The Casino is completely beautiful and a perfect space for around 200-225 people. The cocktail room and bar is HUGE and unqiue. The main room is so gorgeous you hardly need to bring in any of your own decor. We had very simple centerpieces because of the glam of the room. The staff is extremely friendly. The only issue is timing to get into the Casino as far as "viewing it on weekends" as its historical and they need someone to come open the building to view. If you are in and around Saratoga it's much easier. I would recommend this space to anyone. Also - our DJ music sounded perfect.

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').

After seeing the canfield casino we didn't have to look at any other venues. It was truly love at first sight! We got countless compliments by our guests about how beautiful it was. We also had our ceremony in congress park which was picture perfect.

Beautiful historic venue. Must bring in own caterer, linens, chairs, etc so expenses do add up but atmosphere is worth it!

The venue is absolutely breathtaking. When we were venue-shopping I was stalking various blogs and fell in love with the Casino. When I called in September of 2011 to check their available dates for May, June or July of 2013 I was shocked they only had one Saturday available! 2 hours later we had a check to the City to hold the date. Needless to say, since I booked the venue without even seeing it first, it is absolutely gorgeous! Everything was in pristine condition the day of the wedding and the guests were WOW-ed! The only downside is how far out you need to book it and the fees associated with renting the venue along with bringing in your own caterer (kitchen fee) and upgraded chairs. With that said, I would have my wedding there over again! :)

We had our reception at the Canfield and it was incredible! Everything was in place and there was not one single thing that could have been better about the place! I will say though that it can be hard to book a wedding as it is such a desirable place. Ours was on a Friday and because of that we got in and booked our reception 6 months prior to the event! We loved the casino, it was perfect!

Canfield Casino is one of the best wedding venues in New York. It served as a perfect backdrop for our vintage wedding reception and the staff there were so helpful and accommodating. Caterers love working there because they have a fabulous kitchen and guests are always amazed by the beauty of the casino because the parlor and the ballroom are stunning! The parlor serves as a great cocktail reception area and the ballroom has a great dance floor so that even if you have a large number of guests there is still plenty of room to dance it up. The stage allows for the perfect setup for the DJ and/or band and the doorway between the parlor and the ballroom made the perfect entrance for introductions. The Canfield Casino is a gem and a favorite among wedding couples which is why it is often hard to book so I would plan ahead if you can.

The venue is beautiful! One does not need to spend a lot of decor if on a tight budget....just a few flowers and votives makes the already beautiful venue, amazing.

We provided our own decorations and the venue worked with us. Since there wasn't an event the night before we were able to leave our decor items at the Casino the day before and just set up on the wedding day. This made it easier and less time consuming than having to cart and unpack decor items on our wedding day!

There is such a high demand to have your ceremony and/or reception here that dates are very limited. We had to book 1.5 years in advance.

Since this is only a venue, no catering onsite, one must bring in vendors for your event. This can get a little hairy unless you are organized or have an event planner.

I would recommend this venue for any event - it is gorgeous!
