We had our reception at Park Prive. We started our process with one coordinator that seemed hassled to have us around when we met with her. They were very inflexible about the time the event could start and end. Fortunately, the space was the perfect size for our party so we dealt with the inconvenient time. The food was also tasty.
We tried to keep contact and at one point no one would return our emails. As it turned out, the first lady left the company and no one had picked up our account. After some urging we got another meeting with a new rep and it turned out the first lady wrote our reservation wrong only assigning one waiter for the entire wedding instead of one per table. Luckily the new rep ate her associate's mistake and we didn't have to bear that burden.

A lovely setting, but absolutely terrible service. The coordinator we signed up with was taken away and her replacement was an absolute nightmare! Attention to detail was nil, no one was at the event that day to do any coordination, the place lost the table and guest name cards that we had given to them so family had to sort everything out - this was the coordinator's job! Food was wonderful, but the service was terrible. The wait staff was too few and very disorganized. Billing was a nightmare too - we had to fight to get money back as the menu we agreed on, they did not make some of the items, but still wanted to charge us for. Until this place gets new staff, I would not recommend them to anyone!

Park Prive has EXCELLENT food and they have no problem getting creative with food. For example, I gave them a list of salad ingredients I liked and they came up with a brand new salad for my wedding.

I had some issues with communication before the event because the coordinator I had been working with quit a month before the wedding, so I had to go over everything again with a different coordinator, but she was great.

On the day of the event the staff was friendly and extremely professional. One of the waiters passing around appetizers noticed that I was hungry so she kept swinging by me on purpose with my favorite appetizer. The staff worked hard to get all 320 guests served quickly. And the head waiter got me whatever I wanted at any time

I knew Park Prive was the place for me the second I saw it, and boy was I right. The whole venue was just totally US. (And everyone said so all night) Our guests went crazy for it. I had guests getting business cards from the catering manager during my reception so they could contact her later about their own events. The setup of the garden and the rooms was perfect for my wedding and I got SO many compliments from guests about the modern look, and how glad they were to see something other than the typical hotel ballroom (which is exactly what I was hoping for). The venue was a total hit, and the best part is, modern means minimalist, so there is no decoration you have to do to make the place shine. It looks great just the way it is.

Not only was the venue a hit with the guests, but so was the food. Patina food is AWESOME! We got the chicken, but it was so far from typical wedding chicken, so it wasn’t boring for the guests at all. I made sure to eat LOTS of it…it was so yummy! As we made our rounds from table to table during the reception, almost everyone made a point to tell us how much they loved the food. From the way they were talking, it sounded like Patina could have cooked up a spare tire from the back of someone’s car, and people still would have raved about it. In addition to the chicken, we had 4 passed appetizers during cocktail hour, which were also a hit.

The staff at Park Prive was unbelievable! The service was beyond excellent. They were so great to work with during my planning, and the day of they had so many people working and taking care of us and our guests. Every time I turned around, someone was there asking me if I needed anything. All my guests were taken care of all night. It was such a great experience at a great place.
