I think I can speak for our team to say what an amazing event last Thursday was! The venue was perfect, the food and drinks were delicious, and you and your staff were wonderful and pleasure to work with. Thank you for making this event such a success!
We hope to work with you again soon!
The Maritime Aquarium Event staff turned our wedding dreams into a reality! They made sure all our decorations were beautifully placed, made sure we had everything we needed to feel confident and assuage our fears. The staff were so attentive to our needs, making sure we had drinks and food! You could also really tell that the staff genuinely cares about the well being of the animals for whom the aquarium is home.
Just as we thought, the Maritime Aquarium gave us the best wedding experience we could have possibly had! The venue was incredible for photography and our guests absolutely loved the experience; many of our guests have reached out after the event to tell us that it was the most fun they’ve ever had at a wedding, and we believe them!
We plan to wholeheartedly recommend a wedding at the Norwalk Aquarium to anyone who loves the sea and the creatures who live in it!
Thank you again for helping us celebrate the start of our life together. We couldn’t have picked a better host!
Thank you so much for all of your hard work to make our banquet extra-ordinary! Everyone has had amazing things to say about the vent and the food was delicious!
We thank you so much for a great party. You are truly amazing at what you do
We just wanted to thank you for all of your help in planning and executing the party at the aquarium for Ellie’s bat mitzvah.
Our guests couldn’t stop raving about the service, the food, and the venue; and the party exceeded even our highest expectations. My daughter was absolutely glowing with joy.
It was fantastic!!! Thank you to you and your team for being amazing.
Thank you again for a great event. Your team are pros! We really enjoyed being in the space.
Thank you again for all of the work you did for our holiday party. Our employees were so impressed with the location, the food and the service. You and your team were absolutely phenomenal! You are a master of your craft and a true pleasure to work with. I look forward to working with you again in the near future.
Everyone loved the event. The whole atmosphere was festive and fun. The snow was a HUGE hit with everyone. Thanks so much for all your hard work on our behalf!
A huge thank you from the bottom of my heart for all the effort your staff and you put in to our anniversary party last night. The décor, food and service all surpassed our expectations! You do your job well and have a wonderfully talented group working for you. I wasn’t joking when I said we would be back for our next big anniversary!
We wanted to express our gratitude to you and your team at Philip Stone Caterers, for helping us throw one of the most memorable, fun and endearing nights in our lives. Sammy’s Bar-Mitzvah was a huge success and all of our guests commented on how great the venue and your team were. You guys were so unbelievable from start to finish. We know there are at times many cooks in the kitchen between our invited guests and other vendors and Catherine was so gracious and patient all the way through, how you maintain your calm, we can all learn from.
We have been to many catered events, but nothing beat what your chefs have cooked up for us at our event. Wow!! Please express our thanks to your crew from all of us at the Lax family. My favorite though was when Catherine came up to me and we had a chance to dance and be merry.
Thanks again for everything last night! The event went off without a hitch and everyone was very gracious of the space and presentation. Your facility and people were great to work with. I hope to work with you again soon. Thanks again!!
I can’t thank you enough for producing such any amazing evening for us! The dinner was a big hit – can’t even count how many texts I received the next morning from guests telling me how much they enjoyed themselves. I loved the ambiance of mingling among the fish tanks during cocktail hour. The food stations were excellent, and everyone raved about the dessert “parade.” It was a magical evening that we will remember forever. It was a pleasure working with you. Only wish I had another event to plan at the Aquarium.
You handled everything like a seasoned pro and with a smile on your face. Thank you for EVERYTHING!! It was the most hands-off I’ve ever been for an event I cared so much about, and that was because of the confidence you instilled – starting on day one.
The kids and faculty alike had a fantastic time at the prom. Many said it was the best one yet! I can’t thank you enough for making the planning process so easy and – dare I say – FUN! : ) The energy you and your staff bring to this occasion plays a significant role in the success of the evening. We can’t wait for next year!

All the guests have commented on the unique venue, delicious food and efficient & courteous wait staff. Everyone had a blast!
You all made it so we didn’t have to worry about a thing. I received a ton of compliments on the venue, the room set up, the attentive staff and the wonderful food.
The birthday celebration far exceeded my expectations. My guests are still talking about how beautiful the venue was and how spectacular the food was. We will definitely be using you again.
The people at the wedding are still talking about it as the best wedding they ever attended. I would not have picked anything differently if I could have.
I am so happy we had the wedding at the Maritime Aquarium. The wedding was truly one of the best weddings I have ever attended. The food (Philip Stone Caterers)was fantastic and so was the service, not to mention how fun the venue was in general. It was a perfect day and I would highly recommend this venue to any couple looking for a great location to have their wedding.
Such an amazingly fun wedding for me and my groom, as well as the guest! I mean, seals on the dance floor…need I say more??
Uncomparable! Our guests all raved about the service, the waitstaff, the venue and the food. Philip Stone’s staff was incredible. I heard from many of our guests that it was the best wedding they’ve ever been to.
