    Outstanding Service & Outstanding Food

    We had to change our wedding reception plans to be hosted at Cafe Cortina at the last minute due to the pandemic, and wow was it amazing. Kelley and the rest of the staff is a dream to work with. So professional, polite, and accommodating. Even when it started hailing, no one blinked an eye, just did what had to be done to keep everyone safe. Kelley literally took care of everything so we could have a stress-free day.

    The food is also absolutely amazing. So fresh and expertly prepared. All of our guests raved that this was the best wedding meal they've ever had. We had the entire restaurant to ourselves, and felt very safe the entire time. There's also a great outdoor patio space available as well that would be great for large groups. We barely needed to bring-in any decorations because the space is so beautiful!

    Wedding ceremony and reception

    My daughter wanted a small wedding with a casual vibe and Cafe Cortina was perfect. Planning a wedding during Covid was very stressful, but Kelley remained our calm support throughout. Keeping our guests as safe as possible was a top priority and Cafe Cortina accommodated our request to reschedule. They also allowed us to put a tent in the parking lot so guests could remain outside in case of rain. The venue is beautiful, and the food is fantastic. I highly recommend Cafe Cortina for your special event. You will not be disappointed.
