Getting married soon? Something different is waiting for you at Joey Buona’s Restaurant in historic downtown Milwaukee. Full of old-world charm and Tuscan warmth with over-sized windows, Cream City brick archways, Tiffany fixtures, a beautiful leather-faced bar, wine colored drapery and so much more, you’ll hardly need to spend a dime on décor as the beauty of the room speaks for itself.

The unique layout of the banquet space allows for guests to sneak away to the lounge room for a few private words or relax on the oversized leather furniture while the rest of your guests are on the other side of the banquet space dancing the night away on the parquet dance floor.

Last but not least you will have your very own Event Manager to walk you through every step of the way and a professional staff of Banquet Servers to execute a flawless experience. Read less

We held our wedding reception this past weekend at Joey Buona's and it was absolutely amazing! We got so many compliments on the food, the location, and the service. I have several family members that came up from Chicago and they especially were very impressed with the venue. People also loved the family style dinner. We went for the Casanova bar package and were very pleased with that as well.
Amanda the event coordinator is fabulous, she has a very quick response time and will do anything within reason to help make your wedding vision a reality. She even let our DJ use his fog machine! Because we along with both of our mothers wanted to help with everything, Amanda had a lot of people communicating with her, and she was extremely understanding and made everyone feel a part of the process.
All in all, we had our dream wedding and would highly recommend Joey's for a venue. It is an excellent value compared to others in the same area, and we heard nothing but great things from all of our guests.

Excellent food at an excellent price. Would definitely use them again in the future for other events. The waitstaff was extremely friendly and prompt. We picked them because of their price, but was extremely impressed by them. Everyone is still talking about how great the food was

We loved working with Joey's! We booked the venue over a year in advance as we wanted to hold both our ceremony and reception at the same site as we had a lot of family traveling in town. Joey's was super accomodating! We had gone to a wedding there a couple years earlier and loved EVERYTHING about it. The atmosphere, the decor, the vintage feel, the staff--we could not have asked for a better venue. The only issue we ran into was with responsiveness, which is because during the year we booked the venue went through three even planners, which was not expected. Luckily, none of information was lost in translation and Amanda, the new event coordinator, made our day unforgettable. She was super attentive and very respsonsive to all of our needs. We also want to thank Holly, the manage on duty that night--she was increidible in all that she did for us that night. If you want a great venue with the BEST italian food you'll ever have, pick Joey's--you won't regret it!

We were absolutely blown away by the quality of service and the quality of food that Joey Buona's provided for our wedding reception. The staff was so kind and accommodating on our wedding day, as well as the months leading up to our wedding. They have the kindest and sweetest staff. On top of that, the food was fantastic! Two of our favorite dishes were the Tuscan Harvest salad and the Saltimbocca stuffed chicken. Delicious. Joey Buona's was an all around phenomenal caterer that exceeded all of our expectations.

The staff was professional and very helpful - going above and beyond what was expected. The food was delicious and there was plenty. All guests commented on how wonderful the food was. Very happy with the service, especially considering the short notice we gave them.

Wow! I cannot say enough about how happy my husband and I were that we had our reception at Joey Buona's. It was perfect. Our guests are still raving about the food and people really enjoyed the elegant, yet cozy atmosphere in their banquet room. Jamie was easy to work with and very flexible with some of our ideas for decorating and food. We just couldn't have asked for better service. Thank you!

This place is a hidden gem in downtown Milwaukee. Excellent prices for downtown location and staff is so accomodating. I am so happy we selected Joey Buona's for our reception site. It's has so much character and is quite intimate. Great choice if you're not into a reception in a great big boring hotel ballroom.

The wedding contact was not the easiest person to get a hold of during the planning process. However, the evening went smoothly. It was a really interesting and different venue. The food was delicious!
