One of a Kind

Our day was absolutely perfect! The team at Destination Grille went above and beyond to make our day extra special. All the extra touches from personalized signage (welcome sign at entrance, bar menu, menu cards), His and Her cocktails and a one on one with the chef for a menu tasting are just a few of the “extras” the team did to make our day a little more memorable. The terrace turned dance floor was the perfect way to spend our reception! We danced the night away as the sun set and captured some of the best photos with our guests. We couldn’t imagine a better space and can’t recommend DG and their team enough!

Professional and Memorable

During the planning stage of the reception they made us feel at ease with their professionalism and experience making us feel confident that they heard what we wanted to make our event special and unforgettable. Upon the day of the reception the staff went above and beyond being flexible when we needed extra seating and responding to last minute issues that came up. We can't say enough good things about Destination Grille and their staff. Stacy and Mark, the event planners, were instrumental in the success of making it such a wonderful special day.
