    Where do I begin.. JIM IS THE BEST!! Our wedding was on 6-9-18 and we booked this amazing place about a year and a half ago! Jim was very helpful and accommodating with our requests. We had about 130 people in our wedding.. and they were all super comfortable! The food was amazing! People were in love with the delicious pernil and penne in vodka sauce.. everything was super yummy! Everybody in the GVB were super helpful... from the super friendly bartender and valet guys.. to the servers and last but not least.. Jim! He is super responsive, organized and very calmed.. specially in a day that could be stressful. Overall we were very happy with our experience and would definitely recommend GVB!!
