    Amazing venue must book!

    My Fiancé and I had our engagement party at Macaluso’s on April 14th and it was an absolute dream! There is not one thing I would have changed. Elias our sales rep was PHENOMENAL! I can not say enough good things about him. From the very second I called to book to the 300 times I called, he was super accommodating! So even if you think having your event here is out of reach, call anyway, they will absolutely do their best to work within your budget. All our guest raved about the food.
    It was DELICIOUS !! The aesthetic of the venue is out of this world. It is breath taking from the moment you walk in the lobby, and continues to take your breath away as you walk through the hallway into the main ballroom. Our guests could not stop raving about our party, the venue, the food! 10/10 for sure! Book your next event at Macaluso’s if you want a showstopper event. You WILL NOT be disappointed. A HUGE thank you to Elias, Maroon, and the entire Macaluso’s team for making us feel like family and ensuring we had a night to remember!

    Absolutely perfect

    I just had my wedding here on 8/14/21 and it was a fairytale. The staff and everyone there were amazing. The food all came out hot and at once for 100 people. I had a bridal assistant and she was right by my side for anything I needed the entire night. Everyone at Macaluso’s are very professional and caring. They all helped everyone with whatever was needed. It was a perfect wedding and I couldn’t of asked for more!!

    A Fairytale Wedding at Macaluso's

    My husband and I had our wedding and reception at Macaluso's on August 1, 2021. I've held off on writing this review because I've struggled to put into words how absolutely amazing EVERYTHING at Macaluso's is. From the moment we met with Maroon and saw Macaluso's, we were blown away by how beautiful and tasteful the venue is, and how warm and accommodating the staff was from the get-go. We had been planning our wedding since 2019, and had to postpone due to the pandemic. Maroon and the rest of the staff at Macaluso's were so extremely helpful and understanding throughout the entire process. Postponing your wedding is never ideal, but we felt so lucky to be working with Macaluso's... they made it as painless as possible! Maroon was with us every step of the way, and didn't miss a single detail.

    Our wedding day was truly the best day of our lives, and Macaluso's was such a big part in that. I can not even begin to explain how perfect our day was. EVERY staff member devoted every ounce of their attention to anything we needed, we were treated like royalty... but a *very* special shoutout to Maroon (our go-to!!), Nowal (a true angel), and Elias (so kind!) who really went above and beyond.

    Our guests can not stop talking about how amazing our wedding was and so many people have told us it was the best wedding they've ever been to (with the most epic cocktail hour). Actually, I can't even mention Macaluso's without someone telling me how amazing the place is. Macaluso's and their staff will always be a very special part of our lives and we look forward to many more celebrations there over the years.
