The Rotunda is an absolutely BEAUTIFUL venue. My husband I got married on June, 30th of this year. The staff at the Rotunda was amazing. They were patient with my requests, made sure everything was set up just perfect, and stayed in very close contact with me throughout the entire wedding process. I can't say enough good about this beautiful venue and the extraordinary staff!
Chef Jack's Catering which is in conjunction with Rotunda is hands down the best food we've ever had at a wedding. I received raving reviews from all of my guests and even my photographer about the deliciousness and uniqueness of the food. We had appetizers served at our wedding as well and those were a huge hit! Just the way they were presented was really neat and the food itself, wonderful!
My wedding day was absolutely perfect and the staff at the Rotunda helped make it such. Thank you so much for all the care you provided us and the emmense attention to detail you displayed!

If you're thinking about The Rotunda, you are in luck. They are FANTASTIC.

FACILITY: Landscaping, cleanliness, room arrangement, and decor were all perfect. It’s a gorgeous facility with heritage and a perfect place to hold a reception. Bathrooms are roomy and a locked room upstairs allows the wedding party to store things. An elevator allows easy access to all floors, and the front steps offer a beautiful picture. They have gold Chiavari chairs and uplighting, and the linen packages are beautiful.

THE STAFF: I cannot emphasize enough how wonderful and polished the staff at the Rotunda are. Eric was excellent at meeting at offhand times, organizing, offering suggestions, and generally being positive and knowledgeable about what he--and Chef Jack's--are doing. They even have a list of recommended vendors, which helped us find our florist, DJ, and photographer. Lisa, our day-of contact, was a wonderful organizer and positive personality. The best part was that for dinner, she made sure we got to try all our food! There was no "you won't have time to eat on your wedding day" nonsense here! We were able to try all the delicious foods, and the staff made sure we had water and everything we needed.

THE FOOD: Our passed appetizers were delicious. For dinner, we used stations, which I absolutely ADORE. We chose the Meditteranean station, the carving station, and the macaroni & cheese station. Chef Jack's was wonderful about changing out one intended mac & cheese dish because I wanted a different style. We also had a salad station, a fruit/veggie station, and a coffee station. All the food was delicious, fresh, and beautifully prepared, and even our more traditional guests said it was delightful. We brought in a sheet cake and they were able to slice it... and then they added a chocolate covered strawberry. Heaven!

Chef Jack's and The Rotunda are perfect. I enjoyed myself so much and had such an easy time with them. Do yourself a favor and book them now!

The Rotunda is a beautiful place, and was just the right size for my wedding ceremony and reception. My husband and I received a lot of compliments from guests about how beautiful the building was, and it was nicely air-conditioned despite the heat that day. If you're planning a big wedding with over 250 guests, this might not be the best place for you because it is a little on the small side. But if you're planning on a wedding of 100-250 guests, it's perfect for the size and the cost of having a wedding there. For the elegance of the place and the exemplary service, you get a lot of bang for your buck! I definitely recommend The Rotunda to anyone looking for a wedding ceremony/reception site!

The staff at the Rotunda did an amazing job at our wedding! We couldn't have asked for anything better! From the time we first set up a meeting for a venue tour to the end of our wedding night the entire staff made sure every detail was perfect and that our day went smoothly. We got so many compliments on the dinner and the entire space in general. Wouldn't have changed a thing!

The facility is very beautiful and historic. Our group of 125 had lots of room to eat and dance with space to spare. From the first visit we felt very secure that things were going to go smoothly and be memorable. The food was fabulous, the vendors were dealt with for us, the staff assisted with unloading and packing up supplies. We had the rehearsal, the ceremony and the dinner/dance all at The Rotunda. Spacious city parking garage just across the street, rehearsal dinner at Mia's one block away and family stayed in the Clarke Hotel one block away. Transition from ceremony to dinner was less than 15 minutes. They contacted and coordinated all vendors for us and made us feel very special. Candy (the wedding coordinator) was nearby to provide smooth transitions thoughout the evening without fail. The bar and wait staff were elegantly attired and very professional and buffet staff kept things hot and well supplied. We chose to save some money with a buffet dinner, and the staff were very efficient at keeping a flow through the line. Food was to die for and even looked pretty. Coat check was worth the extra expense since wedding was Jan 8. No surprise to me that The Rotunda won yet another award Jan 13! Our memories are well documented in pictures and this wedding will be the talk of the family for years to come. SO GLAD we chose this venue- I have another daughter and will return to The Rotunda for sure some day! Bathrooms in the basement but accessible via elevator and bridal prep space is a bit small but the girls were treated as special guests. Wish we could have used the rotunda outdoor veranda and front steps for an all wedding party picture but weather did not permit.

Chef Jack's and the Rotunda was fabulous! Chef Jack's is the sole caterer for the Rotunda and they handle all of the venue planning as well. The Rotunda is a beautiful venue - warm and inviting yet striking at the same time! Chef Jack's service was impeccable the whole way through!! They were responsive, available and accommodating during planning. For the rehearsal and the wedding they made it easy for everyone and had plenty of staff on hand for both. The food was excellent and I received so many compliments on it - many said it was the best food they ever had at a wedding. I couldn't be more pleased all the way around!! Way to go Chef Jack's!

From the moment I saw photos online of this venue I knew I wanted my wedding there. And as soon as we met with Eric at Chef Jack's we knew it was meant to be. They will take care of you and guide you through the planning process. We were able to plan and pull of a successful wedding in just two months. Looking back on it, we wouldn't have done it any other way. The venue is elegant and gorgeous. The food is EXCELLENT. Our guests had nothing but wonderful things to say.

Eric and the entire staff at the Rotunda were nothing short of excellent during the whole planning experience and event. The catering by Chef Jack and his team was exquisite and creative. The team at the Rotunda never missed a detail; they were attentive and the venue looked beautiful. We had our ceremony and reception here and I wouldn't have done it any other way. The guests appreciated not having to relocate and find something to do for a few hours and the turnover time was extremely quick. All in all, the Rotunda and Chef Jack's catering was the best decision we made during the wedding planning process and we only hope that someone we know chooses to hold their wedding or event there so we can go back!
