This place was built stupidly. Anyone making a wedding here has to have a one-man-band, as there is NO room for even a five-piece band to set up. The acoustics are so-so. If you have a guest in a wheelchair: good luck getting over the "cut out". The sidewalk is higher than normal (I guess for the "elegant" stone curb), and the cut out has a step that requires a lot of work to get over with wheels. The bathrooms are located in decidedly inconvenient places for anyone who has to, you know, GO, and their layout is weird, too. In the mens room (I didn't go to the ladies room, you understand), there are separate rooms for stalls and urinals, so if you you're in a rush (exacerbated by the long walk), and you go into the wrong room = FRUSTRATION. There IS ample parking, and the air conditioning was blasting, which was nice. The food was also very good. I found the shmorg to be very lacking, just a few salads and some platters of cold cuts and some cake; no hot dishes of any kind. Even the cake was lacking: just some weird bread-looking cakes (not even the "traditional" sponge and marble cakes). There was a platter of gefilte fish on the chosson's "tisch"...I guess that was the "token" fish platter. The rest of the meal was very good, if a little standard. Overall: NOT recommended unless there are NO other choices available.

I live in Lakewood and find this new hall very nice. The food is contingent upon the people making the simcha. I have seen some crazy beautiful dishes that Dalgar has produced. They are very creative. I remember arriving early to a wedding once at Toras Aaron and the caterer brought out chips and dips for the family taking portraits. Way before the smorg began. The guacamole looked amazing. Keep up the great work. By the way all the water is better than spring water. Dalgar set up a huge reverse osmosis system to purify all the water served to the guests. In 20 years of working at wedding halls, I have never seen a thing.

Just got home from my sister's chasuna at Ateres Reva. Wow. The presentation was stunning, service right on. Decor fabulous. Parking is more than sufficient. The menu was elegant and the food was really good. Not like most caterers where it all looks good but with no taste. They must have a french baker on staff as the pastries are out of this world. I highly reccomend going there for a chasuna.
