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!

We searched high and low, made spreadsheets and checked out place after place and after our exhaustive search I have to say that I really could not recommend a better venue to work with. The entire staff was not just helpful they were an absolutely essential part of our wedding planning and execution. Ron, Starla, Duane and the rest of the Romanesque room crew were thorough, professional and most of all incredibly kind. Its rare that somebody is just as amazing on the follow through as they are in the sales pitch and these folks deliver. They will make sure you get what you need and have fun while you do it! We had a little over 100 guests, five different vendors and made almost all the decoration ourselves and the venue made sure it all went off without a hitch. They were available and cooperative with every part of the planning process as well as the teardown on the big day. They even recommended the perfect caterer! As for the location, you can't find something as great as pasadena in the greater L.A. area. ESPECIALLY if you have out of town guests. Its a way for them to come to L.A. without having to deal with the craziness of it. Plus there's a TON of great hotels, bars, parks and restaurants all over the place. A true gem and of all the decisions we made during our wedding planning process easily one of the best.

Ron, Starla, & Duane were all absolutely great! Starla was on top of the communications, and always provided a quick response to our numerous questions. Ron's extensive catering knowledge was invaluable, and even though we only used his catering services for our appetizers, his guidance helped us out w/ the outside food caterer we hired. Ron even went the extra mile to meet w/ our caterer & coordinate the food delivery logistics to ensure everything went smoothly on our wedding day. The DJ & Alcohol vendors Ron & Starla recommended were also a pleasure to work with. Their services went seamlessly thanks in part to already having a working professional relationship with the Romanesque Room. Duane was the MVP the week leading up to the wedding. He provided us with the progress of the setup throughout the week, and made any necessary changes based on our feedback. We were lucky enough to be able to prep. & assemble a few of our decorations the day before the wedding thanks in part to the flexibility provided to us by Romanesque Room. Our wedding reception was great & we highly recommend the Romanesque Room & their team! Thanks again!

The entire staff was just wonderful to work with over at The Romanesque Room. Ron and Starla were extremely accomodating with all of our needs. Starla in particular is a bride's best friend. She was such a doll. Any request or question I had was answered very quickly which allowed me to work more efficiently with all my other vendors. The main man, Duane Hall, is the go-to guy for all venue-related requests. He was dilligent, friendly and above all eager to make our wedding day as perfect as can be. You really can't ask for better customer service. Also, as a bonus...since they've accumulated a lot of
things over the years, they let you use whatever they have that you need at no extra cost. For instance, we had our ceremony outside in the garden area. They let us borrow their wedding arbor. We also borrowed their gorgeous cake pan. Such a wonderful group to work with while we planned our wedding. I highly recommend this venue and its staff!

When we started planning our wedding, my fiancé and I had one objective: and that was to make the process as simple as possible! Thanks to the staff at the Romanesque Room, this objective was met.
We first came across the Romanesque Room through a wedding website.I sent an email inquiry to receive more information and within 24 hours, Ron (the owner) gave me a call. He patiently discussed with me every aspect of renting the venue, and answered all my questions. We set up an appointment to go visit the venue in person, as soon as we arrived we were graciously received by him. Right away he showcased a very professional yet laid back demeanor. He went over budget numbers, catering, set-ups, etc. He also allows you to bring your own liquor. An option to provide an open bar at a convenient price? Why, yes please! Needless to say my fiancé and I left with a very good feeling after our first visit and decided to lock in the place. After that, it couldn’t have been easier. We had a couple of meetings leading up to the event. Ron and his lovely wife - Starla were always available to go over our needs. If you need something extra, the chances are they have it at your disposal and free of charge (easles, cake stand, etc). The day of the actual wedding my fiancé and I did not have to worry about a thing. Everything was set up exactly the way we had discussed.Our event coordinators that day were always on hand to provide anything we needed. One thing we also fancied from the venue is that besides the banquet area, there is also a bar area and an outdoor patio. Our guests had a good time mingling at the different areas throughout the evening. All of the comments from our guests after the wedding were positive; they all loved the ambiance and the staff's attentiveness. I can't recommend this place enough for your event needs! They really make sure that you have a good time - and if that is your goal, well then you have come to the right place.
