Amazing service!! I couldn't believe how beautiful every thing turned out! My niece's christening was a beautiful event that will be remembered for a long time. The decorations were done perfectly and the staff was so friendly to all my family! Thank you so much for everything.

AMAZING!!! This was the perfect place to have our reception, the aura was so calm and inviting. My wife started crying when we were shown the way it would all look, and to see her feel so emotional over it, assured me that it was it. All the staff was so polite and I could tell they were having fun with our family members, and that was nice to see them treated so well. Needless to say we were both very pleased with the turn out. Thank you sooooo much!!!

Excellent Customer Service! We had been all over searching for a wedding venue, and were very impressed with the quality of the Elite Palace. Everything is extremely well-organized, we were worried about everything turning out well for our special day but it was more than we could have dreamed thanks to Elite Palace! Far, far above and beyond some of the other venues we looked at.

We just got married here on March 26, 2011. We were terrified by the thought of everything going wrong. The workers from Elite answered with patience and assured every question I had with answers. From beginning to end, it was an amazing night.The reception was amazing, and the food was raved about by every guest. The cake was GORGEOUS and delicious. Everyone enjoyed themselves and I haven't heard a single complaint. I would recommend this venue to anyone and everyone!

My wife and I got married at Elite Palace in August and we had the most wonderful time. The service provided by the staff was impeccable and they took care of every detail which ran like clockwork. We understand that any wedding venue is a business and to some degree you are on a "production line", but we never felt anything other than special and the only ones that mattered. We had no negatives whatsoever and would highly recommend Elite Palace to anyone wanting a lovely stress free wedding venue.

This place is beautiful my family and friends fell in love with it, this place looks so nice, spacious and elegant. I heard great things about this place and it's true. We came here here for my aunt's 40th anniversary party. We had a blast with the foods, the settings, and all of the dancing going on. I have to say, if I have to renew my vows it will be here at Elite Palace for sure.

I was trying to find a venue for a Christmas party for the company that I work for. I came across Elite Palace and thought it would be great. The size was perfect for that amount of people we would have and the price was great. They were even able to cater it. They were very accommodating to all of our needs. Great place.

I was planning a business luncheon for my company to work out new plans. I remember a friend telling me about Elite Palace so I thought that I would check them out. They have amazing taste and the building is extravagant. The luncheon was a success and we will be having all of our functions at Elite Palace.

I got married about a month and a half ago at Elite Palace and it was AMAZING! They set it up just as I imagined it to be. I couldn't have asked for a better place. The food and waiters were fantastic. Thank you so much for making this an even more memorable night for me and my husband.

If you are planning to host an event in Woodside, this is the place to do it. Bar none, this is one of the nicest venues in the area. The staff is great and they are awesome to work with.

I had my wedding at Elite Palace in June and it was totally amazing. I loved Elite Palace from the second I saw it. It's absolutely the perfect wedding spot. So unique and gorgeous! They help you arrange everything--like food, alcohol, and amazing servers--Elite Palace is totally organized and everything turned out perfectly. The Florentine Ballroom was beautiful for the ceremony and the Grand Ballroom perfect later at night for hanging out. It really was the perfect place. I hope I get invited to another wedding or event at Elite Palace just so I can go back!

The first thought that popped in my head when I saw this place was...WOW! Beautiful doesn't even begin to describe it. The staff is excellent, the process of planning an event here was so easy with very little bumps in the road. If you choose to have your event here you will not be disappointed.

My buddy was so happy having his wedding here, not only because this was the wedding of his life and just as he had hoped everything would turn out (can we guess Groomzilla?), but also he was marrying the most beautiful and wonderful woman.

I went to a wedding here a couple months ago and the food was non stop and amazing. They brought out Kani Salad. That's my friend's favorite and they had it and it was delicious. The place was totally hooked up electronically to a closed circuit TV so that everything is viewed from the back of the room so we don't miss a thing. They had a BOOM so that the camera can video things from above and sweep the dance floor for better images for the video. The stage mechanically pushes out and then LIFTS the couple up into the air, turns them around and then brings them back down. Finally, this is such a beautifully decorated palace for a wedding.

By way of comparison, we have been to half a dozen weddings in the past 6 months including the Pierre in Manhattan and the Trump National Golf Course in Westchester, and though we may be biased, we believe that Elite and all of our vendors not only measured up but made our wedding day just, if not more, memorable and elegant.

I have to say, over the past year my fiancee, and my family, and I were under an immense amount of stress because of the reviews posted on various websites. In truth, we had the night of our lives at Elite Palace. We believe that Elite not only measured up but made our wedding day just, if not more, memorable and elegant. Seriously, thanks for everything!

You can certainly tell they pride themselves on their food and excellent service, and they have taken the extra step in creating a menu, which is fabulous and is sure to entice anyone! They really know how to go above and beyond! Thanks for a memorable night!

I have to say...over the past year my fiancee, and my family, and I were under an immense amount of stress. We had the night of our lives at Elite Palace. Igor Tsan catered to our every need and was truly concerned with my wife's happiness. Now I won't say that there were not any bumps in the road, however, with any venue there will be bumps and it's up to the bride and groom to plan around them and hedge against them. The following was our experience with Elite, their recommendations, and their vendors.

1. When we (Bride, Groom & bridal party) got to the bridal suite, there was no food for anyone in the bridal party. 2. With not enough food there were no glasses for the bridal suite. So the money we paid did not even feed anyone in the bridal suite. 3. Salad was supposed to be preset on the table and it was not. We the bride & groom did not get any, but got entree 4. Mr. Enzo DiGraci promised 4 bars for the reception we only had 2, 5. The tables were supposed to be round tables for my center pieces to look better but I got oval tables instead.6. I was promised wait staff to serve drinks at the table, DID NOT GET THAT AT ALL7. Bar ran out of Top shelf liquor at 12 midnight and we paid $3,500 extra for 1 hour and with bars to be fully stocked and was not.
** NOTE when we booked the event we said to have ample amount of liquor because our families and friends are good for partying
8. Wait staff and bartenders are very rude and uneducated. I know this may be a job for them but this is my profession. 9. Not enough food for the cocktail hour and glasses and serving silverware 10. Some of the guest??s food was very cold and not even cooked properly for dinner11. Salmon needed to be more flavorful. 12. I was also promised my event would only be the ONLY event at that time but was there was also another event going on. 13. Red carpet was taken away by a few raindrops which is unacceptable.
14. The air conditioner was turn off after we walked in. (my self who did not even dance that much was sweating in my wedding dresses) 15. Dessert was supposed to be brought out after we had thrown the bouquet and garter. 16. When we spoke to Enzo about rehearsal from my bridal party he told me the Tuesday before my wedding was available. To get there that Tuesday that there are 2 events happening. My bridal party made arrangements to leave work and other daily responsible for my wedding to be screwed over no alternated rehearsal. 17. The receptionist is very rude and did want to give your name and only gave your first name. 18. There was a photographer taking picture of my family and charging them without my permission.
The 2 issues with the sound engineer is that the monitor was not set in timely manner only after Andrew spoke to Mr. Moses Sandel he then fixed the problem. Second, issue was that 2 of 4 bass bottoms were hooked up to play, after a phone conversation with him. After Andrew spoke to Moses before we walked in it still was not hooked up.

If you planning to have something there, make sure to call a taxi in advance, there are not a lot of taxis outside when you done parting.
They have two floors, I really liked the lower one.

Pros: variety of food, the place itself

I was going to book my wedding there, after hearing great things about it. The place is beautiful, but it stops there. The staff and ONE of the event coordinators were so rude and disrespectful. The food is not that great and I get better service at McDonalds. My experience wasn't great at all. Red carpet and all the other services are great. If you want a nice place and don't care about customer satisfaction or food, this place would be good. If you like quality, then you would do what I did....RUN!

My son's wedding at Elite Palace was beautiful. The food was not to be believed (and we went to a lot of tastings before we booked) and the service was tremendous. When we booked the hall, we were promised that we would have a stress free event, and we did. The manager and his staff were on top of everything that day, and e were able to focus our attention on the most important day in our life.

This place is highly recommended.

My wife and I got married at the Elite Palace. We visited quite a few places, but none equaled the elegance of the Elite Palace. The catering Halls?? rooms were magnificent and the food was exquisitely prepared, as well as delicious. The staff was wonderful to all.

Went for a wedding, very impressed with appearance of hall unfortunately that's where it ends. The staff was rude, direction was nil, the food was all cold, cocktail hour and dinner, (husband and I both sick that night)coffee or tea was not served. There was only one bar set up, in the back in the dark, and when the server took a break you just had to wait. Look elsewhere to have your special occasion.

Sham718, dont book wedding there Its the most horrible place i have ever been too, Let me first start by haveing evreyone know Iam a chef and Ive been in the catering industry for over 10 years. Food food food,is not this place first priority. Cocktail hour was Horrible. Food that should of been Hot was Cold and food that should of been cold was warm, Lets just say there was alot of food bourne illness in that room. They also had pass orderveus when i ask the waiter how this crabcake was made. He told me out of the box into the fryer. There was not one cocktail waitress on the floor, Everytime you wanted a drink wait on the large line. Bartenders are very unproffesional open shirts, rudeness, using hands to put ice in glass,. As you approach large room, notice staff in hallways on phones, calling texting you name it. BE ready to hear alot of drama, I say this, as i was sitting down haveing the most dryest, hardest pasta i have ever had in my life the waiters were talking about there personal life right next to me. No wine on tables, No parmesan cheese on tables, Not even a pitcher, of water. Dinner was horrible I order filet migon, I said i would like it medium,waiter let me know its all well done. As dinner came out, i got no filet migon i got 2 slices of roast beef, with a salty gravy. And this i could not believe instant potatoes, there was a round snowball of this gluey white stuff. I could go on and on all day about this place. this place sucks, it sucks it sucks it sucks, As the night went ononon and the list of complaints grew, it was about 12:30am the wedding wasnt over till one, Staff was breakingdown tables moving chairs. taking linen off tables. Letting guess know its time to go kicking us out. I let manager know this was very unprofessional guest were still in room> He just walked away from me. Please do not have wedding here. dont have anything here.

Haven't booked a place yet but got a bad feeling from the start from the lack of interest the banquet manager Enzo showed in is. Seemed to want to get rid of us pretty quick and we had to ask to be shown specific rooms and ask specific questions about what was offered for a wedding package. Don't be too fooled by the exterior beauty of the place...looks can be deceiving. Tread with caution!

Elite Palace is an exquisite catering hall equipped with state of the art lighting, marble floors, etc. However, this place lacks management.

Disregard this review if you are having a kosher event because they will treat you like royalty and most importantly, you will not have to deal with the manager who handles all non-kosher events.

The manager who handles all non-kosher events is Enzo Di Graci, is by far a horrible manager. Instead of managing his staff (which was gone for most of the party) he was no where to be found. Ironically, he was at the catering hall the day of the party to make sure "things ran smooth". I don't know why he is employed at this establishment as a manager, he lacks all characteristics of what makes a good manager. The business suit he wears on a daily basis is just to throw potential clients off and make them think he is on top of things. Every aspect of the party I attended was unorganized.

If you want your night to run smooth please do not waste your money on this place. For the amount of money they demand, the service or lack thereof was not up to par not to mention the numerous violations from the Health Department. You are better off throwing your party or wedding in a well-established catering hall not Elite Palace.

Pros: Nice venue

Cons: Horrible service & managment

This place is horrible! I was booked their for my Oct 2010 wedding and was soon turned off by the attitude of the manager Enzo Di Graci. In addition to the citations from the health department and the pompus attitude of the staff this place refused to give me my deposit back event hough the contract states that im entitled to it back. Do not book with this place they are a bunch of crooks!

I was here for my best friends wedding. The Space was beautiful, high ceilings, and everything. The cocktail hour was great, the stations were perfect for everyones needs. We are kosher and they accomodated us and more. The waiters and waitress's were friendly and made suggestions on what to order. The is a great venue for a wedding or a any event. I am not sure what the person is talking about with food violations

Pros: Great Staff, Great food

.

I have been to many weddings in Queens/Long Island area and this place is the worst by far. I don't know who wrote the positive reviews, they must work there or own the place...here is just a few examples

-A friend of mine goes to order his first drink during cocktail hour and orders a drink with premium liquor and the bartender rudely tells him not to expect to drink premium liquor all night

-45 minutes after cocktail hour starts the bar "runs out" of beer, and thats after only having one type of cheap american beer on hand and most people drinking mixed drinks.

-I was served a piece of fat that they pass as a steak, my wife's fish was raw and under cooked. Also, they didnt serve salad with "dinner".

-My wife asks for a glass of water from a waiter,he tells her to go get it herself from the bar.

- One bartender for 160 people who was not even at their station for half the time, but missing somewhere

These are just some examples, im sure other people at this wedding have similar stories, and to top it off, this place has been open for less then 2 years and has already been closed down for health code violations. At a 3/2010 inspection they got over 90 health code violation points and they are allowed 27 to pass and were closed down!!!! Go and look this up at the NYC health departments web site.
CONCLUSION:
HORRIBLE FOOD AND SERVICE, RUDE STAFF, STAY AWAY FROM THIS PLACE

Pros: Brand New, Modern design & fantastic menu

.

This place never gives me the fairy tale wedding type of vibe. I mean it is located in the middle of a live neighborhood with no front yard or backyard. It is simply a huge building that looks like a Las Vegas hotel at nights. In addition, there are several points already in this place released by the FDA due to a pesticide (rats and roaches) in the kitchen. Finally, my friends dragged me there on New Year's Eve and not only was it boring and the food was absolutely discusting, but the owner's son was walking around indoors and smoking cigaretts all over the place. Was it so hard to go outside??? That just shows how disrespectful and unprofessional even the owner's family is to this restaurant. Would anyone really want to have their wedding at such an ignorant place???

From the second I booked my wedding until the day of, Elite Palace offered nothing but the best of customer service. I had every demand met above and beyond... I would highly recommend this venue to anyone looking to have their dream wedding!
