Rose Street Market is a Fabulous place to have a wedding reception. They were very professional. Our guests couldn't say enough wonderful things about the night. The food was better than I could have imagine. The service was Fabulous. The whole night was a magical evening. There was nothing that they could have done better. It was all perfect and I would recommend this place highly for any kind of party but especially a wedding reception.

Rose Street and Just Good Food did a wonderful job doing our reception. We had guests who are still talking about how amazing the food was. Linda and Olinda were amazing and very helpful the whole night. We had a few unfortunate happenings, but Linda made sure everything was sent home with someone. The staff was very attentive and worked very hard to make sure everything turned out perfectly. We couldn't have asked for a better place and staff to have/be in charge of our reception.

The service at our wedding reception was perfection! We really appreciated the level of expertise and all at a reasonable cost. To say that all of our guests loved the food is an understatement.

My husband and I were attracted to Rose Street Market initially due to it beautiful facade and central location. Little did we know that they also provided full reception planning and catering! These additions ended up being an incredible help as we were planning our wedding from out of state. We were able to change a bit of the decor right up to the last minute, rent small items from them and they supplied and packaged our favors for us. They even individually packaged leftover cake slices for the guests to take home!
Catering was through their restaurant Just Good Food. The guests are still letting me know that the food was some of the best they've had at a wedding. It was individually ordered and served, with great attention paid to each plate. It felt, and tasted, more like a delicious restaurant than a reception!
Linda Pregitzer was exceptionally helpful throughout the planning process. She scheduled around our needs and was flexible in working primarily over the internet. She kept the reception moving on time throughout the night and seemed to have every little detail taken care of thus allowing my husband and I to relax and enjoy the night.

There is no better place to have your reception in Kalamazoo! Everything was PERFECT. You might think it's a lot of money at first, but it's all more than worth it. Linda is a true professional and will work with you to make sure everything is flawless. We wouldn't have changed one thing. Oh, and the food is delicious!

After looking at a lot of bland venues, my fiance and I decided to look at Rose Street Market in downtown Kalamazoo. We knew it was slightly out of our budget, but once we looked around, we were sold. The space was beautiful, and Linda and Olinda were incredibly helpful, not just in renting out the space, but in helping us to plan out the entire day. It was like having a wedding planner.

Everything about that night went off without a hitch. Even after I got sick at my reception, they were nothing but helpful in accomodating me while keeping the party going.

The deli, Just Good Foods, located downstairs does the catering. There are a ton of great menu options, and our guests absolutely gushed about the food. We ended up having stations, including carving, pasta, and salad. We also chose to but some Just Good Foods' delicious truffles to use as party favors.

The night was topped off with champagne and chocolate-covered strawberries on the roof at midnight for the New Years fireworks.

We couldn't have made a better choice.

I'm very happy with my choice of Rose Street Market for my wedding. Linda was great to work with: her planning binder is extremely thorough and she'll probably think of quite a few ideas you never considered. She has a lot of experience with this and knows how to execute an event smoothly and beautifully. She had recommendations for photographer, DJ, etc., all of which worked out very well.
The food, first of all, was divine, and I couldn't have been happier with that choice. There are tons of options for you to pick from, and I'd be very surprised if even the pickiest eater couldn't find a menu that pleased them.
The venue itself is a beautiful old building, very well suited to the event, and the decorations were tasteful and not overdone.
My husband and I were given a small table downstairs with some nibbles, before our entrance, which was much appreciated as we hadn't eaten anything beforehand. It was an intimate little affair, a nice touch so we could get some alone time before socializing all night!
Wait staff were always around serving drinks and bussing tables - I think they were a little over-responsive at times. I had my dessert on a table while I was dancing, and next time I came back it had been taken away, which was a bit frustrating.
Linda was on hand for the whole event to make sure things ran according to the schedule, and flexible enough to change things up when we had a unique photo opportunity which hadn't been planned. She was great to work with.
Overall I'm very pleased with my choice of venue and would definitely recommend Rose Street Market to anyone looking to hold an event in Kalamazoo.

I was happy with Rose Street for our reception. Staff was wonderful and very helpful. They served all grandparents and parents at their table the entire night. Food was delicious and people had a great time. However, there were some things I wish I knew about before booking. They are not very flexible. I wanted to play a big part in setting up, and they didn't let me. They wanted to set it up themselves. Also, you cannot bring your drink on the dance floor. They make you put it down before dancing. I had a mistress of ceremony that wasn't allowed to help because I didn't put her on the list of things. Very difficult owners, but everything else was great.

The setting at Rose St. Market is a beautiful, romantic setting and the food is absolutely outstanding! Our guests were very impressed with the quality of the food. Linda (co-owner) is very knowledgeable and organized and as a super organized bride, I appreciated it. She can be a little intense though and I did have several guests comment that she was a little brash. She was also sometimes difficult to get a hold of, I would send several emails before receiving a response, unless she had sent the initial email. Overall, I would recommend Rose St. It truely is a full service venue.

My wedding day was magical, it truly was, but this will be a mixed review.
Food-Tremendous! Olinda is absolutely amazing! Delicious everything! I am gluten-free, and Olinda was very knowledgeable & accommodating. 5 stars for everything surrounding the food!
Venue-The venue itself is absolutely gorgeous. We loved the history of the building and the atmosphere. The location is ideal with it being downtown and close to lodging.
Bar-One of the reasons we chose Rose Street was because you can supply your own alcohol, a major cost savings! However, they are extremely strict regarding alcohol. Everyone gets carded and they limit it to one drink per person per trip to the bar. No drinks are allowed on the dance floor. The bartenders pointed to the tip jar to several of my guests, and they didn't smile the entire night.
Staff-The staff is attentive and my guests commented that they felt very taken care of. However, there was one staff member we had several issues with. There was an issue with two of our guests when they were sat (staffer alleged I had them at 2 different tables, which I definitely did not), and then this same staffer was passive aggressive toward these same guests throughout the night.
Wedding Planning-Linda is very organized and did make the event run smoothly. The binder she gives you is so detailed and included things that I hadn't thought of. However, Linda is very difficult to get ahold of and is quite brash. Once you sign the contract, you will have little to no customer service from her until about 3 months before your event. I witnessed her yelling at her staff the day of the event (before anyone got there). Linda does not relinquish control of anything to anyone and her staff operates in fear of her.
My overall assessment-the venue and the food make this an outstanding option. Just be prepared that you will have some frustration and disappointment on the planning side.

The food was great! However, when I got my final quote ( which was a month late and less than 2 months before my wedding), it was over $2000 more than my initial quote! It almost ruined my day. We talked about calling it off, but the deposit and all the other money spent, was non-refundable. To make things even more stressful, Linda is very hard to get ahold of. I also had many complaints from family members, that she was rude to them during the reception. On the other hand, Olinda is friendly and wonderful!

Worst experience ever. Terrible service. The owners should be ashamed. when I arrived I had to wait for someone to come to the coat room to take my coat. At least 5 min. of standing there waiting. Shouldn't someone be there at all times. Second, the food was bad...I've had much better. I can't say I've ever had worse, it was edible.The bartender is where our night really took a turn. There were 2 bartenders that night and the female bartender was very nice. The male bartender was on sort of power trip all night. When we arrived at the reception my husband offered to get me a glass of wine while I dropped off our gift. This venue has a very strict rule about serving one drink at a time per person. I totally understand that! The bartender could have told my husband this rule. Instead he said, "you're done." My husband replied, "I haven't even started...I just got here." After the bartender refused service and ignored my husband while he was standing right in front of him the female bartender asked my husband what the problem was. This is when I walk up. The female bartender informed us of their rule. No problem! We understand. Showed our id's, got a drink, and sat down. We both enjoyed one drink during dinner. After dinner we went up to the bar for a second drink. The bartender looked at us. He then asked the people behind us what they would like to drink. Seriously?! Again, we stood up there until the female bartender showed up, ordered our drinks without any issues. After cake things started to die down a bit and we figured we would have one more drink before leaving to walk to our hotel. We went up to the female bartender and the male bartender interrupted us and told the woman, "this couple is over served, they are intoxicated. Do not serve them." I informed the woman we had only had 2 drinks over a 4 hour period. We would like one more and we are not even driving. She gladly served us our drinks. Overall, our experience at this venue was terrible.
