Monte Cristo Ballroom made my entire wedding day magical! From start to finish they made everything so easy! They set up and take down all decorations as well as change over rooms! They literally take care of everything! Hillary and Jessica were AMAZING! Felt like one of my friends helping out! I am actually sad I won't talk to them anymore! Always making sure I had everything I needed! All of my guests raved about Chef Anthony's delicious food! Everyone said my wedding was the most fun they had every been too! Definitely worth the price! I could get married there over and over again! (To the same guy of course)! Thanks guys!

First, it was nice to have everything you need for a wedding located in one location. I didn't have to worry about paying more money for a wedding planner when the venue provided one. The amount of money spent was far less than what Richard and I would have spent if we were pay out separately for each different aspect of a wedding. The ballroom is also so beautiful and we especially liked that both my groom and I had our own separate space to get ready and prep for the wedding. The food was sublime and might we recommend that you pay for the plated dinner to get the full effect of fine dining for your wedding. We have no doubt that if you choose to go with the buffet dinner, the food will still be divine. There was nothing negative that had to be said about our wedding experience with the Monte Cristo Ballroom... the guests were equally impressed as we were with the whole experience. If you are looking for the whole package... minus a few minor details (flowers, etc), go with the Monte Cristo Ballroom for your venue. You are sure to have a memorable wedding day!

We recently had our wedding at the Monte Cristo. We would highly recommend them for anybody that is getting married. This venue is all inclusive, which made my wedding planning very simple. Any time I had questions, I just called and they were there to help me. We received several comments from our guests on how beautiful the venue was and also how good the food was. We are very happy we choose the Monte Cristo for our special day.

We were booked with the Monte Cristo Ballroom for a year and a half and that entire time they were incredibly responsive and accommodating. The venue itself is absolutely beautiful and I cannot express enough how much it was worth to us to have it be all-inclusive. The food is to die for and our guests gave us so many compliments. A great many people also mentioned how clear it was that everything went off without a hitch. Our day and our entire wedding planning process was 100% stress free due to their coordination and their ability to know what we needed before we did. Our day of coordinator Hilary was present, on point and unobtrusive through the whole process and really put us at ease. Ginny, our butler was absolutely amazing and helped us keep calm and organized. Our doorman, Joshua was so professional and clearly enjoys his job a great deal which was so fun to watch. I cannot stress enough how much I recommend this venue and all the services they offer.

OMG can I just say the Monte Cristo Ballroom is spectacular. Going from a horrible situation at the Manor our previous venue 6 months before our wedding to the Monte Cristo was a blessing. They made my special day absolutely perfect. From the moment we booked them they went right to work. They helped us with decoration ideas placement ideas anything you could think of they helped with. They made all the planning stress free and so enjoyable. I am actually so sad that the wedding is already over and I will have to go in and say hi every once in a while because they were that amazing to my husband and I and all of our family and friends. Oh and then our wedding day came and they did everything. They set up everything to perfection. One of our wedding coordinators even hand placed navy blue paper hearts that I cut out on each table. They figured out were to put things without even having to ask and their Butler service was a god send. I didn't lift a finger and just got to enjoy our special day. We also got nothing but rave reviews about the food which is spectacular. We told everyone to come very very hungry because it's so good its hard to stop eating. If you are getting married please please check out the Monte Cristo Ballroom they are THE BEST venue around and you would be crazy not to book with them. My husband are so happy we did and will recommend them to any and every couple we know. Thank you so much Monte Cristo Ballroom you guys are amazing.

We had the best day of our lives at this venue. By far the best service we could ever ask for. The level of quality, service, food, attention to detail and staff resemble a 5 star restaurant. The most common response from our guests, was "Wow, the food was amazing" or "the service by the staff was nothing short of excellent." It was almost like every table of guests received their own server, they wine glasses were always kept full, and everyone was given special attention, especially my husband and I! I could never have asked for more, and am so thankful we chose this venue. Jessica our wedding coordinator and day of coordinator handled all the details and made my visions come true; the venue just shined and was exactly how I dreamt it would look. Oh and I must give acknowledgment to our butlers, as my poor gal had to go on a wild goose hunt for eyelash glue that my makeup artist forgot to bring. Thanks Monte Cristo!

We couldn't have picked a better venue to have our wedding. The Monte Cristo Ballroom staff made the two of us feel like the only couple getting married there through the entire process. They provided us with a list of preferred vendors that guaranteed professionalism and perfection. We'd like to give thanks to our "Day Of" coordinator Jessica:) She was AMAZING!! She made sure that our special day went without a hitch. Thank you Chef Anthony and cooking staff for all the wonderful and delicious food that all our guests can't stop talking about. I wish we could relive our experience. We will always remember April 20th 2014.

My wife and I were recently married at the Monte Cristo Ballroom (MC) and I loved it and the services provided. I was able to also be a part of a friend's wedding a few months earlier and saw the MC in action. While my friends chose a plated dinner service, my wife and I went with a buffet style dinner.

My point is, the MC provides a range of service and style, while also providing the catering, day-of-coordinator, butler services for the bride and groom, along with many other little things that make (and made) the wedding fun, relaxing and unforgettable!

The MC has a list of preferred vendors for things like the DJ, videographer, photographer, etc. We (my wife) chose the DJ and videographer off the preferred list, but we chose to go with a photographer we knew of through my sister. The DJ and videographer were fun, professional, and very easy to work with. The staff at the MC were also very easy to work with. Going back to my friend's rehearsal, it seemed very smooth. Ours seemed less so because our families love to have side conversations all the time! But the day-of -coordinator had everything under control even though I felt like we barely got anything done. The quality and knowledge of the staff here is amazing!

Another reason why I love the MC is because my wife had to do most of the planning without me. As my work had me across the state, the MC took care of her and the planning in so good a way, that there seemed to be almost no stress leading up to the big day. To me, that was invaluable.

I got engaged Dec 21, 2012 in Wyoming. My home town is Seattle, so I made 5-6 Venue appointments and flew home. Monte Cristo was my first appointment and to cut to the chase I immediately signed a contract and cancelled the rest of my Venue appointments.

When I saw the Venue they also set up a Complimentary Tasting with their in house owner and cook. I have never been too impressed with wedding food, but when I ate this meal I was amazed and speechless. The best wedding food meal I have ever tasted. His rolls are to die for.

The Venue includes all the amenities in one. Appetizers, Food, Bar and Non-Alcholic Drinks, Linens, Invitations, Service and more. And the services they don't have on site are included in a recommended list provided to you. The vendors they recommend have personally worked with the Monte Cristo staff.

While researching prices in Seattle I was shocked to see that just renting the Venue without food or anything can cost $5,000 - $8,000 for the night. The Monte Cristo includes all their services in a convenient and reasonable price, and coming from Wyoming where things are drastically cheaper I was happy with the price.

The staff at the Monte Cristo are very professional and always answer my phone calls and emails right away. Planning my big day could not have gone more smoothly.

Also while researching Venues, the time you were able to spend in the Venues was limited, for example 3pm - 9 pm. The Monte Cristo is open from 11 am - 11 pm on Saturday. And there is a cute Irish Bar around the corner, so if your party must continue it is very easy.

Overall, as a Bride looking at Venues I stumbled upon the Monte Cristo and the photos were gorgeous, but the staff and services are even more stunning. I would recommend this Venue to all my friends and family.

I am so happy that I came across the Monte Cristo Ballroom:)

We were amazed at the value and attentiveness of the staff during the planning and the entire wedding day. The venue is beautiful, very unique compared to everywhere else we looked. The food is fantastic, all the guests were raving about the prime rib, salmon and chicken and the rolls are sent straight from heaven. The venue recommended a select variety of vendors (we could also go with our own) and everyone we selected from them was top notch, it really showed how much they care about your special day. They had so many small details on the day of taken care of before we could even think of it. I would highly recommend this place if you want a stress free (if that is possible) wedding. They were in contact just checking in and when I had a question the response was ALWAYS very quick, like within 24 hours. They made our day perfect, absolutely perfect.

They are an all-inclusive wedding venue and help with everything from the cake, to invitations, chair sashes, pillars, aisle runners, cake cutter, centerpiece vases, morning brunch, candy station, bar food at the end of the evening, and even a day of butler that helps you with whatever you need that day! You name it and they probably help with it!

The venue is beautiful, the staff is friendly and accommodating and you really will get the most bang for your buck while still presenting a very elegant and classy event.

Many friends had mentioned that I was the most calm bride they had ever seen and most of that is due to the help that the Monte Cristo provided! They really put your mind at ease. Look no further, this is the PERFECT wedding venue!

BTW, the food is excellent here!! Everything I was able to taste that day was delicious!

The Monte Cristo was the best choice my husband and I could have made. The service was well beyond what we imagined. Of course we had a few hiccups in our time line, but the staff at the Monte Cristo Ballroom helped us pull it off seamlessly. My husband forgot the cake (in Tacoma) so our personal butler got on the phone and arranged for cupcakes and a cake for cutting. No one ever knew the difference. I arrived to the venue 3 hours later than expected but I was rushed in the side door like I was the president. The food was delicious, Service was excellent, and the night went better than we ever imagined.

Look no further. Book your free appointment with Chef Anthony & Tawana today! Trust me, you will not need to look any further! We visited over 20 venues before finding Monte Cristo Ballroom. You will NOT be disappointed! We both wish we would of found them first, would of saved a lot of time and heartache. From the moment we walked in to do our free taste test dinner and tour, i was impressed. We arrived with 4 adults and 2kids. The MCB didn't miss a beat. They had sparkling apple cider waiting for the kids and champagne for the adults. Huge points for including the kids!
Jacob and i were also very impressed with the way everyone conducted themselves. From the day we met them to our wedding day, we have been treated like a Queen & King. Every detail was met, every request done, every question answered, no matter how small. All inclusive is the way to go & MCB is the best! The price may scare you at first, but truly its worth every penny and so much is truly included, no hidden costs! MCB was great at working out a payment plan with our deposit and final cost. Very helpful! We had our rehershal dinner @ MCB and the food & service was amazing!! Our wedding day was like a fairytale. The elegance and charm of the building is superb! The staff very friendly & professional! The food was better than anything we could imagine! We have received so many compliments on the food! Chef Anthony & his team rock! I truly appreciate the vegan meal that was prepared for myself & 2 others. Jeff, our day of wedding cordinator was amazing! Kept us all on track and moving to make sure we started the ceremony on time (4:06p.m.) to making sure we got all important photographs before our photographer left. We truly would get married at MCB again & again! And we can't wait to do business with them again! Please set up a time to meet Chef Anthony & Tawana! You will not be disappointed, it's free & amazing.

I chose the Monte Cristo Ballroom because i fell in love with the venue the first i saw it online. I was even more convinced that we had to have our wedding there after we met with one of the wedding coordinators and reserved the venue right away. It provided the most elegant atomosphere, delicious food and full wedding experience any bride would dream of and i was so blessed to have my wedding there.

The staff was so gracious and always were a step ahead to please all of our guests and my husband. We continually heard from our guests throughout the evening of how wonderful and courteous the staff was.

We were so blessed to have our wedding at The Monte Cristo Ballroom and recommend this venue to anyone who is getting married because you will not regret it.

I can't say enough about the Monte Cristo ballroom. I am an event planner myself on the side and this venue truly offers the best quality in service and wedding planning has to offer. My day of coordinator was FANTASTIC and she helped put me at ease many times. We really enjoyed our wedding day!

The weeks and days up to the wedding was wonderful interacting with MC staff. They were always responsive and answered all of my questions.

The all-inclusive nature of their venue also made SO MANY MORE things accessible AND convenient.

The venue is BEAUTIFUL. I keep getting compliments on the location as well!

I will NEVER forget this day!!! Thank you for the AMAZING food too. Chef Anthony ROCKS

The Monte Cristo Ballroom is a fantastic wedding venue. The facility is beautiful and spacious. The food was excellent. The level of service and professionalism was amazing and that really is what stands out for our family. Before the wedding we toured the facility, we tasted the food and we heard wonderful reviews. Even so, we weren't prepared for how great the wedding day would be. There were many, many staff available all day to handle any request we came up with. They handled the last minute decorations and preparations of the venue with the special items we brought in. They attended to the wedding party and guests all night. It is just a terrific venue and well worth every penny.

Overall, this venue was fabulous. There are always a few issues that come up along the way, but the true test is how those issues are resolved and their customer service is phenomenal! Chef Anthony and Tawana are great to work with. They show how much they truly care about you the client and their business by how they treat and serve.
An all-inclusive venue is just what I needed. I'm not much of a planner and the team at MCB helped me throughout the whole process. It's a great relief to know that my family and I didn't have to worry about set up, tear down, and cooking a meal for 200 people. This service obviously upped the price, but it was worth it and some venues charge the same amount without this service.
The venue itself is absolutely beautiful! I really appreciate that the whole day was set aside for us and we were given the freedom to use every room. This venue also offers a wonderful background for pictures! We made great use of the mezzanine and were actually able to take huge family pictures inside.
In closing, what I cared about most was fulfilled. I just wanted everyone to have a great time and all I heard about all night was how beautiful the wedding was and how great the food was. Big thanks to the Monte Cristo Ballroom. They really know how to throw a party!

The food was delicious and the service was excellent.
All our guest enjoyed it and found it an amazing wedding at an amazing place.

As I sit and reflect on all the pictures and everyone attending our wedding,I could not imagine it being anywhere else than at Monte Cristo Ballroom.

All inclusive venues are really hard to find and they made sure that everything was easy going and accessible from day one. I didn't have to go look for chairs, look for tables, look for invitations or cake vendors. They had all that ready for me. All I had to do was tell each vendor what I wanted and they made it happen.

Everything was so amazing and if there was a glitch in anything it was resolved right away and ended up being right where it needed to be. The service is great and tons of my guest came up to me and said "this is the best wedding I have ever been too." The venue kept them feed and liquored them up.
At the end of the night Chef Anthony was there and once I seen him me and my husband immediately ran up to him and give him a big hug and thank him for everything that he and his team did for us, it was truly the best day of my life.

The Monte Cristo Ballroom from the beginning they put their best foot forward when they presented us with the Free Tasting.
The food was amazing and we knew we wanted our guests to have the same experience we had when dining at the beautiful venue.
Chef Anthony and his wife worked with us and with our budget to have our dream come true wedding. The Wedding planning staff was very helpful in making sure to tie any loose ends that may been have missed.
The Butlers were extremely friendly and helpful, not only to the Bride and Groom, but also to our wedding party.
We can honestly say our wedding day flowed seamlessly and it was beyond beautiful.
Our guests commented on how beautiful the venue was and how the food amazingly great.

Thank you for making our Wedding Day very extravagant and delightful.

If you're looking for a wedding venue that is all inclusive then i would suggest the Monte Cristo Ballroom as they truly are an all in one venue. My husband and i were searching for a venue that was within our budget and i wanted a building that was all white so that my theme color would stand out more rather than a venue that has brown carpet, maroon walls and mixed colored chairs. When we found out that Monte Cristo includes table decor, unity candle set, money box, a choice of different vases, a variety of colored linens, chiavari chairs, a wedding cake, save the dates and wedding invitations we were blown away. I've never heard of any other venue that does that in the Snohomish or Seattle area and we knew we needed to book them as i could already feel that this venue was going to blossom faster than we know and become the number one venue in the area. We've had so many friends mentioning about our venue and are glad to say that we are one of the first among our friends to have celebrated our wedding at the Monte Cristo Ballroom. How can anyone pass an all in one deal that now includes DJ service, Wedding Cake, Stationary service (save the date & invitation) & wedding plan team and a chance to have a free rehearsal & rehearsal dinner for such an awesome price. The day of our wedding went smoothly and the staff took good care of our guests that even our guests talk about how well the staff worked together and how great the food tasted that majority of our friends say our wedding is by far the best wedding they've ever been to. I was so pleased to hear that our wedding was that good that i did not expect to hear that it was "the best" and it's all thanks to Monte Cristo Ballroom wedding planning team and the VENUE itself.

From the very beginning the Monte Cristo Ballroom was very helpful. A year ago we did a tasting and the food was amazing! Chef Anthony and his wife are dedicated to making your day special. We could not afford the initial down payment total so they were willing to work with us; making our relationship start off well from the beginning. Throughout the last year I could send emails to their wedding planning team with any questions and I would get a response back within the same day. The best part of the planning is they give you a packet of everything they offer and all you have to do is circle the things that you want and fax it back to them. So if you get stressed out easy this is the place to go because they make everything so simple. They also provided a rehearsal and dinner for us that was ran by their staff and we were able to be very productive and gave me more confidence for the day of the wedding. Every staff member was friendly and was there to make us feel comfortable. The day of the wedding ran flawlessly! If there was a problem with anything I did not know about it and I value that the staff is able to problem solve without stressing me (the bride) out. The food was just as amazing as the tasting and everyone was full and happy. I did not have a single complaint from any of my guests that their food was under par but rather was amazed that such great food was served at a wedding. The butlers that were with me and my groom all day were very helpful and always willing to bring us anything to make our wedding party comfortable as well. Even through dancing my dress was so big and fluffy a butler would come by and lay out my train and veil so it would look good in the pictures as well as made sure I was well hydrated and fed. As we were leaving they also packed up some cake and a meal for the road which was a nice treat after such a long day. All in all the Monte Cristo Ballroom team was amazing, flawless, and made my day a day to remember.

They also provided a rehearsal and dinner for us that was ran by their staff and we were able to be very productive and gave me more confidence for the day of the wedding. Every staff member was friendly and was there to make us feel comfortable. The day of the wedding ran flawlessly! If there was a problem with anything I did not know about it and I value that the staff is able to problem solve without stressing me (the bride) out. The food was just as amazing as the tasting and everyone was full and happy. I did not have a single complaint from any of my guests that their food was under par but rather was amazed that such great food was served at a wedding. The butlers that were with me and my groom all day were very helpful and always willing to bring us anything to make our wedding party comfortable as well. Even through dancing my dress was so big and fluffy a butler would come by and lay out my train and veil so it would look good in the pictures as well as made sure I was well hydrated and fed. As we were leaving they also packed up some cake and a meal for the road which was a nice treat after such a long day. All in all the Monte Cristo Ballroom team was amazing, flawless, and made my day a day to remember. Read less

What can I say, this day has been in the planning stages for years and to see it all pulled off and so beautifully orchestrated was such a relief! The Monte Cristo Ballroom most definitely exceeded expectations. The venue was fresh and clean and every detail was perfect! From the sashes on the chairs, the settings and decor, to the attentive, yet not annoying, service, our butlers, the coordinators, it was all top notch! The food was excellent and the to go bag we received as a little extra was unexpected and wonderful. I have nothing but a glowing review for this venue. Save yourself the stress and choose this place for sure! You will not be disappointed!

My husband and I recently got married at the Monte Cristo ballroom. This all inclusive venue is the way to go!! My day of coordinator and the staff were AMAZING. I was able to relax on my wedding day while everything was being done for me. My older brother and sister have already been married, and I remember the stress for my family with all the planning and prep work. The Monte Cristo took care of all that! It was amazing to finally have a celebration where my whole family was able to come and relax and enjoy the party, instead of working the wedding. Also, THE FOOD IS AMAZING!! I got more commitments on the food than almost anything else.

I docked the half a star for flexibility because the Monte Cristo prefers their own list of approved vendors. While I kept with the list in the DJ (who came with a photo booth) and the videographer; we went with an outside photographer. When he visited the MC, they were very clear he was not to move any furniture for photos. That said, the DJ and staff were very flexible with our timeline (we ended up leaving an hour early). The DJ still got all the songs we wanted in before we left, and the staff had extra food prepared for us by the time we left as well.

Overall, I would recommend the Monte Cristo to everybody, while it might be a bit pricier than another venue, the quality and peace of mind for your special day is so much more than worth it!

The Monte Cristo was amazing to work with! From day one when I did my tasting, until I was out the door with my to-go dinner after my wedding, everything went so smoothly. The Monte Cristo put so much effort into every little detail to make sure my wedding was perfect, and I appreciated it so much. There was always a staff member available to answer questions, provide directions, or lend a helping hand the day of and that relieved so much of my stress. They were a joy to work with and if I could do it all over again, I would because it was so beautiful and so much fun. The Monte Cristo is the prefect venue and I would recommend it to any bride. You will fall in love!

Since the day I went here for my tasting, the staff was extremely friendly and proactive to my wishes and ideas. The wedding planning staff was interactive and engaged to make this night special for me and my husband. They were very accommodating to my mother who is in a wheelchair.

The food is amazing, especially when we chose the buffet layout. They kept it hot, fresh and full! The venue offers many different options.

This place really is all-inclusive. The decor packages they offer is extensive and beautiful. The fire place and the chandelier are breath-taking. I would recommend this venue for your wedding day.

The staff were extremely friendly and helpful to all our guests and were spot on helping to make the day perfect. They took my ideas for center pieces and did all the work for me so I could relax and enjoy the day.

My husband and I were extremely happy that we chose this venue and would recommend it to anyone!!!

The food was delicious prepared and presented with class. The serving was coordinated were all the guests ate the same course at the same time. The quality of the food was tops.

This is a great venue with so much included in their package and we would highly recommend the Monte Cristo Ballroom to perspective brides and grooms.

Thank you again to the owners Tawana and Anthony and to the staff for giving us a happy experience in our special day.

We were incredibly satisfied with all interactions with the staff and owners of the Monte Cristo Ballroom. They provide an all-inclusive venue for brides, supplying invitations, menus, plenty of linen and tableware options, ceremony and reception decor- everything you can think of! It makes wedding planning a breeze. Their staff was attentive and professional, especially the night of the wedding. You can tell they all really care about making your wedding a perfect event for you. Also, the space has a great flow for all the activities and is absolutely gorgeous. The food is good and they have tons of menu options. They also have a great selection of wines and beers on tap! Many people came up to me during the wedding and said it was the best wedding venue they had been to! If you want a beautiful venue that takes away a lot of the stress of wedding planning then this is the place for you! The only thing we had difficulty with was planning a rehearsal here. It was scheduled for the Thursday before and they had to reschedule us to Wednesday; however we had members of the bridal party flying into town that couldn't make it in that early. We just ended up doing our rehearsal at a restaurant. I was a little worried about the ceremony running smoothly without practicing in the actual space but the MC staff was so organized that it went perfectly!

Everything from the food to dressing rooms was amazing! All my guests loved their dinners and thought the venue was beautiful! My only critiques would be:
1. Not enough time to get ready in the morning--I wish i could have showed up earlier to start doing hair and makeup.
2. When my husband and I were told to do the cake cutting ceremony we were basically thrown to the wolves and had no idea what we were suppose to do, some direction would have been nice!
3. Again for the rehearsal dinner there was not much communication as to what we should be doing and we were rushed out of there because there was another rehearsal right after us--maybe they should not plan on having multiples on the same day...
4. A note about their "no outside liquor policy" should be known before hand--my husband bought a very nice bottle of scotch for him and his groomsman for right before the ceremony but it was taken away and never got to do his cheers. (He got it back at the end of the night)

All in all, I would hands down recommend this venue to anyone who asks. It is a little pricey but I think it was worth it!

My husband and I fell in love with this gorgeous venue when we were there for our tour and tasting and signed the contract right away. We had our wedding on July 18, 2014 and the entire event was amazing and we would do it all over again. This venue is all-inclusive which makes it not only affordable, but also convenient with planning and organizing all the logistics since everything can be done at the same place. My husband and I had a few small surprises along the way during the planning process and sometimes the staff wasn't flexible or empathetic with our needs. However, Anthony stepped in and took care of things. He is understanding and accommodating. TIP: make sure you read your contract in full detail and get everything that you want written down before you sign it.

The only thing that I didn't like was there wasn't a bathroom near the bridal changing room and the lights in the bar area could not be turned off/dimmed and we couldn't get music to play in there either.

We truly enjoyed our wedding day and had so much fun. The decorations were beautiful, the food was excellent and the staff was attentive. It was great to have our own butlers and the doorman was a bonus too! All of our guests raved that it was one of the best weddings that they've been to and they all loved the food and had a wonderful time. Anthony and Tawana run a pretty tight ship and I highly recommend this venue to any couple who is looking for a beautiful venue that is a one-stop shop which provides great food and service.

Thank you to Anthony, Tawana and the entire staff at the Monte Cristo Ballroom for making our day truly magical, memorable and fun for us and all of our guests! ;-)

My lovely wife and I had our wedding there at the Monte Cristo Ballroom 3 weeks ago on October 19th and we can truly say that we would recommend ANYONE to get married there!! From DAY 1 when you first schedule a night to take a tour with a free complimentary meal and price break down of the 3 choices you have for how you want to have your dinner go on your wedding night, with price breakdown too. Was by far the deal breaker for my wife and I to chose this place right there on the SPOT!!!

Far as the process from when you book the venue till the day of your wedding, you will get top notch services from your wedding cordinator and when you have a question that comes up along the way, they answer you promptly. There are so many bells and wistles that comes with the booking your wedding with this place, but let me tell you the fact that your save the dates, invitations, cake and chairs and linens and all other goodies comes in your ALL INCLUESIVE package!!! Shoot there's no way you can go wrong with this place!!! One of the best things I can say about this place is the FOOD!!!! They provide there own catering and the wife and I recieved more compliments about the food and service then anything else.

So future wedding venue hunters, I can't stress and strongly suggest any other venue for your wedding day, other then the MONTE CRISTO BALLROOM, I GURANTEE YOU CAN'T GO WRONG!!!

The level of service that is provided at the Monte Cristo Ballroom has exceeded our expectations. Customer service in the world we live in today is pretty much non-existent; however, at the Monte Cristo it is like taking a step back into the days where superb customer service thrived. The food at the initial tasting, rehearsal dinner and our wedding was absolutely delicious. All of the staff members were very friendly, personable, and attentive. The butlers absolutely went above and beyond for my wife to help relieve stress and assist with anything she needed.

The Monte Cristo Ballroom was the perfect venue for my wedding. My husband and I had to plan the whole thing in only 6 weeks due to some family health issues but the Monte Cristo was very flexible and helped us get everything rolling. The venue itself was beautiful and the set up crew was very helpful. The food was incredibly tasty--everyone loved the way it was presented, the large portions, and especially the flavor. The bar food buffet and the bridal party buffet was wonderful and great for all of the party and close family because there wasn't any time to eat before the ceremony. I docked them a star on professionalism because 2 weeks before the wedding, the person I was working with was let go. That said, Debra, the woman that was assigned to my event afterward was wonderful and very good at contacting me and getting back to me with answers. All in all, the Monte Cristo was a fantastic investment. I am the first of my friends to get married and the Monte Cristo helped me set a very high bar.

Our wedding went without a hitch. The staff at the Monte Cristo Ballroom were on top of every aspect of our wedding. We couldn't be happier with the choice we made in choosing the MCB. We chose this venue because it was an all inclusive venue and that is what we wanted was a place that took care of everything. The vendors that they recommend were also excellent choices. All in all we had a perfect wedding due to the professionalism of the MCB staff and would recommend this venue to anyone that I know is getting married.

Thanks for an excellent wedding,
Joe and Graham

We never thought we would have such a stress free wedding. Seeing our siblings grow and marry, we always thought that a wedding is an extremely stressful event. We can both honestly attest to the fact that although there was allot to cover, the Monte Cristo Ballroom made is a absolute breeze. With preferred vendors, ideas, a wedding planning team, paid invitations and a ton of useful ideas, they had made our wedding planning easy!

There is no reason why we would pick absolutely any other venue or catering. The food was fantastic, up to the standards of a chef even (myself) and the kitchen took this into consideration. They were amazing, flexible and unforgettable.

We would like to thank the Chef and management staff for unforgettable service and an awesome wedding.

When I first booked the Monte Cristo Ballroom, it was a year and a half ago, early in my engagement. I decided right away that I didn't want to have to worry about family and friends cleaning up at the end of my wedding night - picking this venue was the best thing I could have done. My family and friends have all raved about the food, service, look of the venue and everything else about my wedding. I've had guests tell me that it was the best wedding they have been to.
They say that things go wrong on your wedding day and honestly, we had 1 slip up, that had nothing to do with the venue. When the owners found out about it, they were going to do whatever it took to get the issue remedied. Even when there was some conflicting information regarding my rehearsal and dinner, they went out of their way to ensure that we got something on their schedule that worked for us and them, even if it wasn't a normal time that they typically offer rehearsals.
Overall, I cannot say enough great things about this venue. I researched and researched some more when I was trying to plan my wedding and am so glad I get to now write my raving review on this venue and staff.

First off, let me say I knew I was a difficult bride. I was a hot mess the entire wedding planning process, and I didn't make it any easier on myself by adding DIY super detailed decor. It also didn't help that all of our closest friends decided to all get married in the same four month summer period in 2014. I saw a lot go wrong in our friend's weddings, which made me pretty paranoid for our own. The Monte Cristo Ballroom humbly proved all my doubts wrong on August 30th, 2014. They executed our decor perfectly. The food was hands down the best wedding food I ever ate. The flow of the night was seemless. The staff treated our bridal party like royalty. Hillary (Hilary?), our day of coordinator, was SO detailed oriented and made us feel so comfortable leaving all the responsibilities in her hands. At our rehearsal dinner, I appreciated her focusing on the small things, like how the groomsmen should place their hands, and how fast we should be walking down the aisle. We chose the Monte Cristo Ballroom because they let us know they contracted with the best vendors are the most affordable prices, without compromising quality. ALL of that is entirely true. We're still on cloud nine over our wedding experience. Thank you so much, Monte Cristo, for making our wedding memorable for the rest of our lives.

The food is amazing nothing close to the regular wedding food there's actually flavor to it! The fact that it's all inclusive is even better they take a lot of the stress of planning off your back. Very glad with the decision of the venue. I can't wait for the day!

This is a wonderful venue and the service is incredible. A great value and the food is to die for. Guests get to order their menu choice at the table... no need to select far in advance, and each table has their own waiter. What service!
When all of your guests are so complementary of a venue, you know that it was really special.
The staff is very well trained and no detail was too small to receive their full attention.

The Monte Cristo was an absolute dream to have as our wedding venue! They offer more services than any other vendor in the area, hands down, and go above and beyond to make wedding days spectacular! They are very organized, and I feel really care about making sure you have the best experience possible, and great price! Our guests raved about the food and my (the bride) day of butler was wonderful to both me and my groom, we didn't go without for even a minute! The planning team was quick to respond, there are a few of them working with you the entire time! In the beginning though, it felt as if I had to re-explain what I needed if I spoke to someone new on the team, which was frustrating, as I was interested in only speaking with one person the entire process. However, I voiced my concerns with the staff, and they worked to solve the issues I shared, and I did not have a problem again! Would highly recommend this venue and their services!

We had our wedding here and they did a great job. It is nice for the all inclusive venue. We were assigned a 'wedding coordinator' when we signed our contract and by the time our wedding day came we were on our third coordinator, the other two had quit. Needless to say it was a little nerve racking to have that happen.

The food was great, and we received many compliments from those who attended. I did feel like they forced us to have a dinner that was way to long. They want at least 90 minutes for dinner (we had a sit down dinner) and it ended up lasting almost 2 and half.

My wife and I were assigned a 'butler' to assist both her and myself. This was a nice touch.

Read your contract carefully and get everything in writing with them as their venue is constantly under renovation and their guidelines constantly change. They have vendors that they prefer but you don't have to use them (cake, invitations, etc) we did not go with their cake vendor, they were unprofessional to say the least.

It was a great venue, great food, good value, nice to have a majority of things taken care of in one shot. Just read the fine print, there were a handful of contract 'mistakes' that we caught and had them fixed. If we did not they would have held our feet to the fire.

Just got married here August 16th of this year. My wedding day was everything I dreamed of! The venue was perfect and beautiful the food is outstanding and out of this world and my wedding coordinator for the day Maddy, was the best coordinator I bride could ask for. The reasoning behind the 4 stars is because I had someone different every time I went in for an appt to help me and every time we went to see my table settings and talk decor, a different girl each time from the front desk had my table completely wrong and when I asked for something specific it was made out to seem like a huge deal so I was really nervous things were going to be a little off. But! The day of my rehearsal I met Maddy and I was so excited again for my wedding day! And she made everything flow and the team I had that day was accommodating and amazing and kept us very very very happy! They truly went above and beyond!! We left with smiles and tears because of them. I couldn't have asked for a better day!!!! It was seriously perfect! On point, on time, and beautiful. Thanks monte Cristo!

Monte Cristo Ballroom responded with the following comments:

At the Monte Cristo Ballroom, we do everything we can to accommodate our brides, grooms and their guests. We have excellent reviews to support our success and desire to ensure our brides have a smooth planning process and perfect wedding.

There are several reasons why we do not choose to assign a specific wedding planner to a bride throughout the entire process. An example, Madison is assigned to a couple , but she needs days off. If they were to come in or call and she was not working we would not be able to assist them because no other planner knows about the wedding details. Here at The Monte Cristo Ballroom we hire wedding planners with different personalities to be able to suit as many brides as possible. It was felt that Madison would be the best match and that is why she started the planning process. We give our clients the flexibility to request a certain wedding planner as well as requesting their work schedule so that they may work around the wedding planners days off but this was never requested. At the end of the day, this process worked wonderfully and it was an excellent wedding, yet we only received 4 stars. Again, please read our reviews and see how well this process has worked for our brides. Our reviews fully support this.

Our wedding at the Monte Cristo Ballroom was wonderful! They worked with me the whole way, and made sure that I got what I wanted. I wish they had been more helpful with planning the reception. I felt everyone was confused and did not know where to go next. They paid a lot more attention to getting people in the door than what happens afterwards. Overall, it was a great value. I would book there again. Just remember that aside from their specific job they don't really help you. We had to bring in all of our own equipment for the music and set it up ourselves. They also have a requirement that you have to spend $10k or more to book, so I would advise smaller weddings to look elsewhere.

My day was truly stress free thanks to the staff at MCB. The food was delicious and the staff was on the ball. My only comment is that I felt the staff had no authority, everything I asked had to be run up the chain (even simple things like opening the door at the reception for a few minutes to cool everyone down). If I had to do it again, I would work with the MBC again.

We went to the tasting, enjoyed most of the food, the desserts were ok, nothing to brag about. The planning process, up to our wedding was tough because we live about an hour and fifteen minutes away from the venue, all the planning was done via email and phone. They were pretty responsive and had normal business hours. When we booked the venue the cake was included oh my the cake at the wedding was a huge hit... The Food at the venue everyone was expressing how good and that there was so much variety and food tasted amazing. The only compliant I have about the venue is that if they tell you something make sure its in writing and that the venue charges for children 2 years old and older, So we paid 36/ child, and the chef at booking told us that we would work something out if we had alot of kids under 12 which we did nearly 20 kids, and then he said well i looked through my papers and I don't see that anywhere in my paperwork. I just let it go, because I felt like there was no resolution there. At the wedding the crew was great until, they tried to close the bar early and told us shots were not included in the drink choice, in our contract it said the bar would have a last call at 1030p and no limitations on shots or different drink types, since i had a guest count of 160, they tried to close the bar at 930p, I think because our guests were drinking more than they expected. The lead planner didn't even tell us she was closing the bar we had guest come up to us and ask if the reception is ending early, because the planner was telling them that its done... When I went to her I explained to her that the bar was suppose to stay open and last call is suppose to be at 1030 and bar closes at 1045 per our contract, she just stated well I called the owner, the resolution was unprofessional we were told that the premium bar was gifted and thats why they closed it early. Not good to be an indian giver, but the event went smoothly only one compliant, everything else went great.

Monte Cristo Ballroom responded with the following comments:

My name is Anthony and I am the owner of the Monte Cristo Ballroom. We would like to apologize that your wedding did not go the way you planned. You are absolutely correct; we do not serve straight shots of alcohol during weddings. We adopted this policy to help protect our brides from having any issues with overly intoxicated guests. By state laws our bar completely closes at 10:30pm, a full half hour before the establishment’s closing. We typically do a last call at 10:00pm but during a large volume wedding (such as this one) we try to have last call earlier in the night to make sure everyone has a chance to get another drink before we are legally required to stop pouring. We would not close the bar earlier than 30 minutes before the end of an event. For our buffets we provide a lower per person rate and charge the same for people over the age of two. With this method, food consumption evens out and everyone is happy. We like to treat children the same as any other member of the family by providing them with the same level of service and food quality, even if that means preparing special children's meals.

This vendor used to be Brown's Catering. When I purchased the vendor, it was a year before the wedding. My husband and I sampled the food and met with Chef Anthony.

I will say that Chef Anthony is a dear. I really like him and I was very pleased with the initial visit and food sampling. The food was awesome.

Where things broke down is when Brown's Catering went out of business and moved to Everett to assume the name Monte Cristo Ballroom. This transition was not handled professionally. The website that I had been following just stopped in August. They closed down the original location where I had my tasting. They did not offer a forwarding address and even the landlord didn't know where they went. Also the email address I had for them was completely non-responsive and the phones were disconnected. So needless to say, when my wedding was a month away, I could not find them.

Apparently they started sending email with their new name sometime in October, but of course, my spam blocker caught that email, Monte Cristo, and didn't let it through, I didn't recognize that name, and no one tried to push the email through so I thought they had skipped town with my deposit.

Finally someone called my home phone in November, literally the day I was putting a deposit down on another vendor for catering, asking for final payment! I was wondering why they didn't just call my home phone earlier. Anyway, it all worked out, with a bit of stress from the bride.

Now, the day of the wedding. I will honestly say that they did a wonderful job. The food was very good, the staff professional and attentive and I will say that I had a butler, Jina, and she was AMAZING. It was worth it all just to have her there with me. She followed me around everywhere and proactively attended to my every need. A bride to be, doesn't realize how important it is to have someone like her there. She was my personal companion all day long. LOVE HER.

So while there was definitely a breakdown in communication when they changed locations, I want to say that I would still recommend them.

My 6 year old flower girl was kicked out for having outside food in the venue before dinner.

Monte Cristo Ballroom responded with the following comments:

Please read this review.
This is absolutely correct. Here at The Monte Cristo Ballroom we strive for perfection. If you look at our reviews, they are raving. We have measures in place to protect our clients, guests and staff that unfortunately not everyone understands initially or agrees with.

Our wonderful staff starts wedding preparations beginning at 6am the day of the event. Our hours for events are 11am-11pm, given this great amount of time it is impossible to have these coordinators work the full 17 hours in which they are needed, therefore more than one is scheduled per event. To make this transition smoother we insure that these 4 wedding planners all work with brides and grooms closely throughout the year to make it more comfortable for everyone.
At The Monte Cristo Ballroom we keep a large variety of food on hand to accommodate children; cheeseburgers, jello, fruit, chicken, fries etc. This is to prevent outside food from needing to be brought into the building. This measure is put into place as well as into the contract to protect everyone. If outside food is brought in, consumed and/or shared and food poisoning occurs we would be responsible for this. We do this to protect ourselves and others.
We are in the party business and understand that people want to get buzzed and have a great time. We fully encourage everyone enjoying themselves while consuming alcohol, however there are times when things have gone too far and we need to stop serving alcohol to certain individuals or completely shut down the bar service. An example would be when clothes are beginning to be removed. What was done was illegal and insidious. We have a reputation and a license that we strive to keep so for this reason we felt it necessary to stop serving certain individuals to protect everyone.

We have excellent reviews with the last 40 people giving 5 stars. We work hard throughout the entire process to do everything we can to accommodate not only our brides and grooms,
