Cafe L'Europe was absolutely perfect! I picked Cafe L'Europe as my dinner reception venue based on its atmosphere from the arched doorways to the Spanish terra cotta tile, just very warm and relaxing.Sent on 05/13/2014
Little did I know it was going to be where I would get married. They had agreed to be the Plan B if it rained out my beach ceremony. Within a phone call, all the necessary changes were made, and the transition was so smooth.
The appetizers/food were exceptional! All of our family and guests were raving about how great everything was. The staff at Cafe L'Europe were very accommodating. Hands down, Cafe L'Europe has my vote and I cannot wait to return on my anniversary!

We couldn't have been more pleased with the way our event was handled at Cafe L'Europe. Due to circumstances beyond our control we had a very short window of time to make all of the necessary post-wedding arrangements. The team at CLE was responsive and and made everything work despite the limited advance notice.Sent on 01/14/2018
The food at CLE was very very good and the bacon wrapped scallops appetizer could win awards - guests were fighting over the last few pieces! The owner (Ron, I believe) was knowledgeable and helpful and could not have been more accommodating to our needs. The wedding gift of champagne for our daughter was incredible and very much appreciated. Kristina was also extremely helpful and attentive and provided terrific advice and counsel on the details. Our lead server (Crissie, I believe) deserves special mention for her patience a couple of the guests, her sense of humor and her attentive service. CLE is fortunate to have such high quality employees.
While this was a joyous event celebrating our daughters marriage, a family tragedy in November made this dinner/reception very important to us all. The team at CLE delivered and we will be forever grateful.
