    Best banquet hall for our wedding reception!

    Our wedding was on June 26, 2021 and it was the best day of our life and we had a blast! Lido Banquets & Events was clean, organized, food was great and everything well served. Andre was professional and I was 100% comfortable with our communication after my husband and I postponed our original wedding date due to the COVID-19 pandemic. I have had dozens of family members call and compliment on how beautiful the hall was and how great the food and service was.
    Every table was serviced by a very nice and attentive stuff, my guests felt good and well taken care of and of that i must thank
    I would highly recommend this venue for your event!

    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.

    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.
