While I did not have my wedding here, I SO wanted to. Unfortunately we had too many people to work into the space (While I was looking for a cocktail reception, I also wanted there to be enough seating for everyone - I don't like being forced to stand as much as the next person!). They were very accommodating to let us see the space - I'm an out of town bride originally from the MKE area, so my parents went and saw the venue and face-timed me in. They have tons of food options and are willing to make anything you ask for from their menu(s) [yes more than 1!] or anything else you may want. They also didn't have any food minimums which takes the pressure off of anyone planning a wedding. I know it would have been grand and hope someone else can enjoy the wedding I would have had there! :)Sent on 11/02/2017

Booking our wedding and reception with Onesto was an easy choice when we saw the gorgeous private space filled with Cream City brick and exposed wood. Our decision was finalized the moment we tasted their food. The ambiance and food quality were our primary venue concerns for our small wedding and Onesto came through on those brilliantly. What we didn't know when we booked them was how amazing their staff would be as well. Christine was incredibly helpful and friendly throughout our 14-month planning process no matter how many times I blew up her email with random questions. Likewise, for our rehearsal and day-of, William and the rest of the staff were truly wonderful as well. The whole experience was absolutely perfect and I couldn't have asked for a more helpful, accommodating, and lovely team of people, or a more beautiful space for the most special day of our lives. We already celebrated our one-week anniversary at the downstairs bar and hope to keep coming back for years to come.Sent on 06/28/2018

We worked with the Hospitality Democracy team to host our rehearsal dinner at Onesto. From day one, Colleen and Christine were incredibly attentive and responsive. They answered all our questions and we were happy to book with them. They kept constant contact until our event, finalizing all the details so there was nothing to worry about. The event was flawless. Decor, food, drinks, ambiance -- all outstanding. We, along with our family and friends, had the most wonderful evening. We will be dining at Onesto for years to come and will certainly recommend them as a perfect venue option for a rehearsal dinner or wedding!Sent on 07/08/2017
