Love this team!
We worked with Omar & Maria this year to produce one our favorite events yet - Youtube + Google’s Holiday Party: Fiesta Like There’s No Mañana! It was truly a pleasure working with this venue, each member of Candela’s team, and supporting a family owned business during our busy holiday season. We couldn’t have brought this epic production to life without them - each and every individual on their staff went above & beyond to ensure everything about the night was a success. They knocked it out of the park and truly care about what they do. Thank you so much Candela - we can’t wait to work with you again!Sent on 12/19/2018

Great place for an event
I have visited the restaurant many times. Last night we held an event for Horace Mann 8th grade graduation party in the upstairs hall. Excellent place. Highly recommendSent on 05/31/2019

Omar and Hector made the venue look absolutely beautiful for our guests. I made a last minute request that the room be green and they made it happen. This was my first time planning an event, and Omar was so patient with me along the way. He answered all of my questions, and was always so patient. Our guests were transported by bus, and one of our busses had some issues along the way. Omar and Hector could tell that I was very stressed and they were very supportive and told me to let them know if they could help in any way. I would definitely plan another event with them!Sent on 04/04/2019
