We looked at almost 20 vendors for our April wedding, and we got lucky with Lido Banquets. They had the best price for the best type of meal, and they accommodated so many things for us. First of all, they are located in Jefferson Park, right on Milwaukee, and we couldn't have picked a better location for us and our guests. The great thing about it was that there is only one banquet room. I was worried about sharing banquets with other wedding parties, and this is pretty much what sold me. The second HUGE thing about this banquet was the price. We looked at the menu options, and the Manager, Joanna, said we could either do Individual Plates, or Family Style, which is the same price......WAIT WHAAAAT? that was definitely the best menu pricing in the whole Chicago-Northwest Suburban area.Sent on 04/22/2016
Other great things about Lido, were that they had a bridal suite/coat check (whichever one you wanted to use it as), a nice looking bar, a huge dance floor, and updated/easy-to-access bathrooms for our older guests. The tasting process was a bit unique, since they are only able to give you tastings when they have parties, but it makes sense, since they don't have a restaurant part, and they are mainly a banquet for special occasions.
We booked this banquet about a year before our wedding, and I am so glad we did, because it was definitely worth it! They gave you options of chair covers, colored napkins, uplighting, and they even have centerpieces that you can use! They made everything easy

We absolutely loved this banquet. We had our wedding reception here on Feb 6th 2016 and our guests were raving about how good the food was. They thought that Joanna our banquet manager did a great job. The hall was beautifully decorated, we had family style food, and open bar. The cake was included in the price. They had the best pricing and they were close to the church we got married at. This banquet hall only has one reception room for the whole place which is awesome because we didn't have to worry about another party being too loud or people getting confused between rooms.Sent on 02/08/2016

Peter made sure the service for our wedding and reception was absolutely fabulous. I really appreciated all of the detailed attention that the staff provided to the wedding party as well as our guests. There was a winter storm the day of our wedding and the staff made our guests feel safe and provided us with impeccable service. I would definitely recommend Lido's Banquets to our friends.Sent on 09/02/2013
