This venue is amazing! We just had our wedding there on June 11th and had the most amazing time! The venue is perfect for approximately 150 guests! It's so charming with a classic feel. We didn't have to do a lot of decorating because the space already speaks for itself. The outdoor ceremony space is not the traditional space, but more of a garden party vibe that made it interesting and a great place to take photos. Once we were done with the ceremony, guests went upstairs for the reception. We had extra kids and arrive and the staff was willing to set them right up! The banquet team is very flexible and were willing to work with us on all accounts. Don't let me forget about the food! The food was just simply delicious and the desserts were even better!

We had our wedding reception here and I couldn't be more happy with our experience at Jax Cafe. Jane, the banquet manager is extremely professional, yet very personable. She was helpful in selecting food options. If you care about the food you will be serving to guests, then Jax is where you should be having your reception. Everything was fantastic!

Jax is also a great location to get some pictures both inside and outside. Everything from the back patio, to the old phone booths, to the main bar provide fantastic photo ops.

Our reception at Jax was outstanding! We lucked out having Jane as an event coordinator----she is very professional and made sure all of our needs were met. The food was served promptly and to die for! And right outside the restaurant on the first floor is a beautiful garden with statues and a pond----perfect for pictures!!!

We had a small garden wedding on the patio for about 40. We had cocktails and appetizers passed until we began our service. I was not worried if it rained...the patio was covered for this amount of people or we would have had the service upstairs. After the ceremony we had dinner for about 150 upstairs. We started with a cocktail hour and appetizers following by dinner. The staff were incredible! They know how to serve 150 people. They are professionals. I had an open bar for part of the time. They worked closely with my budget and we had NO surprises. One of the big reasons I picked Jax was for their food. It was great! I found out later, I picked it for the service, ambiance and value as well! The patio was beautiful! A local magazine did a story on our wedding because of how beautiful the setting was!

Jax cafe was absolutely fantastic! Jane is a professional and it shows! She has so much experience, nothing surprises her- she can handle anything! She is laid-back and easy going. She puts you at ease! I gave her all of the details and she executed everything perfectly. She was very responsive and I had no doubts that things would go smoothly leading up to the big day. She is a joy to work with!

She let us come into the Cosmopolitan room a couple of days before to practice our dance on the floor. They also let us bring in the decorations the day before to store them. They set up all of the decorations for us. They made everything incredibly easy and low stress. When I asked Jane about when we needed to turn off the music and pack up, she basically said "whenever"!

The ambiance at Jax Cafe is also great- you almost don't need to decorate! Very elegant. And in early spring they have hundreds of tulips out in the backyard/garden!! Perfect photo opportunity! Just beautiful.

Jax Cafe is the definition of quality, responsive, professional, value, and flexibile. I have zero complaints. I highly recommend Jax Cafe!

We booked the larger banquet rooms upstairs and it was perfect. What do people really remember from a wedding reception? The food and the ambiance. Jax has both. Our wedding was over two years ago (slow on the reviews, I know) but I still have people coming up to me telling me how much they loved Jax and how they have been back since our wedding.

We chose this restaurant thanks to a recommendation for a co-worker. We're having a low-key reception after having an intimate (read: just me and my husband) ceremony in Kaua'i. It's a fun lunch where we'll eat, drink, be merry, and show the video from our ceremony with family and friends. Jane at Jax has been very fun to deal with. She has tested us a bit with her memory (or lack thereof) but absolutely nothing that has caused issue.

I do have to stay on top of her a bit with emails, but I can imagine that she's a pretty busy lady.

The restaurant itself REALLY should advertise their event services more. The food is amazing! The interior is SO charming and gorgeous! I woudl HIGHLY recommend checking this place out!

Because we're having it as a lunch, there's NO fee for the room; we simply paid a deposit that will be applied towards the food charge. They also provide cool little customized matchbooks - FREE! They also rent some aspects of the centerpieces. It's been SO easy for us because we're pretty low-key and not looking to wow people with over the top design and decorations.

Very happy with the experience!
