Sabrina and the Cedar's team were excellent to work with. I planned my wedding with a 1,600 mile gap between me and the wedding location. Sabrina was very flexible with the difficulties that come with long distance planning. The Cedars team provided great advice for helping the reception to run as smoothly as possible. The day of the reception Sabrina had everything under control so I didn't have to worry about a thing. She was easy to work with when it came to set up prior to the event. The food was excellent, especially the mashed potatoes! I definitely recommend the Cedars to anyone planning a wedding in the St. Louis area.

All of our guest said it was the most beautiful reception they'd ever been to! You also can't beat the price for such a central location!

The Cedars Banquet Center was a wonderful venue for our daughter's wedding! When we walked into the banquet room it was like walking into a bridal dream. The center was spacious, well lit with the uplighting and chandeliers, and a warm and friendly atmosphere awaited all of our guests! Sabrina and Tony were fantastic to work with in every sense. They truly made sure that the evening would go off without any problems, and they were right. The entire evening was absolutely perfect from the room decor, to the delicious food, to the service (all of the wait staff were polite and professional.) We could not been any more pleased! Our salute to Sabrina, Tony and the staff at The Cedars!!!!!

We can't THANK Sabrina and Tony enough on the amazing job they did for our daughters wedding reception.
Cedars is a BEAUTIFUL room and the up-lighting added a finishing touch! From the beginning, working with Sabrina was great, she always responded in a timely manor and was very accommodating to any of our request (any last minute details were handled right away) The room is very spacious, that was very important to use to have our guest have room to more around the tables. The bride and groom especially liked the large dance floor (which was full most of the night!) The food was delicious, and all the servers were friendly and kept the tables clear without being in the way, they were all very professional. We had many compliments on Cedars (some wished they would have know about Cedars when their daughter got married) This is definitely very reasonable for all they do. I keep looking at the pictures and how beautiful everything was and how happy we were to chose Cedars!!! THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU

When I first began searching for a reception venue, I read numerous reviews about The Cedar's praising the service, affordable price, great food and flexibility of staff.

I have to say that my experience mirrored that of others. Sabrina was exceptionally attentive and kind, offering assistance with a smile. The hall itself was beautiful and my guests were quite pleased with the dinner buffet selections and quality. The Cedar's is great about working with outside vendors, which can be a challenge at some other reception locations.

In the future, if planning a large event, I would highly recommend and even consider again choosing The Cedar's.

We had a great experience at the Cedars. They were very accommodating with our requests. We were granted access to the venue the day before the wedding to set-up place cards, candy buffet, table decorations, etc. This made the wedding day much less stressful. The food was good and was served quickly to our 200 guests. Sabrina made the evening run very smoothly and I (the mother of the bride) didn't have to worry about anything.

Everything I could have hoped for and imagined for my wedding reception, The Cedars accomplished just that. The dinner service was spot on, food was delicious. The space was perfect for the guest list of 250, and there was still room to chit chat from one side of the hall to the other. The LED lightening was perfect, not too much but just enough to add a little extra pop! The dance floor was so big, perfect where we weren't bumping into each other too much. My most favorite part, that won me over with choosing to go with The Cedars in the first place, was the gorgeous chandeliers!! I couldn't have asked for anything else. So many of my friends and family came up to me during the reception and days after, telling me how beautiful everything was. I couldn't have done it without the help of Sabrina, the coordinater with The Cedars. She was amazing. From start to finish she was at my side when I needed her. Very prompt with returning my emails. On the day of, she knew what we wanted and delivered it. My husband and I strongly recommend that you check out The Cedars if you happen to be looking for a great price per head, seated dinner with real dinnerware and glasses, a large dance floor, LED lightening, and gorgeous chandeliers to pull the whole room together. You won't regret it if you end up choosing them!!

I cannot say enough good things about Sabrina, Tony, and the Cedars!!! This is truly THE gem of St. Louis banquet facilities. Besides the hall being absolutely gorgeous, the food is amazing, and the rates are more affordable then anything you can find in St. Louis. Why anyone looks elsewhere is beyond me!!! Sabrina is the nicest, most patient, flexible person I worked with during the whole planning process. She was very quick to answer any questions I had. She made our wedding reception run more smoothly then I could have imagined, it was everything I hoped it would be. I would highly recommend the Cedars to anyone looking. If you read through the reviews, I think they speak for themselves. I am so happy that I could add to them. Thank you so much Sabrina!!!

I couldn't have been more lucky to have found The Cedar's. I found it on, what I told myself was going to be, the last day of searching. I went to look at it over lunch and by 3pm was driving over the deposit check without anyone else seeing it! Everyone was very impressed with the look of the venue, the cleanliness, the professional staff, the rates and all that was included. With having a large wedding it's important to find a venue that can not only accommodate everyone but is affordable as well. The Cedar's includes so much at such a low price but makes sure you don't lose quality. Tony and Sabrina were amazing to work with. They bent over backwards to try and make sure my many requests and wishes came true. All brides need to go take a look at The Cedar's. You won't be disappointed!

We absolutely loved the Cedars. We enjoyed working with Sabrina and Tony. They were very friendly, professional and worked with us to give us everything we wanted on our special day. The hall looked beautiful, the food was great and everyone had a great time dancing on the large dance floor. Our guests were pleased with everything and we couldn't have picked a better place for our reception. Thank you to Sabrina and Tony for making our reception such a success.

We had our wedding reception 9-29-12 at the Cedars and loved every minute of it. Tony and Sabrina are great to work with! They were very accommodating in the fact that we had a fairly small reception, but they helped us fill up the room to make it look like a much larger one. They were always prompt with responses to any questions or issues I had arise. I got so many compliments on how beautiful the hall was and how good the food was (get mashed potatoes!)

I loved everything about The Cedars, especially the people I worked with! Sabrina and Tony made planning my wedding go very smoothly. I live out of town and they were willing to work around my schedule. Between my parents and myself we must have visited at least 6 times, and they were always very patient with our questions and changes. Sabrina was very quick responding to emails and she was a joy to work with.

I used the up-lights The Cedars offers and they made the room look even more beautiful than it already is. My fiance brews his own beer which he wanted to serve at our reception. Tony was very considerate of this and let us bring it in the day before. The bartender served the home brew along with the other drinks. (We also had an open bar).

Overall, I was completely happy with The Cedars. I would definitely recommend having your wedding or other party here!

Choosing The Cedars for our reception was one of the best decisions we made. Everyone was very nice, Sabrina was extremely fast in emailing me back when I had questions. The food was really good! Many of our guests have commented that the food we had was better than at most receptions they have been to. In fact a lot of our guests have nothing but good things to say about our reception and neither do we. If I had to go back and have my wedding all over again, booking with The Cedars would be one of the first things I'd do.

I hope I filled this out correctly, assuming 5.0 is the Best rating, because I wholeheartedly recommend The Cedars Banquet Center to anyone considering a special event of any kind (ours was a wedding reception.) Everyone we encountered, starting with Tony, the gentleman in charge at The Cedars, and Sabrina, the event coordinator, through the wait staff and kitchen help, couldn't have been more accommodating and courteous throughout the process. Sabrina is professional, helpful, accessible, enthusiastic and patient at all times, even when things get a little hectic, as they will with weddings! She was overseeing things throughout our event and was still there when the last guests left and all of the wedding gifts were stored in our vehicles. The hall was set up exactly as we had requested and I want to say, the room just glowed! We have received a lot of compliments about everything from the food, the service, the friendliness and courtesy of the wait staff and the beauty of the hall. We feel that their prices are quite reasonable when compared with other venues and that what we received was worth every penny. I also want to add that some items, including a purse, were left by some of our guests and promptly turned in and returned to us the next day. As everyone knows (sadly) this would not always be the case when valuables are left behind. I am very happy to be able to recommend The Cedars to anyone in search of a venue for a special occasion!

When I started looking for places to hold our reception I wanted a place that offered both customer service and elegance! I looked all over St. Louis county and city. What I liked most about The Cedars was that it was one large room that you did not have to share with someone else. What I mean by this, is that our wedding was the only wedding at the place. All of the focus is on you. I did not have to share the facility with some other wedding. When you have to share the facility with someone else, I think it takes away from your evening and when it is your day the focus should be on you! I could not beleive how affordable The Cedars is. I almost felt guilty for all the stuff we were offered for the price we paid. Amy and Tony are wonderful. We could not have asked for anyone better. Thank you guys so much for everything. Anyone considering The Cedars for your reception you have to have there cool up-lighting for your event (very affordable and makes the room that much cooler).

We were VERY pleased with our entire experience at the Cedars Banquet Center. We found everyone easy and knowledgeable to work with before, during and after the wedding reception. The hall was decorated as we requested, the food was wonderful, and the service was beyond our expectations. Our experience at the Cedars was exceptional. We would certainly use them again.

The Cedars is definitely one of St. Louis's best venues for any formal or casual event. The entire staff was extremely professional and the service, food and drinks were exceptional. You get excellent quality for a very reasonable price. The management and event planners went above and beyond to ensure that our dream wedding reception was a reality. I strongly recommend The Cedars to anyone for any type of celebration. Save yourself the time and unneeded stress, and don't get caught up negotiating with other over priced and sterile hotels and out-of-date banquet halls in the area. Make sure to check out the Cedars - the facility is modern and clean and the ambiance is like no other. It was an easy decision for us, and one of the best we made in our entire planning process!

We had a sit down dinner for 380 guest, and it was unbelievable how fast everyone was served. Amy and Tony were fantastic to work with. I think Tony would consider me a high maintance bride, but he always made time for me and made sure all my questions were answered. I highly recommend The Cedars for your next event!

In addition, the food was delicious. Our guests are still talking about how great the roast beef and mash potatoes were. I would highly reccommend this venue.

Recently renovated (beginning of 09) the Cedars provides lots of space, a huge dance floor and big stage. Its near downtown and easy to get to. Its clean, modern, and for the price surprisingly elegant. Although the immediate surrounding area may not be the greatest neighborhood there is plenty of of on site, secure, guarded parking. The food was good and staff exceptional. They were always willing to take time to answer all our questions, accommodate our requests and provide their professional advice.
A very smart, affordable alternative to many of the pricey classic downtown reception locations.

We were so happy with working with The Cedars. They were very responsive as we set up the event and as we neared the wedding date. From the beginning we were happy working with the venue, since they had clear ad accurate information available on the website for our research. Tony and Sabrina were both very helpful from the beginning, staying in touch throughout the initial decision making process. Sabrina met with us to provide a fully guided tour and was available at all times for questions. Location and cost were two of the highest priority items for us, and I found this to be one of the more affordable options within the city and with this proximity to downtown.

Additionally, on the event day, the Cedars made every effort to ensure the reception went smoothly, including making a last minute change to the set-up of the room, and having the room set up early on the wedding day for us to bring in any necessary decorations or supplies. My husband and I had no worries at the reception, which I think is a testament to the hard work they put in behind the scenes.

It would have been awesome to be able to pay extra at the end of the night to extend the reception. This was not an option for us. Also- all vendors must come that night to pick things up. It's not a HUGE deal, but some vendors would prefer next day. Everyone said that is was the most beautiful reception they have ever been too. Our centerpieces looked great in the room, and everything went really smoothly. It was perfect!

We had our daughter's wedding reception at The Cedars in July, 2011 and we were pleased with most aspects. First and foremost, it is a beautiful venue and easialy accessible to the downtown St. Louis area. The building is clean, spacious and well taken care of, and the parking lot is well lit and secure. The reason I did not give The Cedars a four or five star rating is I thought the food was just average and the bartenders seemed a bit stingy with their drinks. Additionally, I thought the food and beverage price for children was very high (The Cedars charged one half the price of an adult for a child over 6 years old). Overall I would recommend The Cedars as a good venue for a special event.

Working with The Cedars was overall a positive experience. We ran into a few communication issues as working with three employees (Tony, Sabrina, and Candice) sometimes got us three different answers to our questions. Questions we asked Sabrina were answered with "I'll check on that and get back to you" but we never heard back from her directly on most of them - many times I had to follow up with an email or another phone call and got a response from Candice instead. The menu tasting scheduling process created unnecessary stress in an already stressful time.
On the night of our reception - the entrance for the Bridal Party was locked when we arrived (we were told, by Sabrina, it would be unlocked - picture a formal Bridal Party of 24 waiting outside). Tony moved fast to let us in. Throughout the night I didn't feel I received any guidance from anyone at The Cedars. No one (aside from Tony who unlocked the door) greeted us or said "okay, this is how things are going to go." An event like that can be very overwhelming and it would have been helpful if someone had been off to the side managing the order and flow of the evening and guiding the Bride and Groom specifically - saying "okay, cut the cake now" "now walk back and cut the grooms cake" "bouquet toss in 20 minutes." I would highly recommend The Cedars for a Wedding Reception - the space is beautiful, the parking lot is secure and convenient for guests, the food is great, and the staff is laid back throughout the planning process, and they are reasonably priced. I would also recommend being very specific about how you want things to go night of your event - if you get answers like "we can work that out" or "don't worry about it" insist on knowing for certain what the game plan is - and that everyone at The Cedars is on the same page.

We on.y had a couple of set backs. The 2 bartenders that we had were extremely rude and not to mention non accommodating. Our guests constantly raved about the wonderful food but all had the same comment of how rude the bartenders were. Some of the guests even tried to make a game to see if they could get the one bartender to even smile, and all of the guests who played lost. I have given the lower rating because of the two bartnders

The other complaint I have was that we believe the venue took the extra cake without giving it ack to us. We had a nine tiered cake with 220 guests and we only took home one tier.
