Not one bad thing to say
Red Mesa was absolutely the best choice for our reception. The food was delicious, the bartender was super attentive, everything was honestly just perfect that day! My guests asked me for DAYS after the event "what was in that chicken?!" I can't thank Morgan and her staff enough for going above and beyond that day, and in the weeks leading up to reception handling my constant changes and questions.Sent on 12/10/2019

The place you want in your corner during a tropical storm
From the moment we walked into Red Mesa with Morgan, the venue coordinator, we were blown away by how kind, thoughtful, professional and organized everyone was. We booked Cantinita Terrace and La Florida Ballroom for our wedding, but all the spaces floored us. A ton of high quality decorations are included in the rental price, and between that and the amazing food here, it was almost a one stop shop for our reception. I can’t say enough good things about the venue or Morgan. We had a scavenger hunt with a few clues on the terrace. But the remnants of a tropical storm blew through, and before the guests arrived Morgan moved the clues to indoor spots that mirrored their outdoor ones so the hunt made sense. The cocktail hour moved indoors, and there were extra standing tables that were set up for our guests but removed in time for dancing. Everything ran so smoothly there, and we all had such an amazing time! Truly the people you want in your corner if a tropical storm blows through.Sent on 10/20/2019

The Perfect Day!
My wedding was absolutely perfect! Aaron (event coordinator) worked well with my day of coordinator to bring all of my ideas to life. I caught a flat on the day of rehearsal, causing us to be late, but Aaron was flexible and also provided us ample time to set up for the big day. The rooftop was great for my ceremony and the hall area was great for my reception.
The entire team was swift in moving chairs and everything was set up just like I wanted. I also like that they don't charge the couple to have a cash bar, as I know some venues will charge you a portion.Sent on 09/12/2019
