Macaluso's - Best Wedding Venue
I’ll preface this and say I don’t usually write reviews, but for Macaluso’s I had to make an exception. My wife and I just had our wedding there this week (Sunday 1/12), and we could not have been more impressed with every detail of our wedding. Don’t let any construction fool you - the venue is absolutely stunning, the lighting, the white marble (the pictures come out amazing..) but the food and overall service I think separate this from any other venue.Sent on 01/18/2020
My wife is Brazilian and had a couple members of her family travel in from Brazil. It was important to her to have some Brazilian dishes during the wedding. We shared this with Maroon who worked with us in planning our wedding, and he couldn’t have been more excited. He introduced us to their chefs, and worked with us to make her dream a reality. The day of the wedding, we received so many compliments about the food… Even right now thinking about it makes me hungry, it was truly that spectacular. A week later people have messaged us about the deliciousness of both the cocktail hour and the main courses. There’s no other way to put it – the food is the best.
The second differentiator was the service. Maroon is the absolute man, I have to say. In planning the wedding I found him to be both pragmatic in working within our budget, knowledgeable in his suggestions, and passionate about making our day truly a dream wedding. Other staff members during the day of the wedding went above in beyond in every aspect. My wife was treated like a queen, and could not have been happier. So many of our guests also complimented the service and were impressed to the level the staff would go to make them happy and comfortable.
It was really an amazing day, and we’re thrilled we were able to get married here. Before the wedding you start to get a little stressed with the details, but Macaluso’s took care of everything, so we could focus on enjoying our day. We couldn’t have been happier with our choice – thank you.
I shot another wonderful event for the Cake Boss' family and Macaluso's has been their choice of venue for as long as I can remember (17+ years)...always delicious food, great service and absolutely beautiful ambiance! I love working with the Macaluso's crew!
Always a pleasure working at Macaluso's!
