Absolutely beautiful! Our guests were in love with this venue (as were we!), Between the huge bar, the beautiful parlor room and the breathtaking ceiling in the ballroom, this is the perfect wedding venue! The staff was also very nice and helpful!

Part One: The venue
The venue is absolutely amazing! It is such a beautiful space, that cannot be beat. To be in the middle of Saratoga Springs with parking, a place for your ceremony, cocktail hour and reception, there really isn't a better option.

Part Two: The customer service
The customer service definitely left room for improvement. For one, the hours that you are able to be in the building are pretty limited if you don't live in town (or nearby). I live out of state, so coming in for the weekend and seeing the place wasn't an option. When I did work it out with Kelly, she let me know that there would be an event on Saturday evening. Therefore, we were given permission to meet our caterer at The Casino and allow my future in-laws to see the place for the first time. She let us know that there would be setup taking place for the event, but we could be there from 3- 5 pm and to enter through the side door. When we arrived there was an older man that was very, very rude to us. He told us that we had no business being there and there is no way Kelly would have given us permission. When we found our caterer she said she had also been yelled at and told that there was no one in the building that was meeting her. We tried to stand out of the way and discuss plans for our wedding (chairs, table set up, band set up, food, etc.), and twice the man came and told us we needed to move. To be clear, we were in the Parlor where there was not a single piece of equipment or a person in sight, but somehow we were in the way. We only stayed in the building for about 20 minutes before deciding to finish our conversation outside. As we were leaving, the older man was giving a tour to 4 people (probably the bride, groom and the bride's parents), and he was telling them it was a perfect place for their wedding. Also, be careful when reserving "upgraded chairs" through them. They were not what was described to me, otherwise I would have rented different chairs.

We had our wedding on November 7, 2015 at the Canfield Casino and it was absolutely the perfect venue for a wedding of our size (roughly 200 guests). Everyone commented how beautiful the venue was, from the large bar and parlor space to the historic ballroom. The Casino allows you the flexibility of choosing from an approved list of caterers that all compete for business so their pricing is lower than going to a vendor owned location. The Casino is absolutely beautiful lit up and requires very little expense for centerpieces as the more candles/votives the better!

The Canfield Casino is just such a beautiful place. All of our wedding guests just marveled at it as they entered.

The staff running it are very professional, responsive and nice. The only downside is that since they're owned by the city they have restrictions on the use of fire (no sparklers, no paper lanterns, etc.). However, everything else was just top-notch.

This venue is spectacular! It provides a beautiful space for a reception, and has a separate area for Cocktail hour. My guests were awed by the beauty of the building. A word of warning, this venue is so popular you have to book your date well in advance. We booked a year and a half ahead of time and were limited on the dates available. Other than that, this venue was absolutely perfect for us!

Our reception was at the Canfield Casino and let me just say, it was the talk of the night. It is the perfect venue for your guests to be completely wowed. We went with the Canfield, as we wanted to customize it to our needs and pick what vendors really shined in the area to make our wedding special. From cocktail hour where your guests see the gorgeous bar and parlor room to start, than to open up the huge doors to go into the main dining area where you look up and see the Tiffany glass windows is just amazing. Guests were just amazed to see this venue and how gorgeous it really is. It is the responsibility of the bride and groom to figure out all of the vendors, as the Canfield is just the place to house everyone under one roof. Again though perfect place to customize, but I will say it was pretty expensive, with all the travel fee's for some vendors, but because we booked amazing vendors in the area, we didn't have to be killed by those fee's, so look in town, as there are plenty of talented people. HIGHLY RECOMMEND if you plan to customize your day and recommend getting a wedding planner to keep track of everything!

Our winter wedding at the Canfield Casino was absolutely beautiful! The space is so unique and yet classic. The space books up almost two years in advance so we were lucky to be planning a winter wedding and were able to host our ceremony and reception here. The historic features of the building are what really makes it beautiful. From the light coming through the glass on the ceiling to the wooden bar - the entire venue has such character. We enjoyed that the venue requires you to bring in an outside vendor and we selected a local restaurant, Maestro's at the Van Dam, to cater our reception. Our guests commented that it was one of the most beautiful wedding venues they have ever been it. Yes, while it is a bit tricky to view the venue, with some advanced notice or a friendly vendor who is getting the venue ready on a weekend you can view it easily, even as an out-of-towner (which we were).

I grew up in the area, always hearing about the Canfield Casino but never actually attending an event there. When I got engaged, it was my top choice of a venue to check out - in fact, it was one of only two venues we looked at before signing on the dotted line. The beauty of the Casino and its distinct vintage character were the selling points for us - we loved the period details (including the wonderfully weird chandeliers and the giant painting of Napoleon on horseback) and were inspired by the space in every aspect of our wedding planning. Working with the city of Saratoga was surprisingly easy, from initial contract to spending our 15 minutes on the carousel on our wedding day. Although we liked that we could bring in any caterer we chose, we were ultimately glad that we chose Mazzone, which had lots of experience working in the Casino; our event managers were able to anticipate some of the quirks of the space. It was also wonderful to have a wedding planner familiar with the venue (Katie O').
