It was an absolute pleasure working with all of the people at Chateau. Each and everyone of them that we interacted with presented their ideas, suggestions and helped us every step of the way. We have received so many compliments from our guests after the wedding stating that the food, service, and overall atmosphere at the Chateau was well above expectations. We will definitely recommend this venue to our friends when they get married.

My husband and I were married a few weeks ago and we had our reception at the Chateau Ritz. Originally I was looking mostly at venues downtown as well as different hotels in and outside of the city. Thank God we found the Chateau Ritz!

First of all...the value. You will pay tax AND gratuity up to 33% on top of the per person cost of almost ANYWHERE you go. Gratuity is INCLUDED here...and for the service provided, that is a steal. The per person for the best meal offered isn't more than $75...compared to anywhere else, awesome price.

Second...the overall look. This place is clean, elegant, beautifully decorated (but simple). Every single person who attended our reception made comments on how beautiful the venue was, and trust me...I did not spend a lot extra on decorations. I DEFINITELY recommend having the Ritz put up drapery at the entrance (with some uplighting) though...it really added to the room.
And spend some extra money on uplighting...it is worth every penny. Whether you go through a DJ or have the Ritz place some lights...do something, you won't regret it.

Third...the food. The food was GREAT. Everything from the salad to the soup, the hors d'oeuvres, and of course the entrees. My guests LOVED the food...and of course there top notch bar! And btw...your custom designed cake is included in their wedding packages!

Fourth...the service. From Nick, to Ari, to Mike (I think that's his name)....every single person that I spoke to was extremely helpful in every way at every point. They are understanding and accommodating whenever they can be.

I could probably go on and on. We could not have been happier! Do yourself a HUGE favor and take a look at this venue. If you are a city girl like myself who doesn't want to spend 50Gs on your wedding day but you still want something elegant and memorable in every way....book this venue the first chance you get.

My husband and I were so impressed with CR. We are not difficult, but the owners did whatever they could to make sure we were happy. They responded quickly to our phone calls, and even let us change the menu the week before. The food was hot and delicious. Our guests were raving about it (they still are). The bartenders were friendly (I've never been to a wedding where the bartenders were nice), and they made the drinks strong with a smile on their face. The sweet table was fabulous as well. Thank you Mike, Nick, Ari, and the rest of your wonderful family for making our wedding a success. We love you!!

We looked at several reception venues but as soon as we walked into the Chateau Ritz we loved every second of it until the end of our wedding. Mike was the initial person we spoke with and we cant speak enough about him and the level of personal service he provided. Every time we had a question or a possible concern they responded immediately. The decor of the venue is very beautiful and elegant. We went with family style for our menu and the quality for the price can't be beat. They definitely care about their customers and make sure that everything is taken care of from beginning to end. We highly recommend the Chateau Ritz for weddings and any other type of event as they are amazing.

I just had my wedding reception at Chateau Ritz past weekend (6/30/12) and I can't say enough. This banquet hall is the best there is. They have wonderful staff members, supportive, helpful, patient, approachable, and professional. The day of the wedding- I admired that dinner was served by a good amount of waitresses, two managers, and the owner. Someone was always around in case we needed anything but the entire event was planned out and organized so well that I didn't need to worry about anything. It went so smoothly.Overall, I was really impressed with the quality of the food, the quantity, and service. Everything was fresh, well seasoned, well cooked, and most importantly warm.
We received many compliments on choosing this Hall and I am very proud of my decision. It was elegant, well decorated, staffed appropriately, and profesional. They really made my dreams come true. I wouldn't change anything about it. Another great thing was the bridal suite, which we had all to ourselves. It was goreous. Very spacious, with a couch, chairs, table, beautiful big mirror, private restroom and a shower (in case of need). The entire hall is well kept, clean, with beautiful chandeliers. Let me also mention that prior to booking this Hall I went though about 7 or 8 other reception banquet halls and boy I am glad I kept looking because it was really worth it. Best of Luck!

I love this hall. It is absouletly beautiful. Everyone who works here is great. They have great prices and really work with you. I had orginal only had two whole rooms for my wedding I asked two weeks beforemy wedding if the other side had been taken yet they said no and let me have the whole hall for my wedding which was amazing. I had a little over 300 guests. The food, sweetable, and cake i had was unbelieveable. I still have people talking about my wedding. They getting everything done for you, the set up, clean up, etc. I had two bars that were staffed by two people each ari I think thats how you spell it is the best. The owner is amazing he really works with you in price, he also gives you a shot of drink everytime your there. I got everything that I could have that they offered especially family style. They also give you great referrals which i used. I meet all the vendors they use cake and linens. I am very honored to have my reception here and hope to use them again in the future.

Everyone I worked with at Chateau Ritz was extremely helpful and nice. They made practical suggestions and recomendations. The food was wonderful. 8 months after our wedding I still have our guests tell me we had great food. They work with other vendors and they took care of the sweet table and cake, table linens and chair covers. The best part was during our wedding everything ran perfectly smoothly. When 10 extra guest who didn't rsvp showed up, I (the bride) wasn't bothered and they moved the band to a different table to make room for the extra guests without making a fuss. The bartenders were great as well, serving mojitos and anything our guests wanted. We had 150 guest but this place would be great for 200+. Would highly recommend!

Overall they did a good job. Had to haggle with them a bit to get the food setup we wanted so they could've handled that better. They performed well on day of event.

The restaurant people were very nice, and they made everything work on our wedding day so that we wouldn't have to worry about a thing. The only thing i would recommend is the food options, perhaps enhancing the options because there wasn't much for us to work with.
