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!

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!

The Lafayette Grande was absolutely incredible. Working with Ryan was so seamless and he made everything super easy, also putting up with my myriad questions. He allowed my cousin ( a beer distributor) to bring in our own beer at no extra cost and also allowed us to come set up our decor the day before.

The fourth floor crystal ballroom had our guests talking all night - it was a perfect, vintage setting. The food was also impeccable. We had carved roast beef, chicken florentine, special mashed potatoes, glazed belgian carrots and caesar salald - all of which were great. Instead of doing a cake, we did the ice cream sundae bar which was a full banana split bar which everyone really loved.

I would recommend them again and again - they're friendly, family run, and just awesome all around. Go with Lafayette!

This place was so special and so different from all the reception venues we looked at. My husband and I love historic buildings. The food was delicious and they made the potatoes we asked for special. They also made sure we all were safely to our cars at the end of the night.
At first we were put off by it being in Pontiac, but take a look. You won't be disappointed!

My wedding was magical, and the Lafayette Grande played a large role in that. The setting was superb, my fiancee and I noticed that as soon as we stepped in about a year and a half before our wedding. As a history major and lover of beautiful architecture, as soon as we walked into the Crystal Ballroom I knew that I wanted elegance to be the theme, and this room to be the setting. What made it even more special was that the food was divine, and while it was a little pricier than some of the other places we looked at, it was worth the deliciousness that was the food, and the atmosphere. Plus, Greg gave us an extra discount on the large number of children who came :) There is no bad seat in the house. Even our friends who we had to put in the mezzanine told us how they felt that they had the best seats, even though they were "in the back". The waitstaff was nice and courteous the entire night. And the gentlemen who helped us from start to finish (Ryan and Greg I do believe) were awesome. From the moment we signed with them during which we received two free steaks and two bottles of wine, to the 2 tastings we went to, to the day of where we were served by Greg personally, we were blown away by the service. And the icing on the cake was that they sent us away with croissant sandwhiches and a bottle of champagne which we absolutely needed after a long night dancing and then hanging out in our hotel room before we went to the hotel and on to the airport a couple of hours later. The only thing that put a little glitch in the night was that our wedding cake wasn't cut until about an hour before the end of the night, and unfortunately due to us mingling with the guests and not paying quite enough attention we didn't notice until many of the guests had left. However, considering that was the only "bad" thing that happened over the course of the night, we'll take it!

From the moment we stepped through the doors to tour The Lafayette Grande we knew this place would be our reception venue We met with Greg that day and were impressed with his professionalism and friendliness. Everyone we spoke with or met with while planning our reception was amazingly nice. Greg's brother Ryan is in charge of catering - you can tell that he takes pride in the food they prepare and serve for each event at The Lafayette Grande. The venue is beautiful and old and so unique, all of our guests were blown away! They are still talking about it! The food was fantastic, but even better was the level of courtesy provided by all the servers, the bartenders, the security, and all the Lafayette Grande staff! That night several of the older guests commented on how helpful the parking lot attendants and doorman were when they arrived. The doorman even helped my grandfather find a private place to change out of his tux so that my father could return it for him because my grandparents had to leave early the next morning to go home. Book your reception at The Lafayette Grande and you will not be disappointed!! The food is amazing, the venue is unique and beautiful, and the staff is hands down the best staff I've ever dealt with at a wedding reception!

I had to move my date of my wedding by five months and they were extremely flexible about this after I had already given them the deposit. The only thing I could complain about is that It was extremely hot in my reception and two different people asked the management to turn the air on and the first time they said no. ( It was March) but it was so hot in there my cake was melting. Its very beautiful inside and most of the staff was great! The prices were good, The bartender was very rude to my guests I forgot about that.

I did love working with Greg, Rob and Ryan, however, their waitstaff on our night was less than desireable. We were told to leave when the bar shut down even though we have the hall for one more hour. I was also told I would be given the option to extend the bar the night of our wedding - that didn't happen. Perhaps the wait staff had something more important to get to after work....who knows. The food was good and it was easy to plan -but the help made the experience made super stressfull the night of...which is something no family wants. I was expecting that things would be 'taken' care of...not so much. I would recommend this venue but I would give a list of things to watch out for.

I loved working with Ryan and Greg at The Lafayette Grande. From start to finish the whole process was positive. They were always willing to hear concerns and work with you to find a solution. Their flexibility with things really made me feel like anything I wanted, was possible! We attended about 5 tasting nights they had, and always welcomed us back to try another dish. Their incentives were nice- A bottle of wine and 2 steaks! The building is an Old Masonic Temple, beautiful historical location. Such a gem! Over the 18 month engagement, I saw many improvements to the 100 year old building. They put a lot of time and money into repairing the old building and making things truly unique. I couldn't say more positive things about this place.

I didn't give them a 5 because I think they need to hire more staff for cleaning. Everytime I went in, there was dirt, dust, old wedding stuff laying around. I kept saying, I hope it doesn't look like this on my day...

I love the Lafayette Grande! They were so helpful. I was planning my wedding from out of state. My husband is Military so the planning of the wedding was a bit tricky. I was only in town 2 times before the wedding. They met me there with my husband a few days before Christmas so he could see it before our wedding day. Then when I came back into town a little bit closer to the wedding they met me there no problem for a food tasting. We almost had a slight problem when my husband was set to deploy during our wedding. When I called them that said no worries they would do what they could to help us out if the date had to be moved. Anything I could have asked for from them they did plus more! Thanks so much Lafayette

The Lafayette Grande Banquet Facility is located in the Downtown Pontiac Entertainment District in a historical landmark. Built in 1923 as the Masonic Temple Lodge No. 21 by European artisans and tradesman to resemble fine Royal Palaces from centuries ago. Traveling Chef Catering bought this neglected building from the City of Pontiac in 1997. The intricate craftsmanship of fine details has been restored to the original grandeur. Truly, making the Lafayette Grande Banquet Facility a unique experience and unlike any other venue! Certainly a hidden gem in Oakland County, Michigan!

Quality people! Quality food!

All of our guests commented on how nice the building was. The staff did a great job setting up our room. The food was EXCELLENT. They also hosted our Rehearsal Dinner and it was well worth the price of admission. The prices were the best we could find and we feel we got a steal.

Definitely not your average "cookie cutter" hall! The Lafayette Grande was the site of my 11/06/2010 wedding reception. I knew I had to book my party here when I took my then-fiance and my parents for a taste test last year. The food at the tasting was amazing, and my mother nearly cried when we visited the Crystal Ballroom on the 4th floor - an intimate and unique reception room styled as an elegant, 1930s-style dinner theater. The Kosch family and the staff at the Grande were great to work with, accommodating all of our requests and making sure our guests were well taken care of all night. Great value and top notch menu choices for both the rehearsal dinner and the reception - our family and friends raved about the food that was served. Thanks for helping us create a day to remember!

unique, elegant, out-of-the-ordinary wedding!!! i can"t say enough about our experience at my daughters reception at the Lafayette Grande! from our first visit and meeting with ryan, we were impressed with the personal treatment and pro-fessionalism of every person involved! they were willing to customize all aspects of the reception to our wishes. ryan and greg were always available to promptly answer any question or phone call... the facitlity is an undiscovered gem in the metropolitan area... the food was exceptionally good--wedding buffets usually are not expected to be impressive, but this one was! many choices and unique dishes. all the "extras" for an "out of season" wedding were a great added value...even without those extras, the value was exceptional! the guests especially loved the late night snack-- an unexpected surprise!

All I can say about this place is WOW WOW WOW! If you are looking for a unique and beautiful venue, you have to check the Lafayette Grande out! It's family owned, and you couldn't ask for nicer people.
Always easy to get ahold of, great prices, and great food! We got tons of compliments from our guests.
We had a blast at our wedding reception and a lot of it was because of the Kosch family and their employees.
Thank you guys for having such a wonderful place!

If I could select 10 stars, I would!! The best facility EVER!!! My wedding was flawless because of the wonderful staff at Lafayette Grande. My husband and I were married in their chapel on the 5th floor, then guests went to the mezzanine for cocktail hour, then everyone went to the 3rd floor to the Grande Ballroom for the reception. It was so wonderful to have everything right there! The food was fantastic (Salmon highly recommended), the drinks were well made, and the entire evening went extremely smooth, without any issue at all. And because the building is an old masonic temple and has so much detail and character, our wedding picts are absolutely amazing!! I can't say enough wonderful things about Lafayette and their staff!!!

Our reception was more than I dreamed it would be! The food was amazing! The owners made it a point to make sure we had everything we needed along the way. Any phone calls made were returned in only a few hours. With everything that we got at the reception, we STILL can in under budget! This was a wonderful facility to work with, many of our friends have already booked their receptions with them because of what we have said!

I love this place! It is so beautiful and the owners are great! We had a great wedding there and I would highly recommend them. I was unsure at first about having our wedding in Pontiac, but it worked out perfect and I would not have wanted to have it anywhere else.

I cannot say enough about the Lafayette Grande! The building is absolutely beautiful and unique - you won't find another one like it. We used the Crystal Ballroom for our reception and every guest told us how amazing it was. The food was unreal as well - every single thing was wonderful and again, we received a million compliments on it (highly reccommend the chicken paprikash!).

The most amazing thing about Lafayette was the staff though. Not just the event staff (awesome and very attentive!) but also the management. They were very flexible and very easy to work. It was clear that our needs were their top priority. I found them all to be very accomodating and responsive through the planning phase and even more so on the day of.

Not only were we blown away by the building, the food and the people but the price was just out of this world - significantly lower than other places we considered and they didn't nail us with a bunch of hidden stuff. It was all clear and up front.

You cannot go wrong with the Lafayette Grande!!!

I can't say enough great things about the Lafayette Grande. The owners are wonderful people who run an fantastic catering business and event venue. The building is so beautiful and unique and we fell in love with it almost instantly. The food is wonderful and there is a large menu to choose from. Greg Jr. was really great to work with. He was always organized, friendly, and available to us to answer any questions or concerns that we had. The big day went so smoothly and everything was exactly the way we had imagined it would be and I credit that to the staff at Lafayette Grande! We got a lot of compliments one finding such a unique and wonderful place to have our reception. I would recommend this venue to anyone!!
