Lafayette Grande's Traveling Chef Catering provided dinner service for our wedding at The Crofoot Ballroom. The team from Traveling Chef as great and the food was amazing. They also provided linens and chair covers for us and everything went very smoothly. Our guests are still commenting on how great the food was. We got quotes from many other caterers that were double or triple the price we got from Traveling Chef. We attending a menu tasting and knew that their food was just what we wanted.

The Lafayette Grande is family owned, and that made them extremely easy to work with. They didn't nickel and dime us for things and they had no problem with our special requests. The food was great and we were even invited to attend taste testings once per month so we could try all the options and decide what we liked best. Everyone gave us compliments on how beautiful the place was. We worked with Greg from the beginning and it was great that he was at the hall during the event just to make sure everything ran smoothly. Really my only issue with them (and this was very minor) is that they let the cake table go empty about 3 times. They put out very little cake, the cake would run out, and it would be 10+ minutes before they put out any more. Many guests thought that we had run out of cake because when they went up to the table there was none left. Overall a great venue and I would highly recommend it to anyone!

This is a review for Lafayette, mainly focusing on the floor we chose - the Crystal Ballroom.
We were quite satisfied with Lafayette - the Crystal Ballroom is just beautiful! Even three months after the wedding, people still comment on how majestic the room is, and they've never seen anything like it. Honestly, the seating on 3 sides of the dance floor with a mezzanine, and 3 tiers of seating is quite unique. (Think theatrical Broadway-type room arrangement, or go look at pictures yourself).

Catering is included, no cake-cutting fee, free food tastings (buffets) until your wedding day (once a month), multiple points of contact (Angela, a wedding coordinator who works there that you could hire, but otherwise answers questions, and Greg the owner is awesome), oh and a quite large dance floor? All great perks of this place. A secluded buffet room, secluded bar, and second tier area if you have multiple events going on (like a photo booth or other ceremony) event. Appetizers, and after-dinner snack, as well as a honeymoon snack were included - but we had done the "book within 7 days or 2 weeks of seeing the place" timeframe deal.

They have free shuttle service to/from nearby hotels if you book enough rooms there.
If you are concerned about sound leaking from the other ballrooms if there are multiple weddings, we didn't even notice the other wedding being there.

In terms of setup, they normally only let you in at 9am the morning of your wedding. If they don't have an event the day before, you can inquire to set up that day - recommended!

Great Place! We had our reception here and everything was great. Food was amazing, staff was very friendly and helpful, the building is very beautiful and great for pictures. During the wedding planning I would send emails with questions and always got a response quickly. We did buffet style and it worked out great, the price is very affordable and their website lists everything upfront. Overall had a great experience!

Everyone at the Lafayette Grande was extremely helpful and courteous. We continue to get comments about our wedding reception and the venue, including how amazing the food was, how beautiful the wedding reception was, and how great the service was. We couldn't have been happier. I would recommend the Lafayette Grande to anyone!

This place is wonderful! They have such different rooms layouts to choose from and the old charm of it makes any event seem magical! I would give them more than 5 stars if I could just based on their flexibility and responsiveness! Every time I thoguht of somethin gnew or needed to change a detail, they all responded immediately! So much help finding outside vendors for lighting, chairs, valet, etc. Our reception was one fabulous party and I have to thank the whole team there for it!!!

The food was excellent, the venue is beautiful! They were very flexible with our needs. The only con was they ran out of some liquor and it wasn't as 'Premium' as we expected it to be.

My Husband and I had our reception in the Crystal Ballroom of Lafayette Grande on May 25th, 2013. It was so gorgeous inside and it resembles a royal ballroom!

For anyone who has always imagined being a princess on their wedding but is also on a budget, than the Crystal Ballroom is the place for you. I paid $56.00 per person ,that included taxes and service fees, 6 hours or ballroom rental, 6 hours of bar service, appetizers with small ice sculpture, sit down dinner, dessert bar with small ice sculpture, cutting of wedding cake, mini burger sliders for late night snack, and my husband and I got a bottle of champagne with flutes, salami and crackers and turkey croissant sandwiches for our honeymoon snack.

The only reason I gave Lafayette grande a 4.9 instead of a perfect score is because the chicken entree was a little teeny tiny bit dry. The flavor was amazing, but I am extra picky because I am an aspiring chef and culinary student.

I do want to thank the entire Lafayette Family for help making my wedding day so special. The Crystal Ballroom is gorgeous and I felt like a gorgeous princess in it!
