This venue is amazing and everyone raved about the food!! Andrea and Alondra were wonderful to work with. I was able to relax on my wedding day because they were so attentive to every detail. Even with a quick switch due to weather, everything flowed perfectly. I couldn't have asked for a better team!

My husband and I had the wedding of our dreams at the Grosse Pointe War Memorial. I couldn't tell you how WONDERFUL, AMAZING, KIND Andrea was through the WHOLE process helping plan our wedding. Andrea was never late on any email, or phone call. She was always on time for everything. She made the whole planning process so smoothly, and never ever had me feeling stressed once. I knew as long as she was there everything would go according to plan, and it sure did! Our ceremony and reception was truly perfect. All our guests couldn't believe how beautiful the venue was, some said it was their favorite venue they have ever seen! We had sooo many compliments on how great the food was, everything was prepared perfectly. We chose the salmon and chicken picatta (best part it was steaming still when it came out :) ) The waiters were constantly filling up everyones waters and made sure everyone was satisfied. We got married end of July, but that didn't bother us because the AC was turned up at perfect temperature. Like I said before, if you're looking for a venue I highly recommend this one. Ask for Andrea no matter what, she is truly an amazing employee and wonderful at what she does but, also she is just a great person in general!!!!!!

Ask for Andrea!! I fear that wordy reviews are often skimmed & looked over, so if you take anything away from this review, it is this: talk to Andrea. She was incredible.
Like many engaged couples, you browse all of the different wedding/reception venues. For us, we loved the food & consistency of the Italian halls in the nearby areas... But we wanted something classic, historic & with a beautiful ballroom & view of the water, The Grosse Pointe War Memorial was our top contender. We looked at The Whitney (a little small for 120+ guests) & The Colony Club (they took quite a while to get back to us & the lack of communication was concerning.) I do not mean to discount these venues, but as a new bride, I would appreciate this honesty. The GPWM was great with all communication. Our guests LOVED our location. Even more, our wedding was at the very end of October, & we were told that an outdoor ceremony was impossible. Andrea made it possible. Instead of a quick 'no', she waited until the late afternoon to call it & lo and behold, chairs were quickly set up & the ceremony took place on the back steps overlooking the gorgeous water.
Further, she worked hard to make sure we weren't over-paying for teens who were only to eat a meal but not consume alcohol, which saved us money. She made sure that our many guests with food allergies were well taken care of. She was honest. A month before our wedding, the executive chef left & we were so worried about the food (my family can be very picky about their meal.) She didn't have to tell us, but she did & assured us that the food would be impeccable. Frank Turner & Fabrizia (executive & sous chef) are AWESOME. The food, drinks & dessert table were all delicious. For those of you who haven't been to the GPWM (they've recently renovated the ballroom & it's stunning.) please check it out. And to the staff at the War Memorial, thank you!

The service we received on the day and leading up to the wedding was absolutely incredible. I can't say enough about the great food, attentive service, and beautiful venue. The price of the food and space is incredible compared to some of the other venues in the area and the backdrop is just impossible to find anywhere else; the gardens and the lake views in the ballroom are beautiful. The one thing I would say was not ideal was that it seemed there was an extremely high turn over with wedding coordinators. From my time of booking (a full year out) to the time of my wedding, we worked with three different coordinators, after the first and second left the War Memorial.

The Grosse Pointe War Memorial is amazing! Cheryl was more than helpful anytime I had a question. If I ever had to leave a voicemail, Cheryl got back to me in a timely matter. I had my ceremony and reception at the Grosse Pointe War memorial and I couldn't have been happier with my choice. The views are amazing and all my guest complemented me for weeks about the overall quality and service at the GPWM. If you are going for an upscale, vintage theme, like myself, this venue is PERFECT! My husband and I couldn't have asked for a better wedding venue. I give the GPWM five stars.

I had always liked the idea of a lakeside wedding and the War Memorial proved to be the most beautiful setting. We worked with Cheryl and she helped keep us on track on making our day the most memorable day ever. Everyone that we worked with at the War Memorial was so very helpful. They are very organized and efficient. The food was great and the service was wonderful.
