Café La Cave was amazing!! Randy was there for my husband and I every step of the way, offering suggestions, suggesting vendors and negotiating with vendors. I took Randys advice on my florist, my photagrapher and the band, absolutely remarkable, I could not be happier. The food is so elegant and well prepared, I had several guest tell me they are coming to the restaurant because the wedding food was so enjoyable. The service was impecable, a waiter to every table. Top shelf liquor, the flow was so seemless, even when my mother in law lost her shoe going down the aisle, Randy swooped in and put her shoe back on without batting an eye. Everything was beyond my expectations, the night was truly memorable and I'm grateful I was able to find such a gem where you are cared for like family and everyone is there to make your experience amazing.

Cafe La Cave is the entire package! Amazing food; classic, elegant and gorgeous atmosphere; impeccable service; and Carrie and Randy are worth more than their weight in gold!
- The Food:: Everything from the appetizers being passed during cocktail hour (along with unlimited amounts of champagne), to the 4 course dinner was sensational. The appetizers were always in full supply, so our guests were never looking around for the wait staff to get a something before all of the hor devours were gone. The entire dinner menu was flawless! The lobster bisque is soo good, you'll want to eat from a punch bowl; the salad was elegant and fresh; and the main course was incredible! Everyone could not stop raving about the delicious options we were able to serve them and how juicy, flavorful and filling it was.
- The Service:: The wait staff, bartenders and all the additional help did a fantastic job the entire night. We had 265 people attend, and with 3 bartenders - there was NEVER a line! The bartenders were quick, personable and the drinks were flowing! The wait staff brought out and placed the food quickly, and cleaned up quietly. That is something you hardly ever see at weddings.
- The Atmosphere:: Carrie surprised us by decorating the place before with their Christmas decorations, which completely blew us away! The place looked incredibly elegant and something I couldn't even dream up! The entire venue felt warm and inviting, and our guests felt as though they were somewhere out of a Disney Fairy-tale.
- Reception:: Here is where Carrie shined! She made our reception hall look immaculate! People cannot stop complimenting us on how gorgeous the space looked.
- LISTEN TO RANDY!! He is a genius as a wedding coordinator and will never steer you wrong! When he says trust me - Do it! If he brings up a different layout than a traditional wedding, listen to him. My husband and I were skeptical at first, but we trusted Randy - and Thank god we did! The night was beyond magical.

Our wedding reception was PERFECT! We could not have asked for a more extravagant venue for our special day. They have exceeded our expectations in every single way. Working with them has been a seamless process. I don't have the words to describe how wonderful everything was. The service our guests received was incredible (our guests still rave about it). The food was DELICIOUS! I can't wait to go back and have dinner there again. I highly recommend this venue for your next event. Randy, Carrie & the whole staff at Cafe La Cave - we would like to THANK YOU a million for all you have done for us!

Ahhh! Where do I begin? From the moment I walked into Cafe La Cave it gave me goose bumps and upon meeting Randy I knew I had found the perfect place for our wedding. So many other places were cold and rude and were just willing to offer you their room and food but with Randy we got something completely different. PASSION! Randy is detail oriented and loves his job. He is all about making every bride’s wedding dreams come true. He offered lots of creative ideas and really took the reins on making sure everything was coordinated elegantly. He referred me to the BEST vendors with who I was able to make my dream a reality. I had lots of ideas and visions (BLINGY, DREAMY, CLASSY, FUN) and we were able to make it all come together. I cried the moment I saw both the ceremony and reception rooms. They were stunning! We had the time of our lives. Everything was sheer perfection. The food was delicious (filet and chicken), the service was IMPECCABLE and the dance floor was packed. Friends and family are blown away by the venue and service provided. I was told it was the best wedding they had ever been to, the most beautiful and stunning, the best food they ever had at a wedding, their glasses were never empty, the service staff was friendly, patient and approachable, the list goes on and on. The staff also began to recognize my guests (in one instance my aunt didn’t even have to give her ticket to the valet, she turned around and her car was there). This is an event that will go down in history as one of the best! I cannot thank Randy and the crew at Café La Cave enough for helping our wedding dream come true! xoxoxoxo
