What can i say, Ron and Starla Hobbs Are the most sweetest, caring, loving understanding good kind-hearted people i have ever met in my entire life! we met with Ron and Starla about a month ago and fell in love with the two of them! they are such a beautiful couple! Starla has become my very own personal mentor and counselor, wedding planning is very stressful and just talking with her helps me out a lot, i find myself emailing her about a lo of thing, she is very helpful. the Venue itself is gorgeous, it was love at first site! my Fiance propose to me at the Arcadia arboretum so we wanted to have our wedding there but the arboretum has been a huge disappointment, the communication with the coordinator has been so frustrating and a huge turn off, whereas Starla has been absolutely amazing on reaching out to us and has made life so much better, so being torn between the beautiful arboretum where the love of my life got down on one knee and asked me and the Romanesque Room where the reception venue is vintage and gorgeous i couldn't decide between the two so my lovely fiance came up with the best idea and that was to have both venues feature our wedding! the arboretum for the ceremony and the Romanesque for the reception, and that made this bride-to-be the happiest woman in the world to have both venues and not to mention they are very close in distance from each other. as we told Ron and starla about the issues we were having at the arboretum they assured us that if Arcadia didn't work out we can always have our ceremony there no mater the circumstances, and that was a huge weight lifted. we are still having communication issues with the arboretum so we are looking for other ceremony venues in the are so we can still have our reception at the beautiful Romanesque Room august 4th 2017 (wedding date) . but if we do not we will definitely have both here! i am still trying to keep hope and faith alive with the arboretum. thank you so much Ron and Starla! xoxo Alona

We had our wedding here on October 8th,2016. Everything is so perfect! Love the way that Ron runs his business. Not like some of other venues, Romanesque doesn't have any hidden cost, Ron explained everything clearly.
"Restaurant partnership" program is very helpful! We had a full open and opened from cocktail hour to the end, which only costed us less than $8.00 per guest. Such a good deal!
Ron and his team are wonderful. They really care about the customers, took care of them and tried the best to meet their requirement.

Just great people to work with. Words can't describe how accommodating and how friendly they are. I won't be able to squeeze everything in weddingwire's short review box, but Ron, Starla, and Duane are just good people who have that "mom & pop" style service. They were the cheapest amongst the other catering companies, but not sacrificing quality of service and product. The price they gave you is the price you pay (minus the rentals), including cake cutting fees, corkage fee, etc. I'd highly recommend using this company, especially if you are having an event at Castle Green in Pasadena, CA. They'll work with ANY vendors, restaurants, bakeries, etc. You don't need to have them be the restaurant providing the food.

On September 24th 2016, my husband and I had our wedding at the Romanesque Room. We couldn't be more impressed with the services that they provided. Ron and Sterla were absolutely wonderful! Their communication with us was great. Every question and concerned we had, they took care of right away and answered every question. The venue was absolutely gorgeous! I can honestly say that this was my dream wedding! The set up was beautiful! Not only that, but Duane and his crew did a fantastic job setting up the food and making sure that our night ran smooth. We couldnt be happier with the way everything turned out. It was indeed a dream come true. Thank you Ron, Sterla, Duane and the crew for making our wedding perfect!

Ron, Starla, and the entire Castle Catering staff were amazing to work with and the food was top notch (especially the Vegetable Wellington)! From the beginning, Ron sat down with us to explain everything involved and continued this trend throughout the entire process, putting our minds at ease. The ability to choose from various local restaurants for specialty food items made the experience extra special and personal.

Ron, Starla and everyone at Castle Catering was just amazing. They were very upfront about all costs and explained the contracts extensively. There were so many options to choose from, including using the restaurant partners program. Every time we called or came in, Ron was so friendly and helpful. I felt very comfortable throughout the process. We had a beautiful buffet for our wedding, and I know everyone enjoyed the food as well as the presentation. Top-notch service all the way!

Starla and Ron were very accommodating to our busy schedules to meet for various items. Service provided by staff during the time of the event was excellent and very attentive. Food was great, make sure you get the mashed potatoes with your meal! Their flexibility and thoroughness with outside vendors was great! We actually got compliments from outside vendors. The transition from ceremony to outside patio area was smooth and seamless.

What an outstanding value! We shopped around at churches, wineries, country clubs, the Queen Mary, and other sites for an elegant, fun, and well catered venue, and we are SO glad we found the Romanesque Room and Castle Catering. The setting is Golden Age Hollywood elegant, the photo backgrounds available on premises are excellent, and the quality and selection for the meal were outstanding. Ron and Starla Hobbs are a delightful couple to engage in the wedding planning, and proved to be so flexible, resourceful, and helpful. Their contribution to our wedding was flawlessly executed, and we got so many compliments from our guests concerning the classy atmosphere and delicious food. All that, and it came at a much better price than so many other venues we investigated. Be sure to use the optional LED lighting (brings the room to life!) and include the mashed potato bar. Your guests will LOVE that!

I had my wedding reception here a few weeks ago, and I could not recommend The Romanesque Room with greater enthusiasm!
VENUE: The site has four main areas - the entryway, the bar/cocktail area, the main event site, and an outdoor space. For our 130ish wedding guests, there was more than enough space to walk around in each area. The main area is quite striking with the arches, and many of our guests commented on how unique and beautiful our reception was. I appreciated the openness of the place (vs. other venues where everything is located in just one room and can become quite stuffy).
COST: The proprietors, Ron and Starla, were very willing to work within our budget. We decided to have a buffet dinner catered by Castle Catering, which is their catering company, although they also offer catering by local restaurants. For alcohol, it's BYO; we went with their recommended vendor, and it ended up costing us less than $7 per person for a full open bar for the night! They require that everything be done in cash/check (no credit cards).
LOCATION: The venue is located in the heart of downtown Pasadena, which is a huge bonus. Many of our guests were flying in from out of state, and we wanted to pick a venue that was in a safe and entertaining part of the LA-area.
EASE: I saved the best for last! I planned the wedding from across the country, and Ron and Starla truly coordinated every aspect of our reception. We discussed every detail of the reception, and they are very clear and good at explaining these details. They let us borrow their cake stand and table numbers, free of charge. They extended our dance floor, also free of charge. We were able to drop things off (such as menus, guest book, etc.) a few days before the reception, and everything was set up according to our discussions. During the day of the reception, the entire staff was extremely professional and kind. Our reception truly went off without a hitch, and that is due to Ron and Starla!
