We absolutely loved everything about our wedding day at Belvedere Events and Banquets. Lorna was our event coordinator and she made sure every request we had was met and that everything ran smoothly the day of. It was beyond our expectations. We got compliments on every little detail from the decor and beautiful staircases, to the food (especially the roasted salmon) and the service of the staff. Friends said it was the best wedding they had ever been to. It was truly a dream come true!

Me and my husband booked the belvedere for our wedding this past weekend and before we did I obviously read all reviews and ultimately we decided to check it out. I have to say, it was so elegant and modern , I fell in love with the place. My coordinator was Orla , she was so friendly, and accommodating , and oh so professional. She really knows what she's doing!!! As a matter of fact every single staff member was so attentive and happy. The food was outstanding, everyone kept complimenting us. We had the turkey medallions with the creamy potato tart ( OMG!!! ) They set up so beautifully , it was truly our dream wedding. We are so glad we booked at the belvedere , it was worth every penny . I highly recommend this place ,it won't disappoint!!!

We loved working with Orla and her team! They worked with us and were very accommodating. We were only in town one weekend, and they were able to fit us in for our tasting that weekend, (we planned our wedding in Illinois while living in Texas). The food was wonderful the day of the event. We also had the dessert table, and our guests raved about all of the food and the desserts! Our guests loved the entire setup of this venue! It is wonderful the way it is connected to the hotel, so no one has to drive. There is also a sports bar next door to the hotel, so again, you can go out after the wedding and no one has to drive. Everyone is able to thoroughly enjoy themselves! There is even a pool in the hotel next door, so some of our guests had their older children stay at the hotel while they celebrated with us at the wedding! It was a wonderful evening! Orla was the best! She checked on us and our parents all evening to make sure we had everything we needed. She made sure our guests with special meal restrictions were well cared for and that we knew they were taken care of too. I would absolutely recommend this venue to anyone! Our friends and family raved about it!

Our wedding was absolutely perfect thanks to Caroline! The amount of compliments we have gotten on service, the food and the decor of the venue are endless and I couldn't agree more! I felt like people were able to enjoy themselves longer on the dance floor due to the service being so efficient! Dinner wasn't hours long which we loved! We couldn't have chosen a better a venue! The servers were so personable and they even laughed with us and made jokes! We felt so comfortable there from the moment we walked in to the moment we walked out the day after our wedding! Thank you again for making our special day so amazing! We couldn't have done it with you!!

The wedding reception was outstanding - from the beautiful Belvedere decor, to all the pre-planning discussions, through the excellent, tasty, gourmet appetizers and entire meal, to the beautiful, yummy cake and gelato.

The guidance provided by the wedding coordinator throughout the entire planning process gave us confidence that the day would turn out as special as we all had hoped. Everyone on the Belvedere staff that I talked to was professional, pleasant and helpful.

Compliments to the chef on outstanding, deliciously prepared food! I can't even tell you how many guests came up to us that evening raving about the food. They loved the appetizers. They loved the soup. They LOVED the filet preparation. They loved the potatoes. They loved the vegetables. They kept saying they couldn't BELIEVE the meal they were served. It was obvious to us that most receptions people have attended in the past have NEVER matched the high standards of The Belvedere's. My girlfriend told me that her one regret was that she didn't have a baggy in her purse so she could take the remainder of her steak home. Ha ha! We are extremely grateful that The Belvedere is so accommodating about cooking food to guests' preferences. My cousin had a vegetarian meal and she simply raved about it. She told me that it's been her experience that large venues cannot offer a delicious vegetarian meal, however, she's completely impressed with the food she experienced at The Belvedere. Everyone's food was piping hot when served. To me, that's amazing for the number of guests served.

Compliments to the wait staff. Everyone was courteous, prompt, inconspicuous, efficient, helpful and just totally nice. They were all very helpful at the end of the evening when we were all packing things up to leave.

Compliments to the bartenders. Our daughter and son-in-law wanted a reception venue with a large bar area. The bartenders were professional, courteous, and fast.

We worked with Lorna and everything went very smoothly over the year of planning. She is very easy going and helped me with tough decisions. The night of the wedding she was there to get everyone in order and helped whenever anyone was confused with where to go or what to do. We were able to get a room for the reception that we never dreamed we could get and it all turned out beautiful. There was some miscommunication on our end regarding who would be cleaning up everything at the end of the night and one of the amazing people there helped pack everything up without any complaint.

The venue is gorgeous and so many people commented that they just expected a normal banquet hall but were pleasantly surprised at how gorgeous the space is all on its own.
The food was great (especially the tomato soup).

From beginning to end Lorna and everyone there made the process very smooth especially for someone who had no idea how to even start planning a wedding!

We had our weddiing 9/1/12 (I know im a little late on this review, better late than never)
The belvedere provided excellent service for my wedding. My coordinator was Carolyn and she was very attentive, she responded right away to every phone call and email. We were not her easiest clients and made some unbelievable requests and she make them all happen! The entire staff went above and beyond on my special day (like the security guard who helped me pin my ripped dress at the end of the night or the bartender who made me a special drink after the bar closed just because I hadnt had one yet). All of our guests were having such an amazing time we decided to extend the party an hour last minute with no problem. The food was excellent and our guest still complement us on the food and sweet table.

My husband and I had our wedding here on August 10, 2013 and throughout our whole planning process we worked with Lorna. Let me say this... Lorna was a lifesaver and the most amazing person to work with! She was so helpful, responsive, timely, knowledgeable, patient, easy going and most importantly understanding. Without Lorna and all of her help, our dream day would not have turned out quite like it did. All of our guests from our wedding are still raving about everything, especially the food and the venue itself. We could not be happier with how everything turned out all thanks to Lorna. Anyone who ever needs a fabulous hall and consultant, go to Belvedere and ask for Lorna... we promise you she will not disappoint!

The Belvedere was the first venue I saw and immedialty knew it would be the one I chose. The lobby is so modern and very appealing. The rooms are big and the bars are huge. I worked with Caroline and she followed up with us regularly and was very helpful with recommendations. She was willing to work with us on little details and the night of the wedding everything was just perfect! Every guest commented on how beautiful the atmosphere was and how great the food was!

The Belvedere was the first venue I saw and immedialty knew it would be the one I chose. The lobby is so modern and very appealing. The rooms are big and the bars are huge. I worked with Caroline and she followed up with us regularly and was very helpful with recommendations. She was willing to work with us on little details and the night of the wedding everything was just perfect! Every guest commented on how beautiful the atmosphere was and how great the food was! I had my reception on a Friday and it was very reasonably priced! I will and so recommend the Belvedere to everyone! Read less

I can not begin to express how amazing and wonderful our wedding reception was. The staff at the Belvedere went above and beyond our expectations and we couldn't have asked for a better place. Everything was set up and was executed perfectly. The food was AMAZING!!!! Everything that they did was outstanding. Anything I wanted they had done and with no questions.

Caroline was by far the most amazing person and I can not thank her enough for making our day perfect. I cant wait to tell all of my friends and family about the Belvedere.

I hope to be able to have other events/parties at the Belvedere and with Caroline.

The Belvedere was wonderful. A great value for what you get. The entire staff was very professional and very helpful. The foyer area is beautiful. There is a bridal suite located above the foyer area where the bridal party could go to relax, prep, clean-up etc. They had a staircase leading down from the suite into the reception hall which my wife absolutely loved. The set-up of the room was fantastic. All of the guest raved about the food and the overall set up of the reception hall. Overall, we were very very happy with the Belvedere and would recommend any and all friends and family to have a reception there.

Our ceremony & reception at the Belvedere was perfect. Jodi was our coordinator from day one and patiently answered all of our questions. Our wedding day went so smoothly that my husband and I were able to be guests at our own wedding. All of our guests loved the food, the bar selection, and that everything was all in the same place. We are so happy we selected the Belvedere for our ceremony and reception. We had the perfect day and wouldn't change anything.

About a year and a half ago I began looking at wedding venues. I knew of The Belvedere located in Elk Grove Village so I decided to go on their website. Instantly, I fell in love with the venue and I didn’t want to look anywhere else. I’m the type of person that knows what I want when I see it. Dave and I made an appointment to speak with an event coordinator, and I brought my Mom along as well because she knows all the right questions to ask. Our meeting went very well and I knew there would be no other place to look at. Dave wanted to check out a few more places to compare prices but, he soon realized my heart was set on The Belvedere and shortly after our visit, we signed a contract. We had two rooms, draping on the entire wall behind our sweetheart table, special linens (to match my color scheme), and chair covers with sash bows. I wanted a very classy and elegant wedding from my invitations down to the tables at my reception. During the planning process, I was in contact with my event coordinator, Cathy and she would update and make any necessary changes to our contract. She always answered my questions and helped me along the way, and wanted to make my day everything I wanted and more! When we went for our tasting, I was thoroughly impressed with the food, and couldn’t wait for the wedding date to get closer. We decided to have our ceremony here as well to make it easier on us and our guests; everything in one location was the best decision. The Belvedere was very accommodating to us, especially right before the wedding. The day of the wedding (before the ceremony) my girls and I took pictures in the beautiful lobby of The Belvedere as did the groom and his guys. The ceremony was beautiful with the stage, draping, candelabras, and lighting. Before cocktail hour my girls and I went into my bridal suite and we were greeted with Moscato, Champagne, and the three appetizers I chose for cocktail hour. I took the opportunity to go into my two rooms to see the set up of my tables and it took my breath away. My tables were gorgeous with the apple green linens and shimmer sheer overlays I chose, as were my ivory chair covers with the matching sashes of my table linens. My menus I made were wrapped into each napkin and the favors were laid out. When I went out to join cocktail hour, everyone seemed quite delighted and couldn’t get enough of the appetizers. Once the reception began, everything ran so smoothly. Dave and I enjoyed our sweetheart table and had the best vantage point. The dinner service was top notch. The courses came out perfectly; nobody had to wait a long time between courses or to be served in general. The food was hot and delectable, and the serves were right there when you needed them. Throughout the entire evening everyone complimented our dinner and venue. I had people tell me I’ve never had such a delicious meal at a wedding. All the little extras we had added to the ambiance of the night. The night was absolutely perfect and we could not have chosen a better venue and I’m glad I stuck to my gut. I’m so thankful to the entire staff of The Belvedere for making my night so magical; it truly was everything I wanted and more! If you’re looking for a venue that will make your night memorable beyond words then I HIGHLY recommend The Belvedere. If I had to do it all over again, I wouldn’t change a single thing!
All the best…

I used Belvedere Events & Banquets for our New Years Eve wedding. I began working with Caroline back in May when we were engaged & began the planning stages. I visited the venue and immediately fell in love with the whole feel & ambiance - it is very modern, clean and just absolutely lovely.

I planned our wedding from Washington DC so all of my correspondence with Caroline and the Belvedere was via email. She was always responsive to all requests, flexible & very easy to work with. I'm glad I can say it, because planning the wedding from far away was EASY with her!

The day before the wedding we took all of our reception items in, I explained how I would like everything to Caroline in about five minutes & went on the way. The evening of our reception, I was highly anticipating seeing our room and when I walked in, all I can say is it took my breath away, literally.

Absolutely what I imagined it would look like, it did, only better! From the table decor, head table set up, room staging & beyond, it was fantastic. The food was terrific, the staff superb, the lighting perfect, the white winter wonderland theme I dreamed up was executed PERFECTLY! I do have to give credit to Yanni Design Studio, who displayed our drapery and light background, which looked stunning with the whole theme.

There are not enough adjectives to describe the Belvedere, even their entrance foyer is beyond gorgeous, the Christmas decor was tasteful & lovely. I give this venue an A++ and would highly, highly recommend working with them for your wedding. In fact, we were already discussing having our 25th anniversary there :-) THANK YOU to the wonderful staff of the Belvedere, our wedding reception was perfection!

Do you know how you have a vision in your head? That is definitely me, once I walked in Belvedere Banquets I was like this is the place! We were pleased with the process from start to finish. Jodi and Orla made my day very special. The day of rehearsal we had rain and sleet and of course that made EVERYONE late but Orla was very patient and we were able to finish everything. I loved my ceremony and reception room, it was more than I ever would have expected. I would definitely recommend Belvedere Banquets to any of my clients!

My husband and I were completely satisfied with Belvedere Banquets. First of all, we received a 20% discount for having our reception in November. The wedding coordinators at Belvedere were extremely helpful and had answers to all of our questions. The meal at the reception was amazing. From the soup, to the salad, to the cake (which was included in the price). Everyone is still raving about the meal. The service during dinner was quick and the bar was well stocked. Also, the room we had our reception in was beautiful with a long staircase and huge picturesque windows. Overall, we were very satisfied.

Belvedere was great. We had our ceremony and reception there in July. Christina helped us sooo much! She has tons of creative ideas, cost cutting solutions, and patience for bridezillas like me! :-) The food and service was wonderful, the bathrooms were spotless, there was tons of parking, and the seperate entrances were a real plus! (We never saw or heard the other wedding) Also, they're prices are significantly less than their competition AND include more! Only two downsides are: 1) We booked in Sept 2009 and they only had like 5 dates available for 2010 and all Saturdays were booked until 2011.
2) The other sales women (unsure of her name, a little older/red headed) was very hard to work with. I felt like she couldn't answer my questions and it became very irritating. After speaking with her twice, I decided to ONLY meet with Christina from that point forward.
Overall, I would definitely recommend Belvedere to everyone!

I received so many compliments on the food the setting was beautiful. I also had a dessert table that had a large assortment of delicious treats. If I ever have a party again I will definately go there it made my wedding everything I wanted it to be.

My husband and I were married on April 4, 2009 and chose Belvedere for our reception venue. I can whole-heartedly say that not only was it the best day of my life, but that my room was the most beautiful I had ever seen for a wedding reception. Orla was our wedding coordinator and from the day we booked with her all the way through the reception she was extremely helpful and attentive to our every desire and detail. When I walked in the room before the reception started I think my heart skipped a beat and tears filled my eyes. The room was gorgeous. It was everything I could have ever dreamed it would be! I can't say enough good things about how wonderful Orla treated not only my groom and I, but my family as well. The food was amazing, the service was friendly, timely, and top-notch, and the drinks were plentiful. As for the food, MANY people have told us it was the best food they ever had at a wedding. Every time we needed something, Orla or another staff member was there to assist and on the flip side nobody was ever "bothering" us or pulling us away from our party. Every bride and groom should feel the way we did on our wedding night! A+ Belvedere.... a job VERY well done!

Their level of service was above and beyond any other venue I've been to! Even downtown!

It has been 2 years and our guests still tell my parents what an amazing wedding we had and how great the food was. The food was delicious, the service was great. I highly recommend the Belvedere for your special day you will be sure to have an amazing wedding. I loved it so much we went back for our Baby Shower this past June and it was amazing.

This reception site was perfect for our wedding. The coordinator I worked with at the Belvedere was welcoming to my constant questions, was able to incorporate ideas that I had (such as a specialty "blue" drink for all of our guests that tied in with the wedding colors), and went above and beyond our expectations. My mom and I had loved the way the main ballroom was decorated for a wedding before mine with tulle and twinkling lights hanging from the ceiling and draped around the railings, but we didn't think we'd be able to afford to have both of them with the budget we planned on. We decided to only do the railings, and I was thrilled when I walked into the ballroom on our wedding night to find that our coordinator had also had the tulle and lights hung from the ceiling as a surprise/wedding gift to us. Our food was amazing, the staff was accommodating and polite, and everything was perfect. I highly recommend Belvedere Banquets

Orla was our wedding coordinator and she was awesome! She helped us so much and gave us so many great ideas. We couldnt be happier with the service we received all around at Belvedere. The entire staff was so attentive and nice. We honestly had the best wedding here. I would recommend it to anyone, not only is it a beautiful place to get married but its very unique. It has a very modern look which is different from most banquet halls.The food was great too. The whole night was PERFECT, I wouldnt have changed a thing!!!! Thank you Belvedere!!!!!

Wow! This venue is amazing... my husband and I were glad we picked this place to host our wedding ceremony and reception. At the time of planning the wedding, I was in Canada, and had to send my husband to do most of the running around for the wedding. When he told me he chose Belvedere, we immediately had contact with our new wedding coordinator Orla, who was amazing. We couldn't have had the wedding go as smooth as it did without her. Even though I wasn't in the country and had to plan the wedding in 30 days, Orla was quick to respond through emails, phone calls, it was as if she never left her office! She was always trying to see if there was a way to make things easier for the bride.

On the day of the wedding, she was there throughout the whole process (even rehearsal the day before), helping my wedding party and I feel calm and keeping us on track. There was another man named Doro (I think) who was awesome and very helpful. My family kept commenting on how kind Orla and the staff were, and how good the food at the reception was!

My husband and I also had a reserved suite for the night of the wedding at the hotel beside the venue, which was also one of the perks of us booking our wedding package with Belvedere.

So I'll say, brides, book with this venue, the venue itself if beautiful (we didn't need much decoration because of it!) and I'm sure all of the wedding coordinators there are amazing, but if you can ask for Orla, ask for her!! She is awesome.

The Belvedere was FANTASTIC to work with!!! Orla was our wedding coordinator and was always quick to respond to any questions I had. She was also more than willing to accommodate any special requests (adding specific beer to the bar package, last minute additions of a sweet table). If there is anything that you want make sure to ask. From my experience it appears that they will do whatever they can to make it happen.

The food was GREAT! I received many compliments about how great the food was. And the venue itself is beautiful. I'm so happy with my choice!! I've received many many compliments about how beautiful it was.

The only reason I marked lower on professionalism was because of a last minute change. Through out the whole process Orla was our coordiantor. And Belvedere's policy is that your coordinator sees your event through the end (ie is there the day of). Orla happened to be a bridesmaid in a wedding the day of my own. She informed me about 2 weeks before my wedding. I was disappointed that she hadn't let me know sooner. But she introduced me to Jodi who was there the night of my wedding and would be available if I needed anything. Of course everything went off without a hitch so I didn't need to see her that night :)

If you choose The Belvedere they are contracted with 3 different bakeries, you choose. Make sure to pick The Baking Institute. I got more compliments on my cake than anything else. So many people told me it was the best wedding cake they ever had.

From the initial tour of the facility to the day of our wedding, Jodi from The Belvedere was extremely helpful and friendly. She was willing to work with us to make our wedding the most memorable day of our lives. The facility is absolutely beautiful and The Belvedere was extremely attentive to our needs the entire night. Our wedding was perfect. Our only suggestion would be to ask The Belvedere to put extra food and cake in their refrigerator for the night so you can pick it up the next day. Our food went bad because the tray they put it in didn't fit in our tiny hotel room fridge.

Extremely pleased! We selected Belvedere because of the extremely beautiful and elegant decor. None of the outdated gold gilded mirrors, floral carpets, or tacky "crystal" chandeliers here!!!! Sleek, modern, yet comfortably elegant!

We booked our wedding about 11 months in advance, on a Sunday and got one heck of a discount!!!! There is a hotel next door which was WONDERFUL! never had to even go outside, as a hallway adjoins the hotel and banquet hall.

They are all extremely friendly and SO accomodating! I was at the hall looking at things and asking questions several times throughout the planning process, and never once did any of them seem bothered by my presence.

Our co-ordinator was hard to get a hold of, and was seldom aorund when I had questions, but the other ladies there were always able to access my information and help me with everything I needed!

The food was great (though I didn't really eat that night) - again many of our guests had positive things to say about the menu. We worked with Jodi and she was very accommodating and easy to work with. The only complaint that I heard was there should be a bathroom on each side of the venue. There was our wedding (200+ people) and another wedding the same evening and it got a bit crowded in the lobby and bathroom area. Other than that, everything was absolutely perfect! Thank you for making our day wonderful!

I held my wedding and my reception at the Belvedere almost two weeks ago, and I am still getting comments from guests on the beautiful decor and the amazing food. When I first walked into the Belvedere for a preview, I was blown away at how beautiful and modern it was, without the standard "wedding hall" vibe. I was greeted by so many staff members, all eager to help with anything I needed. Cathy was my wedding coordinator, and she was always available to answer all of my questions and respond to any and all of my requests. She had great ideas in planning and setting up the hall and it looked amazing. The day of my wedding, our Pastor was 40 minutes late, pushing back our timeline of events. Cathy and the staff were flawless in making a backup plan, that turned out wonderful. Overall, my experience with this location was fabulous and I would highly recommend having any event here!

Belvedere did a beautiful job!! Everything was gorgeous and the food was great. We got tons of compliments on the steak (my parents - the pickiest diners in the world - said it was the best wedding steak they have ever had), the salad, & the ice cream bar. The chicken and veggie dish (what I got) were only okay. Belvedere was good at working with some of our unusual requests (family style pasta served in lieu of soup course). There was a mixup early on in our planning with Belvedere which made us pretty nervous, however they offered us plenty of compensation for the mixup and the night of the wedding everything was wonderful. The day-of-coordinator was so helpful!

When my husband and I started looking for venues for our wedding reception, the Belvedere was the first venue that we looked at and compared it to all other venues that we saw after that. We should have stopped looking right then and there. I fell in love with this venue from the moment that I walked in. I loved the contemporary and elegant look and feel to the Belvedere. I fell in love with the bridal suite and the purple couch in the lounge in the women's bathroom. The fountains in the lobby make for a great cocktail hour also. The food was fantastic. Our friends and family still complement us about the food that we had served at our wedding. The Belvedere was very accommodating with special needs diets such as Gluten Free meals too. We worked with Orla and she was fantastic. She made sure that everything went perfect for not only my husband and I but all of our guests too. If I could relive my wedding reception again, I would not have changed one thing about how our night went at the Belvedere.

I recommend this site to anyone getting married in the Chicagoland area.

Orla was very helpful and very flexible on all the different things we wanted to do.

The room was beautiful and everything turned out perfect.

The only bad thing was that we only had 3 special meals (2 gluten free and 1 vegetarian) and they messed all 3 up. Be sure to reiterate all the special meals to them because that was embarrassing.

All in all it was a great night and very affordable.

Belvedere Banquets do a good job updating you about price changes and/or time changes withing meal service pre-wedding. The banquet could hold up to 1000 people. We had a 550 wedding and we used the entire banquet, plenty of space. We recommend this place.

All in all, it was a beautiful reception and wonderful night. The lobby is gorgeous when the sun goes down and the fountain lights dance on the ceiling. We got a great deal since we had to choose either between 500 or 730 cocktail hour and the only available room left was the middle room. The middle room was a little squishy for our 175 guests, but it was not a problem and we never heard either of the other rooms unless you were in the lobby. The late night snack was delicious and hit the spot. I highly recommend the mini cheeseburgers and pizza.

Orla was great and friendly throughout the whole process. I thought she would stay the whole reception but ducked out early. It turned out not to be a problem though. I saw her there early in the morning and know she had a long day.

The location was fantastic. Loved being directly next door to the hotel. Worked out great for families with children who were able to put the kids to bed and come back down for a drink. The hotel receptionists only handed out hotel bags to some of our guests though. I think they forgot about the rest of the bags. Real Time Sports bar was a nice and close venue for a couple drinks for those of us not ready to call it a night yet.

Now for the minor issues I had. The chicken was great at the first tasting but just ok at the reception. We wanted a second tasting and they charged us for it! If we hadnt signed the contract already, Im sure they would have comped the second tasting. Appetizers didnt seem plentiful enough. The middle banquet room has space for 14 people at the head table. Unfortunately, we had 15 in our wedding party. It was a rather tight fit up there and trying to maneuver those heavy King and Queen chairs was difficult at times.

Like the the past reviews say, Belvedere's decor was beautiful, very modern and fun. There was no problem trying to get a hold of anybody. Our event coordinator was Jodi, and she was great during the planning process. She responded to my emails immediately, if not, the within the same day. Although we did have a few issues the day of the wedding.

The day before the wedding I went to drop off the favors and place cards. That's when I found out that Jodi would be out the office and someone else will be helping us. Now this wouldn't be a problem if somebody contacted me before to let me know, just some professional courtesy. But I was a pretty laid back bride and didn't think much of it. The next issue was the hors d'oeuvres. We had about 320 people at our reception and many people complained that the hors d'oeuvres weren't being served and some had to chase down servers just to get a few pieces. We brought this to the attention of the staff and still nothing was done. The same issue happened with the cake. A lot people mentioned they didn't receive any cake.

Now I'm not sure if the cake was too small (it was 5 tiers) or if the servers didn't get to everyone. When I brought this to Belvedere's attention the week after the wedding, i was pretty much told that the staff said everything went well, family seemed happy, and there were plenty of hors d'oeuvres left over (thats probably because they weren't served!). They also said that they understand that there's two sides to every story and offered a gift certificate (which i haven't received yet) for any inconvenience. Now we have been to weddings before at the Belvedere and the service was great.

We were just disappointed that we didn't get the same level of service. But like everyone else said, the food was awesome and the bartenders were the best, very professional, very courteous.

I would definitely recommend Belvedere. The food was wonderful and I have never seen service like this before at any wedding that I have been to. All the food came out at the same time to every table and the staff was especially attentive to the head table and the parents' tables...asking us if we needed anything and they would bring us drinks from the bar.

The only downside was prior to booking the event we were told that the rooms were sound proof. However, while we were having dinner and soft music was playing ... the party next door was playing extremely LOUD music that could be heard in our room. It was very distracting and put a little damper on the evening. However, the Belvedere staff tried their best to the the other room to lower the music.

I worked with Orla and I must say that she was fabulous!!! She was so helpful, responsive and nice!!! She gives excellent customer service. My one BIG COMPLAINT was that my husband and I had both the ceremony and reception on site in different rooms. When the Pastor was giving his opening words, the Best Man had to jump off stage because there were LOUD noises of people talking, yelling and pots and pans banging coming from behind our draping. It was terrible...apparently no one was paying attention that there was a cermony going on. I also think they schedule event too close together! I was mortified!

The Belvedere was fantastic. Very pricey but the food was excellent and we received many comments that it was the best wedding food guests had ever had. The building is beautiful, modern and fun. It was the perfect setting for our reception. I also wish I would have had a more attentive coordinator. Mine was very preoccupied throughout our planning process and we were typically handed off to someone else when we needed help. It would have been nice to work with one person so that they could truly understand our needs.

This place is a very nice reception hall, very modern and fun. The food was good. The staff was hit or miss. Some were really nice and helpful and the others a little snotty. One manager gave a little attitude with my DJ about his setup which I didn't appreciate. There was a mishap with a missing Groom's cake that they did a decent job of taking care of.

Beautiful venue but Orla was frustrating to work with. I didn't feel like she wanted to help us out - more like I had to really push to get any flexibility from the hall. Throughout the planning process, I would typically follow up with her rather than her keeping me updated. Day of: Orla wasn't very attentive to the couples needs and didn't follow the floor plan we had desired, however when something at the hall was damaged they were quick to bring that to our attention. Overall not a horrible service but not ideal either.

I had a couple of bad experiences with the Belvedere. From the reviews that I have read, I think it depends on who you get as a coordinator. Unfortunately Orla was assigned to me and was bad at responding to my questions, she made some significant mistakes, and I finally had to speak with a manager, who was eventually appointed to me as my coordinator. Unfortunately she was not much better. On the day of my wedding, my chair cover color was wrong and she was absolutely rude to me in front of my bridesmaids and basically told me with the most mean and rude face "sorry you signed off on it". I wish that I would have gotten Stacey, she only was there to help me the day before my wedding when I went to set up and she provided me with the service in that one day, that I had been wanting all along. She was nice, friendly, and super helpful.
Overall the quality of the service on the DAY OF THE WEDDING was great. My guest said that the bartenders were great. The servers were great. The food was amazing, and I particularly loved that we were able to have our rehearsal there and that we were able to go and set up the place the day before. Again, I would recommend the belvedere but just don't go with Orla or Cathy.

I had my wedding here on 10/19/13 and I'd like to think everyone had a great time despite the terrible job The Belvedere did. First of all, I got assigned Lorna as my coordinator. She was ok, nothing great. Never had a smile on her face or came off very friendly. Not to mention she added these giant, ugly candle looking things at the head table that I never approved of, which I made her remove immediately. Unfortunately the photographer already took all the pictures of the room and I'm really upset about that. The staff overall was friendly and attentive. If you're looking to have your wedding there, I would say DON'T. The food was horrible! NOTHING like we had at the tasting. We had a choice of chicken or fish. At the tasting the fish was delicious. So much so that we told everyone to order it! Well, imagine our embarrassment when the fish was served inedible to most of our guests. The fish had a very strong fishy smell and flavor, and was a gross grey color. A lot of our guests couldn't even eat it. You better believe we brought it to their attention. Paying $66/meal for something they couldn't even eat was unacceptable. Basically long story short, they could care less. They didn't offer a refund of any kind and pretty much said "oh well". I would never recommend this place and I plan on telling everyone I know. I understand things go wrong and mistakes are made, but the way they handled it was wrong and disappointing.

Belvedere Events & Banquets responded with the following comments:

We are very sorry for your experience. It is unfortunate to hear of your issue you encountered. I do hope that your family has recieved the reimbursment for the issue with the fish. Although my chef assured me that there was nothing wrong with the fish we did want to make sure you recieved something for your disapointment. Thank you and we wish you all the best.

My daughter had this venue set up with deposit and contract signed 1 1/2 years before date of wedding. Less then a year before the wedding we were told they were going to take part of our room away since the other wedding they booked needed more room. We looked at how they were going to set up our wedding. Boy what a difference. The tables were set with 10 place setting but twelve chairs ( so it would not seem so cluttered on the table.) We had chairs we could not even pull away from the walls. What a joke! They were trying to be accomadating but at our expense. We were then told we should not even had the amount of space in our contract and they were not going to give it to us!!! So we ended up leaveing the Belvedere and trying to find a space for the wedding with less than a year to book.
So what good is a contract do you when some other wedding party will spend more and take your space away from you??? Was not very professional. Lucky we found a venue that felt sorry for us and provided the wedding my daughter had already had planned. We did not have to compete with a bigger wedding either. So when you sign a contract early with discount because you signed early. WATCH OUT!! They do not stick to a signed contract.
