Loved everything that D'Andrea's had to offer! They were so attentive and made everything so great for my wedding to go off without any problems! No set up or clean up was great! The food was fantastic-just wish I had a bigger stomach to eat it all :) Lynette was a perfect planner and I am so thankful that she was there for everything!

I had a lot of ups and downs with my wedding. Lynette and Pam at D'Andrea's made all my troubles wash away!
I did not have to do ANYTHING! They took care of everything from setup to cleanup. The food was AWESOME! It was hot and fresh and tasted real good. my family is still talking about how much they enjoyed the venue and the the food.
I could not have pulled it off without them.
Thank you so very much D'Andrea's

Amazing, amazing, amazing!!! Lynnette was so friendly and helpful and organized! She helped me with a timeline to make sure I had everything covered and she coordinated the day-of experience so there were no gaps or issues. Every time I spoke with a vendor and told them the wedding was at D'Andrea's I got nothing but great comments about the place.

Also, the food here is phenomenal! And the servers/bartenders were all very nice and always available! It was just a perfect day for me and I'm so happy we chose D'Andrea's for the ceremony/reception hall!

I couldn't say more about D'Andrea - the food was wonderful and everything was absolutely perfect. Lynette is a perfect wedding coordinator for all things reception. I took all her recommendations and I was not let down all day.

She made my day beautiful and absolutely perfect. There were 3 other brides, and yet all the staff was receptive to me. (Even when I was feeling ill at dinner, someone got me some Advil which helped immensely.

If you are considering D'Andrea, you will not regret it!

This was a GREAT place to have a wedding! In fact, this was the 3rd family wedding there in 1 year...my sister & I were 2 of them! The food was GREAT!...the groom even got to pick his own food! We got many compliments on the food from the guests. The wait staff was also great & receptive. If we had any problems or requests, they were right on top of it and the were very friendly. Also, there was plenty of food & the hors d'oeuvres were passed around to everyone...a problem noted at a different facility for another family wedding. The wedding planner was wonderful...she made everything go smoothly from beginning to end. The room looked absolutely beautiful! The only complaint I have is that my guest book (which was a "wishing well") was NOT placed at the entry table but on the gift table so it was missed by most people.

This is the best banquet hall in the area! You will not be disappointed! Lynnette was great, very helpful and professional throughout the entire process. She has great suggestions and was very accommodating. We had a smaller wedding, 80 people, and this was one of the only banquet halls that we could find that could accommodate us without needing a minimum of 100+ people. The price was very affordable, my husband and I paid for the wedding ourselves and we we're so happy to find D'Andrea Banquets!! So much cheaper than the hotel next door and so much better service.

The food was absolutely amazing, everyone raved about it the entire night and keeps telling me that we had the best reception ever!! Appetizers were yummy, be sure to get the tiropites and the meatballs!! And their homemade ranch dressing is to die for!! Also, having an open bar included in the package is always fun!!

Overall, my experience was a great one. The team they have at D'Andrea Banquets is awesome. They are very helpful and went above and beyond my expectations. I didn't have to worry about anything. If I wanted something, it happened, no question asked. If I had a question about something, Lynnette was there to answer it. It was a great experience, went so smooth it felt like a dream.

LOVED EVERYTHING AT D'ANDREA BANQUETS!!! It was the only reasonably priced reception venue that we could find in our area. I wish we had just found them right in the beginning and skipped researching every other place. My husband and I never once had to worry about anything. They took care of us like we were family. The food was great. We (and our guests) were treated like royalty. They hooked us up with bakeries to choose from for the wedding cake. Lynnette even gave me some magazines to look through when I happened to make a comment about... "I wonder what I'm going to do with my hair." She was very flexible when we changed our minds a bunch of times about the slideshow and she was accomodating when we told her our DJ requested a larger table than the one they normally provide. Nothing was a problem. And Lynnette was always there to answer any questions I had (and there were a lot since I've never done this before). Haha! I highly recommend this place to... well, EVERYONE! : )

Our wedding reception was held at DAndreas in Crystal Lake. The food was excellent. We arrived to everything being set up as we had hoped- all of our favors were in place. My main complaint was that the food service was a bit slow. It appeared that they needed more staff for the occasion. They were also planning on only having one bartender for our event of 175 guests. I had to bring it up to the manager that this would most likely be inadequate. They ended up putting a second bartender on for the night. Besides those two issues, the night went very well.

D'Andrea's in Crystal Lake promised us that everything would be taken care of and in hindsight they did not take care of the bride and groom as well as we had hoped, on the other hand our guests did not know anything was wrong and loved it. The food was amazing and I have no complaints about that at all! What I have complaints about is that our wedding cake was put in a corner on a 3 foot table when it was suppose to be at the head of the dance floor on a 5 foot table, the wrong cake topper was on top of the cake (a funny statue my dad gave me was on top our cake) and the Precious Moments statue marked in Big Letters CAKE TOPPER was still in the box under the table. And finally the wait staff dumped our champagne and wedding cake before we got to drink it all or eat any cake because we were talking to our guests. I had said that I did not want any cake that wasn't eaten dumped but that apparently was not paid attention to like the word CAKE TOPPER. The reception hall was beautiful and the bar was great, it was just the minor things that cannot be changed that I found to be a bit upsetting. We are very lucky that this was the only thing that went wrong on our day but if going with this reception hall (which I do recomend-very good price and great meal) BE VERY SPECIFIC about what YOU expect.

They come off as very nice but there is a huge lack of communication there. We were promised a room for rehersal which they ended up booking. promised us another room and booked that one as well.

the food was good. except for those who have allergies. including me, and 5 of our guests. my chicken and theirs were extremely dry.

they screwed up the seating anrangment with the table numbers and my husbands mom had to fix it for them.

the bar tender was charging a dollar more to some of our guests for the same drinks.

the servers were cleaning off the tables after dinner and throwing away half full drinks our guests paid for.

they cleaned off the tables and took the water away after dinner while we were all dancing and obviously thirsty.

the wedding ended up being beautiful but there were a lot of undeeded issues that common sense woulx have helped them with.

also the young blonded server I dealt with was very rude and I later found out my guests who had her felt the same way.

there was a lot more that I dont feel like going into... the issuss werent major enough to ruin the wedding or anyones time. they were just extra unneeded stresses that could have easily been avoided. for that I would never recommend them.
