Amazing customer service and beautiful location

Malik at barrister gardens did a great job. He was very professional and great help throughout the whole process. He did a phenomenal job on the wedding day. We did not hire a wedding coordinator and Malik stepped in and helped whenever he could make us not worry about anything in regards to the hall.

I truly believe choosing Barrister Gardens was the best choice for us and am so thankful for their stuff and their administration to work out all the details.
they even were able to accommodate vegetarian options for more than 100 attendees out of 300.

Great job Barrister Gardens and Malik.

A Great Venue!!

Barrister Gardens was a great choice for our reception! The banquet hall was renovated earlier this year, so it has a sleek and modern look now. The lobby is stunning and the ballrooms have bright white walls and floors, which makes it very easy to create any look you want. The bar has been modernized as well and is pretty large, so there were no long bar lines or congestion around the bar area all night. I worked with Alexis, the owner’s daughter, to book the first two ballrooms for my wedding. I had enough room for 185 guests, a vendor table, photo booth, gift table, sweets table, cake table, and a sweetheart table on a platform with plenty of room for guests to move around. Alexis is very helpful and flexible. It was easy to change things up until the date the final count was due and I even talked to the chef for an hour as he helped me understand the best menu options for what I was trying to achieve. I selected NY strip steak for my beef option, Chicken Marsala for my chicken option, garden salad with house dressing, and bow tie pasta with garlic and olive oil. You also get a full bar for the entire 6 hours. You can upgrade the bar, but we went with the standard full bar and guests were happy. Everyone said the food was really good and the servers were organized and responsive. The room looked amazing and Alexis checked on us periodically throughout the night (we also had our own day of coordinator). If you are lookin for a modern venue, with reasonable prices, good food, and the flexibility to create your own unique vision, Barrister Gardens is a great choice! The only two areas I would recommend for improvement are the approach to the food tasting and providing steak knives if the NY strip steak option is selected. My tasting was not until two weeks before my wedding and I had to call to inquire about it. Waiting until that close to the wedding date may be too stressful for some brides. Scheduling the tasting soon after the deposit is made would allow couples to finalize their menus, include specific entrees in their invitations, and order their menus cards earlier. With regards to the steak knives, I am not sure If it was just an oversight, but none of the guests had them for their steak. I had to ask one of the servers to bring my husband a steak knife. The server was prompt and brought one right away for my husband, but the guests just had their regular knives to use on the steak. It didn’t stop anyone from eating the steak, but if you opt for the NY strip steak option, make sure you request for all guests who select the steak option to also have steak knives. Overall, it was still a great venue and Alexis was awesome to work with.
