The Poughkeepsie Grand and their staff could not have been more curious and accommodating throughout the wedding planning process. Over the two years of planning our contact Tara learned and walked us through exactly what we where looking for from start to finish. We could not be happier with the outcome and had the best night of our life's with no stress at all knowing they had ever detail under control. If you haven't booked your venue yet look no further and give Tara a call.

My Husband and I decided to have our reception at the Poughkeepsie Grand Hotel based off of our first meeting with Gina. She was so easy to deal with and never made me feel like I was a bother to her. Since the day we got married I am still getting compliments on how wonderful our wedding was and how good everything was. I can't say enough good things about this place. All the staff that we dealt with was awesome.

We got married on November 22, 2013 at the Poughkeepsie Grand Hotel and we both highly recommend having your wedding reception there. We also got married on the premises and it was gorgeous and perfect. After having several family members who got married at the Grand, we knew it was the perfect place. Not only is the food great, but everything is beautiful and so convenient. It was great that our guests could simply go upstairs after the party! Tara was our coordinator and she was great to work with! Everything went off without a hitch and we have the Poughkeepsie Grand staff to thank!

We had our reception at the Grand Hotel and it was great. I am going to break it down into sections:

Hotel and Planning:
I planned our wedding from 600 miles away and Tara, our coordinator, was super friendly and always got back to me any time I had any questions or concerns. She made sure that everything was taken care of in advance so that I didn't have to do anything except show up. The rooms at the hotel were reasonably priced for our guests and the hotel was extremely accomodating with any concerns or questions we had. The hotel has a large variety of packages and price ranges to accommodate all brides and budgets. Our package included our cake, flowers, and suite and everything was perfect and easily arranged. My husband and I had a perfect evening and really truly enjoyed ourselves.

Service: Our maitre'ds, Mitchell and Andrew, were outstanding. They were there with us and our families the whole night to make sure everything was perfect. The staff was also very professional and helpful for our guests. The bar tenders were very nice and friendly and did a great job with the drinks. Everyone was there working together and knew exactly what they were doing and everyone was on the same page. Everyone was very professional the entire night.

Food: Everything was perfect. The food was great and there was soooo much of it. We got the Diamond package and everyone loved the cocktail and Viennese hours that we got. We had guests of all ages and everyone was satisfied. We also had a few people with food allergies and they had no problem accommodating us at all. Everything was delicious.

In conclusion, we literally had people calling us the next day telling us what a great experience it was and how great everything was and several people said it was the best wedding they'd ever been too and my husband and I agree.

We had our ceremony & reception at the Poughkeepsie Grand and were more than pleased. Since the majority of our guests were coming in from out of town, we loved that everyone could enjoy themselves, then go upstairs to their own rooms.

Neither my husband or myself are from Poughkeepsie, but we were so impressed with the hotel and staff that we decided to go for it. We worked with Gina throughout the entire process, and she was a pleasure to speak with and be around. Very helpful and very attentive to our needs and questions.

The day of, we worked with Maitre D - Andrew, and head waiter - Sara. They were both FANTASTIC. So much fun and SO on top of everything. It was wonderful.

Our guests were so impressed with the setting, decorations, food, service - this will definitely be something they will be talking about for years to come. It was by far the best day of our lives! Worth every penny :) Hope we come back to the hotel for one of our anniversaries :)

My husband and I would like to personally thank Maureen Kangas general manager of the Poughkeepsie grand hotel for connecting us with her banquette manager Michelle Neesen. As many people would agree planning a wedding can be stressful enough, but as we are local, the bride and wedding party were not. Coming from Ohio this could have made planning even more of a challenge. As I have attended many events at the grand we encouraged her to have her very special day there. With that being said special it was, from the helpful planning to the wonderful service and convient accommodations this was truly the wright decision. Special thanks to the Stephon and Brianne as they treated all all of us like royalty for a day!

Overall, we had an excellent experience having The Poughkeepsie Grand Hotel as our Wedding Reception venue. My husband and I have been to a few weddings here before and have had several positive recommendations for The Grand, so we were not worried at all having them do our reception. Michelle was our wedding coordinator and she was very professional, friendly, responsive and helpful in all of the planning aspects leading up to the wedding day. Michelle made sure that everything ran smoothly and that the reception was beautiful. She was always detail oriented and easy to reach. Andrew our matre d was very friendly, well-organized and knowledgeable. He also made our reception run smoothly and provided excellent service to our bridal party, family and guests. It was very convenient having our reception here because we did not have to worry about our guests drinking and driving because the reception is in the hotel. Having our reception there was also a perk for those who had to travel because all they had to do was go right upstairs to their room and crash...then join us in the morning for breakfast ;-) (The Grand provides a delicious complimentary breakfast buffet in the morning for all overnight guests) So that was also a plus, that we got to have a complimentary breakfast with family and friends the next morning. In the package we chose, The Grand also provided a few complimentary rooms, including a suite for the Bride & Groom. There are many packages to choose from for all budget types and their rates are probably the best in the area! (if not one of the best!) And the food is excellent. Even though we have been to a few weddings here, we still made sure to do a food tasting first to make sure that we still loved the food. And we did. They stuffed us and our guests and no one went home hungry. The Grand also made sure to box up some leftovers for us and offered guests seconds...Can't go wrong here! The Poughkeepsie Grand is a great venue choice!!!

I could not have asked for a more perfect venue. The planning was effortless, my coordinator (Gina) stayed in contact with me the whole time and responded to all my inquiries very quickly. The place is absolutely gorgeous (once inside; outside is a little less than desirable), once you walk in the door it feels like you are somewhere other than Poughkeepsie. The morning of my wedding went smoothly. Everything was taken care of for me, all i had to do was ready myself and my girls. The Grand took care of EVERYTHING. Our Maitre' D Stefan (sp?) was marvelous. He was always there with whatever i needed without me even asking. I literally felt like we were waited on hand and foot the whole day. I think i got spoiled actually. Also, the food was amazing and plentiful!! This venue was definitely worth the money and peace of mind.

Best decision we made with having our wedding at the Poughkeepsie Grand. They were helpful, assistant, there for our every need, and prior to answering every call that I made. Thanks to Michelle Neissen, Jordon & Laura for making our day all the best. And thanks to those behind the scenes who assisted.

We thought that we wanted and outdoor wedding, until we realized the amount of time we would need to plan it. Being we both work full time, and I am also a full time student, time was not on our side. After looking at a couple of venues in the area we thought for sure we were just going to elope because nothing fit our needs, style, or budget. Until we met with Gina (the most amazing wedding coordinator EVER!) at the Grand. As soon as we walked in, we knew the art deco style was right up our alley. I must say that from the moment we walked in the door for our first tour, until the moment we checked out of the hotel after our wedding, we were given the red carpet treatment. I decided to stay the night before, since I was having an 11:30am ceremony and the morning of my wedding was great. Estaban took such good care of me in the bridal suite. He was so cheerful, helpful, and genuine...even at 5am! Our Maitre'D, Jordan and our head waitress, Brianna, were also amazing. We did not want for anything the entire day. And, as mentioned, Gina was the most patient, wonderful person to work with. She promptly answered my emails, took extra time to reschedule an appointment that I couldn't attend because I was stuck in traffic. I cannot speak highly enough about the service we received. We have recommended the Grand to several couples in the past two months. The service is topnotch, the facility is beautiful, and the value is unbeatable.

Michelle was amazing to work with. The months leading up to the wedding she answered all my questions, emails and phone calls. On the day of my wedding she kept me calm, kept me company and even came up with a few ideas on the spot to make the day even more special. The amount of food at cocktail hour was crazy! Our guests loved the food, the drinks and the mood.

We got married at the Grand and the staff took care of absolutely everything. Our event coordinator was Michelle and she was great. She responded to all of my e-mails within a day of sending them and really helped us to personalize our day. I love that they had us bring everything from the cake topper to the programs in a week before the wedding. It felt like a weight had been lifted!

The day of we felt like royalty. The bridal suite was spacious and perfect for our needs. We had both our ceremony and reception there and they were able to transform the hall between the two both efficiently and beautifully. We were attended to all night and at the end we were escorted to our room with food and cake (as we had barely been able to eat, it was much appreciated). The brunch the next day was delicious and a nice way to say good-bye to our guests.

Considering the price per person included the cocktail hour, meal, and open bar, you really can't find a better deal around.

The Poughkeepsie Grand Hotel did an AMAZING job with our wedding reception!!!

Countless numbers of people have complimented us on the food, atmosphere, accommodations, and professional staff. Tara, our wedding coordinator, is fantastic. She helped us in so many ways. She even doubled as our wedding therapist!!!!

The Grand made the experience so smooth, and enjoyable. We hear so many times how brides/grooms don't enjoy their own wedding day. The Grand was a crucial part of making sure we thoroughly enjoyed the entire experience, and wedding day!!!

Our daughter and son in law's wedding was at The Poughkeepsie Grand two weeks ago. We cannot say enough about the staff at the Grand. We dealt with Tara from the moment we booked the place. Tara was wonderful about accommodating a nervous bride and groom and their parents. She always answered emails and calls immediately, listened carefully and gave wonderful suggestions. We found it easier to pay by the month, so each month my husband would drop off a check and she promptly sent us a receipt. Even near the wedding where things can get a little crazy with guest count, etc... she always kept us all calm and laughing.
When the day finally arrived, everything was set up beautifully, the food was delicious and the staff was warm and accommodating. The bridal party enjoyed their own cocktail suite which was theirs for the entire night for keeping bags, changing shoes, etc... The Grand also gives the couple five complimentary rooms and a beautiful bridal suite for themselves. We were so happy that we chose The Grand also, because after the reception, many of the out of town guests met at the bar area for more fun and conversation, and then met in the ballroom for a great breakfast which is included with the rooms. The prices at the Grand were also much better than competing catering halls. Our guests just gushed at what a good time they had, and we could not have asked for a more perfect reception!!! (Our ceremony was at a church, but I'm sure the ceremonies at The Grand are just beautiful!)

My husband and I recently had our wedding reception at the Poughkeepsie Grand Hotel. We had an absolutely amazing time and have received nothing but RAVE reviews from our guests. Everything was beautiful and exactly as we had discussed. Tara was a pleasure to work with and made our planning very simple. The food was delicious and the staff is extremely courteous and professional as well as very personable, making you feel comfortable and welcome. The Maitre 'D, Jacob, as well as Anthony's service, was extraordinary and made us feel on top of the world. We would absolutely recommend having any event at the Poughkeepsie Grand Hotel. It is well worth the value.

From the moment we started to plan the wedding with Michelle to day after the wedding the staff at the Grand was AMAZING! Even our guests raved about the service. The wait staff was waiting for us and met us outside the hotel. From that moment on they gave us anything wewanted and got us anything we asked for. I just can't say enough how wonderful they were.

(My wedding was 3/9/12 - not 11/5/11.... I need to fix this on here!)
My husband and I met here, at a party. So it was the only place we thought of to get married at! The Poughkeepsie Grand was fabulous. The staff was awesome! For the price, we received, top shelf open bar the whole time, a bridal suite that I used to get ready in, and it was mine the whole entire time I was there. We received a bridal suite and 5 complimentary hotel rooms for our guests. The food was outstanding! Our maitre'd was Rob - who hung up my husbands tux when we went up to my room! It was just the best time ever!!!!!!!! Also, in the morning we received a complimentary breakfast - which had everything you could think of. I had so many people tell me to just skip a wedding, and take off to an island. That I would regret all the money spent, and it is just for one day. Blah, blah, blah! I LOVED every moment and would not have changed one thing about it! Everything was awesome!

Michelle Nissen is the best coordinator at the Grand. We book our wedding a year and a half in advance and Michelle was there every step of the way. She was quick to respond to my emails and questions and was always available to help. She planned everything perfectly for us. The ceremony room and our reception area was decorated just how we imagined it. I loved that a week before the wedding Michelle planned it that I bring everything to her, from our place cards, decorations and favors, etc, that way I do not have to worry about anything, and it was the best idea. They were accommodating to our guests who have food allergies. The food was incredible!! Our guests loved the buffet. The Grand had so many choices to choose from for our buffet. Our maitre d, Jake was amazing as well. He made sure that at all times my husband and I, as well as our parents were happy, had a full drink and a smile on their face. Thew bridal suite was beautiful, breakfast in the morning was good and was a great way to spend time with family and friends the next day. The hotel staff were accommodating as well. My bridesmaids and I stayed the night before the wedding and they made sure that the girls rooms for the next night were near rooms we had so they wouldn't have to go far with their stuff. We could of not picked a better place for our wedding. The price was great for the package we got, and was worth every penny!! I HIGHLY recommend The Poughkeepsie Grand Hotel to anyone for the wedding!

We had our wedding at the Grandview in Poughkeepsie and used the Poughkeepsie Grand for guest accomodations and the honeymoon suite. They also provided a shuttle to and from the Grandview for our guests to use to get between the locations. The services were wonderful. Check-in was a breeze and the staff was incredibly polite. The honeymoon suite was absolutely epic! I just wish we could have spent more time there (we left for the honeymoon at 4am, so didn't get to take advantage of the cute little dinette by the window looking over the river and the bridge, so cute!) The bathroom was very impressive in the suite as well, one of those things you'd have to see to appreciate.. it was very fancy!
No complaints whatsoever. Thanks to the staff at the Grand!!

We had our reception at the Poughkeepsie Grand two weeks ago and our guests are still raving about it!! Where do I even begin?! The whole planning process was extremely easy. When I compare my process with other friends who have gotten married, mine seemed to be less stressful than theirs. The sales managers you work with throughout the process are extremely helpful, knowledgeable and experienced. They are quick to respond to any questions you have. On the night of our reception they showed us the ballroom before the guests saw it and I was absolutely amazed. It looked even more beautiful than I had imagined it would be. They set up everything the way we wanted it to be set up and made it look even better than the way I had showed them. The staff was so attentive to not only us, but to all of our guests. Our guests keep telling us that they were the best staff they had ever met at a wedding. The staff had smiles on their faces all night and took such wonderful care of me and my husband and all of our guests. The food was incredible. Our guests were gushing to us about how great the food was from the cocktail hour through the dinner. It was great that we had our guests staying there as well because when they are ready to leave they went right up to their room and we didn't have to worry about anyone driving. Even the front desk staff were amazing! They were super energetic and accommodating to us and our guests. I would, without a doubt, recommend this venue to anyone and everyone. Thank you Poughkeepsie Grand for an incredible night!

My husband and I got married here on 8.26.11 and the ceremony was set up really beautiful. Michelle was the best coordinator. The cocktail hour was great. Once your hand has no drink, they bring you another right away. Drinks are amazing, as is the crab rangoon omg! So many chicken choices to choose from as your chicken choice. Everything was delicious. Staff is so friendly. The free trolley takes you to shadows and the last pick up time is 1:30am. Very convenient. Our friends and family said it was the best wedding hands down.

From the moment we booked with Rachel at the Grand Hotel we were astonished by the wonderful service and attentiveness we received. Rachel was amazing. She answered every inquiry of ours in a very timely manner and accommodated all of our requests. Her skill and expertise in planning a wedding reception were extraordinarily helpful in our planning process. On our wedding day, the service, food and decor were beyond anything we had ever imagined. I can honestly say that every single aspect of our wedding reception was beyond exceptional. Our maitre'd, Jacob, was always within arms reach and so gracious, as was our head server. The staff, coordinator, food and bartenders were all incredibly amazing. My husband and I are hoping that we get invited to a wedding held at the Grand Hotel so that we can re-live such a wonderful night. Many, many thanks to everyone at the Grand Hotel. ABSOLUTELY AMAZING!

I can not praise the service I received from the POK grand staff enough. Five stars does not seem to be as high as they deserve. Our coordinator Michelle did everything a bride could possibly ask for to help our reception go smoothly. They set up all our decorations, cleaned everything up, helped our vendors set up, etc. Michelle even let our groomsmen use the additional bridal suite to get ready in, even though our package only included one suite which the bridesmaids and I were using. The food was amazing and they even sent out small sampler plates to the guests which had samples of the dishes they did not order on them. All the guests said it was the best wedding cake they have ever eaten. I had a full candy buffet which the staff completely set up and cleaned up for me without any direction. They even spread little sparkles and glass decorations I had given them, on all the tables. I really cannot praise the POK grand enough for their quality of service. In addition to all of this, the place is absolutely beautiful and the price cannot be beat!! Thank you POK grand for making my day so awesome! On a side note, POK grand uses Lucille's Floral Design, for their centerpieces. We decided to use her for our bouquets as well. Well the centerpieces were quite ugly and when it came time to leave for the church, we realized we had one less bridesmaid bouquet than what we were supposed to have! Our head waited had to run around and pick flowers out of the (ugly) centerpieces to make a bouquet for the maid of honor. Also my flowers were pretty but not that fresh as they had brown around the edges and the Bridesmaid's bouquets fell apart as we were taking pictures after the church. If you are going to use the POK grand I would opt out of the centerpieces and use a company of your own choosing.

I could not be happier with The Grand. Michelle did an awesome job. Everything was exactly as I imagined. And better than I would have asked them to set up. From the minute I checked in, to the ceremony and reception, till the moment I left, I was greeted and helped by a very warm and friendly staff. The bridal suite was beautiful. I did not want to leave. I wished I had booked a second night.

The Grand was absolutely wonderful on all counts. Leading up to the wedding everyone was extremely helpful in the planning process and answering any and all questions we had. In addition, the booking of rooms for our guests was so easy and the staff was willing to help in any way possible. The day of the wedding, we could not have asked for better service. Everyone went above and beyond to make sure that our day was perfect. In addition, the benefits are above and beyond for the price-per-plate the Grand charges. I would definitely recommend the Grand to anyone wanting to have a wedding in the Poughkeespie area.

Along the way, they were so flexible with my options for our catering and the price was just so low compared to others- but the food and service was not sacrificed. Our guests loved the food and the surroundings, it was BEAUTIFUL at Christmas time. Our Maitre De was fabulous and very attentive- many of our guests said that ours was the best, most fun wedding they have been to!

The Grand did an excellent job with my wedding. We had booked them only 3 months prior to the wedding, and in that 3 month period everything was ironed out in only 3 meetings. Tara was a pleasure to work with, as well as the rest of the staff. The food was excellent, and VERY plentiful. The bridal party was given a private room to relax in during the cocktail hour and we were doted on basically hand and foot. I never felt like any of the staff was insincere and the Maitre d' was wonderful. The centerpieces were included and I was pleasantly surprised. The staff did a wonderful job decorating as I was not picky and gave them free reign (basically I told them to just "make it look good"). Everything was spectacular and the amount of things they include is astounding. Definitely worth every penny.

The Terrace ballroom and Sapphire package was what we bought, and even though we had the bare minimum our package allowed for people, almost everything went off without a hitch. Our guests had a great time, the ceremony went off without a hitch. The food was excellent and they were very mindful of my wife's food allergies in helping us figure out the menu.
The staff was spot on with everything except they let the wedding in the next ballroom take over the terrace for photos, so we didn't get a chance to take very many there with our bridal party.

Overall I had a wonderful wedding experience with the Poughkeepsie Grand. My husband and I selected the Grand for our reception and guest hotel following our ceremony in West Point, NY. The food was delicious, the waiting staff friendly and efficient, and the location lovely. Our guests were kept entertained with the cocktail hour and the patio we had access to during the reception. Plenty of space for everyone to mingle and move about. The bridal powder room right next door was especially convenient for getting ready and touchups throughout the night. Our wedding coordinator was so helpful and pleasant to work with, and she really assisted us in planning our night. The only problem we encountered throughout the whole experience was some room confusion upon checking in the night before the wedding. Overall, I would recommend the Grand to anyone looking for a quality reception location with delicious food that also seconds as accommodations.

The food was amazing and they had a variety of choices. The free trolley takes you to shadows and the last pick up time is 1:30am. Very convenient. Our friends and family all enjoyed themselves and said it was one of the best weddings ever.

Overall- Excellent experience!!!
They did not provide the champagne to our guests during cocktail- which we paid for.
One person told us to enter and my fiance almost saw me prior to the ceremony...our best man caught that in time thank god!
They did not light our candle ahead of time, so we had to stop the ceremony so someone could get matches...this lost us some time.

Overall though- wonderful.
The food was excellent and the help/wait staff/mat. D....ect. were super!!

Overall we were extremely happy with the Pok Grand for our wedding. Our Maitre d' Jacob was OUTSTANDING! He knew what we wanted before we wanted it and made sure we had it, whatever it was. All the service staff were amazing. The food was good, not great, but tasty and there was tons of it. The only complaint we have is about our wedding coordinator Michelle. My husband and I are very non-traditional people. We didn't want the standard cookie cutter wedding, rather one that really reflected us and our likes. Michelle fought us every step of the way. One of the things I didn't like was that when you do a sweetheart table, they put the cake table directly in front of it. I'm short, so no one would be able to see me behind my cake. When I said I wanted it moved, she told me that was how they did it. It took me ten minutes of arguing for her to say, "oh well we can put it over here." Many things were like that with Michelle. So I say use the Grand because they are an amazing deal and you get good quality for the money, but stay away from Michelle.

We were completely satisfied with the service we received from The Grand and, most importantly, our guests were very happy and had plenty to eat and drink. Most of them said that with all the food at the cocktail hour, they could barely eat their meal! Our personal Maitre D’ was excellent and always made sure we had plenty for ourselves. After the reception was over and my husband and I went to our room (5 complementary hotel rooms and Bridal Suite are included), they had leftover food put into our refrigerator and that was just wonderful – we had it for lunch the next day! The staff was a pleasure and the entire reception went so smoothly.

They offered a very attractive discount by having a "winter wedding", but since it was the end of March, we didn't have to really worry about a major snow event. The food was very good and a lot was served. The actual reception itself was great- the staff was very attentive and our guests were treated great. The only issue was that an event next door accidentally caused the fire alarm to go off, which meant that we had an annoying alarm go off for about 30 minutes when people were dancing. At least it wasn't during our first dance or during the speeches! The reality is that this venue is a great bargain, but it is a "wedding factory". The benefit is that it knows what it is doing. The con is that there is no room for flexibility or to really personalize the event. For us, that was fine, but some couples may not appreciate that.

We used this hotel for our guests to stay after the wedding. They were very professional. The rooms were clean and they worked with me to get the out of town bags to all of our guests. The breakfast provided the next day was great and a nice way to see our guests before they left.

The Grand did a great job with our wedding. The food was okay. But the food dosent make a wedding. The people and the music does. It is really nice how your guests can go to the bar after and continue to socialize and party and then go right upstairs to their rooms. I would reccomend them to people.

Poughkeepsie grand is a really cost effective place for a wedding. On our wedding day they were on top of everything and had great food and service. The only downside is the parking which is shared with the civic center and the elevator that goes from the parking lot to the hotel isn't impressive at all. But besides that it really a pretty place to get married.

I was very excited to have my wedding at the Poughkeepsie Grand Hotel. I had heard so many wonderful things about weddings that family and friends had been to at the venue. Throughout the year I was planning and working with the grand, I was extremely happy with the services I received, especially working with Michelle. When I submitted my final payment, I felt as though I didnt get that good of service anymore. My rehearsal was a joke and was not organized or carried out well, which was embarassing for me. On the day of our wedding, Michelle and the other employees did not direct guests to the ballroom which resulted in our wedding starting 25 minutes late. As a result of that, there was a snowball efffect that led to a small number of pictures and a 3 hour reception compared to the 4 hour reception that we paid for. Overall, we had a great night and a wonderful wedding. Our head server, Andrew, was FANTASTIC and the food was wonderful, but we were just frustrated with the lack of help and support we received the day of the wedding.

Do not book your wedding at this place. I had attended a wedding at the Poughkeepsie Grand over a yr ago and had a nice time. I thought it would be a good place to have our wedding. We made it simple and booked it. We gave our deposit and signed the contracts and began planning the rest of our wedding. When I called to ask a question two months later the sales associate informed me that the date had been double booked for our wedding and we would not be able to hold our event on this day. When I told them I had already booked several vendors to this date and locations they were "apologetic" but said there was nothing they could do. After asking to speak with the head of the hotel not only did they inform us that we would have to change the date or make other arrangements, they then told us that if we had to cancel and go somewhere else that they would not be able to give us our deposit back. After trying to figure out a date that worked for the five vendors we had booked we opted to cancel the wedding at poughkeepsie grand because the loos of all the down payments for the vendors out weighted the deposit we gave the hotel. In the end they kept 1500 of our money and said "well you entered into our contract in good faith that you would pay the money." The event rep that double booked us was horrible and the head of the hotel was not much better. I have been in customer service for over ten yrs and I could not believe how this place treated us. I have NEVER took the time to write a review about a place positive or negative but figured that this needed to be out there. Oh and to top it off people I know recently got married there and the electric wiring in the ballrooom shorted leaving them powerless before the the ceremony. It cause the whole thing to be postponed two hrs. I hear there customer service skills were just as good when dealing with the bridal party who was in the dark. They are not good buisness people. do yourself a favor and stay away!!

Do not book here. Once they get your money the customer service goes out the door. Our event was short staff and because of that our guest table were never picked up and and never received coffee even after several request. When we address this we were told we received quality service even though throughout the night we were constantly told we are short staff! I understand things happen but the lack of compassion for the lack of service is just a slap in the face.

The day of our weeding was the worse experience of our lives. The service was terrible the food was horrible We picked the chicken Cordenblue was desgusting dry no flavor at all when We saw my guest moving their heads and leaving the plates the way they were my husband and I felt very embarrass . Not even the kids ate the chicken for the kids was horrible too . In the reception we had a buffet candy they told us that the waiters were in charge to keep full the martini glasses with candy during the party .... Nothing .... my husband had to ask one of the waiters he did once that's it my guest were looking for more my husband and I had to go and do it we had so much candy left over it was so ridiculous . If I could go back the time We would never ever get married in this place its horrible :(
