Amazing! Food and Venue
The food, the space, where do I even start? We had around 110 guests, all of the recommended vendors we used were just amazing to work with, the food was RAVED about (I wish I could have gotten to eat more!) everyone was great to work with. The servers were so wonderful throughout the entire night. The space is so great you really don’t need that much in terms of decor, we just did tons of flowers and candles and it looked lovely. Absolutely would recommend!!Sent on 09/25/2019
Jiddi Space & Courtyard's reply:Thanks Kathleen, we really enjoyed hosting your wedding! Such a fun day for us here at Sitti. The past year in planning all came together beautifully.

The Jiddi Courtyard
This space was perfect for our Rehearsal Dinner! It is a beautiful location and the food was amazing. Devan was a great communicator and was very helpful in making sure this event was a success. Would definitely recommend this space for an event!Sent on 11/17/2018

We have been a part of many event at the Jiddi Space & Courtyard and it is one of Raleigh's hidden event space gems. There are very few courtyards in the area and no others in downtown Raleigh. Of course the food is unbelievable good since this is a part of Sitti! The people that run the events are as good as they come and are very accommodating. Awesome space!
We love working with our friends over at the Jiddi Space! Not only is it a beautiful space inside (the Jiddi space has an old world charm) and out (gorgeous courtyard), but the food is delicious. On top of that, the Event Managers - Amy and Devan - always ensure a quality experience from beginning to end. Our customers are always happy. You can’t beat that!
We absolutely love working with this venue - and our brides love it too! The atmosphere is wonderful and the staff is always accommodating and helpful. Not to mention we've heard rave reviews about their food! We will happily continue working with this wonderful group of people.
