We had both our wedding and reception here and it was a wonderful experience. The biggest thing for us was how accommodating they were to us. We changed plans several times, asked so many questions and had so many requests and LUC met them all. They even stayed late for our rehearsal. Honestly, we are so appreciative to them for their help and responsiveness.

We had an incredible wedding reception here! It's a little pricey, but oh so worth the money! The food was delicious (OMG the Mac and cheese), as was the cake. We did catering/bar, bakery, and floral all in house so we didn't have to worry about clean up of those items. The coordinators were professional, responsive, and extremely helpful. They gave us great recommendations for the DJ and photobooth.

Overall, the entire planning process of the wedding was smooth and stress-free thanks to the lovely LUC employees. We had a LUC coordinator there the night of who helped us keep the reception flowing smoothly, which was much appreciated. We couldn't imagine trying to handle that ourselves. We were able to focus on ourselves and the guests and just enjoy the moment.

Also, the location itself is stunning. If you're having your reception in the evening or at night, the candle package is worth it - trust me! :)

I reached out to LUC Bakery to do our wedding cake, which was a 3-tiered, naked styled cake, topped with berries. My consultation with Kevin went smoothly! He was easy to walk with and clearly answered any questions that I had. Communication between LUC and I was great! When I wanted to add another tier to our cake, they responded quickly and made the change on our order form. We were so pleased with our cake! It arrived on time and looked beautiful! Not to mention, delicious! We went with their pear almond cake with Bavarian cream mousse and it was delicious! Our guests were pleased with the cake and so was I.

We got married in April 2016 and held both our ceremony and reception at Lake Union Cafe, and we could not be any happier with our choice! We wanted to have a low-stress day, and LUC provided exactly that. The venue itself is very pretty, so there's not pressure to provide an exorbitant amount of decorations. The staff was incredibly professional yet friendly, and the entire day was executed perfectly. We definitely expected SOMETHING to go wrong, but everything went by smoothly without a single hitch. The food was absolutely delicious, and we ordered a cutting cake and mini cupcakes from the bakery which were also awesome. Many of our guests told us it was one of the best weddings they had ever been to. At the end of the night the wait staff was extremely flexible and accommodated us when we wanted to add an extra hour to the night. We have nothing but positive things to say about LUC!

I just got married at the Lake Union Cafe a few days ago and it was a fabulous experience. The venue is beautiful and the event ran like clockwork. I've never planned a big event before and the event coordinator, Tasia, made the process very smooth. I have a medical condition that makes it difficult for me to stand for very long and they were very accommodating of this. After a year of planning, I expected a few things to go wrong on the big day, but nothing did. I would absolutely recommend the Lake Union Cafe to anyone who was getting married or just looking to host a large event.

Many people said that it was the best wedding they'd ever been to. I never thought a wedding could be so stress-free! Everything was spot on! They totally delivered. Total pros. Excellent value. The venue was gorgeous and seemed to look even more beautiful that day than I had ever seen it before. BEST cake I've ever eaten in my life.
My only wish was that I would have left with a plate of food in hand at the end of the night. You NEVER get to eat at your own wedding and I was absolutely starving when we left! A to-go box should be policy for all venues! :) Or at least a nice touch.

Lake Union Cafe is an amazing venue!

We had a small budget, but a winter wedding, and we weren't seeing a way to make the two agree. Indoor location, caterers, decorations, place settings... it all seemed like we would have to get uncomfortably creative or spend way more than we had to work with.

Then we found LUC! The location is gorgeous, the food is amazing and it's staffed by some of the most considerate, professional people I've ever worked with. They rolled with all our requests, responded to our messages quickly and thoroughly, and were incredibly helpful when it was clear we had no idea what we were doing. I've spent the last several months singing their praises to anyone who will listen.
