The most perfect venue with the best team
Cafe La Cave more than exceeded our expectations for our wedding- I wish I could give more than 5 stars. To be honest, I was hesitant at first because I had always dreamed of a downtown wedding (which sadly my budget couldn’t afford) but this venue and the team were far better than anything I had ever dreamed. Randy, Carrie, and Kim are the most amazing team and they really made me feel like the most special bride in the world throughout the whole process. They really understood what I wanted and because they are a family owned venue, they were extremely accommodating and flexible in any requests- they really make an effort to make every wedding different and unique. The rehearsal was actually fun for everyone and the day of I was not worried at all about any logistics. I knew the team had it covered and could handle any last minute issues without stressing me out.
The highlight of the night was Randy, 100%. He was the emcee and coordinator for the night and made the entire night flow perfectly. From queuing up speeches, keeping the food on schedule (by the way the food was AMAZING), and doing all of the introductions, he really made the night seem so easy and super special. He is also a man of MANY talents and actually sang a few songs with the band! At least 10 people came up to me throughout the night to compliment him and someone asked me, and I quote “who is Uncle Randy and how do I get one?”.
Finally, I will just say that our wedding night was the best night of our lives. So many guests told me it was by far the best wedding they have ever been to. I could go on and on about all the things I loved, but I will just leave it at this: if you want to have the best wedding ever and leave your guests raving, have it at Cafe La Cave!

Beyond my Dream Wedding!
On December 15, 2018 I married by best friend at Cafe La Cave.
We worked with Randy. He was incredible and made our wedding perfect!
We married in the foyer under the staircase. We wanted a unique wedding and added special touches. We had Mexican guitarists on the stairs landing above us. They played for our guests and also played us in and out after the ceremony.
Randy created a step by step itinerary that was followed by all making the wedding and reception flawless start to finish. He made sure we practiced and felt fully comfortable.
My family and friends loved it! They cannot stop talking about the wedding on how it was beautiful, elegant and with fantastic food. We had passed appetizers and champagne for an hour before dinner. They were out of this world scrumptious. The wait staff made everyone feel special and elegant the whole night through.
The food was phenomenal! My husband and I are foodies and we wanted our guests to enjoy and love their dinner so we picked our favorites (believe me this was hard everything is fabulous). The guests had a choice between New York strip, orange roughy or chicken with two awesome mushroom sauces. The guests raved about the food! Wedding food that was out of this world! This was extremely important to us.
Everything was perfectly ready to go. I didn't have to worry about anything at all. Randy made sure everything was in place and my florist, photographers and DJ loved working with Randy and the staff at the Cave.
I would highly recommend Cafe La Cave for any event and also for an elegant dinning experience in the cave. We are so happy we choose the Cafe La Cave for our special day we will cherish our memories forever!
I wanted to share this review with all future brides looking for a perfect place. Enjoy and congratulations, May you have a wonderful and blessed wedding too!!!!

Cafe La Cave is one of the best kept secrets in the wedding industry! Their venue is absolutely incredible in every way. Randy and Carrie were wonderful throughout the wedding planning process, meeting with us several times and being in constant communication via email. They helped our vision come to life. We were looking for a venue that was "all-inclusive" and they definitely took care of all the behind the scenes work for us. They helped us perfect the small details that helped personalize our wedding, and did so up until the last minute!
Cafe La Cave is an amazing venue with a VERY reasonable price tag. We looked at several venues and this by far was the best overall value. Even better, the quality of the food and service was not compromised. We received SO many compliments about how delicious the food was, and the service was very prompt and professional. Randy emceed for us during the reception and was fantastic. He has a somewhat unique sequence of events but it flows well and makes for a very distinctive reception.
We, along with our guests had an absolute blast and Cafe La Cave gave us an unforgettable wedding. Thank you!
Impeccable service and professionalism to match the fabulous food and recently updated decor. Highly recommended!
