The Carlisle was phenomenal! Not only did we use this venue for our reception but wedding ceremony as well. One month before the wedding, my on-site coordinator at the Carlisle no longer worked at the venue and I was nervous about who ever they would place us with so close to the wedding, but I could not have been any more satisfied! ALL of the staff were AMAZING! The quality was great! The facility is up to date with a modern feel and I have heard nothing but great things about the food! They were beyond accommodating, making sure they met our every needs. The value was beyond comparison of any other local banquet hall with the same quality! The Carlisle has made my wedding experience one to remember. I am forever grateful for the amazing staff for taking care of us and ensuring that I had the wedding that I ALWAYS dreamed of. Thank you very much!

From the first meeting with the Carlisle to the day of the wedding they handled every aspect of the wedding perfectly! As Parents of the Bride they were fantastic to work with on the details! I would plan another event with them with out a doubt. We have had many compliments about how great the steaks were and the chicken dinners. they worked with us to the very last detail including the surprises that we threw in for the bride and groom!

We just had our wedding at the Carlisle on Saturday, April 5th. Everything was wonderful! Megan was our planner, and she was so responsive and helpful with everything. The rooms turned out even more beautiful than I could have imagined. Our only little complaint is that not all tables got served cake. Other than that, it was amazing! :)

The Carlisle was a wonderful venue to have my wedding. I visited the Carlisle and just fell in love with the whole experience. The venue is elegant and has so many different options to make your wedding special. I actually booked my wedding on the first visit to the Carlisle. The event staff there was so accommodating and helpful. When I need assistance or had questions they were quick to respond with ideas. The communication was awesome! The food was unbelievable! The cooks and serving staff met my expectations by going above and beyond with service. I had over 250 guests and was serving a 5 course meal and ALL the food was out on time with great presentation. The Carlisle made special arrangements for the cake I wanted and also added in other great extras. The room was gorgeous and they worked so well with my wedding planner on the design, so that the room was exactly how I pictured it. I would recommend this venue to anyone. The entire package was just wonderful!

The BEST venue! All in one package! The people working there are so accomodating, Megan and Maureen teamed up for my wedding and are very helpful. The manager Peter don't mind if he had to be a bartender on my wedding night as long as they keep the party going! I don't have anything to say bad about them, in fact if I had to get married again, I would do it there! The place is well kept, all the chandeliers are gleaming!

We loved the Carlisle. They put the room together for the ceremony and then the reception exactly the way I wanted it, and it looked more amazing than I imagined. They set up items such as escort cards, signing book and table favors just the way we asked them too. A lot of attention to detail and the staff was the best. The food is amazing and the service was spot on. The bartender did a great job with our signature drinks and having some requested no alcoholic beverages available.

Maureen was ABSOLUTELY WONDERFUL.. She was very flexible with me by me being an out of state bride. The food was FANTASIC I recommend the Chicken Picatta! I still hear how good the food was. They also did my cake as well. They have a great package that I think people should take advantage of..The Venue is beautiful Peter is very funny as well. I really think that you would have a wonderful time if you decide to have your venue there. Make sure you look on Wedding wire for "Memior of Love" to help you plan your event there. She has AWESOME packages as well and I would highly recommend using her "Full Coordination" package. She is based out of Houston but she traveled to Chicago to help with our day!

I would recommend The Carlisle to anyone getting married!!! My husband and I checked out a ton of places before we decided upon The Carlisle and we chose them because the venue is beautiful, the pricing very reasonable, the staff was easy to work with and very helpful, and the location is convenient. The day of the wedding was perfect. They listened to everything I had told them and they made my room look more beautiful than I could have even imagined. We did modified family style for dinner and there was a lot of food and everything was delicious. Every time we talk to someone who came to our wedding they always talk about how wonderful the food was. There was not one problem with my experience at The Carlisle and I am so happy they helped to make my wedding day perfect!

My husband and I had our wedding in June at The Carlisle. We worked with Maureen Micek, she helped us create the wedding of our dreams. The Carlisle went above and beyond what we had expected of our reception venue. They are extremely helpful and are willing to work with the bride and groom with everything they want. We had a wedding of 338 people and each table had amazing service. The food was amazing, the room came out beautifully decorated and our matre'd for the night was super helpful, anything that came up during our reception was taken care of by him. I would definitely recommend The Carlisle to my friends and my family for all of their banquet needs.

The Carlisle in Lombard, IL was the best place I could ever have my wedding reception at. The staff was friendly and provided excellent service to my guests. We ordered the chicken picatta, New York strip steak and the seafood mixed grill and all of the food turned out great for 150+ guests. Lauren at The Carlisle did such a lovely job putting out all of my old wedding pictures, guest seating chart and the countless list of other items that were out at the reception. This venue is a great value and the ambiance is sheer elegance!

We had our wedding booked for next summer, and my husband found out he was being deployed this year... they were very flexible and let us move our date. Their packages are wonderful, and they still provide room for changes. I would recommend them to anyone.

Also, invest in the chair covers... it makes the room.

While this place was expensive, I would still highly recommend it. The Carlisle has beautiful rooms, and though we used one of the smaller ones, they really were able to make it look huge.

I had my doubts when I saw it empty, but on my wedding day, it looked like a completely new room. My husband raves about the food, but I thought it was average. Not bad, but nothing that blew me away, either. We had a chicken meal that I thought was a little dry.

The cake, though, was perfect. Unfortunately I was so busy that I didn't get to finish mine, but we ordered a devil's food cake, and the taste and way they decorated it were beyond what I expected.

We had some issues with the music when our bridal party was introduced, but aside from that, The Carlisle was great with accomodating our needs. I have to add, my mother-in-law had also booked HUGE events here for her charity, and paid upfront, so needless to say, the staff there knew they could benefit from her good experience. I hate to say that I think this had a little to do with how well they treated us. I hope not, and do hope that they treat everyone as well, but I think they really focused on impressing my mother-in-law specifically.

An amazing place for a wedding, extremely flexible, very easy to work with, and so caring. They included my cake in their rate which was already very reasonable. I got to design my cake myself (sent them photos of what I liked from different cakes) and it turned out BEAUTIFULLY!! Rates were so much value for what I got and during the reception we were so well taken care of from the minute we arrived to the very end. We had a host who stayed for the entire event, even helped packed up gifts at the end, waited on our guests - as they arrived he offered to deliver thier gifts for them to the gift table, etc etc.
