Great staff! Tony is very accommodating and always available to meet. The florist made the most beautiful flower arrangements, as I wanted them. All of my guests loved the food and the music was perfect! We had an amazing wedding without having to spend over the budget. Thank you to the Renaissance staff for your professionalism and beautiful decorations for our wedding. We were very happy with the results and it made our day an amazing one!

This was the perfect venue for my wedding! The look and feel of the venue was very warm and made you feel very comfortable. The professionalism of Tony was off the charts! He responded quickly to any concern I had and assisted in many things that went above and beyond his responsibility. A quick story: Our rehearsal had to be held late in the evening on the Thursday before the wedding and the venue closes at 6pm. However, they stayed open just so I could use the venue for our rehearsal and there was no question on the issue was going to be solved. I would recommend this venue to everyone!!

They were fantastic to me. They came at a great time, 6 months before my wedding my original venue cancelled on me and in a frenzy I found renaissance. My wedding turned out to be so much better thanks to them. They gave me a package that included everything from the venue, food, cake to the small things like the invitations, champagne glasses, the ring bearers pillow, favors, etc. They were great at coordinating everything for me, it was like having a wedding planner and venue in one. Would recommend to everyone!!!!

The Head Waitress was ok, she was pushy for most of the wedding. And in a hurry to get us out at the end.

I used Renaissance Ballrooms for my wedding reception. The food was great and the ballroom was amazing. My only complaint would be that instead of plain white chair covers that I asked for the chair covers were a lace material. My guests of course did not know the difference so I guess it didn't hurt anyone! The DJ was very accommodating to requests from the guests.

My only other issue would be that most of the wait staff did not speak English. This made it difficult for some of our guests to communicate with the staff.

When I was looking for a location I had a very tight budget and this place offered the best price. I knew that by choosing a place based on price other areas would be lacking. I was planning my wedding out of state so the planning process was a little tough as we communicated mainly by email. I felt that we had good communication and I had nothing to worry about. As we got closer to the date I began to feel a little un easy. I started working with Tony which was great but some of the things I had communicated previously were not told to him. For the Rehearsal we were rushed out at 6pm because the office closes at that time. I would have liked a little consideration and more flexibility. I wasn't impressed with the food but I understand that with my budget I got what I paid for. The staff never acknowledged me or even said congratulations. I understand I had a planner and they communicated with her directly but a simple congrats or smile would have been nice. The cake looked pretty and I heard tasted good though they did not serve it on the tables. They left them on the trays next to tables and told people to get it if they wanted which I found a little odd. I found out after the wedding that my dad had to pay for the toast as the head server told him it was not included in the package. This was communicated with my contact in emails as it was a concern of mine prior to the wedding. If it wasn't included why wasnt it discussed prior to the maid of honor speech like the day before. I understand people make mistakes and after I spoke to Rosa Maria once we got back from the honeymoon it was resolved but it left a bad taste in my mouth. Lastly was the issue with the Valet Parking. per my contract I was paying for all my guest and day of my guest were charged which was very unprofessional. Its a good location just know you get what you pay for.

The place is beautiful and a good value but the staff are extremely rude, I had to follow up 20 times, I had to hire my own DJ although it came with one because they wouldn’t let me talk to him and they wouldn’t credit me for not using him. If I had not been so persistent and meticulous it really could have been a mess so I recommend that if you want peace of mind that day - do not use this vendor. If you don’t mind dealing with rude, unreliable people to get a great place at a great price, then this is the venue for you. If I could do it all over again I would not have used this venue, too much unneeded stress.

My first word of advice: DON'T book this venue.

I originally wrote a 5pg review detailing pros and cons, but this space only allows a few lines, so I'll be brief: you get what you pay for.

The staff makes promises they don't keep, and even if you get it in writing they'll try to change it:

- We were promised help planning (not a wedding planner, but direction for next steps) and all we got was "you figure it out" at the end of each meeting
- Our contract stated guests had optional valet, but halfway through the year the venue changed their parking rules and tried to force us to change our contract and require valet for our guests - 1 MONTH before our wedding. We actually had to fight them to keep it as is, even though it's a legally binding contract and can't be changed without both parties in agreement.
- Food was okay. We were told when we signed the contract we could do a tasting 2-3 months before, but silly us didn't get it in writing, so they tried to back out when we asked to do it. We were "lucky" to try day old food the party yesterday served.

Also:
- They refuse to book appointments, meaning you need to plan a few hours to visit the office, and wait your turn. Then they rush you out, because there's a line of people waiting after you.
- They have a horrible "you should be honored to be our client" attitude rather than, you know, putting the customer first. The owner, Rosa, is the icing on the cake for all this. She was rude, always rushed us out, gave us a "how could you be so stupid" look every mtg, and had no problem speaking rudely about employees, other clients, or even US while we were waiting for her 3 feet away.
- The DJ was awful: music kept cutting out, didn't play half the songs requested, and didn't follow direction well.

If it wasn't for my amazing family, and especially wedding planner Michi's Weddings, our reception would not have gone as well as it did.

Pros: Scala Ballroom is beautiful, price IS hard to beat

After looking at many venues throughout Miami we settled on this venue because it included everything we needed for an affordable price. The venue includes open bar, cake, cocktail hour, black tie attire, and DJ services. I will say that the experience was sometimes good and sometimes bad.

The price was great but I wish I would have started looking and researching for venues way before hand so I would not have been in a tight situation to have to book somewhere so quickly. I really did think that the ballroom in room A at this location had beautiful looking chandeliers if this is what you like. The cake was tasty, the staff allowed us to drop stuff off early, they allowed us to bring in some of our own food from our culture and helped with set up. However, I did have a day of coordinator which I thought was necessary to have someone execute my vision and look out for my interest when I was not available.

The downside is that sometimes I felt like there was a hint of an attitude which perplexed me when you think about the money you are spending with the venue for one evening, I felt at times it appeared as if they were doing me a favor when in fact it was the opposite way around, I was bringing business. Also, I didn't like the fact that you don't get to communicate with the DJ until the week of the event on a Thursday, and the response time when you do contact the DJ is very unprofessional. After several failed attempts, my then finance had to rush to meet w/the DJ at noon to go over the music the day of the wedding and we were get married at the church at 3:30pm. Also, the rice was not good for the dinner selection. We had to pay for the tasting, and during this time I informed them that the rice was toooooo salty but during the reception, it was still tooooo salty. To offer guest more than 1 selection, there was an additional cost of $5 per person. There was a additional cost for adding more guest 2 weeks before the event date. I felt like they penalized you for every little thing so you were confined to some extent. To switch the cake flavor to anything other than vanilla was another fee, but the cake was good. I also didn't like the fact that there was service charge assessed on every thing, from the cost of the outside police that was mandatory to include to the renting of the chivary chairs and another fee on top of that.

As I stated, there were good and bad things about the venue, do your research first and ask as many questions up front for clarification.

The price was great but I wish I would have started looking and researching for venues way before hand so I would not have been in a tight situation to have to book somewhere so quickly. I really did think that the ballroom in room A at this location had beautiful looking chandeliers if this is what you like. The cake was tasty, the staff allowed us to drop stuff off early, they allowed us to bring in some of our own food from our culture and helped with set up. However, I did have a day of coordinator which I thought was necessary to have someone execute my vision and look out for my interest when I was not available.

The downside is that sometimes I felt like there was a hint of an attitude which perplexed me when you think about the money you are spending with the venue for one evening, I felt at times it appeared as if they were doing me a favor when in fact it was the opposite way around, I was bringing business. Also, I didn't like the fact that you don't get to communicate with the DJ until the week of the event on a Thursday, and the response time when you do contact the DJ is very unprofessional. After several failed attempts, my then finance had to rush to meet w/the DJ at noon to go over the music the day of the wedding and we were get married at the church at 3:30pm. Also, the rice was not good for the dinner selection. We had to pay for the tasting, and during this time I informed them that the rice was toooooo salty but during the reception, it was still tooooo salty. To offer guest more than 1 selection, there was an additional cost of $5 per person. There was a additional cost for adding more guest 2 weeks before the event date. I felt like they penalized you for every little thing so you were confined to some extent. To switch the cake flavor to anything other than vanilla was another fee, but the cake was good. I also didn't like the fact that there was service charge assessed on every thing, from the cost of the outside police that was mandatory to include to the renting of the chivary chairs and another fee on top of that.

As I stated, there were good and bad things about the venue, do your research first and ask as many questions up front for clarification. Read less
