Dear Gayle, Russell and Team,




Thank you for being a pleasure to work with. Thank you for providing staff that were attentive and friendly. Thank you for a beautifully set up room that was both elegant and inviting. Thank you for the absolutely scrumptious food that our guests are still talking about months later. Thank you for creating an atmosphere with all the class and sophistication of a formal affair and all the warmth of a casual get-together. 


Thank you for partnering with us to create a meaningful and beautiful Bat Mitzvah experience that our daughter, our friends and our family will always remember.


Thank you for being a part of our simcha!

Dear Gayle and Bob,


We want to thank you for helping to create one of the most memorable moments of our life! Your outstanding professionalism helped to create an affair that exceeded our expectations in every way. 


Your staff, Russ, Roz, Martin and all of the wait staff were wonderful- responsive, professional and essential in the orchestration of our event. Also, Gayle, thanks so much for accommodating my requests, it was noted and appreciated. And, did I mention how delicious the food was??? Rave reviews all around, and my son is still asking if I have any leftover sushi!!! Ok, obviously, I could go on and on, so let's just let me just say...WELL DONE and be done.


Here is the review that we posted on the Mazal Moments website. Please feel free to use it as you see fit:


Our daughter was married at Temple Beth El of Cedarhurst last Saturday. If you are searching for a venue that offers kosher catering, delicious food, outstanding service, a classically beautiful sanctuary and reception space, and outstanding value, LOOK NO FURTHER! Seaview Caterers, owned by Gayle and Bob Wilk, is a gem. Don't pass this venue by before make any decision about a kosher wedding!!!


Many Thanks,

Joan Greenberg and Phil Klein

Dear Gayle and Russ,


We wanted to write and thank you both so much for facilitating our children’s wonderful wedding. It was such a pleasure to work with both of you and we know the Nidam’s feel the same way.


As you know, we had never made a wedding before, and we were quite unaware of what was necessary. When our kids decided that they loved the Beth-El venue, we were so happy. We knew that Beth-El has a reputation for doing beautiful affairs and the handful of simchas that we attended there were spectacular. 


But our expectations were exceeded every step of the way. Every request we had was met with “Of Course” and in a timely manner. You were helpful and reassuring and really put us at ease throughout the entire process. You went the extra mile for us and everyone at the wedding was impressed by the attention to detail. The food, the service, the ambiance was beyond compare. And most importantly, the chosen and kallah were thrilled with everything. We cannot thank you enough for your pleasant manner and the amazing event you orchestrated for us.


We would happily recommend you to all our friends.

I've had this saved since last week and forgot to send it. It's been almost 2 weeks and we are still flying high. We've been looking at pictures and video and just trying to relive it over and over.


Here is a little something for the website. It's all from the heart... because it truly was a perfect day!!! 


We just had our daughters wedding at Temple Beth El in Cedarhurst, NY and it was everything we hoped for and more. From the start, the attention was A-1. We couldn't have been happier with our choice.


Throughout the planning process we worked with Russell, our Maitre D, and we cannot say enough about how professional, thoughtful and organized he and the staff at Beth El were. Everyone was always available to us to answer questions and concerns.


Russell was always one step ahead of everything. We arrived at 8 am and he was already there with snacks and light drinks all set up for us. Everything from the food, to the decorations ran smoothly thanks to him. It made the day so stress free. Our guests raved about the service and how beautiful the venue was.


Roz, the bridal attendant was beyond anything we could have expected. She took care of the bride, the groom, the parents... She took care of the cake topper, the kiddsh cup... there wasn't anything this amazing woman didn’t do. She organized EVERYTHING. Kept everyone calm. She made sure we packed everything. She had a fanny pack that she carried with her with everything that we could possibly need at her fingertips.


Everything was above and beyond our expectations. Our guests were in awe of the cocktail hour, about the variety of the food, presentation and overall the TASTE. We're still getting calls from family and friends saying what an amazing time they had.


Thank you to the entire staff at Beth El. We are grateful to everyone for making our special day the best day of our lives and for making it so memorable!
