Tina, Pepe and staff made our destination wedding reception amazing and memorable. They welcomed us and treated us like family. Everything is first class from the venue to the food. Years later we still have people talking about the beautiful venue, atmosphere and food. Tina was very flexible in some last minute changes for us and we couldn't be more thankful. We would highly recommend Guadalajara Grill as a must book venue for anyone looking for authenticity and s memorable wedding party. Cannot say enough! Tina and Pepe are great people, to this day, that still check in on my family to see if we are doing well. Glad to be able to call them friends. That is a quality in businesses you don't find often. Share you big event with them, you will not be sorry.Sent on 09/28/2018

Amazing Reception at Guadalajara Grill
Working with Tina H at Guadalajara Grill was the best experience. The reception area is very cozy, with a max capacity of 96 people, which was perfect for our needs. The food was amazing (beef & chicken fajita buffet) and the ambiance of this older building was just what we needed for our wedding theme (Mexican Fiesta). Tina was always available for any questions I had leading up to our wedding and met with us the week before to go over all the details. She was so thorough and really cared about our event going to plan. She was a great coordinator also, making sure everything ran smoothly the day of. My husband and I were so happy with how everything turned out and owe a great deal of that to Tina. Would definitely recommend!Sent on 10/25/2018

We had a wedding anniversary dinner at Guadalajara Grill, and everything went smoothly. The place was beautiful, and Tina was very helpful in getting everything set up for us. The food was great too.Sent on 09/26/2018
