Maggie (event manager/coordinator) did a fantastic job with our wedding. The day was completely stress free and just the way I had planned. She and her team set-up my centerpieces, guest book, gift table, and program table beautifully and without charging extra. The team did a great job making sure guests needs were meet throughout the night. Kids at the reception were served earlier than the adults making their parents very pleased with service. Service was quick and accurate. The food was exceptional. Many of our guests complimented us on the outstanding food. Overall, the Hilton's team did an amazing job with our wedding.

The food served by the Chef and staff at the Hilton Milwaukee City Center was fantastic. Our duo of steak and chicken hit the spot for our guests! It was refreshing to have a team be willing to work with us all the way to the very last moment to ensure everything was the way we wanted it. The staff were professional, extremely responsive, and friendly. My husband and I were only able to get a quick 5 bites of our dinner in before greeting our guests, but found the food delicious. My only critique would be that my Maid of Honour specifically asked for our food to be brought up to our room (since we weren't able to eat much during the day, or during the reception), and it never made its way up there. However, our guests seemed to really enjoy the meal, which was very important to us. Additionally, for dealing with allergies, the team was fantastic - they were able to prepare food in a safe manner so that all could enjoy. Overall, very satisfied.
