How is the service & food
Between ateres chynka & tiferes mordechaiJanuary 16, 2011 1:41 pm at 1:41 pm #729820
About 400 guestsJanuary 16, 2011 2:22 pm at 2:22 pm #729821shtusimParticipant
Eden Palace is a very good deal. they have a package for a 400 guest minimum of $40 a person.
IT IS VERY GOOD. WE MADE 4 WEDDINGS THERE and we were very happy each time!!January 16, 2011 2:36 pm at 2:36 pm #729822yentishParticipant
tiferes mordechai- new place between flatbush & boro park 600 mcdonald avenue, a bit on the smaller side but could probably fit 400 guests comfortably, dance floor not so big, but again if you’re having 400 it probably fits your needs, beautiful decor- they really focused alot on the interior, which you don’t find with most halls. i was only at one wedding there and service and food were fine, like i didn’t notice anything blatantly bad
ateres chynka- located in flatbush on elmwood avenue off ocean pkwy, much larger and their minimum is like 500 so might not even be an option for you. huuuge dance floor and dining hall, we fit 530 very comfortably and with big dance floor. i go there often for weddings and love the food, and we made a chasuna there ourselves and the service was great, the whole process very organized, they answered all our questions, and alot of ‘extras’ (nicer meats at smorg, choices at meal) were included at no extra cost, it was part of the pkg deal. we were very happy there, but again you have to meet their minimum. the only annoying thing which is a very small detail is that they have a custom-fit canopy on their chuppah and they dont want it to get ruined so they dont let any florist put ANY flowers or toulle or anything on the chuppah, so it looks very plain, but we just put nice flowers in the front and it looked fine- not a reason to not use the hall, im just mentioning it.
you may want to look into tiferes rivka, another new place that just opened.
mazel tov and good luck!January 16, 2011 2:48 pm at 2:48 pm #729823Fast ForwardMember
We were also very happy with Eden Palace. We especially liked that it is on ground level and there is a separate chupah room so there is no pushing and shoving while the waiters are setting up the tables. They took very good care of us and everything ran like clockwork.January 16, 2011 3:33 pm at 3:33 pm #729824
agree w/ above.
Ateres Chynka- just know it’s $20,000. minimum for 500 guests.we made a wedding there a year ago.
Tiferes Mordechai- yes, newer, a little smaller,very nice, prob. cheaper. I’ve been to 2-3 chasanas there.
Eden Palace- very nice. I saw advertised $99 per couple pretty much all inclusive, I believe: food, music, photography, flowers? we couldn’t even consider it because my niece got married there but was tragically niftar w/ her husband 2 years later, :(( … leaving a 4 month old son who survived w/o a scratch, B’H.
El Caribe- very nice place, but I believe it’s a non-Jewish owner, if that makes a difference.January 16, 2011 3:39 pm at 3:39 pm #729825OfcourseMember
Anyone know anything about ATERES GOLDA (Bobov)? How does it compare to the other halls?January 16, 2011 3:45 pm at 3:45 pm #729826oomisParticipant
I loved RAZAG, we made our daughter’s wedding there four years ago. They were extremely gracious, the food was great, and we were totally happy. Eden Palace is beautiful, if you are ok with going to Williamsburg,January 16, 2011 3:52 pm at 3:52 pm #729827
I called tiferes mordechai was very cheap compaired to the other hall they fit 500 with dance floor I spoke to a lot of ppl the manager is amazing nothing is a problem someone just told me they were on the phone with him for hours he helped them with doing seating and nothing was a problem. the food is great what else can you want for your kidsJanuary 16, 2011 3:53 pm at 3:53 pm #729828
RAZAG is very nice. do they hold by the Crown Hts. rule of the chosson not being able to sit with the kallah?January 16, 2011 4:06 pm at 4:06 pm #729829
Just found out 2 very important things # 1 tiferes mordechai has a min of 180 couples about $12,500 a compleat wedding insted of $20,000 big diffrence # 2 the manager of tiferes mordechai was the former manager of ateres chynkaJanuary 16, 2011 4:18 pm at 4:18 pm #729830charliehallParticipant
My wife and I were married in the beit knesset of her synagogue, and the seuda was in the basement. It was a beautiful site for a wedding — far nicer than any wedding hall I’ve ever seen — and we saved a ton of $$.January 16, 2011 4:22 pm at 4:22 pm #729831
gr8! go down & book ’em!
we wanted that hall, but our machatunum (groom’s side), who wanted Ohlei Torah, said it was too small, & sort of railroaded us into Ateres Chynka. we ended up inviting EVERYONE we know/knew for the whole affair!
& then, surprise! we made another wedding (our son’s) 6 months later.. & were still in major shock over what we had spent for our daughter’s wedding.
B’H, we have 2 very happy couples!!.. in addition to the 2 happy couples we married off 6 months apart 8 yrs ago!! 🙂January 16, 2011 4:37 pm at 4:37 pm #729832HealthParticipant
Tifferes Mordechai – Why is everybody calling it a new place? Isn’t that one (I forgot the name) that was just fixed over? Noone calls renovated places as new.January 16, 2011 4:56 pm at 4:56 pm #729833
Health tiferes mordechai is only two years old it used to be bais malkah very small bar mitzva hallJanuary 16, 2011 5:01 pm at 5:01 pm #729834
Always here were was your 2nd weddingJanuary 16, 2011 5:03 pm at 5:03 pm #729835
Ateres Chaya is convenient for Flatbush/Boro Park. Mr. Jacobowitz is a mentch and will work with you!!!
With halls in the basement, check out walking down the stairs for safety reasons and make sure they have a permit for a hall downstairs.
Be wary of halls that charge extra for each additional chair they put out or for unionized halls that let you sit only at the table with number on your card, even if it is an error and the table is a children’s table. I had that happen to me in a posh hall and i was ready to leave rather than sit with such as 3-8 year olds. When the person who invited us saw us trying to leave, they literally had to fight for something they were paying for ,big money a bigh $100,000 for the night!January 16, 2011 5:07 pm at 5:07 pm #729836
tiferes mordechai $65. A couple its the best price out there.January 16, 2011 5:17 pm at 5:17 pm #729837
Jan. 2010: Ateres Chynka
June 2010: Holiday Inn, Suffern (The Holidome)- kallah’s side chose.
Jan. 2003- Ateres Shlomo – now gone
July 2003- The Empress (formerly Armon Terrace)- now goneJanuary 16, 2011 6:12 pm at 6:12 pm #729838
it would be so helpful if someone doing research now could just list the typical brooklyn halls and minimums and prices.. thanksJanuary 16, 2011 6:57 pm at 6:57 pm #729839arcParticipant
razag and T”M have awful parking. every wedding Ive been to at chynka had valet so it wasnt an issue.January 16, 2011 7:02 pm at 7:02 pm #729840
Lia ateres chaya for basic is more then $25,000January 16, 2011 7:06 pm at 7:06 pm #729841
Did any one over here make a wedding in tiferes mordechaiJanuary 16, 2011 7:25 pm at 7:25 pm #729842
Lets not forget Sasson vesimcha, they own 2 halls, 1 smaller in BP for Bar Mitzvas, Sheva Brachos, one larger on CI for Weddings. Owner is a mentch, a great person to work with. Made a beautiful Simcha. He was the caterer of Aterest Shlomo. Food is great, well priced, and the guy is wonderful to work with.
Mazal Tov!January 16, 2011 7:58 pm at 7:58 pm #729843
Yep he is a very nice guyJanuary 16, 2011 8:14 pm at 8:14 pm #729844yentishParticipant
sounds like tiferes mordechai would suit your needs well, but you have to ask about valet parking because im not sure they have, or you have to pay extra. its stunning hall, will fit ur guests and great price- i say go for it!January 16, 2011 8:25 pm at 8:25 pm #729845
I agree, go for it! how much more could valet parking be? [$500 @ Ateres Chynka.] for the price per couple you’re getting, it’s still kadai.
my husband never does valet parking; he finds a spot himself.January 16, 2011 8:52 pm at 8:52 pm #729847
Did anyone make a wedding in tiferes mordechai or does anyone know the managerJanuary 16, 2011 8:57 pm at 8:57 pm #729848
Every hall as a issue with parking and everyone offers valet parking whati am looking for is service good food good price and very nice managementJanuary 16, 2011 9:15 pm at 9:15 pm #729849mom of a fewMember
Tiferes Mordechai food is excellent and the hall is very elegant and tasteful (light blue and silver and crystal) you have to go down two flights to the hall and you MUST have valet parking because it is nearly impossible to find parking but it is a great option.January 16, 2011 9:53 pm at 9:53 pm #729850
there’s one flight of stairs you havta walk up/down & then an elevator @ Tiferes Mordechai.January 16, 2011 10:34 pm at 10:34 pm #729852
I like Sissu Vesimchu more than TM- TM is 2 flights down, gives a basement feeling to me personally, Sissu VeSimchu/ Sasson Vesimcha are street level, parking spots in area, great food, conveneint locations, great management and very reasonable cost.
Call them and let them know a happy customer (Simcha in Nov) referred you.
When you say service, do you mean white gloves? Hilton style?January 17, 2011 5:08 am at 5:08 am #729853smartcookieMember

We made a chasuna at Tiferes Mordechai about a year and half ago. Was totally satisfied with every aspect, highly recommended. The manager was extremely pleasant to deal with, very much worked with us. because there’s no carpeting around the dance floor, it makes the size very flexible, and they set up the tables to maximize the dance space. Some people don’t like that everything is in one room. We’re not that fancy, and neither are the mechatunim, so no one minded, and they pretty much have the setup routine down to a science so it’s not too uncomfortable after the chuppah. The chossan/kallah room was spacious, there is an elevator, valet parking was extra, but not unreasonable. And the food was just fine – I didn’t get to eat much at our simcha, naturally, but I’ve had it at others, so that’s how I know (my favorite is the squash soup). In fact, when i wanted to order certain dishes, the manager recommended not when he didn’t feel he’d get top (seasonal) quality at that time. Minimum was 180 couples, we may have had slightly less, i’ve been to other simchas there that were closer to 500, and no problem.January 18, 2011 1:32 am at 1:32 am #729858
Thank you very much (a women outside bklyn)I am very satisfied with your message I know I have between 360 and 500 & I am comfortable that it will be ok I will book tomorrow they are coming in with a better price then any other hall for what they offerJanuary 18, 2011 3:14 am at 3:14 am #729859A Woman Outside BrooklynParticipant
Mazel Tov, Chazak! I told the manager at the end of the evening that I’m sorry i don’t have another daughter, LOL. But will recommend it to future daughter-in-laws.January 18, 2011 3:19 am at 3:19 am #729860
yay!! I’m so happy you got a good answer, & are gonna book it, Chazak!

RAZAG is very nice. do they hold by the Crown Hts. rule of the chosson not being able to sit with the kallah? “
I don’t know what they hold now, but four years ago they SURELY did not hold by that idea. Our wedding was not like that.January 18, 2011 7:30 pm at 7:30 pm #729863
