We worked with European Crystal for our wedding and had pro and cons. The venue itself was beautiful, the food was delicious and everything was pulled together very nicely and looked great. The only thing was that we clashed with one of the people working there. She was cold and didn't seem concerned about us personally being happy. We had to ask several times to have the air turned up (guests were complaining), we were rushed out at the end of the night and other promises were not fulfilled. All in all, what matters to me is that our guests were happy and had a great time. Everything looked beautiful and it was great from a guests view.

Anna and Krystyna were extremely helpful and professional. I really enjoyed and appreciated all of the efforts they made to make my day beautiful! I had my reception in the Grand Ballroom and it was truly a dream! I would highly recommend everyone to do their wedding here as well! :)

Highly recommend working with Michelle, we wouldn't have ended up with the beautiful day that we did without her! She worked with us every step of the way, and was there for our event making sure it was just as planned.
Food was amazing, guests keep telling us how impressed they were!

We held our wedding reception here at the end of October 2010. It was an evening to remember! We were drawn to this hall for its looks, stayed because of its potential, and were pleasantly surprised by how smoothly the evening went. Everything was fantastic (nothing is perfect, but right up there and managed very well). The contract was no hassle, everything was spelled out - no hidden fees... the taxes, gratuity, and everything was all spelled out and Michelle got us an invoice before payment was due to keep things simple. Actually, when we came in with less people than expected, they agreed to let us have a dessert buffet instead of paying for 15 unneeded dinners and having it be wasted. I dropped off all my centerpieces, table cards/names, champagne flutes, etc the week before the wedding with a list of directions for setup. The day of the wedding, everything set up exactly the way we discussed and there were no "surprises" the day of the wedding. Michelle was our event coordinator and took us through the planning. The night of the wedding, she came to me a few times to ask/clarify the questionable things (random uncles bringing their own alcohol, DJ time change, do you want us to box the cake, etc). It kept us in control, but we knew that she was handling it so we could enjoy ourselves and she didn't track us down every three seconds with needless questions. The bartender left a little to be desired and we had to ask to turn down the heat (probably from too many people dancing!) but other than that, flawless evening from start to finish. We've gotten more compliments on the dinner than any other part of the whole wedding. Everyone loved it! It was BY FAR the best food we've had at a big group event ever (fillet minion, chicken christopher, and a twice-baked potato) The cake was beautiful and better than I'd imagined it to look. I just couldn't have asked for a better or more memorable wedding day.

Our wedding was in September of this year and European Crystal was our top choice. It had a hotel feel- high ceilings with beautiful chandeliers, very professional staff, exquisite food! Our guests had a blast with the open bar and the scrumptious sorbet and cake!

this venue was amazing! they took care of everything, and I mean everything! I didn't have the least bit worry. My ceremony room was gorgeous and my Reception was so fancy! lol. I also did my rehearsal dinner at European Crystal and I would totally recommend doing that for other Brides. The Food was delicious, everyone was professional and all my guests were super impressed. Alice and Krystyna were exceptional.

The banquet hall was the prettiest and economical in the suburbs. It's the only place that has built in pin spot lights, which makes a huge difference in atmosphere The food was delicious, you won't get better food anywhere else. And the service was great. I highly recommend it!!!

We had our 4/17/2010 wedding at European Crystal Banquets. The hall is lovely with vaulted cathedral ceilings. They decor was perfect. The food wonderful. The staff attentive and friendly. Our only complaint was that the cake was really dry and we thought only our wedding was going to be held at the venue and a second wedding was booked on our night - but they're in it for the money, so we get it.

To be honest, I am extremley shocked by reading all these negative reviews about European Crystal Banquets. I just recently had my wedding there, and had the most wonderful expierence ever! I was working with Michelle from the 1st time I walked in for my 1st appointment to the end of my wedding night..Everything that was said on their end was promised and delivered. Michelle, the owners of European Crystal, and all of their managers were all working at my wedding which made me feel very comfortable, and if i needed anything I knew where to find them...they were so attentive to every detail and made sure that the dinner was going smoothly and not rushed! The food was out of this world..I ended up going with a combination plate of filet minion and chicken christopher! All of my guests were flooding me with compliments about the food and the sweet table..the majority of my guests were half Italian and half Polish and they all left my wedding very happy..I couldnt ask for a better venue or better service! Every dollar that I spent there was well worth it, and I would reccomend to all of my family and friends to have any kind of special event at European Crystal Banquets..At the end of my wedding night, I left European Crystal very happy and felt like I was treated as I was part of their family..nothing but good things to say about this place! :)
