When we booked our Wedding Reception at Ravello Banquets over a year and a half ago, Bill was the banquet manager. Needless to say, I was a little nervous and surprised to find out a few months before our wedding that Emmanuel had taken over.

We quickly realized that there was no need to be nervous! Emmanuel was nothing but supportive and helpful as we entered the 'crunch time' of wedding planning. He worked with us to honor what we had discussed with Bill in our contract, but was also creative and innovative to make sure that things were efficient and ran smoothly. It was evident that Emmanuel's priority was to make sure that our day was exactly what we wanted. We were in constant contact the two weeks leading up to the wedding- he even checked in on me the morning of just to make sure that I was doing okay!

We could not have asked for a more picture-perfect day. When we arrived (a little flustered and a few minutes late from Friday-night traffic) he ushered us right into the bridal suite and made sure that we had food and drink while we were taking pictures. He was super helpful in tracking down people and making sure that we were always taken care of. Both the cocktail hour and reception rooms were BEAUTIFUL. He worked with all of our vendors seamlessly. When we asked to extend cocktail hour a little to accommodate for late-arriving guests due to traffic it was easily done.

We have received so many compliments the night-of and days following the wedding. The food was delicious, the drinks were flowing, and everyone had a blast! One of our good friends is a chef- she couldn't stop complimenting how delicious everything was! So many people told me that they thought that the venue was absolutely gorgeous. We're thrilled with our choice, and would do everything again in a heartbeat.

Love Ravello!!!!!! My husband and I stumbled across Ravello during our venue search and I am so glad that we did. Ravello was a God send! Emmanuel and the entire staff at Ravello were warm and welcoming. The food was absolutely AMAZING! The guests were full at cocktail hour but they made room by the time dinner rolled around. The dessert bar was completely sinful! The pastries, cakes and bananas foster were awesome! Emmanuel is wonderful to work with. He made the entire process seamless and stress free from start to finish! Great people, it was like having dinner with family! Thank YOU!

There are not enough words that I can say about how amazing our wedding was. When we booked Ravellos, Bill was the event manager. Than 6 months before our wedding, Emmanuel took over. Emmanuel was always emailing us back and keeping in touch with us. When we met him for our tasting, I knew that we were in good hands. When we had our tasting, everything was amazing. We got to eat the food by ourselves and when we were done we sat with Emmanuel and went over our entire menu. I was even able to bring everything over the night before the wedding. I showed him how we wanted our centerpieces to go. We also discussed our plan B since we were going to have rain on our wedding day. When I showed up on my wedding day, everything looked perfect. Emmanuel was very attentive and on top of everything. Always asking us what we needed and he even got everything for us! I was never without anything. Even the staff was attentive and on top of everything during the wedding. During the cocktail hour, I needed to sit because my feet were hurting. Emmanuel saw me and was like "What do you need? What can I get you?" and all I said was that I was hungry and sure enough in a matter of minutes he was back with plates of food for me. Everyone at my wedding said Emmanuel and his staff were amazing. Emmanuel really made our night truly special. Thank you Emmanuel and staff for making our wedding magical!!!

Absolutely perfect! We had members of our family coming up to us and saying how it was the best wedding they have been to in a long time. Everyone loved the venue. The ceremony area out back is beautiful and sets the mood. The entire ambience was even greater than we hoped for. All venue critiques should start with the service. From the GM to the cocktail waiters and Maitre D, everyone was very kind and helpful. They were always concerned if everything was the way we wanted it. Checking in periodically with us to ensure that the wedding was moving according to our plan and imagination. We had a lovely experience with the GM, Emmanuel Kavalos. Each time we visited Ravello, before and after the wedding, we couldn't help but acknowledge the customer service and hospitality. The kindest and most helpful GM of anything that we have ever encountered, seriously. The entire staff makes you feel like the world revolves around you. As apposed to a bunch of people just doing their jobs. I cant explain how amazing the venue and employees are, so I suggest that you visit and see for yourself.

They did an exceptional job on my wedding this past weekend!! We wanted to have our wedding in their outdoor area but turns out right as the wedding was about to start it started to rain. However, they had the outdoor area ready to go as well as indoors so that I can make my decision last minute. Even though it rained it was beautiful! They were extremely attentive to my husband and I. We originally booked the wedding with someone else but Emmauel could not have been any better, he's excellent at what he does. Answered my emails quickly no matter what time it was. He helped me in every way possible. Their staff was excellent, I did not have to worry about a thing on my wedding day. I would highly recommend booking a wedding here! Not a negative thing to say!

In the middle of our wedding planning we found out they had replaced maitre d's and we were very concerned at first. However, it worked out for the best. Emmanuel was very professional in handling the transition, the contract made with the previous maitre d was kept the same, and Emmanuel even threw in a few extras. The day of the reception was everything we expected and much more. Emmanuel and the rest of the Ravello staff was very attentive to not only us but our guests as well. The wedding cake was a headache we were spared from seeing that Ravello included it in our package. We were able to fully customize our cake to our satisfaction.

Hey guys, My wife and I had our wedding at Ravello Banquets back on August 30th, and we couldn't have been happier. Everything ran so smooth and our guests had such an amazing time and we received lots of positive feedback from them on the venue. Emmanuel Kavalos the General Manager on down to the Maitre D Sam and Danny were very welcoming and helpful. They worked with us on everything and made the day go smoothly as possible. They were very open to our suggestions and accommodated us where need be. Emmanuel went out of his way to help us set up the reception area early in the day on the 30th and Danny and Sam went out of their way to welcome early arriving guests and made sure they were taken care. Joe the bartender even set up shop before the reception started for the early arriving guests and kept the drinks flowing out all night. Emmanuel was on the premises for the entire wedding to make sure it went smoothly. All in all Ravello was an amazing venue !!!! Rob and Cheryl <3
