Arlington's was a perfect wedding venue! The food was great, the drinks were good, their sound system was easy to use, the space is already beautifully decorated with a wonderful layout so it's simple to add your own details to make the space your own, and the prices were very reasonable. Ebben (the owner) was a joy to work with and made the entire process incredibly easy; whenever we had questions he was quick to respond with added feedback and tips. By working with Ebben, we figured out the best way to maximize the space without additional setup or changes between ceremony and reception and we still had comfortable room for about 60 guests, all the assorted side tables (gifts, cake, etc.), and an area to be used as the dance floor. The entire staff did an amazing job and was incredibly accommodating to all of our guests. The only negative I can think of is that we should have ordered more food (the guests loved the appetizers far more than what we were expecting, so they ran out quickly)! Throughout the planning process we looked at venues from St. Louis to Chicago, but this gem in our own backyard was definitely the best choice.Sent on 11/20/2017

Ebben is great to work with. Super easy going and very accommodating and responsive. He always said "Yeah, We can do that," which is always great to hear when you are the bride. The food is delicious! Everyone who attended the wedding raved about the food. Even the most picky guests at the reception were pleased. The prices are just right too and won't break the bank. The space itself is gorgeous and it photographs very well. I'd like to describe it as quaint, quirky, and inviting. It is also very versatile and there are lots of possibilities when it comes to setup. We had our ceremony on one side and our reception on the other and it worked out perfect. Overall, it is a great venue and I'd highly recommend it for any function.Sent on 08/25/2016

Great service/hosting - I was here for a wedding reception and they managed everything in a friendly, timely and professional manner.Sent on 06/21/2017
The only issues I can imagine anyone having with this business is it's exclusivity due to its very high demand and few openings.
If anyone was on the fence in choosing this as a venue for an event, don't be discouraged.. just keep trying!
