    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.

    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.
