We loved having our wedding reception at Sambuca! Dana was amazing to work with-- she took care of us so well. We also really liked the atmosphere of Sambuca. It was fun to have a balcony where people could look down on the dance floor, cake cutting, etc. The food was also delicious!Sent on 09/09/2013
We originally chose Sambuca because we liked the lunch reception package (which included lunch, cake credit, DJ, and photo booth), and it ended up exceeding our expectations. We got lots of compliments from our guests, and we had a great time, too! We would highly recommend it to anyone as a wedding reception venue.

Dana and the servers at Sambuca were an absolute dream to work with. We got to create a menu that we liked, and every single guest at our reception had an excellent meal, even one guest who needed a vegan dinner. We got to use the AV system for our slideshow and the band downstairs was really fun, so we didn't even need to book a DJ or make a playlist ourselves. All of us had an amazing time... We recommend the Skyloft highly!Sent on 08/15/2013
