staff was very friendly and helpful as well!
My only suggestion is to have a few fans for the bridal suite and Grooms area if you schedule for the HOT days of Summer.
Great experience for my Baby Girl’s Big Day!!
Thank you Mr. Mariani!!
Respectfully, Mama of the Ellis Bride.
My wife and I have worked with Mr.Mariani, planning our wedding for over a year. What a GREAT MAN !!! His venue is AWESOME, his staff is GREAT, the over all wedding from ceremony all the way to the reception was TOTALLY AWESOME!!! Our out of town guest couldn't get over how beautiful the venue was the flowers both indoor but mostly outdoor and in September, they were all at full bloom. This venue made our day even more special than it already was. Mr.Matiani and staff, YALL ARE AWESOME !!!!!!!
Mariani's Venue is a beautiful location for an event. My daughter's wedding was held in the back courtyard of Mariani's Venue on 11/23/19. The view was stunning with the fountain spraying water over the lake. Inside for the reception the indoor waterfall was soothing and added a great spot for photos in addition to the staircase leading from the mezzanine area. All of our guests loved the food and upscale atmosphere. Days later we continue to receive positive comments about the stunning appearance of the venue and the food. Mr Mariani is great to work with. He strives to reduce stress by anticipating ways to remove challenges that tend to be a part of event planning and hosting. He clearly explained the contract and there were no unexpected fees. His staff was also great to work with before and during the wedding and reception. I highly recommend Mariani's Venue for events.
