I would just like to say how PLEASED my husband and I were with Venetian Terrace. We must have interviewed 6 wedding venues before finding Venetian Terrace and we are SO GLAD that we did. We worked directly with the owner Sasha and he was wonderful. Unlike the other venues we interviewed, Sasha was flexible with everything. We had A LOT of unusual requests because our families are so demanding and he was able to accommodate every request. We had 125 people, which at first we thought it might be a little crammed in the venue, but once we saw the table set up the day of the wedding it was perfect and we even had a huge area in the center for a dance floor... our families love to dance, so this was important to us. We did not have too much money for an open bar, so Sasha worked out a special package to accommodate our guests needs and everyone got plenty to drink. The bartender was very attentive to all our guests and kept us posted on our bar tab so we wouldnt go over our budgeted amount (booze gets expensive!!!). The food was EXCELLENT. We got the buffet with a prime roast beef carving station and our guest loved it. We got compliments all night about the tasty food. The service was also great. There was never an empty dish, empty glass or dirty napkin left on the table, the staff kept the venue spotless of clutter and trash throughout the whole wedding.

Now the best part of all... the venue and surrounding area is GORGEOUS! ... and the canal is the cherry on top... it was so romantic and the pictures turned out more beautiful than I could have ever imagined. We saved alot of money on decorations because you just didnt need that much in such a beautiful venue.

I would HIGHLY recommend this venue to any bride that want big bang for her buck. And getting to work directly with the owner instead of some sales person was definitely a big plus.

Venetian Terrace was the perfect wedding venue. It is unique and provides such great flexibility, fusing both indoor and outdoor components. The food was also absolutely amazing, the staff were exceptional and the communication during the reception was excellent. We did a buffet dinner; the lead staff member brought us (the bride/groom) a dinner plate for us. We brought our own cake, which they cut for us (a service that would either be charged or not allowed at other venues). They allowed us to bring all of our decor items the day before and allowed us to keep it their overnight so that we didn't have to pack everything up on the night of our wedding.

One thing to note is to be clear on driving and parking directions as Venetian Terrace cannot be seen from the road - you have to take some stairs down towards the canal. We placed signs on the streets on where to park and how to get to the reception. This should not be a deterrent from booking Venetian Terrace - just something to note!

After searching for so many months for the perfect venue that is affordable, we were so blessed to have found Venetian Terrace. We highly recommend Venetian Terrace.

I cannot say enough good things about this venue. It's gorgeous, right on the canal, secluded. Such a lovely, lovely venue. And affordable. I did a lot of research before selecting the Venetian Terrace, and I can tell you that it greatly outshines every other venue of comparable pricing and probably most (if not all) of the more expensive ones.

The service is great, too. Renetta was always available by email to answer my questions (and boy did I have a lot). They also helped get the photo booth in the reception space and set up on time DESPITE the fact that our photo booth people were two hours late and still had not even brought their equipment into the building at the time that the ceremony was due to start in the courtyard. When your venue steps up to fix problems caused by some other vendor—that’s what I call good service.

The food was wonderful! We got lots and lots of compliments from our guests. The alcohol service was great, too. We definitely feel like we got our money’s worth. The bartender was fun and courteous to my guests.

Also, I must stress the fact that you get the venue ALL DAY LONG! Being able decorate early—then move on to get dressed knowing everything was in place really lowered my stress level that day. And when rain threatened my decorations, the VT staff stepped up to the plate. I had an arch decorated with flowers and my florist suggested I get a tarp to protect it if it rained before the ceremony—but to only use it as long as necessary so as not to smash the flowers. I left a tarp just in case and asked Renetta to put the tarp out if necessary. It rained before the ceremony—while I was in my hotel room getting ready. I could see the courtyard from my hotel balcony at the Omni. Just as I asked—the VT staff put the tarp up when it rained and took it down as soon as it was over. I was very impressed. They had no idea I was watching :)

I would recommend the VT to any other bride—whole-heartedly.

Due to unforseen circumstances we had to delay the start of our special occasion. The staff at Venetian Terrace not only was able to accomodate our dilemma, but also had the foresight to delay the prepration of food to ensure everything was fresh at the new start time. They also provided options for guests to pass time while they waited for the new start time.

And all of this at no extra cost to us!!!!!

Words can't express how overjoyed I was with the overall experience.

We fell in love with the venue and its surroundings from the moment we got to the venue. The property is really unique and situated on very private canal. Our ceremony was outside and we had no issues with on-lookers or traffic. Sasha, the GM, is exceptional. He made it so easy for us. He delivered on all the promises. There are not many venues that would cater a Russian style wedding, Sasha was super flexible on food choices, setup/decorations, and time. Sasha worked with us on a custom menue and all of our guests and vendors really enjoyed the food. He is really pleasant to work with and will go out of his way to make sure your special day is perfect! He was always available by phone and met with us every time we were in town.

To all the Russian brides in Dallas, you finally have an alternative!

Our wedding at the Venetian Terrace turned out wonderful. Sasha and Mona were so great to work with and very professional. It was like Sasha and Mona knew exactly what I wanted... from the way they set up the tables to the precise placement of the table center pieces. Sasha even recommended a fantastic florist that was very familiar with the space and created an even more beautiful flower arrangement than I could have ever imagined. All of our guests commented on the quality of the service and the delicious food... they said other wedding venues usually have very generic food, but that the Venetian food tasted like it was made from scratch. It also felt like we were in Venice, Italy once the sun went down and water from the canal sparkled in the moonlight. The outside setting was perfect for our wedding pictures. Thank you to Sasha and Mona for helping me create the wedding of my dreams!!

I was VERY apprehensive about selecting the Venetian Terrace as my wedding ceremony/reception venue due the reviews on this website. The venue is absolutely beautiful and you can rent it from 10AM-2AM the day of your wedding! It is the perfect place for a DIY type wedding/reception. Mona and Sasha were great throughout the entire planning process. Because I was a little apprehensive due the reviews I had read, I was very clear with them about what I wanted during my ceremony, reception and included specific instructions regarding the bar. They accommodated everything I needed! We did not have any issues during our ceremony or reception. The food was excellent and service was amazing. Our drinks were never empty and they were extremely tentative to the bride/groom especially as well as the rest of our guests. We did not have any issues with the bar and everyone said their drinks were really good. I am sure maybe they had some issues in the past, but everything with our wedding went great! My husband and I had an amazing wedding and had SO much fun! Thank you to Sasha, Mona and all their staff for making it an unforgettable day and night!

We had our wedding/reception at the Venetian Terrace on August 25, 2012. Sasha (owner) and Mona (manager) were terrific to work with. The venue is beautiful, the food was great, Sasha created beautiful cakes for us, and our reception went off without a hitch.

Not sure why some people have had negative experiences with the staff...perhaps there were communication difficulties. Neither Sasha or Mona speak English as their first language, though they are both certainly proficient. However, just to be sure, I did find myself asking a couple of questions twice. I tend to be very organized and was careful to cover every detail with Mona before our wedding, but we had no problems. I thought the staff was very professional and friendly.

We had about 55 guests and several of them mentioned that ours was one of the best weddings they had ever been to - I know that was at least partly because of the great venue! I highly recommend Venetian Terrace if you want an intimate, beautiful setting for a small wedding.

My husband and I loved our wedding at Venetian Terrace! Located just minutes from Dallas on Hwy 114, travelling to Venetian Terrace was very easy for our families. There were plenty of good hotels nearby for our family members who travelled from out of state. The venue was so beautiful on our wedding day and all the pictures turned out really nice. The food was not only the best wedding food we ever had, but some of the best we ever had anywhere! The staff were professional, courteous, and really went out of their way to accomodate us. My husband and I highly recommend Venetian Terrace to anyone looking for a wedding venue that offers a great value, a unique setting and delicous food.
