have a friend who is debating between the two venues, Harvard Club Main (Ballroom) and State Room (Harborside Salon) for her wedding and was wondering what the preferences are among people who considered these venues? please share your thoughts on the quality of food, service, ambiance. (costs not a factor)
(Not considering harvard club downtown because would prefer state room if going with the downtown location)

I have only been to harvard club downtown so cannot comment on the ballroom however, my company has had the holiday party at the state room and it is absolutely lovely. the food was very good and the view is really nice.

The Harvard Club Ballroom is beautiful and looks gorgeous with uplighting. The food was really good, and I ate a vendor meal! Plus, the event coordinator there is fantastic as well.

I just had my wedding at the State Room and it was amazing.
We have not stopped receiving compliments about the food and level of service there- it truly is beyond amazing. They are worth every single penny.
The SR is an event planning company as well as a “venue” and they put on seriously the best events in Boston.
We had cocktail hour in the cityside room and the reception in the Harborside rooms and the view was unbelievable. The staff told my parents the Harborside is their favorite room because of the view.
The food was absolutely superb. Everyone was raving about it at the wedding and we are still hearing about it. The level of service for planning the wedding was incredible and the night of- we didn’t worry about a single detail- it was all executed perfectly.
Feel free to PM if you have any questions!!

I had my wedding at the Harvard Club, and I would not recommend it!
It is a gorgeous venue, and I think the ambiance is lovely. However, our coordinator really dropped the ball with things, and if I had known what I know now about how they treat their staff, I would definitely not consider them. Feel free to PM if you have questions, but your friend should definitely go with the State Room. 🙂

I was at a wedding about 7 years ago at the Harvard Club. Wonderful food. A bit small on cocktail space I recall (and could have done with another bartender). Wood paneling gave it a very dark ambience, so consider ways to lighten it up.
