Thank you for considering The River Club for your next event. Below are testimonials from others who have hosted their special day with us.
"We had our rehearsal dinner at the River Club (our wedding was at their sister property, Epping Forest). The planning process was a breeze. The views were stunning, the food was great, and the staff was kind and attentive. I was surprised by how long we were able to stay at the venue after dinner, for some reason I was thinking we would have dinner and go but they let us stay and kept the bar open, which was great!"
- Bride, Rehearsal Dinner
"Thank you for the outstanding effort by the Catering Team and all of the River Club staff. Your ability to get things rolling earlier than planned was greatly appreciated. The food was spectacular and delicious (I’m still getting messages from folks raving about all the food but especially the steak and crab cakes) and every member of the staff was friendly and professional. Of course, the view of Jacksonville from the 35th floor was breathtaking. I’ll apologize now if you have to clean all the windows again because nearly everyone, at one time or another throughout the evening, had their hands and/or noses on the windows just taking in the view :-). Thanks too for the impromptu fireworks display that occurred below in front of the Landing just as people were leaving for the evening. I know you didn’t plan it but we are giving you credit anyway :-). Thank you again for making a very special evening even more memorable."
- Father of the Groom, Rehearsal Dinner
"The River Club was such a wonderful venue for our wedding. It is a beautiful venue/location with the best staff. The coordinators were amazing to work with and made the process of planning easy and the wedding fun! I wasn't worried about anything going wrong because the whole staff is so professional. The food was also wonderful. All our guests are still raving about our wedding thanks to all the great people who made the day perfect. My husband and I couldn't have asked for a better or more memorable day!"
- Leah O., Bride, Wedding Reception
"The River Club was AMAZING! I can't say enough good things about them. It was stress free the entire time and they bent over backwards with anything we asked. Our coordinator was by far the greatest at keeping things calm and on track. I would highly recommend the River Club to any bride who wants an amazing wedding experience as well as a breathtaking view!!!"
- Melissa C., Bride, Wedding Reception
"Our rehearsal dinner was everything we could have wanted. The food was delicious, everyone got exactly what they had asked for, and the service was great. The tasting experience was even better than the tasting we had at our actual wedding venue! Not only was the view amazing, but they truly made you feel like you were important. And they gave us more than enough food to make our decision, which was awesome. They were amazing at communicating and answering all our questions. Thank you all!"
- Mariah B., Bride, Rehearsal Dinner
"My now husband and I selected The River Club as our rehearsal dinner venue. We searched for a venue with a formal dinner setting yet a unique atmosphere. The River Club exceeded our expectations and the Catering Team effortlessly organized the event despite the long distance communication. All we had to do was bring in the cake and centerpieces, every other detail was put into place for us. We accidentally scheduled our wedding on the weekend of a HUGE football game... FSU vs. Bama! The River Club provided us with a special room for the game to be viewed after our event. We can't say enough wonderful things about this venue!"
- Alley T., Bride, Rehearsal Dinner
"We're both extremely pleased with how our rehearsal dinner at The River Club turned out. The views are unparalleled in downtown, and so our sunset-timed event benefited from a gorgeous backdrop. Service was anticipatory and professional; our food choices for the buffet were uniformly excellent, and the selection of desserts was varied and tasty. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend the River Club, and look forward to future opportunities to host events there."
- Casey A., Groom, Rehearsal Dinner
"We were beyond ecstatic at how professional and accommodating the River Club was during our special day! Our wedding reception was scheduled just under three weeks after hurricane Irma hit Jacksonville and the River Club closed due to water damage. My hubby and I were stressing because over 90 percent of wedding guest and party were out of town and invitations with directions were already sent. We received a call from the Director of the River Club 1 week and a half before our wedding stating they are reopening after the hurricane and valet parking would be available for free for our guest. I was so excited I cried tears of relief! Thanks to all staff of the River Club our wedding reception was all we dreamed and more. Our guest raved about the food, crab cakes especially and sea bass. The view was breathtaking for out of town guest from all over the U.S. I highly recommend the River Club for a dream come true wedding and reception. Would give 10 stars if I could on here."
- Isreal W., Bride, Wedding Reception
"The River Club was a wonderful place to have our rehearsal dinner. They were attentive and paid attention to detail. They went above and beyond to make sure it was exactly what we wanted. The food was amazing and the view is stunning. I look forward to having more events at the river club in the near future!"
- Lauren H., Bride, Rehearsal Dinner
"Our wedding ceremony and reception was held at The River Club. The venue itself is breathtaking, but the food and the service... absolutely amazing! The entire staff, Allison C., in particular was responsive, professional, and courtesy and took care of everything. We were able to truly enjoy our day; there was nothing to stress over because The River Club ensured everything was covered. Their concern for the small details and pride in their work was evident. Small details we didn't think of or ask for was already taken care of and added to enhancement of the evening. Our guests continue to compliment our wedding day; the details, the decor, the service. The River Club made the day better than we could have imagined."
- Chanda R., Bride, Wedding Reception
"We hosted our rehearsal dinner at the River Club in March, and it was a phenomenal experience. My mom (mother of the groom) and I (sister of the groom) planned the dinner with the help of the Catering Team at the RC. We don’t live in Jacksonville so we were a bit worried about planning this from afar, but everything was smooth sailing—they know what they’re doing for sure. We had some special requests around the timing of the evening and the dietary requirements (vegan, kosher, GF options), and it was no problem for the RC. Our Catering Manager set up a wonderful tasting for us, and at the event the food was well-timed and presented beautifully, not to mention delicious. We played a video after dinner, and everything worked perfectly. Wedding events are tough, because you’re working with multiple families/family members and everyone has an opinion, but the RC staff did a wonderful job of getting to know us and making the event exactly what we dreamed it could be with minimal drama. Our family and friends are still talking about what a wonderful, thoughtful, celebratory evening this was. We’re grateful to the River Club and their 5-star service and setting for helping us plan a great rehearsal dinner, and we’d recommend them to others looking for a classy, hassle-free event."
- Elizabeth M., Sister of Groom, Rehearsal Dinner
"The Wedding was Beautiful (as I expected) and the Reception hosted at The River Club was lovely! As always, your staff was on top of it and could not have been more accommodating to any need. Whenever we recommend The River Club, we are assured of a First Class event! Thank you for all you do to make these things happen."
- AG, Bride, Wedding Reception
"We had a AMAZING experience at The River Club for our rehearsal dinner. Everything was as planned and the staff are just as wonderful! Highly recommend."
- Laine, Bride, Rehearsal Dinner
"The River Club was the most picturesque place to hold my Rehearsal Dinner in late June. The breathtaking backdrop of Jacksonville made my guests gasp and the food & drinks were to-die-for. Linda Henry held my hand from start to finish and made sure that every single detail was perfect. I highly recommend for any event!"
- Grier, Bride, Rehearsal Dinner
"It was a pleasure to work with you on this special event. I know Erin was extremely pleased as were we. All of the guests were impress by the facility, the service and the delicious dinner.
